    I've looked in to most available information for the EPs and I have no interest in playing eco-friendly Sims. :)

    I must edit that I will buy eco but only if all the horrible bugs I hear about are fixed.

    Eh what can I say I must have it all 😅

    I almost decided not to buy DU, but I eventually figured out how I could make it fit my current rotational gameplay. But I'm going to wait for the next generation now, so I won't buy it until those kids are teens. So I guess none of the above fit me because I will buy them all, but not yet.

    EL is not a theme that appeals to me in terms of fun and games and there are a couple of things in it that I really do not want in my game.

    Cats & Dogs
    I said this in the unpopular opinion thread but I love animals too much to watch them die and see all the strays. I know it's just a game but it's too much of a reality for me and just wouldn't enjoy it in my game. Not knocking the pack or anything it's probably a good pack just not for me unfortunately.

    I'm more picky when it comes to stuff packs. My First Pet will never entire my PC unless it's Free.

    @Daephene Feel free to PM me how, or chat on my open DU thread, because I'm still looking for an answer on how to play DU rotationally!

    I already own them all. My least favourite two are Discover University and Eco Lifestyle.

    I own them all but I regret buying Eco Lifestyle. It's literally garbage. I like some of the CAS and BB items, but the game play is terribly boring and buggy.
    My favorites are Cats & Dogs and Island Living.

    I stopped buying them after Get Famous, but if I had to choose I’d say Eco Lifestyle due to all the issues people are having.

    Island Living
    I lack more than one but almost all of them had something that intrigued me at some point except for Island Living.
  • lthshilthshi Posts: 5 New Member
    I own all of them except eco. I was gonna buy it but i feel like there wasn't a lot of interesting gameplay. But sometimes I wanna change my mind because I kinda wanna have my sims live in an apartment

    I own everything except Eco Lifestyle. I am planning on acquiring it though, but just waiting for more bug fixes. The last patch wasn't enough, if I have to believe some comments on here.

    I wasn't interested of the theme to begin with. I don't find playing with garbage interesting. I thought this would be the first expansion pack that I wouldn't buy, but the livestream made me change my mind. I thought the NAPs would be great. I was wrong. I'm not even going to start talking about them, there are so many threads about them and the problems they cause. :#
    Dumpster diving was fun for the first few times, but it got boring pretty quickly.

    My Sims were living off the grid and I bought them dew collectors to be able to sometimes use the shower or toilet, but even five of them wasn't enough. They look awful on the lot and I didn't want more, especially when they broke all the time. My Sims had no time to do anything fun, because they had to fix broken dew collectors and solar panels daily. Wind turbines don't break that often, but I don't like to place too many of them either.

    I don't even know what to do to have fun with Eco Lifestyle. My Sims are miserable all the time and I'm bored.
    On my Eco Lifestyle save my Sims just moved from Port Promise to Grims Quarry and had twins and they're not living off the grid anymore. The husband is permanently grumpy and if he doesn't recycle something all the time he steals his own things and recycles them autonomously. I can't wait when he starts recycling his childrens' stuff & things. :unamused:
    If I didn't like my EL Sims as much as I do I would've deleted the save already. In fact I would've already disabled EL if I didn't like CAS & BB items so much

    I put None I own them all, because I do. But if I could go back in time I would not buy Discover University. It's the only one I don't really enjoy

    I own them all. I'm a bit disapointed with Eco Lifestyle though...

    I did get some stuff that i like in this ep, but the main features, and those i was most excited about, came out to be not what i was expecting.

    I wish that naps were related to the community spaces. If we voted in a nap that community space would change to something related to it. Im not happy with it overriding npc's behaviour. I'ld also prefer that a nap would spawn some objects related to it in the neighbourhood. For example, with a nap related to art, some easels and other art stuff would spawn in the neighbourhood. That would make the npcs use more this kind of objects as they autonomously use the grill, the children playgrounds...

    And the eco footprint was disapointing too. I was expecting the industrial one to spawn garbage in all worlds. It would make an interesting change of scenery... It is also very hard to change. But not hard in a challenging way. Having to go out of my household to change the neighbour's houses feels more like a chore...

    Actually I've been waiting for a pack with a more "run down" CAS, but EL has bugs (called N.A.P.) that ruin the behavior of the Sims in game. So I won't buy it. (Why can't we just have a Store where we can buy certain CAS or B/B objects from a pack?)
    TeamFARMING! Please EA, we need a FARMING expansion for TS4!

    List of my TS4 games:
    EPs: GTW, GT, CL, C&D, S, GF, IL, DU
    GPs: OR, SD, DO, V, P, JA, RoM
    SPs: LP, CK, SS, RG, KR, B, VG, BN, T, LD, M, TL

    I will not buy whatever that it is, that they DON'T make . Everything else that they do make for The Sims games, from here on forward, i WILL buy! I own every pack for Sims 4 and always will.

    NAPs are a hot mess that were likely designed to be this way, so there will be no fix for them. I don't like the world or any of the premades, the gameplay this pack offers bores me, my old laptop has started to lag with too many packs and cc installed (I own everything but Eco Lifestyle and some stuff packs) and I am saving what little space it still has for something I'd actually enjoy, and so on. I like CAS and build/buy, but they don't overweight the negative aspects for me.

    I will not buy anything I do not think is worth supporting and that pack is one of those things.

    Get Famous
    Get Famous is the only EP I don't own. Fame and fortune just doesn't interest me, neither in The Sims nor IRL. Sometimes I buy a pack even if I'm not interested in the gameplay, if it has a pretty world or good CAS/BB (I bought Realm of Magic because of beautiful Glimmerbrook, but I have never played with any of the magic stuff) but there is just nothing compelling me to buy this one.
