@crinrict has compiled a list of issues and bugs at Crinrict's Sims 4 Help Blog
New Issues – Patch 1.24.102
New Issues – City Living

My personal experience has been ... hmm  ... interesting.
I have had a few of the gliches on those lists. In spite of that I have to say there is a variety of things I do like in this EP.
The one thing in particular I do not like is the camera action. When moving from apartment to ground level or vice versa the camera has that awkward jump. The festivals are fun but I have yet to determine their schedule. I am using a single Sim and just had her join the Social Media career. Still figuring out that one. Maybe living in the city just is not my cup 'o tea?
I still want to experiment with the City Living features just not living in an apartment.

@EuphorialQueen    Have you tried playing a different apartment? Maybe the jump wouldn't be so bad. I have more than one sim in my household, so I usually send one sim out of the building while being ticked on another sim and then hit the camera on the sim in the city after he/she has "landed". Whistle



Sara caught her lover making a bunch of loud "love noises" in his apartment.....not good!


She promptly asked for her key back.


Kira made a wish in the fountain.



Felix is working in the critic career. I really enjoy it.

I had a weird thing happen, my sims co-workers showed up and walked right in to her apartment. I had to lock the door to household only to keep them out. They haven't come back. She's in the social networking career.

My child sim did not have the option to go to school when the GameCon festival started.....must have been a holiday??  

Hope to have time to play today.

You can view the SimsVIP City Living game guide here


I have searched all over and I can't seem to find anything about how to interact with the landlord. Do you have to live in the cheap apartments? Thanks for any help!

Ok so I handed EA $42.00 this morning for City Living. I'm such a sell out when it comes to this game, I just. cannot. say. no. Ha HA

Anyways, I'm currently writing a story over on Simtech and moved my two "friend" sims to San Myshuno and put them in apartment 888 Spire. (In uptown). I got a wish for my gal to Enjoy apartment view (from lot trait) and I LOVE that we have this back!

The festivals don't seem to come on a weekly schedule. Maybe it's bi-weekly.
I wanted my Sim Aster to do the flea market again for some extra cash so was miffed when the next Sunday the Flea Market didn't happen.
Had a problem with my Sim attending festivals after visiting all of them when they were first offered and that's when I discovered a Sim can visit a festival unless it's 'offered' in an 'announcement'. She had a visitor to her apartment when an 'announcement' popped up but she couldn't go because of a current activity ( her visitor ). There was no offer to go with someone and when I got rid of the visitor she could go to the festival. She's a musician and her work schedule doesn't give her much time at some of the festivals. I wish she had a little balcony with her apartment so she could have a grill and grow a few of those aliens plants she had in her inventory when she moved to the city. Aster is the youngest child of Liberty Lee ( from BFF house ) and Adriel Grover.
I recently deleted my TS4 saves by half and hope to be able to merge some families, via marriage maybe, and cut the saves even more. It's hard to let go. Laughing

Letting go is extremely hard!




I noticed some trash piling up in the common area and sent my sim to clean it up. I assumed he'd bring it back into the apartment to throw it away but he waved "no" at me that's when I noticed the trash shoot emitting green goo. He had the option to repair it....which I think it said "remove jam".

What's going on with this 'queue' thing on Origin? I can't play TS4 nor Medieval because they are in queue for updating. Have no idea how long this will go on for either. It's already been over an hour. scratch Maybe there's some info on the forum about what's going on.

Had a time problem last time I played, or so it seemed. The clock would go fast but it would be the wrong time then it seemed to reset and it would be the correct time of day. I couldn't make heads nor tails of it so was glad when it stopped doing that.

A word about Music and Singing in City Living

Trinity is Level 9 Singing and Level 7 Guitar. I noticed the option to Write Lyrics. I wondered if this would count toward writing a song.
It does not Sad  
I found out though the skills are related (instruments and singing) the Written Songs can be published but Written Lyrics cannot be published.

The Sims 4 Singing Skill - Carl's Guide
Carl's Guide wrote:
Writing songs unlocks at level 8 and licensing them is level 9. Singing is another way to earn money from music in The Sims 4, and in combination with the other instruments is viable as a self-employment career. However, it is one that requires substantially more work due to the effort required to master the instruments.
It takes 12 full hours to write a song, though you can resume writing one if necessary. Licensed songs generate income for 7 full days, and can range from $200 to $800 per day. Income is distributed daily at 10AM. You can have one song of each type - microphone, guitar, and piano counting only City Living and the Sims 4 base game. Songs written for lyrics on the guitar count as 'microphone'. You can then write a song that is instrumental for the two other instruments. Writing 3 songs a week, you could earn between $600-2000+ per day in royalties, but you'd need to continually produce more music for it to stay viable as a career choice. Expect to spend 36 hours per week writing music if you go this route.

Very interesting, thank you for posting that information @EuphorialQueen Cool



I ran into a glitch yesterday. The power went out in my sim's apartment so she complained to the landlord. He came to fix it and was "dazed". The power did not come back on.  When hover over lights, it said there was no power. No option on the power box to "repair". I went into manage worlds and out. The lights were still off but I was able to tick on the lights and turn them on.


While the repairman was still at the apartment, Kira's toilet broke. I had her repair it. I ticked on the repairman while she was still repairing and the option to have him mentor her was there. Pretty cool.

Thank you for posting that info EQ, it explains a lot of things. I'd given up on the song writing option for my Sim and changed her aspiration. Then she levels up and gets the song writing option.

So my sim bought these cute spice jars at the Spice Festival. Are these just decorative or can they actually spice up meals with them?  I've tried a couple times with them in my sim's inventory and with them placed in the world. Maybe I am not doing it correctly.



Never seen the dishwasher door hanging open before.....it worked properly.


Looks like pictures are uploading blurry. Anyone else having this problem?

hmm  
Sims 4 Festival Guide – Spice Festival posted by Sims4 Time website.
Quote :
What’s on sale at the Sims 4 Spice Festival
The merchandise stall offers festival t-shirts as well as a range of Spice Festival fireworks, sparklers and bubble blower bottles.  It also offers the exclusive freezer bunny snow globe and the following spices:
Chill Powder
Curry
Saffron
Wasabi
The spices are used to make the unlockable recipes you learn by eating from food stalls.
The spice festival also has three food stalls selling the following items:
Mexican
Taquitos
Empanadas
Bean and Cheese Burrito
Chicken Burrito
Spinach Wrapped Veggie Burrito
Tomato Wrapped Veggie Burrito
_
Indian
Samosa
Bhei Puri
Curry
_
Thai
Goi Cuon
Banh Mi
Pho

I wonder if this is like other foods that use 'fresh ingredients'.

My first City Sim bought quite a few of the spices at the festival but I haven't noticed her using them in her cooking. ( Note to self to notice....)

I have seen the Fridge door stuck open before. Cannot remember how I fixed it but I think I just moved it in build mode and it fixed itself.
