The parenting thing sounds so cute
I'm glad to hear there are some things in Free Time that we don't already know everything about.

I. AM. SO. JEALOUS. OMG.

i guess it just came out earlier in Australia then here... i talked to the electronics guy at work tonight and he said we hadn't even gotten our shipment in. i wonder if they were supposed to put it out or if they just did... :D

do you think that you could take pictures of the toddler clothes? like a print screen? and maybe a close up of the toddler activity table? thanks!

Oh, have you had any chance to experiment with the secondary aspiration thing? How do you go about getting a second, and how does it work? Are the wants simply a mix of ones from the old two, are there entirely new wants, what?

Are there any new weights or anything for the fitness hobby, asides from the exercycle? =D


Sorry, only the exercyle

Less chat more pics! Go start a thread in the pics forum and spam it up. Well...post 4 pics, and we'll spam to give you room for more pics!

Those are the pictures from Pets, are there any other pictures besides that?

BUT ANYWAYS! I'm STILL Excited! I Want mine now!

Awesome seeing the screenshots of the genie and all the info. Thanks.

Wow, this is just amazing as hell!!! I think this is bound to be the best EP in my opinion! I am just floored with all these new options! Parenting skill is just awesome, that way if I decide not to use the Insimenator, I can still know the baby's lowest need to fill! Though, if you think about it, this feature is something that should have been included in the base game.

I speak English primarily. Hablo español. Falo muito português.

OK, a few pics of the cloyhes and the drawing table. I thought you were supposed to be able to put the kids drawings up on the fridge or something but when an adult interacts with the table all they're able to do is scrap the drawings or clean up. I tried cleaning up, hoping the pics would go into her inventory, but no luck
#38 Old 25th Feb 2008 at 6:57 AM
Wow, thanks for posting all of that. Did you try going into your Sims inventory yourself and picking up the picture from the table?

To get the secondary aspiration you have to experience events (such as having a child and getting married) to get Lifetime Aspiration points then go to the rewards panel and choose to spend those points on benefits, much the same as the OFB benefits when your business goes up a level.

The start up music is pretty funky, but since I've only started the game once so far I couldn't say if it was the same as from the preview, but most likely it is

SCORE! I bet it is, I just checked out of my own curiosity and the music for the Season's preview is the same as the start up music for Seasons (seasons is my latest EP).

I am officially a happy camper. Thanks for taking the time to answer all of our questions!

Did you use moveObjects to pick up the drawings? Either way this all looks great. And I'm so glad you're sharing with us! Thank you once again FrootLoop! Are there any other aspiration rewards we should know about? What does the first one under Work say? Something about vactions?

Nope, I'm on the NSW/VIC border. We seem to have gotten the EP's a few days before their official dates the last few times now :D

Other things I noticed while playing for a few minutes...heaps of drop ins and phone calls (hoping someone will hack that), and you can read articles in the newspaper about your particular hobby once you've built up some enthusiasm.

Thanks heavenz, that's exactly what I had to do. Now I was able to put it on the wall, but not the fridge.

Also, here's a pic of the computer that gets left at your door. It's pretty cool.

Edit: I have no idea why the bottom picture looks like that. It's just supposed to be a pic of the kids drawing on the wall. I just used the in game camera so I must have clicked on a setting.

Well you could use moveObjects on and snapObjectstogrid false... but I think the fridge would be blocked, and then the sim will probably yell at you and stuff saying "SHOOFLEE!"
