    Though based on how long it took, we may not see it until 2022

    Was hoping to see a Sims5 in 2022. A Happy Haunts could be interesting.

    I LOVE THIS!

    If the RUNNER UP from LAUNDRY'S poll got a whole EXPANSION pack (and elements of it squeezed into IL), I should be able to expect Happy Haunts getting at least a game pack. Honestly I'll be really disappointed if we don't get something with at least one of those gameplay elements before Sims 4 is over. I'd love to do tarot, be a ghost buster, or work for the Grim Reaper.

    I’m Pretty sure they mean something like a fortuneteller in a traditional ‘Romani Van’. In the Sims 3 there was a fortuneteller career in a rabbit hole ‘Gypsy Wagon’.

    Thanks,that didn't cross my mind at all.

    just for future reference, the word "G*psy" (and all of its derivatives) is a slur for the Roma/Romani people. we shouldn't use it as a cutesy harmless term

    there's many readings/texts on the history of it, but here's one article for people who want to click the link

    Hi,

    From the 1st community vote (2017), Eco Living Stuff became EP09 Eco Lifestyle and Starter Home Stuff became SP16 Tiny Life Stuff.

    Theme ranking:
    1. Eco Living
    2. Starter Home
    3. Dangerous
    4. Wedding
    5. Arcade

    Dangerous Stuff became Happy Haunts in the 2nd community vote (2019)
    https://simsvip.com/2019/11/12/the-sims-4-maxis-to-launch-community-stuff-pack-vote-november-18th/

    Theme ranking:
    1) Arts & Crafts (SP17 Nifty Knitting Stuff)
    2) Happy Haunts
    3) Self-Care
    4) Science & Technology
    5) Fun-Tech

    Like SP16 Tiny Life Stuff in 2017, Happy Haunts was the 2nd choice so there should be a pack about this theme.

    Hmm you might have something there.

    I'm curious about how the Grim Reaper career could be.

    Should the sims be able to resurrect ghosts ? But what else they could do ? Planned the death of a sim ?

    Planning the death seems a fun feature...But I do wonder what will this pack looks like? More than anything, I wish that they'll give us cemetery or new event on this, perhaps in a patch.

    And now here is my secret, a very simple secret...

    Agreed on Cemetary. We have a Pet Cemetary in Brendleton Bay so there is no reason they couldn't add one for Sims.

    The lot needs to be editable though. The Pet Cemetery in Brindleton Bay is part of a fixed environment. I may be wrong but I doubt you can place your dog's tombstone there...Same as the graveyard in Forgotten Hollow. It's background decor.

    Would love the idea of ghost town. Add a memory system like in sims 2 as well.
    Reminds me of the movie Coco.

    A Ghost town with a Western style would be cool !

    If they really added the Grim Reaper career, I want to create a household that based on Black and White Impermanence (the Grim Reapers in Chinese folklore)
    If have color wheels will definitely be more convenient

    I'd only be really interested in a pack like this if we could actually follow our Grim Sims to the Netherworld. That would be really cool!

    A functioning graveyard where we could leave urns would be great. Go over and visit the older relatives and friends now and then. Or heckle your enemies.

    Hmm...

    I would actually want this area to be kind of neutral but editable.

    Would prefer not to have a canon-Wild Wild West afterworld when I think that I could build something more occult and interesting myself.

    Something like the spellcaster’s HQ so that I can edit and make it my own.

    Oh my god. I never realized until now just how badly I wanted to literally send my sims to hell. If we ever got a Happy Haunts pack there better be some form of Underworld realm or Im losing whatever little faith I had left for the franchise.

    Right? Like a Sims Spark'd pack would be so much more appealing than a Graveyard EP with enhanced ghosts and expanded spooky features :*

    I actually miss the Ghosthunting career.
    I'd be happy with 'Happy Haunting theme' as a GP..!
  • GracieO312GracieO312 Posts: 521 Member
    @telmarina and @InuMiroLover

    Yeah I'm thinking something similar to the Underworld in Disney's Hercules - a giant cave with a River Styx type thing running through it where all the ghost Sims hang out for eternity and then you've got Grim's house on top of a giant mountain. I think it would be such a cool thing to have in game :) Where most of the floor is lava and the whole place is covered with that black mist that surrounds Grim's feet.

    It would be cool if alive Sims could try and get there to get their loved ones back instead of the usual rock-paper-scissors they usually do with Grim...

    I really hope happy haunts is the game pack for this year. I’d be really thrilled . There’s so much they can do with it. I’d prefer they don’t add werewolves so they can focus more on possibly adding a hell for us to go into & a overhaul on ghosts & adding a cemetery. I think werewolves can wait for a different pack . But who knows?
