The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff: First Look at the Original Jungle Gym/Ball Pit

When The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff was released last year, one of the biggest issues for many players was the visual appearance of the functional Ball Pit. Just a few weeks after, Maxis released a game patch to address the flat texture and improve the appearance.

During the Get Famous Sims Camp event in London 10 days ago, popular Sims YouTuber The Sims Supply joined SimGuruGraham in a real life ball pit to discuss the “real story” behind The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Ball Pit “scandal”.



During the interview in the video above, SimGuruGraham states that the original plan for the “Jungle Gym” item in Toddler Stuff, was for it to be a fully modular jungle gym. This created an issue down the road where the entire model needed to be reconstructed to be released. In the end, the texture of the ball pit suffered, but was eventually fixed.

As you can see, this issue caused the item to be reconstructed in order to ship without causing issues for players. We never did get the original plan for the jungle gym, but at least Graham took the time to share some background on what happen with the Ball Pit.
