Looking Ahead to "The Sims 3"

By October 23, 2007

Follow me on:

There are only a couple expansions left for "The Sims 2" before we start hearing about "The Sims 3." Realizing we were so close a completely new "The Sims" game got me thinking about what I would like to see. Mostly I want the Sims to act more like individuals. Not every Sim should sit on the couch the same. Doing two tasks is needed. Sims should be able to tell when a child isn't theirs - especially if the kid doesn't even begin to look like the father.

What would you like to see in "The Sims 3?" Leave a comment and let's discuss!

Update: March 6, 2008 - "The Sims 3" will be revealed by Maxis on March 19.

u should see more social options and better outfits…and able to give birth to children.

October 24, 2007 at 4:47 pm
(2) kec12 says:

I think teens should be able to get pregnant, Also, for people to get married in college and have kids.Also, I think it should be easier for a mother to get pregnant. Like instead of two options- Woo Hoo and Try For Baby, It should just be more random. This is real life people! Well, kinda…

i think there should be more stuff for the teens like twe make the kids and make them the paenrts

(4) fiberglassdolphin says:

I’d like Sim personalities to be more apparent in Sim behaviors. I don’t know why my sloppiest Sims are always demanding a shower. I’d also like the passage of time to be more apparent. Floors should get dirty, furniture should get stained and dusty over time. Paint should chip off the walls and cobwebs should build up in rooms that aren’t used. Trees and grass should grow. Also, more diversity in Sim sizes and body types.

(5) ....... says:

i think teens should get pregnant….itll be more real. i think moms should actually get to go to the hospital and push out the aby i would like to visit my neighbors houses and actually drive and its true anbot the pregnancy being more random, i think they should get their period and have to buy pads and stuff lol….and it would be so funny the sims getting stained…what else? oh! for the mom to be able to hti their child when they are doing something wrong and have murders…itll be so cool

October 28, 2007 at 10:48 pm
(6) Anna says:

You know guys play this game too. I agree with moms going to the hospital to have a baby and auctally driving. I think you should also get to go with newlyweds on their honeymoon. There should be careers like actor, model, or other things that make you famous. You should be able to go to work with your sim or to school. A hair salon would be great too so you can change your hair and socialize with others. I also agree with teens being able to get pregnant. I think teens and adult should be able to “go out” with each other. I don’t think it should be random because when I want my sims to have a baby I don’t want to have to woohoo 27 times before it’ll happen.

October 29, 2007 at 12:20 pm
(7) Chesley says:

I think what it should be like totally like real life..i think you should be able to drive to ur neighbors house and drive to the grocery store and actually buy what u want..and more object options and things of that nature..like where people says you should havehave to clean up everything the floor and everything…and you shouldnt have to be in love to Woohoo cause u know people theses days dont…and i think on sundays you could have the option to go to Church and could pick ur religion..

October 29, 2007 at 12:28 pm
(8) CC says:

Sims clothes should get dirty and they should have washers and dryers to clean and dry them. And if the sims are poor and can’t afford it they should be able to wash their clothes by hand and dry them on a line outside their home. Oh yeah and wind should blow in the game too.

October 29, 2007 at 5:59 pm
(9) Emily Wright says:

I think sims should be allowed to have mixes genes , like perhaps not just green eyes , GREENISH BLUE eyes , or dark blonde hair or light brown , something like that.
Genes should be more spread apart , and people should be taller than others – not just EVERY ADULT THE SAME HEIGHT , weight too even.
More weather , and neighbours growing older too , (the neighbours you didn’t create)
like , if your teen sim has a girlfriend then he grows up , she should grow up too so they can live together , or something.

October 30, 2007 at 3:03 pm
(10) Pauline says:

What i would like to see is more life-like medical problems, like, Asthma Diabetes, ADHD and childhood ailments such as Measles & Chickenpox, have trips to the doctors and/or hospitals to get other injuries treated, such as when they fall off their bike or get into something a little more serious like having surgery for a broken leg, the list is endless!, I would also like to see better objects for sale, i.e. sweeties/candy, better toys, clothing accessories like hats, scarfs, gloves etc, more TV channels for the right age criteria, horror/adult films to be shown after the 9pm watershed, have them decorate their own house rather than us doing it all the time lol! but i think the main one I’d like is to have some of the neighborhood objects in our own yard and have the choice of where we have our house, like at the beach or in the mountains etc i know u can have a holiday home with the Bon Voyage ep, but I’d like it for where i live, also when u open up up a home business, u should be able to have all the objects you get on the community lots, i think it would make playing the game much more realistic :D

October 30, 2007 at 4:13 pm
(11) Mimi says:

Ok Teen pregnancy whould be cool because it could happen in real life, and teens and adults dating too but, that person that wrote periods and pads thats just grows. And to hit your kid if they do something wrong what, did you get when you were a kid or something come on thats a little weird don’t you think?

October 30, 2007 at 4:18 pm
(12) Mimi says:

Hey it’s me again I also forgot to put this in there, I love the idea were you can go to church and stuff! oh and they should make this stuff also for sims2 thats the only games i play and i don’t think they should stop making sims2 games that whould be stupid because i’d have to delet all the sims2 games to play sims3 so my labtop wouldn’t freeze up on me or something.

October 30, 2007 at 4:58 pm
(13) Shanikua says:

Hey it’s me your girl SHANIKUA! Mimi is so right Teen pregnancy and teen and adult dating and woohoo and more body images and if i want to i should be able to pick that in skins or a wolf and plant people

October 30, 2007 at 5:04 pm
(14) leanne says:

yer i think they should keep the sims2 going instead of bringing a sims 3, but i suppose that if they are going to add more graphics and change it its the best thing to do ha ha! yer they should have teen pregnancies and adult/teen relationships. and i also think we should be able to rive the car instead of it just popping into the place that u want to go to. going to church and the doctors (and places like that) would be great too! make it more realistic! and have them wash their clothes and decorate their houses!

October 31, 2007 at 3:52 pm
(15) CC says:

I agree with different sizes and heights. But also their voice. We should be able to choose how high and deep we want are sims to sound. And I think more age groups too, like pre teens. And instead of going from toddler straight to child, there should be like pre schooler or something. And we should know what grade their in, 1st 6th 12th, you know. Also kids should have asripations too. They could want to save up money to buy a toy or something. And the teen pregnancy thing they may not do that, because it may be promoting the wrong thing. And it may change the rating of the game to M not T. And parents want let there kids buy it. Which means the company might lose money. I dont know, but I hope they make Sims 3 more real. And I hope one of the EP are having a farm and farm animals. I always wanted that since Sims 1. I wish there was a way we could put the families we have on Sims 2 to Sim 3. So we can still have them.

November 1, 2007 at 2:14 pm
(16) Courtney Marchelletta says:

“And it may change the rating of the game to M not T. And parents want let there kids buy it. Which means the company might lose money.”

CC, In a perfect world, maybe changing the rating to M would mean less sales. There are plenty of kids out there playing first person shooters that shouldn’t be. I don’t think adding teen pregnancy should change the rating. It is after all, a teen issue. I don’t see it being added. There’s always hack if you really want it.

November 2, 2007 at 6:17 pm
(17) Kremena Spasova says:

I would like to see more clothes when you make a sim.I would also like to see more cars,furniture,make up,hair styles.And i would like if the sims make different moves when they flirt.

November 2, 2007 at 6:21 pm
(18) Kremena Spasova says:

I totally agre with Chesley and Pauline.

November 3, 2007 at 6:12 pm
(19) Angelsknyt says:

Ok guys/gals, when you talk about teens and adults having sex, I hope you don’t mean with each other. And even though teen sex is an issue, would you encourage a child to keep sticking a fork into an electrical socket? I would like to see some time passages such as trees growing older, also, some health concerns would be interesting. More body types, etc… And in regards to menstruation, I don’t want my gigabytes bogged down with tampads and toilet paper. It’s just a game for crying out loud. Woohoo!

November 4, 2007 at 1:19 pm
(20) brooke says:

I think that teens should get pregnate like the others do.i think that the floors get dirty,u can opan and shut the curtains and windows you have storms basments more outfits,and more things for the baby like play pens,princess things,more outfits,and was too punish the children when somethin is wrong.i also think there should be more objects too make houses,more hair stalys more clothing and better houses i also think that you can sweep the house,have fans,have coats,coat hangers,hang your close,in side dreser in the walls with dorrs and stuff like that i hope you pick mine and i hope the pets have a place in that 2 and i think vacation spots should be in thise too thank.

November 5, 2007 at 11:43 am
(21) CC says:

“And even though teen sex is an issue, would you encourage a child to keep sticking a fork into an electrical socket?” Thank You Angelsknyt.

They are not going to put teen pregnancy on the game because it is a teen issue. So stop hoping for it, because it’s not going to happen. Courtney you can’t say “It is after all, a teen issue.” and then encourage people to use the hack, come on. Anyway, they should put more skin tones, more tv stations, and it would be fun if the sims could have cable and get billed for it. Kids should have back packs instead of bringing home a little note book ( You know kids have more homework then that in real life). And hopefully they have kids sitting on the bus ,like the neighborhood kids, instead of the kids disappearing when they walk on the bus.

“They are not going to put teen pregnancy on the game because it is a teen issue. So stop hoping for it, because it’s not going to happen. Courtney you can’t say “It is after all, a teen issue.” and then encourage people to use the hack, come on.” calm down CC making teens being able to have sex would make it be more “realistic” and if enough ppl say they want it then they will probably put it in. Your talking about the game being more “realistic” think about it. Are adults the only ppl able to have sex and get pregnant? So if you really don’t think they should get pregnant but the creators put it in the game anyway just don’t play. ;) I also think that you should be able to be the kid and go to the school and actually sit there and eat lunch and hang out with friends and be a genius, or you could be a complete idiot, be a loner, and bully the weaker students for answers and money.

November 10, 2007 at 4:21 am
(23) Jazlaan says:

It would be nice if the sims actualy work in building the house and call the movers to move too.And also make it entirely lifelike.

November 10, 2007 at 6:41 am
(24) ------- says:

i agree with chesley, mimi and leanne

November 10, 2007 at 12:50 pm
(25) courtney says:

i would like to see in the sims 3 that it will be more like us so more human like,so it would have better objects and pets also cars to go places like a swimming pool and you get to control them and you can go to school with the children and not homework everyday,also you can go to work with the sims.

November 10, 2007 at 10:47 pm
(26) Christy says:

I’d like it to take less time to go to the bathroom and take a shower. In real life, no one spends that much time showering. I’d also like to be able to spend more time in town or on vacation or whatever away from the house and not get so tired. I know it’s supposed to be somewhat realistic, but it’s not really fun to have to worry about all that stuff. It would be cool to have a switch where you could play either way.

November 12, 2007 at 8:32 am
(27) Courtney says:

CC, I should have been more clear. When I said teen issue, I meant that it is something that teens know happen and need to make the right decisions to avoid. In no way would I advocate teen pregnancy. It is a part of the real world. Some players have storylines they want to play out. That’s their choice.

November 12, 2007 at 4:22 pm
(28) Stina says:

I’m still on The Sims 1….haven’t even gotten to Sims 2 yet!
But if 2 doesn’t have this—it would be cool to have more than two levels in a house.

November 15, 2007 at 4:09 am
(29) shannen says:

i would so like to see teen pregnancy in the sims 3 because its a common thing these days and all them teens wnting to have a baby could see how hard it is so they wouldnt want to do it anymore and i agree with the moms being able to hit th echildren because it just makes it more real or even hitting the dad or the other way around so please put all that stuff in it please

November 18, 2007 at 2:24 pm
(30) Elisha says:

I think there should be: playing sports in your garden,taking drugs,more animals;cows,horses,rabbits e.g,You should see your sims at work and school and control their movements,Royalty,Celebs,freshen up;Put on make-up,brush teeth and hair e.g,Theme parks,coosing what time you want it to be like victorians or the 8os,mythical creatures,cruise ships,sims laugh at ugly sims and fancy pretty sims,gangs,hitting kids,murders,sims should be able to walk around the neighbourhood,take toddlers and babies for walks in prams,teeth should rot if not brushed,washing clothes and finnally bring Bella Goth back!!!

(31) lesle-ann roberts says:

well i think you should be able to go anywhere you want without you have to load anything, it would be easier if you could just walk across the street to your Neighbors house or the the flowers shop it would save alot of time.

November 24, 2007 at 3:25 pm
(32) renee says:

sims should also be able to have injuries at work, you kno come home with a broken arm or leg.

November 30, 2007 at 6:08 am
(33) Alexis says:

i just really want to be able to go to school with the teens and u know u could be like emo or a jock or cheerleader it qould be sooo kool and like have more places to go in town…and for like the girls boyfriend to come pick her up for a date and u can go on the date with her..and she can go get her l’s and sutff,and like the kids and the teens have like ballet or football games or cheerleading practice,and more real life drama like the boys or girls have there boyfriends or girlfriends sneak in,mom and dad have arguements,and u can go to work with them and really work,and have more jobs to choose from,other than that more real life thx u and bye

(34) Robert says:

Makin’ Magic was my favorite EP for Sims 1. I would like to see it resurrected in the Sims 3. Also, having the choice of living on different planets or on the moon would be cool.

December 11, 2007 at 2:50 am
(35) Robert says:

Oh yea, I forgot to mention that the “Secret Society” thing from “Sims University” should exist in Sims 3 too.

December 11, 2007 at 9:55 am
(36) Chad says:

I think that the Sims 3 should have more customization of everything. It is quite easy to make a floor tile that is either glossy or mat, but then be able to choose the grain of wood, or colour of carpet from a swatch or selector. The paint on the walls should be 5 gloss finishes then choosing a colour from a pallet not just picking from 20 colours.

Furniture should be able to move to any degree of rotation like real life. Why is EVERYTHING tied to the stupid grid. I know there is a hack for a 45 degree angle, but make it any degree. I should also be able to put a thow on my couch too, or a laptop on my coffee table and use it.

I get that there aren’t infinite options available from objects, that would be impossible, but making an object such as a couch, then overlaying a colour choice on a set of 4 fabric options would be quite easy to program.

I don’t really care about teen pregnancy, it’s wrong, I see too much of it where I live to want it in my game. Trust me, when you guys grow up, you’ll think it’s wrong too. I just don’t think you should keep asking for it, it’s not going to happen.
- Pads / Tampons, sick dude or lady.
- Farm stuff … interesting idea.
- Height and Weight differences ESSENTIAL.
- Skin tones should be customizable
- Pick an outfit type THEN pick pants, shirts, shoe colours.

