  1. How do. I get the holiday pack. It says I have to buy but it’s free and so
    I tried getting it but it wouldn’t let me grit the buy button. I’m so
    confused ._.

    one video), go to *

    even though im 11 and don’t have the Sims 4 yet….
    but come faster 13th birthday
    Even though im sure Sims 5 will be out by then XD im so funny

  4. HERE ARE THE PATCH NOTES FROM THE SIMS WEBSITE!!: Hey Simmers!

    Happy Holidays, Decemberings, and other end of the year tidings! The office
    illnesses have come and gone (for me) and things are looking up for a
    festive year end. And just for you, we have an update filled with new
    careers, holiday goodies, Gallery fun-ness, some cheats, a gnome on the go,
    a few holiday tunes, interface updates, and a bug or two squashed!

    As this is a bit long on the details, and in an effort to keep it brief,
    I’ll cut my monologue short. So, without further ado, on with the datums!

    The Big NEW
    Business Career
    Climb the corporate ladder, choosing between Angel Investor or Business
    Tycoon
    New Career Outfits
    New Reward Objects and Interactions
    New Career Reward Rooms
    Athletic Career
    Kick, punch, and swing your way through the Athletic career, choosing
    between Hall of Famer or Mr./Ms. Solar System
    New Career Outfits (did someone say Llamacorn mascot outfit?)
    New Reward Objects and Interactions
    New Career Reward Rooms
    Paid Time Off (PTO)
    Sims now accrue PTO by going to work, and can use their PTO to take a paid
    day off without losing work performance
    Sims also want to take time off, and may get tense if they don’t
    Sims will start off with 3 days PTO already accrued, so they can start work
    and immediately take a long weekend to recover.
    Family leave
    Parents can now take paid time off for the birth of their baby
    Moms can take time off during the third trimester. Sorry dads, you have to
    wait until after the birth to take time off
    Family Leave is separate from PTO, and does not affect your PTO balance.
    Thanks to great player feedback, we made some pretty important changes to
    Career and Aspiration objectives. Please take a moment to review your
    Aspirations and Careers, as some of the objectives have possibly changed.
    Our main goals with this update were to:
    Get rid of objectives that were too specific or repetitive
    Fix objectives that were too difficult and/or too big of a jump from
    previous steps (e.g., going from requiring 2 friends to 6 friends)
    The Holiday Celebration Pack is available for you to unlock, completely
    free!
    New Objects, including a wreath, wall decorations, and a grinning holiday
    snowman!
    Some new Holiday Sweaters for your Sims (including winner of the fan voted
    sweater, #4)!
    Here are the instructions for how to get your Holiday Celebration Pack:
    The Holiday Celebration Pack can be unlocked by logging into Origin and
    launching The Sims 4.
    Banners within the main menu of The Sims 4 and in The Gallery will show the
    option to redeem the “Holiday Celebration Pack”.
    Click on the respective banner to surface an in-game pop up that will place
    the Holiday Celebration Pack in your shopping cart.
    No payment information will be required to check out.
    You will then be directed to an order confirmation page. Click the “Close”
    button.
    After closing, you will receive a notification that your content is
    preparing for download. Click the “OK” button.
    Once the download is complete, a notification will inform you that the
    Holiday Celebration Pack has been successfully installed.
    You will need to restart The Sims 4 in order to see content from the
    Holiday Celebration Pack in your game.
    Alternatively, you can also redeem the Holiday Celebration Pack via
    Origin.com [insert link]. Simply follow the instructions to download and
    install the pack into your game.

    The Not Quite as Big New
    A new Holiday themed speaker can be found in the Audio sort of Build mode,
    with all new Winter Holiday songs!
    The Strictly Business Gnome is ready for action! Maybe he’s late for an
    important business meeting, or maybe he’s just left the bank with an
    unexpected withdrawal. Only he knows!
    When your Sims get grungy from low hygiene, they will now look the part!
    Grunge is in, well in the 90s it was, so like 15 years ago, practically
    yesterday.
    Sims can now EAT the fruits and veggies they harvest from Gardening!
    Warning! Sims can now die at venues! You have been warned… We didn’t
    increase the chance of death or anything like that, it’s just you can die
    now. So it’s not so much a warning, as a public service announcement.
    Announcement served.
    New colors have been added to several existing doors, windows, and roof
    trims.

