Sims 2 Patch Update
A few weeks ago a patch was announced for the Sims 2. Meanwhile a feedback form was posted online with which Maxis investigates bugs and tries to find out what's causing these problems. An update was posted today in which Maxis states that the patch will still take a little while to be done, as Maxis wants to make sure they fully understand the problems and fix them rather than "substitute, misdiagnose, or overlook" them:
"I'm posting to give you an update on the patch. We have a team working hard to get it out to you soon. We want to make sure we understand the issues from all sides, and we don't want to rush out a patch that will only substitute, misdiagnose, or overlook problems the community is having with the game. We are so sorry for all the inconvenience that some of you are having. We know it's frustrating for some, and we know it's only because of the dedication to our games the community has that makes them successful. We'll keep you updated as news becomes available.

"As MaxoidLucky said in the post above, if you can't find a solution to your problem through tech support or by searching the BBS and want to add to our research you can submit your issue through our Feedback Submission Form:


"Thanks for your patience."
Also see the patch thread on the official BBS for more.

What is in the patch, or, I mean, what would it do to my game besides fix various problems, anything? Or is that mainly what it's for? And what problems are they talking about? I have seen some, but to be more specific.....

woot! w00t! w007! \/\/007!!

It will solve technical problems people are having with the game, and other bugs (like the infamous teddybear that gets stuck in Sims, which I assume will be fixed). For several bugs and problems, you might want to check Neil's extra about bugs etc, though this is not a list of bugs that will be fixed in the patch. Such a list will be published by Maxis at a later date.
