    Slow dancing, tag (from the Sims 3), and an updated in-game video recorder that works much smoother with less lag at 1920x1080 resolution. I use Bandicam right now for taking videos, but a quality in-game video recorder would be much more convenient. On high quality at 1920x1080 resolution the game severely lags when recording with the in-game video recorder.

    Hi everyone just a few suggestions that i'm sure have been made before but what will hurt hearing it again, maybe we can get some of them done!

    1. Bigger towns. -- I'd love to see the towns expand, for example Brindleton Bay looks like it has so much potential, its small right now but being able to pan over to the left or up and down I think would make the game more enjoyable. I want to be able to build stores and maybe a neighborhood and make it actually look like a neighborhood. Being able to place new lots would be amazing and would help that along as well like we could do in sims 3.

    2. (this has just been on my mind and i've seen more people complaining about it too.) When the game updated and we got the terrain changes it no longer lets you change the terrain paint, its frustrating. If you know what would fix it please let me know. Or lets get this fixed!

    3. Build/Buy mode -- I would love to have the spiral staircases back! More realistic furniture, dont get me wrong i love all the stuff we have on there now but maybe update them a bit, make them look like they're a little more real. Like, a nice leather couch, or a sectional. I'd like to see more kids room stuff, bunk beds, toys, decorations, those kids tvs the animal/princess shaped ones. GIVE US CARS AGAIN! I would love to be able to make a small pond in my back yard with lounge chairs around it again too please!

    4. More interactive jobs -- We have 3 interactive careers right now, yes we can buy a vets office, a restaurant and retail store. But what about going into the photography career, cant we go work in a studio or own one. I would like to see more menu items for the restaurants and maybe being able to hire a buser, I think if we buy a retail store everything that is placed should have an option to be sold, I was wanting to make an appliance store but you cant sell the washers and dryers, or the dishwashers, but you can sell the fridge and small appliances.

    5. Create a sim -- I would really like to have better hair styles for everyone. The toddlers dont have much to choose from and I think thats a waste, so all around more and better hairstyles. The men need more beards and more up to fashion hair styles as well. The girls have a lot to choose from but I do think that they could be better, and adding a way for you to pick more hair color patterns like highlites, dyed tips, roots, omber and balayage. Someone had mentioned the contour makeup yes! I would love to see that in the game! More makeup options, and add finger nails, and nail polish!

    So far thats all I can think of i'm sorry none of this has pictures, I'm doing this on my phone. If something I mentioned is in fact in the game just ignore me lol I dont have every pack the game offers as of yet but i'm close. Thanks for reading :smile:

    I would love to see a Farm expansion pack!!!!!!!!!!! (Horses, Cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, farm building supplies, farming tools, horseback riding career, saddles, farming career -everything that has anything to do with farms and Horseback riding really!)

    I posted this on twitter, but I'll post it here too. I would love to see multi venues. I made this cool lot for a diner/gift shop, I realized I couldn't do it after spending hours on it.

    Also how about some slides and diving boards? Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to creat a waterpark for your Sims to play in?

    What about an 'eewww poop' moodlet that enables your sin to get grossed out by someone that has pooped or peed in the pool? I think that would just be funny and awesome XD

    I did have fashion shops and a restaurant at my resort and Sims could buy the clothes from the clothing store there. It was not owned by a Sim. But I understand what you mean we have wanted something like that for a long time now. I always wanted a mall with a restaurant. If I could sell clothing we should be able to sell anything and have a restaurant.

    I would like to own as many homes as we want and rent them out.

    Now with the Yard Sale table, you can sale you bakegoods like cupcakes and have a little bakery in your yard if your a stay at home mom, with toddlers. Its fun and people do come and buy whatever you sale.
    Maybe its not always about trying to fix something broken.
    Sometimes its about starting over and creating something better.

    1) Colour wheel for everyone, not just pets

    2) Recolour CAS & Build/Buy items with colour wheel

    3) Spiral stairs.

    4) More fireplaces, like that great 70's style stone one from the Sims 3, Chimenea Muy Caliente & free standing ones like Red Ember Freestanding Fireplace & Shiny Things, INC. "Estomago" Pot Belly Stove from the Sims 2. Also we need adjustable height chimneys. If you live anywhere which has a fire code or building code then the chimney has to be above the peak of the roof. It's basic fire safety.

    5) Microscopes, telescopes, cupcake machines & arcade machines that don't take up half a lot. What is it with the ridiculously oversized items in this game?

    4) Photo booths

    5) An actual eco stuff stuff pack, You know, with stuff like solar panels & wind turbines. NOT washing machines & tumble dryers, which are slightly less eco-friendly than a diesel pickup truck.