(37) CarlieV says:

mmm…first off, about the teen preg. I dont condomn it but I do think its an interesting idea. I hate people sitting up here and acting like they have all the answers…no disrespect, but the question was “what would YOU like to see in “The Sims 3″? and if peopele want to see teen pregnany and thats the way they feel I dont think that anyone should say “They’re not going to put teen pregnany in so stop asking for it” no, thats no ones call. After all, you can have sex before marriage, have an affair, create homosexual relationships, become a prof criminal, fight, and have babies out of wedlock, communicate with the dead, see ghost…all are very contro issues and yet, they still included all of that, Im not understanding why they wouldnt put teen pregnancy in the game nor would I like to know, so no one needs to answer that for me. And thats the best part about sims, they make the impossible possible…who would have ever thought putting a cow plant in a game and make it entertaining. But yea, I think teen pregnancy would be cool. It would be a change and very interesting to see how our sims would react. Going over people houses would be wonderful. Just jumping in the car and surprising your best friend by showing up would be nice. I would like to see new body types- I hate those two types…they’re either fat or skinny, I’m neither and I would like to make a sim with some hips!!!! …lol- I would like to see more personality too…like your sim can be geeky, or a jock, or a pressy, or a silly person, you can kinda do that now, but you really cant tell the difference. I wanted my sim to be mean and she went around hugging people all day. Kinda the things that Courtney Marchelletta said,
…just them having their own styles. Having new careers would be nice too. I always want my sim to become a star and have people come up to them and ask for their autograph-lol…I think choosing a nationality would be cool…being greek, or america, mexican or japenese- or make up your own by mixing it up. I also would like to see Vactional spots to have their own community to where you can create sims and let them live in the vactional spots, and also have their own colleges so that your teen sim can “Go away” for college..for us, it would be like going to another county. Which brings a good point…I think sims who are already past the stage of going to college should be able to go back to college and to get a better job, if they are married and have a family already, they should take courses online, or even move their family to the community where their college is, or have a community college already where they live. IDK if they already have this option since I havent played Sims university and the vaction sims together yet (Ive been moving so i keep losing my sim games) but college sims should be able to go home for christmas break, or thanksgiving…that would be nice, giving your sims a break from school. I want the family to be more of a family…they actually did a better job at this since the first sims, but I want it to be better…like if a person is picking on someone, you can have their older sim come and back them up. Punishment should be givin to the younger sims like “No TV, or radio” or whatever- Idk about giving beatings tho…even tho that was a way of my family punishment, I dont know if I could bring my Papa Sim to woop little jimmy…that would be to sad for me- lol, but hey, the possiblities are endless, right? I’m excited about this

December 13, 2007 at 7:36 pm
(38) CarlieV says:

ooo…and when I said that I hated those two body types…I didnt mean like I hate fat or skinny people-lol- I just hate that those are the only options you have….all my sims look the same- even if I start them off as being bigger sims, they always end up skinny because of their job and skill points. ooo and how could I forget about Church!!! me and my mom were talking about one sunday on are way to chruch-lol… that would be nice…sitting down on the couch and ready their bibles…how cute would that be for a kid sim to sit down and read a picture book about Josephs colorful coat… and I think that they should have community events, like putting on plays…oooo and then at Vaction Spot, they should have different instuments and you know how in europe they have like shopping areas where they’re are entertainers and stuff, that would be cool!!! ooo…lol- I think I made myself a little too excited…let me stop before I get carried away too far

December 15, 2007 at 9:56 pm
(39) Eliana says:

Okay, my opinions are some obvious ones. Don’t judge me although I am 12. I think that while having ‘WooHoo’ the sims should have the option of wearing a condom. Teens should be allowed to get pregnant even though there is a cheat that Maxis frowns upon.. I think that we should really interact with the sim’s life like going to their job, having meetings, interacting with co-workers, and get promoted and demoted by doing or not doing assignments. Sims in college should be able to have kids. Also, what does Maxis have against Jews,Asians,etc. There should be a choice of culture,race, and stuff. Also, give the sims more bills. My mom pays mortage,electric,water,phone,car,and more.. Come on, one set of bills that are like $500 every two days? WOW.. Also, i think that there should be people in wheelchairs and mentally challenged sims. I love working with younger challanged kids even though it makes me cry.. The sims should live in exotic locations such as Hawaii, Japan, Africa, and ITALY !! They should be able to goto beaches like in Sims 2 Bon Voyage but there should be fish, sharks,and crabs. Also, if you have a gardens there should be rabbits, snakes, snails, and bugs. Like the bugs in Sims 2 Seasons. Also, there could be injuries like broken bones, headaches, backaches, stomach aches. There should be hospitals, post offices, resturants, and clubs like in Sims 2 Nightlife.. Also, sims should interact with their children like in real life.. Sadly my dad left my family and fails to give my mother money.. There should be divorces, affairs, cheaters, and more emotion!! But you could have the option to goto the kids’ schools and interact with teachers, guidance counselors, and assignments. Teens should be able to work and help their families.. Also, there could be more animals. I don’t live on the Sims 2 and NOBODY should.. We live in a beautiful world so don’t live in front of a computer.. Its a fun game that should be played once in a while. Don’t waste your money. Thanks for reading my opions.. God bless you – Eliana ( 12 )

The woman should have their periods and there should be miscarriages..

December 16, 2007 at 3:06 pm
(41) sophie:) says:

Hi. Well I agree with nearly everyone on here, even though teen pregancy is an issue and should be included, I doubt it will because Maxis will want it to sell and parents will stop their children buying it, because it might be “encouraging”. But it would be quite a nice addition.
Secondly, when The Sims 2 was being made, when I was just 9, me and my friend asked Maxis to include hopsitals and illnesses like AIDS, cancer and also broken bones, but I guess they never listened. This would be amazing!
As well as this, actually going places with your Sims like school and work and to other peoples houses would be amazing, I don’t understand why we can’t go to other people’s houses in any of the Sims! Also I would like to actually drive lmfao:)
I used to have a hack for periods, and trust me, it gets SO annoying. But as it was a hack, I bet Maxis could make it much better. But I dont know aha.
Miscarriages would be good, as would condoms, and also the idea that you can get pregnant anytime you have WooHoo. Because The Sims 3 is supposed to represent real life more than ever now and this is what happens in real life.
And Makin’ Magic/Superstar, that wasn’t realistic! So it shouldn’t be included.
Sorry if this is like MEGA long lmfao. :)

I’m surprised it hasn’t already been integrated, but I hope the “seasons” EP is an inherent feature of TS3! The Eternal Summer of TS2 is so boring.

(44) Jenny says:

I would like an entirely new type of gameplay. Instead of just playing one house at a time, I think they should take it to the next level. You play a city block at a time, with 3-4 lots on it, and control all the people in each house. They would stay on their prospective “lots” until you tell them to leave(kids go next door to play, block parties, etc.). So instead of playing one family at a time, you would be playing more like a small community at a time. I think they should take the focus off of needs so much, so they don’t have to constantly pee and shower and eat, etc. They added seasons, but I think they should add a sim calendar with maybe 6 simish months or so each lasting about 5 days. This way, we could have summer vacation! And maybe certain careers only work certain months of the year(teacher is off in the summer, construction worker doesn’t work in the winter, etc). I want a preschool aged sim and a young teen sim. The ages jump from about 2 to about 8, then to about 16! That’s not very realistic. I want spiral staircases, and maybe closets to store there clothes in instead of just wardrobes. Oh, yeah, HORSES! Horseback riding would be just awesome! I like the farm idea someone said too!

December 26, 2007 at 10:55 am
(45) Cherryflower says:

It would be just brilliant if the waiting time was shorter (you know the way you get that blue screen for 5 mins when you get your sims to go ‘downtown). If baby and toddlers could sit on Sim adults and teens knees both on sofas and chairs.. even on beds? If teens could get pregnant – if sim adults could ‘go steady’ with others more officially, and be less likely to fall in love with other sims with going steady. If Sim adults could kiss their kids goodnight.. just if it was more like real life – they’re so much they could do with the Sims 3.. like fix all the problems – slow movement..computer reseting problems.. waiting time.

(46) Lorand says:

I think that there should be washing machines and laundry baskets.Also how about washing their teeth and going to the dentist!Visiting the doctor before school.And how about a man’s needs!He should be able to polish his sceptre of love and use a condom when doing WooHoo!

December 26, 2007 at 2:54 pm
(47) Lorand says:

Has anyone even tought of Superheroes?Imagine your sims are doing what you tell them to do and then out of nowhere you hear an explosion and a sinister laugh-it’s the villain!Than the Superhero arrives and beats him up!I sudgest that the player should choose the Hero-Batman,Spider-Man,Superman etc.And what would be even cooler is to actualy be one yourself!It won;t be a career!Your ADULT sim will get hit by a lightning or something like that and he’ll have superpowers and they’ll earn money from the mayor himself!The bigger the treth the bigger the pay!Your hero should also be able to shop for costumes and train otherwise he’ll die from the “Treath”.

A few of the things I want in ‘The Sims 3′, if they make it, is…more age groups:newborn, infant, toddler 1 1/2- 2 1/2, preschool 3-5, child 6-9, preteen 10-12 ,teen 13-18, young adult 19- 25, adult, middle aged, old , elder. more body types like super skinny, skinny, petite, average, squishy, chubby, fat, obeise, athletic, muscley, body builder. more hair styles and hair should grow and you’ll have the option to get it cut, and facial hair should grow and you could shave. I would love to see grass grow and trees grow and age, then you could mow the lawn and trim the trees. You should be able to visit your neighbors, take a walk, there should be strollers and wagons so you could tote the kids along to the neighbors and on a walk. There should be life like medical issues and injuries and you could call an ambulance or go to hospital and have doctors appointments and such. Their should definitely be kids on the bus!! Your house should get dirty and dusty and you could clean it and you could track mud inside, and your clothes should get dirty so their would be washers/dryers and an old-fashioned ringer-washer, and a clothesline. You should be able to put your dishes in the sink or dishwasher until max capacity and then you have to wash them, for your untidy sims and those with a tendancy of procrastinating :) . You should be able to wash your hair in the sink, brush you teeth, sweep and mop, vacuum, dust all that stuff!!! You should be able to discipline kids, not with hitting but with time outs and groundings, or scold them make them do chores, all that stuff! You who said they should have periods and they could buy pads….OMFG! sick! why???!!!!
no they will not be doing a teen pregnancy or sex thing, get over it everybody! it may be more realistic but this is The Sims! a computer game people!!

thats all fellow simmers. peace.

p.s. i too hope they will make it so we could put our sims 2 familys in the sims 3…that would be cool…but it may be too diffucult and maybe even impossible…depending on how the graphics change…

i believe that they should create more expansions for sims 2 instead of a sims 3 b/c i love my families and i don’t wanna get rid of them. i agree with almost every other comment with the idea of going to work/school with the sims and going to neighbors houses and actually driving. but i have a few that werent mentioned like taking babies and toddlers to community lots (except for perhaps clubs of course!) and be able to take them to a daycare that you could create and actually pay for. it would also be cool to have your sims hair messed up when they get out of bed or just had a rough pillow fight! also for you to send a sim out the house for a set amount of time like to go to the movies or store so you could be at home alone or something. more emotions would be nice too. to have an option to surf the web or shop online. have holidays and put up a christmas tree or light candles. and the dishes piling up in the sink is a good idea too. more clothing and accessory options. texting! i could go on and on but the ea and maxis team know what we want and will do their best to bring it, so i cant wait to see what the future holds!

For sure all graphics must be improved. The sims 2 lacks good weather, even with the seasons ep. There should be wind, rain should get the whole ground wet not leave just puddles. The sun should rise and set, you should be able to see the sun. The windows inside should allow sun rays inside which will be visible on the floor. My sims should be life like. They should use different variations of interactions with objects. When they sit on the couch they sometimes lean against the back of the couch, sometimes they lean forward or cross their legs. My sims wont constantly repeat actions like drinking 1 cups of coffee a day. Their dishes and plates should be in a cabinet and when they have a dirty one and don’t feel like cleaning it they don’t just randomly put it on the floor, they put it on the counter. If there is a clear path between two objects a sim should be able to squeeze through an area smaller than 1 square. doors and windows can be placed without locking into the cames grid. more levels and foundations to build. Not every wall is the same hight. Curved walls would be nice. ceilings do exist! attics, basements ect. more pool types. Two story rooms should be recognized as two story rooms, With light, shadows ect. Lots placed in neighborhoods should act like a part of the neighborhood. You want to visit a neighbor, then just walk over. Trees will grow, but not in steps like TS2 does, where it will be 1ft tall then 2ft tall in the next second. Children grow into teens gradually, not in one day. sims change clothing by taking them off then putting new ones on. Objects don’t spawn. When a sim rakes the leaves they get a rake and do not magically get one. Custom content must still exist! or i definitely wont buy it. Lawns grow grass, gradually, then you need to mow it. There need to be clouds, some days are cloudy, some are partly cloudy. sims aren’t perfect, they walk different every times, they strip, they sneeze, cough ect. injuries happen along with diseases. some might limp or be on crutches. Light switches, eclectics, air conditioning, heating. Better architecture, like arches and floors aren’t hollow. Boolprop techniques are not needed for good building. The build mode should be more flexible. I seriously could fill a book! Thanks for reading my lengthy ideas!

I think that the sims should be more real…like the time goes alittle slower and when you do have a kid you have to go to the hospital and it doesnt just pop out. The sims shouldnt have to wear the same clothes everyday. They should have to do laundry and do the same we do…i think it makes it alot funner. So far right now i love the sims and i play it all the time but please just make it more realistic so more people would want to be attracted to it. Also when the kids have homework it takes so much of its fun down and they pretty much have no time to do anything so maybe not give the kids so much homework. I know i just cant wait till the sims 3 does come out..!!

I think it would be good if yu could build flats soo your sims can chap next door for some sugar etc.. also I would like if there were more jobs and you get a choice if yougo with your kids to school or the adults to work. So you can play them and help them to get a promotion or make friends etc..

Sorry just like to add something to my comment:

It would be good if you coud also be able to make a hotel and have the sims check in because in Open for business i tried to make a hotel but you could have people having there anything. Plus it means sims could invite other sims to hotels for dates etc..

(57) Allen says:

A lot of what people are asking for here is already available in “The Sims 2″ through mods that people have created for the game, including the controversial teen pregnancy. I don’t think it would make good marketing sense for MAXIS to include teen pregnancy by default in the game (they’d pick up too much flak from “family values” types). But player-created content will always accommodate those kinds of things, so look there first.

Another thing people have to realize when they ask for things like more/different animations, different heights, different body types, more ages is that these things have to be directly created by developers/animators/artists. (The reason there are so few body types/heights is because adding new ones means having to create new animations that line up properly. A short person hugging a tall person would require a different animation than two people of same height hugging.) It’s not a matter of “can’t” but how many they can create in the amount of time they have. Unless MAXIS releases a supported animation editor and body style editor (they didn’t for “The Sims 2″), those kinds of new things will always be tied to how many staff they have hired who can work full time to create them.

Some things I wish they could include in the next Sims game:

* apartments/multi-family homes
* many more things getting dirty or needing repair including clothes
* make objects and dwellings ownable by individuals or couples such that inheritance, stealing, permission to use, etc., can be incorporated into the game
* each individual should have a separate money account and multi-char accounts can be created/shared. This way kids won’t get access to an entire household’s money balance (and may plead for money if they don’t have much), and couples can fight over money. lol
* More character stats like greed/generosity, etc.
* And of course, a better AI! For instance the whole gossip thing whereby someone could tell a spouse/lover about their cheating hubby/wife etc was massively screwed up and never really worked right. Cheating without consequences became almost the norm as a result even when the cheated partner’s friends and relatives all knew about it. Better AI, better AI, better AI!

I don’t think you should be able to have teen pregnancy’s because i’m only 11 and if my parents ne that the teens can have s*x then they wouldn’t let me buy it and won’t with lot’s of kids. Here’s a list of what i think:
.apartments/semi detached houses
.Better play equpment for kids
.more clothes for when you make a sim and more faces/skins/eye colours
.You write down the persons age so then they can pick how heavy and how tall and what catergory the prson is in (example age: 11 this makes there height let’s say 5’2″ and you choose there wight and there catergory is preeteen)
.sims can become famouse
.The traits they inherit from ther families can’t just be green eyes instead of brown eyes. instead try a dark green.
.have a slower clock cause it doesn’t take one hour to have a shower. You can do that in 10 minutes. Instead one minute can be half a minute so it isn’t as long.
.obviousley still have the time speed
.go to school with children or nursery or mamma’s and baby. Be able to throw airowplanes at your teacher and be able to be the most popular in school. choose what lessons they have and there homework.
.be able to have vampires,zombies,werewolfs,robots and bigfoot in all games.
.be able to lock the door.

so what do you think. good ideas?

I think that the sims 3, like many people have said. should be more realistic, i think that instead of having straight stairs they should have the corner stairs. here is a list of wat i think it should have:

-snow, in winter and leaves fall from trees in autumn/fall
-rainy days, sunny days and windy days
-bigger nicer houses, with better acomadation
-appartmentas that u can share with other sims not created by u.
-u can live in a caravan park?
-be able to have a temerutae climate gage to see wen its hot or cold, and have heaters and air conditioners.
- have a washing machine/ driyer and clothers line
- lifts in ur houses for dissabled/older people
- beaches be able to live on boats in the water.
- be able to get new computers.
- a weekly newspaper that tells wen things are on and stuff.
- be a ble to control ur sim fulli and wen they need to go to the toilet let them go without us telling them to.
- being able to have windy roads in the neighbour hoods and big mall u can go to,
- be able to have a pond in the bakyard and have frogs living in it,

and to face of my opinions i would say that i go with what every body else says.

thks people. i no and hope that sims3 will be the best

(66) me says:

i think that you should make the sims and choose there age limet 1 day to 100 then a few days for them getting to know the place the teens and the adults get a meessage saying.”go to the polcie staion to get your driver’s licenes”. so you walk up to the police staion, then there’s a car so one sim gose in to drive, then you controll the car with the keyboard and mouse! then if you hit ten withes hats you fail if you hit less you get your drivers licence. Now when you go to dive somewhere you controll the car agin but becareful if you crash twice you have to pay for the damege and if both times the police catch you they might bring you to jail for a week and make you pay all your money and lose your car for 8 weeks.somtimes if your crashes are bad and street races hear about it they send you a message saying.”would you like to join us street races?”.so then you diced if you want to or not!

