    Gerbits, gerbits gooooooo Gerbits!

    I loved University in the sims 2 so I'm very excited that it will be back. The new rabbitholes look nice in the screenshots, but I saw one with mismatching ones too. I hope that the rabbitholes match so the campus doesn't look like clown vomit like most of the worlds do by default.

    oh! yuck!
    I would rather have open for business any day! since they copy Sims 2 and they should let people vote! the world Adventures is still not about vacations at all! I still hate it and I also wouldn't want a repeat UV. How about a vacation for my Sims to enjoy not fight battles-hate W.A. never use it! I want interactions with my kids like dance and did ballet actions stop? My kids don't perform anymore! UV, is a disappointment to me- why not vote?????? I want OPEN FOR BUSINESS! MAJOR THE SECOND BEST TO SEASONS!please be more in tuned to what customers want??

    Ahhh, yes, the "EA didn't make what I wanted them to make therefore they are out of touch with what players want" argument. A classic. Illogical, of course, but a classic.
    Many, many players have expressed a desire to have University return. This is their turn to enjoy an EP. Sit back, be patient, and wait for your turn. If the survey from a couple of months back is any indication, you may yet get an OFB expansion pack. Maybe not until 2014, but they ARE considering it.

    I'll be honest, I wasn't excited about University. I don't feel we need yet ANOTHER expansion pack that only Young Adults and Adults can use. But after seeing the trailer, seeing all the awesome things that are coming and hearing about others (open cafe? Comic book shop? Bowling alley?!?) and yes, seeing an elder with a cap and gown on, I am finally feeling some excitement toward this EP.
    I just wish EA hadn't bailed on the idea to allow child geniuses the opportunity to go to college ...

    Dear Gurus,

    If you guys read this thread, could you please take the time to explain how time is going to work in the new University sub-hood? I read on the Sims 3 Wiki (yes, I know until you officially say anything that everything is speculation, but hear me out), that time in the main neighborhood would continue to progress while a controllable Sim is in college, but at a much slower rate, unlike with the World Adventure Sub-hoods where time in the main neighborhood stops all together.

    Please, if you would be so kind as to debunk this or explain it, I would appreciate it. Looking forward to the new Expansion.

    ~~ Al

    I've heard that weather will work in the University world, so I guess time will run at a slower rate. I was hoping it would run like World Adventure, but oh well.

    Super excited! I enjoy all of the Sim 2 eps, but my fav. are Apartment Life, Seasons, and OFB. So to have Uni. coming to Sims 3 is super awesome! I can't wait, and it's good to see some old objects coming back as well. I was hoping that University was going be in the main world, but I guess not. I do use a mod in Sims 2 to make my uni. work in my main hood. I'm curious about aging as well and time. When you sim(s) graduates from school will they still be the same age as the sims that didn't go to college?

    First of all, does WA say World Vacations? No, it says World Adventures. I'm that kinda person who wants to do stuff instead of lying around doing nothing productive. It did explain it was all about adventures, not to sound mean or full of myself (Looking back it kinda does look like that... please don't take it the wrong way). And I'm sure lots of people had requested Uni, and who knows, maybe Uni can unlock gameplay that was exclusive to OFB, you never know until you try. I'm hoping it unlocks cool new careers!

    Aw, poor baby. Are you still mad because you thought you could pressure EA into making your precious Reality TV expansion pack by posting it as a done deal , and found out you couldn't?

    Anyway, you know the old saying:

    "Don't like it? Don't buy it!"

    (Sorry folks, but considering who is doing the pouting, I felt it had to be said).
    No, I'm not mad, I'm still glad for the others that wanted this EP.

    I really hope that Chinese takeout will come back too! It would be cool if they could also have other types of food to be delivered (Jamaican, Thai), but if its not in there, oh well, I'M JUST SO EXCITED FOR THIS EP!!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I really need to get out and go pre-order this! I just love the direction, quality and fun additions we have been getting lately!

    I am completely convinced that this new Uni will be as fun, if not more so, than the ts2 ep.

    Thank The Sims 3 Team! This looks great!!!

    I am looking foward to the EP, I don't think they are going to bring back Chinese food at pres. Which would really go with the study time in Uni.

    Omggg!!! You have NO IDEA how excited I am for this pack. I literally watch the trailer everyday *No life* I think it's because I'm going to college next year that I'm getting so pumped! Siiigh I really hope we can customize the backpacks and cells, that would be awesome. :lol:
