THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I think we should make a topic that lists every annoyance and gameplay problem so that -if- Pescado and other modders here want to comb through what needs to be stomped like a bug, they have a handy list of varied problems and shit.

I will comb through more tonight and start a list of problems. Anyone have issues they found?

  • An option to turn off the tutorial tips would be nice, indeed.
  • A curbstomp to musical chairs, i.e. the Sims switching chairs repeatedly in order to be closer to each other when talking. Close is good, switching chairs eight times only to end up where you started is ridiculous.
  • Better control of townie population: I am seeing the town being filled up with a lot of elders, but that's not going to help me much when I need to find a potential wife for a sim. Randomization would be nice -- let's see some members of all age groups move in as family units, maybe.
  • Speaking of townie control, I would also like to not have very overweight being the apparent default for townies spawning. I know it's probably realistic in some parts of Murrica, but...
  • An easy way in-game to flag clothing as inappropriate for random spawning on townies (if that already exists, I can't find it at least). I really don't need to see the sombrero of shame or wassitscalled on every other townie.
  • An option to turn off the sparkles on foods and flowers would be nice. That really annoys some players, I've noticed.
  • Less queue-dropping. Get up at 3am to complain that you need to pee? No. Go pee, you idiot.
  • A food spoil mood. I understand that food rottage is no longer dependent on the fridge quality, but seriously, whatever happened to freezing food? I want to be able to cook for a few days ahead.
  • Cut down on gardening time. It can't take -all- day to weed and water eight plants.
  • Better choice of bathrooms. If I have two bathrooms you don't need to walk in on your kid every damn time he takes a bath, you perv.
  • No matter how energized my kid is when he goes to school, he never manages to meet the attend school while energized requirement for a higher grade.
  • Can't quite tell yet if this is required, but I bet it is: A mod to prevent sims from reading the same book over and over.
  • Dafuq? Get married to boyfriend, name does not change for either?
  • Upon death, inventory needs to be transferred to a living relative. Burning all remaining aspiration points on potions only to have them disappear into the urn kind of sucks.
  • Guy sees his dad and friend die, and grieves for two days. Wife is at work when mum and friend dies and thus does not grieve. Sense, there is little.
  • The coffee machine needs give a higher energy boost. At the moment it costs more energy to make and drink coffee than you gain from doing it.
  • Gardening is a pain in the backside. We really need a garden sprinkler or the like, so we can at least water a bunch of plants at one time. As it stands, the only way to keep gardening sane is to splice pretty much everything into one tree.
  • Socialising at work builds social need but does not introduce you to people. We seriously needs some kind of fix in this regard, particularly for the kids in school.
  • Excercise away and a female sim will get ripped and toned -- and stay fatter for every day. There has to be something wrong in the formula somewhere. Males stay thin -- and women get fat no matter what they do. A sixpack over a belly the size of a hippo looks very odd.

On the wishlist:

  • Normal careers. A mod along the lines of Nraas' career mod for Sims 3, that allows people to create custom careers. I don't want to be a rocket scientist or a space pirate, I want to be an accountant.
  • A mod to slow down time. I want longer days, longer nights. Too accustomed to playing with Nraas' time slow thing, days go past before I know what hit me!

That's it from me at the moment. Will edit to add if I notice other blatant infractions. On the whole though, less horribly broke from start than I feared.

a way to kick other sims out of conversations would be nice too.  trying to chat up a potential husband/wife at the bar and bam! 5 other sims suddenly invite themselves into the conversation! Suddenly flirting attempts previously well received are creating awkward conversations.  Less cockblocking!

