      No. The first thing I notice was that there wasn’t any toddlers!

          I just want skin tones to have a color wheel. I don't need color wheels on anything else (though hair and eye color would be nice too). I feel like this would help with the really poor skin tone choices.

                I wish, kind of like the new story mode in CAS, they could add in the option to have more specific aspirations/stories for your sims. You mostly control and decide everything they do so it can be a bit boring after a while... it'd be nice if they could pick their own unique aspirations independently and kind of direct their own lives with you the player tagging along. Having events in their life (fires, abductions, etc.) influence their character and allowing them to pick preferences that impact their actions as well would be cool.

                Also amputee arms/legs and wheelchairs maybe?

                  Such rich sheep in the comments. Enjoy paying $400+ for a video game sucka's. Too bad you don't have someone controlling you so you don't stand in the fire and burn.

                      i've probably played 4 more than any of them, 1 might be a close tie, I've owned them all, I still do, physical copies, but I think with the Sims 4, if you have just the base game, it is possible to have fun with just that, but with the amount of content and packs in the game, and the fact that every one of those packs includes features included in the game as a whole, and it's the same for all the Sims games like for example Seasons, if you install Seasons, not only do Seasons impact the entire game from then on, even you task bar gets permanently impacted with a weather bar. Vampires, are in the game no matter where you are. Sims have options when talking to other Sims, that appear in the command bubble that come from specific game pack. I'm trying to think of one, I haven't played in a while. The base game is alright, but when you really look at what the expansion bring combined. I can't play JUST the base game. It's too boring. 1 Expansion, 1 Game Pack, 1 Stuff Pack even, something, but not just the base game.

                        That's the other thing too, you see the SIms 4 for like $12 sometimes, often, that's what I paid for it 4 years ago, you're thinking "right on, good deal" and it is, but guess what? Each expansion is $50 full price... there's 7 or 8 of them

                              The sims 4 is still crap. In TS2 traits actually meant something. Shy sims would practically run out of the room if they saw someone whoohooing. If the parents were arguing in front of their child the child would run to the other room and cry. They had turn ons and turn offs so there was a chance they could never be attracted to some sims. They had interests that would be chosen at random and you could actually see the differences between them. The "discuss interests" chat option could spark a heated debate if you had an environmentalist talking to a sim that hates nature. Even in the Sims 3 it was fun guessing the personality of the sim in front of you based on his quirks and speach bubbles. I find myself always doing things to spice up my sims 4 game and the sims not reacting to anything. It's like they are completely oblivious to the world around them until something monumental happens. The neighboors also don't have character, nobody does anything based on their traits, or works. They are just there to fill the place up and surround your sim. My sims power get's shut of and they don't care, it's not even an annoyance. Baby's are objects!

                                  I agree about the types of stairs! Spiral, L shaped, and diagonal. More entrepreneur jobs like nanny/daycare, teacher, coach, etc. I think adding more baby/toddler stuff in like cribs (for toddlers too), changing tables, activities, etc. I agree with one comment about elderly stuff! Knitting, puzzles, things old people do lol. I know you said they weren't looking at doing but I miss being able to customize anything with the color, texture, and pattern option. I like matching things and it can be hard doing that with what is given. I could sit and say a bunch more but these are my main thoughts about it. :)

                                    I’m still so jealous about not being able to scale down objects (even bought a new keyboard hoping it would help) that it puts me off building in the game. Praying the will fix it in every new patch but it never happens. Guess there are not enough of us (with nordic keyboards) having this problem. ☹️

                                                    Das Gameplay bei Sims 4 ist auf dauer langweilig!! Das Bauen ist cool, auf jeden Fall. Ich muss sagen die Interaktionen der Sims sind bei Sims 2 und Sims 3 echt um Klassen besser!!! Bei Sims 4 langweile ich mich echt!! Man muss ja Challenge´s spielen um Spaß mit den Sims 4 zu haben! Und dann immer wieder diese Anrufe , echt langweilig und unlustig. Wo sind die lustigen Aktionen wie Grubenmaschine bohrern, Band gründen, auf Party´s eingeladen werden, Kochduelle etc!!

                                                          If they have first person mode, should be able to make the Sims walk yourself (wasd) and click things to do.

                                                            I really hope cars come back in sims4 but it is already a closed off map so I doubt it is going to happen unless they make a big patch and have the world combines together. (+ the graphics of the car should be improved from sims30) However with that said, I actually quite like the closed off maps HAHAHA unpopular opinions I guess.

                                                              And so far (even though i started playing when the game was free) the game seems alot more enjoyable than it was on release.

Tables that convert to beds. Smaller stoves/ovens or even hot plates instead. Speaking of stoves, I want a flattop stove. You know how some people have really fancy stoves on their islands. I want that. I know I can put a normal stove but then its got the raised back and that just looks tacky.

I am so happy they put the gender thing there because i was always so frustrated that women only had "girly" clothes, and not something maskuline, because some women feel so uncomfortable in "girl" clothes. Clothes is just clothes. So im happy they solved that! (BTW this video helped me alot on what is new after 5 years!) LOVE YOUR VIDEOS JAMES!

The only major bug then was the musical chairs, while that bug still exists, it's now overshadowed by the countless newer bugs and many more serious ones. Why we scream and scream for those bugs to be fixed, we instead given 200 door swatches, gallery updates or a complete rebrand of the theme and logo, and other useless eye candy.
