    AHHHHHHHHHH! We have gotten SO much news today. I made a whole separate video on the update that I'm going to post tomorrow (otherwise this video would be an hour long lol) but if you wanted to read the patch notes and see what came in the update today: forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/1006136/more-fixes-more-new-content-and-more-console#latestnews

      @GardenOfEd They could probably do prosthetics without changing animations much if at all. Also maybe small casts.

    • GardenOfEd
      GardenOfEd Month ago +39

      I hope for other mobility aids as well! Canes, walkers, forearm crutches... I know they'd have to redo animations, but frankly? They have the money and resources to do it.

  • Eggadoodle
    Eggadoodle Month ago +103

    I work in childcare (specifically the one year old room) and oh my god the way they animated the kids crawling and wobbling moving and everything is so spot on, I was absolutely floored
    also when they all started screaming at the party it was like a horrible flashback to when I first started at my job 😭😂

  • Paige

    Now we really need pre-teens! That would be the icing on the cake. Cause I come across a lot of times where I don't want a kid or a teen, but I want a pre-teen.

    The thing I've got actually VERY excited about is that they FINALLY found a host who KNOWS HOW TO HOST. Like... I've felt her joy and excitement through the screen. I felt like she IS a simmer. Most of the time during livestreams I got bored to death because the gurus did not seem able to be the first people actually excited about the game. She's a keeper

    • Nirax
      Nirax Month ago +2

      @Anna Reed thanks, both of you! That's really good to know and so interesting - in Germany it's totally different because it's such a heavily gendered language, we have binary gendered terms for *everything* and used to only use the male ones as a standard (meant to include all genders) for practical reasons but studies showed that this use of language erased everyone but men from people's thinking so now we're trying to agree on another standard to include all genders and ofc it's a heavily heated debate... I wish we at least had a singular non-gendered pronoun like "they/them", but we don't :c anyway, I'll keep in mind to avoid gendered terms in English from now on, thanks!

    • Anna Reed
      Anna Reed Month ago +2

      @Nirax yeah at least with progressive English speakers, we're trending away from using gendered words like hostess, actress, waitress, seamstress, etc.

    • RedLionKNC
      RedLionKNC Month ago +2

      @Nirax It’s a bit of both of for simplicities sake and because of the connotations, I feel. It definitely really depends on who you ask. For the most part, on the internet at least, you’d more often find non-gendered use of most terms

    • Nirax
      Nirax Month ago +1

      She is amazing!! I have a question for native English speakers though: I always thought the female equivalent of host was hostess. Is that something else entirely, is it just not used to make things simpler or is it a dated word that has sort of sexist connotations nowadays and you shouldn't use it anymore if you want to be respectful? Thanks in advance!

    • amethystangel228
      amethystangel228 Month ago +2

      I think part of why they did it this way is also that having it pre-filmed and then just having the video posted avoids a lot of the issues they were having when they livestreamed. She's great and I hope she sticks around for the long haul!

  • mollycatrin
    mollycatrin Month ago +345

    What I loved about toddlers in the sims 2 and 3 is that they needed help. Toddlers in the sims 4 can do everything themselves except for bathing. They can technically get food if you open the fridge and drag a plate out, they can play and even put themselves to bed. With infants you actually need to take care of them. Which makes me so excited!

    • Amy Wilson
      Amy Wilson Month ago +3

      They can’t use the potty until level 2 someone has to teach them

    • Heltsuki
      Heltsuki Month ago +22

      If you use the food display thing from Get To Work, you can just make the food and leave it there, it won't spoil and the toddlers can pick it up from there without the player intervening, but I agree with you tho

  • Gabriella Custodero

    Don't get me wrong, I really love the upcoming infants update. However, I am BEYOND thrilled and honestly in tears with the sims having different thing for disabilities and conditions. I never knew how much I wanted to have diabetic items for my sims until now, and it honestly feels so great to know that many many people, including myself, will get some representation in the sims like this 🥺

