The Sims 4: New Update + Patch Notes! (June 16th, 2016)



The Sims Team has released a brand new Update for The Sims 4, addressing some of the bugs in the game.

To download the latest version of The Sims 4, simply open your Origin program and if the game doesn’t update automatically, right click on The Sims 4 and select ”Update”.

In case you have Mods or Custom Content, the game will automatically disable them for you after first launching The Sims 4 after the update. To re-enable all your Mods and Custom Content, select the Settings option in the Menu and select Settings. Under the”Other” section you’ll find the ”Enable Custom Content and Mods” option. Check it and restart your game in order for it to take effect!

Patch Notes

Update: 06/16/2016 – PC Version / Mac Version

Howdy Simmers,

Today we have a quick, targeted update to correct a few pernicious issues reported by the community.  Thank you to everyone in the community who contributed to getting these sorted out.


  • We fixed an issue that could cause the game to crash for some folks at startup or soon thereafter.
  • The game should no longer generate multiple Tragic Clowns.  We have enough.

Dine Out

  • Going to a restaurant together should no longer spontaneously create new familial relations.  Love at first sight may be a real phenomenon, but marriage at first meal just sounds like a bad reality TV show.

Remember: These repairs were made possible by the reports of players like you!  If you haven’t checked out Answers HQ or The Sims Bugs & Issuesforum, you’ll find a great community of players-helping-players and experts like SimGuruNick and SimGuruArvin collecting information.