    6) Complete item sets, so I don't have to use 3 mismatched different windows & 2 or 3 mismatched doors on a house. Likewise for the bedroom & bathroom suites

    7) Closely related, MATCHING COLOUR SWATCHES!!! Again so I don't have to use 3 mismatched different windows & 2 or 3 mismatched doors on a house. Or mismatched bathroom suites, or everything else that's mismatched. Maybe you need to recalibrate your monitors? And you have an avocado green sink but not a toilet or bath in avocado green? To coin a phrase, "Do you even 70's, bro?"


    7) Let us apply patterns to or recolour ceilings and undersides of roofs. You had that in the Sims 2 & 3. It's remarkably difficult to do a satisfactory log cabin or A frame style house with a blazing white roof underside & ceiling.

    Afterthought closely related to 6, 7& 8:
    Let us change the channels on a colour swatch individually, like is Sims 2. Who uses a white countertop anywhere outside of a bathroom? Let me use that cabinet with the black countertop instead. Or the only duvet pattern I like in the swatches for a bed with any colour bedstead. If you can't do that then at least give us more colour swatches so we don't have to install gigabytes of CC.

    Please put matching sets together...
    Call it Sets, lol. like Bedroom Sets, Living Room Sets, Hallway Sets. Dining Room Sets, Teen Bedroom Sets, Kids Bedroom Sets, Toddler Bedroom Sets.
    Window Sets, Kids wallpaper, Toddler Wallpaper, Kitchen wallpaper, and so on.

    Please allow Sims to stop what we ask them to do within a reasonable time. Like if I ask them to play the piano, they will die before they stop.

    Please Let your Corner Couches Fit in the Corner.
    Thank you in advance.

    When we chose "Normal Walk Style" can you PLEASE make it so they walk normally until you change it to celebrity again? It's very aggravating to have to change their walk style every two minutes. Please, please, PLEASE make that option a lasting opiton

    Firstly, I would like for EA to fix the City Living's street gallery and yard sale tool for selling paintings. Which is not working yet again! Stopped after just getting somewhat repaired past this last patch in November. Before that, it was broke for a year after the C&D patch.

    Aside from that: I would like to see more stuff in the game that you could possible get from adding CC's to the game such as:
    Longer hairstyles and variety of hair colors
    More funiture styles, decorations, and pieces like in build videos
    A lot more Paintings and Artwork
    More "clutter" along with purses, briefcases, and/or luggage, tea and kettle sets
    and of course, a Create A World option would be great as there would be no more complaints about how small the no. of lots are in a world.

    I miss:
    •Mermaids, witches, fairies, werewolfs (could imagine them in one pack. Mermaids maybe in a beach pack)
    •Garages and cars (should be an update) and bikes
    •Swimming in oceans (plus I'd also like to have at least a frozen pond my sims can skate on)
    •Create a world tool (I know it is just me but I want to make an artic neighbourhood...plus my own islands)
    •Take a shower/have a bath together and woohoo in them (definitely an update)
    •Amusement parks
    •Show time careers
    •Sewing machine (child of a seamstress, it is part of my life)
    •Education [and military] career (man, how else can I make teachers?)
    •LESS BUGS and shorter loading screen

    Things I sort of miss but fine without them:
    •University (I just miss something else but I understand everyone who wants them back. If they'll be back, sims who graduated should get a bonus in their career like getting promoted twice likely or sometging)
    •Being able to make drinks from harvestables (not just from fruits but flowers. For instance from lavender. I tried lavender syrup and it was good)
    •Genies (nothing wrong with them and I think they would make my Suleinan(harem) challenge even more Arabian Nights like but I just want other lifestates more)
    https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/952768/sims-4-suleiman-harem-challenge

    Things I get why people want but I'm fine without them (yet won't mind if they get added to the game)
    •Plumbots (same with genies. Plus I like to create them with aliens)
    •Burglars (I can make some sort of burglars through clubs and I like my items at their place)
    •zombies, mummies (I don't see the point. They are annoying. Mummies are slow and zombies....I could imagine them as an npc slave summoned by witcthes but nothing else. I'm an Egyptfan but if I want to make mummies I figure my way of doing that ~~ plus U can stimulate some sort them through vampires.)
    •Unsavory Charlatan and Ms. Crumplebuttom (I'm on my way of making them😅[and moving them in the same lot with Kaylynn under the Trouble makers name,] get them in a relationship, forming their warmachine clubs)

    HUGE shout out to @akuheikomatsu for a well detailed list which helped me making my own. U deserve more awesomes.

    oh, and I forgot
    •More instruments. 🎷🎺🥁
    •Forming a band
    •More than one bartenders in bars
    •More careers for teens
    •Being able to choose your working uniform (my sim is a writer and her current uniform looks like a streetwalker's. At least after level 5 we should be able to do that or something)
  • boskos456boskos456 Posts: 65 Member

    And again, I forgot something else😅
    •Slow dancing, waltz and salsa dancing (it should be in an update or at least in the beach pack [with mermaids, scuba diving etc. or something] and it should boost your charisma and dancing skill if you have get togegher)
    •Children being able to cook

    There just needs to be more things added for one’s Sims to do especially for teens, kids and toddlers. I like doing normal every day activities.

