The Sims 4 has received many stuff packs, which is a controversial topic among the game’s community. The most successful packs went through a rigorous community voting process. The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting, the latest pack for the game, is no exception. After an estimated nine months of community voting, the pack has finally released to the public. The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting released on July 28th for Mac/PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation®4. As the pack’s name aptly implies, it introduces knitting into the game.
However, knitting isn’t the only inclusion within this stuff pack. In fact, there are several features that are introduced. For example, Plopsy, the newly added online crafting marketplace; think of this as a virtual Etsy for your sims. Don’t mistake Plopsy as The Sims’ own black market though, as the developers made it very clear in their live stream that the purpose is to sell craftables only.
If selling cozy knits to random strangers on the internet isn’t your thing, you can also listen to the new rock ‘n’ roll radio station; as you take refuge on one of the new rocking chairs – deliberately ignoring all sims, stranger or not. The brand new rocking chair object is also perfect for elders who wish to use the new interaction that allows them to reminisce on their youth. To help younger sims ensure they are making the most of their youth, there’s also a focus radio station. The focus radio station will give sims that listen to it a focused buff – which will help them raise their skill levels faster.
Although The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting has already came out, you can read about its evolution from start to finish. The developers have made several posts on the official Electronic Arts blog discussing the various aspects of the pack’s development.
