Can't y'all see, we all need them to the Laundry Day Stuff, we have them since Ambitions, Town Life Stuff, and University Life! If we don't have them, guess what? I'm about to be extremely upset and disappointed as heck!

    We're getting front load instead, which will be stackable so they can work in smaller areas (you could stack them in a closet if you're in an apartment; many newer apartments are provding in unit laundry rather than a laundry room that they have to do the upkeep). Or if you put them side by side you could stack things on top of them (the stacked folded shirts that came with GTW, for example, or if we're getting a detergent box clutter item.

    the practical part of a fron load say you have your sims living in an appartment and there not much room you can stack the washer dryer in the kitchen or the bathroom even if i would love a top load for my sims sometime you have to accept the content that comes with the game @12JEREMIA

    Those are nice washers and dryers. I'm wondering do the basic ones match any and all cabinet/counters in the game? Maxis has a bad habit of not matching base game counter tops, bases and appliances.

    I'm not all that keen on the colors. Pink is a flashback to the 1950s. Orange is just atrocious and my least favorite color of all colors. But, I'm very happy to have the machines, front loading or otherwise. I'll just have to make them fit into my decor. I predict I will have many a back laundry room, out of sight, more or less. LOL

    Yeah, I'm likely to do that as well; if Seasons is on the drawing board yet maybe there will be features to turn it into a mud room of some sort. Don't have much of a use for mud/snow rooms here, but I've seen some nice ones on home improvement shows so it would be fun to recreate some of those. I suppose I could put a locker in the back room and Sims can change their clothes there.

    I think the colors are so you can have more of a fun type of laundry room rather than just blah white/grey and stuff. Also ties in with a lot of the current brights in the game already.

    That's OK! I will wait until the new pack comes when there's top load washers!

    AFAIK there are only front loaders in the pack, so don't hold your breath waiting for top loaders.

    You can stack the washer and dryer onto each other.

    my main choice might of been top load washer but I accept the front load washer dryer set makes sims homes more modern and its also a big plus if you have sims living in an apartment you can stack the set same if you eidt modify a log cabin to add toddler bedrooms or decide to build a future laundry room and @12JEREMIA if you went a top load washer I am sure in du time site like mods the sims will make some when the sp comes out

    They're handy for some things; I know crafters who have an old topload washer to use for felting wool for knit/crochet projects. But for standard washing front-loaders are becoming the standard because they're often more efficient, plus the ability to stack them and save space.

    You'd figure with Laundry day as the packs title there would be more washer and dryer options... oh well just another thing for modders to fix

    Not really. Where I live, top loaders are actually more common, and they usually are modern looking and have a transparent lid like the ones in the images below. The one I have in my real-life house looks quite similar to the one in the first image.

    Here, front loaders are usually dryers or washer + dryer combos (both in just one appliance). Front loader washers (without dryer) are quire rare. But for The Sims it doesn't really bother me that there are only front loaders, I'm pretty happy with what we're getting.

    When is this pack available? I haven't really kept up on it because I could care less about Sims doing laundry...but I remember seeing a round table that fit 6 chairs that I can't wait to use in all my homes
  • DannydanboDannydanbo Posts: 10,813 Member
    I would guess that they are only using front loading so the animations would be the same.

    It would be good to have washing machines because that's part of the game and we are missing lots of stuff we had in the sims 3
