  • You couldn't get the Family Portrait if you were from a country other than the US, either. I have the Sims Mobile and I entered my number but it refused to recognize because it was very different from American numbers. They really need to incorporat…
  • (Quote) Just because you don't happen to like it doesn't make it one of the worst Stuff packs. Have you played with the pack? Among my favourites are Laundry Day and Kids Room, and this one is at least as good as those in my opinion. I have been re…
  • I love his reviews because they are so well written. In this case, I enjoyed all the alliterations and clever turns of phrase to do with knitting, stitching, sewing etc (some of which actually made me chuckle, like "yarnful encumbrance"). …
  • (Quote) That's odd, because I have both of those stations. My Grandma was able to knit to the Focus station and thereby fulfill one of the aspiration milestones, and my teenager both brutally danced and then played air guitar to the Metal station. …
  • In addition to ballet dancing (ideally with partners), slow dancing and the waltz, I would like to see the full range of Latin dances brought into the game: salsa dancing, the rumba (danced with a partner -- not solo like with the rumbasim), bachata…
  • Thank you all -- these are such great ideas and they've given me even more of my own. I had somehow completely forgotten that kids used to be able ride bikes in TS3. So we definitely need to have that ability back, along with all the wonderful kid…
  • (Quote) They did announce it. To my chagrin, you can't sell Fabricated furniture (or anything from the Fabricator) through Plopsy, but you can sell practically everything else that is craftable by Sims (with the exception of novels, which we were …
  • I really enjoyed the livestream and I am super happy about some of the extra things we are getting that I didn't expect or that weren't originally in the selection lists. That is, it's great that we are getting all those socks in many different colo…
  • Actually it is very frustrating to me that we can't have our master crafters sell their high-quality furniture anywhere except through GTW retail, the inventory, or the Freelance crafter career. So I disagree that we should not be able to sell our …
  • For me, the biggest disappointment with Realm of Magic was that they chose not to do anything with toddlers and children in this pack. I would have loved it if toddlers had manifested magic accidentally or spontaneously by doing such things as tele…
  • (Quote) I couldn't agree more: the improved functionality to the Off-the-grid lot trait, and the new appliances that came with Eco Living which go with it are by far the best thing about this pack. I loved Off-the-grid playing before they fixed it…
  • Isn't it also the case that the green acid rain (which comes with an industrial eco footprint) also lowers hygiene for any Sims who happen to be outdoors and sometimes even destroys objects left outside too?
  • (Quote) I had very good luck on the Community Spaces Lots when they were changed. That is, I put sale tables on all my community space lots -- not the first, garbage dump version, but the Maker Space, and the Community Garden (and the Market place…
  • It'd be nice to have the exterminator from Sims 1 back.
  • (Quote) If you use mods, LittleMsSam has a fix (in her Random Small Mods) which greatly improves the nurture interaction and makes it much more powerful. Then the bug boxes seem to work as they ought to do without so much ridiculous effort, and co…
  • They can be easy to miss if you recycle a lot, coming to check out the lot and leaving silently if there is nothing in the bins. Mine was a lady, with the title "Waste Manager." I had the Recycle and Reuse lot trait and a sim with the rec…
  • This tip is not exactly related to Eco Lifestyle, but the patch that accompanied it. I had an off the grid household, and one sim living in it reached cooking level 7 (this took longer than normal; I am not sure why -- maybe with fewer options she …
  • (Quote) It looked like it was in the regular list of recipes under "Cook"; it was just that it was the only one that was highlighted (meaning my sim could cook it) I guess because the main ingredient was raw fish. So I am assuming it wil…
  • (Quote) I think the Poke Bowl was added as part of the Off the Grid update. It shows up for me as an option in Fridges that have no power as long as the Sim has fresh fish. (I haven't tried to see if it can be made with Foul quality or spoiled fi…
  • (Quote) The ones I was thinking of specifically are from the Plumbob Tea Society, their Cottage set, and they are gorgeous (little candles in jars of different sizes, lanterns hanging off poles, candles with a wooden base, candles hanging off a wal…
  • (Quote) I have some nice cc candles which no longer show a flame when lit since the new patch update. Mind you, these same candles never worked off the grid. (They are really old). Supposedly they do now (they seem part of the candle system and n…
  • (Quote) I agree that it is not rigged, but if what you say it is true then I wish we would get more categories to vote on. For example, why not divide CAS up into the categories we have in game so that there could be individual votes on, say, Hats,…
  • (Quote) Calm down. No one hates you. But you have hijacked this thread about Eco Lifestyle and that is generally considered bad manners, which is why people might seem annoyed. You also seem incapable of listening, repeatedly posting the same thi…
  • (Quote) j1z1 gave you some links above in their post and you could just follow them if you want to post in existing threads. Or you could just post your ideas by starting a new thread in a relevant Discussion Forum (like the Speculation Forum).
  • I just watched a cooking show where the food critics and chefs were all saying that cricket is the protein of the future. So I am rather interested to know exactly what the new food recipes involving insects are going to be (besides the Boiling Hot …
  • (Quote) They don't give you honey automatically: you must harvest it from the box. As for their mood, do you ever "Bond with Bees"? That generally improves them right afterwards. What's your sim's relationship with them? I find that the…
  • (Quote) The gurus answered this. They are NPCs as in The Sims 2. However, they didn't rule out the idea of an active firefighting career in the future. I personally hope they bring it back, as it was one of my favourite active careers in TS3.
  • I really liked the video by Iron Seagull (I think) in which he talks about what neighbourhoods he is planning to make industrial and polluted, and which ones he will change to Green. I agree with him that at least one district of San Myshuno, perha…
  • (Quote) I'd prefer it if there were a firetruck (or, as someone suggested in the firefighter thread, a helicopter) too, but I honestly never expected it in TS4 since there is no longer a carpool of any kind in this game. If the developers had done …
  • (Quote) I do not really think this is an example of reusing animations since the firefighter NPC, which has been part of the Sims series since TS1, is finally appearing in this game, largely because players have been asking for its return for a lo…
