-Ability to connect foundations that have different heights.
- Also should be able to connect a platform to a foundation , even with a different height between them.
- Should have curved pools already.
- Need to be able to have homes attached, but able to each function as single family residences.
- Color wheel

Building on half -tile . Not being able to place a wall or fence in the middle of the "squares" is very limiting!!

This feature likely will have to wait for sims 5, but players shouldn't have to use mods like t.o.o.l (which is amazing btw) to elevate and rotate objects . Thats basic. And we need in-game feautures like that for the next gen game, at least.

This game needs a path/sidewalk tool, for people to make custom walkways. Ideal for making parks. Terrain paint is limited.

    Yes to ALL of this. I will add that it would be nice to have fences that can be wall height or even taller. Or have fences that can be stacked on top of one another to have two-story or taller barriers for those of us who want to build castles.

    It would also be nice to be able to place a door or doorway right at the top of stairs. A lot of houses have steps right outside the door. Being able to push terrain up against the edge of walls that are sunken into the ground a bit would be nice so we could have basements that poke slightly above ground and can have windows, window wells, etc.

    I really don't like how you can't connect a garage without foundation to a house with foundation easily. It would be nice to have that option. Say I want to have an indoor pool but not up in foundation and I want to have an attached garage. At the very least they should let us have ramps to be able to transition into a garage if they won't let us have split level.

    -Backsplash. Most modern American homes have backsplash tiles now in kitchen and bathrooms.

    Can we get more sport items and gym equipment like football and tennis pitches, pole vault, gymnastics, ballet etc? Also would love a African Safari world with animals like giraffes, lions elephants. The sims can have the ability to own or explore the safari on holiday. The safari can be based in East/southern Africa vibe and also have a Wakanda feel to it. West African dancing/food/culture/dresses etc. Just an idea, it will definitely make me want to play the game more.

    YES to all of these! I was bummed that in 2018 the patch made it so you can no longer connect rooms (using moveobjects on) and the roofs get deleted. I get they don't want different wall heights next to one another, but maybe they could just have a step down or let someone add platforms or have different height walls. Like, say I want a room with taller walls next to a room with shorter walls and foundation that makes the walls have the same top height. Or even just have a short step down from one room to another.

    I'd also like for stairs to go right up against a door or doorway instead of one tile away.

    With curved walls added (which I'm still trying to figure out how to use) I would love to have spiral stairs.

    LOVE the idea of being able to adjust stairs more. Gutters and drains would be nice. I'd also love to have more ceiling detail.

    In addition to roof windows I'd like basement windows with window wells, foundation windows/vents (or allow foundation to serve as higher part of a basement).

    I'd also like arrow slits (like on a castle) and windows without glass.

    My idea is to modify the room pop-up (that appears when you click on a room) so that you can denote the type of room it is. This can be used to regulate sim behavior. Denote a room as the living room, the sim is compelled to use appropriate actions in that room. It can also be used to ban sims from performing certain actions in inappropriate rooms, like eating in the bathroom. (except during that oh so tragic period in high school.....)
    Too restrictive, they going to list ten million types of rooms you could have?
    ...oh wow I was reading an old thread while having this open and found that they'd considered basically this idea and didn't think it was a good one: https://forums.thesims.com/en_us/discussion/comment/12652626/#Comment_12652626
    This idea can be further expanded with the possibility to place multiple homes and families on one lot. You can define multiple homes and businesses in the lot type dropdown, and then further define the individual rooms that belong to which household or business. Naturally there will be a common room type, that's loaded by all lots. These “mini-lots” can have their own households attached to them, similar to how apartment living has multiple households that appear to share the same lot.
    This isn't 'expanded' this is a completely different idea. I don't think they should build one-lot-being-many-lots out of single-rooms-have-purposes, that wouldn't work efficiently. First you'd have to stick a bunch of rooms together, every time. And how would it handle non-room parts of the lot, like most gardens of most houses? And multi-story buildings sounds fragile. And sticking rooms together doesn't segue well into
