SimGuruHydra is asking for your help in decorating The Sims Studio walls. They’re cleaning up, painting walls, and would like some awesome things to put on those walls from the community! You can submit drawings, sketches, photographs, and more. Will you be submitting anything?!
Time to dig up some of your fanart of The Sims!
We need your help! We’ve been redecorating our studio walls and given them a fresh coat of paint, but we’re not done! The last final pieces need to come from you!
Sure our walls are freshly-painted, but they feel a bit bare without some cool stuff to hang. And what community is more creative than The Sims community? Simply put – we’re asking YOU to send us your creations inspired by The Sims™ games!
We know many of you take your creativity outside of the game – whether they’re sketches, collages, desktop wallpapers, paintings, and even handmade crafts. These would be perfect for our studio walls.
So what kind of artwork are we asking for? We’d love to see creations inspired by any of The Sims games – from the very first, to The Sims 3, to any of the console games (hey, The Urbz had some amazing style)! Pieces can be any of the following:
- Drawings, paintings, sketches
- Handmade crafts that can be hung on walls
Send physical art to:
209 Redwood Shores Parkway
Redwood City, CA 94065
We’re accepting digital artwork as well! Send your digital art inspired by The Sims to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Artwork for the SimGurus

With Game Developers Conference (GDC) starting in about two weeks, on March 17th, one of the sessions has already been cancelled it appears. The AI Postmortem session for The Sims 4 that was scheduled for Monday, March 17th is no longer listed on the GDC website. Not sure if this a publishing glitch, as it’s kind of sudden to cancel a session, and if it does turn out to be, we’ll keep you updated. Good news, the other sessions are still there and more details about those are below.

Thanks to Zerbu for the tip!
SimGuruCopeland has shared another screenshot of the new outdoor gazebo coming with The Sims 3 Store set this month. SimGuruCopeland answered the question of how large the gazebo was, and well, you can place a hot tub under it. Woohoo under the gazebo at its finest!
I imagine the gazebo would be large enough for many things such as an outdoor bar, dance floor, or even a perfect area to put some tables and chairs and use it in a wedding for your Sims.
I was asked if the gazebo was big enough to put a hot tub under it, so I put one of my favorites from Seasons.

SimGuruCopeland shared two screenshots of a new gazebo object and the new hanging chair coming in the March The Sims 3 Store set. The hanging chair can be placed anywhere, not just under the gazebo! Also, SimGuruCopeland mentioned a Pecan Tree too. Another new harvestable to the list!
…And you thought I was going to tease the Pecan Tree. If you need me, I’ll be hanging out here. #BohemianGarden
