The Sims 4 Growing Together: Milestones Guide

Learn all about how milestones affect your Sims throughout their lives!

One of the most exciting new features of The Sims 4 Growing Together is milestones! Milestones are a lot like memories from past Sims games, except milestones continue to affect your Sim in the long term. Additionally, their overall implementation is a lot less cluttered and messy than previous memory systems, too.

Let’s jump right into how milestones work!

The Sims 4 Growing Together: Milestones 101

The Sims 4 Growing Together Milestones

All Sims from the infant life stage to the elder life stage can gain milestones. You don’t need to do anything specific to acquire milestones; they will naturally acquire them as they go through life and experience different things. Depending on your Sim’s age, their milestones will be focused on different aspects of life. For infants, their milestones revolve around learning how to do things for the very first time. They won’t be able to sit up in a high chair to eat until they hit the milestone for learning how to sit up, for example. For older Sims, milestones revolve around things like careers, love, and starting a family.

Of course, not all milestones are positive! The Sims 4 Growing Together milestones mark important events in your Sim’s life, both good and bad. Things like fires, divorces, and losing your job are also milestones that Sims can experience.

Some milestones continue to affect Sims throughout their lives. This is most notable during the infant life stage, where hitting a new milestone allows the infant to do more things. Older Sims will still be affected by their milestones, though. For example, experiencing their first fire may cause them to be tense in the area where the fire started.

Understanding the Milestone Menu

The Sims 4 Growing Together Milestones

The Sims 4 Growing Together milestones can be located in your Sim’s info panel. It’s the same tab that contains their traits and preferences. On this tab, you will often see greyed out milestones. These icons are like hints or suggestions for what may be next for your Sim based on milestones they’ve already acquired. Hover over these milestones for a hint about how to get it. You don’t necessarily have to acquire these milestones; they’re just suggestions, but they can help give you a sense of direction if you’re not sure what to do next with your Sim. They are especially helpful for infants, who need to hit specific milestones in order to be able to do new activities. You can check this panel to see what milestone you should aim to hit next.

Also, to keep things organized, you’ll only be able to see milestones for your Sim’s current age in the Sim Info panel. To see all of your Sim’s milestones throughout their whole life, open up the milestone menu in this tab. From this menu, you can click through your Sim’s previous ages to see what milestones they got at that age. Additionally, milestones are further separated into sub-categories for each stage of life to help you find relevant milestones easier.

For players, our best advice is to try and do many different things with your Sims at all stages of life. Obviously, the more your Sim experiences, the wider variety of milestones you’ll unlock for them.

The Sims 4 Growing Together Milestones List

Additionally, below you will find the full list of Sims 4 Growing Together milestones available for each life stage across all packs. Of course, players who do not own the pack related to the milestone will not have this milestone available in their game. Moreover, please keep in mind that these are all the milestones we found in the XML files. There are a LOT of milestones in the game and it’s possible we missed some but we will continue to update the list as more are discovered. The wording may also be different in-game than in the XML files.

Also, some milestones are general milestones that can be acquired in multiple ages. For the sake of simplicity, these are also listed under adult milestones.
