Learn more about the Milestones Feature and Cross-Pack Compatibility!

The recent live stream for The Sims 4 Growing Together was jam-packed and full of new information. There’s also been some new information about the game straight from developers!

In this post, we are going to focus on the upcoming milestones feature as well as cross-pack compatibility.

Growing Together with Sims 4 Milestones

Milestones are a new feature coming with the upcoming expansion pack. The aim is to help document those standout moments in your Sims lives.

This new panel is located in the Simology panel under the traits section and depending on your Sims age, can be broken down into several different categories or different milestones.

While no specifics were shared as to what counts as a milestone, it was easy to get an idea from the stream as to some of the interactions and events that contribute to them. Of course, you’ll also see them pop up as a purple notification in the top right-hand side of your screen too!

You’ll also notice that some Milestones in Growing Together will reward your Sims with physical rewards such as a Marriage Certificate for when your Sims get married.

Milestones for Infants

For infants, milestones can be broken down into Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Social, Firsts, and, Life. This can include events like rolling over for the first time, learning to reach, having their first visitor, and more.

You’ll notice that some milestones aren’t fully colored in like others. These in particular show milestones that could be next for your Sim. They also give you an idea of the direction your Infants progression is going in. However, as you complete more milestones, you’ll be able to unlock various rewards and interactions.

Milestones do give you a real sense of seeing just how much your Sims have developed over time. Especially it’s shaping up to be a great feature for all kinds of players. Just think of how you can integrate this feature into storytelling!

Older Sims and Milestones

On the other hand, an older Sim would have their milestones broken down more into Life and Firsts. These could include the first time your Sim WooHoo’s or getting their first job. Getting married and having a baby. There are so many possibilities to be discovered when Milestones launch in the Growing Together expansion.

You can also take a more in-depth look at your Sims Milestones via an additional screen. It does appear that you can also look back at those your Sims have earned during their lifetime too.

Milestones are a great way, especially for infants to track the progress of their Sims as well as being a way to look back at those big events. You can truly see just how much they have grown up over time just like in real life.

A fun fact about milestones is it appears that there is no limit to how many your Sim can have! As confirmed by SimGuruMorgan on Twitter in response to another player. While the Simology panel will only display so many, you’ll be able to view all Milestones in more depth via an additional pop-up.

While there is still a lot to be discovered about Milestones, this new Growing Together feature will be fun to explore when the pack launches!

Cross-pack Compatibility with Growing Together

However, Milestones are not the only thing that players are looking forward to in the new expansion. For those players who have a variety of additional content, cross-pack play is something that many look forward to discovering.

It’s not just interactions between packs that players are curious about. For example, if infants will be able to interact with pets or not but also when it comes to milestones too.
