The new Seasons expansion has greatly changed the way gardening works in The Sims 4. Fertilizing plants seems to be much more important now, and there are many more seed packets available in the new “Gardening” category in buy mode, based on your Sim’s gardening skill. At this time, however, if you have a Sim with pre-existing gardening skill, the packets will not automatically unlock. A Sim in the household has to achieve the appropriate gardening skill after the pack is installed to unlock the seed packets. Hopefully this...read more

City Living includes three new careers: Politician, Critic, and Social Media. It also brings some new functionality to all three careers, although existing careers are unchanged. Common features: All three careers have an optional initial “Work From Home” assignment that is given before your Sim’s first day. They seem to be logical assignments to set your Sim up for success; the Social Media assignment is to create a social media profile, for example. These initial work from home assigments are very much worth taking, as they not only are...read more

When you first start a game in The Sims 4, you have to go through the tutorials. And you get them with each new save game you start.
A while back we wrote a tutorial to turn off these tutorials. This was a bit of a hasstle, and you still had to go through the tutorials at least once, or when you reinstall the game.
The latest update of Origin comes with a great new update for The Sims 4! You can change the language of The Sims 4 easily without having to reinstall the entire game and change your Origin language.

Lots of users have been reporting a bug in The Sims 4 which, after updates, puts “codes” all over the game where there should be some nice sensible words. You might see things like *** BE97AC03*** all over your game – people with a passing familiarity with programming will probably recognise them as hex strings. If you’re experiencing this bug, there are two ways to fix it, one is to uninstall and reinstall your game – this obviously can take a lot of time depending on the speed of your Internet connection.
