The Sims 4: New Update! (June 1st, 2017)


The Sims Team has released a brand new Update for The Sims 4!

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: 06/01/2017 – PC Version / Mac Version

Hello Simmers.  Just a little tidying up today.

  • If you see some blurry thumbnails in the new Load / Save menu, it’s not you. It’s us.  Rest assured that save slots created after this little tidying episode will no longer have the issue.  To clear up blurriness for existing saves, you’ll need to do a little magic to bring it back into focus:
    1. rub your eyes twice,
    2. wiggle your nose,
    3. resave your save game, then
    4. viola, all crisp and clear again!
  • Despite not having the new pack, your stereo will no longer look like it’s playing loud music – even when it’s off.
  • You can now alter alien disguises again with merry abandon.
  • Really, you didn’t want the entire, long, sordid, intricate history of each of your relationships displayed? Ok. Ok. It’s back to how it was before….

Thanks everyone!  Enjoy and be good to each other!

  • Could we make a key shortcut to save the game? Sometimes my mouse gets froze midgame and I’m not able to press save when I press the esc key. This would be a wonderful add on! Thanks for all you guys do!

  • I really liked the detailed relationship status… they were formatted in a very organized way… I was really excited to have that feature … now it’s gone. I have played sims since Sims 2 came out and I feel like this was one of the best things in Sims 4, I’m very disappointed with this new update … why couldn’t you all just put in an option under the Sims 4 option menu? And then “we” the simmers could choose if we want it off or on.. to me with it on, makes the game and our sims relationships more realistic.. I’m very disappointed with the choice you all decide to make.

  • In the next update please sort out why my sims can’t propose or get married anymore. I can create sims and set them as married, but some of my sims just won’t propose to each other even when their social and love interaction is maxed out. I’m working on genealogy currently so doesn’t affect that thankfully, but the babies are all being born out of wedlock! Please look into it, thank you.

  • I was hoping this update would fix an issue I’ve been having since the update on May 25th, but it didn’t. Anyone else having an issue where lots aren’t saving to their library when it says they’re saved?

    • please excuse the complete randomness of this comment but i am neither interested in girls or dating so i have rejected your “follow” notification here on disqus.

      if that wasn’t your doing then you may want to see tech support about someone using your account like some stupid dating site spammer.

      why i keep getting spam follow notifications like that is beyond me. >.> it’s like getting that kind of trash in my email and i nuke those when i see them too.
