The Sims 4: New Game Patch (December 14th, 2023)

- Advertisement -

One week after the release of The Sims 4 For Rent, EA/Maxis sent out a patch to fix a few bugs from the expansion pack.

If you have auto 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 the game in your library.


To ensure your game is up to date, check the game version found in Documents > EA > The Sims 4 > GameVersion.txt. Your game should now read: PC: 1.103.315.1020 / Mac: 1.103.315.1220. Console: 1.85.

Hey fam,

Fancy the Festivities and Fare thee Well

Bug Fixes

For Rent

  • Mellowing out Build Mode: Drawing, deleting, and auto-filling wallpaper in Residential Rentals will stop causing Build Mode slowdown.
  • Mellowing out Evil Landlords:Taka Soi premade lot rents won’t get into the Billions and force you to stay. Let’s keep it civil. Any incorrect price UI in existing saves should quickly update to normal by the next bills cycle.
  • Mellowing out water usage: Sims will no longer obsessively excessively autonomously shower when hygiene is not low. Like, you’re clean already, Sim. Stop.
  • FreeRealEstate On cheat will now turn on again: Cheaters can happily mellow out once more.