  • Synthetic Goth

    The last couple of minutes of this video made me cry! My spouse is trans & they often listen to me watch your videos. You have always been so incredibly supportive of the LGBTQ+ community & they make comments about how awesome you are.
    This new update finally allows my sweet spouse to display their top surgery scars on their sim. Thanks for bringing attention to it & even putting focus on it ♥️🌈

    • jcw

      this is how i feel :) i found this channel in my recommended and thought, ok cool, i like sims. but seeing how Kayla speaks KINDLY and OPENLY about LGBTQIA+ people **particularly us trans people** makes me so happy. and also to see/hear disabilities be talked about as a fact of humanity that should be represented instead of some unspeakable curse is incredibly comforting :')

  • Junk Mail (BroccoliAndCheese)

    The BIRTHMARKS!! I really hope this update also comes with birthmarks for other life stages, and stuff like smaller body scars, surgery scars and vitiligo.

  • ⭑ gigisaviators !! ◡̈ -roadto300 -dead channel

    Imagine if the infants have little walkers, and there could maybe be something almost like a skill, and when they become toddlers they could have a movement skill!

    • Chele
      Chele Month ago +1

      And I’ve learned something new today. I’ve never heard of infant walkers. Though I have seen like those bouncy swing/chair things…and play mats with mobiles. Hopefully there will be some infant-specific toy/furniture beyond the crib. 🤞🏻
      Toddlers already have a movement skill to learn to walk better, but it would be fun if infants have a similar movement skill for crawling/sitting up

      @French Fries "I turned out okay so it's fine" and "everything is unsafe so we shouldn't bother with not using dangerous things" are not actually good arguments. Lots of things Are unsafe for babies, and it's a parent's job to not allow those things around their child. Just because you didn't have lasting damage from it doesn't mean another kid won't.

    Disability and visual difference coming to the sims, so so happy. I honestly thought we would just be ignored like in the real world and pretend we don't exist because it's "easier". So happy to have hearing aids and glucose monitors today, and birth marks i saw in the baby video, that's amazing. FINALY!!

      @A.B. not wanting anxiety to be in the game is different than having an aid that represents you in the game

    • A.B.
      A.B. 29 days ago

      @Mitchie if it’s an escape why do you want your daily struggles in a game. I don’t ask for my anxiety to be in the game

    • Mitchie
      Mitchie 29 days ago

      @A.B. the sims is an escape for a lot of us and we like living as ourselves in the game. What about people who have to use wheelchairs and canes for example? It makes no sense to have everyone walking in a life simulator game. We should be able to have different types of people. It might just be a game to you but to some of us it means a lot more.

    • A.B.

  • Nightfire-613
    Nightfire-613 Month ago +7

    Better disability and trans representation has got me even more hyped than the infants NGL. My dad wears hearing aides, so, gonna be adding those to his simself, and while I don't personally know anyone who uses glucose monitors/patches, I'm so glad that they were also part of this update! My only complaint is that the "top surgery" scars are exclusive to male assigned sims, like women and femme nonbinary people don't also get breast alterations/removals. My grandma had breast reduction due to back pain, and a former family friend had a complete double mastectomy (full removal of both breasts) due to cancer, they both have scars similar to the new ones and they're both cis women. Like even though I'm AFAB and use a female assigned sim for my simself I am non binary, and have looked into top surgery to be more gender affirming. I love the fact that there is more trans rep in the form of gender affirming surgery scars, particularly as someone who is considering getting top surgery, but the fact that it's locked behind the arbitrary category of "male" when other people also get surgeries that result in the same scars or maybe get that same surgery, but don't identify as male in any way, seems kinda nonsensical.

