    Jobs/careers
    Personally, I think we need more careers and career opportunities such as being offered a job or earning an early promotion for doing certain tasks.

    Wants and fears are way too heavy handed in the fear of cheating spouse especially. So bad my couples can’t go out together without having their relationship destroyed.

    Add more swimming/water recreation to other packs Especially Outdoor Retreat.

    Swatches. Color swatches in some cases, but mostly wood swatches. They have updated swatches across the base game and packs at various times but I still can't make wood pieces match throughout the house. Sure, I can make my kitchen chairs and my couches all the same shade of green, but the wood trim on them might be dark brown on one piece and white on the other.

    Worlds

    I would like them to offer individual worlds for us to pay for / download.

    I would like them to create a feature to let us design our own worlds.

    I would like to be able to download worlds others have created via some gallery type of function.

    Just more worlds.

    I miss stuff packs. There's more content that would fit into stuff packs like stationary stuff and anime & manga stuff. Kits are just stuff stuff, nothing more like knitting or embroidery. I just thought of a name now like DIY Comic stuff pack, with an added printer.

    I picked pack update because I would really like to see an update for Outdoor Retreat (larger, swimmable world, more outdoor activities especially watercraft, plus hammocks and hiking to destinations similar to Jungle Adventures)
    And/or an update for Seasons (more seasonal foods and activities and a changing festival lot plus a world that showcases the pack features).

    If getting a world creator tool or the ability to purchase worlds were an option I would 100% go with that.

    What I want most in terms of updates

    1. Real plantsims as in an actual lifestate not a temporary affliction
    2. Updated careers : give all base game careers a work from home option
    3. Realm of magic refresh : fill in the missed opportunities for my favourite DLC. Magic for children, interactable familiars, live in the magic realm, magical lot trait,...
    4. Random small cas improvements : separate facial piercings from earrings, allow link for disguise and alien form (like we can do for vampires), allow to set make up for all outfit categories at once,...

    I think I just want a little bit improvement in every department.

    Updated worlds would be nice. I'd like to see apartment complexes in existing worlds - we only have them in San Myshuno and Evergreen Harbour, which sucks. I was disappointed we got none in the new Growing Together world. Or alternatively, just allow us to create our own apartment complexes (like in TS2 & TS3). I also really want the ocean & rivers in pre-Island Living worlds to be updated to allow swimming.

    Besides that, I'd like teens to be a little shorter. I never used to care how tall they were (and teens in real life are often taller than their parents), but in this game it's hard to tell teens & adults apart a lot of the time.

    I'm a third for Outdoor Retreat. Considering what they've done with Snowy Escape and now Growing Together, and what they've done with Spa Day I think they can add so much more! Would love to see updated hiking with like 4 hiking trails that actually go up a mountain or something - and maybe one of them offers a fantastic view. Add more "wildlife" and let sims snap actual photos when they go hiking. Add canoes and/or kayaks, more sleeping bags and a few new activities (frisbee and bean bag toss maybe).

    I’d love to see the older base game hairs updated and new swatches added to the base game clothing and accessories. Would also love to see the uneven luxury party makeup fixed. There’s a lot of older content that could use some freshening up. :)

    More distinct looking teens would be nice. I would also like to have more apartments, or maybe a way to move into a lot just renting it, not having to buy the whole house.

    Toggles, more specifically I want option to turn off randomized townie generation

    and then I wish to be able to somehow set all my sims in suitable npc roles and have them stay in them because some of my CoL sims and Sages have already slipped out of their roles and also I wish that I could say have Kaylynn Langerak as maid again or choose my sims butler and have them stay in that role say Cordelias butler could really be her butler if i could just set it up myself

    then again, obviously none of this matters if they don't fix these horror bugs we are having atm so more than anything bug fixes

    I chose pack because they did such a great job with Spa Day I would to see this done with other packs. My first choices would be Outdoor Retreat and Get To Work. I would also LOVE some more empty worlds like Newcrest and the option to be able to place apartments. I used to love the apartments we had in TS2. However, if I could pick only one thing that they worked on, even if it meant we never got anything else, it would be for gardening to be fixed.

    It was mostly between a pack, and jobs and careers for me.

