Last week The Sims announced we will be getting another Community stuff pack for The Sims 4.
The Sims 4 Laundry stuff was also a community pack and was a huge hit. So what can we choose this time?
Voting for themes, items, game play etc will happen in stages and trough voting. Everyone in the community will be able to vote.

The first vote is live right now! And you will be able to vote until November 25th 7pm UK time.
You can get to the first round by clicking this link directly, or when you’re in game you can see it on your loading screen.
Remember, that not all game play features listed in the voting will actually make it in the pack, regardless of what theme will get chosen. Only the top ranked theme and the top ranked game play feature will definitely be in the pack. This doesn’t mean we will never see the other themes or game play features, just means (probably) not in this pack.
The voting is done through SurveyMonkey, wich you can access in the ways listed above. The survey will walk you through 5 themes:
- Arts & Crafts
- Happy Haunts
- Self-Care Routines
- Science & Technology
For each of these themes you have to sort the game play questions in order of how much they interest you. So even for the themes you’re not interested in, you still have to sort through the features.
After you’ve done that, you get to sort the themes in order of which one you liked the best.
That is all that is being asked in this first voting round. You can vote until November 25th, 7pm UK time
When will we be able to vote for the next things? And what will we be voting for. Good question, and here are the answers.
- Art Style Vote (December 23, 2019 – January 3, 2020): Choose between proposed art styles for the pack, which will guide our concept artists in the objects and clothing they create.
- Clothing Style Vote (Late January 2020): Review concept art of families wearing different styles of clothing and decide on your favorite clothing style. This will influence the look of the clothing in the pack.
- Object Style Vote (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 (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 will appear in the pack’s box art and within the in-game catalog.
And when will it be released? Well, that’s unsure for now. The pack first needs a theme, and features. After all that has been chosen the dev team can get back to work and fully work on the pack full steam ahead.
