The Sims 4 was given an official launch seven years ago. The addition of bunk beds is a recent update. The players are well pleased with the recent update which brought in a few other interesting things like new hair textures and elements that have made the game a little more inclusive.
However, one wonders whether it was really necessary to add bunk and loft beds at this juncture. The Sims franchise has earlier witnessed the addition of bunk beds. Before they were added to The Sims 4 during the recent update, they were also seen in The Sims 3: Generations, a version that was launched a decade ago in 2011. Ever since The Sims 4 came out in the year 2014, many gamers started emphasizing the need to get bunk beds back in the game. A lot of them had expected that bunk beds would be included in The Sims 4: Parenthood but that didn’t happen.
While those who were waiting for bunk beds to be added back in the game had their wish fulfilled with the recent update to the Sims 4, they felt disappointed to see an almost unfinished product being handed over to them. While carrying out the update, SimGuruJill and SimGuruRusskii, the producers of the Sims 4, stated that in the first iteration of bunk beds players will not be able to place objects other than single beds. The official statement by the producers, which made it clear that it was the ‘first iteration’ of the bunk beds left gamers disappointed.
It is quite possible that the developers of the Sims 4 didn’t have a lot of time at their disposal but that does not justify them releasing it in a haphazard manner. The major problem with bunk beds is that gamers would not be able to loft beds unless the Move Objects On cheat is used by them. Sims can use objects underneath the bed and not the bed itself. Owing to this, you don’t get any real benefit because of the inclusion of the lofted bed.
