Patch Notes for The Sims 4 1.68

The main fixes included in The Sims 4 1.68 patch are as follows:

For base game

  • Toddlers are adapted to more closely resemble parents when using the genetics mechanic. This is to create more unique looking faces.
  • A fix has been implemented to prevent sims from moving when the game is paused.
  • The CAS items ‘Mint Green Belted Cardigan’ and ‘The Open Blazer’ have been correctly swatched.
  • A Juice Party now counts towards Throw 3 parties in the Party Aspiration.
  • Objects attached to walls are no longer removed when a different wall texture is applied in Build Mode.
  • The ‘Check for pen pal replies’ option is now displayed.
  • The message ‘Return from Daycare’ will now only appear once.
  • General game crash fixers when entering Live mode.
  • The free build cheat can now be used in the ‘Make money’ scenario.
  • The option to disable ‘Wants and Fears’ should now work properly.
  • Sims should be able to use public restrooms again.
  • Other description fixes in build mode.

For consoles

  • The “Show all households” option in the Manage households menu is working properly. There is a scroll function so that all households can now be viewed.
  • Can fully customize UI scaling.

Break the dust

  • A fix for the smelling animation. This should only activate when the environment is dirty.


  • Alien traits transfer properly as your Sim grows up.
  • A respectful introduction now fulfills the task of greeting colleagues/patients as part of the doctor’s career.


  • Disabled the possibility of sims freezing to death from sprinklers in the summer.
  • Fixed the bug that caused vacations to not be scheduled properly when there was a teen in the household.

Snowy escape

  • Work withdrawals are now removed when you work outside of working hours.

My wedding stories

  • Sims no longer talk about planning their wedding ceremony after they get married.


  • You can now properly change werewolf fur in CAS mode.

Unfortunately, the patch only contains bug fixes, no new CAS or build mode items. With two new kits on the way and one Sims live stream on January 31, we can expect new content soon.
