Today’s update for The Sims 4 which just recently launched on PC and Consoles is primarily focusing on the new Neighborhood Stories. However, there have been several other additions and changes done with the new Patch! There are new things from new Aspirations and CAS Preferences to even new Game Options!
Here’s a rundown of everything new and added to The Sims 4:
Sims Delivery Express
The Sims Delivery Express has been teased for a long time to make its way into The Sims 4, and now the system has been fully integrated within the game!
How does it work? Simply open up your Game Options and under the Sims Delivery Tab you’ll be able to Check for new Content whenever it becomes available, as well as set specific options for this system. You can make the game check for Sims Deliveries Every 1 Hour; 30 Minutes; only on Startup or Never, as well as choose whether you want these Deliveries to be automatically downloaded into your game or not. These options are available for both PC and Console players and will ensure a more smooth delivery of CAS and Build Content into the Base Game, as well as smaller bug fixes that can be delivered more instantly.
If you choose not to participate into these Sims Deliveries you’ll still receive content through The Sims 4 Updates eventually.
New Aspirations and Reward Traits
The new update also comes packed with new Aspirations (and their respective Reward Traits!).
Under the Popularity Aspiration Category you’ll be able to find the Neighborhood Confidante Aspiration with a set of 3 different requirements. The Reward Trait for this Aspiration is “Confidante“.
The other new Aspiration is “Villanous Valentine” under the Deviance Aspiration Category, which brings the Twisted Heart Reward Trait when completed.
Both Aspirations only have one set of certain goals to complete, as you can see below:
New CAS Preferences
This one is definitely long overdue, but still a welcome addition. If you have The Sims 4 Cottage Living Expansion Pack you’ll get a new CAS Preference under Hobbies for Cross-Stitching, as well as the Cottagecore Music Preference.
Those with The Sims 4 Nifty Knitting Stuff Pack can now finally add Knitting as their Liked (or Disliked) Hobby!
If you play The Sims 4 in a language that’s not English these new CAS Preferences are probably not tagged at all in the game. The Sims Team is aware of this issue and should have it resolved soon.
Free Toddler Stuff Hairstyle
The Hairstyle from The Sims 4 Toddlers Stuff Pack has been integrated into The Sims 4 Base Game.
The Industrial Loft Window
It’s finally here! After months on waiting for the Window from The Sims 4 Industrial Loft Kit Promotional Image, it has been made available for everyone who have the Base Game.
…and of course – the Neighborhood Stories
We are currently in the process of writing a detailed overview of this brand new feature for The Sims 4. Stick around!
