Old thread has been dead for more than a year now so I'm starting a new one.

Discuss everything Sims related here, mods, cc , what you like and dislike.

Also feel free to post your own sims.

I've been playing Sims 4 and what I miss the most is the memory system of Sims 2. For example, in TS2, sims used to have good and bad memories - for example first kiss, starting a business, relative dying etc. They would remember those memories - a sims that has been cheated would randomly start crying etc. I wish that kind of system was implemented in Sims 4.

No. 8881

I feel like the Sims 2 had everything I ever wanted in a Sims game and it's really disappointing a lot of those features disappeared over the course of 3 and 4. Imagine a remaster of it, maybe with the neighborhood/real time system of 3…that'd be amazing.

Even though 4 has more content how it's still honestly very disappointing. It's missing SO MUCH from 2 and 3 that it might as well be a shitty remaster of 1.

The sims 3 were peak sims to me, all the sims 4 has ever done is disappoint me. I'll probably buy them again one day.

i actually like ts4 the most out of the sims games probably. ts3 was nice too, ts2 was cool but our game was full of bugs which probably gave me bad memories of it. i just really like the visuals in ts4, compared to ts3 its so much less uncanny

No. 8884

the new trailer for sims 4 seasons reminds me of 2 in a way? it feels a bit more goofy and focused on relationships between sims and those are the parts i love about 2 that i think later games don't do so well. 4s grown on me a lot but mostly for building houses and sims with custom content rather than playing with them, i think it gets boring faster than 2 and 3

Just finished my finals and started playing Sims 4 again yesterday because I always have the urge to when I'm studying!

My goal is to usually make a "perfect" town with "idealistic" families. Does anyone have any tips for making your own buildings? I usually look up floor plans for famous buildings for the basic shape and that helps a lot but I still suck at it and end up downloading most of my buildings.

Also the way I play gets really boring, anyone have ideas on how to spice it up? I tried owning a business but I had to cheat in order to buy it, which I don't like doing. Also it's annoying you can't have multiple active households so I can check up on all my individual families without losing progress.

How do you guys play?

I started playing the sims 4 again after finding a crack of all of it up to pets. Sadly it doesn't include game packs and stuff packs, if someone knows a crack that dos I'd be thankful!

I started making just me and my bf, now we have 5 teenage children. I feel like I'm playing a bit too perfect, with both parent's careers maxed and all the kids having straight A's. The only different thing is that I changed my bf's sim's aspiration to wanting lots of romance partners and that has been fun, having to make sure no one find out, having bastards, all that jazz. I'm planning on making one of the teens a vampire so that should be fun too, I've never tried it before.
I like building too but I'm not very good at it. I want my family to live in a beautiful castle but it's not exactly how I want it yet.

My main thing was the sims 2
I have all my stuff on my old laptop and keep telling myself I'm going back to it but kinda want to install it on new laptop

The Sims 2 was my favorite thing growing up. It's sad that instead of building up on it, 3 and 4 just seem to have scrapped a bunch of features and made only tangentially related games.
At least The Sims 4 characters seem to look the best (haven't played it yet), but The Sims 2 was most fun. Meanwhile, The Sims 3 is just trash-tier both visually and gameplay-wise.

I loved sims 2. It was for me hands down, the best version. You had a lot in your base game and the DLC had good content for the price.
Also you had a ton on really cool fanmade stuff, even i made some myself (which was really easy) and the end i had so much stuff for this game that the loading took age.
Sims 4 is really not good, you need a shit-ton of money to buy even the basics stuff, what every sims game had without packs. I can't get over the fact that you have to buy a pack so you can have 2 hot tub/ jacuzzi. In the other games you always had it in the basic game.
Or to get some hair that doesn't look terrible.
For the animal pack you only get dogs and cats where in the other games you got much more.
It is only money making…

It is so buggy, maybe i am just nip-picking, but my sims often just stand there and do absolutly nothing even if i told them what to do. Or they just stop something even if there is nothing in the quere of the do list.
Sometimes some think like 'go to bed' is stuck in the to do quere, i can't click it away and they stop doing thinks in the middle of doing it because of the 'go to bed' think.

Why do i need origins for playing this game? I don't want that.

No. 8907

I always have shitty, awful Sims in bad circumstances and trying to rise to the top from absolute rock bottom.

My favorite challenge was the runaway teen challenge in Sims 3 but I took it a bit further. I would get my teen Sim pregnant (through mods) then kill off the baby dad. Then I would move her to an absolutely barren lot and set her savings to 0. With the klepto trait I would go to neighbours houses and steal stuff to either sell or use. Otherwise I would dumpster dive and get a crappy part time job. Neither of which you can do when your sim goes into 2nd trimester which makes things tougher. Couple that with getting pregnant continuously, having to pay baby sitters, etc…it's a REALLY fucked up but fun challenge. I actually had a hugely successful legacy this way where the house grew with the family.

Unfortunately it's not really feasible with 4.

No. 8908


Hmmm let see:
-Better graphics
-Better house building tools (though no create-a-style sadly)
-Will work smoothly even on potato-est of the computers due to laptop mode
-Sims are more intelligent when it comes to routing, multiple sims are able to participate in a conversation
-CAS is better than Sims 3 in my opinion but it lacks color wheel

I actively play Sims 4 , bought base game but have pirated every single expansion, stuff pack and update and it still kinda feels like a barren game.
I think I'm gonna start a legacy in Sims 2 so I can compare what exactly am I missing from 4.

