Post Re: The Sims is to be "dramatically" changed
Hmm...sounds like the sims themselves like it says. I'm thinking a little more realistic as in, height, breast, hips, waist, behind, arm, legs, neck, shoulder sliders perhaps? The Sims have never had height or to be able to exactly create the character realistically (I don't mean anatomically correct with those details when I say realistic either, I'm sure the sims will remain T forever and I prefer it that way). Also the LN trailer, if it is true that EA is going to give us more freedom to express our creativity as in sliders for breast size and other options would make sense. It's something that has not been done yet and to me, that would be a drastic change. But it's just my speculation until EA actually confirms what they mean by the sims will change drastically.

I think it quite obviously has to do with what Rod Humble said that people would see behind closed doors at yesterday's conference: "We're taking Sims through space and time." or something like that.

Oh, I didn't hear/see of any conference so I'm just speaking in the dark. I guess so then. Do you have a link where I could read about it?

I don't have anywhere where you can read it, but I do have a link to a stream of it at GameSpot. It's in the beginning shortly after he brings Rod Humble on to stage. Here.

Nothing much is said beyond what I said, though.

Thanks. I wonder does that mean outer space on different planets such as the moon. Maybe this will be the 4th EP or later. Also it would make sense with the astronaut career. Aliens may be introduced this way.

I wonder if he's talking about EPs or the planning of games later in the franchise.

Really, hm, I wonder what they could mean by that. For some reason that makes me miss memories from The Sims 2.

Hmmm, without hearing the statement myself it sounds to me like they are going to let us use the time machine for real and not as a rabbit hole. I think it would be easy to do. They have three vacation destinations right now, so I think they could give us three time travel destinations. Say the medieval one which would go along with the reported rumors. Maybe one set in the future something like Star Trek, or a dome on the moon, and for a third one, maybe a cowboy theme where we would get some animals too.

Wow, you know, that is the first thing I read that actually clicked; you could absolutely be right about this! The time machine might be like a little hint at what they're working on.

I hope this whole adding time/history brings back memories. I miss the memories from Sims 2.

Before I got Sims 3 I was always thinking about how cool it would be to see what my other sims got up to when I wasn't playing them....but it's kinda hard to know what they're up to if they don't have memories...unless you actually see them in the neighborhood while they're doing it. :sad:

I'm thinking the adding "history" to the sims makes it sound like you can choose what time period for your neighborhood to be in, and technology, how sims act and what they're able to do changes depending on the time period you choose. As well as graphical changes...

Dramatically change the Sims?

I would say it would be a big change if you could play as a sim. It other words you don't direct the sim, you are the sim.

I don't think I would like that though.


That's exactly what I was thinking. It would be much harder to control more than one sim though. :/

The whole timeline thing sounds pretty legit, or the month/year thing. They could definitely add seasons and weather if they chose to do that as well. I miss that Sims 2 EP...

I don't really get this, you'll always be "controlling the sim" you'll never "be" the sim unless you create a copy of yourself and even then you still won't be the sim anymore than you already are.

Even if you were the sim you'd still direct it though...

I don't think it would be that interesting a change, they'd be better off making the next generation bigger like a country and getting rid of rabbitholes completely. They have something pretty good going on with Sims 3 atm it's just not perfect. No doubt they'll have to innovate and make a mess though. :(

Controlling a sim directly isn't a 'dramatical' change, as that was done before in the console version of TS2 (I think)....

As for the new approach to sims, its all too missiony and objectivy for my liking, which is why i'm back on ts2 for now ;]