    The pack I want to see updated most is Get To Work. I want to see them makes stores like they have done for dine out where you don’t have to own the store to set things ( including food ) for sale. I miss not being able to have an actual grocery store where my sims don’t have to grow plants, call a grocery deliver service, go to Henford on Bagley for the food stall, go to city living festival stalls for veggies and fruit, or go out somewhere to pick their own. Normal quality fruits and vegetables ( from all packs you own), eggs, milk, flour, sugar, etc., even honey, Choco berries and such ( if you own the pack they come with ) should be able to be bought somewhere for a reasonable price so they can be used with the simple living trait ( that came with HoB but should be made into a base game lot trait ). We should be able to set all produce from all of our packs for for sale at normal price ( normal produce, not perfect ) and not have to grow it to set it for sale ). It’s ridiculous that all of my sims have to grow produce to get it at a reasonable price and all varieties ( when I own all of the packs ). 2) The science career needs to be updated so plants at the science facility have fruit on them after the scientist gets to work. 3) All 3 careers need to be updated where we can make our own facilities or change the ones we have without cheats just like the high school in High School years. 4) we need to have a simple clothing trait for clothing so we can make sims buy their clothing if we want to. 5) And, clothing should be able to be bought off a rack, and opened up in our CAS when using a simple clothing trait. 6) Sixam should be given a few lots our Aliens ( or scientists ) can live on. 7) our sims who have one of the 3 jobs in GTW should have a choice to work from home. I want this so when my top level career sims want to have children, they can either work from home or take days off without penalty, or without having to quit. Sims who have worked as a Scientist should be able to use the potion maker, and make things with the construction things at home if they have learned the skill, even if they have had to quit, take time off from work. 8) Magnolia promenade should have a few lots added, it’s so small my sims very rarely go there….. how about a grocery store there? Even a rabbit hole grocery store that sold all produce and other grocery items at normal quality and normal price ( from all packs we own ). This would be appreciated even though I don’t like rabbit holes. And, please don’t just give us a variety of different produce depending on the day. Grocery stores carry all varieties of produce at all times unless there is a pandemic…. Lol. And, if you limit the amount, could you at least let us buy 5 of an item at a time? I absolutely Love Get to Work, but it desperately needs to be updated.

    I also want to see the return of STUFF PACKS! I miss them very much!!

    The second thing I would like to see updated is JOB’s. I want a lot more of them and I would love to be able have work places for them so we can follow them to work if we want to, and we should be given a choice whether to take a day off without pay. or work from home. Even all rabbit hole jobs should have the choice to either work from home or take the day off without pay.

    Extra stuff I would like to see:

    I’d love to see swimming area’s in all worlds with ponds, lakes, rivers, and oceans.

    I would love to see world packs with at least 15 lots, and no premades.

    I’d love to see some apartments in all future packs.

    There are also numerous items we don’t have that I’d like to see, among them are volleyball, pool tables, pool slides, Marco Polo, and sims ( including children ) being able to play catch back and forth with a baseball. And, a mitt, and baseball clutter items. I would also like to see children play without actual play items, like having them play tag, or cops and robbers.

    I want a romance pack with likes and dislikes for romantic encounters.

    I want Hotels and Casino’s.

    Oh, and please give us a costume category ( like we got for Hot and cold weather ), so that for Halloween, Costume parties, and the costume festival in city living, we can make any costume we want for our sims to show up in. I play rotationally and my other sims often show up to parties out of character for what outfit I consider they should be wearing.

    I can't narrow it down to just one thing.

    Packs:

    -The first thing isn't an update as much as it is a fix. Dine Out. It works now in my game, thanks to Carl's Dine Out Reloaded mod. But what about those that can't use mods or simply don't want to. How many years now has this been broken?

    Jobs and careers:

    -I'd love to see some new acting gigs. It's always been this same tiny group of gigs, over and over and over. If they can make new scenarios why not make some more acting gigs? Are give us the tools to make our own.

    Towns and townies:

    -I'll second @Simmingal and the townie toggle and @kerryemmiebeth and more empty worlds.

    -One of my biggest aggravations isn't the town or its residents it's the lots themselves. Why are there any limits at all about placing apartments. Why can't we place our own in any world we choose? And why can we not replace or modify anything on an exterior wall? Limiting apartments to just San Myshuno and Evergreen Harbor is a bit silly. Changing the front door and the windows should be an option. It's a bit mind boggling that it isn't allowed without using T.O.O.L.

    Clothes/Hairstyles/Accessories:

    -Aside from the MAC items, there has been almost no changes to the horrid makeup that came with the game. From day one most of it has been very, very low quality and kind of goofy and theatrical. Ordinary everyday makeup in game needs to be completely redone. Heels and boots for women need to get some love. We have all sorts of hiking boots for both genders, but fashionable boots, ankle, mid-calf, or higher with a variety of heel heights are almost entirely CC. The few we have are costume pieces from Vampires or Get Famous. There really hasn't been much done to spruce up heels either. I'd love to see the modelers who have been working on the really nice sneakers we've gotten lately have a go at these two footwear styles.

    How about the ability for Social Services to call the surviving parent if they want to take their baby into their family in the event of death? I have a Sim who lives on his own and one of the NPCs, a single Mom, died Rock Climbing. I would LOVE the ability to add this Infant to his family because it's his biological son.

    I have to update my request to a more immediate need which is for them to correct the face bug thing so I can play the game. I had some free time last night and was going to open the game until I remembered the issues. That'd be nice.

    Yea I know they said "Sims made prior to x date will revert to normal post update" and all that jazz but I don't want to take any chances.

    I would like Granite falls updated to include a swimmable beach and hiking together. It's a camping pack after all! Also it's the oldest pack and it really needs a refresh. I often take my sims there for Christmas and It would be nice for the skating rink to appear like it does in other worlds.
    Oops , I meant to vote for pack, not other.
