I'm trying to find the best graphics settings for my Mac but can't compare because I can't see what the framerate is. How do I display the framerate on SimCity?


Bring up the console (press "~") and type PerfOverlay.DrawFPS 1. To remove the FPS counter, use the same command but replace the 1 with a 0.

  • Hi this doesn't work. This is the latest SimCity that is on Origin. – Jeremey Aug 10 '16 at 5:46
  • Well what happens when you enter the command? – imulsion Aug 10 '16 at 11:54
  • Nothing, '~' doesn't do anything. – Jeremey Aug 20 '16 at 18:28

    OK, it may be a different key or key combination. Try "`" or CTRL+SHIFT+C – imulsion Aug 20 '16 at 18:49
