    Mostly to see builders rave about the feature for five hours but I’d honestly like to do it myself.

    I hate the popcorn ceiling in my room and if I could fix it in a minute or ten minutes (If I want it to look good) I totally would.

    Absolutely NEED this! I hate that we can't change the ceilings! It looks horrible if you're building some rustic wood cabin and then BLAM! White (or hideous grayish/purple) ceiling!

    That's just one more little irritating thing that I dispise about TS4! A ceiling is nothing but a floor over head, why they took that ability away I'll never know.

    I always play with my walls up, I also use the TS3 camera so I DO see the ceiling, all of the time.

    It’s not a priority, not even a want but a ‚would be nice I guess’. Same with ceiling windows.

    Yeah, I'm another TS4 camera user. :)

    You can at least make roof windows which is amazing. I've done some in my game after watching this Roof Window Tips & Tricks by Marmelad. No mods or cc required.

    Some who like taking pictures and/or doing machinima videos might also really like the idea of painting and/or adding various ceiling styles.

    I'm a builder who happens to be in the bolded category. 😂 Yet, there are those who feel this makes perfect sense for many of the reasons you listed.
    Many of you may not even notice the ceilings -good for you- but I believe there are plenty of builders and storytellers among the sim4 community that agree at some level that the white overhead ‘things’ in their builds do not make sense whatsoever, when using full Camera mode, First Person View, All Walls Up, or whichever way you would like to look at it. The ceiling that is.

    Here’s the entrance of the Haunted Mansion I just built. Wouldn’t it look nicer with a decorated ceiling ?

    Personally I play on TS4 camera mode, so I never see the ceilings unless I take pictures in tab mode camera. And sometimes I wish we could have a few ceiling paints or wood ceilings.

    Or they could also add a few things to the ceiling decorations category : Moldings, beams, cracks, humidity stains (for creepy builds)…..

    I always loved the beautiful ceiling decors from Sims 3. It's too bad it's not back in Sims 4. Oh well :'(

    @Dianesims your haunted mansion looks great! I’m a sucker for all things haunted. It’s haunting me. 👻

    But look at those poor ceilings indeed. They deserve so much better. The mansion deserves better. We deserve better.
    For a game that wants to be so aesthetically pleasing all the time I’m extremely confused about the fact that the ceilings still behave like something that should be locked up in a bunker deep, deep, deep, oh so deep underground. 😭
    Festive greetings from Simmingal I hope you all love my new profile picture his lordship Vladdy would be proud EA don’t forget we need more romance interactions I’d say very early next year would be a good time!

    never understood how to use them in ts3 though :sweat_smile: so hopefully its easier if they add for ts4

    In 3 it's just like the floor. It's actually the floor patterns, only we have to select the ceiling instead.

    I don't notice it often because I usually play with walls down but I'd like it anyway for the people who play with the camera differently than I do.

    Would definitely like the option, with a wide variety. Pretty much essential if one is doing builds that are either high-class or earlier than 1950 or so..

    Yawn. (What? Ceilings?)

    One of my favorite ceiling styles are trayed ones. Slanted ceilings also make for some great designs especially if they are coupled with decorative beams.

    The trayed ceiling and Slanted Ceilings.

    I LOVE fancy ceilings like this and I’d be into that. But wouldn’t it look weird if a tray ceiling didn’t have 3D texture? Maybe it could be applied like the exterior trims. The beams can be faked now using spandrels, as far as I know.

    I wouldn’t be painting the ceiling the same color as the walls because that makes rooms feel darker and smaller IRL so it’s not something I’d naturally gravitate towards. But if they did add a way to paint them, I’d use blue under porch roofs like my grandma had, and might like a blue sky with clouds for a kid’s room.

    I would love to bring back the option to paint the ceilings. I would love if maybe added in new features using an paint tools to use spray tool, brush tool, stamp tool, adding layers of patterns on the ceilings like we had tools in “cats & dogs” cas for pets, & to have an option to decorating your the ceiling.

    White ceilings are easy to ignore most of the time but sometimes they're jarring. They don't always fit the style or the type of build. For example, the island style house I'm building now would look so much better with wooden beams than it does with a plaster ceiling.

    Yesssss, please let us paint those horrid blank ceilings!
  • EnnamoraEnnamora Posts: 3 New Member

    Yes. Especially in certain builds it would come in handy that we could paint our ceilings. I don't mind the white ceilings in some builds, but with certain type of builds, white ceilings just look ugly.

    I don't really care either way. I'm not much of a builder. However, I do take notice of a house's decor, so yeah, why not? It's funny you should mention this. Last night I was playing and I noticed that my toddler's room had all pink walls and a white ceiling, and I started wondering if it was possible to paint ceilings but I guess not.
