The Sims 4 November 2019 Update: Content Overview

The Sims 4 received a new content update today that added a new accessibility feature, updates to the home screen, some new holiday CAS assets for children and toddlers, new build tools, and a new radio station.

Let’s dive right in and showcase all these new goodies, shall we?

Home Screen

Upon loading the game, players will now be informed of all the latest updates for the game as well as new blog posts and any upcoming content. Players can cycle through these notifications to make sure they stay up to date on all the latest Sims news.

CAS

For children, we have 1 new female top, 1 unisex top, and 1 unisex pair of boots.

For toddlers, we have 1 new male full-body outfit, 1 new female full-body outfit, and 1 unisex pair of shoes.

We also have 4 new styled looks across both genders and age groups! Look for them in the everyday and cold weather clothing categories.

Build/Buy

Builders rejoice! There are new tools regarding columns at your disposal! Columns are now multi-story and can be dragged out up to four stories high to accommodate the tallest buildings. Columns that have had their height extended will keep their height when being moved or copied.

Most columns can be dragged out to the full four stories, but a few have a max height restriction due to their visual design. You can see which columns have a max height restriction when you scroll over their thumbnail in the Build/Buy catalogue.

New Radio Station

The Hip Hop radio station from Get Famous has now been added to the base game! Songs on the Hip Hop station that were exclusive to Get Famous still require Get Famous, but some new songs have been added to the Hip Hop station for the base game:

  • “Big Moe,” by Beau Young Prince

  • “Dumbstruck,” by Ceraadi

  • “Good Life,” by RDGLDGRN & Daniela

  • “Block List,” by Rico Nasty

  • “Litest,” by Supreme Madness

UI Scaling

There is now a new tab in the Game Options, called Accessibility. Players can now scale the UI up and down in the Accessibility tab. If the player tries to scale the UI too large or small, a warning will appear informing the player that some parts of the UI may overlap or bleed off the screen at the current size.

That’s it for new content features but today’s update also came with TONNES of crucial bug fixes for both the base game and various packs! See the full patch notes here for more details!

  • This update wrecked my game. After it was downloaded, and I went into my game, all my sims had question marks and red spots all over. Some had disappeared and some were completely unresponsive. I tried taking out my cc and starting a new world but nothing has helped.

  • I just updated my game and my gallery has disappeared. All that is there is my library. When I go into options there isn’t even a setting to go online

  • When I wanted to make a new game. Every time I make a new sim and move them into a lot. I go back to the map and lost my sim I created. I repair my game and deleted some content and nothing works.

  • The update has broken my game. Every time I make a new sim and try and move them into a house or i try and play an old save the game crashes

  • I only have basegame and after this update you can’t even get into the 2 original cities, I can’t play at all. Any suggestions on what to do?
