Maxis has released The Sims 4 update 1.59 and it’s to bring the Little Campers kit DLC data into the game, and also something for the LGBTQA community, as players can now add custom pronouns into the game! Check out The Sims 4 Patch Notes for May 24 below.

The Sims 4 Update 1.59 Patch Notes | The Sims 4 May 24 Patch Notes:

Update: Maxis has published the official changelog!

Customizable pronouns are now available in Create A Sim

We’re happy to announce that starting today, you’ll be able to customize your Sims’ pronouns in Create A Sim (CAS) in The Sims 4 if your game client is set to English.

To change your Sim’s pronouns, simply click on the “Hello, my name is…” tab next to the plumbob. You will see the “Custom Pronouns” drop-down menu where you can choose from They/Them, She/She, He/Him, and Custom Pronouns.

If you have chosen to use custom pronouns, the feature will automatically change the pronouns that display when you refer to the Sim to match what you have chosen. Although the feature has been fully tested, there may be cases where the incorrect conjugation of pronouns or the default pronoun of assigned gender may still appear due to intricacies of English grammar. We will work to improve the functionality over time, so please let us know if you come across any instances where the incorrect pronoun is displayed on this HQ Thread Answers.

Initially, the customizable pronouns feature will only be available in English, but we plan to roll out the feature to all 18 languages ​​over time. At launch, custom pronouns can be downloaded from the Gallery and used only in English.

For this first iteration of the feature, we focused on pronouns. While pronouns are a very important element when it comes to greater inclusivity for The Sims 4, we understand that customizable pronouns will not make the game 100% neutral. You will always see examples of gendered language in the game, such as mother, father, policeman, policewoman, etc.

Making The Sims 4 more inclusive of gender neutrality is a process of continuous learning and development for us and we will continue to update this feature over time. For now, we hope that the ability to choose your favorite and custom pronouns for your Sims will make your game feel more welcoming and lovable.

BUGS FIXES

  • We reduced the clipping around the ears while using the braided hair with the red knot.
  • The “Change Game” interaction should now appear when interacting with the “Don’t Wake the Llama” tabletop game.
