Please note I'm currently working on the new site. I didn't want to take the site offline though, so you can still visit it. However me working on the site while it's still online means a lot of the pages will appear wonky. But not to worry, it won't take too long. Happy

Today is the day! The Sims™ 4 Toddler Stuff Pack* is now available for purchase, introducing some fun new objects and clothing to fuel your Sim Toddler's creativity.

One of the newest additions with this Stuff Pack, is the ability to host play dates for your little ones. The toddler life stage is an important time where they are learning how to walk, communicate their feelings, and start forming their own little personalities. Hosting a play date for your little one is a great way to build up relationships and fuel their creativity.

To host a play date, make sure you select an adult Sim in the household and use their phone to select “Plan a Social Event,” followed by “Play Date”. Here you can select the Sims you'd like to invite over for a play date (don't worry, the little ones caregivers will come with them to join in on the fun!) Once your play date has started, your Toddlers will enjoy spending time with their friends playing with their new dollhouse, taking a ride down their new slide, and/or crawling around in new colorful tunnels.

Sim parents can also cook up some delicious backyard food with your new grill. Set up your new shade to protect your young ones from the harmful rays, and enjoy bonding with fellow parents while watching them play.

We can't wait to see what fun your little ones will have with the addition of The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and Twitch, Like us on Facebook, and Subscribe to our YouTube channel.

*Requires The Sims 4 game (sold separately) and all game updates to play.

Get ready for things to get more adorable with The Sims™ 4 Toddler Stuff Pack*, coming August 24, 2017!

 

Since the addition of toddlers in The Sims 4 at the beginning of this year, we have seen many Sims expand their families and open their homes to an assortment of unique and adorable little tykes. Now, with The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack, your Sims tots will get some extra ways to express themselves as they continue to develop their personalities, interests, and friendships.

The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack provides a variety of adorable new outfits for you to enjoy. Whether dressed as cute little foxes, or sprightly fairies, your tot's imagination will run wild. But don't worry, clothing isn't just about play time. Your fashion-focused toddlers will enjoy a more stylish ensemble to fit their tastes, alongside new hair styles as well. 

And what's a toddler pack without new tot-sized playground equipment?! From hopping into the ball pit, to scooting down their new slide, or scuttling through colorful tunnels, there is lots of fun to be had. In fact, they can even play make-believe while watching their new play structure turn into a pirate shipwreck resting on the ocean floor, or exploring the galaxy as an astronaut - the choice is theirs. You can even invite your neighbors' toddlers over for a play date! Let loose, make new friends, and let your Sim parents increase the fun through story telling, and cooking up the tyke's favorite foods.

For those of you that are attending Gamescom in Cologne from August 22 - 26th, The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Pack will be playable prior to its release! Visit us in the Family & Friends Zone in Hall 10.2.

We can't wait to see what new play areas you create for your tots when The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff releases on August 24, 2017. Keep up to date on everything about The Sims 4 Toddler Stuff by following us on Twitter, Instagram, and Twitch, Like us on Facebook, and Subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Changelog

    • Sunflower can now be grown in summer as well as fall

 

Bug Fixes

  • Wild plums are now labeled as fruit.
  • Grandpa’s Shrine should now always properly give the reward for reaching 4 candles (works retroactively if you never received your reward)
  • Fixed issue where gathering an item with the “botanist” profession would fail if the inventory was full, even though the gold-level item was present in the inventory.
  • Slime charmer ring should now protect against giant slimes
  • You can no longer tap a stump
  • Fixed Joja Warehouse graphic issue in winter
  • “Check action”-mapped keys should now work to attach bait to a rod.
  • Rain ambient sound should no longer play in Sandy’s Oasis under any conditions.
  • Your baby should now be properly born, even if you pass out in the mines on the eve of the birth.
  • Moonlight Jellies engagement crash
  • Galaxy sword should now be truly unloseable
  • You can no longer lose hay to a hopper because you have no silo.
  • You can no longer plant fruit trees off the farm.
  • “Attack” foods now properly give an attack buff.
  • Clay can no longer always be found one tile above a previously discovered clay spot.
  • Blue Jazz flowers in the refrigerator are now properly consumed in cooking recipes.
  • Fruit that drops when you chop a tree now properly stacks with fruit that drops when you shake a tree
  • Worm bins no longer continue to produce worms every 10 minutes after midnight
  • Jack-o-lanterns properly glow

  • You will now see the final Joja cutscene if you switched to Joja after starting with the community center.
  • When retrieving the cave carrot for Marnie, she will only take one from you.
  • Fixed strange behaviors when picking up certain items with a full inventory.
  • Having no silo no longer causes your hay to disappear when placed in a hopper.
  • When a bomb is placed and then the player leaves the area, the resulting debris will no longer erroneously appear in the new area.
  • Watering a trough in a slime hutch will now have no effect on the troughs in other slime hutches.
  • Using the rain totem and then quickly entering your house no longer causes you to become stuck in the wall.
  • The stone floor now look correct in any configuration.
  • Numerous minor bug fixes.
  • Typo fixes

 

Note: The new balancing changes correct the values of a few outlier crops that were far more valuable than all others by a huge margin. I don’t want Stardew Valley to make players feel “forced” into one particular way of making money. I think it’s a lot more fun to feel like there are many different options for success. However, I do understand that growing blueberries and making ancient fruit wine is part of the Stardew culture at this point, so I’ve made sure that they are still very lucrative options. But these changes should help players feel like they have a few more options.

I hope you enjoy the new update!

Squeeee! :D
