  • Personally, I love that the kids clean up without me telling them to. It's like having a bunch of tiny maids! However, I get that this is not a universal opinion, and I'm sorry it's breaking the immersion for you. I know I have stuff like that as well.
  • I've been ranting about whims since they first vanished. I want new AND IMPROVED whims. Ones that are fun to fulfill, and even a little challenging (CHALLENGING, not tedious!). (But not too challenging.)
  • OMG thank you! I'll have to start doing that! I really appreciate your help @simgirl1010 !
  • That's true. And Japan is popular--I mean, I can't blame it, but still. I've heard people saying there should be an anime-themed pack. Really? Anime? I think Japan has had its time in the spotlight. As @RavioliWusGood (love the username; do you want ravioli rep in TS4?) mentioned, the rest of the massive continent of Asia…
  • I didn't participate/buy most of this stuff, and the July patch has, to use Sims 4 lingo, created a "festering grudge" within me, so I picked Sims Sessions. It was a lot of fun, and it was free! <3
  • It's not either-or. The Sims team could easily split their time between adding to representation and adding to gameplay. Representation is an important issue among the younger crowd, and honestly, I think that's a good thing. It would be boring if every Sim were the same. But in spending so much time promoting it, they're…
  • I don't know if this is an unpopular opinion or not, but I'm getting irrationally angry about the stairs/teleportation/lag glitch. I'm a simple woman with simple wants, and this glitch is forking everything up. Did the team even test this patch before they released it? It seems way more many people than usual are having…
  • I chose Werewolves. Werewolf fans always get the short end of the stick. :( Anime is all right, but I think it's too general a theme to implement well in The Sims. I would love to be proven wrong, though. ;)
  • I'm sorry this is happening to you! I think the reason the game isn't unplayable (yet) to me is that I'm constantly following one of my Sims; I divide up every Sim hour into an equal amount of time per Sim. But that's a calculation I make naturally, and it lines up with my playing style. It shouldn't be a necessary way to…
  • I don't know how iconic he is, but I always liked Cycl0n3 Sw0rd because of his name. Maybe he's due for an appearance soon! I would like that.
  • I think this is actually a great opportunity for lesser-known artists to strut their stuff and maybe get some new fans in the process. I'd never heard of any of the artists for Sims Sessions, and that was part of what made it so fun. There are a couple of artists on the list that I don't recognize, but that doesn't mean…
  • You know what I hate? You can't add birthday candles to things that you baked, even the cakes! What if I want my Sim to have a carrot cake or Bundt cake for their birthday? It really bites that you can't do that. They should be able to blow out candles on cupcakes, too.
  • Personally, I'm a fan of the 1430s. ;)
  • I always thought it would be interesting if a Sim could die of a broken heart. But then, seeing how common Sim death by old age is, and how common other Sad moodlets are, maybe it would be happening too often? Plus, can you imagine? One Sim dies, and all of a sudden, they're all dropping like flies. Actually, that *did*…
  • You know, I just thought of something. This wouldn't get rid of abductions, but what if there was a special chance card that had a chance to take place during the abduction? The abductee meets with an alien scientist, who says they're performing experiments or trying to create a number of hybrids or something--use your…
  • Yes, but I "cheat"--if it's an activity I want them to like, I usually make sure they're in a good or neutral mood before they try it. And this isn't a tendency--it *is* how the game decides if someone should Like or Dislike a certain action or type of music. A Sim will *never* decide they like an activity if they're doing…
  • Rarely. It's not even as fast as I'd like it to be unless everyone is asleep or at work or school, and even then, it goes back to Speed 1 when someone gets a text or a visitor, or something at the mailbox. It's very annoying, but I can see why that's necessary for people who don't want to miss those things. I always put it…
  • I agree; the whole pregnancy thing never sat well with me. At least in this game, you can send the baby back to the homeworld, but that doesn't protect your Sim against the pregnancy itself. It would help if the Sim was at least happy about the pregnancy, but the game seems to imply that they're not even aware of why…
  • Better whims and Sims doing more interesting things (like picking up a new skill) autonomously.
  • Aren't more humans lactose intolerant than not? I suppose in that regard, it makes sense that this would be a thing in the game. But traits should affect more than a Sim's diet. Vegetarian pretty much every trait in this game isn't really that great a trait, but it was in Sims 3, and it's more of a lifestyle choice than a…
  • If the "jumping glitch" is what I think it is, it's happening in my game, too. I do not use mods. I repaired my game post-patch and even cleared out my caches. So, I don't mind the visual effects of this glitch, although it is a bit unsettling to see your Sims just appear at their destination all of a sudden. No, the…
  • I can't handle challenges that revolve around killing your Sims. If a Sim meets their end of old age, or because of an accident (say, becoming Enraged, Hysterical, or Mortified without my input), so be it, but I can't bring myself to lead them to their doom, and I've felt horrible on the occasions where I have. I gave up…
  • Sometimes my unpopular opinions are even unpopular with *me*. Like, I saw a comment I made a while back that said I liked children more than toddlers and even thought they were cuter. What!? No, past me. Toddlers are waaaaay cuter. But here's another one that's in conflict with, well, me: I want Sims 5, like, yesterday. I…
  • I loved the event! I really like concert and festival atmospheres. I know it isn't true, but I always feel like nothing bad can happen at these kinds of events, because people are happy and there's so much love in the air, and there are children around with lots of adults to care for them. It's a nostalgic, warm kind of…
  • Oh, trust me, I've tried all that. It's either glitched, or the method of pulling it off successfully is so convoluted that it's not even worth the hassle for me.
  • I feel that one of the problems with this incarnation is that there are all these "free updates" with every major DLC that introduces elements that the player might not have wanted in their game. Eco Living is a good example of this. Instead of confining ecological features to EL, the team put some ecological material into…
  • Yeah, apparently they try to go to a bush that's closer to where they are, but out-of-bounds. The one at the end of the maze is in-bounds, but the Sim usually won't try to pee or WooHoo there unless you direct them to do it. Seems kinda silly that they would try to use a bush they can't get to, but...well, Sims gonna Sim.
  • Murphy's law, eh? I had one instance where a Sim died in a fire. It was while playing Jungle Adventure. I think he set off a trap that set him on fire, but it's possible that he got bitten by an insect--I think there's a kind that can cause you to catch fire? Either way, it took him an hour to die. Sims have gotten…
  • I hear ya. I wish I could disable phones completely. They annoy the HECK out of me. No, I don't want to join your club! No, I don't want to come to your birthday party (and now I feel like a 🎁🎁🎁🎁 for turning you down)! And I don't care if you know that I made friends with someone! Although I will say, I don't get texts…
  • That's definitely a neat idea! Although I have to admit, it makes me laugh a little. "Plan social event > Funeral" Even better would be if it can be one of those goal events where you get special objects depending on how successful it is. Sims Mourn at the same time - 0/4 Raise a Toast to the Deceased - (hahahaha, did you…
