Kotaku: Amazing Sims Patch Notes


If you are not yet familiar with the world of Sims patch notes, please allow us to make your day. Over the past few years, EA’s ridiculous simulation game has been chock full of ridiculous bugs, and rather than ruin them by paraphrasing, I’ve rounded up the best ones right here, all taken verbatim from actual Sims updates.
