WASD Movement?

Dear all of The Sims 4 Gurus,
I have a request. May you please add an option to the game, for movement with the W,A,S,D buttons?
That will be really comfortable like many other games, and will be much more realistic.
The arrow buttons will be fine too.
Thank you very much! :)

    Movement such as? Moving the Sims? Pets? Objects? I don't think it can get any easier than point-and-click or click-and-drag. I also fail to see how adding those keys would be more "realistic."

    cant you set them up in options anyway as hotkeys ?

    I personally find it much easier using just the mouse

    How is continually pressing W (or appropriate key) any easier than just clicking "go here"? What I really want to see instead is when you click "go here" the Sim doesn't go and decide to do 20 different things on its own instead. :roll:
    It's kind of sad that I have to point out that anything I say is only just my opinion and may be a different one from someone else.

    ^ Yup. Sims are so derpy when it comes to routing.

    No thanks, that makes it seem like more of an RPG to me.

    What I THINK the OP is talking about is camera movement. I'm sure most of us move the camera with the mouse, but I know you can move it with the arrow keys as well. I'm not sure about the WASD keys. It's probably more comfortable for the OP because many pc games use those keys for movement and the mouse for other things at the same time.

    I am not sure how WASD makes the game more realistic. Personally, I prefer the Sims to move just like they are now. It's not really like you're trying to move the character and click on combat moves at the same time.

    That's just my preference. If it were optional that you could toggle on or off I wouldn't object to it.

    As you can change the camera styles, a WASD (instead of a point and click) for sim movement option would be a cool idea!

    I would see through a better camera angle, and it really would add a perspective to the sim, versus a doll-house view. But I would still like the classic option.

    the OP is talking about moving the sims. In RPGs and MMORPGS and pretty much any game ever on the PC, you move your character with WASD or the arrow keys.

    I think they meant the sims walking around with the arrow keys, not the camera.

    I am pretty sure WASD already controls the camera movement in TS3
