AHHHHHHHHHH! We have gotten SO much news today. I made a whole separate video on the update that I'm going to post tomorrow (otherwise this video would be an hour long lol) but if you wanted to read the patch notes and see what came in the update today: forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/1006136/more-fixes-more-new-content-and-more-console#latestnews
I CANT WAIT BECAUSE THEY ARE COMING ON MY BIRTHDAY!
I made a reminder on calender on March 14th for the infant update BUT I MADE IT THE BIRTHBAY CAKE STICKER
@Brigid I'm soooo excited!!! I love the representation 🥺
Lilsimse I know you don't know much but what's happening with consle players for the sims 5 or you guess
@LilliethShadows I play on ps4 but with a keyboard and mouse
If we’re getting a generations expansion pack I really hope they fix the family tree so my sims recognize their distant relatives
You’re speaking to the choir
@Madij25 it’s confirmed a growing together pack which is basically generations
@Caitlin Wheeler omg yes
The underwear kit, shapewear and binders make me hope they add an underwear category so sims could "Wear" these under their clothes if desired.
@Jim Raynor we do accept ourselves, that's the thing. We accept that our body's don't match our brains.
@animal crossing nerd 🏳️🌈 I'm not the one who doesn't accept myself for who I am. you're the one who doesn't accept yourself for who you are and force everyone else to accept you for something you're not. kind of ironic huh 🤔
Okay but I love the breastfeeding element and the fact that you can pass the baby to another sim, AND THE INTERACTIONS WITH PETS !!!!
Ok that’s what I’m most excited for
What's killing me is the baby backpack having a NECK STRAP! lol I don't want my sims to strangle their babies.
I wish children can teach toddlers.
I loved that too, i know they said they added interactions between infants and all the other life stages, but I also hope that includes new interactions between other life stages.
I'm glad the medical wearables was added to base game and not turned into a pack or a kit. I'm hoping to see wheelchairs added to the Sims at some point!
yes, thank you! I've been a wheelchair user for almost my entire life and I have always wanted wheelchairs in the game. love seeing the disability representation!
@GardenOfEd They could probably do prosthetics without changing animations much if at all. Also maybe small casts.
I hope for other mobility aids as well! Canes, walkers, forearm crutches... I know they'd have to redo animations, but frankly? They have the money and resources to do it.
I work in childcare (specifically the one year old room) and oh my god the way they animated the kids crawling and wobbling moving and everything is so spot on, I was absolutely floored
also when they all started screaming at the party it was like a horrible flashback to when I first started at my job 😭😂
Now we really need pre-teens! That would be the icing on the cake. Cause I come across a lot of times where I don't want a kid or a teen, but I want a pre-teen.
Bro, most of the teens I’m around are short as hell
@Freddy Krueger teen is literally 13-19. thirTEEN to nineTEEN. nobody wants the only options to be kids, who look 11 max, and adult-sized teens.
@Freddy Krueger yeah but they look too much like adults and it goes kids, that look like 8 then to 16 yr olds?
@Hope Zwanziger true, true.
@Ev how’s it called the mod?
The thing I've got actually VERY excited about is that they FINALLY found a host who KNOWS HOW TO HOST. Like... I've felt her joy and excitement through the screen. I felt like she IS a simmer. Most of the time during livestreams I got bored to death because the gurus did not seem able to be the first people actually excited about the game. She's a keeper
@Anna Reed thanks, both of you! That's really good to know and so interesting - in Germany it's totally different because it's such a heavily gendered language, we have binary gendered terms for *everything* and used to only use the male ones as a standard (meant to include all genders) for practical reasons but studies showed that this use of language erased everyone but men from people's thinking so now we're trying to agree on another standard to include all genders and ofc it's a heavily heated debate... I wish we at least had a singular non-gendered pronoun like "they/them", but we don't :c anyway, I'll keep in mind to avoid gendered terms in English from now on, thanks!
@Nirax yeah at least with progressive English speakers, we're trending away from using gendered words like hostess, actress, waitress, seamstress, etc.
@Nirax It’s a bit of both of for simplicities sake and because of the connotations, I feel. It definitely really depends on who you ask. For the most part, on the internet at least, you’d more often find non-gendered use of most terms
She is amazing!! I have a question for native English speakers though: I always thought the female equivalent of host was hostess. Is that something else entirely, is it just not used to make things simpler or is it a dated word that has sort of sexist connotations nowadays and you shouldn't use it anymore if you want to be respectful? Thanks in advance!
