Post Fed up with Bridgeport
Any one else fed up with Bridgeport, sure its good to go to but don't really want my family to live there!

Pissed at Ea for not making it so you could go down town from ure original neighbourhood like the sims 2

I'm fed up of Bridgeport as well but mostly due to the lenght of the time it takes to do stuff. By the time my sims actually enter a club/bar/lounge its closing time especially if they have to deal with an elevator. The only late night place I like is the Haunts dive bar.
So far I've abandoned Bridgeport to play with Sunset Valley by moving the haunts place to that hood and creating a few (lame) late night spots of my own.

I put a dance club at the beach in twinbrook which looks good and remade The Red Rendezvous into a pub.

I put aload of families from Sunset valley in houses over there like the goths eg. even added Don Lotherio!

Now its alot better than Bridegport

I really hate elevators, too slow ea did crap with them!

Not a lot of love for Bridgeport...? I haven't got the EP yet but the new city looks exactly like what I've been looking for, a more urban setting for my Sims. Sunset Valley is a bit too bright and happy for my liking sometimes.

Well, Bridgeport is stunning to look at, but it's just so unplayable for me. Yeah it's fun to make your single vampire sim, put them in their expensive apartment and let them party all night, but then (after crying because your sim has been standing by an elevator for 3 days) you get bored of your one Sim, and you want them to have a family. The only way you can do this is by becoming a celebrity with lots of money and buying an expensive home, or building a house. Now for me, I can't build houses because I don't have the patience, so I bore of Bridgeport really easily. For someone who likes building houses and does it often, they can build family homes and play that way, I can't so it doesn't work. Oh wells, Twinbrook and SV are amazing. :3

It seems like the problem is spec based. Personally, the only thing I see wrong is the commute time, but thats actually correct. The idea is to get big and save up fro a really fast car to cruise around the city. I have no complaints as of yet. There are always a lot of celebs at the Hotspots. My sim works til 7pm, so I can only get him to places probably by 8:30pm, 9. But he's already a 4 star celeb. I just want to experiment with the publicly disgraced part of it. How does that work?

It isn't spec based! I haven't had a problem wants at getting sims to clubs and pubs hotspot or not both times they got good amount of people in, the elevator was better in the sims 2!

I would of prevered them to keep it like the sims 2 but with an open neighbourhood

I agree with the 'by the time you get there it's closing time'... I've had to tell my sims to leave the house or apartment 2-3 hours early just to get to the club/dance area.

It takes forever for the elevators to move/load on/load off. There is lag time I notice when your in a club/hang out/dance/bar, when you ask your sim to do something it takes them awhile to respond or actually follow through with the action if it's on another level or going up the stairs. By that time 45mins to an hour is gone.... so all in all your sim only does MAYBE 3-4 actions before it's time to leave. Of course you can download mods to have the clubs go 24 hours, which I'm tempted to download.

I know for a fact that some of that random lag time, in my case, is awesome mod. it's been reported that after AM, there will be times where the sim just sits there waiting for their action to kick in. I notice this when my sim changes for work, he just stands there for 3-5 sim minutes. I could be the game, or AM, but i'm not sure. Generally speaking though, I cannot see too much of a lag. Elevators are weird, but for what they are worth, they match up with how fast the rest of the game works. I think maybe i have a problem because of the ammount of sims that are around, rather than loading. Idk.

Laggy, annoying, unplayable, and elevator rape pisses me the hell off. It would be faster in Sims 2, and in Sims 2 you could only have 2 people at max. (At least in Sims 2 you could use the fire escape -.-)

The vampires are awesome, and so are the celebs, but damnit, it's so unplayable. I'd rather have a beach with loads of low night clubs with basements than a fun filled city. At least then I'd be able to play it.

So the general consensus would be that this EP is not a good way to spend Christmas money? lol

@Envious, no, still get it, it's a really good game, lots of great features and lovely items for CAS and Build/Buy, just don't get your hopes up for Bridgeport unless your system surpasses the games requirements twice... and a half. xD

I think it's a good 'hood for single Sims but not a good place for kids. Just not much to do. And I've come to hate elevators and high-rise living. By the time you phone anyone and he/she actually arrives at your apartment, so many game hours have gone by that there's no point in going out anymore. I'm going to put my Bridgeport Sims in small houses so they can spend more time really doing stuff and less time waiting for the **** elevators.

I love the ep but hate hate hate Bridgeport this is one instance where I can say that the problems are def not the computers (well some of them aren't) my cpu is way above what the required specs are and I haven't had any problems with any ep's until this one. I don't play Bridgeport at all its a huge disappointment. It does take a long time to get anywhere it's ridiculous. I don't have mods or cc at all so I know it's not my end. I can't believe they haven't fixed it yet I'm actually shocked usually they're good about getting patches out so I don't know what their problem is. I love how Bridgeport looks and it would be great to play if it were playable. They should have def made it like sims 2 where you can go downtown from any hood not make it it's own hood :no:

After playing in Bridgeport I have to say, I agree with that it sucks. It's laggy, the elevators stop working and there are a million cars stuck everywhere with no drivers.

I'm sure its not AM, since this started happening waaay before I started using AM...

I think Late Night is the best ep yet and Bridgeport is the best town. Everyone has different opinions so you might as well get it then you can try it out for your self

Why does Bridgeport remind me of Liberty City?
