    The Sims 4 patch reminds Sims they don’t want to have sex with family members

    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:

  • Sims with a short or long Lifespan no longer become younger or age dramatically when leaving Create a Sim.
  • The “Ask to be Girlfriend/Boyfriend” Want now targets appropriate Sims.
  • Adult Sims no longer tag teens in flirtatious Social Bunny posts.
  • All available Sims now can be selected for travel even if they are currently not on the current lot.
  • 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
