i know there are people disappointed with the results but off the top of my head there are some real good possibilities to come out of this: even if its not what you wanted it can be more than just a knitting animation and boom - you get one sweater.
so some possibilities just off the top of my head right now:
1. return of the imaginary best friend: your adult-elder sim can now knit a stuffed animal that can be given to an infant or toddler. once the child grows up it becomes an imaginary best friend. so the little elephant stuffed animal or the dragon stuffed animal - whatever it could be - poofs into the imaginary best friend that was in sims 3. it won't be creepy this time around, hopefully, it will just look like a walking talking knitted stuffed animal.
2. rocking chairs: sims can now have rocking chairs back in their game, they can rock and read, knit, hold a baby (god, can we please get that baby overhaul?), or snooze.
3. fun cas objects: horribly made sweaters, horribly made socks, the range from poor to excellent quality would be a fun addition. sims with low knitting skills will create objects that...well, aren't very good. as they skill up the quality will increase and so will their clothes or things they create. i'm hoping that they will play with the emotion system with this, a sim wearing a piece of garbage knitted shirt will have an embarrassed moodlet. or a sim with a nicely knitted sweater will have a confident moodlet. who knows, it will definitely alter gameplay.
4. build and buy objects: if they do an elder focused pack, it would be nice to have some build buy assets that look like the inside of a grandmother's home. just as a funny joke, even though the item could be useless i'd love to see that blue cookie tin () make an appearance. just some build/buy assets like these:
what other possibilities can you see happening in this pack?