(69) fbjdnf says:

I think a lot of you are forgetting that the sims is not rated mature. So, to a lot of parents, it would be inappropriate for the sims to allow teen pregnancy, drug use, etc. And for most of the stuff like; not being in love to woohoo, random pregnancy, hair salon, eye colors and different clothes…mods help with that. I really would like for the sims to be able to go to work and school, and also visit neighbors. I think neighborhoods should be more detailed instead of having that spacey dreamlike background. I’m all for the DETAiLS :) _

January 17, 2008 at 8:13 pm
(70) chelsea says:

what i think should be in the sims 3:
-more heights and body shapes
-everyone should age gradually in stead of one day being a kid and the next a teen, and then there would more of a difference between adults in their 30s and the ones in their 50s. they would grow wrinkles and get grey hairs.
-apartments/town homes where you can play one family at a time.
-more social status like the super rich sims may dislike poor sims and the popular sims wouldnt want to be friends with the unpopular sims.
-real-estate, sims could have the choose to buy or rent a home. and sims could buy more than one home and rent it to other sims.
-better clothes cost more money.
-more illnesses and injuries and hospitals with doctors and nurses.
-high school clicks with teenagers.
-more roads in neighborhoods.
-sims could invest their money.
-more personality, each sim should do thing different because of their personality.
-better dancing.
-go to work/school with sims.
-a difference between love and lust(only if they go with more mature themes)
-growing grass and tress and lawn mowers.
-able to visit neighbors.
-local politics, sims can run and vote for other sims.
-furniture and objects should get old.
-clothes should get dirty.
-houses should get cobwebs and dusty over time.
-grass should dry out if it isnt watered.
-sims become famous for different reasons. garage band could make it big.
-acting/singing/dance lessons.
-sims should be able to knit, sew, ect.
-holidays should be celebrated on certain days. allowing trick or treating, easter egg hunts, ect. also stores should be closed on those days.
-talents shows at schools.
-tutors for struggling students.
-adult sims can go back to school.
-crime, sims can murder, steal, etc. and only smart ones can get away with it.
-more realistic vampires, zombies and stuff.
-neighborhoods can be in more places like the mountains, beach, really cold places.
-kids and parents have more interactions.
-teens get their permit and licence at certain ages.

oh and for all of you who really want teen pregnancy you can have it in the sims 2 with certain cheats, where sims and aldults can date also. just so you know.

We already have some of the stuff mentioned here. We have weather and seasons (falling leaves) from the EP seasons. We also have hotels, beaches, and walking to community lots in Bon Voyage EP. And in the new Freetime EP, sims will be able to sew, create pottery, play sports, and ballet dance. That EP also has hobbies! I love the idea of each sim in the house having a money account, say child and up. The kids could have an allowance!

(72) Holly says:

Everyone’s ideas are wonderful, and I’m VERY excited about the next installment of our favourite game, but something I’ve been thinking of is this: Will Wright’s next game, “Spore”, is on its way to the shelves itself, and I’m hoping that there will be a few things from that game in “The Sims 3″. In “Spore”, you’ll be able to take a spine skeleton and stretch it whichever way you’d like to have a character that is ANY SHAPE OR SIZE. Your choice!

Why not have this in “TS3″?! After all, they’ve already perfected the technology – but instead of a spine skeleton, just a normal human skeleton that you can add flesh to in ANY tone (kinda like the colour sliders on Photoshop or Color It!.) and manipulate any way you’d like. That way, we could HAVE females with smaller breasts and bigger hips, we could HAVE shorter or taller characters (instead of having to use the “stretch_skeleton” cheat every time we enter the same house.), we could HAVE wider legs or longer necks or so on and so on. (And this clay effect could be used for the face as well, instead of having the sliders to contend with. I’d personally love my Sims to not look SO SYMMETRICAL. :) )

The other thing that makes “Spore” seem REALLY interesting that should be incorporated is the fact that, however you make your creature, it will determine how he will walk and move and gesture and fight and dance . . . Why not have this be the same way with “TS3″ as well? If you make an adult Sim with really long legs and a short torso, they’ll walk wider and perhaps slower or faster than other Sims. If you make a child Sim with really long fingers, they’d do a little bit better on the piano than a child with stubby fingers. And so forth!

It seems that, considering they already have all this together for “Spore”, it definitely wouldn’t be a stretch for them to put it into “TS3″.

And another thing that has ALWAYS bothered me (as I’m sure it has many people!): There should be different sliders for your voice so you can tailor your Sim’s voice the way you’d like it. There could be a slider for pitch, breathiness / huskiness, speed, volume, et cetera.

With ideas like these, we could actually REALLY CREATE our Sims. At this point, I tend to find (as much as I absolutely love the game.) that most of my Sims end up looking EXACTLY THE SAME – and having the same voice and animations for everything doesn’t exactly fight my theory on that! I look forward to REALER Sims.

I woudln’t mind seeing customisable stairs. There should be 7 pieces to stairs. All of the 7 should have the same customisable designs as well.

a 0/4 to 1/4 stairs
b 1/4 platform
c 1/4 to 2/4 stairs
d 2/4 platform
e 2/4 to 3/4 stairs
f 3/4 platform
g 3/4 to 4/4 stairs

Using these – u can create many designs in stairs like the long awaited ‘U shaped (acddeg).

also Nialan said what about loans and credt cards.

I disagree with making sims 3 making more life-like than ever. Sims 2 is already boring enough. Where is something like Makin’ Magic for the Sims 2?!?! Nothing like a dose of fantasy to liven up the game. I see every day life everyday… *yawn*

The other thing that is ESSENTIAL is shorter loading times between each hood/lot/CAS/different hood/lot again/etc pp. I really hope Sims 3 is faster. Every other game I play loads in a couple of minutes max and Sims 2 is such a drag in this area. It’s extremely irritating and makes me really think about when I will have TIME to actually play. I have to designate a day for it otherwise it’s just not worth firing up the game.

February 4, 2008 at 5:17 pm
(80) the dude says:

From the one interview I’ve seen with a Sims 3 developer, it sounds like he is focusing on making each sim into more of an individual person. And I think that is the most important thing they could do, since it is the feature most lacking in Sims 2.

All of the stuff here about new objects or actions is fine and good, but the heart of the game is the way that sims interact with each other, and the opportunities they are given to do so. And that’s where the core of the development effort needs to go:

–Personality types should do more to drive interactions. In other words, some sims just really have an aversion or attraction to each other. The current game has a weak version of that, but it needs to be central to the next game.

–That initial aversion or attraction should be modified by subsequent events. For example, if your playing sim invites a sim neighbor over and they don’t have a good time, then the overall relationship should suffer or at least be modified in a more sophisticated way.

–More depth to the personality types, in terms of things like preferred careers, hobbies, mates, etc.

–More opportunities for social interaction with large groups of chosen sims that don’t involve the hassle of the current type of community lots. In other words, it would be great to get a group of player-character sims together for an outing and be able to control them all, rather than only the sim that organized the outing.

–Definitely being able to have woohooing relationships that don’t involve full-blown love, with all of the complications that entails. Would “Mr. Randy Batchelor” really care if he caught his forgotten conquest from three days ago kissing another sim? The romantic aspects of Sims2 are a lot of fun, but they should be made much more nuanced in a successor.

–Aging should definitely be made gradualized, if possible, with the possiblility of disease and injury increased as aging goes along.

–Ties within immediate families should be strengthened over a lifetime. In other words, a grandparent/grandchild relationship should carry some extra weight and consequence, not to mention relationships with in-laws, etc. Lots of possibilities.

–Making professional relationships more than just a matter of collecting as many friends as possible. It should be about collecting the *right* friends.

Do these things, and the stuff about graphics and fancy objects and such is less important, though making sim behaviors more variable (sitting on the couch etc.) would be nice.

The ability to create sims of varying size. The current limitation of thin, medium & fat is too restricting and unrealistic. For female sims the ability to have varying bust, waist & hip sizes is a must.

(82) Bos says:

I think you should beable to plug a microphone in to the computer and what you say can be translated into simlish.Also I think we should be able to make sims in varies sizes and weights,aswell as that I think the game should come with custom skin and hair so you don’t have to look all over the place for them. :-)

February 13, 2008 at 8:36 am
(83) Shaun says:

They should make the sims more realistic, such as the different personalities, sitting differently and stuff like that. They also need to go into alot more detail with alot of the stuff, for instance there is no puppy stage when you create a dog/cat, it is a full on adult, why can’t you start a new house with a puppy, like a kid..When a mother has a baby she should go away for a day or so, get picked up by an ambulence, have the baby, and then when it is time to be picked up, the father or someone else in the family that can drive pick them up and bring the mother and the baby home, the sims is meant to based on life, then why do we have babies falling out of crystals that float above their heads, also with the driving, the teen sims should be able to go for a driving lesson/tests to drive, because now sims can just automatically drive, they can’t automatically cook good they have to learn so they same should go for driving. Now, what has everyone that i have ever known wanted the sims to do, yes, do their own washing… i know it sounds a little cheezy, but it would be a good thing to have in there, you have to feed them and send them too the toilet, if you dont the will die of starvation or pee themselves, so why not have them to their washing, they can choose to wash there clothes and wear clean ones, not wash then and wear dirty ones or just wear their underwear. The AI, needs to be updated, i know we have all read the interview with the richard guy, they need to be able to know what there doing, as in like walking off in the middle of a conversation when they are hungry.. another one i think we all get sick of is when we are making our perfect house you put a diagonal wall in and you can’t put anything in front of it other than a window or door, they should make it that you can place any object on any corner in your house. They should also bring in built in robes, and clothes hangers, and there should be some type of system that records how many clothes your sim has, and make it look as full, the more clothes the fuller your closet, the less clothes, the emptier. The hairstyles really need to be updated, and changing of clothes you should be able to customise it, such as, i want these shoes with these pants and this shirt and this sweater, and so on… but i think they will get it, what ever they do bring out will wow us once more

I belive that the sims was a full game not to be tested and experimented with and when the made the sims 2 the gave more options to the user to get the idea of what people want the put them into exp pact and stuff packs then turn it into the sims 3 with better graphics and sound and alll of the things sims 2 had but more content like the many mods out there and the will take many ideas and turn them into exp pack

(85) Spewy says:

hey, alot of great idea’s here, i would love to see alot of them in ts3. i live on a farm and have always wanted to create my families property with the fields, barns, stables etc… would love it if maxis was to add animals like horses and farm animals. u could have careers like farmer or breed the animals (horse stud) would be lots of fun! :)

am not even goin to bother about the teen pregnancy thing, there are sooo many different opinions and no one is goin to agree, lets let maxis and the creators do the deciding shall we?!

more hobbies and interests would be good. u could have golf, walking, horse riding, bike riding etc and places to do it in.

(86) Manon says:

I agree with many of the choices, but especialy about stuff like going to school with the kid and whatnot, i think its a realy good idea but if i had a baby at home or something i’d want to stay home so maybe have a choice to go with them or not.
As well i agree with teen pregnancy. I also think you should get more things for babys e.g strollers, play pens ect. And i would like to see them growing more instead of dramaticly switching from tolder to child, child to teen, teen to adult.
I think as well they should be able to go round the neighbourhood, go to a friends house ect. And getting illsesses is a good idea to. But i don’t think the kids should have homework everyday ither. I think sims should be able to get famous and have fans at their door if they are, paparatzi maybe ect. But at the end of it all, all we realy want is to make it as realistic as posible. :)

February 18, 2008 at 5:30 pm
(87) Emma says:

I agree with Manon and Spewy. I Thnink having farms and stuff would be really cool and be able to have horses and stuff. I would also like to see more teen stuff like proms and maybe going to cheerleading practice and stuff becase i am a teenager myself an i would love to see more stuff going on with them.
I think they should be able to have sleepovers like we do not just asking thnem to stay the night then they end up not sleeping or something and most of the time when i try and make two boyz/girls friends with the same sex they end up being gay :P haha ! I think they should have illnesses. More modern furniture e.g bunkbeds, baby strolers, play pens. Also be punished, being grounded and such if they misbihave e.g sneaking out (getting caught by mum and dad), shouting at the parents and stuff. Maybe if the kids are doing badly in school the parents should get called to school. Todlers having more things to do and stuff. Also like manon said
“And i would like to see them growing more instead of dramaticly switching from tolder to child, child to teen, teen to adult.
I think as well they should be able to go round the neighbourhood, go to a friends house ect. And getting illsesses is a good idea to. But i don’t think the kids should have homework everyday ither. I think sims should be able to get famous and have fans at their door if they are, paparatzi maybe ect.”
I think there all REALY good ideas and would like it to be as realistic as posible and getting some ideas of this website and trying to put most of them in because its us that are going to play the game so if it appeals to us then we will buy it witch means more money for the company and such! :) thank you for reading (by the way i am 13 and i play sims 2 alot and my father bought all the expancions and stuff packs and if this isent any good and does’nt have any of the ideas then im not going to play it and you will loose money, not much but its money! :L)

(88) Holi117 says:

if tehre really is going to be a Sims 3, then there is sooo much I’d like to see… I really like teh wants and needs from sims2, as well as the life spans etc.. but what i would like to see is pregnancies lasting longer, the time frame lasting longer (eg being able to get up, shower, pee, eat something then catch a bus) in half hr…not 2hrs… also, I think that designing the sims should be alot better and more free formed like height, weight, chest size, hip sizes etc… Also i want to see some bad things..like sims that can hav miscarriages, sims that chose to smoke cigerettes or do drugs, drink alcohol adn get drunk, teens doing naughties and having accidental pregnacies – MORE REAL LIFE, it would just be soo much more dramatic and bring a whole new list of things that could happen!!!!

February 20, 2008 at 6:10 am
(89) Holi117 says:

also- i wanted to add – that by having these thigns it makes it more real, and if think that it isnt promoting any bad stuff its just some fun- the game could hav consequences like if u get caught smoking under age u get grounded or doin drugs means u could go to jail for a while..the teen pregnancies like some young lovers mite wnat the kid..or run away and elope together, other guys might bail on their girlfriend, or the parents might get amde or something…like i said sooo many options – i wouldnt evenc are if they changed the rating up because to b honest, kids, teens etc all knwo about these issues, and can easily buy them… ALSO LOVING THE WASHING CLOTHES ETC IDEAS

February 21, 2008 at 11:57 pm
(90) rachel says:

i think that the teen pregnancy is a good idea but they probably wont do it because it could send the wrong image that teen pregnancy is good, especially if a younger kid is playing the game. also i would like the needs and wants thing to go away because its annoying that you have to only pick wanting to have a baby or wanting a career because it should be open to letting someone choose to be romantic and have a career or have a baby and have a career or whatever.

February 24, 2008 at 5:04 pm
(91) Evie says:

i agree with ‘me’
living in different time periods would be great, but i think its to complicated.
you should be able to wash clothes and buy washing powder and if you use to much have bubbloes go everywhere. and then hang then around the house or on the washing line to dry, then iron them maybe burn your hand because your listening to music at the same time.Then leave meat folded piles of clothes outside peoples doors. i think that would be great XD
have like drugs would be good and having to take a pregancy test adn steal parents money to pay for them.
well thats what i think…

February 24, 2008 at 5:11 pm
(92) evie says:

ohh also
it woulod be good to have the adults have grey hairs and be worried and get wrinkles and to have a new crib! like a moses basket
and tattoos and other pircings like belly button and completely change proportions like a huge butt and tiny legs and different hieghts.
and to choose maternity clothes like dungarees and dresses and actually seeing different gradual bellys instead of the sudden changes
rant over…

OMG, me and my mom were reading this and we agree with most of the stuff said here. I suppose I would like to see the Create-A-Sim screen to look more like that of SecondLife (which is a chat program with 3D avatars), where you can change each part of their body separately, and also manually make their hair longer or shorter, not just picking a style given to you.

OK, now I’m gonna go on SecondLife!

February 29, 2008 at 11:45 pm
(96) Redrox says:

I hope there will never be a third release of this stupid game. It was a fun idea at first but c’mon how many ‘expansion packs’ that include nothing new will people buy. EA likes to rip off people with crappy releases. It’s not just the case with the sims but look at their sport games e.g NFL, Tiger Woods, all that they change is the box and the year in the title. Then they try to sell that junk as a new game. Screw Electronic Arts! They should concentrate on bringing out something new and not just selling the same game over and over. The Sims got boring after the first expansion pack, and there is nothing left to make this concept interesting again. Bury this one and develop something that we haven’t seen and played yet. It certainly can’t get more boring… *yawn*

March 1, 2008 at 10:14 pm
(97) Molly says:

I wold love to see the Sims 3 go online on x box 360, that would be sooo awesome. I would like to see that the communities are somehow controlled though. I think that is a downfall of past simulation games is having an infinate universe. It is cool to have control over your own house, however, I like the idea of using community lots for mingling. Like perhaps you could have a house party, but the incentive would not be so heavliy influenced by the top 100 houses. I don’t know, just a thought. Maybe you could get a job at the community lots, but not own the community properties etc… Boy there were some fun nights on the Sims online.

(98) Aimz says:

Teen pregency would be both funny and interesting. Fathers should get anry/break up with thie wives when they relaise the babie isnt theirs. I love aliens, i want more stuff with aliens. accidental pergency is kl too. more gentics, better eye colours! Bringing ur pocessions with u when u move. Old women having babaies! does anyone know when its out!

March 4, 2008 at 6:48 pm
(99) Riddick says:

If a house catches fire, it should literally be able to burn to the ground. Not just the furniture and appliances. Why don’t kids wet their beds when they were never potty trained. What would really be neat would be for some of the sims to interact with each other on a professional basis. Like if have a sim in one house who becomes a doctor’plumber/police officer, maybe I should see him making a house call for the sims of my second house if I call for a doctor/plumber/police officer instead of all these NPCs. There should be an option ot have NO NPCs if desired. Let the sims you create and procreate fill the neighborhood jobs.

March 4, 2008 at 6:55 pm
(100) Riddick says:

A sims Hierarchy would be nice. Like if there exists mayor of sim city. That position should beclosed for all other sims in the neighborhood to attain. And the other sims should all recoginze the mayor as the mayor. Or even diversify the government sytem. Make Kings and Queens, nobles, and lords, despots and prime ministers! And ahve all the other sims behave towards them accordingly according to their popularity and title.

March 6, 2008 at 7:18 pm
(101) lexi313 says:

i think teens should be able to get pregnant BUT i think you should have the chioce to make the parents tell their kids not to and they wont and if the parants dont then they can. look ive been playing this game for ever and i think alot of more realistic things should happen.thing should be random and unexpected…. i dont think you should always knw what is going to happen next cuz then it gets boring and then they’ll really lose money

March 6, 2008 at 11:01 pm
(102) Danz says:

They def need to be different heights and for you to be able to manually alter each part of their body… and their hair!! More clothes too, and objects that are different and not the same old, same old. Teen pregnancy would be more life-like as is teen-adult kinda relationships, when one grows up and the other doesn’t. And with driving and going to groceries, and more food options etc. The list could go on. I heart the sims! Lol

March 7, 2008 at 6:37 am
(103) Jorge says:

I think they should keep Real life religion off the game or make up like a SIM RELIGION. I agree with love between teens and adults. They should also add Hospitals. I think the sim should be able to go back to the college neighborhood like just to visit or become a professor in the college

March 7, 2008 at 2:29 pm
(104) Victoria says:

I think that Teen pregnancey is a good idea and also I think having to go to hospital to have kids is a good idea.BUT I don’t think we should have periods as someone suggested.I would like to see more food for the sims to cook and order in(e.g Chinese and indian)and I think there should be more coulered skin and hair(e.g Orange, pink and purple)Religion would be good to and more things to do with ghosts and alien.You should be able to have horses pigs and chickens, you have a big garden.

Anyway those are my ideas thanks for reading. :-)

March 9, 2008 at 3:35 am
(105) WHOWHO says:

I don’t know if anyone said this yet… this is what i want… i hope the community lots are better.there should be sims already on the lot not your sim the first one there. And lots of sims on the lots, sims walking down the street, cars drivning by , families out together, teens out together, you know, and if you go to a resturant it should be pack sometimes depending on what day and time it is, so pack you have to be on a waiting list. More places to go to. Hope they put some malls on there real malls with lots of sims walking, hanging out, and shopping. I know are computers probably can’t hold it but it would be cool. Hope they let you take your toddler and baby, whatever age they are, with you. And theme parks and movies. Hope the empolyees that work at these places do more then stand there hope their cleaning talking or something. Handicap sims would be nice because there are handicap people out there. Multi task sims should be able to do two three four things at once, eat and watch tv at the same time.

March 9, 2008 at 3:42 am
(106) WhoWho says:

Oh yeah… I agree with most of the comments but, teen pregnancy, periods, adults with teens just to name a few. And one more sims should trip up and fall down stairs, and walk into walls drop things, break things, there should be clumsy sims. And sims that take chances and do crazy things

March 9, 2008 at 10:32 am
(107) K8 says:

Woohooing when not in love is a must.Jelousy depends on their aspiration, eg family = major jelousy, romance = not bothered, harder to fall in love.
Teen pregnancy would be good, but it should have consequinces.
For example, they should have to redo the school year, get a bad rep, parents be dissappointed in them, cannot go to college ect.

With the teen woohoo, maybe when you load the game you have to enter your age and there is an option in game options to disable these things, parental control or whatever.

March 10, 2008 at 7:30 am
(108) xshadows-r-nothingx says:

Seriously guys I’m getting kinda sick of the perfect lil’ suburbia life! I think sims should be able to live in apartment blocks in Sim City. That’d be cool. I’m not sure how it’d work but something like the dorms in Sims 2 University nd there could be like rent and stuff. I dunno, just a suggestion really!!!!

March 10, 2008 at 8:07 am
(109) Kat says:

I want my sims to have longer lives. I know I can turn ‘aging off’, but I don’t want aging off cause I want my family to grow, I want longer lives. I Love Love Love the New extension pack (Hobbies), but My Sims do not have time for hobbies, kids, Jobs, skills, reading, diary, town, holidays. I want a say over how long their life goes on for.
I also really want to be able to build the town from scratch, like Sim City-ish! …
I just want more!!

I both agree and disagree with a lot of the comments. I don’t want my sims to get more diseases or have more to clean. I have enough troubles in real life, I don’t want to deal with cancer and other problems when I play a video game. However, I would like more things for the teenagers and kids to do. Also, I would love for them to be able to multitask and have more realistic time frames. Seriously, it doesn’t take an hour to eat a bowl of cereal and or take a shower.

(114) Emilie says:

I think that you should be able to walk around the neighborhood and go to other sims houses and to towns without having to save and quit or call for a cab.
It should be more realistic and push the boundaries a little more, Like they should be able to get disease, and be more crime. There should be a wider selection of jobs too. I think it would be good if you could go to work or school with your sims if you wanted to. And lastly, sims should be more unique, like laying differently, talking differently, and cooking different meals to other sims. Well, the food should look different at least.

March 12, 2008 at 6:44 pm
(115) Lou says:

Just because one married/taken sim flirts slightly with another, partner shouldnt go all ‘zomg i hate you die die die, furious forever’ on them. They should be able to have none serious relationships. And not care about them. Mine are always crying 24/7 after a break up with someone because they hugged another girl or whatever.

March 12, 2008 at 6:56 pm
(116) hmmm says:

They can’t do many things like teen pregnancy , drugs etc because it would be unsuitable for younger children.. unless they put an ange limit on it. Or made it an expansion pack ‘The Sims 2, drugs, woohoo and crime’ :S
Lifespan of sims should be longer too. They die in like a second.
they should grow overtime, not in one day.
you should be able to have more that 8 people in a family.
Teens should be able to live without an adult.
The day should be longer,
because showers take like an hour.
you should be able to run any business. Like a hotel. Which you can’t do :(
The sims are either fat or thin, and all look so alike, their body shape should change because of their diet but not as quick as it does now. Now, you take a thin sim, give her 3 plates of food and she’s instantly faaaaaaaaaat. It should like develop over time.
Christmas and holidays should be on a set time too. I try to put christmas in the holidays, but no one celebrates at the same time. It’d be nice if you could walk around the town near christmastime and see the decorations and santas grotto. And they should have easter too :] and summer break. So yeah, sim life and the sim year longer in general. To maybe 20-30 sim days per season?

March 12, 2008 at 7:00 pm
(117) :] says:

I must admit that its waaay expensive collecting the actual game, then like 10 expansion and stuff packs.
Can’t they work on it for a bit longer and fit it all in one?

March 12, 2008 at 8:39 pm
(118) David says:

I think EA Should integrate the SIMS 3 and Need for Speed together including Google maps. Both games will have better maps using the same engine, tuning, physics, movement, striped kernels, support all platforms including Linux, MAC, Windows xp/Vista/2000. Everything should be realistic not like a doll house or plastic, weather conditions should be default like in racing games along with people that take to you places and all over the world instead of just the town (Fly in a plan to another country or State.) Cop chases in cars and on foot spike strips.

March 13, 2008 at 10:31 pm
(119) May says:

I thought many of the ideas are cool.
But i don’t want the game to get too realistic (like having your period and miscariages and going to work/school) for two reasons 1) it would make the game so complicated and you would have to play for a really long time to get through it 2) its funner because its more fantasy and a place where u can escape the real world.
i really like the idea of being able to walk around the neighborhood (and not like in the sims 2 pets where they say “take for a walk” and your sim disappears) i mean like you get to follow them and speak to people, and this would be much funner if you didnt have to wait so long for the place you want to go to load. it would be cool to be able to go over to your friends house (you don’t have to follow the sim) just like the sim disapears for a bit and when they come back the relationship with the person they visited gets better or worse.

hey i think in the sims 3 that sims should fall down stairs and brake their legs and deffo have chicken pox, thier hair should grow and then have to go to the hairdressers and have any pet they want(monkey), and go to the dentist, and if you are a poor sim you should be to sell blood for money and sweep the streets. when sims go on vacation we should actually see them on the plane and see them get scared and travel sick. i think that sims’ clothes should get dirty and need washed and those charity money collectors should come to your house. i also think that sims jobs should be recognised, like if they are a singer and mayor or something. you should totally be able to go to work and school with your sims and have the kids be bullies, nerds or populars!!

March 16, 2008 at 8:38 am
(122) holly says:

also sims should be in car crashes and go to hospital! and they should be able to go on big brother and american idol and stuff! and sloppy sims should be sloppy and eat with thier hands and stuff!

ok. so where do i start???

i LUV the iea f a sims 3 – but what if i get tred woth my old agmes? all that wasted money?! it would be good if the sims 3 was like an expansion, an ll the new graphics and game pkay and tuff get loaded onto thes sims 2 . I agree that teens chould have babies- it would be more realistic, but thers a certain levl of relism that shoul be allowed. You dont want to encourage paedophiles or murderes by putting teen/adult relationships, or murders on a game that is sold internationally, and that is so pupular. games o influenc poeple. id lke more detailed hair colours and eyes and skin tones. and more then 8 pople in a household. an you should be able to have up to to quadruplets

loveage xx

March 16, 2008 at 5:25 pm
(124) Max says:

okay, main improvements basically would be much better graphics etc

Main things i didnt like in the first still include the little things like have two people walk past each other even though it is only one spot. Things like that
Alos it is a really expensive thing with all of the expansions and the fact that when u vuy the first origional pack it sucks balls and it only become good after about the first 3 expansion packs come out

Also i would like the idea of free roam and and actually ages and some sort of starnge incest as a glitch because that would be bare funny

Oh and on the note of free roam i think there hould just be no more neighbourhoods but like one big map. Admittedly this would need like an 8800 at least but it would be worth it!!!

March 16, 2008 at 6:01 pm
(125) Jake says:

If Maxis were to include religion in The Sims 3, there would be several hurdles they would have to jump over. First off, Sims speak and write in their own language, “Simlish,” despite there being a language barrier, we can still understand to some degree as to what they are trying to communicate, through their reactions and behavior. If there was religion in The Sims 3, it would not be any of the world religions we have in society at large. Therefore the comment about watching “a kid sim look at a bible picture book of Joseph and his colorful coat” would be practical, unless The Sims 3 was exclusively Christian. So for religion to be included, it would have to be a religion created originally by Maxis, in other words, something made up. Secondly, for this to operate in the game correctly, Maxis would have to import a theological model for the religion, and despite the obvious differences, at the core of the world religions, the same principles of love, honor, etc, all are universal. therefore distinguishing religions would be a basis of prophet/leader/etc, and such figures are missing in any manifestation of a Sims title. Thirdly, if there is Religion, there will be non Religion, if Maxis includes religion, then they must also include the alternatives, atheism, agnosticism, and other forms of philosophical thought, such as the works of Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Kafka, etc. In addition to that, then forms of government would have to be included, because early forms of rule were Theocratic.

Religion will most likely not be included in the Sims, mostly because religion itself and the history therein are human accomplishments (being that religious texts are not written by the Deity itself) and the sims aren’t human, they appear human, but they have not the history of the human race.

Another point of view to this, would be the user/player is God, and being God, having direct influence and control of your creations (Sims) needs not worship, because free will can be turned off in the settings.


March 16, 2008 at 8:58 pm
(126) The Sims 3 Person says:

I think that in the sims 3 it should have a pets expansion pack like in the sims 2. nd instead of, like in the sims 2, you should be able to have different sized dogs. Not just very big or very small. And the puppies should not just go from tiny to big huge dogs in a second. And when the puppies are first born they should be tiny and get gradualy bigger as time goes on. Also you should be able to make better houses. You should be able to make better types of roofs, like on real houses. There should be more fireplaces too. And better garages and eally cool cars. Like the sims 3 could advertise for car makes like cool ones like ferrari’s, porches, lambourgini’s and you should be able to buy limo’s too! Like hommer limo’s. They’re savage! More types of electric equipment and more stuff for the children too. And they should have back packs aswell. And the age should gradually change and they should have actual birthdays like 1 year old, 2 year old 3 year old etc. That would be cool. Better weather too. And, oh yeah, the like young children should go to playschool from like 10:30 to 12:00 like 3 days a week like in real life. The children should go to primary school and you could see there calss like Jr. Infants, Snr. Infants, 1st class to 6th class then go on th Secondary School in 1st year to 6th year. And have a Transition Year (TYO). And they should be able to have WAY more animals. Like if you didn’t want to have any you don’t. But you could have like a farm and be a farmer or it should so have horses and you should be able to care for it and ride it. That would be awesome! You should be able to go to other peoples houses. The children should be able to run around and then fall and graze their knees/arms or break a bone. And they should have bikes and scoters and be able to fall off them. And the house floors/walls/furniture should get dirty and dusty and you would have to clean then. Like have a brush/hoover to clean and a duster! And the clothes could get dirty and they could have washers and driers and clothesline polls to clean them. They could get ripped and could be sown back or thrown out. They could get acne abd braces and they could actually need glasses and they could have contact lenses. They could brush their teeth and hair. There hair could grow long and they could have to get it cut. Its annoying the way they have really short hair then have really long hair the next second! Its silly. Their personalety could be better aswell. And there should be bunk beds too! That should be so cool! The loading time should be improved, I mean it takes ages to get anywhere! Well I think thats all now I hope the sims 3 is going to be great!! Bye!

