The Sims 4: Hot Tub Exclusivity and Future Updates


*UPDATE*SimGuruGraham has made a statement regarding different types of Hot Tubs.



SimGuruGraham has announced today that the Hot Tub object from The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff will remain an exclusive of the stuff pack for some time. There’s also no indication of whether or not they will ever be included in games besides Perfect Patio. Keep in mind that Graham is not in charge of how EA sells their games, so he is just passing along whatever information he’s allowed to share.

In addition to that, he has also confirmed that the team is working to grant Sims an increase of the Fun Motive, and also working on adding in the “Easy Listening” and “Retro” radio stations to the Hot Tubs. Expect to see these changes and updates in a future game patch.

Resident Entertainment Reviews The Sims 4 Perfect Patio


The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff comes with a wide selection of items such as chairs, lights, umbrella tables, and a grill, but most importantly, it comes with hot tubs. Hot tubs were left out of The Sims 4 when it launched last year and since launch, hot tubs have been one of the most requested items by Sims fans. It’s great to see this item return to the game, but is the stuff pack worth it though?


The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff is a decent stuff pack when looking back and comparing it to the first stuff pack for the game, Luxury Party Stuff. This second pack is slightly better than the first because its gameplay item (hot tubs) is much better than the gameplay item in the Luxury Party Party Stuff (chocolate fountain). As a player of the Sims I can envision myself using hot tubs a lot more than I would ever use the fountain.

The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff – How’s it’s made


Via The Sims

The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff Pack* is full of items, decorations and outfits designed to upgrade your Sim’s backyard. Really early on in the process we realized that if we wanted to do this Stuff Pack right, it meant including hot tubs – and hot tubs are no small task.
It took months of work to get them just right and assure that they’d not only be cool, but that they’d be the biggest, best hot tubs in The Sims’ history. Want to know what went into creating a hot tub for The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff? We’ve pulled together a series of images to show you the transformation from whiteboard sketch to fully functional hot tub.

The Sims 4 Community Blog: Hot Tubs



The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff Pack came out this week, and includes some fun outfits, items, and décor to help class up your backyard. But the biggest addition in the pack is absolutely the hot tub – a hot tub that’s, in our opinion, the coolest one we’ve ever made. We’ve gathered up the reasons we think this hot tub is the best in The Sims’ history.
It fits up to eight Sims. In the past, hot tubs could only fit two or four Sims. We wanted to up the ante this time, allowing eight Sims to enjoy the comforting water. That’s a full household of Sims, all enjoying the hot tub together!
