January 14th - It's time for our Friday Highlights! You can check them out here!

What We Really Need!

I feel so called out when a long time ago, I had made a joke about the next stuff pack containing vacuums. And I was right, but it was in kit form. I already gave in once with the Laundry Day and don't really mind it much because of the decor items and such but vacuums just alone is a bit much... anyways.

This is what I, along with what I hope are many others, really want to see in the future of Sims 4 and not have to rely on mods:

- Drivable cars/motorcycles
- Band instruments i.e. bass, drums, electric guitar, saxophone, trumpet and such for rock, blues, jazz, etc. with the possibility of more song options to sing. It was huge in Sims 2 and 3 and I want to see an improvement in 4!
- Babies that are not objects! I know we saw some hints towards this but come on...
- Fairies
- Werewolves
- Zombies/Mummies again
- Horses/Unicorns
- The return of billiards/pool tables! Come on now! 1, 2, 3 had them! Shuffleboards would be nice again too
- Casinos/gambling like slots, black jack, poker, roulette, etc.
- Spiral staircases. Again, 1-3 had them :c
- More vacation worlds
- More cultural aspects
- Disabilities/health conditions

Feel free to add on, Simmers!

    Multi-purpose community lots(like if we want to have a vet clinic,a cafe and a spa on the same lot we should be able to have them on the same lot)

    Laundromats,post offices,tennis courts,zoos,and movie cinemas

    Hobbies and Pastimes(like martial arts,ballet,archery,pottery,etc)

    Amusement parks(no llama or gnome themes,EA-those themes are terribly overdone)

    Reptiles,fish,birds and ferrets as pets


    Convienience stores(complete with working slushie machines)

    1980s themed stuff or game pack.

    Worlds based on Greece,Italy,Africa,Norway,Australia,Canada and Mexico

    A better retail system where you can have actual stores(like in Sims 1)

    Musical instruments such as drums, saxophones,trumpets,banjos,accordions,Flying V guitars,etc.

    Jobs in the the rail travel,education/dental,air travel, postal service,tourist attraction industries. It would be nice if we could follow our Sims to these types of jobs.

    Fix Evergreen Harbor,please! In build mode,Evergreen Harbor looks like it's in a permanent flood.

    Seeing as just about all the important things have been listed we need a world creator or be able to edit the ugly worlds we have including adding more lots.
    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    I started this account mostly because I wanted to submit the idea of bringing sculptures back. Like, a sim can model for a sculptor in any pose/outfit, and the sculptor sculpts them, and the sculptor is just the sim's model in that pose, but stone-texture/gray. It might be interesting to have wood types as an option, too, or lava rock if the player has Island Living. Metal could also be an interesting option, and the sizes can be small (like a toy), medium (like a vase decor item), and life-size. There could be bases or displays that they could sit on so you could put the statues in a park, or make your own little trophies. They could use the poses used for photography too!

    Actually this brings up another point...I want better poses for photography that involves mixed age groups (specifically when kids, adults, and pets are involved). I tried taking family pictures with adults and kids (using Moschino) and it looked so awkward.

  • LuvDaBuildzLuvDaBuildz Posts: 1 New Member
    I would like if updates to Dining Out and Get to Work would allow:
    -Sims to sell retail items in their restaurants (like a bakery could serve orders to customers but they could also buy ready-made items and leave)
    -Sims who own a restaurant could cook the food themselves and hire relatives / household members
    -Sims can live at their restaurant / retail store
    -Toddlers can stay at the restaurant / retail store when it is open

    Someone may have already mentioned this (I skimmed the thread fairly quickly and could've overlooked it), but I think we need better filters for CAS and BB. In those filters I'd love to see an option to hide stuff by category, pack, and maybe even individual items. It's very annoying to have so many things that I never use (some of which I never chose to have in the first place and never plan to use) taking up so much visual real estate when I'm looking for other things that I do want to use. Better yet and tangentially related, I'd love to have the option not to download free updates that only add CAS or BB stuff that I don't actually want.

    My love, my love, my fearless love, I will not say goodbye..

    My heart, my heart, My drowning heart, Oh all the tears I've cried
    Oh I may weep forevermore, My love will never die..

    It's kind of devastating to see these lists cramped with gameplay that's still missing while we might possibly only get 1 EP, 1 GP and 1 SP in 2022, like we did in 2021. Maybe 1 Gameplay Kit on top - hopefully not one that will keep the team busy just fixing it for several months.

    That's not much potential to make dreams come true, so many players are bound to get disappointed.

    Well, let's hope for the best.
    Thank you, EA, for patching toddlers in.

    1. Hotels, Tiny Home Villages on a single lot, Micro-Apartment Complex, and Landlord as a Free-lancer career. (most desired)
    2. Expand Mt. Komorebi with more lots for homes/apartments and businesses.
    3. Expand Henford on Begley with more lots, some in more forested areas for cabins.
    4. Option to build your own hospital.
    5. New wallpaper and flooring options, a lot are slight variations of the same kind.
    6. More vacation destinations that are more international/varied landscapes.
    7. European expansion pack! France or Switzerland.
    8. Yurts as tiny homes, could be pre-set size options.
    9. Spiral staircases.
    10. Skylight windows.
    ...more to come I'm sure.

    I'd like more suburban-style lots, lots that are wider (40+ tiles) for ranch-style homes that the long end orients toward the street (that don't cost more). Currently, we have to build these types of homes on the most expensive lots in the game, and even then they don't always face front when saving. I think we have 1 lot in-game, Garden Essense, that works for entry-level builds of this type. A development. community neighborhood/expansion land where houses face a central square or pond, where more than 4 lots make up a neighborhood, like Newcrest but new and improved. Split-level builds with no platform glitch or weird gully at the side of the below-ground levels so we can have walk-out basements. The ability to build houses with multiple ceiling heights would be cool too, to really take advantage of cottage design.
