Maxis also explains why The Sims 4 won’t come with toddlers or pools.
Hey everyone, Steven here from The Trend Guys and I’m bringing you one of the hottest video gaming trends of today.[youtube id=”IdrrTFiyphg” width=”600″ height=”350″]
The Sims 4 is coming soon, and I’ve heard all about it from my sister, who is an avid fan of the franchise. So, she’s going to be pretty pumped to find out that a demo is coming out in the not-too-distant future.
Unfortunately, she, just like many others, will be very disappointed in the fact that The Sims 4 won’t come with toddlers or swimming pools.
Maxis knows that they’ve disappointed some fans with this news, so they decided to offer up an explanation.
The fact is, we owe you a clearer explanation for why pools and toddlers will not be in The Sims 4 at launch. It begins with new technology and systems that we built for this new base game for The Sims – a new AI system, new animation system, new audio positioning tools, new locomotion logic, new routing intelligence and much more are all entirely new in this game.
So the bottom line is that when we sat down and looked at everything we wanted to do for this game, all the new tech we wanted to build into it, the fact was that there would be trade-offs, and these would disappoint some of our fans. Hard pill to swallow, believe me, but delivering on the vision set out for The Sims 4 required focus. – Executive Producer, Rachel Franklin
Customization seems to be the goal that Maxis is shooting for with The Sims 4. There will be seven unique walk styles, 320 emotion animations and there will be more than 600 reactions to objects in the game.
Obviously, some people are a bit concerned about the changes Maxis is making with the game. Some are wondering if these changes are worth sacrificing toddlers and swimming pools from the game.
In order to alleviate concerns, Maxis is going to release a Create-A-Sim demo at some point later this summer. That way, fans of the series will be able to try out some of the new changes. Obviously, Maxis hopes that fans will see the benefits of these changes and that the good outweighs the bad.
