Is that a butterfly button? (Top left next to the money.) Wonder what that does. My guess would be its for collectables, but it's still an odd icon.

It's not a horrible interface, though. It's well sectioned off. Family stuff in the top left, Sim stuff in the bottom left. Time control in the bottom middle, mode changes on the bottom right and messages in the top right. Looks like there's an achievement icon there, too.

The Sims is kinda like Animal Crossing in a number of ways. Very few visual upgrades despite numerous iterations. These games and Zoo/Rollercoaster Tycoon are pretty much the only ones my wife likes.

The UI in all Sims games has been atrocious, so I wouldn't be surprised.

Wonder what the hook for this game is, I'll wait for a translation on the stuff in the OP which I would imagine talks about it.

The Sims 3 sorta ran like complete ass with the way everything was integrated. And what really killed the game for me was how ungodly long it took to start up and load.

The reason the graphics don't improve much is because they want it to be able to be played on as many computers as possible.

Personally, with a game like this, I think they should do an OnLive style streaming thing.

The people buying The Sims don't give a damn about no graphics & requiring lower specs means that they can sell the game to more people.

Here we go again, make a new game that looks little better than the previous game and then re-release the same expansions.

I like how the characters seem to look a little more cartoony this time around, similar to The Sims 2. Other than that, well, it doesn't look very good.

I don't care if it doesn't look significantly different. I just want the performance to be better. :/ The Sims 3 runs like ass even on modern high end PCs.

SimCity gives me hope in that regard.

I fucking love the Sims.

I still remember back in '96, my dad took my brother and I to a refurbished computer store and got a Packard Bell Windows 3.11 for Workgroups computer (my first gaming system lol). I remember also Christmas 2000 when my dad got my brother and I a Compaq Presario laptop that had an AMD K6 processor and 2GB of hard drive space. We had to install and uninstall games we wanted to play, the Sims, Roller Coaster Tycoon, expansion packs (not "stuff packs" EXPANSION PACKS). Some of my best gaming memories came from those old PCs. Oh you wouldn't believe the fun my friends and I had after finding out you could have the Sims gay/lesbian marry each other, using the "rosebud" code to get infinite money, using the "hand tool" to move the bed out of the way to see the Sims having sex...

As for the Sims series, nowadays, after watching what it became after Sims 2, they can stuff those stuff packs in their...Same with Sim City after 4. EA made fantastic PC games back in the early 2000's, what have they done to my favorite series? :-(

I think it looks perfect. You have to think about the target audience, which has low end hardware. More important will be the quality of animation.

Sims 3's performance problems are more due to inefficient programming with the stuff you can't see, I think. Things go from bad to worse as you pile on the expansion packs and all the associated new shiny objects.
