    I am very happy with certain features they added with landscaping but they left out the beautiful array of flowers/bushes that Sims 3 had that you were able to assemble together to create lush garden beds. A majority of the flowers do not mix or are formal. The flowers which I am speaking of were Sims 3 basegame. I especially miss the hydrangea bushes :(! Also there is things missing like outdoor tables and deck chairs. I will be waiting impatiently for these things as I love landscaping.

    Other things not of great importance I hope they introduce vending machines quickly, create a normal sized desk microscope, and also include a regular ole telescope.

    In other news I began building my first Sims 4 house and it is almost finished :D! It is a large sprawling brick house with lush landscaping. I thought I would struggle with Sims 4 build mode going from Sims 3 to it but NOPE. I took to it like a duck on a junebug. I am afraid Sims 3 build mode will be a horror to touch and may need therapy if I touch it. I was always frustrated at myself and thought I was just a bad builder because it took me so long to build. My largest problem is I am indecisive and I let the house sculpt itself instead of going for an end vision. Sims 4 allows me to be that kind of builder. I built the guts of the house within an hour where with Sims 3 it would of taken me four plus hours. I have spent about four to five hours on it with the house almost being complete. This is including the learning curve I have traveled. Even without the learning curve in Sims 3 this house would of taken me around four days to build. I love building but I hated decorating but not now. I spent so much energy and time on the building that by the time I was done with that I wanted to move onto something else. However since the building process is so forgiving which equals less time building I feel like decorating the interior. It no longer feels like a chore.

    Lastly a random picture of the garden arches that I love called Natures Welcome-a gate option. So beautiful!

    Your garden pic is BEAUTIFUL!!
    There are outdoor tables and chairs @Cody !! Did you not find them? There aren't much, but they are better looking than in TS3.
    I agree about how decorating used to be such a chore (building was for me also), because IT WAS! No more! Just yesterday I built 2 houses in 3 hours and was having a blast the whole time!!!!

    There is like on or two and I am not talking about picnic tables eithier. You know the lawn chairs where you lay back in, they are long. Have all sorts of names. Gazillion of them in Sims 3. I want some of those! Also there is no cushy looking benches. Have you seen that weird bench where I think it is supposed to be cushions lol?

    Building houses is now a breeze and it blows my mind! It also aLOT easier to get nice looking houses with little effort. I want to see some pictures ^_^!

    One more off on the rambling path I LOVE the miniature vehicles?! Like the tram and steamboat. They are perfection.

    I felt the same way about the flowers, I loved how you could arrange them in TS3. I hope they'll change that in a future patch.
