The Sims 4 News August 2019 – Patch Update for PC and MAC



With a new pack on the horizon, there’s always a new patch around the corner. The Sims 4 are updating PC and Mac with some funky features to keep your photographs looking fresh.


The main update to the game allows us to move the photo frames to surfaces, such as counters, desks, end tables, etc. The sims team first teased this back in the StrangerVille video, and finally, it is in our games. One of my favourite things to do is read the patch notes because The Sims 4 team love to poke fun of their bugs.


Here are a few of my favourites from this month’s update:

“Sims can no longer Serenade other Sims through a wall.”

“Walls will now show in photographs taken in basements without stairs. Why you may have a basement without stairs is none of our business.”

“The boat at the lighthouse in Brindleton Bay now has a “travel with…” interaction, because the boat was lonely and wanted to travel with you.”


Luckily enough, we also have some additions to the “Off the Grid” trait which was added in The Sims 4 Island Living Game Pack. it’s good to see that they are constantly updating, adding and upgrading things in The Sims.


And don’t forget! The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack will have a worldwide release for tomorrow (our 14th of August).
