edited June 17 in The Sims 4 Ideas Corner
Because there's been, IMO, a growing issue of a small, but vocal and persistent minority dominating feedback, I thought it would be helpful to make a compilation of the most interesting, unique, creative and useful ideas everyone has been posting so that the devs get a better perspective on what the community on the whole has been asking for. Also, I am hoping that by posting this list, some of the threads on this list will gain more exposure and inspire other players to either continue fleshing them out or use them as inspiration to come up with some ideas of their own.

Note: This compilation is a work in progress, meaning that I will be adding more links as I comb through the rest of the forum. Also, I won't be posting links for requests that are obviously in the works (like Pets and Seasons), could never be added (dinosaurs, zoo), can't be done (too controversial) or the devs have made clear are not coming back (casT, open world, etc.).

    @luthienrising Thanks for posting those links. Yes, I have the first one up there. Maybe I could give "farming" its own category and add those two under it, since this theme has been so requested.

    Oh! @BryonyRae has a long-maintained build request thread here, in Creative Corner > Lots: http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/787346/build-mode-feedback-for-ea-updated-for-3-23-17-patch-testing-results/p1

    Many thanks for making this list! It's a great idea and I will definately make use of it :smile:

    Thanks for your support and suggestions, everyone. And great so see so many people using the list to give more exposure to some of the great ideas that were getting buried. Keep it up! :D

    Please add Young Child Lifestate
  • isaiahzayisaiahzay Posts: 206 Member
    Would tools for world/neighborhood customization be considered something many simmers would want? I know I would love something like that!

    Great list! Thanks for getting it together!! :)

    I would like to, but this falls under the category of "could never be added/not gonna happen." Maybe in TS5 they will consider it but I'm pretty sure that this is out of the question for TS4, especially since the most requested life states are preteen and supernaturals and they just rolled out the toddler update. If you want, you can edit your post to link to the thread that asks about young child lifestates. That way, people will still be able to see that idea even though it's not in the master list.

    I have a thread up for a "SAW", which is about allowing players to upload neighborhoods. But tools for world/neighborhood customization, IMO, seems like another "not gonna happen" idea. The engine for TS4 is just too different from TS3.

    Great thread! I hope you don't mind me making a request, but you might like to add my thread 'Death in TS4 - Many Changes Needed' under the 'Death and Mayhem' section because I've tried to put in one place as many death-related issues in the game as possible. :) A lot of common requests for changes in death gameplay (ghost behaviour, funerals, cemeteries, etc.) are covered in that thread.
  • ts1depotts1depot Posts: 1,270 Member
    @Terra Thanks. I updated the list with your thread.

    This is a great idea to put everyones ideas in one place, it's unfortunate when peoples great ideas get lost in the forums.

    If you wouldn't mind, you could add my carving and pottery skill thread to your list? Link is in my sig.

    Fantastic collection. If you're looking for more links to add to this I have a few suggestions.

    First and foremost, I've noticed a lot of discussions on this forum on the topic of traits and emotions and how to improve and expand upon those systems. I would suggest dedicating a whole category to this topic in the OP. Some good threads I've seen focusing on this area of gameplay:

    http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/902309/sims-in-sims-4-dont-feel-unique-a-patch-update-to-tweak-existing-traits-would-help-fix-this

    For the existing category of SP/GP/EP ideas I would suggest taking a look at these:
