There's that pink building in the background too. It seems like there is a balcony because of the fence, but at that angle there's no bottom visible. So now we're back to no ceilings?  Roll Eyes

You mean you were expecting a step forward with a sequel? Now, that is just silly.

Do you want to know what else Liz? The lounge chairs, or whatever they're called have the same mesh as in The Sims 2.

If they put everything in the base game then there is no reason to make expansion packs.  And expansion packs = more $$ from the same people.

I wouldn't even recognize stuff that is from TS2 in TS3 (I didn't realize anything in that pic was the same as TS2) since I rarely use any non custom objects or clothes. I'm just wondering how old that screen is. It looks to be an early version of the game, but if it's not and that's what the game will look like even for people with high end computers, then I'm not impressed. Guild Wars looks better than that and that game has been out several years now. My brother plays it, btw. The only thing I can see in that pic that looks improved over TS2 is the feet. They actually have toes.

The textures in the best screenshots show there to be more texture detail than was in TS2; that follows expectations, because the minimum graphics adapter specs are much higher than in TS2.

Of course, my thoughts do not follow the theme of this thread, which has degenerated into the blind leading the merely unknowing in a P&L tournament.

As far as I'm concerned, more texture detail is hardly reason enough to abandon custom 'hoods, to be required to keep neighbourhood buildings we DNW, to be saddled with a whole new throng of squish-faced townies... all in all, to surrender a great deal of the creative control we've come to enjoy. Who wants freedom to play the way we like when we can have individual toes?!

The again, I'm apparently blind and unknowing. Since you're so much wiser than the rest of us, maybe you'd care to enlighten us ignorant slobs as to what the theme of this thread should be?

Yes, but a P&L tournament is mild compared to the truth that's out there. Let them have their P&L: The horrified screams can wait for a few months.

Six of them on each foot, by my count.

Oh, I can hear them now: "my game broked...I can't play this. Halpz!"
We will be inundated with 12's seeking the impossible for the unplayable made by the idiots who believe that they can pull the wool over the sheeple's eyes forever. Sadly, they're right. MATY will be the bastion of sanity if all goes well-or wrong as we know it will.

This is mild compared to what we'll be seeing in June.

I don't see individual toes, at least not on the girl in the lounge chair. The bottoms of her feet look like flippers. I'm of the opinion that they paid attention to what they were doing when drawing the toe lines on the top of the foot.

Bloke standing up, you can see his feet down the bottom. Either he has six toes, his big toe in the wrong place or a huge little toe...

Definitely six toes. He also either has three abnormally short fingers or they are clipping through his swimtrunks.

TS3 has all five fingers in the models, versus four in TS2, where the two middle fingers shared a set of joints. I see no evidence of individual toes as skeletal entities, although making the appearance of toes on a foot mesh is mostly just a polygon count issue.

I am not as inclined to think the game will bomb popularly as has been expressed here, although I have no doubts that some users will cling to their Sims 2 the way the great unwashed masses bitterly cling to their guns and religion. Smiley

The Apocalypse is nigh! Head for the hills!

I'm packing a gun and my game. I'll fight to the last pixel for my right to play Sims 2!

In all seriousness, though, I think you're being very generous with your assessment. I'd like to be wrong for once and have the game succeed; but the majority of Sims players are over the age of 12, and thus have more taste,and intelligence than EA will credit us for.

We're the majority who will buy the damned thing, not an 11 year old-they have to ask Mommy or Daddy for the money.

Most of the mods and creators of CC are adults. They're the people we're counting on to save the game, and I don't even know if they will have the tools to do it with, or the inclination once they see what they're trying to improve.

I have a gut feeling, though, this is going to be a bad release, and even worse roll-out.
We shall see.

Yuh huh. I never implied that the toes would independently animate. I just stated there are six of them. Meaning that, whether they be boned or polyed, they are definitely too many.

Six fingers is a feature.  TS3 supports inbreeding for realistic yokels and cultists.   Cheesy

Perhaps they'll have a slider for number of fingers, and another for number of toes?

My father was slaughtered by a six-fingered man.  I was eleven years old. And when I was strong enough, I dedicated my life to the study of fencing. So the next time we meet, I will not fail.

I hope there is a finger # slider.

So Sims 3 is like Sims 2's inbred cousin. This will be helpful when the family you aren't currently playing decides to hold a marriage between the uncle and the newly-adult daughter in your absence. Rather than hollering WTF!?, you'll have expected it to happen.