  • spxrkle
    spxrkle Month ago +4980

    You guys do realize that infants aren’t that small irl right? They are literally about 2 sizes smaller than toddlers, so the sims team did a decent job portraying that through the game. Infants start growing rapidly around 3 months and by 6 months are huge😭 you can tell they’re a little bit smaller than the toddlers

      I mean we can agree to disagree. As a parent to an almost 1 year old who hit milestones pretty early, and an aunt with 10 niblings. I'm pretty confident in what I'm saying. Toddlerhood starts at 1 year regardless if they're are walking or not. (:
      Also, if you quote something you should cite it.

    lol at me being neutral (positive) for the entire announcement series only for the excitement to ramp up at medical accessories, top surgery scars, and binders. TBH I half expect I'll end up quick-aging infants the way I already do babies (*cannot* deal with crying) but the inclusion of an entire new *CAS category* makes me a little hopeful they plan to expand those in the future. I've had a CC hearing aid in my game for a long time, glad to see one available to all :>

    Yeah totally, disability representation is so great. I remember when I was like eleven I wanted to make all of my family and our houses in the sims. My granny had to have her legs amputated due to an illness and it felt so wrong to make her with legs, so I just stopped playing in that save all together. Wheelchair and amputee representation would be really tricky to do with animations and stuff but it would make so many people overjoyed.

As much as I’ve came to love sims 4 I think they’ll do what they did with the 3 to 4 transition when it comes time from 4 to 5, they’ll let 4 get glitchy and just not fun anymore. Aswell as they’ve put SO much work into 4 and really cash grabbed it’ll be a little frustrating like always .

      @Alice Trevor i do think theyve said before theyve been working on various mobility aids for sims but itll take a while because its a big change. seeing the update with dex coms and hearing aids today gives me hope that maybe we'll get them soon!! i want my sims to have a matching cane to me😭

    I really hope the toddler clothes conversions means they’ll have also added infant clothes to past packs with more conversions. Can you imagine them in the wolf onesie? But that may be too much to ask…

    I feel fine with the news. I don't mind waiting until March for infants. It'll be here before we know it. And I assume they'll touch up more stuff between now and then. And the update was great! More Trans representation, glucose monitors and hearing aids!!! LOVE IT! I'm all for getting CAS objects (and hopefully new traits soon) to create more diverse sims. Give us wheelchairs and canes next!

    When I saw the baby announcement WITH a date, I literally screamed out loud. I am so EXCITED for this. I've only been playing Sims 4, for four years but I have every pack, except some of the kits. The babies needed updating or made better from the beginning and now they will be better. It's so exciting, especially since they will no longer be stuck in a crib once they age into infants. This is so exciting. I l ove all the animations for the babies I'm seeing, the clothes, etc and I'm also excited about this new family they have coming to the Sims game. I hope when infants do drop, they will also include strollers so you can take babies for a walk. This is so awesome. Judging by the family they're going to introduce, the pack will probably be not long after infants drop because she's holding an infant so we probably don't have to wait too long. I am with you. I want this right now. It's so hard to wait but it'll be worth it I'm sure. I hope they select you in the future for testing the Sims 5, that would be cool.

    i love that we're probably going to get the ability to make baby food, that one shot at 7:31 with the pop up in the corner makes me think that. also we don't have chickpeas so i wonder how we're going to make hummus

    I love that they are doing live streams similar to Minecraft live where it is like interview style meeting the people working on it and showing little clips to get us excited!

  • Sasha Denae
    Sasha Denae Month ago +1

    I wonder if they'll keep adding more health related content? I'd like to see c-section scars! With the introduction of so much family and baby content recently, I feel like those would fit right in with what they've been working on.
    I also suspect ostomy bags will be the next medical wearables! I just think those are more difficult since they might be deciding if they'll make them 3D like in real life, and if so, how to make them interact with clothing without clipping or warping. Hopefully we get them soon!

  • Alain Martel
    Alain Martel Month ago +2

    At least, we have a date for the infant arrival. Wouldn't be surprised if it get delayed a few days, as it's a pretty BIG update.
    Looks like they used real peoples and motion capture to make a good part of the animations. At least, for the older Sims.

    Edit 1: "freeing the babies" I don't know man the 100 baby challenge about to be different frfr 😭
    2: ok I'm dead ass crying they added helmets for them and aweee I can't I love that

  • CheapKetoCanuck
    CheapKetoCanuck Month ago +1284

    HELMETS for infants! Such a common thing I'm glad they chose to include them! A good friend of mine had twins and they both ended up needing them and I know it can be such a point of shame for new parents and it shouldn't be! And the bear suit. The beeaaaar suit. Ahhh!

