Sims 3.

The third stand-alone game in the Sims series will feature a new engine, which EA has been slaving away at for three years, and the biggest new feature will be the ability to seamlessly move around an open neighbourhood.

Previous games in the Sims series were expanded by packs such as The Sims: Hot Date, and The Sims: Vacation, which let gamers take their sims on holiday or into town with a beau, for example, but these communal zones were always separate from sims’ abodes.

In the next game, the sims will be able to walk freely around their neighbourhoods, visit their pals, and venture to new locations such as City Hall and the local park.

There will also be a “deeper” system for governing how sims behave, called the Realistic Personality System, which will let gamers manipulate five character traits when creating their sims. This opens up a number of possibilities, or as EA puts it: “Will you create the nosy, inappropriate, kleptomaniac grandmother who loves to meddle in other people’s business? Or the commitment-phobic, hot-headed punk rocker whose rude nature and childish disposition keeps him from scoring a date?” Apparently, 700 million different combinations await.

Customising both the sims themselves and the items around them will also become an easier and deeper experience, EA says. The upgrades include fine tuning for every part of sims’ faces, and a new set of design tools for customising items for their houses.

The first Sims game was released in 2000, and since then the series has sold some 98 million games worldwide, and has been translated into 22 different languages.

The Sims 3 is being developed by Electronic Arts Redwood Shores and will be shipping worldwide on the PC in 2009. There is no mention of it coming to any console platforms.

What if you had to live your whole life in one location… and then one day, suddenly, you could step outside and go anywhere in the whole neighborhood?

The Sims 3 gives you the freedom to create unique Sims and immerse them in your own living neighborhood of endless possibility!

New Seamless, Living Neighborhood – Your Sims explore the living neighborhood freely.

New Create A Sim – Create any Sim you can imagine.

New Realistic Personalities – Every Sim is now a truly unique person, with a distinct personality.

New Unlimited Customization – Everyone can customize everything.






Updates on the Sims 3 features

Neighborhood:
– Seamless Nhood: Your Sim can visit neighbors, parks and shops without a loading screen.
– All the neighboring Sims will live their life and age simultaniously as your Sim (They’ll get married, get jobs,etc).
– The game will ship with 1 Neighborhood.
– That Nhood will consist of about 97 different lots.
– When the game is out, you can download towns, made by other people.
– All buildings in the Nhood can be interacted with, so no prop buildings.
– Confirmed community places are: Pool, Park, Bistro, Clothing store, City Hall and Bookstore.
– The Nhood can expand by users and/or by expansionpacks.
– You can zoom out to see the whole Nhood at once or zoom in to a single Sim.

Sims:
– Personality sliders are reduced from 8 to 3, one being a Fun to Stress meter. Bladder, Hygiene, etc. are still there but hidden.
– Sims 3 have Traits. Choose 5 from around 80 types like Dreamer, Evil, Playful, etc. These Traits will affect how a Sim behaves towards others and affects their moods, like the mood of an Outdoorsperson will raise when he/she is outside. An evil Sim may slap another Sim.
– Traits could be passed down, and actions a Sim does during her pregnancy will affect the traits of her offspring.
– Moodlets instead of a moodbar. If something happens like a marriage, the Sim gets a moodlet. These moodlets will affect your Sims’ mood and give abilities like learning faster. An example: Getting fired will get you a long lasting, big impact moodlet, while going to a small party will get them a short, non-dramatic moodlet.
– They will look after themselves better.
– Sims have certain skills like cooking or fishing.
– You can fulfil needs by simply clicking on an icon.
– Instead of fixed interaction (like Talk or Joke), the options are filtered on your current Mood or your Traits.
– Sims can aquire Dreams. Like if your Sim sees that a Neigbor has a big tv, your Sim can get a Dream to want one too. You decide then, to turn it into a Promise. Ignoring a Dream is ok, but ignoring a Promise gives you negative repercussions.

Careers/Jobs:
– You can follow your Sim in its car to work. You won’t see your Sim working though; He/She will disapear in the building.
– Advancing in career is changed as it depends on skills, personality, relationship with colleagues/boss and even certain goals that has to be fulfilled. For example taking work home.
– 2 Confirmed careers are Cooking and Science.
– Sims can take part-time jobs.

