Attach Table to Chair

Previously, you were only able to attach a Chair to the Table. Now you can move the Table and attach it to the Chair as well! The Update also added a new light-green interface when a Table is selected – highlighting all the content that’s attached to the Table.

New Food Thumbnails

Food Thumbnails have been improved and now show food in better light! These thumbnails will appear whenever you select the ”Cook” interaction, or when you have food stored in your inventory.

  • You can also resize photos you have taken with the camera, and the retail tab interface has changed too!

  • There’s also new black swatches for most of the modern windows, doors and arches. Sadly they didn’t include it for the small rectangular and the three pane windows.

  • They also changed the presentation of the panel where you can get info about your sim (traits, etc.) : the age is shown differently and you can’t find out how much days left until they age up anymore

  • I wish that we could choise the colirs that we want on things instead of only cooseing the colors that they have picked. Can’t be very creative and different with their colors. I want to make things my own style not their style. Just my opinion.

  • they also changed something about the Lady Sims for the enlargement in the breasts. You can only have them a certain size and they only stop to a medium size
