New expansion pack for The Sims 4, new set of challenges. Gamers are furious because the cult product has become … almost impossible to play due to a staggering amount of bugs.
The Sims is one of those games that probably everyone knows. And while casually browsing through this virtual entertainment, I’m often shocked at how many additions and content have appeared since the last time, I’m under no illusion that this is one of the most important series in the world of video games. And it is the premiere of yesterday’s “Licealne lata” application that causes a lot of confusion and … in a word, spoils the game.
We didn’t have to wait long for outraged players to respond, and the net was quickly flooded with negative comments and complaints. Not surprisingly, the first version is … unplayable, to put it mildly.
Each scene adds years to the characters. Issues with aging mechanics in The Sims 4 High School
The latest addition brings a lot of bugs and issues, but one of the biggest is undoubtedly the aging of the characters. The update made changes to sims aging settings, so … even intact characters aged. And when the scene changes (be it after traveling, after editing, in short after every loading screen), the characters age. A workaround that users have found is to … turn off sims aging, though let’s face it. this is only temporary relief.
If you think that’s the end of the bugs, then…well, nothing like that. Internet forums are full of rage because so many things have been dumped that it would actually be easier to replace what works. Fans report issues with unexpected curved walls, among others. In addition, virtual people are starting to … to put it mildly, go crazy. Some say they want to meet close family members, others strip in front of animals. These are not standard behaviors that have been produced for a long time, and they are nothing more than a terrible mistake that should never have happened. Fans credit creators with fluff—another one. Because this isn’t the first time Electronic Arts has released an expansion pack for The Sims, making the game unplayable.
Another addition, another setback. The players are angry, but hardly surprised
This is another case where the game stops working as it should after installing add-ons. Only the following weeks and the burning ground under the feet of the artists make everything work. The community around The Sims brand is admonishing Maxis and Electronic Arts for giving them illusory hopes that this time they’ll deliver a well-thought-out, well-made, customized product. Meanwhile, the reality turns out to be completely different. No integration with previously released plugins, bug bug, no end of problems.
