All of them look fantastic. Grin

I kinda hate/love how they get attractive when they grow up but are really just 'ohmygodno' as kids and toddlers. Cute as babies though.

I'll be honest; when I first started playing the sims 3 I felt cheated. Honestly, the graphics made me want to gag but compare your BARE sims in the sims 2 to the bare sims in the sims 3; the sims 3 looks way better and you can't argue it. You guys must have all forgotten about your days with no custom content. Me, though, didn't have those days. I jumped into the sims 3 franchise late which is actually pretty good but there were countless times where I had to begin over again from scratch and I really realized how much CC makes a big impact on gameplay but it really shouldn't.

Not to mention, they wanted to break to something else when they created the sims 3. Now, come on, if they looked exactly the same you'd be complaining about that so how can they win? I'm not acting like EAxis is holy since we all know they're really only in it for the money itself and you can't blame them for that. Look at the comparison between sims 2 and sims; perfect, right? Right. The sims was first produced in 2000 and only four years after came the sims 2 and it was a great shift. Seven years and boom, there's another one--the sims 3. Now, in such a short time span of four years they really picked it up and improved graphics and gameplay and yet, there were quite a few who still didn't move on to the sims 2 and stuck with it and obviously there, we can all see how the sims 2 is obviously superior.

My guess for people not giving into the sims 3 (Not including that whole SecuROM nonsense and the cc = no-no) is simply because of what they're used to and the sims 2 being the familiar. And really now, the sims 2 don't look plastic--they don't even look real. At least the sims 3 is closer without the use of custom content meaning you would need less of it meaning more space on your computer and your game wouldn't lag because of all the crap you had on it. Though, this is all going if CC isn't really going to be a no-no. There are ways in which the sims 2 does tower over the sims 3 but there are ways the sims 1 towers over the sims 2 as well.

Don't think I don't have my share of annoyances with the sims 3; there are loads but I had them with the sims 2 as well and they can either be ignored or fixed. And I'm done, thank you for your time.
3  The Sims 3 / Sims 3 Help / Cheat Sheet on: June 11, 2009, 01:46:05 pm
These are all typed out by yours truly from the guide so these are all they've got. I didn't see any complete cheats, just pieces and bits. I also added a few notes in some sections.

Help - Lists all commands available at the moment.
enabledLlamas [on/off] - Gives a message that saying, 'llamas enabled.'
jokePlease - Posts a random joke on-screen.
resetSim <firstname> <lastname> - Resets the named Sim with neutral motives, no moodlets and teleports the sim back home.
fps [on/off] - Toggles the framerate indicator in the upper-right corner of the screen
quit - exits the game.

Build & Buy

constrainFloorElevation [true/false] - Allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, sims, and other structures on them. Walls, floors, and objects will move with terrain allowing you to create sloped walls and floored hills. However, placing new walls/floors will still flatten terrain and placing objects will still require the terrain to be flat initially if the objects normally require it.
disableSnappingToSlotsOnAlt [on/off] - When on objects will not snap to the slots when holding ALT.

hideHeadlineEffects[on/off] - Hides all meters and effects such as plumbbob and skill meter.
fadeObjects [on/off] - Toggles whether the objects fade when the camera gets close to them.
slowMotionViz [level] - Puts the game in slow motion. o = Normal speed. 8 = slowest.
snapObjectsToGrid [true/false] - Toggles how objects snap to grid. If true is given, behavior is normal. If false is given then by default, objects do not snap to the grid and holding alt will snap them to the grid.