CAS:
– Body can be shaped as faces were in Sims 2.
– There are sliders for weight and fitness.
– Arm and legs are seperate so you can have a fat body and thin arms.
– Sims you created fat, can become thin by exersizing, thin created people get fat by eating a lot.
– You can choose specific Asian and African models.
– You can choose a Sims’ favorite color, music type, food, etc.
– Shoes are seperate and can also choose barefoot.
– Clothes are customizable from CAS; Change the color of a certain piece of clothes or use your own patterns.

Misc:- Sims can cook and fish. Buy groceries or grow the food yourself.
– The game has been made so that will also run smoothly on older PC’s.
– Clothes, furniture and homes can be customized.
– You can use your own patterns/colours and then apply it to anything through a drag-and-drop interface.
– The game will have modding tools built into it.
– There’s no online multiplayer
– You can pick up items (garbage, books,etc) yourself with a Hand cursor.
– Wind will move the trees.
– Paintings that a Sim makes, will be unique to each Sim. It’s based on its personality and mood.

Things that will not change:
– Sims still talk in Simlish
– Sims can still pee their pants, die of hunger, etc.
– Confirmed ages: Baby, Children, Adult, Elder.
– There are still thought bubbles that tell which needs must be fulfilled like Hunger. These bubbles show in the control panel though and not hover over the Sims’ head.
– Sims still have an inventory system to put things in like groceries.
– There will be expansions (duh).
– There are still same-sex couples and they can still adopt children.
– You can still design, build, and furnish a home.

    my main Q(out of loads of them) is how pregnancies work. From what I know, they have the babies in hospitals…but do they still have the 3-day thing? can the babies be born early and look like they were pre-mature? how about how they GET to the hospitals? lots of ways it could work…I can’t wait though!!!!!

  15. it's true. Says:

    It’s most definetely real.
    The Sims 3 already has a site up, which is where the pictures were probably found as there are many of the same.

    But, I do have a question. Where was that article found at the end of the video? I’d really like to read it.

  16. SimsFreak Says:

    I think it looks prety cool i don’t know about ya

  17. Jezebel Says:

    This is definetly real. EA announced that there will be a Sims 3 and there is a Sims 3 website.

  18. Ashton Says:

  21. reborn2603 Says:

  22. Caroline Says:

    What kind of screen card do we need, do anyone know?

  23. SimGuy3 Says:

    We know it will come out on the computer but what about the consoles? what console(s) will Sims 3 come out on?

  24. danielle :) Says:

    i was looking on some websites, and it said it will probably not come out on console.

    anyway, who here thinks the sims 3 is completly ridiculous! its a game, and the new sims looks like real life, i saw a picture of a car and i thought it was a photo! i mean, some of the new things are cool, like no loading screens. but com eon! why play the sims when you can have your own life? i think its getting way to stupid.

    reply, if anyone agrees. danielle x

  25. Micheal Jones Says:

    hi everyone,
    i am a big fan of the sims and i was ever since it came out. i play the game 24/7 and eversince more and more expansions came out i got them all. you name it. even my gf likes the sims. i cant wait till the sims 3 comes out because i do consider that the biggest improvement in the game is the neighborhood. being able to walk around the nhood in the sims was always my dream. i cant wait till its out, i will be your first customer ea games and maxis. and whoever said its a fake, knock yourselves out!

  33. emogirl Says:

    hellow

  34. What What?! Says:

    Ahh this game looks amazing. You who said it’s rediculous…well your gay and they better make it for the consoles. I too read an article about it and they said they would be making it for XBOX 360,PS3, and possibly the Wii. :]] Although I would like it to be on PS2 but I’m not sure it will happen. :/ Oh well this game makes me excited.

  35. Dark Knight Says:

    Man I can’t wait for that. Looks awesome. I hope it’s on PS2 too. I don’t have an xbox 360 or wii. Or ps3 (which are gay). This game looks tight though. The people don’t look all weird anymore. I also hope if they make it for other consoles they don’t take out a bunch of stuff like they did in the sims2 for ps2 and gamecube. They need to make it to where it’s as fun as the pc one for everyone. whether it be on xbox 360 or ps3 or 2

  36. Anonymous Says:

    will the sims 3 come out in a mac version, will sum1 tell me please?

  37. Minor Blood Says:

    It’d be cool if they made it to where you had to teach the babies how to say mama and dada and stuff you know?

