edited June 29 in Off Topic Chat
This is just examples of things I would love from past iterations of the Sims to be in the Sims 5. I had to separate and add in the comments suggested Gardening plants as well as Cooking & Baking recipes. I have also added things id like to see for sims 5 that aren't apart of any game so far. SCROLL SLOWLY PLEASE AND ADD YOUR COMMENTS

Sims 1
  • The whimsy
  • The creative NPC's - especially the roving musician from the restaurant, the organ grinder guy with monkey, the saxophonist, the obsessed fan all of these NPC's had flavor and enhanced the areas they were in
  • The Superstar neighborhood I liked its general feel.
  • The Cake Dancer
  • The Ice Cream Parlor & The Candy Store with all the associated Build/Buy pieces to make it work

Sims 2
  • The best details in terms of the Sim's involuntary actions (like shielding the eyes in bright sun). More small details like this would be great
  • The memory system
  • The attraction system - Turn Ons, Turn Offs They can do basically the same ones
  • The Western Zodiac
  • The cut scenes for huge life events
  • The traits seemed to have more impact like messy Sims didn't make their beds
  • Setting climates for each neighborhood so they made sense
  • The had the best functioning hotels - TBH Island Living had a nice resort system too but it was so late in the game and would have been better than the hostels in WA. Hotel Desk, Locking Doors, Maid Service, Concierge activities, Room service, shuttle service
  • Stable restaurants - Family could have job positions, plus the table interactions, the roving musician
  • The Hair Salon
  • Pet Jobs
  • The Upright Piano for smaller homes. Love, Love, Love the grand pianos but some house builds require something smaller
  • The Newspaper, The Paperboy/Girl, the births and obits, the crossword puzzle, The Horoscope. The chasing of paperboy/girl by dog
  • Interests - Sims Child through Adult and dogs and Cats all had interests appropriate to them
  • Bon Voyage - Camping area activities
  • Bon Voyage - The Zen Garden
  • Purchasing jewelry
  • The Hobbies and their enthusiasm - can work with clubs but the enthusiasm was a nice touch
  • Pet Store - Grooming Tub, Trainer, the actual store assets
  • Parrots, Cockatoos - Training them and getting them to speak and giving them treats
  • The cage for the smaller birds was the best the Sims has ever done
  • The 3 universities instead of two
  • Juicing
  • The Carpool, the Bus for kids - you could even see the driver honking
  • The garden judging for the garden club
  • The Private schools - (different uniforms, types of schools and their bonuses) and the Headmaster scenario because a level of difficulty in order to get into private schools should be there.
  • The witch alignments (neutral, good, bad, very good, Very evil)
  • Retail experience was better, you could even see simoleans changing hands, the changing rooms, the generic radio stations,
  • Car Lots - where you can purchase automobiles
  • Sims 2 had the best weddings (only because Sims 4 messed up their wedding pack) and you could plan for a honeymoon that a Limousine took you to.
  • Chess Tournaments those need a comeback
  • The Jump Rope, Exercise Bike and Chin up Bar
  • The functional garage doors for gasp! garages and driveways
  • The fabulous awning tool and the Wrought Iron and Glass Awning from Apartment Life
  • Playing Marco Polo in the pool
  • Tai-Chi and Mahjong
  • Tea ceremony
  • Sewing and Pottery Making
  • Trimming bushes, pulling weeds- The Gardener had more to do
  • Writing Books - The process was far more clever where you could pick amongst thought bubbles and sort of figure out what the book was about
  • Bird watching from Free Time
  • The Yo-yo & Juggling
  • The Lemonade stand
  • The Skunk, The Raccoon and most importantly the Alpha Wolf
  • The different greetings for the different social groups
  • Tuning Instruments
  • Winding the grandfather clock and it chimes
  • The food contests
  • The Putting green
  • The Elevator Build pieces
  • Being able to see and change the style of ceilings

