None of these new quirks should be surprising to anyone.  Things like this always happen.  EA will fix it...and if they don't someone else will. :p

Oh come on now:  you all come here and are exceptionally social...but when you play you want to roll up the ladder of the treehouse?

It's new, so (some) people want to try it out.  It'll be bad for a week, maybe two, but once people see that this is all there is to it (and start losing friends for spamming every last event that occurs), this will all calm down.  You see this in every online game that has ever existed.  New toys have to be played with.  Immediately and constantly lol.

*looks utterly scandalized*  :o

Is that all?  These are achievements, people.  Achievements!  How can you not want them??  Achievements are life!  Must.  Get.  Achievements. 

Okay, seriously:  you've obviously never played an MMORPG.   Achievements appeal to a lot of people...like me!  ;D

You know you're killing me...right?  :P

Nice to meet you, Rica. My name is Mallory and I am an achievement addict, too.

I think this new posting thing at TS3 is only going to get worse.  Have you looked at it?  As I said before I think I've friend-ed (is that even a word?) 15 people there. What I see on my page are all the new items listed in any of the exchange studios of these people...and their friends, any forum post they have made...and their friends, comments on forum posts..and ones made by their friends, achievements, badges and any inane comment that anyone cares to make. 

And Showtime and the whole Simport request thing hasn't even started yet. It's already an ongoing flow of things I don't need to see.

And as far as pulling up the ladder, yes that's me. When I play it's my time to play my game, escape from other people and go off into my Sim world.

My only problem is I love BlueMurder's patterns.  But her ability to upload 100s of patterns every couple of days is going to get annoying.

Yep already done that. I I've never used the memories upload  or in game shopping either. I'm talking about the My Page clutter at TS3.

I downloaded the patch and went to check it out.  I have to admit, I really like the new system.  I saw where Katluvr got an achievement and thought that was really cool.  Most of my friends on sims3 are people from here.  Not sure I have some of you, I don't think I have you on there Hosfac.  So far, I had only gone into one of my games and it was fine.  I guess there are some people that are having problems logging in and the site gives them a default name, so I hope they fix that soon.   :)

This is the problem I'm having. I love her patterns and I like that I can see when she's added new ones but, the spam is covering up everything else.

I was on my sims a bit befor it crashed on me and i had to restart my pc, when i got done cleaning everything out i went to go play again and i saw the patch... I didnt think much of it and downloaded and installed it in my computer. I go and play my game and my bug collection vanished, my unicorn cant be clicked on or when hes the active sim he cant click on others or the ground, but strangely it works when clicking the hay and the water. My tracker for time spent running was not reading the time ran. I guess you can say my one game is all messed up. I went on my other game and its perfectly fine... :-\ I have no clue why the one is messed up and the other is fine, so far... Any suggestions on how to fix my one town? I already had to restart it earlier this week due to another glich. I would just hate to have to restart it again after collecting a lot of stuff and working on a perfect garden as well as breeding horses.  :(

 Glad I found this thread before I played! I'll definitely wait to update on my nearly six year old mac! Yesterday I was thinking about it and realized just how old my computer was! ;D Maybe now my parents will get me a new one!

After some initial troubles with my login information, I have been playing with minimal problems. It has been running a lot smoother than I expected. I only have 4 friends right now, and as far as I know if they are on I haven't been spammed with anything.

I hope Tuesday goes as well.

My info is on the sims site user name thread anyone can add me.

And Showtime and the whole Simport request thing hasn't even started yet. It's already an ongoing flow of things I don't need to see.

I have close to 25 friends on my list.

Yes, things will likely get worse before they get better, but they will get better...and it won't take that long before the concept isn't new anymore and people only post the things that matter.  Yes, I've looked at my wall.  One of my friends is a content creator and has uploaded about a gazillion patterns today.  I got a notice for each one.  Separately lol.  Again, this is likely something that will be tweaked as more people complain about it.  When that will happen is anyone's guess, of course.  :P

I don't see Simport being as invasive as everyone seems to think it's going to be.  I could be wrong...I have been in the past (once or twice ;) )...but from the descriptions I've seen it's going to be different from the impressions everyone seems to have.

My only problem is I love BlueMurder's patterns.  But her ability to upload 100s of patterns every couple of days is going to get annoying.

Lol.  As I said:  a gazillion patterns.  :P

I just updated and then got this at the very end of the 98%. Uhg. I'm starting the Patch again to see if it was just a fluke, does anyone know how to get around this?

I think maybe we should have separate topics for things like the social system.  This topic is specifically about the update itself and not really a good place to talk about the individual new game content.

Not sure if it makes a difference but I just opened up Origin (The Program, Not the Patch Download) and it had an update to do, maybe that could be the issue with downloading the patch?

I downloaded the new Origin patch before I downloaded the Sims 3 patch. I'd say, give the Origin patch a try first. :)

The update has caused career opps to be broken, and some skill opps as well. (Maybe even all opps!) Once I complete whatever the opp is asking me to complete, it still comes up as if I haven't done what is required. :-\ Not good at all for Dynasties!!

I keep getting that too when I try to install the patch when I start my game. I gave up and just say no each time. I might try the Origin update, otherwise, I'll just wait till I get Showtime next week.

I found something funny with this new patch:

Everything is fine for me, except that I cannot play again with a game made from the scratch and saved. It does not show in the main menu of the game. It looks alright in the Saves files though. And I can play with old saved games (before the patch) and save new ones from them, as far as I don't completely rename them.

I must tell the way I name my saved games: they all start with the name of the family I'm playing with, and numbers or comments after it. ie: My sim is called Jennifer Smith and my saves with her are named Smith 1, Smith 2 and so on.

After several tests, I found out that I could play with my new made-from-the-scratch games if their names started with the first word of an old game. I am just wondering if this has not something to do with the way "friends" are named in the new communication device? I did not try it.
