Fix the base game. Fix the base game. Fix the base game.
I do not care what you want in this game. You might want alien space exploration. You might want eco- tulip-farming in the Swiss Alps. You may want your sims to journey to the center of the Earth as a warlock to cast spells on the creatures in the Earth's core. All of that does not matter to me in the least; I just won't buy those stupid packs. But all of it means nothing until you FIX THE BASE GAME.
The new pack has candle-making. Swell. How many candles can you make until you're sick of watching your Sim make the same 🌺🌺🌺🌺 candles. Anything they can add like this is just a temporary fix, a hit until you get bored and need to buy another pack with a new activity (now you can make ragdolls, or soap, or WHATEVER). What WILL forever improve gameplay is FIXING THE BASE GAME.
Sims need personalities, meaningful aspirations, wants, fears, memories, REAL emotions that make sense to human beings, relationships that impact their lives. Then watching one Sim make a candle is different than watching another Sim make a candle because YOUR SIMS ARE UNIQUE. DEPTH not MORE STUFF.
