The Sims 4 Island Living: Seven Features We Love

The Sims 4 Island Living has been out for a few days now and we have decided to take a look at some of our favourite features that have come with the new expansion pack.


Sun, sea, and sand. What more could your Sims want?

The world of Sulani is honestly beautiful. Whether your Sims want to explore the world or relax by the beach there is plenty for everyone. Another thing that we love is the influence of the Polynesian culture which can be seen throughout the world of Sulani and the pack as a whole.


“I wanna be where the people are. I wanna see, wanna see ’em dancin’. Walkin’ around on those – What do ya call ’em? Oh, feet”

Becoming a Conservationist

One of the four new careers in The Sims 4 Island Living is the Conservationist career. While the career itself is very in depth, it also does open up the opportunity to explore all of Island’s.  Your Sims can also get into preserving Sulani by helping cleaning up the Island and surrounding areas.
You can find out more about the Conservationist Career in our handy guide here.

Water Activities

Whether it is relaxing on an inflatable, sailing around Sulani, zipping around and performing tricks on an Aqua Zip, fishing, Free Diving or just swimming around there is plenty for your water-loving Sims to do.

Dogs Can Swim In The Ocean

If you have The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack you can get your Dog to come and join you and swim around Sulani. Sadly Cats can’t join you but it certainly is adorable seeing Dogs embracing Sulani.


Because who doesn’t need a Dolphin friend in their life?

Sulani Residents

The residents of Sulani are proud of their culture and traditions. Not only can your Sims join in with the Island events but you may discover some of the resident’s backstories.

We also love that The Sims 4 Island Living includes some pre-made LGBTQ+ Sims as well!

You can find out more about the Residents of Sulani in our Meet the Residents article here.

There is plenty to explore in the world of Sulani and this is just some of the many features that come with the new expansion pack. There is plenty more to discover too!

Don’t forget to let us know what you are most excited to check out in The Sims 4 Island Living Expansion Pack and you can find more articles about Island Living in our dedicated section of the site here.

  • Can you please not bring up identity politics in articles like this for the Sims games? Because nobody cares about that liberal nonsense. All we really want is to have fun and not to get woke.

    • same, this mfing company is not trying to change the world, they’re just trying to make the money moves.

      • Yes, how dare they make efforts of goodwill to the diverse consumer base. WHITE HETERO ONLY, right? LOL.

        Why are you mad though? Is it because you’re mentally limited by a zero sum line of thought? You can’t see anyone get anything (even if it’s just acknowledgement) without feeling like you’re losing something?

        Thanks for bringing your miserable personality to the comments, and dragging down the vibe. You’re good at it.

    • @Alyssa, since this is an aspect of the game, it is *totally* relevant for identity politics to be in this article. This article is just reporting on some new aspects of the game. If you have a problem with this aspect of the game, your comments are better directed at EA and not a fan site!

    • Considering some players are members of the LGBT+ community, it’s nice to see them included. It doesn’t take away from your experience considering the majority of pre-mades are single or in hetero relationships (And white! Now, imagine if it were the opposite? Never seeing existence of people like you acknowledged?). This site is has contributors who are LGBT+, so it’s a weird choice for you to rant about it here.

      It literally doesn’t hurt you or take anything away from you, so perhaps reconsider why your reaction to anyone else being included bothers you so much, especially when everything else generally caters to you. Because, at the end of the day, the only takeaway here is that you’re a hateful, miserable person and I’m glad you’re spending your time alone on a computer rather than engaging with people.

  • @Alyssa This game is literally supposed to be a simulation of real life, albeit with some unrealistic aspects depending on how you view them, such as vampires and aliens. But what some people will read when reading your comment is: “Only white straight sims are supposed to be in this game!” Keep in mind, players are meant to be able to create themselves in the game, including black & LGBTQ+ players. If you’re not happy with this, you should contact EA, and not rant about it on a fan-made website. If you contact EA, they might respond. If you rant about it here, you’re just being hateful and dragging down the mood.
