You Can Now Make Your Sim Put on a Binder
The Sims is intended for serve everyone on gender spectrum. The Sims 4’s newest expansion pack includes a variety of realistic medical accessories that players may use to express their characters’ authentic trans identities. Now your Sim may wear binders and shapewear and brag about cosmetic surgery on their bodies.
Hearing aids come in fifteen different colours in The Sims 4, and both young and elderly Sims may use glucose monitors.
EA made the changes public in a blog post, highlighting the new and exciting addition of light switches to the game’s construction mode.
Personalization of your character, however, is the major emphasis of the upgrade. The new Medical Wearables subcategory under Body and Face Accessories allows players to equip their Sims of any age with devices like hearing aids and glucose monitors, as well as Top Surgery Scars for Sims of a certain age. Binders and shapewear are also available to Sims as Underwear options.
Some users, however, have reported that the new features’ functionality is not quite there yet.
Others have praised the update for its increased accessibility, especially for players with disabilities or who identify as transgender, and for the addition of light switches.
The Sims has always been a safe space for the LGBTQ community because of the inclusion of same-sex relationships within the gameplay from the very beginning in 1999, although by mistake when a programmer reimplemented the feature after the makers had already removed it.
Players have petitioned for the possibility to use nonbinary pronouns, and EA has now implemented this change.
