«1
we haven't gotten any new skills this year so I'm a little worried that they may never add anymore
what do you guys think ?
the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    Hmm, well, I think sims 4 is getting near end but I could be wrong, I'm not sure what was EA will planning after ROM.

    it does kind of seem that why even though they say its going to be going for years to come it has all the marks of something that's ending @Humility925

    Dragging out the death throes to torture us. Agree that it does look like something at the end of its teather; so empty, lifeless, superficial... as though their heart just isn't in it. Maybe the flawed engine and initial premis are catching up with them.

    Good question. What was the last skill?

    Well we also get hidden skills that isn't going to show up in the panel to show it's progression. Much like the skating skill from Seasons.

    Is there a way we can view the hidden skills?

    Most likely with MC commands? I believe it can be seen if you look at a sims info panel with MC Command if they have any.

    You go into the cheats for it you can definitely see a list of skills that aren't hidden. Much like chopstick skill, spicy foods, rock climbing, work ethic, pet poop cleanup (lol IDK it's the oddest hidden skill ever)

    Haven't checked to see what hidden skills there has been lately with packs.

    I hadn't even noticed this. :o That's really weird, but I don't think it implies that they won't add anymore new skills.

    I don’t really think the last few packs have really had the need for a new skill. Strangerville was more of a mystery, Island Living reworked swimming with the fitness skill, Moschino added a tripod to photography and Realm of Magic has a rank system. Adding skills wouldn’t have really worked as well.

    My guess is that university will be next and will come with a teaching skill and maybe a few others. (I'm not really interested in this theme pack but not NOT interested either, I just predict that that will happen haha)

    It is speculative and quite telling that The Sims Studio didn’t implement any new skills.

    I honestly was expecting Alchemy as a brand new skill instead of a “spell style”.. I am disappointed about that.

    I really hope we get more skills! I was so disappointed that alchemy wasn't. I would love a sewing/embroidery skill.

    Nahh IL should've included a diving skill, a new Sulanian culture skill, and perhaps some other skill tied to gameplay that wasn't included :sweat_smile:

    Sorry I forgot: and an actual way for mermaids to level up. Doesn't even need to be as good as witches and vampires, just something.

    I don't need many more skills, really. So I have not missed more additions. The only kind of skill I've missed is when sims grow up and I think they will suit some sort of office career, I wish there was more than Logic (+ Charisma) to prepare them. I miss som,e kind of Economics skill, which could both relay towards business/politics and household/shopping. It feels weird that the CEO of my local bank will get the job thanks to playing chess, lol. Also miss TS2's cleaning skill, but it's a minor thing and perhaps it's already in the game as a hidden skill.

    I actually like that they are overhauling the current skills rather than than creating new ones.

    At this point, Charisma skill is prhbably the most useless one and needed an overhaul

    I do wish for more skills but at the same time it’s nice to have the skills in game built upon with packs or overhauled with patches. I don’t know if they are done with them just probably haven’t seen need to add any new ones with recent packs. Strangerville was a story pack, island living maybe could have had a diving skill but diving is a rabbit hole which would make the skill lame plus they did overhaul on fishing and updated swimming, Moschino made photography a fun skill for me, and ROM gain is through magic spellcaster ranks instead of a new skill. So maybe next pack will have a new one? I think it just has to make enough sense as a new skill for them to add it we haven’t had anything recently that has really.

    @Akl500P They didn't update swimming, there is no swimming skill in this game. They just added new swimming styles to the fitness skill levels.

    @Karon that’s what I meant by updating swimming, sorry I should have been more clear there.

    Well, after Get Famous expansion pack I haven't seen new skills, too.
    I guess there may be problems with the video making system (even though Island Living nature documentaries can be edited).
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.
