My favorite townie as a kid was Claire Ursine because always gets pregnant a few days after the start of the game, or maybe she's in the first trimester or something. Anyway I'd usually always play her because I usually play generations, and because sometimes if you're lucky the baby ends up with her genetics instead of the father, Jared Frio's, genetics. Sunset Valley was so much fun and never got old to me. I'd always have a blast playing out the drama. I miss the Sims 3 so much, I need to download it again but torrenting it takes me like two entire days if I want every expansion+stuff pack plus the Sims 3 store shit (and I always do, this is non negotiable). I've just been playing the Sims 4 because I'm too lazy to download the Sims 3 or figure out how to run Sims 2 on windows 10.

Goopy Gilscarbo was my favorite when I played TS2. I don't remember much about him except he had the best name, best dress sense and was a romance sim. TS2 is the only game I've consistently played. Sometimes I'm tempted to try TS4 but I hear a lot of complaints about it so I'm still not sure if it's worth it. How does it compare to 2?

My favorite pre made sim is Stella Terrano. I would make her get a good job after university, she lived in a big ass mansion which was decorated with all the unique items I could find (and which I built myself so it was just a big ass square in the biggest lot I could find), she would change jobs as soon as she got the last promotion and the itens I wanted. Then she would explore, spending her hard earned money on more useless stuff to decorate her mansion and later she would have alien babies so strangetown would be all aliens. I think her daughter would marry one of the alien babies of those scientist guys and that's where it would start. Oh, and I always turned her into a witch too for some reason.

I never played much with premades, I played with the Bird sisters from sims 3 pets and Polly Maloney from Bridgeport. I went to Bridgeport and looked at all the people, there was a high rise building and what looked to be a rich lady in a fur coat living in it, and I thought oh yeah let's go be a rich lady. But I select her to play with, and she literally lives in the basement with 3 pieces of furniture… I felt bad for her so I played with her and sent her to college. Pic unrelated it's an alien bartender I made, I love aliens I downloaded a futuristic world (Cronor) so I'm turning the default generated service sims into aliens and robots.

I started with the sims 4 and have lots of fun, I tried 2 and it was ok, trying 3 and I’m bored out of my mind. The open world aspect is actually not interesting because there’s nothing to do between locations anyway. I was pissed to find out that I can’t even visit another neighborhood. Everyone loves 3 so much, what’s wrong with me?

Starting at sims 4 was your first mistake. I think that if you are used to great graphics and simple gameplay, it might be hard to jump into a game with worse graphics and considerably more to do. There is definitely more to do in the sims 3 base game compared to the sims 4 base game.

3 sucked and everyone hated it when it came out. the lighting is ugly, the base game worlds are trash (download a modded world it will be slightly nicer), the sims have ugly round pudding faces and you need a shitload of modded sliders to make anyone halfway decent looking. the pathing in 3 is the worst of any in the series, especially on BG worlds. if you have the pets pack make sure to disable wild horses because they are terribly bugged and were never fixed. same with zombies from the supernatural pack, they just ruin your game. there isn't anything wrong with you, people just have to circlejerk about how the previous game is better than the current one. it will happen with 4 when 5 comes out and everyone hates it. it happened with 2 when 3 came out too. if sims 4 had released a create-a-world tool and had a color wheel nobody would have ever complained about it. the sims community needs to just accept that there is always a new hotter sims edition that people will move to and no amount of trash talking or screeching about the quality of the new one will make people abandon it.

I loved the apartments in sims 2. There were less restrictions so you could make terraced streets or bedsits with communal living areas and everyone’s kids would play together.
Also I miss designing neighbourhoods. Sims 4 really missed the mark when they only gave you premade neighbourhoods with mismatched driveways on their 8 lots.

ranting about how sims 4 sucks incoming Why isn't there a little checkbox in the sims 4 game options that lets you reset the strangerville mystery? That's so fucking stupid. I like strangerville, it's fun, but how does it make sense storywise to take your sim who solved the strangerville mystery to the mother to reset it? It's fucking stupid. I like to redo the mystery every couple of generations or so and I didn't know that you had to cheat to get a keycard, to then open the secret science lab facility, to then walk to the mother, to then click on her to reset the mystery.
Do console players just play it once and that's it for each new game? That is kind of insane to me.

Aww thank you anóna. Here’s some of the inside, modelled on an art gallery/museum in my city.
Side note: does anybody know a non-cc solution to getting rid of the short fence around the top of the stairs while keeping the mezzanine effect? Without it the game autofills floor, so the fence creates a separate room which I've deleted the floor from. I can’t drag out the mini-fence because it still autofills floor. There has to be a more aesthetic way.

BIG AGREE. I started with 4, then went to 2 to 3 to 1. I bought 4 at the end of 2015 when they had fixed a lot of the base game problems, (added pools and fixed bugs). I've waned to play a mainline sims game for years but never could so I dove into 4 when I was able to and loved it. I didn't play 2 in it's heyday but i understand why it's beloved. I have a lot of fun with it . 3 was eh, I felt sad I didn't enjoy it until I added mods like NRAS story progression and NRAS cheats now I'm liking 3 more but I still mostly play 4, but I definitely see it's limitations compared to previous entries. I haven't given't 1 much of a try.
If they ever release 5 it's going to be a mess because of trying to force multiplayer.

I think EA would have to be run by literal retards to make 5 a multiplayer. Nearly every sims player I see mention it has thought it was a dumb idea and that they didn't want it. I honestly can't wait to see what ts5 will be like. Best case scenario for me would be ts2 with ts4 graphics and if not with ts3 open world, then at least with a color wheel and also with more lots than the pititful 4-8 lots per world. Worst case scenario: multiplayer/microtransactions/subscription based game.

It depends on your gameplay style. If you like making your sims self sufficient or off grid, Cottage Living adds a lot to that and meshes well with some of the features of previous packs like Eco Lifestyle.

Snowy Escape doesn't add anything consequential. The skiing, rock climbing and snowboarding skills don't have any use outside of that activity and hot Springs are just hot tubs that can fit more sims inside. I'd say it's only worth it if you really enjoy the Japanese aesthetic.

That game was riddled with bugs and it was in part due to its art style as well as feature bloat. I do think Sims 4 lacks depth in the features it does have but asking for expensive and pointless things like color wheels makes no sense to me.Plus these bitches are just gonna make black and white houses with a pop of maybe purple with the free reign of the whole color wheel anyway, let's be fucking real.

I wish Maxis was interested in deepening the family interactions or centering a pack around drama but that stuff seems to be totally out of scope for them. With the more contained nature of Sims 4, which is similar to Sims 2, I'd really like them to focus on bringing the chaos back. I'm also open to something new though, I don't need old features as long as it's actually fun and not just like 5 items to interact with and a new dialog option.

