The Sims announced 2 new kits on their socials today!

The first one is kit #12 and is called The Sims 4: Moonlight Chic.Β

The second one is kit #13 and is called The Sims 4: Little Campers.

Calling all night owls πŸ¦‰ Whether out on the townπŸ’ƒor enjoying time in your backyard⛺️ spend the night under the stars with the new The Sims 4 #MoonlightChicKit or The Sims 4 LittleCampersKit! 😎

I'm personally really excited about the Little Campers kit! But I am curious about Moonlight Chic as well.

Yesterday I posted about "THIS SEASON IT'S LIGHTS OUT"

We finally know what it means and what's going to happen!

The Sims shared a new teaser video on both Twitter and Facebook with the caption "The fun starts when the sun goes down, so seize the night this season πŸŒ‡"

In the teaser video we see a Sim watching television. The Sim is flipping through the channels it seems. First there's a scene with kids sitting on chairs outside, then a female Sim blowing a kiss to the camera, followed by a landscape with rocks, water and the moon shining in the sky, and we can hear howling in the background/ And finally we can see some kind of alley with a shadow moving. At the end there is a test card with Simlish text on it. Then the text "STAY UP" with "IN THE SIMS" below appears on TV. And the thing we really wanted to know "WITH 1 GAME PACK AND 2 KITS" and "COMING MAY/JUNE 2022"

So there you have it. Watch the video yourself below:

What do you think? Was this what you expected? Or did you think it was something else?

I don't know what to make of the scene with the kids. But the one with the lady blowing a kiss reminded me of the matchmaker feature we had in the past somehow. Like a dating service for Sims maybe? I don't know. But I just wouldn't know what else it could refer to. Then the moonlight scene with the howling sounds in the background really made me think of werewolves. And finally the alley? No idea what that means. Also, it clearly says at the end there's going to be one new gamepack and two new kits. Looking at the speculations I would say werewolves would come in a gamepack, like witches in Realm of Magic, which was also a gamepack. And the matchmaker feature could be in a kit, perhaps?

This morning I woke up to The Sims having a new profile pic and cover photo on both Twitter and Facebook. The profile pic has a neon like plumbob, and in between "The" and "Sims" on the cover photo is the same plumbob (but lit up). Below The Sims it says "THIS SEASON IT'S LIGHTS OUT"

I wonder what that's all about?

People in the comments/replies section are speculating it's going to be another refresh, for packs like Outdoor Retreat, Realm of Magic and Get Together. What do you think this is all about?

Here's a little teaser video!

Update! STAY UP in The Sims, an announcement!

So this may seem like a really random post. It's not. I've been part of the EA Game Changer program for a few years now. I am proud to be in that program. Because I've always worked hard on my site and its content. But there are people out there who feel that Game Changers are only saying what EA wants us to say (not true), and that we never criticise the game or suggest "things that people really want" (also not true). Today I am going to write about a feature from The Sims 2 (and also kinda from The Sims 3) that I really miss in The Sims 4.

I'm also hopeful that at the end of this post, you will consider sharing it via social media (the more people share this, the better), and that The Sims studio will hopefully see this post/the collage and consider putting this feature in The Sims 4 in the future.

The Sims 4 has a lot of features we didn't have before. But there are obviously also things missing. Sometimes that's okay. It might be something we don't really miss. But sometimes it's something that we really DO miss. I'm sure a lot of people have forgotten about or don't even know about the existence of COLLECTIONS in The Sims 2 (and later also The Sims 3). So I'm here to remind you: WE HAD COLLECTIONS AND THEY WERE AWESOME!

I've made a collage of screencaps of the Sims 2 UI as you can see above.

Collections in The Sims 2 were both used to group items from packs, as well as themed items. So you would have items from Apartment Life, but also items in the Metro, Gearhead, Bohemian, Socialite, Groovy, Asian, Medieval, Mission, Colonial, Atomic collections et cetera. I know we have categories in The Sims 4, quite a few. And that is awesome and really helpful too. But you can't make your own category in The Sims 4. You can't create your own collection of favourite items in The Sims 4. It would be incredibly helpful if we could!