March 17, 2008 at 6:01 pm
(127) Jamie says:

I would like it when one sim goes into the next age group that they give an option to make other sims that are in the same age group and who are friends or family members (the ones outside of the household) to age as well so they can be kept on the same timeline better and not get the kids outgrowing the parents. So basicly a better way of aging and keeping all the approiate age.

March 18, 2008 at 4:32 am
(128) Andrea says:

i think the teen should be able to have baby and i think the adult should ground there kids and put them on time out.and i think they should able to get drunk and i think the they should have per teens and kindergradners and per schoolers and i think you shouldn’t have to go to collaga to be a yung adult and i think there mood should be so messed up so quick and i think the family should act like fiamlys and i think they should speak english and should be able have child sporke and i think the kids should play sports and do there home work when we want them to and i think the kid should have better toy and i think teen should be able to do the soljer boy and dance like Chris Brown and i think the per teens girls should grow boobs and boys voice get deeper and think there should teen should be able to act more real like thow party they should be able to have as may kids as they want and i think they should be able to get sick colds and chick pox and stuff like that and i think that all of the sims2 expansion pack should be on the game all ready and kindergarnders should be able to us the phone swim and i think teen should get in touble when to copes bring them home or when then sneak out or run away

March 18, 2008 at 7:55 am
(129) jennie says:

i think you should be able to do more things with you toddler and have more stuff to buy for you toddler. like a pram and take them on little walks. and also toddlers energy goes down very quickly meaning parents are up and down to the cot, toddlers should be able to stay awake for longer. and they should be able to come on holidays and be able to go to nurserys!!! i love the toddlers in the sims 2 :D

March 19, 2008 at 2:27 pm
(130) chas says:

I think that it should be on both ps3 and xbox 360, and i think that it should be multiplayer. More shops and more cars and holiday places, more foods and breeds of pets. Loads more careers too!

I would like it so in sims3 the time went slower by this i mean the display clock so a sim can fit more in In a day in real life a day does not go as fast as it does in sims2

March 20, 2008 at 12:21 pm
(132) Aimee says:

Don’t be stupid it would be a disaster if they allowed teen pregnancy on the sims as the teens are only 13 or 14! They are not allowed to promote that by law! I do agree they could have an expansion pack where the adults can do crime, drugs and porn for 18+.

March 21, 2008 at 11:31 am
(133) BexxiBabii says:

I think that the children can have there “Childhood first kiss” Also, there should be Celbrities so your sims can ask for there autograph and there is the paparazzi aswell. Teen pregnancy should happen and there could be meteors…
Thankz a million for reading! Hope i gave sum ideas

(134) BexiiBabii says:

I hope you guys have read my other comment and i really want a church, it wuld be so cool! i would also like hospitals and maybe toddlers can have there first pair of shoes or first lock of hair. I have read alot of ideas from you all and they were all great! i like the idea of the pads but maybe the periods only happed 2 times for teens so it cant annoy you. i love sims 2 freetime so i do hope there is something like that in the sims 3. you could even stay round your relatives or something. And go on boat trips to go on a vacation. Or even go on a world trip after u leave colle/uni on sims 3!
Thankz a million for reading! i really like leaving comments and reading other peoples ideas so plz keep it up!
P.s i cant wait till sims 3 comes out in 2009

March 25, 2008 at 6:32 pm
(135) Michele says:

Hey, yeah I’m really exited for the Sims 3 . I looked at the website, and trust me, its AMAZING. There isn’t much but let me tell you a secret. If you own the sims 2 Free time(Expansion Pack) You will notice that everytime you enter a new lot for the first time, a man will come and leave a present outside your door. Open it (don’t be scared)and you’ll get a computer added to your inventory. Place it somewhere in the house, ideally a desk, the select it, then click on Play… the Sims 3! When they play, look closely at their comp. screen and you will see real Sims 3 footage!

Well back to the point, for those of you whose said that they wish to visit neighbors and such, well from what i heard you can! you can even pick up groceries on the way back from school or work. Cool, eh?

I don’t know everything, but i would love to see children, teens and even adults and stuff grow older over time, not just grow up in a day. I think it would be really cool if you could gradually see adults get older, like white hair and stuff, of toddlers being able to reach stuff and getting taller. Also, more texture of the “grass”, and more building opportunities.

Anyway, i have said too much now, i shall leave space for all your views!

March 27, 2008 at 2:38 am
(136) Dash says:

I dont know if anyones said this but it would be cool to have:
1.More ages like newborn, infant(8months), toddler(1.5yr), pre-schooler(1.5yr to 5), young child(5 to 7), child(7-9), pre-teen(10-12), teen(13-16), older teen(17-19), young adult(20-30), adult(30-40), middle-aged(40-50), old adult(50-65) and finnaly grandma/pa(65+). But you shouldnt have a birthday for each transition only for the maxis 1s.
2.There should be more body types and skin colours. More variety in everything.
3.There should be in-depth personalitys.
4.You should be able to go visit your mates.etc
5.There should be a option to go to work /school with your sim or just automatic.
6.I think there should be teen pregnancies.
7.Also you could live in a trailer/flat/town house/shack.etc)

And thats all.

March 27, 2008 at 3:33 pm
(137) Michele says:

Sorry, me again forgot to include that small things should be included like, cars actually going past house/ community lot, and like if you live infront of a lot or house you should actually see sims in there or outside, because right now it feels… well isolated! Also, i agree with the whole teenage pregnancy thing it would make it more real. Also, sometimes the house is really quiet, so they should actually interact when in the same room instead of acting as if no one’s actually there. OK I’m done now =].

March 27, 2008 at 4:19 pm
(138) Michele says:

OOO and they should have like, boat houses and shacks and and caravans, like in the sims 2 for Xbox and Playstation and stuff theres this really cool boat house and a mansion in a globe underwater… If they can do it for consoles, why not introduce them for PC?

Yeah, they should have their own unique personalities, like greedy, mean, dirty , flirtatious and stuff, like a greedy sim would want to eat a lot, and a mean sims should be horrible to everyone instead of going round having the sme convo as, say, a friendly sim. Also when the use interactions like “Hit on” or “make out” or “Tickle”, they do it EXACTLY THE SAME as all other sims. So yh, they should be more unique both physicly and mentally.

Sorry, im getting really exited now!

March 28, 2008 at 7:43 pm
(139) me says:

hi its me agin.i like all of ur idears.the bit about the teen and baby thing jst keep it down a bit for the kids that play sims like me but im a bit mature and the sims are my life and i love them so i hope u all get wat im saying!

March 28, 2008 at 8:02 pm
(140) me says:

i think when sims die death should not come i think that sims should have to call the police and they investorgate and somtimes the sim could be murded and they find out that a sim did it and if it was realy bad the sim can get a death centense and sims can commit souised!

will sims 3 have SECUROM – I really hope NOT

April 2, 2008 at 7:10 pm
(142) Eneidalys Blanco says:

I read lots of the comments but there is just too much hahaha…neways i agree with most of it definatly being able to drive our own cars and more options for teens and young adults like having a relationship of love with older men or women and stuff. i feel the women should be more curvy and have bigger boobs and butt. the men should have bigger arms and chest. about the whole new career as a model actor to be famous i think it is a great idea. Also you should include magic and ALOT OF IT. Magic is the solution to not cheating in a game with codes and stuff. I still play the sims 1 becuase of it. we should have alter and potions and spells and a book of spells and other things better then making magic in the sims 1. How ever we should work really hard to get to be witches and actors in the game. we dont want to defeat the purpose of the entire game which is to live a real life gig.

April 3, 2008 at 7:20 pm
(143) me says:

im not sure about the magic thing what about a thing called hoklopism its a flower that you go up to and pick one when its ready to be picked while yor holding it you say a magic word and whatever you said it would happen and this stuff shoots out of the flower i just thought of that idear thenand when i was thinking i thought that the sims is a game its not real life

April 11, 2008 at 1:22 pm
(144) Mi says:

yh i think magic is a good idea. But the sims 2 had loads of magic and weird stuff likew the cow plant and genie lamp and vampires, warewolves, plantsims, zombies and stuff. Also more mysteries lyk Bella Goth and strangetown (part from not bella goth i think its getting a bit old now) but instead have her future family or something.yh and more viriety of personalities.

April 14, 2008 at 6:02 pm
(145) ticoh99 says:

I would like to see their wants pertain to each stage of life instead of continuously, the sims doing things more autonomously ie: homework, calling friends & supplying their own wants, no more work uniforms, let them pick out their own clothes for work, putting a coat on overtop their daily clothes, making friends more instantaneously, one-night stands without having to fall in love (pregnant teen issues maybe as an adults-only patch), social skills inherited/learned, sims deciding their own life aspirations so we have no choice in what they pick, better seasonal graphics (wind blowing trees, rain through the windows etc), not having to study topics unrealistically that really don’t pertain to jobs instead their career choices determined by their schooling, not having to make them do their homework or pay their bills, more automatically if they choose or not. I believe the above would be a bit closer to reality and not make it so much of a game which is why more people play this than other games. The seamless neighborhood is the best idea so far because the loading screens (depending on how many custom objects installed) is hideously slow and tiring.

May 1, 2008 at 2:25 pm
(146) Sweet T says:

I just hope that the game will beable to play on my computer cause i really dont wont to have to buy a new one.
I also hope that the game comes will at least some of the expansion packs that came with the sims 2. for example (nightlife cars, college life, seasons, business,) because i really don’t wont to be buying something i have already piad for!
I really do hope that the game in all is better than sims 2 because if it is not then i really dont want to take my take trying ti save money to buy the game. I LOVE THE SIMS, but somethings will just be crazy if its not too different than the sims 1 or 2! I mean i totally agree on the whole thing about teenage pregnacy because yes that is REAL life, and it will be cool to have some one quit school because of a child or something! And yesy we should be able to put the couches anywhere we want, and the lighting in the windows should also be available, because hey it was in the sims 1!
One other prob. i might havce with the game is that will i beable to see the REAL color of my walls or do i have to see a flash RED until i buy a graphic card!


May 2, 2008 at 9:38 pm
(147) me says:

hello my friends again i wish there was a package for the sims 3 where you could design your own furniture you could pick any colour you mix colours and more, there should be way more furniture and there should be exstending tables and couches could turn into beds oh i was ganna say this ages ago somtimes plane can crash and destroy half of the nabourhood and unexpected trageties and sims die from it. Also it would be good if familys dont agree then in the end one wins say like a sim family gets a new home then the kids fight over the bedrooms!

June 23, 2008 at 1:27 pm

I think you should have the choice of living in the city, country, ect. that’d be cool!

i think you should be able to have braces, and choose your maternity clothes

(150) R says:

The teen pregnancy thing is an interesting one, especially considering I myself was a teen mom =P. I have to agree w/ post #37 when she said, “you can have sex before marriage, have an affair, create homosexual relationships, become a prof criminal, fight, and have babies out of wedlock “. If you can be gay, get knocked up before you’re married, cheat, ect… why not get pregnant at 16? I don’t see how that’s any worse than allowing your Sims to sleep with 4 different “lovers” or having two women marry! So all of you who think it’s soo wrong… think about how “M” rated it already should be! I would really just like to see basic things take LESS time, for instance – learning to cook can take HOURS in the end. Really, who spends hours learning a recipe? C’mon I just want some cheesecake!!! Ditto w/ showering, going potty, and doing HOMEWORK! My son has never in his life spent that much time doing homework, holy cow! It just takes toooo long!! I would like to have control of the nanny when she comes over because as is she just gets in the way more than helping! I’d like to be able to customize the neighborhoods more – design my own streets. I agree that they should be more realistic – short sims, tall sims, and sims that are really fat lol. I know they have a weight feature but it’s not “fat”. I know it’s a tall order but being able to go visit people would ROCK! Honestly I’d prefer if they didn’t get sick (it’s a pain in the rear!) but it would be neat if they had to go to the hospital to “deliver” their babies! Oh the list could go on… I can’t wait to see what they come up with though!!!

July 17, 2008 at 3:40 pm
(151) Jojo says:

Well i think that there should be an EP that comes with celebrities.
And you sould also beable to own a talk show and rich sims can own yachts and you can customize your lot size.
Celebrities can also get body guards for screeming fans when making a public appearence(if you want them to have body guards).
E.g of celebrities models,actors or actresses,singers and extremely successful business tycoons.
If you own a clothing store and you buy posters of celebrities(and the money goes straight to the celebrities) most customers would want to buy the outfit that the celebrity is wearing on the poster.

July 18, 2008 at 4:32 pm
(152) amanda l says:

im just going to list
-teen woohoo and pregnancy
-any 2 sims can woohoo with any other sim, regardless of age
-more normal clothing, not the tight-fitting clothes in sims2
-be able to clean more things. like vacuuming and washing clothes/dishes by hand
-be able to open/close windows and curtains
-more body type selections
-have more normal, real looking furniture
-more meals to make
-be able to make sims murder another sim if their relationship is rly bad

July 22, 2008 at 11:52 am
(153) sara18 says:

hey, we need places where sims can go out on dates, such as movie theaters, and you should actually be able to go with them. Have guys come up to the girls and ask her out. the sims should also be able to get cancer, lose their hair, get lukemia, have a heart attack, and maybe even get into car accidents. we should be able to actually drive, and teen sims should have to take drivers ed before they can start driving. we should actually get to go out with our teen sims when they sneek out, and try to get them back in when they arrive back at their house. Tenns should also be able to get pregnant.

July 23, 2008 at 12:58 am
(154) jdhakjdhkasj says:

i think that sims3 has like laundry baskets and washing machines and dryers. it isn’t so realistic if your sims wear the same thing for their whole life and not get it dirty. they should have doctors appointments and get vaccines agains diseases, flu, chicken pox etc. they should have dentists appointments and have sims get braces, retainers, dentures, etc. and they should have a supermarket where you can buy food. but intead of going to one freezer to pick up ALL your groceries, you should have to shop around and find what you want. and meals should be more “involved.” like instead of mixing everything in that blue bowl, they should have to follow somehwat of a recipe so its more realistic. and there should be cabnits and cubborts and drawers in the kitchen where silverware, plates, cups, etc are stored and you should have to empty the dishwasher then put it all away. and sims should have the options to eat with a napkin depedning how sloppy your sims are. and when they go to the bathroom, lets face it, nobody sits on the toilet as strait as a sim. they should slouch and just act normal. there should be hospitals. and your sims should be able to get sick, break their arms, or just be injured. and there should be more involvment with the police officers. for people who have cars, they should be able to get a ticket for speeding and go to court for doing somthing bad. and if its bad enough have them got to jail and play your sim in a jail habitat. and garages shoudl eb able to be attached to a house that is on foundation! the same with dry wall. and sims should be able to be able to “redo” their houses. like repainting if the paint gets old, retiling the floors, etc. there should be more choices for cars like chevy, dodge, impala, monte carlo ect.

July 23, 2008 at 3:07 pm
(155) woohoowoohoo says:

I think a lot of stuff:
*Teens should get pregnant
*You should be able to date at different ages (like teen with elder)
*You should have pets
*You should be able to have as many people as you want in a house
*Have step parents and stuff like that
*Age by years not stages
*Actual weddings, birthdays, and hospital births
*Go with them to school/work
*Stay at friend’s house
*Woohoo with anyone (and I mean anyone)
*Spank kids
*Get grounded
*Have real injuries
*Be able to undo stuff (like deaths and births)
*Put kids up for adoption
*Give kids to friends
*Have abortion (for the bad sims)
*Go to jail/juvy
*Make an alien
*Sizes from annorexic to obese, midget to giant

July 24, 2008 at 7:31 am
(156) ana says:

wait a minute people, lets talk about yourfamilies and neighbourhoods.
1. where not going to play the game till where 50 or something, so i think the sims should age at stages. not each YEAR!!!
2: More members in the famalies instead of just 4.
3. uni, primary/elementry school, (i’m australian),cafe’s and much much more!
4.drive your car. (oh, i found out that you can probaly create your own car in the sims 3).
5. babies,toddlers,kids,young teenagers (14-15?),adult teens, adults, middle age, old.
6.cats, dogs, more…
6.oh, and choosing where you want to live or build your own house.
7. (question): is there upstairs house? can you build them your own?
please comment back, tell me what you think!

