earlier this week, The Sims 4 received A big free update which added curved walls, body hair, and new desires and fears. It also seems to have accidentally added incest. Oh, and people age much faster. It’s a strange time to be a sim, that’s for sure.
like the By PC GamerReddit and elsewhere, The Sims 4 Players are reporting that after the July 26 game update, some in-game characters are looking to date family members. One of the players shared a screenshot of an old woman who suddenly He wanted to have a romantic relationship with his son. Another player shared a bug report with EA asking for one of their male SIMs Ask his twin sister to be his girlfriend. In the same support thread, an Xbox player shared an example of a girl who wants to date her father. Yes!
what’s up here? Well, according to some The Sims 4 Players and modders, a possible problem with the new “Wants” system that was seen in the older one has been added Sims Games. This system gives Sims things to do and accomplish, giving players more goals to chase. However, it appears that a bug in the system is creating “requests” that involve romantic relationships with anyone, including other family members. Once again, yikes!
Fortunately, EA is aware of this bug. yesterday, A developer confirmed on Twitter that the team is aware of the incest problem and is “looking to fix it as soon as possible.” EA also reaffirmed that it is working on a fix In a support thread about the bug On the publisher’s official website
In addition to this less-than-ideal bug, there is another issue that some players run into The Sims 4 After the latest update, it’s less blatant and more existentially devastating.
Players report that characters are aging rapidly. Some people have experienced Sims aging from young babies to old people in a matter of minutes. Like the “family members who want to date” situation. EA is also aware of this And working on a fix in the meantime, the company suggests players use the “Normal Lifespan” option to avoid this aging issue.
