Each title in the Sims franchise has received updates to fix unusual issues since the first sequel to the 2000s, and that's no different with The Sims 4. Several big bugs plaguing The Sims 4 have been identified by the community, and some persistent ones have been fixed by developers at EA.
The Sims has confirmed that several issues were resolved in update 1.90, including one that resulted in significant age variations for some Sims and another that caused questionable romance options. Many base game and expansion issues have been addressed with the August patch, but others may not continue to plague players.
The Sims 4's major bug fixes are now being addressed to appropriate Sims, adult Sims will no longer flirt with teens in Social Bunny posts, and Sims with shorter or longer Lifespans will not suddenly age or age when leaving the Create a Sim menu.
The Sims 4 Get Famous expansion adds a fame meter to several Sims, and there will no longer be a bug that occasionally shows a Sim without fame having a level of it in the past. The recent update opens it up and allows Sims to proceed freely.
Many The Sims 4 fans have expressed their gratitude to EA, but others have brought up additional difficulties that hinder their gaming experience, such as a UI that can be hidden through the The Sims 4 menu, error codes from failing to launch the game, and sudden sluggishness caused by the game pausing and resuming independently of a player's input.
The Sims 4 is now available on Mac, PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
