The Sims 4 Island Living: SimGuru Twitter Roundup

With the embargo now lifted on the content captured by EA Game Changers at EA PLAY over the weekend, some of the SimGurus has taken to Twitter to share some more details about what is to come as well as teasing us with screenshots and gifs ahead of The Sims 4 Island Living’s release.

Here’s a roundup of some of the latest Tweets from the SimGurus, starting with SimGuruMorgan.

SimGuruMorgan gave us some more information in regards to how custom content works with sunbathing and tan lines.  It is possible for custom content to work with the new feature providing that it is set up correctly.

You can read a more over on The Sims Forum where SimGuruMorgan goes into more detail. You can find the forum post here.

SimGuruMorgan also gave us a sneak peek at some bears turning up at a clothing optional bar in Sulani.

Note: Clothing Optional is a new base game lot trait that is coming in the patch for The Sims 4 Island Living.

In response to Cinderellimouse’s Tweet about the meteors and the island’s volcano, SimGuruMorgan revealed that the Volcanic Activity trait can be applied to any lot. Combing it with other lot traits can and would cause chaos for the Sims that live there.

SimGuruGeorge, however, has been teasing us with some gifs of the beautiful world of Sulani.

SimGuruFrost teased us a few days ago with a gif of an adorable toddler having fun playing in the water.

SimGuruNinja, on the other hand, has shared a picture of his Sim playing with a seashell.

SimGuruNinja also teased that Island Living and Get Together will be getting a new mermaids club filter by sharing a screenshot of the Merfolk Club.

We also got a sneaky look at how Mermaids can work with The Sims 4 Vampires Game Pack and honestly we are just a little bit scared right now!

SimGuruChowder gave us an insight into some of the new sealife we will see in The Sims 4 Island Living other than just Dolphins.

But what else have we found out from the SimGurus?

  • SimGuruNinja revealed that the Island Radio has some big Hawaiian vibes
  • SimGuruFrost confirmed that Sims can be turned into Mermaids by using kelp that you find around Sulani. He also confirmed that young mermaid Sims wouldn’t grow their tails until they become a Teen.
  • SimGuruDuke clarified that players on older 32-bit Windows Systems & Non-metal Mac Systems will be able to experience The Sims 4 Island Living. More information about the upcoming Legacy update will follow soon.
  • SimGuruDuke also talked about how The Sims 4 Island Living does have seasons for players with the Seasons expansion pack but not to expect snow during the winter just a lot of rain.
  • SimGuruMorgan also followed up SimGuruDuke’s response stating that there will be a new weather type coming with The Sims 4 Island Living.
  • SimGuruLyndsay confirmed that ocean swimming is currently only available to Sulani at this time.

Of course in the true spirit of any upcoming pack, you’ll notice that a lot of the SimGurus have updated their profile pictures and Twitter names with a tropical Island vibe too!

Don’t forget to let us know what you are most excited for in the upcoming The Sims 4 Island Living expansion pack.

  • It was in the thread of the first tweet, but they also confirmed it shouldn’t mess with CC skins too badly either! Whew!!

  • “SimGuruMorgan also followed up SimGuruDuke’s response stating that there will be a new weather type coming with The Sims 4 Island Living.”

    I hope it’s something like a storm with big waves and if you swim during a storm, then you can die!*.*

  • i just can’t wait to float in the water all peacefully and look up at the tropical skies, even during a storm, perhaps when the Volcano erupts too, either way I gotta Zen.

  • Living in a country with a monsoon season, the weather is not as nice as what people’s thoughts. Heavy rain day and night, thunderstorm, flash floods, high humidity, tsunami, etc. It’s intriguing to know how well it’s going to be executed in this game.
