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.

The Sims 4, changes are a comin

It’s been recently announced that there will be a pretty big change coming to the Sims 4 in the next update patch. After reading what Sims Community had to say about the whole change, I’m still not exactly sure on how I feel about it. What I do know is our game is about to be changed forever.

What is changing? Gender Barriers removed. According to Rachel Franklin, the team at Sims 4 has been working for over a year to bring this change about.

What will gender barriers removed do to your game?  Things like clothing, shoes, hair (face and body), accessories will be accessible to either female or male Sims.

Rachel stated in a email sent to the Associated Press: “female Sims can wear sharp men’s suits like Ellen (DeGeneres), and male Sims can wear heels like Prince.”

She also went on to say: players can now change their Sims’ gender at any time and specify whether they can reproduce with other characters. She said Maxis worked with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender advocacy group GLAAD on the update, including following a suggestion to remove gender symbols associated with characters in the game’s gallery.

To read the entire story on this next patch to be released on Thursday, go to Sims Community.
