    Hi all,
    I was wondering what small features you would like added into TS4. I don't mean anything game-changing like pets or seasons - I think most of us would like to see those at some point.

    I for example really want the option to buy a cake instead of having to make one yourself every single time. I'd also like the option for sims to play tag with each other, and for swings to come back. Just some small little features that add to the game! What would you like to see?

    Tying into the cake thing, I would like the auto-photo thing back which takes a snap at the perfect moment during a big event (wedding kiss? was this in TS1 or TS3? I forget). I always struggle to get these photos as if you pause just before, sometimes the game stutters and runs over the actual bit you wanted to photograph! Agh!

    You mean the PIP function? I remember that from The S1and The S2,

    It worked more as an automatic scrapbook that was set on a timer as it took pictures of events that were of importance in the S1 than the S2.

    It also acted as "Hey someone or something is coming, you may want to check it out" and opened up a small pop-up window of the event (a burglar on your lot or someone ringing your doorbell are some examples)

    The Sims 2 worked with the latter and used it as Sims 1 did as a POI (point of interest)

    It would be nice to see the automatic picture thing back, it's one way I keep track of what's going on with my family.

    Oh, speaking of keeping track, If its not to much, I want the picture memory description to allow more text as i'll will be in the middle of writting a description and then have to edit it down because i can't write a more detailed memory :/

    At the moment after I take the picture, I have to put it to a microsoft document, argh, so bothersome! *sigh* I'm a writer, so this is extremly limiting in-game.
    Skies Of Arcadia Legends is an underrated game

    Yes, we can. I believe there even was (or still is) a bug where Sims would drink tap water ALL THE TIME. I was using the mod to control that.

    Please EA use the GT group thing and added classes to the school system please. I should be able to know who is in my high school class and who is in the elementary class. The classes could share the same space as clubs but can't be removed. I need to know the boygirl ratio of the school system, as of currently I can't find any teenagers of the right age group for my sims. Also 1/4 of them are family members kids. I want to be able to see Elementary class and High School class.

    I would like to see a fully fledged school better than the mod to be honest with the option to work or attend as a student.

    I would love it if we were able to send gifts to anyone we know that we could choose to wrap in different paper. For example, brown paper could be free but you could pay to have other patterned paper. I would also like the opportunity to send prank gifts to disliked people.

    A great ideal. :)
    Regretting not buying all the Sims 3 packs when they were on sale. :s
    (Q) Which pack do I regret most buying?
    (A) Sims 4 base game.

    Hear this one out, will we ever have the weeks and days displayed by hovering our mouse over the clock ? It would help a lot really.

    1-More farming stuff
    2-Pin things to sim in CAS
    3-Teaching career. I think it'd be interesting
    4-Buying things from market like in TS2
    5-Color wheel specifically for house stuff. That'll remove burden of tons of cc

    1. More meals (like more breakfasts that arent egg related. Different cereals maybe?)
    2. More playground equipment for kids and toddlers, including ones they can use together. (I was thinking swingsets and a baby swing, sandboxes, maybe a merry go round and seesaw, and a slide for the older kids that isn't attached to the ridiculously huge pirate ship)
    3. Piercings and more tattoos

    Sime 4 needs to bring back the "sneak out" option for teenaged Sims! It would provide a more immersive experience with the parenthood expansion!
