  • Probably by replacing all the stuff they set on fire or break! :D
  • And here I thought gardening was the lucrative skill... You can pull in big bucks in gardening with roses. Granted, it takes a while to get them to "perfect", but once you do, each bloom is worth 80 bucks, and you get four per plant. You can go (day by day) from one plant, to five, to nine, then twenty-nine, then…
  • Help yourself:* Sixgun Sam and the Phlergoids (Sci-Fi) * Apocalypse next Thursday, about lunchtime (Mystery) * Eggs Hussarde 3 (Cooking) * Game of Moans (Romance) * Avast, it's an Onion (Cooking) -- probably written on that Talk like a Pirate day, I can't remember. * The Thing on the Mountain (Mystery) * Potty Time…
  • Allow me to offer a few suggestions: Hyacinth (blue flower, probably better suited to a girl, but you never know) Yinmin (brand-spankin' new blue pigment invented by some guy over in the USA in Seattle. Y+In+Mn are the three components of the crystalline pigment so the name is sorta morphed into Yinmin.) Vaskas (Greek for…
  • One of my child Sims had a fear of the dark, and it took a couple of tries to get her over it. She had to have a confident mood outside, but the wording was a bit subjective (I thought she had to GAIN the confident moodlet outside). Perhaps the fear of fire might take a couple of goes to eliminate. You could think of it…
  • I have a few thoughts on this:* I'd like to see scarfs (maybe as a necklace option). * Jeans that actually reach the ankles! * Winter clothing that has collars (re: scarfs, poor sims must get cold necks in winter). * Some really scruffy clothes would be good too. Dirty-kneed jeans, tops with patched elbows, buttons missing…
  • I voted no, only because I think there's probably enough life stages for now. If there was more of a difference between how Teens looked compared with Young Adults, that might smooth out the age curve a bit. I just tend to play with Young Adult -> Adult Sims almost exclusively. I have a few young families with toddlers,…
  • I had a look on the EA site - apparently it's only a PC / Mac thing. Sorry, I didn't realise you were using a console. https://help.ea.com/en/help/the-sims/the-sims-4/the-sims-4-build-a-bundle/
  • Yeah, after playing around with curved walls, I really have to remind myself that it's not "curved walls" but "curved ROOMS". Just sticking a curved dividing wall to chop a room in half is way more fiddly than I expected. I'm hoping that with time the ceiling glitches can be ironed out, and the ability to use the convex…
  • I think Seasons is my favourite. I don't mind Get to Work, but it's got a few bugs that detract from it. Now, if there was a DLC that allowed you to put the Sims' phones in a blender, microwave or garbage bin, it'd be my favourite, hands down. EDIT: If you're in the market for DLC, you ought to consider that "build-a-pack"…
  • Perfect stuff. Apples, lemons, avocados, onions. Sims don't have taste buds, apparently, and will happily scoff down an onion raw with as much gusto as a bunch of fresh grapes. Perfect seems to give a higher "gift from nature" moodlet value. Worth nothing that perfect apples seem to be pretty good gifts too.
  • This happened for me as well, but I had a desktop icon to fall back on. The game ran ok, Origin wasn't trying to update as far as I could tell. It does seem insistent on ramming the EA launcher down my throat though. EDIT Hitting Control+R if you have that screen with blank areas instead of games to click on may work.…
  • I'm certainly guilty of having used people's names as Sim names - never the whole thing though, just the first name or an interesting surname. Recently I wanted a few more silly names, so the last few Sims I've named have been "Instant Karma", Razor Blade" and "Sourdough Loaf". I also have a massive spreadsheet with about…
  • I think it was the Sims 3 that had a "Stupid" trait - I can't remember if it was a hidden one or not. Maybe it's been integrated by default into the Sims in the newest version of the game. Hooray! Free bonus trait!
  • Sims certainly do some weird stuff. It's part of their charm. RE: Brushing teeth, I don't understand the desire for a Sim to spit into a sink with a higher monetary value. I would have thought that the distance to the sink was more important.
  • I could relate to "Fear of psychopathic Roosters" if that was a thing. We had one when I was growing up (appropriately, we named him "Aggro").
  • Curved walls are fiddly. The actual "curve" part still has to have an orthagonal support piece aligned with either the vertical or horizontal axis. What that means is you can't have a true circle shaped house, it's sorta squished on the north / south / east / west sides. It's not that noticable in the bigger walls though.…
  • Thanks, @elanorbreton, I'll have a look at that. Lilsimsie videos are often worth watching.
  • Do you know if curved walls are part of the patch, or only included as part of the DLC ? (What I mean is, will curved walls be available to everyone, even if they decide not to get the High School pack?)
  • Having native support for saving outfits and makeup styles would be really handy. I use the MCCC mod, and it allows you to copy and paste various elements of appearances. So for instance, you could copy hairstyle and makeup from "everyday" to "formal". Or copy accessories from "swimwear" to every outfit. It's pretty…
  • Being able to allocate a bedroom to a specific child would be a nice quality of life feature too. Then we can have the parents send them to their room for being naughty, or being told to tidy up their room. There really should be a check to see if the Sim is within a certain distance of a fridge or cooking device to…
  • I manage to make reasonably decent houses. I noticed reading through some of the replies that some people renovate existing builds. I don't think I've ever done that. Unless you count knocking out a wall and extending a room on one of the default houses. It's interesting to look at styles of houses and see how close we can…
  • I'm looking forward to this. I wonder if it will be scalable enough to make a torus shaped house. I have a couple of sims who'd probably enjoy living in a donut. EDIT: Just thinking more about it, curved staircases might be a handy future addition to build mode too.
  • Could these options just be rolled up into the "preferences" dialogue where you choose other preferences like favourite colour, music etc? Can you opt out of choosing a preference and just go for anyone with a pulse ? Full disclosure - the adult-related mod has sexual preferences (in quite extensive detail). I believe we…
  • The last ones I've purchased have been through that "build-a-bundle" thingy. I'd estimate I've bought the last twelve pieces of DLC that way? When the game was first launched though, I used to get the packs one at a time. I'm not too bothered with getting the newest packs as they're launched, so getting a few every so…
  • Oh well, whatever it was doesn't seem to matter. The game's running alright.
  • Possibly. I'll keep an eye out for reviews and such once it's been released. If I'm underwhelmed by it then I might pick it up in a sale towards the end of the year.
  • My suggestion is for a kit called "Bumper Crop Kit", which is related to gardening for the most part.* 8 new crops (2 for each season, one of the Summer ones being sweet corn) * a few styles of overalls * galoshes / wellingtons / gumboots (whatever you call them in your region) * a bigger sprinkler - bigger effect radius I…
  • The symbols are the same as the ones used by medieval alchemists and astrologers. I don't know if that helps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_symbols There's 10 pages on this thread and I've only read the first two, so this info may already have been discovered in pages I haven't got to yet.
  • As an Australian, I agree. Christmas in winter is completely alien to me. Christmas is for the beach, lazy afternoons in the sun enjoying a food coma. It'd be nice to be able to adjust the weather a bit (not so much with the weather machine). What I mean is having mild winters and hotter summers for latitudes closer to the…
