Posted by The Sims 4

Public Spaces in The Sims 4 can not be edited by the player. SimGuruGraham confirmed this today on Twitter. Public Spaces are not to be confused with Residential and Community lots, they are areas with objects in them that Sims will use, such as park objects.

The Sims 4: SimGuruSarah Comments on Apartments
Posted by The Sims 4

Back in August 2013, EB World subscribers received a vague email with reference to apartments in The Sims 4:

The long wait for The Sims is over, and it’s looking better than ever! In the newly announced Sims 4 you can create the stories you’ve always wanted to tell. Will you make dramatic love triangles or generation long family feuds? Create the mansion of your dreams or make your Sims tough it out in a shabby apartment? You can do all this and so much more in The Sims 4! 


But just a few days ago, SimGuruSarah pretty much confirmed that the ability to build apartments will not be a feature in The Sims 4 Base Game:

Although these renders may have shown up on official sites in the last week, I’m positive they have not been posted to SimsVIP yet. With that said, here are two new renders from EA’s official press site.

The Sims 4: Small Tidbit Regarding Active Lots
Posted by The Sims 4


SimGuruGraham has revealed some more info on loading screens and active lots in The Sims 4. He posted the following tidbit over at Mod The Sims:

tedw asked: If I’m understanding Graham’s last post right, you can only travel between neighborhoods by visiting a lot? Because one has to be active for you to go there.
SimGuruGraham replied: Correct. After the loading screen finishes you don’t start inside/on the lot, you start on the sidewalk in front of the lot. Whether you choose to walk onto the active lot or wander off into the neighborhood is entirely up to you. No matter if you’re traveling to another lot in the current neighborhood, to another neighborhood, or to a different world entirely, you’ll always select a lot as your destination because there is always one active lot.
