There’s a new Sims 4 update available in Origin. If you have automatic updates enabled in the “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 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: PC Version 22.214.171.1240 / Mac Version 126.96.36.1990. If you’ve updated but it’s not showing the correct version, delete the GameVersion.txt file, restart, and all will be corrected.
❗ Remove all MODS and Custom Content before updating your game ❗
Update: 06/16/2016 – PC Version 188.8.131.520 / Mac Version 184.108.40.2060
Today we have a quick, targeted update to correct a few pernicious issues reported by the community. Thank you to everyone in the community who contributed to getting these sorted out.
- We fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash for some folks at startup or soon thereafter.
- The game should no longer generate multiple Tragic Clowns. We have enough.
- Going to a restaurant together should no longer spontaneously create new familial relations. Love at first sight may be a real phenomenon, but marriage at first meal just sounds like a bad reality TV show.
Remember: These repairs were made possible by the reports of players like you! If you haven’t checked out Answers HQ or The Sims Bugs & Issues forum, you’ll find a great community of players-helping-players and experts like @SimGuruNick and @SimGuruArvin collecting information.
