Lower In-game Graphics

Please note it's normal for the game and it's camera to have some stuttering when zooming in/out and scrolling around, even with having better graphics cards due to the way the game has been optimized.

However, if you are having issues running the game, such as in graphics stuttering or low frame rate, here are a couple of things you can try:  (Click thumbnails for larger view.)

Click the Options button - It's the 3 dots (...) in the upper right corner of the Main Menu. Select Game Options.


Under Graphics, try setting all graphics options to medium or low to see if that helps.

Try different resolutions under Display. For example 1366x768.

 --- Under Graphics:

Uncheck Uncompressed Sim Textures. (This will help take less memory)

Uncheck Post Processing Effects (Turning this off helps lower end computers play the game better.)

Checking Laptop Mode may help play the game smoother, but visual quality will be lower.

The Sims games aren't meant to be played at higher resolutions. They do not run 4K. They do better with a resolution of 1920x1080 or lower. - This game was not designed to run in resolutions higher than 1080p.

Though, if you do want to try running the game at 4K, try doing so in Windowed Mode. Playing in windowed mode takes some of the stress off the video card.

In Origin > Games Library, right-click Sims 4 and select Game Properties > Advanced Launch Options and In the Command Line Arguments, add the following text: -w and click Okay.
