The "Future Cube"? What can it be?

    Perhaps they combined farming with a historic-medieval theme, so we won't get machinery (so no vehicles), and Sims do everything by hand.

    That would be pretty cool! I think it could be a time-travel EP so we have the future and the medieval together, although that means it might be pretty empty rather than two in-depth separate packs.

    Edit: From the amount of hints and the way the SimGurus specifically said “Future Cube”, I think a June futuristic EP and a November medieval EP.

    I hope it's an Into The Future Pack. I really loved the items that came with that pack in TS3. TS3 added a future shopping mall,futuristic cars and a futuristic restuarent and holograms. Even the buildings were futuristic looking. We did get the dream pod back with Get Famous and that's one of my favorite beds and of course we have the robots that came with universities. Robots could be expanded on in a pack like this.

    Me too! I feel like it would be such a fun pack!

    Same. I don’t know I’m not interested in that. There are so many more things they should do before that. Cars, Farming, better emotions/traits/personalities, schools, etc.

    udder'ly, candela, climbing, uncertainity and pixelated outcomes are considered as positive (other five as just neutral)

    p.s. I already discovered (and posted) this new feature when the latest update got released
    My SuperSim Collection
    TS3: Rosetta Stone (less than 50 kB)
    TS4: Sona Ali (no cheats)

    Candlepower measure was created in 1860 and was replaced by candela in 1948.

    Using an object called the ‘future’ cube to hint at a future future-themed pack would be kinda genius though...

    I’m reminded of a tweet that @catloverplayer sent to SimGuruDuke about a fountain thing that looked kinda futuristic? Maybe this is what he was referencing?

    I agree. The TS3 future pack was not for me and I don’t really understand the time travel hype. Besides, I thought their next EP was supposed to be something ‘unexpected’? I’m intrigued to see what they would add for a future pack now that we already have servos and robotics though. And it’d be interesting to know whether it would be strictly future or if we could go into the past as well.

    I wouldn't mind something like travelling through the futurecube to a new world, past or future.......We might have to build our spaceship first or it could be an alternative way of getting there, if you have the GTW pack.

    Starting as a farmer, terraforming our plot of land,starting Off the grid in a more medieval style (that being the world's timeline), and improving techniques bit by bit. We could have farm animals included, llamas, cows, sheep, chickens. Aliens and alien animals too, even goblins or wherwolves. They wouldn't have to be Earth type and that would take out the problems some people have with certain animals. Barns with ladders?

    I've included a lot of my own imagination and wishes in it! I'd be upset if we didn't get any one of these. It's a wide variety of options! :'(

    Would be happy if it's a medieval or a farming pack.

    If it's time travel to the future i'm not interested at first thought, but i'ld have to see how it is done in sims 4. In 3 it didn't interest me at all!

    May it be a pirate adventure? The candles, the game Waves of Darkness, foes, battles...
  • akasevenakaseven Posts: 216 Member
    Sounds like a future pack to me... not really my cup of tea, I'd prefer a time travel to the PAST pack, but I won't write it off yet, I'm known to buy packs for the CAS/Build Buy if it goes on sale and I know there were people wanting this.

    if it really is an expansion with this theme and we didn’t have plumbots I would sincerely love to have the option to go back in the past, the content for those challenges that already exist would be huge and would certainly be a bittersweet expansion due to the CAS style, Objects and gameplay

    If this is true I would prefer it to be more space themed rather than future themed (to me they're two completely separate things - don't ask me how though hahah)

    I would love Sixam to get a proper livable/explorable world & they can reuse the world assets from GTW. It would also be cool if we could build our own spaceships to live in but I'm not sure how that would work ('floating' lots?) They've been experimenting with world design recently so this would be really cool to see.

    They could update aliens for those with GTW (what I would really want them to do) but they could also introduce aliens in the base game (unlikely) to work with the pack or introduce a new alien occult similar to what they did in TS3 with plumbots and simbots - similar things but two completely different lifestates?

