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: 188.8.131.52. 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 184.108.40.206
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.
