If you've always had an idea for a Stuff Pack for The Sims 4, then now's your time to shine. The Sims 4 announced that it is coming up with a collaborative new project to create the next Stuff Pack

According to a post by SimGuruSarah and SimGuruNinja, today marks an important point for upcoming Stuff Packs and the team is looking at the Sims community to guide the next critical stages of development. According to the post, the development has always been "a collaborative process with input from multiple disciplines that shapes everything we create" and that "by adding your voice and your feedback, we’re going to make a Stuff Pack that represents your desires."

Starting on November 18 at 1:00 PM EST until November 25 at 1:00 PM EST, the Sims team is going to gather votes in order to select not only the theme of the new Stuff Pack, but also potential gameplay ideas. For the first survey, the community gets to choose from five gameplay themes, each offering five possible gameplay features. Players get to rank the theme and then rank the features within these themes. Once the voting starts on November 18, a new section of the forums is going to open that is dedicated to this project.

Overall these are the full schedule of the development stage:

  • Theme and Gameplay Vote
    • Period: November 18, 2019 – November 25, 2019
    • Select the overall theme and potential gameplay features for the pack.
    • This key decision is then going to influence every part of the pack.
  • Art Style Vote
    • Period: December 23, 2019 – January 3, 2020
    • Choose between proposed art styles for the pack which are going to guide our concept artists in the objects and clothing they create.
  • Clothing Style Vote
    • Period: Late January 2020
    • Review concept art of families wearing different styles of clothing and decide on your favorite clothing style.
    • This is going to influence the look of the clothing in the pack.
  • Object Style Vote
    • Period: March 2020
    • Browse through the concept art we’ve drawn for the pack and select your top choices to help us determine which objects to include.
  • Pack Name and Pack Icon Vote
    • Period: April 2020
    • Pick a title that best summarizes the pack's atmosphere and content.
    • You can also peruse different icons and vote on the one that is going to appear in the pack's box art and within the in-game catalog.

Are you excited yet for this chance to help with the new Stuff Pack?
