The Wind Chimes

There are 6 wind chime objects with this pack: 3 can hang from the ceiling and 3 can hang from the wall. You can choose from 3 types of wind chimes:

  • Aluminum
  • Ceramic
  • Bamboo

As expected, each wind chime type produces a different sound effect that’ll be triggered ever so often.

Having a wind chime near your Sim will give him/her a happy moodlet:

There are 2 interactions that you can use on a wind chime: you can turn it off completely or change the pitch to low, medium or high, which will affect the sound effect of the wind chime.

From left to right: low pitch, medium pitch and high pitch wind chime.

TIP: Hot-headed Sims are not huge fans of the wind chimes…

Some Sims who decide to view it may get a playful moodlet, while some will get a dazed moodlet.

Large Umbrella Table

Backyard Stuff brings the biggest round table to The Sims 4 – offering 6 seats to Sims.

This table can be good for either 2 Sims enjoying a romantic night or a household enjoying the outdoor grill. All 6 Sims can use it at the same time and place their food and drinks!
