Default Patch 1.29
http://www.thesims3.com/community/n...011#-1359649085

Several updates but these 2 made me laugh

When using the Fire Pit, Sims can no longer roast and eat horse fertilizer .
Toddlers can no longer get fleas.

C2 is this patch just for players with Pets or for everyone? I'd rather not get another patch so soon after doing a clean install on my game.

A new update? Where did this come from?! Interesting. I wonder if this will change the way your game views CC.

Sounds like a bork someone would make up.

Also, I don't see a single update that fixes the fur issue some have been having, where their pets do not display their fluffiness. . . or did I just miss it?

This one made me snort:

Your Sim can no longer offer to breed or stud other Sims’ horses .

edit: note, it's your SIM not your Sim's horse...

thank god now if they only could make the reputations work.

EDIT :•An issue that caused Sims to go invisible when traveling to a Vacation world has been fixed .
I hate them they should have fi all of WAs issues long ago at least they are fixing them at all...

Looks like it's everyone from looking at the updates.

Personally I won't be updating until I see the overall response from the rest of the community and twallan has updated his mods. He's going away for the holiday in a couple of days so hopefully he will have time to change whatever has been affected. If not, we wait til after the new year. Which is ok cuz I'll be away til then too!

I am happy to see also that they removed the bug where the foals were born with those funky looking markings all the time and that horses can be led thru gates now!

I am waiting to see if my mods need updating/ are updated before I install the mod. I must admit I didn't expect to get a patch until the next EP came out, I have become so cynical of EA.

The store has a premium category named 'magic'
This is what TS3 magic is going to be. One item released every 3 months or so.
The cauldron is the 2nd item. No magic EP this time.

Well it took 'em long enough to fix the dented baby head problem that's been there since the release of the base game.

No mention of the bug in Generations with teens going to the prom with a family member and becoming their love interest? Well maybe next year.

Good job EA

#26 Old 14th Dec 2011 at 10:19 PM
You know, I never even noticed dented baby heads. This makes me want to play my non-patched game and see if I can recreate half of this list. Especially the horse-poop eating. I have to have a shot of that before patching up.

I could have sworn the dented babies were only around since Late Night or so.

Wait! I actually like this! Is this to compliment the magic cauldron that is coming to the store? I can see a new community lot coming into view.

Just like EA, add the don't want parts with something kind of cool.

It appears EA is getting ready to release an Alien world from the looks of the latest poll. So perhaps its a little teaser.

Those 50 simpoints should really have been 50 simoleons. Hope they at least added a separate collection folder for that sort of objects. The lists are cluttered as they are, no need to add the whole store to them too.

Well, here's confirmation of trippy new trees. The brillo pad terrain paint is there too.
http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/...reenshot59s.jpg

I couldn't find the bed in that screenshot or any other store stuff in the catalog so far, but I did find a file called "Featured Items" with images of four items in the store, one them the bed, in the Sims 3 folder in My Documents, these items are in there somewhere.




EDIT - I tried enabling Shop Mode under options, and got the store crap to show up in the catalog.




So there's some good news; the stuff only shows up with Shop Mode enabled. Probably still boating up the game, but at least it's invisible if we want it to be.

#47 Old 14th Dec 2011 at 11:26 PM
The bed comes from the Imperial Bedroom Zen set.

Hmm, now the baby swing is on sale? This is a load of mularky! Not only will there be more bloatness in my Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 files, but will they also be streaming this mess through Origins thus having to keep the game on the internet?

Okay, I just seen the new image with the "shop mode". So it only shows if shop mode is on?
