Clothes Shopping again?

«13
So many of us know that we can't clothes shop on The Sims 3 which seriously sucks so much, are we gonna be able to clothes shop again on The Sims 4 like how we could on The Sims 2 I'm highly guessing no already because they would have already said wouldn't they?

    It's likely there's features of the game they haven't revealed yet, what with the game coming out net year. :D So it's entirely possible clothes shopping might come back.

    Well according to PC Power play (or whatever the magazine is called... it is in the name of one of the threads here) it mentions 'expensive clothes' when talking about being in the flirty mood, so I am guessing if clothes are gonna be 'expensive' they would have to cost simoleons... which means hopefully CLOTHES SHOPPING! LOOOL! EEEP WOOO!!!! LOL :)

    EDIT: It was PC Power Play, here is the thread about the magazine

    I hope we get it. Graham was asking for our thoughts on it on twitter (and I believe here too) recently, so I guess they're considering it.

    Most people seemed to want clothes shopping back, but also some kind of 'unlockalloutfits' type cheat for if you're storytelling/showcasing a lot/in too lazy a mood to shop.

    I want sims 2 style clothes shopping but with a few slight improvements:

    * To be able to assign a wardrobe to an individual sim. In sims 2 the clothes for the household were all kind of thrown in together. I's like to be able to click on a wardrobe and assign it to a sim (like beds/doors in TS3) and then to be able to put clothes in the wardrobe (like how you buy fruit and put it in the fridge). Then I think it would be funny to have a 'steal clothes' interaction, so siblings could steal clothes from each other! :lol:

    * I think it would be good to have sims randomly select appropriate clothing from their wardrobe each day. So they don't wear the same clothes every day but you get some variety. maybe there could be a 'lock outfit' option, in case you get one that you just want to stick with and wear every day! Your sim keep wearing a horrid outfit? Just take it out of that sim's wardrobe! (disclaimer... this one isn't my idea, I stole it off someone because I think it's awesome!)

    I've wanted something like this for so long it's not even funny! Maybe we could assemble a few outfits for our sim to pick from whenever they changed. That would be perfect! :mrgreen:

    But I will never understand why simmers liked shopping for clothes so much. It's such a big waste of time to me. I loved how in The Sims 3 you could just change your outfit to whatever you want without having to buy each individual piece for a ridiculous amount of simoleans.

    That being said, having an 'unlockalloutfits'-type cheat would be great. I ended up using MATY's clothing cheat object in The Sims 2 anyway.

    I'd love to have actual shopping back. I hate how they have everything available to them at all times. It would be even better if you could buy clothes, set 3 or more different outfits for your sim, and they would change into a different outfit every day automatically.

    I really hope clothing stores are back in the game. I miss shopping for clothes as well. It always gave my rich sims something to spend their money on. I am really hoping that layerable clothing is added to the base game, it would really go a long way in making our sims more individual.

    Sucks?

    One of the first things I did in The Sims 2 is bought all the clothes.

    So it never really sucked for me to not have that available.

    See a lot of people want clothing shopping back EA were kinds silly to remove the whole clothing store aspect hopefully though there is a dresser option for those that don't wanna buy clothes those that wanna just have it their own way

    I think it was due to the game engine. Or I'm giving EA too much credit, and the real reason is because they're just lazy.

    Yeah, I'm going with lazy.

    My pc won't let me read everything. I try clicking on the picture then right click like it says and nothing happens. I'm on google chrome so that maybe the reason. A lot of sites seem to not work good with google chrome anymore. :?

    Simmerfreak44,

    Not if it was going to be say part of an expansion pack, and not included in the base game, so it might still be in the Sims 4.

    A new outfit everyday, I really like this idea! You could pick a certain amount of outfits and they would randomly change each passing day

    True that is, but yes we are getting clothing shopping with Into The Future which is what I'm excited about even if we can't get clothes from late night or island paradise, but has there been any word about clothes shopping for the sism 4 and is it an open neighborhood.

    All I can say is "there better be!!"

    I seriously missed clothes shopping in Sims 3. I do not like that all sims have access to all the fashion in the world at their dressers.

    Also, a recent article mentioned wearing "expensive clothes" and it was not specific about that being formal wear, so this could suggest that clothes shopping is back. I hope that's the case! I would not want clothes being labelled as "expensive" or "thrifty" and so forth. Also, formal wear is not necessarily expensive, it's just... formal :P So yeah, I hope we're getting clothes shopping again!

    I don't understand why people would say "it's such a big waste of time" I mean, what do you consider to be a good use of time in the Sims? Going to rabbitholes? *snicker*

    I think gameplay is a good use of time! I want stuff for my sims to do on the town. My sims don't stay at home all the time--I want them having all sorts of fun things to do on the town. If shopping for clothes isn't that fun for you, you could do it once and just buy a huge assortment of clothes for the whole family.

    But I think the majority of players really do want MORE things to do away from the sims' homes, and do not like having all clothes available for free from the dresser.

    I definitely want this back from TS2. It was fun saving up money from your Sim's job then driving over to the downtown subhood for new clothes.

    I hope they make the stores similar to TS2 rather than TS3 also. I don't like how you spend so long talking to the cashier then are presented with a pop up. In fact, they should do it like ITF's shops! Have everything laid out, pick what you want, but bring it over to the cashier for checkout.

    I can kind of see where people are coming from when they say it's a waste of time. On one hand it added realism to the game, but on the other it ate a huge chunk of time. I have to share my computer with several family members, meaning I don't have unlimited time when I get home to play. When I start up a Sims game I want to play with the sims, not spend 30+ minutes finding clothes. However, I know a lot of people want this feature and it certainly wouldn't be a game breaker to me if it were added. I might even come to like it.

    OH MY GOODNESS!

    Clothes shopping.

    I think in CAS we should be able to make all the normal outfits (everyday, formal, sleepwear, athletic, swimwear, outerwear) and then we should be able to go shopping for outfits each day. Like, we should be able to set a monday outfit, tuesday outfit, wednesday outfit, thursday, friday, saturday and sunday everyday outfit so that when the sims change their clothes they have a different outfit to put on each day and we have to BUY these clothes with simoleons, so they have to pay for them, these week outfits won't come free :D

    I really hope that we'll see those back as my rich Sims (2nd - 3rd generation out of CAS) don't have where to put their money :lol:

    Also, interesting fact is in the early TS3 gameplay videos we were able to see clothes shop (as well as wardrobes and some more objects which for some unknown reasons weren't included to a final product) :roll:
