What are your Sims 3 habits?
« on: November 21, 2013, 05:32:12 PM »
Do you have any habits when playing Sims?
Here are some of mine:
-Making my Sims really skinny
-Using the same few face shapes, eye shapes, nose shapes and whatnot
-Pausing the game too much
-Making my Sims incredibly nice
I'll probably remember more right after I post this, because that's what always happens to me.

I tend to make the same sim over and over... same facial features, same kinds of clothes, same neighborhoods.

I also tend to gravitate towards the same kinds of careers. My sims are most often artists (painters, sculptors) or chefs. I shy away from gardening, fishing, and athletics.

I usually make them look the same, and gravitate towards a gothic look for them. And I like playing writers, artists, and the occasional scientist/gardener.

I tend to go for the same genral skull shape, narrowest settings for width of the head, with a narrow jaw and mouth.  I like a nice sllightly pointed chin.  Though I do sometimes try to recreate tv characters with limited success.  Some hairstyles are just impossible to get.

When my Sim makes a friend, I want them to be best friends - even if it's not necessary.
When I build or buy something, I recolour things to suit my taste - even if it's not necessary.
When I do not know how to proceed, I spent a lot of time simply staring at the screen.

I always seemed to end up with my Sims looking very similar. I always used the same facial features, just changed the hair and coloring. I've always got to have at least one artist/musician as well. I guess being both in real life makes me always choose those traits for my Sims, plus I like to hang the paintings on the wall.
I'm also a chronic cheater lol. Not always, but I always type in testingcheats, just in case I have to quickly slide up a needs bar.

I usually play over the world that I loved; Riverview and I always play that world even I have another world to explore on. And my Sim always end up with Hunter Cottoneye, I don’t know why it seems that I loved him so much.

If I play in Sunset Valley, I usually play as Agnes and bring Erik back from death and they live happily ever after.

That's what I do for my dynasty.

During normal game play I usually play unemployed sims just so she can party, go uni and make friends - I never make romantic sims or flirty ones 'cause it's too much to trouble dating a dozen people =P

Yeah, I do the same thing. I need to feel like I'm completely in control of my Sims, so I'm always pausing the game.

Hmmm
I guess making my sim's traits a bit too perfect is one of them.
I also save/save and quit after major events/milestones.

Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I play matchmaker for most if not all of the townies in whatever town I'm playing. Yay for MasterController. :)

**cough, cough** I got a lot in this category and thought about it the other day. lol.
Like most, I click the exact same default face features. A lot if the time blond hair, really slim, and blue eyes. I guess that's what I wished I looked like. I kind of keep diversity in the clothes a little surprisingly.
I've started a pattern of playing in Hidden Springs. The town is beautiful and love having my wealthy famous sims reside there.
I PAUSE WAY TOO MUCH. Like maybe I think it saves time but I don't think so.
I usually stick to the military career and usually two-four children and for some reason I favor girls more so I get a lifetime supply of watermelon.
There's tons of things I should do more. Like try all careers, discover all recipes, travel more, go to university, ect. I'm trying to get the most out of ts3 before ts4.

I second what simlover16 said about the girls and watermelons. I have a hard time NOT having girls because I like their clothes so much better!

When creating sims:

- They all have wide-ish jaws. I can't make a good heart-shaped face to save my life.
- I'm a sucker for noses with straight or hooked bridges in profile, so most of my created sims have such noses.
- I have the striking inability to make thin lips, so a majority of my created sims have full lips.
- Most of my sims are "sims of an average weight." I don't usually make legitimately overweight sims, but I like my women to have a few curves and my men to be somewhere between average and stocky.
- I obsessively save every new color and recolor of everything I make, no matter how stupid the idea turns out to be.

Though when it comes to sims born in-game, anything goes. One of my favorite sims at the moment has a slim jawline and a slender build, but she was born that way, not made.

When playing my game:

- Fidelity is for chumps. My sims are almost always cheaters.
- Somehow, my families always have a sculptor.
- I'm one of those players that prefers having girls.
- Somehow I want to play a game in a town I've never touched, but I keep loading up Twinbrook and playing there instead!

I like to save townies to the bin and change them a little in cas. Then my sims don't look the same.

 Well, I'm not always goode-goode if I want to let you know.

When I activated my Angel side
I have soft spot for Sim who has:
- Tragic Background story
- Being an Outcast
- Being bullied by other Simmer ::)
And usually will create story about another side of them that people should know. There must be a reason for what all happened to them. Instead just looking at one way, there are three perspectives. You, Me and the third person
I also try to make their wish become happen like what they stated in their biography
Usually always end with happy end even there’s a tragic story, which will not be long. Because sweet must be taste better after we taste the bitter right?

When I'm being in neutral zone
- Playing Sims like usual, just like the boring me and soon after that quit the game

When I activated my Evil side
- I will ruin Sim life. For example: like having Nick Alto divorced with Vita Alto and being married to Gobias Koffi and having child with him ::) Nick will be the mother as always.
- I once play Andrews family and make Beau as the cheater, I also change his looks completely in CAS so he'll be so different. Victoria will be tortured by Special Sim that she always cared about and find a new love and soon after that end tragically, muahaha... That’s what you get for having Insane Sim.
- I also love enjoyed torture my Sim with so many way before they are death
- My Sim hero/heroine always end tragically even they have a beautiful ending. Soon after wedding Grimmy always come and get one of them
- And so many more, I afraid if I post here would be inappropriate, but you know my minds usually have something that even nastier than what I write here ::)

So which one you prefer ::)

I only like happy endings. It must be the Mother/Grandmother in me. Also, my own personality is Good instead of Evil. I seldom play evil sims. They hurt my soft heart.

For me creating tragic end easier than happy one, I don't know why death related story always crossed on my mind. I love Romeo and Juliet but I dislike the ending, but I don't know why find that ending quite enjoyable. So, having a dynasty and tried to create a happy ending one for story line is hard for me. Because our reality is not like a fairy tale which always have happy ending forever and ever and end we up with such cliffhanger ending.

But I'm glad that I can do it too, I can create happy ending one. Even while in process making the story tears cannot stop from my eyes, I always end crying. That's also happen when I create background story for Sim who has unlucky background, I always cried, I can't stop my tear falling off again and again. Making stories about them exhausted me so much, but in other side I am glad.

So, that's become my concept for The Watcher and The Destroyer. It’s not always religious theme, it’s all about another side of me.

I believe what we write or we do when playing is a reflection of our soul unconsciously and playing The Sims 3 just one way for us to “escape reality”, we could create anything we want, we could do anything we want like Miley ::) and that's never ever happened to our real life but not always like that so don't take my word too seriously.

So, there are storyteller, builder, fashion designer and photographer as I can see.

I usually end up my Sims with Hunter Cottoneye because I care for those people in real life and I have relative with that illness and I love creating pattern for my Sims clothes when I playing The Sims.
