    When you enter edit town and try to place a house it takes to long it is epic becuase it takes mine like 40 min. to place one house and like 10 to rotate it.
    that's not the game..that's you Puter :D

    yeah, it takes my game about 7 minutes, and God forbid it to be rotated the wrong way. Add 5 minutes to that.

    Updates are wrong, people keep listing cheats that don't work, and moving objects between inventories causes the game to lag several seconds. And you can't choose a specific amount of objects from a stack to move.

    CC doesn't come with sims. We can't upload just the plain hair, only hair color.
    And it's not the uploader's fault that they want to use CC on their sims. A lot of people, such as me are quite fond of CC. :wink:

    I have a few:

    1. we can't build custom neighborhood.

    2. It takes a long time to change your active household, like you can't just click on it you have to go to edit town and click a bunch of stuff until you get there...

    3. the paint choices absolutely ****. they are all neutral colors, mostly browns.

    other than those its amazing! lol

    I would really like to have a larger selection of jobs: Actor, model, designer, teacher, architect, hairdresser etc

    acting requires your sim to gain more charisma, modelling requires your sim to stay in shape, designing requires an artistic sim, teaching needs logic and so on

    That objects spin in the catalog. It takes forever to wait for the front side of the object, ie a painting, to return. Hopefully they will get rid of the spinning, can't really think of many items we need to see from behind...

    You can use the style tool to change any paint into just any colour of the world :-) (You are not slow, I just found out myself today :D)

    Traits should by dynamic. If your sim is a good cook, but does no cooking for 4 days, why are they still a good cook afterwards? If I was a Virtuoso guitarist, then stopped playing for a year, I doubt i'd be just as good when I pick the guitar back up at the end of it.

    Similarly, if I practice loads on the guitar, then why can I not earn the Virtuoso trait? If I cook loads, why can I not gain the good cook trait?

    However, i'm fine with a limit on how many traits you can have. It would get a little too easy otherwise.

    no dating. I miss being able to actually have my sim have something to do at night besides a movie or a concert (that you can't see BTW)

    haha I love the game, except for one thing. I had a party ok and a lot of people came over. This one lady, she was kind of hefty and liked to have fun. Well her head and her legs were black and the rest of her was white. Like what is the deal with that!

    My speeds work just fine. It doesn't make me wait forever to get through a night.

    No animations for getting in and out of a car.

    Ditto for me too. And I'm pretty sure that if the kids want to go somewhere with a parent you have to take a taxi. What's the point of having a car if you have to take a taxi?

    No gardener!
    My main Sims have a huge garden full of crops, but their motives drain too much when tending it.

    If there was a gardener it would be so much easier, and when it comes for the fruit/veg to be harvested by the gardener, the produce could be stored in a family Sim's inventory.

    I wish. :lol:

    The clumsy physical interaction of Sims. It takes the equivalent of 10 minutes for them to manoevre into space to talk to each other. And another 10 minutes if they want to turn and talk to someone else. And God help you if they happen to get in each other's way - that's half the day gone.
