Rumors Rumors and more Rumors....
So the leaks have started and the Sim world is swirling with rumors about what Sims 4 will be like. Apparently the official Sims magazine in Germany got a sneak preview and they have published some stuff that is sending people into a frenzy. Things like:
* No create a style
* Emotions are more important than needs and affect all aspects of sim behavior
*a romance meter and a friend meter that work independently of each other
*furnishings that have more effects on sim emotions and moods
*block style building with walls that can be pushed and pulled
* The ability to sculpt a sim by adjusting more body parts independently
* hats that can be added to any hairstyle
And on it goes. If you want to see some images, Gothican has posted some on a thread on the main forum and you can find them here: Sneak pix of Sims 4
No create a style? Whaaaaa....? I am going to keep an open mind. I recall all of the speculation that swirled around Sims 3 before it came out and how many of the things we thought ended up being wrong, or different, or just changed in some way. We simmers are a finicky bunch. I admit it. We know what we like and we don't particularly like change...so every new thing is generally regarded with skepticism and wariness. I am going to wait until the 20th when I get to see things for myself. I will post as much info and pix here as I am allowed by EA, so please check back next week.
In the mean time, I am repeating the same thing over and over "keep an open mind."
I build lots for people to use in the Sims. I have created hundreds of lots that have been downloaded by people all over the world. My work has been featured on the official Sims 3 site, several Sims 3 fan sites and in Game Informer magazine.I am a mom...a gamer...a book worm...a worrywart...a fan of architecture, interior design, and all things Grumpy Cat.
