Maybe Sims could have negative moodlets, for shedding from their pets, after a cat or small dog sits on their lap. They can get annoyed with fur all over their clothes.

That would be pretty cool.  In all,  I wish that sims could get more moodlets too, like a moodlet called "My own book" every time they finished a book that got a good review, and a bad moodlet for bad reviews.  Oh, and I also wish that toddlers could do more.  I don't know what I wish they could do, I just wish they could do, just, more.  I mean, I wish they could get into more trouble, like pulling the dogs tail, or giving that little bear that they play with a "haircut".

I feel that there should be negative traits to go along with the "likes animals/cats/dogs/horses" traits from Pets. Plenty of people in real life do not like a certain type of animal or animals in general. If Sims can Dislike Children, they should definitely be able to dislike animals. They could get a negative moodlet when around animals or in a home with animals.

I love this idea!!! and totally agree that if theres an animal lover trait there should have been a 'dislikes animals' one as well, you could even have an interaction to 'complain about animals'

This is why I hate babies and toddlers with a purple passion right now! Back in the Sims 2 days, babies and toddlers had so much to do, and to do with them: Teaching nursery rhymes, bathing them in the tub and sink, changing them with the changing table, asking for stuff, playing in puddles and toilets, dance along to the music, etc. Now babies and toddlers are so limited they're annoying, and unenjoyable. Sorry EA, but TS3 took the fun out of the younger age groups.

It would be cute to have some interactions between toddlers and infants and their older siblings.  At least when the baby is being held by a teen or older, or when the baby is in the crib, there should be some kind of interaction for children with them.

That, would be, amazing.  It's stuff like this that makes me wish I had known that the sims existed when sims 2 came out.  If they ever make a seasons expansion pack(which I'm sure they will, they would make millions off it!)  I hope that an expansion called toddler life or something like that is coming out next.  I'm not trying to rant, but one thing I find annoying about toddlers is the lack of hairstyles.  I mean, they could at least have the option to have a cute ribbon in their hair if they have the longet hairstyle right?  But there are some things that I think are really cute about thet toddlers, like when a young adult plays the music thing with them(I say music thing because I don't want to take the risk of mispelling um, well I'm still not taking the risk and you know what it's called)  And I also like it when they get to go on a spring rider, that's about it, oh, and of course the imaginary friend toys, so cute, but annoying later when t comes to life.  I also wish that toddlers could get into more trouble, like climbing on to a chair somehow and getting on the table.   It would also be cool if they could include a coloring book, and all sims aged toddler to child could color pictures, and then you could hange them on the wall, and bam!new way to increase toddler art skill. :)

Funny that you mention that now. My daughter just came out of her room a short while ago absolutely cracking up because her toddler was playing in the toilet! (She's got my old TS2 games - theres no way I'd trust her with my TS3 ones!)

That sounds like something that would be included in a seasons expansion pack...  I hope something like that is happening at least by 2014!  And maybe sims could sweat if it was a hot day and they were in a room without a fan or air conditioner.  And maybe during the winter they could do something funny like shiver if they were in a room without a heater, and would have the option to put a coat on at the dresser.  But there's something I've been worried about that could happen if they ever make a seasons expansion pack... What happens if you have a legacy and a snowstorm comes when you're just starting out?  That kind of makes me not want that expansion pack to come out.

That made things difficult, but not impossible, Coocoo girl, in Sims 2.  Hopefully it would be the same way for Sims 3.  There are so many places in town where your sim can eat, shower and sleep for free that I would think it would be okay.  If we do see weather someday, I really hope there's the simple option to just not have weather in a particular town.

I would love to see standard sized lots (40x30, 30x40, etc.) in the World Editor.

I agree.  There was something you could get in Sims 2 - some sort of reward object, I think it was - that allowed you to turn off weather on that particular lot, and I wound up using it on all the lots.  Seasons was one of the EPs I was most excited about before I got it.  Then I got it and one of my Sims was killed by lightning inside the house, and another time my Sim was at work when lightning struck, and all I could do was watch helplessly as all the trees burned down, leaving a horrible mess.  And then there was the way the weeds would grow, even under the snow ...  After all that, I'm glad to have the endless sunny days we currently have in Sims 3.

