Today’s patch is preparing the game for Discover University and is huge. There are over 150 bug fixes in the notes (and that’s probably not all cause not everything gets listed). They fixed some long standing issues that first have been reported in 2014 which goes to show that stuff isn’t forgotten. It just sometimes takes longer.
We’re also getting some new stuff like Multi Story Columns and UI Scaling can now be done from the options menu and doesn’t have to be done manually in the file.
The bug where vendors use the fireplace as a portal to spawn and hopefully other unwanted visitors will also no longer spawn. Geekcon visitors will be happy to hear that visitors should be wearing pants again and it should be raining less, which in turn doesn’t break all the computers. Screen Captures will also capture the UI again and the random textures on scout uniforms for low settings should be gone.
That said, some of the huge, new issues are not fixed. There’s hardly any notable fixes for Realm of Magic, especially Spellcaster eyes are not fixed. They did fix the Level reset for bloodline trait so that’s good though. Also not fixed are the task not fulfilling for the freelancer career as well as the whims and odd jobs not fulfilling.

NEW & IMPROVED FEATURES
Multi Story Columns
I’m not sure calling them multi-story columns is accurate. They are more like multi-height columns. Just go into the build catalog, place a column, grab the handle at the top, and drag it up and down to re-size. Some have a maximum size, others however… I think I topped out around 100 feet.
Now available in the Options menu – UI Scaling! Are you a 4k player with tiny user interface issues? Do you prefer your interface to be readable at distances greater than fifty feet away? Have you a desire to customize the scale to your personal preferences? Now you can! From the Options panel, open up Game Options, and choose Accessibility. Stay away from the red parts of the slider to keep things in the safe range for your display. But, if you are feeling adventurous, give it a try, go crazy! If for some reason you find yourself in a bad state, you can always reset – either from the options panel, or by using Ctrl+U to reset the scaling back to default!
Main Menu Messaging
We know you want to know EVERYTHING about what’s going on, so we’ve added the ability to show you the latest and greatest Sims content on the Main Menu. You’ll be able to learn about free content, check out the latest updates on upcoming releases, pore over the newest blog posts, and more!
We have updated the Holiday Celebration Pack with some new children and toddler clothing! If you haven’t already added the Holiday Celebration Pack to your game, click on the icon at the Main Menu, and download the free pack! From there, head on in to Create a Sim and select the Holiday filter to find the new assets! Children have a new male top, female top, and winter boots! Toddlers have a new outfit for males, a new outfit for females, and some shoes! Or open up the Styled Looks, where SimGuruMorgan created some great new looks with the content!
We have made the Hip Hop Radio Station available for everyone! This means that it is no longer exclusive to Get Famous. However, Get Famous specific music will still need Get Famous to be played.
We added the following songs as part of this update:
