I have learned not to judge leaked pictures too harshly because it's difficult to see the details of the items on small pictures...
But those items in the picture look very similar to what we have gotten already with other packs.
Csme here to say: reskin, reskin, reskin. This pack just doesnt have the I need it vibe like courtyard oasis or the plant kit which both added things we didnt have and brought some uniqueness to build and buy.
I want a plant kit 2.0 so bad
What’s worse for me is that they are the same furniture but this time they only come in tones that match each other and only each other.
This set gives me the same vibes as the blockhouse outdoor set from kiwisims, except his set is free and honestly looks better to me.
I was going to say that! It's like a lamer smaller version of the Kiwisims one.
Uhhhh how is there a desert pack without any cacti
That's exactly what I was thinking.
Just what I wanted, another bar without matching counters… :/
Why do they refuse to match things 😭
They're forcing us to be creative.
Most infuriating thing ever
It’s not really my niche, but I like some of the items. But man >!if that part of the bbq is a fridge and it’s functional, that’s pretty cool!<
That would be really cool!!
meh, I highly doubt it... I like that we are getting a new bbq, but other than that, nothing looks really worth the money and I can think of a few CC creators that have made better outdoor stuff that you can get for free...
The bar literally looks like a recolor of the base game modern bar :/ that other chair bench looks to chunky too for my liking personally. The little circle chair looks like something from island living recolored too same with the cube and the fan. The curtains honestly look like the dine out ones. Also all of this I pretty much just downloaded from a cc creator. Though I guess for console it’s nice but not for the price in my opinion.
Came here to say exactly this. Feels like we literally already have ALL of these items.
looks very desert not very luxe
Ehhhh…I feel like I could get this whole set from a cc creator. It’s not worth the $5.
I agree…is it just me or do the items just look very bland??
They really do!
I think I’m spoiled by the quality and abundance of cc that whenever I see stuff packs I’m like “oh okay”.
I don't like it. The items are kinda weak (quality and quantity wise and not worth buying in my opinion)
I just hate that whenever players complain about broken gameplay they just give us another leak like "oh you guys are complaing about the game? here have another leak to take your minds off the issues we're neglecting to fix" IDK It's just that this happens too much now. Why can't they just fix the game?
yeah, EA really thinks its consumer base consists of a bunch of 4-year-olds... Only that people still happily buy their stuff regardless, so why should they change their ways?
Me too. Hopefully they have more colorful swatches, and these were just the best to show the items in such small thumbnails.
Agree. It looks good but there’s better CC. But it’s a nice option for console players
Isn't the point of these kits that they are by CC creators? Peacemaker did Desert Oasis, for instance.
I thought this one was by EA? Do they collaborate with cc makers for kits? If so, that’s actually pretty cool!
Yeah the first round at least were all by CC creators, and a big chunk of the money goes back to the creator! I'm not sure why they'd stop doing that. I know they've been collaborating more with creators in general.
I’ve heard they do that a lot in the last couple of packs, including buildings
i miss stuff packs. at least you were getting SOMETHING gameplay wise.
Couple meshes look interesting but the displayed swatches are not my style. Looks kinda generic, too neutral and uniform as a whole for me, I want to see the rest of the swatches.
Thoughts: is it really a leak if it happens every time?
i was gonna say. these aren’t even leaks anymore lol just a teaser now before release
I mean the second object in the third row (open window) looks nice. But to spend 5 euros so I can use one window? No thanks.
These look so boring. Definitely not one I will get.
It's kinda desert, but not very luxe. It looks like it'll mesh well with the Batuu items. I'll probably skip it - we only have two desert worlds.
I haven't really been playing since the last update borked everything.
Is that pack about "desert luxe" or about carboard boxes? I can hardly tell the difference
There's nothing special about it. I've been considering the Courtyard Oasis kit and I was hoping this one would complement it.
You shouldn’t hate to go against EA, they have a reputation for being money grubbing and charging consumers for anything they can. They deserve criticism.
WORD! Jardane set is beautiful and one of my favorite outdoor sets!
>Hate to go against EA like this
Just how I chose to word it
Some of these look like recolors of existing items - am I wrong? The fireplace and the lights in particular.
