So you can't swim in the ocean?

Am I doing something wrong? When I click on the ocean the only thing I can do is fish... To me there is no point in having an ocean if it isn't swim-able. I hope it gets added in an EP. :(

    I think that the beaches in general are lacking a lot of potential interactivity that could make them awesome.

    I agree. In Bon Voyage you could do many things on the beach lots Ex. comb for seashells, make sandcastles, sun bathe, swim in the ocean... Now the ocean itself looks better, but the options are very limited.

    the water looks amazing now and can't swim in it - this waiting thing is hard...just got the game and already wishing for certain things to be available.

    maybe i am just too spoiled from all the different things available in sims 2...

    i want to go on vacation/visit secret lots/control businesses/etc.

    I noticed this earlier.... their was a neighborhood BBQ-athon ...thing... anyway I took my Clements family down and had them make hot dogs for everyone (opportunity) and then I wanted to have them sit on the beach and build a sand castl together but it wasnt there :(

    Hubby wanted to make his athletic sim swim in the ocean and we found out (After he had his sim jog across town to the beach) that that option isnt there.

    Im hoping for the interactions to come back (+ some) in the first expansion! :)

    The game has only been around a few days. It can't have everything from the beginning.

    Yeah but again this points to an expansion pack. It will likely be added later when some sort of environment/outdoor activity expansion pack comes along.

    I agree, mostly because I like throwing parties in the Sims 3 and I wanted to have a beach party but then I remembered you can't swim in the beach, so that made me mad. I hope in the next Expansion pack or Stuff pack they give us the opportunity to let us swim in the ocean!

    Really?

    Now that the game has been out and we are nearing the last EP I do hope these options are added. I'd also like to be able to have my sims go farther out in the "ocean" to fish. Like up to the knees. Catch bigger fish when they do this.

    Scuba diving would be fun like they had the tank way back when.
    Yep there is still so much that we'd like to have.

    EA are you listening??

    I don't understand why people get so worked up about "resurrecting" a thread, and then commenting like "do you even know how this thread is?!" It's ironic, no? Sure, I'm even doing it now ... ._.

    And So what - it may have helped them with something.

    I know but resurrecting threads that are things like 'look! I killed Bella!' in my point of view is kinda stupid because it is long gone news. + sims addiction : I never knew it was the last ep ,, :( I'm upset now I'm crying ( well not really I just hav a cold so I have a runny nose and watery eyes) do you think ey will release the sims 4 soon?

    It's not the last but we are getting close, "rumors" figure there will be only 2 more eps.

    I find it funny that people complain about resurrecting an old post almost as bad as they do posting about something that's already been posted.

    I would also like to add pets swimming in ocean and dogs catching fish.

    Most agree there will be 10eps and 10sps, so that would make it three more EP's to come and 4 more SP's (inclusing KP sweet treats) :D
