February 2, 2017 Patch Notes

Update: 02/02/2017 – PC Version 1.27.80.1020 / Mac Version 1.27.80.1220

Happy Anniversary Simmers!

It was 16 years, 11 months, and 29 days ago that the Sims were born!! And we wanted to be the first to wish you all a Happy 16th11th29th Anniversary!

Since then, there have been well over a 100 Sim births and deaths. 10s of homes built, and burned, and...

Ok, look, they don’t actually give me any real stats. I’m sure I’m close though… somewhere within a light year of error… it’s all relative.

This little life-simulation game about telling stories, controlling lives, burning down kitchens, inviting the neighbors to hang out in your basement and then removing the doors, building amazing homes, and just watching their lives unfold as you tweak away, is now (almost) 17 years old, and we hope you have, had, and will have fun with The Sims!

With that, we have just a little new…

The Main Menu has gone through a small redressing.

Upon your next load, you will be met with a new, but hopefully familiar looking, Main Menu. The summary of changes being:

  • Continue (the big play button), other than a location shift, functions exactly as it did
  • New Game and Load Game have come down from their hidden corner, and are now found alongside the Continue button.
  • Adding a household to an existing save is located on the Map view screen in the lower right
  • The upper right menus have been simplified to only include Gallery and the Options menu
  • And the lower left contains all the information you might want regarding packs.


We’ve also added a shirt (for toddlers and older) to celebrate the 17th anniversary (found in Create a Sim in the T-Shirt sort).

And we have a couple of critical issue fixes…

General Issues

  • We addressed an issue that could cause the baby to disappear upon age up.

    • While this is joyous news for parents everywhere, this does pose a significant population issue in Neverland. And we can only wait out the potential pirate to lost boy gap, as it draws ever closer in the favor of the pirates.


  • We addressed an issue that could result in toddlers being placed down through a wall, and outside of their home, if carried to use an object that was against an outer wall.

    • Ask any parent, and they will tell you “Of course toddlers are magical!” Ask them again to place their toddlers through a wall, and they will yell at your ridiculous suggestion.

      • It’s a two-faced world folks, and we’re just living in it.




  • Addressed an issue that could cause a toddler to become stuck next to an elevator upon loading the lot.

    • This fix will address future occurrences, however, to correct the issue in an already saved game, travel to another lot with the toddler and return.


  • We addressed an out of sync voice and animation issue that was causing our Sims to be ever so slightly off.

    • Had that early film feel, except without the cool fighting, or person in rubber monster suit scenes.




Outdoor Retreat

  • Rental Lots can now have their lot type changed, and are no longer locked in Granite Falls.


Get Together

  • Club perks and points will no longer reset after loading into an unowned lot and then returning.


And with that… we wish you a happy journey with us on The Sims, and look forward to your machinima, blogs, tweets, posts, screens, and vids of all things Sims.

Remember that one time when the entire lawn caught fire and killed several of the neighbors?
Or how about when you got a phone call asking if you wanted a baby and POOF one magically appeared in the living room in a bassinet.
Plant Sims were a thing and had to be out in sunlight or bask in the light of a greenhouse lamp to stay alive.
The Servo would go out in the rain and short out.
The Gardener came to your lot followed by another ... and another ,,, and another until there was an entire army of Gardeners. (This happened in my game)

Surprised I didn't see that button! But then again I never made it past the launch screen. Had a massive sinus/migraine headache yesterday, still little twinges of the remains of that headache today but at least it doesn't feel like my eye's want to fall out of my head and I want to hide from the daylight. bat

Ahhh...., fixes! Like the new menu look.

I'd forgotten about the Sim('s) cloud gazing and being killed by a meteor and pregnant Sims starving to death and, oh well, I'm just glad those old things aren't currently in Sims 4. Whistle

Mamajanaynay, I sympathize with your sinus problems. Sinus headaches are the worse. After years of suffering, Drs decided my sinus headaches were migraines.hmm Didn't help me feel better to find that out.

Hiding from daylight you say?
hmm

The new button is right as you go into the save and before you select which household to play.

@Gramcrackers Ahhhh... death by Meteor!
Had a couple of those and they were awesome except for the part where your Sim became a crispy critter and turned to a pile of ash. Surprised
