The Sims 4 team have released their Laundry List for July 2021 ahead of the upcoming Sims 4: Cottage Living Expansion Pack. The date of the base game update was not announced, however, with the new expansion set for release on 22 July 2021, the update is likely to go live earlier than the usual end-of-the-month release.
Welcome to the Laundry List where we’ll share a list of the top community concerns that we’re currently investigating and hope to have resolved in the upcoming patch.
These concerns were reported by players who help us continue our work of improving the user experience on a regular basis.
Please note that some topics can be tricky and require an extended investigation on our end, so even though we are actively investigating, it’s not a guarantee that we’ll have an immediate fix for it in the upcoming patch.
Also note that this is just a list of the “top” concerns. There are more topics that we saw reported by players that are not listed and being worked on.
So, without further ado, here is a list of the top community concerns we’re currently investigating:
Dried Scales Moodlet Won’t Go Away
Animation to put laundry in washing machine is glitched
Whiskers not showing up on cats in CAP
[PS/XB] Bunny Slope not counting for Extreme Sports Enthusiast

Thanks for all your patience and valuable help! Please continue telling us about any issues you’re experiencing on Answers HQ, we’ll continue to work on improving our transparency, and together we can make this game the best that it can be. Happy Simming!