    • Marlopoly

      @Awkward Manatee Is that an american thing? I've never heard of a helmet for babies, and generally most people I know do have weird bits on their head.

      @Awkward Manatee Thank you, but what's the point of shame?

    • Cheshiregrinn
      Cheshiregrinn Month ago

      @RhaeLT While the skull plates start to fuse when a child is around 2 years old the helmets are usually for younger children because the helmet is meant to shape the skull plates in the right position BEFORE they fuse together. Helmets on actual toddlers are probably for actual protection of the head. I assume since they are learning to walk and could potentially fall into furniture etc.

    • Awkward Manatee
      Awkward Manatee Month ago

      @Pigeon often they need helmets because they sleep on one certain spot which causes their still soft and developing skull to form misshaped. It can in most cases be avoided by using a donut pillow with a newborn which keeps their head shaped well. But some children will need them regardless

    • Cheshiregrinn
      Cheshiregrinn Month ago

      @Amber B. My cousin needed one as a baby but with him it was because his skull got a bit of a weird shape from the birth because the skull plates aren't merged yet so the helmet made sure the plates grew together in the right shape.

  • Clara Prado

    Honestly infants is so fun bc it makes me excited that maybe they will add other stages of life like preschoolers and preteens, right now I just feel like my sims grow up way too fast and I'd love to have more time bonding with them. The teens look 15-18, the children look like they are around 7-9, and the toddlers look 2-4, I'd love to see the in between stages of all of that and maybe smaller, transition life stages where we get to see them go to preschool for a shorter time, make some truly terrible drawings in the drawing table and full, huge towers with the building blocks or even castles and houses, maybe they'd be able to go in the pool with help or only swing with an adult pushing them. Preteens could start having outbursts, maybe have whims to wear makeup or listen to pop, maybe feel embarrassed to be playing on playgrounds but still want to play every once in a while etc. This could even end up giving us more traits like we had in the sims 3 since they have more life stages!

  • Evora The Sylvurr

    I can absolutely relate to the "I got emotional thinking about how important it will be to [others]" bit. When I saw the infant with vitiligo I was like "BASE GAME VITILIGO?" and went back to make sure I wasn't seeing things. I paused for a couple seconds while tearing up because, while I don't have vitiligo, nor do I know anyone with vitiligo, I know for a **fact** that this addition will be important for a lot of people.

    i literally cried when Kayla talked about the medical add-ons. My mom has type 1 diabetes which limits the things she can do and also shortens her life which devastates those around her including me. It is so amazing that a game is finally adding a glucose monitor. I hope this will at least spread a little more awareness of diabetes and hearing loss. ☺

    It would be cool if meet the family could also mean a new family of townies for the base game. I think base game townies with stories is also a really cool thing they can add to the game. New lore would be fun to dig into!

    • Scoodlywoo
      Scoodlywoo Month ago +1

      I agree, I think preteen to teen will be fun and more like real life like young adult to adult, I image a young adult is like in the 20's to early 30's and adult is late 30's - 40's and then there's elder

    • Revas
      Revas Month ago +8

      I think simply adjusting the teen's heights would make them feel a lot more like an in-between stage. they're the same height as adults now, which just makes them look like young adults, but thinner.

      AchiKat Month ago +8

      I've felt like that too. When they age up to teen, they look like adults. Then when they age up to young adults there's pretty much no change. Most of the time, I give them a complete makeover when they age up to young adults so it feels like they actually aged up.

      froginatub Month ago +41

      @Hooked by Crafting you can do them on either frame, but only on male sims. Which is a bit of a shame for what Cait is talking about with the option for women who have had mastectomies, but I believe the focus is on gender-affirming scars (which I am excited about as someone who had gender-affirming top surgery myself!) but I hope they add more surgical scars too!
