I guess you could starve them, just like any other Sim, by not feeding them.  But dang!  I've never seen little ones die like that.  You'd think that Social Services would come get them before it got to that point.

I'm assuming those are non-playable sims that are dying, (as in, in a household that you aren't playing but still part of your family.)
:( That's so sad, but I do think that the social workers won't come for Non-playable Sims.

I finally got a pic of my magician.  I had read on posts that they were in the parks, but up until now have not seen one.  My sim is good friends with him already, but that is as far as it is going.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Is there anything special about him? Does he perform magic tricks?

Exactly! That's awful! Why wouldn't the social worker come for them?

Wow!  I didn't know there was such a Sim.

In my game the town babies have never died that I know of. They do seem to be neglected however, whenever I have visited the homes where they live. Their bars are always yellow, orange or red and the adults in the home are busy doing their own tasks and when I send my Sim to care for the baby, then the other adults head for the baby too.
I'm "sensitive" to my Sims babies and I just have to do something to help them. So, thanks to Pam who showed me how to build/buy in the town, my babies and tots have cribs, potty chairs, high chairs and toys in every location except for the career buildings that I can not see into. I have noticed that since taking that action, the town Sims seem to bring their babies out with them more often. I also have visited all of the homes that have babies and tots and I have equipped all of their homes with the items as well. 
My Sims babies and tots wish to thank you again Pam.  ;D

Isn't there something which makes families die/move away if the town is over populated?

But they could easily just take the child away instead of killing it. . .
That's just me though. I have seen a magician person and am very curious to see if he does anything other than just act like a regular Sim...

Most folks have been a bit disappointed in the magician.  He/she is hard to pin down for conversations, they are short a couple of traits, and if your Sim marries one, it's not a big deal.

The funny thing, my sim started flirting and carrying on, his three traits were, good sense of humor, flirty and loves the outdoors.  He is in her friends list, but without the makeup and suit.  She has invited him over a couple of times, but, too bad the magacians are not useful, just another townie.  Would be neat if you could at least hire them for kids birthday parties or something.

Yeah, same story with the magician in my game. I found them at the park one day and rushed my Sims over to chat with them to keep them there while I quickly tried to get my other family members to the park to see if the magician would perform or something. But instead, the magician took off running and I couldn't keep up with them to see where they went.  :(  Hopefully EA will change that someday. 

I like your idea "Saltypaws" about the magician performing at kid parties, or any party really, or just show up in town at random times and perform.

I was considering bringing the ghost clown back to life and see if he did anything special - Does anybody know already? I think I've read something somewhere on the forum about the clown, but, I can't remember exactly.

The Ghost Clown is supposed to be some famous Clown from Sims 1 and he is burried in the Graveyard.

It's the tragic clown. He was really annoying. If your sims where very unhappy or sad, he would come and try to 'entertain' your sims to make them happy again. Unfortunately he himself was also a little bit 'depressed' and he didn't succeed in amusing your sims. You could slap him though, which would actually make your sim happy.

The clown would leave if your sims were happy again, but this was very difficult with that depressed jester in your house. You could also buy his painting and try to set it on fire; this would burn the clown to death. EA also released a download which included the 'clown catchers'. You could call them and they would remove the clown for a small fee.

Well that's the sad history of the tragic clown. Spread the word!

Ok, so definitely the clown should stay where he's at. lol

I have revived Tragic Clown once, but he never did anything funny. I think he's just a normal sim with funny make-up who's there to make a reference to Sims 1 (and give head-ache to those that try to put some sort of chronology into the Sims games: Sims 3 is supposed to be taking place before Sims 1, so that means that the Tragic Clown was a ghost in Sims 1 or that someone'd revived him!).

Possibly because they had some starting families in the sims 1 who grew older, got children and eventually died. Most of these people were adults in the sims 1 (only 2 possible ages...) and elders or aduls in sims 2. The only missing life phase of these people was their childhood --> sims 3.

Of course this is my point of view and I'm not sure this was EA's.

Actually, that fact is commonly accepted by the gaming community.

The most obvious source is of course that Bella and Mortimer are children. Ms Crumplebottom from Sims: Hot Date is younger as well and is Agnes Crumplebottom now (not to be confused with Mrs Crumplebottom from Sims 2, that's another person).
I quickly looked up an example of an EA developer commenting this, so in this a little old youtube clip this guy briefly mentions Agnes Crumplebottom as the young Ms Crumplebottom (skip to the fifth minute if you don't want to see everything): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFq40YSYGso

Sims 2 is taking place after Sims 1. This can for example be seen in that Cornelia is a teen. In Sims 3 she is of course not born yet. In Sims 1 she's a child.

Cornelia Goth is married to Gunther in Sims 3? Sims 2 she was dead.

Oh, yeah! You're right! Ha, ha, it's been too long since I played Sims 1 ;D. It was of course Cassandra Goth I meant.
Stupid similar names, always confusing well-meaning players... :)

I like the names, it adds an air of mystery to the lives they could live.
