Old thread has been dead for more than a year now so I'm starting a new one.

Discuss everything Sims related here, mods, cc , what you like and dislike.

Also feel free to post your own sims.


I've been playing Sims 4 and what I miss the most is the memory system of Sims 2. For example, in TS2, sims used to have good and bad memories - for example first kiss, starting a business, relative dying etc. They would remember those memories - a sims that has been cheated would randomly start crying etc. I wish that kind of system was implemented in Sims 4.

No. 8881

I feel like the Sims 2 had everything I ever wanted in a Sims game and it's really disappointing a lot of those features disappeared over the course of 3 and 4. Imagine a remaster of it, maybe with the neighborhood/real time system of 3…that'd be amazing.

Even though 4 has more content how it's still honestly very disappointing. It's missing SO MUCH from 2 and 3 that it might as well be a shitty remaster of 1.

i actually like ts4 the most out of the sims games probably. ts3 was nice too, ts2 was cool but our game was full of bugs which probably gave me bad memories of it. i just really like the visuals in ts4, compared to ts3 its so much less uncanny

the new trailer for sims 4 seasons reminds me of 2 in a way? it feels a bit more goofy and focused on relationships between sims and those are the parts i love about 2 that i think later games don't do so well. 4s grown on me a lot but mostly for building houses and sims with custom content rather than playing with them, i think it gets boring faster than 2 and 3

Just finished my finals and started playing Sims 4 again yesterday because I always have the urge to when I'm studying!

My goal is to usually make a "perfect" town with "idealistic" families. Does anyone have any tips for making your own buildings? I usually look up floor plans for famous buildings for the basic shape and that helps a lot but I still suck at it and end up downloading most of my buildings.

Also the way I play gets really boring, anyone have ideas on how to spice it up? I tried owning a business but I had to cheat in order to buy it, which I don't like doing. Also it's annoying you can't have multiple active households so I can check up on all my individual families without losing progress.

How do you guys play?

I started playing the sims 4 again after finding a crack of all of it up to pets. Sadly it doesn't include game packs and stuff packs, if someone knows a crack that dos I'd be thankful!

I started making just me and my bf, now we have 5 teenage children. I feel like I'm playing a bit too perfect, with both parent's careers maxed and all the kids having straight A's. The only different thing is that I changed my bf's sim's aspiration to wanting lots of romance partners and that has been fun, having to make sure no one find out, having bastards, all that jazz. I'm planning on making one of the teens a vampire so that should be fun too, I've never tried it before.
I like building too but I'm not very good at it. I want my family to live in a beautiful castle but it's not exactly how I want it yet.

My main thing was the sims 2
I have all my stuff on my old laptop and keep telling myself I'm going back to it but kinda want to install it on new laptop

My neighborhoods were all over the place and colorful and now and then I'd get really into building/decorating lots just to have photoshoots with my simmies and then got into actually making loose narratives

I really miss that

The Sims 2 was my favorite thing growing up. It's sad that instead of building up on it, 3 and 4 just seem to have scrapped a bunch of features and made only tangentially related games.
At least The Sims 4 characters seem to look the best (haven't played it yet), but The Sims 2 was most fun. Meanwhile, The Sims 3 is just trash-tier both visually and gameplay-wise.

Can anyone think of any pros for the Sims 4? I'm tempted to torrent the expansions, and I already bought the base game but I just can't find any appeal to 4. I've always loved the open world feel of 3 so to see that it's not in 4 was a huge letdown.

I loved sims 2. It was for me hands down, the best version. You had a lot in your base game and the DLC had good content for the price.
Also you had a ton on really cool fanmade stuff, even i made some myself (which was really easy) and the end i had so much stuff for this game that the loading took age.
Sims 4 is really not good, you need a shit-ton of money to buy even the basics stuff, what every sims game had without packs. I can't get over the fact that you have to buy a pack so you can have 2 hot tub/ jacuzzi. In the other games you always had it in the basic game.
Or to get some hair that doesn't look terrible.
For the animal pack you only get dogs and cats where in the other games you got much more.
It is only money making…

It is so buggy, maybe i am just nip-picking, but my sims often just stand there and do absolutly nothing even if i told them what to do. Or they just stop something even if there is nothing in the quere of the do list.
Sometimes some think like 'go to bed' is stuck in the to do quere, i can't click it away and they stop doing thinks in the middle of doing it because of the 'go to bed' think.

Why do i need origins for playing this game? I don't want that.

I always have shitty, awful Sims in bad circumstances and trying to rise to the top from absolute rock bottom.

