    OMG that looks like a guy I dated years ago (no lie). Is his name Rocky?? hahaha

    Where does that guy live? :p

    (Never mind, too far probably and I'm too young. And human creatures rarely equal sims perfection)
    I'd like to know as well :D He's probably too old for you and too young for me :p

    I started to play the sims (3) only last year, at the time I was not aware that there's a newer version :open_mouth: so it's nice to hear that the sims 3 is still relevent and it's not just me:)

    No, it's not just you. :D I bought Sims 3 after the announcement of Sims 4.

    And to the OP, welcome back. B)

    The pudding faces can be pretty bad... but, to me, Sims 3 sims are much more unique and pretty/goodlooking.

    Yep, that's what I love about TS3. If I want pudding face, I can have it. Or if I want realism... I can get as eerily detailed as I want. O.o which I looooove btw. lol.

    But with TS4 everything is plstic-y and doll-looking. Idk I feel like the sims look more like puddy in this iteration, but their interactions make up for it. It's a bummer I can't edit the Gfxrules file on TS4 to my liking.... Everything turns black. :/

    Seriously? It really baffles me the amount of time people who supposedly love and are so engrossed in TS4 have to write comments like this when someone is just posting their opinion!

    Well you have seen my other thread and they are all bragging about how many likes they (the ones who oppose me) get compared to me on their replies and yet in this thread, I am actually getting likes as well with my witty come back.

    Sorry to go off topic but I am sick of being bashed for liking TS3 across the forums but again I will say welcome back to The Sims 3, OP and I hope you enjoy being part of our community as well :smile:

    That's because adding a skin isn't enough, you'll also have to pull some sliders ;)

    I feel like sims 4 is much too easy and nothing interesting happens. I guess the vampire game pack made it better but now I'm ONLY interested in the vampires..

    I think the majority of players left there are the ones liking Sims 4 and hating Sims 3, so yeah, anti Sims 3 will get more likes there. So? Doesn't make those opinions right ;) (I'm baffled by the 'bragging' part by the way, it sounds utterly insecure to me, as does the attitude shown on page 1 here; but it's all fine by me, let everyone enjoy the game(s) they like playing)

    Ill be honest, i hated the sims 3 when they first came out because they looked weird to me (Avid Sims 2 Stan), but recently in the last couple of years I've been obsessed. Amazon had an amazing sale and now i just about own every expansion and stuff pack for the sims 3. Im just missing two stuff packs. The sims 4 is a bit shallow to me so i always go back and play the sims 2 and 3. The best editions to date!

    I got sims 3 after reading all that was missing from sims 4. I was so upset about it as I wanted to go from sims 2 to sims 4 as I was honestly not a fan of sims 3 at that time. But I felt like I had to move on to next sims game since I was anticipating sims 4 for so long. Luckly sims 3 grew on me pretty quickly, I could really expand my gameplay with cc and mods just like with sims 2. Sims 4 stayed a dissapointment :<

    Yeah, I don't blame you. The Sims 4 is okay, but they should sell it for 40-60 dollars and make it include The Sims 3 and all it's expansion packs if they want it to sell very well.

    I know that's why I peaced out of that thread. They're like a pack of angry sharks, one smells blood and the rest go in for the kill :D

    And I get it completely, you literally cannot even bring up TS3 on that side of the forums without someone jumping down your throat. You could be saying as little as "I wish this feature from 4 was more like it was in 3" and they go insane! I feel like there's really no safe place to share feedback on the newest game. It sucks.

    And them bragging about how many likes they get is ridiculous and just shows their immature nature, don't worry about it king :) It's funny though because if they took a look at any site outside of the forums, the dissatisfaction definitely outweighs the satfisaction with 4. But oh well, at least this side of the forums is much nicer!

    As I was playing sims 3, I noticed just how much it was so detailed. The environment was beautiful!

    Sadly we'll never see that in TS4.

    I just don't know what else to say about TS4...no detail, no color wheel, no open world, sims look horribly cartoony with their awful non stop smiling, only 3 traits, boring interactions among teens(nothing unique with teens, lack of lighting,(no matter how many windows you put in, you still have to place a lot of lamps, there's no natural light... Even when light in my game is on ultra.


    See with ts3 I did miss a couple of things from ts4 such as the sliders and....
    Wait a minute...what else did I miss, I can't remember?

    Either put an open world back in or scrap the game and work on ts5...

    I don't care how long it takes and how many resources they have to use to add an open world...
    But do it.
    EA has milked so much money out of their players I believe they have enough funds to add an open world, along with open restaurants and places.

    TS4 could be a great game if EA put more effort into it.

    Sims 4 is so boring. Even with toddlers, I just exit the game 5 min after playing.

    I feel that we are due for a pets or seasons expansion pack.

    I just feel a lot is missing from this game...

    I think the sims team did an amazing job on the toddlers, but between all the dang bugs and bad programming... toddlers will only get you so far. Then you realize how meh all other lifestates/ages are. That's how it is for me.

    I still will fire up the game and play for a few minutes here or there, but I always either get frustrated with all the bugs/glitches or just lose the fun of it.

    Funny, I never get the meh feeling from sims 3.

    This!

    I would be surprised if open world is technically possible for Sims 4. Anyone hoping for open world in this game again will have to pin their hopes on a Sims 5.

    NRAAS can fix pudding face.

    Just have a few custom sim families in your sim bin each with different face genetics/skins etc and then NRAAS story prog can force all townies/immigrants to have their genetics taken from the sim bin instead of default pudding faces.

    Also once every sim week I move in a new custom made family with all random genetics and stuff to keep the town genetics flavoursome and alive. Not one pudding face in my town.

    Does this count as pudding?

    I love blue-skinned vampires.
    I am a perfectly decrepit withered old hag who enjoys self-mockery.

    I find smaller eyes and stronger/different jaw shapes usually help with the pudding. And I'm so sad about ts3 players leaving the forum ): It feels lonely. I wish I loved ts4 tbh but it's not doing for me. I think I would like it a lot more if they implemented a CAW tool. At this point, open world is pretty much out of question but they could at least let us create our own neighborhoods.

    @king_of_simcity7 People actually bash you for that? The time they have on their hands :unamused:. Thankfully I haven't seen that as I rarely visit s4 forums now.
