The Sims 4 News: Get Green with The Sims 4 PlantSim Challenge!




Today's update* brings a new seasonal challenge; PlantSims are now sprouting in The Sims™4


Starting right now and running until May 4th at 10am PST, PlantSims are out wandering in the world, ready and waiting to meet your Sim. Play your cards right and you'll be able to convince them to hand over one of their Magic Beans. Depending on the PlantSims' mood at the time, you can gain one of six different colored beans, matching the PlantSims' mood. 




Your Sim can call up Jasmine and receive a stump to place the beans in. With a little water, this will grow in to a tree which has a portal, taking your Sim to uncover new seeds, rare items, and even a 

Forbidden Fruit! Should your Sim choose to try eating it, they'll turn in to a green and leafy PlantSim for five Sim days. While in PlantSim form, your sims will not only take on a new look, but become more skilled at gardening and have slightly different needs as well. Don't worry, if you're enjoying the PlantSim life you'll be able to keep the tree after the challenge ends, and continue transforming in to a PlantSim!


Excited to try it out? Head on over to social media and tell us all about your adventures with the new PlantSims! You can find us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The Sims 4: New Update! (13/04/2017)



Update: 04/13/2017 – PC Version 1.29.69.1020 / Mac Version 1.29.39.1220

Hey PlantSimmers!

Are you feeling green? Ready to let the sun invigorate you? Do you see magic beans in your sleep? Is Jack your favorite name? Ivy? Or Audrey… too?
Or maybe, you just have your own seed to bear… fruit to pluck… rings to count… er… plant related story to tell. Well, now you can, because the PlantSim Challenge has sprouted!
  • Look, plant + sprout is a required pun, I really didn’t have a choice in the matter.
So, How do you get started?

Head on in to the game, and give Jasmine a call. She’ll tell you all about the challenge, and give you your very own Magic PlantSim Stump!
  • Yes, a stump.
    • Yes, the bottom part of a tree after it’s been cut down… typically dead.
      • Yes, it’s not very eco-friendly.
        • But, it’s Magic!
          • Yes, a magic stump…
To continue… the Magic PlantSim Stump will hold the Magic Beans, that you get from talking with the PlantSims that wander around during the day. There will be 6 beans to collect (Uncomfortable, Playful, Confident, Angry, Sad, and Flirty), and will require that you get a PlantSim into the corresponding emotion to acquire.
Once placed into the stump, give it a little water, and watch the…
  • Magic? You’re going to say magic aren’t you?
    • No. … I was going to say… the tree grow. Yep.
      • Tree? Uh huh…
        • Yea, the… Mystical Magic Bean Portal Tree.
          • Riiight
Once the Mystical Magic Bean Portal Tree appears…
  • What about the Mystical Arcane Unknowable Magic Bean Portal Tree?
… *sigh* it will open up a portal…
  • A magic portal?
… a portal will open once a day, where you can send your Sim, and find the Forbidden Fruit.
  • It is magically delicious fruit?
Ok, fine! Eat the fruit, you’re a PlantSim for five days! You no longer have to worry about bladder, but you need sunlight and water to survive, and you get a bonus to your gardening.
  • Woah, woah… woah. Only five days?
Eat another fruit. Let’s just get to the issues…
General Issues
  • Sims aged up from toddler to adult, will now have an appropriately sounding voice.
    • Toddler.
      • I used to write the word ‘toddler’ and this giant censor would appear out of nowhere. Still getting used to it… toddler?
        • Toddler, toddler, toddler, toddler.
          • Plum yea!
            • Just checking if the censor is still there.
  • We fixed an issue that could occur when re-loading a lot, that would prevent exterior puddles from disappearing. Exterior water puddles will once again disappear over time.
    • Being that the source of most exterior Sim puddles is from…
      • Speaking of which… do you change the clothes of your Sim after a bladder fail? Or do you just let them shake it off?
Outdoor Retreat
  • We addressed a clipping issue that occurs with yfBottom_GP01ShortBucklet when paired with certain shirts.
    • Is clipping an inside baseball term?
      • Is inside baseball an inside baseball term?
Vampires
  • Vampires will no longer attempt to break into community lots, thus preventing you from leaving… the community lot, going home, visiting a friend, returning to take care of your kids, starting your work day, gym-hopping, taking that camping trip, meeting your date for dinner…
    • Well, essentially travel… you can’t travel.
      • Now you can… visit your friends, or go h… er travel.
  • We also addressed an issue that could lock you out of your own home upon returning to your lot, if it has a vampire skulking about.
    • And yes, skulk is the proper term to use when an individual is hanging out on your home lot hoping to take a bite from your neck.
      • If they were seeking a little TLC, the proper term would be Creep.
      • If they sought to break into a maximum security prison where a world leader had mistakenly taken refuge, the proper term would be Snake.
May your PlantSims flourish,
-SimGuruGnome

Happy 17 Anniversary The Sims!


