‘Sup, Simmers? SimGuruSarah here to tell you about the slamminist decade featured in The Sims 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff Pack – that’s right, it’s time to go back to the 1990s!
Video games, hip hop music and talk shows were all the rage in the 90s. But grunge was really where it was at. Although grunge music was first introduced in the 80s, it became commercially successful in the 90s and sparked a new wave of generational lifestyle. Inspired by this, The Sims Studio wanted to focus the 90s portion of this stuff pack on the unkempt and industrial look of the grunge 90s in both clothing and home décor.
Here are some of our new items.
We have a new living chair, “Designer Distress Easy Chair,” with a matching steel “IndustroShelf” bookshelf and a “Create-a-Table” end table.
There is even a new industrial-themed potted plant to decorate your home with!
The grunge scene is well represented with ripped jeans and baggy t-shirts for both male and female Sims.
Fashion in the 90s was all about tying sweaters around your waist (and jackets…and sweatshirts…hey, at least it’s better than the fanny pack from the 80s, right?), layered t-shirts, and, of course, parachute pants! Okay, maybe only “celebrities” wore parachute pants but guess what? Now your Sims can too!
Whether you want to tell the tale of the penniless aspiring musician, an up and coming party rockin’ hip-hop star, or dedicated groupie, the 90s offers your Sims many new stories to tell!
