December 11, 2019

hey folks how’s it going this is Iron Seagull here back, with another Sims Info and Thoughts video. So things have been pretty
slow with Sims news lately since Discover University is pretty recent, so that’s
why there’s been more mod-related videos recently and other stuff. I was actually
just editing a retrospective on all the worlds that we got for The Sims 4 in
2019, but then SimGuruFrost posted this tweet saying hey simmers Maxis
monthly comes December 16th at 11 a.m. Pacific time on
with hosts SimGuruNinja and SimGuruDuke! Join us for an updates on The Sims
Mobile and The Sims FreePlay with SimGuruMegz and SimsTV, community stuff
pack vote #2, and our last big announcement for 2019…eye emoji *explosion noise* mindblown emoji…okay wow, seems like he is really hyping up that last bit right
there. I’m guessing the big announcement is still something related to The Sims 4
even though they are including the mobile games in there, but the mobile
games are both being taken care of by fire monkeys and they kind of do their
own thing with the sims TV thing now so I have a little bit surprised that it is
on Maxis Monthly this month, but yeah I still think it is probably going to be a
Sims 4-related thing at the end and I don’t know I feel like it is something
bigger than more holiday content because I do find it a little odd that they gave
us a little bit with the Discover University patch and it was just a few
items though they were good ones in my opinion but it was still kind of weird
to me that they didn’t put anything related to build by so I figured okay
maybe in December we’ll get a bit more but I think it is going to be something
else maybe The Sims 4 on console will finally get the gallery? Or maybe they’re
going to already announce something big they’ll do for next year because
even though the 20th anniversary of the Sims franchise is not until February
maybe it could still be something really big that they want to give more lead-in
to I’m not sure if they would announce this sort of thing this far in advance
but next year is my last hope for the original version of the sins and its
expansion packs to be remade so that they can be played on origin and at
hopefully higher resolutions than 1024 by 768 with such a big milestone around
the corner I think it would be the perfect time to re-release the Sam so
that can be played more easily on modern systems
it still feels crazy to me to think that we’ve come so far to the point that
there are simmers who currently play the sins who have never played the original
version and some of who weren’t even alive when the first base game came out
just wow I can feel myself getting older just by saying that I think it is far
more likely that they are going to announce some sort of free content that
is going to be coming to the sims for this month
SimGuruFrost has confirmed once again that they do not announce new paid DLC
on Maxis Monthly, so don’t expect any sort of announcement for a stuff packed
game pack or expansion pack if this is supposed to be some sort of mind-blowing
announcement as that emoji hints at then maybe this is it maybe this is finally
the time for either improved babies or cars that would be pretty cool
especially if the holidays around the corners it’s like a final holiday gift
to all of us though at the moment I don’t need any huge features I just want
a lot of bug fixes because I’ve been running into a lot of bugs these days
whenever I play and yeah it just really sucks I hope they take more time to fix
a lot of bugs especially since I’m not expecting and you packed for a few
months at least unless they do manage to put out something for the census 20th
anniversary but moving on to the controversial
mutti stuff pack it was also mentioned that is going to be featured in the
Maxis monthly so the art style boat is supposed to start on December 23rd and
lasts until January 3rd so I’m guessing they are going to reveal
the art styles that we can vote on during this voting process so I’m
looking forward to seeing what will happen since knitting is supposed to be
the gameplay focus on the pack hopefully the art style will be something cosy
whatever it is that ends up winning and that wraps up another Sims info thoughts
video so feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comment section below
what do you think is gonna happen on this Maxis Monthly and be sure to
subscribe if you want to keep up with my latest content from the sims sock the
Hedgehog and more so I will talk to you all later and have a great day!
Thanks for watching!

    its todally gallery uptade

  • Reply Autobot Simmer December 10, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    Either they'll be announcing plans for the first quarter of 2020 or it's free items and they're making the news bigger than it needs to be but I see someone saying gallery update. I guess that's big news to some.

    I wanna see this world retrospective

  • Reply Victoria White December 10, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    Not related to TS4 but TS1:
    Is anyone else out here that always thinks about that cheap, big blue dining table whenever they think of the older games?
    I was very young when I played it so I don't remember much, but I do remember that stupid blue table that I always used because it was cheap even though I hated it. Like for me, that table is THE sims 1.

    I found it remade for TS4. Couldn't not download it, and now I love it because it reminds me of TS1 (and even TS2) and the good old days of my childhood, lol.

  • Reply shadybrain3424 December 10, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    i would love an update for old sims games to be playable for modern systems. sims 2 and sims 3 are a good goto inbetween sims 4 packs and expacs.

  • Reply Han J December 10, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    I hope improved babies. There’ll no doubt be a babies stuff pack to follow it early next year if that was the case

  • Reply Scott Stamp December 10, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    I want a legacy stuff pack with remastered items from the sims 1. Maybe even a 32-bit costume turning you into an TS1 sim?

    Haven’t I said this before?

  • Reply Keith Davidson December 10, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    I'm loving having bikes in the game. Kids need them too.

  • Reply Mary Studios December 10, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    I agree with the bugs.

  • Reply Romarine December 10, 2019 at 10:20 pm

    I prefer to keep my expectations low, I feel like every time they hyped a « big announcement » it has been rather underwhelming. But hope to be proven wrong obviously 🙂 .

  • Reply I dunno December 10, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    Lol at this point just get the cars over with, maxis because I hate how everyone is constantly asking for them lol. I mean an animation and driving out of a garage would be cool, but most of the lots don't have driveways (even if you make one, it just ends at the grass or sidewalk and not even hitting the road) so putting a car on those lots would make it look stupid. Hopefully it makes sense haha.
    Though I totally agree on improved babies ? we need em!

