There's probably a billions more things I didn't know about TS2. I know most everything about TS4 and I hardly ever play it. Meanwhile, TS2 has been out forever and I keep learning more and more about it as time goes on.

Don't worry, I'm sure you know more about TS2 than EA does.

How about additions from previous games being included in the fucking base game of the next installment??

Lol sorry. I must have been daydreaming again.

Since I've suggested this before, expect to get answers along the lines of "too hard, too expensive" and "if EA added everything from previous games in the Sims 5 base game, the game would cost more than a ticket to a Lady Gaga concert."

I'm exaggerating, but people always seem to find a way to justify EA's methods.

Personally, I don't think it's asking for too much to have laundry, pets and rain in the base game (along with other basic features).

Considering this time they couldn't even give us toddlers. idk HOW you can expect pets
Rain and laundry could and should be base game features, though. Because they're things EVERY human being on the planet needs to deal with. Anything that is universal across all human beings should be base game.

You hear me EA? if you ever put death or taxes in an exp pack we'll riot.

A tax expansion would mean a tax refund, and you know what people get with their refund checks? Things. Imagine the gameplay objects? It would be a reason to bring back that simulated sky diving & scuba diving tanks, because I GOT MY REFUND CHECK AND IT WAS ON SALE! NO I DON'T HAVE ROOM FOR A 20x20 TANK, BUT I WANT IT!!!!!

I might sound like a horrible person, but I kinda want sims to be able to get injured. Like... fall off the playground - broken arm - wear a cast for a while. Things like that. Perhaps more dangerous illnesses. Currently the only one that is any trouble is Gas n Giggles with +2 playful towards death by hysteria. :\

OMG... Hiccups! I want hiccups!

I mean for my sims, not for me :x

Now, I don't know if this has been a thing yet, but I would love like a combination of the workshop and the body shop. Wouldn't it be cool if you could get onto the workshop and get a new style for your shirt or a new pattern. I know that one thing that people didn't like about the Sims was the lack of style options, and I wholeheartedly agree on that. Finding good clothes is a struggle unless you use mods.

I also don't believe we need more realistic gameplay. Sure, maybe the AI could be touched up a little and the graphics kicked a notch, but we don't need to put in more responsibility into the game. I hear a lot of people complaining about how the Sims is straying away from a realistic simulation. It's a life simulator, but it's also a game. I believe we need to balance the fun with the realistic aspects of the game, because you can't have both.

Would I like to see farming? Yes, it'd be a great addition. It's realistic and it balances fun too.
Would I like to watch my Sim take a massive shit? No, it's too realistic and not fun.

A combination of the traits and personality points mechanics...
Traits are inherent characteristics/talents, and personality points are the various nuances that comprise a character.
Example: A neat artist
A messy chef
Etc.

I want Sims 5 to focus on relationships between Sims. Make them deeper and more meaningful. Long-time friendships that are really important, bad romances, sims that your sim likes that don't like them or the other way around...

I've wanted one-sided relationships since forever!

That would be great for me, If execution on implantation is done rigth. For some reason, in TS2 I don't really bother making friends for my sims for some reason. Somehow, I just can't find available time to do stuff for relationship building, with the exception of building romance between a sim or two.

Chemistry could take a return to the next iteration now since that you mention liking/disliking, as well as the turn on's/off's as the determining factors.

Room and object ownership should really be fundamental to the function of a household. Basically you plop down a room and assign it to a Sim, and every item added to that room belongs to that Sim. If any other Sim messes with those items or goes in the Sim's room it would result in some conflict. Also, Sims will be more likely to first participate with objects in their room than in other parts of the house.

In a household with multiple Sims, there would be a common area, not owned by one particular Sim, where any Sim can use the items but if they break anything or leave a mess it could cause conflict within the household. Imagine mixing slobs and neat freaks together.

From there the system can be expanded to have realistic gameplay for apartments, real estate, and public spaces.

I talk to myself but no one answers ;_;

I love this idea, but now I've got this horrible image of EA trying to put loading screens between rooms in the same house!

I really want the combination of personality points (a la Sims 2) and traits (a la Sims 3). "Clumsy," for example, would be a trait. Neither "neat" or "slob" would be - you'd be somewhere on the neatness scale.

That's one thing I love about Sims 2 - asymmetrical relationships were possible. Frankly, that game's attraction/chemistry system is the best they've ever come up with. (Even counting the borked attraction item - "custom hair" never worked.)

