Hey everyone, I was just thinking about the most recent survey and the idea of both the generations and back to school expansions and I said why not make a thread about some ideals for them. I'm mostly thinking about the life stage of preteens because it would technically be new to the sims and the possible Get to School expansion. I was thinking of how they would be game play wise, like what would they be able to do that child and teen sims can't already do? I mostly gained ideas from previous sims games (The Sims 2, The Sims), and even The Sims Freeplay. What if for preteens they brought back acne, crushes, writing in a diary game play features? I mean with GTW they already have it so sick sims can get spots and swirly rashes, right? Preteens can have their own set of aspirations too. They could expand upon the child sim aspirations and carry over to the teen and adult life stages. Traits, maybe they could start off with two traits like teen sims. As for the emotions they could be moody, maybe even rebellious, and have their own interactions specific to them in regards to other sims. For instance they could ask their parents for a higher allowance. Maybe they could get embarrassed easily. Maybe they could play pranks on other sims (though that doesn't really have to be age specific). I could think of more things but they are more for a Generations expansion than just a preteen life stage. Also I would imagine preteen having their own clothing categories in CAS, as wells as objects that only they could use. As for the possible Get to School expansion, do you guys see it as a game pack or expansion pack? Also how would it be done? I know there is a mod out for it now but would you want it like the mod, where you place the lot in the neighborhood, or like done like the hospital, detective, and science lab in GTW? On the one hand I like the idea of it done like GTW, where you'll be asked if you want to join your sim at school. There could be a Elementary and High school in this separate new neighborhood that can only be accessed when you follow your sim to school. You'll have to use a cheat to edit the schools though. On the other hand schools could be done like the mod. Make or download/place the school lot in any neighborhood and set the lot type to elementary/high school. I like this idea the most actually. New career as a teacher sounds fun. I don't want it like The Sims 3: University Life where they just sat in class and raised their hand every now and then or go to a rabbit hole for class. I want it to be more interactive. Maybe go on field trips and have events at the school. They could have annual dances that could be edited like the festival lots in The Sims 3: Seasons. Anyway what do you guys think?
