What are some features from other games you wish were in Ts2?

Whether it is PC games, mobile or console.

Correct me if these are in a Sims 2 Expansion I do not have yet!

If you know of a good mod that may support these ideas or someone elses' comment, feel free to share them.

☆ Breastfeeding!! I love that you can do that in TS4. It is so touching. Also taking a pregnancy test and becoming sad if it is negative. I think this would work well for a family sim, but can be a bad memory for a romance sim.

☆ Moodlets from TS3. I think it would make sims more dynamic! The personalities are already great, but I like how moodlets describe EXACTLY how your specific sim feels about something. You can assume why your sim is doing something in TS2, for example shy sims will dance much more discreetly. This is of course because they are shy. Moodlets with descriptions can explain why. While I do like exploring actions and seeing why one sim does something one way and another does it differently without it being spelled out to me, there are other benefits to moodlets too.

For example, in TS2 i dont bother brushing my sims teeth or grooming in the mirror. I dont know if it adds a hygiene boosts or not, but if it does its a negligible amount. With a moodlet, it tells me that my sims feel fresh from doing so and adds a boost to their happiness in TS3. The offside to this though is if I add too many "happy boosting" actions it can end up like TS4, where if you drink enough juice or something you will stop being sad when your dad dies. But I think if the boost is small enough it will not change. But I dont want the emotion system from TS4, and in TS2 when a mate cheats or dies they will randomly cry anyway with a thought bubble showing the deceased or cheating, so we do not need an emotion system anyways.

Even moodlets that do nothing, like the "its dark" moodlet when you have no lights does no positive or negative to needs, but I like seeing how my sims feel about it.

☆ Id like to see some traits reworked as quirks or characteristics. I don't think traits should replace the personality system. They are not deep/dynamic enough. But I think they should be added. For example, being a vegetarian is NOT a personality. But I think it should work as a quirk/trait, still allowing your sim to have a specific diet. You could have 2 or 3 options like that to add to your sim that doesnt affect their personality per say but specific to a sim. "Traits" like being a vegetarian, technophobe, never nude, loves the heat, likes dogs, hates art etc. They alone are not enough for a personality but are good for adding details to a sim.

What are your ideas?

    From Sims 3 Generations I would have loved to see Sims ask For their partners hand in marriage from their parents, Kids pulling pranks, kids having a treehouse, teens going to prom, parents going on the free vacation and then the teens having a party. From Sims 4 Toddler Stuff Toddlers being able to do play dates with other toddlers, playing with toys and what not. Also I wouldn't have mind seeing the Parenthood pack in Sims 2 it would have been very good for sims with the family aspiration.

    I'm thinking about it, moodlets could be good but I think Sims in the Sims 2 already have a lot of (hidden) personality. The only thing I miss from Sims 4 when I'm playing 2 is the graphics.

    For some reason, I liked the budget panel that opens up in The Sims 1 when you click on the household funds.
    Would be great to see it again. Would be great in The Sims 2...
    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.

    One of the biggest features I wished was in Sims 2 is the ability to have the sim I'm playing vist other sim's homes.

    A few things, I wish I could have in TS2 the Sim sit down while using a phone and or cellphone. And a menu so I could find my objects easier because sometimes, I over look stuff in buymode especially with a lot of cc in game. I would like to be able to type in something and have the game search it for me inside my game. MISC can get huge. :p

    But I have mods for almost anything I felt was ignored. Like sit anywhere while drinking from a bar or watch TV from any seat in the room instead of directly facing a TV etc. Those are great mods. ETA: So is sleep on any lot and skill on any lot, townies will also gain skills if they use something that offers a skill. So is the mod to add more walkbys and cars passing the lot. It's almost as immersive as open world. The cars are the best since it makes it feel like a busy city at your Sim house.

    I wanted the ablity to visit neighbors in TS2 but with a mod to control the other Sim visiting and then switch and play that Sim while on my lot it's no longer that important to me. lol Just have to remember they will age on my lot if still there at 6 and will run off to work if I'm controlling them on my lot (or even a community lot) if I don't stop right before due to go to work and there is a risk I break relationship memory system if I do this too often. lol

    And with another one:

    With Sim Blender (a plant) on any lot I can fix just about anything or do anything.

    Yes, brushing teeth and washing face add about 3 points to fix hygiene. Also so do better sinks. Why have a cheap sink that only has 2 points if you wash your Sim's hands if you can have a 6 point sink. :D And the AL mirror is very handy when you don't have room to add another full bath. So, if the other one is occupied you can revert to the mirror and fix a dirty Sim and not have to wait on the shower. Base game 'gussy up' also adds hygiene points if no sink.

    I know which is why I kind of want it as a feature. It just sucks that they aren't able to multitask with it. Oh well at least the sims animations when using them is pretty funny

    I eventually stopped giving my sims the MP3 players and handhelds as they would bust them out at the most random times, and it took so long to put the things away. Now I typically only have them on people that they 'fit', like handhelds on gamer career/gaming hobby sims, or children.

    I forgot one I wish I really could do and that is take babies, toddler to community lots. In Pleasantview (I think it's that base game town) there are changing tables in a community bathroom on one of the grocery store or general store lots. Why didn't they do that? and let us take babies to commmunity lots since they put those changing tables in the basegame bathrooms. Also, one more thing I really wish I could do is send kids out on their own to my parks and fishing spots and theaters I built. (Leave home lot without somone else going with them).