2:speaking of number 1,a kid life stage,I think there should be one,basically this life stage comes after child and is supposed to look like a 8-9 year old kid,what would be different is of course apperance and they would be a little bit taller than a child plus the things they could do,like perhaps a kid could go to things like after school classes,do any cooking that only requires a counter like both salads,be able to read to toddlers and children and generally be a bit more independent.
3:A young teen life stage,iv'e never understood in the sims series how you can go from a child that looks about 6 to a teen that's aged at least 10 years,as the name suggest's it would be a life stage that continues from kid and is a sim that looks about 14,they still being just young teens could have relationship's but not doing the more adult things like exchanging rings,messing around or flirting,but like holding hands and kiss cheek and things like that,also they would be able to be left at home and can take full care of babies but not toddlers,they could also get part time jobs,but the jobs wouldn't have skill requirements and work time would only be at max four hours.
4:Job requirements,let's face it,it's unrealistic that you can get any job without having experience or skills,so as it suggest's to even get a job you would have to have certain skills,also there should be degree's as another requirement,depending on the job you'll have to get a certain degree at a certain level,higher level degree's have skill requirements but the lower one's don't.The higher the level of degree the more it cost's to pay for that set of classes,each degree you enter will have a day counter saying how many days you have left (the max level having 20 days) and will highlight which days class is on and at what time.
5:career bonuses,I don't think it's ever been done to this extent but basically each career your sim is in has different perk's,abilities,and interactions,like a progamer would have a 60% higher chance of winning game tournaments,get gaming item related discounts,have the ability to assess another sims videogaming level,and have the interaction to 'talk about iconic games' and 'share game theories'
6:Relationship recognising,I don't get why my sims would be sad over a stranger dying,yes they died but they were a stranger,basically sims would react to certain social and non social situations depending on the sim or sims there,like the degree's of emotion for a certain situation would depend on the relationship between the two sims as well as both their traits,example 1:A sim died,if they were strangers or acquaintances :Good sims:A +1 sad moodlet lasting 30 minutes called 'A sim died" At least their in a better place among the stars' Evil sims:+1 happy lasting 30 minutes 'someone died' 'That's one less sim to deal with',friends,good sims:2+ sad for a day 'my friend died' 'they were a good person' evil sims: 2+ happy lasting a day 'my 'friend' died' 'They were pretty annoying anyway',best friends:good sims: 4+ sad for 2 days 'my best friend died' 'They were the bestest friend a sim could ask for,why them?' evil sims: 4+ for 2 days happy 'my best friend died' 'i'm suprised they thought that we were best friends' girl/boyfriend and fiancee/fiance good sims: 10+ sad for 5 days 'my derest is gone' 'they was the penut to my jelly,the salt to my fries,but now their gone...' evil sims: 10+ sad for 5 days 'My derest is gone' 'even I have a heart when it comes to some sims,now we'll never get married' wife/husband:good sims:sad+15 for 12 days 'my soulmate died' 'We were supposed to be together forever,the brightest really do go out the quickest' evil sims:sad+ 12 for 12 days 'my one died' 'they were the only one that truly understood me,i'll miss them with all my being' and ect

I'm confused, children ARE supposed to be like 8-9 years old....

well really they're supposed to be 5-10/13, cause uhhh, then it's off to high school! xD

Still, they certainly don't look 6 to me, not at all, I've worked with 6-year-olds, trust me, they're waaaaaaaay younger than these sims. I'd definitely age these kids at 8/9.

Though I agree wholeheartedly we need a pre-teen stage. That jump from 8 to 18 is not subtle... There's a lot that happens to a person in between. Those ten missing years are really important!

WITHOUT the new parenthood pack, back when I did play, kids merely seemed akin to adults, without exclusive interactions. They weren't all that fulfilling to play. Even worse was my now favorite life-stage, teenagers, who were adults with less muscle tone, and voice depth... I'm sure these things have been at least partially rectified with the new pack, however I sill feel as though fundamentally speaking, every non-adult life-stage in TS4 is rather lacking, and I doubt I will ever revisit it-for now...
Therefore, I feel as though we need a whole new exclusive set of interactions for child, teen, and perhaps even preteen sims.
Not only would this greatly enhance one's immersion in the game, but it would also prove rather aspectual to the intricate balance maintained between realism, and fantasy apparent in earlier installments.
