We love all the cool stuff that our fans make in The Sims 4, and we want to highlight some of the craziest creations! Each Simmer Spotlight will feature someone making awesome stuff in the game with a few tips on how to make your own.
First up is Ian Roach. You may have seen his creations from The Sims 4. I asked him a few questions about some of the amazing stuff he has been building.
• What inspired you to start building TV show sets?
It started with the CAS Demo. Once I had created all of my family and friends, I needed a new challenge, so I started recreating characters from my favorite TV shows. Once the game was released, the obvious next step was to build their TV homes.
SimGuruGraham went to check out what the video team was working on, and brought us back this sneak peek of pools in The Sims 4. Pools will be available free of charge in an upcoming November game update.
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: 1.0.797.20. 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: 10/21/2014 – Version 1.0.797.20
Hello Simmers, readers of patch notes, and other developers who just happen to be searching the internet for examples of how other teams are writing up their release notes!
We had a few issues we felt needed to be addressed sooner rather than later, and have tackled them in today’s patch! Many of these issues were brought forth by the community through the forums. We thank you for your efforts, your posts, and your focus in helping us create a better experience with The Sims 4.
Some bugs you might be keen to know were fixed: The “Eye and jaw width looks funky” bug! The “I can’t get married if my fiancé died” issue! And the “My Sims can’t age up anymore” bug.
The other issues which we have fixed are detailed below, and we are always dedicated to fixing performance and gameplay blocking issues in order to provide the best gaming experience possible. Please keep posting on the forums. We do read them and we are tracking issues that you are finding. Thank you!
