If we get a snowy destination with a decent amount of new activities , new aspirations and new skills possibly, i would be so excited. And i can honestly say that would be the first sims 4 expansion that would put a smile on my face. Not that im not happy with the other content, but truly, that would be great. So im excited by all the hints :)

    Its also mainly because i dont really fancy jungles (selvadorada) or the middle of nowhere camping thing (granite falls) . The winter destination would be the first getaway that truly suits me !

    So far winter in TS4 is just 1/4 of one single EP (Seasons), so a Winter Themed pack is sorely lacking in my opinion. Personally I'm hoping for Ice Hockey, Snowboarding, Skiing, Ski lifts, Winter Vacation Homes, Snowmobiles, Alpine Rescue Helicopters/Search & Rescue teams with Avalanche rescue dogs and much more!

    Love these ideas! Would be very fun :)

    I think a whole EP centering around winter would be really lacking. So I hope it's vacation resorts, coming with a tropcial beach vacation world AND a wintery mountain world, a hotel/restort system as its new feature and lots of activities surrounding beach vacations and the snow :)

    It doesnt have to be lacking just because its about leisure. Thats my thing with the sims right now, not enough leisure based packs and activities @Dakota88

    I doubt we'll get more then one vacation destination in one pack. Maxis hasn't done it yet.

    Well, you might not have considered them vacation destinations, but they have. With one of those sims 3 EP's we got 3 worlds, an asian one and two others i cant recall right now , in one pack :)

    Yes they have, with TS3 World Aventures (hope that was the correct EP title).

    And in their survey they mentioned a vacation EP coming with a wintery AND a beach vacation world. :)

    Don't get me wrong, I need more leasure activities too, especially group activities for our Sims where they can build relationships while having fun. So I am on your side.

    I want more leasure activities, but all of them following a winter theme would be kind of lacking. I want winter activities AND other activities haha.

    I'm really hoping that will be the next GP. This is probably a niche thing that not many players care about, but I'd love to see them bring back MySims references with it aswell. I love the winter vacation world in MySims agents and its characters so it'd be cute if they made an appearance in a sims pack with the same theme.

    Here's the recreations of them I made in my game, it'd be so cute to have little details like this

    Plus, ski chalets. I need these in the game properly!

    I'm a super hot weather summer girl through and through. I love the way winter looks in the game but after a while I start feeling personally cold if that makes sence 😅😅 and I get desperate for summer to come.

    So this not on my top list however, I would still welcome a pack like this which I'm sure is coming.
    Somethings I want to see is better snow depth! It's a must for a winter pack.
    Sledding, ice hockey uhhh.... actually I'm not familiar with winter activities so I'm up for anything! 😅 the most important thing to me is that we get more group and kid activities. No more single boat kinda stuff.
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    Im not a fan of heat, at all. I can not stand being hot. Its worse than being cold in almost every way :)@Babykittyjade

    That was TS3 though not TS4. That was World Adventures. I meant TS4. I'd love multiple vacation destinations in one expansion pack in TS4 but I don't think Maxis will do it.

    Well we already have a beach world but I"d take another if it added stuff Sulani left out. I'm hoping for that Brazillian Beach or Greek Beach Pack.

    In Sims 1,there was a vacation pack that had a campground destination, a beach destination and a ski resort destination. Sims 1 had LOTS of things to do in its vacation pack.

    Yeah. Grant basically told us before that they wouldn't do it.

    I'd love a real vacation expansion winter themed would be nice with actual hotels. But if they go mountain living and give us a world where you clean trash, they did this twice now I'm not putting it past them, and leave out real activities people actually want like skiing, snowboarding, playing ice hockey and riding snowmobiles I will avoid it. Also can we please get ski lifts it would be fun to watch a couple hold hands riding to the top or friends joking around shaking it bring some life to this game.

    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    I think this kind of pack would be a great fit for this fall. A lot of people will still be stuck at home, and a cosy Winter pack could be comforting and fun for the Holidays. A residential alpine world with a year-round snow area and lush meadows area, more wooden furniture, comfort food, winter sports, lodges and hotels, some fun Bigfoot/Yeti lore, new family interactions... I'd be curious to see the CAS though, because we already got so much oversized knitted stuff this year.

    Now that Lyndsay confirmed that the EP won't have anything to do with farming, I'm hoping for this pack, but I'm also a bit afraid that it will be something out of left field again.

    One advantage with Sims 4 worlds and neighbourhoods over Sims 3 and earlier worlds is that it would be possible to create routed, off lot complex activities larger than a 64x64 lot. Think the Windenberg Maze but on a much larger complex scale, that could be how skiing pistes and lifts could work, molded into the landscape itself. With several pistes each with their own routes and pathing within them.

    To make it work without seasons, it could be easily a perma-winter world in the mountains (like the summit area of Vacation Island), and Seasons adds the gameplay effects for snowfall and snow based activities from Seasons. Think of it like how you can play Island Living without Seasons, but it just adds a little spice to the game if you do.

    I want yetis as a new occult, and not just a costume.

    Honestly, I deeply hope this is the theme for the upcoming Expansion Pack. I absolutely love winter as a season, especially when it comes to The Sims. The addition of Holidays in The Sims 4: Seasons was cool, but my Simmer heart is longing for a winterland amusement park, full of activities for the toddlers and kiss, and family and romantic areas for the adult Sims.

    Also, I think we've waited long enough for a new lifestate. Like, please.