Sims 3
  • Open World
  • Color Wheel - and more channels to choose for color and patterns
  • CAS Hair color being divided by root, shaft and ends
  • Create a Pattern
  • The Gorgeous neighborhoods - the detail work and variety of the neighborhoods was the best its been in Sims 3
  • Cemeteries
  • Weather, Temperature and Seasons - Only better than Sims 4 because it has Fog, Hail and Deep Snow
  • The Moon cycle
  • The Town Center where the Seasonal festivals were held. They were better than all the fairs Sims 4 had
  • Generations & Supernatural almost everything was perfect. The Vampires were better in Sims 4 though
  • The Fairies & Werewolves
  • World Adventures - (minus the hostels, See Sims 2 Hotels), the adventure aspect was great fun, the countries were gorgeous, camels in Egypt was a missed opportunity, the mummy, Archeologist as a career was also a missed opportunity
  • Nectar Making was excellent in World Adventure. I'd even keep the grape varietals
  • Vacation Homes
  • Cars - the car alarm, the radio, setting ownership, teaching teens to drive, parking "wink", Parking Spaces
  • The Ice Cream Man - I don't mind the food stalls I just dont want them in place of proper bricks and mortar lots
  • Horses, Horseback Riding, the Horse barns and Unicorns
  • The Rabbit-holes - But ONLY for specific places and the actual buildings must be shown - Town Hall & Courthouse, Military Base but not the obstacle course, The High school, The Private Schools, The Warehouse, The Volcano Base, The University classrooms but not the Student center or labs and lecture hall. The Office Building, The Hospital, The interior of the Equestrian center but not the obstacle course, The Fortune Teller's Caravan ((I loved the music), The Science Lab and Observatory, the police station, The movie theatre but not the lobby
  • The Mermaids were better in terms of playability based on all the cool dive spots and the hidden island
  • Firefighters and the firehouse
  • Police, Burglars, Burglar alarms
  • Being able to swim in almost all bodies of water
  • Skating on frozen lake
  • Scuba Diving including deep diving. Sims 4 cheaped out on this to their shame.
  • The Deer
  • Martial Arts - The different belt colors, the sparring, the equipment, the martial arts school. All wonderful
  • The Snake Charming - Needs a comeback in the next desert area
  • The Scooters from World Adventure
  • Gem cutting
  • The Subways & the Lightning Leap Atomic Molecular Arranger that bear a striking resemblance to the TARDIS
  • The cleverly named scholarships for university
  • Houseboats, watercraft and boats of all kinds
  • The Magic Store
  • Doorbells and changing their chime
  • Pool Tables and their associated hidden skill and the tricks
  • The Life Skills Books - Fire Safety, Parenting, etc.
  • Trick O'Treat
  • Elders using canes
  • Bands
  • The Showtime Magicians
  • The bachelor parties with the dancers
  • Flowers and allergies during the spring months
  • Being also to change flame color in fireplaces
  • Setting color and intensity for lights a detail Sims 4 has as well
  • Doorbells and being able to change the chime
  • Spiral stairs, Modular staircases, Grand Staircases, Sliding down banisters
  • Composting
  • The Green House Roof - I actually like this roof for Grand conservatories and solariums in mansions. I like the basic Sims 2 version for small homes
  • The Festival Items - Apple Bobbing Tub, The Face Painting Booth, The Food Stalls for Seasonal Festivals, Kissing Booth, Love Tester Machine, The Food eating contests.
  • Prom
  • The Ghost's differing colors & Ghost Hunting
  • Sims 2 & 3 had better pet gear
  • Sketching, Sculpture work, Glassblowing, Photography
  • The achievements for skills and collecting beyond getting skill level 10
  • The Amusement park - It was a good lot. To make it really awesome it would have had to had a ferris wheel and more Midway games
  • The Geisha Statuette from the Sims 3 store. Not that I want this item back per se (Although I wouldn't complain about it) more that I liked the detail.

