New poll 10 August
There's a new poll. The question is what you like to see in 2013; Sims 4, more expansions or none. Click here to vote: New poll.
Last poll question was which Supernatural creature you like most. Fairies are the most wanted Creature of this pack. Followed by Witches. It was to be expected that the updated Vampires would come in last since they're pretty well known, but the rather low score for Werewolves is somewhat surprising.
1314 people voted and here are the results:

Which Supernatural creature do you like most?
- Fairies: 42%
- Zombies: 12%
- Werewolves: 9%
- Updated Vampires: 6%

Misc. news 16 August
  Sunlit Tides
Soon available in the Sims3Store, a new neighborhood called Sunlit Tides. It's a tropical island with nice beaches, a jungle and exotic bungalows.
I guess now we know why there won't be a neighborhood in Seasons... But seriously, it is a bit odd timing to release an expensive new neighborhood close to the announcement of this expansionpack.
