Should i play the sims 3 or 4 first? I pirated both but is 4 more new comer friendly?
>>5590954234 is shit. Don't play it
dont listen to these retards, sims 4 is great.
>>559095423Sims 3 has story shit, worlds that are unique and can explore, and a bunch of fun bullshit with all the crazy shit added in the expansion packs. Literally endless amounts of stuff to do. Characters look more potatoey though, and it does take a good computer to deal with memory leaks. Same with long load times.You get an entire city to explore in real time, though, so it's worth that. So much shit you can do, mess with, and really be god of a tiny town/city. It's my personal favorite. Really good for doing crazy whacky gameplay shit.Now that's Sims 3 pros.For sims 4, there's a lot more body manipulation, sliders, etc. Good mods for making sexy hot sims, that you can also mod to fuck. It's really great for porn. Especially if you're into younger shit apparently because every sims 4 thread has people posting their lolis.Both have their advantages and cons though.
>>559095543>/v/ says a game is shit>it's actually kinoMany such cases.
>>559095423play 1 first
>>559095423Sims 2 has the most shit but has aged so-soSims 3 spends an eternity loading but has lots of good contentSims 4 is one step forward two steps back across the entire gameGo with 3 (or play a real game)
>>559095723this, Also what makes Sims 3 superior is CAS. Create a StyleLets you custom colour or texture literally anything in the game giving you complete customization. Sims 4 removed this for literally no reason other than to probably sell it back to us as an expansion pack for $80.
>>559095423sims 4 is like a bad SJW version of the sims 3. but if you want me to me say something nice about sims 4, It has the carnivore plant.
Sims 3 would be GOAT if only it didn't run like complete garbage which I think EA optimized it shittily on purpose because no one would buy Sims 4 which they bragged about how it fixes the performance (while removing all content so they can sell it again)
>>559097375this. so much this.
Where can I get the DLC for sims 4? I'm not paying $200 for all that shit.
>>559095423>new comer friendlyNigga what? It's the fucking sims, a game made for literal roasties and children. Just whatever one looks cooler Jesus.
>>559098143Sims 3 is an old game, and was optimised for 2-3 core cpus with high clock counts, which don’t exist. At 4 cores performance degrades.
>>559095723Is sims 4 actually good for coomer stuff? I thought it was 3 that had more content and 4’s only benefit was better grafixAsking for myself
>>5590954234 > coomer friendly3 > open game coomer medium, old animations2 > has the most coomer mods but you'll need to use custom models1 > why even
>>559098650faggot performance don't degrade.sim count and object count in the world increases it's size and that is what curbs performance.dead sims need to be purged, unowned cars must be deleted, non-played lot appliances must be turned off or else your pc will tank. that's why sims 3 + nraas mods is the best combo.i had a aurora skies world over 1GB tanking my performance until i installed nraas to curb a ton of dead sims.
brainlets will complain that 3s artstyle is unbearably bad. it's worse than 4's but it's by no means terrible, it grows on you.other than that 3 is better than 4 in almost every way
>>559098727The Sims 2 is way more limited than Sims 3/4 in terms of mods. At this point, 4 may have even overtaken 3.>1 > why evenhttps://youtube.com/watch?v=UCiqPqGFzN0
>>5590991133's pudding face is something so terrible that awesomemod is a fucking must.
>>559099125if you read the message again you'll see that you are talking stupid.
>>559098681Both are good for lewd stuff. Obviously 4 has more appealing models, and 4's WW has over a thousand animations. As a lewd game though, it's mostly doll-house style where things happen when you want them and how you want them, without much/any barrier to it or connection to the game world. In that regard, you could call WW a glorified scene viewer.Sims 3's KW also has over a thousand animations, but they are played out by potato people. That's it's only real drawback. As a lewd game, KW has much more integration with game mechanics, such as stats with objectives you have to grind out to level them up, and by doing so more lewd things become possible. Traits like "masochist" can be gained organically after being raped too many times and being mindbroken into enjoying it. On top of the sex stuff, there's a lot of side mechanics like building a lot into a workable brothel or a kinky school, which KW supports. You can take up jobs like nude model, which you have to drive out to the photoshoots around the city, rather than just an unseen, offscreen rabbit hole like 4's. 3 is indeed a much better lewd mod, if you can tolerate its potato models. 4 is, again, like a dollhouse where you can set everything up how you want it, but it's hardly an actual "game."Pic related is from my first time playing 3 with KW. The emergent stuff like that is what really sold me on it.
