Greetings:

What is wrong with me? Sims3 is coming! June 2009 is just right around the corner! Oddly enough I am a lost sheep...(!!)
I really want to like sim3! I even watched some of those cheesy sim3 videos-More times then I wish to admit! I want the game to do everything that EA claims it will do...Though I do have my fears! What if this isn't the game I want it to be???  huh

Clearly Sims3 is a jump up, graphic wise, from Sims2-Though not the big jump I was expecting. I was hoping that we would get more photo real looking sims and less cartoonness (rw?) with this one. I must add that some of the sims seem kinda chunky even when they are trying to look skinny...Some of the skins looks barbie dollish plastic and they have lifeless eyes! You would think with all the skin/eye and body mods for Sims2 that EA would have an idea what people here in Sim-land want...Oh, sure June can't get here fast enough, but I can't get over the feeling that this is just Sim2 for 2009...

If you happen to be fat, plastic looking with lifeless eyes-I mean no disrespect.... tongue

LMFAO ^

Yeah I don't think TS3 is going to be the best game of all time like everybody thinks either. . . and about the way the sims look and why maxis made them like that is because they are complete and utter morons and don't really give a damn what the sims community want and don't take into consideration that if they don't allow CC to be in the game (which to my knowledge at this point is not going to happen) that there sales for the Sims franchise will be a complete flop and there company will more than likely go under because of loss of sales and angry angry simmers because I hear there shipping that devil of a software SecuroROM!! angry to screw everyones computer up hence shelling out more money to this shady and corrupt company we all love to hate rolleyes

 ^^^^^I Know that made me LOL [ regarding the fat plastic looking sims] haahaha Grin

I agree about the securom thing and if they disallow any custom content I can fast seeing this game being shelved by myself after the initial novelty has wore off. A ctually if they put and updated securom I probally wont even buy it. rolleyes

I agree... the sims look awfull. They said that we're given more options when it comes to creating a sim but it seems that the options go from chunky to even more chunky and that's it. I too was expecting something so much more than what we're being given. I really want to buy Sims 3 but right now the characters in it reminds me something out of Disney's Toy Story. Even the faces look the same no matter if the sim is male or female. I'm not a kid and I don't want to play with something that looks more suitable for ten year olds. What were they thinking???  Headwall

I only wish that when all the talented CC makers get their hands on that game, they can undo what the "great minds" back at the EA managed to screw up. Oh, and SecuROM... I better say nothing. Just the word leaves a bas taste into my mouth. tongue

EA needs to hire some of these custom content creators. I've seen them do wonderful things. The custom stuff I get from the web is what makes my sims look realistic. They put the people at EA to shame. When I first saw The Sims 3, I thought it looked awful and a step DOWN from The Sims 2....it's even poor style wise. I am not intrigued.

I don't think that EA is foolish and doesn't have skill to make a great body mesh.

It's their dessicion to make such kind of body mesh....a barbie type.

The male body is too small and thin....even in some clothes it look smaller than the female....very ugly.  Undecided

I hope there's a competitor out there, so EA will not feel like "an absolute king".

Well I'm perfectly happy with TS2 for now and I don't plan on buying it for atleast a couple of months and besides I have bigger things to worry about, my boyfriend is about to start a new job in the spring and were investing our money in a new home very soon so TS3 is out of the question for probably a year or so OR if I see some significant modding, hacking and just overall re-making of the game because I agree with Sierra I too am an adult and do not have any desire to play with these childish looking sims that EA was supposed to take a step UP from Sims 2 and not DOWN, what idiots I could curse and scorn Maxis all day and all night but I'll just leave this thread with this thought in mind Maxis better re-consider the CC thing and making elements in the game more realistic including the sims or they are in for a very big surprise come there next fiscal year, and I don't think Maxis is going to be very successful with this game until the intial novelty has worn off like simpleprincess said because simmers CRAVE more and more and more CC for there game, thats what makes it seem so realistic and why the sole purpose the sims franchise its such a success like it is today. . . NOT because of maxis but because of the thousands of creators out there that make it a game Grin

Here is some more horrified screaming for you: Consider that our present research indicates that something like the Insim may not be possible in TS3, leaving you stuck with EAxis-mode only.

I am not surprised, Pescado.  I just wondered if a Sims Program Editor will be possible, but I guess not. They want to control everything, so I will have to stick to sims 2.   Mad

We need Pescado to apply for a job at Maxis and then loot the place blind while singing piratey songs.

The sims looking awfull and having fat floated faces even when they are skinny has a large part to do with the ugly skins. they are toonier than in sims 2. its just a mattar of time till someone makes default replacements with the louis skins for example. im not sure if ill buy sims 3 right away or when a few good hacks are out (no social workers, gay making kids, etc) but probably im too curious not to.

Don't worry. We've been howling about that for months.