My current sims 4 save was made solely to breed good looking sims so that I could save all the attractive sims and then populate my first save with good sim genes because my original legacy was in its 8th or so generation and I had the auto populate houses option turned on so the world was full of ugly randomly generated sims and they were just not fit for my legacy sims whatsoever.
So I started a new save and painstakingly edited every premade sim to be better looking and then fiddled with MCCC woohoo/pregnancy settings and then turned off auto populate houses with randomly generated sims and then let them go at it.
Now I'm super attached to the second save. I play it more than my first save.
Every generation I have to take a 1-2 day break just to edit all of the sims who've aged up (if they have fucked up faces) and give them all better outfits. I'm aware that I could save outfits with MCCC and blacklist certain items, but I'm just used to the system I've got going on. Plus it allows me to 'get to know' all of the sims in the game and give them better names/make sure their genetics look like a realistic blend between parents. I've been playing this save so long that I'm pretty attached to all the families. It's really fun seeing families expand and marry into other families, and see how some family names just disappear while others live on.
What's happening in game right now: I think maybe two weeks ago there was a massive boom in males being born because I only play female sims 99% of the time so I'd only want my favorite families to have girls, and I have a lot of favorite families.
Also, my game's Judith Ward's great granddaughter (who was the product of an affair with the family's butler) married the Grim Reaper and had a child with him.

I used to miss the Sims 2 but over time I realized The Sims 4 isn't a bad game, it's just way too fucking expensive in order to have all of the addons and features. Ridiculously expensive, like it's basically a scam. Everyone should just pirate it. I did buy a decent amount of content legally already. EA has enough of my money. Now I just got a new laptop and I'm having tons of fun with all the expansions, I do think it's nearly a "complete game" with all of them. Then you can just download what mods you want to personalize what you want in the game which basically finishes it off.
Also I have no hope for TS5. They never listened to what their customers want which is insane and retarded of them. Like go ahead, I'll just pirate that one too, idiots. If you look at the polls of what people voted they wanted in TS4 game, it's just sad.

I desperately don’t even want to defend EA for that wedding stories disaster that they are desperately trying to distract people from by releasing another neighborhood stories (story progression) update but it’s at least a very tiny little step towards any kind of depth you can have in your world. They really need to stop being so fucking afraid of adding features and drama. with relationships and romance. I actually want my sims to be really mad if they see a spouse or romantic partner flirting with someone or discover that they’re cheating, maybe even make a dating service website or app like they did in TS3 but make it actually usable. They seriously have a long way to go and the path towards TS5 is getting even closer, they still need to make family gameplay more exciting, add more stuff to story progression, try to refresh and fix bugs that are found in nearly all of their DLCs, do a massive overhaul of their ugly hairs that look like a cut-up basketball placed on their heads and skin colors, add a new life stage between teenager and child, add more swatches to base game, add consequences of class disparity and poor choices like robbers, repo-man if they haven’t, even tax collectors tbh. People need to stop rallying for cars and color swatches and open world and need to start rallying about what mattered the most: the gameplay kek

This thread made me pick up TS4 again after years of not playing. I used to only fuck around in CAS and Build Mode, but now the fully upgraded gameplay is pretty enjoyable, I'm having fun with the fame implement and the actor career.
Also if any nonnas can help me here, I finally decided to try out WW. I followed the instructions and I can see nude Sims in CAS, WW traits in the add/remove traits cheat window, and WW Custom content in build mode, but aside from that none of the WW interactions are showing up in the actual game (including the settings window). Has anyone any idea where I fucked up? The WW troubleshooting guide isn't helpful.

I'm not a coomer but I use WW and Basemental mods with TS4 because without it the game is so fucking dry. WW is known as sex mod but it adds a lot to the game like extra personality traits, an attraction system and sims actually get jealous and react to their partners cheating on them. It's not that I care about sex and drugs, it's that both mods create chaos and randomness that is completely absent from the vanilla game.

I misunderstood this line on WW's site and simply put the two .package files in the Mods folder, but I'm starting to think that's not the problem.

I used G4TW's version of the game (updating the game as DLC and packs came out) but the latest version available on their site is 1.73.57, while WW's latest update only supports 1.80.69 and up.
I was thinking of uninstalling the game, then downloading another up to date repack, then simply move my old Mods and saves folders in the new game. Any nonna more tech savvy than me knows if this could work, or will I just ruin my save files beyond repair?

Using mods that aren't suitable for your game version will cause issues. I agree with >>192578 about the anadius repack, as it's the method I use to pirate the game.

Unpopular opinion I guess? But I'm really suspicious of adult simmers using teen pregnancy mods.

Replying to myself to add that mods that allow teen sims to romance older sims are also creepy as hell even when teen pregnancy is not involved.
I remember Sims 3 Awesomemod, when paired with such a mod, would give young adult, adult and elder sims a pedophile/sex offender hidden trait when they interacted romantically with teen sims. This trait gave sims a non-zero chance of getting caught by the police and going to jail KEK

I think teen pregnancy mods are popular because people like creating soap opera/telenovela tier melodrama in their games. The main teen pregnancy mods for each game only allow teens to woohoo so if some pervert really wanted to watch teen sims have sex they would need to download additional sex mods.

More recently there has been drama on simblr over InTeen and ACR, it's one of the reasons Pleasant Sims was cancelled, yet no one seems to care that NRAAS and MCCC have the exact same functions. Then there was the banning of Colonel Nutty over Devious Desires because it allowed teen sex interactions, rape, bestiality and pedophilia. While necessary and fully deserved, people seem to completely ignore that Wicked Whims also has a teen interaction unlock.

Aw this is cute anon. I always wanted to merge ALL the neighbourhoods together into a massive big city, keeping all the original lots and sims. I'd love for Mortimor to get back with Bella (Strangetown Bella, yeah - Ik she isn't the original one), and I'd love for different sims in different neighbourhoods to get hitched together like Brandi Broke and General Grunt.

Sims 2 hands down. I grew up with it and from a huge case of nostalgia I have researched random facts and lore about it lol. Favourite expansion packs were university - I loved how mean the cow mascots were and the random cheerleaders and nudists entering your dorms. I loved open for business because you can sell toilets or other things to sims kek. Freetime was annoying cuz you'd get harassed by the hobbyists via phone call or personal invitation.
>least favorite Sims game?
Sims 4 is bland and boring and I have always preferred vanilla gameplay over mods. Having to mod tf out of sims 3 and sims 4 made me not play them as much
>what kind of player are you? (legacies, challenges, builder, cas mode, etc. ?)
I am a "breed as many generations as possible" simmer. And I like having my family trees even so I'd make sure the spouses had great grandparents too. Made gameplay very tedious and long. I preferred playing the neighbourhood's premade sims rather than making my own until I had all the neighbourhood premade sims intermarried.
>favorite neighborhood?
Veronaville. I loved the tudor style homes and the modern adaptation of Shakespeare. Reminded me of the 90s Shakespeare movie with Leonardo DiCaprio
>least favorite neighborhood?
They were all good but I'd have to choose Belladonna Valley. The premade sims weren't that interesting. I loved the Freetime neighbourhood because we had a grilled cheese Sim. I made her go out with the secret agent guy next door.
>favorite townie?
Crystal from Strangetown. She was so pretty and I made the scientist brothers fight over her lol.
>least favorite townie?
Ivy Copur - my teenage sims would always invite her over and desire to kiss her
>what is one thing you have done in the game that you are proud of? maybe it's making it to 30 generations, or building a really good lot, finishing up a collection, etc.
Made it to 10 generations… it's pretty short, but they all had an even number of ancestors. And there is no time progression in the sims 2 so it kind of got repetitive playing various families.

