    The welcome wagon fruitcake probably tastes really good.

    A good chunk of people may disagree with this, but Moschino and Nifty Knitting are great stuff packs - they're useful, too - especially as somebody who takes billions of screenshots in the game and knitting is a good freelance career.

    Moreover, Tiny Living is rather... um... useless? Anybody can build tiny homes, even with the base game, and besides, most furniture isn't even space-saving, for example the murphy bed takes a lot of space in a tiny home. This could've been the perfect opportunity to add bunk beds, mini-refrigerators (which can be attached to a counter) and the All-In-One Bathroom item which was in The Sims 3 Island Paradise and Movie Stuff. The only other thing coming with it is the ability to raise your skills faster - I can do it with cheats if I wanted to without owning TL.

    You must have the rare hidden trait that makes Sims like it!

    Something else I want to say is - what keeps me engaged in playing with families are the hiking in Mt. Komorebi and Festival of Youth. So basically, Snowy Escape is somewhat of a life-saver for me when it comes to family gameplay.

    Sims 4 moodlets are good. Whims aren't.

    I like how each game does things differently, I don't want this game to just be a copy paste of the old games

    Yes! If I want to play a Sims 2 or 3 style game, I already have those. I don't need Sims 4, 5 and beyond to be just a repeat of the older games.

    I’m glad RoM didn’t get too Harry Potter.

    Ive bought some kits myself, but I dont understand the line that theyre 'meant for niche audiences' like why would they try to appeal to the smallest amount of customers at a time instead of delivering major desires that most simmers want? I think its leftovers or things designed as microtransactions. I think its fine for people who want them, but the amount we have now is quite ridiculous.
    The Sims has currently lost its identity. Bring it back for TS5

    My controversial opinion is....I just enjoy actually playing the game. I've tried to build properties but I found it stressful and not fun at all and they all looked rubbish. Its probably just me, but I didn't find the game at all intuitive or user friendly when I tried to build, and I found it impossible to put a decent roof on anything. Its easier and more fun to just play.

    I think you'd be surprised by how many Simmers are just like you; "builders" are actually probably a minority of the player base.

    I don't mind that Kits have replaced Stuff Packs. However, I just don't understand why they aren't organized like the Packs in the Menu.

    Seasons is overrated. The holiday system is fun to play through once but even regular rain is annoying and gets in the way of good gameplay.
  • OnverserOnverser Posts: 3,364 Member
    I like how every world always has bars, they're a pretty important lot to have in any world for me as it gives my sims a reason to leave their house and meet the other townies. :)

    As someone who typically creates sims for my sims to marry, I don’t really care about an attraction system, nor do I think that romance needs some big overhaul.

    I don't create sims for my sims to marry, and even I agree with that sentiment. I decide who the Sims that I control are attracted to...I don't need the game to do it for me. I remember having to constantly use cheat codes in TS2 to get the Sims who I wanted together to be attractive to each other; I don't need that extra layer of annoyance in my game.

    That said, I'd like some kind of attaction system to be able to run where Sims I don't control are involved. And either way, adding it but providing toggles like they have for aging. (Played/unplayed, etc.) would work great and make everyone happy.

    @Stormkeep I struggled with that in the Sims 2, as well! Lol. I agree that an attraction system toggle would be great for everyone!

    I'm not all that excited for the wedding pack tbh, it should have been a base game update. But no, gotta slap a price tag on it because it's something that the fandom has been crying out for, for years at this point.
    Give our Vampires back their fangs!!! Reverse the Nerf!!! Occult simmers should not be shoved aside for the "realism players"! It's time Occult lovers/players started to demand equal treatment. #JusticeForOccults

    I want Get to Work, but I really don't want aliens.
  • GirafHuntrGirafHuntr Posts: 759 Member
    The attraction/chemistry system I get from mods is better than one by EA will be. I hope they don't add one because it might mess up what I am doing with the mods. :P

    If it helps, I've had Get To Work for years and I haven't run into any aliens without having to try very hard to find them :lol:

    I have had Get to Work since it came out and only "saw" an alien one time with one Sim. I know they're out there though. Mulder told me.

    No, seriously, the reason I know they are out there is that occasionally one of my sims gets a moodlet indicating they met an alien. Never figured out who it was though. :lol:

    Aliens in TS4 are in 'disguise' most of the time. The one time I did see one is because my Sim got abducted. I haven't done the scientist career yet though. I imagine if you do that Live career you'll see aliens at some point.

    You can use mods to disable aliens entirely though if you get the pack and just want them gone gone.
