The Sims 4: New Update Overview (September 12th, 2017)

Today’s new The Sims 4 Update brought new Create A Sim items, Build Mode items and some small changes in the user interface. There are so many objects that you can count today’s update as a “Free Pack” update, but instead it’s just integrated into the base game.

Let’s take a look at what’s new!

New Create A Sim Items

There are 9 new clothing items in Create A Sim! 4 items are new for the adult feminine choice, 2 for adult masculine fashion choice and 1 unisex! There’s also a new top and bottom for children (both are unisex).











New Build Items

12 new objects for you to place in build mode, including a new bed, new sofa, new chair, new living chair, plant, wooden duck, mirror, 2 new windows, a chimney, awning and a fence.

Toddler Ball Pit Visual Fix

The Toddler Ball Pit from The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack is no longer flat anymore!

The Gallery Creation Preview

Packs used for a certain build will now order properly by the time of their release and their value (EPs / GPs / SPs).

  • Lol, now we know, next time they put something ridiculous in the game, all we have to do is make a meme out of it and they’ll fix it (even though it should never have been as crappy as the ball pit in the first place)

  • The bed……. Only Energy : 1 ?!? Such a disappointment. When are they gonna realize the energy level should depend on mattress quality (something players can pick) and not the bed frame… So many cool beds I never use because they suck (and/or are uncomfortable).

    Other than that, cool new content ! The haircut looks cute.

    • ha I use only 1 bed from cc cuz it looks simple, match everytime to house I make and gives max energy a pity so many beds not used by anyone

  • Is it just me or can the duck and the new flowers not be placed on any tables? They’re not that big of items or anything so I don’t get why they shouldn’t.
