Update: 12/20/18 - PC 1.48.94.1020 / Mac 1.48.94.1220


Hey Simmers,

A quick note for a couple of hot issues.
You should now be able to once again, use
speed controls when in cinematic camera (aka tab camera).
You should now be able to once again have your Sim travel
without causing them to become corrupted because they
did not get to know Lin-Z.
You should now be able to once again dance the Samba,
assuming you previously knew the Samba.

    Wow, kudos to the Guru's for taking that time to put out an emergency patch, especially with Christmas around the corner.

    I very much appreciate their hard work and working late to get things fixed for the players. :)

    Patching right now.

    I just took a 30 minute break and now see a quick download. I think this is the first time in my 18 years of simming ; ) Very nice of them! Happy Holidays!

    That's great I was just worrying about one of my saves maybe I can test it.
    Finally changed my words here again...nothing fun, moving on.

    Please tell me I'm not the only one just realizing the smart speaker is named for SimGuruLyndsay. :o

    Oh, I'm very grateful.
    I was a bit worried that this issue would have had to wait for the next major patch, which I guess would be next year in January.

    But, now I can enjoy having the Lin-Z in my Sims' homes right away.

    You might want to repair your game after downloading the patch before trying your save.

    I'm assuming the consoles will get this update too right before the smart speaker is introduced.

    I got the message 'an update available" and my first reaction was I just did the update.

    Thanks for addressing game breaking bugs so quickly.

    On another note is the speed buttons working at all in tab mode? Doesn't seem to work for me.

    Might try repairing my game to check.

    Of all the hotfixes for game-breaking bugs, this one has got to be the fastest. Kudos to the people who worked overtime. :)

    Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best :innocent:

    ...Wow. They actually did magically put out a patch before the New Year.

    I actually applaud them. Kudos to you devs and Happy Holidays and all that jazz!

    Did you get it working, @LadyKyn? Mine were broken before the hotfix, but work again with the hotfix update applied. Which makes me very happy....this was a bigger deal to me then the buggy Lin-Z. If not, I know the UI Extension mod had time control issues after the patch earlier this week; if you use that mod, maybe it needs an update for the hotfix as well.

    This post will be edited by StormKeep at some point.

    I'm performing a game repair myself just in case.
  • earthgirlearthgirl Posts: 1,009 Member
    Um... okay. I was wondering what happened since I just updated the game yesterday and now I had to update again.

    Hopefully as some patches will not work on saves only on those going forward but you have to try out the old save and see if it did.

    Hey you were right. Took it out and it works fine now. :)

    Odd thing is that I had downloadedbthat hotfiz for the UI but guess it still wasn't working?

    Credit to the Gurus for fixing this issue so quickly, I hadn't expected it would happen before the new year. Good job!

    It fixed it for my corrupted household without me doing anything on my end (no repair game, no cache clearing, etc.).

    I encountered the bug last night just before turning in, so I didn't feel like trying any of the workarounds Crin posted. Luckily, the patch seems to fix it regardless. :smile:

    Does anyone else have problem now with number keys? They don't speed up/down the game. But when I want to rename something etc. the numbers do work. Just asking before I start with the whole cc/mod annoying control, lol :disappointed:
