Well we already know we're getting bug fixes to skin tones but there will obviously also be bug fixes to the game.

    Let’s hope for some eco fixes and maybe the gardening thing too

    I’m disappointed there isn’t at-least 1 screenshot of the skin tones.

    They're probably not finished yet. Nothing to show.

    It's coming out in two weeks, but a bigger one will be out after that.
    They said at least 100 new skin tones (focusing on darker tones) and a slider to make them lighter or darker. Along with sliders for makeup. Then they'll be updating two of the base game hairstyles

    Simsvip posted that picture, it’s not what EA posted in their article. It might not even be what we’re getting

    With the EP presumably scheduled for November and the big skin update scheduled for December, I don't think we'll be getting a huge patch in terms of new stuff. Probably just the improved base skin maps.

    I'm hoping we'll get some tuning updates for certain NAPs (like not stealing required stuff from community lots) and maybe they've tracked down the plants reverting to harvestable bug.

    I'm sure there are other bugs that will be fixed and others that I want to be fixed, but I haven't played as much as I normally do for the past month, because of real-life stuff, so I can't bring anything else to mind.

    They'll be updating two of them in October, then two more (along with the 100 new skin tones, plus skin/makeup sliders) will be in December.

    I'm thinking we'll see a patch sometime in the middle of October and shortly after that an announcement for EP10 for a mid-November release. They'll probably be trying to squash as many of the EL bugs as possible.

    At this point I have very low expectations for patches. It's been 4 months since EL and a lot of patches yet the biggest bugs are still not fixed. They'll just bring in the skin tones and next pack which will make a whole load more bugs to take over. They have a bad habit with just piling more and more in and just ignoring the problems which I don't see changing anytime soon.

    i think cause they put priority on skin tones that any other updates will be pushed to next year. which, good, cause people of color have been demanding this for SIX years now.

    but i still hope for babies, personality overhaul, likes and dislikes, and cars to come in the next few years.

    reality? a couple bug fixes if that.

    I think 2 base game hairstyles are getting updated in October and 2 more in December. Will be interesting to see what the Pre EP Patch in November brings to the game.

    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    Just reread the statement and don’t know how I missed that it will indeed be 4 BG hairstyles updated in total.

    We need so urgent fixes for restaurants, freelancers, NAPs, plants, routing, photography ... But I have lost all hope. Happily playing TS3 again.

    Fantastic features of the game which are unplayable because of the horrendous amount of bugs, makes me angry.

    My only wish is that they will address the bugs with gardening, the ones with NAPs (I don't mind eg. The sharing is caring being bugged but the NAP related actions overriding commanded tasks is such a pain), and the huge issues with toddlers at least.

    I am not too keen on the new skintones (but I am happy that we get them!) : only because of possible other issues they might not fix because of the work done on the sliders and stuff or the possibilities of even more glitching in game and because I feel that the 18 hair colors we have (children obviously have all 9) are not enough now and they most certainly won't be after +100 new skin tones.. one can only hope they will give us some more options there also. At some point.

    I am also eager to see the actual patch notes since my request of more info on ongoing bug issues being put into the notes has been heard and I am sincerely hoping that they would start to acknowledge the issues and give us reassurance that something is being done to fix the stuff - even though they could not yet get them working properly.

    Hopefully we would start to see a small change in the way they treat bugs. They've added a lot new stuff to the game through patching this year and though I am grateful of that it feels it has come at expense of fixing bugged behaviors of sims. Hoping for a change in that.