  38. kira-kira Says:

    This is going to be sooooo awesome! The sims 2 is getting kinda boring (especially because all of the people you make end up looking white). The only problem I have with the sims 3 is that the people’s faces look fat. I’ll probably be able to change that though.

  39. tybo Says:

    I stilll dont understand how the mood meter thingy works, i’ve been playing since the beginnin, but will they say in a speech bubble if they have to piss? Confusing!!!!! Example, someone needs to piss and they just piss where they are?

    Someone give an example

  40. tybo Says:

    also why do we wanna buy it when we spent like 250 $ on the expansions!??!!

  41. lana012 Says:

  45. caitlyn Says:

  46. CAITLYN Says:

    alll though it i spent like a lot of mony on the other sims but now im not going to play wit them because of the sims 3 but now thats like a waaste and i cant sell them because everone going to want the sims 3 not the old ones and also i still have another year wit them until the sims 3 i am upsecced with the sims i wonder if there is going to be a sims 4 ohh well but lke i want ot buy somemore sims 2 games but i dont want to bc i dont want to waste my money bc i might be playing the sims 3 so much that i will forget about any of the sims 2 ?????CONFUSSED????

  47. Anonymous Says:

    all though in the sims 2 ur either fat or skinny or really black or really white i mean i cant mak a black person becasue it makes them to dark and i cant make a white person bc there way to white theres like no perfect colors i cant wait till the sims 3

  48. NoMoreMrNiceGaius Says:

    Omfg…
    Why the hell are half of the people posting here unable to form correct or even logical sentences??? Didn’t you people go to school? I’m not even a native speaker and my English is better then yours… tststs… Y’all suck…

    As for The Sims 3:
    It all looks pretty great, but what bugs me a little is the thing about neighboring sims aging too while you play. In the Sims 2 i always created a house full of potential family friends for all my sims, that is now no longer possible. Also, I precreated future Partners of my sims and built them up till I thought they were suited for my sim, then gave them alot of elixir of life and introduced them to my sim…. Not being able to do those things will suck imho…

  49. Jade Says:

    The Sims 3 will be available world wide from 20th February 2009. You can also get the Collector’s Edition which has a load of stuff with it, including an in game Italian sports car, and if you pre-order the Collectors Edition you get another in game car too.
    I can wait!!

Theese are just rumors im not 100% sure on it. and there is a pic on the internet with (child) girl and boy playing on swings and on a slide, read that the boy and girl is Bella and Mortimer Goth. so the sims3 is a “prequal” to the regular sims and the sims 2 was a sequal to the sims

  83. Cody Says:

    Okay people on here are starting to piss me off. Either leave something you like about the game don’t trash other people how stupid is that? Also dont post useless comments. As for The Sims 3 it’s going to be the best of it’s series, reborn you did an awesome job on this blog, and for people who keep asking why they come out with expansions, it’s so you can get more stuff like in The Sims 2 They came out with University and you got a drumset and stuff, so thats why they come out with expansions

  84. me Says:

    I hat Ea how the hell can they move the game to the 6th of june a week before set to come out dunce bats, i’ll still by it an every single expansion packs, if they move it back again i’ll scream cause this is like the 3rd time they’ve don this how dear they. Does anyone know if there is an possibility it comeing out a bit earlier.

  85. me Says:

    oh and Cody if people want to do that it’s there decsission not yours, are you the king or something. just leave them every one has there own minds and its not illegal to make, to have a mind, look hun dont stress yoursel cause of other people

  86. me Says:

    also one more comment i promise, never by the sims on any other platforms, you will always get the best for your money on pc, as the game was created for computer, if you want to get it some wee else its your desission i am just saying the best place to play is on computer as it has everything to offer, if on hand held consoles of playstation, x-box etc. you will not receive the full affect of the game, i had sims 2 pets on wii and it is sooooooooooooo rubish, just a bit of advice, take it or leave it, please tell me what you think of my comment.

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  98. hvac repair cincinnati Says:

    Very interesting read. I am a articleger myself and of lately I have found that managing my own article has been a pain in the neck, especially for those technical jargon i have to solve. I recently found a new websiteging community where you can just setup a website and forget about it. Check it out, might be useful later

  99. antique furniture restoration Says:

    I’ve been surfing online greater than three hours these days, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely price sufficient for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet might be much more useful than ever before.
