The Sims 4 has just made Create-A-Sim even more inclusive by introducing new features that allows players to customise their Sims with trans-inclusive details, as well as medical wearables.
8 months on from the update where customisable pronouns were added to Create-A-Sim, The Sims 4 has now introduced binders and top surgery scars, on top of hearing aids and glucose monitors.
The new CAS options became available in the latest patch update that was released on January 31st. After updating your game, they should be readily available to add to your Sim. Here's how to find them within the game.

EA also announced that a brand new infant update will soon be made available in March 2023 that allows players to interact more with babies, customise their clothing and give babies more to do than just lay there until they're ready to grow up.
Back in October 2022, EA also revealed the first look at Project Rene, which is believed to be the working title of The Sims 5. While the new game is still quite a few years away from being available to buy and play, it teases a whole host of new customisable tools, as well as a multiplayer option.
