Skin Tone Genetics[edit source]

Q Just wondering, is having children in this game different with skin tones? Like if someone dark skinned and someone light skinned have a child, will that child land somewhere in between? I might have over looked it, sorry if I did, just wondering. Cheap novelty 02:20, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Since skin tones can be chosen by a slider it is possible that children will have a melded skin tone. -- a_morris 15:21, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

A Yeah what a_moris said the sims will have skintones that are mixed (for example If you created a blue sim (using the color palete) and a yellow sim (using the color palete) It might come out a green sim or they said sometimes it will come out blue or yellow --Sprite7868 22:56, 12 February 2009 (UTC)-- Sprite7868 14:43, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Q Will you be able to shift body sliders, (i.e make the hips on a female sim bigger/smaller?)

A I heard some where a long time a go that you could change any part of the body you wanted like you could create somebody with fat body with short legs or the other way around Still dont know if this is true or not--Sprite7868 22:56, 12 February 2009 (UTC)-- Sprite7868 14:43, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Requirements?[edit source]

QWhat are the requirements for the game to be played on a computer? Surely the developers stated them somewhere... but I couldn't find them.-5ub7ank(7alk) 18:04, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

A The Sims 2 UK - The Sims 3 Minimum System Requirements It's an image. If someone would write it out that would be very helpful. (The link is in the article under external links right now). --a_morris (talk) 20:43, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

No Aliens?[edit source]

I find it hard to believe that there will be no aliens in the game, there should be. counting the fact that you can go out in space as an astronaut, then shouldn't aliens be like ... a friend brought home from work or something? like they do in "The Sims 2".

Aliens should Be Included. Because it's fun to have aliens in the game. i my self am a huge fan of the sims alien section. although they don't seem to have many new options for the aliens in the sims 2 packs.

Xiaou 12:10, 3 April 2009 (UTC)Xiaou

according to Suuny, there will be aliens in the game. check out Jacob11693p 15:35, 3 April 2009

Another Little Question.[edit source]

will there be stuff packs and expansion packs?.

Xiaou 12:11, 3 April 2009 (UTC)Xiaou

It is already confirmed that there will be expansion packs. --a_morris (talk) 13:42, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Cars[edit source]

Does anyone know if a driveway has to be built in the same way as the sims 2? I remember seeing on one of the creator camp profiles that there was a house in the woods where the car was parked on regular ground.

It can be placed anywhere (don't need to connect it to street and other Driveway), is much smaller (no space for Sim walking) and has no floor tile.

Length of Pregnancy[edit source]

TALK - 14:09, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
There looks to be the beginning of an edit war about the length of pregnancy in The Sims 3. If something is confirmed, don't just say it is confirmed. Please try to provide some kind of reference. A link to a web site or video, the name and issue of a magazine, the event at which it was announced by EA, etc.
I put a note of "citatio needed" there.
Ilovefoxes 02:12, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

In sims 3, pregnancy is still three days, starting ri9ght after the try for a baby conception. The mothers spin into pregnancy the next day, and gradually grow, until they begin labor the next day. EX: Two sims-male and female- have try for a baby on Monday. The next day-Tuesday- at the same time of conception the female spins into her pregnancy clothes and grows a very very tiny bump-ie dont try to look for it.

The female continues to gradually grow until the same time of conception on Wednesday, when she goes into labor, her water breaks, and contractions start. You can either have a home or hospital birth. Each takes at least two hours, and that is the complete full pregnancy.

TALK - 16:34, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I wonder if the confusion about how long a pregnancy lasts was caused by playing at different lifespans. Is pregnancy always 3 days even if you are not playing on Normal lifespan?

Bella Goth[edit source]

I heard a rumor that if you do not play the game at all, the strylne will contnue just as it did in the Sims and the Sims 2. If this is true, what will happen to Bella Goth? There are no aliens in the game, so she cannot be abducted...--Bella Goth 20:34, 19 May 2009 (UTC)Bella Goth

it could be something to do with don

No, it just means that the game continues to prgress. Sims willl die, marry, spawn, and have careers. If you don't play a certain family, they will still progress, unless you make a new gmaefile, then the neighborhood would reset for your new file.

Neighborhood[edit source]

Is create a naberhood still available? Sorry I'm cut off from spill check Chaos Shepherd 18:39, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

good news[edit source]

For those who tough that a GMA 965 Chipset will not run the game it false it run very well (that the graphic card ive got) C001

Corrections for a couple of inaccuracies on the main page[edit source]

1) Sims 3 was NOT developed by EA Black Box. It was developed in the EA Redwood Shores studio by EA itself (under the EA Play label). 2) The engine used is not Renderware - it is a proprietary engine developed specifically for The Sims 3.

First is confirmed, second confirmed as well, added cites. Revrant

Wii Version[edit source]

I have the console versions of the first three and on the Sims 3 for the Wii, are pregnacies, aging, and that kind of stuff finally added in?

will the sims 3 work on hp dv6000?

The Sims 3 Blogs[edit source]

The reference links to the blogs lead to dead-ends. Can anyone verify if they are gone completely or update them if their new url? --a_morris (talk) 22:12, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Recovered Neighborhood sections[edit source]

The sections on the neighborhood were removed on May 31, 2009. I have recovered them but they need to be checked for accuracy. --a_morris (talk) 15:20, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

PS3[edit source]

I added it into the section because it is coming out.FRANKLIN 3000

GameSpot Posted Mar 5, 2008: the franchise would eventually arrive on the Wii and PlayStation 3 consoles. Title and date unconfirmed. Possible product page no description and high price. The Sims 3 PS3 petition --a_morris (talk) 05:06, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Yet-to-be-released platforms should not be included in the infobox as it gives the wrong impression. A mention, with references!!!, can be included in the body of the article. --a_morris (talk) 16:49, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Playing Sims3: Can you play with other families?[edit source]

I recently recieved Sims3 and I was very excited to play it. I created a family and I am now playing with them. Everytime I start playing the game it only gives me a selection of that specific family to play with. Can you not play with other families? If yes, why can't I?

First of all, do you know how to go to "Edit Town" mode? - JEA13 [iTalk] 19:47, December 28, 2009 (UTC)

Sims 3 Based How Many Years Before Sims 2?[edit source]

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

Sims 3 is supposed to be how many years before Sims 2? It used to have it on this page, I just can't find it.

I would say at least fifty years, since Mortimer Goth is a child and in Sims 2 he's an elder. Riverview doesn't make sense, though. Betty and Bob Newbie are teens and Skip Broke is a child...... I is Tdi! Don't Call My Name I isn't Alejandro 04:35, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Bleeh My daddy is the richest man in all of Belladonna Cove!

So then The Sims is 25 years before The Sims 3' I guess...

I think the sequence is supposed to be The Sims 3, (~25 years), The Sims, (~25 years), The Sims 2. Dharden 13:47, February 5, 2010 (UTC)
Wait a second... Each game is set to be 25 years so The Sims would be set 25 years before The Sims 2 and The Sims 3 50 years before. DavidMC123
Oops, that's what I meant Dharden :). Bleeh (talk) 23:17, April 29, 2010 (UTC)