Okay. I will say it. Cheap boring shit. What will be expensive. Or maybe it looks so bad because they give it for free? 🤷♀️
underwhelming tbh. i had high hopes from a kit collab with aveline :(
They look nice, are a style I rather like. And I like the long term stability of official content over CC, and being able to use anything from the gallery.
... But my game's still too busted from HSY to be interested in buying any kits atm.
It literally is just 90% recoloured items most have already in their games from other packs. Except for one or two items that look brand new. Not worth it
It’s.. very brown.
Literally no thoughts on it. It's that bland
TIL that "desert luxe" just means make everything the same color of tan. Can they do a "fix the whole game" kit instead, please?
For the most part, I think kits are a waste. I would much rather support cc creators instead bc at least they are creative
Oh a kit. Fantastic.
Oh joy, a kit with multiple items that look like brown recolors of basegame and other pack content. Revolutionary.
I feel like I’m gonna get downvoted cuz I see everyone with a very different opinion 💀 but I like it. I won’t buy it because I’m not buying any kits but this would be one I would consider buying. Yes the items may look bland, but I feel that way with a lot of items we already have. I would actually use the items and I’m not even a builder
I want to see how the swatches go with existing stuff
I like the bbq but the rest is just kinda meh.
Hmm I'm pretty underwhelmed by it, though granted we can't see the different swatches. I just don't find these items that exciting, or even that unique for the most part. So it isn't doing it for me, personally
Oooo I like that
It....it all looks like the exact same color of sand for like. EverYthInG. Why Sims 4?
the first kit I think I will actually buy, bc it is totally up my alley! I love the desert and modern stuff, even tho I'm not someone that builds often, I can totally see myself using the couch, chairs and tables often even inside
The items look cute enough, and my main legacy family lives in Oasis Springs, so it could be worth getting
Oh look another bar
I decorate like a club kid on speed. This speaks absolutely nothing to me. Hard pass.
HSY broke my game so badly, EA won't get another cent from me until those issues are fixed.
dude take my fucking money it'll be perfect for my Mission Desert mansion
*Im so glad we’re getting another bar, we don’t have nearly enough of those*
I’m not spending any more money on the sims 4. I haven’t bought any new packs since Wedding Stories, and I intend to keep it that way. The only way EA will learn to release good content that actually works is if people stop handing over their wallets.
very boring sadly :/
Looks very boring and bland. I could find much better cc for free.
This looks like CC I already have in my game.
I have custom content I don't need this
them seem so.. idk.. textureless ?
At this point I'm kind of sick of kits. I guess this stuff is okay-ish but it would have been better to just put it in a gamepack.
Boring and brown.
Same thing I think about all kits. I miss stuff packs
Oof, this sits in the same place Industrial did. Obvious recolors of existing content, and totally not worth even the five dollars.
Except that tall bar stool. That's cute.
So far it just looks really plain and brown. Like they just reskinned some items and they didn't even pick items with an interesting shape or detail.
bland. only thing nice is the grill and the patio couch
none of the items really stand out to me, to be honest.
Tbh. It looks like when I tried making build mode cc for the first time. Very bland and simple
I feel like we have at least a few of those item already….
Call me what you want to but I had a genuine happy cry the other day at how much CC is out there for like, everything you could ever want to make in the Sims 4, and how much effort the community puts forth to making this game more enjoyable.
Maxis simply can’t keep up with the creativity and output of the Sims community. I’m going to continue to be disappointed with them, but grateful for the foundation of my favorite game.
I'm bored. We already have half this stuff.
Tired of 50 shades of beige
Not feelin' it.
Honestly, not interested. As I am with most kits,
it’s a kit so it already has to be REALLY good for me to buy it. this one, not interested
I'm done spending money on this glitch ass game.
I mean.. They're cute. Nothing to write home about though. Colors are bland so I hope there's more interesting swatches than these.
The art department doesn't disappoint ( as in they don't usually make stuff that's so ugly one wouldn't even consider looking at) but the timing on this kit is dogshit...
