    You see why cant talk about religion and The Sims 4 never will bring religions. It can be offensive for several groups than was opressed due religion rules

    We can talk about it and have for pages. This thread and others. We are talking about tools that allow us to create whatever we want that is similar to irl religion/spirituality or made up ones, not a cut & dry exact replica of real religions. I understand some people have been oppressed from religions, but also some religious have also been oppressed by nonreligious. It goes both ways, but this thread is not the topic to talk about the merits or lack thereof of real life religion, this is talking about tools and customization in a Sims game. But youre free to create a topic about that in off-topic. You can create whatever sims you want in the game, none of them are being oppressed by eachother. There is no oppression in the Sims.

    I don't see any problem with Maxis implementing a made up religion purely for the Sims, I'd like something similar to the Tribunal Temple religion from Morrowind - where you have three different entities (daedra) you can worship in return for different bonuses and boons. You could have the churches feud with one another like arranging pranks, toilet papering, etc. Conversely have sims host benefits and sell items for church-sponsored charities and of course have school & work days off for church-related holidays.

    I was watching a sims medieval lets play and I seen your sims are agnostic from the beginning. But certain actions will build their faith until it reaches a status where they believe in The Watcher. I think this would be cool to see. And being able to access that in CAS from the beginning.

    From the wiki:
     Sims (except for priests) start out as Agnostics, neither believing in or disbelieving in the Watcher.

    Priests can attempt to convert others to their faith, either by directly discussing it with individuals or giving sermons, which has a small chance of spontaneously converting Sims who listen to them. In addition, when being controlled, a hero can speak with a priest and ask to join their church, automatically converting the hero to the priest's religion.

    Priests cannot attempt to convert rival priests away from their faith, nor do they get the option of joining the other priest's church.

    Heroes who have a faith can approach the priest of their church to renounce their faith, turning them back into Agnostics. This doesn't harm their relationship with the priest, give either Sim a negative buff, or even remove buffs restricted to members of the faith they're renouncing.

    I think the Sims actually have their religions.
    There's the Llama idol, the food offering of
    Grilled Cheese Sandwiches,
    the Samaritan drinking from sinks,
    the Spa meditation praying,
    the giving to poor Sims and
    the worshipping dances.

    We should be able to limit certain holidays to certain households or clubs, to atleast give the allusion.