    The Gallery New
    Gallery Build Improvements: We’ve made it easier than ever to grab rooms
    from the Gallery by placing a big ol’ button in the Saved Rooms sort. We’ve
    also re-arranged the tabs to be friendlier. They were pretty friendly
    before but now they are downright social.
    Gallery in CAS: We’ve integrated the Gallery into your Create a Sim
    experience in two ways.
    The first is a Randomize button at the center bottom of the screen. Click
    the button to randomly pull in new Sims from the Gallery without leaving
    CAS!
    Secondly, when creating new family members, you have the button right there
    to look for them in the Gallery.
    Objects resized using cheats now preserve their status when uploaded to the
    Gallery.
    Custom Content and Mods will no longer display by default in the Gallery.
    To see them, check the “Include Custom Content” flag in Advanced filters on
    the left.
    Custom Content and Mods uploaded will now be automatically flagged as
    Custom Content.
    You can also mark them as such to help your fellow community members better
    navigate this content.
    Want new neighbors? Simply click on an empty house next door and select
    “Move in Household From Gallery.” You’ll be taken to the Gallery where you
    can pick your new neighbors. Move in a great family or some total weirdo,
    then go visit them seconds later.

    The Cheaty-Face New
    Have you satisfied your Sim today? Whims and Aspirations, both give
    satisfaction! And now, so does this cheat: sims.give_satisfaction_points #!
    Spend time working on whims and aspirations, OR just forget the whole thing
    and cheat your way to victory! (Don’t forget to use testingcheats true
    first).
    Speaking of cheats, well, if these two release notes remain side by side,
    then this will totally make sense, but if they get re-ordered, then this is
    really going to be confusing, but let’s assume they stay side by side. So,
    speaking of cheats, bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement is now available to
    immediately unlock all career rewards! (I tried to get them to add at least
    20 more characters to the cheat title, careerrewardunlockgoodiesforfree,
    but the engineers were afraid we’d overflow a sock, or stack, or something
    like that).
    Set as Head cheat is now actually usable. This was a cheat we shipped with
    base game but required a Sim and Object ID, which oddly, is not accessible.
    This is now a shift click option on the object. Turn on testing cheats,
    select a Sim, shift click on an object and choose Set as Head. Have fun!
    Hint: Sims will still use objects when oddly placed.
    Can you say MOO? The Move Object cheat is now available!
    Use bb.moveobjects to ignore placement rules, and push the limits of your
    home creativity!
    In addition, while holding the object, you can use the “0” key to move an
    object down, and the “9” key to move the object up*. The object doesn’t
    have to be against a wall
    *For those of you that use saved camera positions, we are aware of the
    shortcut key conflict, and are working to fix this. But we felt the up/down
    behavior was just too awesome not to mention it.

    ————————-

    Build / Graphics
    Walls were not appearing correctly in cutaway view if placed near a
    stairway.
    Fixed an issue where setting a non-1st floor door as the Front Door would
    not persist after entering Live Mode and returning to Build.
    The violin will no longer fade at inappropriate distances while the Sim is
    playing it.

    Crash / Performance
    Fixed a crash that could occur if the game was exited while a move in
    sequence was in progress.
    Game will no longer crash when attempting to place a roof nowhere near your
    lot. Um… yea, the roof, drag it really far away from your lot, and then
    click. You won’t crash now.
    Doing edge case-y things has a chance of confusing our codebase. In this
    case, if you, by way of the merge household dialog, completely swap two
    families (basically house swap), you will no longer infinitely load as you
    attempt to return to the game.

