I'd find a nice simple one and I'd start small, a few businesses, a few families and as time progressed I'd expand and expand until my small town had grown into a bustling city filled with the descendants of those first few families.

Why not have Sims in the law enforcement career cause problems for the criminal career and vice versa. Maybe a journalist can get a sim in a government or law enforcement career fired and blacklisted from the neighborhood. Also It would be nice to have gobs of info on the neighborhood on demand. Maybe have a "view neighborhood history" option in the menus.

I think that says enough.

When I thought about the seamless neighbourhood, I figured that finally, other Sims propose to you or fall in love with you without you really knowing their inentions. Or that you're invited out to the bistro and find a ring in your champagne. Other households throwing parties, inviting you to their wedding/birthday/funeral and not attending having serious social repercussions. As in reputation (people think you're emotionless when not calling your friend after that friend lost a husband, e.g.).
Also, moodlets need serious advancement. A 2 day long positive moodlet after getting married is simply not enough. And if your partner dies, especially when only being a young adult or an adult, every once in a while the Sim should be extremely down and depressed, if the Sim doesn't move on and find happyness otherwise.
There were just a lot of features so highly praised and hyped that expectations were running wild. Clever marketing wouldn't have allowed that and clever developers would have met the expectations.
I still remember that one early marketing trailer-type-movies where they talked about endless possibilities of stories and mentioned that young teenager sitting in front of the large window on the 2nd floor and the boy-teenager from across the street was watching her from his 2nd floor window, having a crush on her.
Sure, I can recreate that story (provided that not-controlled female teenager doesn't move into a household of 6 with her mother, leaving the father behind because he got 3 babies sent from heaven), but those stories aren't created by the game. What if I play that girl, and suddenly that boy I was just friends with confessed his love? That'd be really fun! (Especially the drama that follows.)

One of the things that really made me love Sims 2 and it's expansions was the respectable amount of deco items; plants, wall hangings and so on. Sims 3 lacks variation when it comes to decoration, and that's really a shame, because it is indeed a great game.
