Q:Will you be paying these people or is it "portfolio work?"
I won’t be paying anyone. This is a labor of love…I make no money from Sims4News and pay for everything myself!
Q:how many positions are u looking to fill?
I would hire 2-3 content creators. The other positions don’t have a limit. I would be very happy hiring graphic designers, app developers, website designers…etc. Anyone that can help keep Sims4News running or help to improve/expand Sims4News is welcome to join the team!
Why? Sims4News has nearly 8,000 followers. I’m looking to expand our operations in three ways:
- Better content
- Faster content
- Strengthened community
With more help, Sims4News would be better equipped to serve the needs of Sims fans. I have always focused on fast, streamlined, no-fluff news, and I want to continue to do that as effectively as possible! I’m also looking to strengthen our existing community; I’m considering forums, chatrooms, smartphone apps…maybe even expanding into a full Sims 4 fan site!
If you are not interested in the job below, but think you have valuable skills and/or ideas that would benefit Sims4News, then definitely shoot me a message and we can discuss that! This is very, very flexible.

The Sims Official Magazine Issue 6 Summary
- Insane Trait Confirmed
“For example, there’s one set of Moodlets in The Sims 4 that only Sims with the insane trait can get. I find them hilarious because their names and descriptions are written entirely in Simlish! Long time fans should be able to figure out precisely what they’re saying…” —Graham Nardone, What a Feeling
- Aging Toggle On & Off
"I’m honestly very protective of my Sims; I play the game with natural aging turned off because I hate the thought of losing them." —Graham Nardone, What a Feeling
- New Simlish
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.” —Do You Speak Simlish?
And the list of new information concludes with…
- Tea Brewing
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.” —Graham Nardone, What a Feeling

Q:ew...honeywellsims4news is being so passive-agressive right now in a post about you. why are they always so dramatic? probably because they have half as many followers l o l
Haha thanks, I responded to the post! And it’s alright, I do need to be held accountable for the things I post. A lot of people look at Sims4News for info, and clearly what I post has an effect on the media coverage of TS4, even outside of Tumblr! I’m just glad I got to clear up the situation and say my piece :)
The Sims 4 Subscription: Rumor & Baseless Speculation
There’s been a lot of discussion in the community the last few weeks regarding a subscription option for the Sims 4 based off of a post made by Sims4News. That post is now gaining legitimacy as other gaming sites repeat the same misinformation in articles like, Sims 4 to include a Premium Plan and paid DLCs.
This wasn’t true two weeks ago and it isn’t true now.
EA is surveying players about a potential annual subscription service. If you pay $100, you get ALL of the content released throughout the year for free, including expansion packs, stuff packs, and store content. —Sims4News
THE SURVEY listed different combinations of content bundled together and given a discounted price. There was no mention of a subscription fee, no pay $100 and get everything for the year and no “premium plans”. It was a straightforward “get this, this and this bundled together for this discounted price”.
That’s it. Nothing more.
I didn’t just make this up to start rumors, I got the information from this website. Clearly, the website presented speculation about the subscription service as fact, but that’s not my fault. I also didn’t present it as fact in my post…I made it clear that it was an idea.
I’m sorry that I accidentally circulated speculation and it turned into a big rumor, but that happens in a news drought. We know very little about TS4 thus far, so a lot of the news we have now is speculative. I’m sure we’ll know more concrete news in June.
