Hello Simmers

Following the latest update, we have another one for you, this time putting some emphasis on the console version of The Sims 4, optimizing some key interfaces for easier controller interaction. While you can use a mouse and keyboard in both the PlayStation and Xbox versions of The Sims 4, most console sims like to sit back with a controller; These updates are a small part of a larger ongoing focus on improving the console experience for everyone.

We also continue to invite all console Sims to give us your thoughts and feedback on playing The Sims 4 on PlayStation and Xbox (especially with a controller) at HQ answersThere we have received excellent feedback so far which the team is looking into.

Not playing on console? No problem, we have new content and fixes for everyone in this update too. So let’s get down to business and see what’s new.

-The Sims team

What’s new?

We have so much new stuff with this release and we can’t wait to dive in and tell you all about it. We do want to quickly point out that while we’ve added quite a few new assets, these are visual only and don’t add new gameplay functionality. Now, let’s get to the good stuff.

Medical wearables

There is a new category of medical wearables under body and face accessories in sim creation.

Select your Sims face and then select Accessories to find the Medical Wearables category which contains a new hearing aid for your toddler or older Sims. This medical wearable comes in fifteen color variants, and can be assigned to your Sims’ right, left, or both ears.

The medical wearables category can also be found by selecting a Sims body and then selecting a body category. Here you can find sugar monitors for your child and older Sims that can be added to the right and left arms of your Sims, and also to the lower abdomen of Sims on the right or left side.

Top Surgery Scar

Under that body category, all players can find a body scars category with the option for sims who are teens and older (male or female frame) to add a leading surgery scar to their sims.

Binders and uniforms

With this update, players can find two new properties in Create a Sim. Under the tanks, in the shirts category, you’ll find a top Binder asset for your Sims teens and older. In the lingerie category for underwear, there’s a new Shapewear asset for your Sims as well!

Let there be light switches!

For our builders who have long wanted to complete that perfect room, a new light switch is now available in build mode!


Location UI is coming to PlayStation

Previously, The Sims 4 on PlayStation required Sims to calibrate their screen settings at a system level by switching to consoles Settings > Sound and display > Display area settings and setting the display.

This option will continue to work but now PlayStation Simmers will be able to adjust the location of the UI. The wizard will run during the initial launch of The Sims 4 or can be run manually Game Options > Other.

We still recommend that you calibrate your display area settings through your PlayStation settings.

Cursor scale

Simmers can now adjust the cursor size on both PlayStation and Xbox when displayed in virtual cursor mode on your controller, or while you’re using a mouse and keyboard to play.

This extra level of customization allows you to have a larger cursor without having to scale up the entire game UI. This should make it easier to see even when you’re relaxing, relaxing in your favorite seat and looking at the TV screen across the room.

You can adjust the size of the in-game cursor by going to Game Options > Accessibility.

Terminal build mode improvements

Jumping into Build mode will feel a little different… well okay, a lot different. The catalog now opens by default and stays open when you grab items and interact with the lot. You no longer need to reopen the catalog and re-navigate to the menu you were in all along. only. time.

No matter what cursor mode you’re in, you can seamlessly interact with the catalog or pitch, aligning our console experience closer to that of a PC.

Tutorial system in console build mode

If you are a new player or have the tutorial enabled, the help you received from Emily in CAS and Live Mode will carry over to Build Mode. If you are not familiar with construction, using the tools or how to find the object that looks right and place it exactly where you want it, Emily will be there to guide you through construction mode to help you unleash your creativity.

Controls and navigation updates

While we’ve kept the ability to switch control methods by tapping the touchpad on PlayStation or the display button on Xbox, we’ve reduced the amount of times we switch between the two modes automatically.

Since we’re talking about overriding the control methods, if you’ve enabled the control legend Game Options > Other, we now present a prompt for replacing a cursor at the top. Not only that, next to the prompt there is a little reminder of which control scheme you are currently using.

We’ve also added controller shortcuts to some dialogs and screens to help simplify and speed up in-game navigation. These button prompts are displayed on supported screens and can be used where you would normally have a lot of scrolling to get to a confirm or cancel button.

