Origin: The Sims 4 Pre-Loads and Great Game Guarantee

Written by Paperpin on . Posted in Basegame

Hey Simmers!
Did you preorder The Sims 4 on Origin? You did? Great, because you can official start preloading the game, that is, downloading it in advance and get it unlocked on the release day!

This doesn't mean you can play right after downloading it, but that you can download it before the release so you won't have to wait on the release date (even because it's ~9GB in size!)!

Speaking of Origin, I'm sharing a link that not everyone's aware of: like any other retailer, Origin gives its customers the chance to get a refund if they don't like the game. It's called Great Game Guarantee (and The Sims 4 is part of that): you have one week to download the game and 24 hours to play it before asking for a refund. More information here: https://www.origin.com/great-game-guarantee

The Familiar Faces of Willow Creek

Last month we told you a little bit about the families of Oasis Springs, and now let’s take a look at the families of Willow Creek.

Back in May, we had our first look at the Goths, one of the most well-known couples residing in Willow Creek. Since learning that Mortimer and Bella have returned, many of you have been curious about the fate of their children, Cassandra and Alexander. We all know that our teenage years can be an awkward time, but Cassandra, is a stunner and has obviously followed in her Mother’s genetic footsteps! Let’s not forget about little Alexander; will the youngest child in the family have time to overcome his eerie heritage and live a normal life or will he be another macabre member of the family?

Create A Sim and Animation

Written by Snow on . Posted in Basegame

The Sims 4 features perhaps the most powerful character creator in gaming. This tool offers a wide variety of customizable content, including physical features. You can make your Sims wispy thin or sumo wrestler large. Noses can be huge or tiny, hooked or straight, wide or narrow. Mouths can move around on the face. A Sim’s head can be squished or stretched, it’s all up to you.

While all of that variety is of course awesome, it also creates a huge challenge in terms of animation: 

Imagine you are creating an animation where a Sim puts her hand close to her hip. In the animation, that hand will have a defined position in space - about three feet up from the ground and one foot over from the center of the Sim. The problem is that the hip on a sumo wrestler sized Sim would be an additional half foot out from where a more slender Sim’s hip would be. So when the Sim plays back that animation, their hand would be buried inside their body:
