    Looks really different for Sims! Love love love the world already and the new CAS.

    Guys. I am so excited for this!

    It looks like a similar concept to Jungle Adventures, which is what I was hoping for. We'll be able to explore and uncover the mystery of the town. did you see the weird weather effects at the end of the trailer? Amazing. <3

    Looks creepy and fun!

    Well I'm excited :) No pack is going to be /everyone's/ thing but so far it looks like it could be fun for a lot of players <3

    Well I am more of a sandbox player but this has me intrigued.

    My questions are simple....1. does this effect all neighborhoods and gameplay or just the new neighborhood?...2. Can you live there?...3. Can you be in the Military career?...4. Is whatever it is effecting them curable?

    I was SUPER anti-Jungle Adventures until I actually played it. I love it now.
    I am actually really interested in this!

    If this is a one-time mystery, it doesn't sound like it would have a high replayability value. Unless it's something like the temple in JA, and things in the mystery randomize and reset each time.

    It is quite interesting I must say but I agree, I wonder how will it fit in with the rest of the packs or is this like CL which is an EP and some of it's features are locked into one area. However, I will wait and see where it goes, it is an interesting concept but like you I am wondering about replayability and if it is low some will not buy it and see it as an play once and never go there again or just look at it as an waste of money. If anything I will not pay full price for it and just wait.

    @Twinsmama The blog comic basically confirms that the military career will be part of this pack.

    As long as we can live in and build in the town I'll get it BUT if it is destination based I'll likely pass. I have zero interest in buying anymore packs that only have destination worlds.

    This actually looks really cool and I'll probably buy it.

    I love games like this.

    Not so sure about the sims 4. Sims 4 sims are too darn happy, and lets be honest they always have a creepy smile.

    I fear this would be a one time thing like jungle Adventures and after that you wouldn’t touch again.

    I am interested in what looks like martial arts coming back. But I was super hyped for jungle adventures and that fell flat for me. Puzzles and danger we were promised turned out to be guess and click and negative moodlets.

    Not sold yet.

    I'm excited for the story aspect, the clothes and being able to put pictures on tables and such. AND there were 3 people in that picture! So we might be able to take pictures with more than two people...I get excited about weird things

    My theory, the military tried to somehow genetically modify the cow plant and things went bad...and they're stopping people from coming close to the truth

    I'm definitely looking forward to this. I love solving mysteries :) and that new world looks awesome!
  • liliaethliliaeth Posts: 1,042 Member
    seems like the military career is a definite then?

    This looks like those dumb storytelling spin-offs from TS2, with zero replay value. I know a certain someone said they prioritize being able to tell their stories than the players being able to tell their own, but this is getting a little ridiculous now. And, minor nitpick, why would they change Strangetown's name?
  • mustenimusteni Posts: 3,703 Member
    I'm super curious and they definitely got my attention. I need to know what's in it so maybe I can justify a release day purchase :joy:

    Thank you. It just dawned on me that the patch for it will be tomorrow? Or I wonder if the patch we had a couple of weeks ago took care of it.

    Crazy how this is the latest pack when I've been playing in Strangetown in TS2 recently. Makes me wanna think they'll add something like zombies, but I doubt it.
  • MasonGamerMasonGamer Posts: 8,524 Member
    Hmm, Thank you, next.
