My kikyo pic did well so maybe an inuyasha pic will too XD the colorings pretty bad imo but I’ll blame that on the fact that I make these on an iPad lol…also not exactly how this scene went but I just wanted to draw mistress centipedes legs for some reason haha
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!
“Had a bit of a revelation today,” Molly said, interrupting Sherlock’s train of thought as he gazed through the lenses of the microscope.
“I kept wondering and wondering…why I can’t manage to let you go,” she stated calmly, which naturally ended his interest in the sample he’d been studying and turned his stunned gaze to her instead.
“It’s awfully simple once I really thought about it; everything we’ve been through over the years and why my heart keeps coming back to you…over and over and over again,” she explained, her expression noticeably serene and strong.
Sherlock’s heart pounded, because in some way or another he could see what was coming and it frightened him a little to know that his world was about to be turned upside down. She must have seen that, because Molly gave him a smile of affection and understanding as she gently spoke the words of truth that Sherlock anticipated before they left her lips.
