I frainkly love this EP, as much as I anticpated it I couldn't have been more pleased, I mean the camera, the camping, the slew of new items, what MORE could you ask for (aside from fewer bugs.) And with certain nessecary hacks, things are perfect. I like it, but we want to know your opinon of the EP.

Look past all the bugs for one thing! Its a new EP there are So why don't you tell us what YOU think of the Sims 2: Bon Voyage
Edit: DOH, seems to be your calling sound. thanks MissDoh!

Edit Again: with the InSIM, things are so much better in my game, although I don't use it for the vacation memories it is really useful, I can't break myself away from it!

I like the whole EP! From the new furniture to the new interactions, I stay entertained.  The vacation site are so gorgeous, Maxis has impressed me with the new buildings. Most impressive, the ocean and the pirate ships.

Arial, I just moved your post to the right place :tongue:

I love BV now that I have mods to fix the bugs.  There are many new things for my sims to do.  It is not my favorite one but it is not in the bottom of my list either.

I really like the 'walk to...' option. Much better than always calling a taxi. I have yet to try it in Uni, but I understand it works there too. It always irritated me that the YA's who, after all, live on campus, had to call a cab to get to the library, slackers!

Have a look out for any updated mods and hacks you use. People have had issues with outdated one's left in. Enjoy, it is fun!

The vacation trips are addictive! ( like in RL?) They really are hunting down the new memories and searching the hidden lots and learning the ways of the locals, it is real FUN !!! Great new stuff, also. Beach lots are formidable!

Looking for wise simmers to calm my sarcasmes: can somebody explain me how a game that seems to be a global bug can be sold?! I've been waiting so long for my sims to go elsewhere for vacations, spend a hot night in a famous hotel and meet people they'll have to care about for few days... angry9: I just tried to make a sim to test the new lots, and after one second in his new house, i noticed the wants panel was out of order (blue or black tiles with no want in), after an hour, the paperboy came to give me the newspaper, and came to give me the newspaper, and came to give me the newspaper, and came to give me the newspaper, and came to give me the newspaper, and came to give me the newspaper :mumum:... Then i went here to see the bugs reports to discover that there were a dozen other bugs... Well, i felt simply and completely disgusted and said: "okay Svetlana, you gotta forget theSims2 for a while...". Consider this keeping in mind that i spent (like many others) 34,99euros in that f$ù*ing stuff! Seems Maxis pulled the rope a bit much more than they should, isn't it?

Actually it seems to me that you forgot to remove your mods that aren't compatible with BV.  From your description, you still have InSimenator installed.  Not Compatible.  Inteenimater is also not compatible.  A host of other mods are compatible.

The beach is cool, but not what it could have been. There a re a lot of better looking pre-BV beach lots out there, it just does not look real; the waves and the foam are great, and I do Love the sound, but, I don´t like the color, the ocean must not be that crystalclear light blue, and I totally hate the line between the water and the sand, I´ll always photoshop this for my screencaps.

I love this EP. Yep these new vacation places give some of a real vacation feeling, so GG Maxis !
I haven't experienced any bugs Svet, it's probably for some mods you must have. Check your Downloads folder and retry a game. After I guess you will be able to have (a lot of) pleasure with this EP. Smiley

I love this expansion! I just recieved it in the mail two days ago though I was only able to play for a couple hours yesterday, but I already love it to death. I think the beaches are fun (I'd stopped downloading houses with "beaches" on them because I started getting too many terrain paints that were useless to me) and my sim loves making sandcastles. Honestly, what I like most is the updated attactions and such like that, I always felt it was silly that they didn't update with each expansion. And I can't wait until people start updating their jewelry to work on the new jewelry in game instead of under glasses.

I did have a bit of a misstep where I hadn't taken out my hacks. My sim couldn't walk to a lot, the lot pulled up and time passed but he continued to "arrive" without actually arriving. Since I went through and got updated mods before installing the game but didn't pay attention to which were updated and which weren't, I'm going to have to try them one at a time or look each up and see if they were updated. Again. But it's a small price to pay for my own stupidity.

Anyway, I completely give BV a thumbs up.

No, i didn't have deleted the insim' & inteen' the first time i played the ep. But unfortunately, that made me search for answers to finally discover there were several bugs ingame. Still i don't understand they could sell a failing product! Well...
I think i saw there was an update for the inteenimater, with various woohoo teen... (uncomplete?). Will the insimenator be updated soon? Please forgive my lack of patience, seems i don't realize what is making such a mod!

Well, of course the Insim will be updated soon. Unless Eric and Kathy get fed up and decide to just abandon the idea altogether because of all these people pestering them to update it as soon as they can.

As for BV, I love it, what can I say? I have a slew of hacks in my game, and of course I took care to make sure they were BV-compatible before installing them. I'm using Twojeffs' Autonomous Casual Romance, a BV-compatible version which hasn't officially been released yet since it's still in its beta-testing phase, but I can't say I've had any problems with it so far. As for Inteen, I'm not sure - I normally don't use it anyway, but there probably is a beta version of that as well at the moment.

Overall, BV is a lot of fun, apart from the lags which, from what I've read, a lot of people seem to be experiencing. My new machine is a high-performance one which I've only had for just over a month, and I've read that even people with high-performance machines aren't safe from those awful lags.

WoohooTeens for BV is available.  

Neither the Inteenimater nor the InSIMenator is not yet available though.  
Make sure you try to find out what mods/hacks you have that are compatible before putting them back into the game.  Many modders have been busy making updates for BV.
