It does, doesn't it? SIms 1 is charming. I hope Late Night brings that charm back!

Anyways, I wonder how the new hood will look like with: penthouses, normal houses, apartments, rabbit holes, open community lots, career lots...

I can just hear the conversation the sims have when eating.. And oh, when I look at that picture and see those pink tulip things I remember how annoyed I used to be when it came to gardening as you had to tend the plants I liked the idea of having a gardener come over though

I hope this EP will be really good. And I mean really really good. Who knows? Maybe 'Late Night' will be the Sims 3's 'Nightlife'. You couldn't enjoy the Sims 2 without it. Maybe it will be the same.

It's definitely easier to learn one instrument after learning another. One of the big things you need to learn is beats and notes and how to keep time - that crosses over for ALL types of instruments. Someone who knows how to play the strings of a guitar is going to acclimate far more quickly to a bass than someone who is just learning how to play the bass. Same with wind and brass instruments.


you've definately got a different perspective than me....i can play the piano..trumpet...and French Horn....but can not for the life of me play the Clarinet..or the guitar....i learned the first 3
in high school and the last 2 i have now....it does not work the way you think.....

a C note is different for every instrument......

I'm glad you all enjoyed the picture!

Is does take you back, and the original sims series did have its charm. I'm looking at pictures of Unleashed, and I love the French Quarter building designs.





Hopefully Sims 3 will retain some of this charm in it's coming expansion packs.

I'm liking all those TS1 pics. I hope this current generation of developers are familiar with the original concept of the game and play it from time to time, otherwise they just wont 'get it.'

I liked the theme park stuff in TS1. TS2 never did try that.

Well I think we have to conclude that it does for *some people*. A compromise would be that if the sim has the virtuoso trait, they can be regarded as having a special gift for it, so once they learn an instrument they can pick up the others very easily. All other sims have to start from the beginning with each instrument. OK?

I think DJs are confirmed. This was posted today at LosSims3.com:

Oh, I will. Still, built-in sliders would be nice (not at nice as height sliders, but that's a whole other thing).

Will break existing sliders though, most likely, and make me start an entire new hood. I may never get to a third generation of sims.

It only would make sense because what is a club without a DJ? It would be rather silly if there weren't any DJs, so I'm not surprised that there are. I like that you can become one, too.

Wow, so this is gonna be like Nightlife and Apartment Life rolled into one (minus witches)? Sounds like it's gonna be awesome!

If that's the case maybe they'll do another expansion dedicated totally to magic, like Makin' Magic.

Makin' Magic, Pets and Seasons, all rolled in one :D

That was, we can have a pet dragon (or a black cat, or a pat rat, or owl), and seasons can affect magic polarity (or have a dog for gardening and digging holes for plants), and weather can play into elemental spells. That would be an excellent EP, IMP. Magic would kinda over shadow. If they add farming to this, in an old, secluded small town in the middle of nowhere with a history dark history: instant hit :p

And I'll add DJ

It's not Nightlife with Apartment Life only. It's also House Party, Superstar. :P

And I don't think they'll do a Makin'Magic EP standalone. They're mixing EPs together, or adding new concepts, so they'll probablt mix Makin' Magic with something new (since the themes that are missing are magic, weather and pets, and I really think they'll mix pets and weather).

Slightly off topic but I wish they had the ability to have two jobs. This one does look like it will be really good honestly. I am sure there are quite a few gems in there that we do not know about yet. I think it's starting to bring back the magic that we had in previous sims packs.

I found the below in the translated French article from jeuxvideo.com:

jeuxvideo.com> With the addition of professions night, will it be possible to combine jobs and work day and night?
If your group is quite famous concerts and earned the night, you should be able to provide these representations after your day job. You can also spend the night as mixologists after work.<

I guess that means we may be able to have to two jobs; I sure hope so, lol... I did try to link the original article, but it wouldn't work (it was a link to the translated version) It can be found on Simprograms, though...

Thanks Ranissa. It's just a bit odd that the press released in the different languages contain different info
