I would love to be able to have seasons but they would definatly need to have more to it than just that.

I think seasons could flesh out an EP.

If they included a *lot* of stuff to do with the weather.

Like, whole other lives with it. Fishing is cool if you can be a fisherman or something. Neatbeans.

yay
actual weather :peace

To me, honestly: I don't think this is really seasons, as a constant thing. I think it would play more like the Vacation EP did for Sims 1. I think a lot of it will be decorative (terrain paint, snowdrifts, etc) and object-oriented, I don't think this is going to truly give us weather.

I'm having enough trouble keeping my game running in a dorm, I'd rather not have to deal with rain!

I hope they make more parts of the day because there are only day and night :/ even old games like zelda (1998) have afternoon and morning...
#58 Old 14th Oct 2006 at 12:52 PM
I love the idea of seasons, even more than pets. I do hope it contains falling snow, and rain or even leaves falling off trees. It would be an added bonus for all the movie and storytellers here. I love it!

OmG... Shush.

It's the weirdest thing. Poor Maxis. Gives you what you want and then you moan over it?


lmao I totally agree with you Faith. I dont mind being it only pets, it's what I wanted really. I wouldn't want Maxis to deliver a half-done job because Pets would be only a side-thing.

People have been moaning about weather over and over again and now this comes out and they're all "wtfblah"
Be happy with what you get people, Maxis is trying to do their very best.

As the person who said 'only seasons' before the post you're responding to, although I've said weather would be nice not once have I moaned about wanting it.

I'll be happy with what I'm happy with. I'm a paying customer, I'm not going to pay for crap and be happy with it. I'll leave that to the pigs that like to roll in their own crap and are happy with it.

edit: I WILL be happy with pets, because outside of a couple things that rubbed me the wrong way (the whole no pet bodyshop fiasco) I think it'll be a great expansion.
#62 Old 14th Oct 2006 at 4:15 PM
I never was crazy about pets, and never stated anywhere on this forum that I was. I played sims1 unleashed, and I have pets of my own, including wildcare for two baby squirrels.I'm always interested in new animation.
However, I also like the sound of seasons, and since it's new we really don't know anything except rumors.
So far as maxis is concerned, they don't need to be coddled. They make a fortune of these games, and which we all pay our hard earned dollars to.
Anyway people are entitled to their likes and dislikes about expaks.

Given that Maxis stated that Pets would never be released as just Pets, then they did it anyway, It may be that they meant for pets and Weather to come together as one Ep, but then had to break it in half to have the time needed to make it all work.

And that's what I care about most: I want it to work right!

Pets doesn't seem like much of an EP to me (if they had included farm animals...:P) but it's ok as long as it works. And the same goes for the weather, vacations would be nice, but I'll be happy if it just works right -- and isn't as mentioned simply terrain paints, etc.

I just want it all to work right -- right out of the box - I don't care if they do little bits (at $30 a pop) They NEED to take their time. The last Eps have been big PIBs they have been so buggy. Not any fun to play, down right disappointing and by the time the patch gets out, the EP is ....stale? Not fun. No more of that Please!

I disagree. A, because this, when asked, was the ep that Will Wright would most like to see in the game. And B, don't forget that there are twice as many storytellers that just use pictures than there are movie makers. Movies are just moving pictures anyway. And when you think about it, how many people make up stories for their Sims when they play, even if they don't turn it into a movie or post it as an album on the official site, I think storytelling is a HUGE part of the game.

And also, it doesn't have to be a movie-making ep, just an ep that added more features that would make for better movies. That's something everyone could benefit from--more animations (yay!), more interactions (yay!), more drama, more clothes, hairstyles, locations. All of this would make for great movies AND great gameplay. I don't make Sims 2 movies but I'd still love to see an ep like this just because it would enhance my gameplay dramatically.

@Faithlove: did you ever think that the people who begged for pets for years, aren't the same people who aren't excited about Pets the ep? I never asked for pets and I'm one of the "Pets....only? That's it? Kinda lame..." Frankly, I would have preferred if they had given us Unleashed 2 because Unleashed had more than Pets does. But then again, I don't care for customizing my own puggle with yellow polka dots and green ears so it would have been nice to see other things included in the ep.

And considering that all we know about Seasons is a picture with a paragraph in Dutch that has been loosely translated into English, it's too early to tell just what will be included. Though as the paragraph alluded to pool games and gardening, I'm a happy camper so far.

I'm pretty sure that Snooty (that's what he's called on the snootysims forums) is male.

I agree with, well, everything. If they needed to break pets and weather up into two so both work great, I have no problem. I'd guess that that's what they did, anyway, simply because we are hearing about Seasons from the Pet case, and when was the last time we heard about the next EP from the newest EP's case?

Althought, I'm glad we have some modders that find and fix problems much much faster then Maxis does. :D

If you sims rake up leaves, and don't pile them into a trash bag, there's a chance they'll mutate into the Giant Pile of Leaves monster! It'll eat random passing sims! But don't worry about your unsuspecting child becoming dinner; the GPoL monster loves to play with kids!


...seriously, I have no clue.

they can make a 'movie maker' expansion - I won't pay for it.

I won't spend my money on something that's centered around weather, either.

My guess would be the Yeti (as the "supernatural" creature).

Everyone has an ep idea that they "won't waste their money on". That's to be expected, you can't please everyone, all you can do is try. Weather being the #2 most requested feature, at least based on the ranting on the official bbs, seems like a slam dunk to me.

Hmm, intelligent, I think maybe on some faraway planet where the highest thinking organisms are single-celled parasites, it could be considered so.

But it is the largest fanbase and the one that the gamemakers probably read the most. Let's just hope they take into account the average age on the BBS so we don't see a Sims 2: High School Musical.