I think part of why they did it this way is also that having it pre-filmed and then just having the video posted avoids a lot of the issues they were having when they livestreamed. She's great and I hope she sticks around for the long haul!
What I loved about toddlers in the sims 2 and 3 is that they needed help. Toddlers in the sims 4 can do everything themselves except for bathing. They can technically get food if you open the fridge and drag a plate out, they can play and even put themselves to bed. With infants you actually need to take care of them. Which makes me so excited!
They can’t use the potty until level 2 someone has to teach them
If you use the food display thing from Get To Work, you can just make the food and leave it there, it won't spoil and the toddlers can pick it up from there without the player intervening, but I agree with you tho
Petition for them to add preteens!! Because now I think it’s weird that we got a lot of life stages for little kids and not much for older kids
And make teens look like teens and not adults.
Don't get me wrong, I really love the upcoming infants update. However, I am BEYOND thrilled and honestly in tears with the sims having different thing for disabilities and conditions. I never knew how much I wanted to have diabetic items for my sims until now, and it honestly feels so great to know that many many people, including myself, will get some representation in the sims like this 🥺
I really wish they would add Underwear to the accessories category and put the binder and shapewear in there, because those are things you usually wear under clothes. It just makes more sense. 🤷🏻♀️
The last couple of minutes of this video made me cry! My spouse is trans & they often listen to me watch your videos. You have always been so incredibly supportive of the LGBTQ+ community & they make comments about how awesome you are.
This new update finally allows my sweet spouse to display their top surgery scars on their sim. Thanks for bringing attention to it & even putting focus on it ♥️🌈
this is how i feel :) i found this channel in my recommended and thought, ok cool, i like sims. but seeing how Kayla speaks KINDLY and OPENLY about LGBTQIA+ people **particularly us trans people** makes me so happy. and also to see/hear disabilities be talked about as a fact of humanity that should be represented instead of some unspeakable curse is incredibly comforting :')
The BIRTHMARKS!! I really hope this update also comes with birthmarks for other life stages, and stuff like smaller body scars, surgery scars and vitiligo.
We got top surgery scars !!!!
It might come with the expansion pack
@Lauren Malone I have a scar on my stomach from a birth defect repair, I too want my Sims to have scars
The surgery scars seems likely because one of the screenshots I've seen of content added showed top surgery scars :D
I do hope they add those, cause right now I use cc for those types of stuff, fingers crossed!
Imagine if the infants have little walkers, and there could maybe be something almost like a skill, and when they become toddlers they could have a movement skill!
And I’ve learned something new today. I’ve never heard of infant walkers. Though I have seen like those bouncy swing/chair things…and play mats with mobiles. Hopefully there will be some infant-specific toy/furniture beyond the crib. 🤞🏻
Toddlers already have a movement skill to learn to walk better, but it would be fun if infants have a similar movement skill for crawling/sitting up
@Abelha Pedras there was one in the sims 3.
Perhaps a trolley type of pushing toy, I see my niece uses it to practise walking, and i think it's super fun and cool
@French Fries "I turned out okay so it's fine" and "everything is unsafe so we shouldn't bother with not using dangerous things" are not actually good arguments. Lots of things Are unsafe for babies, and it's a parent's job to not allow those things around their child. Just because you didn't have lasting damage from it doesn't mean another kid won't.
@Abelha Pedras everything can be unsafe for babies though me and my siblings have all used walkers
Had to pause so I could cry. That birthmark thing, I think that will normalize it. My little cousin has that exact face birthmark, she is 7 and I have seen her cry more about her appearance than anyone I know. That makes me so happy dude.
Disability and visual difference coming to the sims, so so happy. I honestly thought we would just be ignored like in the real world and pretend we don't exist because it's "easier". So happy to have hearing aids and glucose monitors today, and birth marks i saw in the baby video, that's amazing. FINALY!!
Simsie needs the shirt, the Bob Pancakes figure, and one of the pillows! Sims team! Give them to her!
