The Sims 4 Update Version 1.32 – Patch Notes on October 6

Electronic Arts and Maxis released a new update for The Sims 4 today. We have the full patch notes for this patch on october 6.

The Sims 4 Update 1.32 is now available for download. Unfortunately, we do not know the size of the download at the moment, but it can vary depending on the platform.


The Sims 4 Patch Notes 1.32

  • Fixed an issue in which external garbage cans were constantly being filled up when not having Eco Lifestyle installed. It is a good thing to be conscious of our overall everyday waste footprint but there is something to be said about too much trash that is… seemingly uninvited.
  • Sims will now use the dining table to eat again. Sometimes if I’m in a hurry, I grab a meal on the go and don’t sit down to eat, but sometimes you need to sit down and enjoy a nice meal, you know?
  • You pay your new bills, all the new bills, keep track of all the bills. We think you can do it. So, hope you like this update too as we have adjusted Lot Taxes to be more appropriate per Lot.
  • Fixed an issue in which the message “Not Expanded to Ops” would appear while in Build Mode and would hinder gameplay. If this is the behavior with “Not Expanded to Ops” I don’t want to see what “Expanded to Ops” looks like, unless it is a good thing, but let’s not get carried away.
  • Had a good talk with Sims that had neglected their duties with their Toddlers. They can go back to Potty Training and Read to Sleep to their little angels.
  • Fixed an issue in which Favorited Items in inventory were being reset when editing Lots through Manage Worlds.
  • Sims that were transferred to other Households will no longer reset any Household settings like Bed Assignments. Reading about this issue and trying to imagine it, brought me to this:


<insert dramatic music>
“What do you want?”

“It’s not that simple!”
“But… <sigh> What.Do.You.Want?!”
“Just because you moved out, and you are suddenly back in our lives doesn’t mean you can disrupt everything ok? I had my bed, with MY NAME ON IT!”
<end dramatic music>


  • A new foe has appeared! A challenger approaches! Error 124:2951a73 enters the fray… and is properly squashed. Good luck next time Error 124:2951a73… Well, don’t come back so… farewell!
  • The Lin-Z Smart Speaker has been updated to now play the Focus and Metal stations.

Island Living

  • Fixed an issue in which all non-decorative rocks disappeared after traveling from different Lots. Was it the work of impostor rocks? Igneous looks especially shifty. Sus.

Discover University

  • Fixed an issue with the ICYA Chest in which it appeared locked after Sims moved from one Household to another. My precious! Mine!

Eco Lifestyle

  • Fixed an issue that reset Bits and Pieces when Sims moved to other Households. No uh, if you move, move but leave my Bits and Pieces within my Household thank you very much.
  • The Community Voting Board is no longer listed as a DEBUG item, no longer has a defective thumbnail, and can be placed within the Lot.
  • Civil Designer Sims can now complete Work from Home Assignments.
  • We have rebuilt the Store No More Home Fabricator so that it doesn’t break at least once a day. All returns are subject to warranty inspection, no Simoleons were harmed in this endeavor.
  • We spent some time tasting… I mean… monitoring yes, Sims’ behavior in regards to Cooking and Baking Cakes pretty much non stop. We managed to correct said behavior, but hopefully, we won’t lose access to the delicious goods.

Outdoor Retreat

  • Fixed a routing issue that prevented Sims from extinguishing engulfed Sims that are sitting by the Campfire. Gives a whole new meaning to “Warming up by the fire.”

Dine Out

  • Fixed an issue with Restaurant Menus that made them appear blank or corrupted. Blind tasting menus in real life are a thing, but I don’t think that is what this issue wanted to convey.

Fitness Stuff

  • We have added the Focus and Metal station as an option for Earbuds. Have you claimed your free Earbuds yet?

Tiny Living

  • The Media Marathoner All-on-the-Wall, and the Media Marathoner now have the option so Sims can perform Air Guitar. Yearrrrgggg.


  • Fixed an issue with keys [Q] and [E] when used with the Tripod, now those keys should move the camera up and down freely. Strike a pose!

    I also got hit with weird tax increase. I moved someone into a small 20×20 lot in Windenberg, but I’d just bought Jungle Adventure (I’m behind the times, I know), and I never built on the lot, she was perpetually on vacation. The first bill was like 800 Simoleons and then the next is was almost 9,000. And it’s all the more bizarre because both bills happened post this update. I moved her to a 20×30 lot to download a specific house, and the tax is over 2,000k. I thought the tax issue had been fixed this year, things more reasonable, now they’ve broken it again?

    And like Michael Hendrix, the Freelander job was broken. Can’t finish jobs, can’t get paid. Has that not been fixed either? I really do appreciate that they fixed the trash can issue, but breaking the taxes after fixing them really sucks.

    Why the extreme lot tax change? I mean mate, I play rags to riches. My lot doesn’t have much on it, I’m off the grid, and I’m getting hit with over 2k in bills every week? I don’t want to break my rules just because an insane tax increase was added to the game. Like was it meant to be this insane? I would understand a couple extra hundred but to go from 200 to 2k what the bloody hell mate?

    There’s also an issue where Sims will automatically pull items from their inventory like the sketch pad when it was never there or purchased. Same with the clay. I continuously delete it from their inventory.

    My lot taxes have increased substantially. My bills went from $200 to over 5k in two different homes. Both are tier 2 tiny homes. This increase totally defeats the reduce bill option of tiny homes. I paid bills like this on my non tiny living homes.
