The Sims 4’s latest patch is live, in the form of PC 126.96.36.1990/Mac 188.8.131.520, and it brings with it a multitude of bug fixes and improvements that were introduced following the release of the Seasons and June updates. SimGuruGrant took to the official Sims forums to look over the patch notes, which as always include some humor to keep things light and decidedly on-brand for the Sims.
The Sims 4’s base game got a fix for problems where the game would lag when you place wall patters on blocks touching roof, and Sims will no longer route fail when enter a room on foundation level 1 that doesn’t have stairs. Instead, they step up like a “big kid.” Other highlights include the Cats & Dogs update getting a patch where your pets don’t keep filling your Sims’ queue with various interactions. “We want the pets to be friendly, but perhaps not that friendly,” the update states.
You can check out the entirety of the patch notes below to see what’s been changed, and happy Simming!
