    Happy for the Space fans and I am sure I will eventually grab it for items etc.

    I have never had any interest in Star Wars so I'm definitely not buying it.

    It’s weird. I mean nobody asked for it, and it won’t bring much needed gameplay. Give me cars. Give me real personality. Give us stuff we actually asked for.

    I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and if it were a standalone game, I'd probably buy it. But i'm not interested in mixing an entire GP based on it into the Sims game. A few CAS for costumes and objects for Easter Eggs, sure, but not a whole GP. Definitely not buying, even on sale.
    It's kind of sad that I have to point out that anything I say is only just my opinion and may be a different one from someone else.

    Honestly this game pack makes me so happy!

    I'm not some huge fan of Star Wars, but I'll take whatever unrealistic gameplay I can get at this point.

    My only concern is that it appears our sims won't be able to live on Batuu, but will instead be like a vacation world. I really hope this isn't the case, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Like Star Wars on it's own. The Sims has nothing to do with this and never should. My issue with this is EA.. ignoring, delivering unasked content while so much is missing, ruining The Sims franchise loved by many and then acting like they listen and care.. Please.

    Of all the things they could have added to the sims franchise they have to go and choose the worst option , Star wars lost my interest years ago and EA decide now when star wars is pretty much finished as a film franchise to bring something like this , They could have done so much more with vacations , music groups , proper dates . They did a survey a while back and seemingly have ignored what people wanted to try and milk their Star wars cash cow franchise , No longer do they care what people want , At least it will save me the cost of buying it

    I think that some of the gameplay could be interesting and it’s something we haven’t really had before in the series, but I haven’t seen anyone ask for it and many of the more requested packs (farming, generations, supernatural) haven’t been mentioned.

    However, I’m still happy for all the people who will enjoy this pack!

    Not what I want added to my game, nothing in it is even slightly appealing to me.

    If this would’ve have strictly Space-Themed I would’ve been all over this, but I don’t want Star Wars in my sims games.

    I have bought every EP, GP, SP, and Store Content from TS1, TS2, TS3, and TS4 until now... definitely skipping this one.

    No thanks! I like the Star Wars movies but if I wanted to play a Star Wars game, I'd play a Star Wars game, NOT The Sims. Happy for those that are excited though.

    I prefer fantasy content, and am hoping we get Werewolves soon, but I like sci-fi and this looks fun to me. I'm not deep into the Star Wars fandom but I do like it and I'll have fun taking my Sixam aliens to Batuu <3

    Really not interested in adding this content into my game. I’m happy for those that will enjoy this type gameplay though. I thought I was a collector until this pack showed up. I just can’t rationalize spending money on a game of which I won’t utilize any assets from. I’m a little disappointed, but hopefully they are working on more realistic or family gameplay for an upcoming pack. Always happy to buy that type of content!

    I remember trailer for eco living was rather weak, so i hope when we will get more info i will get hypec because right now i feel kinda whatever about this

    Also sorta worried that it might only be a vacation-type world like @PlanetSixam said, or have more limited / one-time gameplay.

    I don't really care about Star Wars at all. And on the list of potential game packs I wanted space was very low on the list. (And no I am not just being bitter we still don't have Werewolves or Fairies yet...)

    Looks like another story driven pack that should have been released near the end of The Sims 4. I will pass.
  • alanmichael1alanmichael1 Posts: 4,606 Member

    It really depends on the pack delivering interesting non-linear gameplay. If it's just a recolored Jungle Adventure, then it's a disappointment.

    Okay / Not really bothered
    If I could have selected both "Ok, not really bothered" and "will buy in a sale" I would have. The content doesn't interest me a whole lot, I am a Star Wars fan but not to the level that I'd want to play it out in my Sims world. However, I could see having my Curious brothers get involved in this because it would be totally their thing. I need to see more to decide for sure. Is it just a destination world? Are there new types of aliens, or is it all just costumes on regular sims?

    I don't know, my feelings are very mixed at the moment. The pack kind of seems like a huge advertisement for the Star Wars franchise, and for Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland & Disney World. Cool in many ways, but there are also other things I would have been much more excited for. I think I'm just going to have to sit and think on the idea of this pack for a while.

    Well, I'm a huge Star Wars nerd so of course I'm excited. I'm also glad to have a city completely different from a realistic one.
    But of course I can understand how this pack can't please everyone. If a pack entirely about a movie or a tv show I'm not interested in were to come out, I would be disappointed too.
    Hope this pack will deliver some good cas or build mode to reconcile everyone.

    Will buy it i'm excited. I knew it was a star wars pack. Batuu

    The next pack they create better be the greatest pack in the history of The Sims... exceeding ALL expectations of anything we've ever seen before! It better be the biggest pack ever! Because if they seriously wanna put out garbage like THIS, then they best be prepared to experience backlash!

    And no, I don't feel bad for any backlash they're currently getting and will continue to receive... they deserve it! It's obvious they STILL haven't learned their lesson from past experiences... they should know better by now about NOT releasing garbage packs, but they aren't getting the hint, apparently. This is like the 3rd or 4th time they've experienced major backlash for releasing a pointless pack... when will they learn!?
