The latest patch comes with some great features that you’ll definitely love. We’ve made a small list highlighting some of the things you’ll get once you patch your game.

Swimming In The Ocean

Yes, you heard correctly! Your Sims can now go swimming in the oceans! Any ocean at all! Go swimming in the rivers in Riverview, or at the  beach in Sunset Valley.

Diving Board

The newest addition to the build catalogue is the long awaited diving board! It has made a return in this patch, just in time for Seasons. It can be found under pool objects. It can be used by children, teenagers, young adults, adults, and elders.

Blueprint Mode

This all new feature allows the player to create and edit lots with ease with the ability to easily place down pre-made furnished rooms. After they’ve been placed, you can go in deeper and modify to your taste. This makes building quicker for those whom want to get into the game and build their own home! This feature can be accessed in build/buy mode.

Greetings Cards

New Capture Feature

Capture This Moment can be found on the UI now, and still works the same with memories as it did before. It’s self explanatory, and as it says – allows you to capture the moment!

Memories Be Gone!

Memories can finally be disabled (I still got notified about them, so not sure if it actually works properly). So gone are the days of being pestered by memories.

Create A Sim

There are a few new features in Create A Sim too! The first noticable feature is the new filters! This allows you to sort content from custom content, stuff packs, expansion packs, the store, or base game. You can also now give Sims a bald head and no eyebrows!

Attraction System

An Attraction System has been added. This is a new initial romantic system that provides bonuses to socialization and romance when the Sim is attracted by certain attributes.

Seasons Collection Items

The patch also includes icons for Seasons collection items. Now when you create your custom collections, you can use these beauties!
