Pool building is one of the features that will not make the cut when the ever-popular title ships in September, which is news that is sure to disappoint many. If it’s any consolation, players will be able to use the fountain tool to “create sophisticated landscapes.” Interestngly, swimsuits have been a part of the Create A Sim building process.
The news was broken as part of a blog post that outlined elements such as neighbourhoods and some of the weird moments that can happen. Sims will be able to travel between neighbourhoods and entire worlds without the need to restart the game. And all accomplishments, relationships, skills and so on will stay with them.
It closes by saying that the team is “building an incredibly strong foundation that is capable of fulfilling every one of your desires in the years to come.” So, pools and toddlers may make an appearance, but not at launch.
