The Sims 4 Base Game Rant #2

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?

Game fail.

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.

No Toddlers Or Pools In The Sims 4 Base Game

The Sims team has just released a new blog on The Sims 4, and have confirmed that Pools and Toddlers will not be part of the game come September.

“And though pool building won’t be available in September, we do have a new Fountain Tool so you can create sophisticated landscapes. Whether you were a novice builder in The Sims 3, or an experienced pro, I really think you’re going to love The Sims 4’s build mode.”

“And while we recognize that some of you will be disappointed that pools and toddlers won’t be available when The Sims 4 Base Game launches in September, you should know that we’re building an incredibly strong foundation that is capable of fulfilling every one of your desires in the years to come. The future of is bright!”

How To Create Your Perfect Sim In The Sims 4 – IGN

http://www.ign.com/videos/2014/06/24/how-to-create-your-perfect-sim-in-the-sims-4

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.

IGN: Building A Sims 4 Family + New Information (Video)

New info

  • There will be Maids in the game as always (both for one time cleaning and recurring service)

New Create-A-Sim Pictures + More information

More information!

  • The game is over 70% done. Gamers Master Magazine interviewed The Sims teams months ago.
  • The Sims team is focusing on the base game. No expansions just yet.
  • Gurus cannot comment on the life stages of Sims yet.
  • Children taken by social workers will be put “[into] household management, but won’t be able to adopt through adoption flow. But, you can “play it out.””
  • There are bonus traits.
  • The team can’t talk about bikes either.
  • There isn’t a Woohoo skill anymore! (This is due to the fact that people weren’t comfortable with it, and the Sims team were concerned about the rating.)
  • Sims can sing in the shower.
  • Aspirations can change.
  • There are 6 needs in the Sims 4: Bladder, Hunger, Energy, Fun, Social, Hygiene. “Others are subtly integrated into the system.”
  • You can create multiple families in the same town unlike in the Sims 3. There is no need to “start a new city for a new family”.
  • There aren’t any turn-ons or turn-offs like in The Sims 2.
  • SimsGuruGrant has refused to comment on cars.
  • The concept of Whims is similar to the Wish system previous Sims games have had. Whims cannot be locked (like with Sims 2 Wants).
  • There are now aspirations instead of Lifetime Wishes.
  • “You can delete all the Sims living in the world. The game will continue to randomly generate other Sims that come visit though.”
  • “There isn’t a stylist career in the base game. When you go back into CAS it’s just for changing things like clothes, makeup, etc.”

The Sims 4 Genetics + New CAS Screenshots!

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. 2871815 2871824

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.

Really excited for CAS!

I’ve added a slideshow with more CAS pictures!
