SimGuruRomeo shared information relating to two popular topics that have arisen since yesterday’s reveal trailer. The topics regard horses and if your Sims would be able to swim in ponds.
Why are horses not in Cottage Living?
Making horses with the quality and depth of gameplay they deserve is a substantial undertaking. We felt they are not core to the garden-to-table experience, so we focused on animals that are in Cottage Living. We always are listening to your input on what you would like to see for future releases and we will continue to do so as we expand The Sims 4.
Can my Sims swim in ponds?
We wanted to provide players with as much flexibility in customizing the looks and shapes of their ponds. Because of this, Sims will not be able to swim in them. However, we wanted to make sure there was fun gameplay associated with ponds. You can find Sims splashing in the ponds edges, catching fish that you have stocked in the pond, as well as decorate your pond with brand new objects and VFX.