    Gameplay / Tuning
    When loading a lot, you will now load into the correct lot for the Sim you
    have chosen, rather than load into their home lot where they may not
    currently be.
    Fixed an issue in which killing a Sim in a 1×1 enclosure was preventing the
    Reaper from completing their task of soul collection, which in turn
    resulted in the Sim remaining married to their living spouses, which in
    turn prevented the living spouse from being able to remarry… yea, well
    you’d be surprised how common this actually is among Sims players.
    NPC Sims leaving an event or job were not returning to their normal attire,
    which resulted in Sims wandering around in their work outfits, sleepwear,
    workout outfits, at inappropriate times. Sims should now appear in more
    appropriate attire for when and where they are.
    Switching between Sims who are on different lots will remember where the
    Sims were when last you left them (more like a modern day drama, as opposed
    to an 80’s sitcom that has no memory of what happened last time), rather
    than stacking up on the sidewalk.
    Fixed an issue where if a plant was on a location other than the ground of
    the 1st floor, it would cause the Sim to wander to a seemingly random spot
    on the lot when requested to weed.
    You no longer need to click on the sign post to fish, just click on the
    area near the fishing spots to begin angling!
    Fireplaces were not starting nearby objects on fire… now should a fire
    erupt, they have a chance to do so. Makes you re-think that stack of books
    on the mantel piece, doesn’t it?
    The chess piece is connected to the chess table, which is connected to the
    chair, which is connected to the Sim. And now there is a tooltip that
    explains this symbiotic relationship if you attempt to play chess at a
    table without a chair. Please be warned, there is currently no tooltip that
    explains why you can’t play chess if there is no Sim.
    Updated the text that explains the benefits of the Premium Prima Ballerina,
    to now say Inspiring Décor: 9, rather than Environment.
    The Astro Model Rocket now allows you to View Focused Work which will give
    the Sim a Centered by Art buff.
    Find a Collectible whims are now 150% more satisfying!
    Find a Collectible whims will now give you 25 satisfaction points instead
    of 10.
    Nah, I’m sticking with – 150% MORE AWESOMER! (feels like there should be an
    explosion here… go turn on something furious or fast, and then reread this)
    Sims can now paint different quality Focused paintings.
    Insane children can now talk to themselves. What? No, I didn’t tell them
    anything, shh.
    If you cancel cooking before the Sim takes the ingredients out of the
    fridge, you will now be refunded the Simoleons and the Ingredients.
    Sims who choose to autonomously solve for social on the computer will
    continue to do so until they reach a satisfactory level (green) or another
    motive becomes more pressing.
    Children have begun to understand the finer points of the Card Table, and
    now get Mental skill while playing cards.
    If your Sim chooses to shower immediately after taking a bubble bath in the
    Double Delight shower tub, they will no longer shower in their clothes.
    You can no longer drag a dirty plate into a broken sink and expect it be
    cleaned… yea, we’re tough on dirt like that.
    Sims will no longer clean up books that were being read to a child by
    another Sim.
    “You were done with that.”
    “No, I…”
    “Not a question!”
    The Honorary SimGuru achievement will now properly award you for playing
    the game for 100 hours. No quitters! Sit down, and achieve! See you in 5
    days.
    Prepared Sims, who have pre-purchased a bassinet, will no longer be
    misinformed that their newly adopted child is at daycare upon returning
    home.
    Sims can now Point Out Constellations all the way until 6am… an extra 4
    hours of “There it is!” “Where?” “Right there next to that really bright
    star.” “The moon?” “No, the star! The moon isn’t even a star!” “Wait, which
    star?” “Oh, for the love of… look RIGHT there!” “What are we looking for?”
    Reading aloud in a spooky voice, and gently shaking your monitor, would
    really help to sell the feeling I’m going for here.
    It’s a dark and spoooooky night (or day, or really the bug can happen at
    any time).
    Your parents have left you all alone (they left to go adopt a child, and
    you, a baby, have found yourself at day care while they are away).
    Time passes, your parents return, but you neeeeever do! Oooooooo! Woooooo!
    … until… NOW, because we fixed the bug. (But are you, really you? Oooooo?
    Wooooo?).
    There is something about saying voodoo that makes you want to say the
    phrase ‘Who do? You do’ immediately after, which says absolutely nothing
    about the bug that was fixed. Which is that you can now live drag the
    Voodoo Doll.
    Nature aspirations (Freelance Botanist, Angling Ace, and The Curator) will
    now count towards the Over-Achiever achievement.
    The Own a Microphone goal for the Joke Star aspiration will now complete
    with all microphones, and not just the default choice.
    The unbreakable Princess Cordelia’s Bathtub will no longer break.
    Sims with the Hilarious trait were finding their jokes falling flat more
    often than they should. We have increased the chance of success
    significantly, though even the funniest of Sims can have an off day.
    It came to our attention, that the Self-Cleaning Upgraded Toilets Union
    (SCUTU) has expressed concern that Sims are not treating them with respect.
    Their grievance is that they are taken for granted. And as such, in a
    silent protest of porcelain solidarity, have refused to allow themselves to
    be cleaned should a Sim vomit within their bowlish confine. We have
    approached this matter with the greatest of care, allowing each side to air
    their issues, and in the end, SCUTU has agreed to keep themselves clean of
    all things foreign and domestic, in exchange for the occasional nod of
    recognition from a nearby Sim.
    Practice Fighting can now be cancelled while in the action queue.
    Sims who are at maximum for a given skill will no longer be able to
    incorrectly build that skill while off lot using the Away Actions.
    Children can now travel to the Forgotten Grotto! One less forgotten.
    Platonic romantic relationships were not allowing the Sims to sleep in the
    same bed… not many of our players ran into this issue.
    Decreased the rate of weight gain by 1/2. However, Sims will still get fat
    at the same rate as before, if they eat when not hungry.
    Sims will no longer autonomously drink from the fridge, which was resulting
    in them getting autonomously fat.
    Sims can now complete the WooHoo! Achievement… so what are you waiting for?
    Get out there and get those Sims achieved!
    The Hidden Bookcase Door unlocked from the Secret Agent career, now allows
    you to knock on it. Which means it is less secret and less hidden by
    roughly 20%.
    Fixed an issue that was initiating relationship decay immediately upon
    travel, leaving our Sims with a yearning to understand the phrase ‘absence
    makes the heart grow fonder,’ as it was most certainly not the case.
    Promised or Engaged to a Sim that dies will now clear their promised and
    engaged bit, so that you don’t have to wait around for their ghost in order
    to find a new love.
    The rate at which objects break has been decreased, and high end objects
    will break even less often than previously.
    Elders will no longer be the primary age group found at the lounge.
    Fitness will now play a role in determining who wins a Fight.
    Farmer Flower and Fruit seed pack will now give you flower and fruit seeds.
    Farmer Veggies and Herb seed pack will now give you veggies and herbs.
    Neither seed pack will give you farmers.
    You can now invite “at work” Sims to your parties.
    Plantain has been added as a collectible in the Gardening section of
    collections.
    Retired Sims will no longer receive two paychecks each day… thieving ol’
    timers!
    Gardening skill interactions Research Gardening, Fertilize, and Splice now
    unlock at earlier levels.
    More drinks are now available to make at level 1 Mixology, including the
    Angry, Flirty, and Focused emotional drinks.
    The chance to find the cowplant while fishing has been increased. Which
    lends credence to the popular phrase, “You can lead a cowplant to water,
    but you can’t make him not offer cake to the first lure that passes by,
    thusly ripping him from the watery depths, only to be unleashed within the
    soils of the Sim filled land, where essence, gloriously effervescent
    essence, awaits their frosting-filled gullets.”
    Successful mischief actions now give 50% more mischief skill!
    Fish stored in the refrigerator will no longer decay as if they were
    sitting on a marble slab, at noon, outside, beneath a blistering mid-summer
    sun.
    Sims will no longer autonomously salvage your TV’s, stereos, and other
    electronics for spare parts.
    Sims will now swim at pools placed at venues.
    Bladder motive will now decrease at a slower rate while Sims are sleeping.
    Ideal mood for Interstellar Smuggler is now Energized.
    Working out at home no longer satisfies the workout at the gym goal of the
    Athletic aspiration, unless you have gone through the effort to convert
    your home into a gym venue, in which case, working out at home will totally
    satisfy this goal and I just lied to you.
    Punching bag now counts as a piece of workout equipment when solving for
    the Bodybuilder aspiration goal.