>had some cool objects
>beautiful soundtrack

sims 2
>sims have a cartoony look
>no real variation with body shapes
>face editing is pretty advanced tho
>you also get the ''body shop'' program to make your own clothes and genetics
>great expansion packs, most of them are worth the money
>you get 3 neighborhoods in the base game with pre-made neighbors that have backstories and stuff
>you can make your own neighborhood from scratch which is pretty awesome
>graphics are rather poor and sometimes glitchy (the base game is quite old to be fair)
>lots of cheats which make the game really fun
>you can create your own community lots such as restaurants and pools!

sims 3
>improved graphics
>the sims themselves look less cartoony and a bit more realistic
>base game hair, skin and clothes are ugly as sin
>new create a style tool which allows you to give customize anything (objects, hair, clothes etc) with new colors and patterns
>downloadable content is great though
>really great expansion packs too
>you only get one neighborhood (iirc) with the base game, which sucks
>amazing open world concept; your sim can explore the whole town without loading screens, you can go anywhere you want
>the sims have more personality than before, you can give them zodiac signs, choose favorite color and meal and change their voice
>your adult sim can has 5 personality traits and a life-time goal (becoming really rich, certain careers, family etc)
>loading screens last f o r e v e r
>the game size is massive due to the open world concept and may crash often
>some expansion packs lag awfully (island paradise for example)
>''rabbit holes'' are lots in the towns your sims go to for work or school, like the police station or the restaurant, for example. you can actually see the building/destination but can't go inside.

sims 4
>going back to the sims 2 cartoon look of the characters
>create a sim mode is fantastic, you can drag on the face and body to change (like 3d modelling)
>you can customize body shapes however you want by dragging
>your sims are not restricted to gender, males can wear female clothing for example
>you can choose a (pretty vague) aspiration and three lackluster personality traits
>personality traits are extremely superficial and predictable (romantic, evil, outgoing…), not nearly as good as the sims 3; there are also very few options
>you can change voices and the way they walk
>zodiac signs were removed for some reason
>the create a style tool from the sims 3 was also removed, so you're stuck with the base game colors
>build mode is impressive, you have a lot of freedom
>amazing downloadable content
>new ''emotions'' interface, your sim can feel around 14 different emotions that affect their behavior (sad, happy, flirty, angry etc)
>new deaths although it is very hard to kill your sims
>you get three neighborhoods with the base game; all sims from any neighborhood can visit each other which is really cool
>no open world concept. you can not go anywhere you want anymore. lots of loading screens, too
>the towns look ridiculously cartoony and the designs are super lazy
>you get almost no lots at all…seriously, you get like 3-4 empty lots in every town and you can not add new ones like you could in ts2/3
>sims 3 had schools and workplaces in the town, sims 4 does not
>boring, cookie-cutter careers, military and politics were removed.
>new skills (video gaming, gourmet cooking, mischief etc)
>cheating isn't as easy
>your pregnant sims constantly have bladder failure for some reason
>multitasking was added, your sims can now do up to 3 things at once (eating while talking or watching TV)
>the base game alone can cost you up to 40 USD! Expansion packs are the same price. Do not buy it full price. I got it on sale for half of the price.
>ts4 is generally a rip off, you get very litte in the base game and even less in expansions for a ridiculous price

So I just played TS2 out for nostalgia and holy shit, Sims AI seems more realistic and advanced compared to the one in TS4.

I was fooling around with some random family, made husband cheat on wife with a maid.
Wife wasn't around but the thing is that their child was. Child saw dad woohoo with the maid and started crying WHICH made wife hear it and come running to see what's happening and ofc witnessed the cheating, relationship meter dropped down etc.
Later, both wife and child had a bad memory from cheating and would cry spontaneously remembering it etc. Also wife autonomously broke up with husband, who automatically moved away from house.

This feels so much more real than sims in TS4. They hardly react when their spouse or lover is cheating. Children don't recognize it either. I had one sim have children from multiple other sims and her husband didn't even care lol.

How can it be that a game made in 2004 has a much better AI than a sequel made literally 10 years later?

I played it but I don't remember much. Though what I do remember how even though it was a Sims 3 spin-off, it had a superior CAS and your sims didn't look pudding-faced.

Major problem I had with sims 3 was how CAS was shit and every sims you made looked doughy and weird. I had to download a shitton of mods, sliders and skins to make them looks decent.
Even then, all the other townies looked like shit so I had to spend a lot of time making human looking sims in CAS and getting rid of premade pudding mess.

Sims 3 is a clunky, ugly mess with superficial customization. I’ll take body morphing over color wheel any day. Being able to move rooms around over hot tubs. Quick loading screens little and often over a giant game that takes forever to load and constantly lags.

Sims 3 was a bloated unoptimized mess but still had way better features like the real time neighbourhood. The xpacs didn't feel like needless filler (the pets one for instance was so robust - having horses was amazing) and there was just so much to do and so many ways to play. Sims 4 looks better and plays more efficiently but it feels like the base game and every successive xpac are unfinished. Hell, the base game WAS unfinished to the point where they had to add pools and toddlers later.

