Default Sims 3: Favorite build features?
What are your favorite building features in TS3. Is it the seamless neighborhood, for some great picture taking or is it the pattern chooser in which you can make your whole lot match. (Window and door wise)

Also, what annoys you the most? The black of placing the lots where you want? Or the lack of build objects?

Annoys me - the fact that there are so many step backs from the tools in the sims 2, and that the level tool locks onto the floor you used it last on.

Like the most - The prettiness of the overall game :p

I would like to know what people don't like about it compared with The Sims 2. Specifically from the builder's perspective. It might help me decide whether I want to waste money on it one day.

Remember, being paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you.

From a builders perspective, I'd say the difficulty increased tenfold. Now there is a whole new level in regards to building or buying stuff. You can color-customize everything (or just shy of everything), which is cool, but a little unrealistic when you have a whole house to work on. Doing one or two pieces might be fine, but imagine a whole house full of stuff; it is a little stressful to go through every piece in the house to make sure it matches everything else. I just skip the color-customization and just whatever color they give me. I don't give a darn if it matches. If I ever uploaded anything, I would put in the effort, but just to play it, I won't. And because it could potentially be such a hassle to do all the customization, I dunno if I will upload any Sims3 stuff.

I do like being able to customize the clothing, however, and I do spend the time with that.

I don't like how your cursor acts funny when placing objects. Rather than putting your cursor over a specific square and having the object be placed there, your cursor has to be over the object (so if you are placing a ceiling light, your cursor won't be over the square that the light is over). That probably sounds complicated and confusing, but it is a bit of a pain ingame. Makes placing objects a little trick to get the hang of.

Yeah, that took me forever. I'm kind of a perfectionist, so I made myself customize it ALL.
>.< The building is harder, but the end results look far better.

Don't follow in my footsteps- I walk into walls.

Yep.
I love being able to customize it *squeal* I have this awesome house, but the roof won't show no matter how high I go, and my graphics card is as high as it goes... Then again, my apparent card wasn't made for gaming..
Maybe I missed something in the Options...
I think if I make anything, it'll be TS3...

Oh, hi, how are you holding up?

Nah, But I mean like the testingcheatsenabled true
I know most of them...I think.
I just wish that you can make sims selectable and unselectable instead of adding them to the family and making em unremovable..
