If you don’t want to make new Sims in The Sims 4, you can always download ones other players have made from the gallery. Some players are saying that unless you’re looking for characters who are white, your options are pretty slim.

In an effort to keep their fans in the loop about upcoming features, The Sims’s development team has started a monthly live stream to talk about the game and sometimes hint at what’s to come.
Their very first livestream was a doozy: they introduced a new career and terrain editing tools, both coming in a free update at some point in the future.
The Sims, by design, is meant to be as malleable as the Sims you create. Sims fans create challenges to spice up this open-ended world, like the Legacy Challenge or the Random Genetics Challenge.
I’m trying to beat the 100 Baby Challenge. It’s the hardest task I’ve ever set for myself in The Sims.
In The Sims 4, there’s a feature that allows you to download Sims that other players have made. Looking for a hot guy for your Sim to hook up with? Head to the gallery and download one. Need a single mum with two cats and a dog? You can find one, as long as someone made one. Based on what’s on the gallery right now, it seems like a lot of Simmers are into making pregnant teenagers.

It’s easy to see the ups and downs of life reflected in this game—Sims even endure the mundanity of catching a cold and getting bad grades. One thing Sims can’t do, though, is be sober.
Nitpicking is easy. I can always spot the one dirty dish in an otherwise flawless kitchen. Likewise, small flaws in a video game can stick out to me. The Sims 4 fandom loves to nitpick, and although I’m also really bothered by that one lot in Bedrock Straight where a single tile is mismatched from the rest of the house, I see this game get nitpicked way too often.
The truth is, at its core, The Sims 4 is a good game, and it always has been.
If you’re playing a straight female Sim in The Sims 4, finding someone to date can be difficult. Many of the pre-made Sims are either taken or not that cute, and if you take a chance on a randomly generated Sim, you might end up with a hotheaded slob who hates kids. Luckily, you can peruse the Sims 4's Gallery to find more eligible bachelors, all dreamed up by members of the Sims community. I took a look at what’s on offer.
With every new Sims expansion, there comes new bug fixes. Just before the Seasons expansion launched last week, The Sims' team pushed through some fixes. Turns out that the expansion itself made a few more bugs, which they fixed yesterday. Some of these patch notes are pretty funny. Here are my favourites.
