    There’s a spot below a waterfall in Lani St. Taz where it looks like it’s designed like a hot tub. Was this supposed to be a hot spring?

    Beach lot is hidden in the basegame (June Patch), I guess they plan to do something later.

    Fire Dance is available with the Dance skill in EP02 Get Together.

    Good list, but don't forget the ability for a group to play "Marco Polo" in the pool! That's from TS2 and I absolutely loved that gameplay!

    It seems SimGuruGrant told Marco Polo was a nightmare to do in TS4.

    TS4 or TS2? Nothing worth doing is ever easy. And what should his statement mean to us?

    Yeah, it's still something missing in the game.

    Do you think they'll add all these fun things you listed to TS4? I don't know if they can, given the limited game engine. I'm already looking forward to TS5. If they make the game engine strong, I'm hoping they add the things you've listed to that game.

    I would like to get them but I doubt they'll do more content about this theme.

    Don't get your hopes up, ClarionOfJoy. The rebranding and some posted guru comments related to it indicate we will be stuck with this mess well into infinity. All the same, it would be nice if we got at least some of the things listed.

    I'm not stuck with that mess. I feel no loyalty to TS4. If they're not going to put out TS5 within two years, I'm just not going to bother waiting. There are other game studios who see the void EAxis has created with their laziness and lack-luster efforts and they haven't been idle.

    They should be all different as each is a different game. Why can't you like them for the series each is a part of instead of thinking any should be just like the other? I love them all to be different and if I want to play a particular version then I will load up that game that has it.

    @Writin_Reg You didn't tell that when Toddlers were missing...

    That is a sims life stage - not the same thing. Besides Sims 4 toddlers are not like the Sims 2 or 3 toddlers by far. They run circles around either of those and you know it. Comparing tropical pack THEMES with an entire sims life stage being missing is a far cry apart. Sims 1 is the odd one - it should not even be in the same lists as much about it is little to do with Sims 2 and 3 - or even most of 4 - especially when it cam from Sims life stages in the game - they had kids, newborn and adults - period. No aging. No days off from work or school. They had content that was not even in any of the other series -

    Toddlers in Sims 4 are cute and all, but they’re really not that awful in Sims 3 either (especially with Generations installed). They’re fine by me. Must add that I like it they can’t really take care of themselves, that for me is not a downside.
