Sims 4 update to the December update is now released on Origin. [CLOSED]

Post by Misfit203 on Tue 04 Dec 2018, 21:49



Patch Notes:

Update: 12/20/18 - PC 1.48.94.1020 / Mac 1.48.94.1220

Hey Simmers,

A quick note for a couple of hot issues.

   You should now be able to once again, use speed controls when in cinematic camera (aka tab camera).
   You should now be able to once again have your Sim travel without causing them to become corrupted because they did not get to know Lin-Z.
   You should now be able to once again dance the Samba, assuming you previously knew the Samba.


-SimGuruGnome

   Update: 12/18/18 –  PC 1.48.90.1020 / Mac 1.48.90.1220

   Hey Simmers!

   It’s cold out there… wait, that’s a Groundhog Day intro. Also, it’s pretty “northern” stereotypical… my apologies. So, it’s a month out there in which some experience a cold season at this time of the cycle in which we revolve (or not) around the glowing ball in the sky, and in which festivities may or may not be observed, and others experience a warmer season, in which similar, or non-similar observances may be made. And I wish you an emotional response relevant to your desire.

   With that said…

   What’s New?

   We have added MORE to the Holiday Pack!

   More home things…

       Some new light sources!
           2×1 Ceiling light
           Mason jar candles
           A log display… with candles
       Some new decoratives!
           Ceiling snowflake décor
           Mason jar décor
           Bough wall hanging
           Wood carving wall hanging
           A fireplace façade (for decorative purposes only)
       A new Picnic table

   And more clothing things…

       A sweater top for kids
       A female full body outfit
       Female pants
       A female hair
       A male sweater
       A male hair
       Slippers for male and female
       Yeti costume, unless you choose brown, then it’s a Bigfoot costume
           Not that I’ve ever seen Bigfoot…
               And I apologize if you are a Big Foot who happens to play The Sims. Hopefully you see a resemblance.

   All Holiday pack objects can be found easily in the catalog by using the Holiday Pack filter, in the filter sort options.

   Remember, if you have not yet downloaded the Holiday Pack, click on the Holiday Pack icon from the Main Menu! And if you have already downloaded the pack previously, you don’t need to do anything, you have the updates now!

   …assuming you are reading this after you launched The Sims, and finished downloading the update. If not, then you have them then!

   In addition to the Holiday content, there are few other new bits…

       A female hoodie, sweater, and crop top are new in Create a Sim
       Two new recipes for your Sims to cook
           Winter Cake
           Crown Roast
       And the Lin-Z Smart Speaker!
           Play music, order a pizza, play trivia, be yelled at… all with the touch of… with the call of the wild… with just a…
               You have to just talk to it. Your Sim talks to It.
                   Please don’t start talking to your computer.
                       But if you already do, that’s ok, there’s nothing wrong with that. Just don’t name your computer Shodan.
                   Make friends with your new AI overlord and learn its secrets! Or don’t. It’ll remember

   First person camera smoothing updates. We got some feedback about the mode being a bit sickness-inducing (especially if you watch the announce stream and saw the Sim on the swing… or the rock clim… ahm, ur okay, I’m… let’s move on).

   “Roll” has been disabled in First Person Camera mode when you are using the Sims 4 camera settings (you can find your chosen option in the Camera Controls menu in the upper right corner of the screen). Roll is essentially side to side movement along a curve, and the primary motivator of discomfort.

   If you are a Sims 3 Camera user, and you want the smoother camera, you can use the cheat “camera.fpc.simple on” to switch to Sims 4 camera while in First Person Camera mode. And of course, to turn it off “camera.fpc.simple off”.

   In addition players can use the cheat “camera.fpc.smoothing off/low/medium/high” to fine-tune their experience.

   That’s that for the new, on to the old.

   General Issues

       The tutorial has been updated with some new tips in order to assist our new players with the basics of playing The Sims!
       Style Influencer stay at home tasks now register as complete, when completed.
       You can now hire a gardener if you have plants on your lot for your gardener to garden, regardless of your garden’s gardening needs.
           Previously, if your garden was not in need, you were being incorrectly informed that you didn’t have a garden.
       The brick01GEN wall pattern has a new name.
       Teen interaction Mess Around should no longer duplicate itself in the interaction menu for each target location for said mess around.
       Townie Sims are no longer glaring at each other as they pass by on the streets.
       Sims have taken social etiquette classes, and now understand that one does not need to constantly mix drinks when hosting a party.
           Does the concept of the entire Sims populace taking classes in social etiquette give you an Orwellian chill?
       The tutorial’s chef aspiration no longer starts your Sim with the Snob, Foodie, and Glutton traits, but instead the Slob, Perfectionist, and Foodie traits.
           The former due to a text error.
           The later due to the two being incompatible.
       First Person Camera will no longer show the inside of the Sim’s head when using Intel Integrated Graphics.
           I told my mom that, she called my grandma, and said she was worried about me.
       Ceilings should no longer look darkened, but instead lighting should be more prevalent in comparison to the location of lights in a room.
       The Gardener Career now provides raises when the profession is maxed.
       The With Pets, Dogs, or Cats Gallery filter now works, and will no longer break your other filters from functioning.
       Z/X and -/+ shortcut keys will now adjust FOV in first person camera mode.
       Exiting first person camera will no longer cause a Sims head to become stuck facing one direction.
           Many others however are still stuck facing One Direction.
       If you have enough traits to fill the Simology panel beyond the window height allowed by your monitors resolution, you will no longer find yourself unable to interact with the Simology panel.
           Also, your Sim is amazingly complex.
       So, this issue has been addressed (see next bullet). However, the fix is easier to understand than the issue… but here it is as it was communicated to me:
           Visiting a household with locks set using another household, resets the locks on returning control to the household with the locks
           If that was not clear, just go with the fix:
               Doors stay locked.

