Others or multiple choices, please reply.

I think high schools, cinemas, bus stops, shops, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, courts, prisons, aquariums and amusement parks can all be included in the base game.

    Private Car & Swimming Pool
    For me swimming pools are absolutely essential, I missed them same as everyone else was missing toddlers.

    That said, they're setting themselves up for utter chaos again, if they do not include a solid groups/clubs system in the BG. EPs should be able to expand that barebones system, make it more complex and flavoured for the pack in question. The way University and Werewolves had to re-invent clubs without being able to re-use the one they already sold us with Get Together left both student societies and wolf packs lacking.
    Now playing: "Let's Investigate!" - a Reality TV show based on the detective career. Link to story thread: Let's investigate

    Most of these things are maxis' big money makers, as much as I like free stuff, I want to HAVE a sims 4 not some "we ran out of budget" game, also pools are already in the base game. (sorry if that came off as harsh)
    Yes, I play big families in the sims. please add crawling babies and pre-teens, My mom played sims 1 and 2 now I play 4, its just family tradition at this point

    Hello Simmers!

    Happy 2023! im going to repeat myself, and as i have pleaded before
    Spiral Staircases would be nice! they would work nice in micro or
    tiny homes, that should be included in the basegame, and not have to
    rely on mods. does anyone agree?

    From existent features i'd like to see medicine, scientist, politics and military careers(at least as non-active), singing and dancing skills, temperatures (we alredy have clothes category for it and we're able to have ghosts with this death type trait), reputation (not fame), acne, unlocked lot traits from City Living(most of them feel more house fitting rather than apartments). For new features i wish we had landlines, newspaper(net and delivery), brightness and saturation sliders for hair colors, cemetery (and funerals), aspiration bar influencing mental health, body scars(top surgery), bus stop and animation(we don' want sims to dissapear in the air), sleepover, create a festival, babysitting and hand working job being active, spiral and diagonal stairs and interactions with aquarium fishes, frogs and aliens like feed, watch, talk to, pick up, pet and set free.

    I would have liked to see layering for clothing, as well as distinguishing between indoor clothing and outdoor clothing (surely nobody wears shoes inside their own house) but it's presumably too late for Sims 4 now, and I really don't think I can start from scratch a 5th time.

    Private Car & Swimming Pool
    Cars and swimming pools have always come with Sims base games sadly Sims 4 messed that up since it was so rushed
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"
  • LucaslovesgamesLucaslovesgames Posts: 49 Member
    All of the above definitely.

    Zodiac Signs & Blood Types
    I think Zodiac Signs can be associated with Seasons and should be included in the base game. Pets should also be included in the base game.

    I didn't realize swimming pools were not included in the base game :open_mouth:

    I want to see more representation for disabilities, like blind people, wheelchair-bound people, amputees with prosthetics, and more body scars. EA is on the right track by adding hearing aids for deaf people, top surgery scars, binders, and shape wear for transgender individuals, and I'd like that to continue.

    I don’t know will we get changing table for infant & maybe toddlers free in the base game. But if not, I think we should get it free in the base game like in the sims 2.

    I'm voting aliens and planet Sixam... but Sixam needs to be a livable place. I mean, if an alien kid wishes to return to Sixam and live with their people, they can't right now- they can only visit.

    From this point of TS4:
    • Lawn mowing
    • Water heaters
    • Swimming pool cleaning
    • Spiral stairs
    • More swimming pool tools
    • Attics
    • Woodchopping
    • Heat/cold waves
    • Zodiac

    For TS5: dust, laundry, pets and seasons
  • g01denswang01denswan Posts: 966 Member
    Retail shops and restaurants so sims can buy their groceries, clothing, furniture, etc. from brick and mortar places again.

    Zodiac Signs & Blood Types
    The way I voted on Zodiac Signs and blood types, Sims 2 did not have blood type, but they did have Zodiac Signs that played a role in how a Sim would react in the game.
    That said, Since Sims 1, things that would most likely be included in the game was sold as separate packs. For Sims 1 and Sims 2, I think the technology wasn't there yet to get all the packs in, especially in Sims 2. Sims 1 started it all, but Sims 2 added more to it.
    For me Sims 3 and Sims 4 followed the formula, but to me it feels more like they are doing it to get more money, versus actually finding ways to put the pack in without it affecting previous packs. Sims 3 is on the fence, because it felt like a cash grab in some areas, but also felt like it expanded on Sims 1 and Sims 2.
    Sims 4 seems a bit more like a cash-grab to me, and I do have it, but I have been waiting to buy new packs. Of course, with occult packs, I buy is regardless of what I feel about Sims 4.

    Small updates that EA should add for better gameplay! You can comment our ideas in the comments. To make it short I will only state one idea. sims should move in with a household and only be able to control specific sims. For example. Sim 1 and sim 2 got married. We get the option to move in, we click yes. Select which sim we want to control and which sim we do not want to control. Basically live with a household of NPC.
