    Surprises are great and all... But can we just have a fricking Travel expansion? My Sims are dying to cheat on their partners with a French baker...

    LOL!!!! Sorry but I had a laugh that is so oddly specific.

    Just ONE French baker? All your sims with the same baker?

    WOULD LOVE IT if there were MORE stories packs like LifeStories, Pet Stories. Those honestly are the best versions. Would be terrific if expansion packs were created with that in mind. That would also respond to the comments re: the game being more geared towards teens than adults.

    Could be a school pack? They've never done that theme before and teen gameplay could be expanded upon. Or it could be a band pack?

    Oh yes that would be so nice! I always felt kids and teens remain under-utilized, even after Parenthood. (Another area under-utilized is mischief and the negative emotions like angry, embarrassed or tense, but I digress). In any case, I'm excited for a surprise and something new. My favorite packs are when they've gone different from Sims 3. Exception for Seasons - I mean Sims without Seasons is *gasp* :)

    Thanks for the update :)

    My guess for the expansion and game pack:
    EP: Farming, showtime or hobbies - (Prehaps a expansion like living large just a huge bunch of stuff)
    GP: Story based (like Strangerville), holiday (asian)

    not sure about any others...what do you guys think?

    I enjoy taking my Sims on holiday and would love another destination world or a hotel theme (that's been done before though, so IDK). I built a Spa on Sulani that I pretend is a spa hotel and take my Sim families to stay there over a weekend. The NPC Sims just wander into my hotel room b/c I cannot lock them out, so it doesn't work perfectly, but mostly it does. :)

    African safari world!!!! Pleeeeeeeease!!! Noooo I don't want farming - animals should roam free :) And BTWs, wouldn't an African theme be totally new for the Sims?

    As much as I'd love the above, I'm calling it. Asian inspired Ski Resort.

    1) Al Simhara is meant to be in Egypt

    2) We are talking about the people that modelled an afro after a cauliflower, because apparently there is no-one at EA with black hair and they apparently have no access to reference photos either.

    Can you imagine how offensively tone deaf their portrayal of an African setting would be?

    I would love to see a new occult-GP <3

    Keeping my fingers crossed for something new and exciting. Stay safe everyone, have been home with my little kiddo for 4+ weeks now. Have no idea when I will be able to update my mods and CC again but I will at least be able to watch Let's Plays with the newest content.

    A travel expansion would be AMAZING!!!! And just think of all the things you could add to build mode too!

    I can't wait for this. I wonder what we'll get for the new packs...
  • Hyper_KeyHyper_Key Posts: 26 Member
    I doubt it'll be anything i have wanted to see for years, so i am not exactly eager to spend 70 bucks on things that *might* be what i wanted but still isn't.
    EA has learned nothing. At this point i don't think they ever will.
    Personality overhaul? when?
    Gameplay overhaul? When?
    Bug fixes of BASIC game functions? WHEN???

    New game play is great, but some old stuff we must have must have. For example, I didn't like playing without seasons prior to its release. I hope we will be surprised with a pack like generations at some point. Possible new game packs could be a playable fashion designer career, academy awards play, a playable casino, and amusement park. Forgive me if any of those were done before in a prior game. I don't remember it. I wouldn't mind getting vacations with hotels and resorts or farming either.

    I go with Hotels, Cars with Garages and Babies with strollers

    Honestly, this quarantine has given me a new appreciation for devs

    I'm actually excited to know what the packs will be. Since we know nothing at all except that they'll be here in the next 6 months, there's still lots of space to be hopeful. I would love to have a farming expansion (for all of the ethically opposed people, I think farming in the sims would be pretty magical: no fertilisers except manure, we could just collect eggs from free range or coop chickens, butter and milk from cows, or even "magically" harvested meat that pops out of thin air but your pigs are just fine. It'd be very Sims 1: butter churn, grape crushing, pantries, egg collection and recipes that can only be made/improved with farmed produce).

    I can't think of anything totally new, unless they give us an Australian world? I'd go nuts for that - an Aussie coastal town, with bright sandy beaches and grassy suburbs, edged with eucalyptus forests - like a bright and modern Brindleton. What I wouldn't give for a eucalyptus tree in the Sims!

    There are still so many key features and massive improvements that could be given by recycling old elements:
    * Chemistry/attraction/turn-ons: this is my single greatest wish for Sims 4. I despise my sims who breed like hoofstock and couldn't give a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ if someone is male/female, slobby, perfectionist, intelligent, blonde or freakin' blue. It drives me nuts. They need preferences and dynamic relationships!!
    * Gypsy/Fortune Teller - I want this NPC back! The crystal ball and blind dates.
    * Hobbies - one true hobby, to flesh out personality
    * Soccer net and basketball hoops
    * Pool tables
    * Baking competitions
    * Butter churns
    * Grape crushing and juice making
    * Making potion ingredients in general
    * Werewolves - with the free roaming wolf if you have Pets
    * Penguin!
    * Burglar
    * Firefighters that visit your home
    * Aspiration failure and the flour sack
    * Bonehilda

    The list is endless, but these are off the top of my head.

    So if you take the pictures on the roadmap as a clue, because we all know EA did not include these without reason, then I would assume that the expansion pack revolves heavily on animals. There are animals everywhere you look on this map. I’m thinking more of a wildlife instead of farming theme due to the elephants and owls used and I could see activism coming to play very easily with this. Maybe a new career or two? Like a zoologist and an activist. As for game pack, no clue! I am assuming the stuff pack will be the community voted pack. I would very much like new animals introduced as long as they have depth to them and not like the shallow familiars. I’m starting to get pretty bored with sims 4 partly because of the closed world. I know that will not change with this series so I’m begging for something more stimulating for this game!

    Well, it's very interesting how the roadmap picture only show cats and no dogs. I think maybe some African safari type expansion pack might be next.

    I also think there might be a hint in the picture or the blog post that came with it. Something animal related could be coming when I look at the picture.

    Or maybe this is just wishful thinking? I hope to find out more soon.

    Any new updates? It's already more than a week after the last post. Can you share with us what are the themes of these packs are? The expected released dates? The upcoming patches with new & unique update especially on the Sims personality or at least the update on the existing tool (the terrain, stair)? I've thought that this is suppose to be a weekly update post. :|

    This was not meant to be a weekly thing... Last year we got the roadmap announcing 3 packs early april, then nothing until early june with the trailer for Island Living and the announcement for Moschino and RoM. I am pretty sure they'll be following a similar timeline this year.

    The only piece of "news" we might get soonish will be about the community stuff pack and the last round of voting.

    I’m super excited about the theme the team has chosen—I think it will be a surprise to many of you.

    Could it be cars ? Many people, me included, want them and ask for them but it would still be a nice surprise if we (finally) got them, as the team never really said yes or no. And at first they did not intend to have them In TS4 if they changed their minds that would be a nice surprise.
