    Thanks for this. I don't expect to see any results from this (except maybe a winter vacation pack... that might be the next November/December release) before 2021 at the earliest.

    It looks like they may be considering a winter vacation pack....and hotels/resorts. I hope so! I’d like another mountain world with skiing and sledging!

    OMG i hope this ideas move forward! Everything i ask for: better relationships with interests etc, winter vacation, hotels, more traits and aspirations!
    Ive never answered this surveys before... does it usually means that we're getting this? So excited!

    I literally chose ‘very interested’ to pretty much everything. Of course I want more lot traits, aspirations, skills. Of course I want my sims to be more fleshed out, their lives making more of an impact! I really hope they’re serious about making the game better because a lot of those survey choices could do it...

    Interesting survey! A winter-themed GP would be really awesome! I like the idea of better/more in-depth sim-relationships and personally I also hope to see more unique sim-traits in CAS.

    Very interesting, I told them we need more relationships in the family tree, and that was "very dissatisfied" with the game overall.

    This survey was varied and interesting. I like that they're taking interest in how much we would want traits, active careers etc as well as possibly looking into older packs again. I felt more than happy to rate them and give suggestions.

    Very interesting survey. Personal factors affect how well a Sim gets along with another and choose your Sims’ activity level, social preferences, habits, etc. Sounds a bit like a personality overhaul. I hope this survey reflects on what they want to be working on. Going back to older packs and update them and possibly add more content could be interesting as well.

    I'm so glad they had that part about CAS, I hope they actually read everything. I've talked serval times on the forums about how frustrated
    I am with their lack of variety in afro-textured hairstyles and how grey-toned the darker skin tones are so I wrote some of that in the survey, even gave them some search terms for their research. Here's hoping they listen!

    (on a side note; i need a winter world but I hope it's not purely vacation)

    Yess they asked about personalities, relationships, and CAS! I really hope they implement the things mentioned here, these would be really great quality of life improvements!
  • Mariefoxprice83Mariefoxprice83 Posts: 6,594 Member
    I wish I'd mentioned improving whims.

    I'm at question 9 and i don't understand the question. what is meant by "Brands"? as in working with other companies or charities? doing what exactly? More elaboration required. I just left that question blank.

    Question 7 is one i could go on forever typing out ideas for creating my sim and the stories surrounding them, but without contact from the guru's, there seems little point (frankly that question could of been greatly expanded on).

    I enjoyed this survey so much! The first few pages was literally "very interested", and was so happy to see that they asked about relationships progress and possibly what seems like.. a system that could make Sims have some-what better personalities/relationship surroundings (ie: proposing to other Sims, etc).

    I am so excited and hope that this is something they're looking to improve upon and when I saw those packs that could be polished/adding additional development - super stoked and hope that they indeed take this feedback and look into some of the packs that definitely feel lack-luster in game-play content.

    I'm hoping they'll combine the vacation and owning a resort together into a game-pack, but. :/ maybe that will need to be an expansion pack? Not sure if all of that can fit into a game-pack, but I feel like the theme is much too similar and should be together. :) We could use more winter activities/family activities!

    I like that they asked a lot of questions about sim personalities, and making them more unique. At least that's what I felt a lot of the early questions were about.
  • bethyGracebethyGrace Posts: 653 Member
    Ski resorts sound cool and all, but I feel like we still need to focus on basics first :D

    I upvoted everything to do with deeper personalities and relationships.

    I really hope some of that will be coming soon!

    Yup! That was where I had so much trouble picking... Any or all would be welcome, but I had trouble choosing what I wanted most rather than just putting 10 for everything. I elevated the things that seemed related to memories most higly, but I couldn't really put anything super low in that section.

    Picking habits, choosing likes/dislikes, choosing interests in terms of compatibility with other sims, etc would all be so great! So long as it transferred over in to game play.

    Good survey! I would especially love snowboarding, mountain climbing and the idea of running a ski resort. For personalities I am super interested in everything except the things about certain personalities getting along with others better... that I don't want as I find it's hard for me when I'm trying to set up two sims and they just won't get along, it's one of the reasons why I don't like Sims 2 and get bored of it quick. The place to comment what you'd like the most I put non-mutual relationships. That's what I really want most, I want my Sims to have non-reciprocated crushes, or in my one storyline I need my kid to hate her stepmum who actually adores the kid but it just isn't working out lol.


    For old packs that I'd love to see updated I put Get to Work, Get Together and Island Living (3 packs that I really really love to play with and think an upgrade would just make them that much better)

    For brands I want them to collab with I put Disney haha. I wish I'd also listed the IOC cuz a Sims Olympic pack would be awesome but I thought of it too late.