Latest milk is in the TS4 community. CC "creators" that charge people through patreon for their "work" were found to be tracking and doxing their supporters by inserting hidden numbers in textures and GUIDs to see who was leaking their content to free download sites. It also turns out that these creators aren't even making their own meshes, they're stealing them from interior design websites and claiming them as their own. The two main people involved in this, Mack on the anti-paywall side and CowBuild being the main instigator of doxing patrons and stealing meshes are cows in their own right so cow vs. cow is cream on top of the existing milk.

I'm sorry but you and cc creators like you are fucking retarded and are responsible for how shitty and toxic the sims community has become. AggressiveKitty has done this texture tracking bullshit before. The fact of the matter is a mesh you can only use in a single player offline game isn't worth even $5 a month, let alone the $20+ some cc creators want. You can buy the rights to a mesh for that and upload it to any game or platform. This is ignoring the fact that 90% of sims CC is stolen from second life or other video games.
The fact of the matter is EA, the bullshit greedy company, had to step in and tell CC creators they couldn't paywall content anymore because you greedy assholes took it too far. Why is it so wrong to charge for mods to skyrim etc but totally a-ok to ask for $5 for a fucking dress mesh on sims?

Paywalling content isn't new. Almost the exact same shit happened during the TS2 era with Pescado vs. The Sims Resource. TSR started putting unique identifiers in content to find out who was leaking content to the booty. TSR customers that were suspected of leaking content were doxed and had their real names released with a list being passed around their featured artists.

TSR was forced to change to a donation model offering faster downloads and ad free access, instead of charging directly for content. Nothing happened to Pescado or PMBD because preventing players from sharing content made for sims games is against EA's EULA. The booty is still alive and is being updated by DHM which Mack is a part of.

There's also kemono.party which archives paid patreon content for free download and the booty which is like an FTP of old and new paid content for sims games.

https://kemono.party/artists
Just type the CC creators name in the search box and their paywalled content is there for free

http://paysites.mustbedestroyed.org/booty/
A lot of the TS4 content is outdated so it's more useful to TS2 and TS3 players looking for old CC.

It's weird that Cowbuild and the others will rail against TS4 Rebels and dox Mack but won't even comment on kemono.party or PMBD.

oh kek so it's not about EA's TOS anymore? first it was that people are perma paywalling, then it was that they steal all their meshes anyway, now we don't care who made what and early access is just as bad. you are all retarded computer illiterate brats.

As a previous cc creator I agree with you, 2 weeks of paywall is fucking nothing man. Of course when you never release things for free and/or just convert meshes and print money from that it's kinda sussy wussy like FelixAndre (I think it was him)

Also kek you would get SO cancelled if you were found out about posting here, be careful of the tumblr schitzos bby. I left because they sucked out any joy out of this game for me.

You’ll only have lost business from people who are constantly checking the rebels site then and it’s not like they’d have payed you willingly in the first place. The early access thing just attracts donators no one’s actually frothing to get your content the moment it comes out -as you said two weeks is nothing. Therefore cry about it

kek I know how piracy works, I know that I'm not losing paying customers. I'm pissed at their hypocrisy and that I have to read their stupid ass high and mighty tumblr posts while knowing they're fucking fake and all their 'rules' and principles are trash and mean nothing to them. I'm comfortable with my subscriber amount and I do good work, I'm not worried.

Maybe if this community wasn't such a fucking dumpster fire all the time, CC creators would feel more good will and would want to uphold the community spirit more. But the fact is that you're all awful to be around, you have no idea what you're talking about, you have no standards for yourselves and all you ever do is complain. I'm not a grifter but I don't feel any sorrow watching you idiots get grifted.

No. 198407

>>198403
I agree that it's hypocrisy. EA has stated that two week early access is fine. Giving people who donate something earlier access to content is just a way of saying thank you to your supporters.

I do wonder though do you take issue with CC creators that permanently paywall content? Most TS4 players are more interested in hoarding the latest popular CC than they are in supporting anyone, so surely having to compete against paywalls impacts your income because these type of people are going to spend their money on something they wouldn't be able to get otherwise, instead of supporting genuine creators like yourself.

I used to be 100% free all the time. I didn't make any money. But if you look at all the top earners on Patreon, they all paywall their CC. I think Harrie is one of the few who doesn't, and her early access period is like a full month. Ethical or not, paywalling pays off majorly. That's why I say this community has no standards for itself - you'll pay for dogshit CC over and over all while complaining and acting like you're better than that. I decided to still release for free because it's what feels right to me and I feel like the good will pays off in the end. But I know I'd make more money eventually if I went full paywall. It's tempting sometimes, I won't lie. I don't feel much fondness for the community and I look at this like a job. I don't feel like my ethics pay off for me and sometimes I feel like I'm being stupid for passing up the money.

Right? Some of the 100% paywalled content is absolute dogshit and people still go after the nicer creators with only a timed pay wall. I only made donation / patreon options close to the end of my "career", since I felt so wrong accepting money for mediocre cc. But goddamn if it doesn't infuriate me I did not have the idea to pump out 100% paywalled content and make a shitload of money. Some of the earnings per month are fucking outrageous. Yes, I'm jelly.

I don't really care about paywalling for 2 weeks since I'm not the type of player that plays all the time, but one thing I will always hate cc creators for is their mental breakdowns and deletions of their cc collections. SO MANY of them do that, I truly do not understand. No, I'm not entitled to your work of course, but why would you delete it, especially knowing other cc creators used your mesh and are linking back to you due to your stupid policy, knowing people downloaded your work? I simply do not understand.
I only had experience with one other modding community which was for an mmo, and nobody ever deleted their shit there. I can still find stuff from 2012, from every single name I remember. It's just so dramatic and autistic it truly makes me seethe.

No. 198574

>>198557
It's a dumb policy because oftentimes creators specify that you MUST download their mesh in order to download recolors, if they delete all their shit in the typical simblr drama queen fashion, you can't download the recolors because they won't show up in game. It's not about being credited.

No. 198577

Exactly, modders in that mmo were all Tumblr girlies too and I didn't see them pulling this over-dramatic shit.

Credit is totally fine, but most of the time they don't let you include the mesh for a recolor. In theory I don't care I'll just download both, in practice it's a different story if the maker of the original mesh decided to delete their cc. It happens a lot if you come across pre-2019 cc.

The fact that it’s almost like paying for finished and already completed art that’s not even a paid commission.

The only people paying for their cc are drooling retards and children in the community who can’t even figure out how to put script mods in their game. This is why they get burnt out, they turn their craft into a greedy money-making opportunity and then rage and get angry at their fans for expecting more from them.

This is the kind of shit which gives me 0 sympathy for cc creators. Most creators are so far up their own fucking asses over this dumb dollhouse game.

