The best life simulator

The Sims is a unique series. The first versions of this game attracted even those who previously had a vague idea of these games. Many new players enjoyed building and furnishing houses, looking after characters, and having a great time. The fourth part of the series has changed little — it is still friendly to those who hardly understand the games. Moreover, The Sims 4 took a big step toward the casual audience. But first things first.

What is this game?

The Sims is a series of life simulation games where the player controls one or more characters (Sims), takes care of their well-being, develops their skills, strengthens relations with other characters, promotes their careers, and arranges their homes. The Sims 4 is designed for several platforms, including Mac. In addition to improved graphics, it has more features and advantages than previous series games.

User-friendly character editor

The character editor deserves a special mention. Now there are no boring sliders – everything is done on an intuitive level. You need to select the desired part of the body and pull it in one direction or another. Creating characters is a pleasure — you can view the result of your actions clearly and immediately.

Construction

The developers of Sims 4 for Mac have worked significantly on constructing apartments and houses. Construction has become much more convenient – you can move and rotate rooms and change their size by pulling walls. Now you don't need to reconstruct the house completely; you can just add an item, stretch, or remove it. Filters have also become more convenient – a stylized miniature house or room in the corner of the interface. You need to click on one or another element to get access to all items of this type.

The mood of your Sim

One of the primary «chips» of Sims 4 is your character's mood. This feature shows itself best in social interactions. For example, it is much easier to achieve reciprocity by being in a romantic mood than if you are stressed after a hard day at work. Moods give Sims more liveliness; they look less like plastic dolls and more like real people.

Expanded skill list

The expanded list of skills in the Sims 4 deserves a special mention. In addition to the well-known and valuable skills, the developers added fun ones, primarily related to career growth. For example, your characters can learn to do tricks by flooding a forum, and the more they pump their skills, the better they will prank Sims around them. There is also a pleasant ability to become a «professional player» by pumping the «computer games» skill.

Conclusions

The Sims 4 remains the same good old entertainment. The developers have left unchanged the very core of this life simulator, but not without some limitations. Those who have spent much time playing the previous versions of this game would miss some gaming elements in Sims 4. However, paid and free add-ons will be designed in the nearest future.
