Fixes and updates

The Sims 4

  • The Digitalistic Sketchpad will no longer occasionally lose the majority of its interactions.
  • Style Influencer Career interactions that were causing child Sims to become distorted are no longer available for selection on children.
  • Fixed an issue where ghost Sims were unable to use a Book of Life to resurrect themselves.
  • Seed Packets can no longer become hidden under the ground on slightly uneven terrain.
  • Being insulted by the Lin-Z Smart Speaker will now cause relationship loss between the Sim and the speaker.
  • Wake-up routines set on the Lin-Z Smart Speaker will now continue to run, even if a Sim no longer has a high relationship with the speaker.
  • The Gallery has a new size filter to assist in searching for 40x40 lots.
  • One caveat: The new filter will not find 40x40 lots that were uploaded to the Gallery prior to this game update.
  • Camera Positions saved to the “9” key could conflict with using the “9” key to raise an object in the air when the bb.moveobjects cheat is turned on. To resolve this, we’ve introduced the ability to clear out a previously saved camera position.
  • Existing Camera Position functionality:
  • “Ctrl” + “5-9” will set a saved camera position.
  • Once a camera position has been saved…
  • “5-9” keys will smoothly move the camera to that position.
  • “Shift” + “5-9” will immediately snap the camera to that position.
  • New Camera Position functionality:
  • “Alt” + “5-9” will remove a previously saved camera position from the selected number.
  • When time is paused after initially loading into a lot, pressing either the “~” or “p” keys will now unpause the game, instead of requiring that you press one of the game speed keys to unpause.
  • Hotkeys will no longer be able to open various Sim information panels that are locked during the Tutorial.
  • Fixed an issue where a Sim could become stuck in the Tutorial if they traveled to a park without taking a vacation day off from work.
  • Players will no longer be notified that someone has commented on their Gallery profile, if they were the ones writing a comment to their own profile.
  • It seems a little egotistical to comment on your own profile…but hey — we’re not judging you.
  • The main menu once again includes a link to the most recent patch notes.
  • If that’s how you’ve made your way to reading these very words, then hello — thanks for stopping by!
