I originally posted this in the Supernatural forum, but since I guess they are done with development and probably' haven't made it in Supernatural, I think that this idea is still good enough to go in virtually any future EP coming up!
(This is exactly what I wrote there, but can still carry over all the same!
I think that the release of Supernatural is the perfect opportunity to give our Sims flashlights that they can use!
I am not sure if this would work, as I do not know if the game can show a moving light source, inside or outside of a lot. But this feature would be extremely useful in this EP if we had it!
For example, we could light up the area around our Sims with a flashlight in the midst of a zombie apocalypse to hide from the zombies!
Or we can just explore the world at night! Which is something that bugs me a lot.
Every time that I try to walk outside to search for collectibles at night, it is too dark to be able to see anything! This really bugs me.
If it is possible to make flashlights, I think that it would be a wonderful idea to make them in this EP! It's ok if we get them later, though.
Another idea that I had would be to have 2 kinds of "flashlights:"
1) Lanterns: Your Sim would hold a lantern, and it would light up the ground and walls around our Sims as they move.
2) Flashlights: These would light up a circle of ground or wall near our Sims as our Sims move, and perhaps we could select what direction and the location that the flashlight is pointing at!Suggested ideas:
1) wishinstonez brought up the idea of having actual torches with our Sims, too, to function sort of as lanterns!
2) ezeliastarsong suggested that we could make our Sims make shadow puppets in case we (or they) get bored!

I know that it is possibly too late to make these, or even impossible. But I was just thinking that this would be nice to have! Something new and fresh, with new gameplay! 8)
