    Please, PLEASE add a height slider with working animations. Take as long as you need to, it's the achilles heel of the franchise (in my opinion).

    This is great news! However, I would love it they would make it alittle more realistic, and to give more options with younger sims (babies and toddlers mainly). Also more features like hair growing, parents having joint custody if divorced or one night stand kind of thing. Asking relatives to watch children by inviting them over or just dropping them off, instead of hiring a baby sitter. Maybe have the option to put children up for adoption if parents did not want kids. :)

      I love all of those ideas and would love for them to be put into the Sims... I do REALLY agree with that we need more things for Toddlers and kids... this is really lacking in The Sims 3. Sure they are adding something new in The Sims 3 Island Paradise but hey...

      I think that if we could have more items for toddlers and babies that more interactions would be implemented. Maybe a changing table, or a playpen or little toddler pools if you know what I'm talking about also it would be cool for a baby/toddler bathtub chair so that they could bathe. Maybe to make the game more realistic EA should make pregnancy longer, maybe an option for it? Teenage pregnancy is also an idea; it happens in real life, why not in Sims? Also babies should be wrapped in a blanket when they come home but they should have the option of clothes. Baby showers would be cool too. There are a million things EA could add for babies and toddlers so maybe a "Sims 4: Children Craze" expansion pack? I think everyone would be angry if the real-life aspect did not include baby and toddler items.

      Another thing that would be great that i just thought of, would be where you are able to go to work while pregnant and not take so long of a leave after a child is born, unless you want to take that leave. I also agree with the babies clothes.

      I also think this is a great idea. Maybe if they even included the option of allowing the sims to make doctor visits while pregnant, so the expected parents would be able to find out what they're having and stuff like that.. just like in real life.. :)

      I totally agree with you, if the moto is " PLAY WITH LIFE " than you should literally play with life.

    Super happy to hear that they're NOT moving the game towards all online playing. I doubt I'll be able to afford to start playing The Sims 4 from it's launch... I'm still trying to catch up on purchasing all the expansions for the Sims 3! I will be looking forward to following the news around this, though. :)

    WOOHOO! A rushed sub-par game at an astronomical price! I can't wait to be gutted by EA! A co-op or multilayer aspect would be awesome if you could work it out. However, I do NOT want the game to require online status at all times like SimCity. I would love to be able to play with my siblings and watch them grow their families & homes while I do the same simultaneously.

    So glad it is offline single player, and not online co-op like EA has been leaning towards recently.

    For the Sims 4, there should be a The Sims 4: Backstage Expansion pack, kinda like showtime and late night except your sim could work behind the scenes.

    All I feel is the need to ask for more CAS customization. Perhaps, creating clothing designs in-game, height sliders, separate customization for separate body parts, etc. Make it happen Sims Studio, gain back my trust!

    Please....please PLEASE get rid of the "There can be only one core mod" thing. It makes modding incredibly frustrating, not to mention it`s harder to tune the game to how we want it. Or, better yet, look at the most popular mods, and incorperate what they do into the Sims 4. Just a suggestion.
