My Sims become 2-Dimensional and don’t slide over the slide at all. They do appear at the other end after the end of the animation.
This issue is caused by Intel Graphics Chips (Mac and PC) and Nvidia cards with old drivers.
If your computer has both a graphics chip and a graphics card, make sure the game runs on the card.
Also make sure that your drivers are up-to-date.
