I think this is one I actually bought from the store and the other one is hair on both sides, that one is my favorite.

Not sure if I actually clarified those pics, she has that long hairstyle before getting in the shower and I noticed while she was in there, she basically had no hair.  Doesn't really bother me that much, just kinda strange.  Maybe it is because it is purchased hairstyle, not sure why that happens.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

I still believe that could be because of the different-hairstyles-for-different-clothes feature. Normally, the shower hairstyle is the same as the bathing one (I believe at least), but that this glitch occurs of downloaded stuff since you can't determine the shower hairstyle in CAS, only the "normal" clothes' hairstyles. I can't verify this, but given what I've so far understood about this game's mechanics, it's a possibility.

I love that first picture, Salty. Clearly something is grabbing her attention. Maybe she just stepped off of the bathroom scale in horror.

I bought both of those hairstyles from the Store.  Didn't get them from the Exchange.

I decided to delete the picture I posted earlier this evening after my 9-year-old daughter's reaction to it. I certainly hope it didn't offend anyone. I felt it was just a bizarre graphical glitch and just funny. Suggestive, yes. But, not explicit. But, the gist of the picture was Madison Van Watson had an entirely black face and for all intents and purposes, the game did not draw her clothing properly, so it appeared as if she had no shirt on. But, again, it was a graphical glitch. It wasn't detailed. Think of a Barbie Doll—the shape was there, but no detail.

Yes, that is the one, I bought it too, there is a few more at the store, and well, ummm, I bought those too, LOL.  I have got to stop that.

Then there is nothing wrong with it, I think.

I have seen it multiple times, but this time I caught a pic of it! Exactly what spitting dragon are they talking about? I have never seen a dragon except for relics, and they don't spit! This has puzzled me for some time but I could never get a pic, but today I did!

There's not a spitting dragon.  It's just one of those cute little things that pops up during the loading screen.

This is going to sound really sad of me, but does anyone else miss the reticulating splines and re-reticulating splines that used to scroll along the bottom from TS2? No clue what that meant, but it was tweaked with each expansion. Not that anymore, sadly.

YES! I miss that too. They also reticulated splines in the Sim City games.

I think what they are referring to is the fountain that is the head of a dragon and the water comes out of his mouth.  It's the Spitting Dragon Fountain...in the buy mode. ;D

You want me to fix the sink? Me? Hah! I could do that with both my hands behind my back!




Ok, I'll admit my proto-type still has a few bugs.
Now will you please get off my back?




Honey, I'm home!
How was your day, dear?
The usual, a couple of chemical fires. How about you?
Garlic explosion.
Nice.



Not sure what the exact circumstances were, but both my sims had something happen at work that left them like this.

I do remember garlic being involved with the cook, hence the stinky-cloud.
Does anybody know if/how you can get that look and hair style on purpose?
Likewise the hairstyle for the mad scientist, I love that one.

I got that once. Apparently, your sim is near an oven with something in it, and a heated debate starts. Your sim catches on fire and is extinguished by a pot of garlic sauce.

What in the world was going on in that middle picture?
I really don't know.
My sim was about to hit level 9 in science, and I got all excited since that was his lifetime wish (become a Creature-Robot Cross Breeder), when the game got really buggy.
They all got out of work, but I didn't get a notice of money earned, promotion or anything, and every sim (in the entire town) was frozen.
Poor Max and his coworkers all left the building at the same time and got stuck together.

I tried resetting a couple of them, but that didn't work.
When I reset the wife who was frozen at home, she teleported to the garden, walked a few steps towards the front door, went invisible (camera still followed her through the door) and then teleported outside again and got stuck in that loop.
Going through several save games I couldn't find exactly where the game got bugged, so I started a new game with better traits etc from my experience so far and didn't encounter the bug again.

Since Max was about to hit the Creature-Robot Cross Breeder level, I fancy his experiments took a very wrong turn.
In the new game he made it to Mad Scientist and I like to make him whip out his ray gun and zap everything in sight.
I even experimented with giving him evil/insane/inappropriate traits to see if he would do that on his own, but no luck so far.

I thouht this was kinda cute.  Had just put this sims gravestone down and a few hours later, he comes out and the first thing he does is meditate.  No haunting, just meditating, lol.

That's actually one of the first things I looked for when I got The Sims 3. (Now that's sad!) :D It doesn't show up every time, but I occasionally see "Reticulating 4-D Splines". That was with the base game; I haven't noticed it since I got WA or HELS.

My husband always wondered what reticulating splines is and I had no idea what to tell him.

It's essentially a joke in the earlier games that during the load screens they showed what the computer was presently up to, but it was very weird and non-existent stuff like "reticulating spines".
You could really have wanted to hear some better explanation on why you were waiting sometimes! :D

I plainly guess that they're like, arranging people's spines in a network. ;)