Anyway the CC creators popping off in here about their precious meshes are missing off the important part - that sims 4 meshes are 9.99/10 based on already existing meshes within the sims 4. VERY FEW mesh makers for sims start with nothing and build up. So if you wanted to make hair for example, you would edit a sims 4 basegame hair using blender then re-import it. That means these "Creators" aren't actually creating their own fucking meshes at all, they're manipulating ones made by EA. Which is why EA can tell you not to charge for meshes YOU ALREADY STOLE FROM THEM. I can't get over these cc creators crying about their very real job making CC for sims when they're just ripping already legally owned meshes from one of the biggest games from one of the biggest publishers kek. These people don't know how to "mesh", they know how to export and manipulate. They don't know how to get their meshes working in SL or anywhere else where it could be an actual job, and even if they could figure it out, they legally can't because their meshes are technically owned by EA.

Anyway, I didn't even pay the $700 for the games so idk why any retard would expect me to pay a $5 subscription to se their shitty cc kek.

No. 198857

You know what I hate? The very few black Alpha hair creators will charge out the ASS for their broken ass hairs, there's at least two creators who make black hairstyles and the shit looks TRASH in game.
Then there's "Urban" creators who never release their shit. And whats funny to me is, people will literally tell folks to pirate the Sims 4, it's so broken, it's a mess, don't spend money on it, (true but I've gotten my moneys worth, I've been playing since 2017), but then will get mad at you for using sites to download CC thats locked behind pay walls for free.
Sometimes the shit isn't even nice CC, or just recolors of EA shit, or shit they didn't even make themselves, they got from some other site and ported it.
Im sorry but just like EA sucks and doesn't follow the rules, neither do some of these Cc creators and they are just as greedy and entitled with sometimes LESS talent then the sims 4 devs.
The only thing i'd ever think to spend money on is actual mods, like Basemental Drugs and when I did use Wicked Whims, I'd buy that.
I never have brought them, but they both seem to follow the rules and actually create something new and worth it in the game.

This is basically what I've done, and is what's made sims 3 top tier entertaining for me. I'm only on the secondish generation of my little town, given I made the ageing as long as you can get it lol. I've shortened it now. I'm the same anon in the old thread who posted about her medieval town, and I'm happy to report the town has been expanding and looking great!
The King is getting old, I think he'll die soon and the Queen will be forced to reign. I got a Monarchy mod so it isn't just headcannon. Picrel is my not-so-secret garden which you can find through some hills.
Sims 3 can be the best when you mod it enough and also understand those mods well enough to tune the game to you. Having been playing regularly for the past year after not touching it since I was a teen, I can safely say I don't even have an interest in touching sims 4. But maybe that's because the lack of an open world is so unappealing to me, kek.

What do you guys think about the goth update? Personally, Bella is one of my favorite townies to make over.
I usually make her black/biracial and a huge slut ig baddie. Or just a hot mean stay at home mom, who drinks all day and cheats. In my current save she's famous, cheats on her husband, hates her kids and just drinks/smokes cigar.
I love Cassandra because I love making her over, I HATED her base form, so I kinda like the "new look" but it doesn't translate well when she ages up. I just make her super successful and independent or a lesbian. The new hair style is only slighty better. I heard that the new young Boy goth, who name I can't remember, ages up to be really ugly. But he was either very ugly with big ears, or ugly hot when he aged up in my game, depending on what mixture of random cc he ages up to young adult with.
The older male goth is blah. I only stan the female goths.
My other favorite townies are Yuki & Candy, Vanessa (Who I made a blonde pop star), Sophia from winderburg, Penny Pizzaz (I made her into a IG baddie rapper).
Also what do yall do with "Baby Ariel" Sim. I always make her famous but I find it odd making her have her own life/style when she's based on a real person.

also the game is broken and unplayable for multiple people (me). Pronouns literally broke the game for some simmers. It's ridiculous, I never had this happen to me. People are saying it's a graphic card issue or something.

From looking through the thread it seems to be an issue with AMD GPUs that are based on the GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture. So everything from the HD 6000 series up to the last Vega card which was the Radeon VII. This all but confirms that they don't ever bother to test the game on different hardware.

Things to try are to limit the FPS down to 30 and turn off autonomy completely. This fixes a lot of the existing lag issues so maybe it will work for new lag issue.

They knew they fucked up with the wedding stories pack and they had to do a quick pronoun add on to appease the trannies because they're literal cash cows. And the pronoun thing worked.

They've taken it too far to the point that it's obvious pandering. Maxis has always been progressive to a certain extent. Will Wright was open about supporting gay rights and pushing for the inclusion of women in game development.

Would there even be any point in pride content considering homosexuality and bisexuality are are so normalized in the Sims? Maybe for stories using the Sims games as a medium I guess?

Exactly. Something about TS2 men looks so much more masculine. Even with all the CC in the world TS3/TS4 guys look kinda fem or tryhard. Sims 2 guys are so casual and charming.

And I swear to god they even act more masculine. I think TS2 adults acted more mature.

What's the easiest surest way to turn a CAS-made Sim into a service NPC in Sims 2? Something that works even on Sims outside the age and/or gender that a particular type of service NPC is supposed to be, such as an adult repairman or even an adult male nanny (this is the Sims, nothing bad could happen).

No. 213451

>>213446
I dont know of a way to directly convert a cas made sim into an npc. But what you can maybe do is use the npc maker to create a custom npc and then you can edit the sims appearance later with the sims blender. You can try and make an adult male nanny but it might corrupt your hood, so either make a back up or create a custom test hood. There really isnt an easy way to make custom npcs it seems, sorry about that. Making custom townies is a lot easier tho

Have you tried the NPC and townie maker? Load a lot with testing cheats on and shift-click the mail box, choose spawn, then NPC and townie maker. By clicking on the gun with a sim selected you should have the option to make that sim an NPC. IIRC Argon's townie brick and some of the simlogical teleporters also have the option to make NPCs.

Anyways, the retard who came up with the design is also playing victim because of people laughing at how they look. First off all, you are selling a product, not showing a drawing to your parents. Second of all, shes probably trying to manipulate people to stop making fun of the design and buy the pack because they fweel bad uwu.

It's not furry per se, it's Disneyesque like the entire sims 4. I mean those birds in Cottage Living are straight out of Cinderella, and the entire tone of the game is childish and cartoony, with no trace of previous dark humour.
Of course the werewolves were going to be done in the same disgustingly saccharine Disney style. Furries were also "inspired" by those anthropomorphic children's cartoons, so they do have a lot in common.
The entire game (4) is made for retarded children. I don't see how the werewolves are any different from the rest of the game.

the aspirations and personality traits suck, they have no effect on their whims, it's summer and every sim despite their personality or aspiration wants a fucking bee box, they walk from one room to the next and their mood changes, it makes no sense. The old aspirations and personality and interest points system was so much better. Also the attraction system in sims 2, and sexual orientation, some people they will never get along with because of no chemistry and no common interests, but in sims 4 they can just hook up with anyone, no preferences of their own. They can look pretty but they are hollow. It's very aesthetics focused with little depth. When you make a sim in sims 2 you never know what they will be into, and you can look at their interests to determine what sort of hobbies or jobs would suit them, it's fun cause they all feel like different people.

I always felt bad for Lilith cause she was treated like shit, anyways, I turned her life around and basically turned her into a rich rockstar who had 20+ lovers and then ended up marrying Dirk after awhile because I couldn’t keep track of who she was fucking around with.

