    Mass Effect in TS4 is not for me, but I see it will get patched tomorrow, and if I shall patch my game (have been a while) without this addition, I guess I should update today! Oups.

    I'm on Origin and not yet on the App. Can I still update my game without then being forced to switch to App? And - is there some recent bugs I should be aware of? I think my latest update was right after the HSY patch. Not even sure I've missed anything but that poster that I can also live without, but there might be manor fixes that we don't get to read a lot about...

    You think it's a good idea patching my game to night?

    The worst bug that is affecting a lot of people right now is sims being mean to each other for no reason which is ruining peoples games, if you have Snowy Escape you will probably not be affected by it but it has not been fully confirmed that having that EP will not give you the bug.

    Thanks. I see it already will be fixed with the patch I planned to skip, LOL, so I guess I'll just pass it all as I don't have the mean thing in the first place. And I think I don't have much else to worry about either - the change phone color glitch was fixed but was solved on my end with mod. I might just as well update at a later time.

    I have snowy escape and I think one of my sims got caught up in this. I haven’t seen her or her wife do anything remotely mean or angry to anybody let alone each other, but one of them has a hidden moodlet for ‘near unfriendly’ when they’re together. I can’t remove it even with cheats. I can, but it instantly comes back. I only found it by accident and it hasn’t shown itself in any visible way in their relationship. Their relationship bars are both maxed out green and pink. I hope it doesn’t and that a fix will remove it. Otherwise if it starts causing issues I’ll have to get out an old version and bring them up to date on skills and everything.

    Am I the only one who doesn't care a rip about this? Just more stuff I'll never use to clutter up the space in my game. :disappointed:

    well meanwhile last few drops are not exactly my style I do still like these better than whatever those logitech headphones were

    (+ I am happy for people who have been wanting these things)

    also I do have feeling these might look nice on aliens and punk sims even if yeah its not gonna be every gal look in my game i think

    Lol, I had to laugh. Although I have heard of the Mass Effect, I don’t know anything about it. And, I knew nothing about N7….. rofl, so they are just as good as simlish to me!

    Cannot wait to try the two-strand twists on my female sims.

    New Bantu Knots and Two Strand Twist Hairstyles for The Sims 4
    You Make The Sims featuring DeeSims


    DeeSims has had a love for *The Sims™* from a very young age. As a dedicated Simmer, YouTuber, and content creator, she knows no bounds when it comes to storytelling within *The Sims™ 4*.
    It is Simmers like DeeSims that continue to spark us, and we wouldn’t be us without YOU! As part of our ongoing You Make The Sims series, we’re continuing to spotlight creators across the world who inspire us and the game we make.

    For the upcoming SDX drop, The Sims has collaborated with DeeSims to create two stunning, natural hairstyles, Bantu knots and two strand twists, that are fit for any occasion. Both are protective, staple styles originated and worn by the Black community.

    We sat down and spoke with DeeSims about the importance of this addition to the game, her inspiration for the styles, and how they will enhance the Create-A-Sim (CAS) experience for Simmers.

    DeeSims pictured above with Sims showing off the Bantu Knots and Two Strand Twists

    When we connected with you on this collaboration opportunity back in June and you started to research what hairstyle you wanted to see in game, did you have a specific goal in mind?

    My goal was representation! I knew I wanted to create more textured hairstyles for the game. I wanted to embrace curly and textured hair patterns with day to day hairstyles and to create styles that are common in the Black community, so more and more Simmers could continue to see themselves in The Sims 4!

    What made you decide on the Bantu knots and two strand twists hairstyles for your collaboration? Did you have specific inspiration?

    I had so much inspiration! It was truly hard to decide which path I wanted to take because there are so many amazing hairstyles that stem from the Black community. But once plans were in motion, it was clear that the Bantu Knots and Two Strand twist hairstyles were perfect for my vision!

    How does it feel to have collaborated on two hairstyle pieces being added toThe Sims 4?

    It's so surreal! I love The Sims and the franchise! I’ve been playing The Sims since I was very young. I promise you, as a young kid, I never would have thought I would one day create something that would be added to the game. It feels good to contribute to a game that has had a huge impact on my life!

    What value do these two hairstyles add toThe Sims 4in your opinion?

    I believe they hold a great value! The hairs are detailed with features that Simmers take into account. So much time and research went into this project, and those little details matter. I wanted to make sure that every feature was well thought out and implemented. For that, and that the hairs are so freaking cute, I believe the Simming Community will embrace them!

    Which hair color swatches are you most excited to see the community style?

    I am excited for the purple hair swatch of the Bantu Knots! Purple is my favorite color. I’m also excited about the roots of the hair; the rich colored hair swatches have slightly darker roots with the Bantu knots. It has a realistic feel to it which was very important to me when creating these hairstyles!

    Early Concept Art for Bantu Knots & Early Concept Art for Two Strand Twists

    What’s something new you learned about hair in the process of designing hairstyles forThe Sims?

    I learned about hair budgeting. To stay true to the character design of the game, there are certain things you have to take into account when creating hairs - the length, the texture, the bump outs, the curves…they all play a part in creating a style. You have to account for clothing or objects that interact with the hair and how it would all pan out with your idea. It was very rewarding to see my ideas come to life! It was a great experience and I truly learned a lot!

    How do you see people using these hairstyles in the game/how would you style Sims with these hairstyles?

    The hairstyles are versatile! They can be used on any occasion - from a wedding, to a party, to makeover for your mid-life crisis, the options are limitless. I honestly see Simmers using these hairstyles casually in their day to day looks…that’s exactly what I’m going to do!

    The two Create-A-Sim items by DeeSims will be available beginning 11/17 in The Sims 4 on PC via EA app, Mac® via Origin, Steam®, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One systems.

    I am so very happy about the fix for the angry sim issue! I enjoy most of the free content they give us and welcome even more hair styles as I like a variety of sims and will use these styles in my game. I am not familiar with Mass Effect but have heard of it. I enjoy dressing my sims in a variety of styles no matter what generation the styles represent, depending on my gameplay. I want each of my sims to be an individual with their own taste, so the more the better!

    Hey all,

    The fix intended to go live for this issue with today's SDX drop will now be going live in early December, we sincerely apologize for the delay.

    We understand that this issue is a major pain point right now and it's very frustrating attempting to play The Sims 4 around it, but please keep discourse civil.

    Thanks.
