  • Did you check under "Bake?" It could be listed not under "Cook" but under "Bake."
  • @Mightydan Your play style sounds awesome with how you've incorporated GT's features! You've taken expert advantage of the system to its fullest. Very inspiring! B) I'm very happy with this pack because of the new clubs feature and how you can individualize clubs in so many ways to make them truly unique. You can…
  • Omg, the voice video was so cool! Thanks for posting that. The Sims 2 voices and actions brought back a flood of great memories. <3 I haven't played that game in over 6 years, but those animations and sounds are still so endearing! But I especially like all three selections for both male/female Sims 4 voices, and I think…
  • I, too, get inspiration from all the creative Simmers on the forums, Gallery, and YouTube. I am amazed at what they are able to build and how creative they get in playing out their stories with all their different styles. It's captivating, and is a constant reminder to me of how wonderful The Sims series is, no matter what…
  • @DeKay Bolded part: That's often true in my game, also (lol), but sometimes my Sims enjoy it and rave about it for days afterwards! :o Silly Sims. :D eta: But it's usually to everyone else's chagrin, lol..."Stop raving about that blasted fruitcake, will you?!!" ;)
  • Awwww...did you know that when a childish Sim plays with the dollhouse, if he likes the character that lives there, he will pat and stroke the character's head? Sims can also scold the little people, too--heh heh--just like we do when we play with our Sims, right? :p ;) They will also dip the characters into the little…
  • Hi everyone! I haven't posted in awhile, but I've often stopped by to read all your updates. Always wonderful stuff! I have been very busy playing different families in my game, and uploading some houses and Sims to the Gallery. One that I just did on a whim today was Catalina (Catherine) of Aragon (King Henry VIII's first…
  • It's true, it's true. B)
  • Was just reading through this thread and.....LOL!! Ack! Someone turned SimGuruRomeo into a bobble head!?! :o :p Evidently he's just become the official Sims' Yes-Man. ;) Great stuff here, everyone. Glad to see the light-hearted humor!
  • @HIstoricgal Oh wow, this is interesting news! I will have to keep an eye out for those then. You say they were in the country neighborhood of Windenburg, the one right below where the Von Haunt Estate is?
  • Where do I begin? <3 B) The Sims themselves are my favorites. I love the art style of the Sims in 4. They are so beautiful! Love their animations and how they act with one another, always engaging one another socially. There are so many more interactions to do than ever before, which I've always wanted in The Sims. I love…
  • I would agree with OP's list. Here are my particular wants: POPULATION: I don't want any less Sims on community lots/public areas. Since Get Together was released, the amount of Sims I see on lots has gone down to around 12, instead of the usual 20 I used to get all the time. I want to see thriving, bustling venues and…
  • @HIstoricgal Do you mean a flock of little white sheep? I haven't seen any deer. :o
  • Yay! I agree! I still enjoy playing my Sim families, but I'm ready and waiting for this. A family pack is long overdue. And about sitting still in a chair in a restaurant, Cinebar is probably right---there would need to be magnets or seat belts on the chairs to make Sims stay sitting together. Otherwise what's the point?…
  • I enjoyed reading the spotlight on SimGuruRomeo! I'd love hearing more about all our SimGurus! B) My favorite ice cream: Trader Joe's Coffee Bean Blast. Coffee, coffee! I can't get enough coffee, I guess. Lol. :p
  • There are many factors that affect gardening for maximum output vs. effort invested. You don't necessarily need a lot of land to have a profitable "farm" in Sims 4. In fact, you don't really need any land---you can just garden in planter boxes/pots on patios, rooftops, or basements. B) I'd say the average Sim can easily…
  • OP, I hope you find enjoyment finally being able to explore Sims 4 for yourself. I enjoyed all past versions, and along with each one, this too, has a familiar, but different enough feel to the gameplay that makes it unique. Back in 2014 I was apprehensive to try Sims 4 after hearing about its differences from past games.…
  • Read between the lines. It just means the particular Sim animations have not been made yet for shower woohoo. I'm sure it has nothing to do with whether two Sims can fit together in a shower or not--we know Sims can walk right through each other, so it's just a matter of adding the coding, if Maxis so chooses. Right now…
  • I, too, think there are less Sims on a lot lately. I'm still getting a lot more than Cinebar, but about 5-6 less than I used to get. Right now usually around 12 Sims show up, with maybe 2 or 3 more outside walking around. This count includes NPCs though, like bartenders/baristas/DJs. I used to get several more Sims before…
  • In So. California where I live, there are the big dinosaurs located in Cabazon desert area. It makes a nice stop for lunch or dinner on route to Palm Springs (aprox. 100 miles east of Los Angeles). There's an indoor and outdoor museum full of dinosaurs, and you can even go up inside the biggest ones, where there is a gift…
  • I think it suits a Game Pack. My particular focus would be for my Sims to go there and enjoy it rather than for them to run it as a business, but it would be nice to also have that option. Would love to see this developed, especially with new table interactions for dates or maybe have simple NPC…
  • How beautiful! <3 I just heard the bell tower chimes in Windenburg Old Town area for the first time just now! I had just moved a new family into the Havisham House (that I revamped) and my Sim woke in the morning to eat breakfast. It was 8:00 a.m. and those chimes rang out over the town square. It completely took me by…
  • Me, me! I love Oasis Springs and all of its neighborhoods. Reminds me of where I live in the Southwest.
  • @greenXen I love doing this! It's especially fun when the whole family or generations are theme named. I'm particularly inclined toward silly names, myself. I like your examples and how you put them together in a collage. Great pic! B)
  • :p Remember in Sims 3 how your Sim's head could be changed into a frog? Lol. How about a llama head? I think it would have been cute to see llamas grazing on the hills in Windenburg instead of sheep, just, well...because! ;)
  • They don't do it while still in bed, but they do get up and go over to one another and kiss each other, or embrace, or do something romantic afterwards. It's so sweet! <3 @HowGreatThouArt That is so funny about what your date said: "Remember ME?" I hadn't seen that before. Lol. That's great! Love it!
  • @zeldagirl180 Yes, I fully support you on this! :) I wish we could edit the public areas to our liking, meaning all the areas where our Sims can now walk and move around in. I'm not talking about the backdrops or land areas where you get a red-circle slash where they can't go. One concern though, would be to watch out for…
  • @Tarruvi Yes. Maybe the fact that we can't alter terrain would prevent using that type of stairs outdoors, although I love the look. B) But indoors I sure hope Maxis can figure out a way to make it work. I MISS it so much. Thank you and everyone for your continued support! :)
  • Yes, that is a very nice song, OP. I have always loved the music in Sims' games, and had special favorites through the years. Right now one I love listening to is "Zumbray" on the Romance station. So wistfully pretty. I wish our Sims could slow dance to it. <3
  • Agree! That Sims 2 platform tool was so versatile as seen in that pic. <3
