Backyard Stuff Pack: Sims 4 Live Stream Recap!

The Sims 4 Backyard Stuff Pack is expected to release on July 19th. Here is a recap of all of the new features from yesterday’s live stream!

Live Stream Recap

Backyard Stuff Table and Chairs

You can decorate the socializing area in your backyard with new wooden chairs and tables. Each of these objects are decked out with bright pastel colored patterns that match the designs of other objects, like the new outdoor rugs and wall decals.

Umbrella Table Six Seater

The major new addition when it comes to dining, are the new umbrella tables that can seat a family of six. The first is the “Perfectly Patterned Large Umbrella Table,” which comes with a splash of fun and bright colors. The other is the “Voyeuristic Large Umbrella Table,” which as the name suggests, comes with a transparent umbrella.

Backyard Stuff Decorative Objects

The stuff pack offers a variety of decorations from potted plants, to bird houses, and even a frog fountain. As mentioned earlier, you can decorate your house with new wall decals with patterns meant to match the tables and chairs.

Trick Slide Sims 4

Obviously the Water Slide is the main highlight of the Backyard Stuff Pack. It’s a new interactive object where sims line up to slide down a sheet of water.  Sims may either slide down normally, or perform various tricks along the way. For example, they can slide on their bellies, slide from a somersault, slide spinning around on their backs, or do a sexy pose.

Water Slide Sims 4

Fitness and Motor skills will determine how successful a Sim is when sliding down. Use of this object will also help a Sim gain those skills.

Jaws of Death Sims 4

Another water slide included in this pack is the terrifying “Jaws of Death.” You may add soap to both this and the other water slide to see bubbles form as your Sim slides through the water. The soap doesn’t last too long, but if you’re really in a hurry, they mentioned you can rinse them off by dipping into a pool.

Bird Feeder Sims 4

The bird feeder is another interactive object which has a one in seven chance of a bird attacking the player. Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Finches are among the birds you can expect to see visiting the feeder.

Sims 4 Wind Chimes

You can use wind chimes to add some ambient sounds around the house. These can be placed indoors and outdoors, either from the ceiling or on the sides of a wall. When you change its pitch, the length of the chime adjusts to match the selected tone. If you want a completely different sound, you’ll have the option to purchase ceramic, aluminum, or bamboo chimes.

Sims can also be awakened by the wind chimes if they sleep too close to them. But if the chimes becomes too annoying, you can click click a button to turn them off.

Wind chime settings and sequences will be transferred along with the house when uploaded to the Gallery.

Backyard Stuff Summer Drink Tray

You can mix up a batch of Iced Tea, Lemonade, or Citrus Swig, from the “Summer Drink Tray”. Mixing a drink serves up six glasses of refreshments which can be refilled at any time.

citronella candle light

At night, you can add some ambience to your backyard by purchasing a citronella candle. In addition, the “Flower Power” decoration will act as a light when night begins to fall.

Flower Power Sims 4

Speaking of which, each instance of the “Flower Power” object has a slight offset which creates a pattern when placed in a row. If your sims stare into the object, there’s a chance they’ll receive a Dazed moodlet.
