We’re finally living in an era when we get to know that something fun and free is coming to The Sims 4 Base Game. SimGuruKate’s latest announcement that October’s going to bring fun free stuff to The Sims 4 left plenty of room for speculation on what the next update could be.
Considering that The Sims 4 is great but still has plenty of room for improvement we asked the community on Twitter about what they’re hoping that The Sims 4’s next update will bring. Simmers had a lot to say about what they want to see in The Sims 4 added for free, but considering that there’s been plenty of replies asking for content that’s been treated as “premium” in the past (Witches, Mermaids, Farming etc) we’ve sorted through the replies asking for more simple stuff that the Base Game is currently missing. Here’s what they said:
More hair colors, more makeup options, nail color, bunk beds, zodiacs,cops and firefighters, burglars, oh and please bring back the laptops and random seeds laying around the map. Some new careers too! As well, exercising in front of tv! Lol okay I should stop.. oh and cars.

Cemetaries, perhaps? It would fit the time of year.

There is a lot of things i want to see, mostly things from past games. I would like to have something to make Sims more individual (zodiac signs, favorite color, favorite food, something like that) and also some new gameplay features (cars, new skills, etc.).

More relationships in CAS: Boyfriend/girlfriend, aunt/uncle, etc…

Definitely more traits would be nice. Also, more careers would be great too. They don’t have to be in “Get to Work” style, but I do like the Work from home option. More careers like that please!

Yes! Not only it gives the info when the sim was born but also kinda determines their personality. Kinda wish though those weren’t the regular ones like Virgo or Leo but the Sims version 😊

I would like more plants and let all of them grow at the same time again and be able to take care up them like before. Strollers also! MORE Toddlers hair styles that are like how they really are.

Disabilities. It would be so fun and would expand the sims world.

Homeschooling! I’ve been asking for this for a while! Also the option in CAS to decide which gender(s) your Sim is attracted to!

THE TURN ONS AND TURN OFFS FROM TS2!!!!

Fully expecting more holiday-themed stuff. I know, I know, we just got Seasons, but in the spirit of Diwali last year, maybe other items from other traditions across the world?

Swimming in the ocean please!
Doesn’t have to be deep sea diving, just swimming like in a pool but instead it’s in the lakes and oceans in all the worlds!

I’d like to see a throwback patch with items from the past sims games like the vibrating heart bed and things like that
