The Sims 4: Snowy Escape has been out for a few weeks now. Whether you’ve already bought the pack or not, you probably know that there is something a little different about the builds in this pack.
Or maybe you don’t, in which case, you’ll learn something new. We all know that the builds that come packaged with new Sims 4 DLC can range from underwhelming to terrible. Every once in a while, there’s a hidden gem or two, but the general consensus around these builds is a bit “meh”.
For this pack, The Sims 4 handed over the responsibility for 12 of the Snowy Escape lots to players of the game. Four EA Game Changers – James Turner, Deligracy, SimLicy, and lilsimsie – built three lots each in the new world Mt. Komorebi.
They have all shared their experience of the build process (some videos linked to down below) – including the restrictions they had to comply with – on their YouTube channels.
The EA Game Changers also jokingly rated each other’s builds (a popular pastime for The Sims 4 builds whenever a new pack is released) and shared some insights about how a new pack – and its builds – come together.
But if you are still wondering who built what in the new Snowy Escape expansion pack, this is a little breakdown of exactly that.
The list below features the lot descriptions taken from the official Sims 4 site and screenshots from the Mt. Komorebi world map or the generic screenshots from the lots in the gallery.
The Game Changers are listed in alphabetical order with the lots themselves following in no particular order.
The YouTube videos are all a general overview by the Game Changers themselves. For more insights into how these builds game together, you can check out their channels.

Nobody knows who named this section of town Hanamigawa, but the lot at 6-4-1 Hanamigawa reflects the meaning well: “Treasured flower looking down the river.” This home is the perfect starter for a growing household.
Nestled at the base of Mt. Komorebi, 5-6-1 Shinrinyoku is a beautiful family home with the perfect mix of privacy and access to the heart of Senbamachi.
