talking on the phone while doing various things like cooking, playing that damn snowboarding game, relaxing on the bed, etc.
able to lay objects in more places- like bills on the mantle (your sim could maybe set them on fire... accidentally!) newspaper on the chair.
i'd also like to be able to place sinks in islands.
there are more things I'd like to see, I'm sure, but they don't come to mind atm!
Toddlers to be able to go up and down the stairs, regardless of the type.
*Different shaped and sloping driveways.
*Animated blinds and Curtains - shut at night and open in the morning.
*Animated Windows - Sims can open them - Climb in and out of them - great for burglers also.
*Fireplaces that once lit, keep burning till we tell our sims to put them out. Add fuel could be an option while they are burning.
*Children and teens place Homework on a desk NOT the floor. Option to consign a desk for just homework.
*Strollers for Babies/Toddlers and to be able to take them every where our Sims can go.
*Pets, Farm and Zoo animals
*Different types of drivable vehicles- cars, trucks, covered and uncovered waggons, carts, western type stage coach, victorian carrages, etc.
I would definatly buy the game if the last two were included in the original game, but knowing Maxis I will have to wait for the inevitable EPs
Maybe things related to clothes, like taking them off without that spin, taking off clothes as in real life (as in the EA'a switch-and-bait promo video full of lies when TS2 was going to be released) and having more than one outfit for each category...maybe the need to wash the clothes could be added...more realistic things
If they are going to give us cheats for normal things, I hope that they will at least include a button menu that you can just turn on or off. I'm so tired of typing the snapobjectstogrid cheat on and off all the time.
I'd love to have a window that comes with a window seat already attached so you can place it against the wall and Sims can sit and have the option to read, relax or gaze out the window.
I know that's pushing it though but I'd love to see that. Bay windows with window seats make a room look so homey.
I'd love for parents to be able to teach children how to cook or how to fix things. Not so that if they don't, the child won't know how to do it but they will learn how to do it faster and better if someone instructs them on it.
i think if there were animated doors it would get old.
like at first we'd all be like "Coool! theyre actually opening it!"
but if it slowed down the 'going-through-a-door' process i cant see it being very popular
but it might be cool if say, they crept out of a room that someone was sleeping in (like the sneak out interaction now)
I remember there was this one double door that does open automatically. Very cool--hope TS3 gets REVOLVING doors instead--like those in hotels.
Eh, I'm kinda soured on revolving doors. Just recently they put one into our building at work. First time I've ever gone through one. I find it annoying (the door is kind of heavy and it's slower to go through than one you pull open). So I'm just silly enough never to use revolving doors in Sims because of it. Wouldn't mind having them, though. I don't have to use them, and it'd make others happy.
