thoughts on the pets ep? everyone is being so negative even though it's what they asked for lol EA are doing the best they can
Thoughts on the Actual EP
I’m actually really looking forward to it! I haven’t purchased a sims pack in a while because none of them have really interested me! But I’m definitely going to be buying this one! Pets has always been one of my favourite additions to sims games, I think they add a lot gameplay wise. I’m hoping that the addition of cats and dogs will make me actually want to play the game for a change. The new world also looks amazing, very unique and detailed from what I can tell! I’m really looking forward to being able to explore it. Some of the CAS and build items also look intriguing and I can’t wait to see what the cc creators of the community do with it! I also think the vet career and being able to build your own practice will be very fun!
I know there’s been some rumblings over there not being horses, smaller animals or birds and the fact that you won’t be able to control your pets. At first I was surprised to see that horses weren’t going to included within the pack but really, it makes sense. The Sims 4 isn’t open-world so where would you even ride your horse? Around the back yard? At the same time if we look at this EP from the perspective of EA these deductions also make sense. When The Sims 4 was in development one of the things that EA wanted was for it to be less bloated and PC intensive than it’s predecesor, The Sims 3. They wanted it to be able to run on lower end computers and laptops meaning it would be available for a wider auidience, meaning more money; so it makes sense for them to cut back. All in all the lack of horses doesn’t bother me personally, but I can see why it upsets others, and not being able to control the pets doesn’t bother me either, as long as the AI is somewhat sophisticated.
It also wouldn’t surprise me if pets such as birds, rodents and reptiles were added later through a stuff or game pack.
At the end of the day It’s clear to see why so many people, including myself, are so excited for this EP. It’s very reminiscent of the previous games! I really hope that it’s a success and that there aren’t too many disappointed faces on release day.
Thoughts on Negativity (it’s okay!) 🐱
The same thing happens every time a new pack is released or announced; the community gets all shaken up and tensions begin to rise. Let people have their opinions, if they’re excited, awesome! If they’re disappointed, that’s fine! As long as they’re not hurting anyone, it’s fine. But please don’t tell people that they can’t express their opinions and thoughts simply because you think it’s ‘negative.’
I love that so many people within this community remain so positive about The Sims 4 despite all it’s short comings, I love that people put complete faith in EA and are constantly giving them the benefit of the doubt. But at the end of the day it’s important to remember that EA is not a video game company, they’re a publically traded, profit making company. They have a legal responsibility to try to maximize profits for their stockholders and they will take any chance they can to create a profit (that includes releasing subpar dlc but keeping the high end price tag and if no one challenges them on it?? then they won’t change)
It sucks to say and I bet a lot of people don’t want to hear it but honestly, criticism and doubt are key in order for the video game industry as we know it to survive. If everyone constantly praised EA for releasing any old bit of half-assed content then the communities voices would never be heard and they’d just continue doing it. I could talk for hours about big publishers such as EA and how they’re effectively ruining the gaming industry, but I won’t, don’t worry! All I’m trying to say is it’s okay for people to be skeptical and as long as they’re not hurting anyone then their opinion is still valid!
I HAD A SIMBLR and then i stopped bc haha wowie this community is so fucking toxic and unappreciative. so what we don't have seasons, our pets can actually swim in pools, dress in more than just a collar, interact more with toddlers, and SO MUCH MORE that wasn't available in s3 (the game you're all preaching for being perfect). and why do we have this? they're taking their time and not popping out packs like no tomorrow (i.e. WA was out within the first 3 months of s3 release). just be happy, js
This is random but the best part about yuuri being the pov character for most of the show is that whenever the camera pans down viktor's body, it's 99% because yuuri is checking him out. Also, this show is gay, the flowers are gay, even the CAKE IS GAY SJXHJDBEJS I AM DYING BECAUSE OF YOI. thankyou.
