  • Confessions... Well, they're weird. Consider yourselves warned! - I have played TS4 for over 1,200 hours, more than any other game I ever owned. - When I'm on vacation, at work or otherwise not at home, my sims are the thing I miss the most. - I …
  • I once created a birthday card for my sister that had us and our parents as sims on it, and I sometimes use the game to recreate scenes from my novels. That's what I have a second save for. However, I only play normally in one save.
  • I got into TS4 roughly two and a half years ago, in January 2017, and only because my beloved TS2 would no longer work on my new computer. Strangely, I didn't start actually playing the game until another month later, I was kind of afraid of live mo…
  • I basically only want two things from a possible Tropical Island EP: - The island in question has to be residential, not a vacation destination. I don't mind if there's a lot on it that can't be changed (like those three in Windenburg), or if one n…
  • Fine by me. Earlier this week I started building a new house that is still not finished, not because I'm so in love with experimenting and looking for clutter, but because it's so hard to find matching furniture. I'll gladly take anything that makes…
  • That mod constructor thing is waaaay too complicated for me... I couldn't even create a simple custom trait.
  • Endless_Days wrote: » Hmmm... "Valentine" and "Wesker". But where's Barry? Barry lives in StrangerVille with his wife Annette, who caused the zombie apocalypse, and their teenage sons Chris and Leon. I'll show you their house when someone …
  • Witches will be released in 350 hours (= 2 weeks)! (... One can dream, right?)
  • It's complicated when a trap in the Selvadoradian temple asks you to step on a pressure plate while in a specific emotion, but your sim's mind is so overloaded with Focused moodlets from simply being in the temple that no amount of emotion berries w…
  • My sims often get invited to talent showcases, but then end up on a home lot rather than a night club or bar, and I can't even knock on the door because no one is home. This has happened to me three times in a row now and I'm not accepting such invi…
  • I have all the packs except Toddler Stuff, which I assume doesn't introduce any new threats, so I'm free to play with everything nasty the game has to offer. The mill itself represents air (it's a wind mill after all), and also water with that s…
  • Bridgeview: Art district Ridgeline Drive: Religious district Llama Lagoon: Not sure, kind of random... As you can see, it's a mixture of new and old: The home of the Valentine family and the vet clinic are premade buildings from Brindleton …
  • I'm not against the idea, but all I really need is more allowed characters per name bar, that would solve many of my problems, especially with double surnames. I would prefer an additional bar for a sim's title (like Doctor, Mayor, Sir/Lord/Lady, et…
  • I'm a little surprised that Get To Work didn't come with any new aspirations because I can think of several off the top of my head: 1) Knowledge / Alien Scientist: Finding out as much as possible about aliens and their world. Tasks include: - Ha…
  • I have to admit, the beach in Brindleton Bay kind of looks like it was put there just to tease us, so I can see why people want it to become swimmable. But personally, I wouldn't mind swimmable beaches being restricted to one world, as long as it's …

  • @AlwaysAsking: In Jungle Adventure, you will come across treasure chests in the jungle, traps in the temple, and several mini-adventures that work like chance cards, with differing outcomes depending on your sim's skills and, well, luck. If you open…
  • So Death and the Devil recently spent their vacation in Selvadorada, and after running into the world-famous adventurer archaeologist Lara Croft there, decided they wanted to get a taste of archaeology themselves. However, if the never-ending…
  • Part-time jobs for teenagers, which usually have three levels, count towards the "Reach level 3 in any career" requirement of the Knowledge / Renaissance Sim aspiration. Your sim still can't complete the aspiration as a teen because the second miles…
  • I wouldn't necessarily agree that Build Mode is great, because for as many cool features as it has, like picking up entire rooms and placing them somewhere else, there are also lots of shortcomings and plain weird design choices that weren't as prom…
  • Provided that this is real (which I'm not convinced of), it doesn't actually say that this tropical world is going to be a vacation destination. That would be rather impractical anyway, since this hypothetical pack also comes with a surfing skill an…
  • Not sure if it counts as a tradition, but my "StrangerVille Elite" club, consisting of sims who have solved the mystery or helped someone else do so, meets every Thursday evening at the Old Penelope bar for a fun night out. That is, when I actually …
  • I'd say only if I have direct control over my sims' habits, but... I'm afraid that if they ever introduce more autonomous behaviour to TS4, even if it comes with options, it will end up just as broken as everything else in the game (if not from the …
  • Witches > werewolves (provided they're better than their TS2 counterparts) > robots > better plant sims. Not sure how fairies would differ from witches in anything other than looks, and I don't see the point in mermaids at all. Zombies o…
  • It's great that not all careers are the same, and I'd like to see more of each type in the future (and possibly even new ones?), but voted active careers because they are the fewest so far, despite having been introduced in 2015 already (or whenever…
  • The lovely moments of peace and quiet when paparazzi are more interested in taking photos of each other than of my celebrity. (I would put on the disguise more often, but the option doesn't even come up on half of the mirrors I click.)
  • I've been hoping to get a feature like this in TS4 for ages! Now my sims will finally stop going for the computer all the time. Thank you, @Triplis, EA should hire you!
  • The functional sewing machine from TS2, complete with a corresponding skill. I liked the idea of actually having to buy new clothes or make them yourself, because as TS4 is now, those clothing stores from GTW are completely useless. Sewing could als…
  • Not something I desperately need, but I wouldn't say no to it if we got it, especially if it comes with a big new world and new features such as living off the grid. I probably wouldn't have more than one or two families that are actually farmers, b…
