Does anyone else want robots?

«13
Robots were always my favourite lifestate because they were more scientific than fantasy, but I definitely prefer the Servo/Simbot version than the Plumbot. I want my Sim to be able to make them. Does anyone else want them back?

    Honestly I would love controlling a robot. Let's get a future pack (and maybe fix aliens?).

    I wouldn’t mind a Servo but I wouldn’t want anything other than that, like I don’t want a new robot life state

    I would like the robots to be like sims 3, they were the best thing ever. The future pack of sims 3 was so cool and great I love all of it.

    A robot servant would be awesome, they could range from looking like the classic Servo to something crazy like the terminator, I mean who doesn't want the terminator washing their dishes?

    It would also be cool if you could choose to make them androids, they still function like robots (stuff like being weak to water and needing to charge) but they just look like regular sims abit with added customization (Metal limbs, obvious fake skin with wires, new eye colors, etc)

    Omg about the skeleton maid I remember that what game we had one? I remember playing with it I don't remember what game it was though.

    I would prefer Plumbots, honestly. They had way more customization.
  • I dont want robots at all.

    Heck yea, robots would be cool. The TS3 plumbots were awesome.

    Androids too! Robots looking kind of like regular sims would be a neat addition, especially since I've seen so many people trying to mod or cheat towards that already in earlier games.

    I miss robots from the sims 3 they were a lot of fun, I really love scifi type stuff in general though.

    I got a bot family (sims who are wearing robot suits) I would love to make them as real plumbobs.

    I definitely want robots. I didn't play 3 so other than being happy the did a deeper dive into them I'm not sure how they were done.
    I want to be able to make them. I want them to be able to become sentient .. for that to be possible. I'd even like romance options. I'm hoping they can either stay robots or be transformed into a synthetic human .. or more.
    I want all my Pinocchio and Pygmalion dreams to come true in this game. So many stories to tell with this.

    I want robots but I want them like the ones in the movie Robots. I want them made from stuff you have to collect from a junkyard or around the house. I want to be able to upgrade them and decorate them. ROBOTICS should be a skill. I'd love to be able to build a family of bots that could live with my family or on their own. And a world like that bot world with all the cool things made from other things.

    When S4 was announced, I wanted to create a story line about a robot that lived through and worked for, every generation of one family. But we still don't have robots.

    I don't want robots to look like humans. We already have sims. How could you tell the difference between a sim and a simbot? I want them klanky and fun with something breaking or falling off once and a while. If you want robotic sims, go to Strangerville and get infected.

    Maybe, I'm not sure. I have modded/cheated androids in my game already, but I think I could warm up for non-humanoid shaped robots, something like Wall-E or T3-M4.

    Modern robots/androids could control the household electronics wirelessly (no animation required), but running in wireless mode would also pose the risk of getting hacked by sims with a high programming and mischief skill.

    All types, from Simbots to Star Wars droids.

    Heck yeah! Personally, I like the idea of androids being able to be both visually and functionally upgraded, from Asimo-looking machines with limited emotional and cognitive capabilities and bound by Asimov's famous Three Laws; all the way up to advanced androids that are visually, mentally, and emotionally indistinguishable (or nearly so) from human. That would bring me incredible joy.

    You know what. I was never much interested in robots until I saw the this pic.

    I am not interested in robots in metal or however "natural" they can look. But if I can get them looking like they are made out of wood, then they would work very well with this medieval occult world I am trying to build for myself. It can have all kinds of snazzy stuff, I just would like to chose what materials the robot-sim is made of. I find myself warming to the thought of robots just because these look so cute. However, wooden ones would be great for me.

    I would love to see a return of either the Servos from S2 or the Plumbots from S3. I enjoyed both.

    I've been asking for a Futuristic pack forever. I imagined something robotic (like in the movie, Interstellar) would be a part of it.

    She was in 1 and 3. I actually wouldn't mind her back now that we have more occults.

    I would like robots back though! Like TS3 but not the future pack style, I'd like them to be more like Ambitions. I enjoyed collecting scraps and finding gems to create the bot. Felt kinda Frankenstein like.

    Yes, bring back customizable plumbots!

    That mention of wooden robots made me immediately think of Woodman from the Mega Man games (The latest cartoon adaptation is pretty good, BTW. Though, it takes a good 16 episodes to finally find its feet.). Wood should definitely be an option for our robots, along with metal and plastic. Heck, inflatable robots like the one from Big Hero 6 would also be cool, now that I think of it...

    Plumbots were my favorite thing from S3 ever. Would love to see them return
