Please also read this post carefully: In Preparation for patching
We are finally getting FAMILY TREES. Been waiting for those since I found out that they won’t be in the game at Gamescom 2014.
Maxis has fixed yet another the map loading issue with this patch. You should be able to continue playing any save games that previously didn’t work. Time will tell, if there were even more issues and if all of them are fixed. Should you have further issues, please let me know in this thread: [Info Request] Loading family just loads Map again (Positive feedback is also welcome)
EA has also fixed the bartender issue and other common smaller issues. Detailed patch notes below.
I do not know what the current status on the Code/Text issue is. AFAIK it’s an Origin issue and not a Sims issue as such so it needs an Origin patch to fix. So you might need to play the reinstall game yet again.
Greetings Simmers and Happy 15th Anniversary!
Let us set the clock back to the early days of The Sims 4, when times were simpler… when…
…our fore-coders released upon the digital landscape light on the Sims, and their brothers, their sisters, mothers, fathers, step-relations, half-brothers and sisters, and spouses. And the Sims, for a time, were happy. But only for a time, for soon their families grew. Brothers and sisters moved out, parents passed on, and grandparents were surprisingly spry and long lived. New members of the family were showing up every day (the loved and un-loved alike). And the Sims called to one another lost, seeking guidance…
“Are you my brother? I have forgotten your face, and don’t remember your name.” The Sims were unable to claim connection to one another, for their memories had become as holes in a block of Swiss cheese.
And thus it was, until now…
Genealogy is here! Explore the lineage of your Sims, their names, faces, and relationships! Remember who they are to one another!
Return with your Sim, and travel through the branches of their family … David from down the street is a half-brother to Stephanie, the long lost granddaughter of Two-chins, the homeless guy in the park who is the father of Angelina the bartender, who is your sister… and there was much rejoicing.
In addition to traveling through the lineage of your Sims, with this update you can now dress up Grandma Betty in some new Valentine’s clothing, or just hang around with a gnome and a bear.
We’ve also addressed a few bugs, including the map bounce issue, and, for all those Sims who spent their lifetimes waiting to be served, bartenders are fixed!
We greatly appreciate the feedback, the save files, and all the help in narrowing down issues as they arise.
