Cliffside lots
Enjoy an amazing view of the sea at sloped terrain lots right at the cliffs. Build awesome cliffside balcony houses!

House boats
Sail around the coast with your own personal house boat! Live directly off the sea by catching fish. But don‘t get swallowed by the Kraken!

Hotel resorts
Manage your own hotel resort complex.
You can fix up an old abandoned hotel, buy an existing resort or build a new one.

Scuba diving in the Mediterranean Sea
Find amazing places directly under the Mediterranean sea, such as ship wrecks, coral reefs and sunken ruins. Beware of sharks! You can actually SEE & control your Sims while scuba diving. Also find new types of fish that you can put in a huge aquarium.

    No offense but pottery, houseboats, and an Greece style world already have been suggested. Just letting you know.

    Wouldn't be against it if pack did something new like added hotels and maybe possibility of living on stuff like yachts.

    I have just been thinking that they haven't fully done coastal style. I'd be interested in the Greek theme. Another that they haven't actually done is the type of coastal in the American southeast. They did a New England theme and a more Hawaiian/Polynesian theme but they have not done the style of coastal found in the warmer American southeast such as in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Bermuda and other areas with coastlines. It is a popular contemporary style:

    While they have done some American styles, that one has not really been added. It is not really like New England especially with the wider white beams, the warmer colors and the different type of nautical/beach style. I could see that as a kit at least or possibly with a different beach. Along with that, we have not seen Caribbean style.

    That‘s why I think combining them into an EP sounds like a great idea! A nice Greek blue & white cliffside coastal world with new crafting hobbies and houseboats is awesome!

    We can have goat in that expansion? I mean, goat is part of the mediterranean/greek culture

    Yes that would be possible! Especially since we already have the groundwork for animals in Cottage Living, so adding goats wouldn‘t be so hard!

    Well, I would like to have a world based off of Greece, with pottery and houseboats, but I don't like the crafting options because that would be too hard (no offense) except for the pottery wheel. The pottery wheel seems cool.

    Pottery wheel also fits Greek culture since ancient Romans used to do pottery on a pottery wheel

    Sculpting is another thing ancient Romans did so it would fit to Greek culture. Especially sculpting and immortalizing Sims.

    I hope we could get actual diving in this pack, where we can explore places below the sea like in Sims 3

    Wow, some of those pictures reminded me of the movie "Momma Mia".

    Don't forget including gondola boats, since in Greece you can ride the gondola boats, eat pasta and pizza at a restaurant, and get your sims' portrait done by Sim artists, visit coliseums like the ones from Rome? I have seen a Greece like world mentioned in the Sims 4 thread by someone in the "The Sims" forum.

    You may be thinking about Italy, which would also be an awesome idea

    Thanks. I totally thought Greece was like that too. I think I got the two confused.

    I really like you suggestion. I would love a world based on the pictures you’ve shared.
    Thank you 😊🎉

    Personally, I would love an Ancient Greece with Mythology Immortals, Creatures, Hercules & Xena. :p;)

    Maybe we could get a centaur occult or werewolf?

    I would a Greek themed world, but dedicating a whole expansion pack to beach/coastal lifestyle would cause major backlash since we already have Island Living (which had its own issues).
  • DianesimsDianesims Posts: 2,434 Member
    I like the idea of a greek world, but we already have coastal worlds with Brindleton Bay and Island living. That and Island Living is lacking, so I'd feel ripped off if I had to buy another EP to get real scuba diving.

    if they come up with a mediterranean theme pack it would be nice to plant and olive and make our own olive oil also wine making could be nice to have back.

    I love the idea of a Greece inspired world. It would be so lovely to have the blue and white buildings with the pink flowers. I'd especially love to see it terraced like that. They really do need to give us an underwater world that allows us to follow our sims when they scuba dive. I hate that diving is a rabbit hole in Island Living. Like seriously? They couldn't have made the underwater area its own neighborhood? If they do eventually give us the ability to follow sims underwater then they need to patch Island Living to make it possible there as well. Houseboats are definitely something I'd like to see come back. This is silly, but the news foods they would add make me happy as well. You can't have a Greek pack without baklava, gyros, dolmadakia, halva, spanikopita, and lamb souvlaki. I used to go to the Greek food festival in my town, and it is *chef's kiss*. Maybe this pack could also be the return of nectar making? I dunno. There is so much I still want from this game, and I'll admit that I feel like they wasted a lot of time and resources on that stupid Star Wars crap.

    I've been wanting worlds modeled after Greece and Morocco for a long time now. We got the Moroccan kit, which is beautiful, but I want the world too. It doesn't really fit in with what we have right now.

    I really want cliffside terrain lots like the beach lots in Sulani, but without the water.

    I hope the world looks like this with a cliffside village

    I also hope we‘ll get sculpting back. I want to be able to immortalize Sims in stone as a statue like in Sims 3.

    Hammocks would fit into this pack theme as well! I want hammocks from Sims 2 to return!

    We just got hammocks in Sims Mobile, I‘d like to have hammocks in Sims 4 as well!
