    I can't wait to see what the Sims look like! Sims 4 is the first version I've not needed any CAS cc so hope that will be the case with Project Rene.
    💚 TS4
    Things are as they are. Always hope. But never expect.

    I have not been silent about my wanting TS5 (in my mind, it couldn't come soon enough), so I'm very pleased it's officially out in the open and we can discuss it freely instead of feeling like it's a "dirty little secret" that gets shoved clear to the underbelly of the forum, like The Fight Club.

    “The First Rule Of TS5 Is: You Do Not Talk About TS5. The Second Rule Of TS5 Is: You Do Not Talk About TS5.”

    And, I'm super stoked that they are bringing back some form of the colorwheel and a CASt type option!!!

    Because honestly when I saw the interview from years ago with James Turner and Lindsay Pearson, he asked about there wasn't some form of it in TS4 and essentially she said because it caused performance issues

    So at best I thought we might get something similar to how TS2 was done where parts of the mesh were separated and had their own texture so it could be changed.

    Although that system was innovating for the time, it also was horrible in the fact that every single recolor was its own .package file and it was nothing to have like 50 packages just to recolor the exact same object (like bedding)!

    But it was also nice that all those recolors all attached to that object and you could easily view them in the catalog of that one item, unlike recolors for TS4 where they're all their own packages and they take up a lot of catalog space (and endless scrolling!)

    But, I'm trying not to get too excited since it's a super, super, super long way away from releasing.

    I'd like to see things like height difference, more body type presets, and more customization to their bodies. I would love to see hair physics. Long hair that moved realistically instead of being static would be cool.

    I noticed some nice quality-of-life features like being able to favorite buy mode objects.

    I have a small bit of hope for this game, the gameplay they showed had some really great ideas. But overall I am worried.

    As someone who really really likes sims 4 but just struggles with some of the basic design of it, I’m glad that this is coming. The weakest part of sims 4 is its core, so this is an excellent opportunity for them to build something that is fit to expand upon for years and years to come.

    Things like dine out and my wedding stories just don’t function right because the base game wasn’t designed for that sort of gameplay. I’ve always bought into the theory that sims 4 wasn’t meant to be what it is and was repackaged from an online game so a new base game built from the ground up with clear understanding of what it is and will turn out to be is a great idea.

    The phone support and online is a little worrying though it can work if they do it in the right way. I just hope they focus on making the best single player PC/Console experience first and foremost and EA don’t get too greedy. People are happy to buy packs, they just want the game to be good.

    I'm super excited to see how the game develops and comes together. I'm really happy they are bringing back the Create A Style with some added features. I hope it works in the long run because I know it could be tricky with Sims 3 but it was one of my favorite features of the game. I also like the placing accent feature they showed. I know it's early development but it's been something I think the game has needed.


    I too can't wait to see what the sims look like but I'm sure whatever early view they show won't be the final product, but still it'll be very exciting to see how it develops.

    Same here! I'm hoping they'll resemble Sims 4 Sims, but in way higher quality.

    I’m actually really looking forward to seeing this project grow.

    The more I rewatch this part of the summit, the more impressed I am. The colour wheel and choosing patterns is great to see again. I love the cushion placement as well.
    Grouping items is also really good.

    Next, I would love to see what the Sims will look like.

    Although I wonder if Rene means rebirth, the name will be just The Sims or the The New Sims or Sims - The next generation 🧬🤔🤷🏼‍♂️?
    I love building in The Sims 4 👷👨🔧💻

    Apartments in the base game! Thankfully. Now we can move newly created CAS families into apartments. No 20,000 simoleon handouts to immediately buy a home.

    I have a weird but good feeling that seasons will be added on base game or at least rain and wind. I think they can finally make it work.

    I don't want to get my hopes to high, but the thought of a new Sims game is so exciting. I am definitely growing tired of how broken TS4 has become and its lack of depth gets upsetting, so I am hoping with a new, more advanced and up-to-date game engine they can pull off a really good game. Also, I also hope you are right about basic weather. I definitely think it's possible and it would be great to have that in BG to enhance gameplay at the start.

    They can pull off anything with the Unreal Engine, provided the devs have the knowledge to do so. Which I'm sure they do. I really hope they bring back customization to the game again and expand on it. I also miss the quirky fun of Sims 1 and 2. Random lady jumping out of a cake? Yes, please! Aspiration failure? Bring it on! Making Magic 2.0? Definitely.

    Oh yes please! I miss that so much
