Yet the character of Dana Scully remains a powerful example of how a dynamic female character whose primary pursuit is science—not romantic relationships—can have a lasting impact on our culture.

sims 4 may be missing a lot of basic game elements (i bet EA is gonna put them all in expansion packs) but i think the “scale objects infinitely” thing with Shift + ] makes up for it
