Patch Notes

Update: 09/27/2016 – PC Version 1.23.24.1010 / Mac Version 1.23.24.1210

Afternoon, Morning, and Evening Simmers!
…in that exact order (but only if you are traveling West)

We have just a quick content add for you, so without ado of a furthering type…

…the New Stuff

Some new stuff for your Sims to celebrate the Day of the Dead!

  • …which technically isn’t until the end of October.
    • … but they’re Sims. So, technically any day can be the end of October.
      • I’m reminded of the famous quote, “Today will not be known as Taco Tuesday. It will be known as Freedom Friday, but still on a Tuesday!”

So you were saying, what’s new?

  • A new recipe for Pan de Muerto is available under the Cook… interaction.
  • Several new objects are available for your Sims to decorate their homes. Search for the term “Day of the Dead” in Buy Mode to find…
    • Two new wall hangings, a table, some candles, and a sculpture.
  • There are also several new outfits for your Sims in Create a Sim!
    • Male and Female Sims have a new full body outfit, plus face makeup.
    • Female Sims have a new hair, and Male Sims have a new hat.
    • Children also have a new full body outfit and face makeup.

And since we are on the subject of October… turns out Oct 1st marks the end of a quarter… so, that’s a thing.

Also, the end of a quarter has ridges.

Did you know that if you are only looking at one side of a ridge, you can’t see the other side? But if you wait, and let yourself move forward… just a short bit, you might find yourself on the other side of the ridge, able to see more.

Is it better on the other side? It might be, but I suppose in the end it all depends on the perception of which side of the quarter you are looking from, and prefer.

And with that little bit of wisdom, I wish you a happy Release Tuesday!
