Feature Updates for DLCs.

JasonRMJJasonRMJ Posts: 711 Member
Why is it that the Base Game can have it's own feature update but not for Expansion Packs, Game Packs and Stuff Packs???
The DLCs are horrendously watered down, it's like if you guys had more ideas for the DLCs you can just put it as a feature update for the DLCs too. You guys don't have to go to a weird schedule that has to fit it, on a theme or something.

Can you guys the Developers and EA, at least put some effort for the DLCs? please. They need to be refreshed and get a new look, Luxury Stuff Pack needs a total makeover and add some new content for it too. It's tiring to see the fact that they're in a stagnant position, they need to be streamlined, like what the Base Game has in terms of monthly updates.

Thanks for listening

    Maybe if you request it be moved to the game feedback forum? This is feedback for the forum.

    I'd love to see existing DLC's updated, but it seems the team would rather make us pay for feature updates in the form of entirely new packs if their little mosino pack is anything to go by.

    I'd love for future patches to (in addition to fixing bugs) upgrade existing features.

    I think the problem largely boils down to...

    "This month, we're adding x y z to EP so and so much FOR FREE!!!!"

    "What? No base game update? What about those who don't own this pack? Why aren't we getting anything?"
    "Em, they gave photography away for free to everyone, why not this?"
    "That's what you call free? Trying to trick us into buying an EP just so we can enjoy some free content too??"
    "I think they should be focusing on fixing their game first before adding more plum to it, especially if it's not even going to be for everyone!"

    I apologise in advance.

    No money in updating what we already paid for. EA wants money, and they would rather make us pay for something, then release it for free a few years later, and then make us pay for an upgrade which will probably also be released for free in a bit. I’d like them to just do it right the first go around, so their time and energy can be spent making new things. However they’ve seen that players will pay for half an idea now and the rest later on.

    I believed that if we voiced our concerns like what the EA YouTube game changers did, we can make them do it!

    Dear God, Moschino Stuff Pack CAS asset are so little, It's sad. Can you guys add more please? in the near future? probably the fashion designer wants to add in more CAS items, which he should've been given to as the art director for that SP.

    I agree. They forget to include matching island counters then take their time adding them in an update. There’s more lacking than that. Maybe if they enhanced DLC features, more people who skipped the pack before would decide to buy it now. I feel as though they react to our feedback by putting those ideas into another new pack to buy, they’ll never admit we should have gotten camera poses to begin with. And that’s if they even show up with what we’re asking for, instead of just more stuff nobody cares about.

    But EA would still give out FREE updates for the Base Game, why not the DLCs? which we paid for.

    This.

    Also, Grant has already said that he was interested in releasing more DLC for DLC on Twitter, like they did with MFPS. When talking about GTW he said they could add more active careers via paid DLC. Updates wouldn't be free.

    If there’s a TS5 I hope that man has nothing to do with it. He’s so delusional I can’t imagine how he functions outside of work.

    I just think his skills and design ideas are best suited for a genre other than life simulation.

    I believe we can but as long as everybody is not on board or just accept paying more for less even if the little they do offer is not even worth the price, EA/Maxis will keep on doing what they doing. I am glad I am not dependent on the Sims as the only game I play and rather spend my money on games that are worthwhile and also I no longer pay the asking price.

    Didn't they learn anything from MFPS, that we don't appreciate that sort of extortion? Yes, I used the e-word, and I've read some 3rd party reviewers that have used it as well.

    As for GTW, how about they fix the ones we already have? Something wrong with that boy. Seems that all he cares about is $.

    Congress, perhaps. He'd fit right in with those greedy, scheming scoundrels.

    As long as he stays away from EA's marketing team! With them, he won't even get elected to be mayor of his own hometown. :lol:

    I wouldn't trust them to design my campaign posters, with the way they handled the redesign of The Sims 4 and its clashing color scheme.