No. 8937

Think you need to do "testingcheats on"


You can modify Sims' relationships by using the somewhat long modifyrelationship yoursimfirst yoursimlast targetsimfirst targetsimlast x relationshiptype.
Relationshiptype is either LTR_Friendship_main or LTR_Romance_Main.
X is the percentage of the bar, either full, half, or half into the red (negative numbers). While there are many different relationship names, these are simply combinations of varying amounts of friendship/romance (either positive or negative).

For example:

modifyrelationship Bella Goth Mortimer Goth 100 LTR_Friendship_main - Bella and Mortimer are now best friends

modifyrelationship Bella Goth Mortimer Goth 100 LTR_Romance_main - They're now soulmates if they have a high friendship level as well

above is from http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/cheats.php

The cheats for the relationships are crap in sims 4, it's easier to install MC command centre and reduce the relationship decay setting, or you can add traits to your sim that reduce their relationship decay or build relationships faster.

Everyone remembers a Beloved Sim! Their relationships never fade. enter "traits.equip_trait Legendary"

Relationships decay more slowly.
enter "traits.equip_trait Memorable"

Domestic Sims will see their familial relationships grow stronger faster. enter "traits.equip_trait FamilySim"

Gregarious Sims build friendly relationships faster.
enter "traits.equip_trait Gregarious

Dude I know right. I was so disappointed by this when I just started playing ts4. I love creating family drama in my games, but in ts4 the sims don't seem to care. There's something weird and insincere about how families work in that game, but it's been a while so I can't quite place why atm.

No. 8939

I think my favorite part of TS2 was the stories for pre-existing families, and how they are all interconnected. It actually made playing the pre-made families worth it.

One of the things that bothers me the most is that sims doesn’t have memories in the sims 4, maybe a bit silly but in sims 2 I felt I could get more “immersed” with the stories I was creating. Like if my sim cheats on their partner in S4 they barely give a shit, they’re just sad for a day or two. Tho I prefer how advanced they are with customization to really flesh out personalities, but they remain superficial shells when you really break it down.

I've been playing Sims 4 on and off for 2 years and have been pretty disappointed with it overall. I think the game looks great, but the gameplay is so shallow that you basically have to rely on your imagination completely to get anything out of it.

Even with some of the latest expansions like City Living, Jungle Adventure, and Pets, which certainly added stuff to do, the Sims themselves are so bland that the game still feels boring. Everyone is hyped for Seasons, but it's just going to be the same thing. What good does it do to have all this new shit when the Sims all act the same, are never affected by anything long term, etc?

I've had to use mods just to make things interesting, but that can be a pain in the ass when they conflict, so sometimes it's not even worth the effort.

Sims 2 is still the best game. Theres no beating it once you have 10 gb of custom content and a game that takes 40 minutes to load. I'm not even being sarcastic, the game is thoroughly modded to hell and back and making a pretty neighborhood with a bunch of default replacements and lighting, grass and water mods, creative elaborate neighborhood deco, etc is the most fun thing ever. So is building houses using multi-part decorations, a mountain of OMSPs, and building cheats that allow you do shit as crazy as making a flat beach lot (if you got bon voyage when it came out you probably know how finicky the game is with beach lots).

Fuck, there was even one person over at Tumblr making a new custom UI. It's a completely different game at this point, and the community is still alive.

I don't understand how EA can look at that and then just keep making games even worse than the last. Hell, even adding memories to 4 would make it 20 times more playable.

From what I've read it just depends on the support person you get. Some people say they won't let you get it at all, while others say they will give it to you with or without proof that you owned the game.

I would just try it. I first tried to get it a few years ago but chickened out when they asked if I had proof. The second time I tried it they just gave it to me without any proof.

I rememeber as a kid my sisters and I all had to take hour turns on the sims and I'd stay and watch each of them play until it was my turn (i had 2 sisters who played). Since i was so young when it came out my houses were just squares with no roofs and holes in walls instead of doors.
I glitched the game so many times for them by deleting the garbage or mailbox or putting carpet on the sidewalk to make it look funky.

No. 9002

I still think that 2, fully modded and with all xpacs is the best of the lot. A decade of my life spent with that shit, lol. The community is so crabby though and has always been kind of snobbish and weird. I was always super supportive of my favorite creators but was otherwise a pretty quiet person on forums and whatnot because of it.

I suck at art in every way possible, but I wanted a specific custom sim made for 2 and was even willing to pay well for one, back when the game was maybe a year or two old. I always took pains to be super polite about it, but I was told I was being ‘rude’ and that I should ‘teach myself’ and it was just like fuck me, I’ve been trying to teach myself and they look like shit! Even doing the photo wrap on mesh technique, it always looked like a hot mess. It was so weird because if I had the ability I’d be cranking out custom sims for people left and right, especially if I were being compensated for my time. I remember getting absolutely dragged on MTS for asking and I just felt so bad.

tbh I’d still pay someone to do it, like seriously just name your price haha but I’ve basically given up. I wonder if it was because at the time, the creators were all older people and maybe didn’t get it? It seems comparable to me to someone commissioning an artist on tumblr or whatever but I guess not. I know this sounds kind of bitchy now but I swear to god I was always super nice when asking about this, I never sent out blanket messages to every creator in the book or anything like that, it’s just something that still makes me crabby lol.

