    Lack of Hair Styles

    Can't take my infants or toddlers upstairs

    Lack of ease in creating multiple families

    Lack of a clothing store

    Lack of clothing styles

    Interactions are tedious and too trait specific (i.e. not everyone can massage their wives when they are pregnant)

    No cute hair styles at all for toddlers and children

    Life spans are too short for just the adult phase. They are guaranteed to be elders before their kids grow at all.

    Sims popping out random babies with no second parent

    Fully agreed. It scares me that sims can apparently asexually reproduce.

    My sim ALWAYS wants to massage his wife but he doesn't have the option (but occassionally his wife can massage him, but not always)...It's annoying

    I really hate how my sims just disappear into the car or into buildings.It just seems so lazy.I want my sim to open her own car door and I want to be able to control her when she goes into buildings.

    Error # 12 is the thing I hate the most. Oh, and the fact that sometimes I can't even hear the music because the Sims 3 doesn't run very good with realtek audio. Oh, and I don't like the hair styles very much. I only like 3 of em'.
    Actually, I hope they never make an expansion pack for the sims 3. I would rather just buy stuff from the store. That way, you can choose what you want, and you won't run up your computer's memory.

    You can check my blog for a list of all the stuff I miss 'bout the Sims 2.

    1 thing that bothers me about the Sims 3 is that when a sim is pregnant, they just have to wear JUST maternity clothing. They should be able to wear anything! Formal dress', Bikini's, all of the everyday tops and bottoms, etc.

    In real life pregnant women don't always wear maternity clothes!

    Please fix this EA. Add it in a patch or EP, I don't care, just please do it.

    ^^^ Agreed.

    The pregnant clothes issue has to be the biggest annyoing thing for me too. Even if you could just edit in create a style the everyday dress/horrible running outfit a little to change the colour and pattern, that might help things a little, but they always get stuck with the black or pink. Once I custom made a dress in that style and the pregnant woman wore it, but sometimes they don't, and I don't want to have to delete all the other pre-made outfits of that style forever just so that one pregnant sim will wear something I like. Very annoying!

    the 2 worst for me are
    1)age length is too short with no way to lengthen it
    2)the creativity skill has been broken down into Painting and guitar skills

    Just plant, grow, harvest and eat life-fruit.

    Also you can't customise what negihbourhoods you already have e,g. add trees and billboards, you also can't add empty lots you have to bulldose houses though i know thats to help population problems occuring.

    though what bothers me is... when i go on CAS my game crashes at some point so i've never actually been able to finish a sim and lastly the quality is bad and when i tryed to turn the quality up the screen went blue (i did restart the game) and you couldn't see anything and i only turn one thing to medium :(

    yeah that's definitely annoying... sims2 is better regarding tools such as stairs, neighborhood/lot design/placement, etc.

    they took it away though. gameplay is better as well as graphics and the angled zoom...

    but why develop a game and take away certain aspects that it's preceeding game, sims2, had??? i don't understand. :?

    Maybe it me not figuring this out on my own but I wish there were clothing stores! I hate having my kids grow up with ugly clothes, ugh! If someone knows if there is a way to get new clothes please let me know. I guess it's a good sign if I can't figure everything out on my own but I'm still wondering about this.

    I hate how long it takes to customize everything.
    Actually, I kinda love it!
    It's pretty incredible.
    And I could honestly spend 2 or 3 hours just customizing my Sims home!

    If you have a dresser, you can change any member of the family's clothes. If you choose "plan outfit" it will take your sim right into the clothes window and you will have access to all the clothes just like you do during "create a sim".

    I actually think this is an improvement on the sims2 clothing store; for one, you don't have to travel to a store, and two, the clothes are free. You can even plan up to three outfits per category (casual, dressy etc). Just have your kid go up to the dresser. I've even done it with babies, but I can't remember if I had the parents holding them, or if I just clicked on the dresser while I had them selected, try it out. :)

    Now if we could get some better clothes, the thing that bothers me is the men's jeans. They **** large. Most of them make the guys look like they are wearing bell-bottom floods from the 70's. 🐲🐲🐲🐲. And a lot of the guy's shirts are too short.

    I love this game to death, but the Number 1 thing that bothers me, is that there is only 1 game per neighborhood -_-

    I absolutely cannot stand how...
    When my sim lives in a large house, with more than 2 children,
    It takes the sim literally FOREVER to do whatever you tell the sim to do T.T"
    It's like...
    Ok the baby is starving, and needs a diaper change. But the mother sim WON'T react. I will tell her to do something, it literally takes her a whole sim hour to do it. Even if its just picking the child up! :shock:
    It gts frustrating, but it doesn't happen all the time.
