Questions about the Gallery on the PS4

«1
So I’ve been having problems with my Household Collection list glitching.
I had almost every plant from the base game, and was working on getting the UFO plant.
When I checked my collection list, it said 0/32😳
So I decided I needed to download a perfect garden lot to just go re-pick the fruit to add it to my list...

BUT after perusing my “Gallery”, it doesn’t look like there are any player made lots or rooms in there. Only a few made by Maxis.

Does that mean we can’t share our stuff with other console players?

So, is our Galley on the consoles really more like an expanded Library?

    The gallery is not online, so, no we cannot share with others. The houses on the gallery that came with the base game were made by Maxis, i believe. However, in updates they have expanded the library to include houses/lots/roons made by pc players. They can't label them as made by "so and so" from the pc for some reason. But to sum it up, no we don't have an online gallery like pc. There is talk of a possible online gallery for console but nothing concrete as yet.

    A work around for collections is to start a different save, turn on cheats, go into build/buy mode, enable bb.showhiddenobjects, then type in debug. You should then be able to find all collectibles and then make a room and save it to your library to then add it to a lot on your main save that you want to complete your collection on. If that makes sense lol

    Yep! I ended up making a perfect garden lot myself and saving it to my library.
    I had been hoping I could benefit from somebody else’s hard work, but ended up getting pretty proficient at some of the cheats, so it’s all good. 😉

    And Households. We've been getting households created by other simmers from the pc including your's truly. 2 of mine got sent to the console library. My Simself and the Stein Household Michelle and Ben.

    I got them to bring in Lily Ford as well. She's not made by me but she's one of my favorite sims. She was actually made in the CAS Demo.

    Absolutely, that's what I was referring to. I wish they would at least put pc players origin id's or names with their wonderful creations. Give ya'll some credit for your hardwork! I can't tell you how long it takes me to try and figure out how to build some of the houses I find on the gallery, lol! I look forward to seeing more of your households or builds in future updates catloverplayer!

    It depends on if the said sim is already on the pc gallery and if it doesn't have packs that aren't out on console yet. I'd suggest requesting this sim to SimGuruLegacy on Twitter and link him to the said sim.

    To be honest. Its no promis that there is going to be a gallery. No Harm intended but till they announce a release date, i have no hopes till then. Still would love it to be able to see what everybody makes. (Looking at catloverplayer and Nikkih 😁)

    That article is misleading. Sims 4 features several online features not limited to the gallery. The game also has Facebook and twitter integration. I’m not sure if the console ports have that as well, but after nearly 2 years I don’t see the gallery making a debut on console.

    I think it will come to consoles, I think if it was impossible the devs would just say it wont happen , like they did for Nintendo switch :-). I believe the reason we havent got the gallery yet was because we were well behind PC with packs and more important updates before it , what's the point in adding something that has content that we dont have and they might just add a gallery maybe not Facebook etc :smiley: @drake_mccarty

    And @Needrar dont destroy my dreams 😂😂 or catloverplayers lol
  • NeedrarNeedrar Posts: 107 Member
    No its not my intend to destroy dreams but just that i don't wanne hope for it. Of just makes me tense when i want something and someone says its coming but we don't know when. Hate that. I want the gallery. But if there is no real date or relevant news then in not hoping for it

    Please keep up you're dreams. That is what makes us loving this game. Living this life and loving it. Peace.
