De franstalige Jeux Video heeft een nieuw deel (deel 9) online gezet van een serie over een bezoek van een grote groep Sims fan aan de Maxis studio’s.
Dit keer gaan het over de vele stemmetjes die allemaal ingesproken moeten worden en we zien 1 van de bekendste stem acteurs van de Sims: Nikki Rapp. Deze video, jammergenoeg in het frans ingesproken, kun je op deze pagina bekijken.
En hier een rijtje van de eerdere delen op You Tube:
Gisteren meldde ik al in dit blogbericht dat de Engelse EA site een Sims 3 event heeft georganiseerd waarin veel fansites Sims 3 konden spelen en vragen van spelers hebben beantwoord.
Inmiddels is er weer erg veel nieuwe informatie van die dag online gekomen en op deze pagina van SimPrograms vindt je alle nieuwe informatie mooi op een rijtje.
Hier slechts een paar voorbeelden:
Pregnancy lasts 3 days no matter what the life span. For the first day they don’t show at all. At the start of the second day, they will “realise” they’re pregnant, and change into maternity wear, but if you look at them they don’t really have much of a belly yet. The belly then expands gradually over the next 48 hours.
Is there more flexibility in the types of roofs? Can we adjust the angle of them?There is definately a lot more that we can do with roofs now. Both usual and diagonal roofs are available to you, aswell as round and hexagonal roofs for turrets and towers.
Also there is a slider for roof angle which should be great since there won’t be any cheats involved now. One thing I also noticed is that roofs are automatically added to storeys that don’t have many floor-tiles above them. Atleast that way those of us who are prone to forgetting to place roofs on after building won’t end up with a house full of rain or snow if we get weather later on.
To learn to cook new recipes, your Sim has to buy recipe books from the book store. Each recipe book has a cooking skill level that will be required for your Sim to learn the new recipe from reading the book. Each recipe has set ingredients and if you don’t have those in your fridge you can just pay some amount from your funds rather than having to go to the store to fetch them. Like in Seasons from TS2, you can grow crops to use or sell.
– In the open neighbourhood is it really possible to go up to houses whose occupants you don’t know and look in through their windows?
It is kind of possible. If the house is empty you can go right up to it but if it is occupied then anywhere within the lot grid you get the option to visit that family. You could maybe spy on them through a side window that is close to the edge of the lot.
– How do the parties work? Are there any new parties to plan?
Parties seem easier to make a success than in The Sims 2. You can hold them at home or hire a public area to hold them in. I held one at home and one at the beach and both went well with limited input from the party host. You can also choose what time you wish the party to start and what the dress code should be.
At the times that I chose to throw these parties there were no additional options as to what kind of party they should be but they did not coincide with any milestones so this could be why.
– How do you switch between families?
You can change the family that you are playing by using the Active Household button. In the information screens it does say that if you elect to change the playable family then your current ones will have their wishes and opportunities removed. Then those Sims will continue to age and live as normal while you are playing the new family
Ik denk dat er later meer online komt dus hou dit Sims 3 Nieuws blog in de gaten.
