  • Q: Ok, Gunter Goth And His Family are The Founders Of Sunset Valley. And Look At all The New Places In The Game, Theres A New Graveyard, And A Beach, And A Museum. But my questions is If Sunset Vally Is Pleasentview A Few Years Back, The Why Don't These Places Appear In The Sims 2 Pleasantview? (NOTE: This Game Must Be Dated Back Very Far, Because The Bridge In Pleasentview Doesn't Appear In Susent Vally, am I right?)

  • Q:If All Of These New Families Appear In The New Game, Then How Come Mortimer Goth Cannot Remember?, There Is A Brand New Family The Game Called "Altos", And There His Parents Arch Enemy, How Come Mortimer Has No Memory Of Them In The Sims 2? (My Guess: They Might Have Been A Spoiler If They Where Remembered But Not Featured. Is that a good guess?)

A: No, you're wrong. The Langraabs are at war with the Altos, and Mortimer is completely unlrelated. Also, remember that the Sims 3 was created AFTER the Sims 2. The devlopers making the Sims 2 wee not concentrating on the Sims 3's story when making it.

  • QThere Was A Mysterious Fire In The Sims 2, Within Mortimers Memory's Ad Least, Acording To The Memory, And The Articles. Mortimer Burned Down His own House By Cooking, If So, Did That Fire Spread?, Because Most Of The Buildings In The Sims 3 Don't appear In The Sims 2, Could this Be The Cause? ...

A: No. Nothing like that will happen.

  • Q I have a few questions that came to me. 1)Will there be churches that Sims can attend? 2) Will teens be able to have tattoos? 3) Will the Caliente, Lothario, Newbie, and Oldie families be returning? 4)Can we create custom neighborhoods like in TS2, or is Sunset Valley going to be the only neighborhood in the base game? I understand if you can't answer some of these, but any answer is fine with me! Mattlovesthesims 16:34, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Q: Many ppl forget that the sims is such a step from the sims 2,making it such a large game that any previews we have now can only cover a small sample of the gaming experience, since many of these previews are on the incomplete game and they arerestricted on not nearly enough time. Especailly since people have to try to get use to the new exciting foreign game,in order to even attempt to compare it to other previous games of the sims genre. keeping that in mindmy question is: Can sims influnce other sims like in the sims 2. If not, how can they? 2)Is there a flowershop? If not can I make one?

Sims 3 Edit

Hi! I've never bought a sims game for PC (I only have bought them for ps2) and I was reading about the Sims 3. Does it include eveything? Or is it just specific games? Also, which sims do you recommend? I guess this is mostly advice. Thanks, Jenny Vincent♣ 02:41, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

my sims 3 is super slow and only my gamplay mods are working not my content mods! Edit

Hey guys! So I've had Sims for more than 10 years and I love this game but ever since I got a new computer the problems have started. SO its now a Sims 3 and the so slow i mean its ridiculous! It pauses for about 30 seconds and then gives me about 5-10 seconds of normal gameplay, that drives me nuts! So anyways my mods are so crazy now too so only the mods that affect gameplay are working but not my content mods and not only that but my load up is horribly slow about 100-160 min? so anyways I have tried deleting the folders and putting them back and deleting the resource.cfg file and redownloading and absoutlely nothing is helping I actually didnt sleep for 3 days because i was trying to figure this problem out! i finally gave up until yesterday when i was playing one random little clothing mod popped up and the reignited the flame. so now i am determined to now fix this problem! SO please guys im begging you please help me fix this lagging and why are only the gameplay mods working and not content?! does it have something to do with windows 10? also i know that it can sense it because when i take them out and only have like 50 mods it takes like 10-30 min to load but if i have my mods then it takes 3-4 times longer to load up so I know it reads them yet theyre not showing up. And i know im kind of on the right path because for the longest time neither types of mods would work but now i have atleast the gamplay mods working. Thank you sorry this is so long!
