The Sims 4 has had more DLC than any other game in the franchise to date. But with so many packages to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one to buy or which one to prioritize. Expansion pack are different from other packs because they offer more massive, game-changing features like new worlds, systems, and activities, along with typical Create-a-Sim and Build-Buy items.
The lifespan and play value of any package will depend a lot on player preferences, but every plan has its pros and cons. If you’re looking for a starting point, here are the best features from every Expansion Pack released so far.
Going to work: Active career
Start doing Not only does it bring back the classic occupations that are missing from the base game, but it also adds the option to play them actively or passively. Active career is a more involved way to determine the type of employee your Sim will be. It’s great that they actually meet the Sims and build a relationship while they work.
The occupations are scientist, detective and doctor. Retail can also be considered an active profession, but it’s off this list as you’ll get the same effect running Veterinary clinic in Cats and Dogs, or buy a restaurant in Dine Out.
Windenburg is equipped with a few established clubs, but the best chance to get creative comes from doing it yourself. Clubs can be created for any purpose and Sims children and older can join. You can also set entry requirements like occupation, relationship status or skills, and there’s even an option to make your club invite-only.
Perform enough of your chosen club actions and you’ll get club perks ranging from flags and posters to secret handshakes and greetings. In addition, clubs with a good reputation will have more social influence.
Living Cities: Festivals
Alas, the apartment is not the best feature in The Sims 4: City Living, because they function essentially like any other house. You can’t have apartments in different worlds, and you can’t add apartments from the library without removing all the front doors. You can’t even have a roommate until Discover University.
However you maybe attend festivals from any world and they really tend to be overpopulated. The City Living Festival adds a variety of culturally specific items including food and clothing, and offers new activities that are often overlooked. Plus, the new death of Pufferfish Ngiri, a food found at festivals, remains one of the best.
Cats and dogs: Pets
Between There are pets in the game againand the super detailed Create-a-Pet feature lets you (sort of) create animals like raccoons and foxes, you can customize your pets like never before. That softens the blow of just having cats and dogs.
Pets even have Obsessions and quirks, which can affect how they react to specific items.
The vet clinic is one of those features that are sometimes better on paper than in the game (it can be hard to get to level 5), but letting the pet get sick and actually see the vet Veterinarians add a sense of authenticity to pet ownership.
The sections themselves are fun, but they don’t transform the gameplay in the same way that Calendar does. Calendar allows you to add or change Holidays and events, check the weather (including temperature and weather alerts, like Heatwaves), and even track your Sim’s birthdays and work or school schedules.
Existing holidays can be easily changed or deleted (a useful tool to have if you want to change the Section Length often, as that sometimes messes up all the pre-set holidays) and easily create new holidays. Set all the parameters and Sims will be prompted to join the event as it spins around.
Fame: Fame System
Fame System super detailed in Make Famous and it’s great that it works on multiple packages meaning you can earn reputation for almost anything. Perks and Quirks are reminiscent of the things Vampires and Spellcasters use to define their Supernatural personalities, and the system makes it fun and easy to create different types of celebrities.
Reputation is a factor too, with Good and Bad reputations unlocking their own levels on the Celebrity Privileges system – plus there are plenty of other opportunities available to Sims for just about anything. convince.
Living Island: Sulani
The Sims 4: Island Living added some little features that really liven up the game; Quirky jobs, mermaids (maybe a bigger feature), and new events and neighborhood dynamics. However, in the world of Sulani is the most beautiful model of this woman.
The world is already gorgeous, but a career in Conservation allows players to really see Buy Pel’am progress as they scavenge to make the island beautiful again. Outside of business hours, all the new activities – snorkeling, boating, diving, jet skiing, beach visits, and more – make this place truly amazing.
Explore a university: Attend a university
Part of what makes the university system great is the sheer number of contiguous features it comes with. A beautiful world, two different bases good interactions with each other, clubs and extracurricular activities, and even a roommate system. A lot of the features in this package are features Simmers wants with other packages, which makes it feel very interesting. Plus, Discover University has (mostly) improved on previous university-style systems.
The Distinguished and Regular Degree is new, as are the many clubs your Sims can join, with implications for their graduate life. Sims of all ages from Youth to Seniors can attend University and you can attend as many times as you want. Students also have various types of assignments.
Eco Lifestyle: Eco-friendly objects
While New Eco Lifestyle crafts have environment-specific spins, their play value applies to multiple Sims in any given world. Eco Lifestyle has added a lot of new eco-friendly equipment that is perfect for off-grid gaming, like dew collectors and solar panels. Plus, even the walls and floors affect your ecological footprint right now.
Eco-friendly Sims can not only save water or electricity; They can also save money on their bills by collecting their own resources. Of course, there are off-grid options that are less eco-friendly (like fuel-powered generators), so even going off-grid Sims can affect the industrial eco-marker .
Snowy Escape: Lifestyles
Sims gain Lifestyles through their habits and routines, which makes them feel much more organic as these are unique to each Sim. A Sim can only have three lives at a time, but they can change or decay pretty quickly, depending on what your Sims do with their time. They can also be changed via a potion from the Rewards Store, so there’s a good mix of organic development and player control.
Different lifestyles have various effects on Sims, including increasing or decreasing skill and friendship gains, good skills, new chat opportunities, and even increased job performance.
Life in the Small House: Cattle Breeding
Cottage Living has a lot of animals into the experience. Chickens, cows, and llamas are the big three that you can keep as livestock, in new Barn and Barn items that can be placed right on your plot.
You can bond with your animals, collect produce (eggs, milk and wool, respectively) and display them in competitions to win exciting prizes. You can even feed the animals snacks, which can change their color. Animal products can also be used for new packaging-related activities: wool is necessary for cross-stitching, and eggs and milk are great for cooking, especially with lots of new simple living challenges.
If the Pokemon Unite model continues, Vanillixe might be out soon
