Be aware that this can happen when you start a new game:

More of the funny haha/strange coincidence side of things but I decided that I would theme my Immortal Dynasty around holidays/spirits which means, you guessed it, getting Father Winter into my household to father Gen 2. I thought this was going to be some kind of romantic love at first sight on Winterfest deal but nope. Turns out Father Winter loves cosplaying as Darth Maul at GeekCon. I was skeptical at first that the dude was the original Father Winter in that game but surprise, he was. So we went from Winterfest Love to Geek Meet and Greet.

Not sure how many people play both The Sims 4 and World of Warcraft, but...
someone recreated Booty Bay, Dalaran, and Darkmoon Faire from WoW into TS4.

As someone who struggles to build a large normal house, I say Whoa!

I have played WoW extensively for years, though I'm not anymore. These builders have done an amazing job. I never liked Dalaran too much, but Booty Bay is awesome and the faire was one of my favorite events and places. Great, now I suddenly miss playing my goblins ;D

The April patch has brought a new way to carry laundry to the washing machine!

I guess being able to change door color is coming "soon"?

Still no patch for the CC issues though :-(

@TomasGrizzly, to change door color/colors in general from build/buy mode, you can use:
The design tool at the top changes the color of objects if you on click it.  The color swatches will come up.  It works on doors, windows, etc, furniture and appliances, etc., but not on paint, etc.  Click that tool again to deselect it.

Very funny laundry pic ;D!

I knew it worked on windows but did not know about doors.

PSA: Father Winter is the alter ego of Llama Man ;D

As for recoloring doors, I've checked, not all can be recolored YET. Those that can't be are the simplest ones (and the tweet I linked hints they'll get more colors in some future patch).

Anyway, a few times, I've sent one of my sims on a jog. When he took a while to return, I found him doing this...


Also, a while ago, I've completely rebuilt the house and created some kind of "romantic corner" to be used for weddings (you've seen how poorly some sims chose where to stand in a screenshot I posted a while ago.

I think the space rocks are a decent touch, but the most important thing is that the guests have no option to choose some weird spot half a level lower than the wedding arch.

On the other hand, the graveyard and observatory in the background are not as good fit.

Not sure if this (the "career") occurred naturally or is the product of a mod...

---
Also, what surprised me a bit was that a sim grabbed a coffee and, instead of using any of the roughly 15 chairs and 5 other sitting-compatible items, she walked to a friggin' bathtub, undressed, and drank the coffee in a bathtub.
M'kay.
No screenshot of that, unfortunately.

I'm glad I could help about what changes color in-game @TomasGrizzly.  Sorry for the late reply. I've been so busy lately.

Also, stay-at-home Mom or Dad is a career that occurs in the game now.

Sims drink coffee, among other things, in weird places ;D!
