A majority of you would have surely noticed by now that Sims 4, an upcoming game from Maxis, doesn't have pools and toddlers. While it has always been common for developers to trim resolutions and cut down frame rates, very few of them have anything against babies and pools.
However, to clarify on what actually happened, Maxis's Ryan Vaughan has given out an explanation, according to GamingBolt.
"The fact is, we owe you a clearer explanation for why pools and toddlers will not be in The Sims 4 at launch," said Vaughan.
"It begins with new technology and systems that we built for this new base game for The Sims – a new AI system, new animation system, new audio positioning tools, new locomotion logic, new routing intelligence and much more are all entirely new in this game."
"So the bottom line is that when we sat down and looked at everything we wanted to do for this game, all the new tech we wanted to build into it, the fact was that there would be trade-offs, and these would disappoint some of our fans. Hard pill to swallow, believe me, but delivering on the vision set out for The Sims 4 required focus."
While most of you won't be satisfied with this explanation, this is all that we've got for now. Hopefully, pools and toddlers will make it to the game in the future if the "technology" at Maxis allows it.
