The official website of The Sims published a new blog about why there aren’t pools and toddlers in The Sims 4 base game. They are also talking about the free Create-a-Sim Demo coming out this summer!
Who can play the Create-a-Sim Demo?
They will send an early trial experience for a limited number of fans first before they roll out the demo for everyone to play. If you create a Sim with the Create-a-Sim Demo, you will be able to upload it to the Gallery and play with your Sim when The Sims 4 comes out.
Decisions where made while making The Sims 4 base game to make if feel more personal to the players:
“So, rather than include toddlers, we chose to go deeper on the features that make Sims come alive: meaningful and often amusing emotions; more believable motion and interactions; more tools in Create A Sim, and more realistic (and sometimes weird!) Sim behavior.”
“Instead of pools, we chose to develop key new features in Build Mode: direct manipulation, building a house room-by-room and being able to exchange your custom rooms easily, to make the immediate environment even more relatable and interactive for your Sim.”
