New features

Since this is the Seasons patch, there are a few new features already included. I did not check them all out so for more details see here: Seasons Patch 1.42 – New Features & Options

Diving Board

You can find the diving board in  Build Mode – Pool and yes – I’m loving it.

CAS – EP filters

You can now filter your CAS content by EPs like you already can with your build/buy items.

Options – Disable Memories

Finally you won’t need a mod anymore to turn off memories. With the new feature you can decide if you don’t want to disable the memories, just the notifications or nothing at all.

Be aware that this feature won’t delete existing memories.

There’s an issue with this feature. Although it shows disabled from the beginning it isn’t really. You will need to choose another option first and then go back to disabled. Saving might also help.

More Obnoxious Store Advertisement

We can now buy worlds from the main menu directly. If you have the  ingame store turned off, you won’t get it.

Problem with this new  feature is that some see worlds they have already bought and also if you have the standard edition, you will still get the gold edition as available to buy.

Greeting Cards

You can now post Greeting Cards on your (or your friends wall). To do so, go to the school, town hall or science facility where you have to option to take a photo for the greeting card.

The Sims will actually go to the rabbithole, it will then take a moment and then you’ll get the option to upload the greeting card to your wall.

Blue Print Modus

With this modus you can now place pre-made rooms.

CAW

The new version of CAW has many issues. If you’re building a world, it’s best to not update atm.

See this thread for details: Save Issues with Supernatural and Seasons CAW: Discussion and research thread

Bugs

Please report all bugs here: Seasons Bug Thread

  • Sims reset when using the telescope
  • Sims don’t move in after getting married
