In preparation of The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff pack, which will release Tuesday August 13th, the game had another update.

Photography

The Sims 4 Moschino is all about fashion and will include a new Fashion Photography freelance career. To prepare the game for that, they added some things to base game as well.

There are new colour swatches added to the base game frame, as well as new features. Like being able to change an excisting picture from portrait to landscape and back.
Adding a frame, or changing the colour, can now be done in live mode, instead of having to go to build mode. And, we finally have tabletop picture frames! Just drag them on to a surface.

A downside to the table top picture frames, is that they can’t be rotated using ALT. So there are only a few set rotations available on a surface.
And medium & large frames won’t go up on shelves.

Loading screen

With the rebranding of The Sims 4, the new logo and art work, the loading screen was updated as well. This caused many people eye strain and it was a high request that it would be changed again.
In this update the loading screen has a darker, less saturated blue as background of the loading screen. Hopefully this will be better for most people.

Cheats

There has been a change to the cheat code bar as well. When you called up the cheat code bar, there would just be a white field where you could type in the cheats on the top left side of the screen. This didn’t do anything to your game (aside from what ever cheat code you are putting in of course).
When you bring up the cheat code bar now, the game will get a blue shade over it, and the game will pause, get inactive. You can’t click anything other than the bar either.
