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 188.8.131.520 (PC) / 184.108.40.2060 (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.

It’s May, and I’ve got a bag full of fixes… wait that’s more of a December reference. I’ve got a shower of fixes for… that’s April.
May is Autumn and Spring (depending on where you live). It’s the beginning of the end of another school year. It’s the end of an egg-citing challenge. It’s May the 4th be with you! And it’s when I have a whole bunch of updates to share with you in this release!
I’m really sorry about the egg pun. It’s best if we both could just forget it ever happened and move along…
The Sims team has just let us know that a brand new game patch is being released today. According to EA, this patch will include “a ton” of improvements and bug fixes, but we’re also getting some snazzy new Star Wars Costumes to celebrate Star Wars Day. We will have patch notes available once the update goes live. Stay tuned!
We’re releasing a patch today that includes some cool Star Wars goodness!
The free Update will include three new costumes to celebrate May 4th: Boba Fett, Darth Maul, and Jedi Master Aayla Secura. The costumes look really cool, and we think you’ll love them.
There’s a lot more to the patch than those costumes. This patch has a ton of bug fixes and improvements. The full patch notes will be posted on the forums soon, so you’ll be able to get the full run-down there.
May the Fourth Be With You!

Zerbu Tabek has just released The Sims 4: Get To School Mod. If you’re looking for some additional schooling game play, this is the mod for you. Be sure to click the links in his post for more information on each feature.
You will need to have a school lot in your world for the mod to work properly. If you don’t, it will act strangely. You can either download one from the gallery, or build your own. To find one on the gallery, select “Lot” as a filter tag then select “Elementary School” or “High School” as a venue type. The school lot will need to be set as an “Elementary School” or “High School” in build mode.
Sometimes, when downloading a lot from the gallery, the game won’t automatically register it to the career events system. After downloading a school lot from the gallery or placing one from your library, set the lot type to something random, exit build mode, enter build mode again then set the lot type to the correct type. If this is your first time using the mod, I strongly suggest saving before sending a Sim to school for the first time, just to make sure you didn’t make any mistakes.
Please remember that this is a mod, not official content, so don’t expect Expansion Pack or Game Pack quality.
Each week we compile a list of mods that have been released to help make your gaming experience more pleasant and unique. Be sure to use The Sims 4 Mods Category Tag for future reference.