Sims 4 had a very troubled development. It was originally supposed to be an online game code named Project Olympus but EA changed their mind after what happened with SimCity 2013 was so bad it ended the series. Maxis were given less than a year to retool Project Olympus into a fully single player game. Maxis had to meet the deadline no matter how unfinished the game was so EA could meet their promises to shareholders. It's possible that if TS5 gets a full four year development cycle like TS2 and TS3, it could be decent. I have doubts because the main people responsible for TS2 and TS3 aren't employed at Maxis anymore.

They’re planning on making the sims 5 like how they were going to make “the sims 4” in the very beginning. TS4 is always in production hell because the game was hastily made at the last-minute, full of bugs and yarn code. I think it used to be called Project Olympus which was meant to be a multiplayer online game (which is what they’re trying to make TS5 as) that’s why at launch there were no toddlers, pools, and ugly builds and carelessly planned worlds thrown into the game and wrapped in a $40 bow. So realistically there was never going to be a similar flagship successor to the Sims 3, they wanted to make some city skylines hybrid shit. You can watch vidrel for more info on it, it’s by plumbella. I wouldn’t get your hopes up they released a pack that was completely broken that revealed how inherently fucked the coding and functions of the game is (a pack that relies on sims AI and autonomy even though they can barely take care of their own babies and toddlers on free will mode is alarming) and are now showering the community with packs and crumbs of free content like their performative pronoun update to distract from that major failure on their part. Sure they’ll have more development time but they already announced that they’re working on The Sims 5 while trying to juggle the current game stretching the little resources and teams they have and that they should honestly be fixing and reworking their current game to make it a decent product.

Sims 2 has shit graphics and charmingly ugly sims but has the best personality and fleshed out gameplay and iconic stories out of the franchise. Sims 3 has open world, custom color wheel, cars, and if you buy the World Adventures pack for $20 or less or if you can pirate it you can go on a vacation to China, Egypt, and I think France without it being a rabbit hole, but it’s also full of glitches and it’s pretty slow because it’s an old game but there’s recent fixes to that. Depends on what you really want out of the sims: create-a-sim, gameplay, building, storytelling, challenges. Sims 2 isn’t available for purchase anymore so you can freely pirate it but Sims 3 is available on Steam and Origin.

I’ll definitely take more pictures with my sim families it makes the game feel personal but sometimes I feel compelled to just fuck it all and putting extreme violence in my game again

You don't need a high frame rate to play the sims. High FPS are of benefit when a game requires quick reaction times like arena shooters. There is no point in running the sims at anything above 30 FPS. A 30 FPS frame rate limit will allow you to use higher graphic settings which will actually make a difference to how the game looks and it will keep your laptop alive for longer.

Yes you do or your sims will stay in place/lag when you keep prompting their AI. 30fps is already the bare minimum for the game that’s what I meant, I recently got a new computer with better graphics and memory that’s slightly better than my old one and better graphics/framerate makes it easier to play the game. What a redditor tism thing to do, anon

No. 219162

>>219128
It's the opposite. Lowering the frame rate reduces simulation lag. The TS4 engine does not correlate ticks (time passed in the simulation) to frame rate. Feeding too many frames from the CPU to the GPU causes simulation lag because the number of game ticks isn't synced with frame rate. The game locks up and becomes unresponsive because you are rendering the game when there are no ticks in the engine occurring. Lowering the frame rate also relieves some of the burden on the CPU, which leaves more processing capacity for the game's logic which runs the simulation. The game is incapable of recognizing more than four cores so having anything beyond an Intel i5 or Ryzen 3 does fuck all anyway.

No. 219176

>>219162
I have an i5 so I guess that’s good. I remember when a nonnie told me I could go into the Electronic Arts folder and change the frame rate or something so it would stop my sims from doing that thing where they stand in place like a robot when they’re given a command. How do you do that?

Navigate to My Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4
Inside this folder there will be a file called "Config.log"
It's icon will vary how it looks but I think it will just be a blank icon by default.
Right click on the icon and choose "Open with" then "Notepad"
Inside will be your system specifications, then underneath will be an options header. Look for where it says "FrameRateLimit". There will be a number after that, change it to 30 and then save the file.
The game's frame limit will now be locked to 30 FPS.

Before doing this I recommend making a backup of the Config file. Copypaste it to your desktop or somewhere else in case your cat steps on the keyboard or something. If you screw up just copypaste the old config file back into the The Sims 4 folder.

I've done this and I never have simulation lag in my game.

Honestly with the high school pack coming out and me coming back to sims 3 it just makes me think of how little EA gives us… Just comparing sims 3 and sims 4 seasons expansions makes it obvious that we've been given the bare minimum. I see the new packs coming out and I just start thinking about how we either should've already had this! The amusement park coming with high school should have already been in the fucking game with the seasons expansion. I keep seeing people justifying the hyper-specification of the sims packs and i'm not convinced, the sims team should have been able to make satisfying supernatural gameplay without separating all the occult's. This is a pretty autistic rant but I'm just so disillusioned by the sims 4 right now, especially now that I rediscovered my love for the sims 3, i dont care how 'ugly' it is because the game play is so much more rewarding

The author of wickedwhims proves that ColonolNutty is a pedo and that his mods do contain pedophilia along with bestiality and rape.

>ColonolNutty is an individual who developed modifications for The Sims 4 which allow raping children and animals. Seemingly unaware that his actions have consequences that affected his reputation forever and attempting to play the victim by claiming that his past actions shouldn’t matter anymore or that they aren’t relevant because in his mind he changed.

So I was gonna upload some CC for >>219310, but I just realised I have 16 GBS (!!) of mods. 10 gbs of that is solely CAS content. That made me wonder how much custom content other nonnas have, and what you guys' must-have mods and/or CC are for whatever iteration of the game you play?
I play TS4 and recently installed Lumpinou's woohoo and pregnancy overhaul that allows for surrogates and artificial insemination; it feels sooo much more realistic for my lesbian sims rather than them just woohooing and one getting pregnant that way. It also allows for sims in a relationship to have their own individual desires for having children which feels a lot like something that would have been in TS2!

I honestly think this is going to have consequences for TS5. Sex mods, violence mods, drugs mods and paid CC have existed since TS1. Yet now certain people in the community seem to be determined to push the boundaries as much as they can with pedo mods, copyright theft and doxing rings. EA has been good to the modding community by allowing almost anything to be modded into the game. This is going to change if it keeps generating scandals in the community that EA has to address. All it takes is for a MSM outlet to discover this and run a hit piece for EA to shut it down.

It's also weird to me how so many of these mods are now part of the mainstream modding scene. Back in the TS2 and TS3 days, finding these type of mods took some digging around. Now it seems to be common knowledge.

NTA. If you want a cheap windows computer for TS3, I'd recommend looking at second hand prebuilts based around AMD's FM2+ socket APUs. They're cheap to buy and are good enough for TS3. I've seen them sold for as low as $20. They have good compression/decompression performance for their age and price, this shortens loading times. You can also install a SATA SSD or a NVMe SSD using a PCIe AIC to lower loading times further. These APUs will also run Win7 which has better compatibility with TS2 and TS3.

