    hello @SimGuruDrake will washers and dryers be added in ep3 or will those be added in a future ep or as dlc? - We aren't able to answer this as it is specifically being asked in relation to "future content" - SGD

    Is the team working on some game fixes for dine out? I ask because my sim won't stay seated she keeps trying to get food from the restaurants fridge.

    Will we ever see customizable aging and pregnancy sliders? Options to turn certain features (like supernaturals) on/off per save?

    This they probably can't answer, because it relates to stuff in development ie future content. However, it does deserve a bug report. Before you report it however, try disabling your mods and custom content and see if that still happens. If not, a bug in a mod was probably the culprit. I have never had this happen in my game, though I have had Sims stand up to drink the beverage they ordered with their food. I do also "order for table" immediately after my Sims sit down.

    - Is it possible to add more life stages and life states to TS4? NPCs?
    - Is it possible to add cars and other forms of transportation?
    - Are we getting more patched in neighborhoods like Newcrest, or bigger lots? Will editing be possible in TS4?
    - Will there be new venues and recreational activities added?
    - Will the sims ever get new careers, aspirations and traits?

    Thanks :)

    How long does it take from the beginning development stages to completion, to develop an expansion pack or major game feature?

    I don't have any mods. I didn't think fixes would be considered new content but yes I did report it.

    Would it be possible to add an option of "grab a drink together" or "call guests to drink" on objects like the drinks trays and drinks you make on the bar/coffee machine? Also, would it be possible to add an option of "order drink for Sim/group" on the Get Together barista bar like we can on mixologist bars? Many thanks! :smiley:

    Hi team. I would really like to see spiral stair cases, round rooms and round roofs, are they going to be available in the future as an update or stuff pack? Maybe more lots added to our town's?

    Who makes the pre-made sims that come with the worlds? Is there a team or just one person?
    How did you come up with the ideas for the dance moves in Get Together? They are super cute!
    Are there fx deer in Windenburg? This has seriously been plaguing me for ages!
    Who wrote all the relationship descriptors? Some of them are a hoot! "Sometimes your gut tells you it's all wrong. And then you tell that gut to be quiet." and Things started out friendly, but then it got weird..." in particular crack me up. :D
    *edited, opps sorry forgot the future content rule so deleted a question.

    Why did you remove sim memory timelines from the game and mashed them up all together in the "screenshot manager"?

    Would it be possible to code for more than one hospital crib to show up on the hospital when twins/triplets etc are born instead of a normal crib show up for the second baby?

    Would it be possible to change happy's iddle face expression on sims so that it matches "fine" and make them smile only when they are "very happy"?

    Hi! In what type of pack the larger chairs will appear??In a game pack por in a expansión pack?
  • SimaniteSimanite Posts: 4,833 Member
    Would it ever be possible to stop townies from being generated, or from generating so often? An example being, what if I created a lot of Sims and added them to my world but didn't move them into a lot. Couldn't they then be used to take on the role of townies, or (as I imagine) is it a lot more complicated than that? Many thanks again. :)

    Hi Gurus! So my question is really simple (I think hahaha). How many people are in the "Patch" team? And do they have a "limited budget" to produce new things to the game for free? Thank you for this thread, it's really good to see that you guys want to increase the relationship with the players. :)<3
