Sims 4 glitch: The latest update

The newly released patch for The Sims 4 was released ahead of the game’s new Eco Lifestyle expansion pack and includes numerous new features including ladders which appear to have their own fun glitches, a repo person NPC for the base game, and itemised bills.

THE SIMS 4: WHAT ARE THE GLITCHES?

The new recruits don’t appear to be very good at firefighting, with some turning up to just stand and watch the fires that they were supposed to put out. Players also found their firefighters taking a break from work to dance together.

Unfortunately, some of the bugs introduced by the patch are a little more serious than others. Users have reported that their existing saves are crashing, putting hours of gameplay progress at risk.

THE SUPPORT TEAM IS INVESTIGATING THE ISSUES

A member of the game’s support team has said that the team is aware of the reports and that they are currently investigating the issues. Updates are also expected for much of the custom content and mods that are broken as a result of the patch. A thread over on The Sims forums is tracking the update progress.

If you want the new content without having to risk your saves then the advice seems to be to remove any fan made mods, custom content which is a frequent source of bugs and glitches and backup your save files before you install the new patch.

It’s not surprising that a patch is causing issues for a six-year-old game with a huge vibrant modding community and dozens of official add-ons.

Hopefully Maxis and EA can get these Sims in order before they burn the whole house to the ground.
