August 19th- It's time for our Friday Highlights! You can check them out here!

Cactuses

What is with all the cactuses? There are cactuses and nods to the American southwest littered throughout the trailer for the new teen pack. Also the roadmap has a bunch of cactuses on it. Do you think it's a hint for something?

    That is something I'd like to know too. Would be nice to be able to grow them too, not just have them as decorations.

    I know it is probably unlikely, but I wonder if we are getting another free basegame world like newcrest, except southwest themed. It would be nice to have somewhere else that is warm nearly year round. I get sick of snow.

    Maybe the "style" kit isn't cas like a lot of us assume it to be. But rather things related to a theme, that could potentially fit with growing cacti.

    If it is that I hope there is a 64x64 lot somewhere on the map. We don’t have a single one in any desert world! Well, there’s the secret lab lot in StrangerVille but you can’t build on that without mods so I don’t think it really counts tbh

    Personally I just assumed because that seems to be the in-style trend right now, boho and minimalist vibes. I didn't take any of it as a hint towards something coming. Look at any trending modern interior design styles and you'll find a bunch of wall art with succulents and cactus, tropical leaves, etc. Especially the line-art kind or flat art.

    This is exactly what I'm thinking. Heck, I even have a cactus shirt I got from Target. :sweat_smile:

    @Chicklet453681 @SimplyJen I knew I wasn't the most in touch person when it comes to trends, but I never even considered that. I mean I know of it, but I saw those and immediately thought of Southwestern art and building styles. I have wanted those things forever and I thought I was going to have them. I like that line art, but that is a huge letdown from what I was dreaming of. I still want the kit, but I have a broken heart to deal with first.💔

    I don't know, it seems odd that they would include so many just because it's on trend... but maybe you're right. Guess we will see eventually.

    Actually theres quite many themes they might be thinking of doing desert for

    i mean :
    driving cars etc desert= epic
    showtime desert = continuation of del sol + common theme
    horses desert = wild west baby
    gambling in desert = tell me bout it
    hotels in desert =another common theme

    that all PLUS the fact that last few worlds we have had were woodsy lawn worlds and maybe its time to have something else

    although if we are to consider it hint for this road map only for obvious reasons its probably build kit related

    My guesses:
    1. An update of the townies in Oasis Springs. I would be very shocked if we didn't get the Calientes and the Landgraabs fixed.
    2. A kit that has to do with desert style.

    I would love to have hotels and casino’s…..but that would take at least a game pack.

    This is a great guess, if they are a hint, it could be a hint for the Oasis Springs townies update...

    Most build kits are based on sims freeplay updates, here you can see some examples:

    A few months ago there was a mexican update, with cactuses among new items. So hacienda decor is most likely the theme of the next kit.

    Ohh… something more for the desert worlds would be a nice. I need a little bit of variety.

    Mariachi would be lovely and day of the dead calendar tradition and quinceanera parties.

    The southwestern kit was my first guess. I hadn't even thought of an Oasis Springs refresh, but that would make a lot of sense too. I do think what ever it is will be related to the southwestern US because of the UFO hint.

    Cacti is the plural form of cactus. We shall see what it brings, one way or another.

    @GalacticGal

    The OP used the word correctly.

    Cacti is the Latin plural of cactus, and for English speakers is a more popular usage. Cactuses is the English plural, and is also completely acceptable to use. Dictionaries list both as a correct form, leaving it up to the user which they prefer.

    I googled plural form of cactus when I made the original post because I wasn't sure if it was cacti or cactuses lol. I appreciate you.

    The name of the kit is "Desert Luxe"

    Well if that might be Mexican-themed build kit, Latin station should come back to the base game like the previous Sims series
