Sims3Store update 3 July
A new set in the Sims3Store:

Petition 5 July
Many Sim fans probably already know about the Sims 4 petition to put Pools and Toddlers in the game. And even though I signed it too, I never posted about it until now.
This petition is now signed by over 15.000 people! Let's try to get it to 20.000!


Note that I don't think Maxis will actually do add them in. There's just not enough time left and they sure won't delay the game. The reason to sign is more to send a signal that cutting out very important parts will not be so easily tolerated.

New blog 8 July
There's a new blog on TheSims.com. Rachel Franklin talks a bit about the reasons to leave out toddlers. She also reveals that there will be a CAS demo later this summer and we (finally) get to see some gameplay footage within 2 weeks.

CAS demo 9 July
EA is sending out the CAS demo to many Simmers. I believe it's completely random as some long time players don't get it, and some people with Macs (which is not compatible) do get an invite.
On twitter, Ryan Vaughan told that more and more people will get the invite as time goes by.

A lot of movies are appearing on YouTube from those that have the demo. Instead of listing them all, it's easier just to search for sims 4 cas demo on YouTube.

New poll 20 July
There's a new poll. The question is if you're still interested in the Sims 4 now so many features have been cut. Click here to vote: New poll.
Last poll question was if you would like a Sims 4 CAS demo. Good thing the demo is sent out, because over 2 thirds loves getting it, though still 11% is not interested.
616 people voted and here are the results:

Do you spend a lot of time in Create-a-Sim?
- Yes, that would be great!: 67%
- It would be interesting to check it out: 23%
- No, not interested: 11%
