Repose en paix mamie tu va me manquer :
Also props to giving us this info so early, because they knew we were stressing over this. So this transparecy was very welcome and I hope they are gonna keep doing this!
I wonder how mods & cc will work with this game, though? Perhaps CurseForge will help with getting mods allowed for both PC and Mobile? Maybe it'll be a little similar to how modded minecraft servers work? Looking forward to future news, I really hope mods are supported!
I am also glad it sounds like the mobile features will be an addition to the game and not a part of the game. My mother, an avid Sims player since Sims 1, has never owned a smartphone. I do, but prefer not to game on it as it drains the battery so fast.
I also hope EA remembers some households have more than one player in them. With Sims 1 and 2 we had to divide up the neighborhoods. With 3 and 4 we were glad to have player named saves. I hope the new technology EA will use for the multiplayer, and probably server gameplay will allow us to play it the same way. There is NO WAY we will be able to purchase multiple versions of the same game. I'm telling you, if anything is an automatic out for me, that is it. EA Guru's take note.
I'm very happy about this!
What does live service have anything to do with mmo?
Aren't they (TS4 I mean) already a live service anyways?
i was cautiously relieved by grant's comments re: multiplayer and a mobile version. i have zero interest in multiplayer but have no problem with a version of it being an option as long as it doesn't impact quality/depth of the game itself. same goes for mobile.
Nothing in particular, however some major concerns have been if it was multiplayer exclusive or online required. So while they may have said its not mmo, it doesn't necessarily mean it wont still require you to be online connected, take warhammer 40k inquisitor martyr for instance, playing multiplayer is optional there but you can't play game without needing to be online. Another example is Diablo 2 resurrected multiplayer is optional but if you want to have option to play it with friends you need to have battlenet online account.
So until they say it wont have live services specifically I would not rule that out entirely, yet.
Well I don't believe so in traditional sense, that most usually associate live services with something you have to always be connected to. TS4 has it optionally you can perfectly fine just switch into offline mode and play the game and it works. Many do that sometimes after patches out of fear mods they use would be broken by patch until mod creators update mods. Live services in TS4 only extend to gallery usage but don't require connectivity for anything else besides patching or installing the game.
I'm happy that they addressed this during the livestream. Hopefully they will reconsider making it cross-platform with mobile as well. I'm fine with them making a mobile game version but make it separate from the PC/Mac version.
EA also recently canceled two mobile games (Apex Legends Mobile and Battlefield Mobile).
I don't think in real be bad.The basic thing seems you can take it to go.They made it clear that the mobile will have different features for it than the PC version.
