  • Will Wright contributed to my passions of computer animation, AI and life simulation. I wouldn't be on my career path if it wasn't for him. Also, he'd probably be ashamed of the lows that The Sims franchise has stooped to with the execution of Spar…
  • No, I don't believe so; however, I do remember filling out that type of survey earlier in the year. I just don't remember when... :\ Actually... Kind of like @SelinaKyles' point, I had like 4 less packs when I took this survey last. LOL. That might…
  • I only have Seasons and Island Living, and can vouch for both. I think Seasons makes the game more complicated, and if that's your thing, then go for it. I'm also interested in City Living, but the CAS items aren't my thing. Also, please only buy …
  • (Quote) Hello, would you (or someone here) please specify which tiles they are? I understand Spa Day has one illuminated floor tile and "pool lighting" (can be applied to any floors and walls), but those are all I know of. And they're on…
  • @fatbat21 I would, yes. Some people say that it doesn't make a significant difference, but they also usually use their laptops on a table. I use my laptops on a cooling pad, just to be safe to keep it from suffocating. If you use your laptop on a ta…
  • Hmm... OK, not sure if this has to do with it, but it's only 8GB of memory? You can do better than that in 2020. Pro: Your drive is a solid state drive (SSD) which should make your experience very fast. (Con: it's only 512GB) Pro?: Your processor s…
  • That actually bugs me, too, but I think @Nindigo is right that it is part of the local culture. ✌️ ☮️
  • (Quote) I'm tempted SO OFTEN to play The Sims 3 again. :D It was my favorite. I never got to zip around in boats, though... What expansion pack is that?? I have bunches of Sims 3 CDs right on my shelf. I pass by them everyday. The temptation haunt…
  • What a fun idea. I would recommend increasing your graphics settings in your game, so that your Sims in the pictures don't have jagged edges.
  • - Awesome build/buy mode items - Decent selection of new CAS items - Swim in the ocean - Enjoy the beautiful, scenic nature of volcanoes, waterfalls and sunsets - Make sandcastles anywhere in Sulani - Befriend dolphins - Go SCUBA diving - Awesome cu…
  • Yeah, great observations. Why can't our Sims read on the bed, but they can sit and chat on the bed? Interesting! Can kids jump on beds?
  • (Quote) I'm loving all this talk about a farming pack... :lol: Really! Anyhoo... What about a "Make your own recipe"? Like, you choose the type of food (soup/stew, salad, cake, pie, etc.), the ingredients and the name (and it would defa…
  • @UndeadNinjabit — I just saw this video, and thought of you!! :) But I think your ideas would make everything about this better! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tH_df8E3ACo -sketches
  • (Quote) This would be like The Sims 4 equivalents of The Sims: Hot Date or House Party. :lol: It would fit right in-line with The Sims. Bring on The Sims 4: Questionable Living.* Haha! :) (*Open to suggestions.)

  • (Quote) That would be funny if The Sims 4 introduced a service with a play on the word Uber. :blush: You know, like how we have, well, ... Plopsy. (shudders)
  • I think it's odd that arcade games didn't come with Bowling Stuff. I just ... expect an arcade at a bowling alley. :lol: Slot machines would also be awesome in the game. Sorry I don't have much to add. "Yes" to your suggested arcade item…
  • (Quote) I would like a tractor in the game... and/or a riding lawn mower. :lol:
  • (Quote) Oh... This must have been what happened in my game. My game's firefighters just stand outside. They danced once. NO idea why. The music was pretty good, but the firefighters were not of any help. My front door isn't locked.
  • (Quote) They updated the toilet fires to still occur when your Sim eats spicy food or is angry, regardless of the Eco Lifestyle pack. (Quote) (Read more here) The rest are definitely bugs.
  • (Quote) This was my initial thought when hearing the word. A “poopy” word. I don't even like typing it out. My ears don't like it, and my brain doesn't mesh with this onomatopoeia.
    in Plopsy ?? Comment by sketches July 27
  • Not that we can see, but scarves would definitely be awesome.
    in Scarves? Comment by sketches July 27
  • (Quote) This was in The Sims 1! Why not? :) I would like my Sims to couples dance. Slow dance, tango, swing dance, whatever, but please, dance with each other — not just next to each other. (Quote) Sims don't even sleep "with" each othe…
  • (Quote) I don't have City Living, and it happens all the time in my game. Since I prefer not to use cheats, then I just keep my Sim in the Fashion Design industry, and have her give townies makeovers. 😂 It's wild how accepting they are of it... so…
  • I really suspect it is an accident. Hopefully they will hotfix it. I mean, like @Sketch793 said, why would an item have "Comfort: 5" yet also be marked as "Uncomfortable"? And why would they change THAT for this patch? And they d…
  • (Quote) Yes, that would be a bug. :grimace:
  • (Quote) @bixters Yes, this is an active issue in the Bug Reports forum: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/OPEN-Lot-taxes-seem-too-low/m-p/9171466/highlight/true#M133665 After this July 23rd patch, my lot's bills were a good $750ish. I thought,…
  • I wish I could say, "Yes" ... so badly... :'( Especially after this comment:(Quote)
  • (Quote) Oh no! That's lame! Then YES, my vote is YES!
  • (Quote) This is really interesting. My Sims also complain about (seemingly) invisible trash. I figured it was probably in their inventories (out of my control), or maybe it was an item of trash underneath an object (somehow). But now that you say …
