I popped onto the forum today and at the top was a little announcement banner that simply stated: The Sims - Your vote counts! Help us create a new stuff pack for The Sims 4.

The link below is the official blog where from today until April 6th they want all simmers to comment in the comment section below the blog post the Theme of the new stuff pack and they have started a thread on the official forum (second link) where discussions can be held on the new stuff packs and any updates.

Lol, I checked first to make sure I wasn't doing a double post.

Quick hint: when doing the vote for theme the instructions are kind of misleading. 1 means the pack you want MOST and 5 being the pack you want LEAST.

Example: 1 Eco
2 Dangerous... etc

Survey Timeline:
• Theme Vote (April 3rd - April 6th): Select the overall theme for the pack. Every part of the pack will be influenced by this key decision.
• Art Style Vote (April 10th – April 12th): Select between proposed art styles for the pack, which will guide our concept artists in the objects and clothing they create.
• Objects & Clothing Vote (May 18th – May 21st): Browse through the concept art we’ve drawn for the pack, and select your top choices to help us determine which objects and pieces of clothing are included.
• Feature Vote (June 23rd – June 26th): Select the top gameplay feature(s) you want to have included in the pack.
• Pack Icon Vote (Fall): Peruse different icons and select the one that will appear in the pack's box art and within the in-game catalog.
• Pack Title Vote (Fall): Select a title that best summarizes the pack's atmosphere and content.

You can either use the drop down menu -Or- Drag the choices to be in the order you like. Smile

Yeah I used the drag and drop rather than putting the numbers in. giggle

Also caught this under the Legal Disclaimer they have on the forums:

Happy Simming!

So the bold print has my brain in meltdown. I don't know if I'm just reading to much into it or if it means what I think it means, which is that this "pack" will have a different price than the standard stuff packs released before. I'm really hoping I'm reading way to much into it and my brain is looking for EA's reasoning into doing this....$$$$$$$$$$ = greed

Eco living is the winning theme
Thread by SimGuruGraham

http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/915787/eco-living-is-the-winning-theme

SimGuruGraham wrote:
After a vote spanning four days, eco living has emerged as the winning theme! We've compiled the results from all of the various regions players around the world voted from, and here's the order each theme placed in...

1. Eco Living
2. Starter Home
3. Dangerous
4. Wedding
5. Arcade

With a winner selected, we can all look forward to the next important step of development, and to focus discussion here on the forum towards eco living.

So, just what is next? Well, on April 10th we'll kick off another big vote to determine the art style for our eco living theme. Eco living means different things to different people, and I'm excited for all of you to share your vision. I'd suggest that we all think of eco living as a starting point for where this pack could go, rather than using the theme as a box that we constrain our ideas within.

As you saw in the theme vote, there are a number of potential directions we could take. Will laundry be the primary feature? Will green technology that responsibly enhances our home life play a significant role? Or, will we focus on living in ways that are in tune with nature and living off the land? For now, these are excellent discussions to have within this forum. Eventually we will have to narrow the pack down from our broad theme to a very specific direction. Going forward, your votes will help solidify the answers to these questions.

If you're curious to learn more about what happens to the themes that didn't win, I invite you to click here and read my other thread on that subject.

It will be interesting to see what becomes of this stuff pack, which way it will lead. I know from reading the forums, many simmers are leaning towards laundry. It would be nice if we had like stackable washer/dryer sets, economy size washer and dryers, or even front end loading machines. I'm just hoping and praying that if it does lean to the laundry side and that's what we get, they are usable sets and not just decoration as one simmer had suggested. Who wants to put a washer and dryer in their sims home(s) and not be able to use them? Just to ridiculous if you ask me and they would have to really have something in that pack that would make me want to spend the $10 on it and not be able to "use" the washer and dryers.

Do you think he's saying that the pack will not be free? Stuff packs are around $10.00, aren't they? hmm
Sims having laundry machines reminds me of TS3 and laundry messes all over a house and the laundry Gnome. Those different Gnomes were cute, fun and entertaining.

Yes Stuff Packs are usually $10.00 and I am pretty certain this one will not be free. That would be a great surprise though. I do like the Gnomes though I rarely remember to use them. Smile
I too have an ugly remembrance of piles of green stink clouds over piles of laundry.  No

The Eco living would be useful. Hmmmmm....looking forward to seeing how this develops.

I agree since each could suit the theme of Eco living.
Style A could represent the Upscale ? Preppy ? Sims who have decided to become "Earth Friendly"
Style B could represent the more Off-the-grid SIms living off the land in a rural setting.

I do too. It's too bad we can't have a little of both worlds. Sad  I looked at them from both a players side and a builders side, but in the end voted for A, as I'm more apt to use A in my sims homes than B and same with building.  I'm not too hopeful that style will win as I see many simmers posting they voted B. So it wouldn't surprise me that B isn't announced the winner.

I don't understand why they put the little pictures of the clothing as that will also be a vote. I saw some players were basing their vote on not the room objects but the clothing style.
