I am just issuing this out today will be my last day on this forum. I wanted to say goodbye to the many friends i've met here and to the many people I've had very good discussions with. I hope that you all keep yourselves safe and happy and worry free. I've for a long time been battling it out whether to stay with the sims franchise or not. It just comes a time where you realize that EA customer service is terrible, They aren't going to change and there really is nothing you can do about it other than withhold your money. I've been having a long standing battle with my own personal life in trying to get my health under control due to my own lupus. I think right now I'd rather dedicate more of my time and life to that than to here. I just don't think developers care or want to listen to us. Equally all this place has become is a place is a school yard bullying ground where victims are punished and the bullies rewarded. So thanks everyone. Happy Simming

  • It's said in the context to be derogatory. Equally it's annoying and is used in the wrong context all the time as a hater is a person that hates because they are jealous of another human being. People dislike of a product doesn't categorize them as a hater at all and it's just sad people keep trying to justify using that…
  • I don't know i don't push against positive threads. I don't even try i tend to think the flow of the thread is better and positive players need their space just as much as players who are frustrated need theirs to vent. So unless i have something positive to contribute i won't walk in. It's only when i see the thread like…
  • It's hard to tell when people when people are being general what's happening because in all honesty it's just to broad a scope to cover. Of course the fanbase gaming sites and all over have a very heavy point of view of the direction sims has taken it's a long standing icon that just isn't doing well right now. Regardless…
  • he was being sarcastic hun and referring to your post that says anyone in a negative thread will just stomp you down saying they didn't want it or it wasn't good. Basically he's saying that its not like people who are positive come to those threads and remain positive. Even this thread which is suppose to be about liking…
  • Actually i looked at the list and it actually was larger than 92 and quite a bit that is not on that list that doesn't actually function in full capacity or capability but was added to sims 4 none the less. In comparison only small fraction of improvements have been made but nothing ideal to where it's noteable to help…
  • Here's the thing im having trouble with. I see a new account but it's claiming to be here a while. Equally within a few short minutes posting after this thread http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/839705/ea-gurus-you-are-on-the-right-track#latest The exact same thing of telling people not to listen to the players who…
  • What I'm trying to understand is why she's allowed to behave this way consistently on a daily basis with players and hasn't gotten any jail time or anything....
  • No they can't add it unless they uproot the way the instances work which is what the lots are. Again this is the mmo build for the map so basically why you have to port to the neighbor even though you see right over into their house. Aion as the same instance behavior. I can see over into the next zone even the players in…
  • No developer in life should ever think in all their game development life cycle and business they are on the right tract. The moment they think that is the moment they are headed for foreclosure. This is an industry that profits on creativity and expression. The last thing you do is not continue to improve and evaluate…
  • Yeah it's not like i don't spend quite a lot on gaming and i will for sure in the 2016 line up though it's mostly all going to sony and square enix. Final fantasy 7 remake i waited forever 10 years for that to be announced! But yeah i'm gaming still, and again not even just on pc. So they gotta know most of their audience…
  • I agree on this, we have yet to actually here what they plan to do about our being upset. Pretty much the only answer we have heard is that we are listening or that we hear u. I mean i don't know how people can express themselves enough and we've been in the idea's and feedback section non stop expressing our thoughts and…
  • Lol i tend to talk as little about family play and more on the game development side of things as that is what interests me but there is room for that too as we are discussing ea's continued silence towards our playstyle. i don't think it's off topic to discuss that. I think it just becomes off topic when people are all…
  • If you're trying to analyze the situation at hand then you're going about it wrong to try and deliver a conclusion even for yourself. Corporations don't work how you think. Equally a lot of the topic here may be the players opinion but many of us understand business politics. Truth is corporate CEO's don't' run anything…
  • This is a thread about family play and discussing those missing features that aren't in the game and how ea has been silent about it. It's off topic to come in and talk about anything else and is breaking the forum rules. No matter what Ea is not a person no one here can fill in it's shoes as it's a corporate entity.…
  • I don't think she'll close it. I think sims 4 needs a lot of work. More than just the culling, incest and everything else. again traits and emotions need an overhaul. No matter how i look at it i dont' like the teenagers in this game and i don't like that there are no toddlers. The generational gaps are huge in this game…
  • You can't tell a tone by reading, and typing. Im a veteran too and no where in there did I say some of them don't like the game you're free to like what you like. Again no one here is challenging that. That seems to be a problem for people who like the game that is reoccurring. Which is why i said many of us and not all of…
  • I disagree about the survey. I think they need to get down and dirty with their fans and talk to us. Many of us don't want to just type it out. We want to have a talk, a strong one and a long one. At the end of the day it's better to hear it so they can associate what's being said with a voice. Even better when it's in…
  • No matter how i see it this thought is belittling. It's not like you're curious and asking this question to have a discussion. It's like you're asking this question to condemn people who think that it's wrong for Ea to try something new. It's almost like baiting the players. That's where i have problem with this forum…
  • I understand in all honesty the playerbase that have a hard time playing simulation and sandbox. Again it's not that i don't know that there is a playerbase that enjoys playing a game that has more direction and can be a lot less challenging for them in the aspect they aren't creating their own play. I fully understand…
  • I think if you read my entire post rather than skim it you'll find I have stated these are my personal view points and the view points of people who think like me. No where do i mention that I am speaking for the entire fanbase at all but only on the behalf of myself. I also included in that post that there are a portion…
  • I would like to hope that is possible to bridge that gap SimGuruDrake but in all honesty i feel that gap is far to huge between. I am one of those players who did not buy sims 4 and even though i gave your free trial a chance i could not enjoy it at all. There is a lot of detail i can give as to why i can't enjoy your…
  • No, while ea wants to profit from quantity not quality im not not about to shove out my money for a new direction i never asked for or wanted. A new book doesn't bear the same name tag as a series it gets a new title and a new beginning because it's a different book. You don't look for Harry Potter 5 and expect it to be a…
  • This is really out of line. People could easily turn the tables onto you and say the same thing. I'm 100 percent positive you've find it offensive. As it's not right to pin the blame on someone who has no control over the situation. How about instead of going around bullying and baiting meeon trying to pin the blame on…
  • Well the studio their having this at isn't a sims studio it's a studio where they make the side sims console games. The mobile department isn't out there either. So im guessing either their playtesting starwars or their playtesting a sims console game because around this time is when it comes out.
  • It still means the generator is broken because it's got a flawed design. Think of it this way if they're counting the dead among the living rather than cleaning it up so that the dead leave first before the living sims, elderly next, and then birth rate reduction when the town is maxed. Than some of this wouldn't even…
  • So basically story progression is cleaning and controlling the town as it is designed, and players want the designed adjusted to be more accommodating for rotational play. Well that means it's deleting like crazy too. The reason why the cap is there is because it's in place for the players system. For those on a 64bit os…
  • I didn't want to comment because i do find the hashtag use upsetting personally. Especially due to personal experience. My way of seeing this is does this make the problem she's having with the game a comfortable read for developers and for members. No. I don't know what's wrong with the culling because of the way this was…
  • Sounds odd because Canada holds none of the maxis crew. If it was play testing than it would be something for the sims pc it would be placed in redwood shores as that is where maxis is unless they've got a studio in Canada we don't know about. If that's the case im inclined to believe it's not an EP or toddlers but a side…
