Hi,

After SP15 Moschino which really improves and extends the photography gameplay from EP01 Get To Work, do you think they should do the same thing about the aliens ?

    Sorry that I didn't vote. It's because I'm not sure about a pack, but improvements are always welcome! :)

    Edit: Now that you edited the question, my answer is: Yes via patch or some improvements could come with some other packs.. I might not want "Alien Pack" though.

    I think Aliens should have, at the very minimum, get what they had in other games. Sims 3 aliens had their own ships, this genetic purity thing (which can't be in Sims 4 without a major overhaul), and more powers, which should have carried on. As it stands, Sims 4 aliens are basically just bargain bin Sims 3 aliens. This is the Sims 4, so its content should be the same or better than what came before it. No exceptions.

    That said, I don't personally care all that much. I don't really care for aliens outside of some rare stories, and I can already make those stories in-game.

    Dear OP,

    Wouldn’t it have been nice if you had your poll choices like:

    Yes
    No
    Neutral/Indifferent
    Other (Comment)

    Man. I really don’t like these polls that confirm to OPs bias.



    No more stuff packs! You’re asking for a My First Pet fiasco. Alien improvements can be patched in. I refuse to pay extra for features that can be patched in. Please, for the love of God don’t give them these ridiculous ideas.

    What would the patch/pack do? Revert them to how they were in GTW? Aliens have been mega nerfed since we got them in GTW; they aren’t going to update them now after they butchered them in response to a few people complaining about them.

    Patch only though, as I bought GTW for the aliens, yet they were disappointing, and desperately need updating atm. Would absolutely not buy a pack to improve something that should have been improved already.

    I voted this because I think most likely player are going to be charged again, if they patched it free for the owner of GTW then I would vote yes.

    Um... None of the above?

    I mean, I have no basis for comparison, so I don't know what I'd expect from a patch or from an expansion. Some things I might be willing to pay for, some things I might not. I can't say I'm happy with Alien gameplay - I can see that they could be so much more. But it's not something I'm going to be waiting for with the same sort of anticipation I have for Realm of Magic and other future potential occults.

    If it was a patch, sure, but I don't play them enough for it to be worth a pack.

    I'd love this!
    I'd prefer patch over pack, most definitely, but I would also pay for it, because I play with aliens a lot. (And I voluntarily buy stuff for my sims and also would do this for my alien sims... I know, crazy me.)

    There's only one thing I really want to be patched in for aliens: An option to copy faces and outfits from the human form to the alien form, and vice versa. You can do it with vampires, so it's not completely unheard of. Many of my aliens don't even have a disguise in my imagination, so I never bothered creating one and just always had them in their alien forms, which was fine until the Island Living patch ruined it by forcing vampires and aliens to appear in their human forms in family pictures. This was probably done to avoid mermaids showing up with their fins, but why it also affects all the other occults is beyond me.

    Besides, sometimes I just want the alien form and the human disguise to look the same, with a few minor alterations (like eyes or skin colour), and I know MCCC has an option to copy faces, but it's not perfect and still too much of a hassle.

    I think they should stop adding to the game things they already added.

    There is always room for improvement and for The Sims 4 in particular, that room isn’t near half full. ;)

    I'd prefer patch. I already paid for Aliens. But I don't know if they could do that, because then they'd have to make it so that Aliens are in the base game? But I suppose they should have been? I'd be okay with that. IF they added a LOT more game-play and more clothing, etc.

    I wasn't on the forums then. What happened? How are they different now?

    I agree! I mostly like my characters to look the same all the time.

    Whew this is a tough one. It’s been awhile but off the top of my head they eliminated the alien pregnancy a sim would get after woohoo with an alien (limiting it to only abductions), they heavily decreased the frequency of abductions even though it was already a rarity, they decreased the chance of aliens spawning in the over world. Might have missed some things, but aliens already weren’t a very in-depth occult from GTW and they nerfed them to have even less presence in the game.

    I would like an alien pack
    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims
  • lisamwittlisamwitt Posts: 3,836 Member
    Yes
    I said yes (to a patch). But, all I really want is the ability to get rid of the disguise all together like I can with dark form and for aliens who never use a disguise to not get "discovered". It ruins relationships and is stupid if you never hid what they were.

    only as a free update to get to work
    id be even more angry if they made "alien stuff" out of it
