I don't really know who Katy Perry is, I don't keep up with american teen culture; but the pack sure did look delicious...!
I don't miss cars, I liked the EL pack's focus on environmentalism, and I think cars are unnecessary in the game.
Horses got stuck everywhere in TS3, so I turned them off, but they were still there. I do not want that back. The lot trait and object version they've done in TS4 I think is a good middle ground; now I can choose where I'll have foxes, strays, bunnies etc, but the world is not overrun by them, and performance does not suffer.

I'd love to see pictures of the Willow Creek alterations.

Katy Perry is a pop singer, and has been so about a dozen years, I guess (I, personally, am not a fan, but she has many, most of whom are younger than I am) - but the Sims 3 Katy Perry's Sweet Treats pack was uh, not very well received.

I will say that she was a far more reasonable focus for a fame-oriented pack than Baby Ariel!

Yes, google is my confidant and tells me all the secrets. I've read so many angry posts about that pack, I just ignore them now, I like candy, and colour and that would have been enough for me. I heard about this Baby Ariel in TS4 (don't know who that is either haha), but I think she was one of the sims I deleted when I first started the save I play now, which I think may have been a good thing since she appearantly is immortal.

As a side note, I want to say that when I said Haters will Hate, I was not attempting to make this thread flammable. I know, and I believe all the regulars to this forum know, that there are those who come here just to disagree with anything that is negatively mentioned about TS4 and Maxis (and possibly EA as a whole) and/or any negative mention about how we play or what we do, or what we perceive about the game that is against their perception of the game's perfection (for example saying that festivals are not fun or that Bust The Dust is the sorriest addition ever produced). Hence, I was tongue-in-cheekly pre-apologizing to those whom I assumed would come to disagree with my post.

@Gargoyle Cat was right (him or her moderating notwithstanding). Maybe I shouldn't have done that since this Post was started with good intentions of positivity only. Had I got that boulder rolling down the hill ~ well . . .

Thank you for explaining. I do think there are a lot to say about EA and their politics of game producing; but I am playing the game for my entertainment, and just want to leasurely chat about it in all friendliness, and there is a lot of negativity about the sims' games online, and I just don't want to read that all the time, or deal with it; hence this thread. I like tongue-in-cheek cuteness though, whenever I say anything, it's with a cheeky smile.

Now let's see those pictures!

@andes, here's a pic of a past redo of Willow Creek. I tried to do an Asian themed world at that time - with a park full of rides in the middle.

Oh, wow, that's so elaborate, it looks really beautiful. How did you do the carousels?

The park rides came from a modder named Necrodog . At that time he had a website. Now most of his stuff can be found on Patreon.

Thanks, they are impressive. I never made the carousels in TS3, but I've admired others' creations of it. This is what I turned the park into in Willow Creek. It's a technical interactive museum (designated as such), with lots of scientist machinery to operate for the sims. I named it Nautilus after the submarine in Jules Verne's books.

I made ghosts to be roommates of my grave digger, resident of my 'grave yard' in Glimmerbrook. I've never really played with ghosts, more interested in just ordinary 'human' sims than occult states, but there are some spectacular deaths, and I can't resist a good scenario and set up. I made an alien Night Wraith, a plantsim eaten by the cowplant; Betelgeuse killed by beetles (ah haha), a moody poisoned teen (oh, so brutal); a spellcaster dead by overload; and a rodent disease succumbed big hamster!

I found most cheats with an easy search, except the Rabid Rodent Fever, but I got that to work so I'll post it here if anyone is interested:
traits.equip_trait trait_Ghost_Rodent_Disease
I dressed it in the hamster suit too pre death, since I've noticed that the ghost not always have it on.
This page had almost all cheats, and is very organised: https://space4games.com/en/games-en/sims-4-cheats/

I've been busy making sims for my main save, and mostly I just do them in CAS in a dedicated folder, then saving them to library and copy/paste the tray files into my main save folder's Tray folder; but I wanted to give my bishop the trait Influential Individual and test the Civil Designer career in gameplay at the same time.

I was surprised to find out that the reward trait Champion of the People, from the Civic Planner direction of it, is permanent, even when quitting the career; something I think I just assumed not to be the case. This is good to know, since it gives satisfaction points, something I use a lot of to make the sims have a more rounded personality. They have added a couple of more ways of getting those points with the Haunted House Residential, and the Scenarios too, which I like. A tip!
