If you do a Fame EP, do it like Superstar.
The Sims 1: Superstar's celebrity system was the most fun in the entire series. You could become an Actor and actually see your Sim act, a Singer and record Songs in the studio or film music videos or become a Model and serve looks at the catwalk.

One your Sim reached a certain star level, your Sim's life would drastically change. There were paparazzi's roaming through your trash you needed the take care of and fanatic fans giving you presents, wanting autographs or falling into a coma after seeing your Sim.
It almost felt like a Famous Sim was a new life state like a vampire for example, and that was fun!

We had another celebrity system in TS3, but that was basically by getting to know famous people and then spreading the "fame virus" to everyone else. Not really fun at all.

    Second the motion. While we're at it, the Making Magic would be fun as well. That was much better than the witch thing in TS2, more light-hearted.

    Yes to both Superstar and Makin' Magic.

    Superstar was so fun!
    It is my most favorite Sims 1 expansion. I really wanted Sims 3 Showtime to be like Superstar but it wasn't at all.
  • NindlNindl Posts: 507 Member
    I agree! Also yes to a Makin Magic kind of pack.
  • DannydanboDannydanbo Posts: 18,005 Member
    Superstar would be a great time to bring back Mrs. Crumplebottom.

    Idk why but I wish we could get a proper Hot Date/Nightlife/Late Night pack for Sims 4, Get Together was totally different, I don't consider CL or GT as the Late Night pack of TS4. Why can't we get both, Superstar AND Hot Date/Nightlife? I miss the photobooths and pool game.

    I SO need Superstar! I want my Sims to become appreciated artists/actors/film directors etc. There could be paparazzis too, but PLEASE Maxis, make them more like they were in TS1 Superstar! <3
    I think we could get a separate Supermodel/Fashion Forward GP and be able to design our own clothes for Sims using a new pattern/design tool or something. I remember reading about that idea in some Sims 4 pack survey. :)

    Modelling Gamepack
    Singer Gamepack etc etc

    I really want this.

    Superstar is one of the Ecpansion packs I really want remade in TS4.

    I'd rather have a fully fledged Expansion for this theme, like Seasons. :)

    Yes please to both a Superstar and a Makin' Magic based pack!
  • sigge17sigge17 Posts: 1 New Member
    i'dont think! They will make Making magic and Superstar. Becous of The Limitations on The game engine they use in The sims 4 And that won.t be possible. Even if they tryed. The idea of Making magic and superstar. is not A priority for Maxis and EA. "i stand on my Question" About it.

    I think they're able to create an Expansion like Superstar. TS1's engine was more limited than the current one and they still managed to create this fun and amazing Superstar Expansion, unless you're speaking about Open World or the color wheel, then you're right. It's too limited for that.

    I'm not sure it'd be that difficult to replicate Superstar with the active careers, but Makin' Magic might be more difficult.

    So I've been playing the sims since almost the very beginning. If I remember correctly TS1 was fully complete when I was introduced to the sims and I purchased all of the games second hand and have every pack except makin' magic (My parents were super religious. But it was so long ago I don't feel like I missed out anymore).

    But of all of the packs, superstar was my all time favourite! I really liked the new area just for getting the fame levels up. It was so much fun!

    I would be beyond hyped if they just completely remade this pack in TS4 as is.

    I agree, Makin' Magic was also really awesome.
    If we get an EP like Superstar I also hope they include a new world, along with a studio town area, a private mansion neighborhood for the stars and a run-down starting neighborhood for stars-to-be

    That does sound fun, doesn't it?

    Me too! They could even add the attraction system!

    Same here i would really like to see a sims 4 version of this i didn't play the sims back then but i love that you can actually see your sim recording songs act and model would be a really great EP if well done i would love the fame system to be like sims 1 but with the stars indicating what level celebrity your sim is
  • BloodValkyrieBloodValkyrie Posts: 232 Member
    This would have to have careers similar to Get To Work. I wouldn't mind that. I'd love to have a super model sim, even though in real life I don't ever want to be a model ... ever. I'd also love an actor sim, and I'd love for there to be two lots, one for stage actors and one for film actors. Sounds like a bit much, though. I hope they'd be able to pull that off.

    I would want the celebrity system reworked. I hated how my sim became a celebrity just by meeting a star and befriending them. And there are only a few sims I would want to become a celebrity. I mean, everyone can't be a celebrity, right. Most sims just need to be normal, everyday sims. If every sim is a celebrity, what makes it special?

    I couldn't agree more. I really disliked that in Sims 3. It was way to easy to become a star and it was odd when, for example, a normal family's mother was suddenly a celebrity.

    Those pictures bring back some very happy memories, the hours I spent getting sims to the top of stardom; it was such a fantastic pack. I'd love to be able to send my sims 4 sims back to a studio town again. Especially liked the fashion runway and the music video set. :)

    I love Studio Town. Everything your sim needed to become an actor or model or singer was right there. And, it had low end places where you start out and high end places where you wanted to make it big and perform there. It made me sad to see that in S3 it was just a studio building on one lot that you could place anywhere. It felt more like a local TV station than a huge movie studio.
  • DrearydearyDrearydeary Posts: 85 Member
    Yes yes yes! I would loove that for both superstar and makin' magic, those are my two all time favourite expansions! I hope the sim gurus see that there's demand for this *crosses fingers*