My favourite thing about Lilsimsie, is how inclusive she is! 💜 to the Trans community, LGBTQ community in general, disabled community, etc... This is an amazing human being 💜💜💜
I really hope we get a "first birthday" as an event, given that they showed a baby party I'm guessing that'll be it and I think it will be super cute
Omg that would be super cute
@felicia rundqvist well, highschool pack is really just based on US school system, and so is the thanksgiving inspired holiday from seasons, so that's not really important
@AchiKat The US is pretty much the only ones that do baby showers though, but I agree it would be cute
@AchiKat hopefully that will come with the expansion
@AchiKat yeah I hope that the addition of babies also comes with a bit more pregnancy related things
really feels like the 2020s are the decade of the sims team really listening to us and actually trying to give us what we want which is so nice
As a woman with over 50 degree curve on the spine of scoliosis, I would love the Sims team to make a body brace or a long surgical scar on the back, we scoliosis surviors need love too. 😁
@A.B. not wanting anxiety to be in the game is different than having an aid that represents you in the game
@Mitchie if it’s an escape why do you want your daily struggles in a game. I don’t ask for my anxiety to be in the game
@A.B. the sims is an escape for a lot of us and we like living as ourselves in the game. What about people who have to use wheelchairs and canes for example? It makes no sense to have everyone walking in a life simulator game. We should be able to have different types of people. It might just be a game to you but to some of us it means a lot more.
It’s just a damn game, they don’t need every disability on the game
I have scoliosis as well but mine is a minor case. Yes I agree I hope sometime soon they add a brace.
Better disability and trans representation has got me even more hyped than the infants NGL. My dad wears hearing aides, so, gonna be adding those to his simself, and while I don't personally know anyone who uses glucose monitors/patches, I'm so glad that they were also part of this update! My only complaint is that the "top surgery" scars are exclusive to male assigned sims, like women and femme nonbinary people don't also get breast alterations/removals. My grandma had breast reduction due to back pain, and a former family friend had a complete double mastectomy (full removal of both breasts) due to cancer, they both have scars similar to the new ones and they're both cis women. Like even though I'm AFAB and use a female assigned sim for my simself I am non binary, and have looked into top surgery to be more gender affirming. I love the fact that there is more trans rep in the form of gender affirming surgery scars, particularly as someone who is considering getting top surgery, but the fact that it's locked behind the arbitrary category of "male" when other people also get surgeries that result in the same scars or maybe get that same surgery, but don't identify as male in any way, seems kinda nonsensical.
THE BABIES ARE SO CUTE I'M GONNA SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUST!!!!!! THIS STREAM HAS ME THE KIND OF EXCITED WHERE I KEEP BURSTING OUT OF MY CHAIR AND RUNNING AROUND MY ROOM I'M WILLING TO WAIT SO THAT THE INFANTS AREN'T AS GLITCHY BUT I AM SO IMPATIENT
AND ITS ALMOST HERE THANKS TO THIS YEAR GOING TO QUICKLY!!
As a trans guy, I'm really glad to finally get representation from the sims team. I didn't really realize how badly I wanted top surgery scars/binders for the game until I got them, and it really makes my trans sims feel more complete!
You guys do realize that infants aren’t that small irl right? They are literally about 2 sizes smaller than toddlers, so the sims team did a decent job portraying that through the game. Infants start growing rapidly around 3 months and by 6 months are huge😭 you can tell they’re a little bit smaller than the toddlers
Unless you're like my nephew who grows super fast between ages 😂 he's only 4 and is basically 4 ft tall
I mean we can agree to disagree. As a parent to an almost 1 year old who hit milestones pretty early, and an aunt with 10 niblings. I'm pretty confident in what I'm saying. Toddlerhood starts at 1 year regardless if they're are walking or not. (:
Also, if you quote something you should cite it.
@Jamie if your 5 month old baby is almost big as a friends 20 month old baby I’d expect you know that all babies are different sizes…..
@scarletsjazz I was born w/ hair and had a thick head of it pretty quickly. It all depends! Childhood development, physically and otherwise, varies a lot.
Yep! Claire the youtuber just posted a picture of her baby who was born in October and was comparing his growth so far. He’s an infant and is that size so the sims team did a good job with the sizing
i cried at the top surgery scars, real actual tear. it makes me so unbelivably happy! im trans and pre-T and pre-opp, i so happy and euphoric that i can actually make myself in a body that actually feels like mine. seeing the in game scars kinda felt like when i wore a binder for the first time, pure and utter euphoria. this is why representation matters!!
