The Sims 4.
General game play.
What does not
Dependencies, see Workarounds.
Installing d3dx9_43 via winetricks may fix graphics and lag problems. Depending on kernel version, changing your systems graphic's driver may also help. And if you use Lutris ensure to disable the prefix's DXVK if it's enabled.
May also require the workarounds for Origin.
If you get the file permissions bug for Origin please look up a more instructions they may vary based on distro.
What was not tested
Was experiencing stuttering and eventually severe lag that lead to no response whatsoever. The draw distance was so messed up a tree looked like a paper cut out after zooming out once. Though after I changed drivers the lag wasn't so bad and the trees weren't paper cutouts but the game still wasn't playable.
