Please tell me this is true!!!! And how to do it!! This is my SINGLE biggest annoyance in Sims 3! I will do the math, that's cool, anything to find out how old someone is!

I think its part of the normal friendly chat interactions... I do have all expansion packs so it might have come out with something recently.  I noticed it around "Supernatural" time.  Hope that helps. :)

It's a part of Twallan's Woohooer. Since I play with mods or mod-free depending on the game, I notice when that option is missing. ;)

Aww ok. I have had all expansions installed at some point, not all at once though, but have never seen it.
Please EA, Please!!!!

I think an even better option would be to ask them how many days it is until their birthday. "12 days to elder" is a bit easier to conceptualize than "20 days older than you."

I know this is far fetched because we just got 70's 80's 90's but a Jem and the Holograms inspired EP

Kites. I want kites. Kites we can fly. Kites we can build. Kites we can compete with. It could even raise the painting skill to paint them, and handiness to build them!

I wish they would change a few of the Female CAS items, so that pants can be tucked in to boots! Its so weird looking to have a skinny, tight fitting pair of jeans go over top of a pair of boots. Especially the 'Ugg' style boots that came with seasons.

I agree with fortheloveofcake. I know CC lets you do such a thing, so why can't EA?  ::)

One trait conflict that should have never happened: Dislikes Children and Childish. I have the childish trait, and just because I've been known to act like a kid, doesn't mean I like them.  :P

I'd really like the ability to drag an action from one place in the queue to another.  If the toilet breaks and I've got a shower and breakfast all queued up, I hate to cancel all that to unclog the toilet or call the repairman.  I wish we could give the command and then (maybe only when the game is paused?) drag it somewhere else in the queue.  Or drag an action backward to keep a sim from walking all over a large lot to get things done.  You get the picture.

An expansion pack, stuff pack or patch that doesn't break existing gameplay. :)

Also, a Star Trek inspired stuff pack/world.

The Irresistable and Socially Akward traits to be in conflict.
I don't see why they should be able to be on a single sim.

I want a new interaction, if it doesn't already exist, for child and childish sims.  The Glomp.  I think it would be cute for say, a child sim to glomp their older sibling.

Oh I had to look that one up. I've never heard of a 'glomp' before. Apparently neither has my firefox dictionary. The definition I found describes it as something like a flying tackle hug. Is that what you meant? It would definitely be cute if kids could do that when their parents got home from work.

Yup, that is a glomp. And it would be cute!

The procession of autonomous actions between Sims. It would be a pleasure seeing AI instigating more conversations and actions with your character and others, particularly in relation the complexity of the situation. Sims also should act immediately instead of taking half an hour to speak to someone or even clean.

Toddlers that can talk should get to interact with adults.  I would really enjoy that.

It's kind of a small thing to ask for, but I'd really like to see recolorable roofs. Sometimes I see a pattern I like, and I see a color I like, but they're not on the same thing, so I have to choose one or the other.

Hi, I've been thinking up some things I'd like to see in Sims3 which include:

Sims Sports Addition or Olympics: Sports are no longer rabbit holes. Sims can play basketball, baseball/softball, football, golf, gymnastics, cheer, lacross, tennis,  etc. They can join teams with associated outfits/jerseys. Competitions and games would be held on certain days and they have to practice or train. With sims import in Showtime..you can import a friends team to compete against yours. Objects can include: basketball court, balance beam, bars, baseball bats, gloves, trampoline, more exercise equiptment, punching bag, etc. Community Lots could be basketball court, baseball field, football field, driving range, put-put course, gymnastics academy.  Traits could be competitive, agile, fatigues easily, burnout, coornated, champion, lazy, etc. Careers can include: coach, sports agent and trainer. (Yes I've really thought about this..lol)

Sims Hobbies(sort of like freetime on the Sims2): Sims of all ages will be given more things to do. Once again no rabbit holes. Kids Sims can take up: girl/boys scouts, 'summer camps',  figure skating, karate, dance class, instrument or voice lessons, swim team, the associated sports in Sims Sports Addition..lol only little leagues, peewees, etc.  Teen Sims: All of those above, driving school, they can vollunteer to coach or assistant coach/leader, more part time job opportunties, more school dances, shopping and malls, teen only hangouts.  For adults/Elders: Crafts,Lions Club(Men only), more cooking recipes, bingo, sewing, crocket, etc.  New traits: Actively involved/Homebody, Multi tasker/Single tasker, Easily Distracted. Community Lots can include: Campsite, Dance Studio, Recreation Center, Malls/Shopping Centers(actual stores where they can buy clothes, objects that you can't get in 'buy mode'), Hangouts(Age restrictions..so now you can have kids only, teens only, etc). New Careers: Teacher, Activites Leader, Cub Scout Leader, Camp Director.


Sims Rags to Riches: This expansion would be darker and more realistic. Sims can now be homeless, live in a box, beggers on the street, thieves, pit pocketers.  Or on the upper side, filthy rich with limos, more luxiurious build/buy options, give money to begger, take in children on the street, etc.  Stocks, taxes, disease, and lottery will come into play.  Traits can include: Benefactor/ Greedy, Sly or Stealthy, Spender/Saver, Dreamer/realist. Poor Sims can also squat at unoccupied houses, so be careful when you buy. Community Lots: Orphanage, Bank, more casinos, Country Club, Poor house.etc.  It can be Dickens or Old London inspired. Careers could be Banker, Tax collector, entrepeneur, more involved police people, PitPocketer, Thief, and more.

Other than those mentioned expansions, I'd like to see:

-Non rabbit hole resteraunts(like in the old sims where you can sit down, order food/drinks, etc)

-Adjust height(I know it's sort of impossible for the creators, but it would be neat)

-Centaurs,Leprecans, and banshees for Supernatural as well as covens for witches since werewolves can be in packs, why can witches form covens? It looked like they're getting mermaids for Island Paradise, so I wont ask for them.

-I can always use more hairstyles and clothes

I hope EA/Maxis reads this..lol

Pretty interesting ideas there laneybug7! ;D
There are a lot of sports already when you think about, from various expansions and store items.... Off the top of my head:
Basketball hoop - the Store
I think there is a golf driving range with Showtime
Horseriding and Jumping with Pets
Soccer with Seasons
Trampoline I think came with Generations
Swimming with the base game and also playing catch
That's all I can think of right now ::)
I'd love to have tennis in the game actually...I bet some really funny animations could come out of it!
A rags to riches EP sounds cool, but I reckon it wouldn't appeal to everyone :/ some of it might also break the Teen rating. Really really great ideas though, I love thinking these things up :D

But Sheldon Cooper is rather irresistible because of his social awkwardness, isn't he? :D

I was talking with a friend a couple days back, and now I would love a decor pack that is bacon themed.  Wallpaper looks like bacon, beding has a bacon patern, a lamp that looks like a piece of bacon, and whatever else would work.

I'd still love a stuff pack filled with hair styles and clothes inspired from popular anime and video games, as well as posters of characters.  Sims has had branded content in the store before, it would be fun to see more.

And I don't think they have been made yet, but kiddie pools would be fun too.  It would be cute to see toddlers splashing about in a little pool.

I think on the trailer for the Island Paradise EP it showed a toddler in armbands held by its mommy and splashing in the sea. So cute!
