Was anyone else disappointed that the Karaoke System in ST was flawed and limited?

I think we should let our sims "lip-snyc" to our OWN custom music files, rather than some Simlish jabble. Along with the singing career, my favorites from the song lists are Maybe It's Better This Way, and One More Gray Day, and that's it. It would be beyond awesome if my singer hopped around on stage, chanting along to Green Day or whomever I listen to. We need that as a new feature: Custom Music files with Karaoke/Singing Career.

Hmm.. There's probably a mod for that, or one being made. Personally, I'm not too bothered. They speak simlish, so let them sing it too haha. ;D

Speaking of Speaking Simlish (total alliteration there), I like how Sims will dance their bodies off to non-Simlish Custom Music files. Lol, it's like, "They don't know the language being sung", "They are enjoying themselves", "They have no idea what's going on, yet they don't care". ^-^

Well saying that, a Russian person in my class says lots of people listen to English music over there~  ;)

Okay, to be clear on my fire pit idea, I was talking about that BBQ pit you turn to roast the meat in TSM. I thought it would be very appropriate for a future Seasons EP. (It was/is my favorite after Pets of course). It could serve as a Sim's pig roast. (Not for me, I'm a vegetarian :P)

I do that with my anime (Japanese spoken, English subtitles) but I wonder if they dance to the beat, not just what they're saying :P

I have Japanese (I don't think they count as anime) songs in my Custom Music folder, mostly for my own amusement. It does crack me up, though, to see my Sims dancing to them.

I wish we could at least put our own designs on T-shirts in CAS, since I don't really like the ones they have now (at least for female Sims).

Also, if toddlers could actually initiate interactions with other Sims, or at least other toddlers. Most toddlers I know (that have learned to talk) can at least say hello to other people!

Sarcastic hearts. :]

A dance career

Basically expand on the ballet class you can take in Generations and have it where there is an actually class while a teen and then can have the career, but break into maybe classic dance and hip hop or club dance.

I have Japanese DDR songs and such in my folder, too! Also, you can design your own shirts. It's very complicated. I can PM you the link to the tutorial later.

I would like part-time jobs to be expanded, as in, a Teen can take a part-time Job in the Music Career, and when they become a YA, they can take the Music Career from whatever level they were as a teen.

So two things: More part time careers, and part-time jobs and full-time careers linked.

They should expand showtime to include bands on stage and increase what the bands can play. I'd also like to see more instruments (saxophone, harmonica, etc.)

They should also expand Showtime so that singers can be in a band!
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

Ditto. I don't see why they didn't allow singers to join bands. That makes no sense.

I would just prefer to have my singer and bands play my tunes! The jamming stuff for bands, SUCKS! They have few options! And , YES, bands often have a singer! If EA is reading and paying attention, load up your RAM!

The instruments need to be expanded. I mean, who plays a band with an acoustic guitar, poppy drumset, DOUBLE BASS (A double bass, I repeat), and piano? Where's the electric guitar and bass, Travis Barker drumset, and more importantly, why can't we have singers in our bands?

The piano would be a keyboard. I think they make ones with a strap that can be carried around your neck.

Speaking of singers, I don't like the outfits singers have. I don't think I've ever seen any real-life celebrity singer wear such an outfit.

No, I was referring to the actual piano used in bands, not keyboards. :P

I think they tried to mimic the outfits that singers wear, but the creators tried to avoid the M rating since singers flaunt off in sultry, revealing clothing. I would never wear the entertainer clothes, take the default singer dress. They should've studied outfits worn by entertainers of various genres, not just pop.

Ok, sorry. ;)

It's as if the creators live in a cubicle nutshell. I have never heard of a band with those instruments and no singer. Typically, on average, my favorite bands contain a bassist, guitarist, vocalist, and drummer. Almost said drummist..heheh. ^-^

What about private schools, you pay a sum of money every six weeks ant the kids get private tutoring and get a scholl uniform the kids can go to logic class or painting class to improve their skills would be quite useful in dynasties to help you max a skill easier

There is already the boarding schools. I don't know if you pay for it though.

I think Simboy means like what was in Sims 2.  Actually that would be neat, but they wouldn't go to the same school.  You would need to put in another school and set it as the Private School.
