89 Features Missing from The Sims 4

sims4news:

Thank you to Bflury on TS3 Forums for organizing this list! I fixed a lot of spelling/grammar/writing issues for you guys…enjoy!

Everything below has been 100% confirmed, excluding the final category.

This is a list of features that were COMPLETELY CUT or REDUCED from previous iterations of The Sims. It DOES NOT include missing expansion pack content that should be base by now (i.e. Weather) or new features promised for Sims 4 that were later cut (i.e. Woohoo Skill).

Lastly, it is important to understand that much of this content will NEVER be in The Sims 4. Things like Create a Style are not compatible with the game engine, and thus cannot be added in future updates or expansions.

MAJOR MISSING FEATURES THAT WERE IN TS3:

  • No create a style (CAST) - NOT possible in future expansions (x) 
  • No modifications to world/public spaces - The park in the demo is a mix of a community lot and public space (x1) (x2) 
  • No “normal” careers - Law enforcementMedicalBusiness, etc. were removed (x)
  • No open world - You must incur a loading screen between each active lot; each neighborhood has 1-5 lots total (x1) (x2) 
  • No pools (x) 
  • No terrain tools other than paint; everything is perfectly flat (x) 
  • No story progression - Sims in the neighborhood age, but do not have children, get jobs, move, get married…etc. without player intervention (x) 
  • No toddlers (x)
  • No way to create/place new lots - And you only have 2 empty ones at the start of the game!
  • No Mac version of the game at release

I know this is not the right channel to ask this, but I can't think of any other... I've been a fan of ''itswalky/shortpacked'' for a handful of years now. A few months ago you posted a comic which had 4 virtually-identical panels with a single line of dialogue ( id=2074). My natural response was to comment "You can do better than this Willis, lazy comic is lazy", which got me auto-banned. Do you think that's even remotely fair? Wasn't it a little bit disproportionate? :/

itswalky:

No, that’s not disproportionate.  That was you being an asshole.  Why would I want someone around who tells me I’m lazy whenever my free comic isn’t up to their particular standards?  I have every right to keep my own website free of toxic attitudes towards myself as a human being.  

I want to high five David so hard right now.

Hey, big fan of your work. What do you think are the 5 biggest problems of the industry?

benito-cereno:

Oh man, whoof. I don’t know that these are definitely the biggest, but they are big ones. Just off the top of my head:

1) learning the wrong lessons from success

2) worrying about the bottom line right now instead of the future

3) a blind adherence to tradition/regressive storytelling

4) too many white dudes making comics/too many white dudes starring in comics

5) distribution

What an amazingly accurate list.

The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.
