Best:
Beaches and swimming in the ocean

Worst:
Mermaids.. sorry :D I should probably add that I just could not care less for them.
Rabbitholes diving and careers!

    Best : Island clean up/conservationist career.

    Worst : lifeguard career. Nothing wrong with it, just not interested.

    You have to name a feature that is given in the EP, not what you would want to be in it :)

    best:mermaids, the jobs/work related stuff, beautiful island, swimming, cas/build/buy, being able to live on island

    worst:Not being able to swim in other worlds "may" only be temporary. I'm guessing not being able to scuba dive with your sims and ladders only used for decks.

    Mermaids are beautiful but they just do not interest me, now give me the beach and water and you are cooking with water. It would have been better with some resorts to boot.

    Best: In depthness (pun intended) of the ocean swimming feature
    Worst; Lifeguard.. that should have been an open career, not a rabbithole.
  • ChadSims2ChadSims2 Posts: 3,195 Member
    Best: Beaches and swimming in the ocean
    Worst: Mermaids and trash clean up are equally bad

    Sims 4 went from "You Rule" to "One of the stories we want you to tell"

    Best: mermaids, swimming, CAS/BB, dolphins

    Best : swimming in the ocean and mermaids

    Worst : no mermaid tail for children and toddlers. I get it if they don't have powers but it would have been nice if younger sims could swim in the ocean with fish tails.

    Wait what??? This is not an active career? I do not know how many disappointments I can handle, but this is just another dream that is smashed off the table.. geez.

    Best: The gorgeous aesthetics of the build mode options and how beautiful the world is.
    Worst: Was watching an early release Lets play and they said the dolphin and swimming interactions are kind of glitchy. Other than that, I really have no complaints!

    So far I have greatly enjoyed all the glimpses of the game that I have seen and I am eagerly anticipating it.

    Best: The beauty of world and its sea life/ oceanic animations (shoals of fish, sea turtles, chickens on the shore, waterbirds, swimming frogs near the waterfall, crabs), the mermaids and dolphins, unique objects and clothes with an island vibe, vibrant architecture, four new harvestables, new recipes and drinks, new semi-active career, sun tanning and sunburns, and off-the-grid living.

    Worst (these are mild annoyances, not deal-breakers): deep sea diving as a rabbit hole, part time jobs as rabbit holes, only 1 long-sleeved top for toddlers (come on!). Finally, bongo drums as bar stools but no actual playable drums (what a mean tease). Couldn't they have added playable drums again like in Castaway? With a new culture it would have made sense.

    Best: The design of the world, it looks very pretty. The CAS items are looking very good too.

    Worst: The rabbit holes.

    Yep, and they faked it by showing a sim in a Lifeguard outfit standing on the beach during EA Play, maybe you can work from home and stand and pretend to guard the beach? Not sure what they even talked about.

    Apparently NPC lifeguards show up when you visit the beach, but you cannot play as an active lifeguard yourself. So you may see some on the beach 'guarding' it.

    Best: the beauty of the world
    Worst: diving being a rabbit hole, inability to build ground level pools on the water lots (which is most of them)

    :) I love tropical islands and Beaches & All that comes with that adventure for residential and vacations.

    (AND WITH THAT BEING SAID)

    :'( hint the words TROPICAL and BEACHES ...so for all things why would the lifeguards be a rabbit
    hole? IF THIS IS TRUE ...geeesssh and i know about all the answers that may state "oh the game isn't designed to handle it " or whatever and it is what it is

    i love sims and like i stated many times before i am a "day 1" fan i have been here from first launch of the sims i have all packs and objects from 1-4 ever created... and i know that they know this is nonsense IF THIS IS TRUE

    Can i live with it? YES ....will i die because of it? NO .... will my sims lives change drastically because of it? NO.... Will i enjoy the beautiful island and all that comes with it? YES.....

    Am i aware that sims 4 was created to be played another way and then they changed it up and thats why so many things can't be done and they are trying so hard to save it? YES YES and YES and with that being a diehard fan i guess i have to DEAL WITH IT B)
