I hope Sims 5 looks like this
My Families Via PlumTree App
I am liking the development of Life by You and I like it more than Paralives in which I do not care for the artwork too much but Life by You artwork is similar to the Sims 2 and 3 but more enhanced and if that video is true to how it looks or play, I am there day one.
Me too especially if we can create our own worlds like in Sims 3

I really want grocery stores and live in businesses. A bakery, dress shop, or an art gallery with an upstairs apartment or a Bed and Breakfast would be a lot of fun. A jewelry shop where sims could buy stuff that would then appear in their CAS would be amazing. Even the dress shop/clothier idea would be fun if the outfits your sim bought there turned up in their CAS or closet. The jewelry store idea could include functional jewelry boxes in BB.
If we get open worlds and cars a car dealership could be interesting too. Kind of like when we went to the curio shop in TS3 and shopped for things like potions and the selection was always changing. Or the vendor tables in Selvadorado or the flea markets in San Myshuno.

Schemes and Dreams
I know color and graphics are subjective topics. We all like different things. For me, variety is a necessity. I like neighborhoods where every house has a different color scheme! That's why I hope we have choices so those who like like cream, tan, brown neighborhoods can have them, but I can have pinks, blues, and bright yellows.
Yes especially with the color wheel/ Workshop tool that comes in Sims 5. You could create a completely dark house or a colorful pastel one.
I really hope Sims 5 changes to an open world game with an open beach town similar to Sims 3. The formula is perfect.

Your ideas are awesome! I'm with you 100%!!!
You can travel to any lot in the neighborhood without a loading screen. But if you were in Willow Creek and you wanted to travel to Windenburg, you would have to go through a loading screen. That way we could have openness, but it would be less taxing on our computers. However, I don't want the neighborhood broken up in tiny sections of 2-5 lots. I want 12-15, so my neighborhoods can be served by community lots/spaces that I can build. Any fake homes should be on the perimeter. I want all my playable homes near each other.
I believe they should conceptually plan all neighborhoods in advance, (not in full detail) and determine their placement and distance.
When they bring each one in the game, they should determine which sims you would see as visitors and pedestrians in the world, according to how far away the live from that world. In that way, you wouldn't see Nancy Landgraab in Sulani and in the next moment in Oasis Springs.
They should have to have some king of percentage for sims in the neighborhood.
-70% Sims in homes and homeless sims assigned to that neighborhood.
-25% Sims from nearby neighborhoods.
-5% Sims from distant neighborhoods. (And you rarely see the same sim twice, unless they are close friends with someone living there)
Oh and this time plan for cars.
The need to make a placeable driveway that lets you place it wherever you want on the street edge of the property and deforms the sidewalk to connect to the street.
Definitely want to see an open world with CAW options and build tools that the creators and builders have been asking for for years. This includes bringing back vehicles to travel in.
Don't want to see:
1. Worlds with just a few lots.
2. Subscription fees.
4. Loading screen everytime you travel from lot you are currently in.
5. Apartments/buildings you can't improve to taste with a build tool.
6. Forced to wear outfits that don't match.
7. Packs that are of poor quality and have very little content which seems to be a rush job for a quick money grab.
8. Problems with bugs everytime a new pack comes out.
I'm sure there are several other things that don't come to mind at the moment, but these issues have been beaten to death imo since the creation of 4. So if the devs haven't gotten the message by now, it's on them.
I would be extremely disappointed if that happens!
I want Sims 3‘s big open world towns to return.
You can literally walk ANYWHERE and find collectibles like seashells, flowers, gemstones and butterflies in hidden places throughout the world. This collecting aspect was so much fun! In Sims 4 you don‘t need to search for collectibles since the worlds are SO SMALL.
I’m not sure if I want one big world or a smaller one with a max of 15 lots. The smaller world would run better but it’s the exploring of the map that I like so much about TS3.
I would like that too, but I just simply doubt they will do it.