July 24, 2008 at 10:29 pm
(157) yaoilover says:

i think teens should get preggy and babys can get sick and die.more challenge.lots more clothes and assessories,including tatoos,naked parts,contacts,more eye colors,mystical clothing,chibis,fantasy pets,and stuff like that.plus my sims love spying on his boyfriend,so make with the naked plz.

July 25, 2008 at 8:07 pm
(158) deedee says:

i think that they should act and look more realistic and that they can just walk across the street and not worry about having to load…they should actually be able to go to school and work with the sims and they should have the babies at the hospital and they should be able to choose the gender of the babys and they should have more options,clothes,hairstyles.the teens should be able to do things like teens today also

July 25, 2008 at 8:09 pm
(159) deedee says:

oooo yea i also think u should be able to take babies and toddlers with u places in the car and dthey should have carseats

ther is already a cheat code 4 the sims 2 nighlife 4 teenaage pregnancy i cant wait 2 get the expansion u get tons of cool new hair styles like on u tube they have musiic videos from te sims 2 all done w/ nightlife!!!!!!!!!

July 28, 2008 at 5:28 pm
(161) Soxphan says:

I talked to my friends about everything we would want in the sims 3. We made a list, and this is what we came up with: more styles and colors of hair/more pets like horses and reptiles/more instruments to learn to play like guitars, drums etc./ more jobs like actors, singers, member of band/ more cars.

July 29, 2008 at 10:16 am
(162) Soxphan says:

i love playing the tycoon games. i think it would be cool if sims could have amusement parks that you could go to and zoos and stuff. cause in real life, families go to places like that all the time.

July 29, 2008 at 4:52 pm
(163) Paisley says:

Being able to be famous, be an actor, singer, model, band member and actually have the option of going to the sims work with them to do their job and have more options there, same as school.
Teenagers should be able to get pregnant because thats real life. I think they should be able to smoke. Live in boats that are family homes, live in a rock star bus, More girl hair styles (long styles) Different color’s and accessories. Pick your own shoes. And this is something really different, but to choose how short and tall you want to be. More things for Teenagers with their friends and a more social bond.

July 29, 2008 at 4:55 pm
(164) Paisley says:

One more thing.
Have teenagers becoming pregnant at random. To show a good example for younger players don’t give them the option for the teenager to become pregnant. If they choose to risk their teen Sim to have sex then they get what what get out of it. =)

July 31, 2008 at 8:28 pm
(165) Amy says:

Do you people know ANYTHING about the SIMS 2???!!! They do have hair salons and they do have guitars!!! Listen to me people!!! U NEED TO COLLECT THE EXPANSIONS!!!! I have almost all of them. Also I think there should be washers and dryers. and teen pregnancy

August 5, 2008 at 12:24 pm
(166) Sez says:

All of the ideas mentioned are great and when customising your sim’s eyes you should be able to have different coloured eyes cos I do and when making myself I either have no have all blue or all brown eyes…not fair lol. Also instead of just blonde or brown hair you should be able to have blondy-brown hair that would be awesome. Also you should be able to build houses into the ground and be able to add more features to houses like architecture etc.

August 7, 2008 at 2:29 pm
(167) sb says:

they should have emperor xizzle jr. and you can be a alien instead of human

I think that thesims3 is going to be greet and I think that teen sims should have a baby.I thank this time you should tell what the sim is saying.And I thank it would be greet if you can go on dates and you make them work you dont just have to sit there till thay come home and I thank you should move them around instade of that round thing.I hope you do this couse it would be greet

September 1, 2008 at 1:50 pm
(169) Taylor says:

I think that instead of the age line saying
“5 days til’ adult” it should say the age number like,12,14,26. That would be better.
I agree with everyone. I also think that you should be able to zoom in a little closer, and they should be able to have fights like, if the girl caught her boyfriend cheating on her than they should be able to interact more with it.That stuff would be fun.And I want more options than if you want them to hug, so instead of just: leap into arms,friendly,romantic ect. Their rooms should get dirty with clothes,food and the teens should be able to have sleepovers with like 3 ppl and they can eat popcorn and watch movies and do nails,make-up, dress up wacky.lol That would be really fun.

September 1, 2008 at 2:12 pm
(170) Taylor says:

I think you should be able to straighten or curl their hair and then make them pin it up. I also would like their hair to move!!!!
Like if they’re outside and the wind is blowing then their hair should blow around cuz no one’s hair is stiff like that unless you use like 2 million hairspray bottles but it would be nice.=]lol

September 2, 2008 at 11:54 am

It is possible to have teens woohoo and get pregnant, just download a hack.
And it is possible for teens to date adults and elders, ModTheSims2 has a VERY good hack for more realistic dating.

September 5, 2008 at 11:51 pm
(172) Veronica :D says:

I dont really know if someone has already put this ( I really dont have the time to go through everything) but I hope that they put this in the sims 3. I want the sims to be able to go to the doctor and get illnesses. Like a broken leg, a fever, tummyaches, flus, ect. Also it would be really nice if the pregnet sims could be pregnet longer. Like maybey better stages, not just three days of being pregnet and out pops a baby. I want them to be able to go to the docter and find out if its a boy or a girl so that I can get started on the nursery.

September 6, 2008 at 9:50 am
(173) Nisha says:

I think it would be nice if it showed some albino people as well as all types of differnt people and problems they have at jobs with the co workers, bosses etc. Show more tv stations like we have lifetime, sci-fi etc. have to go to school to get a certain job not just pick a job and you get it. cell phones they should have, lock the front and back doors with keys. Have stepfaters and stepmothers and they know that it is not their biological child. Different bodies with women having hips, different breast sizes, and for the men same with them also if they want to get plastic surgery done on a certain body part. Allergies, allergic reactions to medicines. They should be able to get headaches, have diahrrea etc and take medicine for it over the counter as well as see a doctor. Surgeries if they were in a car accident and have to have a peice of metal taken out and family can go and see them. Family should be able to come in from out of town as well as go out of town to see family. Funerals real funerals not just they just cry where the person died at and just keep crying after that person is gone. Couseling for marriages that are on the rocks. I also think the games should be a little cheaper, like if it was a new music cd it is price at 9.99 for the first week then it go to full price after that. I think for the first week it should be 20.00 dollars then go to 30.00 dollars after a week. Because in real life the economy is not that good and we are all trying to keep up with what you all are doing to keep us entertained and I thank you for that.

so alot of people are talking about the teens getting pregnat…it makes sense cause they do but what they should do is have the parents get mad at the teen when the get prggo =]

(175) loida says:

i would like if a teenage sims to continue their romance with their lovers when their lovers has grown into an adult also i would also like that a sim can commit murder without using an expansion, maybe also teenage sim can get married to an adult sim when he gets her pregnant and also i would like if when creating the game teenage sims can live in their own place doing things that adult can do without having to only live with themself when their parent died also elders should stop been treated on the same level as teenage sims.

September 15, 2008 at 1:55 pm
(176) loida says:

for the anonymouse person you should be quiet teenage sims should be able to get pregnant and if you dont agree with it that is your concern you are been selfish with it if oerson want to include it in the game it is up to our response and the game people not yours

September 15, 2008 at 2:40 pm
(177) loida says:

sims i agree should be able to grow their hair their body should be more realistic also be able to have more realistic fights like jumping, punching, kick to the stomach etc alsosims should be able to speak english, spanish and other language so the the players should be able to understand instead of sims language, babies should wear clothes get tuck in with comforters kids should stop getting taken away when their temparature drop when their are playing balloon fight or their temparature increase when they are jumping on the bed, families should help kids with their homework without us telling them to also kids should do homework without us telling them to also sims should grow up depending of their age and sims should tell us their age and they will not stay the same size when they 16, 17, 18, 19, and sims should age depending on their age, girls should have bigger breast, butt, hips, tights, sexy leg and the guys should have big muscular arms,tights, tight butt, rock hard abs etc, sims should have birthday parties every time they age like for example when a sim turns 2 then 3, 4, 5 etc each sim year. sims should be able to see their periods,use condoms get hiv protect themself, not raising kids that are not theirs. sims can go to college and their parents can visit them and the other way around. sims that get kicked out of college should not authormaticaly turn into an adult but to remain the same and starts over. sims should be able to smoke weed, use the needle, get a hiv or other stds tested, sims should be able to live longer, get murderes, car acidents, hit and run, house get egged by neighboors or get toilet papers over their house, windows get smash by boyfriends or girlfriend when caught cheating when a spouse get kicked out of the house the authormatically find a place to live and also when moving out the sims should be able to find a house without our help and perhaps get more money when finding a place, be more realistic like humans.kids can have crushes and kiss and todlers can climb stairs and not cry when they cannot follow their family members.this and more are my game fantasies.

emma darling you to be quiet about the idea of teen sims getting pregnant and date who they want to, i for one believe that it will be more educational for teenagers to get a idea of how hard it is to be a parent so i vote for this teenage sims should be able to date who ever it is just a game and it happens in real life if you do not agree that is your idea then be you and we can be more creative teenagers get pregnant everywhere in the world and it is sometimes by chose or by rape, marriage, acident, and it is just a game and a way to make it more real.

Apparently I am an older player of the Sims 2. I love the game overall. My main problem with it though is the aging process. I think it is great that our little simmies age. But I think in The Sims 3 they should make it more realistic. Not just going from Baby to Toddler, Toddler to Child, Child to Teen, etc. It would be cool actually see them age over time. Like seeing little Tommy Sim there go from a short little guy to getting a bit taller as time goes on. Or see an adult get wrinkles and gray hair as they head towards being an Elder. And also, why couldn’t they live longer? I am always a little sad when my simmies die. Just to make it more realistic. I also would love more variety in the clothing, hairstyles, and housing choices. Oh, and a more realistic birth sequence would be awesome!! I have seen the behind the scenes video that has been released. From what I saw, it looks like The Sims 3 is going to be a very cool game.
Happy Simming!!

(184) Richelle says:

I thought of a couple more things I would like to see in The Sims 3. I would love to see the unpredictability factor amped up big time. Like have the sims make choices but not know the outcome necessarily. The Sims 2 tends to get repetive. I am not sure about more health problems or diseases being added. But I suppose that is one way to get some variety. I wouldn’t want it to be too serious because then it would be a little too realistic. After all, don’t we love to play the Sims to escape from the real world? It would also be fun if they like tripped over toys, books, dishes, etc. that are left out. Not to hurt themselves, but I think it is funny when they get frustrated a little. And perhaps have more unpredictible behaviors in general.
I also think it would be great if we could make custom content right there in the game instead of having to download The Sims Bodyshop. And, make a custom content generator with more versatility.
I really like the idea of adding a religion aspect to the game. Maybe even have a career option of becoming a religious leader. I also think the having a church wedding idea is a good one. Oh and let them have more clothing options so we don’t have to spend those precious simleons on clothes!! Let them change their clothes every day. Maybe even have them wash clothes. I am sure some of this has already been said but I think these are some good ideas for The Sims 3.
Happy Simming!!

Hello my fellow Simmers.

I have been reading through these comments and have noticed that Teen pregnancy is wanted by many, but others dislike the thought. I personally like the mod for it, I just recently downloaded it. It would be much easier if the Sims 3 included it, but I will not be disappointed if it doesn’t show up.

I also think it would be neat to have more realistic jobs, body types and illnesses. I’ve always wanted to go to my Sim’s jobs. Like, if they work as a… doctor for example. Have them do doctor-like behaviors. Illnesses would be interesting, and I think it would provide the need for a hospital. As for Body types, nobody is the same in real life. It would just be so more conveinent if this were part of the sims 3.

Other things I would liek to see
-online schooling or homeschooling
-more fashions(downloading CC jsut gets so boring)
-religion( Even if it is a made up, sim religion. I understand that bringing actual religion MAY cause conflict.)
-not placing things DIRECTLY on a grid.
-I would like to see Apartment life come back in the sims 3, or something with apartments. I enjoy this expansion pack.
-I would also like to see more social options. As previously stated by other people, things do get repetative.

My list could go on froever, but here are just a few. Happy simming!

(186) Rachel says:

I think that like many others, it should be more realistic. Here are my thoughts-

-Teen pregnancy.
-Being able to go to work or school with your sims.
-Better clothes, hairstyles, and makeup.
-More interaction options.
-Being able to drive to other lots.
-A movie theater and hospitel

You know how with the sims 2 you have a bunch of expansion packs that give us new features? I think that everything should be in the sims 3. Like you can go to college without having to by an expansion pack to do it you know?

i think that the sims can go to church if they want to and also teens getting pregnant just like real life stuff.

(190) harti says:

I totally agree that the moms should have to drive to the hospital and lie down and have their baby. It is so unrealistic for the mom to stand up at her house. I also think that more than 8 people should be allowed to live in one household. People have more than just 6 kids sometimes. There should also be weather like rain and snow and stuff. Teen pregnancy should also be available. I mean come on- we are ni the 21 century..

(191) Natalie says:

what about..different voices and movement for everyone? problems such as addictions?
cars? bicycles? motorcicles? what about a doctor visiting at home? Or Sims lying in bed until the fever goes away..? Broken legs or hands would be a good idea!! Following Sims at work or school! Cutting the grass and other house jobs like that..? Opening the windows, planting trees…getting dressed and not just turn around!!!!!there are million things that can be improved!!! Natlaie

October 9, 2008 at 8:41 pm
(192) Tanya says:

The Sims should be able to speak different languages. I like the fact that they can be all shapes and sizes. They should also be allowed to be different heights. They should be able to have extended family relationships.

(193) sims 3 says:

I have one more thing to add with my comment, when your sim drives somewhere, sim players should be able to drive with the arrow keys. That would be really cool!!! Mostly I would just like the sims to be able to do more realistic things. (if you do this then don’t make the driving directions like, if you press the right key it turns left like some games do. Also you should see right in front of the steering wheel, not birds view. one more thing, when the sim drives, then you should be able to drive into store parking lots or park on the street and honk at other cars. Just like in real life !!! THANX!!! :)

(194) xxxAlex_Babiexxx says:

Ok guys hope you have a minute……or 10 cause this is goin to be LONG!! lol ok….

Now i agree that teen pregnancy IS a teen issue and that teens should be aware of it now…(cc) im not tryin to say that we should ENCOURAGE teen prganancy but it SHOULD be added to the game and still not change the rating!!
I agree that there shouldnt JUST be like 5 or 6 stages in life like we should be able to know EXACTLY what there age is and the kids should get taller and get larger or smaller (weight wise) and they should grow like gradually like we do in real life and the same for the teens they should get larger breasts and more curves and stuff like that…..and Adults they should age slowly as well like SLOWLY getting wrinkles and grey hairs and notice “drooping” OH and you should be able to tell EXACTLY what age they are like this: Babies(1-3) Toddlers(4-5) children(6-9) Pre-teens(10-12) Teens(13-16) Young adults(17-18) Adults(18-29) Middle aged(30-40)Nearly senior citizens(41-59) Senior Citizen(60 and up)

Now about the trees and grass and what not…..the grass SHOULD grow and you be able to mow the lawn and the trees should grow taller and get older and eventually fall or die or somethin like that and i agree about that whole stains on couches and tables and cobwebs and paint peeling and everything because in real life thats what the house eventually becomes.
It would be REALLY awesome if your sims could call the movers when you moved in or out and then it automatically took you to the shopping catolog and then you picked all the stuff you wanted for your sims and where you want it then it shows the movers bringin out all your stuff and puttin it in place and you can change it whenever OH and i have 2 go but when i get the chance ill write more i love posting comments!! BYE!!!

I think that in the Sims 3, there should be bunk-beds in the Buy Mode, and spiral staircases to allow more room. They should also add ceiling fans, and the sims should be able to vacuum and do laundry.

October 18, 2008 at 7:34 pm
(196) louella says:

i think the sims should be able to drive to the store and pick up items that person in real life could. and have more kid things. Like buckle them into the seat belt or car seat. and it should be pets not only in the sims 2 pets or unleashed in the regular game to. and i think you should be able to walk around on the phone. Be able to get gas. Visit other states. And just more realistic things.

I’d like to see the ghost be more real like an actual haunting. There are 100s of ways to take it, the list goes on and on. I know if you researched a bit it can be cool and creepy.