In a way it's kinda funny, they know their audience a bunch of special gendered teenagers. I enjoy a lot of what I'm seeing and I'm maybe I AM looking too much into it.

Just a random thought, but honestly I don't really see the big deal with paywalling CC. The only thing I don't support is using programs like Adfly, creators who track/doxx people, and creators who make all of their content permanently exclusive and in this situation I just move on and find more free cc I like. Otherwise, I get that it's still their work in a way and I can't fault people for wanting to make a little money off of it when there are people willing to pay them. I just wish everyone on either side of the topic could relax about it.

Anyway, sorry this isn't related to any recent drama or news. I saw that a mod creator got hired by Maxis recently and it got me thinking about it.

No. 223030

Because it's charging money for derivative work and profiting from the free tools that are made by the community. All CC contains the intellectual property that is owned by EA/Maxis and the content is usually made using community maintained software like S4S. Also most of what people are charging for isn't worth paying for because it's all made by amateurs. If any of these creators could use 3D software on a professional level they wouldn't be selling Sims 4 CC, they would be employed in 3D modeling.

The major modders in the community who release large complex mods don't paywall their content. They earn money through early access and donations, yet CC creators are locking recolours and edits of Maxis meshes behind paywalls. It's nothing but greed.

Crying and throwing up and shitting their pants on tumblr dot com because a creator hasn't shared something for free.

On that note, there's a blacklist of creators making the rounds on tumblr right now. I think it's fine and dandy to keep track of creators who are total scammers, thieves or doxx/track their patrons, but things like rude behavior, shoddy quality, silencing critics etc is really subjective and as such dumb reasons to put up there with no proof of the exact instances.

Pescado ran a four year campaign targeting paysites.

I just saw a lilsimsie thumbnail the other day and it reminded me how much she dishonestly clickbaits people with her incorrect thumbnails and titles. No, a cc pack that’s locked behind an early access paywall that no 12 year old who watches your videos is going to be able to pay for with mommy’s credit card is not a “new pack!!!”, makes me roll my eyes sometimes kek. She’s kind of like a fast food sims youtuber, every video of hers is predictable, repetitive, nothing special and nothing bad but it does its job. The only people I can really stomach nowadays are the lets players and builders, I like watching neecxle and her obvious copycats because their videos are entertaining and their sims are always pretty. I love Jess, don’t watch her as often anymore and that fat guy who keeps whining that the ts4 isn’t as good as buggy, slow ts3 (carl’s guide) because they fairly and honestly tell you if the pack is worth it or not.

They're adding sexuality to basegame and you can be attracted to men and/or women or none. Can't wait for the nonbinaries to start reeing. I wonder if they will change it to masculine and feminine frame or something and make trannies ree. I guess they will take damage to their image either way from some group of genderspecials.

Thanks nonny, I really appreciate it! It's a really weird system but easy enough to make slight color changes to wallpapers and such, and I really enjoy the idea of making custom paintings for all the houses I make so they're unique and fit the style of the sims living there.

Ikr even though sims 4 is being developed and produced by greedy demons from the pits of video game hell, it’s still a playable game. Honestly if they fixed a whole lot of the bugs, added way more free content/depth/challenge to the game, and lowered the price of the packs I rather play sims 4 than paralives. It feels like an actual sandbox game where you can have your sim wearing a custom content squidward costume while twerking and making minecraft-tier mansions and houses. Doubt you will even be able do that shit with paralives, seems like it’s overhyped by the nostalgiafags who think people only enjoy the sims franchise solely for gameplay and not just to fuck around, build or create. The mod/cc community for the sims 4 and sims 3 is honestly the best throughout the entire game and the modding community is what makes or breaks the game for me personally. Consolefags, millennials, and very dumb technologically illiterate players who can’t find their own mods folder and are always the groups these games are marketing towards are unironically a small part as to why sims 4 sucks ass apart from the fact that the game wasn’t even going to exist in the first place kek. If the game devs had more time, healthy work/life balance and creative freedom they can deliver a product wayyy better than paralives.

I don't play anymore but seeing the discussion about sexuality in game reminds me of when TS2 was still coming out and forums like boolprop were the like the LGB(T) sims hub, does anyone else remember? iirc you weren't allowed to discuss anything sexuality related on the official site then, I could be wrong though.

Sims games have always allowed same-sex relationships from the very first game (programming-wise it's easier to just allow them instead of adding extra checks so the Sims have to be a male and a female) and didn't make such a huge deal out of it until very recently.

they definitely know this isn’t racism, their entire fantasy worlds are crashing down because in a few months if EA ever gets their sweaty asses up and actually start enforcing their own policies these people will have to start getting real jobs and quit their “creative” avenues such as ebegging online because they took a month creating something using EA/3D assets that technically are not theirs. I love a lot of maxis match creators who have turned their stuff “early access” but the extreme wait times just in order to download their content for free is actually getting even more absurd and predatory, almost like they make you wait weeks just for a measly cc pack of great custom clothing even though it’s $2-3 dollars to access. i just forget that it’s going to release on that date and most of the time i don’t even bother, a lot of these people already feel disconnected or discontent with the community as a whole and i can already feel a lot of them are in extreme burnout periods, even the sims youtubers. unrelated sperging but a lot of the clothes, hair, shoes themselves don’t really even function as something that seems reasonable to be in the sims, a lot of them cater to the dressup heauxs who want to simulate their fashionista lifestyle in a life simulators game

Groups like DHM, PMBD and TS4 Rebels started uploading her content for free download. To stop this she and other paywall creators started hiding unique identifiers in their content to find who was leaking it. Anyone suspected was put on a list and doxed through their patreon info.

I just found out the Ash character that comes with the new pack is a male. He can pee standing up and he's infertile. I went on CAS to change him into a female because he'd look cuter as a woman, but when I tried to change his blocky body type into a female one, I realized he has custom body types, all of which look male.

EA and the modders have a symbitotic relationship. Without mods, the Sims 4 is bland and gets boring quickly. I know for any long term gameplay I need to add some mods in, and I'm far from alone in that. EA relies on mods to make the game playable, so that players keep playing and buying new packs. Meanwhile, the modders are allowed to make money off of their work. Without modders EA wouldn't make as much money

Ever since the HSY update my game has been playing like dog shit, long loading times, simulation lag and frame rate drops. Now I've found out why. I prefer to limit the game to 30 fps because it prevents simulation lag and gives a smoother game play experience. After the update the game went back to running at 200 fps (you can show the frame rate in game by pressing control+shift+c and then typing "fps on"). I tried editing the config.log file to limit the frame rate to 30 and it would reset back to 200 fps every time I started the game. The update broke this method of limiting the frame rate, now you either need to use an external program such as your GPU driver or edit the Options.ini file.

