The 5 best but most terrifying Sims 4 challenges

My guess is that when you were a kid, right, you were one of two types. You either used your action figures to play out imaginative (if potentially weird) stories, or you picked one of them up and went "I bet I can make Lion-O's legs go in the splits so far that they fall off", before proceeding to test your hypothesis.Players of The Sims…

The new Sims 4 Eco Lifestyle gameplay trailer has made me very excited to eat bugs

A few years back I went to a theme park in the UK - I think it was Thorpe Park - and at lunchtime we had a burger at a jungle themed food stand. I think it may even have been I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! themed, somehow. The point is that for whatever reason, each meal came with a portion of…

How to join a secret society in The Sims 4 university

One of the more interesting things about The Sims 4 Discover University is that you can find and join a secret society. These hooded figures are quite elusive, but once your Sim has joined them and increased their secret society rank level, your Sim will be able to use some interesting skills.

The Sims 4 best packs guide: all DLC packs explained

There are 32 DLC packs for The Sims 4. This is a lot, and since they range from cheap packs to full on expansions this can snowball into an eye-watering amount of money being spent.

The Sims 4 skills guide: every skill explained

When The Sims 4 was first released, there were quite a few skills that Sims could learn. If you count all of the skills introduced in every single DLC pack, that number has now ballooned to over double the base game's skill list. Some of these skills are vital to learn to get that dream job, while others just make Sims look better on the…

Put some Dragon Age in your Sims 4 with these free mods

It's been a while since I properly trawled the unmapped, here thar be monsters waters of The Sims Resource for some new mods for The Sims 4. I've settled into a bit of a routine where I just wait for my favourite makers like Ravasheen to put up their new stuff, and Bob (Pancakes) is your mother's brother. But in a fit of quarantine madness…

Recreate doomed romance in The Sims 4 with these custom Life Is Strange hairdos

It's been a few weeks since I surprised and delighted you with some custom content of the week for The Sims 4. Typically, I also avoid showcasing CC for Create A Sim (or CAS). It's the part of the game I'm less interested in (I don't think that, to date, I have actually played the Sims - I just build houses, m8), and therefore the…

I made an isolated island hermitage in The Sims 4 but it is a complete coincidence

Regular readers will know that I play a lot of The Sims 4 these days, although I don't actually play the game where you puppet a tiny person. I just build homes. My current project is building an ideal home for each of the RPS staffers, having started with a ferny cottage for Alice 0. I've mostly been using the restrictions provided by the Tiny…

The new Sims “Play With Life” branding has big boomer energy

I get that if the last instalment in your long running game series came out a whole six(!) years ago, you need to remind new potential consumers that it exists. Especially if it runs on a games-as-a-service sort of a model. Enter, then, a new ad campaign? Branding? Thought experiment? for the Sims (and, more specifically, The Sims 4) called Play With Life.

Love this tiny Pikachu with an amazing Sims 4 pok√©mon mod

The Sims 4 liker has logged on again. This week she (I) was poking around for some nice potted plants to download for some ongoing build projects, and found a list of recommended custom content makers by Ravasheen, the creator from my first 'custom content of the week' post. Ravasheen recommended NynaeveDesign for great plant work, and lo - Nynaeve does great plants. I was…

Imagine it is worth going outside with this beautiful wicker furniture set for The Sims 4

Currently I am working on building a home for Sin in The Sims 4, much like I built a home for Alice 0. This means I've been looking for a lot of plant and outdoor bits and pieces, because Alice O is well into plants, and for Sin's home I am taking a little inspiration from her natural Minecraft hermitage. Unfortunately, the UK has been…

This YouTuber built What Remains Of Edith Finch in The Sims 4

Alice L. was the person who really encouraged me to dive headlong into the pool of long build projects that is my fandom of The Sims 4. She is both one third of the Council Of Alices and one third of the RPS VidBud team on YouTube, and she's just started a new Sims 4-themed video series. In Can We Build It?, Alice L. attempts…

These working bunkbeds for The Sims 4 are amazing, including an agonising pun

As I continue to build stuff in The Sims 4, I am going to start highlighting some of the amazing work being done by custom content creators. This week, one of my absolute favourite creators, Ravasheen, released a new bedroom set - the That's What She Bed bunk bed series (one of the reasons Ravasheen is a favourite of mine is that all of their…

A new Sims 4 Tiny Living build: look at this lovely cottage wot I done

My love for building stuff in The Sims 4 continues. I saw today that, in the space of about a month, my custom content folder has hit a gigabyte in size. Whoops. But this is all in service to a greater goal, which is building nice houses. After I showed everyone my tiny desert concrete block, Alice0 said she would like a house with more…

10 extremely good ideas for The Sims 5

Happy Birthday the 'The Sims' series! You’re 20 years old today, which means you’re finally old enough to throw an old boot full of soup right at a cop’s head, and be totally immune to prosecution (seriously, it’s true! If you didn’t know about that lil trick, you should try it). You’re also old enough, apparently, to have released an unfeasible number of spinoffs, ports,…

The next The Sims game could have online elements, EA say

Don't panic. Or don't get too excited, depending on your opinions on the long-dead The Sims Online from 2002. During a recent earnings call, EA's CEO Andrew Wilson alludes to experimenting with social and competitive elements in a future Sims game but the word "MMO" was definitely not mentioned. Instead he says that "this notion of social interactions and competition [...] will start to become…