>>559095830Not him, but how the fuck is 4 kino in any wayBesides the sex mods
Hardcore Sims 3 guy here. 4 is more new comer friendly but becomes boring as fuck once you realize traits do jack shit and every sim acts the same due to the emotion system.Play sims 3, install nrass mod, lookup and install custom worlds(potential for infinite gameplay). And you'll have yourself the best Sims game. Hopefully you have a decent PC with an SSD.
>>559100379The modding community for the Sims are so awful tho man.Everything is outdated websites, so many bitches think their mod deserves some patreon paywall. Need to make like 4 different forum accounts to different places, and files just missing or deleted.No guides on how anything works. Convoluted mess man.
>>559100229Why the fuck else would you even play The Sims?
>>559095423You can't play 3 properly without optimizing the shitout of it or skipping expansions. And if you need to ask this question you have no choice but to settle for 4.
Sims 4 isnt really more newcomer friendly than the others, its that most of the mechanics are more shallowIf you actually want to play the sims play 2 or 3, if you want to fap play 4. 4 has a slightly better build mode I guess
Okay so here's the lowdownThe quick rundown, if you willAssume all games mentioned have all expansions and other official content added, unless stated otherwise.The Sims 1 is fun, but nothing more than that. It's nice. The base game is barebones as shit, and the absence of the passage of time makes it go stale in no time flat. Magic will take over the game completely since it's so fun, useful, and easy to get into.The Sims 2 is great. If you want to play the sims like the fucking normie you are, having a family and dicking around until you're 10 generations deep, 2 is the way to go. FreeTime is a must, if only for allowing NPCs to grow up with your own sims so your childhood friends aren't kids forever.Sim 3 is... okay. It's okay. It's got better building tools than 2, but not the best. It's got better gameplay than 4, but not the best. I guess if you're just a mega sucker for that open world and happen to have a Crysis-capable supercomputer on your hands, it's cool to check out. Get that mod that optimizes the game, they never figured out how to themselves.Sims 4 is the best if you just want to be gay and build houses. It's got building QoL tools 2 could only fucking dream of. The gameplay itself is lacking. Many, many Sims 3 base game features are introduced in a paid DLC, or not there at all, meanwhile they keep adding shit like doing laundry by hand or knitting or being a fucking influencer.Get it either severely discounted or for free. It's barely worth the investment that way.
>sims thread>all replies don't talk about build mode, gameplay, aesthetics, progression>anons just drive-by post the game that makes their dick hard and dismiss the other 3 games + all the spinoffs
If you’re gonna play the game than sims 3. If you’re gonna mod it or coom than sims 4. Open world in 3 is poorly implemented anyways
>>559100790>or skipping expansionsHuh?
>>559100379>traits do jack shit and every sim acts the same due to the emotion system.fuck, as a Sims 3 player who recently gave Sims 4 a go I was wondering what was bugging me and it's exactly this. Also my entire town is wearing fucking paper bags on their heads for some fucking retarded reason and there's no way to make them stop. Guess I'm going back to Sims 3 then.
>>559101645>v plays sims for coomer stuff rather than playing barbie dollhouseHow unexpected
>>5590954234 if you care mostly about building and create a sim.3 if you want actual sim gameplay.Keep in mind 3 kinda runs and looks like like shit.
>>559100790being real here, though, the Sims is a case of "installing all the expansions and adding more shit =/= make it better". In every sims game, installing EVERY expansion results in this awful inbalanced mish-mash with no overarcing thought or design put in place. You have Pets right next to "70's Garage Stuff" right next to "Kay Perry's Sweet Treats" next to "Extra jobs that no-one plays"
>>559101645These last months I've been doing nothing but sims 2 build mode.I don't even have FT or like half of the stuff pakcs ( but who needs stuff packs outside M&G)
>>559100530You only need Nrass for sims 3. I've never went to a patreon site, I just install the stuff on the main sims 3 mod site.
>>559102237this. most sims 3 mods are shit anyway and the more shirts and hats you add just lengthens the loading times. i usually just go a handful of Nraas mods plus Higher Bills mod and Harder Moodlets mod, so the game actually has some challenge to it.
