I just want the 90s stuff, my childhood right there. Everything else can go away

There are like... 7 90's things, which aren't even all that 90s. XD

We don't even get a new fugly gaming console and mp3 player disguised as a CD player.

The 1970's were NOT mid-century, either by math or by furniture design.

I might actually buy this one. First Stuff pack I'll have purchased since S3 came out. Abuhwhut?

I am getting it because I really want the hairs and the objects. Although the '70s are not midcentury per se, lots of the mid-century and retro modern homes had the furnishing in them, I lived in one as a teen. So my homes will be getting an upgrade, or downgrade...however you see it.

I like it.

Finally, a worthy successor to Katy Perry Sweet Treats.

I really thought we would get door-knocker earrings with this SP and I was hoping there would be a high-top fade haircut. Oh well, my Salt-n-Pepa and Big Daddy Kane sims will have to wait.

I mean that in the nicest way possible...

The reason I find this disappointing is I was looking for things more like this:

http://www.tvhistory.tv/1970-79-UK.htm

The whole egg- or round-shaped aesthetic is something that appeals to me, especially when looking at 1970s stuff. I honestly don't know what you'd call it, other than streamlined or egg.

I'd love to have had one of those egg chairs that is almost like a cave you sit in, instead of just faintly rounded (think the game already has a modified less-eggy chair).

Even shoes and hairstyles in the early to mid-70s had that rounded aspect. (Remember Toni Tenille's hairstyle, or Dorothy Hamil's wedge?)

Crunchy-granola macrame items and other craft-y things like people made in the 1970s would've been great deco.

What I'm saying I guess is that the disco stuff is okay, but it seems a lot like all the other boxy-modernesque items we already have, so I was hoping for things which would expand my options for a 1970s environment and clothes.

It's not that I hate this SP... it's just that I'd want it to be a lot more awesome than it is. So I'll get it, eventually, but it's not a must-have for me as soon as it comes out.

I have to say this might be the first SP I'm not interested in in the slightest, I prefer modern stuff. Of course I don't count Katy Perry Sweet Crap as a proper stuff pack But this will be great for people who make themed neighborhoods etc., maybe for storytelling...

I'm glad they try to give us something different, at least. I don't think there was a stuff pack like this in Sims 2, correct me if I'm wrong

Pets had all the mid-century stuff in it. University was the 70s (and some grunge so 90s as well, I guess). The 80s was void from the Sims 2, for obvious reasons. It's fugly. Not really a pack, but the bits and bobs were there.

Speaking of packs, when are we going to get an architecture SP for this game?

I still wish they would've gone with Decades Stuff to avoid the, "what era had what," debates.

Hmm, that 80's leotard looks hot. Darn, I miss the 80's. Such fun times.

An architecture and a clutter pack. I agree, we need one.

I miss the SIXTIES. Now THAT was a REAL decade. We thought we were changing the world And we did, kinda, in a few places

Seventies and eighties were fun too... less meaningful but more hedonistic...

As for the nineties, I don't even really consider that the past, lol. I guess nostalgia stops after you turn thirty

What I don't understand is why EA had the likes of Sarah and King presenting this stuff pack. They are not old enough to understand those times!

The only person old enough to do-so is Lucy (From my memory) and she's more than likely waaaaaaaaaay too busy. :p

I have to agree with you Sri. I was born in the early 60's and doubt very much any of those "kids" have a real grasp on the 70's and 80's.

As an aside, that particular leotard was pretty much exclusively Olivia Newton John. I never saw anyone at the gym in anything like that. I mean, we did all wear DanSkins and baggy sweat pants over them, or sweat shirts. Occasionally we'd see leg warmers. I'm not suggesting that Long Beach, CA is the hotbed of fashion, but. . .

I like this SP, if only for the 70's items. My grandma and grandpa sims can now have appropriate furnishings for their homes! And, it can be fun to have pieces trickle down through the generations. I would love for there to be just a pure 60's SP, too.

Okay, I'm having to necro a thread about a SP that isn't out yet. Scary

Don't worry about it, I was looking for this thread the other day. Got sidetracked and had to leave the computer, glad it's on the front page again.

I find it troubling that it wasn't on the front page.

you never lived through the 80s if you never had to scold your bf for wearing more eyeliner and hairspray than you.
you never lived through the 80s if you don't find men in kilts kinda hot. Dudes In Kilts

Dudes Not In Kilts But 80s Hot
you never lived through the 80s if the whiff of hairgel and the sight of a sharp dude inna suit doesn't get your dander up :P
