EA may add Sim disabilities to The Sims 4

In a series of tweets, SimGuruGrant (The Sims 4 producer Grant Rodiek) confirmed that EA is "actively pondering" the addition of mental and physical disabilities, including (possibly) the use of wheelchairs and sign language, to The Sims 4. SimGuruGrant stated that, if implemented, the disabilities would probably be "opt in" for players, and would be released as a free update rather than in a purchased pack. For more information about this, please see this post on (Sep 18, 2018)

A family of four ordering at a restaurant in The Sims 4: Dine Out.

A restaurant is a type of location in The Sims series that allow Sims to eat out at community lots without having to cook for themselves. They were first introduced in The Sims: Hot Date, and later reintroduced in The Sims 2: Nightlife and The Sims 4: Dine Out. The Sims 2: Open for Business and The Sims 4: Dine Out allowed Sims to run a restaurant in an owned business, managing its staff, menu, and pricing. In these games, players are able to see inside the restaurant and direct their Sims around as usual once inside.

Restaurants in general consist of at least three employees—a host that seats customers; a server that delivers the food; and a chef that prepares the dishes. The restaurant will also require a podium for the host to be stationed at, a stove for the chef to cook with, and a sink or dishwasher for the servers to wash the dirty dishes in. In Hot Date, restaurants also required a fridge and a preparation surface.

Restaurants appear in The Sims 3 as rabbit hole locations that players cannot see into. Sims can choose to eat at a diner or a bistro; the latter is more expensive, but can trigger events that will not occur at a diner. Players can direct their Sims to stay for dessert after the meal, but otherwise cannot choose what their Sims will order, and cannot see their Sims eating inside the restaurant. However, a venue from The Sims 3 Store, titled the Business as Usual Bistro, features a working restaurant, complete with the ability to assign a chef, set the menu, and decide the opening hours for the restaurant. If a Sim owns the restaurant, they can also profit from it.
