  • I'd say it's pretty close. Tick tock.
  • "Has an avatar that antagonizes sims 4 fans" I've explained why there's no "antagonising" going on here. After being offered the explanation, interpreting it as anything other than how it's been explained is entirely up to you. If the sky's purple or magenta in your world, have at it. "Admits that he does this for…
  • I think you're missing the validity and reasoning behind acts of peaceful protest, of which this is. It's not about you, so there's no need for you take it personally. If I had found TS2 or TS3 to be as lacking for me personally as I found TS4, I'd do the same. It's merely a visual representation of opinion. There's no…
  • @Triplis And I agree with your main point (as per your final sentence). Absolutely. However, the inability to communicate effectively is a huge problem in these forums, and, generationally, has been worsening for quite some time. We now have a whole generation of individuals who have never had respectful and direct…
  • Nonsense. A spade is a spade. The reason the people I refer to behave the way they do is purely because they adhere to said mindset. Calling a spade a spade is not disrespectful. We are all capable of self-examination. Some of us choose to practice it and some of us don't. Now if you were to have accused me of…
  • See here's the thing. The avatar shouldn't irritate you. It's not a personal attack. It's my personal expression, which I've explained around here numerous times, that I believe the series has devolved too much, beginning with some TS3 design decisions. What you fail to see is that only the 4 is crossed out. Not "The…
  • Mendota, I wasn't referring to you. But you've just gone and lumped yourself into the group I'm commenting about, by way of your post. Also, don't project and don't inject meaning. I mean exactly what I said, and no more. I'm tired of this emotional irrationality ruining forum experiences. You obviously did not grasp the…
  • Why have people spent twelve pages arguing against people who are wilfully ignorant, narrow-minded and deliberately dismissive of anything not representative of their own shallow and unaccepting mindset? It seems rather a waste of time and energy to me.
  • That's a better explanation. Thank you. Hopefully the feedback on the rest of the base game serves the same diligence for the next version of the game. That is, if TS4 has made enough money to warrant one. Because frankly, the toddlers look brilliant. They look like they were created thoughtfully, lovingly and diligently.…
  • Which part warranted your "no" comment? Was it "free", "toddlers" or "because of their...feedback" ???? Were they always planned to be released in a free patch, two years and a quarter after the original date of release? Did the boycotts and constant feedback and negative publicity have no effect on the decision making…
  • ^^Or, more likely, every litte step was poorly considered and the consequence is the consistent irritation. If you only half consider a concept, it will always eventuate to be only a quarter of its possibility at a maximum. Think through something and you might hit as high as eighty percent possibility.
  • It started with TS2. Start a new empty town, place one lot and move a family in. Build them up a little, then place a new lot and add a new family. Build community lots appropriate to the families living there, then keep expanding the story. It was great fun playing that way, since the story of each individual family…
  • In direct response to the original topic: I stopped playing for two simple reasons. 1: I felt the game was rubbish. 2: I felt the game, as it was released, was an insult to all of the people who had supported the series with their purchases, since its inception. I felt the game was rubbish because it was dumbed down,…
  • I would like to recommend that people ignore the baiting in this thread. Until then it was a good source of information from different players who thought the game failed them. Now it's cat and mouse. Please go back to the topic.
  • Oh I agree. It was the poster's tone I was more referring to. The same three posters continually display their irrits in this way.
  • I think you should stop poking people with a stick for holding a different opinion to your own.
  • Because parrots.
  • That ship has long sailed. :lol:
  • Ohfertheluvva......When will these developers stop stripping their own history? We used to have Versailles. Now we have Barbie Dream House. WHAT exactly are we "ruling" here? The Sims Lite.
  • ^^^This has all been covered. Including the over-assumption of the legality of it. Modern common practice does not negate the ownership of the original media, which the owner, (in this case EA), could demand removal of, should it not fit acceptable fair use policy. Which a petty smear attempt (as the edits to the post have…
  • ^^^Or it's an open forum where someone is able to tell their own side as they see fit.
  • I think SimsVIP charges for their game "guides", IIRC.
  • ^^ So what exactly are you saying here? Because we've already covered the fact that fair usage dictates that it can be applied without permission. We've also covered that any rights holder has the right to call to account any usage that claims to be "fair use", despite the intentions of the reproducer. Your link and quote…
  • @To7m Well said. Bravo.
  • Actually, there is no limit to the length that can be used under fair use terms. See http://cmsimpact.org/resource/fair-use-frequently-asked-questions/ for confirmation. However, citing under fair use terms is still a technical breach of copyright/ownership of IP, until X amount of time post death of the creator. I want to…
  • No you're absolutely right about fair use. I use Sims logos on my site under fair use, with the disclaimer they are, and remain the property of EA. I think in this situation it's a little different. Say X person was on Y public TV network saying "oranges are green" and I wanted to dispute that, or ridicule that person. I…
  • ^^And perhaps what's happening underneath all of this is EA's realisation of their limited use, as pointed out by you not recognising them. They only have very limited reach. It was a deal not well thought out, IMO.
  • @cameronw209 Your post is a perfect example of why we should all hold each other in as high regard as we should expect to be held. Well said. @Felicity Thanks for that link. It's a great summary. I think in a case like this it would fall under commentary IF the article (for want of a better word) wasn't slanted with bias…
