Want to keep customers out of the back room of your Sim’s retail store? Want to lock the door to your Sim’s room so they can crank up the music and have a dance party for one? Want gender-specific changing rooms in your gym? Boot up The Sims 4 and you’ll be able to download an Update to the game that’ll let you do just that! Locked doors are coming to The Sims 4, and they’re going to be free* for everyone who downloads the Update. They’ll be joined by half walls, which will let you divide areas while still keeping them open and modern.
Half walls were exciting to work on, too. Most of the time, we’ve seen players asking for them to put around their counters, so we absolutely included a size that works for that. But we also wanted to allow for more creativity, so we added four additional sizes, bringing the total number of half wall sizes to five.
The three medium heights give you a range of options for living room dividers, borders for stoves and counters, or eye-level spots to hold fancy decorations. They’re also a handy place to put your drink! We also added a low (1-1/2’ height) wall that works great as an architectural border piece, as well as a tall wall that can be used to make enclosed spaces within rooms, especially when using taller full-height walls. Half walls are super easy to place, too – if you’ve ever put a fence down in The Sims 4, you already know how to build a half wall.
The Update is now available, so get ready to start building half walls and locking doors – and don’t forget to share your new creations on The Gallery when you do!
