Q:can sims still get sick??
No, there is no sickness or disease in The Sims 4.
Q:Hey :) I'm wondering, when will your video about the pros and cons in The Sims 4 be uploaded or even done/made? I'm just waiting for it and sure it will help very much! Thanks for all and thanks for this amazing blog.
We are filming on Thursday! And you’re welcome :)
Q:we are at least getting cars, right?
I’m 99% sure that cars won’t be in The Sims 4, though nothing has been confirmed yet. Here is my reasoning:
- We already know that Sims can travel anywhere by walking outside the neighborhood boundary and teleporting to their location. SimGuruTrev has stated that transportation doesn’t really make sense with the way neighborhoods are set up.
- It doesn’t seem likely, given that other modes of transportation (streetcars and steamboats) are just decorative.
- SimGurus have been answering many questions on Twitter, but they have ignored all questions about cars so far, which suggests that they will not be in the game.
I hope that was helpful!
Q:Sooo...what they're saying is that our Sims are going to be a baby and skip right into the child stage? How is this even a thing? It just seems extremely odd.
I agree. I’m beyond shocked and exasperated. If toddlers can be taken out, nothing is safe!
Q:what can we do to get them in the game? this is HORRIBLE. you have 12,000 followers, surely you can do something to help :(
There is a petition going around that you’re welcome to sign, though I’d be extraordinarily surprised if it did anything. It definitely doesn’t hurt to sign, though.
I’ve been thinking of ways to use this blog to send EA a message. We are a big community…we have power and we can use it. At the same time, I want to just delete the blog altogether, and stop devoting my time and money to a game that doesn’t deserve free marketing.
EA needs to be held accountable for their actions. The biggest problem, unfortunately, is that even if 20,000 people decided not to buy TS4, it wouldn’t impact sales at all. The Sims 3 sold 1.4 MILLION copies in the first WEEK of release…so we’d literally need half a million people to boycott the game to make a difference. I’m not sure what we can do, but you’re all welcome to shoot me ideas.
Q:how do you feel about TS4 thus far? lots of news recently
I’m very worried about the closed neighborhoods. I was fine with the realization that we’ll be facing loading screens…less rabbitholes, more active lots, sounds good to me!
However, I was shocked to learn that each of the five neighborhoods will only contain a maximum of five lots, including community and residential. That means that all of Willow Creek will contain 20-25 lots. That’s only about ten families and ten community lots!
Sunset Valley had 92 total! Willow Creek is going to have nearly 1/4th the content that Sunset Valley had! I think that it’s unacceptable, and it’s a real shame.
Q:The sims four sounds worse and worse every day to me.
Actually, it seems now that Graham wasn’t classifying community lots as lots; he kept calling them “areas” around lots. So I think there are five homes and several community areas within each neighborhood.