  • The maid doesn't work correctly.  Sometimes they show up and sometimes they don't.
  • Last names, an option to automatically change last names when getting married.
  • I really miss family trees.
  • Some sort of reaction to your spouse/father/mother dying, even if you weren't there to witness it.
  • A way to lock a menu bar as up.  I hate having to click on the motive bar constantly.
  • A countdown to the exact time for a birth.
  • Risky woohoo.
  • The appliances break way too often.
  • A way to tone down the weight gain/muscle building.  I like the concept, but it seems really extreme right now.
  • Some of the bookshelves have slots, if a sim puts a book in the slot, it's not available when you click on the bookshelf to "read".  That is really dumb.
  • Access to someone's inventory, even if they are at work/school.
  • The speed keys for time break sometimes and you have to hit escape and come back to get them to work again
  • When it's time to go to work/school, GO.
  • Stop/limit the amount of drinks sims get from the fridge.
  • A way to easily transfer things to & from individual inventory, household inventory and fridge.  I seriously cannot figure out how to get fish out of my household inventory that got transferred there when a person died.
  • Stop children from laughing while they sleep.
  • A way to sort things in inventories/fridge (by name, time left, etc)
  • Can't set start time for parties.
  • Having to RE-unlock everything when you start a new game.  It should either always be unlocked or only have to unlock it one time.
  • Ability to set number of days per age.  I want old people to die faster.
  • Some way to distinguish teenagers from adults.

- The tutorial. 'Nuff said.
- The stupid jingles for everything. Emotion stings have already been nuked by a mod, but loading a lot also plays a really irritating sting.
- The maid barely wears a maid's uniform. Most of the time she wears generic clothing, though she randomly showed up in a more traditional maid's outfit with apron.
- As said above, the maid sometimes never shows up.
- We need a gardener NPC. My Sim's relatively small garden takes way too many hours every day to maintain. Weirdly I noticed a gardener Sim (with appropriate uniform) tending to the neighborhood allotments, so there's no reason why there couldn't be an identical NPC for hire.
- Every time you load the home lot, you are charged for the maid (she supposedly visits while you are out) even when there is absolutely nothing to be cleaned.
- When sims get married, the spouse doesn't move in nor do they change their last name. In fact, there is no way to change a Sim's name whatsoever.
- You can't plan a party in advance, like in The Sims 3. Once you set one up it begins immediately.
- Relationships no longer recognize step-family, like in The Sims 3. My Sim married Katrina Caliente, but apparently her daughters Nina and Dina aren't family to him (now there's an opening for a story...) Also half-siblings are considered full-blooded brothers/sisters for some inane reason.
- No biographies for Sims!
- You can't view any information about a Sim while they are at work or school!
- Random Sims cockblocking when my Sims are flirting with each other.
- Despite the allegedly improved AI, Sims will watch TV/play a game/learn a skill until they drop.
- My game crashes when travelling if the simulation speed is higher than 1.
- A skill journal to keep track of all the skill level unlocks would be great. I can't remember what special abilities they have earned.
- A Sim can't Change Appearance using a mirror if it's over a sink...
- What do you do with all those Frog terrariums? They take up a full tile each and can't be stacked.

Also, do any pirates know how to unlock the bonus content, or is that not possible at this stage?

My geek sim was sad because I didn't throw her a birthday party.  I never throw birthday parties for my sims - the last one I threw was years ago, in TS2, for Johnny Smith the last time I restarted Strangetown.  I only threw that party because it's unavoidable if you want to play the Smith family.

Can we have a stomp on that moodlet, I don't see why a geek sim (who doesn't know anyone outside her household anyway) should be sad because I ~didn't~ invite a ton of strangers around to help her celebrate her birthday.  It seems to me that not having strangers about is a reason to be happy.

Get rid of the white outlines on mouse over and being forced to walk like a gorilla when slightly tired.  (Found a mod for the first thing!)

I also agree there is a need for generating more random townies - townies seem skewed toward old and fat.

For people who want to build more than play - unlock all the build/buy career objects without having to play your sim to the top in every career.

Need Octagonal roofs

Daimon wants a mod to slow down time:
Read this at Nraas (don't shoot) there appears to be some time control built in:
Cheat Code:  (following is a swatch of the post there)
"clock._set_milliseconds_per_sim_second X where X is a number of milliseconds.
Setting it to 1,000 makes each sim minute take one real world minute, which seriously ridiculously unbalances the game, but still.
Keep in mind this isn't EA stealing a modder's ideas, the ability to set the clock rate was available in every game somewhere in the game files, it's just this time there's actual proper PC game console commands and this is one of them. It's probably available as a result of relativity.   Also I do not know what the default value is. Sim minutes are a tiny bit longer than real seconds this time."