Whopper Whopper Whopper Whopper
i'm so happy about it and i'm glad it gives you euphoria :)
I’m very happy for you mate! Trans rights!
lol at me being neutral (positive) for the entire announcement series only for the excitement to ramp up at medical accessories, top surgery scars, and binders. TBH I half expect I'll end up quick-aging infants the way I already do babies (*cannot* deal with crying) but the inclusion of an entire new *CAS category* makes me a little hopeful they plan to expand those in the future. I've had a CC hearing aid in my game for a long time, glad to see one available to all :>
Omg it’s all so exciting!!!!! Can’t wait for the baby update! Super excited for the added realism especially with things like having wipes, I assume a change table, baby gate, etc.
Also, as a deaf person, I really appreciate you advocating for closed captions
I have never been more excited about an infant update! They clearly put a lot of thought into this!!!
As a mom myself. This is so AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to have this type of gameplay with babies.
Seeing Kayla on the verge of tears for infants made me almost cry LMAOOO I am so excited for infants to come out AHHHH
I didn't care about the new pack until I saw the trailer
Tbf I was too like OMG and the update comes out thr day before my birthday
Loving that you highlighted the accessibility issues with the stream! It's super good to see people talking about how important that is.
For in-game stuff, I desperately want a wheelchair, but I know they would have to re-animate.... basically everything X)
Thank you for using your big platform to ask for closed captions!❤️This is so important. Especially if they are trying to represent deaf and hoh people in game, they should be taking the time to make the live streams accessible in real life.
the interactions with the pets are so cute😭😭
As a person with diabetes, I actually *cried* when you said they have glucose monitors in CAS now 😭😭I didn't even know I wanted this and now I'm so excited
The disability representation as well as the trans representation was SUCH A PLEASANT surprise 💓 I’m overjoyed that I can stop using the free earbuds as faux hearing aids and actually make sims like me in the game :’D
I really hope in the future that they add things like wheelchairs and canes in the sims. This is fantastic progress and I’m seriously looking forward to all of it!!!
I hope WE GET WHEELCHAIRS!
The wearables are amazing! My daughter is deaf and how fun to be able to finally make our family in the sims and have hearing aids for her Simself to where. Literally made this sim loving momma sob
Yeah totally, disability representation is so great. I remember when I was like eleven I wanted to make all of my family and our houses in the sims. My granny had to have her legs amputated due to an illness and it felt so wrong to make her with legs, so I just stopped playing in that save all together. Wheelchair and amputee representation would be really tricky to do with animations and stuff but it would make so many people overjoyed.
Sims community when infant update was announced : *hella enthusiastic*
Sims community when Sims 5 was announced : "ok"
Tbh yeah! I’m not rlly excited for the sims 5 it looks rlly good and fantastic!! But just not something id like
@Jay Bee May I ask what you find too woke about the sims? I’m just curious
Probably because it’s years away and we just have little info about build mode
I’m not really excited for sims 5, like at all. As much as I’ve came to love sims 4 I think they’ll do what they did with the 3 to 4 transition when it comes time from 4 to 5, they’ll let 4 get glitchy and just not fun anymore. Aswell as they’ve put SO much work into 4 and really cash grabbed it’ll be a little frustrating like always .
Also like we’ve spent so much money on 4 now it’s gunna start over on sims 5 lol so I get why people are like eh
I’m so happy that the infant update going to be in March, I have to sit for SPM which is a very big exam for high school seniors here in Malaysia & my last subject is on March 8th! I can’t wait to play with the infants 👶🏻
So wholesome. I like how they included Deli's reaction in this lol.
I AM FIGHTING BACK TEARS. I LOVE THIS GAME. THIS IS ALL IVE EVER WANTED. DO YOU GUYS SEE THEIR LITTLE HANDS????
