1  A Safe Haven / General Discussion / Re: The Dumbest Thing You Said or Did on: September 05, 2009, 03:22:58 pm
I was in a meeting with the owner of the company I work for a couple of weeks ago and she was talking about how this client calls her when they want something and then ignore her whenever she calls. I said " Oh so your like their booty call". It totally slipped out and I was pretty sure I was fired. Fortunately she didn't hear me but the other people in the room did. She couldn't figure out why the hell everyone around her was laughing. Note to self-Internal dialog should be just that, internal.

Me too Teren. I couldn't wait for Spore and I have played it little too none since I got it because it just wasn't what I thought it would be. Sad because they really could have had something good if only they weren't so pig headed in their ideals and listened to what we the people that buy the products think.

The game has pros and a lot of cons.
The Pros
The color wheel is fun. I could spend hours spinning and changing colors of things. Food looks like real food! There are some new interactions that were really fun, such as "announce pregnancy" when you meet your friends while out on the town. Some of the traits are fun. The great kisser trait allows you to make out like a pro and who doesn't want that kind of trait. Smiley I can brush my teeth now. I do like being able to seamlessly move about the town. I can see that it was a really good idea and had a lot of potential. 
The Cons:
The Sims themselves, their clothing and furniture are ugly beyond belief, it was so much work making someone attractive. I am spoiled after spending years getting beautiful creations from brilliant people, I hate being stuck with EA's unimaginative and obviously male centric sense of style and design. These Sims will need to be nominated for What Not to Wear. The camera is wonky at best and drives me to drink. I feel I was promised a fuller immersion then I am really getting. Sure I can go anywhere but most of the community buildings are facades just like in Hollywood. So now instead of sitting outside of the house waiting for Sim to come home from work, I sit outside of their job. I feel like a stray dog. The needs of the Sims were not supposed to be the driving force but I still feel I spend as much time feeding and pottying rather then exploring and growing my Sim as EA stated would be the case.
As I said above this game has a lot of potential but EA has a lot of greed. I do not think they will let the CC community be this time, especially with the EA download store at launch. I firmly believe they expect to make their bread and butter on download content for this new branch in the franchise. They saw a piece of the pie they weren't getting any of and have decided to go after it aggressively. Ruining what could have been a really awesome new leg of the Sims experience. EA's creativity will never be able to match the brilliance that is out in the CC community and thus they will fail miserably by taking something that made the franchise successful and exploiting it. If that is indeed the path they are on I will be done and just live with Sims 2 until such a time when something new and shiny comes to distract my attention. If they prove me wrong and let the CCer's co-exist, the game has potential and I could even see myself looking forward to expansion packs.

Thanks billy. I searched through the downloads file. I found some mods that I didnt know I had left in the downloads file and seem to have corrected the the burning and showering issues. It's playable now except cant have a baby so there has to be something I missed. Expansion packs are always so fun.

I have this problem as well. I had it even with all my hacks removed. When I added the Insim back in I was able to buy clothes throught the wardrobe adjustor.

My Sims won't stop showering either. The thing is their temp gauge is all the way up to high and it is fall so I can't see it being because they are cold. The water balloon fighting is on my last nerve. And has anyone had their Sim spontaneouly combust. Two of my Sims did. I was able to save one by pleading with the Grim Reaper but the other Sim is no more. I was so good and removed all my downloads which I had never done for any of the other expansions. I am so frustrated and I am about ready to uninstall the Seasons until some wonderful person creates a hack to control their firestarting ways and showering obsession.
