The green around the Sims should be enough to tell you it's fake.

That was my indication but beside that is just the name and the overall look. But I didn't want to jump on anyone who isn't as sure as I was.

Man, you guys are good. I totally don't have an eye for those details. I also thought the name was off but other than that, I was fooled. Good job, whoever made it. :laugh:

The Sims 3 Official Page for the Netherlands might have posted a hint for Seasons today.

http://isims.us/2012/07/the-sims-3-seasons-hint/

What do you think? hint or just fan made speculation or whatever it's called :laugh:

EDIT: Also some swedish sites have started listing Seasons too and a UK site

Swedish Site: http://www.homeenter.com/sv/childrensclub/product_readmore/the-sims-3-seasons-pc/s272330/748500/?searchPhrase=sims

UK Site: http://simsvip.com/?p=13223&cpage=1#comment-185551

The Coverart is probably fake. but atleast they have started listing it here where i live :yeah:

Also if there is someone that can't wait for Seasons here's an awesome mod that can make it rain and snow. Sadly no snow or rain on the ground but atleast it gets cloudly when it rain and snows :ton:

Screenshots from my game using the mod:

I'm 100% sure that boxart is fake.

Aside from looking not so great, it also used part of the flier that came with The Sims 2 Pets saying that The Sims 2 Seasons is coming out next.

Offtopic: Here's a question, I've played with In-Game effects, but does the rain still appear in 3D space with the crescent moon time mod by cmomoney? It's not just a HUD overlay like in Sims 2, right? Sims 3 has created VERY nice visual effects that still render in 3D space, I really like whatever they did to make them like that.

It's like both. The Snow/Rain is still 3D Space but the rain/Snow follows the camera like in Sims 2. Does that make sense? Im not really good at explaining. :laugh:

PERFECT okay. Because I've played around with the effects spawner and it originally appears to be right in front of the camera but then when I zoomed out I could see that it was confined to a boxish area, and was curious if EA was going to load different sheets of it or just have the one follow the camera. Hmm, interesting.

What confuses me is how they're planning to accommodate the whole seamless zoom thing - it's going to absolutely murder your computer if every single tile was rendered with snow/rain and you were zoomed out to map view.
Unless something happens so when you zoom out to a certain distance the snow becomes a camera overlay rather than a 3D effect.
But then again, you could be zoomed in close but pan the camera so it's horizontal and then the game would have to render all that snow.
Unless the level of detail is affected by distance.

Hmm. I can see why it's taken them so long, the effects alone would be difficult and confusing to do in the context of the seamlessness of the world while trying to keep them basic and simple enough to be able to run on most computers.

Still not proof. I'll only believe it when it's announced by EA. But then, I have no intention of purchasing it so I could give 2 fucks if they ever do.

Why do you even come to this site if you hate EA so much? I can say that i hate them but it feels like they have gotten a bit better now with Supernatural coming in September and Seasons in November. And no one gives a f*ck if you won't buy the game. so bye bye!

YAY! :dance2: :dance2:

The official facebook page The Sims 3 for Germany (I think) have started hinting about Seasons, they asked a question today about which was our favorite Season.

I agree, could you please take ur attitude somewhere else. I understand that your unhappy with the series and you are allowed to express that. But please dont be so negative all the time.

I suspect Seasons will be officially announced at PAX Prime in Seattle over Labor Day weekend. Oh, and did I mention I'll actually be in attendance? Looking forward to the total nerd-fest!

EDIT: Well, I was wrong! LOL But maybe I'll get to see it at PAX, even if it's already announced.

Maybe, but my guess is that they announce it for everyobody at Gamescom because that is in Mid-August. and also EA is inviting Sims fansites to a conference in mid-august

Quote:
A few days ago, Fansites from around the world revealed they were invited to an exclusive community event at EA’s California Studio in mid August. The last time EA invited worldwide fans to their HQ’s, was for World Adventures. Seeing as the event will take place so close to Supernatural’s release, speculation has started as to what exactly fans will go home with. Could a Seasons announcement be on the horizon? (After all, we will basically know all there is to know about Supernatural by then.)

With 4 months left, there isn’t a whole lot of time to advertise Seasons after Supernatural’s release. There is no telling what awaits, but you can check out Platinum Simmers for info on this event. They are also taking questions, so make sure to submit your questions by tomorrow! SimsVIP was not invited to the event, but we will keep you updated as the information rolls through.

I'm convinced! Will this be the last one or can I start complaining about not having a University expansion?
