PostSubject: Questions about The Sims 4   Thu Jul 10, 2014 4:18 pm

I would like to ask some questions about the Sims4 game. I'm still undecided if I should get it.
If someone knows answers or a link to the information, that would be great.

1. I have no clue and haven't found much info about how the worlds in Sims4 will work. I heard about neighborhoods that are barrier free, and that one can change neighborhoods within the world...?????
I don't know what I've to expect it seems very confusing to me.


2. We are supposed to be able to play other Sims, which are not our household? Or did I get that wrong?



Maybe if others have questions, they can post in this thread too.

Check Sims VIP as you will find the most current and complete information there, including a fact sheet as I recall.

The world Willow Creek has 6 neighborhoods. 5 have up to 5 lots in them and the 6th has one big lot. Your sim can leave the lot you are playing and go to the open area and there is no loading screen. If the sim goes to another lot in that hood or to one in another hood there is a loading screen. And there will be loading screens I am sure to go to another world. They just officially announced the second one.

I think it is just like 3 that you have to switch to another household to play it.

Thanks daisy, this helped a lot to narrow down the info I had to read.

here's the links I found to answers of my questionsd:

1: Neighborhoods and Loading Screens
http://simsvip.com/2014/07/02/the-sims-4-loading-screens-the-world-explained/

2: Playable Households and Story Progression
We can play disfferent households and can switch between them. We seem to have to, for story progression lies in our own hands:

Thanks for the links. I got a new computer, so I can get it if I want to, but I'm going to wait. I'll check out the CAS when it becomes available. Everything I hear makes me want it less. The sims do look pretty cool though. Right now, I'm busy reinstalling everything on my shiny new computer. Heavenly to think I'm done patching!

Grats on the new rig Smile  Hey everyone!!  I had a little bit of time on my hands so I thought I'd drop by.  RL's been keeping me busy Sad  

Anyway, how about them Sims4 huh? Smile  I like what I see sorta. I like what I've read that's coming with the game but man oh man, did they really have to take out toddlers?!?!  I know, base game, don't expect EVERYTHING which I don't, but the "not included" list is just getting longer!!

Anyway, love that you can take any cutting in the world and plant it.
Love that your utilities will be cut off if you don't pay your bills.
Don't like loading screens all over again... but as with anything, we will all get used to it all over again.
Don't like that there won't be schools, workplaces, your sim just walks off the lot like in TS2.
Hate that there's no CASt but I expect I'll get used to it, after I download all the recolours out there that will be created.

Oh well.  I don't have the demo yet but I'm not sweating it.  I'm sure I'll get it when they roll it out to everyone.

As for buying it.... we'll see what they present at Gamescom.  Definitely on the fence.  I think what I'll end up doing is waiting until I see everyone's posts before I decide.  Also, I'll need to wait for the modders to get their hands on it because I'm not crazy about the hair and they don't have eyelashes.  I need those CC before anything else Smile

To everyone that got the demo, great looking sims guys Smile

I'm not sure if there is a TS4 thread here dedicated to CC or not. But I was wondering if any of you have dl'd CC. And, if so, if you've found any major issues with the game after doing so. I don't have it yet but I played while visiting my mom. I prefer building over playing. And I find the building boring. But the CC is tempting. LOL Thanks in advance for whatever awesome information you can give me. Smile
