    In the new island paradise, will there be an option right at the start to be a mermaid life-state (like in the supernatural EP) or will you just have to find one in game to turn into one? Or is it both? :shock:
    Thanks, i am looking forward to this EP, i think it will be the best one yet! :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

    I am Just Waiting for the island, I don't want to run a resort, I just want to live on a island away from all the modern stuff, just like Cast Away without all the you have to do this to in order to be able to get that. I don't want to follow someone else story line. Please have coconut trees with real coconuts like Sims 2.

    Omg It's coming out in less then a month! My questions are:

    Can you make mermaids in create a sim, or do you have to find one?

    If you have to find then, where can you find them, and will it be like aliens in seasons, where you only see them once and awhile?

    And for the sharks, do they come often? And do your sims always/usually die?

    I think the mermaid tails are wayyyy too short and stumpy! Not graceful and pretty at all! :( Now I'm not sure I even want this expansion because, of course, what I really wanted it for was the mermaids. Still, I'm something of a completest (tho nothing will induce me to buy the Katy Perry EP!)so if I DO get it I am totally making an evil mermaid and calling her Serenade Siren! I will instantly send her off to all the WA destinations so I can teach her to sing! I really wish the evil Mermaids had Siren-like abilities to lure other Sims to them... before they call in the sharks! LOL THAT part I'm loving! :twisted:

    New blog up, everyone!

    SimGuruSarah talks about mermaids:
    http://www.thesims3.com/community/blog.html?blogid=505248

    The shells ARE lame. Even better than scales would be LONG HAIR that covers the breasts. But, shells or no shells, mermaids need LONG HAIR EA! Listen up for once about this!!!!

    Why do they NEED long hair? Where does it say mermaid SHOULD have long hair?

    Primarily because mermaids are traditionally described as having long hair and art featuring mermaids almost always shows them with long hair. After all where the heck are they getting scissors that won't rust out in the salt water? LOL OK sure in the Sims they're going to be able to walk around on land so I suppose they can visit the beauty shop. So can you make a mermaid with short hair? Of course. But not having the OPTION to give your mermaid long hair flies in the face of all mermaid lore and tradition so it SHOULD be an option.

    Oh and here are some examples from art:

    I don't see a lot of mermaids sporting short hairdos.

    My idea of an evil mermaid. :twisted: :twisted: Now give them longer tails EA! Those short stumpy tails you have going are LAME! :twisted:

    Are you really arguing with me over something so dumb? And your definition of "long" and mine are obviously two different things. My own hair goes down past my hip. THAT is long. There are no hairstyles in TS3 that even go all the way to the waist. NOT long. And don't even get me started on the Twilight-ification of the vampires in TS3. Grrrr.... :evil:

    This game is just awesome!!!!
    I can't wait to start playing it.:D
    But I have a question about the game.I wonder if you still can do normal jobs because in the tailer, walktrought, demo,..., you can't see they still are in the world. And can children and teenagers still go to school?

    mikamor2002 - mermaids cannot be killed by the kraken or the shark - they are immune - just like it was posted they can't drown either.

    All I have to say on this is most likely teens and kids will still go to school, because they always have and I doubt it will change ^.^ and also of COURSE they'll still have "normal" jobs (as in rabbit holes if that's what you mean) because you can do "normal" jobs in every other expansion so why not this one? :D

    Do you think eventually they will release a patch to allow the dogs to swim in the ocean? it could be pretty cute to be able to play "fetch" in the ocean and have the dog run and retrieve the stick or Frisbee from the ocean :)

    In the future, id be nice to have whales and dolphins added. Orca, bottle nose, right whale of humpback whales :)

    and as already mentioned, i would love to have surfing in the game, at some point, maybe even if it was in the sims store in the future
    If only my animals didn't look like demons o_o my animals have a really bad graphics glitch where they look all droopy and creepy :(

    Puregold - that tells me you need a new video card. As my animals look great with the Nvidia 560 ti card.

    Speaking of which I have asked my dad about that, but he says that my graphics card is connected to the motherboard or something so I really have no idea ^^
