Today’s patch brings us skin tones with sliders as well as makeup sliders and finally the ability to make them opaque again (THANK YOU). There’s also updates to some more base game hair and the revamped the main menu (not to my liking I must say).
Bug-wise there’s some good stuff. Sims should now age up again with the cake (no mention of the pets aging though). The digital sketchpad should now longer reset Sims (does this mean the Freelancer Careers will finally be working as they should ?), Windows/Doors should no longer show as cut-outs in Mirrors and Father Winter will no longer create endlessly.
What does the Father Winter fix mean for affected games ? Well, that’s unclear. Patch note say they will correct over time (my guess is that means, they will be culled if you ever reach the culling point without the game freezing). New ones should no longer generate but I’ve looked at some saves and that might not be a solution, especially if your computer doesn’t have that much RAM. I will test this with the saves I’ve got and see how it goes and update the main post linked above.

Happy Holidays Simmers!
It’s time to go back in to Create a Sim! Where in this update you will find 100+ new skin tones, customization sliders for skin tones and makeup, and three improved base game hairstyles!
Every skin tone now has a value slider that allows you to change the light to dark value of that skin tone, unlocking a much wider variety of skin tone options for you to play with! You will also find that our skin tones are now filterable to warm, cool, and neutral tones (as well as miscellaneous that covers our occult skin tones).
The new makeup sliders add more choices and opportunities for you to customize your Sims, and express your Sim’s style! Hue, saturation, value or brightness, and opacity are now available to modify on the makeup. We have locked some of the sliders where it did not provide an optimal experience or make sense for the makeup. Expect us to continue our working on these issues into the future to provide you with more.
In addition to the customization opportunities provided, you can also save custom swatches as you tweak your sliders to get the perfect look. When you click on the swatch (for skin tones and makeup) as you modify the sliders, you will have an opportunity to save your custom settings, so you can re-use it later without having to remember your perfect looks!
Did we mention that we made some hair updates? We did – we updated a base game child hair (cfHair_BraidedPonyTail), and we added a second version of that hair that removes the baby hairs (cfHair_BraidedPonyTailPlain). And we updated a base game male hair that you may find difficult to recognize from the original hair (ymHair_flatTopTextured)!
We have updated the Main Menu!… Again! The idea behind this change is to create a more cohesive experience and give Packs a more proper space as we continue to grow our content lineup. As a nice bonus, we highlighted the Gallery in a more meaningful way to inspire you.
