  • I don't think this pack will require seasons, I feel like the fact they included hot and cold outfits in base game was with the intention that it could be used in packs like this one. I also don't think we're getting hotels or search and rescue features, they'll probably try to add hotels in a game pack if they ever do add…
  • I've been playing a lot of sims mobile lately and if it weren't for the real-time cash grabbiness that's all too typical of EA and phone games in general, I'd say that I actually enjoy it more than the actual Sims 4. I like that there are different stories you can pursue, that there are hobbies and didn't even realize the…
  • With all of that nonsense about spark'd and this little hint with the pink plumbob (they could have easily posted the generic green one everyone knows, pink was a choice in my opinion), getting married in vacation worlds being patched in and whatnot I should hope we're getting a romance themed pack. Online dating, an…
  • Right now I'm really regretting buying Eco lifestyle. Luckily I got it 25% off but my sim is plagued by this bizarre desire to randomly stop whatever she's doing to do pushups or stretch. She's never had the active trait or any aspiration related to it and although her fitness skill is at 5 it's definitely a bug because…
  • I have to say...I like the meat wall. Gonna pretend it's sim meat and make [reference removed by EA_Mai - let's keep the topic safe for the younger Simmers]. But I'm pretty sure it's meant to be a plant based meat "substitute". I'm not sure if making it a wall that sims just carve from was the best idea visually
  • I'd have been disappointed if they didn't add this.
  • I've been playing a lot only to try out new deaths and terrorize my sims for stress relief. Toddlers are fantastic, the problem is that my sims are terrible at taking care of them so I rarely use them. If I do I have to cheat their needs or delete the highchair. Why can't we just feed toddlers on the floor? And I find it…
  • Don't forget the plugs/gauges. I'm fine with plugs but I know a bunch of townies are going to spawn with them. In my game, every sim spawns with that super long hair from DU. I love that hair...but not when everyone has it.
  • If placing the community lot in other worlds triggers pollution effects in that world then I could live with that. That way, buying this expansion wouldn't just automatically pollute all worlds. The lot would act like a toggle of sorts. But what's probably going to happen is that you place the community lot and only that…
  • I love the aesthetic and feel of Windenburg. You have the countryside and then the more modern "city" area and tons of lots that you can use to make it feel like an actual town. I know you can switch worlds with ease but I like my towns to feel like full fledged stand alone towns. Also, the weather is often rainy and…
  • I agree completely. It's why when I brought up some things I would want in a farming pack I said that yes, there are some things in a farming pack that could be considered eco living, like composting. But farming doesn't equal eco living. And no/low technology doesn't exactly equal eco living. I want a low tech farming…
  • I have the same question. What you just described is probably going to be what happens. You're going to try to hold a vote, a celebrity comes in, distracts everyone and the lot will spawn so many sims that they're going to have routing issues and won't be able to even vote. Also you'll probably just see sims coughing…
  • I couldn't care less about expansion packs. When are they going to give us traits with more depth? I miss neat sims and slob sims having a harder time getting along. A toggle for story progression, celebrities, vampires etc (not that I'd ever toggle off vamps, I love my supernaturals)? Or memories so we can look back and…
  • 1: Just because a pack is announced and a group-whether that group be percieved as being large or small- doesn't want it does not mean that no one wants it. And vice versa. 2: Everyone has different playstyles, interests, wants and expectations and not every pack is going to meet everyone's desires. 3: It's okay to…
  • Wow, seeing them reminds me of highschool. Tons of people wore plugs. I'm surprised they didn't have these in discover university. Everyone would call them gauges, but according to my friend who's now a piercer and tattoo artist-that also used to call them gauges-they're called plugs and gauges are just the different sizes…
  • I know, but some of those features may be in EL-like composting seems to be in some capacity. I was only saying some of the things I'd want in a farming pack. Just what came up off the top of my head. Hence the "etc". I'm not interested in nectar making or canning so I didn't think to mention them
  • I think the people who are complaining that this pack reuses ideas are mad because they were under the assumption that this pack would be something we've never had before. It's true we've never had a pack centered around eco living but we have two other packs that already have aspects of eco living in them. And yes,…
  • I think the main reason people wanted a farming pack is because so much of the focus in recent packs has been modern. When I say I want a farming pack I personally mean I want to play Story of Seasons and Stardew Valley but in the sims. I want a town that feels like taking a step into the past, where no one uses cellphones…
  • I thought they were chicks or something but they're bugs? They're huge, I feel like I'm going to puke. If I do eventually get this pack when it goes on sale I'm keeping it polluted. Sims have things far too easy, everything is vibrant and lush and I'm happy sims can die by flies again. I think the clothes they showcased…
  • This pack isn't exactly unexpected to me personally, considering IL and TL. TL and EL are hot topics right now, and simmers expressed interest in the EL theme during the first community stuff pack vote. Of course, that was under the assumption that EL would be a stuff pack but still, interest was there is my point. It's…
  • A world with at least 20 lots, actual plantsims and more long hairstyle options would be nice.
  • I think my main problem is that I feel like the entire pack's theme is only going to apply to the town that comes with it like City and Island living. As in, you'll only see the effects of "reducing your carbon footprint" in Evergreen. So if you don't want your sims to live in Evergreen you can still make them eco friendly…
  • Eco living was the second most voted for thing when the first community stuff pack vote was happening I believe, so it's definitely something someone wants. It's funny to me that people are saying both community stuff packs were rigged as if it's fact when in reality they have no evidence. Lots of people wanted laundry to…
  • Medieval (or some variation of it), Superheroes or Themeparks are my guesses. Unless they're just gonna make Strangerville the Sequel. No one ever said surprises had to be good
  • I hope Arts and crafts stuff wins. We already have spa day and fitness stuff so I feel like self care can take a step back. We also have mood changing teas already I'm not sure what new teas will do outside of maybe giving longer moodlets. And I feel like they should have made a vegan trait when they gave us the vegetarian…
  • I'm hoping by "villany" they mean criminology. Which would make sense if we're going to have a lawyer career and we have a detective career. But if they did mean criminology why would they not just call it that? They're making it sound like you can go to uni to become a criminal and it makes absolutely no sense. I'm sure…
  • I don't get it either but I do remember it bringing a new way for sims to die. That could be why people want murphy beds? That's the only reason I'd want them anyways. Also it'd be a new bed type which would be cool to have I guess. Murphy beds and bunk beds don't make sense to me in a college pack but I'm biased because…
  • I agree. It's a self-fulfilling circle. The other ages weren't given anything to make them interesting so people mainly play the adult life stages seeing as there's little the other ages can do. Maxis sees people playing these two life stages and they assume it's because it's the favorite life stage and not because they…
  • As someone who loves supernatural play I actually agree with OPs perspective. The base game is supposed to be the foundation. Packs expand on that foundation and are where we get the fun stuff. EPs shouldn't be used to give us basic things that should be in a life sim game by default. For example, laundry should be in the…
