Soeben ist ein neues, 3GB großes Update erschienen, welches euer Spiel auf die nächste Woche erscheine Erweiterung „Hunde & Katzen“ vorbereitet. Unter anderem gibt es neue Dachformen- und Optionen, einen Verkleinerungscheat und einiges mehr.

Wenn ihr Mods im Spiel habt, müsst ihr diese in den Spieloptionen unter weiteres mit den Häkchen „Benutzerdefinierte Inhalte und Mods aktivieren“ und „Script-Mods erlauben“ wieder aktivieren. Aber Achtung: es kann sein, dass einige eurer Mods nach solch einem riesigen Update nicht mehr funktionieren werden, ihr solltet deswegen überprüfen, ob eure Mods vom Mod-Ersteller als „Unschädlich“ eingestuft wurden, und sie erst dann wieder in euer Spiel verschieben.

Neue Dachformen:

Nachdem die Entwickler schon vor einer ganzen Weile neue Dachformen gezeigt haben, wurden die vier Formen jetzt hinzugefügt: rund, vier- fünf- und achteckig. Zudem haben die Dächer neue Veränderungspunkte, mit denen ihr unter anderem „wellige“ Formen erstellen könnt.

Außerdem können sich die Baumeister unter euch über drei neue Dachleisten freuen, die jetzt im Baumodus bereit stehen:


Mit der Tastenkombination STRG und ß ist es im Baumodus jetzt ganz einfach möglich, Objekte zu verkleinern. Dies ist vorallem für große Teppiche oder Deko-Objekte sinnvoll.


Wenn ihr einen leistungsschwachen PC habt, solltet ihr euch die neue Sims-Limitierung, die ihr in den Optionen unter „Gameplay“ finden könnt, ansehen. Damit werden, falls sich zu viele Sims in der Spielwelt befinden sollten, ein paar eurer Sims gelöscht. In den Optionen könnt ihr jetzt aber auch ebenfalls sehen, wie viele Sims aktuell in eurer Spielwelt sind.

In der Weltenverwaltung könnt ihr jetzt auch wichtige Sims, die ihr nicht verlieren wollt, als Favoriten markieren, diese werden damit nicht gelöscht.


  • Wenn ihr ein neues Spiel startet, landet ihr ab sofort immer in der Weltenauswahl
  • Vampire und Aliens wurden in der Unterkategorie „Kreaturen“ zusammengefasst
  • Wenn ihr die Shift-Taste beim Platzieren von Objekten gedrückt haltet, könnt ihr mehre Objekte gleichzeitig platzieren
