    What are your opinions on not having create a style? I personally didn't like it at first but with the demo, there are a lot of options for colors and patterns. But I wonder how it'll be in the full game with furniture and all. What do you all think?

    I'm still slightly bummed about it. I don't think I'll ever TRULY get over it; I'm a builder, so I'm just concerned about how unique our houses will be now. Still, from a legacy playing aspect, I'm not worried at all; with the insane amount of CC that there's going to be (and already is, for CAS!), then decorating and furnishing legacy houses will be a doddle! :cool:

    Personally, I'm not really bothered.

    Why, you may ask. Well here's why.

    I have a Toshiba Laptop with an integrated Intel HD Graphics Card. The Sims 3 runs quite well, but quite poorly at the same time. The Sims 3 Create a Style tool took ages to load up and therefore I never wanted to waste my time waiting for it to load, so most of the time, I just stuck with the swatches. I did use it sometimes, but I honestly do not mind not having it there.

    I am totally irritated about it being gone and that we are going so far backwards as far as that is concerned. I did recolors in 2 so will do them for this, and the community will do many, so we will have them. But what a shame. I use it all the time in 3. I now wish I had not dumped the folder I had with hundreds of patterns for 2. I never thought I would need them again. Sadly, I was wrong.

    I am actually glad that it's not going to be a part of the game. I basically never used like 80% of the patterns and textures that were provided, it always took too much time to load, and it took me even more time to pick one and then I always just ended up using the same textures. I don't want to spend hours to build a house and from what I've seen so far, I am very happy with the Sims 4 build mode as it is.

    I think I used create-a-style a couple of times, mostly for clothing but it just loaded too slowly for me, and I used maybe one or two different textures (if that..)

    For me that news never was a major problem. I am not a builder an in CAS, I always avoided using CASt just to avoid having to wait for all the clothes to load in again after I'm done using it, so I've mostly used the preset colour options by the devs. Coming from that play-style, Sims 4 actually offers me far more colour options than I am used to and since I am still playing Sims 2 I would have even been able to deal with a much smaller variety of colours.
    I do get why it's a huge loss for others, though.

    I won't miss it at all. If you have cool styles and swatches to begin with, you don't need a CAS. Sims 4 seems to have enough options, at least from the videos and screenshots I've seen so far. Plus there's a big community of modders for these games, if anything is missing, they'd probably make it for you without much trouble. And adding custom content is pretty simple (at least from what I see in the demo) - you just put a file in a folder and start your game, it all loads automatically - so pretty much anyone can do it.

    I'm very happy it's been taken out of the game, it caused too many performance issues for a tool that I rarely used.
