Sims Disappear When Walking across street

Postby scalad » Tue Apr 13, 2010 7:28 am

Hi. I just got a new computer and I reinstalled Simscity deluxe edition(original game and it's expansion on one disc). I had it previously installed on my old computer and this same thing happened. The sims disappear or are pixelated when they walk across the street. Is it meant to be like this?

The other thing is I have the shadows turned off but I have smooth edging on medium or high if I exit the game and come back into it the edging of the objects irough again yet the medium or high is still selected I have to keep adjusting it.

Sims becoming transpant when crossing streets are normal.

Thank you! I never knew that. Now I just have to sort out the anti-aliasing thing.

It's supposed to do that. Once you surpass a certain number of combined Workers and Special Sims, everyone disappears randomly to prevent your graphics from lagging, crashing, or spewing funny colored lines.
Jesus loves yiou and died for you! :D
