The Sims 4: Eco Living Stuff is the working title for an upcoming stuff pack for The Sims 4. The stuff pack's development is being guided by a number of public community votes. The pack's content and title will be voted on by the community at large before being selected. The game has no official release date, but it is planned to be released within the next year.
On April 3, 2017, SimGuru Graham (Graham Nardone) posted a kick-off blog for the development of a new community-guided stuff pack. The first blog post included a poll to select the general theme of the new stuff pack, and gave five options: "Eco Living Stuff," "Starter Home Stuff," "Arcade Stuff," "Dangerous Stuff, and "Wedding Stuff." After the poll closed on April 6, "Eco Living Stuff" was selected as the theme for the new stuff pack. The pack theme has a brief description:
Adopt new home technologies to help your Sim with domestic responsibilities and live an eco-friendly life. Potential areas of focus include laundry, home technology, and solar energy.
On April 10, 2017 through April 12, 2017, a vote was held to determine the art style for the new stuff pack. Two style options, labeled "Style A" and "Style B," were voted on; "Style B" was ultimately chosen by the voters as the pack's general art style.
Based on the selected art style for the pack, concept art for 68 separate objects, as well as several CAS assets, were designed. A third community vote, from May 18 through May 21, 2017, narrowed the included objects down from 68 to 29.
Further community votes will be held over the coming months to determine which specific gameplay features will be included in the pack, the stuff pack's in-game and box art icon, and the title of the stuff pack.
