  • Agreed, I'd rather see Mac support before support for a device that's in its infancy. I'm not opposed to eventually adding support for the Rift though; I could actually see it being interesting if it contributed something new to the gameplay, such as giving me the ability to walk through my Sim's houses, (this could be…
  • While I did receive useful help from EA customer service back when the game was new, it took several calls, hours on hold, and multiple elevations in the tier of customer service before I got to someone who was qualified to deal with my issues. The only thing that infuriated me was when one tech read back a solution I…
  • This is probably the one advantage to taking pre–orders this far in advance; there are people who pre–order stuff and just forget about it until it shows up. I've done this before myself. On the other hand... Taking pre–orders this early in advance is usually a risky proposition. The system specs aren't even finalized yet,…
  • Aspyr did indeed acquire Westlake Interactive; some TS1 ports actually have an Aspyr logo on them, as do all EPs and Complete Collections of TS1. (The latter drops the Westlake logo entirely.) Asypr ported a portion of TS2, but EA refused to license additional EPs and SPs when they decided to "port" TS3 themselves, or more…
  • Hardly TRachet, I'll elaborate on this in the final quoted post, but Apple isn't losing customers. If you're looking at the stock price, that's something else entirely, and is ultimately not indicative of actual sales. (Case in point: Apple stock plummeted on a day when they reported record sales earlier this year.) With…
  • What do I want? Besides slightly better graphics, (and it looks like we're getting those anyway, despite what some seem to think,) I can think of several things that would have immediately piqued my interest. 1. The ability to pre–order the Mac version now. Seriously, I keep seeing articles saying that this is a PC/Mac…
  • I feel like this is being lost on people. The textures aren't finished, and without them, otherwise natural–looking things are going to look incomplete, rough, and yes, more cartoony than usual. Looking at the incomplete Sim from TS4, I honestly don't see much of a difference between the design of her and the Sim from TS3.…
  • In the immortal words of Charlie Brown, good grief! Are we really worried about the accuracy of the trailer? Seriously, trailers are almost always inaccurate regardless of whether they're for games, movies or something else entirely. Unless there's a disclaimer on the screen that says "actual gameplay footage," there's a…
  • Sign me up. It's ridonkulous that I'm having problems playing this game on a Mac Pro with 16GB RAM among other specs that far exceed the minimum system requirements. (And yes, I realize that the Mac Pro itself is in need of an update having not had a proper overhaul since 2010, but I'm playing a game from '09 on a Mac Pro…
  • Let's start with exactly what Lisasc360 just touched on. No "always–on" features, and no draconian DRM. I was all set to buy SimCity before EA forced these "features" on its players, and now there's no way that I'll spend so much as a penny on that game. If EA takes a similar route with The Sims 4, it'll be a no–sale for…
  • What's even more hilarious is that if that statement is true, EA is essentially telling people to use chips that will likely never exist! No consumer–level 4GHz chip has ever been produced, and attempts to create such chips resulted in the silicon actually melting. This is the entire reason Intel transitioned to muti–core…
  • Feel free to add my name to the list. I wish you the best of luck with this; for what it's worth, the petition that I started for the same thing is still linked to in my signature, although it's hardly been effective. Given that Cider emulates a Windows environment for TS3 to run on a Mac, I'm still having a hard time…
  • Crashing, especially crashing to the desktop while saving has been a major issue for me with The Sims 3.
  • BluebellFlora, To print a full screen in Windows, tap the "Print Screen/SysRq" key on your keyboard, and then open up MS Paint; you should be able to paste the screen grab here. (I definitely prefer working with grab in OS X though.) If you're running Windows on your Mac and don't have a "Print Screen" key, it should be…
  • This is a (no pun intended) apples to oranges comparison though. Macs have no problem playing games provided that games are properly coded in the first place. In fact, the Mac has several games available for it that one could consider "bug free," or at least free from any bugs that its Windows counterpart does not have as…
  • As a male, I actually have known both other males and females who have played The Sims, or some variation thereof; some of them even played the game together. It's one thing for them to all gather in a "communal" setting and pass a computer around the room, with each person contributing to the in–game narrative, but it's…
  • Both of the worlds that I'm working on (Yes, they're still in development,) are essentially "flat worlds." Alexville is being designed as a large flat world with the goal of using only base game and free promotional content throughout; Alexview is also being designed as a large flat world, but will be an "everything but…
  • Was able to use the UPS reference number after I noticed the other thread; the game should be here tomorrow. (Your order # is your tracking number; use the "Track by reference" option.) Still, no e-mail though, and I wouldn't have thought of this if it weren't for the person who posted the reference number thing.
  • No. I preordered the DVD version of the game from the Origin store and haven't receive shipping confirmation yet.
  • Yes, it will work; just buy a SL CD while they're still available. The newer Snow Leopard CDs come with OS X 10.6.3 on them instead of OS X 10.6, (the original "dot-zero" release,) which actually prevents several potential errors from occurring during installation. This a common practice for Apple, and I'm actually…

