David Stonecipher

Create custom restaurants, manage them, or take Sims out for a night on the town with the latest game pack for The Sims 4. The "Dine Out" game pack gives players the power to run their own restaurants or simply visit them. Build a new establishment from the ground up or pick up a new restaurant from the Gallery to get started.

"Your household finances are distinct from your business finances. Be sure to click the Transfer Funds button in the Ownership panel to secure some simoleons for your business. This money will be needed to purchase furniture, pay for advertising, and cover staffing costs. You'll need to put money down if you want to earn big long term!"
"You'll need to watch your staff in action to know how things are going. If you cannot tell from their behavior, look at the reactions over the heads of your customers. They will gain or lose stars, based on how well your staff is performing. Be sure to scold staff when they're out of line, or invest in teaching them new skills to prevent a repeat. If some staff members are truly unruly, drop the hammer and show them the door!"


The Sims 4 continues to update with free updates and paid packs like "Dine Out" regularly. Although "Dine Out" is the latest game pack, a stuff pack themed for child Sims is announced and the most recent free update drastically changed the Create-A-Sim engine. As the Inquisitr reported, the current update lets players customize Sim genders and opens up 700 items to all Sims rather than being restricted to either male of female Sims. Customizing a gender lets players select new preferences for how a Sim goes to the bathroom and whether or not they can become pregnant, for instance. The patch also adjusted some lighting issues, fixed a few general issues, and more. Head over to EA.com for the full list of notes including past updates.
