    Worst: Mmm, I guess the fact that we're getting a third world in a row where it doesn't snow?

    Good ol' tropical snow.

    Though maybe you can MAKE it snow if you make use of the weather control device.
    Doing that while a whole lot of Sims are swimming might have... interesting results, though.

    This. If it can happen, definitely best :D. I love how IL ties in with seasons, and BB & CAS.
    Worst would be the lack of underwater gameplay. I was looking forward to building an underwater aquarium too...

    Best: Always love a new world, lounge chairs, tropical themes, watersports and oceans

    Worst: don’t care for the occult so don’t care about mermaids, wish you can have rental lots so you can live or vacation in Sulani

    Best: I guess a couple of the items, interesting new world, mermaids

    Worst: Mermaid toddlers and kids get no fins no love for supernatural kids again

    That's fun I guess :) Because to me the whole rental system is so plum annoying. I would have much preferred it if instead of cottages in Selvadorada you had a rabbit hole hotel that functioned like tents and then the rest of the lots were buyable / liveable.

    There's so many. The lot traits, part time jobs/shifts, events, water activities, tanning... Worst features don't exist in the Sims, imo. I love everything. (Unless it's so poorly done that it's game-breaking.)

    The worst: rabbit holes, specially the lifeguard career (could have been like the semi-active ones ala City Living), and the secret cove being just about chance cards. I wish we got an underwater secret lot with scary mermaids or something like that).
    The best: everything else!!!! I can't wait to build, and populate the islands.

    Best: world, ocean swimming and beach activities, mermaids, Odd Jobs (I will definitely use these all the time, I'm super excited about this!!), and the conservationist career

    Worst: mermaids have no special animations for turning into mermaids or back into a human, that would've been neat. Also, I would have liked a hotel lot trait. I can live without it but I hope we'll get it (maybe with an Alpine pack??). And the lack of group activities.

    The worst: The fact that trash spawns in the island, I wish there's a cheat to turn that off.

    Bienchen has mods that allow you to click on to destroy leaf piles and the coffee cups left around SM, so she may well create a mod for this too.

    I’d been hoping for an underwater lot/neighbourhood for the mermaids too.

    Best: new CAS/BB items and the new world, especially as its influenced by conservation!

    Worst: probably mermaids imo as I don’t think I’ll really use them, but I’m glad those who wanted mermaids have got them

    Best: Mermaids
    Worst: Rabbit holes. Theres a few missed opportunities there and it's a shame.

    Contrary to what some others have said, I like that they added in the conservationist career and pollution on the island. Imperfections make it more rounded and its more rewarding if your Sims make it their goal to protect the beautiful world they live in.

    I was actually thinking about starting a thread about the number of snowless worlds. Nice to know I'm not the only one who noticed. But I count 4 snowless worlds in a row. Selvadorada, Del Sol Valley, Strangerville and now Sulani. Sure one of them is a vacation destination butiit still counts to me. Selvadorada seems less special as destination with so few snowy worlds.
    I like 3 out of these 4 worlds a lot but my hunger for always warm, never snow worlds is satisfied now, I hope the next one will have a more familiar temperate climate.

    BEST: New careers and making mermaids although not actually playing them.
    WORST: New build and buy items really only fit in Island Living environment

    no new whims I'm so upset
    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims
