    My thoughts are that we will def have sims 5. And they are aware we want more creative tools. Now let's wait and see if they also know that we want a single player game. If sims 5 is made as a single player game from the beginning and they listen to the community it can be a super game...

    It does sound like it will have some part of online component, which we have suspected earlier. I wish the interviewer could have have asked Laura about single player as well.

    From what they said, I would guess that they are looking at games where people can build together, like Valheim and Minecraft and are thinking about how they could bring that to the sims.

    My guess, they are looking to create shared spaces where people can build and take their sims together, hopefully in a separate environment apart from the normal single player game.

    Laura Miele have said in a previous interview that they are going to let their studios have more creative control so hopefully Maxis will do something for people that want to play single player as well.

    Interesting.

    I think 20 years later we learned a lot about how players interact, what motivates players, how players can come together co-operatively and so as you imagine as we think about the next generation of The Sims it’s SUPER important for us to have the best tools, the most flexibility and for players to really expand on their creativity, remix items and objects in the world. And then to do that together – I think that’s one of our biggest opportunities with The Sims is the social connection component that we need to bring to this brand and this franchise. The team is hard at work on the next generation of that experience.
    Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. 😊

    I honestly don't know what to tell you.

    If the "online" they are talking about is a gallery to share screenshots/videos/stories of our play sessions in The Sims besides the lots and sims themselves, I think that'd be interesting. But if their idea of "online" is to do what they wanted to achieve with TS4, before they had to back track, then not in a million years. I really don't want to be able to control 1 household per save and instead of NPC's it's other people playing around like in Second Life, to ❤️❤️❤️❤️ with that. Definitely don't want a SimsxROBLOX, what a joke, this interviewer doesn't even know or understand what The Sims is.

    All I've heard about TS5 thus far is full of major red flags not going to lie.

    Yeah I just saw that today too. To me it sounds pretty much like they want to be Second Life's little sister, at least for the "online component" with the whole build together, play with life together, socializing, and a possible Marketplace where creators can share their stuff.

    In Second Life there is "game money", and land costs so much "game money" each week to "rent the land" and you either get the "game money" by working jobs in Second Life or you buy the "game money" with RL currency. The Marketplace also requires people to "buy" things with "game money" that creators have made for the game.

    And Linden Labs, the owner of Second Life, gets a percentage of all sales on the Marketplace, so it's a win/win for them to have people create.

    I'll pass, if I want to play a Second Life type virtual world, I'll just play Second Life, since it's actually geared towards adults and not pre-teens.

    It looks like the game is going in a direction that's not for me so I will stick with Sims 4 and if that comes to an end I'll check out some of those mods and CC that I've been avoiding so far. I'll leave 5 to those who are going to like it.

    Do simmers really want to play together "cooperatively"?
    I'd rather play by myself, and I think a lot of Sims players would agree. I don't care about "social connections" with other players. If I want to connect with other players, I'll jump on the forums or find an online community to chat with, not in-game.
    It's kind of depressing that they're comparing this game to Robloxand and Fortnite. YUCK.

    This doesn't look good for the Sims 5. Laura Miele seems to talk a lot about the Sims Online (despite what a failure it was) and other online games affectionally. And Online is definitely where this game is going, no doubt about it.

    I think an optional online feature or separate online version of the game would be cool, but like everyone else I don't want the sims to turn into IMVU.

    Lmbo roblox😵😵 I like roblox actually but it's NOTHING like the sims and I wouldn't want a sims game similar to that😶
    plus the games they mentioned are aimed at kids multiplayer..... I don't know... maybe they will turn this into something totally amazing and surprise me. But I kinda feel like they are putting this info out there little by little to get people prepared for the inevitable lol.

    Though she mentioned Sims Online, I’d honestly rather have a Sims 3 Fame interaction were you just sent your sim to visit other players instead of a virtual gathering area with you controlling your sim like an mmo avatar if wanting to meet other players.

    I mean it may sound anti-social, but when dealing and socializing with people in RL everyday I play the Sims or other games to relax from all that socializing.

    The line where she says the team is hard at work on the next generation of that experience just makes me cringe. I like you all but not that much. And never will. :D

    Cooperative building and world creation tools would be cool, if they also had a single player option. I wouldn't mind if they had an optional hang out tool where your sims could interact as long as it was by invitation only. I'd actually rather a chat option so if my granddaughter and I were playing at the same time we could chat about our games and show each other what we're doing without having to stop playing individually and go to the interactive area. Because she's twelve and doesn't play the game the same way I do. But again, friends only. There might be some people on these forums who I wouldn't mind interacting with in game but I have zero interest at all in having strangers in my sims space.
    And it would still need a robust single player option to be worth the money. That's the part I'd use the most, so if that's not where the devs concentrate their attention it will never be as much fun as previous games.

    I don't know how they're going to keep the "safe place" motto and it being online... did you see how people behave in the spark'd contest? Not adhering to rules and making of it a big mess...?

    No question but that if it goes online it'll have to upgrade the Pegi age to 18 plus, otherwise it might get a lot of the problems we had a few years ago.

    I don't know how they can accomplish all that when we see the filters on the Gallery don't even work right most of the time and don't even have proper filters to sort out size of lots, rooms and or types of Sims etc. I doubt Maxis can meet any of the requirements to make this a smooth experience for anyone. Their track record (even more recently) is flawed and makes me think they can't meet even the simplest of tasks when it comes to online mechanics.
