I wish more modders to come to create awesome mods for the sims 3 as we got in this site because I have no hopes from EA they came back. They are rather developping the sims 4 !

Yeah I hate how the children especially don't really have that many social interactions to choose compared to Sims 2.

I think the mistake is how EA handled the Sims 4. I think the Sims 4 should have been a cleaned up version of the Sims 3. Go to a 64 bit engine and eliminate the memory limits. Clean up the code. Make sure the supplements work better with the core program, and maintain more consistency between the addons and the main program.

I think EA could have done a lot more with the Sims 3. They barely scratched the surface. For example, they could easily have added more vacation worlds (like Japan, Africa, India, England, Germany, Russia, Mars). They could have added more professions. They could have opened up the rabbit holes. They could have added more vacation worlds (how about a winter resort with skiing and other winter activities). They could have added more summer activities (Volleyball?) They could have made the world much bigger -- perhaps with several cities all in the same world. Perhaps allowing for thousands of NPC sims.

Once they got rid of the memory restrictions of a 32 bit system, a lot more was possible. Trying to maintain 32 bit compatibility was a straight jacket for the game.

I wouldn’t say that at all. There is consistently more people browsing the Ts3 section than any other on this site.

Yeah they could had at least done all those things in Sims 4 but instead we got a watered down copy of Sims 2 and 3.