The Sims seri pertama dirilis tepat hari ini di tahun 2000. Tapi tahukah kalian tentang fakta-fakta unik The Sims?
  • The Sims pertama diciptakan sebagai spinoff (proyek tambahan yang lebih terfokus ke Sim-nya) dari SimCity. Dan awalnya ditolak oleh MAXIS. Mereka berpikir The Sims akan sangat membosankan.
  • The Sims awalnya bernama "Doll House".
  • Pemikiran dan tindakan Sims dibuat setelah mengevaluasi orang-orang di dunia nyata.
  • Bahasa yang Sims gunakan dinamakan Simlish.
  • Objek yang pertama diciptakan di permainan ini adalah toilet.
  • The Sims merupakan permainan terlaris selama 3 tahun berturut-turut setelah dirilis. Dan penjualan The Sims 2 di tahun 2004 mengalahkan The Sims.

Selamat ulang tahun yang ke-17 The Sims! 🎉🎊

Review Toddler Update The Sims 4 (Bahasa Indonesia)


Pada tanggal 12 Januari (waktu PST), The Sims membawakan kabar mengejutkan untuk para Simmers di seluruh dunia. Mereka merilis update yang menurut kami merupakan update TERBAIK dari update-update sebelumnya. Bahwa mereka membawa toddler atau Sim balita ke dalam The Sims 4.
Sebelum kita review ke toddler, yuk kita tengok selain ada toddler di patch ini ada apa saja sih?

GAYA BERJALAN BARU

Ada satu gaya berjalan ditambakan. Tentu ini buat nanti game pack Vampires.

TEETH

Di patch ini ada tambahan di CAS (Create a Sim) yaitu teeth. Sepetinya ini juga fitur tambahan untuk game pack Vampires. Karena nanti di game pack tersebut kita bisa memilih taring untuk vampires. Nah, di patch ini sudah tersedia beberapa pilihan gigi untuk Sim regular, termasuk gigi dengan behel.

SKIN TONE BARU

Dilihat dari penampilannya yang pucat pasi seperti itu, nampaknya ini juga persiapan untuk game pack Vampires. Nanti vampire bisa pakai skin tone pucat ini.

BAGIAN CREATE A SIM

Nah sekarang kita ke toddlernya yuk. Kita lihat di CAS (create a sim) ada apa saaja yang baru.
  • Tambahan 5 gaya rambut untuk balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 6 gaya rambut untuk balita perempuan (1 faminim, 5 unisex).
  • Tambahan 6 baju atasan untuk balita balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 4 outfits untuk balita balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 5 celana untuk balita balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 2 sepatu untuk balita balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 1 aksesoris untuk balita balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 3 kaca mata untuk balita laki-laki.
  • Tambahan 8 pakaian atas untuk balita perempuan (2 feminim, 6 unisex).
  • Tambahan 5 outfits balita untuk perempuan (2 feminim, 3 unisex).
  • Tambahan 7 pakaian bawah untuk balita perempuan (3 feminim, 4 unisex).
  • Tambahan 3 aksesoris untuk balita perempuan.
  • Tanbahan 3 sepatu balita perempuan (2 feminim, 1 unisex).