Sims 4
  • The Vampire Pack - The vampire were superior to past vampires from everything to their powers and weaknesses, the detail stuff like making garlic wreaths and chains and bringing back the coffins and other tropes from folklore and the movies. I even love the Bleh! Seriously if they had the cape thing Bela Lugosi did I'd love it all the more. I would have loved it if they had brought back the Vampire specific Eclipsing Fog from Sims 3 but I would have had that fog protect the vampires in daylight.
  • The Veterinary Clinic - Illnesses and injuries
  • Holidays, Event Planning, Holiday Traditions all were fabulous - Do that again
  • Loved the clubs those were great
  • The variety of fairs and cultural festivals - Sims 3 did the seasonal festivals better by far but variety is the spice of life and exploring other cultures is quite fun. The food selections were good and adding them to the potential restaurant menus was a good idea
  • Separating Cooking from Baking - Baking should have been a base game skill.
  • The Restaurant Menu - this was a nice touch. It just needed to be tweaked so courses came out properly. Being able to add to the menu and setting it to create restaurants with different cuisine is always the right thing.
  • Lot Traits - I hope in future they have strong impacts for lots this can help make visiting different lots more unique.
  • Hats separate from hair
  • The Voice Modulation
  • Spa Day was great - Everything about it was fabulous ESPECIALLY after you added Manicures and Pedicures.
  • Setting the holiday decorations for the outside with the little decoration box
  • Setting the phones ring tone
  • Trimming the Tree
  • The multiple outfits one can plan in the different types of clothing
  • The Pipe Organ. Love, Love, Love it! In future it needs pipe build pieces for really grand builds. And to play
  • The walk styles
  • The Familiars Fabulous Idea I just wish they could do more
  • Hiking
  • The Water effects - ducks, reeds, bugs etc.
  • The Skating Rink - I love setting up the lights, effects and music.
  • Cooking the grand meal for holidays. I'd definitely keep that but maybe add to it with international dishes over time
  • Rock Climbing
  • Snowy Escape - The Winter Sports - would have been better in a European Ski Town. So that the Japanese aspects could have been better
  • Snowy Escape - The Bath House, Kotatsu, the hot pot
  • The mermaids were better in the Sims 4 because of their new powers. They were also somewhat prettier
  • Snorkeling - I think it had its place WITH Scuba not in place of it.
  • The sub sections of career paths
  • Setting the table
  • The holiday themed door mats. I love doormats and change mine often for the time of year or for holidays
  • The Holiday Garland and the mistletoe
  • Patchy the Strawman - I love that the Sims 3 version had him doing silly dances and scared Sims
  • Pet clothing
  • Knitting, and the needle point
  • The bird feeder I would have given the clean interaction because birds love to poop on their feeders. Also they are making feeders now that have little string lights on the inside of it ran by solar power. Glows at night.
  • I liked the vacuums and dust as a concept. The execution needed work.
  • The Snowy Thunderstorm, Monsoons, Acid Rain

New things in the Sims 5 I'd love to see

  • Rain Gear and Cold Weather Wear being separate outfits
  • Sunglasses and they should be an inventory type item so that they can be put on when its bright and hot
  • Eye patches, monocles, pince-nez
  • Vocal Accenting in addition to voice modulation. American Southern vs English. California Valley Girl vs French. Spanish vs New Yorker
  • I'd like to be able to set rings on more than one finger
  • I'd like to see dental as a customizable category. Vampires in Sims 4 could choose their fang style why not everyday Sims? A single gold tooth, braces, or what have you.
  • Body hair as Base Game
  • Most beard and facial hair should be available via Base Game and downloads during the first year
  • Tattoos and Piercings as Base Game
  • Preferences should be in the Base Game and they should be as follows Favorites and Dislikes.
  • Basic Fingernails & Toenails being in the base game. I can wait until a Spa Day style Game Pack come for customization or even have different styles and colors added with EP's for example Werewolf claws or Vampire fingernails
  • Sims 2 had a system called Interests for Sims and pets. The amount of points you had in a particular interest influenced how often you engaged, thought or talked about it. The points should be replaced with sliders and the set Interests can be anything between 0 and 5 max interest. The interests should not be choices that are in the favorites/dislikes.
  • Dietary choices should not be a personality trait and waste a slot. They should be separate choice that all Sims get. Omnivore, Vegetarian, Vegan. Food Favorites and dislikes will come from all available food options once this is selected. So a vegan won't have steak as a Dislike or Favorite because they don't eat animal products, but using the remaining food choices they love Vegan lettuce wraps but Dislike Vegetable soup.

