    The Murphy bed as well is one of the most expensive beds in the game.

    You’re dead right, the only real tiny living element is the tv / bookcase / radio combo. I remember loads of videos being published with the “challenge” of building a 32 tile home with no move objects and no resizing. Everyone was like “yep, done”, proving that a tiny living pack added a lot of not very much to the game (other than the combo tv, new death & lot traits).

    True. The Sims has gotten way too easy, it feels like there are no challenges at all, everything is too perfect.

    I love your honesty. Also idk if anyone’s said this yet but Murphy beds are kind of a thing in the states but also not really?? There was one in an apartment I looked at once but they aren’t common at all. I really wish we’d gotten bunkbeds- I actually wish they’d come with university if I’m being real here

    Definitely the worst pack. It really didn’t provide anything helpful.

  • Janet Hilton

    Bunk beds, Bunk beds with a desk underneath with space for a computer set up, Same thing with a sofa even and a double bunk bed with space underneath would have been amazing.
    Ladders, spiral staircases, very small windows would have helped. The combination sink/shower you mentioned with a drain on the floor for a wet room...
    And there are other packs that would have benefitted from more.

    I've felt like the way they've been putting packs together recently have been kinda Lazy. Like they have an idea and spend five minutes on researching/how things would work in real life and also what the sims community wants to see.

    I remember wanting every single expansions of the sims 2 and the sims 3 because they added so much more fun to the game that I thought I couldn't live without them. Now, with sims 4, it doesn't happen to me at all. I just don't see the point of most of them.

    I was waiting to see if anyone would remark on the fact that the murphy beds when folded up, cannot have a coffee table or anything else in front of it. It has a couch implemented but nowhere to place your food or drinks on. Tiny living is about using all the space you got in a smart and efficient way, but having a murphy bed that cannot have anything else in front of it when it's not being used as a bed, isn't very space-utilizing. You may as well, as you said, use a normal bed instead.

    They should've gave you like cabin fever moodlet from staying in your tiny house too long. And if your sim gets sick it should last longer/be worse (many people who live in vans or tiny homes say getting sick in a confined space is 10x worse).

  • Erica Cook

    They could have done more research into tiny living IRL objects. Such as a table whose chairs fold into the table when not using them, or made the space in front of the bed usable when closed. This way, objects have to be moved when you want it pulled down.
    Another thing could have been a need to go outsed to maintain that "fine" moodlet. One thing tiny living makes you need is time outside for mental health. Another useful thing would have been a workable patio, or overhaings that don't artificially increase squair footage. New half fridges that fit into the counters like dish washers could have been usedul too.

    Why don’t make packs with collaborations with TheXvid simmers and we get what we want and they get paid so everyone is happy :). Just the way makeup collaborations happen sims should do the same with TheXvid simmers!

  • carissacampbell21

    they could have introduced the concept of a loft bed with space for walking under it. they could have even made it a combo like a loft bed with a desk and dresser under it. They could have also brought back the all in one bathroom like they had in the sims 3.

    I think a really cool idea for a game pack would be an Escape Room game pack. Kind of like ho Bowling stuff works, you could go to escape rooms with your friends and family, and you can create your own escape rooms. Could maybe even work like get to work where your sims could actually own and manage an escape room place, maybe expand it to have more rooms to make more money. Anyone else think that would be really fun?

    They had a Murphy bed in the classic British show, Are You Being Served. Ms. Brahms and Mrs. Slocombe got stuck in it, if I remember lol!

    I feel like the team who decided on the items in Tiny Living should probably have talked to simmers who regularly make tiny builds in order to understand what would have worked better in the pack

    Honestly I've been using the Murphy Bed more like a sofa bed than an actual bed for my Sims. It's like a spare bed for if someone wants to crash on the couch. Yeah, claustrophobia would have been great trait to add and maybe agoraphobia or something for the reverse people who like tiny houses and are afraid of big houses. Or like trendy trait people who brag about their tiny houses or even an eco friendly trait, people who enjoy living in tiny houses and using the laundry line like in Sims 3. There was so much potential there.

    YES! Someone finally said it! Why didn't we get a bunk bed and a ladder, two things we've been asking for, for ages! No we get another toilet? The murphy bed that nobody asked for. Why???

    I don't hate the tiny living pack but I do agree with Plumbella that it needs more items such as ladders etc.
    When I made a micro home in the Sims 4 the only way I could fit everything I needed in was to use stuff from other packs, such as the mini fridge so my Sim could have a microwave etc.

  • Serena Martin

    You know what would've been a GREAT addition to tiny living?
    The ability to put a 2 person bed up against a wall and for the sims to be able to just crawl to the side that's pressed against the wall instead of having to move the bed away from the wall, which takes up more space, for them to get into the other side.
    I mean, people do it IRL all the dang time! Getting it pressed up against the wall saves a bit of space. That bit of space could be a huge help with the tile limitations.

    They need to add a loft function into the game. A lot of tiny houses and micro houses I've seen irl have a lil loft space that holds their beds. And have a desk space or living space under it. I feel like it would be sooooo aesthetically pleasing.

    Murphy beds could have been good if the also included tables that folded into the walls. Would have over all been better served with loft beds.

  • Carrie Beckwith-Fellows

    Did they just patch the murphey beds? All of mine are electric powered, none pull down manually, which makes them completely useless for off-grid living (which is how many people in tiny homes live). Its made it really tough to build a proper off-grid tiny home. *bought the pack today.

  • BroodMango

    I mean murphy beds.. cool. Bunkbeds.. cool.. But why does everyone forget that one of the most popular things are just couches/sofas that you can open up into a bed..? Wouldn't that be the first thing that'd be missing in Sims, not just for Tiny Living -- in general?

  • Áine Órga
    Áine Órga 2 months ago

    Gotta say, I agree with almost everything here but totally disagree about the murphy bed not giving more space/options - having a sofa is a must for me in my game, and being able to have those six squares of space double as both has been SUPER helpful in making tiny homes. I just built a complex of three townhouses that add up to being a tiny home (64 square total) that comfortably houses 8 adult sims and I used two murphy beds in it. Absolutely could not have done that without the murphy bed.

    • Áine Órga
      Áine Órga 2 months ago

      But for the most part I agree. Especially as the tiny fridge and shower from the university pack have been crucial to my tiny builds and didn't even come with the same pack...

    when i downloaded the pack i immediately went to play it, spent a good hour making my sim, her cat, and her tiny house. Got to play for 2 fucking minutes before she was KILLED by the bed slamming down on her. it was a brand new save and her cat got deleted bc there wasnt anyone else in the household

    The only benefit I can find for a Murphy bed other then the couch bed mix is that yoga mats will work in the space when the bed is up

    the Murphy bed is actually originally from Sims 2 apartment life and you could also die from putting it down! so I guess it's there for the nostalgia really, although I haven't really heard many people talk about it
