The Sims team has released an official Penthouse blog for The Sims 4 City Living
Welcome to San Myshuno! Oh, wait, you’re already living in the city? Where, if I can ask? Oh. Oh, dear. In one of those apartments? Well, they’re not built and maintained to the high standards we think your Sims deserve. Please, come with us as we show you the top floor. Penthouses are the tip top of apartment living in The Sims 4 City Living* Expansion Pack (coming in November), and we think the penthouse there will be more to your sophisticated liking.
Typically, Sims strive to complete a Skill, or complete a career, or fulfill an Aspiration. In San Myshuno, one of the stories we want you to tell is moving up from the low level apartments, to live in one of the incredible penthouse apartments.
Penthouses are the perfect mix between apartments and residential lots. You get the incredible views and the fantastic city location, but also the flexibility of knocking out walls and building whatever you want at the top of your Sim’s world. Want to build a small rooftop garden next to your fantastic pool? Go ahead and do that. You own the floor and nobody can stop you in the penthouse!
Would your Sim prefer a quieter lifestyle, or one where you can blast your music free of complaints? Once again, this is your floor. The only people in the penthouse are the ones your Sim invited! It’ll also be nice living in a vermin free space.
“But I miss the quirks of my first apartment,” you say? Say no more! Your Sims can use Lot Traits in Build Mode to add quirks to their penthouse, or any lot in the game. Yes, even in Willow Creek or Oasis Springs! This is one of the new Build features we’ve added to The Sims 4 City Living, which we’ll cover in greater depth later.
In The Sims 4 City Living, the lower level apartments build character and help you tell a story. Through conflict and adversity your Sims will learn who they truly are. The high level penthouses are for Sims who are established, know who they are and what they want, and prefer to sip juice from the highest rooftop with only a select group of friends.
What story do you want to tell? Head to the elevator and make your choice this November in The Sims 4 City Living!
