  • And another finger curls on the monkey's paw...
  • Challenge and consequences, for one. There are times in TS2 where the words, "Save Early, Save Often" carry so much weight, because some situations or actions carry a chance of real destructive (or at least, inconvenient) consequences of you're unlucky enough. Save before fixing anything with a low Mechanical skill, save…
  • The Base Game has some major jank. They need to get rid of the autonomous water drinking, they need to get rid of autonomous "Check Toddler" (or at least get the thing tuned so it never springs when autonomy is off...because, have I mentioned, "Check Toddler" still triggers autonomously when autonomy is off...?), they need…
  • Only in some lore, not all of it. In some traditions, werewolves are pretty much indistinguishable from normal wolves when transformed aside from maybe being bigger than normal or having glowing eyes. It depends on the source. I'm pretty peeved with how they handled female werewolf body customization and the werewolf…
  • I'm actually mad about the handling of the werewolf GP. They hid the main aspirations behind a single-tier CAS aspiration, only to reveal the four main werewolf aspirations as single-tier aspirations as well. To add to the insult, 3/4 of these single-tier aspirations are inextricably tied to either the NPC factions the…
  • Yes! That gets on my nerves so much, especially in the wake of what they did to female werewolves! No option for breasts and unreasonably restricted hip, waist, and butt sliders in order to restrict them to an "androgynous" (read: masculine) physique, even as they rainbow-wash this game to Heck and back in every trailer,…
  • Probably "Vampires" and "Get Together". Clubs, Windenburg, and the supernatural go together like a peanut butter, maple syrup, and bread.
  • Yeah, that's messed up! Broken wedding pack, overly-restricted werewolf pack, half-baked wants and fears, shallow active school attempt, body hair that looks worse than an amateur modding attempt, not to mention all the crazy bugs...It's like 2022 is the year of long-awaited game additions that turn out trifling! If ever…
  • That's a good point. EA is notorious for killing both studios and franchises, usually milking the cow for all it's worth as they run it through the slaughterhouse. Combine that with the way the company treats its employees and the fact that the company has basically designated The Sims as a "girl game" (the gaming industry…
  • I think it should be an opt-in thing, like fame. Then again, with the recent bug that happened where sims were gaining fame even when they shouldn't have been, who knows how long that toggle would actually stay functional before an update broke it...
  • And that's exactly the problem with TS4: It's all about what the devs want, what the devs like, how the devs like to play, the stories the devs want to tell. As I've stated before, this is a game in a franchise of open-ended sandbox titles made by a team of people who want to work on linear games. In the past, gaiden games…
  • The bugs have gotten completely out of hand. Between that, the player railroading, and the half-baked female werewolf customization, it's almost like either a) the devs don't want to work on this game anymore or b) EA is trying to kill the franchise. Really, the amount of problems with TS4 are really starting to look like…
  • I haven't booted up any of my saves since the update, and I won't be doing so until this glitch is fixed. First the "My Wedding Stories" disaster, then the debacle that is female werewolf forms, now this aging glitch? They need to stop dropping balls before they trip on one and fall down the stairs...-_-;
  • If that was the case, we wouldn't see problems like the bra cups on items like the shell, coconut, and default strapless being much smaller than on the male werewolf and human character models, or the bulges on some pants that stick out farther on the female werewolf model than on the male. Off camera, I checked if it just…
  • It's even more egregious for female werewolves, though, in light of the unnecessary body customization restrictions and the way the devs talk up inclusion, representation, and freedom of gender expression. Our girls have been done dirty, and making excuses or giving the benefit of the doubt should not be anyone's first…
  • Because they're trying to play to the fantasy of making a living off of social media fame, and there are different avenues to it: gaming, fashion and beauty, lifestyle, exploiting your children for profit, making cheap copy-paste nursery rhyme videos...They've gotta cover all the bases.
  • LOL! I don't know...They always came off to me as the kind of couple who got together on impulse after some crazy night in Vegas and regretted it for the rest of their lives... :D
  • 1. Alien Teens erasing everyone's memory autonomously, screwing up classes and social lives. 2. Not mixing well with vampires at all. So much happens during the daylight... 3. Vomit-inducingly happy T.V. high school experience. 4. It gets boring after one or two playthroughs of the active school feature because it's the…
  • Makes me wonder how the heck Eliza ended up falling for Bob to begin with. She seems to be the straight A student who has her stuff together and he...he's that slacker who skated by with straight C's and called it good. How much juice and bubble blowing went into greasing the wheels of that relationship...? Also...young…
  • A bust slider and more waist, hip, and butt control for female werewolves in beast form. You can keep the androgynous build as the default if you like, but give those of us who want to give our female werewolves a more feminine build when they transform better options, please. And don't make the chest go pancake flat when…
  • I haven't done much building in TS3, to be honest. I have mainly built in TS2 and TS4. In my opinion, both games have their virtues and sins. TS2 Sins:* To re-size a room, you must delete the offending walls. * To make a basement, you must cheat the terrain tools. * You can't place things at half-tile intervals, making…
  • I'm 100% down with ceiling customization!! White ceilings only work with modern/plain-contemporary builds. For older buildings or log cabins or fancier builds, flat white is not sufficient! And, yes, I'm the kind of player who plays with walls up for immersion. I only play with cut-away walls when necessary, and I don't…
  • 1. I think it's silly that werewolves don't get tails as a customization option without mods on account of "clipping" when A-line/flared-out skirts clip with furniture all the time...often badly. At least tails could be set up to curl around to sit on top of a chair cushion when a sim sits! 2. I don't think clipping is the…
  • I'm happy wants and fears are coming to the game, as they really made TS2 juicy! I hope there are some actual penalties for fears coming true, though. Without the TS2 aspiration meter, there is a danger this feature will end up being just as shallow as whims were if there are no real consequences beside another flippin'…
  • Yeah, I miss alarm clocks from the previous games. As it is, in TS4 I've had to watch the clock overnight and carefully pause, cancel sleep, and direct sims to the toilet/shower to get them to start their day at the correct time. It's kind of annoying. Also, if they add alarm clocks, they'll also have to fix that thing…
  • They didn't give us tails as an option for werewolves due to "clipping issues" (even though every dress and skirt that flares outward noticeably clips into chairs, but they haven't banned flared skirts), and in spite of supposedly being all about "representation" and "inclusion", they neglected to give us adequate sliders…
  • I'd say I'm pretty good. I've done some interesting conceptual builds, as well as some nice, more "normal" builds as well. I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I'm decent enough.