My favorite challenge was the runaway teen challenge in Sims 3 but I took it a bit further. I would get my teen Sim pregnant (through mods) then kill off the baby dad. Then I would move her to an absolutely barren lot and set her savings to 0. With the klepto trait I would go to neighbours houses and steal stuff to either sell or use. Otherwise I would dumpster dive and get a crappy part time job. Neither of which you can do when your sim goes into 2nd trimester which makes things tougher. Couple that with getting pregnant continuously, having to pay baby sitters, etc…it's a REALLY fucked up but fun challenge. I actually had a hugely successful legacy this way where the house grew with the family.

Unfortunately it's not really feasible with 4.

No. 8908

Hmmm let see:
-Better graphics
-Better house building tools (though no create-a-style sadly)
-Will work smoothly even on potato-est of the computers due to laptop mode
-Sims are more intelligent when it comes to routing, multiple sims are able to participate in a conversation
-CAS is better than Sims 3 in my opinion but it lacks color wheel


I actively play Sims 4 , bought base game but have pirated every single expansion, stuff pack and update and it still kinda feels like a barren game.
I think I'm gonna start a legacy in Sims 2 so I can compare what exactly am I missing from 4.

these are my opinions:

sims 1 (original)
>very restrictive, obviously, but i like the nostalgia aspect of it
>had some cool objects
>beautiful soundtrack

sims 2
>sims have a cartoony look
>no real variation with body shapes
>face editing is pretty advanced tho
>you also get the ''body shop'' program to make your own clothes and genetics
>great expansion packs, most of them are worth the money
>you get 3 neighborhoods in the base game with pre-made neighbors that have backstories and stuff
>you can make your own neighborhood from scratch which is pretty awesome
>graphics are rather poor and sometimes glitchy (the base game is quite old to be fair)
>lots of cheats which make the game really fun
>you can create your own community lots such as restaurants and pools!

sims 3
>improved graphics
>the sims themselves look less cartoony and a bit more realistic
>base game hair, skin and clothes are ugly as sin
>new create a style tool which allows you to give customize anything (objects, hair, clothes etc) with new colors and patterns
>downloadable content is great though
>really great expansion packs too
>you only get one neighborhood (iirc) with the base game, which sucks
>amazing open world concept; your sim can explore the whole town without loading screens, you can go anywhere you want
>the sims have more personality than before, you can give them zodiac signs, choose favorite color and meal and change their voice
>your adult sim can has 5 personality traits and a life-time goal (becoming really rich, certain careers, family etc)
>loading screens last f o r e v e r
>the game size is massive due to the open world concept and may crash often
>some expansion packs lag awfully (island paradise for example)
>''rabbit holes'' are lots in the towns your sims go to for work or school, like the police station or the restaurant, for example. you can actually see the building/destination but can't go inside.

sims 4
>going back to the sims 2 cartoon look of the characters
>create a sim mode is fantastic, you can drag on the face and body to change (like 3d modelling)
>you can customize body shapes however you want by dragging
>your sims are not restricted to gender, males can wear female clothing for example
>you can choose a (pretty vague) aspiration and three lackluster personality traits
>personality traits are extremely superficial and predictable (romantic, evil, outgoing…), not nearly as good as the sims 3; there are also very few options
>you can change voices and the way they walk
>zodiac signs were removed for some reason
>the create a style tool from the sims 3 was also removed, so you're stuck with the base game colors
>build mode is impressive, you have a lot of freedom
>amazing downloadable content
>new ''emotions'' interface, your sim can feel around 14 different emotions that affect their behavior (sad, happy, flirty, angry etc)
>new deaths although it is very hard to kill your sims
>you get three neighborhoods with the base game; all sims from any neighborhood can visit each other which is really cool
>no open world concept. you can not go anywhere you want anymore. lots of loading screens, too
>the towns look ridiculously cartoony and the designs are super lazy
>you get almost no lots at all…seriously, you get like 3-4 empty lots in every town and you can not add new ones like you could in ts2/3
>sims 3 had schools and workplaces in the town, sims 4 does not
>boring, cookie-cutter careers, military and politics were removed.
>new skills (video gaming, gourmet cooking, mischief etc)
>cheating isn't as easy
>your pregnant sims constantly have bladder failure for some reason
>multitasking was added, your sims can now do up to 3 things at once (eating while talking or watching TV)
>the base game alone can cost you up to 40 USD! Expansion packs are the same price. Do not buy it full price. I got it on sale for half of the price.
>ts4 is generally a rip off, you get very litte in the base game and even less in expansions for a ridiculous price

get ts3 or even ts2, ditch ts4. it's not worth it.

