Are the mods your using all up to date?

Specifically the following mods:

CyberBob78_AmyTestObject

Dance Rug

HuckJones_Galaxy_Y

MegaGold

Skull_Skeleton Motocrcle_lhawk07

whiteriderMTS_NoCurfew

NoBuildSparkles

nointro

If they aren't, or you don't know for sure, try copying them to a safe place and then removing them from the mods folder before launching the game again. Also make sure to delete the scriptCache.package file so that the game generates a new one.

OK, try this. Make a copy of your save game(s) to a safe place then delete the following folder: My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3

Relaunch the game and give it a few minutes to re-create the Sims 3 folder, then go into the game and create a new one. If you want you can save the new game with your save game's name as once we see if this fixed the map/world view you can copy your save game back and overwrite when prompted.

Just a suggestion, have you tried going to the AMD website and downloading the auto detect and install, to check and install new graphic card driver updates? If you haven't just try it, check in game for the issue, if it doesn't happen then great, if it still happens then post back.

Also, if you notice any glitches/bad graphics after updating your drivers (that's if they're not already up to date) just post back that the update made things worst, and if you don't know how to roll it back, just say and we'll post how. Smile

Sadly I'm not on my PC that has Sims 3 installed, so I can't confirm exactly what should be in that folder. However just curious as to whether you've tried playing in windowed mode and/or if this has made a difference?

/EDIT: Just wondering does this issue occur in ALL towns you have? Or just sunlit tides? Please try playing Sunset valley or another town to see if it occurs.

Do you just have the base game? If so, the crack that's provided by games4theworld will not work with your game. If that's the case, please follow the instructions here. DO NOT skip any of the steps. Smile

And yes, your Options file should definitely have a lot more in it than that.

Alright. If you say so, I believe you lol Smile

Honestly though, I think that might be where part of your problem is. I'd recommend installing at least one of the expansions supported by the crack so you could try the game with that.

That is really strange.. It kind of scares me, because I'm getting a new computer soon. :l

But anyways. Does it only do this in that world? Or is it any of them? Because that is definitely an added in world, so if it's just in that one, it could be something with the download went wrong.

I'm not sure if that would work, let's wait and see what admin thinks about that before you copy anybody else's options.

Hello,

That's because the game isn't compatible with Windows 8 yet. Windows 8 isn't officially released yet, either. So don't bother playing TS3 on Windows 8, it's know to cause a lot of problems with the game.
What he means by "compatibility mode", is probably playing the game in Windows 7 compatibility mode, while he's on Windows 8.