The process for editing the Options.ini file is the same as for the config.log file. Find the Options.ini file in Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4. Open it with notepad, control+f to find "frameratelimit" and change the number to 30.

thanks nonna for this advice. i know it’s not surprising and probably par for the course by now but it’s dumb something else just breaks with every update.

i went to play the sims after not playing for a while, pirated so the version i’m on was the update for when hsy came out, not the most recent. all my mods were updated for the version i’m on and for some reason now i can’t click on sims unless i turn off mods when it worked the last time i played. i don’t know if i can be bothered anymore, i heard apparently the new update just broke more things and doesn’t even fix much else other than add new scenarios. people are flooding the sims 4 instagram page begging them to fix shit while whoever runs it only likes and interacts with the positive comments.

Are you using a mod that alters the UI like Cheats Extension UI, More CAS Columns or Better Build Buy? I had a similar issue earlier in the year and it's because I forgot to download a new version of the Cheats UI Extension after updating the game. The other thing to try is playing with the UI scaling under game options. I use dual monitors and sometimes the game doesn't know which monitor to display on and it resets my UI scaling settings which can cause UI issues like not being able to click on certain UI elements.

Yeah, that comment is annoying as fuck, but tbf EA is in the wrong here. Nobody wants to play a Sims game where you cannot control and modify every aspect of your sims. I don't get why it's not even an option that you can toggle on and off like free will, that would be ideal.
Also, not allowing players to manage the updates they've installed and play the game as they please is a surefire way to make your customers angry and lose profits.
The woketards that now work on The Sims are really bad at capitalism. Another example is how they refused to sell the wedding expansion pack in Russia allegedly because its anti-gay propaganda laws would've forced them to remove the gay content (as explained by many Russian fans, those laws don't apply to 18+ games, which The Sims 4 is in Russia, so the pack would've been legal there) but they backpedaled once Russian players complained that it was discrimination against the Russian LGBT community kek

sorry for late response, i did remove twisted mexi’s better build buy since i was barely using it and thought it could be the cause. i did also use ui cheats though. what’s getting me is i didn’t update the game nor the mods since one or two patches ago which may not be a good idea but didn’t feel like dealing with more possible broken features and updating the hundreds of mods i have installed for updating to the newest patch. the last time i did update i updated my mods as well for that patch but haven’t updated either since. i use a repack that has a separate online and offline version. i usually play the offline version but used the online one to download some stuff from the gallery for the first time, maybe that messed it all up somehow. i lastly turned off mods and then i could click on sims again but i’ve basically given up on playing it for the meantime because while i’m sure i messed up somewhere i just don’t think i can be bothered anymore.

They never removed it, it’s a personality trait called proper.

I’ve never seen Korea as a religious country anyway, why the fuck does it matter. This might be insensitive but nearly everyone who was able to understand and experience it are dead. It was just going to be a ringing of the bell and bowing in front of it or some shit.

The Russian law they tried to protest isn't an anti-LGBT law, being gay is not illegal in Russia, there's even world renowned gay bars in Moscow and Saint Petersburg. The law is an anti-grooming law that stops companies from marketing anything sexual towards minors and this includes depictions of both straight and gay sexuality. Nothing was stopping them from selling the wedding pack in Russia, it would need to be rated 18+ like the rest of the game already is.

i’m just asking because i’m unsure but is there any viable way a sims multiplayer would really work in a way that would benefit players? even if players manage to get their sims together what happens when someone tries to interact with another person’s sim and the other person doesn’t want to engage that way and the other keeps pushing it, it just seems that’ll get annoying, would they implement a block option, that could be interesting. what if someone decides to spam their action queue on a specific item and not let anyone else use it? will players get together on a player’s lot and can mess with someone’s house or would ea/maxis make a whole world specifically for multiplayer that can’t be edited (also remember how horrid some of their builds can be) is it just going to be like simport from the sims 3? never used it though to be honest it seemed kind of lame. i don’t totally know how gta rp works, but i’m assuming it doesn’t work in a way where the only way you engage with other people involves clicking and selecting an option from a menu though

i’d be interested to see how a sims multiplayer would go down though i don’t have much interest in trying it myself. i feel like functionality could be limited in some aspects

There's already been an online sims game. The Sims Online was released between the first game and TS2. It was an online version of TS1. It failed to make back the money EA invested in it and was shut down. There's a fan made recreation of it called FreeSO that's currently online. I've never played it so I'm not sure how it worked.

yes, but that was a spin-off side game. I'm pretty sure the average Sims player would not want a main entry in which she or he can only play one sim because that's just not what Sims is about.

theyre making the base game f2p b/c there wont be a sims 5. they're trying to get as many people on this sims 4 as possible so they can continue to milk the franchise w/o having to innovate.

honestly my tinfoil is they could have made base game free because if there’s anyone who somehow hasn’t played yet and they finally check it out because it costs nothing, they’ll find that it’s absolutely boring as shit without any add ons, either subtly leading them to check out some packs and/or resort to mods and cc. of course i could be wrong but i don’t feel like ea’s ever made a move without some sort of motive. the game can already be pirated anyway but kids are still out there talking about buying packs.

No. 241389

>>241181
yeah that’s what i was thinking. the way sims is usually played doesn’t exactly suit multiplayer, many players seem to like being in charge of whole families and worlds and play out scenarios in the way they want them to happen (almost). so i don’t know if a main game multiplayer could happen

No. 245766

then the game isn't exactly free considering they are making you install apps and have accounts on different sites.
Its not worth it since you're only getting the boring base game meanwhile ONE expansion pack for this game costs $40 (it literally costs almost $700 to buy all of the expansion pack).

Ill check if they have it free on steam for pc, they probably won't have it, so whatever.

No. 245768

they will have it free on both origin and steam after october 18th, but you'll still need origin, both account and app to use it even on steam, so might as well just use origin and ditch steam when it comes to sims 4, it's literally the same thing

EA really wanted to market the game to teenagers and used music to do it. They replaced Jerry Martin with Mark Mothersbaugh, they paid for popular electronic music artists like Lemon Jelly and Timo Maas to remix tracks and they paid for popular bands and singers to make simlish versions of pop songs. A lot of the European versions have differences in the radio stations because EA included certain tracks by bands and artists in the countries where they were popular.

>>Basemental Drugs- https://basementalcc.com/adult_mods/basemental-drugs/

If you want to make your sim smoke crack, cigerettes, weed, cocaine, pop pills or sell them/grow them. Base game compatible and a great mod. Also add alcohol to the game.

