Back to Base Game Basics explores the options currently available by playing The Sims 4 base game  without any add-ons. There were a few surprises when I looked for things taken for granted that were added later with different packs. Specifically sky gazing and cloud gazing which I use a lot but they were not added until Outdoor Retreat (January 2015) was introduced. The ability to craft garden planters and pots also came in that pack. Although singing was not an available action until City Living (October 2016) cameras and the photography skill was added to base game via a patch.
Conversation trees were easier to navigate without all the extras. Grafting plants actually worked and most (all?) plants showed a higher yield of ten harvestables per day. And since there were no seasons anything could be grown year round.
Besides missing sky/cloud gazing it was a bit difficult completing some collections. I did complete the fish and all but a couple of the plants.  I was missing the special plants that were part of limited time quests.  And no chemical analyzer (Get To Work March 2015) to collect elements faster. No Get To Work EP also means no alien abductions which made me a tiny bit sad.

Overall it was liberating to play without the add-ons.
Would you try to play with just base game objects and options?

There are a lot of new/newer players with only base game or a limited number of packs.  
When posting at AnswersHQ  I found myself suggesting things that were not base game.
So I decided to explore the basic options to be a better helper.