Favorites/Dislikes - Since most people have more likes than dislikes. Favorites will have more options. EXCEPT Grumpy or Evil Sims who will have fewer Favorites and more dislikes.
  • Activity
  • Book Genre
  • Color
  • Flower
  • Food
  • Movie Genre
  • Music
  • Pet - Dog, Cat, Birds, Horses, Small Mammals, Reptiles, Insects, Loves All Animals, Hates Animals
  • TV Genre
  • Vacation Zone - Amusement Park, Asian Destination, Casino, Desert, Forest, Jungle, Modern City, Mountain Ski Lodge, Old World City, Tropical Island
  • Weather - Dark & Stormy, Foggy, Snowy, Hot & Dry, Sunny & Cool, Sunny & Warm, Thunderstorm

  • Dogs and cats in the Base Game. I'm cool with them being a tad limited on what they can do at first as long as they are always considered in subsequent EP and Game Packs. If they are Base Game, then the same CAP that made them can make other kinds of animals like a raccoon or a fox with less fuss. Then in order to differentiate the new animal species from cats and dogs its just a few new animations, interaction and sounds.
  • Significant height difference in dogs. Sizes should be Toy, Small, Medium, Large, Xtra Large. Great Danes should not be the same size as Labradors.
  • Vaccinations, Micro-chips, pet licensing, Teeth cleaning, Heartworm medication all at the Vet Clinic
  • Pet jobs should provide outfits for the pet to switch to on their way to work. They should also get a carpool.
  • When a Spa Day type pack comes along it includes grooming for pets. Including painting the nails on paws. At a separate facility of course. If the Spa Day is done like the one in Sims 4 plus a bit of pet bathing and fur drying at a Groomers that should totally be worth the money.
  • It would also be nice to be able to knit or sew new clothes for the pets. If they are Base Game all sorts of things will apply to them.
  • I would make a Pets Game Pack that focuses on Birds and the small pets. So all the cute bird interactions from Sims 2. The bird stand for the parrots and other pet birds. If you have this pack AND a Get To Work style pack then you get the Pet Shop.
  • Best in Show and the obstacle courses as contests
  • Cats watching parrots and parrot stressing out
  • Two words - Dancing Cockatoo
  • Having a Parrot, Cockatoo or Cockatiel should have different game play than if you have a falcon
  • Small birds like Love birds should be slightly less game play that the Parrots etc. and falcons
  • I would love one of those little spheres for hamsters and guinea Pig to run around in


  • Frankly in a Sims 5 pack if you just rinse-repeat the Sims 4 Vampire Pack with the added ability of being able to duel other creatures. That would be a bonus. Oh and Im not sure if this was really a thing but it should be.
  • I would honestly love the "Nosferatu" Shadow.
  • I'd like it Vampires could change into the Man-Bat for like in Bram Stoker's Dracula and command the rats
  • Unable to see their reflection in the mirror
  • It would be cool if Vampires could gain a pet like a Vampire Bat
  • I think that Evil Vampires should have an evil aura that makes floral arrangements wilt
  • Moonbathing - I got this idea from another Simmer but it reminded me that this was on the Adams Family
  • Vampire Babies and children should have Gothic themed furniture and toys

  • The Witch familiars from Sims 4 were cool but I wish they were capable of doing more and interacting with the Witch. Being able to pet a familiar would be a great start. If its a cat or dog they should get interesting powers too.
  • Vampires, Witches, and the folks who are in the Fortune Teller career should be able to do Alchemy with greater speed and success.
  • The Witch powers from Sims 4 were a touch boring. Why not have them do things with more pizzaz like more enchantments kinda like an upgrade but on objects that aren't upgradable like a broom for instance that sweeps by itself. Enchanted Dolls, Enchanted Candles, Enchanted Jewelry all great suggestions.
  • Personally I'd divide Spellcaster spells into Enchantments, Divination, Practical Magic, Defensive Spells, Offensive Spells, Healing Spells, Hexes/Curses. Each spell has an alignment and the more you use a particularly aligned spell the more you become that alignment. Just like in Sims 2
  • Witches and Fortune Tellers ONLY should be able to both use Crystal Balls, Tarot Cards, Gris Gris Bags, Magic Candles and the Voodoo Dolls
  • Magical babies should have magical themed Nursery items

  • Paracelsus promoted the idea that the four elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Air) had four elemental spirits associated. Water - Undines, Earth-Gnomes, Fire-Salamanders, and Air - Sylphs. Later people took these ideas and applied them to other folklore. Undines became Mermaids. Now leaving the Mermaids aside for the moment that leaves the other three. Sylphs we often compared to fairies. Taking this information we can play with the lore and divide the three elements among fairies. Evil Spriggans can have fire powers and fire themed wings. Fairies can choose to specialize in the one of the other two elements and their powers, coloring, wing style and general esthetic can be formed from that.
  • Fairies can and should retain the inspirational powers they received in Sims 3 as well as their fun loving and trickster ways but why not play with other folklore concepts to make them feel new.
  • Fairies who select the earth element will have an affinity to Plant Sims and share their positive influences on plants
  • Certain traits should prohibit the creature from being certain things like an Evil Sim could never be a good witch. Evil Sims who are Fairies are automatically Spriggans.
  • Fairy babies and children should have fairy inspired furniture and toys

