Today we’ll get a smallish update with a few bug fixes and some costumes. The biggest thing of this patch are changes coming to Mac.

If you are on MacOS Lion, make sure to not update your game cause it won’t run anymore. Find all details here: Information for Mac users running macOS Lion (10.7) and here: Sims 4 Lion users – do not update your game. The good news is, that the change makes the game playable on MacOS Catalina which will be most people playing on a Mac. Seriously Lion Users: Update your OS.

We have a couple new costumes for your Sims collection! An adult male and female robot costume are now available in Create a Sim.

In addition we have a couple of issues that we addressed, that we hope will improve your game experience.


  • Inward facing doors set to “Lock Door For All” will now actually lock.
  • Attempting to place a room while using the Sims 3 Camera Mode should no longer inform players that “Roofs can’t be placed in enclosed rooms.”
  • Sims will no longer become jealous when sims with the Player trait perform romantic interactions with other Sims in front of them.
  • The cheat “clock._set_milliseconds_per_sim_second” should no longer crash the game.
    • If you know what this cheat does, feel free to let SimGuruNinja know.
  • We addressed an issue that was allowing non greeted Sims to enter your apartment uninvited.
  • Sims in the Actor career on a gig that have cancelled the “Tell director ready to perform” interaction, will no longer find themselves blocked by being unable to initiate the interaction.
  • Sims should no longer get the Sudden Chill moodlet after drinking several Kava beverages.