Think about it.

What if you have a Challenge where Sims players are only allowed to use very specific items? A collection would be so convenient!

For custom content creators and users it would also be such an awesome idea. I personally create a lot of CC items, and many of those items belong to a collection. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have those items together in a collection?

I also feel that the colour filter in The Sims 4 is pretty useful at times. And sometimes it's completely useless because it's lacking specific colours. (Where is aqua/turquoise, teal, mint etc? Those colours aren't blue nor green!) With Collections we could group our own favourite items together, and find them back in one location every time we need them.

Preferably Collections would be added for Build/Buy items (including wallpapers/floors!) but it would also be great for CAS.

In The Sims 2, we could create our own custom Collection icons, which we could then load in the game and use for our custom collections. I really encourage The Sims studio to not only bring back Collections, but to also allow us to load our own external images for it.

I'd also like to see the option to share our collections. I understand the Gallery might not be the best place to share them, especially if we are using custom icons. But it would be great if we could copy the Collection file and put it on our fansites and Tumblrs. That way, we could share Collections for challenges and custom content.

In The Sims 2:

  • You can use the existing Collections from Maxis.
  • You are also able to edit or delete those if you want.
  • You can create new Collections.
  • You can also edit and delete those Collections.
  • You can add more items to Collections.
  • You are able to use icons which came with the game itself.
  • You can also create your own icons and use those in the game.
  • You can share your collections with an audience.

To this day, I use Collections when I play The Sims 2. It is incredibly useful and I'm not sure why this isn't in The Sims 4.

This feature would make the game SO much better. Please consider implementing this back into the game EA/The Sims Studio!

Thanks for reading! Please share (see links below!)

Curious about the new outfits? But don't want to watch long overview videos? Don't worry. Rosie and Wouter are showcasing some of the new outfits here! This is part 4 of "Magical Lookbook - a peek at the fashion in The Sims 4: Realm of Magic, as shown by Rosie and Cheetah"

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

Ohhhh we love a good new outerwear/cold weather outfit! Rosie is showing a new full outfit from Realm of Magic, and it's a lovely coat, what appears to be a sweater and a pair of trousers. She is wearing the steampunk style boots with this, which combines really well!

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

We love a good sweater too! Another great piece to wear during fall/winter. Wouter even likes this sweater. Wow! He's wearing regular jeans and regular black sneakers with the new sweater.

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

We liked this cute dress so much that we made Rosie wear it again, but in a different colour! With some tights underneath and the new sneakers it is the perfect outfit to conjure up some spells. Also, she has these lovely braids with various different colours in there. And while we haven't mentioned it before, she has a lovely celestial face paint which is reflective too. ✨

Finally, here's Wouter again in yet another full outfit. It's a casual outfit consisting of a pair of green trousers, a shirt and a cardigan. He's wearing very specific sneakers underneath which go surprisingly well together!

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

This whole outfit is so cute. Rosie would never wear that in real life. But it is a very cute look. A bit steampunk even! The hairdo is also really adorable. The sheer short sleeve polo shirt makes the top look more classy. The shorts are really shiny, not really Rosie's favourite. Still in combination with the pantyhose and those steampunk boots, she is loving the overall look.

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

Again, not something Wouter would normally wear. But we can all agree it does look very stylish! The trousers are a tad baggy, which we found a bit odd.

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

How cute is that crop top? There are a few more of these with different prints as well, including but not limited to a cartoony black cat! Rosie is wearing a high waisted skinny jeans, and regular white sneakers to complete the outfit. Her hair style is new as well. It's actually not available by default for feminine Sims, but luckily we can just disable that filter and pick any hair we like! Cause let's be honest, doesn't this hairdo look cute?

Β 

The Sims 4: Realm of Magic - A Little Lookbook by Rosie and Cheetah

Wouter and Rosie agreed that this outfit is very Robin Hood like. The sweater, the pants and the boots. It all just matches. You could even call this a medieval style outfit!Β
