Finally![edit source]

It took them long enough to announce it! But why are they releacing it so soon after Supernatural? And don't they usualy announce a Stuff Pack in between EPs?

I think it's because Diesel Stuff is released after Katy Perry's Sweet Treats, so it's even. Nikel Talk Vote! 18:15, August 3, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, yeah. Forgot about the Katy Perry thing. I'd completely disregarded that one...

Bella's disappearance and Caliente sisters![edit source]

Did you read that sims can befriend an alien and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor? This will explain a lot about Bella's disappearance and Callients's relation with aliens! What do you think?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:14, August 3, 2012‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Last Sims 3 EP?[edit source]

Could this be the last expansion pack for the Sims 3? The previous two games only had eight expansion packs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17:02, August 11, 2012‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

well, actually The Sims only had 7... 19:06, August 11, 2012 (UTC)Alyxvance73
Maybe The Sims 3 will have 9 expansions then? Just because they'd be cool like that. However, I do think that Seasons may be the fianl expansion. Colin the Panda (talk here) 19:16, August 11, 2012 (UTC)
If that's true, I'll be sorely dissapointed... I'm hoping for a college EP...
GothLoliManda (talk) 00:54, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
I want this to be the last EP. They should spend their money on TS4. I do want a college EP, I just want TS4 more. BakeryChaz ~ (let's have a chat!) 01:09, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps there will be one more EP, but we just have to wait.05:21, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
I think there will be at least one more EP, just my prediction. However, if TS4 is officially announced when Seasons come out, then it will likely end with this EP Tdi NYAN CAT FTW Fan o Gaga 07:05, August 12, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah i am pretty sure this is the last EP after this they will work on the Sims 4
( i am 95% sure of this) TheRichie2 (talk) 17:35, November 3, 2012 (UTC)
Seasons is not the last EP. There's still the unannounced University Themed EP and at least one more after that along with another Stuff Pack or two after "decades". They wouldn't keep doing expansion surveys if they wasn't planning on expanding the life of TS3 through 2013. Anyways, the earliest The Sims 4 would be announced would be E3 or Gamescom 2013. It would still most likely be a year away at that time. The Sims lasted 4 years, Sims 2 was 5 years so TS3 will also be 5 years and maybe even 6. With the way EA is getting DRM and social crazy with new games, I wouldn't rush TS4.--The Black Scorpion (talk) 17:48, November 4, 2012 (UTC)
Well if this game is basically like sims 2 seasons and world adventures, then I hope the last EP will be more shopping/malls/open for business or college/uni type game. Buffyfan123 (talk) 06:20, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure if TS3 Seasons have anything related to World Adventures, but what I hope is that they don't remake TS2 into TS3 because otherwise, I'd simply switch back to TS2. I wish they could be more creative in making a new expansion pack instead of redecorating what have already been. I'm not opposed to OFB-like EP in the future, but I'd be happier if they could find something more unique, while running a business becomes just a side feature.
As far as I can tell, back in TS2, I think Uni, OFB, FT, and AL are unique themes at that time. Now, you can't even say TS3 has unique themes on its own. WA = BV/Vacation (kind of), Ambitions = OFB/FT, LN = Nightlife/Hot Date, Generations... probably could've been even included in base game (but unique nonetheless), Pets = Pets/Unleashed, Showtime = Superstar, Supernatural = Makin' Magic, Seasons = Seasons, University Life = University... What next? Spare Time EP anyone? Nikel Talk Vote! 17:40, December 2, 2012 (UTC)

New additions?[edit source]

Is it just me, or is Seasons not featuring any new careers? I'm starting to find it rather similar to Generations. No new careers, no new towns, no new LTWs, only 2 traits... I wonder if it's actually going to be worth buying. /:| Nikel Talk Vote! 14:17, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

Seasons is featuring one part time career for aliens. >.>13:15, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
Just one. Part-time. Aliens only. Gee, how interesting... /:( Nikel Talk Vote! 14:28, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
Well, they worked really hard on the Seasons-Weathering part, maybe no time to make a new town or create more careers.15:06, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
I hope so... Seasons has gotta be good, or else... Well, it's so nice to hear you so optimistic, Thomas. :o Nikel Talk Vote! 15:09, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks... glad to make things positive. :)15:11, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

EA said they couldn't include Alien in the CAS because these 2 EPs are developed by 2 different teams, but they managed to create the weather stone? Gimme a break. Nikel Talk Vote! 11:56, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

I see it more like they ran out of time. Either that or they will eventually add it in a future patch since most Simmers will want this. That and so happy that Aliens are so advanced. Unique DNA? This is how the occults from WA - SN should have been. Can't wait until November so I can cause chaos with the UFO. HEHEHE!--The Black Scorpion (talk) 13:07, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Hopefully so. And that's the part I haven't heard about aliens. :o Nikel Talk Vote! 13:20, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Nevertheless, one thing I'm still concerned whether there will be a lot more missing Sims if the game allows us to swim anywhere the body of the ocean. I hope it restricts the unplayables to only swim several meters near the edge only... Nikel Talk Vote! 14:07, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Graham has confirmed via Twitter that NPCs will stay near the shore. Only Sims in the active household can swim further out.--The Black Scorpion (talk) 15:37, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Good to hear that, thanks! :) Nikel Talk Vote! 16:20, October 12, 2012 (UTC)

Actually, it's only a demo/preview version of Seasons. A time trial kind of thing. Works for so many days and then... no bueno.--The Black Scorpion (talk) 04:05, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

About PlantSims[edit source]

Hi, I was just curious. I was wondering for a while if they were adding Plantsims in this EP.

-One thing is that you can buy a outfit made of leaves that strongly resembles a plantSim.

-Another is that on the Seasons article, under what EA said "wasn't going to be in it" they never brought up PlantSims.

I'm assuming maybe there's a chance that they're hidden, and EA wants us to find out for ourselves as an easter egg of sorts?

I mean the game just came out yesterday so maybe no-one has found out how to unlock them yet?

I don't know, this is just speculation, but I was just wondering if maybe, just maybe the possibility that they might be in here somewhere?

I mean EA from what I heard never confirmed Ghosts, or Genies being playable in create-a-sim in Supernatural before it was released so...

Holiday name[edit source]

Why did they change the names of the holidays ?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) June 17, 2013‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Probably to generalize the holidays in The Sims? Remember that not everywhere celebrates Christmas, labor day, and Halloween, even though they are commonly well-known. Nikel Talk Vote! 05:43, June 19, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe because they might be fined or arrested for copyright? That could happen. (talk) 19:33, October 22, 2014 (UTC) 
"Christmas," for instance, was not invented and no one owns "Christmas." There is no copyright violation in using that word. Nikel Talk Vote! 11:24, December 14, 2014 (UTC)

Toddlers Eating Snow/Playing With Snow[edit source]

I wish toddlers could still eat snow and play with it! Why did EA take it out? :( (talk) 19:32, October 22, 2014 (UTC)