OMG I totally killed a legacy heir by burning leaves and she caught fire and died!

I would love to have weather, but I'm sure it will slow the game down considerably.  I would probably only use it on the small custom neighborhoods I have and forgo it on the big EA 'hoods.

We need to be able to drive to different worlds, for like a small vacation in a nearby location, or take a day trip to the city, and bunk with friends who moved there or something. Not to other countries, as you wouldn't need a visa to travel from New York to Florida. And maybe gas stations and taxi fees, and you could choose not to take a taxi.

I remember in Sims 2 seasons an option to select the 4 seasons that the world would cycle through. So you could have Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall. Or you could be like me and have Summer, Summer, Summer, Summer!  ;D

I incidentally have a mod that does exactly that. Not my own creation, but I could share it. Want to confirm first though if it is within forum rules.

Like Jude, I would really like the lots to all match up.  If EA wants to put something on a 60x60 lot or worse, a 28 by 32 lot, then those sizes should be in our world editor.  I get so tired of having to put things on lots that are way too big or spaced weirdly for them.  Standard lot sizes all around please.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Idea for an expansion/patch
« Reply #1944 on: July 27, 2012, 04:00:23 PM »
EA should release a new expansion/patch that completely removes rabbit holes, and allows more interaction with each of the rabbit holes. At work, you could possibly control your sim and potentially blow everything up. Or you could be a kiss up, and help the boss in every way possible. This patch/expansion would allow for far more interaction with your sim, and in my opinion would make the game more fun instead of waiting for your sim to finish whatever at a rabbit hole.

Some ideas that come to mind:

- A desaturation slider for skin colors. It's a minor thing, but I think the green and blue tones in the game look too colorful for some of my purposes.
- A coffee skill, sort of. Maybe a general brewing skill modeled after mixology. Learn how to make weird lattes, exotic teas, and whatever Starbucks comes up with next. Make a coffee shop and moonlight as a barista for a day. I really just need an excuse to make a hipster coffee shop for my game, complete with cappuccinos, bubble tea, and an alternative looking barista overlooking things.
- The ability to save faces/eyes/etc. into the library of presets in the "basic" tabs in the Looks section of CAS. There are certain types of faces and eyes I use a lot, but they're ones I've created myself and I'm stuck having to recreate them all the time because I can't save them. This is especially frustrating when creating entire families, because the genetics tool in CAS is frustrating as all heck, and I often have a fixed idea of how I want any children to look and how they resemble each parent.
- More long skirts, and more long hairs (chest length and longer) for either gender. I love both a little too much.

I'd like more swimsuits and sleepwear for men.  I also wish hats could be part of accesories instead of hairstyles, though I could see how it could cause problems that way as well, like with some of the crazy hairstyles I have seen sometimes possibly sticking out through the hat.  Something else I would like was included with the orginal Sims Delux Edition.  It came with a feature that among other things, allowed you to upload a headshot of someone and then map it onto the Sims head.  Additonally, you could draw on it to basicly custome create clothes and such.  At the time, I had made, an admittadly poor, Spiderman an Spawn suits.  It would be cool if something like that could be brought into the game again.

And I have sad it before, but I do wish there was a way, without cheats or mods, to knock up a male sim.

And I applogise for any typos, I am currently on a computer with no working spellchecker.

I'd like some more musical instruments, like a bass (not a string bass) and a saxophone. That would be cool. I'd also love an archery skill. Like with a bow and its own traits and whatnot.

I didn't even notice their voices were the same. I don;t usually have the sound on because sound is weird. :) Actually, I love sound. I like my eyes  ::) They are funny and weird. Wow, I have no idea what to write so I'm just writing completely random stuff.  ???  ;)

Hahahahahaha! I absolutely LIVE to meet people like you! Makes life all the things "normal" people fear and avoid. Say, you don't know where I left that green crystal thingy that makes a sim go nuts? :P Don't you dare leave the forum. You are my inspiration for my next Sim!
