edited March 4 in The Sims 4 Ideas Corner
A lot of you, including myself, would like a beach with plum stuff included. My question is, "Do you want a beach vacation like in S2 that you visit or a beach world in which to live like in S3 (Island Paradise)?" Explain WHY in the comment section. Thanks.

    I just want a beach with swimmable oceans.

    I want a more "relaxing" vacation world. :)
    A world where my Sims can go to for relaxation and honeymoon! Only the most adventurous Sims go to Selvadorada or Granite Falls for honeymoon

    I want both, but I think a Beach World would be better.

    I need my sims to enjoy a beach all year round. However i actually want to have both types. :smiley:

    I'm good either way. I wouldn't mind either a place to live or to visit, because tbh, I can make a beach themed home from the build/buy mode stuff either way, lol. There would probably be more to do in a vacation spot (just gameplay wise) than just a new world theme itself, but yeah. I just want the beach theme, whatever comes with it is a bonus.
    Live, laugh and love. Life's too short not to.

    I know I'm the unpopular opinion here, but I think they should do other things (such as seasons) before adding a Beach vacation. That said, if they decided to add a beach vacation pack, I would prefer for it to just be a vacation spot.

    I’d like a gp beach pack I could live in. I’m greedy. Lol

    I agree with you on Seasons. Long overdue.

    I honestly would love both options but if we only get one then I would rather it be a place my sims can live at.

    what is "plum stuff"?
    i'd rather have a beach world to live in permanently. maybe it's an unpopular opinion, but i don't like these vacation worlds that only allow temporary residence, they are useless to me. i'd like them more if they allowed you to change the lot types to permanent residence.

    It's a frustration to have certain world types limited when we can't create our own worlds. If I wanted to play a game in the woods or the jungle, about Sims who live there all the time, it wouldn't be possible.

    If they aren't going to give us a world builder, worlds should be open and liveable permanently.

    If we do get swimmable oceans, I'd be fine with either, but since oceans will most likely only be swimmable in that one place, I'd rather it be a vacation place focused on that. Plus, I tend to like GPs better than EPs, and I really want this to be focused and full of cool things like toddlers and up building sandcastles, beach volleyball, swimming, snorkeling, new fish for the collection and such. A resort type of world would be great for families or, as has been stated above, couples on their honeymoon.

    Either, but would prefer a beach world to live in. I'll take a vacation GP otherwise, and swimmable oceans are a must have.

    I want a beach vacation because I want a place for sims to take a relaxing vacation or honeymoon. I don’t think I’d use a beach world (not vacation world) much.

    I, to be honest, don't really mind either way - I'd say however that I would probably be happier with a holiday destination as Brindleton Bay, and to some extent, Windenberg, have a beach already

    I want both: I want a beach world where some Sims can vacation and other Sims can live.

    Either here.
    I'd actually like both though. A tropical vacation themed one.. maybe that would get mermaids? Then maybe one of the EP's to come set in a world with a beach in some part of it .. kind of like Windenburg in the island section but not with cliffs. It would go great with something that had celebrities in it for instance.. hint, hint.

    Hard choice but since we cant create worlds of our own I would prefer a beach world so my Sims could actually live on it and not just enjoy it when I decide to vacation.

    If it were up to me, there would be no distinction between vacation worlds and normal ones. Even Granite Falls would have a neighbourhood for sims to live in permanently, if they wanted.

    I want a world with lot of beaches like Brindleton Bay but where we can actually swim? I'm all about new worlds and new spaces to build honestly but I would like my sims to be able to live in those houses because I think two vacation packs it's already enough vacation packs :D they are not that usable

    This would be so much fun if that would happen. I would love to see the island paradise activities in Ts4 since Ip was a mess...

    I'd actually want both or some version of both. There are a lot of ways that you can do a beach and many inspiring beaches around the world.

    I know that we currently have some unswimmable beaches which I'll be ok with when Seasons arrives because I will say that those are cooler locations and that they might have rough/unsafe water. I want to see beaches for swimming though.

    I'd be willing to see tropical, Southern California or Baja and Mediterranean style beach worlds. It'd be ok if some were livable and if some were vacations or if they did a cruise theme or isolated island resort as a vacation option.
