    I don't think they play all the dlc with new dlc since not everyone has all the dlc. But be nice if they did, they just can't show in the trailer for the new expansion.

    Well I thought a Milestone was similar to this:
    An important event in the development or history of something or in someone's life - Per Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    So a lot of what you listed sounds more like "memories" and not a "milestone". I personally would not want to be spammed with all of those things as notices, nor would I want them saved because the ones that actually meant something to my sim would get lost.

    I would expect there will be a few from other packs. I think graduation from highschool and university are likely. First snow might be another. If a human Sim becomes an occult, that might be a milestone.

    That is fantastic!
    When the pack releases, I'll definitely see what can I find and I will cross out the ones that are in game.

    While I do agree, my list was partially influenced by the fact that the first time sim had a bladder failure is there.
    Many of the things seem to be first, so I don't think it would be that spammy...

    Good list @EgonVM! And I also wanted to thank you for listing the Sims Characteristics and Conversation Topics over on luthienrising's thread. Lots of new stuff to look into when we get the pack.

    You're welcome. These really help to plan ahead how to change and play sims and families after the expansion pack comes out. Though I will have about over 616 sims to change, I have some plans for them already.
    Plus I have just also added the list of family dynamics to the thread.

    Though the list of hoped milestones does include a lot of these things that can be left out, I will cross out those that are in game. It'll be a little fun to see how many I can cross out though (I hope...)...

    List of pack milestones has been revealed in The Sims Community. Apparently, they are in the game files.

    Ok. Crossed out the things mentioned in that list.
