Life’s good at the new house. Except for Grumpy Tyler’s stupid pranks. Every now and then, Lindsey comes over to check on her boys Tyler. “Are you doing your- DARRIN, IS HE DOING HIS HOMEWORK?!”

Happy Snowflake Day!

My only question is: WHY?

I don’t really love The Sims 4 for now, but I do like many features. Now I’m kind of afraid to load up The Sims 3 even though I love it. I don’t know why.

Do you guys remember SIMS 3? LOL

Lindsey and Trevor aged up and grumpy Tyler is moving next door with Darrin “so baby Cody can have his own bedroom”. Yeah, right.

First Impressions & Observations Part 4:

- Conversations and social interactions in general are really smooth and organic so far.
- You can easily tell that the “far away” landscape and sky are “painted on” backdrops, which sometimes kind of “ruins the magic” for me. It still looks pretty though.
- I desperately need a no fade camera mod.
- In the middle of a conversation, my Sim just walked away, then came back and resumed talking. It’s the second time I see this.
- Random strangers sitting down at your table or joining the conversation… they went too far with that. Especially when you’re on a date.

LOL @ people taking the shittiest possible TS3 screenshot, putting it next to a nice TS4 one and being like “TS4 looks SO much better than TS3”.

If you think it does, that’s fine, obviously, but give me a break.

Reblog to add: Now that I’ve had my coffee, I realise that may come across the wrong way. Sorry about the extra snark! This has nothing to do with anyone’s screenshot taking abilities. I do agree to some extent that some things look better in TS4. But if you’re going to compare screenshots, you’ll need to put the same effort in each of them. You’ll need to compare nice TS4 shots with nice TS3 ones, not with “pretty random, not really trying ones” (at least in my opinion).

First Impressions & Observations Part 3:

- In my opinion, they need to tone down the semi-dramatic music + abrupt mood change everytime a Sim experiences something different than pure bliss… My sim just went from “Happy” to “Very Uncomfortable” to “Flirty” by using the toilet.
- Relationships are more difficult.
- Multi-Tasking is nice!

First Impressions & Observations Part 2:

- There’s actually a nice amount of decent looking build/buy stuff.
- The windows and doors are really nice and detailed.
- Not loving the super dark indoor lighting, I hope there’s a way to fix that.
- I don’t like the texture/colors of some of the objects.
- Sims move faster which is awesome.
- I think their moods change a bit too fast.
- Again, the different neighborhoods are gorgeous!

First Impressions & Observations Part 1:

- It’s really pretty and vibrant! I’m loving the “depth of field” effect.
- The gameplay is SO smooth!
- Not a big fan of the blue-ish lighting.
- Some of the tree textures are really low-res. IDK how I feel about that.
- I wish there was a way to get rid of all the purple-ish trees. 
- It kind of bugs me that most of the buildings you can see are just props.
- I love that sims look good in any outdoor lighting (unlike TS3).

I got Lindsey the Lifetime Reward genie lamp and wished for money, so they bought Darrin a cute house.

Another boy! His name is Cody. He’s a Artistic and a Slob.
Grumpy Tyler is like: YAAAAY. Whatever.
