Which premade townies in Sims 4 do you think should be in Sims 5?

I always see people talking about townies in previous Sims game that they want to return so it makes me wonder what townies from the Sims 4 would people be asking for when Sims 5 comes around?

    None. If I had my way, there would never be pre-made sims for any new packs or games. But if I can't have that, I'd rather they start with brand new sims in a brand new game.

    No premades from previous iterations.
    Do more of what makes you happy. 🌞

    I was making a long list

    until I just realized I'd want all of them
    and I be better off just playing ts4 :lol:

    I have made and planned so many stories between the households that I am not willing to let go of

    and itd just break my heart if for example they added vlad but they didn't add judith or something like noooo :bawling: they belong together *desperately trying to keep the ship from sinking*

    I guess in that way it would be good if they just started fresh tbh with new families new lore cause then theres no lore errors or problems of having this household but not that household

    and there also isn't the whole chaos of premades from 4 games trying to include everyone anyone ever loved :sweat_smile:

    Apart from the classics, like the Landgraabs and the Goths and the Calientes I think they should include...

    Tina Tinker and Knox Greenburg, I think these two should be included in some way, they come over and visit the player when you have problems with broken items or if your house is dirty and I like that, it creates more gameplay and events. And they seem to be pretty popular in the community.

    Becca Clarke, Julia Wright and Cameron Fletcher, they could be involved with the university gameplay features if there will be any.

    Penny Pizzaz, she kinda introduced you to using social media in City Living, she could have some role doing that in the future.

    Miko Ojo, Akira Kibo and Darling Walsh, they could introduce you to the city life, or just hang around at clubs or at gyms.

    Vlad, he seems to be popular in the community, and the sims5 will probably have vampires at some point.

    I'm not sure if these count but I wouldn't mind seeing some sims from the reboot too that Maxis shared on the gallery, particularly Mia Hayes and Dela Ostrow who I think showcased freelance jobs pretty well.

    I think Maxis made some great sims when they showcased some packs too: Like Hina K and Patina Wainscot.

    Depends on whether they decide to continue the premades' stories or start them at the same point where we meet them in Sims 4. I don't want Maxis to come up with canon developments for my favorites, I already didn't like that in Sims 2 with Brandi Broke/Newbie.

    But if we could get our favorites at the same starting point they are in Sims 4, then please give me:
    From Basegame: June Kay, Amber Stein, Armand Diaggro, Johnny Zest, maybe also the BFF
    From Windenburg: The Villareal, the Renegades (including the two from the trailer), the Behr sisters, the Good Timers (including the ones from the trailer)
    From San Myshuno: Danny Shino-Miller, Jordan Mayer
    From Strangerville: George Cahill, Erwin Pries
    From Britechester: Julia Wright

    Notice a pattern? The trailer sims left much more of an impression on my than the official premades. And that is strange, because I tend to hate the trailers themselves, but the sims in them did strike a chord.
    my sims blog alternates between gameplay with the Villareal and picture stories with my Detroit (android) sims

    The sims in sims 4 that seem popular that (I think) are new to the series are:

    The Pancakes - almost as iconic as the goths. Everyone hates Eliza and everyone loves Bob. They also seem to have a son izzy. They are always in trailers too.

    Vlad - he is one of the most popular ones out of all of them.

    Akira kibo

    Penny pizzazz

    Makoa kealoha - I've seen a lot of people gush about his looks lol.

    The Vatore siblings

    Dirk dreamer

    The Bailey-moons - They just seem to be an interesting couple and a lot of people seem to like them

    Knox greenburg - He is a unique looking sim and he is also in Sims mobile

    Michael bell - He's just an interesting little hobbit/non-hobbit

    I think the classics, definitely. It’s not The Sims without The Goths, Landgraabs, and Calientes. The only family from Sims 4 that seem to have reached that same level of iconic status are the Pancakes, so I would definitely want them in base game in Sims 5. Throw in Candy Behr and The Fengs for some spice. I’d also like to see the return of the Alto family from Sims 3.

    As for packs, I would like to see Nalani return for an island/mermaid pack. Supernaturals should include Vlad, Guidry and Morgyn in some context. I don’t remember strong premade personalities in the Sims 3 Supernatural, so having that in Sims 4 has made this aspect of the game more fun to me.

    I think there’s truth to this with me, too. Sims that are featured in the trailers automatically have additional personality appeal when I encounter them in game.

