    [*] Bigger worlds, I need more lots per world, this trend of giving us 5-7 lots per world with tons of unusable space around the lots has got to stop! While I don't need to have 100 lots per world, about 30 would be sufficient for me. Stop Restricting Us!
    [*]
    [*] Traits that actually make sims behave different from each other, I personally do not like the emotions, I think they're too over powering. I also would like to get rid of the happy, smiling, default sims (unless your sim has the "Perpetually Happy" trait, or something like that). I don't know anybody in RL who wears a smile 24/7.

    Yes in TS2 you had a huge land and you set down the land plots. 64x64 or 12x16 etc. And you decide if its a community lot or residential. Want something like that back.

    I think the whole emotion system needs to be scrapped and go back to a personality point/trait hybrid system, accompanied by an attraction system. Their personality HAS to make a difference in the gameplay. I want each sim to act and think differently.

    What I'd like to see with regards to land is the ability to take two lots and join them...much like "land-assembly" in real life (when developers turn around and buy up several lots beside each other and build them into one huge development (like a condo complex or a townhouse development - yeah, I used to be in real estate)...and make it into one friggin' humungous lot where you can build a ginormous house...once your sims get stinkin' rich.

    Oh that'd be cool.

    Graphics wise I hope it'll have the same system as 4, just with more detailed textures. For example the grass in Sims 4 is literally a green blob

    Whilst in 5 I'd like to see grass look more like this mod

    For sims aswell I'd like to see a similar system and style, just with more realistic textures similar to these cc skins

    Liked this article that talked about Sims 5 lore possiblities:

    https://gamerant.com/sims-5-lore-problem-sims-4-townies-generations/

    What ideas do you guys have for any Sims 5 lore?

    Id like them to do a sequel to Sims 2 lore. The Sims 3 is a prequel, and the Sims 4 is a reboot/alternate timeline. Id like them to include new families too. And the story album with pictures and descriptions (neighborhood screen) again. I like how in TS2 the family album photos had no descriptions so you could speculate whats going on in the photo.

    I have an idea for a Sims 5 expansion.
    I like how TS3:ITF gave us a dystopian, neutral, utopian world. I like the time travel aspect. I also liked the Sims Medieval. Id like our sims to be able to be living in an alternate reality Western world(not 100%accurate)

    Upon downloading the expansion it comes with a new world. It's western themed, but far back in sim past. The Landgrabbs own a lot of property and the oil. The Goths are renowned "old money" family. There are new careers or parttime work: sheriff, lapidaries,quarrymen, blacksmiths, cowboys etc. Your sim can go to the outskirts of town to mine for gold.

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQCRtEcFzqXpo6Q5heJ8TVkKOhTAQwNKLDVNQ&usqp=CAU

    There are new skills and activities , like churning butter,making soap,cutting wood, and other chores. There are no cell phones or digital world. You can write letters to friends or family however, and take a horsedrawn cart or stationwagon to their ranch/property to visit them.

    Your sims can own and manage hotels and saloons. Be careful of any robbers or shootouts!

    More images/concept art to fit the theme:

    Love the western theme @StrawberryYogurt. Reminds me of Red Dead Redemption. My third favorite game after Sims 4 and Planet Zoo. Have you played it?
    Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. 😊

    I haven't played it but seen some clips. I love the western theme! It's just too graphic for me. But I like reading western books (Little House On the Prairie, anyone?) and watching movies/podcasts. I especially like reading about the Oregon Trail.

    reminds me of Sunset Canyon on the sims 2 for console. it was a lot including a movie set inspired on the western style, it was quite simple but there was a saloon and some other buildings if i remember correctly. i'd love to see the western style back on the sims, especially if it's presented like the idea you gave, i love it soo much

    The Anthem reboot has now been officially cancelled, so there are a couple of dozen people in EA looking for their next project.

    Edit: I forgot that was the Bioware branch of the company. Brain freeze on my part.

    I havent play that but watched some videos of the Sims 2 w/ Sunset Canyon. I liked the theme there too!

    A redditor remade it and some other Strangetown neighborhoods from across the series:

    It would be beautiful if EA officially did something like this^