October 24, 2008 at 5:07 pm
(201) curtis says:

I mean come on ghost don’t come out just because the clock hit 7 pm or midnight. I just want to see ghost and hauntings be more realistic in Sims 3. You should also have the option of getting your house excised or calling in a ghost hunting team to investigate.

October 24, 2008 at 11:22 pm
(202) jacob hillson says:

in the sims 3 they should have a daycare for kids 1-4years old.They should have bagpacks instead of carrying books in their hand,they should also have real people voices.They should have a prom for 5th grade,8th grade and 12th grade,and in high school they should have 4 years like freshman,softmore,junior,and senior.Teens should be able to get pregnant,and when they get pregnant they stomach should take time to grow like in real life like from 1 month to 9 months and when they get to 9 months pregnant they should start feeling contractions and have to go to the hospital and push out the baby.They should have clothes for a newborn baby instead of them just having to wear diapers,and they should have more cribs and things for the baby.i want them to be able to get there liscenes and drive any car,i want there to be better jobs.when the sims are having there prom they should have alot of dresses for the ladies,and alot of suits for the gentlemen,the girls should go to the salon to get there hair done for the prom and the guys should go to the barbershop to get a haircut,the proms should be held at big spacious places.The prom should also be long because its there last dance of the year,the prom should be held on the week before graduation.The sims should have graduations and where cap and gowns,they should have a graduation for 5th grade,8th grade and 12th grade.They should have more party themes and school dances should be held everyother friday,they should get a notice from school about the school dances and the prom.Teens should be able to have cellphones instead of having to use the house phone,when the sims woohoo it should be long not short.the girls should be able to wear bra’s and have more hot clothes,the sims should have lots and lots of clothing.When the sims go shopping it should be at malls and stores,when the sims go on a dates they should be able to go to nightclubs,restaraunts,bowling alleys,coffee shops,bars,casino’s and many other places.Sims should be able to go to amusment parks and water parks to have fun and go on rides.

October 24, 2008 at 11:47 pm
(203) jacob hillson says:

in the sims 3 they should have more houses and apartments to buy when you move out.teens should be able to get married and have a big wedding.when you throw parties you should be able to have them at places instead of having them at home,when sims get married they should have the ceremony at a church or anywhere and have the reception at a big place and invite many people to parties and to the wedding.when teens have parties they should be able to give out invitations at school to there friends.when the sims watch movies they should be able to make popcorn,and they should be able to more beds and couches,and they should have dj turntables so that the sims could practice on it.

November 4, 2008 at 10:29 am
(204) TJC says:

i think that we should be able to get things like miss carrying if they add pregnancy, accidents like falls, trips, asbestos falling down, gas main bursting, floods, EVERYTHING gets dirty so there is a excuse for showers and baths, buisnesses like pencil maker (idk first idea that came into my head).

November 4, 2008 at 2:15 pm
(205) curtis says:

I agree with someone on here things should Get old and dusty, for instance a room you don’t go into very often collects dust and cob webs.

How about letting other people build your house? If you want to put in new tile or a bathroom why not pay some builder to do it all. Pay some guy to demolish or build.

Also in the previous Sims games what kind of robber just walks through the front door of a strangers house? these people usually break windows and destroy stuff to get into a house, not to mention picking locks. I think in the Sims 3 you should be given weapons to defend yourself no ones going to stand by and just let it happen.

If a fire breaks out it should burn down everything in its path, walls, floors, the whole house. In the past it was kind of corny how it only burned furnature and it was contained in a room then all you were left with was a pile of ash on the floor. Your whole house should be charred and to the ground.

I think also to things should get old such as paint, floors, maybe a nice mansion you once build is now starting to fall apart.

(211) Ash says:

What I’d like most: more diverse personalities. I like that they’re gonna do the 5 personality traits thingie but it’s not enough (to me). And I agree with the author, nobody should do the same things the same way. Maybe sims could have a certain way they do things like sitting on the sofa…maybe it would be randomized in the programming or you could choose it at the beginning or something. But the biggest thing is I’d like to choose how fast the time passes in my game. Whether it’s much closer to real life, the same as in Sims 2, or the time doesn’t pass at all. That’d be awesome…and it’s disappointing that they didn’t add an option like that. I don’t want to be skipping around my neighborhood to see what’s going on with SoandSo’s family, only to come back to the original family and see that, oh, Sally’s gone off and married Brad when I wanted her to stay single, or somebody’s done something else I don’t want them to do. It’d be nice if the families would just lay low and just stay home, go to their jobs, just exist, when I’m not playing them, at the very least. But I like the way the neighborhood’s gonna be seamless. Also, they should really get somebody on the graphics, because the hair, for example…some of it sucks. Just sucks. Yellow does not equal blonde. Not everybody has the same shade of brown hair. And eyes. Eye-whites are not really WHITE. They have shading. So on and so on and so forth and so forth. It’s hard to get a realistic-looking person, even with custom graphics, but I think the Maxis graphics could be a little better at least. …just my opinion. And can you even use custom things in Sims 3? Anybody know?

December 5, 2008 at 1:28 am
(212) Ash says:

The other thing I’d really like is to have different voices. Like you could pick one that sounds like what you think it should. Not the same darn voice for every guy and girl. It just gets on my nerves. They are really just clones of each other that way, especially along with their behavior and such. I’d like there to be a whole set of a lot of voices you could choose from. Or you could have some kind of voice-mixer inside of the family creator where you could drag a bar to the left and right to hear a variation of the voices. That would be so cool.

December 11, 2008 at 1:28 am
(213) cint says:

i think that the sims should speak english and when the kids go to school u should be able to go with them or even when thet go for a drive and there should be bunk beds and the babies should be aloud to come down town with the mum and dad and the other kids and when the female falls pregnet they should go to hospital so then sims 3 will be more like real life.

December 11, 2008 at 7:00 pm
(214) Darcy says:

i think that teen sims should be able to become prenant, get married and engaged, have abortions, live together, have woohoo’s, and u shouldn’t have 2 options-woohoo and try for baby. it should be more random. there should be a clothing section for pregnant women and teens and more variety in clothes. there should be mythical creatures and all that, and more variety in hairstyles. also, in sims creator, you should be able to choose what skills they have, how fit they are, and if they are a vampire, werewolf, mermaid, all that.

December 14, 2008 at 1:23 am
(215) Military Wife says:

OK.. so the teen pregnancy thing is a little weird. I mean.. who would want a teen to woohoo in the game. Isn’t that like child pornography. And isn’t that illegal. Let’s keep the woohooing for adult Sims.
But if we’re going to be super realistic lets like have ppl who join the military career field get deployed for like a week and sent away in a black car. At the end of the week there could be a 15% chance that miltary officers come to your house and hand you a folded flag instead of your spouse. The sim’s spouse will get 450,000 simoleans free and chicken soup delivered when they’re sick.

I’d rather see that than a teen sim get pregnant. If either one happened. I’d stick with Sims2.

teen pregnacy and whoohoos
more clothes

only 1 whoohoo option
driving the cars
incresing sims size in certion areas( huge thighs yet skinny arms)
be able to tell if their not their child
more child disapline
hospitail and doctors for like getting broken bones or chicken pox or cancer
having moms push baby out the real way
having to go into town with out loading
having whoohoo even if not in love

December 23, 2008 at 5:07 pm
(218) Caroline says:

They should keep the game rating. There should be bras. Some sims can have bigger boobs then others. The woohoo should be more longer. There shuld be movie theaters, bars, casino, ect. There should be jobs like underwear modles and actors and singers and stripers and poll dancers. Their are like 5 people writing this. There should be a mall. There should be pads for u know. There should be way better clothes. Like hotter clothes and more clothes for pregnet people. U should be able to go to school and work. You should have to push the baby out. You should have to go to the hospitail to give birth. You should break a bone or get sick or be menaling challened.

December 26, 2008 at 12:30 am
(219) Michelle says:

The sims should be able to have their period and have bras and even smoking ciggerettes. you should be able to go to MC DONALDS. They should be able to have air conditioners and fans.They should be able to drink beer, juice, milk, wine etc. They should be able to go to a hospital to puch out a baby. They should have a job as a stripper and belly dancer. And have longer SEX!

(221) PonPon says:

I don’t think that girls should have their children in hospitials, but that’s my opinion, It’s just too much work for me x). I also agree that you could get pregnet randomly from woohoo, but if you really do want a baby, you can still have the “Try for Baby” option. I think also that you should be able to change their bodies more graphicly, like customizing obesity or how fit someone is, or their head size(like me, my head is huge xD), or w/e. I also think that you could make cool voices for your sims. I hate the default voices, it’s kinda annoying. It would also be cool if your sims could be MYTHICAL CREATURES like mermaids and werewolves(and I think they should make the vampires suck blood ;D), that’d be SO COOL. I do think sims would change more…Like…Not like the transaction thing, but change gradually over time. Men’s body would get more masculine or bigger over time, while girls would get heavier or curvier or devolpe over time and stuff. Teen pregancy…And all that stuff some of you were talking about. It is a problem and it is alot like life we see today, and i’m not encouraging it and not saying it’s good cuz it’s not, but it would be a cool feature. I also think that there should be more styles, like prep,emo,jock,goth,freak,abnormal,normal,geek,spazz,rocker, and stuff like that. It’d be nice too if you could have like up to 20 sims per lot, cuz they have wants like have 10 children, and I don’t want my adorable teens to grow already, and I have to move them out. So that’d be nice

What I would like to see in the sims 3 game….
I know that some people don’t want the sims to have babies in hospitals but I do so maybe you could give a choice in the game like a screen that goes up that says, “have baby at home” or “go to hospital”. I also think that teens should be able to have babies and whoohoo.
-sims should be able to open windows
-sims should be able to have a vacuum and clean house
-mow the grass
-you should have a washer and dryer
-REAL car brands
-pregnant women should have a choice of maternity clothes
-girls should get their period when they are teens
-you should be able to make more types of bodies like some girls have bigger breasts, some have smaller ones and so on…
-sims should be able to drive babies to community lots with a carseat
-sims should be able to have funerals and weddings in church with a priest and everything
-you should have more wedding dress/cake choices
-you should be able to invite more people
-more hair choices for all ages boy and girl
-newborns should have clothes!!!!
-when babies and toddlers sleep they should have blankets
-sims should have more sleeping positions like they put their arm out or something
-CELEBRATE HOLIDAYS!!!!!(christmas, halloween,new years,thanksgiving,and Hanukkah) That would be awesome!!!!
-instead of having it go straight from day to night, it should get darker throughout the day
-and sims should get taller and bigger as they age
-basically, girls should act just like they do in real life with makeup, purses,and pads for…you know;)same with boys
-their should be specific stores for clothes, weddings,bakeries,baibies ect….
-doctors, and dentists

(225) MarleyBean says:

Well… since SIMS 3 comes out in a month I don’t know how my comment is going to effect the new game. However, I have an idea for an expansion pack. “SIMS ERA” I think the sims should live in different time periods. For example, you could have your SIMS live in the 50′s. You can only choose 50′s style clothing, technology, styles, even housing. Or you can take it back even further and have it in the 1600s style. The only thing I would want is my entire neighborhood to be in the same era. I wouldn’t want my sim to be dressed in 1920′s clothing, and my next door neighbor come over wearing clothes from the 21st century. Also, have real events from the time period effect your sim’s lifestyle, such as war, or a depression. Just an idea… I like history n such :) It would be fun AND educational!

- More places to hang out: museum, zoo, hospital, saloon, bookstore, cinema, bar, casino, roller coaster park, furniture showroom, library, music store, police station to complain about your neighbors, jail for bad people…i mean bad sims.
- In order to decorate your house, you no longer buy it from the menu; probably you can discuss with a home decorator that will bring a catalog on wallpapers, floors, furnitures. Or to buy decorations and other stuffs, you have to go to the mall and buy those things. You can choose to get it delivered to your home and carry it yourself (which means putting it into your inventories, a good idea from The Sims 2). This is the most realistic feature if you want it to be life-like.
- Clothes need to be washed and dried. Or you can send the clothes to the nearest dobby as well.
- Include all celebrations like Chinese New Year, Aidilfitri, Aidiladha, Hungry Ghost Day. Add temple, mosques and etc as well.
- Actual driving using arrow keys
- Make your own recipe using different ingredients (Expansion pack: The Sims 3 Bon Appetit!)
- More business types – Real estate, investment
- More types of diseases, illnesses, injuries and sickness.
- Newsletter to tell what’s happening around you, gossips, weddings, deaths
- Game achievement sheet: Total up of Deaths, Weddings, Babies, Richest Sim,
- Implement features from SimCity, Kudos

(229) mollie says:

(230) nastena says:

I think that in the sims 3 teens shold get pregnant. also kids should have crushes and kiss other kids of the opposite gender if they like them…

(231) beth says:

i like all the ideas it would be awesome to have strollers to so u can take ur baby places and also carseats so ur kids can go with u.

(232) jessica says:

i think sims should have to go to the hospital to have babies and the kids could break their legs and arms and they should have dseases and have to get put in the hospital. they should be able to call the hospital for emergencies like if some one is diying and you could have a funeral and you had a baby shower and an age such as 1, 5, 10,15,and so on.. instead of a child toddlar teen adult and etc.i think when they turn 15 they get their drivers liscences and have to take a driving class. babies should have clothes and tots should be able to run around in a diaper.i think they should have a birthday once every sim year. and babies on there 1st b-day they get to blow out their candles and have their very own cake and everyone else got a cookie cake or a diff type of cake. i think you should be able to call the bakery and get a chocolate or vanilla or cookie cake or ice cream cake or carrot cake and red velvet cake and all types of cake. i think they could put alot more real life stuff on sims 3… i could go on and on and on with what they could put that would be more real life on sims 3… also have surgery and get divorces and abortions,they should be able to go to the adoption services.the tots should have floaties for the pool, the kids should take swimming lessons, they sould have bikes and clubs kids could be in such a boy scouts or girl scouts. they should have 4-wheelers, and rhinos and 3-wheelers and all types of stuff and more variaties of cars… day cares could also be good for the tots. it would be good to take tots to the community lot and have strollers for them to ride in. they should have carriers for the babies car seats. go hunting, gto to art classes and extraciricular activities. go to camps in the summer have sports. have to do laundary and when you build a sim you pick out up to 5 different outfits. have trampolines and horses and tree hooouses go to friends houses kids friends could stay the night. get presents for b-days ,santa and easter bunny, should come. kids loose tooth and tooth fairy comes.little girls could play with baby dolls and little boys with army men and trucks and all types of boy stuff…

February 17, 2009 at 7:12 am
(233) beth says:

i think if a sim drinks alcohol they should get drunk, it would b so funny to see a sim wobblin everywhere nd been sick coz of 2 much drink. I do wont teens to get pregnant but its neva gona happen, to much controversy ppl will say they r encouragin it. i dont think kids nd that should b smacked by their parents its just wrong, i no it happens but its like with the teen pregancy thing, too much trouble will come from it. I like the pram idea nd been able to take babies to the park and on hol. And maybe children can have learning difficulties.

February 21, 2009 at 5:57 pm
(234) danielle says:

I agree with mimi i think you should be able to punish your children. And you should have more choices. I think that you should also be able to get cuts, scars, bruises and broken bones. You should be able to on create mode make your sims mermaids, witches e.t.c. like in the sims 2. But you should be able to choose if they have these powers at the begging. You shoul also be able to make people be bullied like many people are in real life. You should be able to make your sims have powers that you can choose! I think it would be really cool for teens to have children aswell as adults. I was thinking maybe you could make your people die of sadness or how there bullied so much. I think you should be able to have more expression to choice!!!

February 21, 2009 at 6:22 pm
(235) danielle says:

Me again, I forgot to say last time that i think it would be great to let your sims have free will in speach and that you could decide what they say. Maybe by you know typing what you want them to say in a box or something like that.
I think that you should also be able to get with the game a sort of cheat guide to the game that would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

February 21, 2009 at 6:34 pm
(236) danielle says:

I also think that your sims clothes should get dirty and that lot. I also think that your sims should be able to walk anywhere. I think you should be able to create sims with scars and birthmarks and tatoo’s. I think that you should be able to choose whether to pick your hair from the choices or be able to cut your only hairsyles. The same with clothes you should be able to design them.