  • Reply Lucy Davies December 10, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    ahh i grew up with the sims 2 so i got a really soft spot for it, i really like the sims 3 and 4 but at less for me sims 2 will always be my favorite

  • Reply Nikkö Alexander December 10, 2019 at 10:36 pm

    The big announcement is likely plans for first quarter or a gallery update, I honestly can't see it being much else. As much as I wish it was a baby update, I know EA well enough to know that they won't update the babies because it requires them to make new animations which they rarely do.

  • Reply Danielle Brown December 10, 2019 at 10:41 pm

    UPDATED BABIES!!!!!!!! Please!!!!!

  • Reply K. Sa December 10, 2019 at 10:41 pm

    I’ve had a bug with the cameras and photo studios. Once you enter into it I can’t reposition the camera! Has anyone else encountered this?

    Gallery on console? Ha! best joke ever Iron Seagull and if it really happens I'm gonna toss my cookies ?

    Please info on Sims 5 !

  • Reply GeminieCricket December 10, 2019 at 11:13 pm

    Please fix it so we can play Sims 1 !

  • Reply Matthew :D December 10, 2019 at 11:21 pm

    Please be babies or create a world! Ik it’s not but still

  • Reply Matthew :D December 10, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    I wish they would give us snow depth and keep the old flat snow on the legacy addition! It makes sense since we have 64 bit now so it definitely will run it

  • Reply Rachael Susanna December 10, 2019 at 11:29 pm

    I really hope the big announcement is a traits overhaul

  • Reply Meridith Gurtowsky December 10, 2019 at 11:33 pm

    If Duke is going to be there, it must be something huge. He usually doesn't appear it's something really huge.

  • Reply Plazy ._. December 10, 2019 at 11:37 pm

    I'm kind of tired of DLC because I've noticed a good portion is just retextured stuff. For example the windows for Cats and Dogs and I think it's Get Together? I don't remember the second one but the windows are EXACTLY the same except one set has like a border at the bottom.

  • Reply Spidergirl79 December 10, 2019 at 11:38 pm

    Okay how old were you when TS1 came out because you look really young! I was 19… ?

  • Reply George_Sims01 December 11, 2019 at 12:08 am

    I mean you say that about some simmers who were born after sims 1 came out and have never played it but I was born 15 days after the sims 2 came out and I’ve still managed to play all 4 main games so there really isn’t any excuses ?

  • Reply ClearaMorph December 11, 2019 at 12:14 am

    Booties for babies! Oh, maybe they will put gender-neutral pronouns in at last, or more CAS options, namely an intersex option. That would be wonderful! Not only did I find a mod that allows you to chose both can be pregnant as well as be impregnated. I also finally found this old code that still works so I could give Morgyn Ember the breast that they deserve because I see Morgyn as an intersex person/Sim.

  • Reply PurpleGhost December 11, 2019 at 12:52 am

    Hm, while I suspect it's a gallery update (which is good for console players at least) I wonder if the big announcement could be something as cool as create a world. Unlike so many things, I thought they confirmed it wasn't off the table (maybe I'm misremembering?) That'd be pretty damn rad!
    Of course, for gameplay purposes I'd be more excited about updated babies— but just creating beautiful worlds was one of my fave things in sims 3 so that's second on my wishlist. 😀

    I want sims to be able to dance together like ballroom dance not just both dancing next to each other

  • Reply Herbert Hendrick December 11, 2019 at 1:00 am

    Perhaps announcement will be Generations coming in the New year…. Or…. Sims 4 will now be available/converted onto Steam platform…

  • Reply Heather X December 11, 2019 at 1:36 am

    Omg getting sims 1 on origin would be AMAZING and omg I’m old. ?

    Will you post this on youtube after? I have a meeting that day and won't be able to watch

  • Reply Jess Anderson December 11, 2019 at 3:15 am

    yes an update for a bug fixes be nice. there is so many on console that need to be fixed like when the remote begins to die the game goes crazy.

    Haha. I have watched my elder sibling play Sims 1. But I am a first-time player. And I start on Sims 4.

  • Reply Sea December 11, 2019 at 3:37 am

    But why would they patch improved babies and cars this late in the game? Why did they wait so long? I am generally asking here.

  • Reply PaganSimmer December 11, 2019 at 3:38 am

    It's probably new additions for the free Holiday pack.

  • Reply SilverHairedGirl December 11, 2019 at 4:07 am

    T-trait overhaul? Fear emotion? Burglars? Revamped CAS?
    Honestly, not getting my hopes up. I’ve played this game too many times haha ?

    It’s probably gonna be small and unnecessary… they get too hyped over dumb shiiiiit

    I really hope for colorwheel, cars or better babies ? ?

  • Reply F Lee December 11, 2019 at 12:56 pm

    I don't get why people keep clamoring for "cars". We don't have an open world so where the heck are you going to drive them to????? We have car decorations to place in your driveways…I don't understand why the subject keeps coming up.

  • Reply Eline ! December 11, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    Honestly we need so much.
    -more aspirations, especially for kids
    -more things to do with traits
    -something with babies
    -a LOT more

  • Reply MurvenJG December 11, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    I would really appreciate it if they added an arrow or some sort of UI to the calendar that allows us to flip through the weather on all the worlds because I’m tired of playing an event in a world I don’t live in just to find that there’s currently a thunderstorm ?
