Sims 2 Settings: Anti-aliasing & Ambient Occlusion. Empty Sims 2 Settings: Anti-aliasing & Ambient Occlusion.

Post by Summerbear5 on Thu 26 Jul 2018, 01:45

Hello, I have the Nvidia Control Panel pulled up in hopes I could tweak a few settings to get The Sims 2 to look better. Right now in my game at night time the pool lights are not casting the light/shadows properly...This doesn't matter if I have lighting on High or Medium. 

Should I have:
Ambient Occlusion On/Off?
Antialiasing - FXAA  On/Off?
Any other thing I should have On/Off? 

Any other suggestions?

You can try turning on/tweaking the Anti-aliasing, which is more about softening the outer edges of objects/sims. As for the Ambient occlusion (and the whole lights/shadows thing in general), never paid much attention to it in The Sims 2. But yes, please try tweaking Ambient occlusion as well, and let us know the results!

Carlos is tha man

Ambient Occlusion wasn't available to turn on. And I turned on Anti-aliasing but that didn't work for the lighting issue. Thank you anyways I guess I'll live with it lol. I just don't know what other settings to mess with.
