The Sims 4: City Living
Take your Sims to the city and explore everything it has to offer, from bustling action outside your door, to unique situations that come only with apartment living.

The Sims 4: City Living is the third expansion pack for The Sims 4. It introduces apartments and penthouses as well as city festivals, in the new city world of San Myshuno. It is a spiritual successor to The Sims 2: Apartment Life and The Sims 3: Late Night, with some elements from The Sims 2: Nightlife, The Sims 3: World Adventures, The Sims 3: Showtime and The Sims 3: Seasons.

The Sims 4: City Living was officially announced on September 12, 2016. [3] It was released in North America on November 1, 2016 [1] and in Europe on November 3, 2016. The console version was released on November 17, 2017.

How do you play The Sims 4: City Living?

A fairly free-form game at heart, the Sims sees you creating characters from the ground up, choosing everything from their looks to their clothes, personality, and even their dreams, before plonking them into a house — or in the case of City Living, an apartment — of your choice, and helping them live out their lives. Perhaps they’ll find love, settle down and start a family; perhaps you’ll be a bit of a playboy billionaire genius philanthropist instead; or maybe you’ll slob around in your pants all day, running from the repo men as you struggle to make ends meet — with the Sims, you can create your own stories and lives for your virtual characters, with the only limit being your imagination. With limited autonomy themselves (but plenty of things happening behind the scenes to keep things interesting), much of your time is spent dictating your Sims’ every day activities, from what to eat and when to go to sleep, to their recreational activities, social lives or personal development as they seek out that next big promotion at work.

In terms of what City Living adds to the core game, the biggest change is in your Sims’ living arrangements — instead of individual houses surrounded by plenty of room to expand, your Sims are now crammed into tower block apartments, sharing walls with neighbours across the hall. Giving them more opportunities for social events, whether it’s having a friend over to hang out, throwing a party, or paying a visit to the current festival or special event, life in the city of San Myshuno is much more bustling and busy than the usual suburban Sims life. However, living in such close quarters can give you issues with noisy neighbours, disrupting your Sims’ sleep and potentially making it harder to get up and get to work on time the following morning, with plenty of opportunities for new stories to play out.

I always say City Living is one of my favorite packs but is it worth it?

Even though City Living’s been out for a while, I wanted to spend my time playing through this pack specifically and see if it still holds up today. If you’re bored at home and figuring out which pack you want to splurge on, this could be it.

Like my other reviews, I used my Sim-self and dressed her only in City Living clothes, as well as moved her into an apartment and started her in the Social Media career.

My other Sims 4 reviews:

Gameplay

I moved my Sim into the Spice District (which personally has some of my favorite apartments) and 17 Culpepper House, the one with the gremlins trait because I want to torture my Sim.

I love the size of this apartment but the damn gremlins…for five days straight everything broke in the middle of the night. EVERYTHING. Sure, it helped with her handiness skill but it did get annoying after the third night.

She joined the Social Media career and I did enjoy posting updates and pictures as part of the daily tasks. I can’t say I’ve delved into the City Living careers enough in general, but I would like to more, especially the Politician career.

Of course, she spent her time exploring the city, meeting new people, and going to festivals, fulfilling the socialization real-me lacks.

Like other packs, the pre-made builds aren’t always the greatest but two of my favorite lots are the gym and the rooftop bar, along with the park.

I don’t know if this is a glitch but it seems every time I play in San Myshuno there are always elders dressed up in masks and tights…I mean you do you but it is a common thing.

  • CAS is one of my favorites. I always, always use these clothes. Before those skinny jeans became part of the Base Game, they were up there as one of my most-used clothing out of everything in the Sims 4.

the hair is cc but the dress, flats, tattoo, and arm bracelet I use constantly

  • Females and males get variety, but like most packs, children don’t get much.
  • Hair wraps and turbans.
  • New tattoos.
  • San Myshuno is a great world from the different districts to being culturally diverse.

  • The world itself is beautiful with a lot of detail, especially if you go to the outer-sides of the lot.
  • A small detail but I like seeing Sims walk around in the background. You can’t interact with them, but it gives more life to the world.

  • Plenty of lots, not just apartments but to build bars or gyms.
  • The park, Myshuno Meadows, is a great place to have a wedding.
  • Obviously, apartments are the highlight of this pack along with penthouses.
  • This pack introduced lot-traits, which I actually like to use when playing.
  • The build-and-buy has a lot to offer from color to new objects like basketball, gaming consoles, karaoke, and street-art.

