  • First time I played it I had no issues and actually enjoyed it. I even interrogated the wrong suspect a couple of times, I didn't feel like it was overly obvious. Repetitive, sure, but well, I sort of had a story and used my imagination to keep it interesting. Second and third times I tried playing it yeah, I had a few…
  • I don't think all builders are building with live mode in mind, some just want to create for the sake of making nice-looking things and I get that because I like touring builds or watching build videos on youtube just because I love how they turn out or to see their creative use of MOO. However, maybe the community should…
  • I don't write anything down either. I do take screencaps when I remember to, but keep them to myself. At times I do wish I had documented a game better when something interesting happens, but then I never do. You never know when a story is going to turn out interesting until it does. I usually have a general direction I…
  • I wanted ghostbuster over grim reaper career too. I kind of like having the grim reaper just show up and being able to interact with it as an NPC. I'm not sure about playing it. Has this been done before in past games? How does it work? Is is a rabbit hole or do you travel to a lot when there's been a death and complete a…
  • Happens more often than you think lol. Ghost Sweeper Mikami had a ghost assistant and the ghostbusters have a pet ghost.
  • Looks fun enough for a stuff pack. I want to learn more about the new career. Also, I think those cute spirits can turn ugly, so that's nice.
  • I'm honestly not asking for gore lol Just something in the vein of Grimmy is all.
  • They play music lol. They won't follow your sim, but I think you can make them move around with the datapad, so there's that if your sims are into really fancy toys. I think you keep the relationship? But not like with pets, as they don't have autonomy, and they won't do anything useful like on missions.
  • They broke two of my saves. They overrode everything, canceled actions I wanted my sims to do. Even with autonomy off, my sims would still do NAP activities compulsively. Even after I had cheat repealed them and turned them off. I know these were bugs, but they went on for too long and those saves never recovered. Worst…
  • Me too :| It does annoy me a little when I get the same popup consecutively, but to be honest that has happened to me more often with careers than with teenagers. I do think character value traits are more impactful than base traits. I often cheat them into my CAS-made adults. The main issues was it left us feeling like…
  • Maybe not several because I don't stick to a single play style. But the things is I enjoy building a lot, which means the more BB options the better. So I'll probably end up getting all packs, even if not upon release. Even farming :O
  • When I finally got Batuu, I knew what I was in for and it was that bad BUT I was pleasantly surprised by the droids. I feel like they're what familiars should have been in Realm of Magic. Of course, there's that issue of them not being functional outside of that one world, so. Last bad surprise was NAPs. I really thought…
  • The name Happy Haunts gave me that sort of humorous vibe that I've come to expect from this game and always enjoyed, them taking something dark-ish and making it a little silly, like the Grim Reaper. But that's not the same as having pokemon-looking demons/spirits/whatever. I love tiny creatures too, just not for this…
  • I'm excited to get more content, I think I've gotten all I could out of the mountain pack, but yeeeaahhh I was really hoping anything to do with Happy Haunts would be a GP. It's true the last few Stuff Packs have actually been pretty decent in spite of their themes, so it could be ok, it's just always going to feel…
  • I agree so much. The swatches, having the exact same window in three packs, and "matching" windows and doors being different sizes annoy me so much. (Cabinets not matching counters annoys me in real life too lol #middleclassproblems). At least they did start giving us all-white and all-black for those who suck at color…
  • Building, then CAS and gameplay. I love creating and playing out stories, but I find it hard to get into it in this game for obvious reasons, while Build Mode has really provided me with hours upon of hours of fun and a way to unleash my creativity. This year, though, I did play a lot more in Live Mode than I ever had…
  • Maybe if it were just a stuff pack with that new lot type? 'Cause other than taking our sims grocery shopping a few times (I don't see how we could make that interesting more than once), I can't imagine it would be that different from running a retail shop, gameplay-wise. Or if we wanted some supermaket-related BB items,…
  • Could be fun. There's just two things to keep in mind: You'll be reading translations rather than text written originally in the language you're trying to learn, so there'll be a lot of "equivalent" slang that's not necessarily how people really talk there, as opposed to when you watch or read things originally conceived…
  • I still get more enjoyment than frustration out of the game overall. If I didn't, I would stop buying it. I do try to voice what I like about it so that they will keep that up, but it's true that I'm more vocal about the things I don't like. Still, what fun I get out of it is at least enough for me to justify setting money…
  • Another one for Vampires for being so well done. And I'm fond of Get Famous because I ended up playing so much with that active career.
  • I don't mind them either, I don't think I pay much attention to them.
  • I was thinking of making it a ski resort (generic lot type I guess? In Sulani I use the pool lot type) and turning the other rentals into maybe a restaurant or shops or somewhere to use the rock climing wall, and leave residential and rental lots to the other neighborhoods.
  • I doubt I'd bring current events to my game lol. Especially transitory ones that I really, really hope are over with soon! But they wouldn't get in my way either, just like they don't in real life (well before the pandemic, I would wear them in public transport if felt like I might be coming down with something so as to…
  • No, I get what you're saying. I think I just panicked as if they were going to take one look at this thread and start working on the next Batuu :D :D Simmers living in fear lol
  • It's just, does it really... expand? For whatever other flaws they may have, Get to Work, Get Together, Cats and Dogs and Get Famous, apart from Seasons, at least added things that weren't restricted to a single world while still, most of those, giving us a world (and two of the biggest ones: Brindleton Bay and…
  • Yeah ok I finally went on a climbing excursion and it all went by pretty quickly, without a hitch and there wasn't that much to do or see. It was beautiful and it made for some really nice screenshots, but I feel like the trail in Selvadorada was equally as beautiful yet more interesting. At the very least, in the jungle…
  • I tend to agree. I'd like us to be able to interact with more things in a world, but I'd rather my sims don't disappear somewhere I can't follow and then come back. I'd rather they place more food stall type things if anything so that I can see the world come alive, see the sims actually doing stuff.
  • Thanks, I didn't need to sleep ever again lolol