Cute, but not worth 5 dollars
Boring, I feel like CC creators have already given us this.
They’re ugly 😅
Cash grab. They are basically re-textured items from other packs, with one or two exceptions. Definitely not gonna give them any of my money for this bullshit. Got better cc online.
Looks very beige lol 😂 yeah i think these kits are getting sadder
This is the ugliest shit I’ve ever seen
Personal opinion: its shit.
Are these all of the items? For 5$? Jfc
I’ve gotten better (free/cheaper) CC packs. This is just sad
They're bland af
My thoughts are the same as they are with every kit - "Some of this stuff is cute, but that's way too much money for such a small number of items and no gameplay, so I'm not interested."
Guess I'm glad they exist for the sake of console players. I don't understand why anyone with access to quality CC would waste their money. $70 USD so far - just on kits!
Very… brown. Brown versions of shit we already have
We don’t know the other swatches.
Lol no but since it’s the desert pack it’s probably gonna all be a similar color scheme
Not for me, I'd rather we get more desert worlds bc they are my favorites.
The items look pretty boring but that means I’ll definitely use them a lot
Not worth it
I'll probably get it because I feel like it will help my houses out in Oasis Springs and Strangerville, but I really hope there's more than just this
There's definitely better CC out there judging based off these pictures, but these will be nice for console players who can't download cc or mods.
I don’t think it will be much if any more. Kit packs are tiny
It all looks really nice but I don’t think I’d be missing out :/
Plus my game couldn’t load if I added another pack
Main draw for me would be the angled window (the part that juts out seems to be 1-tile wide, so you can stack a bigger floor for a seamless angle; I guess CC creators will have to create multiple floor heights and widths though) and folding doors/archway (would be nice to have a closed version as well, or one that actually animates to open and close, but it doesn't seem to be the case.)
The dining (?) chair and bar stool look alright, and the curtains could have some nice swatches. The rest of the items are either bland or require a more detailed look.
I'm looking forward to seeing what builders do with it, whether or not I buy it. It looks like a pack that will play well into Oasis Springs right off the bat, but I can also see it in Strangerville, Del Sol Valley, Selvadorada, etc... as one of those out-of-place modern developments.
I won't buy it right now for financial reasons but it looks good and I would probably end up using a few of those items a bunch.
Me looking through my wallet: what do i need more? Desert luxe items or Subway sandwich?
*sigh*... how much again?
i believe that top right item looks like a barstool and if so im obsessed
I haven’t bought any $5.99 packs LOL
The windows interest me. They way they lean out could add some fun architecture. I'm thinking very mid-century Palm Springs.
The only kit I ever cared about was the throwback fit kit.
Meh, nothing I’d race to buy
Can’t wait to buy it
Wheres the desert???? Wheres the luxe???? What were they trying to achieve with this pack???? The color brown???????
I quite like it. I like the look of built into the plaster that goes with the mission style in Oasis Springs. I think the pieces will blend well with other pieces we already have as well (like one of the newer base game chairs).
I also like that they included a wall and floor with this. I hate it when I can't find a matching wall and floor.
I have this but it's cc. Wats going on
I love open/sliding doors so that’s nice, but I have to admit I get my sims stuff “illegally” from a friend so the price is not a factor. I’ll download it anyway. The only pack I don’t have installed is batuu because no. Ironically this stuff kind of matches batuu, hahaha.
When I heard desert luxe I thought it would be like…southwestern(?) style I guess. I am sort of disappointed, I can’t tell for sure yet if I’m going to buy it.
I’m gonna be honest, it just looks boring as hell. I wouldn’t mind it if It was base game or came with an expansion that has a bunch of other things, but I would not pay just to get these items. I could probably download CC that looks even better than that, for free.
It looks nice but I don’t really build often, so it would be useless to me (which is why I ignore 95% of kits)
Boring and samey-looking? Nothing to write home about from the looks of this - and I doubt they look better ingame.
Is that everything or just a small sample? Because o kinda like what I’m seeing!
The sofa reminds me about sofa from the Eco pack, I think. Or at least it gives me the vibes.
I only bought one kit - the plants one and I don't know what they would have to put into kits for me to buy another.
