DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.

It's The Sims 3 but for the consoles. Is there really anything else you need to know?

Debug Options

The codes under this section are written for the base game, without any applied patches or updates. Codes may differ on later revisions!

Debug Displays

NOTE: The screenshot has both displays combined in one for simplicity's sake.

Draw Light Rigs

Draw Occluders

This option requires Draw Light Rigs to be enabled, or else the game will crash!

Allow True Specular Probes

This option is enabled by default, and disabling it has some changes to lighting

Draw Proxman Lights (slow)