I only have TS4 base game and I modded the hell out of it, yet the sims that come with Willow Creek and Oasis Springs are so fucking boring.

Like how did TS4 manage to put Don Lothario in a house with Dina AND Nina Caliente and not give some sort of semi-intriguing story line? Not to mention the Goths and the Landgraabs who basically are devoid of personality which is a shit stain on their story lines just from TS2.

Are there any suggestions that you all have to make the town more fun? Even downloading traits and mods doesn't help the fact that the sims have no personalities of their own. Esp with Wicked Whims, which just leads to sims fucking random people who happen to be on a lot. WW has resulted in a bunch of children being born outside of a marriage, and in regards to sims having kids outside of their marriage, the spouse never is upset/mad about it when I go to check.

OH and another thing, I'm on gen 2 of a legacy now and there are barely any children/teens in my town now. I put the teen lot trait to try and find kids to hang out with, and all I see are goddamn elders walking by. I get that the population has a limit but there has to be a way to fix this. Has anyone else noticed this?

There is a sim save floating around by a YTer called simsiesave. She overhauled every single neighborhood from the sims to the houses. No CC, just much more functional and nicely decorated houses and families with premade backstories that you can play with. I highly recommend it. I use that as a base for any new sims save I'm starting.

Also if you haven't, you should definitely get MC Command Center (mod). Gives you a lot of randomizing tools which can help craft stories. You can fully tweak the settings which include things like random townie marriages, children, what sex the marriages can be, what specs the kids can have, abduction frequency, etc etc etc. A lot. Since Sims 4 is really really bad about not having story progression, eventually all your town residents will have died out and if you have City Living you will have 200 homeless Asian sims that are mostly single parents… this mod fixes that by creating families and aging them properly, moving them into available housing, etc.

I usually get bored of this one after a few days, but I think that save file can really help as it especially is the dull neighbourhood & pre-made Sims that annoy me.

That being said, I really am ready for TS5. I feel like TS4 was bad from the beginning and can’t be saved, even with popular expansions like Seasons being here now. It simply lacks the soul of the franchise and was poorly executed from the beginning. I just want them to move on now and release a better game. The idea still is so amazing, it’s just the game itself that sucks.

It depends on what you like, here are some suggestions:
>Make a sim and try to max all their skills and earn enough money to buy the most beautiful lot
>Try one of the challenges posted online (100 baby challenge, history challenge, rags to riches, whatever)
>Try to make your dream home (this is the best part of the sims for me)
>Invite friends and take turns making the ugliest sims you can
>Turn on sim autonomy and just watch them do whatever, and take screenshots. Works best if you have lots of sims on a lot because there's always something crazy going on (this has become my favorite way of playing)
>Come up with a story and try to play it out in the sims (warning, if you get really creative you'll just end up disappointed by the limitations of the game), for example a farmer sim who inherited their grandparents' property and can only make money off of the land (yeah I ripped that from harvest moon), or a witch who must never leave her home, or make a sim try to make as many friends as they can and then try to make them all hate you in various ways
>Try to make a beautiful neighborhood (if you are playing sims 3 download the Create a World program)

Gamescom had a billion SW things announced today. Seems Disney is pushing it really hard but to think the Star Wars Land tie-in (Batuu is where their SW park is "Set in") would be the fucking SIMS is killing me.

Too bad we didn't get a game pack that the community can do something with. What pack would you have liked anons?

I personally wanted a pack with a distinct world that isn't North American looking. Maybe Spain or Japan could be cool. I feel like gameplay is never actually that different across packs (you craft stuff for the vast majority of the content or you go to rabbitholes) so I'd mostly like a new and pretty world to play in.

Gameplay-wise I'd probably want something that adds nuance to sim interactions and adds those small tidbits we loved from Sims 2. Romance obviously gets really samey quickly, as do inter-generational interactions in families. Something that adds a lot more social gameplay would help craft stories imo. Same goes for drama. A pack centered around your sims' relationships and strives to stir shit up would be my ideal pack.

I don't want more arts/crafts, I don't want new careers because they're all boring and the same, I don't want tedious shit like having to generate electricity for my house.

No. 106284

I've created a lesbian only sim (with magical WLW babies with a tiny chance of adoption mixed in there) save where I injected the town with a lot of pretty and single sims. I wait for MCCC to pair them up and breed them while I play my legacy and every couple weeks I go to edit world to kill the ugly/obese ones. If they're fixable with a couple minor adjustments I fix them up but otherwise the ugly get deleted. I try to keep track of the kids, sometimes families have too many and the houses make no sense so I cull those too sometimes. When I find some parents who consistently have good offsprings I give them the "immortal" trait so they can just infinitely be paired with random sims and give me good townies. A bit psycho I admit but it's better than the eyesores I used to get plus doesn't require me to actually make new sims nor download from the gallery. I highly recommend setting up a system that suits your tastes if you care about the overall look of your townies.

Anyway it's been a few sim-months and I've gotten some amazing generations with unpredictable-looking but attractive marriage candidates for my legacy as well as some cute families to swap to when I'm bored.

