Game Update for: 1.15/2.10/3.6/4.3
« on: 2010 September 07, 08:14:14 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

This game update includes:

New Features

         Sims that drive extensively can now develop a relationship with their vehicles.  Vehicles can be named once a friendship is formed.

         The Vehicle Enthusiast Trait is now available.  Sims with this trait can name their vehicles immediately and develop relationships with them more quickly.

Base Game Updates

         Fixed an issue where ghosts could become stuck in vehicles under certain conditions. Ghosts will now properly exit vehicles after arriving at their destination.

         Nameable items can only be named when they belong to the active household.

World Adventures Updates

         Career titles for Sims visiting Egypt, France and China will now display in the Relationship Panel tooltips.

The Sims 3 Create a World

         Create a World users need to install a new version of The Sims 3 Create a World Tool.  Users can find the Create a World page from the "Games" drop down in the site header.
end of cut n paste

I wonder what this update will break.  Roll Eyes

I'm torn on this.  It's 50/50 sad & lame vs kind of cute.

No kidding. I've been a car enthusiast my whole life, to the point of being involved in various basic grassroots-level racing, but I've never understood the desire to give a vehicle a name.
 
For such a seemingly minor patch, I wonder why a revision of CAW is required? Is there something else going on under the hood of this car-themed patch/SP? (bad pun, I know)

My cars had names: Vampmobile (after my HS nickname), Shitmobile (piece of shit car that broke down on me constantly), and Sexmobile (for "Sexy Beast", a crappy movie that I loved the title of). However, I've never formed a friendship with a car. That's beyond lame.

My sister isn't into cars at all, but every car she's had has had a name. With the exception of the last car that was always breaking down, and that she was sure had a personal vendetta against her. I think she just named her new car (a Hyundai Accent) 'Stardust'. I remember her really, really old Honda Accord (1980 I think) was named Tortuga.. and that suited it. But she's seriously not a car person. She prefers mass transit when possible.

But the way the call it a 'relationship' totally makes me think of the 'My Car is My Lover' docu on youtube. Naming an object and liking or not liking it is different from considering it to be a 'friend'. Naming is cool, but I'd like to see the car in the relationship panel stomped.

My car has a name. And while I absolutely love it and am careful about where I park it and spend a decent amount of time making sure its cleaned and has nice accessories, that's more due to the fact that its a pretty good car for my income, and that it cost me about 80% of my savings. I would never consider it a friend, it's a decently reliable way to get from A to B. I still take transit most of the time to avoid the hassles of driving, so the car just sits in the parking lot for weeks on end. The whole driving lots = friend with car = naming it thing is just more EAxian logic.

It's not all too farfetched. You're forgetting that not only is it the sims (so it's exaggerated), but it's also specifically supposed to be super hardcore car enthusiasts. You might not name your car or have a personal connection to it, but people who are really, really into cars usually do.

I think it's a cute humorous extreme, the kind of thing The Sims is adored for.

This actually creeps me out. The picture of a dood banging his cars exhaust keeps popping up in my brain. And yes, people do name their cars i real life, but as some have pointed out, The Sims is not real life. What is the pourpose for naming the car in the game? Could the sim take it out for a night on the town, maybe have some dinner and catch a movie? I am seriously perplexed about this. To me, it is even less interesting than doing laundry.

Oh wait, Claeric thinks that EA did the right thing (without providing a coherent argument beyond "there are surely some people somewhere who does this, EA RULEZ), despite numerous arguments to the contrary? Impossible. I am shocked, I tell you. Shocked.

EW, DNW on the relationship with yo ride deal. A name I can understand - some people also name their powertools. But an actual relationship? WTF is up with that, and HOW is that adding anything (that isn't lame and pathetic as fuck) to gameplay, or anything to anything, really?

EW. CREEPY. DNW.

My previous car was given a name by my brother. Hoover. That dam car sucked so much it was deserving of the name. Otherwise, a car is a car - a way to get between point A and point B.

Oh, wait. I already did. A: It creeps me out because of the wild imagery in my head, and B: I find it to be irrelevant to my interests. What is your reason?

My truck has a name, named after a dead friend of mine, they share some similarities. My best friend has named nearly every car but the last one and I don't even trust her to really maintain a vehicles health. The one before this one was named Stella, due to the car phone. An older car doing it's groove thing. The one before was Hilde. Although this friend has also named the big skull patch on her purse. The relationship thing seems to be going too far though, I have named my truck, and have an attachment to it, but it's still a truck, we aren't buddies. Now if they added the ability to name your Sims computer tower I would be all over that. I'd be pretty fucking distraught if something happened to mine.

It's a truly STUPID "upgrade" (if you want to call it that) but if you decide to ignore it will you constantly get the message asking if you want to install it anyway?

And what about later when an important update comes along?

It won't fuck up any neighborhoods we already have with Awesomemod if we go ahead and just install it?

I remember in Sims 2 people made car bodies much better than the ones in this pack coming up and gave them away from free.  I mean that's all it is. New shells to go over the existing cars...except EA expects people to pay for them.  Big Whoop

Using your link, I get "OOPs - page not found"

I searched yesterday and today (8 hours ago) on the EA sites (US and UK). Not a mention of a new patch.

I am in UK, maybe it is only currently available to US. Just guessing.

EDIT. That is the case. I changed my language from "English - UK" to "English US"  and your link worked.
Guess you US guys and gals are the beta testers. Have fun.

If I remember correctly, US is region 1 and UK+ is region 2. Although that became a bit obscure with the release of Ambitions.

The UK should get it tomorrow. I suppose they figured you guys didn't need it because the SP doesn't come out until then for you. Region 1 is listed as English. Region 2 is World wide. I don't think there really is a difference other then the language install options. My base and WA are region 2.
