Question Sims 3, Do you like it/questions - June 28th 2009, 05:14 PM

Do you really like the game? I'm finding myself not liking it as much as I thought I would. The graphics are great, but I'm more fond of the sims 2. The "texture" of the sims are just... Blah. I lOVE the trait system, that's awesome. It takes too long to accomplish skill points and whatnot. Days seem to be forever, and going to work makes you want to sell paintings at home or something.

I haven't found a cheat to increase skills. Does anyone know one?
Do you notice how the music sounds like the ending of Blink 182 Feelin' This?

I prefer TS2 to the TS3. I like how you can change the patterns/colours, how you can have traits and travel the neighbour better but I don't know, I just find TS2 to better in some way but I haven't really played it much, I might grow to like it.

How do you change the patterns. I haven't found out how to do that yet. And you know the card you get in the box? How do I activate it?

To change patterns on the clothing when your in create a sim, when you select the item of clothing there is a "create a style" button or something along those lines that you can click. I can't remember where it is but it's there somewhere and you can change the pattern/colour of the clothing. As for furniture, the same thing applies, there is a button in buy mode/build mode somewhere that when you click it, you can change the pattens/colour of the furniture/wallpaper etc.

What card is that also? I don't think I got a card but if you can say what it's like/what it says I might know.

It's a ten dollar simoleon card you can use to buy things online for the sims.

(Can you answer the other questions in the thread?)

Does it have a link that you can visit to redeem your points or anything? If not, the Sims 3 store is [http://store.thesims3.com/] and it could say something on there.

As for the cheat to increase your skills, I've got the prima guide with a cheat sheet and it doesn't say anything about one to increase skills, but you could try TestingCheatsEnabled and see if that allows you to drag your skills up more? I'm not sure if it will or not but I think it worked in TS2.

Hope that made sense x

Ahh. This is kind of a bummer for me. I was looking forward to the Sims 3 but I guess I shall stick with 2. The games are rather expensive too! So I was expecting a little more positive feedback from users.


Live and let live.

The only thing I don’t like is the fact that even with story mode progression off, things still happen to your other families when they are not the “active” family. They move or die, honestly I don’t like that. I didn’t spend an hour creating them, so that the game could kill them in ten minutes.

Thats really sucky

I havent played it yet. I'm waiting for it to get cheaper. Plus, I dont reckon i've got enough ram to run it on my laptop. I was hoping it would be the same type of jump from sims 1 to sims 2....but the replies arent positive..

I got bored of it way too quickly.

I haven't used any cheats for the game so I don't know much about them. But after a quick search around I couldn't find anything either.

I agree, it won't get cheaper unless you buy it pre-owned.

As for the family thing, I've heard about that and it's really annoying. If I played a family for a while and went to play another and the others all died or something, I'd be irritated.

Well the newest patch came out. Maybe they'll fix it.

I like the game a lot. I think the most interesting gameplay comes from making Sims with ridiculous traits. I live for the moments where my Sim is talking to someone and something really funny happens. Like today I was playing as a Sim I made called Marcus. He joined the Business career and I decided that I'd go make him be friends with his boss. I had cheated to make him rich. When Marcus was greeted by his boss, his boss yelled at him and threatened to kick him out for being "inappropriate" because he found out that my Sim was rich.


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.

I've heard that there are less items and hairstyles and such in the game this year, which EA is going to offer as Paid for Content. If this is true, as players- don't you feel very ripped off?

Re: Sims 3, Do you like it/questions - July 2nd 2009, 05:55 PM

There is a little bit less of a selection of hairstyles, but the items are fine. I think the reason why the developers did that is because you can customize anything - including the hairstyles. The focus is on that. You can change the color and pattern of any item, making it more personalized and unique. Although I do wish there were more hairstyles, it's really fun to make someone's hair hot pink with purple tips. So in conclusion, no, I don't feel ripped off. The ability to customize everything to me trumps having billions of items that only have 4 different styles to choose from, or not being able to change at all. It's very satisfying to click on the color palette tool and be able to change the entire look of any object in my house.

I like it but not as much as I thought I would. There are some good points but there are a lot bad points too. I still think it's better than Sims 2 though.
