    Oooooooh... I really hope this is a throwback to The Sims 2. If I recall correctly, in TS2 using the telescope increased your chances of the lot being hit by a meteor, which could be fatal. (I lost one of my favorite sims this way.) However, you could also sell the meteor for $$$$$$. It would also be interesting if this time around, you could get new collectables from the meteor as an alternative to selling it. (I mean, I'd like both options.)
    Nah. It was a falling satellite, and you could only die from it by star- or cloud-gazing while laying on the ground. But it'd be great if they went with your idea for Sims 4.

    If we do get a meteor, there could be a living creature inside. For any Pokemon fans here, you might remember that Kyurem came from a meteor crash-landing in Unova. And what's Kyurem? A dragon. BOOM! Dragons confirmed, baby.




    Ah, yes, that's right, it was a satellite rather than a meteor. Same general idea, though, of being potentially crushed by something falling from the sky. I would be happy with either. As I recall, it was genuinely a bit scary (and I was already an adult by the time TS1 came around.) Like the sky would start to get ominously dark, and then there was a loud noise, and maybe even flames? Maybe I'm remembering it more dramatically than it actually happened. But it does seem like they could partially reuse some of the effects from the volcano/lava in Sulani, so maybe there's hope.

    And it may have mostly happened by stargazing on the ground, but I'm absolutely certain it happened to my previously mentioned favorite sim while she was looking through her telescope. Maybe it was just more rare for it to happen that way. Or maybe my game was bugged. Regardless, I'm hoping the skull emoji is a hint to that coming back.

    @Amapola76 Is thinking of TS3.
    Death by meteor is a form of death in The Sims 3, introduced in The Sims 3: Ambitions.
    Using a telescope outside increases the chances of getting hit by a meteor.

    Well, it's possible that I was combining them in my memory, as I played both TS2 and TS3. But what I was picturing specifically was the first time I encountered some version of this, which was in TS2. As I said, one of my favorite sims died that way (though as I now recall, by satellite), which was also one of my first-ever encounters with Grim.

    Therefore: GREG IS WEREWOLF!
    Now we just need to find out which werewolf

    I think Greg is the person who lives on this lot and doesn't like werewolves.

    but they said only sim thats not werewolf in town is Celene so either they're lying or Greg is werewolf

    As far as I've seen, this is the only mention of Celene.

    It doesn't explicitly say she isn't a werewolf. Sure, it's the sentence after it mentions one none wolf townie which may lead us to think it's her.
    They are being mysterious about Greg though and this is ambiguous enough to be a red herring.

    5 lots is really disappointing. I would have need 7-8 to be satisfied. 3 for community lots, 2 for rival pack, 1 for my pack and 1 for myself. But I do like the idea of a one neighborhood world for this pack.

    I don’t mind the look of werewolves. But I’m also not the target audience. I do always enjoy doing at least one play through with the occults. Hope there is a new death.

    I’m getting this packs for the CAS/BB. Love the grunge style. The bassinet and toddler bed are so cute. But they really had me at a regular sized telescope.

    Did they confirm only 5 lots? If so I'll reserve judgment until I'm staring at it on my monitor. I already had Henford planned as my fall back if the new world didn't work out.

    Yes. 1 neighborhood, 5 lots. Like vampires pack.

    Sounds like Henford it is. I won't entirely rule it out but I was ready for this.

    Your English is excellent, following strict English grammar you would expect Celine to be a none wolf.
    Either way, Greg in my head is a grizzled old human of a certain stereotype and will become so in my saves, heh.

    From what I could make out on this small screen, it looks like werewolves will have digging abilities. Do they have enhanced skills at finding collectibles? Are we getting some new collections?

    I love that they can run on all fours!! I was really hoping they would be able too. I want to go home and see that trailer again, but this time in hires sooo bad!

    AH-OOOOOOO 🌕🐺

    Except that wild boars are rather magnificent creatures compared to all the pictures I've seen of Sims 3 werewolves. :hushed:

    The world gives me rural Pacific Northwest vibes (either US or Canada) except maybe for the brick... love it
    Flannel! More flannel! Broken stuff! Scars! Dingy things! Graffiti in addition to those 3 graffitis I'm tired of from Get Together!

    Lots of wolf-pack gameplay which is what I was hoping for the most

    And WERE-TODDLERS

    And the premades look cool too.
