The newest Sims 4 patch has added a number of new features to The Sims 4 Base Game, and in the video below I showcase some of the bigger features that are now available to all players of The Sims 4. Enjoy!
The latest Sims 4 patch enabled a fun “Bunny Egg Hunt” within the game that allows your Sims to collect decorative eggs around town. This egg hunt is only available through the month of April, but you will be able to keep everything you find. This tutorial will explain how to find the each of the decorative eggs.
There are 10 Decorative Eggs to be found in the game, and finding them is fairly easy, so long as you’re willing to hunt them down. Eggs can be commonly found in the “Fallen Logs” around town which are known to house frogs. These fallen logs spawn around town at different times in different places, and they spawn eggs at random.
Decorative Eggs are also found when harvesting plants and digging in rock outcroppings
The latest Sims 4 Patch has added a new “My Packs” feature to the main menu of the game. When clicking the triple-diamond button on the upper right side of the screen, you will be greeted with any and all content that you own for The Sims 4. This includes soon-to-be released games, as well as the ones you already own.
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: Version 184.108.40.2060 (PC) / 220.127.116.110 (Mac). If you have updated but it is not showing the correct game version, delete the GameVersion.txt file, restart the game, and all will be corrected.
Remove all MODS and Custom Content before updating your game
Update: 03/26/2015 – PC Version 18.104.22.1680 / Mac Version 22.214.171.1240
It’s the end of March and Get to Work is inches away from your fingertips. However, but before you work your way into a new expansion, we’ve got a release full of stuff.
We’ve got NEW! We’ve got UPDATES! We’ve got Bunny Eggs? We’ve got performance improvements! We’ve got fixes! And hopefully you are comfortable as you read on.
So, let’s jump in with…
The Sims 4 has had its critics – mainly for lack of simple features like swimming pools and ghosts. Yet, to Maxis’ and EA’s credit, many of the community’s niggles have been worked out in free patches since the game was released in September last year.
We got a chance to interview one of The Sims 4’s producers, Azure Bowie-Hankins, whilst testing out the game’s first, brand new expansion pack – Get To Work. The community involvement is exactly what drives The Sims forward as a series, especially with The Sims 4.
There’s such a huge appeal to The Sims as a series. From 20-something guys looking for a different pace from fast and action-packed shooters, to a younger audience who like playing with Sims as they would a doll house; the audience has no boundaries.

EA Germany is hosting a Sims 4 Get To Work competition, where players have a chance to win a Sims branded Fatboy Lamp. The contest is open to residents of Germany, Austria and Switzerland only.
Hello everyone! SimGuruRomeo here to give you a quick look at basements in The Sims 4, part of a free update releasing on March 26. When we started working on basements we wanted to make sure they were special. These aren’t just any basements, these are The Sims 4 basements. That means maintaining the flexibility of game’s building systems. We wanted basements to really take advantage of the tools you already know how to use, and to allow the same level of creativity we’ve seen since launch.
For those of you planning on pre-ordering The Sims 4 Get To Work, know that you only have a week left to do so! If you’d like to learn more about the expansion be sure to check out our Sims 4 Get To Work Preview Mega Post. You can pre-order The Sims 4 Get To Work on Origin or other retailers worldwide.
In The Sims 4, we were impressed with Sims’ wide breadth of emotions and their newfound ability to multitask, but we admitted in our review that the base game was (unsurprisingly) “barren” of content, readying itself for countless expansion packs to come. Between then and now, EA has countered this by releasing staggered online updates containing new features, and in January the game received its first, camping-themed ‘Game Pack’ – add-on content that offered a bit more extra gameplay than any of The Sims 3’s numerous Stuff Packs.
And now The Sims 4’s first full expansion pack, The Sims 4: Get to Work is imminent. Some were initially sceptical about the expansion – would three new playable career tracks and the reintroduction of The Sims 2’s retail business feature offer enough compelling content in return for its $40 price tag? I spent an entire day with Get to Work to find out.