  • None at all, period, end of sentence; sorry. :( This is yet another reason in yet a long-list of reasons why I will never buy download-only software. (That includes OS X 10.7 "Lion," which I was all set to purchase until Apple decided to be stupid about making it a Mac App Store exclusive; I know other customers that have…

  • Breakfast 1. Omelets and/or scrambled eggs Lunch 1. Homemade Pizza 2. Burrito 3. Sub Sandwich (Don't think that this has been included yet) 4. Grilled Cheese (See above) Appetizers/Soups: 1. New England Clam Chowder 2. Ham Soup 3. Soup of Tuscany 4. Potato Skins 5. Fried Mozzarella Main courses: 1. Cheeseburgers, not…
  • If it's not too early for Microsoft/Bungie to announce a remake of HALO: Combat Evolved for 2014, it's not too early to start discussing TS4. 1. Native WIN/MAC versions! There's absolutely no excuse to continue using Cider for the Mac release. When planned for early on, it's quite easy to develop native WIN/MAC software.…
  • Why would you play TS2 on your other Mac? It's written for OS X, not OS 9. If you're talking about the difference between PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) and Intel, why not just download the Universal Binary (UB) from here: http://www.aspyr.com/software/news/6/31 Without the UB, the game runs through Rosetta; the PowerPC emulation…
  • If you downloaded the game it won't be compatible with your Mac; you'll need to repurchase everything that you already have. The DVD version is WIN/MAC compatible though, and it's SecuROM (Google it) free. If you have the DVD versions, just install off of the disc; the only problems you'll have are the ones that have been…

  • There are a couple of things that you can try, if you haven't done so already: 1. Repair your permissions: "Go" --> "Utilities" --> "Disk Utility" and then verify/repair disk permissions. 2. Invest in a cleaning disc; you can buy them at Staples for about $10 dollars. A CD lens cleaner works fine (there are ones for CD and…
  • This is the type of thing that has me preordering the EPs/SPs and then putting them in a drawer for a month while I wait for EA to fix the bugs that should've have been fixed at launch. To be quite honest, this is really annoying to put things kindly. When I buy a game/EP/SP, I expect it to function properly; a minor bug…
  • quote=julieexann]It seems that Jarsie09 is correct. I was under the impression that Maxis no longer had anything to do with the Sims. Will Wright willingly left EA a few years ago.[/quote] You are correct; Maxis' involvement with The Sims ended prior to the release of "Free Time." People need to understand the difference…
  • Origin is the store; I can see that just fine. What I can't see is my pre-order confirmation/invoice. The e-mail serves the same purpose though; it tells me that my pre-order was processed/confirmed/accepted. The game doesn't need to ship for a pre-order to be visible; I have things on pre-order all the time; I can always…