February 21, 2009 at 6:44 pm
(237) danielle says:

One last thing. I think it would be such a cool idea if you could go to school and work with your sims. And make there decisions. With children and teenagers homework you should be able to see it and you actually do it. I think that the sims personality should be choosen with many different aspects to choose from. Whether you make your sim to be a bully etc. The main thing that would like to see is the fact that you could make your sims different creatures like mermaids etc.
And I think that your sims should be able to have super powers. Any kind you like. I think you should be able to choose them.
Overall i think the sims 3 should be a game where you are the boss. You can choose what your sims are. Make there personalities amazing. I think that you should be able to create a whole new sim world based on your imagination and what you feel. You should be able to connect to other computers with the sims 3 and play with them. It would be a whole new gaming exsperience.

(238) Fallon says:

Well ,, I think for a start you shouldn’t have to have an expansion to see your sims at school , I also think that they should age more naturally like they dont spin and bada-boom there another age group , I also think that should come in with breasts aswell ,, they should gradually get larger as they grow up ,, they should also be able to wash and comb their hair , and brush there teeth ,, and to be able to do their own laundry , but most of all ,, I think that they should be able to take toddlers to the park in a push bike and little babies in pram ,, and they should cry to have a dummy or something !!!

February 22, 2009 at 12:45 pm
(239) Fallon says:

I think they should be able to wash and comb their hairs , and brush there teeth , and they should age naturally like instead of them spinning and there another age group !! What I mean is they should be able to naturally get wrinkled , and this may shound stupid but their breasts should gradually get bigger ,, like as they grow older , or as they get fatter or things like that , but I also hope that they will be able to take toddlers and newborns to park and things like that with them , in push bikes , and the little ones should be able to fall aslepp in their , like they do in real life , it would be so cute if they did that ! And i think all that larky about teenae parents it a great idea , but sadly they cant do it , as if they did it wouldn’t be a 12+ game they would have to change to a 18+ game , I dont know why it is just in the rules !!

February 25, 2009 at 7:22 pm
(240) annonymous says:

Hey me again….
I think that children sims should get sick more often and blow their nose, throw up, and all that stuff, and when they do they should stay home from school. THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!!

February 28, 2009 at 3:27 pm
(241) annonymous says:

Hey me again, I just wanted to say one more thing… I think that mothers should be able to sing to their babies or tell a story to their children. Come on let’s make it as real life as possible!!!

yall all r right. im so ready 4 sims 3 to come out. but wat i really want 2 c and everybdy else, teens get pregent,have stockers,hate 2 say this get rapped but u now its live.and babies have car sets and wat would be a great idea if we all started a websit that aloud us to all talk to each other about sims cuz yall all have really great ideas and i think that some of yall should be making pc games. i’ve been reading all yalls comments and they’re really GREAT im serious. well thanks for listening.


March 30, 2009 at 2:36 pm
(243) Dave says:

What i would like to see is a nice lavish house that gets old over time, floors aren’t that shinny anymore from people walking over it. Because people, no doubt in the game are going to age so why not wood and paint, and houses? Gives your Sims a chance to do some repair work.

March 30, 2009 at 3:07 pm
(244) Dave says:

I agree i think you should be able to play in any era. Me every time i play the Sims 2 i always want to create a 20s mobster or a pirate but the era isn’t right and you have people in modern day clothes knocking on your door. I think from that times should change, say its the 20s it should eventually get to be the 30s, 40s etc.

March 31, 2009 at 3:43 am
(245) Dave says:

I want to see a weapons selection in the catalog to buy things.

April 3, 2009 at 4:32 pm
(246) jordan says:

i think…
1.teen woohoo + pregnancy
2. strollers
3.murders/ sims can commit crimes
4.jobs that can make you famous. ex.producers, musicians, actors/actresses,football players,etc.
5.have pets + kids
6.a limit to 22 insted of 8, in a household living there (pets/humans)
7.can drive the car
8.visit neighbors
9. neighbors, that you didnt create, grow older with you
10.can have sextuplets and+
11.sometimes your sim can be infertile and you have to have invetro shots to become pregnant
12.has family living there even if you dont create a family
13.father can tell when they have a kid,and if its theirs or not
14. if both the spouses are cheating on each other they dont get mad at each other if they ceatch them
15.grass grows
17.can have motorcycles
18.can pick from cars like lexus,mercadies,cadillac,escallade,bmw,rolls royce,farrari,etc.

April 5, 2009 at 5:45 pm
(247) Dave says:

Windows should get dirty and have to be cleaned, carpets and floors should show sings of aging and wear over time. Gives the Maid in the game more work if you have one otherwise its up to your Sims. I also think Sims should be evicted, electricity turned off if they don’t pay their bills. And whenever a fire breaks out by accident or whatever the fire should consume everything in its path, walls, ceiling, not this neat pile of ash we should see debris of charred couches, etc.

April 14, 2009 at 5:28 pm
(248) Andrea says:

i think that the teens should be able to get pregnant and the sims who do get pregnant go to the hospital and then the rest of the family go to visit. Also i think sims should be able to have triplets and more. Also they should sometimes get injured and get a cast or wheel chair. Another thought is the sims should age from a baby to 1 then 2 then 3 then 4 and so on. Also the sims should be different sizes like tall and short and maybe even be really fat so they cant move or so skinny they die that would be so cool!!! Also we should be able to write in a command and then they will do it!!! It woulds be so cool if you could go to school with them to!! Also they should be able to do stuff when you want them to like kiss someone they dont even know! Lastly i think they shoul be able toplay different sports and be in clubs! Oh ya also the kids should be able to die instead of be taken by the social worker! Lastly some sims should be victums of bad diseases like in real life! So thanks alot please use my ideas it would be so fun!!!(Also please make some houses really big or a nice family house or at least more rooms in the houses!!) Thanks!!

(249) ohbabehhbabehh. says:

Hello, I am a big fan of the Sims and I am going to share some of my ideas with you all.
1. I think their should be more age groups + Sims should grow up more gradually, instead of one minute their a toddler the next their a child.
2 I think there should be more stuff for the babies and toddlers, like playpens and prams etc..
3.There should be teenage pregnancy and marriages(If you don’t agree with teenage pregnancy, don’t get your teen Sims pregnant) Also, this will probably not be included in the game, even though it would be more realistic, so don’t get your hopes up guys.
4.Kids should be able to have their first kiss, and then they just wipe their mouth and do gross signs.. If that makes sense :P
5.Hair should grow and you have to go to the hair dressers if you want it cut.
6.Teeth should rot if you don’t brush them everyday.
7. Clothes should get dirty and there should be washers and dryers.
8. The floor and walls should get dirty and need cleaning, also furniture should get old looking.
9. The needs shouldn’t go down as fast as they do, because I can’t do everything I want to on Sims 2 because of the needs.
10.Sims shouldn’t wear the same clothes everyday.
11.Sims shouldn’t have to be in love to WooHoo.
12. Kids should get punished for things they do, but whoever said parents should hit there kids? That’s pathetic and sick.
13. You could commit crimes and get put in jail, like stealing or attacking somebody. Murders should not be in the game, as that is wrong.
14.Babies and toddlers should be able to go on holidays and to community lots with their families.
15. There should be a nursery for toddlers that you can pay to put your toddlers in, and go out for a bit then go to pick them up.
16. Sims should have to go to hospital to have their babies instead of them just popping out of a diamond, family and friends should be able to visit them in hospital.
17. Sims should be able to get ill and go to the doctors, if its something serious they could go to the hospital, Eg/ a child falls of their bike and they go to the hospital, when they come home they have a cast or a bandage on because they have broken their arm, leg, ankle, wrist or anything else.
18.You should be able to go to work or school with the Sims, but you should have a choice if you want to go.
19.You should have to take your driving test.
I have loadz more ideas buh me minds gone blankk.. Wirte bak love youuss {; xx

(250) Nataki says:

One thing that I don’t like about this version of the sims are the graphics.I liked the way the sims lookewd before,they seemed real.Now they just look like cartoon characters.As far as the scenery-thats cool, but you guys should deffinitely go back to the original looks of the sims.

teen pregnancys

newborns wear clothes

more age ranges

random pregnancys



having babies in hospitals

June 1, 2009 at 8:07 pm
(253) Unkown says:

I think that the sims should not be allowed to hit there children but they should be allowed to send them to a corner or a timeout chair. The babies should have more outfits to choose from. They should have play pins, cooler cribs/ high chairs, bouncers, swings, toys, maybe a bunk bed too. The teens should be able to get pregnant….

June 2, 2009 at 9:00 pm
(254) jesse merritt says:

i think there should be a bunch of jobs also you should be able to have a small farm if you want or have any type of pet

June 3, 2009 at 11:58 am
(255) Marissa says:

i think the sims should be able to go to church on sunday and pick their religion. They should also be able to go to their neighbors house and their should be teen pregnancies. You should be able to have more job choices like a model or a singer. You should be able to go to the hospitable when you have a baby lol and the sims should speak english so we know what there saying. you should be able to go to places like he zoo or an amusement park that would be really cool!

June 8, 2009 at 3:01 pm
(256) Fat Louie says:

‘Ello! Fat Louie ‘ere! lol!

i think that (like most peeps) teens should be able 2 get preggo, get married & stuff.
i mean, it’s not really fair that it can only happen 2 adults, ‘coz in REAL LIFE teens get preggo… whenever (2 any teens who read this, i’m only speakin’ on fact that it sum timez happena).
i also think u should go 2 hospital 2 give birth, do surgery, check ups, etc.
also, thingz like church & religion.
& stuff like gettin’ married on a community lot.
in church, on beach, in country, different island, etc. & a limo 2 pick u up.
& robberz! wtf?!
i mean, robberz (like sum1 said) smash windowz, break door, pick @ lock, etc.
but in The Sims 2, they just “sneack” in2 the house!
it once happened 2 me. they were all in bed & a robber came in. the alarm woke them up.
the R stood there & they stood there, starin’ @ him. the police came but then just left! he managed 2 take a picture.
it were SH*T!
also, like other peeps, i would like there 2 be more jobs. model, singer, TV peep, etc. stuff like that.
back 2 babiez, (lol) there should be more toyz for them.
bouncerz, swingz, play pinz, better high chairz & cribz, a bunk bed, etc. also (this iz sorta copyin’ sum1) there should be a place they can put their kidz when they’ve been bad.
oh, & when teenz get preggo, it would be funny for them 2 be able 2 tell the mum & dad.
like, she sitz them down & tellz them, & the dad can get mad, the mum iz in shock, sumthin’ like that, lol!

OK, well i think i’ve said enough 4 now, lol!

i have the sims 3 is that what yous are all speaking about ? ohh wells and alot of what people think should be in the game is in the game like you can drive about, go to the hospital when your having a baby, but im dont think teens can have children?

(264) Cory says:

I would like to see other ways for sims to get prego, “Trying for a Baby” isnt the only way people get prego in real life, Have a sperm donor or something and drive to a clinic or something. I would also like to see pets, and a more way more jobs like fast food worker, taxi driver. Bus drive (someone has to drive the kids to school). And i think you should be able to create a company (but just have it cost a bunch of money so not everyone can do it) and i would like to see some online play. Something like send your friend a code to your city and they download the game, have an optional “insert friend’s city code here” space. Im pretty sure i have more ideas in the back of my head but not enough time to type it all.

July 18, 2009 at 9:12 am
(265) Emma says:

I would like it if you could have your friends play at the same time and talk to you in the game. I also want to have more jobs, and get to actually go to the school and classes. Also it would be cool if you could go to the hospital when you have a baby, it’s way more normal. You should also be able to have more people in your family. More clothes, more skin tones, and more options. That would be cool. I’ve been playing the Sims since 2006 or 2007. It’s one of my favorite games ever and I play it all night for like 15 hrs. in a row. I never want to quit. I would like the game to have more age choices, like pre-teen and you can set there birthday on your own. I would like it to take longer to grow up like in real life. I know the Sims 3 will be awesome no matter what. There should be holidays, like Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and so on. They should have Christmas trees, decorations, presents, and a lot more for Christmas. For Halloween, they should get to go trick or treating and wear costumes or give out candy. Have an easter egg hunt on Easter and have a big dinner on Thanksgiving. They should be able to go out to movies with there friends and family, parties, and sleepovers. They should definitly speak english so we can understand them. It should be two player. I have almost all of the sims games. They should have an old folks home in the game to. I would like some new food in the game to. Here are my ideas for food. Popcorn, Ice-Cream, Fish N’ Chips, Corn Dogs and so on. Parade for Mardi Gras. They should have a fair that comes in town then leaves each year. It would be cool if they had some Twilight related things in it to.

(266) Georgie Porgie says:

Hi there all you Sims 3 fans. The game is already out but maybe there mite be Sims 4 in the future so heres some ideas.

* teen pregnancy and woohoo
* Basicly real life things but there should be more cheats. Phone calls should be like you have won something. You could go shopping and buy clothes etc and maybe stop off and buy a Lotto ticket and then win millions. Murders yes and no. It could be that a Sim goes out and doesnt come back. A policeman could arrive bearing news and the Sim receiving news could start crying. Also there should be funerals and the parents should buy presents when there is a birthday coming up. EG: a popup comes up and asks you to choose the present to give the birthday present. Money is taken from the family savings. like if its a childs birthday you select CHILD and then choose what you want to buy, like teddies or dolls house or mimi motor bike or bike. Adults you click ADULTS and you could select ring or jewelry or car. etc.
Cars should definitly be for sale. Houses… BIGGER BETTER!!!!!!! Different hair styles and UP TO DATE fashions. like skinny jeans etc and also medieval clothes for the olden days lover.
Woohoos should be a little longer but some things that people have said… STUPID!! this is designed for MATURE audiences, little kids use this! DUH!!! wake up! this is not a porn game.
Also more Job options and cheats.
People should be able to choose a religion if they wish and babies should be Christianed and birth selections should be available; Water, hospital in a car or at home. Basicly real life just not so gruesome. Holidays should be celebrated and like birthdays( i mentioned earliar) presents should be selected.

I hope you like my ideas. Most however have already been taken GREAT ideas!! (just not murders or smacking/beatings)

You should be able to go to real stores and be able to shop for clothes and then be able to choose it later to wear.

Be able to shop for clothes at real stores. Get famous like become a singer or a actor/actress. Sign autographs. Go to real concerts and performances. All these things would make it alot more fun.

i agree on teens getting pregnant. .i have always thought that they should be able to do that. .and they can date adults if they want to. .its suppose to be like real life and thats real life. .and only one option. .woo hoo. .which would be maybe you get pregnant and maybe not. .like real life. .there is no two options in life

October 11, 2009 at 3:30 pm
(271) Maxie says:

I really want there to be disciplining like time outs and grounding because kids do argue and get in fights. You can’t just go OMG is he ok and walk away! I also want more pets, better seasons, apartment buildings with more apartment rooms and people who don’t stand around talking about toilets and such! I do have sims 3 but an expansion with this would be great. Teen pregnancy would be good because then the people can have more kids because they won’t be almost elderly when they have four kids. I want to be able to see the sims work and have little work bubbles pop up and tell you to like photo copy something and then you do that and at break time be able to stand with coffee and talk to friends. Plus the cruddy cars that drive you home have to go. We need more skills like a teen should have a learn to drive skill and if they crash because their skill is low they should go to the hospital and everyone is right we need broken legs and illnesses. Plus we need to be able to go to people’s houses even when they aren’t there. I also think that they shouldn’t say your toddler cannot stay home alone would you like to call a babysitter? Not really! So what my single mother has to go to work moron! So her money is sucked out of her and its like she’s not even working! I think they should be able to actually pick up sports and you watch them play sports like soccer, field hockey, football, baseball, softball. I mean they don’t just toss a ball around they sign up for teams and nerds should be able to go to conventions! I also think they should surf that would be cool! Sims has a long way to go and by the time our younger generation is older they’ll have this stuff and the teens in 2025 will have fun playing this while the teens of today have jobs and can’t play. Sims might as well step it up now.
