Yes, that's how I found out about it - now to try and plant that marshmallow... The other thing it could be is bait for a new fish, perhaps.

This could be a really great shortcut for the Perfect Garden wish!

It's probably bait. I looked in BuyDebug a while ago (with showtime) - no Marshmallow plant.

Shucks! I was reading this thread and got more and more excited with the prospect of having marchmallow plants (I've barely had time to play the game, thanks to the patches, so thought I'd hop onto the forum to see what others thought of it).....and now you say no Marshmallow plants! Maybe it'll come in a future expansion pack - one never knows, with EA! lol

I start to enjoy this expansion very much. The DJ Booth is so much fun! I didn't have any more errors and have only one freeze. I just exit and go back ingame and nothing since and I play for 2 hours now! I did turn the relfections on the water off and turn my screen resolution down a bit. It is a awesome expansion.

I am sick and tired of the sing-O-grams! They pop up and when my sim tries to finish them the person is unavailable. She runs all over town for NOTHING! She doesn't even like these people (or I should say I don't like these sims). Sing a gram to someone who is mean?! Give me a break. I think they should drop the grams once you have booked stage shows. if you are a regular at 3 places, why would you run around singing stupid grams? Waste of time, and I don't complete most of them.

When my sim get to level 5 or 6 in the career I just ignore them. Let her sing for tips between gigs.

Is it normal for all the proprieters to only be avaliable from Tuesday at 12:00 am to Wednesday at 12:00 am?
If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

No. They should show up during the day when the venue is open. Private Venues they turn up within an hour of opening time.

So money is very tight for me right now, and I have seen this expansion pack at £30 in supermarkets. I read this thread in the hoping that you guys would give me an honest opinion on how this expansion makes the game better. I have to say I think I have made up my mind, by page 2 of the replies!

I got the social stuff in the patch, my other half wasn't very enthusiastic, he says it's a single player game and should remain that way. I on the other hand have been waiting for something like this, it's the way the world is moving right now, so it was only a matter of time. I haven't got any friends on it yet (violin please!!), but I think it might work quite well.

From what you lot have said, it sounds awesome, and I will be working my behind off to get the money to treat myself!

Thanks guys =D

It's still a single player game.  Nothing has changed in that respect.  When/if you use SimPort, other people's Sims are essentially NPC's.  You can't even interact with them, except to request what they do while their performing.  The social features simply allow you to communicate with other people while you're playing.

Since you said £30 I assume you are in the UK? If so I suggest Play.com and you can get the Limited Edition for £25 with free PandP. I love this EP, more than Generations and it really is up there on my favourites list. I love a lot of the content that came with it - Gameplay and Furnishings/Clothing!

£25? Sold! Ta!

In respect to the social side, like what has been said, it's not drastically changed so I'm not too bothered about it, I think how they develop it will be interesting, and I think will be the basis for the Sims 4!

I think it's a foregone conclusion that a lot of the features they're adding after the fact to Sims 3 will be base game features for Sims 4.

Don't have it yet, so I can't give my first impressions yet. However, I wanted to share something awesome with y'all! I was going to order from Origin the regular one for $39.99 plus tax. I decided to check Amazon's prices out before ordering, I'm glad I did! I got Katy Perry's edition for $29.99 plus shipping and handling was $9 so to sum it up, I got the KP edition for the same price as I was going to spend on the regular on Origin! Thank you Amazon!!  ;D Actually it was a little cheaper because Origin's was $39.99 plus tax where with Amazon, my entire order including tax was $39.97!

Have not yet had my sim play elsewhere ; though I put her up for it. However, being an avid fan of Bridgport, I find SS a very nice place to live. SO, I)'m torn between the two.
 In SS you can compete at simfests. My sim beat the top dog (she was level 7 singer and he was lvel 8) .
However, in other towns, there is no one else competing. So if you want to go for the new careers (singer, acrobat, magician) you need to be in SS.
To live with my love for Bridgeport, I use twallan's traveller mod and my sim practically lives in both cities. In fact, she befriended a unicorn (male, white) in SS and went to perform in Bridgeprot and befriended a female unicorn (white) who she took back to SS with her.
Love twallan's mods!

Cool! I can't wait to check out SS! SV is still my fave (UC is still laggy for me even with my new GC  :'( ) so I look forward to maybe getting into SS! I've never used mods and not going to start now.

The things I like in this EP are:
- The new supermarket
- The new school
- Some of the Venues
- New hair
- New stuff
EPs like Ambitions and Showtime requires that you spend alot of time doing specific things in the game. I enjoy playing freely  the family aspect of the game.
I'm not dissapointed, I'm just not interested in it. :)

Why would there be equestrians in an expansion Pack that has nothing to do with animals?

I must admit since ive had showtime, I havent really gotten into it as much as some of the other EP's...
I do however love the new clothes and objects that came along with it; I love that my party rooms can now have a pool table!
So far ive tried the singer and acrobat out but my Singer kept getting stuck on stage and I end up having to reset her!
I havent really tried out the social side Showtime yet but it looks like its not too in your face and I enjoy seeing all the badges ive earnt so far.
One thing im a bit dissapointed about is that they didnt add a new photography collection (unless i just havent discovered it yet?)

The one you need is the Pets expansion pack.  There are equestrian Sims in it.

I do like the pack, but currently I have no singers, acrobats or magicians. I always take months, sometimes years to fully explore a new EP. For now I just got bored with it. All the sing-o-grams and stuff. I do really like all the clothing, hairstyles and objects in the pack. Maybe I'll go explore more later.

You don't have to do the sing- o- grams. I just ignore them and let my sim sig for tips and do gigs.

Don't you need to be at least level two or something to get gigs, or do you just get the experience by singing for tips?