No. 106471

For me it'll come down to the items that come with the pack, both build and debug. I do use mods but I have a high standard for what looks good. I want props to blend in with the professional level art the Sims team puts into the game so I still prefer EA-made build items over cc unless the type of furniture I need does not exist outside of cc (comfortable but stylish looking couches being something I downloaded online, for instance).

Gameplay-wise even a pack I thematically enjoy usually has lackluster features (what the FUCK was realm of magic ugh)so well-made meshes and textures are what I'm usually looking for in a pack at this point. Give me good setpieces and worlds and I'll craft a plot with some gameplay mods like Slice of Life and Meaningful Stories. I really do hope someday they'll release an expansion pack specifically for story crafters that includes a lot of the features I currently maintain like 5 mods to experience.

I know they always do this shit and it’s expected at this point but can we talk about how not only did no one want this pack but they also completely half assed it too… that dumbass textured mask is like baby’s first Alpha CC and there aren’t even new aliens, it’s just a costume. That ‘Letter from The Sims Team’ was a complete joke too, basically saying ‘We know what you want but you’re not getting it anytime soon! Also skintones are getting pushed back… sorry not sorry!

No. 107329


Honestly anon, I'm feeling you. Even with all these expansions, it feels like every aspect of the game is wildly incomplete. For builders, the game lacks matching swatches, for people that actually play the game there are so few traits and everything feels samey and perfect. There are probably a million other things Sims 4 lacks compared to previous games, but I at least wish Build/Buy would get a matching swatches overhaul and gameplay would get a traits overhaul. This game is just has less to do than ever before despite the insane amount of DLC. It's sad honestly, and yet they still give us shit like Star Wars.

I am running the sims 3(and 10gbs of mods) from m.2 Samsung Evo 970. Was a total game changer for me, but I had the cheapest SSD I could find before this one so…

No. 107492

As the other anon said, things are too "perfect". It's the little things, sims 2 had this whole thing where they made sure each premade family comes with their own drama and the starting day is a different pre-built scenario which is a really nice touch. My sims 2 families always involved at least a couple instances where people were slapping the shit out of each other and doing things to piss each other off. Sims 4 does not really have that.

I actually get a lot of use out of the negative traits in Sims 4. I use the negative character values from parenthood (especially the insensitive one), evil, jealous, clumsy, etc. They often end up creating friction or at least sims react to things in an amusing way. Highly recommend utilizing the more negative traits!

I dont agree with the buildmode swatch issue that's been raised though. I think plenty of items match and it's kinda fun to try and find things that share swatches. I like that there are tons of different colors that aren't the same because I don't like using the same colors and furniture for my builds. I also don't build monochrome so using two wood colors and some wild accents are pretty par for the course in my houses. I imagine if you're really fond of white and black it will probably get annoying though, as there are a lot of varying versions of b/w in the game that definitely do not match.

i TOTALLY agree about the negative traits in sims 4 being more entertaining. the most interesting character i have ever played was this glamorous, snobby old lady with the dastardly trait and the criminal career. it was fun trying to throw successful dinner parties while also pickpocketing and getting into fights with the guests.

but usually, i skip the gameplay part of sims altogether. i was the kind of kid who would spend hours arranging a dollhouse but would quit as soon as it was time to play with the dolls, and i guess this is just an advanced version of that lol.

…which is why i would KILL for the swatches in sims 4. if y'all couldn't tell i use a lot of black and white, and as you pointed out it's really frustrating when the shades don't match up right. and if you want to match wood colors, you can't separate it from the other parts– ex; if a room is dark brown and red, and the dark brown bedframe has a lime green bedspread, you're just fucked.

No. 107521

The beds are the most irritating part of decorating for me, those damn sheets never match what I'm going for. I've started to plan the whole room around the bed, that saves me a lot of headache now.

I do wonder why they didn't make the blacks and whites match. The sort of builder that uses those colors probably wants it all to match perfectly, that's just how monochrome folks roll. It's a bad move from EA.

I've themed each world with a different architectural style so it's all coherent but I haven't yet found an identity for Newcrest. It used to be my Japan but now that the new pack arrived I need to find a new vibe for Newcrest. What do you guys think? I refuse to use the lilsimsie style BLUE FAMILY HOME shit, I want it all to be distinct.

I've got:
>Willow Creek
Creole/bayou, tons of community lots like jazz bars and bakeries.
Georgian, mostly townhouses and some matching architecture for each campus.
Queen Anne
Mostly Tudors, the rural looking side is overgrown mansions and cottages and the more "downtown" parts are townhouses. The island is Scottish, think those stone houses with grass roofs.
>Oasis Springs
Spanish/Mediterranean, with the red terra cotta roof. There also is a huge steampunk "amusement park", a waterprark, and a pseudo vegas strip that's surrounded by midcentury homes.
>Forgotten Hollow
Gothic colored gigantic victorians. There is also a graveyard for my funerals with a hidden underground bar where Vlad's house once sat.
>Brindleton Bay
Top left area is San Francisco, top right is all farmland and a shabby looking fisherman's lodge. The island houses the museum of my legacy family, that way I get to store all their cool stuff without having to build annoying mansions. I just take my heirs there each gen to dump all the achievements.
The dock area is all repurposed factories turned into trendy community lots and there is an Ancient Roman looking bathhouse where that massive lounge used to be. It's a weird place but I love that bathhouse. It reminds me of a Cheesecake Factory but a spa lol
>Evergreen Harbor
Scandinavian eco homes. They all have grass roofs though. The big community centers are made to look like repurposed factories.
>Magnolia Promenade
more creole
>Del Sol
Just LA tbh, lots of community lots because I think it looks more novel to visit rather than to live in. There is more than one Starbucks here.
>San Myshuno
Again almost entirely community lots, I use the apartments if I'm gonna live there.
>Granite Falls
Overgrown chalets. There is a gigantic abandoned train thing in the 50x50 national part lot and a campgrounds obv.
I kept the native style here, just used more fleshed out lots that look more lived in. Also added a lavish museum to replace the weird shack looking bullshit they had in it originally.
I turned this entire place into community lots in its native style. Nobody lives here. Mostly wedding venues, beaches, restaurants.
Just upgraded the fairtytale homes with actually nice looking ones.
>Mt. Komorebi
I put mostly Machiya homes in this world, though there are some lots reserved for onsen and the 50x50's are a "japanese village" and an art/yoga center that's quite sprawling. Thinking of adding some Japanese style apartments instead of just single family housing.

