I’m a parent too and I’d rather refer to them as oversized toddlers than mini adults at times. And putting exceptions to the rules aside, yes, most teens don’t look like adults. They are recognizable as teens. Please stop finding excuses for a company that simply didn’t bother to deliver proper teens.Well IRL teens are just mini adults. I know this as I am the parent of one, she is 14 and has a driver's permit. Although I understand your frustration, I just think of it that way. Also, this game is international, so the fact that teen sims can drink bar drinks and get tattoos is something I chalk up to laws are different by country and the game is generic in that respect. Just use your imagination and put the limitations you want on each household differently. I have some obedient teens who live with parents and some teens that decide to live on their own.
I really don't know why anyone would complain now. With the pet doors, you can create a separate room near your house, put that new roofy decoration over it so it looks smaller, and inside you can put a pet bed, toys and food. It's now a deluxe pet house like we've never seen in the series before. It's a massive upgrade. And you don't do it with half walls, come on! You can't even place a roof over half walls. So you don't need to use move objects at all! I think they intended for us to do a pet house, as you can clearly see in the new trailer, they added that roofy decoration on purpose to make the dog house look smaller.
If you don't think this looks and acts like a super deluxe dog house we can customize and decorate to our liking and see inside you really are kidding yourself. It's miles better than a small one with a black hole on front we can't see inside and be limited to the few swatches they decide to include for customization.
Sim Guru JM has said in Twitter only cats on beds.
By the looks of things Sim Guru Grant said small dogs could but the tweet has been deleted and Sim Guru JM repeated only cats on beds. I’m on mobile so having trouble linking.
I remember the comments about safe space. To be fair there was never any implication the game was a safe space from murder or disabilities. It was about bullying.
I suspect the omission of dog houses is either because we have an alternative in game, they aren't needed for breeding, perhaps it's a sign of the times? (I don't use a dog house, I don't know anyone that does) I have considered also that this could mean we have a pets stuff pack on the horizon with the "premium" item being.. The Talking Dog House!! -cynical head on.
Don't get me wrong, I do understand now why some are upset at this. I'm not with dog houses because I assume there is an alternative I.e dog beds in game. I don't use dog houses in the sims 1,2 or 3 unless I plan to breed. But am I worried about the game play lacking and objects missing? Absolutely. Once bitten twice shy and all the focus on creating multicoloured pets with stamps on wearing daft costumes leaves me wondering if the rest of the pack balances out.
