Latest Sims 4 Update Fixes Bugs and Adds New Ones for Non-English Versions of the Game
Whoops. Before you can even talk about new features, but only in simlish English, the latest update for The Sims 4 added more bugs than it fixed.
Okay, we’re being a bit harsh here (and really, we’re not trying developers… the number of times we’ve made much worse mistakes), but these little quirks can be pretty annoying.
Especially when players get all the kit and caboodle (sorry, not sorry for that pun) and yet only seven years after launch, story progression is coming to The Sims 4.
Snark aside, The Sims 4 November 30, 2021 update added likes and dislikes for Cottagecore in the Music category and for Cross Stitch and Knitting in the Activity section. The official patch notes for the new Sims update even stated that they were a bit late…. and yet… players who have not installed the English version of The Sims 4 will have found… well… nothing.
Players who updated their games, ran a new save with no mods or CCs installed, reported that the new text descriptions for “Cross-Stitching” and “Cottagecore” were not there.
Usually, after a Sims 4 update, players who like to live on the wild side and don’t back up or update their mods will have a few moments of frenzied panic when something like this happens. Sometimes it’s an easy fix just remembering that you’re supposed to re-enable mods and CC after a Sims 4 patch.
This time, however, it has nothing to do with mods or CC. EA’s Help Forum moderators responded quickly to the reports, saying:
Just to let you know that the team is aware of the missing non-English channels for new likes/dislikes and are working on a fix.
Hopefully working on this solution will come sooner than this Lofty window that was advertised as part of a Sims 4 bundle all through August and only appeared to players in the latest update, for the base game to start.
OK OK. Snark more. For real this time.
