The 1980’s…big hair, loud clothes, neon arcades…everythingwas over the top! This was the decade of my birth (Quick! Guess my age!No...wait…don’t…) and it’s an era I remember vividly.

Music was a very important part of the 80’s. The cassettetape, big boom box stereos, rock music…I remember lying on the floor of mybedroom listening to the radio and waiting patiently for my favorite song tocome on so I could record it to a mix tape. Fortunately for my Sims, they haverobust control over the radio and the ability to skip from song to song whilelistening to the brand new “Boomin’Box” which is – you guessed it! – a massive boom box stereo!  

The Sims 3 70's, 80's, & 90's Stuff Pack captures therock’n’roll spirit of the 80’s with an awesome new guitar, and five new facialmake-up options including a lightning bolt over the eye and a new three-shadeeye shadow. My favorite outfit for men from the 80’s is a top and bottom set wecall the “Glam Rock Lace Up” duo. It’s a leather shirt (with lightning bolts onthe sides!) with laces up the front, and matching pants with laces down theside.

There are some really great clothing assets for women inthis decade! Some of the most iconic looks are most appropriate for the gym,but we also have a prom dress, an 80’s grunge t-shirt, and a hot pink longsleeved shirt paired with a mini-skirt a really big belt.

Video games were popular and the 1980’s were the heyday forthe arcade and we celebrate with the new “Blips Vs. Pixel” arcade machine.There is also a new “Neonis Foosball Table,” but I think that’s getting intothe realm of the 1990’s…

Stay tuned as I’ll be posting a dev blog all about the 90sand the grunge-tastic ways for your Sims to relive that era!