  • If we went with the above idea Mermaids and Fairies would have an affinity towards each other.
  • Mermaids should add comb hair to their actions as in folklore they do that a lot
  • Mermaids should have a little mini quest to find a trident
  • Mermaids should be able to do the hula dance naturally
  • Mermaid babies and children should have mermaid inspired furniture and toys

Werewolves At the time of my writing this I have only the livestream to go on
  • Love the Were-bies before turning. That was inspired in Sims 4
  • I think an Iron box to place out of control werewolves would have been awesome
  • Scars being separate CAS assets AWESOME!!!!
  • Body Hair as Base Game
  • Snout and Ear length should be customizable
  • The painful looking transformation is awesome
  • There should always be new traits for creatures. You really slacked in Sims 4
  • I liked the lore in Sims 4 with the established packs but you should be able to make your own.
  • I would love an outfit like Marsha's from The Howling

Miscellaneous Occult Ideas
  • Different creatures having natural affinities or aversions to one another. Good Witches get along with nice Fairies. Spriggans (bad fairies) liking bad witches. Vampires disliking Werewolves naturally, etc. It adds to the drama
  • The different creatures being able to use their powers to duel against one another like Vampires against witches. Etc
  • Only those in the Fortune Teller Career should be read Tea Leaves and Palms
  • Fortune Tellers can create Star Charts to sell to Sims
  • It's looking like that Swims 4 is going to have an awesome Werewolf pack. Given the Pack art I'd like scars in this pack as well please.

  • Being able to get higher degrees in the University - Masters & Phd. Higher pay and better positions with better education. Traditional changes to Cap and gown styes
  • Child and Teen Sims get the ability to go to Private Schools and are the ones previously establish in Sims 2 with the same colors of uniforms

  • Some careers should impart a title or rank, visible to players in the character screen. Mayor, General, Officer, Sergeant, Detective, Doctor, Fire Marshall, The Honorable (for judges), esq. for Attorneys, Professor, Agent for spies, for example.
  • Medical Career should have these paths - Medical Doctor, Nurse, Dentist, Psychotherapist, Veterinarian. All should convey the title of Dr. except the nurse.
  • Detectives should have two paths - Police Detective, Private Detective
  • Certain Personality traits should influence specific career paths. Insane + Scientist = Mad Scientist, Evil + Criminal = Mastermind, Evil + Espionage = Rogue Agent
  • If you own a business you should be business owner or something similar (restauranteur or florist etc.) instead unemployed as a career
  • Archeology as a career

  • The dancing skill to not only impart proficiency with each level BUT to add a new style of dance. Tango, Salsa, Tap etc.
  • Baking and cooking skills separate and both in the Base Game
  • Perfume creation
  • Cleaning as a hidden skill again. I like the idea of being able to be quicker and more effective upon experience.
  • Jewelry making
  • The Life skills should make a comeback but you have to take the class and pay for it rather than just reading books. Fire Safety, First Aid, Parenting, Anger Management, etc.
  • Alchemy should go back to being separate from a Witches Spell casting. However only Fortune Tellers, Witches or Vampires can learn it.
  • Hidden skills are fun I like the idea of a Sim getting better at a game or activity over time.

Gardening and Flower Arranging moved to its own Comment

  • Armillary Sphere
  • Astrolabe
  • Attics, basements, sub-basements, ceilings, closets, Laundry Rooms (Washers & Dryers) Modular Staircases, Pantries and pools, all base game at time of release. It is a pain to retrofit these into existing building. Besides having all of the necessary building tools will greatly benefit the Game builders in the creation of future neighborhoods. Please don't release a game that doesn't have these in good working order.
  • Birdbaths with bird animations and four interactions - Fill, Empty, Clean, Watch birds

  • Fire Detectors that have ceiling placement
  • Fortune Teller booth would be great at a potential Amusement Park. Not in place of the Fortune Teller.
  • Garage workbench build sets

