The Retail District will be the hub for all the businesses you’ve created, and where Sims will flock to spend their hard-earned Simoleans.

BONUS: Close Encounters of the Sims Kind
We can’t keep this one a secret. Aliens have landed and walk amongst us. With this expansion pack, you’ll find out which Sims are truly out of this world, and discover the mysterious alien dimension!

The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff Pack Is Out Now On Console!

Via: The Sims

Pray Tell, Wishing Well
With the release of The Sims 4™ Romantic Garden Stuff*on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Sims have access to the Whispering Wishing Well, which alters the fate of your Sims’ lives forever! Sims can choose from nine different wishes, including happiness, romance, youth, and Simoleons. But depending on the well’s mood, a wish can lead to everlasting delight, or something much less desirable.

Whether romantic, profitable, or creepy, each outcome is totally unpredictable! To give you a taste of what wishes your Sims could be granted, here are some of our most interesting possibilities.

Unlucky in Love
A Sim’s wish for love can be granted with the perfect partner and a loving relationship. But what happens when the Whispering Wishing Well is in a foul mood? Well, your Sim may end up with a new enemy . . . with benefits. Your Sim will find this detestable dunderhead completely contemptible but, in fact, inexplicably attractive. Sparks will fly in this torrid love affair that offers one of the rarest relationships in the game. It may be that your true love is just a wish away – but maybe not the true love you expected!

A Sticky Simolean Situation
If your Sim’s wildest dream is to become rich, they may just win the lottery and be showered with Simoleons galore. However, the Whispering Wishing Well has a dark sense of humor, and may twist Sims’ words against them. What would your Sim do with a juicy morsel of gossip? Not just any morsel, but a rumor so vile that if you threatened another Sim with exposing this secret they’d surely pay to ensure your silence? Instead of simply granting the wish for wealth, the well may present your Sim with this interesting moral dilemma, leaving him or her to decide if blackmail is worth the money.

Come On, Get Happy
Happiness makes all of our problems disappear, right? Well, in some cases, your Sim can end up walking on sunshine with a very happy moodlet, persisting even longer than the daily norm! But one potential outcome from a wish for happiness isn’t that simple. A curse can be put upon a Sim, where happiness seeps out of them and spreads to other Sims. The happier those Sims get, the further your Sim sinks into deep sadness. What a tearjerker! Of course, this is only one potential (and drastic) outcome.

Everyone Loves a Comeback
In other news, ghosts can wish for life, and may be granted the ultimate reward – a return to the living! Not only will this miraculous revival give the Sim a second chance, but a pact will be formed with the Grim Reaper, allowing them to escape death in the future. Immortality, anyone? Muahahaha.

Experience these moments with your own Sims and discover so many more when playing with the Whispering Wishing Well (and other fun things) in The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff today!

The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff Is Coming To Console

Via: The Sims

Shall we compare thee to a summer’s day? Ok, how about a romantic garden?

It’s the season of love, and your Sims can experience it for themselves with The Sims™ 4 Romantic Garden Stuff** pack, coming soon to console! The stuff pack releases on February 6 and includes new objects, clothing, and more to create a Victorian-inspired garden that will make your Sims’ hearts skip a beat.

Set the Scene for Love

The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff pack offers a mix of colorful florals, marble furnishings, and picturesque statues that let you build unique styles of parks, or revive backyards that need some extra affection. Create lush landscapes for romantic moments like dates, proposals, and weddings, or for enjoying a lovely afternoon outdoors. Will you build a manicured lawn with trimmed rose bushes and babbling fountains? Perhaps a wild botanical garden with ancient columns. Looking to set the mood? Flip on the new Baroque radio station, which is sure to be . . .er. . .classical! And to complete the romantic story, whimsical fashion and hairstyles will make your Sims feel fresh as a daisy.

Make a Splash
Your Sims can whisper sweet nothings next to the Fountain of Gluteus Maximus, leaving no emotions behind. They can even roll up their sleeves (and pants!) to have a friendly splash fight. If your Sim is feeling particularly bubbly, she or he can add soap to the fountain and see what mischief ensues!

Well, Well, Well
Sounds like the stuff dreams are made of, right? Be careful what you wish for! This Stuff Pack also includes the Whispering Wishing Well, which wields more power than there are W’s in this sentence. A single Simoleon is all it takes to cast a wish, be it for happiness, wealth, a child, youth, love, and more. But beware, the Wishing Well is known to be quite temperamental, and one should carefully consider not only what one wishes for, but when they wish for it. Different outcomes will keep your Sims on their toes – their lives could be altered forever!

We heart this Stuff pack, and hope you will, too. Take a stroll through The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff Pack, which releases on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on February 6, 2018.

The Sims 4 Dine Out Is Out Now On Console!

