Sims 4 update fixes ‘bad’ bug and adds new Mass Effect collaboration

A new Sims 4 update due for release on November 17th will finally fix the bizarre game of life glitch that was turning your virtual characters into literally balls of rage, while also introducing the highly anticipated Mass Effect clothing collaboration.

While relatively small and mostly focused on new cosmetics, this Sims 4 ‘SDX drop’ fixes a major problem with the current iteration of the life sim: the Sims glitch.

Due to a rare bug that appeared after patch 1.92, players noticed that their virtual characters have been adamant in declaring war against each other. While a variety of fixes were suggested, including using some of the best Sims 4 mods, none of them were ideal.

A new update from Sims Direct Communications has confirmed that the SDX drop will fix this annoying little issue, saying: “We have an update on overly aggressive/mean Sims. We are incorporating an adjustment solution to defuse the additional negativity taking place among Sims in tomorrow’s Sims Delivery Express.”

Now that your Sims will be friendlier, it’s worth rewarding them with some new cosmetics. Two hairstyles will be released as part of a collaboration with notable content creator DeeSims!, both perfect for representing your in-game heritage. Similar to some ‘SheaButtyr’ Sims 4 CC, players can now select Bantu knots and two braids when creating their characters, with the two hairstyles available for Sims of any age and ethnicity.

If changing your appearance isn’t enough, there are also plenty of Mass Effect-themed clothes coming to rock your wardrobe. You will be able to choose from a wide selection of different caps and t-shirts, and an N7 tattoo will be added for Sims who really, Really she wanted to have an affair with James Vega.

The icing on the cake comes in the form of a new song by Brazilian pop sensation Larissa ‘Anitta’ de Macedo Machado, who had to translate her entire song into Simlish. While she already speaks five languages, I doubt very much that I thought she would add Simlish to her repertoire. The song can be accessed through the ‘Pop’ music category.