Masih di CAS. Tapi kami akan bahas mengenai traits. Traits adalah seperti sifat yang mennetukan bagaimana Sim bertindak. Dan di patch ini sudah disediakan 8 traits tambahan khusus untuk balita dan satu jenis suara unisex yang tentu kita bisa atur pitch-nya.
  • Angelic : Balita dengan trait ini akan mudah bergaul dengan Sim lain, bahkan orang asing.
  • Charmer : Balita dengan trait ini sangat suka bersosialisasi. Keuntungan dari trait ini, mereka bisa mendapatkan skill communication lebih cepat.
  • Clingy : Balita dengan trait ini tidak mau jauh dari keluarga. Jika balita ini ditinggalkan, mereka akan sedih. Keuntungan dari trait ini adalah balita dapat memperbaiki bad mood dengan cepat jika mereka merasa nyaman.
  • Fussy : Mereka akan rewel jika menggunakan trait ini. Mereka akan lebih sering menangis dan butuh perhatian lebih. Keuntungan dari trait ini, jika mereka merasa diperhatikan akan membantunya menghilangkan moodlet buruk lebih cepat.
  • Independent : Balita dengan trait ini sangat menyukai kebebasan. Mereka kerap tidak menuruti perintah pengasuhnya. Keuntungan balita dengan trait ini, mereka tidak perlu diperhatikan secara terus menerus dan akan mendapatkan skill ekstra jika mereka ditinggalkan.
  • Inquisitive : Balita yang penuh dengan rasa penasaran. Mereka selalu ingin tahu sekitarnya. Keuntungan dari trait ini, mereka akan mendapatkan skill thinking lebih cepat.
  • Silly : Balita dengan trait ini sangat suka bermain-main.
  • Wild : Jika di dunia nyata, balita dengan trait ini akan hyper active. Keuntungan dari trait ini, mereka akan mendapatkan skill movement lebih cepat.

Nah, jika Sim kalian sudah punya balita, mau dikasih trait apa? Dan kenapa? Tinggalkan komentar ya 😊

LIVE MODE & GAME PLAY

Nah ini dia yang ditunggu-tunggu. Sekarang kita bahas live mode-nya yuk.
Ada beberapa interaksi yang sebelumnya belum pernah ada di The Sims sebelumnya seperti "Babble", "Hug", "Go Away", dll. Sekarang balita bisa berinteraksi dengan balita lainnya. Dan interaksi "Read to sleep" sudah tersedia di base game, mengingat di The Sims 3 kita butuh Expansion Pack Generation untuk mendapatkan interaksi tersebut. Selebihnya, silahkan tonton video di bawah. Kesimpulan: Dengan rilisnya update ini, tentu merupakan kebahagian untuk semua Simmers di seluruh dunia. Kita tahu, kita sudah menantikan ini lebih dari dua tahun. Tetapi dengan fitur-fitur yang mereka sajikan, penantian kita selama lebih dari dua tahun tidaklah sia-sia. Dari awal kami memainkannya, sampai seharian penuh, kami tidak merasa kecewa dengan update ini. Kami rasa toddler di The Sims 4 adalah yang terbaik dari toddler di The Sims sebelumnya. Bagaimana pendapat kalian? Tinggalkan komentar ya 😊

The Sims 4 New Update! (12/01/2017) - TODDLERS ARE FINALLY HERE!

What’s New?
  • Toddlers.
Wait you skipped right to the what’s ne… what the whaaat?! Toddlers? Toddler toddlers… toddlers? Um, did you just say toddlers?

Perhaps. But the long standing ‘no talk’ of toddlers talk may be toddler blocking me. And, as such I can neither confirm nor deny their tiny toddler toddling presence in this release. I can however, say that any resemblance to a toddler in this toddler release is purely todd-idental… ler.

I am also required by the Toddler Coalition for the Betterment and Care of Toddlerhood to provide a few disclaimers:
  • For you and your toddler’s safety, please keep all toddlers at least 5 feet from all toddler messaging about toddlers.
  • In case of fire do not break glass, but grab the nearest toddler and exit the building in an orderly fashion.
    • Once safe, please take a moment to find the toddlers parents if the toddler was not yours.
  • Also, for a toddler lasting more than 9 days, turn aging on.
  • Batteries not included, so feed your toddler.
  • For identification purposes, this is a toddler:  o>-<
    • Not actual size
Well whew! We’ve just had 24 toddlers already born in these release notes (make that 25). I feel there may be more toddlers on the way… so Woohoo*!

*Woohoo will not directly produce a toddler, but provide for the groundwork for a future toddler.

