We just looked at it for about an hour. There is a lot of things I want. When you download a sim, do you get the clothes with it too?

I never downloaded a sim from them, mostly just build mode objects and clothes, but I would look in the write up the up loader gives for the sim and see what it says it includes

also there are some pretty good video tutorials over at thesimssupply for houses and such, as well as a more limited selection of objects

By the way, for those having issues with the game crashing/closing; one thing. Disable DEP. It solves it 90% of the time. Forcing v-sync is also a very good idea. Remember what the Starcraft II menus were doing to video cards? This game was doing it first.

I have next to no crashes with the game. Other bugs are another matter, but I've personally never had any groundbreaking ones.

Well... I will be linking to the store, but these are my favorites and recommended ones so far as hair and clothing go. You do get (or should) get some free starter points with the game ($10 worth) if you have any of that. Register an account and your serial number(s) on the official the Sims 3 site, and it should award you the points from any titles (only the base game and some earlier expansion packs gave the free sim points) that offer them.

Some of my favorites are Just Divine (my absolute favorite), The Blake, and Viva Voluminous (it's a little over the top, but nice) for hair. For clothing, there's The Stormer and Tiered Skirt.

For some of my content, here's my Sim, and here's a house. The house has absolutely no custom content, and no expansion pack or stuff pack content, so it's good to go for anyone. My sim has some content from the stuff packs and/or expansion packs (only affects her alternate attire), and one other thing, her hair, from the store, but that's it.

If you really want; I'll buy a piece of hair or something from the store as long as it's 100 points or less. I have some spare points kicking around. You'll have to send me your EA account name though, so I can gift it to you.

The store stuff isn't cheap, but when you look at prices for stuff packs, well... if you're someone who really likes the game and wants to add more content to it, it can be worth it, especially if you grab some of the deals. If not, there's plenty of free user created content out there, some arguably better than the EA stuff.

Here's a picture of my Sim, as well as two others, showing some of the stuff I linked to, and what it looks like in-game. EA's pictures are bad for giving an idea of how stuff will look in-game.







On a side note, perhaps a staff member can split The Sims 3 discussion going on into a topic in the PC games forum, unless the OP or none of them feel it is too out of place here. I suppose it's more useful than the "in before xxxxx" posts...

Yeah, I just now saw it,. It's South of Columbus. I'm in Northeast Ohio, a bit Northeast of Cleveland, so not exactly in the area, but it's still Ohio.

A lot of CC is fine, but do take moderation and care with it. The game be finicky by itself, and CC has a reputation/possibility of making it worse (as well as bogging the game down for some), so keep it it light and test it not by loading it up with hundreds of things at once, for if something causes a problem, you won't know what it is.

When you download a sim, if they have custom clothing/hair that you do not have, then you do not get that content (unless it specifically also includes those things). The game will fill it in with something have which it assumes is closest, or something.

If you do a Google search for The Sims 3 Downloads, you'll get a lot of stuff, and many of the top/larger sites should come up near the top.

Princess, she won't be able to read your comment until tomorrow night, but thank you for taking the time you did to post that.

I registered the first game, and I remember it give me points, but we never registered the rest of the add-ons like Generations, World Adventures, Night Life, etc.

I told her to be carefull when she made the topic title, and to not put "girl" in the begining. I think that does not show in the active topic list on the top left of the home page.

I think your sim looks pretty cute. Let's see if I can get Patsy on here again. Last night was a little rare. I even had her talking a little to Scrappy in steam chat. She is into 1950's type stuff. Pin Up girls. Real old fashioned and traditional.

Ah, then my stuff/recommendations won't quite be the best for that. There is some stuff on the store she might find that goes well for that, though.

I think she might like your hair. She builds the most extravigant houses because she uses the cheat to get more money.

Edit: PCSarge, she can't build PC's. You are a rare breed
