Neighborhood Editor

Would you like a neighborhood editor tool inside game options to allow you to remove trees, shrubs, other objects (playground equimpment etc.) in the common spaces? And also allow you to place objects in common spaces without having to place things on Sims' head with cheats to move those things to common/open spaces. I would like to change trees, shrubs, and add things like a chess table, or other useful objects out in open spaces. How do you vote? I know many of us want CAW, but if it never happens what about a neighborhood editor like we had in TS3?

ETA: This poll will not show how you voted personally, you may comment on how you voted.

No, who cares, I don't want to customize the open spaces in TS4.

TS4 without Terrian Tools is like Windows 8 or 10 without the Start Menu.

    I mean, of course I want to edit the neighbourhoods, but I doubt we'll be able to

    If we keep asking for this, the developers will add it, which would be great!
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    I've wanted a simple neighbourhood editor like you describe since Day 1. But I suspect that the reason we don't have this is because they'd break our saves or remove all our work if they update anything in those spaces.

    Man, if people were able to create their own neighborhoods for TS4, we'd never run out of space to build on, which is a thing I know several builders have been requesting. I've seen some fanmade concepts for neighborhoods which looked amazing, too!

    I could see it happening if they just gave us the tools for it. Allowing us to create an image file for the blank map screen, place the lots yourself, backdrops for every subhood we included into it, custom parallax icon, things like that.

    Sure, with the way the worlds in Sims 4 is set up, it does seem to require a lot more artistic skill overall to make it match the game (unless they provided us with assets to use, as well as the ability to make our own), but in the hands of great creators, it would be amazing to see what the community would come up with!

    I'd love this too. I've seen some great fan made Sims 4 maps around and while I probably wouldn't do a lot of custom map making myself, I would like to play some of the things I've seen others come up with.

    It's so annoying that we can't even place a bench or picnic table in the common space outside the lots.
    I want to edit my neighborhoods NOW!
