I would, but I can't even figure out how to download mods as it is (plus I'm always worried they'll fuck up my game). But I'm watching an old livestream put up by sims community of seasons and I have been hyped for like an hour straight, so maybe this expansion pack will be what makes it just as good as ts3 for me.>>2707
That was how it was for me too, which is why I tried the legacy challenge. Having goals to meet and occasionally failing really forced me to explore the game more and gave it a sense of challenge I was sorely lacking. I was all of a sudden panicking about keeping sims alive, who's gonna marry who… and that was when I had the best drama (one sim who got together with another, found out he was dating someone, then never spoke to him again, then went to try and be with her childhood friend IMMEDIATELY after this failed date, and at their wedding, she accused him of cheating and the entire wedding was off. She didn't talk to him for 3 days bc she had a "betrayed" moodlet or something, and then when that went away, she immediately went to smooth things over (like, the game did this and I couldn't stop it) WHILE HER SISTER'S WEDDING WAS TAKING PLACE (I made her slap this guy and they were enemies for the rest of their lives, with her sister high in fitness skill delivering a beat-down to him at one point lol). Then she married a nice guy and had a daughter who looked EXACTLY like her, and got really good at gardening. When death came for her she had a flower for him- unbeknownst to me- and lived for a long ass time after that. None of this would have happened if I hadn't tried to play by different rules and it definitely made things more exciting lol). It also forced me to give sims random traits and that led to interesting personality development and me trying to figure out new careers I had never wanted to play with before that were actually lots of fun.
So I guess maybe try some challenges? There's a bunch posted on the internet. You can even modify to make them harder if you choose… or make your own! (if you do that, share it with us! I'd love to read it)
