I’ve been playing The Sims 4 a bit lately.
Despite all the missing features, I like it more than The Sims 3. The Sims look better, the game runs waaay better (no lag, it loads very fast and everything is smooth) and it has potential to be very fun once the EPs come out.
I love the multitasking: The twins in the picture are chatting, working on their skills and, in the case of Anabelle, also eating. The little missions for the careers, the ambitions and even the parties are also very fun.
The interior lighting sucks a lot. These pictures were heavily edited so you could see what was going on. I know there’s a mod to improve it, but it doesn’t seem to be stable right now.
Actually, I am playing CC free. I do not feel the need to mod or add more clothing and hair options at the moment.
And the baby situation is still stupid. No toddlers and the way the babies age into kids is quite abrupt. My test family just had twins, and I aged them as soon as possible because there was no point in having infants in the house.
