    This pack is sounding lovelier all the time <3 I really like the idea of Plopsy. I think it's great to have another way to sell the items the sims craft; particularly as it's including woodwork and paintings. A very lovely touch and a great way for the sims to have access to knitted items without making them themselves. Sounds brilliant, if you ask me!
    Looking forward to this pack very much <3

    Wow! I really like this idea! It sounds very good! I think I am going to like Plopsy a lot! ;)

    Plopsy sounds like its going to be the only interesting part of this pack for me. Wonder what else besides knits, paintings and woodworks will be added alongside? Just the idea makes me want to have a spellcaster with an online potion shop.

    I like the idea of Plopsy but will we all so be able to sell our knitted clothes on the mannequins from Get To Work as well?

    Loving the features so far. However, the fact that some outfits will be locked until knitted will be little annoying to me. If you'd add a cheat to unlock them mometarily (so I can create sims with these items to start them off or putting knitted items on sims after age up), I'd be happy with that.
    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.

    Maybe the career outfit unlock cheat will work for that?

    The reminisce interaction sounds cute

    I'm not sure how to feel about the unlockable clothes in CAS. I'm not interested in knitting

    @EgonVM sounds like you can buy the locked items on Plopsy.

    I love the idea of Plopsy, the name... well, I don't mind it. Love the logo for it!

    Would also be interested in this. Herbalism Concoctions? Flower arrangements? Collectibles like the snow globes and MySims Trophies? Although at what point does it just make a physical retail store redundant?

    Yes it sounds nice !! I also like that they’ve apparently unlocked one swatch of the knitted clothes and the other ones can be knitted to unlock them.

    Well, my main idea was when I create NPC sims to my game. I won't play with them, so I can't go on Plopsy to buy the clothing for them. Plus it seems like it's chance (like consignment stores in The Sims 3), so if I do a set-them-up play to them, most of the time I won't find a clothing piece I want.

    One of these days, Plopsy or not, I wish we could buy some new bedcovers for those beds! :)

    I'm a girly girl and I love the color palette. I'm especially excited to have more activities for the elders.

    Yeah, I feel the same. I miss being able to choose the frame and bedcovers separately.

    Everything sounds great! I love the "Plopsy" idea, I love rocking chairs and the reminiscing idea, I love having clothing items you can unlock with skill. I'm very excited about this pack and everyone is doing a wonderful job! Thank you! <3<3<3

    Tbh, I didn't think I'd like this pack, not as much as not liking MFP, but with the addition of an EBay I'm in. B)

    Same. I am a little annoyed something like an online store is being included in a knitting stuff pack and not in either the obvious gripe of base game or perhaps even Get To Work.
  • telmarinatelmarina Posts: 1,900 Member
    My favourite is the online store. It reminds me of the consignment store in sims 3. I hope sims can sell more stuff though. The amount of different stuff that sims can sell there will be decisive for me as it is the feature that i really want from this pack (i didn't want the pack at all before, this made me finally interested).
    I also like the idea of reminiscing, but im afraid it will be as random as the journal. I wish that this was a sign that a proper memory system would be on the way. Who knows... maybe in the august update...

    I have to say, I really don't see why they needed an all new way to sell stuff. I mean, maybe that could have been something free to tie into the pack, but I really don't think it should be taking up content here. I just hope this "plopsy" stuff isn't at the expense of other content, such as getting knitting for kids. They still haven't addressed that yet and it's making me nervous. I also hope elders get more unique stuff in this pack. The reminisce thing is a nice start, but I'd like to see more for them, such as elders being able to knit more high quality stuff, or just being able to knit more things in general.

    Elders often don't knit anymore because of poor eyesight and shaky hands.

    that is the truth. there used to be a "stitch-n-b_____c" circle at a yarn shop and it was definitely not full of elders! Mostly women, mostly ages young to middle aged. All this needlework stuff is depicted in what, old cartoons? as an old lady thing, but by the time they really are old ladies, arthritis and eyesight and tremor seem to be factors...of the slim slice of people who ever did it in the first place. But the knitting renaissance in recent years was not made of old people or even all women.
