    I'll buy it on release. I'm very much looking forward for it. My sims not always get married and they use to elope but i'll def go through some of the stages now, which ones will depend on their personalities. I also like the idea of the renewal of votes... I love to play with elders and this seems like a super cute thing to look forward in my sim's latest days...

    I also see some content that i'ld love to have outside of the wedding scope, like a new beach and sunny holiday/residential destiny, the new cakes (by the trailer, it seems that we're able to bake and decorate them at home so maybe it'll be always available regardless of there being a wedding), the tea set will def improve my high society clubs 😅, the memories (i'ld love for it to be a memories book to hold family pictures, even more if it's not always attached to the wedding)...

    Yup same. I voted “yes” some time ago but now it's irrelevant.

    Interesting. What’s the reason for this? I take it that some of its content is regarded as inappropriate? 🤔
    Were you able to see the trailer? If so, would you have considered buying if this pack was made available to you?

    Trailer is fine, it's not blocked.

    So, in trying to be all-inclusive, they exclude an entire country.

    Here's a thread for any additional comments on the team's decision to not make the game available in Russia.

    Yes, I can hardly wait till it comes out! I think the only thing that would have excited me more was real babies ( not tied to a crib ). My daughter is very excited too! So many cakes, so many toppers, so many dresses, bouquets, and a beautiful world!

    I should have voted after the stream. Now im undecided.. I was hoping for attraction system and memories. for me was making a lot of sense they include these features in this gp.. Now i dont know because it feels empty once again

    I was undecided but after hearing about the livestream and all the bugs and the current controversy at the moment it’s a no. I don’t do weddings in the game and I don’t like the look of cas and bb seems meh. The world is not enough for me to buy it at the moment.

    After watching some Sims 3 videos of Sims 3 weddings and seeing how even Sims 3 weddings are also kind of meh chaotic parties as well, I can safely say that this pack is adding stuff and a few things to weddings, so I’m pretty happy with getting this pack, because it’s trying to add some details to the planning of the weddings/adding some aspects to the wedding. :smile:

    I chose "Undecided" but could probably have chosen "Yes, I do". I love the world, normally don't play weddings and will never ever spend several sim days on these events. Some features and BB/CAS will go well with my nobility though. I will not get the pack on release day, but more likely "eventually".

    Now that I've seen it, no. I have very little interest in the gameplay, build buy, and and CAS now that the livestream showed us what's in it. I was really hoping they would do something to improve romance, like add an attraction system into the likes/dislikes. Without that, I don't see it adding to my own play.

    I was so excited for this pack, but my enthusiasm has dimmed somewhat. I may wait for a sale, but I want to watch the Gamechanger playthroughs to see if that changes my mind. Also I'm feeling sad for Russian simmers, and that dampens my enthusiasm too. So I'm back in the undecided camp.

    But not because of the theme because I know I'd personally grow to hate planning the wedding and holding it for multiple sims. I'll be getting it because of the new world and items to use when it goes on sale.

    Not feeling it at the moment. (But Weddings are not a huge deal for me.)
    -It feels like EA is virtue signaling while denying other countries access to the game.
    -The pack seems to be ignoring adding game play that get sims romantically involved in the first place.
    -Another lightweight world with isolated lots. (great for a romantic getaway however)
    -The Tea Set is a disappointment. I was hoping it would be more like the TS3 Tea Set table that made it more of a social experience.
    -Did not like the wedding ceremony. Too much micromanaging. Plus the demo was so lackluster and timid that I feel an actual full blown ceremony full of guests would self-destruct.

    If I were to buy this, I would probably use it as a romantic getaway destination, have sims marry at the rabbit hole, and rarely use the actual wedding ceremony. I would most likely go through all this only for my favorite sims.

    This is a wait and see pack.
    I will let others fully explore it before I decide to buy it.
    As it is, my use for it, will require more fun things to do to use it a romantic vacation destination. Perhaps if we get casinos or vacation resorts.

    I love doing weddings in Sims 4 even if sometimes it is a pain in the neck because sims never do what you want them to do. So I was happy to have a wedding pack. But the wedding they showed in the livestream went so bad it left me frustrated. I will wait to see the game changers vidéos. If their weddings are as glitchy I will not buy it, or perhaps on sale for the world which I liked very much.

    I chose no.
    It would've been yes, but with excluding Russia from buying it, because they are "supporting" their decision rings kind of hollow.
    I did like what I saw, and had planned to buy it, but with how this pack was handled in the real world settings kind of tainted it for me.

    Yes. It is so neccessary to my game in a way I couldn't have ever expected, and it all looks beautiful. Tartosa is my dream world and that shocks ME. While I'm not happy with EA's decision to sell it in Russia because of ''values'' or whatever, I still require this pack in my game.

    Yes, I'm not too interested in the wedding portion though, I just want the world. Luckily I get paid next week so I will be buying it on its release day.

    I don't understand why people are so willing to buy something that is demonstrated to be broken on release. Do you guys go buy broken appliances and torn clothes?

    I like the world, especially the village neighboorhood. It has many neighboorhood amenities. (Food stalls, flower shop, city hall, beaches, collection, playground) I think its the best world we got in a game pack so far. I know strangerville had more lots but the neighboorhoods didnt offer much. Apart from the storyline, it only had a curio shop and a fishing spot.
    Cas and BB are very specific to weddings and it is sort of meh.
    I didnt expect to like the gameplay at all because my sims never get married, so I wasnt dissapointed by the livestream as much as the other players. It is not going to be my favorite gameplay (nothing tops vampires) but overall I think it is a solid pack.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I watched the livestream and almost everything the nay-sayers are crying about as "broken" was actually user error.
    As for the rest, a modder will fix it if Maxis doesn't. I'm more than willing to buy something that is not in brand-new condition if the price is reasonable and, I'm sorry, but the price of games as compared to how much enjoyment I get out of them is lower than any other form of entertainment that I have. I spend over 80 bucks a MONTH on my streaming Television services, for example, and watch TV like 10-20% as much as I play Sims games.
    This post will be edited by StormKeep at some point.

    I’ll be getting it. Not gonna be shy about saying the reason I will is because I really really really do like the new world. As someone who lives in a Mediterranean climate on the other side of the world from the Med, it’s got a homey feeling to it. I don’t see myself actually using much of the wedding features on a regular basis, I just want that map.

    I figure I haven’t bought any of the last 4 kits (plus the retro fitness one) and am not in a hurry to do so and therefore have money saved to purchase the pack.

    Definitely getting this, because the world's going to be awesome to take screenshots of. And new stuff is always good. I need to renovate Cordelia Manor's chapel, and some of the objects from this pack will help me with this task.

    That said, I'm really dissapointed in EA for their decision to not release it to the Russian simmers. Everyone should have a chance to play games.

    I had/have no interest in the gameplay, as I said originally, I'm buying but JUST for the world, that was my plan all along. I don't do weddings, that doesn't interest me, the CAS is not very good in my mind, the BB is not going to be very usable in regular builds but I'm pretty sure the world will still be playable.