I just feel really bad for the people who work on these packs; Imagine releasing something that you worked hard on for people to compare it to other packs from ts3 and complain about what we don't have. working with people like this as their consumers must be so fucking emotionally straining and put so much unnecessary pressure on them when all they're trying to do is their job. Instead of tearing them down, we should let them know that they're hard work isn't going to waste.
oh my GOD i can’t even begin to imagine it!!!!! like??? They’re people!!Real life people!! i feel like i need to make a twitter so i can send them positive things because they deserve it yknow
Modern Theonsa + Robb. "My sister and my best friend.... my sister and my best friend!"
I feel like robb finds out on the annual stark camping trip. Theon claimed to be sick during a group hike. Sansa isn’t particularly into hiking so she always stays behind. It’s not suspicious. But robb forgot his camera so he heads back and they’re fucking in his tent. Sansa’s excuse was that she doesn’t like getting all sweaty and gross but they were VERY sweaty and he found it VERY gross.
“The hell are you doing?” Keith grumbles out, body mid-push up. There’s a snicker behind him, too close to his ears, though Keith can’t really understand what would be so amusing about this. Then again, he’s not really sure why Lance is lying on him while he’s doing push ups either. Other than to be, of course, annoying.
“Nothing.” Lance finally says. Keith hears the grin in his voice, which only proves to irritate him a little more. ‘Nothing’ his ass. “Continue with what you’re doing, Mr. ‘I’m-Too-Good-For-Socialization’.”
Lance thinks he can get away with flirting with Keith if it’s in Spanish. Lance thinks if he says the words angrily enough no one will catch on to the ruse. Lance thinks his secret crush is safe. Lance, my friends, is very…very wrong.
“Huh.” Hunk leans back and takes an impressive chomp of Keith’s pastry, devouring half of it in one go. “I’ve got nothing. Though, I gotta say I’m surprised you two didn’t do anything for your anniversary.”
Keith knocks over his mug in a extremely rare display of clumsiness. “What?” he asks, horrified.
“Your anniversary, yesterday? I was going to cook you guys a nice dinner, but Lance said you were going out.” Hunk tosses the last corner of the pastry delicately into his mouth before peering closely at Keith’s pained expression. “Ohhhh,” he says in revelation. “I get it now. But, hey! At least we solved the mystery for why he’s mad at you.”
you're acting like the sims team pushes these packs out for free, as a gift, and that we should be gratefull. i personally really like the cats and dogs idea, but if other people don't then why can't they complain about it? how else will the sims team know what to do differently? we are the people that pay them hundreds of dollars, we have the right to give feedback. why do you think there's a forum that the simgurus go on?
alright well there’s a difference between criticism and down right bashing people for not doing what you wanted.
Since we are listing idols that give LGBT vibes: SHINee's Jonghyun. He is not straight. He literally has said he finds nothing a turn on when it comes to women. Nothing. Not one damn thing. Like, that is one second away from saying "Vaginas are not my style".
wehn di dmy shinee bias say that. why am i uniformed of my actual king saying this falfe. tbh, not to be ~that person~ but basically all of shinee give me lgbt vibes. like, i live for it. kings of the lgbt community. (i’m joking lol)
but um, fun fact!! (i been wanting to post this for a while, so i’ll just put it here):
Yes yes yes I approve the voltron&DGL crossover *two thumbs up* lolol still I'm curious, did u have different/alternative rules for the DGL characters in ur mind as u were drawing (Palo as space dad for example //kicked) ?? also cho(f) as Keith couldn't agree more
i do think palo could work as the black paladin as well - there is some overlap between cho (m) and palo in terms of their leadership abilities and general composure ….however, I wasn’t sure where that would leave cho (m) scoots him over to the galra side so i ended up putting palo as the yellow paladin instead :’) I also briefly considered cho (f) in the black paladin role, with cho (m) as red bc I thought it would be interesting to have cho (f) as the leader, but….ultimately decided against it. season 3′s development makes allowances for that now anyway :D
I considered all 3 girls for Allura’s role, but in the end I gave louisa the part of allura since i tend to stick louisa in princess roles….. LOL.
jae was the only one who was set as blue paladin from the start.
