This weeks house is built in the wonderful world of Starlight Shores. Called the Pastel Yellow Box, it’s an ultra modern home with lots of space, but on a small 25 x 25 lot.
Pastels are all the rage, right? Well I’d hope so, especially if you’re choosing to live in the Pastel Yellow Box. The Pastel Yellow Box brings a beautiful modern home, open living plan, spacious rooms, and lovely gardens!

In Issue 6 of The Sims Official Magazine released yesterday, there was an article (What A Feeling!) that was all about emotions in The Sims 4. There was also an article that covered Simlish and mentioned improvements and changes to the language our Sims will speak.
THE FUTURE OF SIMLISH
As Simlish continues to grow and expand with each new entry in the series, so does the size of the group of folks working behind-the-scenes to make it an increasingly fun aspect of each game. Starting with only three voice actors in the earlier games, The Sims voice team has now tripled to nine different actors. A bigger team makes it possible to have a much greater range of choice in how your Sim characters sound when they speak.
This ongoing expansion extends to The Sims 4, which will feature the broadest range of Simlish yet. “We’ve expanded the lexicon, created specific ‘slang’ for different Sim age groups, and placed more focus on object-specific terminology,” said Cameron. “We’ve focused harder than ever before on making each Sim sound unique, and it’s really paying off. The cohesion and attention to detail has really helped Simlish to feel even more like a real language.”

Next up was a mention of tea brewing in the article What A Feeling that highlighted our Sims emotions and just how powerful they really are!
“The Sims 4 actually helps amplify some of those feelings back at me. In the past, my Sim would just get a Moodlet saying they were in mourning when another Sim they knew died. Now though, after such a traumatic experience I see them walking with their eyes cast down and their feet shuffling, and they may burst out crying during the middle of doing something as mundane as brewing a pot of tea, and I find myself connecting with them.”
