What would you love to see in this new incarnation of the franchise in the future? (Inspired by a feedback thread on the official forums). What has worked in the Sims 4 so far? What hasn't? Suggestions? What's worked for me: -World looks fantastic, so lush and filled with detail. -Lots of Sims passing really adds some life into the neighbourhoods. -The game runs amazingly on my laptop, so smooth. -I love that emotions affect skills and open new options. -Great new aspiration system with different stages to replace lifetime wish from past games. -Loading screens are short. -Cooking and the addition of gourmet cooking. -Power and water cuts off when the bills aren't paid makes the game a lot more realistic and is a nice change from the repo-man. What hasn't worked for me: -Memory icons from the Sims 2 aren't in the game which I was hoping for. -Babies feel quite limited as they're more bound to their bassinet than in previous games. -When Sims go to work their information panels become inaccessible. -No maternity or paternity leave, would be nice to have the option. -Phone calls from Sims are too repetitive in this game. -Didn't like that there's not as much option for asking unplayed Sims information about themselves like in the Sims 3 about alma mater and career. Suggestions from me: -Weather, saw an idea in a Sims survey that suggested consequences for extreme weather, such as a house being affected by a storm. -University Stage - loved both Sims 2 and Sims 3 university themed expansions. -Bring vehicles back with more functionality, such as they were in The Sims 2. -Minor, but I would love if the power outage would happen more dramatically (e.g. flickering lights). -Would be nice to have a functioning school. -Different stages of schooling, and introduction of exams. -Teenagers to be lower in height than young adults/adults/elders - hard to tell the difference sometimes! -I would LOVE an Open For Business style expansion pack (Sims 2) that actually contained a lot of content WITH depth in the interactivity. -It would be great to have more notifications about what the Sims are actually saying or thinking when a certain interaction is performed. -Again, I would love to see more rich information about the outcome of certain actions in terms of notifications, such as reviews for books written. -It would be great if the neighbourhood could be changed in certain ways by the passing of certain laws, such as introduction of new recycling bins, proposal to build a town hall in future expansions, new facilities at parks. -Also, the neighbourhood could be changed by particular events, charity events or family fun days at the park can be used as an example. -Bring back seasonal events, Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Summer Vacations.
