How do I enter Neighbourhood build mode

Post by lilyPoo on Thu 30 Oct 2014, 13:12

1. How do I enter a mode where I can just build on a lot without playing one of their stupid sims, like I did in Sims 3?
2. If anyone manages to find a successful way to turn off tutorials please make it a sticky.
3. I hate this game
4. Do you have to click on all the stupid 'you have new content' rubbish every time you load the stupid game?
5. I hate this game

Hi there! Smile

To Build on a lot, just click it and select the second icon that appears on the right if it's a house, or the first if it's a community lot. If you hover over it it should say "Build".
We're still figuring out a way to disable tutorials without Origin. We'll keep you updated with any progress.
Actually, that "You have new content" messages should only appear once, unless you go online in your account and then offline again.

Hello lilyPoo,


Indeed, these "new content" messages should only appear once. They can appear again, for example, when you rename or delete your username-folder "The Sims 4", located in My Documents/Electronic Arts. So when the game creates a fresh "The Sims 4"-folder, upon starting the game next time, you will get the message, but again only once.

If you mean to get those messages all the time, then this is not normal, but at present I don't have an explanation for that. WhatDidUJustCallMe? 

About the game itself...I strongly assume you pirated it ? In that case, you can view it from a positive standpoint: at least you didn't throw out money for it. Very Happy  I actually have a legit game on Origin, and I can't say I like it too much either. It feels like The Sims 2 with better graphics. Personally, I hope they (EA/Maxis) do something about this "locked" neighborhood, so that you can actually walk around more freely, like in Sims 3. This would be my main concern with the game.
