    Sul Sul Simmers!

    Welcome to this month’s Laundry List, where we share the top community concerns we’re currently investigating and aim to resolve in an upcoming patch.

    To stay on track with the goal stated in our previous Laundry List, the team continues to dedicate their time to prioritizing more fixes to include in each update. This is our second release in this series, with the next scheduled for roughly 2 months from now. This time, we are tackling over 60 issues to make for a better gameplay experience.

    As always, the list below is just a top list, and there are more topics that we saw reported by players that are not listed here but may still be in the process of being solved. Some topics can be tricky and require an extended investigation on our end, so even though we are actively reviewing, it’s not a guarantee that we’ll have an immediate fix for it in the upcoming patch.

    This list is primarily generated by leveraging the player reports via Answers HQ. Thank you to everyone who continues to help our work of improving the user experience via their reports.

    Wow, some fantastic fixes: toddler reward traits, Finchwick Fair, better eating in restaurants, changing to desktop with DX11. I can't wait for that patch!

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa! That's a lot of bug fixes!

    That's a great thing to see! Plus they are adding a new interaction so that people aren't locked out of completing an aspiration due to bugs or unluck, which is fantastic.

    I am still going to remind the issues of Death Flower scented flower arrangements curing Servos, some parties being unable to be thrown at community space sub-types, and dormant werewolves having werewolf-vampire hybrids... But this list is fantastic regardless.

    Very good.

    And a coursemate even joked that I'll have to join Maxis just to fix these bugs and then quit... :D

    Actually, I am not ready to fix bugs. I need more experience.

    Great list. I will finally be able to abandon some of my mods then (toddler trait fix, eat at restaurants, outdoor pool fix, call off wedding, sit at weddings, ...) or at least make them smaller if they cover more than the EA fix.

    That is a long and amazing list of bug fixes! Off topic but I wish mermaids would get a refresh one day, I had a dream about it they were adding mermaids to base game because Sims 4 was getting a new Ocean Living type EP…hmm🤔

    Did I miss it on the list or is it not there?... doors in apartments, dorms etc not dropping with the walls. I was really hoping for a fix on that.

    I'm especially happy that the fix for random sims interrupting dates is coming to the base game after all, and is not something we have to pay $40 for :)

    :/ One CRITICAL flaw not in the The List. The Super Run, for both Vampyra and Werewolf, works in reverse, instead super speeding on World, only works in living lot. Already address the issues over a year now. Still not in the list. This flaw not only effect simming directly also immersion breaking. Mage is only playable right now.
