As an official, "elder", I'd like to see us old folks look and act more like we really do.  S'resiously peoples.  I mean, for heaven's sake I play Sims and mmorpgs!  Yet if I was to make a simself I'd have to be all hunched over, munch on my gums a lot, look all wrinkled and grumpy, (or sappy), and not walk straight.  And the clothing choices!  OMG don't get me started on that disaster!  Hello!  We STILL wear jeans and tees at my age!, not some old rag bag thing even Goodwill wouldn't take!  It's worse for elder guys.  They REALLY look dreadful!
Ok, so maybe lacey garter thingies aren't exactly appropriate, (or attractive! lol), for someone who is 70 plus, but does that mean we have to be relegated to the saggy baggy frumpy night wear?  We STILL like pretty, or comfy and cozy, (tank top and boy shorts works just fine, thank you!, or silk pj's). 

Hair is not too bad.  I can deal with the hair available for my age group.  Make up is another story!  Subtle people, it's called being subtle.  What I could wear even 10 years ago, (which wasn't much different from 40 years ago), would look like clown make up now. 

Geez, hasn't EA heard of "aging gracefully"?  That make most elders look like they have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel! (and Grim is pushing from behind!)

Someone mentioned something about baby blankets.  The nooboos don't have blankets, unless you are talking about what is in their cribs.  Those can be recolored and made to look absolutely adorable.  However, I would like to see nicer, cuter, sweeter,  softer more baby looking patterns.  I'd like to see things more gender appropriate too.  Puppies and kitties and bunnies and bears, and balls and bats and toy boats and dollies and blocks and abc's and stuff for the nooboo bedroom and clothes.  And what's with babies only coming in blankets?  What about bonnets and onesies and little frilly dresses and tiny tuxedos and jammies?

Most of all, I'd like to be able to make the absolutely drop dead gorgeous Sims you see on the mod sites that we are totally unable to recreate because of limitations on hair style, length and color, and eye and eyebrow shapes, not to mention lip color.
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

Well said, Joria!  Personally, I do sometimes walk hunched over.  It depends on how long it takes me to straighten up my back.  ;D

Regarding your bit about having limited hairstyles, length, color, eyes, eyebrows, etc., the advanced settings on eyebrows, lips, and other facial features give us almost unlimited variety.  Have you played with that yet?

Hair is not too bad.  I can deal with the hair available for my age group.  Make up is another story!  Subtle people, it's called being subtle.  What I could wear even 10 years ago, (which wasn't much different from 40 years ago), would look like clown make up now.  


Personally, I wear that much makeup (eyeshadow mostly) in real life. However, there is a opacity slider you can use to create a more subtle look for Sim makeup.

Most of all, I'd like to be able to make the absolutely drop dead gorgeous Sims you see on the mod sites that we are totally unable to recreate because of limitations on hair style, length and color, and eye and eyebrow shapes, not to mention lip color.

You don't need creepy third party skin tones and genetics to create pretty Sims. All it takes is practice, and creativity. Some of those big voluminous hairstyles are found at the official Sims 3 Store. Aside from the occasional hairstyles and clothes, and some makeup, which I use on occasion, I don't think those Sims look pretty, at all. I actually find them really creepy. Sims are suppose to look like Sims, they aren't meant to look like humans. I promise you, if you check out the Sims 3 Store, and save up on your Sim Points, and you will find some really nice hairstyles and clothes.  ;)

I agree with you on some of the clothes though. I'd like to see the elderly Sims have some trendy clothes, that help them feel young again! I'd like to see some sort of "Botox" available for the elderly too!  :D

I wish piercings would come back from Sims 2. They made the women look "tougher".

I don't think a piercing makes a woman look "tougher." I got my nose pierced 4 months after my 18th birthday, and I didn't get my nose pierced to look "tougher" though. I just have a little stud on my right nostril.

I think it would be awesome if there were volume and curliness sliders for hair.

I totally need that in order to make a realistic simself.

I agree with you guys. I think a hair length slider is necessary as well. Just don't go too realistic, like those CC filled Sims people upload on the official forum, with the realistic skin tones! *shudders* I hate that look with a purple passion!

I think maybe highlight choices would be a great edition too! Like chose if we want chunky or subtle highlights. Some people's simselves like Subtle, others like myself, like more bold and chunky.

@jeanamariex3:

Who are you quoting up there about piercings making the women to look tougher?  You just always need to include the person being quoted to keep everything clear.

I just thought of something I would like to see in CAS for women! More PJ pants in different childish themed patterns! Perhaps some of the baggy PJ pants in the guys section of CAS too would be even better with different designs of cartoons! As a young adult female, I'm a bit bummed by this, because I myself in real life wear PJ pants that are baggier with cartoons on them!

1. I would love more modern suits for men.  Double Breasted suits make me cry - big rivers of fashionless tears.
2. A "working late" shirt and tie combo - without a jacket, with folded sleeves, the ties loosened up and the shirt opened slightly.
3. A more diverse tattoo system, which would allow for full sleeves, rather than segmented, and oddly focused symbols.
4. More facial hair options!
5. Just more clothing for men in general, also too in real life... LOL

I would say a height bar but if my mind serves me correctly...which it normally doesn't  :D I read somewhere that it would mess up animations.

I think one thing I would like to see is better toddler clothes well more modern clothes in general. EA is still living in the 90's- early 00's  ;D

The ability to add one or two streaks in hair, or different degrees of highlights. Like, I could put in one little streak of platinum blonde against my dark virgin roots.

I'd like to bump this up. One thing I would've liked to see for Generations, is the strapless layered dress with the bow in the middle, be available as formal wear for teens, instead of just everyday. If you're only going to give teens that outfit for one category only, it should be formal, not everyday. I'm always disappointed that that dress isn't available for prom. It would be so cute with the converse.

Since you bumped this, Jeana, I have a new idea.  What if you could take a picture of a person, or even a drawing, and the game could recognize certain features on the face and reconstruct it as a sim?  I think I'd use that quite a bit, though I imagine it would be complicated and probably take awhile for the game to process.  You could have a real Charlie, Jeana.   ;)

LOL! That idea for some reason reminds me of the custom paintings in TS2, where you could get a picture of say, you or your pet, or a random cartoon, and put it in the paintings folder. You could select "Paint Custom Painting..." and have Darren Dreamer paint a self portrait of you.

hehe Well, Facebook can do it; I upload pictures and it actually finds faces and asks me to tag them and gets it right.  That's why I thought TS3 might be capable of the same thing.  Perhaps they could do it as an add-on sort of feature, like Create-a-World.  You don't need CAW to play, you wouldn't need this, but if you wanted it, it could be there.

I used to have a Sims album on FB and it would pick my sims and ask me to tag them, heh. I would love it if TS3 could have a facial reconstructor, I'd put my siblings through it for giggles.

I think it would be cool if sims had more realistic teeth. I have a canine that protrudes slightly and it gives me a slightly crooked smile. I wish I could do that on TS3 with my simself.

I once saw something about the version of the game for Nintendo 3DS allowing you to take a picture and have the sim made to look like the person in the picture.

Seconded! My Simself just doesn't look right without my huge front teeth.  :)

Spongebob has huge front teeth! ;D

I think I want more fantasy skin tones. I mean skin colors like purple, grey, rainbow, etc.
