Better AA and textures
Hello guys! Is there a ways to make anti-aliasing and texture in game better? I tried to max the AA with Nvidia Inspector but it takes many performance. Usually I played in 60 fps, and about 40 fps when driving cars at town. I've already looking at Google, there are some thread about this at MTS. But almost all of them have a *high-end" GPU.

well yeah. the higher you increase quality, the lower the performance. It's called a performance tax.

There. Mystery solved.

After over fifty years, Moore's Law was broken at last around. A CPU then is about as dense and powerful as a CPU in 2020 AD. Today, you are paying for more CPU Cores, not a stronger CPU. If you have a CPU less than six years old, you have more than enough computing power to run "Sims III" with ease... assuming you have at least two, preferably four CPU Cores.

Your resident prude! A pox on all who remove the "censor blurs" on showering (etc.) Sims!

He's talking about GPU not CPU, but that does raise the question, are there multi-core GPU these days? That would be sweet.

I changed the graphic settings in game to max, except high details lot. It doesnt add any performance lag, but the AA seems to only work at building, not sims. Some post said that I can inject an another type of AA, called MSAA (cmiiw). The website said that MSAA is suitable for medium-low computer. It is safe to add MSAA into the game? And how?

It's not a "lag" it is a tax. If you use no AA and high AA, you'll notice a FPS drop. Well, unless you got a really high end GPU.

You can try it if you like, nobody is stopping you.

Reshade is an option. It has different aliasing solutions. You can also sharpen the overall screen. Making textures better than 2k causes slow loading of sims though, you’ll see a lot more low LOD sims in-frame before they become high textured.
I use Reshade for some sharpening, vibrancy, and also AO. I feel like AO makes the game look much better and more modern

Edit: If you want to increase textures btw, they’re called HQ mods and they replace your graphic rules file, back up your old one in case you want to roll back. They are quite easy to edit yourself, though. This will only affect textures on the sims. I don’t think object textures can be improved.

After adding AO, my game looks much better, its eliminates *almost* all of the jagging lines. And it cost only slightly performance drop. Thank you guys, for helping.

A little bit OOT question: NRaas Overwatch always noticing unroutable sim found for some of sim in my town. How to fix that? My world is Lag now.
