I know it's a "teen" rated game.  I'm not sure why it has to be but it is.  Even so, what teen doesn't accept murder as a fairly regularly occurring, albeit highly negative human action?  If they are making this game for teens, I would think they would enjoy this aspect even more than some of the adults.  I know I watched "Nightmare on Elm St." dozens of times when I was 16 and plenty of similar horror movies before that.
Thank you for understanding that I know the Sims is not meant to be GTA.  I don't really see the correlation everyone makes to that game.  I don't want my sims running through the streets and shooting down dozens of other sims....well...townies maybe, but that's beside the point.  Having a murder hack/gun mod doesn't really do it for me though as I want my other sims to remember what has occurred, develop fears of the evil sim and similar fates. I also want to be able to battle the evil with the good via the police force and powerful good sims. I want the darker sides of sims entwined into the stories of all my sims. 

And it doesn't have to be brutal - I wouldn't even expect something like that.  Just make it cartoony fun in a diabolical way.  Real melodramatic soap opera evil using poison, or dueling with swords.  I just cannot conceive how this would not be appropriate for teens.  I think it's far more unethical to portray the sims as goody-goody as they are.  Stealing candy from babies is going to get really old, really fast.

So now the news comes out that "evil" sims do such dastardly deeds such as (ooo!) kick over trash cans and (eek) steal candy from babies.

"You can put him in the game, make him "Mean-Spirited", make him evil, give him the "Kleptomaniac" trait, and then you can see what his life is like - give him the "Criminal" career. He'll come over to your house, yell at you, threaten you, because he has the Mean-Spirited trait, if you're not looking he's going to snatch your stuff... so you get to see what life is like living next to a homicidal criminal. The game is for families in that it's a non-violent game, but players can make any character they want and there are lot of very clever things that you can make happen. So it's really open-ended, it's up to you what kind of characters you put in the town. It's not really possible to do cruel or mean things - that's not the kind of game we are"

This really sickens me to no end. What part of threatening and snatching stuff equals "homicidal criminal"?

Firstly, I hate that this is considered a family game.  I hate the ratings system and don't want this game to be considered a family game in the first place.
But even if they are determined to do so. 

What's wrong with Sims murdering other sims??!!

Who exactly are they protecting?  Children from the concept of murder?  I don't think so.

What happened to Harry Potters parents?
What exactly does the Evil Queen wish to do to Snow White?
What happens to Bambi's mother?
What do Cowboys and Indians do to each other?
What does nearly every preteen campfire ghost story involve?

I could go on here but the point is that kids are well introduced to such concepts by the time they are at least 7 years old. And you know what? If they want to cater to the 7-12 group than they need to make a different game for them.  By the teen years, kids not only get the concept but are reading Stephen King or other similar scary books, watching murders on soap operas and numerous other types of related entertainment.

I want my evil sims to do truly evil things and that includes murder. It doesn't have to be gory, bloody, realistic murder - they can do it in a soap opera kind of way.  I'm really not happy about this at all and I'm tired of the Sims not showing the darker side of human nature.

She is one helluva beauty!!! My sim just had his fiancee  leave him at the altar and  I came here for a replacement.  I didn't think I would find one so fast as I am rather choosy.  I may change her name to April though as she just reminds me of an April. Gosh - Now I'm wondering if HE is good enough for her. Smiley  Thanks!!!

Oh - She will be marrying a Rather rich fortune sim named Dean McAllister if you are curious.

Boy was this ever needed! - I love the knight costumes that Maxis made but they look so bloody wimpy on those regular sims that I can't bring myself to use them - This changes everything!

I'm dl-ing the bodybuilders again as I reinstalled my sims and am already sick of the wimpy maxis males.
Was happy to find the teen bodybuilder meshes as well - but I'm confused -
Do I need to dl all the desired teen/elder skins AS WELL AS the other original adult skins?  Or can I just get the teen/elder and that will work?

Oh and has anyone added nipples for the females with these skins yet? Haven't seen them and just wondering if I'm missin' them.

Thank you! Smiley
