    I am not a fan of kits, simply because there is plenty of CC that fills the same niche, much of which is much nicer than what Maxis can do and is free. But I'm not sick and tired of the kits.

    I am well aware that kits do not interfere with the development of what I am interested in, which is new gameplay and worlds. It's a different skill sets for those things, meaning the people doing them aren't the same people at Maxis. Ergo, Kits that I don't want to buy have no impact on me, personally.

    I'm also aware that there are players who aren't willing to use CC, so for their sake, I say let the kits keep coming. Besides, I've very much liked a couple of the kits. It is just hit or miss, and that's fine. We don't all have the same tastes; the world would be boring if we did.

    I wouldn't be sick of them if they'd release some kits that I actually wanted. Like something with...oh I don't know, A POOL TABLE.

    I like them cause it's a faster way to get more new items which was a common complaint no matter what the size pack is so yeah.

    I wasn't a fan of them before, but I'd at least have been able to tolerate them if they didn't spam them like crazy, and the vast majority of them weren't CAS and BB.

    I don’t have any problems with the concept, they just haven’t released any that I wanted. If they did, I’d buy them.

    They're a terrible value for the money and they're getting in the way of higher-quality content releases.

    I was actually someone who loved the TS3 store. I originally loved the idea of the kits, and I bought a couple of the early ones that I have really enjoyed and used a lot (Courtyard and Country kitchen). However, it's a little annoying that the sole gameplay kit is yay, more cleaning, and also apparently broken/buggy, from what people have said.

    It's all gone downhill from there. Way too many clothing kits, and concepts that either don't interest me at all, or that sound good but I don't love the specific objects actually created (looking at you, plant kit).

    Which would all be well and good, if they were just one small part of the spectrum of "something for everyone," but in the absence of literally anything else, for several months, it's become much more glaring that there's absolutely nothing for me. (Unless you count challenges or story progression, which are also 100% not for me.)

    I genuinely hate to be so negative, but this is where I am with TS4 these days. It doesn't help that it looks like they straight up lied to us about kits not replacing other content.

    I'm far from being an EA apologist, but I honestly don't mind kits at all... I mean, yes, they're very much like cash grabs, but most of them (at least in my opinion) have been a nice addition to my game, personally. At least they actually come with a decent amount of content for $5. The Sims 3 store would often sell things for like $20 with the same or less amount of content. Just saying!

    However, I will say the lack of gameplay kits has been disappointing... I hope they decide to make more soon.

    Yes, they are too many, several of them are too niche and it feels like they are made to make more items for the sims4 without putting a lot of resources into it.

    I don't want that, I want more resources put into developing the game, packs have more people assigned to them and therefore are better made. Yes, they take longer to make but EA/Maxis needs to invest more so that they can have a good release schedule and offer better support.

    Kits are the opposite of that.

    Kits are fillers and yes they’ve been filling long gaps of nothing lately, but I have no problem with the concept of these packs.
    I don’t buy anything that doesn’t suit my play style anyway, kits or other.
    I’m always looking forward to something bigger and more “meaningful” since I doubt occults will be coming in a Kit.
    But sure look…I have barely time to tie my shoelaces, let alone play the sims…😆
    It’s unfair. 🥺

    It's kinda complicated
    on one hand i don't think we needed them and many themes be better as stuff pack at least

    on other hand since they made em they could make some more nichey small stuff if they wanted

    not too impressed with the themes up to now tho so my expectations remain low

    also tbh i dont mind if they spam kits in the spring cause its usually quiet as grave i just wish it does not mess with pack releases and updates too much

    Neutral because I like them but don't love them. Really want more gameplay items and we haven't had anything since bust the dust. Doesn't have to be a whole system like that was, give us like a canning station, arcade, gameplay objects with a theme.

    I like some and I don’t like some. It’s pretty much the Sims 3 store, but maybe a little bit cheaper, because I remembered paying 10+ dollars for a store set. I wished they had more in the sets, of course, but eh.

    I would still prefer Stuff packs that has a tiny bit of gameplay.

    Initially thought I was neutral leaning meh but as I think back I can't help disliking kits more. We were told kits wouldn't interfere with new SP/GP/EP but the large number of new kits and the real lack of new SP/GP/EP suggests otherwise.

    I'm tired of those build mode and CAS Kits, but I really want another gameplay kit pack.
    You can never discover The Sims games 100%. Even when you think you know everything, the game manages to surprise you.
    That's why I do experiments in the game from time to time and tutorial videos on YouTube.

    The initial 3 kits looked promising to me... but I was really looking forward to gameplay kits and so far we've had 1 out of 9... and it sounds like the next 2 are probably going to be CAS/BB too... so, yes I have already grown tired of kits.

    I like the kits. I like being able to choose a la carte what I do and don't want to spend money on. I don't love all the kits. I own four of them, am happy not to own the others, but am extra happy to have the choice.

    Everybody's been saying kits don't interfere with development, but there's been no EP this winter, yet somehow EA tricked their fanbase into shelling out $40 anyway.

    You're looking at it backwards, if whatever EP they are working on had some development issues which needed to be worked out, that doesn't take the staff that make CAS and BB items, only the ones that work on code. i.e. those other people had time to work on stuff for kits.
    The development teams consist of a lot of different skill sets, and the ones who handle gameplay and code are not the same people as the ones that design clothes, furniture and wallpaper (etc.).

    I also imagine the development of TS5 is likely to effect content for TS4 as well. Different stages of the new game development process require more or less of the varying skill sets as well, so at any given point I can see specific types of content for TS4 being impacted if they have to shuffle people around to meet project goal deadlines on TS5.

    I don't mind the touch of something sometimes a little different (some are so easy to skip and save some dough), but I take issue with it seeming like they are now a substitute for packs that have gameplay and more impact on the game.
