The Latest Sims 4 Patch Stops Sims Teleporting Up the Stairs

The Sims 4

Seen your Sim teleporting from one floor to another instead of using the stairs? The latest patch for The Sims 4 should fix that.

No, your Sim hasn’t developed new telekinetic powers. It seems there was a glitch in the Matrix The Sims 4‘s code which meant some sims would refuse to use the stairs when directed to move to a room on the floor above. The latest patch – Version 1.46 on console and on PC – fixes this issue, and adds a couple of new things into the game.

The latest patch to Sims 4 is a very small one – the stair usage problem is the main issue it has fixed. However, it also adds a brand new piece of art to the game, which you can purchase from Build mode.

You can see the artwork in the picture atop this post. It’s called ‘Hair Vision’ and it’s by the artist Ohni Isle. It’ll brighten up any Sims home, adding a gorgeous dash of colour – and a whole lot of style – to your decor. You only need the base game to be able to purchase it in-game.

You can see the full patch notes on the official The Sims 4 forum by clicking here. But we’ve pretty much covered it all.