Check your file names. I've had the same problem with TS2. If the file name is too long the game fails to recognise it. If you use Clean Installer (you can find this on MTS) it will inform you of what files need shorter names. The other issue is sometimes you need to enter live mode before CC will show up in build and buy mode. Also remember to check "enable custom content" in the game options.

What I don't understand is why Maxis/EA doesn't put coding in the game that would prevent mods like this from working.

does anyone remember the old sims community? (think late 2000s/early 2010s). i was around for it and tbh i miss it a lot. some "drama"/incidents i recall from back then:
- TheQuxxn, a very popular sims 3 youtuber, dying suddenly and now her sister runs her channel.
- CrystalFirexx (a HUGE creator at the time even though her series was Vampire Diaries/Skins/Degrassi-level shitty) having her channel hacked and deleted and how there was a whole community campaign to reupload her series to her second channel (which was accomplished actually, Natalie ran "My Life" for several seasons after she got hacked), people even made icons in support of her lmfao.

i really miss the old machinima community, i was friends with some creators. 90% were shitty teenage pregnancy emo series with the same rehashed plot over and over to the point where creators memed it and it was a meta joke, but there were a couple of gems. i remember snapshotofasoul had AMAZING machinima series with full casts of voice actors, i was jealous af of her sets.

Plumbella actually has autism so it checks out

They’re both insufferable along with lilsimmie and the scrote they form a quartet with. I can’t even remember his channel name because his content is so boring.

I had to unsubscribe from plumbella not explicitly because of her incessant troon pandering leaking into her channel content, but how she went full tra “jk rowling bad!!1” despite being a massive potterfag. And she was completely silent on every other sjw issue at the time too (spring/summer last year.) It’s so fucking grifty. The worst of her actual videos has to be when she plays Urbz. I understand that she had no prior experience with the game, but holy shit she was worse than a child. While playing she kept messing up to the point where I think she got tired of trying. It’s one of the best console and overall Sims installments, yet she managed to make it uninteresting.

Looking at it now I see she’s removed the continuation to this video where she had to get taught by chat how to move her fucking character past the bouncer in diamond heights.

Urbz is more than one of the best console installments, and I think it holds up when paired with a lot of ts4 packs. Despite not being as big of a world or have as much opportunities as a base game with EPs, the Urbz world is very expansive for its small size. And we actually get to play while they’re at work kek

my least favorite simtuber along with deligracy and the Australian scrote. Lilsimie perpetually looks like she just sat on her hermoriod and the other 2 look like they escaped a cloning facility sponsored by EA, and manage to make they make the least memorable content

No. 131765

Yeah, the australian scrote is whom I was referring to. I think he and deligracy are married. Both of their content is so boring and overdone that I forgot deligracy exists.

I actually prefer Deligracy’s play style compared to the rest of these people. The content is boring but she’s more laid back or reserved than the others. Nitpick but her mouth gets really annoying to look at. The lisp doesn’t bother me as much as the skull/face structure. It’s like Jarvis Johnson. Vidrel this simtuber plagued my feed for a few weeks and I got bored of the recycled content so I unsubbed. I’d noticed is that every video she has an unflattering ReadyToGlare tier cheap wig and nobody in the comments says anything about it. I think plumbella is the best looking “big time” simtuber. And I don’t mean this to be shallow, it’s merely an observation that most of the bigger sims channels that show their faces are average at best.

Prescripted, faceless sims youtubers overall make better content imo. With the exception of the likes of Pixelade who is the troom troom of sims. He makes so much redundant content for no fucking reason. Every tweet and forum post gets its own video.

She actually just made a video about it. She shows she is balding because of pcos and admits that she filtered the word wig because so many people made comments about it. I do feel bad for her, i think she just had 0 experience with wigs and was so stressed so she never bought a decent one. She is saying that she is going to donate them all and stop wearing them so i guess we don't have to be bothered about them anymore kek.

