Sims 3 has a lot to overcome before it will be allowed in my house on my computer.  Yeah, it'll run it, but who the heck cares when all it's looking to be is a kids game.  I'm not a kid, nor am I buying it for a kid.  I write and need a vehicle for that.  If I wanted a kids game, I'd go play on my wii.  *and even that doesn't have kid games on it.*

I was on insimadult and one of the posts were about how pissed everyone is especially the top adult modders on that website the fact that you can't mod or hack or create ANYTHING for the sims3 without going through a very great deal of trouble and if you read the whole thread it does make sense because I think EA Games are ASHAMED of what the we the community have put into there precious franchise and they should be HAPPY that we the sims community have made the game such a success like it is today because without us it would be played for about a week and become very repitive and boring and I think they honestly don't want Sims 3 to be 'corrupted' like they think the Sims 2 has been over the years So long story short I will NOT give EA games one red cent for this crappy game which is going to be the biggest flop of 2009!

I'm going to continue to "guess" why those sims in TS3 look the way they look.  I say guess, because the game isn't out yet, but based on what I know about programming I'm absolutely convinced that TS3, and not just its sims, looks that way because the game was ported to the PC, as opposed to TS2 which was designed for the PC from scratch.  I'm pretty sure that this game was originally coded for consoles and is being ported to PC's and Macs, even the interfaces look like those EA created for console games.  If I'm right, the whole thing is very much in line with EA's recent thinking about giving priority to the hot console market over a declining PC gaming market.  I would imagine that in order for EA to release a much improved sims game for the PC, an I mean, really improved in every way, the system requirements could be met only by a very hefty gaming PC most current TS2 players wouldn't be able to afford or be willing to spend money on.  The seamless neighborhood with beefed-up graphics would probably be too tall an order for any other machine and the game would go the way of Crysis.  I may be one of those who wouldn't fork out $1400 for a super PC, but judging by the way TS3 is shaping up, I'm pretty sure it's not the game I want, and if custom content will be a thing of the past, then I know this kid isn't buying the game.

TS3 shows every sign of being ported from console, yes. The graphics, the models, all of them are nearly indistinguishable from the console versions, if you look at the console crap. Also, the gameplay and quite possibly the code also looks consoleish.

I think they're doing this because of the adult type of mods and custom content. I've read some complaints and maybe even claims that some adults have made against EA/Maxis because of Adult downloads people can get. The no CC or harder accesibility of it is there way of making sure of no porn type CC because there purpose of the game IS really to appeal to all ages, kids and adults. I might buy it though and see what I can do with it.

THAT part I find unlikely, considering that retexturing is the easiest, easiest mod to make in any game, including games that are otherwise non-moddable. One merely needs to look at the entire "Nude Raider" phenomenon to realize that making even totally "unmoddable" games "adult" is the most trivial mod of all.

I think I'm gonna wait to see what people can do with it first before I buy it. If there is no CC or anything that can change gameplay, then whats the point? I don't like the crappy EAxis stuff. And personally from the screen shots i think she looks fat and plastic rather than realistic!

Oh, I wasn't talking about skin, I was refering to parts put on sims. I'm not gonna give detail because this site is for everyone and kids are here, but they said things like that would be difficult. The reshaping or mesh side of things. I don't care for that kind of stuff, but I would like to make meshes for clothes. Does that seem possible for TS3? I know Numenor or the squad of SimPe would more likely have to do that, but that's only if they could majorly hack into it.

I have to say that I am not at all interested in sims3, I don't see what's so special about it. Everything "new" they have I've seen on sites before or were in the sims2. I mean come ON! give us something to work with. sigh. I'm not impressed. I'll stick to sims2. The graphics really don't look great on sims3 and the cas looks like the ones from the console sims haha.

Well, from the videos, sims really look like lego-figures, and the objecttextures...
Do you really want to mix vibrant plaid with tiger stripes? The TS2 textures are scuffed, and now, in TS3, its just... tawdry. We need a lot of CC's!

I am waiting to see what CC (mainly skin, eyes, and face template for me) is made for it, if any. I do like the scenery I see in pictures and videos but I can't shake the feeling that those pics and videos are tweaked to get people hooked. I don't want to buy it only to get bright cartoony weird Pixar-looking things.

Besides I never really got to play Sims 2 because of college but now I've graduated and work at night Sun-Thurs I have more time to play now so I'm content with the Sims 2 Grin. I've downloaded wonderful CC from mods to skins for Sims 2. Absolutely love Gunmod's radiance lighting, ACR, and the like. Like a few others, I'm intrigued but not crazy about the Sims 3.

The most likely reason to make it hard to mod the game is so that the Maxis store becomes the sole provider of new content. Isn't that obvious? They want to make a fortune on their poor quality extra content. If they are the sole provider of new content, people will flock to the store and they will make more money that way than they lose in initial sales. People will buy whatever they put out.

They won't get *my* money, that's for sure. TS3 looks horrible; the seamless neighbourhood does not impress me in the least, I can go play SimCity4 for that matter; the raised level of difficulty for creating CC and modding the game near to impossible makes it even worse.  Why, do they really think that TS2 would be such a success without CC, mods and adult content? Ha! EAxis have proved to be incapable of creating interesting stuff for their game.  I bought TS2 a month after its release and two weeks later put it aside. Boring. I started playing again last year, after discovering the treasures all the modders and CC creators had produced. Without TwoJeffs' ACR, Pescado's mods and all those custom skins and clothes, I would never had gone back to TS2. Period.

As for the complains of adults towards EAxis and the CC created by the community, I have heard them too. I have even read articles on newspapers, laughable articles. One columnist in particular was shocked wondering how her niece could possibly THINK to kill her Sims' kid in the pool because "he was annoying". Please, give me a break! If all the complains are like that, then some people need to get a life -- and maybe a little happiness with it, never it's too late.

Last, but not least, if Maxis aspires to be the sole provider of TS3 content, they should hire some creative and clever designers first. They wouldn't have to look hard and far, just a careful search around TS2 community would  suffice.

In any case, with my current Downloads folder there is no point in getting TS3, no point at all. It can keep me happy for years to come.

I think everyone is pretty much on the money here. EAs partner is Sony, right? Sony, apart from making televisions and stereos also makes PlayStation, hmmmm.
As for the adult mods, so what, If people out there don't like them, then they don't have to download them, simple.Keep away from the adult sites.
And if little Johnny downloads rude bits in the middle of the night, big deal, he probably knows more about the subject then both his parents combined,and I might add Is probably healthier for his physiche in the long run than blowing away half a hundred AIs. in the first person shooter games.
So all those out there that are offended by the adult mods, tough, leave me alone, I'm an adult dammit. I can assure you that myself and thousands others of that play the game ala adult don't transform into sexual predators after midnight.
I think EA Maxis already has some clever designers in mind. The relationship between themselves and TSR. is almost at the hand holding stage.
