30 November 2021
There is a new Sims 4 patch available for the base game. Back up your mods and clear your saves folder, it’s a biggie.
Updated on: 4 December 2021
Quick note: If you are playing The Sims 4 in a language that is not English, text descriptions for the “Cross-Stitching” and “Cottage Core” Likes/Dislikes are missing. This is not related to your mods or CC, but a bug created by the thing that should fix the bugs.

Back up your mods and clone your save folder, because The Sims 4 have rolled out a base game update that brings the so-called Neighbourhood Stories (a sort of story progression) to Simmers a mere seven years after the game first launched.
At the time of writing, there were no disasters being reported in terms of broken mods, but players and modders might still be busy testing. Since the most significant changes come in the form of “under the hood” stuff (oooh, did you like our pun?), gameplay mods are the most likely to suffer with this latest Sims 4 update.
That said, sometimes the updates for The Sims that we expect to break our games completely, cause little to no damage. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore backing up your Sims mods and saves before updating. Oh and, of course, remember to turn your mods back on after you download the latest Sims 4 patch.
As always, we take the patch notes verbatim from the official announcement on The Sims forums, and we edit only for style and brevity where required. Patch notes now available below.
Hello Simmers!
Hope you are all well wherever you are in the World.
SimGuruFrost is already listening to Christmas music, I don’t know why, but I’m still holding off on playing it. I refuse as it is still NOVEMBER (I understand that with this update it is the last day of November, but it is still November, everyone… just saying).
But regardless of how I feel about Christmas music being heard everywhere today and not later, the one thing I relish is the excitement that this season brings. It’s the season we get together with family, and cherish whatever time we have with our loved ones, even if only digitally.
We have an exciting update for you as we introduce Neighbourhood Stories, some tech additions, and a few small but eventful things we managed to get into this update.
Thank you for your continued support and feedback and, remember, have fun!
Chaus!

Introducing Neighbourhood Stories.
As you heard in our latest Inside Maxis, we are introducing to the game the first phase of our latest feature, Neighbourhood Stories.
This feature is about adding flavour (sabor!) and more life to Neighbourhood Sims who live outside your active household. As noted in Nate’s Blog, today’s update will focus on Sims that are connected to your Households and have relationships of some kind with them. Be careful what you tell them!
To start, check out the new Socials in the Friendly and Mean categories. Your Sim can try to convince others to make certain life changes and, vice versa, your Sim’s friends can ask their opinion on pursuing life changes.
Two (yes, two!) new Aspirations complement the stories you will tell. Be the Neighbourhood Confidante if you want all the chisme, I mean, if your Sims aspire to be a helpful and positive presence in the lives of Neighbour Sims. They will be able to earn a new Confidante reward trait, which increases the chance of conversations being pleasant and not at all awkward.
But if your Sims are a bit more… deviant, your Sims can aspire to be a Villainous Valentine who wants to destroy the love lives of all Sims, including their own. What can I say, we love chaos over here.
Sims that walk this deviant path will earn the new Twisted Heart trait, which makes all Sad and Embarrassed moodlets decay faster and provides a little bonus social when performing Mean or Mischief socials. They will be heartbreakers, dream breakers, and love takers!
For more detailed information on Neighbourhood Stories, check out Nate’s blog.
Logitech G LIGHTSYNC
If you use Logitech G LIGHTSYNC-enabled Mice, Keyboards, or Headsets on Windows PC, you can now experience The Sims 4 in an even more immersive experience. You can enable and disable The Sims 4 lighting scheme in-game by going to Game Options > Other and toggle the Enable Keyboard Dynamic Lighting option.
Last but certainly not least…
Is your game filling with empty households? We made a fix to clear the empty Households when loading the game.
The Go Sledding Activity club icon has been added.
Does your Sim desire to be a Self Care Specialist, but they are having trouble managing to keep regular clients so they never achieve this goal? It should be resolved now, so go get it, get it, get it.
Hereee we areeee… born to be Sims! They are the royalty of the Unnnniverrrseee. They are immortal, your Sims have inside the Immortality Potion. They have no rival, no other Sim can be their equal… now that the potion works!
We adjusted the pay for Interior Designers in their higher levels. I, personally, did not see an issue with this, Interior Designers need to get their coin, but we recognized it was maybe a bit too much compared to other levels in the same career path.
Just when you thought Kleptomaniac Sims had met their match, alas no – they really had to go for that Kid’s Tent. What can you do? We fixed the issue that on Attempt to Swipe the tent would not disappear from the lot and not be in the Sim’s Inventory… in any inventory. So with this fix you will see your swiped tents in the Household Inventory.
Sims with autonomy ON will now be able to Knit when they are not having fun. Sims just want to have fun.
Those adorable – but filthy – Dust Bunnies were at it again! Maids didn’t have the heart to bust the dust completely. We told them it was ok to do so as no real bunnies are being harmed – just dust ones – and now they should be busting the dust entirely.
Antoinette is a recovering journalist. She’s a multi SAB Sports Journalist of the Year Award winner and thinks it’s strange writing about herself in the third person. Unless she’s playing as herself in The Sims.
