Just got word from The Sims Team that we won’t have toddlers or pools in the base game of The Sims 4! That’s a giant leap back from what we’ve had. The only time we didn’t have those things was in the Sims 1 and TS1 had pools so wtf is the problem?! I get that they’re trying to accommodate lower end machines but this is just too far. I like playing with my Sims’ babies. Babies. I didn’t say kids. I said a specific age group.
Which brings me to this: Our Sims will be able to have babies, but will they age from newborn baby to kid straight away? Or will they just be born as kids?
This is a fail all around. I just don’t understand how they could do this.
The Sims Gurus are trying to get around it by saying “Oh well we have new fountain building tools, so shut up and be happy! :D”
No. I will NOT be happy EA! Fountain building is not pool building, and it sure as hell is not toddlers.
I think I’m going to stick with The Sims 3. This is absolute bullshit.
Comment below and tell me what you think of this new major update.
The new Create-A-Sim tool in The Sims 4 is one of the most powerful in the game. It’s been completely overhauled from The Sims 3 wardrobe-style customization, and thanks to its wide variety of features, it’s now much easier to make your perfect Sims. I recently went hands-on with Create-A-Sim for an in-depth look at everything it has to offer.
I’ll be honest, and admit I’ve spent a ton of time messing with Create-A-Sim inThe Sims 3, trying to get my Sims looking just as I hoped. It’s not exactly easy to create everyone in your life in The Sims 3 though, as it simply doesn’t let you customize certain details. But now that The Sims 4 Create-A-Sim is here, those days are long gone.
Starting off with a new Sim, the only sliders you’ll use are for his (or her) weight and fitness level. Once you’ve got that down, you’ll use your mouse to select any part of your Sim to adjust him however you want. If you want your Sim to be fat, drag out his belly until you reach the desired bloated effect. Do you want him to have giant forearms and a broad chest? Easy. You can even change a Sim’s posture this time around by dragging his spine, making him slump or stand tall.
In Germany’s latest issue of “Sims Official Magazine”, images of the genetics system in TS4 have been revealed! The system will allow a player to create children, teens, adults, elders, and give them the ability to be related to one another. (Think of the engine in The Sims 3 which allowed a player to finally make Sims a couple rather than just roommates or married.) Here are some screenshots of the new system. https://www.flickr.com/photos/simsvip/14278638648/
The screenshot below shows that only children can be created in CAS, but it is unclear if the game engine in the pictures provided is up to date since the icons look a little different from the ones shown at E3.