    UI / Interface Updates
    All Information panels in the bottom right are now viewable for all Sims
    all of the time! Including while your Sim is at work!
    The Career panel has had a face lift, pulling some hidden information out
    of the tooltips, changing the layout, just a little spritz.
    The Collections Panel will no longer rearrange itself every time you open
    it.
    Sims now advertise their age in the Nameplate. No more “are you a teen?”
    mishaps.
    The Phone Menu, jealous of the Career panel’s body work, has also had a
    face lift. A little tuck, tightening, and primping all around.
    Screenshot taking is now available in Create a Sim! Once you have
    everything set up the way you want, hit “C” to take your shot!
    Late for Work icon has been moved so it is now visible in the Sim skewer
    portrait (Yep, we call it a skewer. Go back to Sims 2 and look at it again).
    Filters for the purchase dialog were sometimes confused about which
    purchase dialog was being displayed – seed filters would show when
    purchasing a book and likewise. Fixed this.
    You can now use the mouse wheel to scroll in the Lessons menu. The Lessons
    are found in the ESC menu. It’s the 3 dot icon in the upper right. Where
    the options are…
    The credits scroll bar will no longer fight against your desire to scroll
    with it. The Aspiration panel has been given more prominence in the UI.
    We’ve asked that the Aspirations panel works harder to make it better for
    you to access them (at any hour), and provide a faster and stronger
    presence while doing it.
    The Sims portrait will no longer continue to say your Sim is asleep if you
    cancel their autonomous sleeping action.

    Thank you for all your feedback, keep it coming!