>nobody actually plays it

copium, millions of people play it and it’s predecessors daily, the problem is that most of the important functions of a sandbox game like dining, leisure/fun, and seasons/weather and travel is locked behind pricey micro transactions and a million of them you have to buy that eventually slows your game down into a buggy, unplayable mess. the game would be perfectly playable if the backend of the entire franchise did not put impossible time/financial constraints on their employees and workers and impossible superhuman deadlines and last minute decisions and pure greediness. the only thing that people should be mad about is that the entire gaming industry is following this ugly new trendy profitable model of gaming where casual/moderately challenging games like fortnite that you can play on your PCs/gaming consoles have to look like a mobile game and function exactly like that, because they must appeal to the lowest common denominator who can’t even figure out how to download a mod and put in their game folder. the sims is no longer complex or fleshed out because of that, it was going to be exactly like their sims mobile game before they scrambled before the deadline and they were missing important elements like toddlers, pools and base game neighborhoods that looked finished. it’s going to be the end of an era where women, their largest demographic, can have a game where they can creatively build and create things without it being in the mist of violence/sex/misogyny rated M fodder like other sandbox games GTA. noticed how animal crossing was shat on because a specific demographic of women likes to play it because it wasn’t “real mature” like real manly games? kek, yeah, you think sims is exempt from that? they also certainly don’t care for who actually plays the game which are young children, teens, and women. the sims 4 would have been a decent game if it was given proper time to flourish and they didn’t l, people know there are good even great parts of the game that make them come back, it’s also a negative mix of corporate fuckery that ruins it

I agree that it can become irritating. I pirated TS4 over a year ago out of curiosity and it's ok. I haven't encountered any game breaking bug that wasn't caused by mods or CC and there is fun to had in the game. It's certainly lacking compared to TS2 and TS3. TS2 has the depth of simulation, the superior AI and there are so many smalls details included that 18 years after first playing it the game still surprises me with things I haven't seen before. TS3 is a huge game with almost endless combinations of things to do and sims to create. TS4 isn't bad, it just isn't as good as TS2 or TS3 and no matter how much content Maxis crams into it, TS4 never will be because the main issue with TS4 is it's core gameplay, shallow simulation and limited game engine.

I love the build mechanics Sims 4 has, and the multitasking etc. I love TS2 just because of the nostalgia factor, but it's nerve wracking to play it in fear of corruption borking your save or you whole game. TS3 is unplayable with the lag. TS4 run very (for me at least), but something about it feels a bit shallow. Maybe it's partly my age too. Maybe I would enjoy it as much as I did TS2 if I was 12 again? I don't know.

Im autistic, I like to spend at least a hour downloading mods before I play. In doing that, I often run into paywalled cc, so I keep a fucking list if it's over a month old.
Already have to deal with EA trying to sell shit, can't even download fucking recolored dresses without some fucker trying to charge you $10 a month.
I'd rather give my money to an a Modder, like the basemental Drugs guy or someone who creates mods AND gives free updates. At least I'm paying for something thats game play.
Anyway heres the link- https://ts4rebels.cc/ for anyone interested.

>>248726
No? I've certainly had issues with all my long running saves in TS2 which has discouraged me from playing, as you feel like all your work has gone to nothing as it eventually crashes and burns

To both anons, do not take my criticism of TS2 as some personal attack kek. I love the game, people just seem to have major nostalgia goggles on, when all the Sims games have issues. It's a personal preference which one you like the best, idk why people get so heated about it.

I was thinking that something like a pastebin document with clickable links to different mods under descriptive headers along with advice about mod settings and finding free CC from recommended creators.

For example TS2 players trying TS4 for the first time are probably going to want a mod that adds an attraction system, where as TS3 players might be more interested in recommended settings for MCCC story progression.

>Dina Caliente is not an "evil golddigging schemer", she really is dumb as a rock, Nina isn't evil either, she just isn't nice and doesn't give any fucks
>Mary-Sue Pleasant is a narc mom with a neglectful disengaged husband and father to the twins, Angela is the golden child, Lilith is the scapegoat, neither twin is "good" or "bad"
>Don Lothario definitely groomed Cassandra Goth as a "rebound"
>Brandi Broke is supposed to be a teen mom, no elixir of life involved, likely groomed too
>Kaylynn Langerak is a huge pick-me and most likely a tradthot wannabe
>Circe Beaker has a thing for grumpy blond science boys, married Loki because at least he isn't an incel like Vidcund Curious, Circe and Loki are actually a very loving couple in the unholy matrimony way
>Vidcund is such an incel and so not over Circe he's actually a little gay for Loki "to understand what she sees in him"
>both Circe and Loki sometimes feel bad for Nervous Subject every once in a while for like… 3 seconds or so
>Nervous has serious brain damage from all the experiments but deep down there really is a lovely man underneath the surface
>Circe and Loki probably both get off to torturing Nervous outside those occasional 3 seconds, it's great foreplay for them
>General Buzz Grunt is alienphobic because he's afraid of anorectal violence and mpreg, doesn't really mind other occults actually
>Tank can be quite nice when not under Buzz' thumb, definitely another narc parent case going on in there, Lyla got away, Tank remained the golden child, Ripp the scapegoat and Buck the invisible one
>the entire Curious bunch actually really fetishize aliens to an obscene extent, PT#9 also fetishizes Sims so it just works
>aliens in general are culturally obsessed with Bella Goth the same way bitchy gays are obsessed with Britney Spears
>Olive Specter is the absolute gigastacy everyone loves to hate and hates to love, she didn't kill ALL of the people in her graveyard, many of them were unfortunate accidents as an excuse for the Grim Reaper to get close to her because she's that much of a gigastacy
>she did kill some of them though because she still really is not nice at all but most of the time she was probably just like "i wish this sim would just FUCKING DIE" and the Reaper was happy to oblige
>Albany and Cornwall Capp definitely both groomed their way into the Capp family
>Albany is a trad scrote who wanted a rich bangmaid baby factory to leech off
>Cornwall was probably some softboi wannabe loser idk (he probably seduced Regan with crappy poetry or some other fake deep shit) but Regan and him still have better chance of working it out because they always have at least 2 bolts chemistry even with literally incompatible turn-ons/offs and so they keep boinking like bunnies and they also both like shmoney

The longest amount of generations I went through was actually 10, and I only did it once. Since then I attempted to start a generation challenge multiple times but I didn't go further than 3 generations because for some reason my sims started getting insanely stupid the more I had of them in the household a few patches back.

He felt guilty so he tried to be there for cassandra and then took it too far and got into a relationship with her. Dina and morty supported each other after the loss of their partners and fell in love, then bella decides to come back and pretend she has memory loss and has no idea where she was, she only came back cause she wouldn't be getting money when he dies since it would go to the new wife so she wants morty back. Sometimes i have Bella be a witch and kill dina and then come back soon after. Other times morty is living with both of them and then he cheats on dina with bella.

If you want to update the game there's two main options. Use the anadius updater or get the base game for free and use the DLC Unlocker.

Both can be found here

https://anadius.hermietkreeft.site/dlc-unlockers

If you're unsure on what to do there's guides here

i do have the updater (i have kaos krew repack which i believe uses anadius? don’t know if i’m using the right wording my friend has the install files on a portable drive for himself and i decided to use it after) the repack also comes with a dlc toggler to enable/disable packs and two separate shortcuts to play online or offline. i’m just not sure if the update is worth it for me or what exactly will change. when i first installed i’d logged into ea with a burner account via browser, got the sims 4 demo, iirc i didn’t even have to install origin. had to put in a remid cookie before i could start the game. online and offline did work, could use the gallery with the account, also turned off share usage data just in case etc, but i’m not on the latest patch so i’ve stayed offline.

i’m guessing that with the demo no longer available that might have changed. i’m definitely able to update with the updater but i was wondering if that means i have to go through a whole process again since the demo is gone, i hear ea desktop is needed now and that cracked games can no longer access the gallery (i could be wrong). sorry if this sounds dumb. that being said, i’ll check the link if i can get more clarification. thanks for the help nonna.