>>559095423Sims 1 no expansion packs had soul and dynamic randomness that they removed in the expansion packs. Was absolutely hilarious creating a group of 8 male default clones (blonde hair, glasses, they looked like the SS eugenics research division) and plonking them on an empty lot and watching their insane death spiral. At first they have nothing to do but socialise so they quickly build their relationships and all inevitably end up just passionately kissing each other all the time like its ram ranch. Eventually as their emotions tank though they start rejecting each other's kisses which absolutely tanks their relationship score. They are so depressed that eventually they just start mocking and insulting eachother. And then come the brawls. They just start fighting and beating the shit out of each other amidst crying and pissing and shidding their pants. Eventually they start to curl up and die and their aryan ghosts can haunt the next incarnation.Vanilla sims 1 would just do random shot like this whereas the expansion packs turned them into boring normies with braindead ai. Also the music is soulful.
>>5590954233 without a fucking doubt. Number one expansion would be Ambitions cause it adds more interactions with the world.
>>559102482Yeah I agree. I never play the extra jobs it adds but it adds a bunch of general shit to the world that the game needed. I go with>Ambitions>Generations>Seasons>University or Supernaturalusually.
>>559101645>mfw most people play sims wrong by just making a single dude living by himself and just banging women.It's more fun to use the Sims as a sitcom simulator and make at least 4 sims living together with all different traits and see what retarded shit they do.
>>559102975Actually this. One of the most fun things I ever did was remake my old college sharehouse 1:1, right down to all our traits, our clothes, the house etc. And then I called up the guys, streamed it and we just watched what the game did. It was funny but also fucking scary how accurately it simulated ourselves. Also the Asylum Challenge is always fun ie: making a 8-person house, everyone has the Insane trait and no-one's allowed to leave. Only have enough furniture for 3 people to sleep, sit, shit, etc at a time. Always ends in chaos.
Really a this point pets is only an expansion pack because it was in the sims 1. There's no excuse for it not to exist in any game after the first.
>>559103309sims 1 had mods that added pets anyway. I remember there were mods that added breedable cats, dogs and hamsters I think too. One house I made I ran a cat farm, bought a pair for $25 each and used to raise them, sell the babies for $34 each while also making Gnomes on the side.
>>559098727>2 > has the most coomer modsisn't it literally just one?
I would suffer to play 3 more if the art style doesn't suck.
>>559103164Reminds me when I sent my 4 male sims to college in the game>have them share a college dorm with 4 other sims I can't control>at night I send one of my prankster sims to the room that has like 3 females sleeping>have him light fireworks which fuck up and start a fire>have all my sims run away from the place while it burns and have them camp in some park>finally return to the dorm in the morning and find out one of the females burned to death
>>559102069> the Sims is a case of "installing all the expansions and adding more shit =/= make it better"yeah pretty much it, doesn't matter which, all just add some more junk for your sims to do animations in it to increase their numbers.>>559101740it's just like sims 2 but loads faster without. i guess they wanted sims 4 to be multiplayer but after simcity 5 they just decided "fuck it" but were too lazy to try something open world since sims 3 is a obvious case of "needing refinement"
>>559103717i dont get why people shit on 3's art or graphics so much. it's much prettier than 2 and 4 looks like zoomer dogshit.
4 is complete trash, they made probably 70% of every single sim look like they're gay pic related
>>559102237you need awesomemod to curb a couple of shit in it too.nraas doesn't fix the pudding faces while awesomemod does.>>559103646if you say it like that then ww is the only coomer mod for sims 4.there are many coomer mods for sims 2 doe, had more success with passion on sims 3.
what i liked is how the technology in the Sims 3 changed over the 8 something years they released expansions. >vanilla Sims 3, everyone has flip phones>by University, everyone has smart phones and can post on social media and even become Instagram famous
>>559103916well 4 has stuff like wicked perversions and basemental if degeneracy is a turn-onwhat sims 2 mods were you referring to other than the tits n arse one?
>>559103916where the fuck do I download awesome mod?
>>5591037982 looks better than 3 the sims are lower-poly but they don't look like potatos, and the lighting oozes SOUL whereas sims 3 just looks like second life with shitty flat soulless lighting and mismatched assets 4 is not only graphically better but also has an art style
Sims 3 > Sims 2 > Sims 1 > Sims 4Sims 2 is amazing but i really do like the open worldness of 3 and how alive the world feels Sims 4 is just compelete dogshit and i hate to use buzzwords but it feels so unimmersive. The artstyle is trash, and fuck the walk cycles seriously. I've seen so many men do that feminine walk down the street its so damn hard to get into.