First thing I did was turn off the tutorial using Origin but you have to exit the game to do it and cannot turn it back on on-the-fly for someone who wants it.  A possible issue here is that this method requires using Origin - which may not sit well with all players.

Apparently the idea is that you need to go out and collect stuff to sell in order to be able to save up funds to move. I managed, but it took three weeks before my sim couple was earning enough dough to pay the rent and start getting better stuff. Some adjustment may indeed be viable.

In order of importance:

1) Cut out universal time, and allow for rotational play (the good way). This could be done in several ways. One is to have a global save file where all the sim info for your played households is stored (relationships, etc.), and upon saving a household, only the info for the sims in that household would be changed, thus stopping the advancement of the other sims. This would allow you to have one save file for each household, and a global save for the stats that need to be retained. Good enough for me, I think.

2) The randomizer in CAS. Either the detailed mode needs to be included in the randomize options, or we need actual sliders/numbers to help adjust these details.

In the interest of not wasting my time, I have not played the game long enough to uncover any other travesties that might exist.

I can live with most parts of the game after one day of having it - mostly it is dropping his "old" S3 ways to handle things. That means: no I spent not much time with it yet, and did not try to get some sexy time so far.

But, what I yearn for is a way to get rid of this fucking origin crap client, the way awesomemod made it possible to leave the disc in the box.

Fix the "headlineeffects off" cheat. EAxis broke the damn thing. It hides the speech/thought bubbles fine but not the plumbs(even though it says it's supposed to hide the plumbs). It also hides things I need - like pop ups for Sim names, plant states, meal info and others.

No music in build/buy/CAS.

Teens can no longer live on their own; an elder or adult must be part of the household. You can't split the household to get rid of the elders/adults, and elders won't die if there are no other adults on the lot.

Family trees seem to be a thing of past for some reason, it's immediate household only, you don't seem to be able to see the previous generations

Make teens shorter, why do they suddenly need to be the same size as the adults

Normal careers

More available empty lots to build on

stop the appliances breaking once every few days and all at the same time

When they're sad, make it so that it doesn't take them 2 hours to eat a meal

A way to change the first name once the sim is out there in the game

stop the Zzzz when they're asleep ... and for goodness sake stop them laughing in their sleep

Stop the singing in the shower, it's like a broken record, the same thing over and over and over again!

More realistic wages otherwise they will never afford the 300+ weekly bills, and that's just a small starter home with bare minimum cheap furniture

Get rid of ... being forced to walk like a gorilla when slightly tired. 

This, 100 times over!

...

Really? Is this what adults do? Do all the 30+ year olds I know actually leave at night in their busy schedules to go collect rocks and frogs? Am I living wrong?

I feel in the middle on bills. Every time they come now, I actually get sad because I know a huge chunk of money is going to be gone. In Sims 1, 2, and 3,  I literally never cared about bills. So, I think it's a step in the right direction.

----

- Definitely a method to turn off those tutorials. Sometimes they just stop for a good minute then they bombard me again.
- I also don't like how the pregnant sims give birth. Nor do I like how when they go into labor, they can go to sleep. My sim slept through labor. Powerful woman.
- This bothered me in the Sims 2 - when they do CERTAIN THINGS on their own and I direct them to do something else, they completely stop. Washing dishes? They stop, put the plate on the floor. Taking out the trash? Trash pile. But damn, if they're watching TV and I tell them to go pee, they'll just watch the damn television until I cancel it.
- A mod so when you hover it will tell you the age of the sim.
- Normal careers.
- Stop talking so damn much and eat your food. You have work. Seriously, they talk so much it takes them over an hour to eat half the time, unfinished plates everywhere.

This might be a bug you're experiencing, but just in case you misunderstood the objective, "energized" in this context doesn't refer to the energy motive.  The sim needs to be in the "energized" mood when they attend school.

I found that my Geek Sim was perfectly happy when I baked him a cake and made him blow out the candles; he was Happy about his "birthday party." So I don't think you have to go through the whole party thing.