Ok freakout aside, despite how teasy they were I love how blunt they were this stream. And we got top surgery scars so I am currently sobbing
Thank you for always having closed captions! I’m hard of hearing, especially with voices. I really appreciate you and the person who makes them 💜
I hope we can bath twins and triplets together ❤️
I just really hope strollers and playpens come in the expansion
The sims 4 rockin and rollin game pack (29.99)
@Alice Trevor i do think theyve said before theyve been working on various mobility aids for sims but itll take a while because its a big change. seeing the update with dex coms and hearing aids today gives me hope that maybe we'll get them soon!! i want my sims to have a matching cane to me😭
expansion? they will def be in base game
Or just come in base game. It would be nice if I didn’t have to pay 40 dollars for a stroller
there will be a stroller game pack and a playpen stuff pack for 4.99 each
I really hope the toddler clothes conversions means they’ll have also added infant clothes to past packs with more conversions. Can you imagine them in the wolf onesie? But that may be too much to ask…
Thanks so much for commenting about the captions, and for always putting captions on your videos! It’s so appreciated
the baby grabbing the spoon and just shoving it in their mouth is just so cute ;o; god I'm so psyched they're so precious
I feel fine with the news. I don't mind waiting until March for infants. It'll be here before we know it. And I assume they'll touch up more stuff between now and then. And the update was great! More Trans representation, glucose monitors and hearing aids!!! LOVE IT! I'm all for getting CAS objects (and hopefully new traits soon) to create more diverse sims. Give us wheelchairs and canes next!
When I saw the baby announcement WITH a date, I literally screamed out loud. I am so EXCITED for this. I've only been playing Sims 4, for four years but I have every pack, except some of the kits. The babies needed updating or made better from the beginning and now they will be better. It's so exciting, especially since they will no longer be stuck in a crib once they age into infants. This is so exciting. I l ove all the animations for the babies I'm seeing, the clothes, etc and I'm also excited about this new family they have coming to the Sims game. I hope when infants do drop, they will also include strollers so you can take babies for a walk. This is so awesome. Judging by the family they're going to introduce, the pack will probably be not long after infants drop because she's holding an infant so we probably don't have to wait too long. I am with you. I want this right now. It's so hard to wait but it'll be worth it I'm sure. I hope they select you in the future for testing the Sims 5, that would be cool.
Honestly so excited, probably more excited about their BEAR SUIT than the actual infants 😂
@Jorden Alexis True true
me but with the little baby overalls 😍
Ummmmmm You can't have the bear costume without infants duhhh🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
YEAH! I saw that and RAN to the comments! I hope they can cuddle teddy bears or hug pets or older Sims or something adorable, I swear every single infant I have is gonna wear that cute bear suit! Baby bears, adorable, can't wait to do the "bear challenge" and have adorable AF cubs!
Me too!!!! I’m obsessed with babies dressed as animals for some reason. I think we also have one for dogs where they can dress up like bears that I love as well.
i love that we're probably going to get the ability to make baby food, that one shot at 7:31 with the pop up in the corner makes me think that. also we don't have chickpeas so i wonder how we're going to make hummus
I love that they are doing live streams similar to Minecraft live where it is like interview style meeting the people working on it and showing little clips to get us excited!
I wonder if they'll keep adding more health related content? I'd like to see c-section scars! With the introduction of so much family and baby content recently, I feel like those would fit right in with what they've been working on.
I also suspect ostomy bags will be the next medical wearables! I just think those are more difficult since they might be deciding if they'll make them 3D like in real life, and if so, how to make them interact with clothing without clipping or warping. Hopefully we get them soon!
At least, we have a date for the infant arrival. Wouldn't be surprised if it get delayed a few days, as it's a pretty BIG update.
Looks like they used real peoples and motion capture to make a good part of the animations. At least, for the older Sims.
All I need to see is that one shot where it's the infants crying and the text "chaos" I'm gonna cry and I can't tell if it's joy or not lol
Edit 1: "freeing the babies" I don't know man the 100 baby challenge about to be different frfr 😭
2: ok I'm dead ass crying they added helmets for them and aweee I can't I love that
HELMETS for infants! Such a common thing I'm glad they chose to include them! A good friend of mine had twins and they both ended up needing them and I know it can be such a point of shame for new parents and it shouldn't be! And the bear suit. The beeaaaar suit. Ahhh!
@Awkward Manatee Is that an american thing? I've never heard of a helmet for babies, and generally most people I know do have weird bits on their head.
@Awkward Manatee Thank you, but what's the point of shame?
@RhaeLT While the skull plates start to fuse when a child is around 2 years old the helmets are usually for younger children because the helmet is meant to shape the skull plates in the right position BEFORE they fuse together. Helmets on actual toddlers are probably for actual protection of the head. I assume since they are learning to walk and could potentially fall into furniture etc.
