Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

Entire game works as expected with every dlc enabled with minor issues.

Mods work well.

What does not

razeroptionenabled should not be set to "1" in Options.ini, this will cause a crash everytime the game launches, since it cannot find a file named "CChromaEditorLibrary64.dll".

In-game options this is known as "Enable keyboard dynamic lightning"

Workarounds

What was not tested

Having more than four sims at the same lot.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

noticeably lower FPS than windows.

Especially when moving the camera as it will cut the fps in half or even to a third of the normal speed.

Lowering the graphical quality will remedy some of the camera lag.
