  • I plan university terms so that they don't overlap major holidays such as Winterfest. Sometimes though, I just let sims power through the holiday. If they have time to celebrate then great but if not, I don't get too worked up. I figure that the holidays are there to be celebrated if I want and if the sims being played…
  • I play more with these.
  • I actually think they could let us customize how we want our ads and shopping options. Give a few different options for different types of players. They should definitely give us an option to leave ads out of gameplay entirely. I'm also going to say that I personally don't want them on the loading screen either. I like…
  • So, I played again and this time the button was pulsing and spinning without colors. It honestly is visually hard on the eyes. I personally can't look directly at it. I understand advertising content but this is not the way. Keep it out on the homepage. I do not want to see pack advertisements in the game. We're all fans…
  • That pack really needs a refresh. I still use Granite Falls. I sent a group there to celebrate their high school graduation before university not that long ago. It's definitely a pack that I use. However, it definitely would benefit from a refresh. I really see it having the aesthetic of something like a cabin in the woods…
  • I will just add that there is nothing wrong with making a lot of saves. I gave you the type of advice I did because you came in asking and seeming like you want a change. You can definitely keep starting up new saves but if you want to do things differently, I think that is the point of the other advice on this thread. In…
  • You know, I've literally never downloaded anyone else's sims because I make my own. Sure, why not though? I already have a lot of other sims so I probably would not put them together but I could drop them in my game and see what happens. It could be fun to see what random direction they go in. I played Strangerville with a…
  • I definitely do not want a pulsating shopping cart during gameplay. I did play briefly at some point after the update and I noticed that I had the shopping cart that didn't pulse. I clicked on the cart and it had a message about how this feature isn't available right now. I am pretty certain that I was online. I think that…
  • Alright, here's what I would do with this. I thought about how to get over this situation, after all, it's an apocalypse and they are in a bunker. Options are limited so sometimes when one is hungry and there is food, one eats without questioning. However, looking at the photos, I think Willow is awesome. Who is the guy in…
  • I have the icon in-game but not the pulsating feature, so that must be one of the options that they are testing. As for my feedback, I can get migraines, so no, I don't want anything triggering. I haven't minded the ads in the corner of the home screen. There's a pop-up that I click through before starting the game that I…
  • Thanks! It would be wrong to guess that most of my sims are like that but I would say I have 3 official criminals/villains in a large amount of characters. They can cause changes in the game. I definitely do not play with a criminal underworld style at all but I look for gameplay and personalities that clash to create…
  • I like this use of Moonwood Mill. I picked it up in one of the sales but I haven't used that location yet. Running a store there is an interesting idea.
  • @Admiral8Q - I admire how you play. You seem to have a lot of fun builds in your game, I think. Yes, I have always lit my game that way and didn't realize that there was a trend to do anything differently until I recently watched one of the famous builders. (I almost never watch them because I have always just known how to…
  • About the Stuffpack ideas, I like several that have been mentioned. I am also someone who would like glassblowing and ballet. I like this upcoming jewelry-making pack, so they could add more hobbies like that. I like how they tried to appeal to players with different playstyles and interests, so they could continue doing…
  • I will just join in the love for City Living. That was one of the packs that made me really like TS4 and I have had so much fun with it. Yes, at the time, people panned the apartments but they were part of the challenge. In a real city, you have Needs TLC apartments and vermin appearing. There are loud neighbors at all…
  • You have had other great answers. I will add my two Tomarani cents. I have not played with the rental gameplay yet and I have not run into the save corruption bug or issue at all yet. I play generally in other worlds but I have sent a few households to visit Tomarang and that was fine. The most I ran into was a buggy walk…
  • I probably have more than one thing that I would change so I'll answer this with a few important points. 1. Sometimes they change the game for other players in ways that kind of break it for me and I need to just ignore those changes if I can. I am happy for those other players and sometimes I like the changes but at other…
  • I am a rotational player with numerous sims in the same save and I flip households whenever I want to because I am playing various characters. I also have certain families that I like a lot. That's a great style of play and you can absolutely do that but I think there is another answer to your question as well. You are…
  • I like what you are suggesting. I kind of think that we as players should also be able to come up with our own deep-seated values for families. I would include options for creativity, intellectual development, community leadership and some sort of liberal values and traditional values (not in a simple political sense but…
  • I will admit that I'll be happy either way. I only have very vague memories of the old content that you are describing. You have to admit though that it would be a really funny pack. Also, about bachelor/bachelorette parties, they are often still a bit tacky unless one decides to be a non-conformist. I have to say that if…
  • I don't really use saucers, actually. I use a mix of ceiling lamps and other types of lighting. Sometimes I will have the lighting come from several of those sources in one room. I also use some mood lighting as well. I tend to play with the walls partially down so I can see and my view is angled so my view of events isn't…
  • I will probably get this one right around release. That does not always happen but I have been wanting more hobbies and I see a lot that I will like. I'm in the middle of university for my sims so I don't know if I will start using the gameplay right away, but I'm sure I will use it. I probably will use the CAS/BB right…
  • I have certain tastes so my sims end up being influenced by that. I really like the colors of blue and green so I probably skew toward having those colors. I have different colors represented though. I'd say there's some purple, red, white, orange and various patterns but I probably have more sims wearing blue, green or…
  • I combine everything together. I do think this pack actually goes with Growing Together and San Sequoia. I do not play a lot with occults so I don't plan to do that but I would play with jewelry-making. It's possible that a few quirky sims would try out the mood effects. I would have sims wear custom jewelry as well. I do…
  • After a major turning point or conclusion of a significant chapter of life for a sim, either I continue playing them to the next phase or frequently, i rotate to another household. I tend to change up who I am playing somewhat frequently. It's not bored switching. I just know when it is time for a change. Whenever I come…
  • I play with a lot of characters so I put them in a lot of different outfits and I guess I have my own sense of style. I don't think I am one of the players who are very fashion-obsessed though. I don't use CC. I don't put on the false lashes or go for the types of looks that are popular among the crowd that really focuses…
  • I'm just going to say that I actually do like the style of the CAS/clothing from the little bit that we have seen. It's a mix of Victorian/Edwardian and hippie/boho. I don't think it is overly done. I personally know quite a few people with that style who tend to wear that type of jewelry. I don't think anyone has…
  • Another Diamond here, thanks. Please enter me in the giveaway.
  • About the tables, I have a few thoughts. One is that with rotational gameplay, different households have different hobbies so the various equipment is a little bit different for each of them. Additionally, it depends on if the hobby is a long term one or a short term one for how I handle this but one thing that I do is to…
  • I've been interested in this since they announced it. I like the stuffpacks - good price, good amount of stuff completing a theme. I would like more information. The jewelry in the game has been dated and I often ignore it. About Oasis Springs, I love Oasis Springs. Mine is completely full. Both Oasis Springs and Willow…
