The Sims 3 allows you to immerse your unique Sims in an open living neighborhood right outside their door. The initial feature-set unveiled includes the new seamless, open neighborhood, new Create-A-Sim, new realistic personalities (every Sim is a unique person, with a distinct personality) and new unlimited customization, You can customize everything!
Under Direct3D, when active, the censor effect can cause slight graphical corruption. It will return back to normal when the censor effect is no longer on-screen. It can even crash Dolphin after a message box about "CreateTexture failed" or "Poke Z not implemented". Use OpenGL to avoid this problem.
The censor is also not in the right spot under Direct3D. OpenGL renders correctly.
The censor effect may cause VPS slow-down no matter what backend. Enable "Skip EFB Access from CPU" to fix this, although it will allow you to see your Sims like a nude Barbie doll. This also prevents graphical corruption under Direct3D.
Fixed some time before.