Argh! So… TELL ME ABOUT TODDLERS already!!!
Ok, ok alright. All things Toddlers…
Let’s start with “How do you get a Toddler”?
Add your toddler in Create a Sim!
  • You can add them to a new or existing household through Create a Sim. And customize them as you would any other Sim:
    • Select their voice, gender, and ASSIGN A RELATIONSHIP
      • Sorry for the caps, but this is kind of important. Toddlers have a special relationship with caregivers.
      • Mothers, brothers, fathers, sisters, or anyone you choose via the in game interaction Adopt as Caregiver (found under the toddlers Help… interaction menu) are caregivers.
      • Being a Caregiver will ensure that the caregiver Sim cares for the toddler, while other Sims may be less inclined to answer the crying calls of your average toddler.
  • Ok, now that the Caregiver bit is over with… let’s get into the other customization options.
    • 8 new traits to pick from!
      • Angelic, Fussy, Silly, Charmer, Independent, Wild, Clingy, and Inquisitive
    • Presets for the various toddler body and head parts to assist in your customization, as well as the same ability to modify the body and face parts that other Sims have.
    • All the same skin tones as adults (yes, Aliens too!)
      • Does it make sense that that toddler wears an alien sized diaper?
      • No, no it doesn’t. But, it’s really cute!
    • Plenty of Styled Looks to choose from.
    • And of course all the usual stuff…
      • Full body outfits, tops, bottoms, socks, leggings, and shoes.
      • Glasses, hats, hairs (and hair colors), freckles, and teeth.
        • Did we talk about the new teeth yet?
        • Yes, teeth for all ages! Head in to Create a Sim, click on your Sims head, click the Face category, and then Teeth to customize your Sims smile.
          • I like the braces.
Adopt your toddler!
  • Choose the Household… Adopt option on the computer, to adopt your very own toddler!
    • They come fully toddler-ized, ready for your snuggles.
Or, if you want to do things the old fashioned way, age up your baby!
  • It starts with… look it’s a birds and bees thing. There’s a flower, some pollen, and the bee… um, go ask your mom.
So, now you have a toddler…
How do you care for them?
  • Bathe, and Bubble Bathe them. Be aware of the possible splash back.
  • With a Potty Chair they can Go Potty, and Ask for Potty Help… or just use their diaper.
    • And of course, non-toddlers will have to Clean the Potty, and Change the Diaper.
  • Sleep, Nap, Ask to be Read to Sleep or Tucked in, Sit and Chat all on a Toddler Bed.
  • Toddlers prefer the high chair where they can Ask for Food or Drink, and of course Eat.
    • But they may find their food more fun than edible.
  • Be hugged, snuggled, talked or played with, or listened to.
And as they do ‘things’ they learn skills like communication, movement, thinking, imagination, and potty.
  • And their caregivers can be available to mentor and help them along.
But they want to have fun to, right?
Of course, and there are many ways for toddlers to have fun, or… not.
  • They can cry, laugh, yell, and throw a tantrum. Or babble in the mirror, tell stories, talk about dinosaurs, princesses, superheroes, parties, art, the day, their favorite animals, or just Ask Why… over and over and over.
  • Or play in things, find out what that is, splash in the toilet (hopefully you are a neat Sim), ask to be picked up, or talk to strangers (stranger danger).
  • Maybe they want to watch toddler videos, play Simshape or Blicblock Baby, draw with llama on the Wabbit Tablet. Or build a tower, study shapes, or ask others to help them build and study with the Nesting Blocks.
  • They can hit, hug, or talk to their giant stuffed animals.
  • Read or ask to be read a toddler book.
  • Look at flash cards, and learn animals, basic needs, letters, or objects.
  • Play with the toybox toys, and the dollhouse. Dance and listen to music (including the new Lullaby and Kids radio station).
  • Just to name a few…
Woah, ok… um, I hate to ask but can toddlers…
  • No, toddlers do not die. They are fireproof.
No, no... NO! I wasn’t… look, I just wanted to know can toddlers…
  • Yes, they can climb stairs, run and walk – but you’ll have to improve their movement skill.
Stop that, I just wanted to know can toddlers do anything else?
Yes, toddlers can…
