On forums and social networks, some Sims fans are wondering: why heavy metal stations The Sims 4A set of things for knitting Nifty? Most people do not compare the two. I see why. Knitting is often seen as a solitary, quiet hobby … and metal – metal – loud and daring. But the developer Maxis has assembled them for a new package released today.
And no, that’s not a coincidence. Sims who listen to a metal radio while knitting receive bonuses for the craft, according to the developers. In fact, it also makes sense, if you know. Adding a metal station to the knitting “Stuff Pack”; is a nod to the World Heavy Metal Knitting Championships in Finland, a silly event that debuted last year.
As it turns out, both metal and knitted in Finland are huge. Twenty-six bands with a knitting list applied for the championship. Twelve bands from eight countries made it to the finals, each of which took off the knitting they had to knit during the performance. The footage of the event certainly does not disappoint. Unfortunately, a further event in 2020 was canceled due to the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 World Heavy Metal Knitting Championships are scheduled for this month in Finland – because a tribute to the event in The Sims 4.
“It simply came to our notice then The Sims 4 for a while and looked for different opportunities to do so. ” The Sims 4 sound designer Drew Bolz said earlier this year at the game’s forum. “At first glance, a knitting-oriented bundle may seem like a strange choice, but when we heard about last year’s heavy metal knitting competition in Finland, we realized it was really perfect.”
Although Sims can play an air guitar while listening to a metal radio, they do can not actually knit while playing the guitar, as in heavy metal knitting competitions. Not only does knitting visually change as you listen to the station, but know that it encourages your Sims’ designs.
