The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff

Hot Tubs and other Stuff Pack Features

New Hot Tub in the Perfect Patio Stuff Pack
The Perfect Patio Stuff Pack gives players the ability to use Hot Tubs in The Sims 4

The Sims 4 Perfect Patio Stuff allows more options for outdoor decoration, while also introducing hot tubs to the game. These are something most players expected in the base game, however it is good that this stuff pack does not start at $20 but rather half that. The content here is not quite as huge as that offered in the first stuff pack, Luxury Party, but does indeed compete with past offerings in terms of objects and clothing. Here's what's in it.

Hot Tubs

Woohoo in a Hot Tub
Sims can Woohoo in Hot Tubs and also upgrade them with the Handiness Skill

Hot Tubs
Hot Tubs return in this stuff pack, though it's unclear as of now if they will be introduced to the game through other routes. For now it's the only way to have them in the game. Hot Tubs provide the perfect route for socializing when multiple Sims get in together, while also gradually replenishing the Hygiene need. Sims can be shoo'd from the hot tub if they're unwanted there. You can, as expected, Woohoo in the Hot Tub for a Flirty +2 Moodlet (typical Woohoo result), and Sims can 'skinny dip' together (and alone if that's their thing). There are three hot tub upgrades available if your Sim has the required Handiness Skill:

  • Add Aromatherapy Filter (Level 3) - Use one of four oils in the Hot Tub to help alleviate Sims' negative moodlets, while providing positive ones. See below.
  • Add Stereo (Level 5) - Adds a stereo to the Hot Tub, which you can find the option to listen to under the Stereo menu when you click it, but only while inside.
  • Make Unbreakable (Level 8) - Prevents the hot tub from breaking down. Essential if it will be used regularly, and prevents the fun being cut off during parties.

Hot Tub Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy can be used if your Sim has upgraded the Hot Tub. These give the following bonuses, and all are free to use once it's upgraded. The effects last 2-4 hours after leaving the hot tub (depending how long you stay) and the oils themselves will stay in effect for users of the hot tub until they're removed or changed.

  • Jasmine Oil - Provides a +2 Happy buff, while also helping to remove sad buffs.
  • Lemon Oil - Helps removed stressed buffs and provides a +2 Energized moodlet.
  • Peppermint Oil - Provides a +2 Playful buff, while helping to remove uncomfortable buffs.
  • Sage Oil - Gives Sims a +2 Focused buff, while helping to alleviate boredom.

Build Mode Objects

Clothing and Hair

Not much here, but they do offer a few good looks for lounging on the patio. Females get a bit more than males. It's possible I missed a thing or two.

EA Origin, their download platform that you already have if you own the Sims 4. Most of the SIms 4 packs won't be sold in stores as far as I know.

The game got a free update several months back that gave everyone pools. All Expansions and Game Packs get updates along with the base game, depending upon the bugs that the Sims Studio fixes on each release.

You have to download the gamepacks just like you did with sims3. Once you have done this you will see the stuff in game.

It doesn't matter whether you purchase game content in-store or online. As when you purchase game content from a store or even online, you will get a game code for whatever Sims 4 content you've purchased. When you go install it Origin will help take care of that for you. Same goes for whatever other game content you purchase.

Let's get your game working! Try the following:
1. Quit the game.
2. Log out of Origin - *If exiting Origin isn't working, open Task manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc) search for a file called ts4.exe. Click on it and select end process.
3. Run Cleaner and it's registry cleaner
4. Restart computer, and try downloading again.

Ccleaner - https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download (Standard Edition is Free)
-- This helps clean up temporary files, internet cache files and other files that are left behind that are no longer being used.

When upgrading, will you be able to have all upgrades at once or will they be replaced if you choose another upgrade?
8th February 2016 6:25am
Playalot
Upgrades in The Sims 4 stack. So you can eventually have them all as your sims handiness skill improves and unlocks the different upgrades. Smile

No, the cheats are global and work with everything. Maybe you are making a typo or are not in live mode when trying to apply the cheats?
Guide of How-To's scroll down to the link 'How to Turn on Testing Cheats' and that might give you some tips so you can figure out what is going wrong for you.
