Why Does A Sims Mobile Game Look So Much Better Then Sims 4?

Why does Sims Freeplay look so packed with content and fun content then Sims 4? It makes me want to play the mobile game but I hate that its in real time.

    well its way older I think it might be around 14 years old
    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    Different developers, different producers and different game designer, and maybe higher budget? I dont know because they havent complain about something is too expensive to make.

    I couldn’t deal with the graphics in the Sims free play. They are really ugly even for a mobile game. I did try the other Sims mobile game but that’s like the Sims 4 only it has way worse gameplay and lots of micro transactions.

    No idea, I think both The Sims Freeplay and The Sims Mobile look okay, they even got bunk beds which look exactly like something that should have belonged in Tiny Living...

    But from what I have played from the the sims mobile the animations are much more simplified, I remember selecting my sims in the the sims mobile to watch tv and they sat down in the sofa and stared at a turned off tv.

    So I don't know if they maybe save some money on that, but I think the answer is probably because there are different people that are making content for that game.

    Tbh I think its just money. Everything costs in mobile games, the nicer they make things look the more likely people are to buy the hundreds of micro transactions. Pretty sure the game makes a lot of money from that, really hope S5 doesn't follow the same theme but that's another conversation.

    Agree on the real time thing, that's the one feature that stopped me playing. It's too slow, I don't wanna wait five irl minutes for my sim to shower

    Though none of the mobile games (including the sims) ever interest me, i think the closest sims game to a pc version on mobile was The Sims 3 Mobile, no microtransaction, using object does not require energy etc.

    Because it is based off of the Sims 3 while Sims Mobile is based off of the Sims 4. It does have my favorite babies in the franchise and the preteens are cute.

    Honestly I think if sims mobile wasn't in real time and didn't have the microtransactions it would be the better game compared to ts4.

    Yeah, I wish the game was just 20.00 dollars upfront, with updates, and side quest.With no real time .

    They have more stuff because players buy and buy. They make new content that costs $100 and players buy it and then crave more. It becomes an addiction for some I know too well.

    Put together, the microtransactions and ads make the company more than you would think. The Sims 4 has neither microtransactions nor ads. And since the Sims 4 is not an online-hosted game, advertisers don't have a lot of incentive to advertise on the platform anyway, since they have no way of measuring their market impact (otherwise known as "eyeballs").

    Also, the Sims Freeplay has been out for several years longer than the Sims 4. As a result, it has accumulated more content over the years. Also, Freeplay is closer to Sims 3 in its interface. Sims Mobile is closer to Sims 4 in its interface. I did not see a lot more content in Sims Mobile than Sims 4 last time I played. The Sims 3 also, if you remember, has micro-transactions in the form of the Sims 3 store online. Those also helped fund the development of the Sims 3 game.

    If they do any advertising in the Sims 5, I hope it is ONLY player-optional ads. For instance, ads shown on the Sims TV sets, billboards around town (which everyone expects to be advertising anyway), branded content, or "click here to watch an ad and get a reward". I absolutely HATE it when ads are intrusive and Pop up in my face when I didn't ask for them. Mobile games that use that method I quickly stop playing.

    From where i'm standing FP is a atrocity. They have the ugliest sims ever. Why is it even still a thing btw? They have TS Mobile that's miles better. Ughh.
