I was watching the English Simmer's youtube video on what she wanted in 2019, and it really got me thinking, and I had some good ideas.
Some of them are the same as before, but I had some new ones. She inspired me, so I'll post my comments, my new ideas, and list the things I want, and want back, already.
- I miss the shower woohoo. No one accidentally drowned after being tired from woohoo in the shower.
- Omg yes, I'm just gonna start listing things I agree with: Reward Store- I shouldn't have to add a bunch of mods for it to become fun, Newcrest 2- yes the forums are full of this, also Del Sol literally have like 3 spaces. What the heck? Stairs- I want elevators already. More stairs too. Color Swatches- I didn't know we could do that, I want to try this now. Emotions Turn Ons Etc- Yes. Negative Traits- yeah. Also I have feelings about turning Insane into Erratic. Being erratic isn't being insane. I know they're trying not to trigger people, but I'm feeling a bit triggered by that. Aspirations- yes, I have to mod so many aspirations because they are boring. I've got Cultural traits and aspiration mods because of this. Hobbies- YES! I get so bored. My main things are multipurpose/functional buildings. Extreme supes (I wrote a lot about it in the forums). Add immortality that isn't dependent on vampirism. Clubs being something more. Just so much stuff.
- I like the idea of cars too, like my first driving pack. Have teen drivers get their learning permits. Have young adults who were too afraid to learn to drive as kids, *ahem*, who are trying to learn. Have public transportation as an option. I'm not saying that the loading screen is bad. But more options would make it fun. Like a road trip option. You plan a vacation, but decided to drive instead of fly. So for two days, heading to Granite Falls in the car, you get so many interactions. See the World's biggest Plumbob. Eat bad fried seafood at a stand. Listen to music your parents love, but you hate. And when you finally make it to the Falls, you're almost vacationed out, but not quite. I want sullen teenagers who wanted to go to Disney. Grandparents who want to wake up at 5 am and go fishing on the lake. Not just beside it. Parents who want to reconnect and rekindle under the stars. Kids who want to try to find Bigfoot, but have a 7pm curfew. Give us options!
My previous posts:
Basically what I'm saying is, each of these new packs has promised so much. But it's like they give us a thimble of water instead of the whole gallon. I'm thirsty for new experiences. I want to be able to get the most out of my sims.
No, I don't want to HAVE to be aware of every single thing that they do, and be that involved, so I can't have multiple sims. But I'd like there to be more to their lives.
I shouldn't have to click my kids to make them do homework, and make sure they put it back in their inventory. I shouldn't have to force fun on them when they have autonomy. Can they have something to do? They don't even turn on kids network themselves. They're like these emotionally stunted individuals until they're adults. Young adults. Then suddenly they want to do everything, and can't find time to sit and eat a meal. Can we have some balance?
Can they go to the bathroom on their own if they have to pee? Grab leftovers without me telling them to, when I literally just made one sim make 5 meals and put them in the fridge? If you suck at homework, ask your parent for help. Sure you'll go break a dollhouse randomly, but you can't turn on a movie if you're bored?
There's just so much.
