    Great, another news update that has no information, no news and no update :/

    If it's not a gameplay kit resurrected, then I'm most likely not interested.
    Exactly, haven't we had enough with these content droughts already? I know Grow Together just released, but this has to be the worst announcement for a new quarter so far.

    Blog post.

    This season, define what home means to you. Consider the possibilities: a place of comfort, a place of sanctuary, a place for inspiration, or simply a place to store your memories.

    Home is where you feel the most comfortable, and the most like yourself. Home is where you surround yourself with the things you love, even if they’re not in pristine condition. It’s a momentary refuge from the chaos of the day, a space to let your imagination run free, breathe a little more deeply, or take a brief trip down memory lane. Find the familiar in the forgotten. Embrace the imperfections, the messiness, and the secondhand discoveries. Make yourself at home in your home.

    Reclaim your space.

    To me this just sounds like stuff that should've been included in Growing Together. The "Take Me Home" tagline is also giving me this feeling as well as the retro patterns and moving boxes... Gonna hope I'm at least proven wrong on this but it's not like it would be the first time stuff was split up across packs... Plus this is coming Right after the release of GrT, which also split up the infant update. I'm just so tired 😭 And the "store your memories" line like we didn't just get family memento boxes in GrT as well.

    Also none of this sounds like it could include gameplay so... RIP to that as well I guess. I wish I wasn't so jaded 😭

    I'm so hoping that the Hot Date Kit will FINALLY have the beautiful Heartshape Bed.
    Also, I'm so hoping there will even be a Heartshape Hot Tub. Ooo, La La. <3<3

    Not going to deny, I would buy that, ESPECIALLY if the heartshaped bed + hot tub would give a bigger chance at not just getting twins, but also triplets, or even quadruplets! Could they make this happen? <3

    4 kits is overkill and I wish they would be open with us about the halt in development of stuff packs. The only kit I own is the one they gave us for free, and I wouldn't be surprised if EA did that to help pad the purchase numbers for kits.

    Also part of me is expecting this "hot" update to be the Caliente refresh since they've been very slow on these townie refreshes for whatever reason. I'm hoping it's a summer themed update, but I've learned to manage my expectations when it comes to this game at this point.

    Also what ever happened to refreshes? Are we just not getting any more of those? I'm really tired of the lack of communication :/
    Yup everything you said it true. It was kind of cool we got that Kit for free, even though it was only a limited-time offer, but I don't see the point of more clutter that will have zero new gameplay in it...boring! :s

    Well there go my hopes for some new functional kitchen appliances. 😄

    Not a problem though. Still looking forward to new kits.

    Really getting annoyed at SimGurus and EA/Maxis for not bothering to address whatever happened to Stuff Packs and Pack Refreshes...those were the actual stuff that used to excite me...now we have 1 pack type less as it seems like SPs are dead and they got replaced with Kits...also I am still extremely disappointed how they stopped with the pack refreshes after the very first one, Spa Day! The refresh was so well done in my opinion, they should have did more of them! Or is there more to this than we do not know about? I heard this rumour some time ago how apparently they have simply delayed the pack refreshes and possibly more new stuff packs too, as they have to fix the biggest issues and missing base game content. This is my theory but only the most optimistic one...hmm...so what if they are working on the big missing stuff like cars and possibly some more CAS updates, maybe a color wheel tool for hair and eyes? The Infants update was the biggest Sims 4 update we had in a long, long time, and it was awesome...maybe they have delayed plans for more stuff packs and new pack refreshes because of the p*ndemic? And now they are basically catching up with the base game and the free updates? Hmm... :o

    Unique kits, if EA don't start selling old kits under a new name they have to be unique. As far as feeling the home selling argument, at least my Sims like it best at home. Outside they get hungry, tired and on vacation homesick. I can't see what kit can bring that make Sims feel more comfortable at home. This is nothing I can be excited for

    Honestly I don't mind it being kits for the next few months, considering I will be less likely to feel the need to buy them immediately as they don't add a whole bunch I feel I need in my game. Saves me a little money for the next couple months.

    This sounds like only build kits, I was hoping we'd at least get some CAS ones out of the four kits...

    The place of comfort could be a CAS kit. Cozy, comfortable, lounging at home outfits.

    I’m not familiar with their release schedules in the past but with the utmost of respect I really wasn’t expecting more than kits when they announced two expansions and wasn’t sure where all the game pack and refresh speculation was coming from. I’d assume the two expansions is going to be their focus this year.

    Growing Together seems really good so far and will keep my attention to later in the year. I honestly like most of the kits a lot so I’m fine with this. I wonder what the update will be. It looks like moving house to me.

    Only 4 kits and one update? This is the most underwhelming road map so far. Sound like we are looking forward to a quiet spring season. The biggest news is that we are not getting any proper DLC (bigger than kits) for a while. I can't get hyped over kits if they just offer pretty looks and no real content. I would like a gameplay kit though, or even better a stuff pack. Let's hope the lack of gameplay DLC allows the devs to fix current issues or polish upcoming real DLC before release.

    The update could turn out to be good. I need more than one adjective to know if it will be worth it.

    I am more excited about the laundry list this time around because that promises to fix bugs that are actually bugging me right now.

    Sounds like 3 bb clutter kits and a CAS cozy loungewear kit? Well that's...underwhelming.

    Well I'm excited for more kits. They fit my budget and I just like them. More stuff for me/mysims.

    Okay, so I'll try to be positive, what would really good kits and updates be based on what we got?
    • The HOT update: A dating app/website perhaps, combined with an update for neighborhood stories for people to get into relationships and get married without our involvement?
    • A place of comfort: I like the suggestion of comfy clothes (doesn't seem reasonable with 4 bb-kits), but they also talk of second hand, so second hand clothes perhaps?
    • A place for inspiration: Art and decor kit? We could use a lot more paintings especially.
    • A place of sanctuary is hard to figure out in connection to the home, but the theme of the trailer seems rather 70s vibe, and they talk about second hand, so a 70s-style bb-kit perhaps? But this could also be religious artefacts and decor for all I know. It's hard to say.
    • Finally, a place to store your memories combined with all the moving boxes. Do I dare hope for a kit with a new useful object? A gameplay kit with different kinds of fully functional moving boxes? Possible to store items, keep them in your inventory and use them when you move house? Things you would bring with you when you move to a new home, or move in with someone you met on the hot date?

    Of course all the flowers and the gardening tools on one of the boxes could also indicate a gardening or greenhouse kit. And the books a library kit.
    Moreover, I advise that the cart button must be destroyed!

    I think the hot update will be the third part of Neighboorhood Stories focusing on Sims starting romantic relationships with other Sims, getting married, cheating, breaking up etc. Maybe it will also include romantic compatibility.

    Sounds like the same old same old hot mess of kits to me! No game play just stuff they didn't add to Growing together.
    Why can't they make it worthwhile like adding new swimsuit, pajamas, jewelry, eyelashes etc or food and drinks recipes. More hair and eye colors.

    I think this roadmap is fine. I wasn’t expecting anything at all just yet, as it still feels that we only just had a lot of new content with the big infants update plus the EP. And although I haven’t bought any kits yet, I do like the look of some of them and plan to use them in my game in time. I’m hoping there might be more gameplay kits, but even so I’ll be interested to see what they are. And we do still have another EP to look forward to later this year.

    An accessories kit isn't such a bad idea, actually. It might even sell pretty well since that area in CAS is sorely lacking. They could even add more tattoo options and such as well.

    Lots of "places" maybe we are getting kits that come with a world. I know I know, highly unlikely... I'll show myself out.
