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 22.214.171.1240 (PC) / 126.96.36.1990 (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: 07/28/2015 – PC Version 188.8.131.520 / Mac Version 184.108.40.2060
Today we are releasing a small, but focused update to address two specific issues that have been affecting some folks. This update would not have been possible without your help and support. To everyone who contributed save files and participated in bug threads on the forums and Answers HQ, you have our sincere thanks!
“Can’t Make Friends” a.k.a. “Relationship Stuck At Impartial”
- Sims should now be able to change their relationship status normally with all other Sims.
“Map Reload Issue” a.k.a. “Loading a lot kicks me back to the map”
- This should be fixed for most players, and you should now be able to visit problem lots once again. This actually turned out to be a few different issues that all had the same result. In each case some sequence of events would put a lot into a ‘bad’ state, and the game would essentially run back to the safety of the map screen. We believe we’ve fixed the most common causes of this effect, but there may be other methods that might scare the game away. If you encounter a new one, please share!
Thank you again for your continued support and participation!