>>559104038dontit's one of those autistically difficult mods with a fedora-tipping community that gatekeep super hard. if you cant figure out how to cure cancer and find the god particle to install it you'll get told to fuck off if you ask for any help from their dogshit community. this is why everyone uses Nraas. the only people that use Awesomemod do so because it adds options to be a pedo. >>559104114i dunno what's wrong but you might wanna check your computer. Sims 3 looks way better than 2 and 4 my guy. >4 has an artstyleyeah, the ugly low-poly pastel-color facebook game art style everyone hates. I dont have it on me right now but there are literal side-by-side comparisons showing how 4 has worse graphics than 3.
>>559095423with a decent pc, ssd and some mods + using reset sim cheat every once in a while, sims3 loading time is shorter than sims4's for me and it runs like a dream. It's really so much more fun to play, even though cas sucks compared to sims4. But the open world and story progression just makes everything so much more alive.
>>559103916>pudding facesOne thing I do is make like 1-2 really good looking male and female sims and use the "play with genetics" feature to quickly make alot of good looking sims and just fill the entire town with them
>>559104425seconding thisjust make sure to install a mod for custom Story Progression, cuz EA's story progression eventually turns the whole town into black people with blonde cornrows after 6 generations
The Sims 2 has a ridiculous amount of SOUL
>>559104548one thing I will give EA is I'm glad that they gave Sims 2 Ultimate away for free for many many years.
>>5591037983 looks nothing like 2, they tried to go more realistic and failed, and everyone has a chubby face for some reason.
>>559104659stop making cunts with chubby faces then. i've never seen or had any sims in 3 that had chubby faces. so it sounds like a "You" problem.
>>559100379>but becomes boring as fuck once you realize traits do jack shit and every sim acts the same due to the emotion systemThey made big improvements on this lately. First they overhauled a number of the traits so they do have a bit of an impact on the way sims behave and supposedly the newly added like/dislike system also changes sim behavior.Still, I do prefer Sims 3 to Sims 4. It's just better.
>>559104659>>559103916>chubby facesare you guys installing the US version by mistake?
>sims 4 >advertised as being smarter>sim wakes up, complains about being hungry(no shit?)>sim kicks trash in anger then complains about the trash being messy on the ground>sim eats food then places the dirty plate BEHIND the fucking microwaveJesus fuck I bet the reason why there are no ladders and footballs and shit is because it fucks with the useless multitasking feature,
makes you wish someone would do the sims what city skylines did to simcity
>>559104659Late Night fixes the faces, every townie looks decent in that expansion and all the new generated ones.
>>559102091Why Sims 2 build mode, anon? The game's great but it easily has one of the worst building options out of the series
>>559104829i still cant get over the retarded community voting shit in the Sims 4 that results in everyone having a fucking bag over their head. I just wanna play the game, I dont wanna have to fucking waste time trying to befriend and convince the whole town to vote to repeal a fucking town hall decision. if I wanted to do that I'd play Postal 2.
>>559104308>the ugly low-poly pastel-color facebook game art stylethat's still better than ugly sims 3 shit>you might wanna check your computeryou might wanna check yours, you're probably some brainlet running it in 800x600 minimum settings because you ddn't fix your shitsims 2 has SOUL and consistent art, sims 3 has ugly pudding face and fullbright lighting with ugly textures
>>559095423Your choice of 2 or 3 depending on personal taste. 4 is shit, 1 was a prototype.
>>559104747>so it sounds like a "You" problem.No, it's a well known problem with the game. Randomly generated sims apparently all use the exact same face preset which is the infamous "potato face". You have to install mods to prevent this otherwise it's inevitable that your town will be predominantly inhabited by lots of sims with the same round chubby face.
>>559104928You can turn that off entirely if you want to avoid that dumb shit. Eco whatever was a great pack but the community vote was a mistake.
>>5590954233 is great but it runs like shit.
