So what’s this page all about you wonder? I’ve tried to keep negative thoughts and complaints off this blog so far, successfully enough too, but the game (or rather the team behind it) has been stretching my patience paper thin. I figured it’s time to let off some steam. (҂⌣̀_⌣́)

• I’ve only been playing 1 household lately, the structure is the following at the moment: 2 male elders, 2 adult females, 2 teens and 2 children. Yesterday the culling kicked in and the adult females forgot they knew each other. Hello to relationship culling aka Simzheimer. I get it that Sims might forget acquaintances they maybe met once or twice, but a household member… really?!
• We have a fabulous kleptomaniac trait in the game which could be so much fun to play with, if only the Sims weren’t limited to stealing only some objects. I really wanted to play with a Sim who steals everything, starting with toilets and other bare necessities, but yet again someone decided to limit my creativity.
• One of my biggest disappointments with the game, no color wheel, no way to put together the color combination you’d like the most, no way to match things up. Be creative? More like good luck trying to be creative. Don’t get me wrong, the presets are perfectly fine for the first ten houses you build but after that it gets so painfully boring and repetitive you want to smash the screen with your head.
• Lighting in the game is also a huge annoyance for me, most things which are supposed to be white don’t look white, the houses can be crazy dark inside and curtains have been broken for some time now. While I love watching the lights through the windows it pisses me off that the shadows move mechanically while on lower settings they’re moving very nicely across the world. So why are better laptops and computers punished with poorer looking shadows?
• Pet peeves, or is it cats and dogs peeves? Seriously, an expansion pack for only 2 types of pets? I won’t rant about the price since I haven’t even bought the pack yet (waiting for it to be half off, then it might actually be worth buying) and some things are already bugging me. For one, cats/dogs count towards the 8 maximum household members. Thanks for ruining generational play. Two, no interface for cats/dogs to check on their age, sex, traits, skills, needs. So pets are now merely game decoration? I kinda have tons of that already, Sims can’t interact with most so I don’t bother using it. Three, so much was invested into Create A Pet so we can do what? Write on cats/dogs? It’s possible to have the color wheel there but not in the rest of the game. Lazy much? Four, the vet career is just recycled stuff from 2 other packs, pets can’t even die, no education needed to be a vet. Yes, tragic clown/serial killer/pets hating person, I’d absolutely love it if you treated my pets, doesn’t matter if you have no clue what you’re doing. And five, a new neighborhood with floating trees, the usual backdrops and bugs. Oh dear gurus, you have to stop spoiling us.
• Silence, silence, patch (minor unnecessary fixes), more silence… a free guitar? How come all I get is error this and error that. Great free gift really, very useful. Just a tip, if you want us to stop complaining then give us already what we’re asking for. Also, we’re paying for this game and it isn’t exactly cheap and all we get is lots of silence, crazy bugs and content no one ever asked for. I’m so glad you people aren’t manufacturing cars or planes, the world would be an empty place then.

More to come since this game has enough issues to keep me ranting for ages, also feel free to throw in your two cents. (ه’́⌣’̀ه )/
