we do tend to get passionate over games/sims we love.
i try to remember that the devs arnt doing anything deliberately to spite us, even if aspect X or Y "appears" to fall by the wayside.
im sure the team would love to drop in all the older RoF content if they could but they have limitations that are simply not and cant be made public to us.
its a great sim to us but to the devs its their livelyhood as well as their passion.
they want it to succeed just as much as we do, if not more!
i hope i didnt come across as harsh with my response!
