We’re only a week into 2020, yet developer Maxis is already planning the release of fresh content for the insanely popular The Sims 4. This time around, we’ll be introducing our beloved Sims to the space-saving (or is it constricting?) delights of the Tiny Living Stuff Pack.

The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff Pack

Swapping out lavish mansions for decidedly humbler dwellings, Tiny Living is all about downsizing and low-key living.

Each home has a 100 tile limit thanks to a new residential lot, so we’ll need to get creative with the efficient use of the limited space available.

A popular community-driven trend of creating ever-smaller The Sims 4 homes already exists. As such, the Tiny Living Stuff Pack is a natural, officially produced, evolution of what players are already up to.

YouTube is awash with videos of players setting themselves increasingly ambitious challenges of reducing the contents of a home into tiny spaces. For example, this video features a 3×9 tile home that looks more like a compressed garage than a living space.

The real-life tiny homes trend is baked in as well with the Tiny Living Stuff Pack channeling those ecological, minimalist, and cost-saving values.

Brand New ‘Stuff’ For Our Sims

We’re dealing with a Stuff Pack here, so most of the new content is, well, stuff. Retractable Murphy beds, ingenious space-saving home appliances, bookshelves, and slimline furniture abound. It wouldn’t be a Stuff Pack without some appositely subdued sartorial choices to fit the subject matter.

For crafting the ideal small home and meeting specific requirements, the game offers bonus rewards. These include bill reductions, a comfort bonus to keep Sims nice and cozy, and relationship gains. Tight-knit spaces seemingly lead to intimacy in The Sims world rather than the inevitable aggravation born of sustained proximity that tends to arise in real life.

All in all, the Tiny Living Stuff Pack announces itself as a worthy addition to The Sims 4 catalog. It’s out on Jan. 21 for those playing on PC or Mac, while PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players have to wait until Feb. 4.
