The Sims 4 Spa Day Game Pack Announced

A new game pack is coming in July for The Sims 4! Give your Sims some well-earned time off and take them to the spa!

The Sims 4 Spa Day provides an all new type of venue, the Spa, where your Sims can get a relaxing massage or hang out in the sauna. This pack features several interactive objects, including a new massage chair and the mud bath! Another new addition to help your Sims wind down from their daily stress is building their Wellness skill by taking Yoga classes or learning to meditate – the higher their Wellness skill the more Yoga poses they will be able to do, and the more superior Massages they’ll be able to give.



Ownable Cars in The Sims 4

One of the things that some fans have wanted to see in The Sims 4 has been ownable cars. Although Sims now travel by using their smart phone, cars are still a nice touch and still something that has not been added to the game.

If you want your Sims to own a car then look no further as Dark Gaia on ModTheSims has created an ownable cars mod!


My Sims kept getting jealous seeing all those decorative cars driving by their house every day, and so I decided to bring drivable cars back to the game so my Sims could hit the road too. Now with this mod, your Sims can own and drive the very same cars that they see on the road every day. They don’t have to be jealous anymore!

Simply download and install this mod and you’ll be able to own a car and use them to make your Sims travel!

The Irish Times: Fans creating their own soap operas behind the success of ‘The Sims’

I recently participated in an interview with Marie Boran at The Irish Times for an article about how popular The Sims franchise is. That article is now online and you can read it on The Irish Times website!

Sims can die from random meteorite strikes, vampire attacks, folding sofa beds and even too much “Woo-Hoo” (I’m not explaining this; it’s better if you look it up).

The latest release builds on this. Your Sim can literally die from laughing too much: “We also have other emotional-based death types where Sims can die from embarrassment or anger. The player really has to push them into those extreme emotional states though,” explains Sims 4 producer Azure Bowie-Hankins.

Like bored and merciless Gods, fans of the franchise have fond memories of the ingenious ways they killed their creations.

“One time I invited everyone in the neighbourhood around to my Sim’s house.

“Then I removed all doors and watched as the trapped Sims starved to death,” says Dan Willis, university student and manager of popular fan site Beyond Sims, a long-running website that has been in existence since 2000.
