    Between the survey last year(?) and the hints at the end of the Nifty Knitting trailer (and yes, they were hints. I can't explain why I'm so certain they were hints, but they were hints) I'm fairly confident we'll get a winter activity/ski resort type pack within the next three to five packs.

    I'm hoping, based on what wasn't covered in the "don't expect" part of addressing the next pack, that this will be it, along with maybe some personality/trait overhauls (but that may be asking too much.)

    I think a whole EP centering around winter would be really lacking. So I hope it's vacation resorts, coming with a tropcial beach vacation world AND a wintery mountain world, a hotel/restort system as its new feature and lots of activities surrounding beach vacations and the snow :)

    I think combining a winter vacation theme with resorts would be perfect! They could include a small alpine world and a small tropical world, while allowing us to build and manage resorts in any world. I would really love a cozy ski resort with a giant fireplace where my Sims who don't want to ski or snowboard could just relax by the fire. I'm at a loss for what they could include as new skills in a tropical world, though, since Island Living has most of the interesting tropical gameplay already.

    I doubt we'll get more then one vacation destination in one pack. Maxis hasn't done it yet.

    Yes they have, with TS3 World Aventures (hope that was the correct EP title).

    And in their survey they mentioned a vacation EP coming with a wintery AND a beach vacation world. :)

    Well we already have a beach world but I"d take another if it added stuff Sulani left out. I'm hoping for that Brazillian Beach or Greek Beach Pack.

    Dying for another beach world too 🤤🤤🤤
    My dream is a beach city.

    Well, you might not have considered them vacation destinations, but they have. With one of those sims 3 EP's we got 3 worlds, an asian one and two others i cant recall right now , in one pack :)

    That was TS3 though not TS4. That was World Adventures. I meant TS4. I'd love multiple vacation destinations in one expansion pack in TS4 but I don't think Maxis will do it.

    Yeah. Grant basically told us before that they wouldn't do it.


    But then, Journey to Batuu is exactly what he is saying no to??

    Journey to Batuu doesn’t have 3 worlds. It only has 1 world (Batuu).

    Deep. Snow. (Seasons Patch).

    + More snow activities such as building igloos and skating on ponds/water.

    It would be an interesting theme, if there's enough there so it doesn't feel like a duplication of Seasons.

    That hot tub in the snow looks so cozy, which reminds me I rarely use the one we have in TS4. Might have something to do with the fact that it is a social activity hub and everyone joins in whether you like it or not.

    i agree i enjoyed seasons in sims 3

    I'd love that !! I miss snowboarding and Ice skating on frozen ponds in TS3. Skiing would be nice as well, and sledding.

    If they release Winter EP, I hope they add snow deformation update to those who own Season EP.
    When can we get The Sims 3 Remastered Complete Edition 64 Bit?

    Unless it had a yacht and winter destination with updated weddings. The yacht would be easily made with base game and a few differences, plus add on's to make it worth going to. The winter destination would also easily be made with exceptions to decor, a ski lift, skiing, picture taken on lift and booth to buy it, cabin decor, yeti, ski clothes, and various ski equipment. Weddings are already in game. Fix it to where Sims can direct paid help to actually go work like with stores. Loads of cakes, veils, dresses, rings, garters, bouquets, ect. Cake designers and wedding planners as jobs. Cakes and dresses are already there. Having a small one level mall with the wedding planner & flower/props shop, ring shop, dresses/tux/garter, and cake/bakery. More like what we use to get in the Sims3, but somehow I still dream.

    The difference would be that vacations in the past have only been a GP, not an expansion pack.

    Maybe water skiing, and surfing or boogie boarding. For a tropical world. Or how about a world with a big lake or river and house boats, maybe even with a slide into the water.

    They could even have a water water world with big slides and a wave pool.

    They haven’t given us amusement rides, or a zoo, or carnival stuff either.

    I just hope they give us a hotel type of lot that we can use in ANY world.

    Regarding hotels I hope so too. I want to place one in Sulani on that big empty 50x50 lot.