  • Gingerbread House kit. For Haunted Halloween House and the traditional one at Christmas
  • Please make Greenhouses have both the basic boxy style and the grander roof style from the Sims 3 store. That way huge public conservatories can be built on community lots or small sunrooms on a back porch

  • Lighted Topiaries
  • Built in Makeup Vanity for bathroom builds
  • Metal Detectors
  • Microwaves that can be built into cabinetry
  • Night Club stuff - Velvet Ropes for bar Bouncers, Go-Go cages like Sims 1 House Party, Smoke machines, DJ Booths, Dance Flooring, Disco ball, Nightclub dance floor lighting, smoke machines
  • Lighted Stove Exhausts/vents
  • Nightlights for children and give the lights some sort of passive affect like soothing the child
  • The Pantry - Cabinet to store dry goods. Sugar, Flour, Dried Herbs and spices, Salt, Pepper, Canned Goods, Olive Oil, Vinegar

  • Shampoo Sink for Hair Salons
  • Water Cooler for gyms or Private Detective Agency
  • Coffered Ceilings - with the ability to change the color on the trim and the squares
  • Ceiling Murals
  • Spiral Staircases

Buy/Build- Upgrades and Details
  • Being able Set Staircase Railings individually - because it makes it weird when they are inside walls like in Sims 4.
  • Being able to add Lighted Garland to staircase banisters and rails
  • Often Missed Surfaces for Decorative Items - Mantle places, piano, Hearth front of the fireplace, tops of book cases unless very tall, should all have spots we can place decorative items. The hearth front on most fireplaces should have a spot for tongs or wood for the fireplace. Mantles should at least be able to have a few decorative items.
  • I'd really like the Doorbells back. I want to be able to change the chimes too. My security system irl actually has special ones for holidays. I'd like that please as well as mood types like Ode to Joy, spooky or gong.
  • I would like a fireplaces to have the Sims 4 upgrades, but the automatic turn on should only be automatic in fall/winter.
  • All fireplaces that have mantles it would be nice to have the add stockings for the winter holidays. It can just be decorative
  • I loved the Bed Upgrades in Sims 4 but they should have added an electric blanket with an automatic on/off. You wouldn't want it on in summer
  • Door wreaths for holidays - just click on the door - Add Wreath - and you pick from one of a few designs
  • Modern fridges should have lighting, Vintage ice boxes shouldn’t
  • Sims should be able to sit on the edge of tubs
  • Reading the newspaper on the toilette
  • Swimming pools should have vapor over them in winter
  • Poor quality sinks should have faucets that drip unless upgraded

The Ever Delightful Evergreen Holiday Tree - Probably not what it would be called in Sims 5. Would have the same interactions as the Sims 4 version including Father Winter placing gifts underneath. The Carols Sims will sing around the tree will be Simlish versions of 1. Let It Snow 2. Jingle Bells 3. Deck the Halls 4. Good King Wenceslaus

Neighborhoods and Community Lots
  • I would love to have sub-categories of lots to help identify what kind of lot it is or influence its patrons in the Lot Panel. For example Retail-Florist Shop vs Retail Candy Shop vs Retail - Grocery Store. Or Restaurant-Indian vs Restaurant-German. Bar-Night Club vs Bar-Pool Hall. I'd like to be able to set it's name, address, Lot Description, Lot Traits, Hours and Days of Operation, Owners Name, and patron age groups.
    • New Weather type - Sandstorms and Dust Devils
    • I hope lots can be moved as long as they snap to roads
    • I'd love to snap another lot to the edge of an existing lot as long as there is room for things like farms to attach fields of crops or a manor house with a huge garden.
    • I want service lots too like Tattoo parlors and Hair Salons as well as Spas and Restaurants. But I want them to be ownable, open, and to be able to set employees either by hire or from ones own family
    • If you have a Get Famous/Superstar style Pack - I think you should definitely have a big world for it. I would make it a combination of the Hollywood Hills for a few famous Celebrities to live and a section of town that looks like Superstar's Studio Town with soundstages set up for different productions like a Western, a Sci-fi movie and a Soap Opera. A spot for modeling shoots. A concert stage. Then I'd add at least one really cool looking Night Club, A Movie Theatre thats like the Chinese Theatre and the walk of fame, A Hollywood Forever Cemetery facsimile. A fancy Beach, High End retail shopping center with spots to fit one clothing, perfumer and a jewelry store. Then add an (or leave room for) an upscale restaurant and a Spa. Bring back Lana the Production Coordinator. Limit Paparazzi to this neighborhood because they are annoying.
    • I'd really like an NPC tour guide and Curator for Museums
    • Museums should come in different types. Museum - Art, Museum - Egyptian (or any other foreign destination) , Museum - Natural History, Museum - Oceanographic, Museum - Science & Technology
    • I want bar bouncers in this game too. They were fabulous in Sims 3
    • It would be so great if there are cars there are the parking lots or spaces for them in the community. I'd really love a Lover's Lane spot
    • Car Wash Rabbit Hole would be fabulous and teenagers can work there as a part time job
    • I'd also like a mechanic shop because if we have cars we should have car trouble

