That behavior is controlled under "Story Progression". However, if you stop playing your current fambly, you forfeit all your current want progress, and possibly godknowswhatelse. All in all, the game is not well tailored for multi-fambly play...and you are utterly hosed if you are trying to do something in two fambys simultaneously!

It doesn't really sound like I'll be leaving TS2 for this, but I'm certainly intrigued enough to give it the old college try.

Again, what proofs do you have that this is an early beta/alpha version? You're spreading that both here and at the BBS, under your SBlade handle. You wouldn't be spewing rumors, now would you?

As you can see by PM, I speak of something Ive tested it myself. If this isnt a Beta, this is the biggest shit Ive ever seen.

PM, shmee M. You linked to the Demonoid torrent page. The one that lists it as "full game". The one I also downloaded. Nothing on the page you linked mentioned anything about it being a demo. Not one comment, and I went through all 206. So your point?

Notice that I'm not arguing that it's the biggest shit you've ever seen. It's up there on my list. I'm keeping my list of gripes until I've had a couple days to play through.

Parrot, I haven't been taking a lot of pics and none of the UI or popups. I'll get on that. Here's a couple in-game. Notable is that game pic sizes are defaulted at 1024x768 and there are no thumbnails taken. Also, I'm at highest graphic settings:

@IAmTheRad and cklayne, and anyone else who either lacks reading comprehension skills or has a limited attention span:

Selective reading = fail

I know it's hard for some folks, especially some noobs, but for pity's sake, READ THE WHOLE THREAD.  Asking questions that have already been answered and making comments that show you stopped reading at a certain point is tres annoying, and serves to solidfy your appearance of stupidity.

This is not the BBS.

I have read the whole thread, thanks.   Wink

From what I've gathered, here and other places, you can *technically* play more than one family, but by doing so you forfeit all progress.  I was simply asking for clarification on this, not asking anyone to preform brain surgery or learn rocket science.  Yes, I made an account (actually, I had one previously, but was usually in lurk mode and apparently lost it in some house cleaning) to ask a question.  Shock and horror!  Tongue

You seem to have the gist of it, n00b.  If you require further clarification, I suggest arr'ing it yourself.

Well it appears your houses can be subject to random acts on move in. My house was on an indian burial ground, meaning 3 ghost sims where on the lot. You can interact with ghosts as normal sims it seems, but what annoys me is that they use the house appliances. The fire death ghost made dinner and burnt it. I forsee fire!

A lot of the animations are copy+pasted from TS2, I only saw a couple of new ones and they looked odd and jolty in comparision to the others. There also seems to be contact problems with objects and sims, so there are air gaps in interactions. This happened in TS2 as well though. The fights were short (a few sim mins), but it seems that if your sim does have 'performs well in a fight' traits it actually works and they win more, not awesomeware, but it's better than totally random.

In fact my general opinion is: like TS2 but not as good.

Continuing Impressions:
1. Sims in TS3 are just not as good-looking at their TS2 equivalents. Yes, they are more detailed. Yes, you can trick them out in ways that you can't really do with TS2 sims. But they're still ugly. And this is coming from someone who *ISN'T* a heavy CC user: I basically use EAxis default skins, EAxis default eyes. But the fact of the matter is, TS3 sims are just ugly. Why? I am not qualified to say. They just ARE. It took very little effort, even for someone with my complete lack of artistic skills, to throw together a sim that looked passably like someone familiar, or at least, wasn't ugly. I have spent an hour fiddling with the damn thing, but nothing I do produces something other than a pudgy, doughy-faced, slopey-foreheaded ape.

That's why I'm lukewarm at best about buying TS3.  All the other content and comparisons between the two games really make TS3 look a lot more impressive than TS2, and then I see the sims themselves...

They don't have any personality.  The faces don't have any character.  They're just spheroids with faces stamped on them.  There's no distinct definition to any of them.

Zazazu, those are some fugly ass sims.
The skin tones are flat and react oddly to lighting. Also, you have no sliders for facial features. You can only choose from a limited number of noses, eyes, etc, though things like hair color and eye color give endless possibilities. All the sims are fugly. In her defense, she was making a face in the second picture.

Question for Zazazu: Are the sims naturally chubby, or did you make her that way? Can you change their weight to begin with?
I made her that chubby. She's slightly over the midpoint on the weight slider, no muscle tone. You can definitely edit both in CAS.

I thought there were supposed to be sliders? I could have sworn there was something in a review of the game about easily-customized facial features. Sad

There's sliders to customize face pieces its a tab next to the templates.

Anyone seen the "teach toddler to walk" animations yet?  They are seriously messed up.  The hands don't connect proper to the toddler at all at any point.

Also they seem to pull all baby and toddler food out of their ass.  Although i'd call that an improvement no running across the house to the fridge to grab a bottle of milk or bowl of mush.  Toddlers also finally sleep like normal sims so they don't need to take 10 naps a day.