    I don't know! Aliens seriously need more love in this game #makealiensawesome

    Although a future pack could still be cool, I guess... but I really want an alien update :mrgreen:


    ooownn i love sixam too, I even tried to put some custom lot to tweak my gameplay, I really would also love a space world (and finally a rework of the aliens?)

    I just went in game and had my sim ask the Future Cube about the future, and these are the results she got:

    1. "The threads of your future knit together in a wave of darkness". <--- reference to the upcoming community stuff pack?
    2. "Your uncertainty, certainly shall become certain, under certain situations in no uncertain terms." <--- any thoughts?
    3. "I see a gnome wielding a frozen rabbit riding atop a llama into battle against an udder'ly impressive foe." <--- no idea
    4. "Somebody is definitely going to get exactly what they want." <--- that's just a message for all of us speculators :p
    5. "Your future looks pixelated." <--- thoughts?
    6. "Without a doubt, that thing we talked about will come to be, as all of the signs are pointing to the answer that we agreed upon in our last discussion." <--- ???
    7. "Your future is... not bright, but illuminated... probably to an intensity of 0.981 candelas." <--- this one we need to research a bit I think!
    8. "Climbing to the top one rung at a time!" <--- if that's not a hint at ladders, then I don't know what is!
    9. "Self-organization will be key to a happy future." <--- This sound like another upcoming feature. Inventory organization perhaps?

    Please share your thoughts and any possible answers I didn't already discover!

    the first i agree, but the others i have no idea, with the exception of related to the future that can be tips for expansion.

    GOD I REMEMBER THAT, and the gurus said the looking for a expansion theme for add that.

    I would really love a futuristic expansion and another one in a measurable past at once, but the theories pointed out above that it can now be focused on the future and the gamepack in a kind of medieval remake would be incredible too.

    Could be ladders, but I'm thinking maybe bunk beds?

    Sounds legit. Would prefer a "back to the past/medieval" pack though.
    It's kind of sad that I have to point out that anything I say is only just my opinion and may be a different one from someone else.

    "Without a doubt, that thing we talked about will come to be, as all of the signs are pointing to the answer that we agreed upon in our last discussion."

    Could this be referring to those surveys we’ve been taking regarding new, and improved features in the game?

    maybe, the first surveys that I remember at least, suggested several improvements to the expansions launched as well as suggestions of themes. could there be a big patch before the expansion?

    assuming that it launches next month, would this be focused on updates and creating the next hyper?

    oh so many questions, I just wanted an announcement soon

    Few days ago I look at some old survey about new DLC options (surveys from 2015/16). Some of them already been done - University, beach theme and magic for example. Some of the ideas was in the latest survey - romantic theme, winter vacation and bands/musical theme. So I guess, base on the surveys, that is gonna be - A. Space/future pack
    B. Hotels related pack
    After I saw this hints... It's probably be space/future theme, which I'm not so excited about - I hated TS3 Into The Future. It's was so boring to me. I hope this one going to be more interesting and feature new kind of aliens, maybe aliens pets also.

    Also, there was an idea about apocalypse DLC when you need to save the town and rebuild it. But I assume that idea lead to strangville. Maybe we going to get zombies? Whatever. I'm waiting for bands and singers pack.

    Same, it seems like it’s been ages since we’ve had new content and I am stir crazy 😜. A future pack isn’t necessarily my cup of tea gameplay wise, but they’re hitting it out of the park lately with CAS and BB. So, no matter what I will likely buy it. Plus I didn’t know I would enjoy Strangerville as much as I do, bu I still play it even now.

    yesss, I am desperate for any new content and basically as a fan of doctor who already imagine the possibilities it may have, what I loved most about into the future, was the CAS and Objects that the expansion brought.

    I hope it‘s ladders! You could climb up the ladders in your barn!

    Also bunk beds are very much needed.
