    I guess I coule say that the most unpopular thing that I do not like is a world with to many of the same lots, like 3 bars, etc. 2 or 3 beaches. I find that more sims vist the lot if there is only one of them. One bar everyone visits, etc. I like large words, but I like playing in small worlds as the large worls seem to be to busy for me. I like nice cozy towns, I do like lots for my sims that are 40x40, I do not like supernatural. Oh yes the one thing I hate is someone who adds a world to the exchange and it is night. can't see what it is really like. Oh well with that said, I love the Sims 3. I guess it is nice that we can all play and build, and download the things that we like, Isn't that nice. what a game, all these years and I am not tired of it yet. Have fun with your sims.

    MERMAIDS are overrated. Man, they took hours to reach a destination by swimming..

    I don't like being stuck in the same world. I'd much rather have it be like Sims 4 where you can visit any world you want without erasing current relationships.
    With out mods that isn’t possible in sims 3 but I’d you aren’t against mods there’s a few Such as traveler that allows this.I send my sims all over 🤪

    I really love (most) Supernatural sims. Especially vampires and witches but I've had a lifelong fascination with them. First EP I got for TS3 was Supernatural. I love them mingling with regular sims in suburban environments. I love the escapism of it. I also wish the more dark or gothic elements of the game were more dingy/grungy as opposed to elegant. I want my vampires hanging out in dingy bars, not big extravagant dance halls or lounges. Think I've read Lost Souls a few too many times

    I don't like playing with (young) Sims children and Sims toddlers (I only play with young adult Sims or adult Sims). I also don't like the high maintenance friendships in the Sims. Within a short period you already get the message "that Sim is not your friend anymore". So I always purchase the lifetime award distance friend. Of course I don't mind friends but I got stuff to do and they ask to much attention. I also dislike the welcome to the neighborhood part: I want to introduce my Sims when I'm good and ready not when the game decides because I'm always busy when they come. I also dislike the meaningless phone calls: can you come to my party, sorry you missed it, and so on. Almost every call my Sim get that has nothing to do with chances I tend to find useless and never a good time (because, again ;),my Sim is busy or sleeping).

    @SimLibby Forgive me for just now seeing this, but ^Oh my gosh YES!!! (In bold) I feel that way too! :smiley: First thing I do is cheat to get that "Long Distance Friend" reward, EVERY time!

    I also don't play much with babies, toddlers, or children...but not because I don't want to. I just prefer to write (or imagine) stories that mostly involve adults.

    I never minded the "welcome to the neighborhood" sims appearing at my sim's door (got used to that playing Sims 2) but yeah the meaningless phone calls can be a bother at times, especially if your sim was/is busy.

    I very much dislike the welcome wagon and always make certain my Sims are not at home when it comes time for them to show up >:)!

    I have a different view of the friendship mechanics and never really saw it as 'high maintenance'. Anyone who makes it to the friends list (good, best or BFFs), are the ones whom my Sims have chosen to pursue a relationship with, everyone else remains an acquaintance until they drop off of the list. My active Sims will autonomously call whom they want to talk to (or send up some sort of related wish such as 'spend time with' or 'cook favorite food for'. On the other side, their friends will call them to hang out or, stop by the house to hang out or have a meal. There is always an autonomous level of socialization going on in addition to the things I do with them as a whole.

    When it comes to life stages, I like them all from infant to elder and do not rush any timelines. The hardest Sims for me to play are the YA who have been created in CAS because they are basically infants with abilities and require a lot of time to (help) develop.

    I actually think Island Paradise is a great expansion! Most don’t like it for the lag but I don’t get anymore lag than I do with any other expansion