So I just played TS2 out for nostalgia and holy shit, Sims AI seems more realistic and advanced compared to the one in TS4.

I was fooling around with some random family, made husband cheat on wife with a maid.
Wife wasn't around but the thing is that their child was. Child saw dad woohoo with the maid and started crying WHICH made wife hear it and come running to see what's happening and ofc witnessed the cheating, relationship meter dropped down etc.
Later, both wife and child had a bad memory from cheating and would cry spontaneously remembering it etc. Also wife autonomously broke up with husband, who automatically moved away from house.

This feels so much more real than sims in TS4. They hardly react when their spouse or lover is cheating. Children don't recognize it either. I had one sim have children from multiple other sims and her husband didn't even care lol.

How can it be that a game made in 2004 has a much better AI than a sequel made literally 10 years later?

I played it but I don't remember much. Though what I do remember how even though it was a Sims 3 spin-off, it had a superior CAS and your sims didn't look pudding-faced.

Major problem I had with sims 3 was how CAS was shit and every sims you made looked doughy and weird. I had to download a shitton of mods, sliders and skins to make them looks decent.
Even then, all the other townies looked like shit so I had to spend a lot of time making human looking sims in CAS and getting rid of premade pudding mess.

Sims 3 is a clunky, ugly mess with superficial customization. I’ll take body morphing over color wheel any day. Being able to move rooms around over hot tubs. Quick loading screens little and often over a giant game that takes forever to load and constantly lags.

Sims 3 was a bloated unoptimized mess but still had way better features like the real time neighbourhood. The xpacs didn't feel like needless filler (the pets one for instance was so robust - having horses was amazing) and there was just so much to do and so many ways to play. Sims 4 looks better and plays more efficiently but it feels like the base game and every successive xpac are unfinished. Hell, the base game WAS unfinished to the point where they had to add pools and toddlers later.

No. 8937

>>8936
Think you need to do "testingcheats on"

then

You can modify Sims' relationships by using the somewhat long modifyrelationship yoursimfirst yoursimlast targetsimfirst targetsimlast x relationshiptype.
Relationshiptype is either LTR_Friendship_main or LTR_Romance_Main.
X is the percentage of the bar, either full, half, or half into the red (negative numbers). While there are many different relationship names, these are simply combinations of varying amounts of friendship/romance (either positive or negative).

For example:

modifyrelationship Bella Goth Mortimer Goth 100 LTR_Friendship_main - Bella and Mortimer are now best friends

modifyrelationship Bella Goth Mortimer Goth 100 LTR_Romance_main - They're now soulmates if they have a high friendship level as well

above is from http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/cheats.php

The cheats for the relationships are crap in sims 4, it's easier to install MC command centre and reduce the relationship decay setting, or you can add traits to your sim that reduce their relationship decay or build relationships faster.

Beloved
Everyone remembers a Beloved Sim! Their relationships never fade. enter "traits.equip_trait Legendary"

Memorable
Relationships decay more slowly.
enter "traits.equip_trait Memorable"

Domestic
Domestic Sims will see their familial relationships grow stronger faster. enter "traits.equip_trait FamilySim"

Gregarious
Gregarious Sims build friendly relationships faster.
enter "traits.equip_trait Gregarious"

I think my favorite part of TS2 was the stories for pre-existing families, and how they are all interconnected. It actually made playing the pre-made families worth it.

One of the things that bothers me the most is that sims doesn’t have memories in the sims 4, maybe a bit silly but in sims 2 I felt I could get more “immersed” with the stories I was creating. Like if my sim cheats on their partner in S4 they barely give a shit, they’re just sad for a day or two.

I've been playing Sims 4 on and off for 2 years and have been pretty disappointed with it overall. I think the game looks great, but the gameplay is so shallow that you basically have to rely on your imagination completely to get anything out of it.

Even with some of the latest expansions like City Living, Jungle Adventure, and Pets, which certainly added stuff to do, the Sims themselves are so bland that the game still feels boring. Everyone is hyped for Seasons, but it's just going to be the same thing. What good does it do to have all this new shit when the Sims all act the same, are never affected by anything long term, etc?

I've had to use mods just to make things interesting, but that can be a pain in the ass when they conflict, so sometimes it's not even worth the effort.