@Pigeon often they need helmets because they sleep on one certain spot which causes their still soft and developing skull to form misshaped. It can in most cases be avoided by using a donut pillow with a newborn which keeps their head shaped well. But some children will need them regardless
@Amber B. My cousin needed one as a baby but with him it was because his skull got a bit of a weird shape from the birth because the skull plates aren't merged yet so the helmet made sure the plates grew together in the right shape.
Honestly infants is so fun bc it makes me excited that maybe they will add other stages of life like preschoolers and preteens, right now I just feel like my sims grow up way too fast and I'd love to have more time bonding with them. The teens look 15-18, the children look like they are around 7-9, and the toddlers look 2-4, I'd love to see the in between stages of all of that and maybe smaller, transition life stages where we get to see them go to preschool for a shorter time, make some truly terrible drawings in the drawing table and full, huge towers with the building blocks or even castles and houses, maybe they'd be able to go in the pool with help or only swing with an adult pushing them. Preteens could start having outbursts, maybe have whims to wear makeup or listen to pop, maybe feel embarrassed to be playing on playgrounds but still want to play every once in a while etc. This could even end up giving us more traits like we had in the sims 3 since they have more life stages!
This first quarter is seriously full of awesomeness from The Sims team!
I’m so freaking excited OMGGGGG WE ARE FINALLY GETTING THE INFANT UODATE SND GENERATIONSSSSSS! I’ve spent so much money on sims😂 and I do not regret a thing😂👏🏽
Tbh I wasn't really that excited for the infants update because I was thinking it will be a toddler figure like they did with the teens and adults being the same height but after seeing this OMG Now I am super excited! This update will fall on my mom's birthday! Now hopefully, I'm not the only one that keeps saying this...We Need Pool Tables Back!
Who else is excited for the baby CC that’s boutta come out?
the sims: acknowledges the existence of deaf people by putting hearing aids in their game
also the sims: refuses to add closed captions to their streams
I am so excited for the birthmarks! Now I can make a sim that really looks like me
I’m so excited about the top surgery scars! Ever since they introduced body scars I’ve been hoping to see that in an update and it’s finally here!
I am seriously so excited for the infants update! I love making families with babies, but past the aesthetics its such a hassle to care for them and get them in the game in general. So excited!
I can absolutely relate to the "I got emotional thinking about how important it will be to [others]" bit. When I saw the infant with vitiligo I was like "BASE GAME VITILIGO?" and went back to make sure I wasn't seeing things. I paused for a couple seconds while tearing up because, while I don't have vitiligo, nor do I know anyone with vitiligo, I know for a **fact** that this addition will be important for a lot of people.
Okay but the room the main host was so cute. Plus! I'm glad that the infants don't look all that creepy!!
i literally cried when Kayla talked about the medical add-ons. My mom has type 1 diabetes which limits the things she can do and also shortens her life which devastates those around her including me. It is so amazing that a game is finally adding a glucose monitor. I hope this will at least spread a little more awareness of diabetes and hearing loss. ☺
Also a t1, I was so thrilled to see the cgms! As a diabetic, I rarely see representation of my condition, so it made me really happy :)
@Colleen Quinn ME TOO OMG AHHH
I’m hard of hearing and have been downloading hearing aid CC for ages to make my sims like me. SO excited it’s coming to base game!!
@Amanda Baule Thank you so much for that reassuring note! I feel a bit more optimistic now.
@Sara That is so sweet of you! Your comment really touched my heart and I wish the same to you!
The expansion pack is def coming after the babies drop. I mean the “main” characters from the family have an infants with them. I’m so so so excitedddd, sad I have to wait until March but I’m so glad I have date to look up too.
It would be cool if meet the family could also mean a new family of townies for the base game. I think base game townies with stories is also a really cool thing they can add to the game. New lore would be fun to dig into!
A bunch of the interactions remind me so much of the sims 2 😊 I wonder if they’ll ever add preteens? I never expected a life state between babies and toddlers. The gap between child and teen seems so much bigger
Kayla asking for Sims merch was so relatable 😂
I'm so glad Project Rene is going to have player feedback! This makes me so excited.
