Everything Wrong With The Sims 4: Strangerville

  • Published: 24 February 2019
  • Ranting about the builds and mistakes in the new Strangerville pack and then challenging myself to fix them. (Spoiler Free)

    Building with Strangerville today! https://www.twitch.tv/lilsimsie

    UPDATE: Since recording this I have played through the entire game play aspect in the pack, and I did have fun! CAS is decent too. This doesn't change the fact that I'm still really disappointed with build mode, but the majority of the world is wonderful. The furniture objects in this pack are...interesting. The windows/doors/build items are AMAZING. Overall, I don't know how to feel. There are definitely some things that could've been better, but I did enjoy a lot of this pack. I might still pass on this one.

          I didn't play much with strangevile. But I'm not surprised about the house. EA likes to copy paste stuff. They are really lazy and only care about money. I forgive them when they copy parte certain animations because as a animator myself I know it's hard to do and I also copy paste my animations and change one or two things. But when they do with buildings like this is just shows how lazy they are.

            The guy who lived in the bunker never got to discover he couldn't use his kitchen because the first thing I did was visit him and he was trying to use the stove, then the stove caught fire, then he caught fire an died, I collected his urn and put it in my house.

              Also, they keep filling their worlds with "false" buildings. Like, the house you took inspiration on... Why is it NOT a real lot ? Why do we only have fake lots ?

                  What they should have done is put in a little tiny tiny switch.. where you can either shut off the infection or turn it on.. how hard could that be? Either you jump all the hoops and shut it down yourself.. or all your worlds end up with Zombies walking the streets.. Top right hand corner, Game Options, you will find options for Seasons, Options for Get Famous, Options for just about everything else.. but NO OPTIONS for Strangerville to SHUT DOWN THE INFECTION.. WHY EA? WHY? So, we all go through shutting it down.. and you got it shut down and you figure.. the only way to have to play it again would be to go to the base and TURN IT BACK ON YOURSELF.. but no.. EA does an UPDATE and Whalla.. they turned it back on in the update.. As soon as I went into Strangerville, it turned back on by itself. because EA turned it back on in an update.. So now I have to go do it again.. So I am trying to figure out the best way to cheat the game to get it shut off as fast as possible.. I figure one of two ways by going back into old saves when I first had to shut it off.. either save a player with a full inventory with the player, or a lot with a full inventory of what I would need.. the player idea did not work out.. the inventory was empty when I tried to load the player.. but.. stocking up a property worked well.. so after placing the property, I go and put everything into the inventory of the player and head off over to the base.. and I notice after heading over there.. my inventory was now empty again.. so I Mused around the base and having scavenged about all the papers you could.. I headed back to the House.. and I replaced the house again with all the supplies in the house and reloaded the player's inventory.. and this time the inventory stayed.. I figured I had to visit the base first before I loaded the inventory.. so with a full inventory of whatever I needed, I went back to the base and used the card key to open the place up.. which released the spores all over the place.. and then went back in town and recruited a three townies to come and help me fight the beast.. and we did that.. Just want to say.. Thanks EA... After I was done.. I created a basement under the plane in Strangerville with a full allotment of whatever I need to take it on again in the future.. Why? Because there is NO COUNTING ON EA to do what they should do.. put in a little tiny tiny option for Strangerville in the options menu.. Just could not do it could you EA?? How about Next UPDATE EA??

                                  I feel like this and many other reasons are why people are totally okay with pirating this game... it doesn't matter what minute things you remove for pirated versions...

                                      What build hacks do you use? Really wanna get into building in the sims, but sometimes things just don’t go where I want. I try bb.moveobjects but sometimes items still don’t go in some places.

                                        Just watched ur everything wrong with magic video, yes a little out of order, but I literally just think they need to hire you on their build team. You are clearly much more experienced and knowledgable and the fact that their own build team is so sloppy is very frustrating. Like WHO are they hiring over there to do this?

                                                                    Your face when you saw the archway into the bathroom was priceless. I have actually seen that in real estate photos of real houses though. I think it's mostly for couples who don't care about privacy or for people who are single & aren't going to have anyone in the bedroom while they are in the bathroom. Still isn't good for moisture (in real life) bc it allows the steam to go into the bedroom.
                                                                    Bathrooms with no toilets would bug me. The fruit bowl stopping cooking from working would also really bug me. That kitchen just looked awkward. The crash site was really cool though.
                                                                    Your complaints are all valid. The layout of the EA starter home was horrible. I think the layout bothered me more than the fact that it was a virtual clone of a basegame one. If they had to copy a starter home, why one with such a terrible layout?

I feel like I need to apologise after spending two hours remaking magic HQ and fixing EA mistakes.

I think EAs greatest failure in a pack like this is that nobody hired a real story teller with something to say. Empty victorian homes were the perfect place to sneak in things that would have drawn the player into the universe rather than force them to fill empty space. Something as simple as scorch marks a room filled with ways to extinguish, water, bunker, etc, or matching stains in every single house in the exact same spot each time.

                                                                                        OR MAYBE IF YOU WANTED SoMEBODY TO KNOW THAT THE HOUSES WERE CLUTTERED AND ABANDONED YOU WOULD MAKE A FUCKING FOR SALE SIGN TO PUT OUT FRONT
