I don't know if these have been mentioned already, or if they already exist, but this is what I'd like to see:

Railings (4 clicks high to use on foundation stairs) that are placeable objects, so we're not stuck with the same old ones every time. I'm thinking big concrete ones with flared edges, like in front of a library or something.

Sound-effects speakers that don't play music, but instead play stuff like jungle sounds or birds in the trees, or even circus music or crowd sounds. Those would be handy to hide around in certain types of community lots.

Clothing stores that have a limit as to what type of clothing to sell. Who wants to go to a T-shirt kiosk on the beach to buy their wedding dress? It would be great if we could pick 'n choose what to sell at each clothing store, so that if you want bridal wear you have to go to a bridal shop, or if you want gunge-wear you have to go somewhere else, etc. Make it chooseable like the menus in restaurants.

These don't have concrete ones but do have 3 types of balustrades. http://modthesims.info/d/613942/pro...-stairs-system/

Thanks you two, those railings will make a nice change to the usual ones!

Ah man, a few I thought of while looking at the businesses thread in the pictures forum:

Road edging tiles and crosswalk tiles, with perhaps some matching curved or angled edging tiles. We were given asphalt tiles with and without lines, but not these finishing pieces to make nice pseudo-roads. Also, matching potholes, patches, and cracks for a more weathered look.

Yoga mats and/or a hack that stops sims from moving away from where they are put when directed to do yoga or jump rope! The mats would be clicked to direct a sim to do yoga, if they are able, and the sim would walk to it and take position on top of it. Maybe a work out mat with a similar function. The other hack would be useful because one thing that continues to frustrate me is putting a sim in a nice open spot to work out/do yoga/jump rope and they decide to go mash their face into a wall. Or, worse, move away from the open space to a wall/furniture and then complain they don't have room.

There are workout mats https://nixedsims.wordpress.com/201...5/exercise-mat/ not for yoga though. You can get dance positioners http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/s...ic,16980.0.html I think that might work for keeping them on the spot that you want.

For road edges and crosswalks: http://modthesims.info/d/254576/upd...ow-with-curves/
For cracks and details, there are these recolours of Phaenoh's floor overlays: http://modthesims.info/d/363482/flo...the-dirty-side/
Phaenoh's mesh and some other great recolours are here: http://modthesims.info/d/362815/flo...sidewalk-chalk/

Thank you both! I'd searched for road tiles before but never had luck finding them. Also, I wonder if those mats could be edited to have a similar effect with yoga? Might have to put that on my 'learn about it someday' list!

Y'know what'd be nice? If the "sit" interaction got "relax" animations - daydreaming and reading, particularly. Not, obviously, if a sim sits down with them; but a sim randomly sitting on a bench in a park could pull out a book and gain some fun and literature enthusiasm.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

Did you have any specific stairs in mind, or just general concrete stair balusters? I have a bit of a stair fetish, and this sounds like something I'd like to give a shot.

Also, I have something similar to what you describe in my game ( I won't swear to it, but I think they're made by Holy Simoly{not sure if that's a simmer or a site}), but have no link. - probably because they came with a lot.

I want a mod that allows sims to confess their infidelity to their lover(s). I enjoyed that feature of The Sims 3 when I played it.

I've been thinking a bit about those ugly lot imposters. Objects[ can be rendered as high-quality in neighborhood mode, so I'm wondering if there's some way to force the same thing for structual components like walls and roofs.

EDIT: I found this. i'm not sure if it supports my theory or not: http://criquette-was-here.tumblr.co.../the-roof-is-on

Reverse directions for all the Maxis spiral staircases. Yes, I have marvine's. Are there any others?

Something to nix kids cheering about their grades after the first instance. There's probably something that gets rid of it altogether, but I like seeing it--once. After that, it's like, you have the same grade that you did yesterday, is it really worth cheering and dancing about again?

I've got one or two things on MTS, but most of my stuff is on my main site here:

Since I know nothing about modding or what may be possible I'll just add some things I've been thinking would be cool ideas. Kids being able to earn a bit of money. Getting a phone call from random neighbor asking them to do a bit of yard work, run an errand, walk their dog or maybe watch over their toddler while the parent cooks a meal or something that needs tending without watching over a toddler at the same time. This could just be a simple phone call and child leaves the lot without the lot pausing if there's anyone else home. They could arrive back an hour or 2 later with a bit of money, possible a skill, depending on what they were doing. Ideas for skills social or creativity for tending toddler, cleaning for yard work, body for running errand or walking dog. Maybe teens get a phone call for babysitting while parent goes to work or grocery shopping without the little ones, or maybe tutor a child or another teen. (:

When you forgive, you heal. When you let go, you grow.

[Not "Check out this" post] Speaking of customization, what If there was a way to allow makeover/barber stools, perhaps even in unowned lots, to make haircuts and facial features out of your chosen selections and presets on townies? Like a check list (maybe with buy-clothing user interface) to determine what haircuts could be made on sims. And with it being more advance, on what townies and what hairstyle-cuts could be scripted on respective your-choice townie (hire employee HUI but unlimited list), or at least a check what haircut from which haircut changes will be applied.

An example: I set up townie sims with haircut X to "ask for makeover" for a haircut Y. Or sim who is Bob Derb, Velma Cavemadam, or Dickson Summers will all go for Z haircut, because who been disgusted with hideos abonimations when walking past your household's lot.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.