Are you talking about The Sims Supply aka James Turner? Could have sworn him and Deligracy were in an actual relationship and they’re both sims youtubers. I kind of respect Deligracy only because she had the balls to collab with a great cc creator named grimcookies and the items in the collection are very good. Most sims youtubers praise or attempt to embrace the modding community but most of their gameplay says otherwise, they are mainly EA simps to the T with very few exceptions (ex. Carl Sims guide). Lilsimsie is like the Drew Golden of Sims youtube. She builds the same houses or usually gimmicky videos based on builds she made for her Twitch audience, she never curses or goes out of line because she wants to maintain herself as a general family-friendly channel. Her “I’m not as talented” shit gets on my nerves because stop building the same house where a white LC user would live in 50 years suburban blue and build something out of the box.

Lilsimsie, Steph0, and Plumbella are the quartet you’re confusing yourself with.

Damn PCOS is a menace. She has my sympathies completely. I’m glad she felt like she could finally come out with it because I fucking hated the silence about the wigs kek

I was never big on her TS2 content but I’ll check it out.

Yes it was The Sims Supply and I agree with everything you’ve said! I thought they were a quartet because I saw a collaboration between the 3 with James and they were all pretty chummy. It was a very mediocre video I couldn’t finish. 3 boring players and 1 overdone over the top personality gets boring. I love Carl’s videos even though nearly all of his ts4 reviews can be summarized as “this is shit, EA should have done better” kek

This challenge and the “breed out the ugly” challenge never made any sense to me because people would create an ugly sim and just… custom content them out of their ugliness? Like there was no real transformation, you just make an over exaggerated sim and then undo everything to make it pretty and with nicer clothes again.

I wish it was more creative, like they had to make the ugly deathfat sim, use a mod that categorizes sims as “disgusting and unattractively ugly” and try to bring the sim to the beauty standards of their town. Otherwise this challenge is never really a challenge at all. Or at least I wish it was more about trying to work with the features the sim was generated with, and working around them instead of bulldozing them completely. Like an actual challenge.

Honestly, I feel like this will be another one of those 'well the modders fixed it so we won't bother' things, or it will come several years later
C) I've seen some people say that the trait improvements for neat/perfectionist (not sure which) sims are taken from the dust kit which also let you to 'polish to perfection', but even without that it seems like a lousy update

On the subject of Sims 5 - seeing as it's likely to be online/multiplayer, I honestly can't see it taking the stuff that made Sims 3/2 good and the stuff that made Sims 4 good to mash it together. It seems likely that we will stay with the building mode (as that seems to be the only thing that made Sims 4 good), but the gameplay will be as bland, unless they somehow utilise playing with other players which means that the 'offline' (assuming we get that) version would be shit.

Sims 4 toddlers are adorable but so fucking stressful that they completely derail the game. If you want them to have a decent childhood on a shorter lifespan you have to basically build a baby containment center. Sims 2 toddlers cried in their beds all day but they were made of tougher stuff.

I used the world Moon Valley which is downloadable from the sims3 store and bulldozed most buildings except for the ones I couldn't be bothered making again (the equestrian centre and junkyard).

The little market you see is something I curate myself with some of the townies, they all grow fruits and vegetables from home and sell it at their stalls for other townies to buy. I made a big bath house which you can see in the bottom right, but I'm not overly happy with the columns.

How do you play the sims, nonas? I'm interested in hearing about what's happening in your current save. I personally usually do a legacy challenge every new game, but my longest legacy started having too many ugly sims spawn, homeless sims were allowed to move in so every world was populated by fat reheaded asians with latin names and I felt like my legacy family had a poor dating pool. I then started up a new save, remade every premade sim so that they were more attractive (some people at ea/maxis have never seen a human before, there are so many unbelievably ugly premade sims), disallowed homeless sims moving in, and let them mccc center and wicked whims do their thing to get them to make more good looking sims to save and then put in my legacy game for my legacy family heirs to marry. Except I got really invested in the 2nd save and I've been exclusively playing it for months now. Now I have multiple families that I rotate around. I think I'm on my 6th generation in save #2

No. 181748

i only play ts2 and i do the same. i love playing legacies and watching a family populate an empty neighborhood. sometimes i start with multiple families just to make it more interesting. unfortunately i get super bored of my sims when they get too rich and their houses get too nice kek. it's really weird. i already have that hack that makes bills way higher and a hack that disables the automatic inheritance to the family/friends after a sim dies, but they just earn cash too fast sometimes.

No. 181769

I've been playing Sims 2 pretty much since release, so at this point in time I'm just trying to make the game more chaotic challenging for me, which includes
>no cheats, obviously
>modding the household limit out and keep every single sim until they die in some way or another (my record currently lies at 19 sims at once)
>more dangerous fires and diseases
>harder homework and jobs
>higher bills
>no perma plat status for granting life wishes
>fight anyone anytime regardless of current relationship
>potential death by childbirth (still looking for a mod that could kill your sim at dangerous jobs if you chose the wrong chance card)
>slower skilling
>blind needs, if I'm feeling up to it

I've had CJs Edukashun Iz Gud mod for a while, which made it impossible for sims to get to the higher levels of any career unless they went to college, but I hate playing college, so I took that out and replaced it with job stoppers. If anyone has mods that might the game worse, please link them, I'm always on the lookout for more, since even like that the game could be a little harder, still lol.

my ts4 trophy doesn't let me know after 15th generation, and I don't use mods in general so I'm just vaguely guessing that my legacy play may be at 20th right now (I need to keep track better..)
Picrel is one of the households I managed to take photo of, I made the purple girl married to Bess (Eco Lifestyle NPC)
Alien breeding is also very fun imo. The toddle twins are grown up and moved out by now

How many did you get keep your first save?

