Patch? And Free Update Content?

Are we expecting a patch this month? Just came on to check if there is one, and are we expecting a free content patch this month (March)?

    We get at least one patch every month. Especially if there's a pack being released. According to some sources, the upcoming Bowling pack is supposed to be announced and released within the next couple weeks, so we'll probably get a patch before then.

    In a couple of weeks it will be April. :) Two weeks from today is March 31st.

    I'm crossing my fingers for next week. I swear though, I'm going to be a little salty if there are very few bug fixes listed. TS4 sorely needs a bug squashing.

    Agree, there is a whole lot wrong on top of performance issues for many.

    My predictions are that we get the Bowling Night teaser on Monday (20th) and then the announcement trailer and the patch on the 21st and then the SP on the 28th.

    When do we usually get patches since I have noticed a few times we have actually gotten one on a Friday.

    They might be releasing it next Friday. Honestly I never really pay attention to when we get patches cause they seem to change the day so many times I can't keep track. I just feel like next week we'll get a patch in preparation for Bowling Night.

    I hope so. Need a lot of bug fixes before they add more content.

    imo I think it's gonna be March 28 cuz right now EA's big money maker series is about to pop out their newest cash baby so it'd make a lot more sense for them to wait and focus on the release of the next SP until the week after.

    While I feel like they should've released at least some patches that fix some of the issues we've been having a little earlier, whatever works as long as it gets done.

    I was just playing the game, and a notification (the one we get when playing sims) came up saying "online will shut down in 10 minutes for maintenance" then when it popped up again, it said 5 minutes, so I logged out.

    My Sim just got engaged so I didn't want to chance loosing anything.

    Even though its maintenance, is it the Gallery?

    I think it'll be at least a week. I'm not expecting any new content, except maybe a new cas item promoting EA's new game...

    It will just be to do with the gallery. It happens fairly often.

    Ok, thanks for letting me know. I was hoping for a patch *sigh*

    Can we get something this time I will actually like and use because the gender patch has gone haywire and I see male sims in dresses and bathing suits in CAS I completely disabled the tragic clown from ever setting foot in my neighborhoods and I kind of wish I had a choice over toddlers because I personally hate them even though my avy shows one. :joy:

    Most likely Next Week Thursday in prep for Bowling Night on the 28th.

    From what I have noticed is that we generally get a patch towards the beginning of the month. Within the first two weeks. Unless a new pack is coming out. Then we will get one within the week prior to the new pack.

    I'm hoping we get body peircings and in bed animations with this patch. I wouldn't be suprised though if we get urinals and toilet stalls in this patch. I think that will be patched into the base game at some point. If not now later.

    I'm sure we will get more animations in the bed. Because i saw, my sims leaving in the bed and she was in position ''relax'' like TS3.

    I hope so but this has been in the gamefile since the base game.

    Fascinating ... I almost never see crossdressing in my game ... and in CAS the male/female filter is on per default

    I just hope the patch comes soon. I'm having the same bugs since the toddlers update, and I feel like I can't deal with them any longer.
    If this next patch doesn't fix them I'll probably flip a table o:)

    I like how things have gotten so bad that people are hyped for an actual friggin' patch. The last patch that fixed a sizeable amount of bugs had to be in December or November...
