    The Sims has currently lost its identity. Bring it back for TS5

    I don't get the appeal, do people actually want to play with active schools all the time? I would think it'd be something that gets used a couple times before everyone just ends up clicking the "send to school without joining" option and then it'll never get used again

    I don't think people are excited about the high school, but about the new type of occult which inhabits them, these dangerous irrational goblin-like things called "teenagers"

    I am on that boat, I want more sports, music bands, and the return of the comic books you could buy and collect. All of this fits a teen pack very well. Plus my favorite Sims 2 stuff pack was teen style lol

    I'm curious, if this leak is in fact real (highly questionable at this point), the survey only included gamepack, expansions, and kits? If that's true, stuff packs must be well and truly dead 😭

    High School is a nice idea for a pack, I guess. If we have active classes, cliques and in-depth stuff to keep us busy, it'd be a fun way to play with teens. But I'm hoping this isn't real. I'm tired of Expansion Packs covering niche stuff that only a few sims can/will use. I'd rather have hobbies, Generations - something that would affect a majority of sims.

    They called Eco Lifestyle Eco Living. Seems odd that EA would type the name of a pack incorrectly in an official survey 🤔

    I wouldn't be totally surprised because so many people want teen/kid stuff. I am kinda surprised it would be a full EP though.. It doesn't appeal to me personally, but I am sure if this is real, it will be popular.

    Features I'd like brought back from the dead.

    There's way too many spelling errors. I love a good leak but this one is fishy.

    I thought this was fake until I found the survey in my emails and did it this morning. When Filling out the game pack section the Werewolves game pack was listed as well even though its not purchasable yet. Also there is a kit listed that hasn't been released named Country Oasis.

    Not to be that person, but is there anyway you could post a survey link in this thread? You're not the only person reporting being able to dig up this survey, but I cannot find anything and the easiest way to get to the bottom of whether or not it is a fake is a link people can check themselves.

    I kind of hope not... The ordering of the EPs in the survey is weird and devoting two EPs to school seems like overkill. A teen-focused pack would be nice, but not something just about high school.

    That screenshot they show has a URL of ae.decipherinc.com, what is that supposed to be?

    If that’s true, I hope it’s more than just going to school, and has Generations teen family stuff. I have never used the school aspect of Discover University.

    I would have preferred a big Generations pack that covers multiple life stages…

    I need more information but I feel like this might be too small for an expansion pack? I mean, you can add dances/additional parties, classes/projects (which we've already got?), live school potentially?, a shopping mall? Those don't exist anymore?, it would be a good time to filter in a major social media bubble and potentially revamp the teacher career? Or after school jobs? Field trips or longer class trips? High school sweethearts? After school activities as more active? It could be like a baby version of the Get Famous actor career. I guess there's the different hierarchies? Assemblies I feel like would be glitchy and I'd go to maybe once... Maybe different sorts of hands-on CTE classes? I feel like a lot of it would have to be stuff that's not actually associated with high school but with being a teenager - like, sneaking out had nothing to do with high school (nobody was going to the library :lol:) but I guess the high school experience? Like how Grease was all about sex and Rock'n'Roll High School was all about the Ramones... so maybe battle of the bands? The cross-pack compatibility would be wild - I hope there are also different private schools they could go to?

    Anyway, I know I listed a lot of stuff but I still feel like a game pack until I see more and learn more information?

    I think Country Oasis is just the Courtyard Oasis kit.

    I’ve been wanting high school and teen stuff for ages so I’d love It, but I don’t want to get my hopes up until it’s confirmed.

    Not to mention there’s a lot of typos and mistakes in the packs names…..(Incheon ArrivalS; Blooming RoomS….)

    It seems like the person that made it probably wasn't supposed to release it yet and it probably was supposed to be checked for errors before it was released.

    I looked into this and it looks like decipherinc is a company that does surveys and market research; companies can create their own urls for this purpose. The one above has AE instead of EA.. Not sure what to think of that.

    Since there's going to be a High School Expansion Pack this Summer, I'm thinking of a few teen households like:
    Original Teen Wolf
    Original Grease
    X-Men
    Teen Titans
    The Facts of Life
    Original Footloose
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Pretty in Pink
    The Breakfast Club
    Weird Science

    Ok, I got a bit carried away. :D:p

    I never trust a site or person that says "this IS..." in a title over something that is clearly not confirmed by a legit source.

    Talk about click bait.. UGH

    Sorry, that is just a really big peeve of mine. I can't stand misleading titles..

    I hope it's true but who knows if so I hope it has a lot of after school activities :)
  • superkyle221superkyle221 Posts: 1,119 Member
    If it is based on Grease that means cars are coming back, and that all of the cars will fly and that they can drag race. And then you're going to have three teenaged individuals coming up to you on their tip toes begging for pride ribbons for pride month, it was a good time.

    It's not that surprising. I always thought we would get a high-school pack at some point it was just a matter of when. Plus it was on a public survey for everyone like a lot of stuff we got came from surveys including the eco pack and all of the occults.
    I do still think it's wrong for someone to leak it this early (assuming it's true)
    Leaks close to reveal doesn't seem that bad and are somewhat exciting.
    But I know how much the devs like to surprise reveal once everything is in place.
    Could still be fake though.

    And to answer the question by Onverser yes I do want to play active schools all the time. I imagine it would be more in depth then just sit in class anyway.
    Everyone went crazy for university. I still rember the rallies and I was so sick of people screaming university regardless of how uninteresting I thought the subject was 😂😂😂(still is)
    So yea I want my highschools and teens are my favorite life state.
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(
