    I think the most cringe worthy thing is the fact that they know fans have been wanting farm related content for a LONG time now... and chicken coops is one of those things... so, instead of giving us a chicken coop, they give us a worm coop!? SERIOUSLY!? That's nasty!

    It's actually an insect hotel. A place where lots of different insects can nest. It was the only thing that I liked it the trailer, lol. I thought it was pretty cute, but not cute enough for me to actually want the pack :#

    This is not a farm pack, has nothing to do with farm packs... and that's an insect hotel, something that is very important these days with insects dying.

    Thank you for making this thread! I think when people voted on an "Eco-Living" type theme, which is pretty broad, they were expecting something entirely different. More farming aspects, some more animals, solar panels, a world that has a more farm-like feel.. this is just my take on it. Instead, we get a world [which i'm guessing will have like, six lots on it, knowing TS4 LOL], some new interactive items [candle making does not contribute to gameplay whatsoever], and maybe some new CAS & build items. YAWN! Where is the stuff we want? Cars [which I believe we've been asking for since TS4 originally came out] more fleshed out age groups, how about a Generations EP which would add more interactions & a whole boatload of new gameplay aspects??? I'm just so disappointed and done with this game. I can't wait for Paralives to come out, because with the way things are turning out for TS4, I'm guessing TS5 won't be any better.

    I definitely disagree. I don't get the connection between "Farming" and "Eco living" at all. In fact, farms are usually VERY bad for the environment.

    Yeah. Large scale farming is, and I honestly don't see how that would fit into the Sims anyway. I think people are thinking self sufficiency and smallholding, maybe?

    Farms are not bad for the environment.Which kinda farms you are referring too? The small or family own ones.Or the one's that are in factories? People want the local one's.

    Ew... that's still nasty. I didn't even know that was a thing and I now regret learning about it.

    Exactly. Plus, if it will only be limited to the new world, isn't it supposed to be a gamepack?

    Large scale farms. Agricultural pollution is actually considered to be one major cause of pollution nowadays. It releases a lot of toxins into the water and our atmosphere, namely chemicals and pesticides. Livestock farming is particularly bad with the methane gasses. It also engulfs the land with deforestation. It puts a lot of pressure on our planetary health. This is to name a few problems.

    Smallholding may be different though. I don't know the impacts of this. :smile:

    What bothers me is that this is like a supplement for Island Living and a bit of Laundry Day. To me, when that happens it's because you didn't made the game right, it takes two overpriced EP (both should have been GPs or one EP) and a SP? EP are like $40, I should get all this or at least the combination of IL and this EP for that price. The only thing I can say that is realistic about it is that going eco friendly can be expensive, in this case not so much for the sims but for the simmers. They could at least made a whole trilogy with IL or this one being the EP, either of those the GP and laundry day the stuff pack.

    Are they even going to update the conservationist career so that it works in this world too? Or are they not going to work together? Will I be able to use the things from this pack in Sulani?

    I kinda disagree with this.If your not careful with your waste.I think it really depends on the farm for large ones, and small one's.There is lot anti farm propaganda from animal extreminest .

    I know you probably mean the daily tasks, but the conservationist career does impact every world. The global policies effect everwhere. I usually give my sims energy shortages and restrict fishing.

    I kinda disagree with this. Sure some farms do watch their waste, and that's good, but the impact of agriculture on pollution is very real. And sure there is a lot of anti farm propaganda out there and some facts are twisted. To validate my point, I work for a Rural and Agricultural college, and reducing emissions from farming is one of our points of research.

    Honestly, I feel so mixed about this pack. If pollution only effects the 1 world, I'd be disappointed. I love the idea of polluting all the worlds.
    I'm curious to know how voting works as well. It would be really cool if you could use recycled material to actually build a full house, but I don't know if you can.

    I'm so conflicted, because I feel like there could be a lot of nice small details they added that they haven't shared with us, but I'm very skeptical.

    I'm still waiting to hear more about the game, but right now the lack of replayability kills it in my opinion!

    Exactly. Fertilizer wreaks havoc on waterways and oceans, causing algae explosions and chokes fish to death. The need for excessive antibiotics to keep livestock from getting ill is causing incurable super bacteria. And so on and so forth.
    There are better (and older) methods, but they are not financially viable unless you want a doubled grocery bill every month.

    Also, again, the connection between "Farming" and "Eco living" is strenuous at best. Also, the more high tech the better. "High tech" is not contradictory to Eco living at all:

    Electric cars, solar panels, wind and water turbines, high tech low-energy / low water using washers, dryers, showers, stoves, fridges etc...

    I love the idea of the cupcake machine but hate the idea of making room for one. I don't like the sizes of these things either :lol:

    Yeah I mean mostly the daily tasks which should go beyond Sulani and also add some of the new activities there are, maybe they can add some global policies as well. There aren't much details about that yet to see which things can be added without clashing.

    It's ironic, but kinda like in really life.Stuff like Wind mills are actually can bebad for environment.Because they kill birds, and when they are broke.They can't not be recycle.

    @chons95 I bet they haven't included cross pack with the conservation career but it would be something I'd enjoy.
