First, i'll say this. Based on my current understanding of what the pack is like (from much reading and youtube videos) I don't think I can justify paying $29.99 (CAD) for the new GP when it seems to be ..... more so than not... just a large stuff pack of build/buy items that pretty much only makes sense in the only world you can't build in.
Plus the spellcasters, aliens, and vampires can't use their occult powers in the new world of Batuu. And though you can use all the build items in all the other worlds.... apparently the new CAS items are limited to Batuu.
This has me a bit confused about the new GP. The sims team designed the new GP so that the CAS only works in one area of the game... and the build/buy items only work in a completely different area of the game. I mean.... seriously?
Speaking of build/buy items.... that's where it's the most confusing. Why create a world about something as popular as Star Wars.... add a great list of Star Wars build/buy items..... then decide to not offer the opportunity to use those Star Wars items in the Star Wars world?
I don't know about anyone else.... but i'm not interested in building a Star Wars house in New Crest, or Brindleton Bay. Talk about out of place. It just won't fit in.
Why didn't the sim's team offer a lot for us to build on? It could of been maybe 2 lots over in the corner somewhere away from their Star Wars design.
When the sims team said the worlds would be getting smaller, I didn't think they meant worlds with no lots. One.... even just one would have made a huge difference when trying to justify the price tag.
