    Okay, so obviously take this with a grain of salt, but there are certain hints that the next pack is city themed.

    Firstly, from Day One we have been teased a City in the background of Willow Creek;

    Now with Get To Work, they have made the City even closer than before;

    Also, in the same Survey that Get To Work was included in we got this Expansion Pack concept as well;
    CITY LIVING

    It’s time for your Sims to experience city living. Meet brand new neighbors and friends as your Sims live in a loft or apartment in one of the many high rise buildings. Your Sims will be able to check out the latest bands and DJs and dance the night away in the new rooftop night clubs. If you feel inspired, you’ll even have the opportunity to start your band and try to make it big!

    and recently, some new Concept Art + an in-game object Render leaked online:

    boothWhite.jpg

    which fits perfectly with the description that there will be DJ's.

    We had clues that the first Expansion Pack was going to be Active Careers and Retail Themed, could this be a clue as to what we will see next?


    I think you have something there. I hope sims can dance facing each other when we do get this pack and I hope it brings back hot tubs.

    I want the next EP to be Nightlife/Apartment Life soooo bad....I just hope the apartments are like in TS2 and that they leave the whole celebrity system for a Superstar Pack.

    A city would be awesome. Nightlife and other careers all bundled up with apartment living. Sweet! Hopefully the apartments are like the Sims 2 as someone mentioned before. Standing outside their doors gets tedious.

    I Would really love to see more play on genetics. Like various heights etc. That would totally rock!

    I really think it will be the Downtown EP.

    In EP01 GTW, the hospital is almost in the downtown.

    I really do hope this isn't the next EP, if only because out of aaaaaall of the expansions across the entirety of the Sims franchise, the city ones are always my least favorite. Always.
    You'd think that with how many threads there are screaming for toddlers and Family Play, the next EP would be focused around that? At all? No? Just me?

    Only way you'll get me excited about this is if:

    1) A patch is released that actually lets Sims dance with each other! As in actually FACING each other! And interacting! With each other!! Possibly even TOUCHING! :open_mouth:

    2) I see a toddler working the mixing table.

    Ugh, I really don't get why people would want toddlers, they're boring as ❤️❤️❤️❤️, and you can barely do anything with them.

    The only age group I want to see improved is teenagers, and mostly cause right not, it's often far too hard to keep them apart from adults.

    With how little lot sizes we have, apartments will be a welcome addition even though I miss toddlers (I'm hoping they patch this in anyway). I also really really want restaurants and real bakeries (as it stands in GTW, customers don't eat at the bakery and you can't really sell coffee), so I would be quite content with the addition of a City-themed EP. I hope they'll give us a bunch more jobs (non-active), aspirations and traits with this EP- those are desperately needed, I struggling to create unique sims as I run out of jobs/aspirations/traits.

    Possible job ideas that would fit a big city theme:
    - Lawyer (business law, criminal law and entertainment law tracks)
    - Marketing (research and advertising tracks)
    - Journalism (business journalism, investigative journalism, alternative (paranormal, etc), fashion magazine, gossip columnist)
    - Pharmaceutical (pharmacist track or biochemist track)
    - Consulting (accounting/ auditing, business, tech, or supply chain tracks)
    - New music career tracks (DJ/ producer or music producer track)
    - New chef career track (molecular gastronomy track, also new molecular gastronomy skill)
    - New business career track (Sim Street broker track)
    - New sports career track (sports agent track)


    Trait ideas (in general):
    - jealous
    - manipulative
    - shrewd
    - prudent
    - coward
    - brave
    - righteous
    - kleptomaniac
    - workaholic
    - shy
    - charming (would go well with the charisma skill)
    - thrifty
    - vegetarian

    Earlier the Downtown EPs were TS1 EP03 Hot Date, TS2 EP02 Nightlife & TS3 EP03 Late Night.

    It's possible it will be TS4 2nd or 3rd EP.

    I hope it will include this stuff
    There are some features I would like to see in the Downtown EP :

    - Job : Political career
    - Job : Law career
    - Job : Business/Office career
    - Job : DJ (NPC and playable job)
    - Residential lot : Apartment like TS2 Apartment life and Penthouse like TS3 Late Night
    - Residential lot : Rent a lot
    - Community lot : Restaurant (NPC and OFB)
    - Community lot : Clothing & furnishing shops
    - Community lot : Arcade
    - Community lot : Dance club without day restrictions
    - Community lot : Movie theater complex
    - Community lot : Stadium
    - Community lot : Casino
    - Community lot : Basketball court
    - Neighborhood decoration : Animated Subway/train like Stilwater in Saints Row 2
    - Neighborhood decoration : Highway bridge with an animated traffic
    - Neighborhood decoration : Blinking neons like Las Vegas
    - Build mode : Skyscraper building shell
    - Build mode : Ownable car/bike/motorcycle + animation like TS2
    - Build mode : Elevator
    - Build mode : Spiral stairs
    - Buy mode : Built-in wardrobes
    - Buy mode : Pool table
    - Buy mode : Dartboard
    - Buy mode : Black lighting
    - Buy mode : Wall speaker extension for the same music in the room, it could be linked to the DJ booth
    - Buy mode : Photobooth
    - Buy mode : Urinal, Toilet stall and Porta-potty
    - Buy mode : Vending machine
    - Buy mode : Magazines
    - Buy mode : Murphy bed
    - Buy mode : Bunk bed
    - Live mode : Roommates
    - Live mode : Roach
    - Emotion : Juiced/Be uninhibited/Deeply fine


    About Stadium and Movie theater if it's not possible as a community lot, my sims should be able to go there like when they go to work at least.

    The day, the downtown is the city of business, the most of townies should wear a three piece suit/skirt suit.
    The night, the downtown become the best place for social activities, the businessmen are gone instead the party animals invade the town until the morning.

    I would prefer if we could build actual skyscrapers (build each floor) rather than having a building shell. Maybe we would get more floors like we did in the last patch, and maybe we could have a copy/paste feature for rooms and floors in Build Mode to copy and paste apartment layouts in each floor. This way we could customize our skyscrapers in the exterior and in each floor instead of having a premade exterior and few accessible floors.

    bring back a celebrity system and getting invited to parties, that was so cool for my sims to make a name for themselves! Also is there a way for a sim to kill another like in real city crime?
  • SpecterCodySpecterCody Posts: 602 Member
    I am liking your thinking on this one, seems pretty plausible! I would enjoy a new night life style expansion a lot! I am hoping they add restaurants and a way to designate room groups as apartments to have multiple apartments on a single lot.
  • SimalleyaileSimalleyaile Posts: 847 Member
    I would love some sort of city life expansion, and now that I have GTW, the city in the background is closer and taunting me! If it's the next EP, I'll be excited.

  • ShannabooShannaboo Posts: 22 New Member
    I like the Downtown Expansions as well, but it defiantly should be bundled with the apartment high rise packs. The also with every expansion pack they should add 2 Jobs like get to work. For example, The new night life/ city can include Club owner/chef restaurant owner.

    Then, just we should hope they allow us to create 16-level buildings (like TS2) in the next game update.

    I reckon they will include a mixture from the 3 old gen sims like apartment of life and late night and night life in that Ep or Gp and new features and I reckon they will add new jobs to,to control a sim in that will be nice to see.and agreed about the jobs and traits and all other ideas

    I'm not a big fan of nightlife/city expansions. For me they were the most boring together with university. I am waiting for a generations expansion to make family play more realistic..
