In today’s Inside Maxis Livestream The Sims Team answered some of the burning questions from Simmers regarding The Sims 4 and its future.
In the Livestream we got a confirmation regarding the plans for updating ALL of The Sims 4’s current NPCs – from Willow Creek to the latest world. This means that The Sims Team is currently working on updating the visuals (and lore, story) informations on all of the characters from the beginning of The Sims 4 Series.
Check out what @Ashaife, Assistant Producer on The Sims 4, has stated during the stream:
Question: Why are skintones getting lighter over the course of The Sims games?
Answer: Hundreds of townies have come to life since the first Sims game launch. A lot of love has been put into every single one of them and we acknowledge that they need unique care and attention – so it’s about time for a tiny overhaul.
We are currently in the process of updating NPCs in The Sims 4 including visuals as well as their lore. This will take some time to accomplish as we have to spend some time with each and every single Sim from Willow Creek to Henford-on-Bagley. That means we’re taking it step-by-step (or townie by townie) and we’re excited to update you at a later date.
