Cottage Living Addons Ideas

«1
SuceressSuceress Posts: 1,679 Member
I know Cottage Living just came out so there's no rush for new stuff, but I would love to have some more farm stuff.
Sheep- They could be similar to llamas & since they produce wax on their wool, you could get some wax from them. Instead of spitting they could heatbutt people.
Goats- They could eat weeds, graze on grass/hay, and produce milk. They can also headbutt & hop around to play
Churning butter (I don't know if this is a thing, but when I googled I didn't see that it was possible to make butter)
Cheese (I've heard that you can make cheese but am not sure how & it would be neat to make different varieties of cheese)
Bulls- It would be nice to have a bull to produce calves or just keep the cows company
Horns on cows- yes, female cows can have horns. Most of my cows have had horns, although 1 of my current ones does not because her father was polled (hornless). When horned cows die, you can keep the horns to craft in to decorations or hang up somewhere.

I have more ideas but my brain is shutting down on me.

    Never heard of sheep wool producing wax, I am sure if they do the quantity is quite small, like ear wax. Sheep wool however is a natural fire repellant, we could make fire resistant carpets from it. Sheep also produce milk and the milk can be used to produce cheese and yoghurt.

    I do like the idea of sheep and goats, as well as these animals having the ability to produce offspring.

    Nectar and "mead" (beer) making.

    Grain crops for mead making

    Rustic pizza oven

    Goat for milk and sheep for wool

    Butter churner for butter making

    Tic-tac-toe for cows

    Composting pile or bin for manure

    Tractor

    Pretty much 100% picks of mine as well. Maybe not the pizza oven but not because I don't want it but because I'd put it in a different pack. Make that double on the butterchurn.

    Personally I would have added fairies (and werewolves tbh) originally in this pack as well but thats just me. They are part of the folklore of the British Isles and Ireland after all. It was such a missed opportunity.

    I'd add
      Activities
      • Apple Bobbing Tubs - Great addition for Halloween and the fairs that they have

      • Eating contests like we had in Sims 3 perhaps Pies, Hot Dogs, and Hot Wings another great addition for fairs and festivals

        maxresdefault.jpg
      • Golfing TBH I'd settle for mini golf or just a driving range but if they had managed a lot where you could hit a few rounds that would have been cool

        The Cotswolds are known for wool from the Cotswolds sheep. They should have put the Llama in the South American Pack

        My idea was they make the tiered plate holder and you choose the kind of tea sandwiches (two choices) which implies new tea sandwich recipes. Cucumber, Egg Salad, Ham & Swiss, Pimento Cheese, Roast Beef & Cheddar,Shrimp Salad, Smoked Salmon, Tuna Salad, and Watercress. . Then you pick the small or portioned baked goods (three choices)

      I wonder if the animals will act less like pets, too, eventually? I feel there's a difference between pets and livestock.

      But if we're going to add pigs, maybe add a butcher shop.
    • ChampandGirlieChampandGirlie Posts: 2,482 Member
      Horses for sure, I am guessing they decided that horses have a lot of unique gameplay.
      Sheep, maybe goats and pigs
      Butter churning
      High tea/tea sets
      If they want to be global, they could add loom-weaving which is historic and a craft in many parts of the world.
      Going with the English theme, croquet / cricket / rugby.
      Mediterranean agriculture; vineyards
      Milling grain (historic); crops
      Maybe an update to Outdoor Retreat with more to do / that fits the rustic theme.
      Champ and Girlie are dogs.
    • Gamer_34567544Gamer_34567544 Posts: 1,300 Member
      Horses definitely!
    • SuceressSuceress Posts: 1,679 Member
      I agree that horses would be cool. I think they might be a bit more complicated than an addon pack would allow. Probably should get their own pack-- Equestrian Adventures or something like that.

      The farmland mod introduces all of this and more.Sheeps,pigs,rabbitschickens and cows as well as horses.There is also a tractor to cultivate fields as well as water sprinklers and greenhouses.There is also a windmill and even a story to follow with quests.Sadly all the stuff can only be used in the new area that fused with brindleton map.But if you really want farm stuff combining it with cottage is the way to go.

      Do you have a link to this mod? I've seen videos of it but am not sure where to get it.

      More farm animals...ducks, goats, sheep, pigs...Horses for SURE. can either have a working Horse, show Horse, or just a pet. And DEFINITELY able to have babies with all included animals. I know chickens can have chicks, but a baby Llama/cow would be adorable. More interactions with toddlers/children, especially with the baby animals. Also, more color options. Like multicolored Llamas instead of just beige and white. And same with cows. Maybe different breeds? And multiple animals able to inhabit one shed, like maybe an option for a bigger shed. Add a working dog trait too possibly if you wanted to have a farm dog. A freelance career with filling orders for wool, milk, eggs, hand crafted items, and canning/pies would be kind of fun. I know there's plopsy, but an actual freelance career that took specific orders would be kind of fun for me personally.

      Although I do want more animals to be added, I would’ve also liked to see more mushroom themed build items/ different kinds of mushrooms besides the amanita. It would’ve been great for cottagecore builds.

      Mushroom options would be cool! Giant mushroom houses would be cute. Have a bunch of blue sims characters in white hats and pants. :P
      In all seriousness, being able to add mushrooms as decor or even have them be edible would be cool. I'd love to have the "chicken of the forest" mushrooms.

      And since not all cottages are in lush areas, it would be cool to have some desert themed ones with cacti and succulents. This could tie in with the prickly pear catci that produce pears, maybe the thorns could be made in to needles for sewing, and in real life the skins are harvested to make faux leather.

      I'd also love more variety in the looks for cows. I want cows with horns. I'd love to have one that looks like older cow and one that looks like her daughter (who is all grown up now). My older cow is a brahma jersey mix. She's red with a white spot on her forehead and very large horns. Her daughter is part Brangus and is black with white on her face.

      It would be fun to have options to have non-modern farms, like neolithic type farms and victorian type farms, with different aesthetics and tools.
