The Sims 4 High School Years expansion arrived at the end of July, but like the educational system itself the new pack was kind of a mess. Even players who didn’t buy the expansion felt the aftermath because the pack updated the base game with new features and brought with it a host of bugs. This included one that rapidly aged Sims and another that sometimes made family members interested in… well, dating each other.
Nearly as creepy was a bug in the Social Bunny app added in the expansion, which is like an in-game version of Twitter. Sims can post flirty messages to the app and tag other Sims they’re crushing on. But apparently, a bug meant adult Sims were able to tag teen Sims in flirty messages, too. Gross.
EA quickly assured players it would look into the bugs, and a patch (opens in new tab) has now been deployed that will hopefully clear up all those icky problems. According to EA, the following bugs have been fixed in The Sims 4 base game:
Another fix was made specifically for the High School Years pack. “Sims now can walk through the I Was a Teenage Garbage Artist pile of clutter,” says EA. I have no idea what that means, but it sounds like some sort of obstruction won’t block Sims’ paths anymore.
And in the Get Famous expansion, a bug was letting non-famous Sims (including pets) appear to be famous. That’s also been fixed… but why? I feel like a famous cat isn’t a bad thing at all to have in a game. After all, cats are the best.
