    Scifi/Into the Future
    I wanted to choose mythical/fantasy AND sci-fi, but just stuck with sci-fi since aliens are my favorite occult life state. But really, the non-realism players have been held out on for a really really long time. Just aliens and vampires, and aliens are sort of a shame (I wish they worked similarly to vampires), and ghosts and the grim reaper aren't even as good a they used to be. However, I will be unsurprised if the occults take way longer or never arrive. Sims 4 seems heavily geared toward realism, as well as less...quirkiness.

    I'm pretty nonplussed by University. I didn't play it in 3 so maybe it was better, but I remember it being a long, boring, drawn out nightmare in 2. I don't mean to offend anyone, I know it's popular, I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I was missing something. I feel the same way about beach expansions, because I dont want to just sit and fast forward while my sims swim or suntan. (Again, I don't want to start anything, it's just playing style)

    But I think a whole new expansion idea would be the best option. How long are we going to rehash the same things? If we've had the same expansions for 2-3 installments of the game, shouldn't it be included in the base game at some point?? Things like seasons and pets are well liked by many players, and easy not to use if you don't want to. And then expansions could do just that -- expand on the existing game in ways we haven't seen before. Anyway that was a long tangent but those are just some of my thoughts.

    Edit: I had another thought. I'd really love a pack that added more hobbies. Often I feel like my elders have nothing to do because they've already mastered so much in their lives, it'd be nice to get something that was just a compilation of a bunch of different skills and hobbies. I think there was something like this in previous games, like free time or something? (and now I'm a hypocrite considering what I said above, but I wouldn't have to be if the game just included some of this stuff already...)

    I suspect we will get both a Farming and a University EP next year. I'm guessing even though University has been requested a lot, they started asking specific questions about Farming in early 2018, so that may come first. That also fits in better with releases for the seasons, at least in the US - late spring/early summer Farming, Fall for University. But I strongly suspect we WILL see University next year, just not first.

    Farming will probably be a GP UNLESS they can think of and add an amazing feature to make it worth EP price.

    That could easily be done.

    First, you need a good world with big lots (if, that's even possible at this point) for crops and livestock.

    Bring back features from past games and give them better gameplay. The butter churner (milk the cows and make butter) and spinning wheel (shear the sheep and/or llamas to make wool) from TS1. A County Fair could add baking contests and animal judging contests. This could be an opportunity to add more snacks like cotton candy (without a mod). A County Fair could also include some carnival rides.

    A Farmers' Market would give us the chance to sell crops or livestock. Even things like quilts and goods from a canning station.

    This could be the chance to include actual "off the grid" items. I'd love to see a well to draw water from (if nothing more than to fill troughs for the animals).

    I need University for my teenage sims. That’s probably my most wanted pack right now. It’s obviously in high demand so I hope they make one for the Sims 4. They had it for Sims 2 and 3 so!
  • Iguess66Iguess66 Posts: 105 Member
    University for sure. I'm ready for my teen sims to get some higher education.

    Island Paradise
    I like both the island and the magic :) hard to choose, can we have some of both of those ?? :D:D

  • AjaGioAjaGio Posts: 241 Member
    Island Paradise
    Clearly, we need a magical university. (With optional muggle degrees.) Then everyone's happy!
    This would be MOST AWESOME!!! :D:D:D

    I want Generations with preteens or Highschool next
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"
  • EricasFreePlayEricasFreePlay Posts: 533 Member
    I picked University for the next EP, but I would also like a Mythical/Fantasy pack (including Magic) or Into The Future/Sci Fi pack. Any of those 3 would work for me.
  • Aeroprincess87Aeroprincess87 Posts: 6,262 Member
    I just want witches in my game. Don't care if it's a GP or EP. I just want them well done and fleshed out like vampires are.
  • lenorcalenorca Posts: 22 Member
    I'd love to play a famous teen growing up and going into university :smile: Combined with clubs I think it would work really well, all the study groups i.e. Especially if you could choose the sims major to be acting or literature that would impact the career when graduating :smile:

    Close decison, but as much as I love university, I want witches more. And fairies and werewolves and mermaids. But mostly witches.
  • fullspiralfullspiral Posts: 14,517 Member
    I would love a farming pack with off the grid features.

    I still want a casino pack and a cruise vacation.

    Danger Will Robinson, Danger! Or just a little more difficulty.

    Alien (or Zombie) Invasions, World Domination, Plague, Famine, Wicked Witches, Godzilla, Shark Attacks, Catastrophic Weather (tornadoes, hurricanes, meteor showers etc.), Burglars, Real Emergency Services (Police, fire), Hospital (for something other than pregnancy), Post-Apocalyptic worlds, Historical Worlds (no electricity or indoor plumbing).

    More jobs/careers; Auto mechanic, Architect, Airplane Pilot, Construction Worker, Dancer, EMT, Flight Attendant, Gambler, Gas Station Attendant, Insurance Sales, Middle Management (never surpasses the middle), Nurse (not doctor), Shop Keeper (retail is laaame), Stock Broker, Teacher... sometimes you don't reach the pinnacle of success and either choose to have a regular job or get stuck somewhere in the middle.

    University, Vocational School, Apprenticeship, or jump right into the labor market.

    Or maybe cars, or something...

    But but I wants them all! I know we've had university in 2 and 3, but with the trend of the sims 4 building upon previous ideas and making them better for the sims 4 I think they could do it again with university. As part of the expansion I would like them to expand on sim education as a whole. I'd like to see options to put our toddlers in nursery that would help give them a head start that could affect their school and uni education down the line. Also bring back the ability to put children and teens in private school (I loved the impress the principle event from sims 2) and also boarding school as options. I also think it would be a nice option to make nursery and school like get to work where you have the option to join them there or not.

    I strongly feel as if university will be the next EP. As for others I think mythical/Fantasy would come in a GP, Island paradise could be a GP, and I don’t know about sci-fi/into the future.

    Island Paradise
    I would love a Beach/Ocean type pack with snorkeling, surfboarding, windsurfing, beach activities such as beach volleyball and sunbeds/sun tanning, kayaking, etc. I love to do these in real life and I would love them in the Sims! Think about it, it would be a very cool idea and I would pay 40$ for at least 3-4 of the things i've mentioned.
  • Writin_RegWritin_Reg Posts: 28,907 Member
    I clicked Uni, as careers without Uni degree really freaks me out - BUT also would not say no to any of those on your list as eps - as long as they have more than 6 residential lots - that is if they are eps. I am fine with gps having fewer lots - but not an ep.

    Even though I would die for anything related to Magic or Fantasy (I've always wanted dragons in my game), I think we need some realism to the game at the moment, so a University EP would be the most appropriate choice for me. It will give the young Sims something to aspire to and work hard for. Plus, different degrees and potential career paths could set the ground for lovely stories.

    Scifi/Into the Future
    I voted for this option because it is the one that has the least chance of being re-created in TS4, but I wanted all the others too.

    Yes, indeed! The producers of The SIms 4 forget that one of the great sub-communities of The Sims are lovers of supernatural and science fiction. I want all the occults back in the game, and to be able to visit the past and the future!

    Island and then University.

    I need The Supernatural. All of them. When witches arrive along with were[
    wolves, I'll finally be able to create my Supernatural Legacy family from TS3 into the TS4 and it's been about five years. A SUPERNATURAL EXPLOSION IS LONG OVERDUE
