A new patch was released yesterday - December 1st - to add update the Holidays pack and to address some general and packs related issues.


It looks like though that it created a new major issue: It BREAKS the Clubs System point (for those of us that have the Get Together Expansion pack!

*Issue was fixed with the patch released on December 6th!

Until EA comes up with a fix the advice is: Do NOT play any saved games you have with Clubs!!!

Other than that, the new patch updated the Holiday Celebration Pack with some new objects (a holiday table, fireplace, nutcracker, and centerpiece). And a fun little object called the Holiday Cracker. What's a Holiday Cracker?

This is an interactive object that a Sim can use, and they have a few different outcomes. Your Sim might find a piece of candy inside, which they'll immediately nom (obviously!) that might just give them a change in mood. Maybe they'll accidentally break what's in the cracker and find some scrap upgrade parts. Maybe they'll get a totally empty one, aww. Or maybe they'll find one of the new collectible objects. That's right, there's a new collection, gasp! The Holiday Cracker has a chance to grant one of 8 different themed plushies, but we'll let you find out what the themes are. They also give off a Playful aura!

A new filter was added to make it easier to find the Holiday Celebration Pack items, it's the "Holiday Pack" filter.

What else?

Backyard Stuff

  • Children will now gain motor skill after each trick slide they perform, and not just the first one.
