  • I am too experiencing this on a fresh installation (new PC, no mods, no CC). I've disabled Origin-In-Game and Discord overlay but still the camera spins at 1000RPM with very little effort on my part :D This is the the first time I've had an issue like this so interested to know if anyone can suggest a fix.
  • It is an interesting point. As someone that really enjoys building I tend to lean quite heavily on the decorative and clutter items to create the home or space that I envisage. I also use a number of objects at a smaller or giant-size to fill in for content that I'd otherwise like to see available. This does obviously…
  • This was the first thing that jumped to mind. I recently took a Sim through a temple in Selvadorada and realised how well constructed all of that experience was. I'm not saying Simmers aren't capable of making something like that, or even improving upon it - more that it would frustrate Simmers that might otherwise end up…
  • I was really confused about this but a quick search has revealed that this came with Get Together. 😅 (I don't have this one) Sounds fun!
  • The actual Sims themselves don't do much for me because I like to create my own characters and stories, but I enjoy some references which builds the whole interconnectedness of the franchise. With some of the lots I remodelled in Willow Creek I used a few names to give a bit of "history" to the businesses that I created:
  • I can't remember precisely why I chose to buy it but I do remember buying 'The Sims' Deluxe Edition from GameStation in town. I then remember seeing an advert for The Sims 2 on TV and then buying that. It wasn't really until I found the online community that The Sims became an even bigger part of my life. 😂 A few friends…
  • Depends on my particular brief/backstory for the Sim(s). I usually build in advance of creating the Sims that are going to use it so generally I do use FreeRealEstate if it's not affordable.
  • But they're sick of swimming, ready to stand. 😉
  • That's quite a specific example 😅 but I take your point about lots becoming more like dioramas rather than something which is practical to move Sims into. I am guilty of watching those videos but mainly to nick a few ideas about using BB objects in unconvential ways to make the lot look more architecturally and…
  • Whilst no one is wrong for saying that a PC would perform better and could be better value, maybe you don't have the space or the right circumstances to have a fixed desk... I personally run TS4 off of a Dell Inspiron 7000 which is a good 3-4 years old now. I find it runs TS4 with no problem. It could be quicker but I…
  • Very neat idea on the upgrades. I suppose there is some virtue in keeping them as unlockables in return for hard work but sometimes I do wish I could just debug it. 😂
  • Seems like a lot of Simmers are experiencing problems creeping into their games. I haven't played much in the last couple of months but I did play a lot following the initial release of Eco Lifestyle and didn't notice the issues which I am coming across now like the Uncomfortable moodlets and so on. I am hoping it doesn't…
  • Personally, I'd go for TS3 style of open world. I really loved it but a hybrid would also be okay with me.
  • Now it's been mentioned I did notice that my Sims crafting job didn't complete but I got distracted and didn't investigate it properly. 😟 Hope they sort it out soon otherwise it sort of ruins quite a bit of all the fabrication work.
  • It isn't a priority to me but I can see why people would want them for added realism. I often place the debug cars on my lots in driveways/parking lots, if it feels worthwhile. But given that we just hit a loading screen every time a Sim travels it doesn't just seem worthwhile to me to have functional/purchasable cars.…
  • I think the simplest thing that bugs me is nonsensical routing that can happen, especially on large lots. You place in things like ladders and fire escapes mainly for completing the look - not because I want my Sim to leave the house, scale three stories on the outside of the building in order to go from their kitchen to…
  • Oh dear this is going to cause me a few problems! Does anyone know if it's been resolved yet? I only updated yesterday.
  • I suppose like lots of people have said it really depends on what brings you the most joy when playing. Creating lots is certainly my thing but I always approach it with a brief in mind and also consider what kind of Sims would enjoy living/working in a particular space. I just finished a large science-commune type lot…
  • I don't pay much mind to them to be honest. There are rare occasions where I might pair one of my Sims with one of them but whether they're living in the neighbourhood, in the gallery or just NPC's it doesn't make a difference to me.
  • This is fab @sarabeth2984 - you made me laugh out loud a few times and especially on Honda Civic 😂
  • This is something which for some reason I am only just noticing after an update installed yesterday. I have played/updated since June but perhaps for whatever reason it hadn't occurred. Whenever my Sims are in a space which is more expansive i.e. more distance between decor objects or even just standing at the lot's edge…
  • I have to agree that I don't think I look for anything differently to how I did when I started playing. I think that as the features have evolved overtime our expectations have changed for sure. Rather than thinking about it from the POV of a generational difference, there are many many Star Wars fans (young and old) which…
  • Bit confused that playing the game as sold is considered "vanilla" but w/e
  • @AnnLee87 I'm really sorry that you had that reaction - personally I think that's pretty awesome you took the time to learn about the flat and what it represents. I don't know what issue they took exactly but it sounds like they are the ones who need to amend their behaviour!
  • This reminds me of a conversation I was having recently about how cinemas advertise themselves to you every single time you go, despite having already bought a ticket or joined as a member. Even more ridiculous when it's at member-only/exclusive screenings Much like this I suppose they're going to keep trying to tempt you…

  • Not something I've read about and I'm happy with the quantity of Pride content in the game.
  • Hiya - I'm sure that's the way it is intended however I have come across this mod on an older thread - http://modthesims.info/d/540178 Edit: Also spotted a mention of this cheat which was introduced (again, a while ago) matchspeedstereo on/off No reports on whether it works so maybe try both.

  • Personally I'm not particularly interested in another incarnation at this stage. If they want to keep producing content for TS4, fine. There aren't many general gamers that would stick with one PC game for 6 years and it would appear that people are still finding themselves playing it for the first time even in 2020, and…
  • I had a moment the other day as I'm sure we all do when they have fallen into a pattern of playing The Sims and begin craving a bit of a change or outside inspiration. I turned to my friends (also simmers) for a bit of help. A quick brainstorm with them produced my Sim, Astrid. Astrid is a non-binary astronaught who is…
  • Hi @moo - don't despair, we all start somewhere and I suppose any kind of design comes more naturally to some. I can't add much to what's already been said - I'm my opinion the best way is exploration but also it's sometimes worth downloading lots you are impressed by and looking at how they've been achieved from a…
