December Patch Speculation 2020 (2nd December Patch Out Now)Dec 14th 2020

catloverplayercatloverplayer Posts: 93,534 Member
Once again this patch will be massave with new skintones and a slider for both skintones and makeup. 2 Hairstyles are getting updated including the afro from the base game.

I'm also hoping for lots of bug fixes in this patch for both pc/mac and the consoles. I'm hoping that some of these fixes are to Snowy Escape. Also the platforms are very buggy as well as the stairs. There is one glitch with platforms that you can see a hole in them. The stairs for a lot of people can't be used if you have platforms and there is an aging bug that won't let you age up sims regardless of age with the cake.

    Yes I’m ready for a new patch, especially one that fixes that cabbage afro. It’s a dream come true, been wanting that for years!

    My guess is that they will not fix many things from snowy escape in December patch, we will get the emergency hot fix now and then, with lucky, we can get the stairs or platforms bugs fixed. Beside that, I think they are following the timeline, that means they will keep focusing on eco lifestyle fixes.

    But they probably stoped whatever they are looking to fix to solve the crash issue. Don’t know if they will get time enough to fix many others things.
    Hopefully I am wrong.

    Just an FYI but the 13th is a Sunday. That doesn’t sound right to me! :smile:
    Also I’m pretty sure I read in the blog post it was going to be the 8th (or 10th I can’t quite remember exactly!)

    I dread patches now. It's like one step forward but two steps back. It's worse when they break the things that are fundamental to one's game.

    I can say that this is pretty legit(the tag I mean) they never included baby tag before in the game xml.

    That’s just not true. A quick search found a post from 2016 and they were already using the baby tag under test_globals back then.
    also they are still adding the unused_flag in the new coding
    such as this code which was made for kids stuff pack

    i hope they are really working on them.

    I just hope that the CAS update will work fine, that's what I am mostly hoping for with the december update. I don't really need more content this year, just release a working skin tone update, patch the game so that people who are having problems playing the game without it crashing so they can play it and I am happy.

    And yeah, I would not read too much into those tuning files, they had codes for horses back with the cat's and dogs pack if I recall correctly.

    I wish they fix some of the glitches and bugs brought by last patch

    build mode is getting very wonky with lots of nonsense glitches with walls and platforms

    especially round ones turned out to be ingredient for disaster soup

    i just really hope skintones and makeup slider does not get added to the disaster soup and they are able to add them without big bug fest so i don't dare to hope for other big additions this time around

    After our last patch I’m not looking forward to this one. I will wait it out to see the issues that other players will get.

    There is an emergency hot patch coming to console ASAP. So some of these bugs that's been plaguing the console version maybe fix sooner than the Dec patch, ( Hopefully ).

    Same here I’m now dreading the patches they seem to break so much in the game.

    This is to expected when there's a lot of stuff in a game. The new patch is almost always going to break something in the game.
