Hi! This is a brief comparison of Mermaids in the Sims 3 and Sims 4, introduced in Island Paradise and Island Living, yeah, first time trying one with only 2 games and if Sims 4 doesn't introduce other creatures this might be the case in the future with zombies, fairies, genies, etc. But for now here it is!
As I've said in my community post, I was having issues with lag in Isla Paradiso and I didn't solve it 100% so sorry for the mild breaks in animation, etc. If there's something I appreciated in Sims 4 it was the smoothness and the ability to fast forward time without worrying my game would crush.
Anyways, what do you think of the old vs new mermaids? I thought they'd be pretty similar but I'm glad they've got new powers and stuff, I would've loved it if they had ranks and more depth like vampires (honestly, the vampires game pack felt more complete than this whole expansion for some reason imo) but ooohhh well, let's just enjoy what we did get.
Sims 3's mermaids were revolutionary since that had never been done before and they're pretty damn solid and they can compete with Island living's mermaids, I like details like their transformation, the way to take care of their needs, their interactions like calling a shark attack are pretty neat but I found myself liking Sims 3's ability to actually visit underwater, it's perfect for mermaids to explore and it's just beautiful, I found myself missing that a lot in Sims 4.
Sims 4's mermaids are way more customizable than Sims 3's, you have a few tails to choose from and the new Sulani world is gorgeous, their new powers are great additions, the mermaid lullabies, the dolphin, the ocean threats, etc. Those powers are my favorite part of these mermaids but I wish they would've given them more depth.
So I think a mix of both's best aspects would've been amazing but if I had to choose one I'd say Sims 4's, but when it comes to the whole expansion? Sims 3 has soooo much content in that pack! But that's a story for another video, I'll see if i can compare the sea/beach in my next video and maybe include another game so I hope to see you soon!
