The latest Sims 3 Patch 1.63 brings new game options, interactions & features. Below is a compiled list of these new features, and if there are any I have missed, please let me know in the comments!
Create a Sim Ghosts
The patch has added three brand new ghosts in create a sim. Death by Time Anomaly, Death by Falling from the Sky, and Future Urnstone Hologram (Ghosts of the Future) are now available in CAS when creating a ghost. These new ghost types are only available when you have The Sims 3 Supernatural Expansion Pack installed.
Interactive Loading Screens (Optional)
The Sims 3 Into the Future includes brand new interactive loading screen games. The hidden object game consists of screens from all EP’s and SP’s, and players will need to find objects based on the “clues” at the bottom of the screen. These interactive loading screens will appear when loading a game via the main menu, and are completely optional.
For every object you find, the game will give you Lifetime Happiness Points. Once in game, these points will be distributed evenly among all members of your active household. To turn off this option, visit the menu > general settings > un-tick “Enable Interactive Loading Screens”.
New Objects & CAST Patterns
When visiting BuydeBug mode, there are some new items available: Futuristic Gravestones, Futuristic Mailbox, and CAST Patterns.