    1. Game stuff back (more builds and places to go for teens, children, and toddlers. Pool Table, Ping Pong, Laser Tag, Face painting, slumber parties, bunk beds, build and color pottery items, dance clubs/places for teens only with a bar that only sells non-alcoholic beverages and food) Ride in Go Karts (Go Kart Racing) for all ages, miniature golf, Have a Lot Type Like Fun Zone.

    2. Date Night (more romantic interactions such as slow dancing, dancing together, walking while holding hands, sitting together, kissing forehead, laying in on top of bed together while kissing or cuddling. Go on a Picnic, sit on a blanket together. Just more romance interactions)
    University Life (attend class with other students, have teachers)

    3. Movie Stuff (Have movie theater and building the location. Or, live plays where famous sims perform. Go on dates there. Travel with friends there. ability to go to the movies with friends, stand in line at concession and purchase popcorn, candy, cotton candy, soda. Sit down and eat items while watching a movie.) Lot Type: Movie Theater.

    4. Farming would be Awesome.

    5. Visit a Zoo, Aquarium. Lot Type added for such.

    Fix it so kids don’t get calls to go to inappropriate places like clubs or parties—come on.

    Love all these ideas @Hearts4u <3 I would also like to see farming and zoo visits, picnics.

    A real bug-bear of mine is the lack of interaction initiated by the Sim that rings and asks your Sims to "go to their place" or "join them at a festival, club or anywhere"

    I would like the Sims that invite your Sim over to "hang out" to act like a host not just do their own thing once your Sim visits and when they invite you to go out with them to the various festivals. This is one of the worst interactions because there is no interaction, your Sim has to initiate everything, which shouldn't be the way if your Sim has been invited over by another Sim. Since they are hosting your Sim's visit, they should be the one initiating talking, playing chess, having a drink or meal etc.

    And your Sim has to chase them down around their house or event in order to interact with them. That is frustrating. Also, if your Sim is visiting them and they go to a room that is restricted from others, your Sim has no way of getting into that room to conversate unless you quit playing your Sim and switch Sims. By that time, your original played Sim has sometimes left the house!

    Witches
    Werewolves
    Fairies
    Genies
    Servos
    Mermaids

    Literally anything not realistic. Please, I'm drowning in realism here and I hate it!

    I would love to have gender reveal parties and baby showers. I think it would be a very cute idea to have in the Sims 4. Also more cute baby/toddler stuff. thank you
  • Jon the WizardJon the Wizard Posts: 162 Member
    I have a few things I'd like to see in the game.
    1. Witch, Fairy and Werewolf life state. In fact, Supernatural expansion.
    2. Super-long female hair. Like, mid-back and longer.
    3. Sims 4 version of Monte Vista.
    4. Bass guitars and Bass Guitar skill. In both upright and electric versions.
    5. Martial Arts skill.
    6. Maid/Butler career, with the career paths being Bodyguard (focused on Fitness and Martial Arts skill) and Eyes and Ears of the House (focused on various skills, including Gourmet Cooking, Mixology, Logic, Violin and Handines.
    7. Nectar Making skill and Nectar Connoisseur career, with the career paths being Vintner (focused on the Nectar Making skill) and Keeper of the Vines (focused on Nectar Making and Gardening).
    8. Gambling, including a Gambling skill and Casino community lot. Could be a Game Pack, would probably work best as one.

    You guys are doing a incredible job. So far this is my favorite sims of all of them. This thought popped in my head. It would be great if you could have teen's floop on bed's and couch's like most do IRW. what do you think??
  • Lolli999Lolli999 Posts: 16 Member
    I think it would be lovly if you could drive your own family resturant, where the family can take all the roles, waitering, hosting and cooking instead of hirering.

    In addition to I love the gardening stuff for my sims. Therefore at farmers pack would be the best expansion ever.
    I really hope that this pack will be developed and contain, the ability to harvest crops, having farm animals and other tings like that.

    Yes, @MsKatieRose Even when your Sims has been asked on a date, again your Sim, not the Sim that asked your Sim has to do all the talking and interaction so your Sim may as well have initiated the date not another one. So annoying! :/

    Thumbs up, EA and your team are really making lots of big improvements, in furniture, and clothing.
    So you do hear us. :)
    This is little, but irritating, When our Sim get a call to go out to a restaurant, we should not have to pay at all or just pay for our dinner.
    As it is now its like they ask you out to get a free meal. Maybe you can get them to offer to pay. Before you say you're going and instantly your there.

    I have had Sims ask me to meet them at The Sweet Secret Cafe, which is an inexpensive restaurant. and when I arrive they are at the most expensive restaurant.
    Maybe its not always about trying to fix something broken.
    Sometimes its about starting over and creating something better.
