Hello again

Hello again! No I haven’t thrown or given up on this blog, RL has been just a stress filled – hot mess and to be honest, I really haven’t spent much time at all over the last 7-8 months in game or doing anything (creating) for my game. Hard as it may be to say these next words, I really haven’t missed  playing or creating for The Sims 3 or 4.

In other news, there will be a live stream of the next EP, City Living, for Sims 4 at 1 pm (Pacific Time) today (9/23/16). You can watch it here.  I have seen a couple of the newest Official Trailers here,  here, and here and I must say it looks pretty cool.

Latest word is that Rachel Franklin has left Maxis. Good thing or bad? I have my own opinion on that and will leave it at that.

Until next time simmers…keep on simming and Happy simming to all!

Taking a look at the new CAS options in Sims 4: CAS

So after playing around in CAS yesterday after patching and learning a bit more about this new patch and the elimination of gender barriers, players won’t have to worry about their townies walking around in swapped out clothing. Only those Sims that you make and determine what their clothing attire preference will, I assume anyway but it sure would of made for some very interesting game play.

I’ll probably take some heat from my upcoming pic’s, but they are in NO WAY meant to degrade anyone! This is a game and I just wanted to show the changes made in CAS for the Sims 4. I’m only doing these because, well if you haven’t figured it out yet, this blog is mostly about my game and anything related to it.

When entering into CAS, under the gender tag you will find Custom Gender Settings. Here you can choose physical feature, clothing preference, what that Sim will be able to do and how they will use the toilet. It’s all up to you.

Next, if you changed their clothing preference, you can put them in anything you want as all clothing has had the barriers removed. (The male shown below is just to show that the male Sim can now where female clothing)

You can also change their style of walk and sound of their voice.

I did notice that some, not all CC was opened up. The team over at Sims 4 Studio’s has updated one of their most current tools, Jackpot. I will place that in my tools & tips page.
