    When I first heard about this pack, I was like, "seriously, who would buy this..." then today I saw the animated picture with the cats.

    I understand now.
    I'm probably one of the rare few here, but I love using the occult aspects in my Sims 4 games. xD

    This is such a strange addition to the Sims, but I honestly love it. I don't knit, but I crochet, and it's just one of those flavor things that make the world more real and customizable, and closer to how things actually are. Everyday the Sims get easier to make just like my own family haha very cool. Keep up the good work.

    This seems to be quite complete. I'm excited even though I haven't knitted anything in my entire life. I'm excited for the etsy equivalent, for having a grandma live her best life and knit in a rocking chair something for her grandchildren to wear, just like my grandma.

    I had really hoped to get this pack today... since it's July 28th... but as usual a California based company believes the entire world revolves around their time zone.
    Here's a tip if you want to keep your global clients satisfied... don't only state the date of release but the time zone you are basing your release on. For me, it's past noon and I still cannot purchase or download this pack. It's disappointing. Living through a pandemic makes this even harder to deal with when a company as big as Electronic Arts cannot get their heads into the Global Market Think Space when creating games and content for those games.
    From now on, don't just say "Available (month, day, year)" but also state the time zone you are basing your launch time on, that way those of us who have woken up half a day before you get out of bed and start your morning routine would not be sitting here being completely disappointed that we have to wait until the day AFTER you stated was the launch day to actually be able to get the promised item.

    You see, by the time you actually launch the game in California... I'll be in bed sleeping.

    9am for you is 6pm for me.

    It should not be incumbent on your customer to find out the actual launch of your product in their country. Good customer service is a team who can think on a Global Market, since you want that Global income... and make life so much nicer on everyone by simply adding the actual time zone you are basing your launch on. Example: Available July 28th, 2020 at 10am PDT. This allows your customers the opportunity to verify what time that is for them. Using the example I listed, customers in New York, NY would know that the launch is at 1pm in the afternoon for them. I would know that the launch is at 7pm in the evening for me. For my friends in New Zealand would know that the launch is at 5am on July the 29th for them.

    I know some of you are new to the team, but for your customers... your company has literally had 2 decades of making The Sims and its about time the team learned to think Globally and do better at clarifying your actual launch date and time.

    Well, that explains why my code doesn't work. And I agree with Genie1221 - include time zones.

    For what it's worth, I'm only two hours ahead of EA Local Time (Pacific), and am well within US zones. I NEVER get the packs on day-of anymore. One time I waited two days and still couldn't get past the "Whoops, something's wrong" notice. I learned to pre-order when I can, but often I can't even do that. It's 7:25 pm local time, and I still can't find a link that will let me buy the knitting pack.

    I just got the pack about an hour ago. Has anyone else noticed the lack of the Metal radio station in the pack? I got "Focus" but not "Metal".

    I take that back, I don't have "focus" either now that I rechecked it. I could have sworn it was listed before.

    That's odd, because I have both of those stations. My Grandma was able to knit to the Focus station and thereby fulfill one of the aspiration milestones, and my teenager both brutally danced and then played air guitar to the Metal station. After he had listened to it once, I noticed he had a habit of turning whatever stereo he was near to that station (although that may have been a coincidence).
