Hey Simmers,

Happy New Year!

I always feel a little wrung out after a long holiday break. Like I was just hanging around, tossed on the pile of things left undone, and I need a vacation from my vacation, just to freshen up, clean the lint from my eyes. Maybe put a little spin in my step, to help keep me from tumbling about. But let’s not sort through these feelings now. Just fold those up for another time. We have a new pack around the corner, and among the things on our laundry list…

…we cleaned up some stuff!

General Issues

The Computer Hard Drive career reward will now give a focused décor buff when enabling its emotional aura.
The Pile of Discarded Food that results when a toddler throws their food on the ground after eating will no longer be called “Debug”, but instead will be called a “Pile of Discarded Food” when selected in Build Mode.
The Tell Funny Story to Toddler whim is now successfully fulfillable.
They get it now.
You will now be given enough time to take care of your neglected baby after the warning “you neglected your baby” notification appears.
Earbuds and Holiday Crackers are no longer available to purchase from a computer while the power is out.
We fixed the coloring of the yfHair_EF06PonytailStraightBangs_DirtyBlonde asset to match other dirty blonde hairs.

What do you call a solar powered clothes dryer? A clothesline.

Get to Work

Sims will no longer receive an uncomfortable buff from sleeping on The Solitary Sleeper bed.

Cool Kitchen Stuff

Picking Up a Serving from a bowl of ice cream should no longer cause the ice cream to appear and behave as the Amarena Gelato flavor, but instead as the flavor intended by the bowls contents.

Movie Hangout Stuff

Sims with the Fresh Chef trait can now make popcorn that will never spoil!
I’d fill my whole house with popcorn… never spoils popcorn everywhere… just everywhere. With that kind of real genius, I wouldn’t want to rule the world… no fears, no tears… just popcorn.

Romantic Garden Stuff

Sims can now nap on the Fountain of Gluteus Maximus.
I tend to nap on my gluteus maximus already.

What do you call a solar powered washer? If you said your mom, shame on you!

Backyard Stuff

Sims instructed to slide on a slippy slide should no longer quit unexpectedly after a single slide.

Vintage Glamour Stuff

Food prepared by butlers can now be live dragged into inventories.

Bowling Night Stuff

We have updated various build object tooltips to properly indicate their quality, comfort, and skill modification levels.

Fitness Stuff

Sims should no longer get in and out of bed continuously when they attempt to sleep while wearing the earbuds.
What’s that? Honey, did you hear that? Someone is outside singing… it sounds like In Your Eyes… no, probably not… let me get back to… I’ll just sleep… wait, was that Iggy?
Lullabies Radio, Easy Listening, and Jazz stations are available to turn on when using earbuds.

Best of luck in your attempts to keep things clean, in a world of ever growing piles of dirty laundry. May your socks always find a match, your laundry never be damp, because it’s less work to dry than it is to fold, and your lint catcher be ever vigilant.

Heh, looks like even they're getting tired of their embarrassing attempts at humor; this one prob had the fewest "jokes" out of any of the recent patch notes. I dig it. Hopefully the trend catches on.

Thanks for posting this btw.

I was so excited when I saw the patch notes, but it doesn't seem like anything has actually been fixed. :/

I liked the joke about your mom

Unfortunately, around 90% of the bugs never actually get officially reported, simply because not enough people get involved.

The Official bug list is Here

This is where we are supposed to post and complain about something that isn't right, and this must be proven using a vanilla game and can take a quite a lot of time to get your word heard.

I patched my game yesterday and played after. They had a home party, and I unticked the prestige box. No one invited ever turned up, one of the invited one's called and asked if he could come over, and while the party was on everyone wanted to stand in the bar even though I hired a mixologist.

I can't remember it ever being this bad before. Is it only the prestige box doing this? I haven't ticked that box before.
