Sims 4 Official Patch Notes for 25 January 2022 update

Along with announcing the next Sims 4 Kit – yet another Create-a-Sim collab with a designer – The Sims 4 also released a new update for the base game.

The new Kit, set to be released on 3 February 2022 on all platforms, is inspired by Brazil’s Carnaval and simply called The Sims 4 Carnaval Streetwear Kit.

Interestingly, though, the patch also added a few romantic interactions, which will no doubt make the theory of the yet-to-be-named Game Pack being some or other wedding/romance themed pack looking even more likely.

As always, we take the patch notes verbatim from the official announcement on The Sims forums, and we edit only for style and brevity where required. Patch notes now available below.

Sims 4: Official patch notes for 25 January 2025

Update 1/25/2022
PC: / Mac:
Console: Version 1.51

Hello Simmers!

Hope you are all well and safe wherever you are in the World.

We start 2022 with the season of Simthing to Celebrate, or as I call it – Confetti Season, and we started it not only with a Sims Delivery in early January but now, with a game update!

We hope this new year brings everyone happiness. To me, every new year is a chance for new beginnings, and new wishes. Not going to deny that this year hits a bit different and more so than the past, and as I’m writing these notes I feel a bit nostalgic even, but without losing the optimism that the new year brings.

I hope you all have a great start of the year and, and well of course, the months to come. We have a fantastic year ahead in all things Sims, and we look forward to share it with all of you, and for you all to enjoy.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback and, remember, have fun!



What’s New?

This game update might not be a big endeavor, but it will allow us to get the year started.

As today we announced the Carnaval Streetwear Kit, we want to start getting into the spirit of Carnaval. For this we have added a new Radio Station – named aptly Carnaval Beats – so your Sims (and you) can enjoy the festive rhythm inspired by Brazil’s Carnaval on your favorite in game stereo.

Bug Fixes in the latest Sims 4 update

  • If your Sims are the type of those who aspire to be Villainous Valentines – now they can Convince to Leave Spouse to count toward that goal. #sorrynotsorry
  • We added text to some items that were missing text completely when found via bb.showhiddenobjects cheat across multiple packs.
  • In the spirit of love and not breaking relationships apart? too much, Sims will no longer get a call from their romantic partner asking for advice on what to do with a possible pending engagement proposal from that same Sim. Can you imagine? Awkward.

Cottage Living

We fixed an issue in which translated text for Cottage Living Likes and Dislikes was not being displayed in all languages except English.

Journey to Batuu

Sims with certain traits that affect gig compensation will now receive proper galactic credit payout for completed missions on Batuu. Because your Sims are worth it, and so are you!
