    The EP will have the natural pool colours, pool jets, and new pool surrounds and pool-related objects. The patch will have one new pool colour (the red one) and the "Pool" lot type.

    What about the "Nude" outfit category?

    I have the impression that's not patched, that it's in the EP.

    It's nice that they finally made a pool lot type, even if it's been a year since pools were patched in.

    It would've been nice if the NPCs noticed the pools in the community lot when they were new. It's like this magical source of swimmable water came into existence and everyone just ignored it. :(

    I'm really interested in the new greetings. Feel like it will help with making the sims feel more "alive". I'm also looking forward to a fix for inappropriate relationships and 64b. :)

    I only wish they'd patch in more "family/relationship tags" as well.

    Map view:
    • Buttons that were in the pop-up menu at the same spot have been moved to the lower right
    • Household manager has a new icon
    • Household manager icon can also be found next to the family in the lower left corner
    • I think change lot type was removed form map view

    Live Mode
    • Conversation window at the top has been revamp
    • Screenshot manager, settings for video and photo can now be found next to the speed buttons
    • Easy switch from Sims 3 to Sims 4 camera mode and back in the upper right corner added
    • Button for clubs added to the lower right corner

    That's what I can remember from the top of my head.

    It's a bit misleading.

    The 64 bit capability is part of a general patch.

    There is no way in the world that, for example, the 'musical chairs' fix is 64 bit only. If it were, I'd personally hop on a plane and go round to EA and insert a large garden gnome into the first SimGuru I came across.

    Everything is part of the general patch. Not sure what is misleading.

    There is no feature that is for 64 bit only (except 64 bit itself)

    You can do that if you play offline and don't patch ;)

    My question is why there is an easier switch between TS3 and TS4 cameras? I use the TS3. To me it is set and go thing for once. I would be interested to know if there are players that keep switching between the two cameras. They must have their reasons and I'm curious to know because I might be missing something.
    Everything I post is an opinion here and I think every post of others is as well.

    I certainly don't so I don't know why they added it. It's nice if your options get reset ;)

    Bug fixes are always great. I hope they don't break anything while they fix something else.

    I'm sure there will be new ones. Very confident on that.

    So the musical chairs fix hasn't been confirmed for this patch but is being worked on?

    If so, awesome!

    I glad there is a fix for musical chairs; however, one thing I hope with this fix is that Sims will still initially desire to sit near each other to eat and socialize. Once they find a seat, they should stay put, but I'd still like to see them want to join company with each other and not be scattered around the house when they eat and stuff. I like when they like to be together. I hope that part was not nixed entirely, but just tweaked to prevent constant chair shifting.

    From my understanding this is what will happen.

    I think this is being added precisely because "no one" uses the TS4 camera, so they added this big button for first time players to click and get the TS3 camera if they don't fiddle with settings. Sadly we can't disable anoter UI clutter... I can't see anyone having a use in switching between the two cameras that are not new players seeing which one they prefer.

    I use TS4 camera.... And I even played TS3. Now I'm so used to TS4, if I switch back, TS3 camera feels weird. But TS3 allows for more control over camera angles for screenshots. so the new button will be helpful, for me anyway
