Barnacle Bay
« on: August 31, 2010, 03:55:13 PM »
Whoo hoo!  A new World.  It sounds exciting.  Pirates! Arrrgh me matey.  I hope there are a lot of new Sims to play in it, it says there are new Sims, but I am hoping for a lot of them. I also hope that the world is free.

Oh, buggah.  (best Jack Sparrow accent I could come up with)  I want it NOW!  Well, shiver me timbers matey it's full speed ahead with what I have till it arrives.  So many new goodies, so little time...(and cash).  Thanks for posting this.  I had missed it.  I can just see the challenges Metro will come up with for this place!

Sorry, it costs 1650 simpoints. How do I know that? Well, there's an interview about this on IGN. ;D

Yes!!! I want it now, I want it now!  This place just may induce my Sims to finally move out of Sunset Valley.

Wow, that is not to far away.  EA sure likes to spring things on a person.  There is going to be alot of gameplay in the coming months.  Sounds pretty cool.

And on that site it also says 'There is also Buccaneer's Bounty, a pirate-themed clothing and object set available in The Sims 3 Store' so that will be more simpoints one will be needing.   :(

If it costs 1650 Sim Points, then I can be perfectly happy with SV + RV for now, plus I ordered ambitions 2 days ago and will be getting that new world and skills and things too!

Arghh, might have to give in and actually buy some simpoints, although, if I get some for buying and registering Fast Lane and Late Night, I might be right!

It didn't say a price, but this:
Barnacle Bay will be available exclusively at The Sims 3 Store for a yet to be determined price point on September 23, 2010.

They must have changed the article after I linked to it. I'm absolutely positive it said 1650 points before. I guess EA changed their info. :-\

I just read that article about 30 minutes ago and it still had the price in there, strange.  Oh well, hopefully it will be less this time.  Honestly, I saw it too, so you were not seeing things, lol. :)

Maybe they decided it was too much and are going to bring it down in price. We can only hope.

Y'know, the way the Official Announcment sounded...It sounds like it'll be like a WA location, instead of a town...Or you could play it like a town. I'm more excited about the suggestion of a camp site, personally. I've tried making some with buydebug and setting up spaces on different park or beach locations, but...I can't set them up for sims to use.  :(

Have you tried doing it by purchasing the property?  I just upgraded Stoney Falls with grills, picnic tables, swings, trampoline, etc. and Sims can come use them.  I had a party there and it was great.

I want this world! Got to have! I'm so far behind though, still haven't purchased Ambitions (promise to my boyfriend that I finish exploring WA first before getting Ambitions), and the late night one coming up soon. Arrgh!

Yeah, there's the line from the ign article
Titled Barnacle Bay, the new area was once filled with scoundrels but is now a vacation getaway.
plus this line from the official site
Will your trip be a vacation or staycation

Both give the impression it will be a holiday destination like China, France and Egypt.

Still, I'm hoping you can both stay there, and choose to live there as a neighborhood, because that would be sweet.

From the layout, it looks like a new neighborhood, but that is my opinion.  I am sure more info will be coming soon.  I know it says vacation spot, but it sure looks like the other towns and the Hogans Deep Sea Diner could be a giveaway.  I am probably wrong, but that would be cool if it was a new neighborhood.

I have WA but have only vacationed with one Sim.  I liked it but it casued to many things to go weird in the game, so I don't play the vacations.  But can you get pizza delivered while in China/France/Egypt?  In the article it talks about the new pizza delivery guy, Roni Pepper.  It might be a neighborhood then.  Unless you can get pizza in other places.

Very good observation.  You can't order Pizza while on vacation that I know of.  I am looking forward to a new "world" but am disappointed that we will have to pay for it.  I believe that all worlds should be free and then they can charge us for additional custom store content for the world.  Just my 2 cents...

I'm really pleased to see EA doing this!  :)

I've wondered since "Riverview" was available via digital delivery from the get-go of the Sims3 why they haven't been using The Store in a way that leveraged its strengths as a platform for enhancing the Sims3.

I'm not a big "arg me-matey's, pirates!" fan, but it sounds like an enjoyable add to the Sims3 play-field. 20 USD sounds a bit high to me, I'd hope they reduce the price significantly (half sounds about right, 10 USD), but we'll see.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I've been thinking about Hot-Rods and Car Fun Stuff, more than wondering what new stuff is getting rolled out in The Store. I'm pleased to see EA shaping up and offering some REAL content via digital delivery.

(I'm wondering if they are ever going to get The Store working in-game in the Mac version ... I assume from what I've read folks using various flavors of Windows can download and install The Store content in-game?).

  -- Happytime

(I've not really played a horrible amount of World Adventures time. Seems sending a Sim on vacation breaks too many things in my games.)
