Today is the day when Sims 4 gets released in the US (and many other countries, but not here in EU yet...). I hope you are looking forward to the game, even with it's differences from TS3 and TS2.

I hope you enjoy your game!

I love it, I may be the only one XD but I do, stuff is missing but eh I trust the community to fix the errors it can and EA to eventually fix the ones the community can't fix XD mostly ^_^ and even if nothing does I love it it's funny

It's very different...Gah, no emo boy hairstyles, hair mesh creators, I can't wait to see those so I can make my Zexion again! Games fun, I love the house building. It doesn't lag as much as any of my other sims games either~

As I predicted: A stable game that doesn't lag so much. I knew there would be things people would like about it.

I have a touch screen computer with Windows 8.1 and had a problem of the screen whirling when I tried to detail a new sim, etc, in CAS, or even move an object in build mode. Worse, the mouse pointer was non-existent! I could only use the touch screen, which in game is very inefficient. I figured a few of you with late model computers might be having the same issue. My game in build/CAS, and Live runs fine now--here is the fix:

While the game is loading (all the funny animations, etc.) tap the tilda in the upper right corner of your screen to open the menu. Tap on Game Options/Display. Change the setting from "Fullscreen" to either "Windowed" or "Windowed Fullscreen" That will restore the mouse pointer, and make building houses, creating characters, and navigating the game much easier.

Happy Simming, All!

I don't like it... it's more cartooney, less controls for creating sims....

Pretty much in love with this game so far. The build tools are pretty nice. The Sim customization is good too but they lack in clothes and hair (but I know they'll have tons of EP's to make up for it). All around it compares to the Sims 2 base game and Sims 3 base game nicely. The unlockables and actual look and atmosphere of the game reminds me of the Sims games for console which I love also. They also have the files all set up for modders.... soooo I can't wait to load this game up with stuff too!!!!

I agree it is more "cartooney," but the CAS is awesome. There are so many ways to pull and tug to make that perfect sim. Overall, I like the game, with the exception of the demonic noodle babies. o_o

Yeah, I bet we'll see even more amazing sims for download with that feature.

Hi all! I look forward to seeing you, our dear mad scientists, creating mods and new stuff. AND: A good guide for dummies.... I still don't figure out how to really take control of this monster. They say:" Intuitive", I, poor stupid person, would better say: "Big intuitive headache"....

Honestly, this game looks beautiful, with plenty of new interesting features: For example shiftable windows and possibility to resize objects. I think that after some time and practice I'll love it, but for now I am learning, learning...learning !

There is one thing that I really miss from Sims 3: Color wheel and patterns. The missing "create a style" tool is, on my eyes, a big step backwards. Hopefully the new features will compensate this lack.

Happy Sims 2, 3, 4 simming !

Amazing!

I grew up in a family that had all the expansions for The Sims 1 and bought TSO when it arrived. Fun times... I never played The Sims 2 though(or 3 for that matter)!!! Just got the entire collection a month or two ago. Have been loving it, decided tonight to finally spoil myself with mods and what do ya know, The Sims 4 is out....

Looks like I might have to buy a new game haha.

I have preordered the official prima guide and today Amazon sent me an email to let me know that the release of the guide was postponed til 23 september.

I don't know the exact reason why the guide would have been delayed.
But, it doesn't surprise me -- any guide released on launch day -- would most certainly need an updated version to be released later.
This would account for any mistakes, in printing (ie data does not match in-game data or vice versa) .. and allows them a few weeks to make
tweaks.
This has happended to me, I think, with oblivion and skyrim -- having certain pages with incorrect information.
And appraently the guide, for those games, were printed well be before launch -- and last minute changes were made to the game.

I've only played the create a sim demo, that origin has. I can't wait to get the game, hopefully by tomorrow! Excited to try this! It does look quite cartoony as I saw stated in a previous post, but I'm sure with the great modders here some of that may change, and I still think the style looks interesting :)

It may be cartoony, but it must have more exciting features!

By the way, for all the people who have played it, is it like a world where you can walk like in Sims 3, or is it like sims 2?

I personally don't like The Sims 4...
It haves no Open Worlds...

I am one of those who didn't like TS3 and still happily plays TS2. I'll wait some time before I'll buy it, I want to know what people think of it ;)

Hi all, the prima guide was realeased. I received today early a new email from Amazon: The book was shipped. I appreciate having such a guide for a new Sims game, because it's easy to read while playing, unlike a digital guide.
Have a nice day.

I bought the SIms 4, it is a lot different then SIms 3 but it has a lot of advances in game play, It will take a while for me to adjust to the new style. I agree with "it needs a open world" I will miss that from sims3. I also can't wait for some "interesting mods" to come out, you all here are awesome in there creation. Getting the game guide, well I probably will get it (lord knows I will find things I didn't know."

I wish it was an open world. Now there aren't toddlers, pools, or open worlds.
I still can't wait to play it.

Friend of mine bought it and he got bored really fast so he invited me to test it and I must say I don't like it. I miss the color wheel, the patterns, the open neighborhood, the toddlers, the pools and I'm not very happy with the way the sims look. I still think that their hairs looks sort of "plastic". The screens loading in between are just annoying ! My friend ended up returning the game. We'll see what happens in the future with expansions, maybe it gets more interesting, at least for us. For now will stick with the Sims 3. Btw, just an after thought, but could it bee that the game has no toddlers and pools because EA couldn't nail the graphic details for it ?

I have a question please. Not sure if I am posting in the right place but does anyone know of an Elixir of Life for The Sims 4?
Many thanks :)

I bought it a week ago and so far, I like it. Like most Sims base games, it's extremely vanilla, but it has a lot of superb features. I like that you can adjust wall heights and I enjoy the emotions and the way they affect everything. However, I will agree that it gets boring fast. I have hope, though. I felt the same way about Sims 3. I didn't play it until two or three expansion packs came out and now I believe it's the best one they've made so far. So, we'll see. I'm sure pools, toddlers, etc. will make a come back in EPs. Given how much they added, I believe those were release date driven omissions and not forever. It also seems like they're really taking time with this one to make it really good; not just rehashing the same thing they gave us before. As for the lack of an open world, I don't really mind. It runs so smoothly and the loading screens are extremely fast. Overall, I'm hopeful that this will be even better than Sims 3.