    Bring back the Hatfield, McCoy, Roomies, Jones, Maximus and Snooty Patooty families from Sims 1. They completely vanished from the game after that (The last 3 were able to be downloaded from the old Sims 1 Exchange website). Also, the Brokes, Pleasants, Burbs, Goths, Calientes, etc from Sims 2. I don't remember any from Sims 3. These are just the ones I would want to continue in the series.

    The Landgraabs, Goths, Villareals, Pancakes, Calientes, Fengs, BFF's (Travis, Liberty Lee, and Summer Holiday) are not Townies. They are households. A townie is a sim that has no home. Like the mailman or maid. The most famous one is the unkillable, never will she die, immortal Alex Moyer. But it's cool that you ask the question about who should be in TS5. I'd say all of the usual suspects mentioned above including Alex Moyer who as I write this post is my eternal love buddy. Lol

    Lothario, Goths, Landgraabs, Pancakes (I guess they've become iconic too), Vlad, Morgyn, Julia Wright...

    I don‘t like any of them tbh. Maybe the good looking guys for eye candy, e.g. Akira Kibo, Salim Benali.

    I find it interesting that Landgraab is your first family when they were only added as recently as the Sims 3

    Have you played the Sims 2? I feel like it's impossible to spend time in that game and NOT feel connected to at least one of the families.

    Goth, Caliente, Lothario, Broke, Pleasant, Beaker, Specter, Smith

    All the ones from Sims 2 is my wish in every game. I make them myself if they're not there. I also really like the Vatore Vampires and the Pancakes.

    Actually, there was a Landgraab in Sims 2, but he was introduced in an expansion pack.
    I have been playing The Sims since 2001, when Livin Large came out. My avatar deliberately looks like Chris Roomies from TS1.

    And predates the Sims, given that Malcolm Landgraab appears in SimCity 3000 (looking completely different to later iterations) as well as the Console spinoff games where he got the most character progression.

    Honestly, I never gelled with Pleasantview. I found it really disheartening they decided to essentially kill off everyone we knew and loved from TS1, and replace them with their trashy children, engaged in trashy soap opera drama (seriously the only people in a healthy relationship in Pleasantview weren't even living in Pleasantview). Not to mention they made the single most popular character from Ts1 unplayable as part of a alien mystery storyline.

    Side note, but I feel Bella Goth is the Peter Parker of the Sims lore. Peter Parker (Spider-man) is Marvel's comics most popular character without a doubt - and rivals Batman in popularity in comics overall. However, it is obvious editorial does not want any meaningful change of status quote, any any change is usually reverted shortly afterwards so he feels "relatable". This means him being single, under 30, broke and living with roommates, operating anonymously as Spider-man with an ailing Aunt May in the background. This lead to what is considered the worst comic storyline ever - One Day More - where a married, successful Peter Parker sacrifices his marriage to Mary Jane, and his first born child to the devil in order to save the life of his dying Aunt May who was shot because Spider-man's identity was known - this erased decades worth of storyline and character development because parenthood and marriage was seen by the head of Marvel comics as ageing him too much and being too unrelatable to younger readers.

    I sort of see this with Bella, they are always concerned with not deviating too far from status quo, she always has to be adult or younger (despite literally everyone else dying from old age, even her fresh out of college brother Michael dies of old age 25 years later - seriously why did they add a hard number of years to a game that doesn't operate in hard numbers?), so anything that "preserves" her, her appearance is prioritised. They don't want to age her up to elder, they don't want to kill her off.

    However, saying that, I would personally prefer if they returned to older lore in the timeline, ie, between 1 and 2, where the family founding fathers (like Bob and Betty Newbie, Jeff and Diane Pleasant, Brad and Tiffany Burb) are still alive, and move past the era of meme boss Nancy Landgraab and return Malcolm to centre stage, perhaps with Dudley and Mimi, and an ex wife to boot, plus the drama obsessed folks can have teenage Calientes.

    In terms of characters that were introduced in TS4, Judith Ward just has to return in a TS5 fame pack, along with a chain of ex husbands, lovers and maybe even an estranged child or two.

    Know and his mothers would be a welcome return too, but only if we have suitable eco stuff in the game or pack they come in.

    Controversial opinion, but I wouldn't mind seeing the Mother Plant again.

    4 has a lot of good townies in my opinion. I wouldn't mind seeing the Pancakes, the Landgraabs (Sims 4 version not Sims 3), the Vatores, the Fengs, the Behrs, Vlad, Nalani, Miko Ojo, etc make a return. Plus the Goths and Calientes, but a version closer to the Sims 2
