Content Packs are selections of themed features such as Residences, Buildings, Blueprints and Decorations designed to allow creation of interesting, theme-oriented neighborhoods. Each pack concentrates on a specific style, be it a regional one like the European or Asian, or related to a specific activity (like Beach Buildings and Mountain Buildings). Each Theme can be found under the Packs Menu.
Monte Cristo first intended the Packs to be Planet Offer - exclusive content, which was to be released with time, enriching the game. The first content pack released was the European (under the name Old England pack), with the Asian pack announced shortly before the end of the Planet Offer.
