The Sims 4: City Living has dropped, offering the experience of - well - a life in the big city. Buildings and skyscrapers are the norm. And players can take up residence in one of these buildings. However, not every apartment or penthouse is created equal. From dirt cheap rooms to luxurious condos, it is up to your Sims' Simoleons to choose which one they can afford.
Let's explore Spice Market, one of the four neighborhoods in the new world San Myshuno. Should you consider this neighborhood?
The Sims 4: City Living Spice Market
Inside Spice Market are the most affordable apartments you can afford and this is where your newcomer Sim will end up. This is also the neighborhood that The Sims 4 producer Grant Rodiek recommends for that realistic new-to-the-jungle feel.
The only Sims living here is the Rosaya household at 20 Culpepper House. You can move in as a neighbor, though. The available spaces are:
17 Culpepper House: It has one bed and one bath and is still available for $400 per week with $800 deposit. You can have it furnished for $8,095, but it has the Gremlins lot trait.
18 Culpepper House: It has one bed and one bath and is available for $600 per week with $1,000 deposit. The furnished price is at $11,090 with lot traits Historical and Haunted.
19 Culpepper House: It has two beds and one bath for $500 per week with $500 deposit. For furnished, you'll need to shell out $18,335, but you will probably have to shell out more as it needs TLC.
2A Jasmine Suites: It is available for $400 per week with $800 deposit. The lot has Good Schools and Romantic Aura traits.
2B Jasmine Suites: It has two beds and one bath for a measly $500 per week with $1,000 deposit. Furnished costs 8,240 and its lot traits are Good Schools and On Ley Line.
Old Salt House: The biggest there is in the district, you can have it for $50,448 deposit or $62,815 furnished. It has the lot trait Convival.
The Sims 4: City Living Why Choose Spice Market?
The Sims 4: City Living Spice Market district is pretty convincing if you are short on cash or you are just about to move in. This way, you can experience the struggle of maintaining a poorly-maintained space and clawing your way up to the top.
The downside to this is that you will have to pretty much share your space with cockroaches. According to iDigitalTimes, you can expect your characters to always be tense. Steam showers are also advised, but they will not do much in shoo-ing away these disgusting bugs.
Furthermore, this is where you can fully immerse your character in the culture with interesting neighbors and "awesome" food, in the words of Rodiek.
"It helps you create that true city story," he said. "When you first move in, there's only so many places you can afford. So the map is constrained quite quickly."
