Vanilla subforum?

Could it be possible to open a subforum for gamers who play this game without mods?
It's really confusing to read about all the bugs and issues after every patch only to realize later that they were caused by mods (or CC).
Right now after June patch I'm afraid to even open my vanilla game because I don't know what bugs are related to the game and what are caused by broken mods.

Also it would be nice to talk about the game with other vanilla gamers.

    @Kimmer I take it that you're talking about TS4, right? If so maybe there aren't many vanilla players on this forum?

    I've seen many people here claiming that it's completely impossible to play TS4 without lots of mods and CC, and that they would be bored to death and overwhelmed with unfixed bugs if they tried.

    Yes, I'm talking about Sims 4.
    I know there are vanilla players here because of all the polls about the subject. There is a section for mod users in here, but not a lot of players use it. Since most players use mods it could be changed to vanilla game section.

    It's not impossible to play Sims 4 without mods, I've been doing it 5 years.There are sometimes bugs that are annoying (like right now), but this game has always been very enjoyable and very playable for me. I have a lot of things to do and a very vivid imagination, I don't need mods.

    I would just like a place to discuss about the game with other players who play the game without mods. There are many subforums in here and since there are vanilla gamers here too, it shouldn't be too much to ask to have one tiny section for us.

    Agree that the game is totally playable and enjoyable without mods. I do use UI Cheats but only to cheat motives when my Sims don't have time to eat or sleep. I have no mods that 'fix' anytime.

    @Kimmer you may want to consider just starting a thread in general discussion. Vanilla Gameplay Discussion. Or something like that. Maybe if it gets enough participation it could justify having a sub- forum for vanilla gameplay.

    @Kimmer I love your idea. I do agree with @simgirl1010 on that.

    It's a good idea. I may do it the next time I have something vanilla game related to discuss about. :)

    I really like your suggestion. I play The Sims (3&4) without mods and thought this official forum for the game would be the natural place for discussions on the so called "vanilla" game; a rather silly term. The experience of TS3 section is the opposite, which made it uninteresting for me to keep interacting there.

    It's a bit odd that the suggestion is needed, this forum being the official forum for the per default vanilla game; and I would like it better if the situation were reverse, in that the ones playing with mods could have a specific thread instead. There are forums for the mods to go to if needing discussion, and I 'd also rather read those discussions for their insight, than the ones here, even without using the mods in particular.

    I play Vanilla, so far the only bug I am experiencing is that my plants revert back to planted or seed stage randomly. The only thing that irritates me a bit is the obsessiveness with drinking water again, it was fixed previously but is back now. Even in Batuu my sim will go to a vendor and buy water :o Otherwise my game seem to be running ok ;) Loading screens seem to be faster since Starwars, not sure why though LOL.
