I think a lot of simmers are confused about the pack, which is understandable. This whole time we were under the impression it was a mini generations pack, but it's not..
It's a pack about parenting, which is why there isn't much out side of the parenting aspect like swings or canes etc.
Apparently we will get to do things like punish, set curfews, etc and the way we raise our kids will affect then as adults. That is a very UNIQUE system that I feel isn't very easily explainable IN a short trailer, which is why it feels empty to some.
It reminds me of Get Togethers system, we didn't even know clubs were a thing based on the trailer, because clubs were hard to show off, and yet they've become one of the best Sims systems ever.
There are also more bad things happening, like cursing and trouble, so this is great for mischief players. While not positive, I'm pretty sure you can choose to play a strict parent who grounds for every little thing, a relaxed parent who understands things happen, or even an irresponsible parent who's never there.
Im excited for the possibilities, but we'll need an IN depth trailer to see the new system.
Edit: I just found out you can do things like pack a lunch for your kid at school Ahhh how cute!