Sims 2 is still the best game. Theres no beating it once you have 10 gb of custom content and a game that takes 40 minutes to load. I'm not even being sarcastic, the game is thoroughly modded to hell and back and making a pretty neighborhood with a bunch of default replacements and lighting, grass and water mods, creative elaborate neighborhood deco, etc is the most fun thing ever. So is building houses using multi-part decorations, a mountain of OMSPs, and building cheats that allow you do shit as crazy as making a flat beach lot (if you got bon voyage when it came out you probably know how finicky the game is with beach lots).

Fuck, there was even one person over at Tumblr making a new custom UI. It's a completely different game at this point, and the community is still alive.

I just tried. They said they couldn't add it since it's no longer supported. I'm a bit sad now, I lost my games during a move and since I had them when that promotion was going on I didn't think about just getting it anyways.

it's actually pretty amazing that this almost 20 year old game still has such a thriving community, and the stuff being created is actually good. I don't understand how EA can look at that and then just keep making games even worse than the last. Hell, even adding memories to 4 would make it 20 times more playable.

I glitched the game so many times for them by deleting the garbage or mailbox or putting carpet on the sidewalk to make it look funky.

I still think that 2, fully modded and with all xpacs is the best of the lot. A decade of my life spent with that shit, lol. The community is so crabby though and has always been kind of snobbish and weird. I was always super supportive of my favorite creators but was otherwise a pretty quiet person on forums and whatnot because of it.

I suck at art in every way possible, but I wanted a specific custom sim made for 2 and was even willing to pay well for one, back when the game was maybe a year or two old. I always took pains to be super polite about it, but I was told I was being ‘rude’ and that I should ‘teach myself’ and it was just like fuck me, I’ve been trying to teach myself and they look like shit! Even doing the photo wrap on mesh technique, it always looked like a hot mess. It was so weird because if I had the ability I’d be cranking out custom sims for people left and right, especially if I were being compensated for my time. I remember getting absolutely dragged on MTS for asking and I just felt so bad.

tbh I’d still pay someone to do it, like seriously just name your price haha but I’ve basically given up. I wonder if it was because at the time, the creators were all older people and maybe didn’t get it? It seems comparable to me to someone commissioning an artist on tumblr or whatever but I guess not. I know this sounds kind of bitchy now but I swear to god I was always super nice when asking about this, I never sent out blanket messages to every creator in the book or anything like that, it’s just something that still makes me crabby lol.

I only have TS4 base game and I modded the hell out of it, yet the sims that come with Willow Creek and Oasis Springs are so fucking boring.

Like how did TS4 manage to put Don Lothario in a house with Dina AND Nina Caliente and not give some sort of semi-intriguing story line? Not to mention the Goths and the Landgraabs who basically are devoid of personality which is a shit stain on their story lines just from TS2.

Are there any suggestions that you all have to make the town more fun? Even downloading traits and mods doesn't help the fact that the sims have no personalities of their own. Esp with Wicked Whims, which just leads to sims fucking random people who happen to be on a lot. WW has resulted in a bunch of children being born outside of a marriage, and in regards to sims having kids outside of their marriage, the spouse never is upset/mad about it when I go to check.

OH and another thing, I'm on gen 2 of a legacy now and there are barely any children/teens in my town now. I put the teen lot trait to try and find kids to hang out with, and all I see are goddamn elders walking by. I get that the population has a limit but there has to be a way to fix this. Has anyone else noticed this?

Alright I'm done for now. Sorry for the disjointed post. I mentioned that I only have the BG and I know that downloading the EPs for free with the links mentioned earlier would 'help' the boredom.

There is a sim save floating around by a YTer called simsiesave. She overhauled every single neighborhood from the sims to the houses. No CC, just much more functional and nicely decorated houses and families with premade backstories that you can play with. I highly recommend it. I use that as a base for any new sims save I'm starting.

Also if you haven't, you should definitely get MC Command Center (mod). Gives you a lot of randomizing tools which can help craft stories. You can fully tweak the settings which include things like random townie marriages, children, what sex the marriages can be, what specs the kids can have, abduction frequency, etc etc etc. A lot. Since Sims 4 is really really bad about not having story progression, eventually all your town residents will have died out and if you have City Living you will have 200 homeless Asian sims that are mostly single parents… this mod fixes that by creating families and aging them properly, moving them into available housing, etc.

I usually get bored of this one after a few days, but I think that save file can really help as it especially is the dull neighbourhood & pre-made Sims that annoy me.

That being said, I really am ready for TS5. I feel like TS4 was bad from the beginning and can’t be saved, even with popular expansions like Seasons being here now. It simply lacks the soul of the franchise and was poorly executed from the beginning. I just want them to move on now and release a better game. The idea still is so amazing, it’s just the game itself that sucks.
