A couple months back some 3D concept art was leaked for a pack call "Modern Line". Well SimGuruMeatball has confirmed it to be a fake and i for one am pleased to hear it is.

I don't think that Modern Line was fake..
I think it was scrapped for some reason (thanks God)
At least that's my thoughts

Maybe it was one of those "we are listening" moments, except what they heard was us laughing our butts off.

Actually I'm looking at the pictures from "modern line" and I'm kind of sad these aren't being made. I like the weird looking furniture. It looks like something a steampunk-ish alien would use.

I just don't understand how "Movie Hangout Stuff" was viewed as a necessary addition at this point in time. Unless EA have a pressing to desire to let Sims "Netflix & Chill"

I don't understand why it's something for home, and not something to make a proper venue with. Yes, one could put a movie projection screen on a wall in a theater and call it done, but no ticket machine? No concession stand?

I thought we were past these hurdles in the series, but I guess not. Seems like a waste, but I don't work for EA.

Don't get me wrong, I have no problems with stuff for home - it's just a bit of a waste to stick a projector on a wall on a commercial lot and call it a theater, though I think it'd be nice to have movies airing in the park.

I don't think that will stop them from releasing a theater venue in the future if there's a market for it. The trailer shows the pack is focusing on watching movies at home so there's not that much overlap in my mind. For example, we've had swimming pool before GT, and the EP introduced more items and the venue type.

#663 Old 6th Jan 2016 at 7:33 PM
+1 Neia, we must keep in mind that it is a stuff pack and that it doesn't bar them from adding future venues. Hell, the next GP could potentially be used with this SP just as Perfect Patio blends seamlessly with Spa Day, perhaps it could be a hint towards a GP related to hanging out, hobbies and stuff. :P

ETA: This was the last thing I would've predicted as the next theme for an SP though, but it's something, I guess. Never really saw any demand for home theater stuff afaik.

I don't think we're getting a theater venue after this. A home theater, and a movie theater - that's too similar. I can see things the ticket machine being added, and a concession stand to another kind of pack, but nothing specific to a movie theater. That's a train wreck waiting to happen.

I chuck it up to a missed opportunity. *shrug*

Apologies, but I'm not understanding your logic here... They gave us pools (for our homes), and ended up giving into a community pool venue, albeit, a year later. It's not officially a "home theater venue" it's just objects to set up such setting. There's absolutely no reason a community movie theater venue could come later down the line, be it in the next GP, or the urban life EP that we're all eagerly waiting, if that does ever come around. It may look like a cinema, feel like a cinema, and semi-function as a cinema, but it's far from an actual cinema.

ETA: Note, the lack of actual cinema chairs.

Pools were always available - put one in a gym, or in a park - it just lacked a proper lot type until recently. It still functioned the same. Oddly, all of the pool deco is in Get Together. Never understood that.

Anyway, I'm arguing against a commercial lot for the purposes of creating a functioning movie theater. As for it coming later, it would be EA shooting themselves in the foot, as they would have to go out of their way to make even more movie theater content, when the screen here was perfectly fine. Yeah, stick one on any commercial lot. That's not the issue, associated content is. If a theater venue came in a patch, sure - but that would be GP territory. I'd expect a theater venue to functions like a real movie theater - get a ticket, get snacks, wait for the film to start, and go watch a movie when it airs, and leave then it's over.

In retrospect, a movie theater would have been perfect for some sort of dating expansion, alongside a restaurant, and bowling (bars and clubs are already in the game). Since there's a theater here, I'm not expecting to see another one of any kind later. I just keep feeling like EA could be doing more with content that's being released, but it's nothing special.

I feel like the content in these stuff packs should be reserved for smaller, fun things. Like, a home gym - add some new work out equipment. Home Garden - add some light gardening equipment. Nothing like a home theater - they had to actually go out of their way to make new movies for this thing. Again, I'm not expecting any sort of theater venue. Ever.

might be interesting IF they support something like custom vids in mp4 or some other common format where you can just stick them in a folder like you do with music.

Because they didn't have the time to add the shoe rack.

That's what happens when you try to sell desirable gameplay objects to people - you have to pad out the pack with useless objects.

Prime Example: Cool Kitchen Stuff has more CAS assets than kitchen assets. ON TOP OF THAT, there's only two aprons. NONE of the other outfits have anything to do with kitchens at all. Furthermore, there's one style of kitchen, and they went as far as to add an entire dining room set to an already lacking kitchen pack. Didn't even add any matching versions of existing counter appliances (like a new tea pot, microwave, or coffeemaker), or alternate versions of the glass cabinets. Even the islands are backwards.

It's just one big design joke sometimes.

Edit:

Also, I just counted how big the TV is - it's 7/8 tiles wide. That's a good enough reason to put in on a commercial venue. It's as big as all hell!

Eh. I can live without popcorn and a giant TV (something that's not all that impressive anymore, now that we can resize objects). That's two stuff packs in a row that I've decided to opt out on. Hopefully February will have something better in store for us (if they're still doing that "New content every month" thing)

I with some people as to why boho is part of a home theater pack. It just doesn't make much sense. Yes people want more entertainment objects and people also want more furniture and CAS styles but that doesn't mean you should put them together at random.

I am also with TMBrandon as I don't see any reason why they can't make a movie theater gp or add it as part of an ep later. They can add another projector probably a bigger one, add a concession stand that sells popcorn, drinks, candy, hot dogs, and nachos. Make proper theater seats, add a ticket booth and make NPCs to man the ticket booth, concession stand, and man the viewing room doors and collect tickets.

I can agree to that, I want another gp preferably a vacation pack but another venue pack is also good.

I'm actually more disappointed in the actual content of the pack than the idea. I think we could really use some more, normal looking couches and living room decor.
