You Know, Worm178 May Have A Point For Once (Albeit Inadvertantly…)

Oh dear, look who’s back looking for attention again.

Someone ought to point out to Worm178 that there’s no advantage in landsharking in the Sims series.

But we digress.

The point is, to all intensive purposes Sims 4 world maps are whole, merely crippled by the programming forcing players into flitting from neighbourhood to neighbourhood. As the maps are whole, a clever programmer or programmers could subvert it to create the same sort of open world play that Sims 3 players enjoy – which would go a long way to making it more acceptable.

By the way, when you only have thirty seven views, the troll level isn’t high. In fact it’s about as weak as if gets. Just saying…

Maybe not.

Or maybe…

Over to you Sims 4 modders!
