Wee houses are coming to The Sims 4 later this month, and I could just eat them all up. The Tiny Living Stuff Pack will let you build—and furnish—myriad micro-houses for your Sims.
EA dropped the news about the Stuff Pack earlier today on Twitter. The idea is to "Think big, build small" while you build the micro-home of your Sims' dreams. Real world micro-homes are complete living spaces that don't climb above 500 square feet. In Simland measurements, micro-homes register at 100 tiles or less. Like the real thing, they're engineered to be cozy, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. You'll also be able to free up more real estate for your garden.
Obviously, micro-homes don't play well with sprawling couches and king size beds, which is why the Tiny Living Stuff Pack is equipped with tons of tiny furniture options. Of particular note is the "Murphy bed," a bunk that folds up during the day to double as a shelf. You might already recognize Murphy beds from the crazy shenanigans they instigate whenever hapless cartoon characters try to put them away. Rest assured your Tiny Living Murphy bed is likewise equipped to destroy your Sim if they don't recite the proper incantations while folding it away.
Unrelated to living in small houses but very related to our current winter weather, the Tiny Living Stuff Pack lets you bundle up in new knit sweaters and other comfy accessories. I use "comfy" loosely here. Wool is itchy, itchy, itchy.
The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff Pack comes to PC and Mac on January 21, and to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 4. Until then, we've got a guide to the best Sims 4 mods that you might want to thumb through.
