Are you hitting F10? I found that using F10 toggles off the UI.

Try changing it to G instead.

Looking at the Amazon breakdowns, it might be more like: 

About 46% have a lot of trouble with the game/can't stand it/find something severely lacking (one to two-star)
About 39% really, really like the game/like it very much (four- to five-star)

The rest are three-stars, but this group seems to be growing more than the other two. I'd like to think that's because, perhaps, certain free site creators have significantly contributed to the game's being much more playable for many people, though the game still has its glitches and quirks, and many others still have a lot of trouble with it. In six months or a year, overall impressions of the game might be very different, thanks to these creators. Of course, EA won''t recognize their achievements, but I am floored at how far these creators have come in a short time.

Yes, but as for the people who can actually run the game, they seem to really love it. Beats me. I can't get into Sims 3 myself. I'd rather stick to Sims 2 or just hop off the sims franchise personally.

But I think we have to keep in mind most Sims players fall under the "casual" category. To them, Sims 3 is a very impressive game given that they have not played more in-depth and graphically-intensive games than the Sims franchise and maybe online Poker. Being a Mass Effect and GTA:IV fan, Sims 3 falls below my standards quite a bit.

Then we also have the WoW and Dungeon Runner fans, who will quickly fall in love with Sims 3 because it is very similar to a rewards-based RPG.

I think EA did a good job as far as appealing to the right crowd. Unfortunately, those of us who don't fit in are left out of the lore. Hardcore sims fans who love crafting neighborhoods, lots, sims, making movies etc....will probably not be too pleased with it.

Try FRAPS, it works well for me. It can record video, too.

But good luck getting that one to work. Maybe I could upload some lots for you

LOL Or when they see how creepy their eyes look when turned away from the light...

I would say probably 70% of the people who have bought the game do infact love it very much.

However, I happen to be in that other 30%.

Well, when the game has to load a ton of custom meshes my framerate monitor (FRAPS) notifies me that the game is slower than when loading maxis content. That being said, it is normally because custom meshes have a higher poly-count and more texture detail. Catch my drift?
38  The Sims 3 / Sims 3 Buzz / Re: The sims 3, What do you think? on: June 22, 2009, 07:41:47 pm
I have a high-end PC with 13.02gb of Sims 2 CC. My entire folder is 19gb large. Sims 2 runs fast even with all this. But I doubt highly that the Sims 3 can run at a decent framerate with 13.02gb of data. It's even a little sketchy when I played without any custom content. I can play games like Mass Effect and Crysis on High, but the Sims 3 is sketchy? EA has some explaining to do. lol I wouldn't dare load that game up with 13.02gb of data.

They truly did destroy the franchise and took the game off into a new direction.

I can only hope another GameDev starts a simulation franchise soon.

That's because Marvine removed her stuff during the InSIM fiasco (when Kathy and Eric betrayed the community and a guy named Walt threatened to turn everything into a paysite).

But you can find her stuff here: http://www.gaysimsclub2.net/forums/index.php?showforum=67

I remember when I first got Sims 2, I was hooked. It was only the Base Game and I had no CC.

But Sims 3 with it's improved graphics and "improved gameplay" can't even hold my attention.


It's a shame Will Wright left. The game could have been so much better.
45  The Sims 3 / Sims 3 Buzz / Re: The sims 3, What do you think? on: June 21, 2009, 09:32:18 pm
Yeah, my pc can play the game on all High, and the pretty graphics sure aren't enough to keep me playing and interesting. I think EA skimped out on the gameplay.
