The upcoming Modern Luxe Kit introduces new luxury items for Build Mode, with a focus on a black, white, and gold colour palette (although other colourways for these items are available). The kit includes “elegant” themed items including new artworks, designer handbags, sculptures, modern couches, a bed, and a record player.

Here’s the official description, per EA:

It’s time to sit back and treat your Sim to a life of luxury. They’ve worked hard and it’s time to celebrate how far they’ve come. With The Sims 4 Modern Luxe Kit, your Sim can say “I made it,” through elegant art, sophisticated décor and cushy comfort. Leave frugality in the past and showcase your Sims’ signs of success. 

Embrace your creative side and design a stylish and inviting space filled to the brim with high-end pieces like TV’s disguised as wall art, designer handbags, sculptures and a functional record player.

Gallery Update

In addition to these Kits, a newly-released update for The Sims 4 is making changes to the base game Gallery, and how you can discover new content. Going forward, trending hashtags have been re-implemented to make it easier to search by theme, and players will now be able to search creations by EA Account IDs with minimal fuss.

Searching by item name will now be easier as well, as EA has confirmed tweaks to its Gallery search engine so players can discover content using ‘AND’ operators to get more accurate results.
