Friday Highlights for June 22nd are here! Head over here to check them out!
JUNE 19 - It's Patch Day for The Sims 4 on PC/MAC Patch notes here.

Console will not have photography


Sim Guru Duke has confirmed that that game will not be including photography as base game dlc like it has just unlocked with the pc version.
We will not have it at launch. Once PC finishes we can start work on bringing changes across to console. We will bring those updates though]

    As far as I can see, there are a lot of issues with the new patch, who are not related to CC/Mods. So I hope, it will be fixed, when it comes to the console. But of course I would lie, if I would say I'm not impatient :p
    Just hope, they work fast.... o:)
    Until then, I will concentrate on the build mode.

    Im still suprised at the fact they made an ep skill into a basegame skill. How random :smile:

    They presumably did it because a future pack will require photography as a skill whether you have GTW or not.

    Also, don't we all want to take photos of our pets and paint them?
    "I'm not saying Stuff Packs thrill me to my wretched, rotting core. I'm just saying that we only get one expansion pack a year because Devs only have one pair of hands. You want to buy more half-finished packs like Get To Work? Do you?"

    I’m not surprised photography is now base game. It makes sense when you consider cats and dogs give people the option to simstsgram pet and would be odd to have the ability to take pics of your pets but not your sims if you didn’t have GTW.

    That will probably be in the First Patch for the console whenever it comes out. I suspect December.

    It will be in the console before long just not at launch.

    Yes.

    Now take pics together under friendly will be in the base game but not were they take a picture together with the phone or camera. The one under friendly you can't hang the pics. The ones that will be added later you click on the camera you buy or you can go into your phone. Those will let you hang them up.

    That’s what I said in my original post.

    I haven't touched the Sims in like a month. Them adding Dine out and hopefully soon the photography skill, might get me interested again. Is there a pack or expansion that lets you do photography as a career? Would be even better if we could design a studio and what not

    The Get to Work expansion adds the photography skill and the photography studio object. Sadly though it’s not a career.

    I watched some youtube videos on it. Really hope this is added soon. As a professional photographer, nothing I want more in this game ha. I'd love to build a studio, have gallery parties etc

    Well don't get me wrong, the option to take pictures on cell phones has been added to the pc base game and Sim guru Duke has said the console will get it eventually? Maybe once the pc has finished?

    I do like the photography skill on the pc version.

    Yes, but the photo studio is still exclusive to GTW. (thankfully)

    Yeah I'm annoyed at the fact console users can't even do cell phone pictures. Hopefully soon

    There isn't one as far as I know as we don't yet have the photography skill. If you've seen one then I don't know.
