    I think it should be expansion pack for a mainline Sims game. It could be like Into the Future, just reversed. TSM was okay, but it wasn't a very strong Sims game or RPG.

    I just recently started playing this game so it might be too early for a yes or no from me. I like the old game a lot, and even if it was pimped I'd probably just play the old. I actually find it quite relaxing that I don't need to (can) adjust too much. I don't need to repaint the exterior and I'm fine with upgrading the interior without even being able to adjust the floor plan. I fancy the dolls house approach with just one wall removed.

    I also like that I don't really need to care much about skills. In my TS4 I want to have skills, but they take lots of my focus, and in TSM I can focus on other stuff.

    What I would like to see adjusted is access to more household members. At least the spouse. I don't care if spouse is hardly at home, but I so often miss a simple way to bring him/her home. I'm fine with not controlling the kids. I'd also want a better way to age up kids, but I understand the chosen one will grow up if child of dead Hero. It will feel weird if siblings stay kids forever. I already sent a child to "servant the Watcher" or whatever it said, and that kid has been showing up in the village later, not just letters/money in the mailbox. Will the kid stay a child also during next generation Hero, and the next?

    I also would like to know if two Heros dies, will two of their children replace them, or will only the first Hero be replaced by kid and the others sent away? And what if the Hero replacement A dies, will A be replaced by the sibling B or only by A's own kids? Some things are good to know without needing to experiment with unsaved game.

    So - administrating the households would be my biggest issue with TSM, I guess that could be added through a "refreshment" if not a remake.

    Yes - BUT, please let us build our own kingdom. I'd also love horses, and dragons.

    Sims Medieval was my favorite spin-off and I still play it every once in a while! I feel like if they did a 2, theres so many things they could change and add to make it even better than the first one. I've done historical saves in my game before, but there was just something nice about having a medieval game separate from everything else, you know? I also think that it'd be great to have a game set in another time period, if people didn't want another Medieval.

    I am completely ambivalent when it comes to The Sims Medieval, not that I dislike the idea.

    Yep, I agree. I think having another spin-off game set in another period would be fun too. Or an entire spin-off for a scifi/aliens setting? It could still have dragons, maybe even a Mecha Godzilla kind of pet...)

    To my understanding, that is pretty much how The Sims Medieval began development - as an Expansion Pack for TS3. But the project expanded until it was spun off as its own thing. Unused assets got repurposed for Dragon Valley and the Duke of Bows Renaissance Festival, later in the TS3 lifespan.

    I am not sure a TSM built on TS4's software architecture would tickle me or not. I do still play the old game, from time to time.

    I never played TSM, but I've watched some gameplay videos and love making medieval builds in TS4. What I think would be especially awesome in a modern TSM would be to have different worlds based on different time periods or cultures. Don't just stick to medieval. Give us an ancient Roman world, an early medieval Norse world, a high medieval French world, a world set in the medieval Middle East, etc. Let us tell all kinds of historical stories instead of just one.

    I would love for them to make a sequel but I can't imagine they will, unfortunately. This game didn't do that well, and since it only ever got one expansion before they stopped working on it, they'll likely focus all their time on The Sims 4 and (eventually) 5. However; I'm one of the few that LOVES this game. While it's not The Sims, and many feel it's just slow and boring... I think if they did it right... Sims Medieval 2 COULD be really good. Assuming they listen to their fans (which we all know Maxis isn't amazing at doing) LOL

    For me... I would love to see a faster way to travel (horseback, maybe even running or jogging). The slow walk around the kingdom is really annoying, and while you can fast forward... that's fine, but time is still not on your side. I'd like to get places faster without fast forwarding so I have more time in my day to do things. Sometimes walking to the village for supplies is an event in itself.

    I'd also like to see more needs to take care of. I really dislike how we only have Hunger and Energy, and everything else is just tied to focus. Plus more family and quests to control multiple Sims. This game has such a SLOW start. Individual quests where you just control ONE Sim gets boring quickly. If they could just have a family right away, or all quests had you control multiple heroes... that would have made this game so much better.

    I like Sims Medieval, which is why I couldn't fathom EA making a Medieval 2 and not making a plum pudding out of it.

    I see your point. There's no way they wouldn't try to make it TS4 but medieval or something. :-/

    I believed you could play as other things beside the monarch? The other heros sims beside the monarch you can play as: the knight, the healer, a merchant, a blacksmith a bard, a spy, a wizard/Sorceress and either of the two priests.

    But I think they could have turned it into more of a life-simulator. Like when healer's, Merchants' or blacksmith's children (like male children if the sim is male unless you change the rules) are child-age they can be apprentice to another smithery or merchant or healer in town. And knights (depending on how the kingdom is run) can send their of-age children to learn to be a page, then a squire then a knight. And I think a medieval life-sim spin off would be the only reasonable excuse for them to put arranged marriage in the game. (note: only children and up can be bethrothed)

    of course the way that the rules would be set would be how you set it up.. if you want female children to become knights and others you go!

    I like just sticking to the sim medieval, but I would still give the second one a chance if they made a sims medieval 2.
    BACK TO THE FUTURE!!!