I solved my ugly breeding sims problem by using cheat cas.fulleditmode as they become teenagers. The manual CAS for my sims to stay attractive and not wearing ugly clothes have been a major chore for me, otherwise it's still pretty fun! I'm actually having trouble to have one of the household to stay alive long enough to unlock a hidden career item in Eco Lifestyle the meat vertical garden

I never play with families of sims, I don't make them age or have children, I don't ever find that fun. I just make up my own sims to live in the city, make their houses and play with them for a bit until I get bored then I move onto the next sim. I got bored of everything very quickly until one day I decided to make jojo characters as sims and watch them doing their random shit, that was so fun. They can just do whatever and I'll be laughing hysterically

Oh yeah, I can find raising children can be tedious and there's not much to do when they're at school all the time. And the toddlers really keep my adult sims so busy to have fun on their own (this is so true in real life lol). I still find children sims are absolutely adorable, I especially love the animation when they interact with a pet. Maxis' animation is definitely top-tier despite of gameplay's degradation tbh.

does anyone else have some hope that things will get better with ts5? ea will nickel and dime everything like they've been doing but wasn't one of the reasons ts5 sucked at launch because they had to remove all the online features?

No. 182018

I don't have hope at all. The executives at EA are hellbent on shoving online social features and microtransactions into anything and everything without having any understanding of the video games they're doing it to. Executive meddling with forced online killed SimCity 2013 so they made Maxis turn the online sims game they were working on into a full single player title. Maxis were given a year to do this and that is why TS4 is a broken mess with bugs and missing features. Other Sims base games have had a four year development cycle. I fully expect EA to do the exact same shit with TS5, rushed inadequate development and forced features nobody asked for. I can't say I have much faith left in Maxis either.

i play ts2 and ts1 exclusively, in ts1 it's mostly the same i just build stuff and grind manically to make a successful celeb or magic sim, or i play the premades. in ts2 i also have two playstyles. one is where i play the premades a ton without ever saving because i need all the families always being at their starting point so that i can replay different "routes" for all the characters without having to reinstall. i have a weird emotional attachment to the premades so i can't have them be gone from the game or change or i will get so much anxiety for no reason lol. i also love the unique "event" message things when you first enter their lots (like when you're encouraged to make cassandra marry don), that shit just does something to me idk why. my other playstyle is making my own neighborhood from scratch, doing all the public and private lots and filling it with families. i love the roleplaying/storytelling functions of ts2 so i always write bios for everyone and everything, make up complex stories for all the families and the town, make photo albums of important events of each familly's lore as well as photo albums for the whole town like the premade neighborhoods. rn i'm even working on editing a main photo the same style as the premade neighborhood stories have with like a cover art thing with the "main characters" of the town all edited together doing their thing (this is proving to be so fucking hard though since i can't edit photos or use photo editing programs effectively for shit). i'm also kind of ocd about writing everything in the sims 2 writing style, idk how to explain that though, i kind of mimic the style and syntax of the descriptions and bios and everything and write to make everything i do fit in with the unique tone/aesthetic of the game. don't use any mods or cc, i have used teen pregnancy mod in the past because for some reason i just love making angela pleasant become pregnant with her bf dustin broke and have her family disown her over this, leading to her and dustin having to move in together and live tragically like trailerpark people. i also love doing this with romeo and juliette in veronaville for obvious reasons. anyway, i'm also working on making my own university and city for my neighborhood. obviously this is all a huge timesink, i have only had a few somewhat complete neighborhoods in my life, and i've played since forever.

You can reset the premade neighbourhoods without reinstalling the game. There's clean templates of Maxis hoods that have had some of the corruption issues fixed. You can just download them and replace the existing version of the neighbourhoods whenever you want to start a fresh play through.

It's also possible to have more than one version of a premade neighbourhood installed. This tutorial explains how

You can use testingheats just fine, I actually have it activated all the time in my startup file and haven't had my game corrupted in close to a decade.
Read https://sims.fandom.com/wiki/Game_guide:Avoiding_corruption#Avoiding_game_corruption and especially get the mods at "Avoiding neighborhood corruption>Have too many Sims in your neighborhood." You can use Mootildas Hood Checker at MTS to check your neighborhood for corruption and Boiling Oils No Trash Memories at leefish to have the game not create useless memories (instead of having to get rid of them by the batbox periodically). Since you also talked about long legacies: the game doesn't recognize some sims as family past a certain point (like aunts and uncles of the spouse, or anything further away than grandparents), so I'd recommend faiuwles family hacks to have your game recognize great-grandparents (usually they don't live long enough anyways, but just in case you also play with custom life spans), second cousins, spousal family etc.
I know this all is just a band aid on a broken bone, but the game hasn't caused me any problems in years like that lol.

also my game just crashed in CAS when i rolled the pacifier on a couple to preview how their offspring would look and i'm torn between "maybe it's just ts2 being ts2" and "i bet some cc is conflicting and now i have to sort it out." but i haven't changed any of my genetics in months - which i assume would cause a crash when rolling the pacifier - so i don't think it could be that? ugh.
