The yard observatory. The goddamn yard observatory. Sims 4 stargazers may have lengthy lamented this different to the collection’ conventional telescope. It’s a garish, hulking factor and appears ridiculous in most conventional builds. Now, almost eight years later, we lastly have a a lot nicer pocket-sized telescope object that really appears to be like regular on a balcony or in a again backyard. Oh, and it may possibly kill you. So there’s that.

The small telescope is a free addition to the bottom game, with a second pocket-sized peeper coming with the Werewolves game pack. Sims can carry it round of their private stock with 9 beautiful colors to select from. It would not fairly have each operate of the yard telescope—understandably, you’ll be able to’t WooHoo inside this one and also you’re unable to nab any of the framed prints—but it surely’s completely able to gazing on the stars or regardless of the hell your neighbours are as much as.

Oh yeah, the demise factor. Using the telescope runs the chance of getting hit by a meteorite. Sims will probably be appropriately warned of any incoming fiery sky rocks, however fail to get them inside in time they usually’ll be clobbered by one. Sims who die by meteorites get a fairly cool-looking ghost that has a tiny meteorite burning inside their chest although.

Along with the demise telescope, the patch has added a brand new curly beard, striped warning wallpaper, and a veil-free possibility for the My Wedding Stories hijab. There are some much less garish variations for the rainbow wedding ceremony clothes now too, which is a welcome different. Long-time Sims followers can even be happy to see a small contact: the return of the “reticulating splines” loading tip. You can learn the complete patch notes right here which I extremely advocate—if solely to see them take the piss out of the observatory a bit.
