Week of September 6, 2015

Whoa! Seems like August just started yesterday and all of a sudden we're in September! Time flies by so quickly, it makes you realize just how short life really is...

...well, fortunately for you, your Sim's lifespan is much, much shorter than yours, so at least they'll be dead before you even hit retirement! ...unless you're already retired, that is.

Patch 24

It's time to get out your first aid kit and get patching! Patch notes are available here. Always remember to uninstall all mods and custom content before installing the patch, and to run the game at least once without your mods and custom content after installing the patch.[1]

The Sims 4's first anniversary!

September 2 is the first anniversary of The Sims 4! Time sure flies by... I keep thinking it was released just yesterday!

Anyways, during that time, 93 million Sims were created. 93 million! That's more than the populations of Tokyo, New York City, São Paulo, Seoul, and Mexico City combined! EA released an infographic about all the geek details, which you can read on the right (click to enlarge).

The Sims Wiki News
Wikia and personal Javascript collide

Recently on Wikia, you may have heard about a recent security issue involving the use of customized Javascript, in which a number of accounts were compromised. As a security measure, Wikia Staff disabled all editing of CSS and JS pages (including personal ones), and all pages in the MediaWiki namespace (normally only editable by administrators). As time has passed, more and more pages in the MediaWiki namespace, as well as all CSS pages, have been reopened for editing. However, everything else, including JS, is still locked.

Recently, Wikia now requires that all users wishing to use personal Javascript must enable it in their user preferences. When the "Enable personal JavaScript" option is ticked, anything you have in your personal JS files will load; if it isn't ticked, it simply won't load.

Currently, community JS files (such as MediaWiki:Common.js), as well as most other pages in the MediaWiki namespace, still cannot be edited. We at The Sims Wiki unfortunately have no control over this issue.

The initial thread regarding this issue can be found here. An update to the issue that revealed Wikia's plan for the future can be found here.

Had a great August? We're happy to hear! Unfortunately, if you're in the Northern Hemisphere, that means your summer break is over and it's back to being frozen in the depths of winter again. But hey, winter's just an angel in a demon's clothes. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 23:33, September 6, 2015 (UTC)
