Community Voted Stuff Pack 3: What simmers want, and when?

    I just wish my Sims could rock masks. Maybe the need for them won't last long enough to make that a feature of the game, but some Asian players have noted that that is part of life in large cities in various countries there, and the inclusion of masks as a wardrobe option, maybe with a toggle switch to have all Sims wear them, would address that.

    But most of all, I could wish the franchise would keep up with, say, Call of Duty which is making it possible to now play a Nonbinary character, including they/them pronouns.

    I'd rather they not do another community stuff pack, to be honest - they'll never be able to do everything people want as a stuff pack (ie people voting thinking we were getting arts and crafts and then just getting knitting) and quite a few people are going to feel unheard because they won't be happy with what we end up with (though they did handle this better in the second community vote vs. the first one by having us vote on both theme and feature at the same time). If they're going to do a stuff pack, I'd rather they just choose something (that said, I'd love if it had something to do with danger or graveyards).

    I would love another CVSP - I would go for Happy Haunts this time. I would love to see the Ghosthunter career back from TS3. Although not really related, I would also love to see pottery and sewing come back to the game along with canning and jam making.
    I am MinicartTSR over at YouTube.

    Happy Simming! :)

    I have psoriasis and lymphoedemia and I do not want that represented in my game.

    Well I have bills to pay, but I can't get away from bills in the game :(

    I would love a sports themed option. I'm glad that we sort of got soccer in university but I want soccer leagues for Kids/teens/adults. Or maybe some baseball, field hockey, something. I want my sims to be able to go to the large fields in the worlds and play a sport together.

    Stuff packs don't tend to have a whole lot of stuff, if going with a home theme maybe instead of beginner home the community could pick a room or space to get more items for such as a kitchen pack or backyard playground stuff

    If that were not an option, I would say wedding themed. I would really like to get some veils. They could add something like creating bouquets and center pieces and/or cake decorating.

    Happy Haunts is one of the more popular themes that I am less interested in. For that reason I would want this to be a game pack in the hopes that it would add things I am interested in such as a new world. Someone mentioned Scottish Highlands in one of the threads I read. Or castles and castle build items. I would want more than ghost and cemetery lot types.

    Expansion pack: Farming expansion with huge lots for large farms.

    Game Pack: Country living (I hear it might be on the way)

    Stuff pack: Teen Stuff. A stuff pack of Medieval Stuff would also be nice.

    Dangerous & self care from your options. Royalty and babies are the other ones I would like!

    I can only imagine how obnoxiously conventional a Nursery pack formed by popular vote would be... (and people thought Nifty Knitting was boring...)

    Most of those have been done in one pack or another. Like the Starter Home is basically the Tiny Living Pack.

    With all the stuff you can do in Snowy Escape, you could say they're narrowing down the Dangerous Stuff to do.
    Just because I bought most of the Packs at full price doesn't mean I don't know when I'm being ripped off, especially now that I can't buy Bundles.

    I like the two community voted stuff pakcs very much. It seems like they have deeper gameplay compared to other SPs. So I am totally in for round three.
    List of my TS4 games:
    EPs: GTW, GT, CL, C&D, S, GF, IL, DU, EL, SE, CoL
    GPs: OR, SD, DO, V, P, JA, RoM, DHD
    SPs: LP, CK, SS, RG, KR, B, VG, BN, F, T, LD, M, TL, NK
    Kits: /

    Here comes our Happy Haunts pack, whether Game or Stuff. Let's go Super-Goth, people!

    I Wanted a Sports Themed Pack which includes tennis, golf & more

    Can we all agree that we don't want any more 4-5 lot worlds? Give us plenty of lots in each world. Why so stingy with the lots?

    I love the happy haunts, dangerous stuff, and weddings, but I want EPs. I want Happy Haunts and dangerous to be combined with Afterlife, wills, Grim, goth, funerals, ect. and I want weddings to include more dresses, rings, wedding planner career, casino honeymoon destination, cruise ship destination, ect.

    in light of of covid, maybe a work from home stuff pack would be fun. the government could declare a state of emergency on one week in the summer (flu season). we could have:

    1. foldable tables so that sims can work on the couch with their laptop
    2. online university classes that they have to take from the laptop
    3. have to stay indoors for long periods of time, else they get scared (of getting sick)
    4. tense moodlets if they stay indoors for too too long
    5. bored moodlets if they watch too much tv
    6. social distancing interactions (and get bad reputations if they dont social distance) (slob and lazy sims could frequently forget, and proper and good sims will get embarrassed if they see other people not social distance)

    idk. think it would be fun hehe

    Timing. It's all about timing.

    Put a pin in that. Pitch it again 3-6 months after the vaccine has been thoroughly distributed and COVID fatigue has started to lift. (The other time such a pack would have worked is early on Somewhere in roughly August of last year before the Fatigue set in.)

    No way. I don't even want masks in the game. I play to get away from real life, not mimic it.

    I would think paranormal would fall under happy haunts.=)
    For me, I always wanted super heroes and super villains or theme park pack

    Hey guys!! I just purchased one of the kits & it got me thinking how cool it would be if they could take maybe certain other things and apply it to the same concept....I was a huge (HUGE) fan of The Sims Superstar expansion pack, I love get famous but it's just missing things from Superstar I would of loved to see...I loved you were able to pick between singer, model, or actor and actually participate in those careers (photo shoots, studio recording, music video, ect) since we now have kits & packs how cool would it be if they released sort of an extension of Get famous were you could purchase & download these "additional" careers, also an option to be involved in all 3 fields at the same time would be pretty cool.

    Looking at the pattern of the CVSP, I'm wondering if another one might be in the works this year, with a possible release for some time next year? I wasn't here for Laundry Day (didn't play Sims yet) so I ended up having to look that up, but it's quite interesting what I found.

    Laundry Day was voting started April 3rd of 2017 and was released January 16 of 2018
    Nifty Knitting voting started November 13th of 2019 and was released July 28th of 2020

    If there's another vote (which I'm unsure of my feelings about honestly) I have a feeling it will be at some point this year. So maybe now would be a good time to discuss it?

    These both are amazing ideas, but I think a Heroes & Villains pack is better reserved for a Game Pack. That is my absolute dream pack, so I reaalllly want it to be done well. Although, Stuff Packs have been getting better. So maybe if it's like a mini gamepack like Paranormal, it won't be so bad?

    I agree now is a terrible time to pitch a pack like this, but I'm not sure if there ever will be a more appropriate time given the effect COVID has had on the world. Especially with number three. That just feels like a little too close to home/reality.


    And since it seems we got our Ghost Hunter gameplay with Paranormal, I suppose Happy Haunts could be taken off the list? Or at least we could just focus the discussion on a different aspect of it?

    Also since kits are a thing now, maybe we should re think what ideas work best as a kit, and would suit a stuff pack (as they are now) more?
  • Violet777Violet777 Posts: 94 Member
    Maybe a chicken coop as a kit, like we had in TS3? Just a little coop with chickens laying eggs including a gold one every so often. That, I think would be small enough for a kit?

    Happy Simming! :)
