Sorry for a late weekly news blog this time but a few things things got in the way which held me up a bit. Though I expect you'd want to hear some more about the recent release of pools (see below).
The Sims news
We have pools!
Finally we have pools for The Sims 4 and this brand new update is free and available through your Origin account.
As always with pools, you can drown your Sims and their ghost appears blue while leaving puddles to form everywhere. Unlike other ghosts in The Sims 4, these ones do not change colour with emotions, just to let you know.
While Sims can now exercise, muck around, and calm themselves down in a swimming pool, they will also be able to pee in them. Other Sims will get the "Uncomfortably Warm" moodlet too which in my opinion is pretty funny. Sims will also be able to sit on the edge of a pool and that's something never before seen in previous games.
Swimming pools aren't just restricted to the ground anymore too, since now you'll be able to build pools on any floor of a house or public building you're creating or editing. You can also place windows on the walls of pools and even adjust the depth of your pools by adjusting wall heights.
As with other parts of the new and improved build mode, you have more flexibility in terms of creating different angles (yes, that means diagonal pools) and curves on the edges of your architectural creations. Sadly there is no diving boards or pool slides so maybe they might return in a future update or something.
If you're interested in writing the weekly news, then why don't you sign up! We're always looking for more people to help.
Next month brings the return of more careers for The Sims 4 in a new update so pick which ones you'd like to see most.

That's it for this week and if you'd like to give some feedback or compliments/complaints then do so on my talk page or in the comments section. Goodbye for now and have a nice week! Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:51, November 10, 2014 (UTC)
