    Makes 🌺🌺🌺🌺 sense.

    The color palette isn't my favorite--gives off barbie dream house vibes. Oh well, hopefully some plain swatches will be included.

    No!!!!!!!!!!! :s I really didn't care for this one at all yet I liked both of the others.

    Same. It looks like Barbie's dream sewing room to me, but oh well. I voted Happy Haunts anyway.

    I agree on the Barbie comment. I was hoping knitting would be a little like sewing from Sims 2 because I loved those customisable outfits. I would love to see Happy Haunts as a gamepack though.

    This is the one I was hoping would win. Hopefully they include some neutral colors as well but overall, I’m happy it won.

    It remindes me of my boring Home Ec sewing class back in the day.

    As I predicted... The stereotypes are very strong in the modern society.

    At the same The Sims is a game for everybody so everyone has the right to get their favorite content in the game even if some people don't like it.

    Granny stuff, girly stuff or neutral stuff... honestly I don't care about this pack.

    I don’t care about the knitting aspect of it, but I am looking forward to the new Buy/Build mode objects. I hope the industrial/neutral theme wins! It’ll do wonders for my Sim’s homes I think.

    Don't dream, pink girly room will win.

    Well this is pleasantly surprising! I genuinely thought that Granny Chic was going to win but I'm so glad that it didn't :sweat_smile:

    I was hoping for either this or Cozy Craft so I don't mind the result at all. I get what some are saying about 'Barbie vibes' because I see it too, so I hope that any neutral swatches for the furniture are plentiful as I quite like the style of furniture but I'm personally not fond of an entire room of pastels.

    The only thing that I disliked (pretty much with all the concepts) was the CAS style, which I'm not a huge fan of - It's going to be interesting to see what ideas they present us with in that regard.

    Yes!!! Now I only hope a workign rocking chair will be included.

    The yellow chair in the corner looks a little bit like a rocking chair. I really hope a working rocking chair will be included, too, with a creaking sound like in Sims 3.

    I voted for Granny Chic, but I'm glad this one won, too. To be honest, I was torn between DIY and Granny. This would have been my second choice, and I think DIY is perhaps a more versatile style than Granny, especially for those of us who don't play with elder sims that often. But I hope they give us a rocking chair, I think that would be a good compromise.

    I remember years ago my little toddler niece was fascinated by the wooden rocking chair that we had. I had to gently tell her not to put her fingers underneath the rockers! She said to her mom "Auntie say to me be careful with the rocking chair" It was so cute because she was completely absorbed in figuring out how it worked!

    I'm looking forward to the next round of voting, and choosing specific objects.

    I'm not wrong though? Most of that furniture is pretty neutral. A barbie house would have pink closets, pink desk, pink rug, pink floor, pink everything.

    I really think that this option is the best for those of us who wanted a more generic "Crafting Hobbies" pack than a specific knitting pack. While this is just an art style, there are several items in here (and in Cozy Craft) that would work for a pretend "sewing" room or even generic "Crafting" room.

    We may only be getting Knitting as a gameplay option, but we can (hopefully) at least deck out a crafting room in hopes of future crafting hobbies. (Sewing?? - barely even requires new animation for the sim, because the sims will just sit there with their hands more or less in place as the fabric progresses through the machine... Okay, fine. Just knitting for now.)

    Not to mention Dave has said that there will be swatches for everything... presumably, even the walls.

    Exactly. At least I know I'll be able to use these assets in things other than knitting, on a lot of houses.

    That's great. Always a good idea to mix in a couple neutrals/ plain swatches.

    If we even get wall textures... I'm pretty sure both of those colors are already available in base game as plain wall paint. I'm confident the green is. (I almost never do pink.)

    At this point I don't remember any of the choices, but believe I voted for Granny Chic. I think DIY was my second choice. Its a nice style, and I'll probably use a lot of the stuff from the pack, being heavily into arts & crafts (including knitting) myself. Not too fond of pastels, pink in particular, so hope there will be some other colours to choose from (please, let there be some choices of nice green tones!)

    Wasn't the one I voted for, but I did like them all so it's okay :smile:
  • verlainemverlainem Posts: 553 Member
    I wasn't a fan of the CAS look but love the craft room - it's kind of what I would love for my paper crafting room (I think it should be in an update). I do hope for some muted tones for less colourful sims lol

    I'm curious to know if the pink color influenced the vote...

    Pink choices won twice.

    I picked DIY despite the pink, not because of it. It's really only the one wall and a bit of trim. The trim I can handle (if it isn't changed in swatches) and the wall can be changed - if it's even included.

    I picked DIY for the modern craft room feel of the Build/Buy items (The table, the peg board with thread, and the wheeled cart most especially.)

    I voted DIY but not for the pink. I chose it because it looked the most versatile. I can pretend my sims are doing crafts other than knitting. Would be great if we get a variety of colors to suit different players' styles

    I was hoping this one would win even though I voted for a different one without seeing the previews first. :D
