Well, well, well. I have not bought the Sims 4 yet, but only characters from Pleasantview / Sunset Valley have been included in the “alternate universes” of Willow Creek (Goth) and Oasis Springs (Lothario, Caliente, Landgraab). I’m not surprised at the developer’s choices of “returning” premades, as these are the most popular with the mainstream fans.
But I would be happier if they had included the Curiouses and/or Specters in the DESERT town of Oasis Springs, and absolutely over the moon if the Montys and/or Capps made any appearance at all.
Looks like I may have to create my favorite “premade” characters if I want them in my Sims 4 town. Or download them, if other fans make them available (hint, hint). Who knows, if I’m comfortable enough with Sims 4 filming, Sims 4 incarnations of Bianca Monty & friends may make an appearance in STM too.
With the pre-release Sims 4 Demo, I only had the time to create one sim — and I’m not very satisfied with the clothes recoloring system, hairstyles and facial hair selections. For the Sims 3, I waited till the 9th EP (!!!) — University Life — to get the correct long beard for me and my Racing Men. I hope I don’t have to wait too many EPs for the right elements to create characters to my satisfaction.
Will there be cars / motorcycles in the Sims 4 for us to race with? I like the way we open car doors in Sims 2, and the way cars move along the streets in Sims 3. My Racing Men & I have gone many laps around most Sims 3 main neighborhoods, alongside the exotic locales in S3 World Adventures and (storywise only) S2 Bon Voyage.
I am planning to complete STM 2.05(B) before I officially buy Sims 4. Time hasn’t been on my side 😦 , but production has progressed since my last post 🙂
