Patch 1.34
« on: June 04, 2012, 01:06:07 PM »
Patch 1.34 is released today, already updated but yet to try out the game. Praying it has not affected me in anyway! It's a minor patch, although apparently it has brought us some new Floors/Walls!
 
Quote from:  From the SimsVIP
The update includes the following fixes:
To install this update, please start your game and use the “Updates” tab in your Launcher.
Generations
Lot Names from Generations will no longer show debug text when you uninstall Generations.
Showtime
Fixed an issue where fires created by Unicorns reignite repeatedly after being extinguished.
General Updates
Additional bug fixes and polish to existing features.

This patch is probably to coincide with the fact that tomorrow is the release date of KPST in the US.

It didn't seem that big when I downloaded it -- more like 150 mb.

Builders should be happy: there are new floor, wall, and roof patterns, including thatched roofs.

Wow, EA included alot of stuff in this update!  Looks like three roof patterns, nine wall patterns, three flooring patterns, a couple trees, and I'm not sure about this, two terrain paints.

Hmm... can I have some photos anyone? (Even though I won't be able to test them out since I can't play my game.)

...Is anyone else expecting a new world? :P
Same thing happened with Lunar Lakes, got a patch with wallpapers and trees and stuff.

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

I was in the middle of playing earlier and it crashed suddenly (it doesn't normally at all) and when I went back in there was a patch. It crashed a couple of times in the same way after I installed the patch and then it just stopped and was fine for a few hours. Don't know if it's coincidental timing with the patch or not.

Heck yeah!  :D

I can't wait to use them.

I just went to have a look, I don't know the trees or wall coverings to notice if there's been something added but I know the roofs.

There are 3 new thatches all in very light shades. I'm a bit disappointed, they don't look like any thatches I've seen. They're kind of white, grey and a very pale yellow. The ones I've seen around Kent, UK are nearly black. And I think I've seen some others that are a much darker yellow.  :-\

When I heard 'thatch' I thought of the black ones, and I got excited about being able to do tutor buildings.  :(

I had a good look at the trees and I have no idea which are new.

There are also Superpatches which are a way to force the game to update if it glitches, some people have to use them. Depends where you download the Patch from. Those trees are not new with this patch. All the new stuff is in the second link of my post below:

Oh and I think, the layout of the roof options was a bit different. The ones that aren't available for auto roofing looked to be highlighted in a different colour. Or maybe I'm imagining it.  ::)

I think that was a previous Patch as well. Did you see the link I quoted that has pictures of all the new content?

Yes , but it doesn't have the new concrete wall, and I'm almost certain that came with the update, so I don't really trust it.  Anyways, I removed the picture.

What's KPST?  Also, I made a topic in General Discussion (Sorry!  I didn't think to check in Technical Help!) about the patch, one of the topics should probaly get merged with the other.

KPST is the acronym for Katy Perry Sweet Treats . Like all the Expansions and Stuff Packs (WA: World Adventures and OLs: Outdoor Living Stuff. I didn't check the General Board to see if there was a post there, lol.  ;)

The one at the end of the Miscellenous section, "Industry Standard Concrete Wall". In my pictures it the one all the way to the right.

Apparently the superpatches can solve issues like this, I think I did one once and it did work. By superpatch I mean the major big ones - the 1GB ones. Maybe wait until someone else says something before trying that though.

The one at the end of the Miscellenous section, "Industry Standard Concrete Wall". In my pictures it the one all the way to the right.

Hmm, I don't remember it but then I don't use concrete walls much. Normally just use the yellow wall in the paint section and recolour it to whatever pattern I need. You may be right but I'm not expert on what concrete was there before and after.
