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

Happy 18th Anniversary Simmers!

18 years? We’re all adulty and mature now. Wonder if our grey is showing yet? If it is, I’m going back in to Create-a-Sim for some edits.

In the meantime, however, let’s raise our juice in a toast to you, the fans! Thank you for being here with us for these 18 years… and if you were here from the start, I’m sorry for the mass amount of death by kitchen fire! But hopefully you’ve learned it’s better to make garden salads for a couple hours before trying to make mac n’ cheese (shakes fist at that demon-firestarter mac n’ cheese).

With that, we have just a few new things for you to enjoy in your game…

What’s New?
A new female hair (yes, your males can wear the hair too). The Create-a-Sim artists went all out on this one, I’m loving it! (for specifics, the asset name is yf and ymHair_EF10MedCurl).

A new Anniversary T-shirt for men and women! You can find it in Create-a-Sim under… T-shirts.

And 10 new skin tones along the cool and warm undertones to broaden the range of Sim possibilities.

…and we’ve fixed a handful of issues.

General Issues

  • Night club text invites will now only occur between 8pm and 12am (Midnight).
  • Pregnant Sims are no longer allowed to age up.
    • Fountain of youth discovered!
      • You don’t have kids, do you?
    • Fountain of youth is a hoax!
  • Deceased Sims that have been released to the netherworld will no longer appear alive in the family tree.

Vampires Issue

  • Sims will no longer perform a dance routine before a vampire attempts to drink from them.
    • Actual issue. Yep.

City Living Issue

  • Vegetarians can now safely eat a serving of Eggs and Toast without receiving negative buffs for doing so.
    • Vegans are appalled at the prospect.

Once again, Happy Anniversary, and thank you your continued support!
