Skyrim VR is about 1000x better than FO4 VR. While Skyrim VR is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, it's still very cool walking around, casting spells, shooting things with bows, etc. I turned on manual sneak, so I have to squat in order to sneak and stand to break it. You can sit down on the ground, lay back and watch the stars. What you can't do is see your body and there's no third person perspective at all. Still, it's an entirely new way to experience Skyrim.

  • (Quote) Their engine can't support everything is the problem. Sims 4 already has pretty bad problems with simulation lag, even on 64bit machines. For Sims 3, many of the issues weren't even engine related -- a lot of the lag was caused by bad routi…
  • With the disclaimer that I do not believe in spirits and am not willing to argue that point, isn't a familiar just a spirit embodied in an animal meant to guard and protect? That wouldn't necessarily be dark. But there really isn't anything dark in …
  • (Quote) NRaas Traffic allows you to limit or remove them.
  • What's odd to me about only one hat is I get the feeling they made a knitting pack without talking to people who actually knit. Or they figured that since knitters aren't their audience (LOL) that it didn't matter what is the most common thing that …
  • Only one hat and no socks. Wow. I feel so invalidated as a knitter! My sims will be the first knitters I've ever heard of that don't do fairly regular donations to hospitals and homeless shelters because there are just so. many. hats.
  • (Quote) @Sk8rblaze A few, IIRC. First, it forced me to have origin running, which may not bother all people but I didn't like it. It also incorporated a less-stable version of SimGameSelect30, and would always deselect all my packs and I would hav…
  • Personalities Diving spots which aren't rabbit holes Bunkbeds and lofts Futons More emotions: fear, creeped out Sims being able to do things together a bit, well, better
  • (Quote) I do play it on a laptop. But it's a gaming laptop. It's amazing how much they've improved over the past few years. At least some laptops offer full-sized graphics cards instead of stripped down ones (mine does). My CPU is not as strong as …
  • (Quote) Honestly, if that's the only one you need, I'd jsut do a reinstall without it and wait for ITF to go on sale -- amazon often has Sims 3 stuff for cheap. I know it's a waste, but at the same time, 1.69 breaks the game so badly.
  • I run Sims 3 on a notebook. Granted, it's a fairly powerful notebook. The disadvantage of running Sims 3 on a completely modern machine is you do have to do some work before hand to get it to recognize your GPU, and it may not recognize your CPU eit…
  • (Quote) I'm not sure. I had some Sims 3 moments that stuck with me that could be done in Sims 4, but there would need to be a lot more depth to the personalities. For instance, one time I had a young adult sim marry Matthew Hamming -- I didn't kno…
  • Hmmm, a couple of games pop to mind. Luigi's mansion and, maybe more germane, Sims 3 World Adventures if your computer can handle it. You can build a house with hidden keys and such, and there are three worlds that have tombs with puzzles going from…
  • A gaming laptop with a cooling fan should be fine. But the more you run it, the more often you need to blow all the dust out. I hope you recover soon.
  • (Quote) Yikes, you were being serious. I doubt you'll see this, but JIC, it was not my intent to offend. I honestly didn't see your comment as serious. Good luck to you!
  • (Quote) Now I'm wishing for that "LOL" button back! *grin* Edit: Have a fantastic evening or day or morning depending on your time in the world.
  • (Quote) I didn't say that you were being nonsensical -- the whole trying to change the button's meaning was nonsense, not you. I'm just sorry you brought it up given that people are using the button the way it is supposed to be used. I'm glad the w…
  • (Quote) ROFL! I will take that to mean it was full of information you did not know! <3 Edit: I really am sorry that whole nonsense was brought up again. It was so long ago and it was just a small group of people trying to troll. Given that thei…
  • (Quote) No. Quick history lesson on this: A few years ago, the forums had a "zabadoo" button meaning "disagree." You can image how well this went over and it didn't last long. THEN we had a LOL button, and this was clearly used…
  • In Sims 4, become an archaeologist. Indiana Jones, eat your heart out.
  • I'm not sure that it's really about the hot tub, per se. I think people are feeling unappreciated as fans, and add to that internet mob mentality, and things have blown up. I honestly expected nothing. People have forgotten, apparently, about what …
  • All you have to do is click on someone's name to see. I look at my numbers and I realize I've probably posting way too much in controversial threads ;) Edit: NVM ROFL!
  • (Quote) I think HIS comment, the first one, about the body shaming, was 100% inappropriate. I didn't see the comment in reply so much as aimed towards him as EA so yeah. All I know is as angry as people are, they really need to be very careful just…
  • (Quote) I'm not. I've repeatedly said that the post wasn't good. That doesn't mean that the quote they were replying to was okay. Because that also was not. And the difference is one of those comments was coming from an official company account whe…
  • (Quote) But at that point, it was clear they were talking about EA, not the gurus. As in, "EA, the company that was voted..." Edit: Again, I am NOT saying the comment was okay. I do not think it was. But I also think his first comment wa…
  • (Quote) But at that point, it was clear they were talking about EA, not the gurus. As in, "EA, the company that was voted..."
  • (Quote) No, they did not. They brought up that EA (not the gurus) was voted most hated company along with Weinstein's company (and another I won't name here). I'm not saying it was a great comment (it was not) but come on. And it was after the bod…
  • Planet Zoo I think paid a lot of gaming youtubers to cover them. The funniest ones were the Civilization 6 youtubers -- their approach was so much different than the Sims youtubers. Most of them all kind of failed miserably, though the Simmers reall…
  • (Quote) The funny thing is I don't even care -- I'm certainly not part of the angry mob. I don't have even have Origin installed on my machine atm, much less Sims 4. I just don't really see the "shame on you and EA" comment as personal wh…
  • (Quote) Okay, first of all, he's on a work account so representing EA. But second, the Sims itself prides itself on diversity, but then a member of the team, speaking from a company account, falls into making a comment that could easily be seen as …
  • (Quote) Given that that "shame on you" is directly after his "don't body shame my flops" comment, it's hard to say what he's being "shamed" for with the following comment. His first comment was awful -- the type of mo…
