Playing My Sims 3!

Message reputation : 100% (1 vote)
Well, figured it's time to give it a go in my Sims 3.  Wasn't too bad, at least I figured out how to work the change of outfits.   giggle  But after I bought my Sims some new clothes and got her a career, my gurl had a birthday and got Old!  hilarious   What the heck!   I gotta figure out how to turn off the aging or up the aging process.

Won't be so bad after I learn all my options.

You turn the aging and story progression off in the game options panel. I have to play with the aging off and the story progression off or all my sims will get old and die on me or move away to a different hood before I do anything for them!  rolllol

Oakie Doakie.  Thanks, and I will go try that.  I didn't do anything to my Story progression.  I will check that.

Hi hun, here are a few screenshots showing how to turn on/off the aging and adjust it and how to turn off the story progression. Turning off story progression will prevent the town's sims from getting married, pregnant, get a job/quit their job, and moving out of the hood never to be seen again.


In your sims lot, on the left panel select options

Select the Game Options tab and uncheck the Enable aging box

You can adjust their lifespan but you have to check enable aging first to change the sliders

Once you have adjusted their lifespan to what you want, uncheck Enable Aging as shown

To turn off Story Progression, select the Advanced Demographic Options and uncheck Enable Story Progression

Thanks hun!  It worked.  Only thing, on the last one, I don't see the Vamps, Fairies, Warewolves, etc.   I just have (1) selection.

once you know how everything works BB
you will like it  coffeeread

I only played the game once    shamefully!..
I did not like it as much as sims2 playing
that is why I am always only on the sims3 for decorating
I have built many beautiful things there
that is the best I think at sims3
you can change the colors the way you want
you can color the ceiling
you have a good overview
and the movement system is great
also it also looks very realistic. at least I think so 
only the simmies are very ugly
you really have to edit it ... otherwise it's not fun

You are so right Poppy!  I played my Sims 3 family about 4 hours the other day, and I was able to figure out how to remodel their house...  giggle extrahappy   Something I most "always" finding myself doing.  It was hard at first, but after playing around with it, I was able to expand the downstairs 1/2 bath and install a shower.  I also added an extra room upstairs and remodeled it to my liking.   So it's not to bad at all.

You are correct in saying the Simmies are lacking beauty features.  They look to much like something out of a cartoon.   goofigirl

hi BB .. lilrose

I'm glad you can play nicely with the sims3 game
and yes you are right!
when I saw the game for the first time
I thought
ohh no .. I'm not going to like this
because I was so used to sims2
but after a while of inventing how everything worked
I was immediately happy with the game
and that's going to happen to you too .. lol

I would love to see your first home with your Sims family when you're done
it will certainly look fantastic

if you are looking for an object that can no longer be found on the internet
then maybe I have it somewhere in a folder for you

huggsss ... lips  and have a lot fun on your game BB

Thanks sweetie, I'll keep that in mind.  Right now I'm still learning how to get around.   This my remake of my Andrews home.

Check out my Spoiler for more pics!  confetti

so  wowspring !!!!! .. you are already far BB 
and you learn so quickly
and what a beautiful house you have built for your family  iluvit  tnx4sharing

when I started building my first house, I believe that lasts 3 days  whacky
because I had to learn everything and get used to the game

you do it SUPER supeRRRRrrrr .. BB  thumbsup thumbsup clapping clapping cheers cheers

BB, maybe it's a nice idea for you
if you are all done with your house and family later on
and are used to the game
then you can also upload this family with your house
so that other simmies can download your house
it is a very simple step to do
although I have only done it once  Shocked

Thanks Babe!  You are such a sweetheart.  I appreciate all of you supportive comments.

I'll check with Cinda to see if that's possible.  I guess I could've made a video on how I did it.   Not sure if there are any restrictions like the Sims 2 has.   thumbsup
