The Sims 4

SPECULATION: Fresh Concept Art of The Sims 4 CAS has surfaced, showing New Tools & Assets

Please note that this post is pure speculation until proven otherwise!

Alfredo Hernandez, one of the UI Artists and Designers working at Electronic Arts has published an interesting Concept Art piece featuring some never-before-seen tools and assets in Create A Sim.

The image shared by Alfredo on his portfolio features a mockup UI with some new assets and features including the Import File, Soundtrack and Share options, as well as tattoos which never surfaced in The Sims 4 to this date. The hairstyle that’s being rocked by the Sim below also seems to have suffered a minor change.

I would’ve treated this as an old concept art piece, but given the fact that it features new assets and also an icon in the user interface next to the EA logo which is a symbol of faction rallies in Destiny 2 (a game launched just a few months ago) I have a reason to believe that this concept was created just recently.

The user interface could just be a mockup since it’s completely redesigned, but the entire concept art could serve a purpose to show how the possible new tools could function in the game.

Personally I’m completely confused by this concept art piece and I hope we get more clarification soon.

  • He changed his website and all images were reuploaded in January 2018. alfredo-hernandez(dot)com was his old website. This is nothing new.

  • If these are concepts that are still currently being worked on for the Seasons Update (like how City Living had Lot Traits and Cats & Dogs had the roof overhaul and photography)… there’s a few things to take from it.
    1 – The Sim has multiple hair colours
    2 – You can import files (or choose from a library), presumably for tattoos (which are seemingly missing).
    3 – UI Redesign? (I doubt this one)
    4 – The Backgrounds MAY shift colours (Also kinda doubt this one)
    5 – You can choose songs to play while in CAS (I like this idea!)
    6 – Those poses on the bottom look like new Household Thumbnail poses (When you save a household to your library).

    Hopefully they continue these concepts!

  • Is the two skintones next to the top bottom a hint to The Sims 4 Seasons comming?. Maybe is a feature for when summer arrives and we get to skin tanning our sims.

  • I’m a huge Destiny fan (as well as obviously a Sims fan) so I feel like I should inform you that the two logos to the left of the EA Logo in the user interface could actually be five to six years old. The “H” specifically is the Hakke logo and the “F” is one of many Future War Cult logos from Destiny. Both appeared in the base Destiny game which was released in 2014 and further, if I remember correctly, both were also shown in concept art well before Destiny the game was released. Though, yes its true the “F”, or Future War Cult, logo specifically is prominently featured in Destiny 2, as part of the Faction Rally Events, unfortunately for the purposes of your article and its thesis, those logos are at a minimum four years old.

  • I hope this happens! Because the customization for the sims is very limited. We can customize the pets more creatively.

  • I personally think the “new” UI elements may actually be Mr. Hernandez’ dev tools. Since he’s a dev, he’s going to have a dev tools that aren’t available in the shipped game.
