Color Coded Ghosts in Sims 3

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a lot in my Sims 3 game that is haunted.
They don’t cause too much trouble…well…just don’t count levitating the fridge…and they come in all of these pretty colors. I didn’t think much of it until I saw this video that shows how the ghosts got their colors.

Starvation: purple
Drowning: blue with water dripping
Fire: Orange with flames
Electrocution: yellow with lightning bolts
Old Age: Grey

Now, instead of looking at my ghost Sims like [sometimes] bothersome trumped up lawn ornaments, I actually feel a little bit bad for the transparent ghosties.
And then, because it came up as a …read more

Sims 3 World Adventures IGN Preview

I know that I’ve said a few times that I don’t plan on running right out and buying World Adventures when it hits stores next month. And, I still don’t plan on pre-ordering the game or anything but this video from IGN has made me much more interested than I have been in the past.
For some reason, the fact that the zombies can curse you adds a new degree of interest. I’m also interested in the fact that there seems to be some directed play in the expansion. While I love the free-form nature of Sims 3, I often find …read more

2009 Lexus IS F for Sims 3

I have for you a 2009 Lexus IS F for your Sims 3 to drive around.
First off, what graphics card is Fresh-Prince using? How freakin’ awesome does this screenshot look?!
This car is going to set your Sims back $58,000 but is completely worth it when you look at house wonderful this car is.
I’ve downloaded this Lexus but haven’t had a chance to play it in-game yet so my next two statements are assumptions.
Since it’s not stated that the headlights don’t work, then I’m going to assume that they work in this car. Also, I assume that the car is recoulorable …read more

GamesCom is to Europe what E3 is to the US and this year, GamesCom attendees got a nice big taste of what’s to come with World Adventures, the first expansion for Sims 3.

In addition to the free SimsPoints, you’ll also get to learn new skills that are only available with the expansion and you’ll be able to customize your Sims’ homes with stuff …read more

The Sim 3 World Adventures Trailer

The Sim 3 World Adventures Trailer

I know you’re doing the happy dance since it’s not too long [Nov 16th] until World Adventures hits store shelves for Sims 3. Actually, if you’re like me, you’re waiting around to see if all of the brouhaha is really going to pay out or if this is going to be a lame expansion. If it’s lame, then you’ll pat yourself on the back for having saved your money and if it rocks…well…you’ll kick yourself and then go out and get the expansion.
SO, I see no harm in sitting back to see what everyone thinks about the expansion. Heck, I …read more

Things I Downloaded Today for Sims 3

Things I Downloaded Today for Sims 3

I actually downloaded a lot more than this, but, these three are easiest to show you.
All of these downloads came from Lostaccount on Mod the Sims.

Faster potty training – comes in two speeds: 4x and 10x with 10x meaning that your toddler will master potty training on the first try
Faster walking – this one comes in two speeds as well: 4x and 10x with 10x meaning that your toddler masters walking super fast
Faster talking – again, two speeds: 4x and 10x…you get the idea

I downloaded all of these to my desktop and then installed them using the Helper Monkey and …read more

The Fray: You Found Me Machinima

The Fray: You Found Me Machinima

I love this song. LOVE it.
I also love it when people make machinima out of songs I like so how could I NOT like this video. It’s a bit depressing but then again, the song can be a bit depressing depending on how you interpret it.
I like how the director framed the opening shots and really made a complete story in just a couple of minutes. I won’t ruin the ending for you but it is pretty depressing. Still good, but depressing.

Pixie Lott Records Song for Sims 3

Pixie Lott Records Song for Sims 3

Pixie Lott’s single, Mama Do, debuted last month and she’s already re-recorded it in Simlish. Her first album, Turn It Up, comes out in September and with all of the attention that the Sim community is giving Ms. Lott, I have a sneaking suspicion that the album is going to do really well. She has a great voice and seems like a super down to Earth chick in this video.
Also, am I the only one who was surprised to see the lyrics all written out in Simlish? Maybe I was just expecting them ad lib it.
Whatever. I think this is …read more

Sims 3 The Scary Truth Parody Video

If you ask most kids [and some adults] what they think about the idea of their parents having sex, most will shudder and some might even gag.
This “fear” seems to be almost universal and Maxis has put an interesting twist on the whole issue. Not only is the opening text funny but the whole video made me chuckle. Also, as time goes on and people get more comfortable with Sims 3, we’re going to see a lot more quality machinima using Sims 3.
Watch this “horror” video and try not to laugh.