    List of Non-Rabbit Hole Businesses and Community Lots I'd like to be able to have in Sims 5 - Special note. I dislike Retail lots that aren't specific as to what kind of retail store they are.
  • Bank
  • Bakery
  • Bars & Night Clubs
  • Bath House/Onsen
  • Book Store
  • Café
  • Car Lot

  • Perfumery (Retail)
  • Pet Store
  • Playground
  • Public Pools
  • Restaurant - I'd like as I stated before to have to be able to state the kind of Restaurant it is in a drop down so it would read Restaurant - German etc.
  • Resorts/Full Service Hotel - Beach, Ski
  • Stables & Equestrian Center
  • Tattoo Shop
  • Toy Store (Retail)
  • Veterinarian Clinic

Restaurant Theme Sub-Category Starter List Sub-Categories can be added later as new cuisines are added
  • American Diner
  • Chinese
  • Deli
  • French Bistro
  • German
  • Indian
  • Japanese/Sushi/Hibachi

  • Change a burnt out Headlight
  • Change the Oil
  • Change the Paint
  • Change Tires
  • Fix a Dent
  • Fix a Flat
  • Get a Vehicle Inspection
  • Install a Security system
  • Repair the Engine

Game Play
  • Amusement Park wishes - Carnival Music for the Amusement Park, The Carousel of course, Ferris Wheel, Midway Games (like the Strong man game, Whack a mole, the target shooting game, ring toss, ski ball), Wandering clowns who juggle, The buildable Rollercoaster, Carnival Food booth, Dunk Tanks, Water Park build items. House of mirrors, Skating Rink, Tunnel of love, Petting zoo, Bumper cars, Fortune Teller Caravan or the Fortune Teller booth. I'd like this to be a single giant lot where Sims come to be entertained.
  • Funerals - with life we have death. Why has this always been so glossed over
  • Consequences - Do bad stuff or dumb stuff and you should have some sort of payback for choices. There doesn't feel like there is any permanence
  • Basic Banking, Wills
  • Birthday Cakes in the Sims 4 were great and we should keep the same interaction however with 1 small tweak. The Interactions should always be First "Make a Wish", THEN the "Blow out the candles" interaction which then leads to the aging up. I love the "Sneak a taste of frosting"
  • New Cake Decorating Styles - Graduation Cake, Baby Shower Cake, Retirement Cake
  • I would like to keep the ease of being able to add music to the game and in fact I would love to be able to make my own radio stations. So if I want to make my own Cajun restaurant I can have Zydeco on the radio if not otherwise added by the creators.
  • Day Spa - Basically do what you did before in Spa Day (Yoga class, Mani-Pedi and fingernail/toenails, Massage, Saunas, the tub soaks, the changing into robes and slippers, the lockers, the hand massage, the wellness skill, etc.) Just ADD waxing, facials, paraffin dips, Seaweed wraps, Feet Washing and Tai Chi
  • Kite Flying - and if you fly the kite in a rainstorm you get hit by lightning.
  • It would be nice to have the Big Boss & Headmaster Scenarios Back maybe slightly different but with no less consequence
  • Farming EP with a lovely rural setting where we can really concentrate on horses, cows, chickens, pigs and all the lovely new harvestables.
  • Perfume making and essential oils
  • Spelunking - I think it would be a great sport to add
  • Shooting Skeet
  • The Grim Reaper should have his pranks and small details from past games back. I LOVE that Bonehilda has a crush on him. I think he'd play chess in the past which if I remember correctly is an Ingmar Bergman reference from the movie the 7th Seal.
  • If you do the clubs again please do your best to make sure that when you introduce activities in later packs that you update the offering in the clubs (Icons, activities the club partakes in, etc.) as would make sense. For example let's say you introduce clubs in the second pack and in the fifth pack you introduce sewing. As a part of the sewing skill you also update the potential icons for clubs to include a sewing machine, a Needle and thread, a dress & pant, and a quilt club icons. You also add sewing and gossiping (because thats what sewing circles do) as group activities.
  • Spooky day should be a great day for Tricks as well as Treats. Flaming Poo, toilette papering and eggs are most traditional
  • Ice Sculpture judging and Sand sculpture events for beaches.
  • I'd love it if burglars and detectives step up their game with heists, mysteries, security systems (laser etc)
  • I'd like it if we could pick between the Western Zodiac or the Eastern Lunar Zodiac
  • It would be interesting to be able to combine the products of different skills to make something new. For example
    1. Candle Making + Perfume-making gets = Aromatherapy Candle
    2. Candle Making + Alchemy = Enchanted Candle
    3. Herbal Preparation + Sewing = Gris Gris bag or Voodoo doll or even a Lavender Sleep Mask
    4. Jewel-Crafting + Enchantment Magic + Evil Witch = Cursed Necklace
    5. Jewel-Crafting + Pets = Jeweled Pet Collars
    6. Wood Carving + Witch's spell = Enchanted Broom
    7. Wood Carving + Gem Cutting + gathered magical object = Wand
    8. Wood Carving + mechanical parts and skill = Grandfather clock
    9. Baked Rye Bread + Ham and other Ingredients + Cooking = Ham Sandwich
    10. Apricot Jam (Canning) + Chocolate and Flour = Sacre Torte
    11. Gardening + Flower Arranging (Drying Flowers) + Perfume = Potpourri
  • The water effects from Sims 4 they were great I hope we get swans as well as ducks.
  • Should be able to hire a Photographer for events especially things like a family reunion where you can request the photographer to take certain types of group pictures for example, Wedding Party, Family Photo where you select all who should be in the photo and the family groups up, Couples, Proud Parents (Parents and Baby), and it should work the same for pets too.
  • I really want Sims to be able to go door to door and sing carols as well as by the Piano or Christmas Tree.

