October 23 - Everyone ready for the Friday Highlight? It's ready for you here.

Do You Miss Cars?

Let's be honest, do you miss having cars? I feel like they were such a neat feature to at least TS3 (the only edition of Sims I've played besides TS4.) I liked being able to upgrade them as you climbed the financial ladder, much like real life. I feel like they added a dose of realism to the game which is missing in TS4.
Do you miss that feature and would you like cars to be included in future editions of the Sims?

    Yes, I love to have cars and a open world again.

    I miss cars, but not because of the gameplay so i don't care if 4's world is closed. I miss having specific bb to build garages and i miss having all kind of car models from really cheap to high end. I miss building a big garage with lots of luxury cars for my millionaires...

    My favourite mode of transportation in TS3 was the Vespa. Cars were boring because you could only use them to go from one point to another. In TS2 we had cars and it was possible to travel either by car or to walk to lots and many of my sims used the walk option. But cars were fun on their own, you could work on one model to upgrade it and for all other cars you could sit in and listen to music, or woohoo, take car for a spin, and get alarm installed. I miss cars because of the gameplay and the fact that poor sims could buy a beat up car and upgrade it and rich sims a nice sports car, and eventually transportation from point A to pint B was really just a small part of the gameplay associated with cars.

    I miss having cars as I felt they made the game a bit more realistic if thats the type of gameplay you are going for but it doesn't bother me not having them either

    Oh no, I don't miss cars. But I miss horses for sure. Why didn't they come with the Pets pack?

    I liked having cars in both TS2 and TS3. If we do get them for TS4, then I hope they don't skimp out on the animations like they did with TS3 and we can have door opening and climbing in animations. The way this iteration is going though, it will likely be a *poof* and we're in the car! (Much like TS3 was).

    I can't say that I miss them though. Would I make use of them if they re-appeared? For sure. I'd be equally fine if they never came back though. As someone else mentioned, I think I do miss more things that came with or because of cars, such as garage doors.

    Because money. Like most things with TS4, the packs have been broken into smaller parts and it's probably why we have more packs than ever before. If a farming pack was ever in the works, they could add horses to that and force people into another pack. ;)

    I miss being able to rebuild the car like we could do in Freetime. But not the cars themselves because I would teleport more Sims to where they needed to go.

    Yes. They added a lot of realism. Especially police and things like that
  • crocobauracrocobaura Posts: 1,824 Member
    I have a feeling that it may not be possible to implement cars in TS4 for some reason, and this is why we still don't have police cars and firefighters and, by extension, burglars. I mean, the maid and the repairman show up without a car and that is completely feasible, but you can't really have the police come to make an arrest without a car, or the firefighters show up without a truck. Hence, no firefighters, no police, no burglars.

    No, I really don't miss cars in the sims game. Cars became a major issue in the sims 3 and in the sims 2 they didn't drive anywhere. The sims 3 they would leave the cars in the middle of the road or purchase to many cars while your not playing with them and this became a issue for the game crashing. There are many CC's cars you can download just to sit in the driveway I'm sure of it just like the sims 1.

    I don't miss them, never cared about them. I hope they are added for people that want them, but I don't care at all myself

    That all got straightened out with NRAAS mods so much so that it's not even a major issue.

    The reason why TS4 is so boring is because it doesn't have enough things in it to immerse the player. So if you all keep excusing the game for have so little few good features, then no wonder it isn't as good as it can be. For example, you suggested to just use CC cars in TS4. But even in TS2 which is also a closed world, you can fix it up, install an alarm, listen in the car to the radio, kiss/cuddle in the car, even woohoo in the car. All these other people are at least asking for those things. Not just make it a decoration for your lot.

    We don't have those realism features like we did in previous editions of Sims because EA got greedy and cut as many corners as they could and only released content they could get us to pay for. I don't think many of us would pay for a pack just to get firefighters, burglars, and policemen. EA could very easily release a patch adding those features (in addition to cars) to the game, like they added toddlers, but they won't.

    Yes, I really miss them. That's the item that I'm missing the most in The Sims 4 currently, along with garage doors.

    I look forward to unintentional hilarity when my sim will take out his car from inventory and will place it in the middle of the cafe because he needs to go home. Anyway, rockets vanish into thin air but we still have them in game. Cars will be similar.

    I miss when a car would pick Sims up for work. The disappearing act is a little old. I don't miss having one in the driveway. I do remember that making a garage was one of my fave things in Sims 3.

    I never played previous versions of The Sims (new simmer here!) but I do really want cars and possibly a more open world? From what I've seen of The Sims 2 and 3, the cars are very well implemented, and if they added cars to The Sims 4, it would go a long way. I feel like TS4 isn't as realistic as previous versions, so cars would be great to have in the game, whether open world or not. The feature does seem like it would be extremely glitchy at first, however, and knowing The Sims, it would probably be a game pack or stuff pack. I personally would only use cars if they were a free update, because they're a logical next step to the game.

    Nope. Also, they would only function satisfactory in an open world.

    Loved the animation is S2 and how they could interact inside the cars and I loved how teens could learn how to drive in S3. In S4, they just teleport once they hang out the phone so I don't know how that would work in existing worlds.

    I am one of those who are dying to get horses. I don't know about other players but my Danish royal legacy will not be the same without horses, because our kings around year 1800, 1900 all loved to ride horses. During World War 2 our king Christian d. 10. was famous for riding through Copenhagen every morning, and riding a white horse across the south border when we reunited with Schleswig.
