The only thing that comes to mind is that the patch gives you some time to prepare your existing sims for the weather-changes,so they wont freeze to death. And from a selling-perspective,it´s probably just a way to tease players to buy the EP.

Indeed.

If I wasn't getting seasons I would still welcome the hot/cold category. Instead of having a skimpy summer-y outfit in my everyday rotation I can have it in hot instead.
Like, for a sim that lives in Windenburg when it goes to Oasis Springs for a pool party kinda thing. Or Oasis dweller going to Windenburg with the "cold" outfit on.

I didn't catch on tho... have they remarked all/all suitable clothing to fit into the categories or just the new ones with this pack? Since there's already some wintery clothes in there.
Also is autumn considered 'cold'? I kinda feel there should be a middle ground, just a normal outdoor category for when it rains.

A Halloween festival would have worked better. Have bowls of candies and adults standing for kids.

I loved the park festivals in TS3. Don't see why that wouldn't work here tbh

Btw, are these goals individual for each Sim or for the whole household?

I liked seeing fasting included as a tradition, too. I was honestly surprised! It shows how with a little bit of imagination and care they include these features subtly to allow people to represent themselves and create meaningful gameplay.

I think the holiday traditions/goals are per Sim, rather than Household, as when you select a toddler it greys out and I believe at one point, Sims who weren't involved in a tradition didn't get the gold check mark.

We all know it's bad.


Or just remove this system. I think by removing this system will make the game process more immersive. But then devs have to create a lot of new animations, facial expressions. And this requires a lot of effort. But why the Sims 2 developers did not use this limiting system in 2004, when the graphics level was no so developed than now and 4 years ago? They were confident in their creation. They wanted to show that their sims are alive and react almost like real people. And the absence of moodlet system increases the empathy for these Sims.

Strongly disagree.
you know.. there are non-Christian players who wouldn't like that holiday forced into their game play..

I don't know about that, Halloween has been so mainstream-ized and generalized that the original Christian holiday is no more. Very few people these days consider or even remember Halloween as a religious holiday. EA honestly could have gotten away with it, especially with the fact that they're an American/Western company, an extra explanation why the games they make are so ... well, characteristically American. Same thing with Christmas really, it's more of a "Santa and gifts" holiday than one actively celebrating the birth of Jesus. As an agnostic, I would have no problem with a game featuring historically Christian holidays and traditions, because it is hard for me to see them as religious things.

Hah, I've always thought that it was a heathen thing with a little bit of Christian veneer to justify this grotesquerie.

At least here, in plain old continental Europe, it is mostly seen as an American - and very secular - invention without any relation at all to the following holiday.
If there was one day here that is loaded with more Christian tradition and more closely resembles your Halloween in its basic meaning then this would actually have been April 30, Walpurgis Night. That's when here the devil used to break loose, traditionally. But we don't celebrate that very much anymore. The kids will rather want to run around town on October 31, pretend that we're in California and play Scream #56. I guess you could call that successful cultural colonization.

Perhaps it's future-proofing, so they can add more outfits with every future pack.

Better to have useless categories in the base game than categories that will never be updated again, like previous games.

All American holidays have been bastardized. It is always about who gets what and how much did they spend. EA has bastardized the sims. There isn't much of leap here...

In the UK unless you are into Trick or Treating Halloween is a night to keep your lights off and pretend you are not in! We seem to be taking on the American celebrations here as it wasn't much celebrated 20 or so years ago. (I might try a party in Sims 4 though). We have Guy Fawkes Day bonfires (He failed to blow up UK Parliament) on November 5 shortly after. Children made a guy, carting him around the streets asking for a penny for the Guy who was later burnt on the bonfire. One way of getting some money then but not anymore!
In Scotland, New Year's Eve is the most important festival so I hope there are enough objects for that! Lots of lights and bonfires cheered up people in the long dark days of Winter here. Countries in Europe have all got different ways of celebrating Christmas/St Nicholas. giving presents and on several different days too.

It's what I do myself, yes, as some tenants think I am some kind of Concierge living in a flat on the ground floor. Too lazy to get their keys out. The Postie has a key and my family and friends give three buzzes on the intercom or ring me first!

I suppose we get into the habit, a. to avoid Jehovah's witnesses (can't get rid of them), b. Political party supporters (can't get rid of them either) and c. people sticking advertising rubbish through the letterbox. (too many of them).

And that's the beaaauty of customized holiday. Remove traditions you do not want and include those that you do want. Something for everyone.

But people here prefer to have what THEY WANT and what THEY consider as mainstream
who cares about minorities who doesn't want those holidays forced into their game
I mean, how come they are not celebrating Halloween anyways
and why would they care to celebrate it in the game against their own beliefs, right?

than they will go to the thread about disabilities and talk about EA being narrow minded and inconsiderate