Caroling Songs and Recognizable Songs for Sims to Sing - A lot of these songs are public domain.
  • Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life
  • Auld Lang Syne - New Years Only

    > @redrogue60 said:
    > * The cut scenes for huge life events
    It appears this thread hasn't gone into complete obscurity. I'm unsure if you stated this however there was no roof on the inside and that's necessary because it completely ruins the cutscene and screenshots when the walls in the background lead to sky. Also, I think Bella might be tired of waving so many sims off to uni!

    That's a very well thought out idea and I would be in heaven if everything you wrote was implemented (and implemented thoroughly and completely)! I would be first in line to toss my money at EA if they ever produced a game like this! They'd be Ka-Trillionaires!

    Gardening & Floral Arranging

    • Can we please have plants that more similar to their real world counterparts. Ground plants don't look like bushes. For example carrots and potatoes. Strawberries are also not a bush plant.
    • Gardening to keep cross-breeding and grafting but in a more realistic way. For instance to get new varieties of lilies, orchids, roses, tulips as well as Grape, Apple (Green vs Red) and Coffee Beans
    • If you introduce a cuisine that relies heavily on a certain fruit, veggie, spice don't be afraid to give that new harvestable along with
    • Its ok to confine certain plants to certain zones to grow without the use of a green house. We should expect to have some challenge in the game. If I want to grow bananas in a temperate zone I can build a Green House.
    • I like that harvestables came out in different seasons. This is just like in real life. I like a small amount of realism because I think it's a learning opportunity.
    • You should include the scientific name of each plant in the description.
    • I feel like Maple syrup collecting is a cross between Gardening and Cooking so I'm not sure where to place it per se. I think it would be a great new fall activity.
    • I used Sims 3 canon grapes, coffee beans and some University herbs. I say keep it canon.
    • I listed all the Base game fruits and veggies based on the most common in the most cuisines for cooking and baking.
    • I'd like garden signs for rows of different plants
    • Growing the plants necessary for essential oils and perfume making would be awesome.
    • I'd like French Garden trellis
    • Composting should make a comeback. Actually I'm surprised that with all the Eco stuff that composting wasn't among the activities.
