* We've come a long way in the 57 years since Tanwa Nuidya was just two Sims in a shack, and we've achieved all the things those two Sims wanted for their community: independence, a unique cultural identity, 20 grandbabies... They'd be turning in their graves if they thought their children and grandchildren would give up everything they've worked for and assimilate into the SimNation ways they founded our town to escape from.
* It's not very likely that the new dimension has lizard genetics. Or furry skin. Or that odd flowering hair that lots of our women have. If we moved there, Sena's Gift would be completely destroyed, and we would lose everything that makes us The Nuidya Tribe as opposed to The 40-ish Sims Whose Last Name Happens To Be Nuidya. (And without my furry skin, I just wouldn't be Salo, you know?)
* We have yet to see evidence that the new dimension can support vampires, werewolves, plantsims and Purple aliens- yes, purple, although you're supposed to call them 'extra-terrestrials' over here. So a large percentage of our population (again, me included) might not be able to live there- especially as all so-called 'cures' were banned from Tanwa Nuidya at the Founding. It's the Second Unbreakable Law, actually. We're not sure exactly how many that leaves when combined with the former point, but trust me, it's not many.
* We've seen the pictures. The Sims of the new dimension look really creepy. Reason enough for some of us. (Not including me this time, actually. My daughter Kevialle on the other hand...)
I hope we can still participate as a SUN hood and make new friends even in hoods that are converting. Frankly, I'm starting to get sick of my royal sister-in-law and her obsessive war against everything that involves the number 3 in any way.
