Could you move cakes to the baking section rather than in the normal "cooking" section. It fits better with what you're actually doing "baking a cake" rather than "cooking a cake". Baking is also in the shadows of standard cooking, hence it would make a better use of the baking skill, where you would have to progress to unlock new themes of cakes for your sims birthday parties.

There's a draggable bassinets mod here, @Eldircora: https://www.deichschafblog.de/s4/sonstige-mods/
Knitting! My grandmother taught my sister and cousins how to knit as children, and now they're well into their 30s and they still do it to this day. Knitting would be a great way to unlock new cold-weather outfits since there's a startling lack of those. Scarves, mittens, sweaters, coats, and layered combinations of all of the above, there's so much potential here. And since cold-weather outfits are part of the base game, this content need not be exclusive to Seasons!
Babysitting! Let's face it, we could hire a Nanny, but every new mother I know calls on her own mother for help looking after the wee ones. Why not give us the opportunity to call our Sims' parents over instead of hiring a Nanny?
New Walk Styles! Walking sticks, rollators... you get the idea.
Grandparent-Grandchild Interactions: "You know, back in my day..." that sort of thing. Let's have our Elders impart their knowledge onto their grandkids- this could be as simple as giving a Child or Teen Sims a head-start on a skill that the Elder has a high level in, or inspiring the grandkid to have a high-scoring Whim to join the same career as their grandparent.
Family Recipes! When a Sim reaches Adulthood, they might gain the ability to craft a Family Recipe. And, once they're an Elder, they could then pass on that recipe to younger family members, who can then pass it down to their descendants. Lumpy Mashed Potatoes, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Grandma's Comfort Soup (from TS2), you know, proper, homestyle cooking, just like Grandma used to make!
New Traits! Sims who age up from Teen to Young Adult get bonus Traits in Parenthood, but I'd like to see something similar happen in the transition from Adult to Elder, perhaps as a consequence of reaching max level in a Career, or seeing your children grow up well. These could range from the negative- "Forgetful" might make Sims refresh their Whims at a more frequent rate (no need to make it full-on Dementia after all!), to the positive- "Retirement Fund" might allow Elder Sims to gain some bonus Simoleons every few days to live out their twilight years without needing to work themselves into an early grave.

I love how lounge chairs were added to base game, I just wish you could do things while laying on them, like reading books, using phone, watching tv.
I wanted to use cat/dog hangout lot trait for having pets come around and hang out with my sims from time to time, but it turned out all of them are sick, they can get into the house and they make huge mess. I don't really get the point of this trait.
Lastly, I wish babies that are crying would wake up at least the people that are sleeping in the same room.

We love feedback, we crave it ... And with that thought in mind we wanted to start a dedicated thread, so you can share specific items you hope to see in game.
Have a specific haircut you love and want to see it in game? A make-up style you use daily and want to replicate in The Sims 4? Missing a skin tone that is just right for you?
Let us know the styles/items you want to see in-game! Pictures are loved and much appreciated.

BETTER BEDS! I suggest that the Dev team fix beds so that each bed starts off at the same comfort/energy levels-low-and you need to upgrade it several times or have a 'mega-upgrade' that will give the bed the best settings all at once. This would be in the form of 'upgrade' which many electronics and other items in the game have. This would add more realism because every so often people do need to get new mattresses. This also fixes the issue people run into when creating bedrooms. They will probably choose the better functioning bed over the bed-der looking bed even if it doesn't match the surrounding furniture. Or vice versa, someone may sacrifice the quality of the Sims sleep just to have a nice duvet cover. I have no knowledge of how this would be created but you might not even need a new animation! Maybe just a poof of dust to show that it's changed like in build mode. I would really like to see this made because it adds realism and people can choose what bed they want without sacrificing quality! I've made this post 3 times before- once in 2015, 2016 and 2018-please share!

Is it possible that you be able to watch and learn from Will Wright's Masterclass that is now up - in teaching Game Design & Theory - as he truly knows how to create something that the players can dive into to make it their own?
Despite the graphics, Sims 1 is still one of the best games around - gameplay wise - as is Sims 2. Sims 3 for the open worlds - but, seriously - like someone above mentioned - we have been told to get with the times - nobody plays games like that anymore...
The only things going for these new games is the marketing and the fact that the Sims have been around for so long AND luckily the older versions are available to play.
It would be great if you would approach The Sims from the player's point of view for real - every pack & every activity is available in every type of neighborhood - not just piecemeal - just like the older versions - complete versions - woven throughout each area - to be able to make it a fully immersible game - especially for these prices.
It's ridiculous that you charge for something what has only a quarter of what the older games offer in terms of full gameplay.
We get it - marketing budgets, higher ups, shareholders, etc. - excuses - all of it - (SimCity 2013 is proof of how you guys wouldn't listen to the fans that helped keep these games going) - because how come they were able to create a fully immersive game way back when with a totally different smaller budget and it is the only reason Sims 4 is still around?
So, do you really want to know what we want or is this more of the same?
