Lolol, I wondered the same thing about her face too, lolol... in all honesty though, I think these townies look better than the Bridgeport lot - had to go through all of them and re-do each one, they were so fugly to me, lolol...
Thanks for the pics, matrix54
I just got mine installed. I thought it was kind of dumb that the installation process asked for my code...considering I downloaded the game through Origin, and the code was right there on the info screen. I've never had to do that before, it's always just started installing automatically after downloading if the game was through Origin.
Seriously though, why are EA townies so ugly? D:
I always have to kill off the premades and populate the towns with my own sims.
Got dammit! I just got through eating, can you all give a fellow simmer a warning before you show stuff like this?

Glad the motivation wasn't there to get this EP. Still haven't inquired to my game shop about it. I know the manager is wondering where is the old, crazy, hair all over her head, lady screaming that she wants the new EP on Monday before the release?
I must say that after killing off a large portion of the town with MasterController, my experience is going a lot better. I mean, why should I lag myself out with ugly sims? (My game is running smoothly, and my eyes are no longer bleeding.)
Is the coffeehouse a rabbithole? a community lot? or a combination of both? I saw the Flying V listed (on SimsVIP) as if it were a rabbithole, but people have been complaining about no barristas... so I'm confused.
That first sim in the slideshow looks a lot like a good friend of mine.

I'm a girl. Angie. Or DS for all of you lazy shmucks out there. You know who you are.

cameranutz2: thanks for the pictures, I really liked the ad with the two girls with a coke. I hope it's a spoiler for future bottle drinking. Sims don't really drink from bottles, except in TS2 you could drink water from the bar.
There were a few nice looking community lots and low end houses but other than that, the town looks quite dull.
matrix54: lol at the pictures. Are you sure you took pictures of SS not your hillibilly game? those can't be the brightest stars of America.
What Periandre asked, is the coffee house a RH? can you buy take-away coffee? if yes, can you buy it from the register?
Also, what is the "dummy" crowds like? does it make your clubs look more filled? how do they interact, can you interact with them? or how do they work.
The rag to riches thing, is there any low end housing, low end deco, low end furniture that looks trashy?
The Sims in town look the way they live, to put it simply.
I'll try my hardest to test out the dummy crowds. I really will.
-The "coffeehouse" rabbithole does nothing new. It's a new "diner". It even looks like a diner (on the inside).
-The only really low end item that I've seen in the game is a stack of news papers Sims can sit on, which is quite cheap. There's also a plain, but not exactly cheap bed. But, it's stats say otherwise.
Oh, and you CAN buy drink on the new community lots, but it's nothing like LN. There needs to be a proprietor on the lot - i'm not sure how that works out, I haven't played it enough yet -and you have to find him/her (hopefully, somewhere near the bar, but I think you can call him/her), and then ask for a drink. Then you WAIT for the Sims to find the bar, and get you a drink (hand delivered to you). It's not coffee, but it's something, I guess. They get the "juiced" moodlet when ordering drinks.

Thanks for the pics, really nice! I actually like the community lots and RHS, but the houses... meh. Anyway, you can't expect too much from EA houses. They at least did good job with community lots design. And landscape. We'll see, what can be done to improve this little town...
[QUOTE=matrix54]Random Facts and About Big Show Shells:
The crowd marker is 30 x 20. O_O
O_o, why the hell so big! I do have a huge empty lot await in my current town (wanted to make a park there, but saved it in case i need it for SHT, and it was the righ thing to do, as I see now). Anyway, they could've made this marker smaller, at least a bit.
