What is your least favorite/worst expansion pack?
If you can give a reason, why? What things do you wish to add on that pack? What can they change/add to that pack, if possible?
What is your least favorite/worst expansion pack? 291 votes
To answer your other question, I actually don’t think any addition/change is needed for the pack’s gameplay and/or CAS material. It’s just that it turned out not to be to my tastes, and I don’t expect my tastes to be catered to all of the time. It’s not just about what I want and that’s totally fine!
Because I can't; I keep all sigs turned off.
Maybe I just haven't played it enough but for me it didn't seem that great. Things just don't seem to function well, like the dorms are a mess and not that enjoyable to play in. The camera bounces all over the place while following my sims around on the Foxbury campus and don't even get me started on the bikes, sims ride them indoors? Please no, just don't do that.
As for the gameplay it seemed to be all work and no fun, I had to download a mod to cut homework time down by 50% just so my sim could have a social life outside of studying.
However saying this I do plan on playing it some more in the near future and I'm hopeful that my opinion might change, will just have to see.
I never liked the mash-up of playable careers and aliens in GTW. I think aliens would have been better off in their own pack and GTW could have had more playable careers or a better additional world to have been better. Magnolia Promenade is really too small to be functional.
This is unpopular but ROM is also not really to my taste but it isn't a dealbreaker. I know it is a style appreciated by many people.
No pet skills, no info panels, limited personality, no control (neither did 1 and 2, but I still loved and preferred them more so I could have been happy without this), kids cannot bathe, kids cannot walk, cats don't have tricks, cats don't get bathes (and quite frankly they do occasionally need them IRL), no dedicated pet slots, no pet jobs, no small pets in pack and very few added in other places, pet illness cannot be turned off or treated at home with medicine, veterinary bugs (I have gone so many times to get my pet treated and it glitches out and I have to retry multiple times), etc.
Also, it was so insignificant to their actions that I genuinely believed pets had no relationships with each other until someone told me there were files for it. I believe (s)he was a modder.
In comparison, Sims 3 Pets was all I ever wanted and brought me back to Sims 3 when I had given that series up (way too early and easily just because of the differences from 2 and the art style, but that mistake was corrected). So yeah, I could have never understood my disappointment until I got it. It more or less echoed 4's launch and hit harder. Looks great with underwhelming gameplay and no updates to the core you want addressed. (This has been changing for the BG, but since when have the old packs gotten a facelift in 4?)
Sea may rise, sky may fall, My love will never die..
My heart, my heart, My drowning heart, Oh all the tears I've cried
Oh I may weep forevermore, My love will never die..
I recently had fun going back to Eco Lifestyle and combining it with other packs and mods and I hope the same will happen with snowy escape but right now, it's my least liked EP.
EP11 Cottage Living seems to add a gameplay for the sims, it's not exclusively focused on the animals.

Same! I don't get all the hype about this pack. If it came with a world, I might consider it, but as it stands I'm not interested in most of the features.
in Sims 3 but that was about it. Probably, "Oo, sims pack, get it!"
For cats and dogs I also don't use the game, but the world is very nice, which can't be said about del Sol Valley (personal opinion, of course).
For all the other packs I have used some of the gameplay, the careers or the festivals.
If ever I was dissapointed with a pack cats and dogs is it. For all of these reasons. Pets really shined in ts3. Now I really want to love them so bad because I love pets but I can't.
Plus I always have to get rid of them because I love big families but they take of slots and we can't control them. My dog spends all of his time outside getting sprayed by skunks or foaming at the mouth or begging to 💩 24/7. Most disapointing pack ever (for me) thinking of this makes me miss my ts3 pets rn😖😖
The town is small, and there are too many tiny lots.
It’s hard to play rotationally with it.
I haven’t really figured out the best way to do things when you play multiple sims at the same time, even in the same household. The grading system totally flummoxes me. Part of the fun is following your sim to the university. But if you are playing a household of sims that go to both schools, and they have classes at the same time, it is hard to follow them.
It is so boring to me, I think the only thing much worth it out of the pack to me is that there are additional careers snd a robotics station. Is there anything useful about research and debate if you don’t attend university?
I loved the University pack in TS 2.
I agree about everything being locked to the world. Now that that have terrain tools, you would think we could at least make hills children could sled down in the winter, in any world. And, a placeable skii area would have been nice too. And they could have followed TS 2 on the placeable snow boarding unit. With season many worlds get a lot of snow during the winter and placeable snow activities would have been great.
Also, as for what they could add that would make my day, is a bird. In Sims3, we had several large variety birds (and no, Ostridge and emu were not options) but they had large cages for them. My singer Sim, Erik Cantrell, had such a bird. It was easier for him to care for with what little time he had to himself due to his career. Plus, I'm a huge bird-lover, myself. I'm saddened that we didn't even get them in My Fist Pet, which is another reason I didn't make that purchase.
I love University, but not this version of it. This would probably be my second choice just for disappointments.
The secret society feels like a cult to me. I don't want my sim to be a slave to sprites. No fraternity/sorority game play. School work is a grind.
No stoves and having dormies pile up ridiculous amounts of food is an odd choice. And because the magic cauldron is considered a stove, I can't have a decent magic chamber in my custom dorm. I dislike sims always cooking mac and cheese in it in the first place.
I still enjoy university because of my custom dorms and my teen prep school for university.
I also enjoy giving dormies complete makeovers and having them become friends and life partners for my sims.
NAPs and the world kills it for me. I also lost interest in the eco game play.
I removed it and the only things I miss are the community spaces and shipping container wallpapers.
I got the silly pack when I found out I can turn my lots green, it had a cool Native hairstyle, rustic outfits & objects.
