The Sims 4 is finally getting the community-approved Stuff Pack with its features, but before ‘The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting’ is live, there are two main things in this content installment that players need to know of.
Yarn Basket: Where It All Begins
What makes The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting different from other Stuff Packs is that is is not just about new items to come to the game. It will also bring a brand new knitting system that will enable Sims to develop a new hobby, and will also start as soon as players purchase the Yarn Basket from the Build/Buy catalog.
The Yarn Basket is a bit more unique in comparison to other crafting items in the title as Maxis made it to be kept in the Sim’s inventory; this will enable the Sims to use their knitting skills anywhere. Starting a knitting hobby will ask for some Simoleons, but the developers said the price will be affordable.
Similar to any other hobby, knitting skills will start at a basic level but will be advanced to more intricate patterns. As soon as players unlock more type patterns, The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting will allow them to work on several projects, and any progress will be saved on the Sim. The official gameplay trailer also suggests that Sims can knit more than just the regular scarves, beanies, and socks because toddlers are seen as having various designs of knitted dolls.
Rocking Chair: It’s not just for Knitting
In The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting, players are able to get their Sim to start knitting anywhere there is a set. Still, knitting while enjoying some time in the new rocky chairs will gain them bonus points for their new hobby.
The gameplay trailer also shows non-knitting Sims, including elderly characters and toddlers, using the rocking chairs for other purposes. Children can use it to play, but the chairs add a new action for elder characters called Reminisce.
As the name implies, the action will trigger a sequence of memories on people’s mind swirls.
“What Elders take away from the whole experience is up to their personality traits,” the developers previously said.
The new knitting system and rocking chair make The Sims 4: Nifty Knitting a must-have as soon as it gets released on July 28th. Anyone who has the base game and would like to get the new pack only needs $12.90 to purchase it.
