The latest patch for The Sims 4 has added a basement building tool.
Using the new basement tool, you’re able to draw a basement from the floor above easily. Once it’s there, you can begin building with all of the normal build tools, making just about anything you can think of. We’ve had a lot of fun in the past few weeks building different things using the new basements and The Sims 4’s creative tools.
You can build them two levels deep. If you’re not content with simply one level of underground housing, we have you covered. You’re able to build a second level underground as well. This, mixed with the addition of one more floor above ground that’s being added with this free update, brings the new total house size to six floors – double what it was before!
You can delete their ceilings. After you build a basement (or two) you can select the basement block, navigate to ground level, click the yellow highlighted area, and completely remove the ceiling. We’ve had a ton of fun creating everything from underground bunkers to open-air houses that look like giant holes in the ground.
You can put pools in the basements. Who hasn’t wanted to drop into their personal basement pool for a midnight swim? But basements can be even cooler than that. Besides being able to create pools in basements, you’re also able to build pools adjacent to basements. That means a pool can be right up against the side of a basement, and if you make the pool’s walls out of glass, you’re basically making a giant human fish tank.
The patch will automatically download and install the next time you launch the game.