Can’t wait to watch you start the 100 baby challenge over again with infants lol
Literally omg can’t wait
@Andrea thats what i'm saying, hell no lmao
A hundred crawling infants sounds like the stuff of nightmares
It would be so chaotic, I can't wait! 🤣🤣🤣
I just had a baby and seeing the breastfeeding made me emotional and literally gave me chills lol I was not prepared!
No one noticed the personality they even have baby personality I’m excited for it the banny icon look so cute
If you remember, in that one picture the Sims teased, there was a family going for a walk and one of the kids was in a stroller so maybe they will include strollers in this baby update. That would be amazing.
The infants update looks better than I was expecting I honestly was basically expecting just toddlers but smaller with a few different interactions.
I’m soo excited for infants! I literally was trying so hard not to wake my actual infant up. He’s so cute and I can’t wait to make us in the sims 😭😍
I hope they continue adding ages! It would be so fun to have a preteen/middle school aged sim since the jump from child to teen feels a bit big.
I agree, I think preteen to teen will be fun and more like real life like young adult to adult, I image a young adult is like in the 20's to early 30's and adult is late 30's - 40's and then there's elder
I think simply adjusting the teen's heights would make them feel a lot more like an in-between stage. they're the same height as adults now, which just makes them look like young adults, but thinner.
I don’t think there needs to be a buffer between teen and kid, I think the teens need to actually be teens
Or they could update teens to be less adult
I've felt like that too. When they age up to teen, they look like adults. Then when they age up to young adults there's pretty much no change. Most of the time, I give them a complete makeover when they age up to young adults so it feels like they actually aged up.
I think its time for Kayla to be a mother as her gasps tell whenever she sees a baby sim hahaha
im actually soooo excited for them giving sims an option for multiplayer. I feel like it’s gonna be way more developed if they’re thinking about being able to play with other people. I love the idea of sims being sims, but also having the option for multi
i'm so so so excited for the infants update, but also oh my god the addition of the medical wearables and top surgery scars and etc has me so excited. i extremely so so bad want mobility aids in the sims its unreal. like actual, usable mobility aids, like canes and wheelchairs. on my hands and knees begging sims team.
I’ve been taking a bit of a break from the sims 4 but I am so excited about this. Infants look like they are going to be an excellent addition to the game and going to make playing my families so much more fun
the infants, the live, AND THE NEW UPDATE got me crying like never, so thankfull to the sims team
as a longtime simmer, every sims announcement for this game all I can say is "that sounds great, please don't mess it up!" 😅
My first thought also! That's great but please no stretched infants 🤣
Right? Like "aww cute! I'll believe it when I see it, but I'm glad you're trying!"
I loved how in sims 3 let you have a pet bird and interact with them. I have an English budgie and she is always on my shoulder in real life and we are best friends. For me, having this element would make the game play more realistic. As well as having boats.
Honestly, I’m very excited about the infants! I love that they added hearing devices and other new base game stuff. I’d love to see more inclusivity with medical stuff. I’d LOVE to see wheelchairs and feeding tubes.
The updated babies are so cute!! I have a 14 months old so this makes me sentimental. The finger bite! So realistic!
Words can not explain how excited and happy I am for this update!
March 14th seems so far away... :(
“It looks like a party. A party of babies.” Kayla, it’s a birthday party 😂
As a woman who has had a double mastectomy and failed reconstruction, I'm so excited to be able to make myself with the scars!
There will definitely be a mod that makes them available on any gender soon, if they are restricted now. The community is great for that stuff. But please share with the official channels so they know what kind of things people would like.
@froginatub oh no really i totally just assumed the scars would be available on both frames. That's okay, i can just make my simself male.
@Hooked by Crafting you can do them on either frame, but only on male sims. Which is a bit of a shame for what Cait is talking about with the option for women who have had mastectomies, but I believe the focus is on gender-affirming scars (which I am excited about as someone who had gender-affirming top surgery myself!) but I hope they add more surgical scars too!
Can you do it on a female frame? According to patch notes it said "male" for the scars. So I immediately thought heart attack survivor
The baby update looks so good! I am so excited!!!!
Thank you for the hype video today! I’ve had quite a bad day so far and this gave me the energy I needed to finish some chem work! ☺️❤
I recently made my trans best friend and diabetic sister in law in TS4, and seeing the top surgery scars and glucose monitors getting added literally made me shed tears
I'm so excited about all the new base game cas stuff that was added today, and the infant's!! So excited
