The Sims 4 My First Pet Stuff - A Stuff Pack filled with Fur

    and in my case with 3, watch ads and get free points. I have 8gb of store content with free points.

    Not to get too off topic, but the sims 3 store is still allowing you to do that? For some reason, I don't see the Ads anymore and thus have to actually buy points to get more stuff from the store. Maybe because I use chrome? I noticed I can only download things through Explorer

    No sadly, it’s been months since we have had this.

    This is a blatant cash grab. EA is ruining what used to be my favorite game franchise. Making a stuff pack with things that should have been in the expansion is despicable. I really don’t think I will buy it. Not only that, but I will no longer recommend this game or new games from EA to anyone.

    I've had the opposite experience with TS4 - it is so unplayable (with bugs and "features working as intended" that destroy Sim relationships and family trees) that it's the first game I've ever had to mod to get it to work.

    Back on topic...

    @Moon_Willow - Your posts reinforce my feelings about how poorly thought-through the representation of child responsiblity in dealing with small pets is in this pack. An Inspired moodlet from releasing a small, tame animal into the wild? Are you kidding me? Releasing domestic animals into the wild is certainly more cruel than giving your dog the option of sleeping in a doghouse if it wants to... :unamused: Say what you will about which team is responsible for what, but as the head of the Stuff Pack team, I do hold @SimGuruGraham accountable for irresponsible decisions about modelling small pet care for children in this pack.

    Aww man. I thought maybe there was still hope. I wonder why they stopped doing it...

    I’ve been toying with the idea for the past week but I think I’m going to buy it today. Can’t say I’m excited about it but I like new things

    Not to be rude as that is not my intention, but why purchase if you are not excited? Video games should bring enjoyment.

    When I open the game again I wanted to have something new in it.

    I have now opened the game and I’m a little underwhelmed to be honest

    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    It's his response on this Tweet. I'm glad he's taking a look at that!:
    Not so obsessed anymore with building in TS4!

    So hopefully that they'll add this for the people who have this SP.

    I would love to know how the sales are going. If they noticed a lot less sales or not really.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the sales are absolute plum (or should I say plum-meting?). Especially considering how successful and well-received JA was.

    So many expansions and stuff packs in Sims 4. It's turned into such a money grab. I have all the games and almost all the expansions since the original Sims, but I'm over it now. Barely get anything for your money. Before kids were just included, now I have to get a parenthood and toddler pack too. Animals were an expansion that included all the pets your sims could desire...now we gets only cats and dogs...unless we shell out more money. Over it.

    I wanted to love this pack. I wanted to say it would be totally worth the money spent (because there are a few things in it I really do want) but it just comes across as terribly lazy and that makes it so I just can't justify buying it. SPs building on EPs is fine to me if I felt that real effort was put into them. This one just seems like a few good ideas propped up with a bunch of lazy recolors so they could release it as fast as possible.

    As compared to what??? SIms 3 actually had MORE SPs and expansions by this time. AND it had the store.

    The Sims 3 only had 9 SPs in total. We're on our 14th now on The Sims 4. I would have much preferred if we've gotten 2 expansions a year again (thus doubling the amount that we have now) and half the SPs.
    The new thang that I do now is 100 baby challenge in The Sims 3 (it's my first time!)!

    They're seriously selling recolored meshes as new content??

    Can we just go back to the days of Sims 2 when high quality non half-baked content was the rule and not the exception?

    Yikes, I didn't realise they got an inspired moodlet, that's even worse. It would be good if they had the option of surrendering the animal to a rescue organisation and that was the only option available to sims who had the responsible trait.

    Which would have been way more expensive and not given players more choices with smaller SP's and GPs, which was kinda the whole point.

    GP and SP model is actually pricier. A GP is aproximately 1/3rd of an expansion (especially true if you look at holiday destinations), however it costs 18£ versus 34£ for an ep. So by buying 3GPs you're actually paying about 40% more than the same amount of content in one EP.

    That being said, I would not mind if all we got was strong GPs 4 times a year or more. EPs for TS4 were majorly dissappointing to me and SPs feel like The Sims 3 store sets if not less. However we're receiving 1 EP and 2 GPs a year making it fall shorter than the old model 2 EPs. Not to mention GPs will not necessarily carry the same theme (even with Eldorada, we're still 1 GP short from collecting 3 vacation destinations) and expansions feel greatly watered down.

    However, that's a bit off topic. In reality you're paying more for The Sims 4 than you were for previous installments (not counting buying the whole of The Sims 3 store with real money) and your content is more spread out at best, all over the place with unfinished themes at worst (who wants to bet will we get a full collection of supernaturals when they can only pretty much come in GPs now and there's so many other themes a GP could explore?).

    I just can't believe they went ahead with releasing the SP at all. I thought for sure they would stop the marketing, readjust, and release a more thought-out pack. But no. They didn't take any sort of constructive criticism whatsoever. It's borderline insulting. People on this forum had wonderful ideas to rectify the situation that would've worked for both producer and consumer.

    I have to agree with @mirta000 to be honest the game packs so far haven' been bad, but I feel like though it was good, Parenthood was a bit of a rip off – maybe it should've been an SP? (Oops going off-topic)

    Not trying to throw any shade here, btw.
    But I guess the price adjustments suck. To be honest, it wasn't fair as some of us (including myself, heck, I was paying 10$ CAD, which is like 7-8$ USD) so I guess now that I look back on it, I feel sort of happy that I didn't pay that much in the end as others because I feel like some things were a bit of a rip-off.

    At least Origin has a decent amount of sales.

    A global multibillion dollar company isnt going to change their marketing over a small vocal group. You do realize that Sims has millions of fans, and we basically have a couple dozen folks who are just being vocal about it.A(Seriously, look on reddit or here, its essentially the same small group of people) Its peanuts. My wife? She saw a new SP came out today, instabuy. She doesnt read the forums, she doesnt care about the drama. She doesnt even talk to other people about the sims, she just plays the game. $10 to her (Well its my money but) means nothing. its like going to the store for some snacks.