Bug fixes

base game

  • Toddlers can do weird things sometimes, but bathing in their slippers shouldn’t be like that. Now their feet will be cleaned, just like everything else.
  • The place details icon in the top left corner of the screen contains a lot of useful information but that doesn’t mean it should always appear as new. Now the symbols flair will only appear when something is really new.
  • Sims made using CAS stories with a ‘high’ starting fund should now receive 30,000 Simuelons instead of the standard 20,000 for their home fund.
  • Sims love a good makeover, but when changing a designed look in CAS it’s taking it a bit too far your sims look changes, not just their outfits. Styled Look will now only update the outfit your Sim is wearing and not turn them into a completely different Sim.
  • When adjusting your Sim’s physical frame while using the Bantu Knots (yfHair_SDX019BantuKnots) or Two Strand Twist (ymHair_SDX019TwoStrandTwists) hairstyles, you’ll continue to see Plumbob’s icon in the thumbnail as a reminder of the fantastic collaboration we’ve done with him DeeSims Bringing these styles to everyone.
  • The objectives in the Distress of Parenting scenario will reflect a child sim maturing into a teenager after blowing out the birthday candles and progressing through the scenario.
  • Sims Children who receive at least a B grade average in school will be recognized for their achievements by making progress in the parenting scenario goals.
  • If your sims reach level 5 in one of Sofia and Leonardo’s skills before the target is activated in the parenting mode scenario, it will be accurately marked as meeting the criteria.
  • Also related – teenagers have ambitions (apparently waking up before noon doesn’t count) but in the scenario of parenting situations teenagers are able to complete the goal of ambitions in adolescence.
  • Some say it’s a conspiracy, some say the aliens got fed up with the parents and just sent them home, others just think it’s a bug. Either way, parents no longer have to come back in the middle of the aliens stole my parents scenario as they drive off the lot and back again.
  • Stuck in the Shadows isn’t really meant to be stuck… Completing the scenario should complete now that the objectives have been achieved.
  • Emily likes to help Simmers get a start, but it seems she was a bit too eager and prevented scenario gates from appearing in CAS if she hadn’t been seen before. Now, if you haven’t seen Emily yet, and you start a new scenario, you’ll be presented with your objectives so you can create the perfect household to meet the challenges ahead. Emily will be there if you need her later.
  • Experienced sims who don’t need Emily’s help and choose to disable the tutorial system, in the game options, while CAS won’t run into the problem of not being able to create a sim because the options are not accessible.
  • Merging Sims from the gallery while Emily was walking you through CAS will no longer prevent Emily from explaining the final parts of the CAS tutorial system.
  • Entering CAS from the simology option will not prevent you from creating a sim story.
  • While using the tutorial to customize your Sim, Add New Sim will not be available until you complete the Sim customization tutorial or opt out of tips.
  • Some tips in build mode prevented you from accessing features like Bulldoze and Save to My Library; All options are selectable again.
  • Sims with custom frames should have a full set of nails to choose from, including those from the packs.

City Living

  • Being an interior designer can be tough, it’s made even tougher if you can’t get in. Sims who get a gig at the Penthouse will now be able to knock on the door and enter to work their magic in style.
  • If there’s one main thing you’d expect light poles to do, it’s illuminate! Well, we changed a few bulbs, shocked once or twice, checked the wiring and now they should be good to go.

Get famous

  • After our previous update that brought a new look to the lessons and a larger, easier-to-read layout, it unexpectedly caused the long lesson titles to extend beyond the box boundaries in some languages. The titles should all fit in their designated places and be fully legible for everyone.

Eco lifestyle

  • The Plumbob Perfect Ceiling Fan, the Sandstorm Ceiling Fan, the Dizzy Palms Ceiling Fan now all come with power ratings.

high school years

  • Sims wearing the yfAcc_NecklaceEP12Beaded_SolidRainbowLt necklace should no longer see it hover near them when they zoom in on the camera. We must have forgotten to remove the levitation spell, sorry about that!


  • Sims who made a living as a paranormal investigator and independently visited San Michonne often found that doors were missing from apartments, unless you were in Walls Up View. Doors should now appear as expected. But are they really there? Someone needs to investigate! crazy!

Bust The Dust

  • Dust bunnies and dust will appear after reloading, now where did I put this Dust Dandy cordless vacuum cleaner?

external withdrawal

  • We have learned a lesson and that lesson is that our lessons should have titles. Outdoor Retreat should appear under lessons as expected and no longer be a mystery category.