…be your little sister or brother, son or daughter. Try your patience. Be loving but a handful. They can take all your time, or be ignored. They can travel with you, or go to daycare. Or you can stay at home, and hire a nanny. They can provide special moments for you and your Sims. And they can grow and learn, as they age up into children, teens, young adults, adults, and eventually elders. They can’t die, but they can be taken away. And ultimately, they can be part of your Sims family, and your stories.
Anything else?
Yes, in addition to toddlers, and I strongly suggest you pick up a couple of these if you intend to have a toddler, you can find the following items in Build Mode under the Kids Room sort (just click on the 3 blocks in the image):
  • 2 Toddler Beds
  • 3 High Chairs
  • Wabbit Tablet
  • Nesting Blocks
  • Chomper the Devourer toy box
  • A toddler sized Dollhouse
  • A Bookshelf and 12 toddler books
  • 2 Potty Chairs
  • 6 new toy box toys (bus, kitty, bear, ducky, butterfly, and Tentacle Tom)
And…
  • 2 Curtains, 5 wall decals, a light for floors and a light for ceilings, a dresser, a rug, a wall shelf, an end table, a wall sculpture, a living chair, 4 decorated toddler doors, AND 7 walls and 2 floors.
That sure is a lot. Did you address any issues?
Just a couple, er some, er what is five in the verbal shorthand? And is couple really short for two? It has three extra letters. I’m so confused…
  • You can now use the Design Tool on a bassinet containing a baby, because sometimes your baby just doesn’t match your room.
    • And you can’t change the baby. Put down the baby safe paint and brush, and just back away.
  • Walls can now be built along all four edges of penthouse lots, rather than just three.
  • We addressed an issue that could cause the game to freeze while playing the Doctor Career or when hiring a Nanny in some languages.
    • *childish moment* Playing doctor, hehe.
  • Confident children will no longer get a whim to practice pick-up lines.
  • We addressed an issue that could cause doors to be stuck ajar.
    • Your door is ajar.
    • No, it’s a door.
And on that toddler’ish joke, that’s the update folks. In the time it took you to read these release notes, the following toddlers came to be in the Sims…
Abigail a toddler, Aidan a toddler, Alex a toddler, Alexander a toddler, Allison a toddler, Alyssa a toddler, Andrew a toddler, Anna a toddler, Anthony a toddler, Archer a hog of war, Ariana a venti-toddler, Ashley a toddler, Austin a toddler, Ava a toddler, Avery a toddler, Benjamin a toddler button, Brandon a toddler, Brayden a toddler, Brianna a toddler, Brian not a toddler because he turned aging off and stayed a baby, Caden a toddler, Caleb a toddler, Cameron a toddler, Chloe a toddler danced the tables, Christian a toddler, Christopher a toddler, Connor a toddler, Cruz a toddler, Daniel a toddler, David vs toddler-iath, Dylan a toddler, Elijah would a toddler?, Elizabeth a toddler, Ella a toddler, Emily a toddler, Emma a toddler, Ethan a toddler, Etta at last a toddler, Evan a toddler, Gabriel a toddler, Gavin a toddler, Grace a toddler, Hailey a toddler, Hannah a toddler and her sisters, Hunter a toddler, India a toddler, Isabella-watcha-doin-toddler, Isabelle a toddler, Jack o’toddler, Jackson a toddler, Jacob a climber, James a toddler, Jasmine a toddler, Jayden a toddler, John a toddler, Jonathan a toddler, Jordan a toddler, Joseph a toddler, Joshua a toddler, Julia a toddler, Kaitlyn a toddler, Katherine a toddler, Kayla a toddler, Kaylee a toddler, Kylie a toddler, Kyra a toddler, Lauren a toddler, Lily a toddler, Logan a toddler also known as James, Lucas a toddler, Luke – use the toddler, Mackenzie a toddler, Madeline a toddler made with flour, eggs, lemon, sugar, and vanilla, Madison a toddler and an avenue in a popular board game, Makayla a toddler, Mason a free-toddler, Matthew a toddler, Maya a toddler, Megan a toddler, Mia a toddler, Michael a toddler, Morgan a toddler, Natalie a toddler, Nathan an uncharted toddler, Nicolas a toddler, Noah a toddler on an ark, Olivia a toddler-newton-john, Owen a toddler, Plum a toddler, Rachel we miss you a toddler, Riley a toddler, Rosemary’s toddler, Ryan a toddler, Samantha b toddler, Samuel a toddler on snakes, Sarah a toddler, Savanna a plain toddler, Sean a toddler, Sophia a toddler, Sydney a toddler-mate, Taylor a toddler, Thomas a toddler, TK-421 a trooper, Toddler a toddler, Tyler a toddler, William a tell-toddler, Zachary a toddler, and Zoe a toddler.
