There’s a new Sims 4 update available now in Origin. If you have automatic updates enabled in Origin’s “Application Settings”, the game will auto update once you open Origin. If you have auto updates disabled, you will need to manually update by clicking on the game in your library.
To ensure your game is up to date, check the game version found in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 > GameVersion.txt. Your game should now read: 184.108.40.206. If you have updated but it is not showing the correct game version, start the game, shut it down, and then it will be corrected.
Remove all MODS and Custom Content before updating your game
Update: 11/25/2014 – Version 220.127.116.11
Just a small update for the end of November! Hopefully you have kept healthy this past month. It feels as though a minor plague has swept through the Studio, knocking folks down one after another. But that aside, we have fixed some crashes, addressed some community concerns, and sorted out a few other fixes that just happened to sneak their way into this release.
As always, the community has been doing an excellent job of keeping us on our toes. A new batch of fixes is on its way out with this release, including the un-breaking of the Add to Family cheat, a Sim pruning issue, and some water opacity issues. Thank you for your feedback, keep it up!
The Sims 4 Cash Card that first appeared at Target in October, has now made its way to the shelves of Walmart. We have yet to hear any official information on what type of “Game” and “Stuff” packs the card refers to, but we should get some information soon considering the cards are now showing up in more retail stores.
As a reminder, Cash Cards are alternate methods of purchasing games on Origin when you don’t want to use a credit/debit card or PayPal. This is similar to purchasing a pre-paid Mastercard/Visa/Amex, but instead, adds funds to your EA Wallet. These cards have nothing to do with Simpoints or Sims 4 currency, and can be used to purchase any games on Origin.
The last poll asked readers to give The Sims 4 a “score” based on their overall experience. With 4,349 votes, the most popular score for The Sims 4 was “4 Stars”.

The Sims team has launched an online version of The Sims 4 Gallery, and this tutorial will show you how to download and install the content you want in your game. Unlike the in-game gallery, content you download from the online gallery is only available once you have restarted your game.
Visit The Sims 4 Gallery on TheSims.com and browse for content you want in game. You can sort content using the filters available on the top left of the gallery.
Expanding your game with new creations just got easier with the release of The Sims™ 4 Gallery on TheSims.com! The Gallery can now be accessed using any internet browser and features all of the Community created households, lots, and rooms from The Sims 4. The best part: when you are signed in with your Origin™ Account you can save your favorite creations to download automatically into The Sims 4 the next time you play.
To get the most out of the Gallery on TheSims.com, we encourage you to login using your Origin ID. Once logged in, you can browse the entire Gallery using search options like keywords or hashtags, as well as like and comment on your favorites. Every creation in the Gallery can be shared with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks using the unique link. You don’t even need to own The Sims 4 to view the Gallery, but it is required for some features. If you are not signed in with your Origin Account, you will only be able to view Maxis curated content.
Visit the Gallery on TheSims.com and start exploring! It’s now easier than ever to discover new content and add new experiences to your game.
