    The Sims 3 (Remake - name your requirements in comments below)
    Sims 3 has always been my favorite in the series. The ideal for me would be TS3 with the gallery, CAS, build-buy and UI of TS4 and remastered graphics. Oh and quicker loading times. So basically a combination of the best of TS4 with the best of TS3

    Not sure why people hate the rabbitholes so much because I like them. They're one of the biggest things I miss in TS4. It's nice to just send your sim off to a rabbithole restaurant and have them disappear for a while and come back happier, I can't be bothered to follow them around everywhere and do everything for them :#

    with more options to make the world more open and several other minor features from future games I think are necessary

    This - along with a simpler cap and less pre-created styles (because maxis didn't always have the best taste...) would be my dream game.

    The Sims 3 (Remake - name your requirements in comments below)
    From my ideas pool thread in 2015 and my views have not changed much since then :wink:

    This is just a collection of ideas for us to put together for a possible TS5, if and when it comes out.

    Life stages:
    All life stages should be included:
    Baby (real babies, not objects)
    Toddlers (could we go through the lack of toddlers again)
    Children (Keep them like they are)
    Pre teens (why not)
    Teenagers (With their own height & voice)
    Young Adults (Make them look very slightly younger than Adults)
    Adults (No change needed)
    Elders (With their own walk, wrinkles and voice)

    World:
    Open World only, no silly loading screens. If it worked in 2009, it will work in the future
    Allow us to add lots of any size and edit the world as we wish
    Make it look like GTA but without the violence lol

    Gameplay:
    Keep it cool like TS1, TS2 & TS3 style with charm and humour
    Leave out angry poops

    Traits and Aspirations/ Lifetime wishes:
    Make Traits & Lifetime wishes like TS3 & Aspirations like TS2

    Careers:
    Bring back all basic careers as well as options for part time work and for teens to work their own hours to fit in with school

    Careers should be:
    Business
    Police
    Medical
    Education
    Culinary
    Journalism
    Politics
    Criminal
    Military
    Sports

    Part time:
    Grocery Store
    Grave Digger (why not)
    Bookstore

    Teens:
    Same as adults but part time as well as part time jobs

    Community Lots:
    Rabbit holes for workplaces like TS3 but an option to edit them
    Park
    Library
    Swimming Pool
    Gym
    Fishing Spot
    Beach
    Bar/ Hangout

    Pets:
    Include in base game this time.
    Maybe just dogs and cats and add other animals in later EPs

    Weather:
    Basic weather like rain and mild storms.
    Add more weather in later EPs

    NPCs:
    Maid
    Gardner
    Repair man/woman
    Police
    Fire
    Mail Delivery
    Newspaper Delivery
    Burglar
    Pizza
    Humour (Tragic Clown, Social Bunny or something new)

    Build Mode:
    Everything that TS3 has but some of the new stuff from TS4, like different wall heights
    CASt (Bring it back in TS3 style)

    CAS
    The best of all of them.
    Bring back sliders

    Extras:
    Option to transfer Sims from one game to TS5, restoring family relationships and match skills where possible
    Option to transfer lots from one game to TS5 and copy textures and colours into the new CASt to save me having to rebuild my lots
    Option to transfer worlds from one game to TS5 matching roads and where to place lots and spawners to save me having to spend years rebuilding

    PR & forums:
    Regular presence of Gurus on the forums, asking for feedback & mention of bugs.
    Bugs to be fixed when the are apparent, and apologies for those who are getting them
    Game to be play tested
    Forum user has to own a copy of TS5 to join forum to prevent constant troll attacks
    One month's membership before one can share images, links & start PMs to prevent troll attacks
    The 'Rockstar Attitude' for making the game great

    Developer:
    Someone who has passion for The Sims, many of the members of this forum can apply
    Someone who follows the 'Will Wright Vision'
    Someone like me :smiley:

    The Sims 3 (Remake - name your requirements in comments below)
    What about somewhere designed for children like a fun house
    And height sliders
    And firemen
    And church ( that would be tricky because of the fact that there is many religions)
    And restaurants
    And freelancers
    And vets
    And the ANGRY POOP interaction with a toilet
    And keep the TS4 camera but with the option to use ts3 camera
    And keep the cartoony graphics
    And funerals
    And wills
    And the ability to own as many houses as you want
    And to rent houses you own to people to make money
    And the ability to not buy a house but rent it instead
    And trampolines
    And space rockets
    And easles
    All the current emotions+scared

    I would want them to update the graphics for Sims 1 and Sims 2 games. EA isn't the same company it once in its heyday with the current CEO and Board of Directors. I am going to be good and not say what I honestly think about the company and CEO because I don't want to offend anybody by throwing shade or get another warning from the Gurus for not playing nice with others. If we had EA the way it was back it's Golden Years I would be all for a remake rather than just jazzing up graphics and making it playable on modern computers. Keeping it simple assures that they can't mess it up too badly. If I offended anybody or appeared to throw any shade today I apologize.



    Playtesting - not just tabletop games and card games any more. Really that should have been playtested in Beta and not [img]just with accounting and marketing but actual players. https://i.imgur.com/t48COW6.jpg[/img]

    The Sims 2 (Graphical Remaster)
    I am actually playing Sims 2 right now. Still love it. But it would be nice to be able to play without having to tweak graphic rules, RAM usage, and get CC replacements for some of the particularly out of date clothes and hairs.
    It would also be nice if it was completely ported over to Mac so I don't need a Windows partition. They started that process, but never finished it.

    Complete remaster of Sims looks. Everyone basically looks like a robot as I see when people post pictures, Ability to recognise everything you bought from the Sims Store and download it without fuss as a complete file and to be able to play without mods to run it without crashing. Keep CAS.

    There were parts I liked but not for very long and the last EP 'jumped the shark' as far as I was concerned. I stopped enjoying it much after World Adventures, which I loved and that hasn't an equal on Sims 4 either.

    Thank you to all who have voted so far - The Sims 2 (Graphics Remaster) is most popular so far :)

    I'd like a TS3 remake with a few features taken from other titles.

    TS2:
    • wants and fears
    • turn-ons and turn-offs
    • Open For Business retail system
    • animation details like opening cabinets while cooking

    TS4:
    • art style
    • build/buy and CAS interface
    • multitasking

    @TamakiSakura84 I completely forgot about the Turn Ons and Turn Offs system!

    Loved the Wants and Fears ♥ Had both minor and major things too.

    As in making the game compatible with current computer systems I still play TS2 as is, but it needed a lot of tinkering and help from forum folks to get it running on Windows 10 The older graphics do not deter me at all, especially in many areas - particularly related to buildings and objects they are superior to the vaunted TS4.

    I would love a remake of TS2 with only two changes: open neighborhoods and story progression with a functional toggle for those who don't want it.

    The main reason that TS3 is my favorite game of the series is that it had story progression and an open world full of Sims that were doing their own thing. In TS2, I disliked having to go around to families that I wasn't interested in, making them woohoo to have babies, or aging them up to keep the neighborhood on the same timeline. I have never liked having full rotational gameplay. I prefer to play one extended family along with some of its branches. I'd rather that the rest take care of themselves and surprise me with the outcomes.
