I think I may be more upset about these loading screens than toddlers - not sure??

Looks like the campaign for No Rabbitholes has been realized. Zero grocery, work or school lots at all. Sims just go into the Ether and then return.

How is that any better than Rabbitholes? At least when they went to the RHs you could get some screenshots?! See them in the car on the way to work, etc... I wonder if this means no cars, etc? Do you even need them?

So NOT impressed, gotta tell ya  tongue

Still posting from phone. But seem to recall mention cars not needed the way things are set up.
Sims just walk off lot and then magically reappear.
Which reminds me .... what about births? Just disappear pregnant and reappear with child? Or home births?

Went searching for info on cars and found this on SimsVIP.
http://simsvip.com/2013/05/07/the-sims-4-fact-sheet/
Quoted from the page:

Below is a list of currently known objects within the game that Sims can interact with.
• Cars (It is currently unknown how Sims will enter the cars)
• Voodoo Doll
• Cow Plant
• Cupcake Making Machine
• Violin
• Piano
• Guitar
• BBQ Grill
• Rocket
• Punching bag
• Treadmill
• Basketball court
• Telescope
• Microscope Set
• Chess

There was also this:

Those are interesting, what the links confirmed was going to be in the TS4 base game. It's so unrealistic to expect everything in the new base game, like what we have now with TS3. We have been spoiled with TS3.
If I were to look forward to anything about this game it would be having none of the playing problems we've had with TS3. Black screens, crashing, freezing, halting game play action, etc.
TS3 base game was so new ( loved the open world ) and interesting I wasn't ready for the next EP ( but of course got it anyway).
TS4 will have interesting and different things to experience, I am sure. If I don't like where it's going I don't have to buy it or any expansion packs. But it sure sounds like it would quite an adjustment at this time.

I agree Gram. We can't expect to have everything in base game but it sure seems like some things are lacking in this new base game. I guess the best way to think about it is that this is a new game. It will be very different from The Sims 3. I've only played the open neighborhood of the Sims 3 so the loading screens would be very forgien to me. Not sure how much I would like it.

I am glad to see cars have an interaction....but now I am not sure of the point of them...unless your sim will drive from the active lot to one of the other 4 inactive lots and then the loading screen takes your sim inside the lot. I must say, I would really miss the toddlers. They are one of my favorite parts of the game. IMO, they could just remove the infant stage and go straight to toddler....the infants are cute but boring. Oh, I guess it might be too painful for our precious simmies to birth a toddler....can you imagine?????  eeek 

I agree to that it would be a great improvement if the new game runs smoothly like it should but with the experience I've had with The Sims 3 I guess I find it very hard to believe they can do it.

Thanks for all the info. I'm once again leaning toward NOT wasting my money and getting TS4. But like it was mentioned it's like a train wreck and you just can't stop watching and reading about everything being leaked about TS4.  scratch maybe it's time to call GameStop and see if they will have the manual in before the game is released.

I'm not particularly impressed by the loading screens, I much prefer an open world.

I'm equally not thrilled about the lot limit. I'm a builder...I like to build! So what good will all those nifty building advances do for me if I can't build on an empty lot of my size choice?  

No cars...no toddlers...teens-elder all the same height possibly able to wear all clothing - I'm sorry but I may like to dress like I'm not 49 and I sure as aces don't want to see an old lady (no offense to anyone older than me) wearing a mini-skirt and belly shirt because I don't wear them! That's just not age appropriate. It is nice though that if your sim is pregnant you're selection of maternity wear won't be so restricted. Let's get back to that no toddler thing. Who in the heck thought of throwing away the toddlers!  Surprised That has got to be one of the most ridiculous things I have yet to have read! So your baby is just going to miraculously turn into a child? Or have they gotten rid of children too and your baby becomes a teen? Completely stupid.  No 

No schools, no grocery stores, no rabbit holes...so basically just like in TS2 when my sims disappear I'm left staring at an empty home. Gee that sounds like just so much fun! At least in TS3 when they go to school or they go to work you can at least go birds eye and zoom into other parts of the world and see what's going on! Maybe something is happening and you want to send your sim there? I've never really went to the grocery store in TS3 to buy produce or anything so not having the grocery store really won't phase me.

I would have to say at this point...the only thing that will make me buy this game is something really good has to be said. What that is...I don't know...yet. I'm afraid that EA just may have killed The Sims.  VikgAxMad  Out Cold

So true! I really do that a lot at University while my sims are in class.

There will be an open public area near your active lot, as  I understand it. The videos they've posted do show a lot of activity of the townies. It is so disappointing that the steamboat and tram are not usable by the sims.

I never minded the RH for to me they fill up the town and make it look more real, but that is in an open world where you actually can see the world. I have my doubts that the sims will get cars. This seems to be a totally walk world. There are lots of things we were told in the past we would get and are not getting so my guess is that is one of them.

And what about a world builder?

Some things sound nice/fun, but how many times do you want to visit the common areas and lots in such a tiny world? I can see getting bored really fast. Seen that, done that.

And I do not like that the other households just age and die. If I split off members of my family I would have to micromanage them just to keep them going? I am not a rotational player.

The game is SOOOOOOOOOO limited compared to what we have now. And I still cannot imagine no CASt. I use it almost every time I play.

They said a new family would move into the house.

I wonder what they have been using money on for this game, it looks very slim at the waist.

But..... EMOTIONS!  Surprised  Whistle 
I think it will be a whole new game altogether.
Change is good but ... they have thrown the baby... or in this case toddler... out with the bath water.
Lots of "bright and shiny" things presented in a way to make you want to love the new game while getting rid of all the things we have grown to expect.

Yes .... but if new children are not moved in how will our families find friends and future spouses?
The idea of making friends with history ... existing family ties ... is appealing to me. I don't mind the occasional game generated 'orphan'. But it is fun to find out you have become friends with a 3rd generation Goth or Lothario or some other founding family. So I guess if those family lines are to be kept alive it would mean going door-to-door to have them procreate.

I remember the loading screens in TS1. You just waited, that's the way the game was. Forget what they were like in TS2 but probably the same. We have loading screens in TS3 too but I will miss following my Sim and having them jog down town or back home.
I don't know hat TS4 is going to do for me but one thing it's not going to do from what I've seen is it's not going to replace TS3.

I wonder, could they have a CASt outside of the game like they made CAP. I can't imagine playing a Sim game without it.

CAP aka Create-A-Pattern was another great idea that went kind of sideways. It was fun to use with a bit if a learning curve and took practice. But then the patterns did not always transfer to the exchange. So you would get some questionable results when downloading.
Some people like MW did a fabulous job and I had a whole collection of her patterns.

MW did make many great patterns. Once CAP was learned it wasn't too had to work. I enjoyed making patterns but as the game grew...well some things just had to fall by the wayside.

I lost heart with CAP when I couldn't upload a house I had built full of CAP patterns. I had to remove them all to get the house to upload.

What's the point in showing gameplay, when it's not the real gameplay?
