The Sims News
Cool Kitchen Stuff

Last week, I mentioned a rumor about Cool Kitchen, which was rumored to be the next game pack. Well, it turns out that I was half-right; The Sims 4: Cool Kitchen Stuff was officially announced this week! As the name implies, this stuff pack will pack lots of new stuff for your kitchens. To read more about it, including some (literally) cool new features, check out Nikel's CKS announcement blog.

Additionally, EA has announced that dishwashers are coming back, via a free game update this week. Keep an eye on our list of recent updates to see when this has been implemented.

Update - The Sims 4 at Gamescom

SimsVIP has reached out to EA, regarding The Sims 4's presence at Gamescom 2015, which starts this week in Germany. According to EA, TS4 will have a behind-closed-doors presence at the convention, and will be covered during EA's press conference on August 5th.

SimsVIP will be at Gamescom and will also bring live coverage of the EA press conference. Be sure to keep track of SimsVIP on Twitter for the latest Gamescom news.

Resolved discussions

In the past week, two significant discussions have been resolved. First, due to decreased activity and involvement from the community, Fanon Battles have been indefinitely suspended. If you have any ideas for new fanon-related activities, please leave suggestions on the community discussions forum. The community has also decided overwhelmingly to support anonymous editing on The Sims Wiki, and to oppose any attempts to disable editing by unregistered users.

Important discussions

As always, we have discussions going on in the community discussions forum that need your input! We've had more involvement in these matters in the past few weeks, but we still have many questions that need to be resolved. Among them are:

As always, if you have a matter that should be considered by the community at large, please do not hesitate to start a new thread.
