I know thats only a rendered image of the pet store.. But it sure looks rabbitholey to me... Maybe its the opaqueness of the windows or something... I pray that it isn't. And making our own pets stores?? Hell yes! Now we just need an OFB style pack so we can own it!! ^.^ Can't wait to see the smaller caged/object pets.

And yeah - the town definatley looks new. They are probably giving us a new one for the whole horses/farming community to live in. :)

Yes, it does look quite a bit like a rabbithole, but it's been confirmed that it isn't.

This is pretty crazy, but awesome. I just knew EA could allow open community lots if they wanted to. Take that all of you naysayers! :ton:

Now I really hope that this is the start of us getting the other open community lots back as well.

BTW, it's been confirmed that there will be a new world. Although the world in the trailer looks like a modified Riverview, so it most likely likely isn't the new world that will be included in the final product.

I know for a fact that EA was limited to Sim detail. That always seemed like a problem (In Sims 2 at least) because the pets were waaay more detailed then the sims. And it somewhat one uped the sims. The same thing is here, except, aswell as the sims, the animals are less polished to give that tiny more realistic look. What I mean for less polished is that they aren't so smooth and flawless, like sims 2 sims & animals were. Get my drift?


I never noticed that about TS2 before but totally see it now.

The sim in this pic looks blockier than the cat:

Yeah! That's a perfect example. But see how in Sims 2 EVERYTHING was polished and completely smooth? I don't like that as much as the sloppy yet pristine sims 3 look. I think one of the advances was "effects" whereas hair is a rendered effect instead of a regular mesh, and then how there are actually a lot more polygons in The Sims 3 clothes compared to Sims 2. And the Sims in Sims 2 were way too polished for the textures they were rocking. Realistic textures work a thousand times better in Sims 3. It's just how everything is rendered, really.

Don't forget that this is likely the 360 version, so either the PC version will look better, or both share the same graphics and is limited to what the 360/PS3 can do.

If everything in that trailer can be done and isn't staged(bullies, robber, etc), they definitely 1Up'ed the Pet's expansion from Sims 1 and Sims 2.

I think its a modified Riverview, there very similar and some of the buildings are the same.
I'm sure the new neighbourhood will be 10 x better, EA seem to have gone all out on this expansion :)

I seem to remember when awaiting sims 3s release, there were a few staged bully/nerd type images infront of the school... Alas, that doesnt really happen, so I guess this is staged... As for robbers.. Don't we already get those??

As for the graphics... I wonder which way round it is... Your Definatley right about it though. I just hope that the pc version will be better, I know I shouldn't be complaining about the graphics, but to me they look a little TOO unpolished... And something about the horses face/teeth/eyes look totally weird/creepy. Maybe that's just me though...

I meant how the dogs chase the robbers away. Would be cool if a dog will do that at home.

After watching the HD version of the trailer, I think they look pretty good even if that's what the PC version will end up looking like too. They're a little on the shiny/plastic side though, but so are the Sims.

Gah, EA suck with continuity. They've abandoned the front cover colour theme they've had since Hot Date. :stare:

Wait, what do you mean?
OH WAIT. I know what you mean. How every EP had a different color. Well.. late night /kinda/ had a color.

Actually, they didn't, the color is sky blue since it's almost in every shot... or sky blue/green.

That wishy washy blue background scenery that was on the earlier coverart can now only be seen in the grim reaper section!

I like the cover, although it is a little cluttered. Still, it will be the game that really matters - not the plastic box it's in.

Actually, turns out it's fake or at least, it's one variety of the cover as according to a recent post at SimPrograms the team at EA is working on various covers for the game... IMO that's retarded, choose one and plaster it on everything, kay?

That's so crazy, expecially with all the different languages, that it's fake.

It's not entirely fake, as EA Russia posted it.

I'm guessing that the cover with the full-colour backgrounds will be the special edition, and the normal version will be the blue cover from before.

Just looked sims 3 pets up on amazon and it says release date October 31st, 2011... lol... why halloween? :wha:

I don't trick or treat so I'll definitely be playing the pets expansion that day! :dance:

So... if it is the OFFICIAL date then we have 127 days to go... :shift: Why does it have to be so long?
