As you’re likely to know, The Sims 4 City Living expansion pack released today and will be available for our UK friends in two short days. The drop of new content is a prime time to kick up a new story or even evolve your ongoing legacy into a new chapter. Sims move to the city for many reasons. For some, it’s an excuse to get busy with their careers. For others, the hustle and bustle
Sims move to the city for many reasons. For some, it’s an excuse to get busy with their careers. For others, the hustle and bustle brings them to life. But walking to the beat isn’t always easy and what’s a story without a little bit of conflict? Here are some ideas to jump start your City Living SimLit.
Rags to Riches Runaway
Not everyone was blessed with a pocketful of Simoleons. But for your Sim, even the large estate or penthouse didn’t satisfy what they needed. Whether it was to prove a point to themselves or others, now they are alone on the streets. With some advice from performers and finding thrown away treasures scattered across the city, maybe your Sim can find their own place in the world that doesn’t have that strange rotting smell. Either that or fall flat as the city around them moves ever onward.
Pandering Politician or Aspiring Activist
In City Living, there is the new Politician career that tests your Sims’ mettle with the ultimate choice. Starting out helping with good causes, it’s easy for a Sim to lost their purpose along the way. Fighting tooth and nail to make the world a better place can quickly skew into the corrupt. Will your Sim end up beating the system and standing for what they believe in despite the need for funding?
Social Media Simselfies
The world is always moving and always changing. For your Sim, this means capturing as much of it as possible. Nomadic in nature, your Sims’ camera is their prized possession and the world is a canvas of art. In the city, there is an opportunity to share that art from the streets to the computer. But who would have honestly thought that building a following would be so hard? Now it’s up to your Sim to share their art of the world to the world, and maybe even make Simoleons doing what they love.
A Little Bit of Country
We’ve all heard the saying, “You can take the Sim out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the Sim.” That holds true for the Willow Creek natives that are used to their traditional homes and rural neighborhoods. Sure, there are a few odd personalities (although we won’t mention any names) that cast a dark shadow on the otherwise vibrant slice of land. Otherwise, Willow Creek leaves a lasting impression on its residents with simplicity and space. Alas, nothing lasts forever and a sudden change in location is bound to be a culture shock to our more straw-hatted Sims. Will the strong will of country Sims find their groove in San Myshuno or will the city vibe beat them into submission?
