    Inside look at the Modern Menswear Kit - I thought it was good, I am not interested in the kit but it was interesting to listen to the people involved in making it. I felt that it was a bit long though and I don't agree what you said about "Modern Menswear" (that everyone is going to wear clothes like this in the future) but it doesn't matter.

    Pronouns update - It's good that you are going to talk with language experts, because this sounds like a huge undertaking that I am not sure is worth it.

    First look at the updated NPCs - It was nice that you shared artwork with us, but I think that you might have done it a bit early. I suspect that this is not what they will end up looking like in the game.

    Neighborhood stories feature - This could turn into something good, especially if we could end up getting pack integration. I do hope that we will get options to turn this on or off, and right now it seems pretty basic. These small updates are good but it makes the game feels so stretched out. Are we going to keep going with this for several more years? Features being released in small parts until they are finished?

    Holiday Scenario and SDX Content - The items looked good.

    Ugh I know I can watch the replay but I'm sad I won't be home to watch it live and participate in the chat 🥺
    I love these little livestreams they do.

    It's okay @Babykittyjade , I won't be watching it live either! I usually just read a recap after, but we can watch the replay and have our own chat if you want. :smile:

    I'm watching it right now before I read about the updates 😁😁😁
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    Was trying to catch up on the livestream now (had a conflicting zoom at the time, so had to miss it) and fur was flying over the inclusion aspect in the comments. Had me thinking: whereas seeing men in skirts (kilts being a different kettle of fish) isn't what I'm used to, it wasn't that long ago that people were outraged at women wearing pants. Before that, they thought the aeroplane would be the death of us all because we weren't meant to fly and it went against nature. :D Looking back at how we humans fear everything new, we can laugh at ourselves and it's healthy.

    They mentioned wanting feedback on the changes to the NPC Townies. I think that you should keep in mind that when Simmers talk about fixing Townies that they want them to reflect on previous games along with giving them warm and cold-weather outfits. Meaning that Simmers want the characters to look like they did in previous games. Fake Gamer Girl did an awesome job when she remade these characters to look like their Sims 2 versions. What we saw on the live stream did not really reflect the previous versions of the characters. If I had to choose between what was shown and what we have to keep in my game, I would probably keep what I have. However, out of the four I liked Mortimore the most.

    I think you can tweet directly at simgurujessica as I believe she was the one taking feedback and also responded to some feedback on Twitter. I might have the wrong guru though I'm not sure.

    I just wish that there had been more moderation of the chat. I saw some things being taken down but not all the toxicity.

    I wish people would realize that even if something isn't to your taste, it doesn't mean that it isn't something that *others* have been begging to have. So many people saying "this isn't masculinity" when it's just another aspect (even if it's not *their* aspect.) While it would be lovely to have more "mainstream" masculine clothes, we do get some with every pack. Not so with the sort of things in the new kit. It's not to my taste but I celebrate that others I've seen saying they wished for this can *finally* have them. (And those who don't like them, aren't stuck with having them because they want the gameplay in the pack.)

    I think some of it has just been bad advertising.

    The "who needs menswear when you can have Stefan Cooke's menswear" was bound to raise voices calling for just ordinary menswear (me included). Anyhow, I think there's a line and no one has to be rude about it. EA always said that kits would be mainly aimed at niche themes and that is what this pack is.

    Thank you, EA, for patching toddlers in.

    I'm hoping Bella looks more like this once they've finished with her

    I'm glad they're going back to update the NPCs.

    I'm glad they're going back to update the NPCs. But they need to look at warming Bella, Nina, and Dina's skintones. I understand these are just concepts, but I hope they're seeing the feedback of them regardless. Love what they've done with Mortimer!
