Another patch, but this problem has still not been fixed Frown
I think I will never use the camera like they said when they sold the Moschino pack Frown

Right? It's embarrassing for the Sims team. It really makes them look incompetent when it should be an easy fix. I just want to get the feature they sold me for $10 :/

@SimGuruNick I know you said that you are acknowledging this issue, but can you let us know if this issue has essentially just been swept under the rug and just determined to be a broken game feature? I'd rather know than to get my hopes up after each new patch update (like today's) and the problem still isn't addressed.

Seeing new controls added to the sims game was nice to see photography be more professional style. As some one who love photagraphy    hopefully the E&Q get fixed.

I'm still curious about this. 

 

Does the slide at the button not do the same as the keys ?

 

I totally get the key should be fixed but you can still move around the Sim with the slider, right ?

 

Or did the key do yet something different ?

@crinrictIt doesn't. The slider at the bottom attempts to give a 360° view of the Sim, but it is on a wonky fixed slider that just sends the camera in an oval around the intended subject when you choose the option to "Take Photo".

 

The freedom that the keys allowed was it unlocked the ability to freely move around any subject, angle the camera up or down, and move closer and further from the subject. It unlocked the functionality of the TAB camera keys to be used while taking a photograph with the Moschino tripod.

@xjfo411x Thanks for clarifying that.

I tend not to use camera movements too much as I get sick from them so didn't try (or watch videos that potentially trigger my motion sickness)

This is so sad. I'm really wondering if maybe my faith is misplaced in this team. I thought it was a bunch of hard-working, creative, community driven people but seeing a pack's central selling point left broken for over 6 months is so discouraging. It feels like they already have our money so they don't care to give us the product we paid for now. This was one of my favorite features for story telling and decorative purposes. I know the team might be stretched thinner with the pandemic, but even a simple update, something saying "hey we're still working on this, expect it in ___ patch" would be excellent.

@crinrict Well. Unfortunately that explains a lot.
