    Didn't read everyone's responses, but maybe it's at :50 seconds where the girl is feeding her boyfriend/husband some of her food?!

    I wish that SimGuruPizza would come on here, and tell us if one of us has guessed correctly. Because one of us could have guessed correctly by now.

    It's the shadows, in game now the light from the Windows is just a smudge of light on the ground. No shadow of the window at all!

    Nope since it's not Gameplay it's a visual

    I'm not sure if this counts as gameplay or visual, and I'm not sure if some of these glasses/cups were already in the game, but I've noticed three different types of drink glasses I personally haven't seen before.There's a designed cup with the girl in the 50s diner type restaurant, a sparkling water looking cup later on with the same girl and the nectar glasses too. The desgined cup also has something colored in it (maybe a milkshake or smoothie). Personally, I think it'd be awesome if one of the gameplay objects was a blender/juicer so we could make smoothies, milkshakes or healthy juices. I don't really know if that's significant or relevant, but just wanted to offer up something I noticed. :)

    Perhaps it's the nice sunlight streaming through the windows. I hope so and that they've been able to improve that in our game, it looks great in the photos.

    It's the teddy bear that's the secret-or I could be wrong!:

    Pretty sure that's not the thing we are searching, but quick observation: doesn't the manager from the diner (at 0:40) look a little like Gustavo Fring from Breaking Bad? Hmmm...time for "Los Polos Hermanos" in Oasis Springs! :D

    Well, if it's the lighting i'm really freaking excited!! I've wanted this since the beginning of the game, I always have a hole in my roof so I can get some natural lighting in :D

    That light looks -nice-.

    It's the teddy bear and it confirms toddlers are coming in the next major EP or GP. Hints in one pack are always in regard to the *next* one due, not the same pack.

    People are looking at the big picture most of the time. At game play.
    Even if someone notices a new deco or something he is not going to go WOW

    We need a WOW for game play not decoration or small visuals.
    Everything I post is an opinion here and I think every post of others is as well.

    There are a few more screenshots that show lightning coming through
    At 0:04 behind the group raising their glasses for a toast

    At 0:12 behind the group waiting to be seated (look to the side of both women)

    At 0:16 behind the dining family, on the walls

    At 0:44 the same restaurant as in the tweet

    Pictures are from

    It is the sunlight coming through the windows, guys! There's at least 2 hints in this pack for a Seasons EP, but we shall see. If that's the case, my faith in The Sims 4 will be restored to an extent.

    How do we know it's not just cos they took out a roof or wall section? That makes the light come through the window mesh properly
  • I8PIKACHUI8PIKACHU Posts: 571 Member
    I noticed the lighting subconsciously, but thought I didn't remember it in the base game. It's really fantastic.
    Let your soul shine through.

    Technically, we don't.
    But I doubt they did that because:

    A. Overall there is at least three individual restaurant buildings in trailers that show the light coming through. All of these do not specifically try and show much attention to the light coming through, so what would be the point of deleting a wall to enable it in all of them?

    B. In the screenshot that was also included in the tweet, if there was a wall missing anywhere on the outer walls of that restaurant, we would see the light coming through from said gap in the wall. (There is also a zoom in of same layout but with different color scheme on that restaurant that shows the walls around the table at the very top, no gaps as far as I can see).

    C. Why draw so much attention to something "visually" different in the trailer? If this lighting with removing walls was indeed a thing they do to make their trailers look visually better, why have they not been consistently removing single walls or rooftiles in all previous trailers to let the light through?