Not for me.
Someone on tiktok was excited about the slanted windows. I don’t think this is what they were expecting - although it’s exactly what I was expecting.
I really like these items but they just aren’t unique at all, too close to stuff we already have.
I am a bit underwhelmed. I don't buy the fashion kits because I use cc, so I look forward to the other ones. I don't think I'll buy this one though. :/
that chair in the first row looks like a wider version of heyharrie's chair...suspicious
not sure i would pay for it but it’s not bad
I have seen CC creators do similar sets before so many times, so that's very whelming from EA. Console players may get something out of it, but PC players can get better CC for free tbh
This is incredibly boring
Ugly AF. I know 10 cc creators who make better stuff
Not worth $5 wtf 🤨🤨🤨 but ima still buy it
One day, we will get the same window for all wall heights. Or maybe, just a window & a door from the same pack that’s the same height.
boring like majority of the packs and kits sims brings aorund now
half of that is just recolors of stuff we already have right?
The window looks kinda cool, but as always there's only one so it'll basically be impossible to use. Just another incomplete, rushed cash-grab imo.
I'm not buying any kits or anything else until they actually fix the major bugs from the last update... that said, this one looks underwhelming anyway
Would be great if they could fix their existing packs before churning out new overpriced content
I’m still not coming back
Looks great but nothing screams I NEED THIS.
Oh wait — those windows might 🤔
Any remember when we last had a stuff pack? I admit some of the kits are nice, but in the end they are cash grabs. We just got an expansion, before that a game pack, aint it time for a stuff pack?
I hate them but I don't like mission style faux southwest style and I don't like packs. Basically I am cranky about it. This feels like a redundant set of items that doesn't add anything except for console players and well... They get less bug fixes so it's not like they can use these anyway
Seems like it would match well with the spa day bathroom stuff?
Well if you like brown, this set is for you! It looks boring to me, and too similar to items we already have.
so glad I don't gotta pay for this shit lmao
It looks like stuff we already have.
If it's real, it's uninspired brown versions of items we already have...
Meh I'll wait and see
It's giving... nothing.
Kinda boring looking, but I guess we’ll see. I’m curious if they will add more….fun swatches
The light fixture on the bottom looks like a reskin of another fixture that came in a different pack
Edit: It's not exact, but it's close enough [https://i.imgur.com/60uuom0.png](https://i.imgur.com/60uuom0.png)
I don’t need any more patio stuff.
I’m so sick of kits
Not impressed. But then again, I'm still upset that it's not a dessert-themed kit like I thought it was when I first saw the name.
I honestly really like it because I like to use neutrals in my builds. Some of the furniture seems to just be reskins but a couple of these items (light and the fan mostly) are in colors that I'll actually use now.
For example, the main reason I bought the werewolf pack was for the new ceiling fan lmfao. but was disappointed when I realized it only came in rusty swatches. so I'm glad we're getting another one 😂
Is it bad that the grill is possibly my favorite of these 🙈😂
Isn't that dining chair the one from the big anniversary update, when we got items designed by modders?
It’s fine I guess, I wouldn’t really buy it. I think they were going for more culturally diverse items but kinda ended up w just rich looking things that aren’t that great. If they’d gone a little further I think we could have a more versatile stuff pack that would be enjoyed much more
they look kinda bland ngl :/
very meh. I mean they look fine but it's definitely not something I need. We have so many similar looking objects already
Also why do they keep calling these 'leaks'?
Oh yes please give us another bbq the sims won’t leave alone and we end up deleting anyway out of frustration
Not really imlressed with first glance. All verg bland, nothing stands out as being a more unique peice. Personal taste really
The grill looks really nice! And the bar chair! I think we all hate the idea of kits but they do usually have nice stuff in them
It looks very meh.
Other than the fact it’s a kit, I really like the style
i am cackling... these are horrible.
Everything but the top right chair and bbq look like starter oasis springs furniture items.
I mean the items are nice however way too similar to other items already in game. Perhaps they should just add more shades to items we already have
I’ve seen better CC functional objects for some of my desert mansions in the game. I am not impressed.