  • Three new careers.
  • New traits like vegetarianism + new aspiration.
  • New food which you can learn to make.
  • Buying used, cheap furniture.
  • The festivals are a lot of fun and bring something new that’s not just an event you have to plan.

  • If there are two Sims I want to get together, I like to use the Romance Festival to get them in the mood.
  • Small detail but during the festivals, there are always seasonal plants (if you have Seasons) growing off to the side that you might not find growing anywhere else.
  • Being able to collect snow globes and posters. I use posters to decorate all the time.
  • You can give apartment keys to other Sims.
  • New ways to play the game.
  • Protests
  • Introduced the singing skill.
  • Fireworks.
  • Talking toilets…if you’re into that sort of thing.
  • The world feels more open than others. I remember people being so happy there wouldn’t be a loading screen when your Sim went downstairs to the center where all the Sims gather. It’s also super nice when a festival goes on in your district.

  • The clothing is amazing, the hair is disappointing. I didn’t realize how little hair we got and most of it is more for festival-use.
  • There are not many accessories.
  • Again, kids don’t get much in CAS (more than other packs) or much to do in general.
  • Even though I like the lot traits, sometimes they can be annoying depending on which apartment you move into.
  • I wish more apartments had balconies. They’re either too big or need TLC, which can be annoying if you don’t want to deal with rats all the time, but this is a personal preference.

Other Thoughts

  • Even though I love apartments, I wish we could customize them more but at the same time, it’s realistic. However, if I can change the layout and destroy walls, then why can’t I change windows? Or add a balcony?
  • This is one of those things I always flip-flop between liking and being annoyed by.

Is It Worth It?

I still believe even years after its release, City Living is a pack worth buying. From the clothing to the build items, apartments, festivals, as well as diversity amongst Sims and districts.

Despite a few cons I found while playing through, there’s not much I don’t like about this pack. San Myshuno is an impressive world in itself and I always find myself traveling or moving Sims there. I always move my Sim-self into an apartment. Always.

When it comes to my top 5 favorite packs, this one definitely makes the list.

However, living in such close quarters can give you issues with noisy neighbours, disrupting your Sims’ sleep and potentially making it harder to get up and get to work on time the following morning, with plenty of opportunities for new stories to play out.

Take Your Sims to the City

Do your Sims long to leave the suburbs behind? Fulfill their dreams in the diverse city of San Myshuno, where they can discover exciting neighborhoods, move into a new apartment, check out fun festivals and more. In The Sims™ 4 City Living your Sims can experience the joys and challenges of sharing close quarters with other Sims. Work your way up from a starter unit to a penthouse as your Sims launch new Metropolitan careers!

Explore the bustling city of San Myshuno. This densely populated city has enough unique neighborhoods to give your Sims plenty to explore. Get creative in the Arts Quarter or sing your heart out at the Karaoke Bar in the Fashion District. Head over to the Spice Market to shoot some hoops, or invite a few friends over to play video games after a long day at the office in Uptown.

Discover lively cultural festivals. Festivals are great opportunities to enrich your Sims. Let them watch street performers, enter competitions and meet a wide variety of folks from every walk of life. Check out the Curry Challenge at the Spice Festival or light fireworks with a hot date at the Romance Festival.

Live in apartments and get closer with your neighbors. Lots of new neighbors mean all kinds of opportunities for relationships, both good and bad. Your Sims might make a new best friend or fall in love, then debate giving them a key to their place. And what about those noisy neighbors and their late night dance parties? You’ll need to decide how to handle them — if you can’t beat them, maybe you should join them.

Work your way up from starter apartment to penthouse. Choosing the right apartment for your Sims can be a challenge. You’ll need to balance the charm of your first starter unit with possible setbacks, like cockroaches, leaky pipes or electrical problems. Help your Sims work their way up to living in a Skyscraper Penthouse, with panoramic views and even a Talking Toilet!

Embark on new, metropolitan careers. There are all kinds of new opportunities in the city so make sure your Sims take advantage of them. As a Politician, your Sims can make dramatic speeches while fighting for a good cause. Maybe they’d prefer a more refined career as a Food or Art Critic. Or they could inspire the masses working in Social Media.
