  • City living, snowy escape and island living all game with extensive game play, worlds and build buy that took it beyond just representing a yourself as a person physically in the game- you could say the same for get together, discover university and country living representing europeans, americans and the british, if you…
  • Im kind of half on board here. i am happy with all the work being done on game improvements- i think the build buy stuff that's just turned up are a fantastic start and im reaaaally looking forward to the townie refresh and lore stuff that is in the pipeline. What im really holding out for is a whole world's refresh, if…
  • thing is though here in the UK kits are costing us the equivilent of $6.80. £4.99 is a fair chunk of money and knowing that other players are paying substantially less than us (£3.67) leaves a very sour taste in your mouth.
  • oh this, very much this! I would happily buy a sleepover kit with all sorts of sleepover attire because i think the sleepwear and lingerie in game is so limited and was thinking about it only the other day when dressing my most recent family. But i also find that the full outfit category is totally swamped by…
  • I am currently playing an extreme rags to riches cottage living with a gay couple, jake and quince. I thought they were maybe ready to settle down a bit so allowed them to wohoo to "try for a baby". Man what did i unleash?! before i knew what was happening BOTH men were pregnant and when they gave bith, within hours of…
  • well blow me down with a feather.... apart from my love of tagine and Moroccan mint i barely know a thing about Morocco and have certainly never visited the country, or anywhere else in that part of the world! But i do love a bit of moroccan architecture and would enjoy playing with it my game, so please do count me in for…
  • i think we have probably solved the mystery- i forgot that my sim, who is a legacy sim, has all of the toddler and childhood reward traits and probably quite a few whim point traits too, plus i had her sat on a rocking chair and listening to the focus station :D no wonder she was racking up so many points!!! No tiny living…
  • I would actually really love to be a remote game tester for maxis/sims franchise. I have very complex health conditions which basically mean i am so sick that i cant work a normal job, i have to have someone caring for me at all times (think babysitter) because i can get life threateningly ill in minutes, so i cant be left…
  • please can i put in a request that this hair is made available for females of all ages (children, teens and elders) as its really lovely and i'd like to be able to use it on my little girls!
  • i now have this weird concept of having my own complex of brothel apartments with women offering massages on thier massage tables....
  • im a fan of using my yarn swift (the umberella like contraption) and a yarn winder to make my skeins of yarn in to cakes of yarn before knitting. Id love to have a yarn swift in the game even if it was just a deco object, as its an essential bit of knitting kit to me! this.... ...turns a skein..... ...in to a cake!
  • hi Conor, its so lovely to have you here and to actually have the dev team asking the advice of game players, in particular those of us who do knit, on the technical aspects of the gameplay. It makes me feel like the pack has the potential to be really good and indepth. So i will do my best to answer your questions as best…
  • number 28, ladies cardigan and neck shawl really captures the essence of "a modern knitter" in my eyes - it is the kind of outfit i would see hundreds of ladies wearing a variation on when i go to a knitting show. so for me, for a knitting pack, this is the one piece i would most like to see make the cut. Dont get me…
  • finally- what do knitters wear? well the real answer is ANYTHING but there are a few fan favourites out there... my see through converse are a hit with everone- it took me years to track down a pair in my size in the uk because they were a US special one off shawls worn as scarves around your neck are also very popular…
  • Tools of the job- these are some of the things i use and ways i store my knitting, types of yarn etc. how hand dyed yarn is often sold- in skeins, which have to be rewound in to balls or "cakes" to be knitted- in this case to make a pair of socks. this is a yarn winder (left) and yarn swift (right) that are used to turn a…
  • Things that my friends have knitted- sometimes for me, sometimes for themselves, plus things i have seen at knitting shows/shops that have inspired me. Wabbit and Winston the Wonky (W)Aardvark that my friend crocheted for my birthday last year unicorn scarf rainbow shawl caterpilar baby the most beautiful and intricate…
  • Here are some pictures of homewares and accessories that i've made, starting with my hierloom patchwork memories blanket, which i have been working on for 10 years now, is knitted on 2.5mm needles using thin 4ply "sock yarn", using left overs from my other projects, left overs given to me by friends and strangers online,…
  • a few more of my things...
  • my projects continued...
  • i totally appreciate that a frameless bed is missing from the game but i really dont see any relevancy to an arts and craft stuff pack. build buy items should be focussing on furnishing a craft room only- we dont need kitchen, bathroom or bedroom items for a crafting space and devoting development time to creating a…
  • having recently taken a trip to A&E (emergency room) having impaled myself on a double pointed needle whilst knitting socks, i do think there is real potential for a knitting related death. This time it was my hand, in the gap between my index and middle finger (yep, it plumming hurt A LOT) but previously i have sat on a…
  • Hierloom blankets wise, i would really LOVE to see a version of my own hierloom blanket in the game- this is a blanket ive been knitting for the past 10 years, and uses very thin wool, 4ply sock yarn, using left overs from my own hand knitted socks, other projects, left overs from my friends and even from complete…
  • I have to agree about being able to make and sell for a profit not being easy - i really want to be able to sell my wares in the game, but i think it should need to be the right combination of yarn quality vs type of object being sold vs being quick and easy to make to find the few items which will sell for a workable…
  • I am a keen knitter and have been since i learnt 10 years ago at the age of 22. Items i would like my sims to be able to knit: for me these would fall in to 3 categories * Clothing/accessories- I want to be able to knit a variety of cardigans, jumpers, hats, mittens, scarves/cowls, head bands, and most of all, SOCKS…

  • How about a wood burning stove? that would work well in a corner position as well as flat walls, but would also work really well with a cosy asthetic. Nothing nicer than sitting around a wood burning stove on a cold day.
  • I think i like the sound of one or two hideous pieces- especially if low level skill mean's you produce low quality knitwear! I think i was just more concerned that the whole pack might take on an asthetic that doesnt really represent knitting as it actually is right now. There are still plenty of knitting nana's (and…
  • im also getting the chrome warning... if you click on the right bits there is a little line about carrying on regardless of the security warning and then you can access the forum, but its not immediately obvious, for obvious reasons.
  • SOUND OFF!!!!! I think it's high time we start a knitters gonna knit thread to show people what is actually popular right now in the world of knitting. what we we as knitters think should be including in this pack rather than what non-knitters assume should be in it!