   Non-specific pack issue

       Randomly generated neighborhood Sims should no longer shop exclusively within the City Living and Vampires Create-a-Sim catalogs, and are more likely to have expanded their clothing opportunities to all packs you have available for them.

   Cats & Dogs

       Cats will no longer become stuck on top of surfaces after being lectured about jumping on surfaces.
       Cat Whiskers now appear with the proper color relevant to the color chosen in Create-a-Sim.

   Seasons

       Setting the thermostat to cold when it’s hot out, or hot when it’s cold out, will no longer add a 1.5-5x modifier to your bills.

   Get Famous

       Take Selfie interaction will now help relieve the Separation Anxiety tense buff that is a result of the Phone Fanatic quirk.
       The More Views Video Station can now be cloned with the Eyedropper tool.
           In case you wanted more More Views.
       Sleeping Pod interaction Less Needy Dreams, has been changed to Social Dreams.
       The More Views Video Station memory upgrade tooltip will no longer lie to you.
       The Drama King buff received from watching a Sim perform the Perform Dramatic Monologue interaction will now tell you that it is from watching a Sim perform the Perform Dramatic Monologue interaction.
       Moving an in use Music Production Station will no longer cause the music to become stuck on.
       The Lifestyle Brand interaction now works.
       Celebrity Sims set to the normal walk style, should now maintain their walk style setting.
       Married celebrity Sims will no longer react in disgust towards one another.
           Unless there is reason to.
               Like cutting your toenails in bed.
                   I mean, who does that?!

   Spa Day

       Sims giving a hand massage, will no longer contort in an excruciatingly painful manner during the massage.

   Vampires

       The Parts to Copy filter, for vampires in Create-a-Sim, should now actually show what parts you can copy.

   Parenthood

       REJOICE! Children can once again play on the monkey bars without the compelling need to halt their monkey bar activities to make a mess. Yes, that’s right Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Player, children are free! Free to play! Free to climb, swing, and do whatever it is that children do on the monkey bars. The draw, the compulsion, the absolute need to end their activity to make a mess has finally come to a close. So rejoice! And let your kids climb, until they can climb no more.

   Ok, let’s see, it’s been awhile since I’ve done this, so let me just go through my checklist.

       Greeting, uh yep, check.
       The What’s New section, check.
       Various issue commentary, unnecessary expository, overuse of ellipses, random grammar atrocities, run on sentences…, check, check, and… um, check.
       References to old and outdated entertainment media, check.
       Sign off, and holiday wishes, not yet, but shortly.

   Looks like everything is good to go!

   Happy Holidays!

I just hope they don't change anything and this comes out as an update. Meaning they will modify files in "Delta\FP01" like they always do, not in "FP01".

being that these are additions to the holiday pack, im guessing we will know this week if not get it this week. since the holidays are so close upon us, i can't see them waiting much longer. would kinda defeat the purpose of them being holiday items if nobody really has time to use them before the holidays. thats just my opinion.

Not sure if Yeti's are supposed to look like that, but given the example screenshot above, the head does feel somewhat out of proportion compared to the (lower) torso...? In my humble aesthetic-related opinion.

Game Breaker After New Patch 1.48.90.1020.

Post by grieralexander on Thu 20 Dec 2018, 22:34

There is a GAME BREAKING BUG surrounding the Lin-Z speaker object that came in the holiday update. It is causing travelling bugs and blocking people from entering their saves, thus destroying the save. 
Please ‘Me Too’ the post on AHQ. 
If you have the object on your lots then delete them, save and exit, and delete your LocalThumbCache.package in /Sims 4. DO NOT REPLACE THE OBJECT. We cannot guarantee that this will work and fix the issue but it is reportedly working for some people. 

From crinrict, via discord…

The main problem are visitors atm. They seem to form some kind of pseudo relationship with LinZ as soon as they enter the lot/room. If you delete LinZ when that has already happened, those Sims will be borked and I haven’t found a way to save those. If you didn’t have any visitors, make sure all your Sims in the household have a relationship you can see in the panel, before deleting it. If you delete it and one or more SIms have a pseudo-relationship, the lot becomes unloadable. Same happens if you move it to the household inventory

All I can say is this here.




I wonder if they will actually release another "hotfix" for just that item, or if they'll wait a little before the next patch...thanks for sharing the news!

@The_gh0stm4n Their official site has been swarmed and this error code is what people are getting: Error Code:102:9285f331:ba9bffb8 It is recommended that you relaunch the game.

As far as I've been able to read at the forums this device is standard in some lots like clubs; so, if you visit the club you run a high risk of bugging your game. My best advice is that before you start your game, go into World Edit mod and check your clubs and public places for this device and delete it. As for the answers the Gurus are given up 'til know They are asking People to send them their saves.

As @the_gh0stm4n predicted there is a Hot fix already for the Gamebreaker Lin-Z ! For those of us that use the G4TW Sims 4 remember to wait until is made available here before trying to attemp to install it from EA 1.48.94 and turn automatic update off I tip my fedora.

Copy the Game folder from your install folder The Sims 4 to your desktop
Update via ZLOrigin
From the new game folder of ZLOrigin copy the file Default to your Game\Bin folder on your desktop
Delete the Game folder that was created by ZLOrigin
Copy the Game folder from your desltop back to your install folder of the Sims 4.

It's not "bulletproof" but it does the trick (at least in my game)






Gatekeeper Edit: for more Support, please search or open a new topic under "The Sims 4 Support (PC)"; I will close this topic here now.
