The Return of the Stuff Packs!
In a surprise twist, Stuff Packs make a long-awaited return to The Sims 4! In fact, it has been over two years since we saw the last Stuff Pack release. This being The Sims 4 Paranormal Stuff.
However, this upcoming release is entitled The Sims 4 Home Chef Hustle. On Thursday 14th September 2023, we got a proper glimpse of the long-awaited Stuff Pack! From a new pizza oven, waffle maker, food stand and much much more, the pack is shaping up to be amazing!
Naturally, the return of Stuff Packs has been well received by the community as a whole. Many players are now eagerly awaiting more information in the run-up to the release. So get ready to find your hustle in The Sims 4 Home Chef Hustle later this month!
With that being said, let’s take a look at what the community initially had to say about the news of a new Stuff Pack!
I really hope “Home Chef Hustle” means maybe selling meals/desserts made at home 🥰 idk if it’s common around the world but I know some people in the UK sell home cooked items ! Especially when they say there’s new ways to make money 👀— mog ✨ (@MogSimmer) September 12, 2023

A Neighborly Expansion Pack
In addition to the reveal of another Stuff Pack joining our downloadable content collections, a new and third expansion pack for 2023 is on the way!
While not much was revealed about the pack, we got a bit of a teaser image featuring keys with a house keyring and some letters. The core bit of this image was the tagline, ‘One Neighborly Expansion Pack.’
Initially, the fact that by the end of this year, we will have seen three expansion packs is brilliant news and great additions to the franchise, Players began to share their thoughts on what this Sims 4 future release could be all about!
Amongst all the excitement around the news of a third expansion pack coming, here’s a snapshot of what the community had to say!
Maybe a sub-urban district with standard lots & a urban district with apartments in the same city?— UplayR94 (@UplayR94) September 12, 2023
A local culture skill of the likes of “Selvadoradian Culture” which Sims can learn & cultivate for?
Real estate mechanics & maybe some sort of a B&B concept for having guests?
The new EP will probably feature apartments but I think it would be really cool if we had functional townhouses in the sims 4— sydmac (@sydneymacoretta) September 12, 2023
Amongst all of the excitement and curiosity, many players are thinking along the same lines. While nothing has been confirmed at all about this Sims 4 future release yet, could we see the option to buy secondary homes? How about our Sims becoming their own landlord or creating our own apartment buildings? How about gameplay features that focus on the heart of a community? Maybe it is something we have never seen in The Sims before! For now, we will have to wait and see until we get more information from The Sims team!
Project Rene Update
Another highly anticipated section of the Behind The Sims livestream was an update of Project Rene. Players have been patiently waiting for a new update since the previous live stream. Today, SimGuruLyndsay shared more information with us. With development going well, the community discovered that Project Rene will be Free to Play from launch, will run alongside The Sims 4 and will grow over time with additional paid content.
While this was certainly a good update on Project Rene’s progress, players have been discussing a variety of thoughts and opinions following this latest update across social media.
“we plan to support project rene and the sims 4 at the same time.”— Kechi (@itsOBiGem) September 12, 2023
I flipping knew it! I knew they were gonna keep supporting sims 4 as the old way to play since rene is going in a completely different direction and playstyle.
So… The Sims 4 is going to be around for a long time to come. This is something I am grateful to hear.— 🌸 Sharon 🌸 (@sharonia_sims) September 12, 2023
Project Rene sounds dismal.
Saying this though. I do hope that the Sims 4 will receive some major fixing, especially if they plan to keep adding new content on to it.
I think Project Rene is a future base game. They’re just changing their approach since The Sims4 is the best-selling entry in the franchise, plus many won’t immediately jump into The Sims 5 after release. Therefore, two generations will coexist until the TS5 develops sufficiently— тинейдж дрим (@_DenisVolkov) September 12, 2023
Even though Project Rene is still very early in its development stages, there are still some slight concerns about the direction of the game as a whole. Despite this, with regular updates to the community and the transparency from the team with the community have been great!
We look forward to the next update regarding Project Rene soon!
Behind The Sims Thoughts
This is the third episode of the Behind The Sims livestream series. The fact it covers the whole of The Sims franchise as well as The Sims Mobile and Freeplay keeps the community well informed.
