The 21st update to The Sims 4 is now out. Among bugfixes and introducing minor features, Update 21 introduced "half walls" and door locking to TS4.
The half walls are expanded upon from TS2 and TS3. There are now 5 different heights of half walls, ranging from short to tall. Sims can communicate to other Sims on the other side of a half wall (much like a fence or railing). Half walls can be painted with any wall pattern, just as regular walls can. Half walls can also hold wall-mounted objects and even windows, a first for half walls in the series.
Possible new Compilation Pack/"bundle" coming this month
SimsVIP has uncovered The Sims 4 Game Bundle listed for sale on several online retailer websites. The price given right now for the bundle is 40 Euros, and the bundle is said to include Spa Day, Luxury Party Stuff, and Perfect Patio Stuff. You can read more about this on SimsVIP.com. Please keep in mind that, for the moment, this bundle is still not officially confirmed by Maxis/EA.
The Sims Wiki News
More information needed on Spa Day
As I mentioned above, Spa Day is set to be released this week. Yet, if you look at the Spa Day article, you'll see that it's just a stub, with barely two paragraphs of text and next to no information about the pack or what's in it. If you've been following the development of Spa Day, please take a few minutes to add information to that article (be sure to cite your sources). Additionally, other articles on the wiki related to Spa Day might also be in need of brushing up, or relevant articles for pack objects or features might need to be created.
Help us tame our list of unused files and images
The Sims Wiki has a policy related to images and files uploaded here, which requires that files be used once uploaded or else they can be deleted. Despite this policy, we currently have hundreds of files on the wiki that are not used anywhere. These files could be used on our articles, but many of them have been forgotten and may be deleted unnecessarily as a result. Please take some time to look through the list and help us find a home for these orphaned images!
