New The Sims 4 Update: Feb 28th, 2024 (Pack Ads Hotfix)

Sims 4 Update

The pulsating icon should no longer pulsate. That much.

EA released a new Sims 4 Update on February 27th, 2024 that caused major backlash. Their new “Packs you may like” button that was added in the middle of the game User Interface was causing many to report issues of unstoppable flashing of the icon.

Today, there’s an update that fixes the pulsation and flashing of the shopping cart icon. Don’t you worry though, when the time comes for a new DLC release you’ll definitely be let known.

Hopefully EA isn’t considering sound alerts…Anyways, back to The Sims 4’s latest patch:

Bug Fixes

The Sims 4

  • Addressed an issue where Sims that had achieved certain skill levels and had unlocked or crafted specific recipes, or had written music, were then unable to select interactions on themselves, on other Sims, and on certain objects.
  • Fixed the cart button to correct an issue that was causing it to animate for longer and more frequently than intended.
