I would love for sims to be able to swim in the ocean and surf. I also wouldn't mind some more beach related activities like a sand castle building contest for kids or maybe even diving. I hope something like that will be included in the game. Hopefully if they bring out a season EP they'll put it in there.

Also I think they should keep working on bugs and glitches, that could really use some improvement. Also because every new patch brings new bugs and glitches as well.

On a related note, I'm not sure if this has been suggested before but I would like to see different swim styles for  Sims with different athletic abilities. And the ability to choose between each style.

An overhaul of the traits system currently in place. Either:

1. Bring back the point-system in TS1 and TS2. Their personality has to be balanced, and being really good at one thing comes at the expense of being really bad in another.

2. Keep the current system, but certain traits are flagged as "good" or "bad." After a few good traits, you need to pick a flaw.

Either of these would make for more interesting characters. Yeah, it would probably have to come into fruition for TS4, but the ability to create perfect sims needs to be crushed mightily once TS3 runs its course.

I like the trait system, but I want to bring back the point system, but used as traits. So parents can praise and scold their children for pulling pranks, fighting, etc., and it could cause influence on what trait they will have later in life. Maybe Sims can simply gain or lose traits too, the way Pets do. Or they can encourage their children to be as evil, or good, or as nice, or mean as they want.

The only reason why I kind of want the closed neighborhood back, is to open up the restaurants, and stop the bloat, from playing multiple households, which I like to do.

In that case, speaking of Evil Sims. They're really fun to play with! Hetty Lionheart is my favorite Sim, and you know what trait she has? Evil! I think children should be meaner, and have more mean interactions under the mean pie menu! They need to back talk their parents once in a while. I'd like to see Sims start food fights as well!

Yeah, that would be nice too. More then just swimming circles in a pool. I'd love to see that on clumsy sims, would they almost drown when they start swiming?

I wish that the school was more realistic, like, only taking field trips once or twice in the sims life stage instead of once ever three days. >:(   It would also be really cool if sims could still do ballet when they're teens and adults and have a career as a ballet dancer. ::)  I think that the things they do in school should influence their life a little bit more than it does.  I mean, seriously, should a sim that got all F's in school really be allowed to become a level ten in the science career?  Or a world renowned surgeon?

But making those a bit more realistic standards would make it less fun, because it will turn into a chore, and less of a game. I never understood why people wanted to make the game more realistic. What attracted me to this game years ago, was the fact that you could still do normal real life things, but have that silliness, fantasy, frivolousness mixed in too. Sims was never supposed to make sense.

True, but I DO still wish that some of the after school activities they did affected their lives a little more than they do.  And to me, the constant field trips are just a little bit annoying.  But I do think I changed my mind on the thing about where if they make all F's that they can't be some things.  But personally, I do think that if they made all A's to start that their career performance should go up faster, or start out with a boost or something.  Lol.

I agree, Coocoo! Although, I'd like to see sims with F's still make it in life, but perhaps they have to work harder. Or say,. maybe they need to take evening classes or something at their place of work and earn a certificate before starting the actual job! I also like the thought of those with As moving up faster or maybe starting on level 3 or something. :)

There have been and there are successful people who haven't been so great in school but have had huge success. Some people don't even finish school, getting all F's doesn't mean you can't be successful in later life.

I wish my apartment sims could garden.  A tub with soil for planting tomatoes or bananas or lifefruit out on the patio.  I live having my sims live in apartments and I like having them garden.  Life is tough at the moment, as you can well imagine.

It would be great if there was planters where you could plant garden plants!  They could have square ones that you could plant one plant, and bigger rectanglar ones where you could plant 3 plants.
 
I would love it if there were 2x1 aquariums that had a base and everything, that you could put two or three fish in.

I wish that to, because they should be able to. There are ways in real life of growing fruit and veggies in apartments, so why not The Sims.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but recently I saw something on Facebook that I think would be a fantastic way to play around with the trait system - traits and points. You pick a trait, and then you can select one to ten points for that trait, so you could be Good and Handy, but more Handy than Good or vice versa, and it could affect how you live and such.

Also, hurrah computer has been fixed! Which means I have returned to the game!

I recently read a leak of a seasons expansion that included water play and more stuff like that! So it is possible we might be getting some of this soon! Yay!

I don't know if any of this has been said, but I've been taking a break from Sims 3 and playing Sims Medieval and I wish they would make a stuff/expansion pack with all the items from Medieval for Sims 3.  There are some awesome stuff there.  (though I did notice the unicorn statue from Pets is the same as the one in Medieval... so maybe there's hope!)

Wouldn't it be nice if when a couple gets married and exchanges "rings" that they could have actual rings on their fingers afterward? And the wedding bands would stay on until you remove them.

I already do that manually, but this would be kind of cool.

I remember they did that in Sims 2... wonder why they didn't do it in Sims 3? I really liked the rings, though sometimes it could seem a little strange because the one who was proposed to would have the "diamond" ring and the preposer would have the plain ring... so if it was the woman who proposed, the men would be going around with the "girl's" ring. I just found that very odd.

Even more odd is it to see when a sim get remarried: shoving one ring over the previous one from your previous wife.

I would like to see a notification, when something breaks, that shows what broke. Sometimes it's hard to find what broke, even harder in really big houses.  I also want a Nooboo DNA Bank, what happens if a female Sims doesn't want a husband or boyfriend but wants kids, they have to adopt. But what if they want there own kids? Not that adopting is bad, just sometimes maybe they want to have the thrill of pregnancy. In real life sometimes a couple can't have a child and turns to something like this, why can't Sims?

Does anyone remember how in Sims 2, teen sims could occasionally get acne? I'd like that back. It was a little funny.

(Quoting my own Quote.. haha!)

Turns out shortly after I wrote this my significant other got a mod (CC?) that someone has redone Medieval clothes as Sim 3 clothes.  Very exciting as they can now wander around in suits of armor, royal robes and even jester outfits.  I think my Elven Legacy should come back to life with this new wardrobe!

Yes I'd love that too. I love playing female/female couples and I wish they could just get pregnant. I really like the pregnancy interactions on the sims and I would like to have that for my female couples too. Then maybe I also wouldn't have to break up half of the high school romances, because of the same gender can't have kids issue while playing the immortal dynasty.
A while back someone was working on a mod for this, but unfortunately it was never finished...

Nice, thanks! I've been looking for it and when I saw that no one was going to finish it I lost all hope and gave up. I hope you can find it :)
