    tldr: there is no baby overhaul, no cars, no farming, and no bunkbeds coming with this upcoming expansion

    Not Surprised about cars as that will most likely come in a Free Update. Atleast Farming has been ruled out so that's one less pack we have to speculate that could be EP 10.

    so i'm hoping for a winter theme or hotel management xD

    If Maxis are throwing around queries about eloping to exotic destinations I wouldn't be surprised if it was a hotel type pack turning up next. One of those winners in their Challenge might have their buildings etc. included in it. I wouldn't mind at all and can think of various destinations that I could put them in. Wedding reception in Batuu bar perhaps?

    This is just a guess but I'd like it!

    Baby overhaul, cars and bunkbeds should all be in a free update and not an expansion pack so I don't think this post rules those out at all. It does rule out farming though.

    I'm really curious why everybody thinks that we get cars for free. To me this seems absurd. Usable cars were in the TS3 base game, but they are no traditional part of the franchise. We had to pay for them in TS2 Nightlife. If cars ever come, they will probably be part of a pack with a car world, like the boats in the boat world Sulani.

    Usable cars were a staple of every series. The carpool was in TS1, 2, and 3. Owning a car is a small offshoot of that since the carpool would cover nearly all the functionality of a personal vehicle. In Sims 2 you could actually download NL driveways and garage doors for free and also officially licensed Ford cars from TS2 website (also free with an account).

    You paid for the option to own the carpool cars and also recolors of them, but you could get fully functional cars without owning that expansion as well. I believe even CC cars were compatible with the base game once NL released. So I do see them as a staple feature. I wouldn’t pay for them because I know they won’t be adding pathing to the existing roadways if they do make cars.

    I hope not. The next GP is about Star Wars (so kind of, Aliens) already.....
    Food for thought. It's been a year since the release of ROM and supernatural players haven't had any luck since. I'm guessing a supernatural pack.

    The star wars pack isn't really aliens... it's a theme park where people wear masks...but as much as I want some actual supernatural stuff again I doubt it will be. Those packs are few and far between.

    Sims 2 company tie-ups. In the UK at the time we got another tie-up with a company. Nissun gave UK players a couple of new cars they were bringing out in the UK that year. You had to be on the UK forum to get them they weren't available elsewhere.

    Is there a comprehensive list of what is missing from the sims 4 compared to Sims 3? I never played sims 2, but thus far it feels like they've always tried to add everything from the previous game in some capacity. Not sure if we can expect that from Sims 4, but it might be interesting for speculation purposes.

    I know some packs won't translate directly because they've been broken down into game packs. Hopefully others can better extrapolate missing stuff and add to the list:

    -Hotels
    -Cars
    -Bands
    -Horses
    -Better Romance options
    -Better Babies
    -Generations EP (More family interactions and stuff for teens/kids/elders)
    -To The Future EP
    -Retro items

    Occults:
    -Werewolves
    -Fairies
    -Imaginary Friends
    -Genies
    -Plumbots

    From this, we know we aren't getting Cars, Babies or anything akin to generations yet (so could probably also scratch off Imaginary Friends). Most occults now are coming in Game Packs, so we could probably scratch those off as well.

    Hotels I could see coming, but maybe bands as well?

    The following are missing
    Photobooths
    Pool Slides
    Pool Waterfalls
    Pool Bars
    Real Diving Boards
    Hammocks From TS2

    Pool tables and lots of group interactions for more than 2 sims... play on playground option, seesaw, slides for kids, hopscotches, just more playground equipment... games to play without objects for kids like tag...

    HERE'S MY BET.

    CASINO/ROMANCE/ELDERS FOR EP10.

    I MEAN. Look at Sims Spark'd. The challenges have been eloping for destination weddings, and we JUST got eloping, perfect for a casino backdrop, added in a patch. ALSO of all the destinations listed in the Spark'd challenge, Casinos are the only location option we DO NOT HAVE YET. ALSO the next Spark'd challenge is Elders/Golden Age, and Casinos have a bit of notoriety in regard to being a big draw for elders. HINT RIGHT IN FRONT OF US?

    I don't know, I just really want it and I think it would be a fantastic blend of features. Casinos, elders, late-life romance. It's great. IT'D BE SO GREAT.

    I'm excited, and it might be as far from this as possible, but in true casino fashion, I want this and I'm going all in.

    Also, I do not want babies, farms, cars, or bunk beds. Wow, I do not want any of those things. If we get them, eh hey, lots of people want them and good for them! But I actively do not care for any of that content.

    I want my gambling, romancing, elders! Please and thank you!

    I was watching my real life grandkids in the playground at school and noticed that nearly all the kids were running, constantly running.
    Kids in Sims 4 seem too grown up somehow. I really wish they would bring back tag, cops and robbers and play catch. Also, the animation for water balloon fights needs tweaking since the sims spend more time standing around than anything else. These were so much more fun to watch in Sims 2.

    Yes the new card table game in Star Wars has a game similar to poker were sims are playing and holding cash. The winner gets everyone's money so casinos in EP 10 wouldn't surprise me.

    Yeah definitely, I saw that too and I'm hoping it's a small precursor to a pack more completely dedicated to gambling/casinos.

    Food for thought. It's been a year since the release of ROM and supernatural players haven't had any luck since. I'm guessing a supernatural pack.
    As much as I'd love that, we had years where we got no supernatural content.

    As always, my hopes are for something that might bring werewolves to the game. I’d love a winter vacation spot too, but I think that would probably be better suited to a GP like OR and JA.

    Tbh I don’t really know what to expect in reality, especially after they pulled the whole Star Wars wild card on us. I just hope it brings Something new and exciting to the game.

    If it's a Music Pack It should be a casino and nightclub lots for sims to own.

    I hope not.
    One of the top 3 themes that are still on my wishlist is in fact a music pack to include bands and musical ensembles. I’d rather see a decent system for musical groups having the ability to organise concerts, than a system where you could own a nightclub. Both would be great, of course, but I don’t see the Sims team doing this. It’s usually one system per theme per pack...

    i'm trying to think out of the box and what the sims team would think sims 4 players want rather than what we've actually been asking for...i feel like them ruling out things in their message means that the expansion pack is going to be something nobody really asked for again but that's the pessimist in me talking lol

    Whoever is speculating about a Casino themed EP... I hope you are right! I posted on my profile a year ago when I got back from Vegas how amazing a pack like that would be. Maybe the Gurus will answer my prayers :open_mouth:

    maybe the star wars pack or something in the new patch bring a hint for the next expansion, because we have nothing to theorize besides rumors and the pink plumbob

    Just seeing this picture gives me an excited feeling in my stomach! Probably be a while before I can go back to Vegas... so if I can't go to Vegas, Vegas must come to me (in Sims format :joy:)

    I get what you're saying, I'm a bit cautious about the coming EP too. But would love to be surprised. Someone in another thread mentioned an Olympics/professional sports-themed EP and I really think we shouldn't write these kinds of unexpected ideas off yet. Maybe even a historical theme... Casino's would also be unexpected. Maybe they've combined the Arcade theme and Wedding theme from the 2017 Stuff Pack vote into one EP.

    I also think it may be a combination of stuff pack vote ideas and themes presented in previous surveys. It happened with EcoLifestyle, Tiny Living and the Off the Grid update. These were all part of votes and surveys, right down to things like the candle making station.
