Patch Notes

Update 9/21/2021

PC: 1.80.69.1030 / Mac: 1.80.69.1230

Console: Version 1.48

Hello Simmers!

We hope this Game Update finds you well!

As Summer has ended and the Pumpkin Spice season starts (you all know I’m ready for my pumpkin spiced coffee!), our Art Team has a treat for Simmers that love to build. If you are not an expert builder that is quite alright, I’m not either, but I do enjoy trying a few styles and choices so no worries in that regard.

Thanks again for your continued support, we truly appreciate it!

Chaus!

What’s New?

149 assets – 1,200 vaaariants

149 assets – 1,200 variants to enjoy so dear

149 assets – 1,200 vaaariants

How do we tell you about these… easily?

In pictures, in writing, in cups of coffee.

In gameplay, in video, in pictures, in laughter.

In 149 items – 1,200 variants – how do you measure this new thing we did with this in hand?

How about you just show? Yes, how about you just show?

Don’t measure at all, just show.

Our art team took over this Game Update and they have added about 1,200 new variants (yes, you read me correctly, about 1,200 variants) to 149 Base Game items in Build Mode. The Art Team’s vision was to complement and enhance these assets so Simmers have more choices and have more use out of them. Also, why not?

I will list the names of the assets, with images, that we have added variants to. Huge props to SimGuruBeth for providing these fabulous screenshots! In these screenshots you will notice some arrows and green dots, those represent the new additions.

Ok – enough of me rambling about, are you all ready? <takes deep breath>
