The Sims 4 New Update v1.18.64.1020 (PC) / v1.18.64.1220 (Mac) (05/17/2016)




Update: 05/17/2016 – PC Version 1.18.64.1020 / Mac Version 1.18.64.1220

Keeping this update short and neat. Just letting a couple hairs hang out on this one, not an “Einstein head buried in a complicated encryption issue, hands in the hair, letting the strands fall where they may” kind of release, but a we had a bunch of backend issues to address (not called out here, because ‘brain hurts’), and a few bits of this and that. So, with that in mind…
  • We addressed an issue where the Tragic Clown hair was randomly appearing on townies who were not the Tragic Clown. As much as we love this hair, it is a bit of an oddity to see haphazardly on Bob or Jane the neighbor as they jog on by.
    • The Tragic Clown hair will no longer randomly appear on your friends and neighbors… unless you want it to.

  • Several interactions on the computer for children now properly display a skill icon to communicate why the interaction is present (unlocked because of a skill), or what the interaction will benefit for your child (raise a skill when performed).

  • Children will now gain social motive when an adult reads to them.
    • Adults may gain frustration as their child asks for “Just one more.”
    • “Just one more” interaction is only present in the IRL version.

  • Chatting with Sims on the Slablet will now build relationship with that Sim.
    • …because all Sims are Sims. As the song says “Sims are Sims so why should it be, that those Sims should have gotten along so awfully…” on the Slablet.
      • Ok, so maybe that wasn’t exactly the song’s lyrics, BUT if the writer had known about the Slablet, I’m sure it would have changed everything… a whole new mode.

  • Masterbedroom will no longer be blocked by the profanity filter when sharing to the Gallery.
    • Masterbathroom you’re next.

  • Addressed an issue that could cause a Sims shadow to flicker when in a low light room.

  • Added a blank line between each release note, in order to elongate the visual impact of the release notes.

  • Napping in a hot tub will now properly trigger Ultra Speed.
    • Napping in a hot tub is not recommended because you know… water.

  • We addressed an issue preventing the completion of the Be Parent to a Child with 3 Friends aspiration goal.

  • Edge scrolling now functions in windowed full screen mode.
    • You can find the option to turn on or off Edge Scrolling in the Options Menu (ESC) under the Game Options / Game Camera tab.

  • We fixed an issue where photographs placed on a lot could incorrectly flag the lot as having CC when shared to the Gallery.
    • This will correct the issue for creations going forward.

  • Ending a sentence with a preposition is bad, according to my 4th grade teacher, about from except with upon toward among.
