The Sims 4 Base Game is getting 350 New Swatches for Items!

A few days ago SimGuruLyndsay posted a cryptic tweet with numbers. The numbers she posted were 2, 18 and 350.

Although she has already revealed that 18 was a countdown to EA Play and 2 was the number of special presentations she was working on, it still remained a mystery what the number 350 was all about.

Well, just now she has revealed the true meaning behind the number 350. The Sims 4 will soon be getting a new update that includes 350 new swatches for items in the game!

SimGuruFrost has also shared the excitement over on Twitter:

It’s also been confirmed that the upcoming Swatch Update for The Sims 4 will be only for the Base Game items!

Just a few weeks ago it was confirmed that we’ll be getting an all-black door for one of the base game doors we currently have in the game. However, it was not known until now that there will be at least 349 other new color swatches for other items in the game!

  1. I wished they’d add a black swatch to the hairs. I’m not a fan of the blue “highlights” most of the black colored hair styles have.

    • It’s a lot cheaper to this than create a style especially at this point in the game. It’s doubtful that EA (as many of us have been royally screwed over by EA’s decisions at one point or other with the sims or another game under them) would give them the resources needed to make it worthwhile and not cause issues with CAS. If they did a very limited create a style we should all know by now that will start a lot of drama and complaining because it wouldn’t be as detailed. They did mention this when Cats and Dogs released.

  2. I really wish they would concentrate on console first before doing other things. Make console worth our while first please. PC game is already epic with the ability to cc and mods. Console has none of that so give console better stuff first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    • Don’t count on it. The PC version is obviously their priority but the good thing is you console players will still get the same features eventually.

    • @Chelsey walker, while I understand your need for more content (I have a cousin who plays on console) Maxi is right in that you will get these updates eventually. 🙂 I hope you don’t *really* mean to say that since consoles are a late arrival that they should take precedence over PCs! If they don’t continue to work on PC stuff, then console players wont get new stuff either, once you get the few updates and packs that you are missing! That would mean a long gap without *any* content for a while for both types of players! 🙁 Besides, they probably have totally different teams working on PC stuff than those who are working on adapting the PC items to console.

      Besides, not every PC player uses CC and mods! I don’t anymore! It can be difficult to manage all your CC and mods especially if you have a lot of it. Every time the game gets updated, there is the possibility that mods will become outdated, which means that mod makers have to fix their mods and players have to make sure they have the latest version or their game can get messed up. This isn’t so bad if you just have a few items of CC or a few mods, but if you have an awful lot of them, it is an ordeal to try to find which piece is breaking your game!

  3. 350 new swatches…and none of them will match the pieces of furniture to make sets. I so miss CAS.

  4. I wonder how long it will take for console players to get it! I wish we could just color items like we used to do in The Sims 3!

  5. I think it’s great that they’re updating base game item swatches. Can’t wait to see! Is there’s a date when this update is coming? Or maybe it’s coming with the new expansion? 🙂

    • Só para deixar claro eu sou fã de The sims joguei todos.
      Criadores do jogo vocês poderiam melhorar as cores de parede e chão que the sims 4 não tem cores muito bonitas para por na casa mesmo com algumas expansões novas..
      Por favor melhorem isso ! ❤**