Via: The Sims

The Sims 4 Dine Out Game Pack* gives your Sims more than just options for a night on the town. If they’re feeling saucy, potential restaurateurs and foodies can own and customize their very own restaurant. How sweet is that? To help start the stoves, we’ve put together a list of tips that can improve a restaurant’s overall star rating, leading to higher profit and success.

The First Course: Starting a Restaurant

The Basics
After building one – or grabbing one of six awesome pre-made restaurants from My Library – a Sim is needed to purchase a Restaurant. Using the Ownership button in the bottom right corner of your screen, choose the Buy a Restaurant option, and choose the Lot. It’s important to know that your household finances are distinct from your business finances. Click the Transfer Funds button in the Ownership panel to secure Simoleons for your business. This money is needed to purchase furniture, pay for advertising, and cover staffing costs. You’ll need to put money down if you want to earn big long-term!

Name the Place, Pick the Theme
A restaurant’s name is usually the first thing patrons notice, and that original impression needs to deliver the right tone and taste. Will your restaurant be cool and swanky? Clean and classic? Weird and wild? It starts with the name, and then is unfolded like a napkin in the aesthetic you choose. Get creative with a romantic garden hideaway, or a kid-friendly neighborhood spot. What about a waterfront seafood shack, or even a multi-level maze?

Stir in the Essentials, Then Mix with Décor 
You’ll need a restroom, clean up area, Host Station, Waiter Station, and Chef Station, plus several Dining Spots – unless it’s a picnic restaurant and you expect customers to eat on the floor! Keep customers warm with heat lamps if eating al fresco, make a wall collage of Experimental food pics, or add sleek aquariums to display the catch of the day – or do all of them. Ah, the delicious options. Plus, make a personalized sign to show pride for your newfound endeavor. The choices are always yours!

The Second Course: Staff and Menu

Hire the Staff
Click the Manage Employees button in the Ownership panel to hire employees. You’ll need a Chef, Host, and Waiter. You can hire higher-skilled staffers, but they’ll cost more, which might be a financial burden on your new Restaurant. Plus, you can train employees later to turn them into award-winning staff. James Beard alert!

Dress It Up or Down
Using a simple menu, you pick how customers will dress at your restaurant. For something casual, choose “everyday.” For added spice, choose “party.” But what about uniforms for your staff? Quickly choose from a series of preset clothing. Got vests with flair on your mind? Go for it. Want your host wearing something eye-catching to greet customers? Sounds good! Or enter Create a Sim to personalize attire and make it unique. Your style, your rules.

Hey, What’s for Dinner?
Deciding on food is flavorsome fun, and there’s so much to choose from! Using the interface, quickly select and preview menus covering Dinner, Brunch, Experimental, Italian, or Seafood. Remember: you can customize here, too! Load preset menus to tweak them slightly, or pick and choose each and every beautiful, vibrant dish. It’s the story of your restaurant, after all, and every drink, main dish, and dessert can reflect your preferences.

The Third Course: Running A Restaurant

Know Your Chef
Because some recipes are more difficult to master than others, which you’ll see in the menu customization panel, consider your chef when designing the menu for your Restaurant. Hiring a great chef may be a good investment, but also be mindful of where your money’s going.

Keep an Eye on Things
No matter how impressive your staff, you’ll want to check out the action to know how things are going. If you can’t tell from watching the staff, check the reactions over the heads of your customers. They will gain or lose stars based on how well your staff is performing. You might have to sternly let the staff know when they make mistakes, or invest in teaching them fresh skills to prevent a repeat. If some employees just aren’t working out, make a hard decision and kick them to the curb!

Train the Staff
On the other hand, instead of kicking them to the curb, you might just take your staff to a higher level of awesome. Use Simoleons to train them by going to the Manage Employee option in the ownership menu. Better employees please customers, make fewer mistakes, and bring in more money over time. Invest today and watch for a future pay off. But spending at the right moment is a crucial decision to have a successful restaurant.

Time for a Pep Talk
Sometimes, the staff just needs to know you believe in the work they’re doing. Show them with the “Give Inspiration Speech!” button. This will get them excited about the restaurant, and about delivering higher-quality service. More stars from customers equals a higher-performing Restaurant, which means more Simoleons for you. That’s as sweet as a perfectly-made meringue.

Advertising Works
One of the hardest things for a restaurant is getting the word out – Sims won’t know about your fresh hot spot at first. But they will if you advertise! Invest in publicity by clicking the Advertising button in the Ownership panel. The more you spend, the greater the chance to bring in more customers. But, be careful! That staff you’ve been inspiring with speeches needs to be well-trained before too many customers come through the doors!

The Sims 4 Dine Out is out now, so tuck your napkin into your collar, because it’s time to dig in!
