Sims 4 Update 1.79 Patch Notes – August 3, 2023

Bug Fixes for Base Game:

  • The female outfit with a foldover sweater (yfBody_EF18LongPant_RedandWhite) now keeps its hands to itself when the camera is far away.
  • Circular Roofs once again have shingles that lay properly.
  • L-shaped stairs that are two or more tiles wide no longer have a misplaced triangular section on the side.
  • Floor and Ceiling Pattern names have been updated to apply to both. Try them out for Painted Ceilings if you haven’t already!
  • Lessons about camera controls now have images that include the updated “Free Camera.” Use it to check out Ceilings that you can now customize!

Bug Fixes for Growing Together Expansion:

  • The “Screen Smarts” Moodlet that children get for watching the Brainchild Learning television channel now has text in all languages.
  • Sims can now enjoy their post-ride meal. Sims occasionally were stuck staring into space while starting activities such as eating or cooking, which was a possible side effect of going home from another location via “Ride Home.”

Bug Fixes for Horse Ranch Expansion:

  • Dazed newborn Foals that are fed an Age-Up Treat now become adults who maintain their “Horseness” when going on rides, so they don’t walk upright like Sims.
  • Sims on Horseback who select a “Community Job” from the Ranch Community Board now remain mounted in most cases when heading to the Job.
  • For new games in Chestnut Ridge, Emily now only recommends affordable starter lots.
  • The Welcome Wagon no longer sometimes overstays its welcome.
  • Sims can explore worlds using camera auto-follow on the active Sim while riding on a lot with walls set to “Medium” or “Tall” without skyrocketing above the world.
  • Sims keep their hands on the reins when their Horse moves on its own.
  • Sims making Nectar no longer freeze up when interacting with other Sims or making jokes about Body Hair.
  • The Mysterious Rancher now pays the full amount of Simoleons when a Sim sells multiple bottles of Nectar at once.
  • Selecting “Hire a Ranch Hand” on a Ranch Community Board and then switching to a Child now shows the initial Sim’s phone interface after selecting “Call to Hire Ranch Hand.”
  • Horse Training options that the Sim cannot afford now have a tooltip that correctly states the Sim’s name.
  • Sims who are not Father Winter no longer travel to locations such as the Equestrian Center via fireplaces.
  • Sims can now enter only one Horse Competition at a time to prevent confusion and staying in the Equestrian Center.
  • When selling many Mini Goats or Mini Sheep in rapid succession, the chance of one being left behind and invisible is lower now. If you encounter this, “Save” and “Reload” to resolve the issue.
  • Lots you can visit no longer have the “Place Animal…” interaction.
  • Manure/poop is more performant at the gameplay engine level.
  • Horses in locked, enclosed spaces or who otherwise cannot get to the edge of the lot now can be sold successfully.

Bug Fixes for Build Mode:

  • Rust’n Chic Table Lamp now slots onto typical horizontal surfaces rather than snapping to walls.
  • Paddock Fencing and Sturdy Ranch Fencing now can be built with rounded corners.
  • Rancher’s Dream Window’s black design now is fully black.

Bug Fixes for Create a Sim:

  • Selecting a premade shape for a Horse’s head now preserves the Mane and Tail Color and any Feathers.
  • Premade face shapes for Sims were missing for games that had Horse Ranch and not Werewolves. They’re back now!
  • “Plan Outfits” for Foals now includes Mane and Forelock selection.
  • Foals now have better framing in the Gallery.
  • The English riding outfit (ymBody_EP14RidingDressage_LogoBlueLt) now shows up with the “Feminine” filter.
  • The fringe jacket (yfTop_EP14JacketFringed_SolidBrown) now tucks into bottoms properly.
  • The “Jumpsuits” category for the “Masculine” filter no longer includes a few errant tops.
  • The “Boomtown Maverick” Styled Look no longer has two errant color swatches.
