    I wonder if it could be story progression? That’s probably waaayyy too wishful thinking on my part.

    Cool. I wouldn't speculate too much about it though, don't want to hype it too much.

    I personally would be extremely disappointed if it was that because of my playstyle but I know many have been asking for this feature!

    I hope it's stairs! They have been talking a lot about them in their tweets. I would love some different types of stairs for building.

    I really don't want to get too hyped for this one; it happens all too often that after what seems to be a great content patch comes the not-so-great ones after it. They aren't even very specific about it either; it could be literally anything. It also seems like they're focusing more on giving us free content while we're waiting on the next pack for purchase.

    The use of the word "feature" tells me it's more than new hair, clothes or ceiling fans. It would suggest something bigger. A feature would be like the COPY feature we have to copy rooms or roofs, etc. that make building easier.

    Yes, a feature would be something like the copy tool, LGBT+ update, locking doors.
    If it were CAS or objects they would use the word "stuff".

    I hope it'll be something like a 'greater' feature unlike what the recent patch was.

    I think it’ll be ocean swimming after the content updates + the sand snowman + the tropical toddler pool. I think some kind of tropical pack is coming.

    Well, the last update wasn't a "feature" technically but yeah, I know what you mean. Sooner or later they are going to need to work on some things that more people are asking for.
    I really wish they wouldn’t do this. They claim they want to be more transparent and open and honest with fans but yet they persist on teasing with vague statements. It’s the online equivalent of putting a few cats among the pigeons and watching the feathers fly. Once the hype train starts rolling full steam ahead, they are then quick to put the breaks on it by saying: “But don’t get hyped!” I mean come on, with that referenced tweet, what do they expect? They certainly don’t want people reading it and going: “meh” It’s a rather bizarre communication strategy. Talk of the game is becoming a focus rather than the game itself.

    They can’t have it both ways. Be open and transparent like many other game companies are with future content or say nothing until you can reveal. Because they cannot complain when fans get upset with their current strategy of communication. Practise what you preach.

    You make a bunch of really good points. I'm sure I'm not the only one spending more time speculating than playing these days.
    And then they get frustrated when we question it....

    Now that you say it, yes. I’m 100% speculating more than I’m playing! That’s not good.

    I almost (had to remind myself where I am for a minute) can't believe that anyone would speculate over this. It's like telling us the sun is going to come up tomorrow.

    Honestly O love them doing this, and giving us information. Like they said their marketing team decide when are things ro be announced and their guru account is just there for communication. If the people at the marketing told that it is better to announce this feature at a specific date, then they won't announce it before that date. Their guru account was there to communicate with fans but still they have to follow what they are told to them.

    A guru once said that there was once a fear of developers to go on tweter and interact with fans because they knew that the can't announce things soon and some questions from fans. But one guru(can't remember who) break in and started to chat using social media. She still can't announce soon but the connection with
    fans is the reason why more joined in.

    I would rather have them do what they are currently doing now, even if its vague rather than left in the dark.

    I hope it's personalities. When the game will have better personalities and cars I'll be happy.

    I mean I would love a bunch of things added to the game:
    Better personalities
    tweens
    stairs
    cars
    turn on/offs
    updated babies/teens

    I could go on and on. I hope it's actually something people want. :)

    I still do have a list of features I'd like to see return in The Sims 4. I hope it's one of them. The top one is swimmable oceans/a beach destination, although that's more of a GP thing. Vehicles (owned or public) would also be nice.

    Two thoughts. Is near the same as their soon? And if something has to be researched to see how it works, doesn't that mean it's nowhere near being released anytime 'soon'. :D

    ETA: More speculation, on theory. If something has to be reseached so they can figure out how it works doesn't than mean whatever is being researched doesn't actually belong to them or created by them (he said they need to research how it works) in order to tweak it to make it the best. I'm guessing a UI change, incorporating a third party feature.

    ETA: Was research the right word if it was a feature they created wouldn't the word be test? So, that's why I'm looking at this differenly than anyone else.