>>559104829>I bet the reason why there are no ladders and footballsBoth of these are in Sims 4
>>559104038fucking google it?moreawesomethanyou(.)com/smf/index.php/topic,15185.0.htmlthen you can use the config file that comes with it or config it in a website:moreawesomethanyou(.)com/ts3/awesome/config.php>>559104308if you dislike pescado because he is a faggot, that is your problem. i don't give a flying fuck about that faggot so he doesn't live rent free.nraas + awesomemod work perfectly, you just need to disable the awesomemod shit that will conflict with nraas.
>>559104891Late Night had everything in it to be a god-like expansion but was executed poorly. >just existing makes you a celebrity>being a celebrity means your pathing and tasks are constantly interrupted by random shit>the city is fucking awful>apartments were a cool idea, but are shit>vampires were overpowered and would spread too rapidly>no-one goes to bars>lag issues with the city>pathing issues with the city (sim will take the train 3 stops then a taxi when they couldve just walked 1 block)but the band stuff was pretty cool.
>>559095423as someone who enjoys 4 more, it is pretty interesting how even after tons of expansions, 4 still feels pretty barebones in terms of gameplay
>>559104902I would buy a Sims 2 remake with Sims 4 building and cas.
>>559104815nah, it's the most mod-friendly one.a soul for a soul, nigger.
>>559105213i'm sure many niggers would, that's why EA doesn't do it.
Sims 2 has the most content and job opportunities (you can get a fucking helicopter in that game)Although 3 is superior because open world beats loading screens no matter what
>>559105124That's because they're all mostly self contained and none fix the core issue that the game itself has little gameplay, everything is just for show.
>>559105124Because EA is fucking lazy, they so lazy that they made teens the same height as adults.
3 is a fucking terribly optimized game
>>559105114>>just existing makes you a celebrityThat's not true. Becoming a celebrity requires to either befriend an already existing celebrity by impressing them with wealth, skill level, etc. or by reaching the top of the film or music career. That's it. You won't become a celebrity unless you specifically chose to.>>no-one goes to barsYou're supposed to read the newspaper to find out what is going to be the "hot spot" of the day.
>>559105124i guess they keep adding stuff that can be advertised instead of fixing their shit>impossible to run a restaurant because the AI is a mess>but check out that new career in our new dlc!
Sims 3 is the comfiest once you find that perfect custom world.
>>559105415>job opportunitiesIn Sims 3 I like to make up my own jobs with the items like:>a band>a professional gambler>use that fix a car addon, to make a group of mechanic sims>use that gun mod to make a hitman sim that hunts down immigrants
>>559095423it doesn't matter anon they're both games for women
>>559105717> Sims <insert number> is the comfiest once you find that perfect custom world.>>559105551sims 4 is peak lazy.each new expansion is trodding the same paths they did before and even sims 4 base was copy/pasted shit.if you pay attention many animations are ported from sims 2 and 3 but just sped up, some have curbed animation stages but still fast af so the sim doesn't get stuck on animation.>>559106185that is what a woman would say.
All of the games are fucking garbage. Some of the animations are hot, but ultimately the underpinning is the fucking sims, so there's no real content. You would have a lot more fun imagining scenarios in your head, because you can do a lot more with them. In the sims, you're massively limited to the overly simplistic engine.While Skyrim at least offers some level of emergent gameplay through overlapping simplistic systems, The Sims is all set in stone. Sure, you can fuck some dude's wife in front of him, but all he's going to do is sit down and cry for 2 seconds. You can make a harem, but you're still going to have to toilet train them all.
>>559106564Oh no, I have been owned by a grown man who plays with a virtual dollhouse. How will I ever recover?
5+? How many? 6? 7?
>>559106469Honestly, a lot of the games really are limited and aren't aging well. Rimworld and RDR2 both do a better job at life simulation and RDR2 isn't even a life simulator. Rimworld in particular does it the best with every thing, all your colonists have so much depth that its like seeing an actual human life on screen. The only issue is you do not directly control your colonists.I think if someone made a good life simulator which had that much depth and allowed you to do pretty much anything, just like in real life, everyone would be happy. You should be able to rob other sims, go to an actual office for work or arrest someone as police, sell drugs, go to a school and form a clique I mean why the fuck didn't EA think of this? because they're EA.We will never get the perfect life simulator, its all gonna be marred by limited gameplay by a company that doesn't care or SJW bullshit
>>559107894>I mean why the fuck didn't EA think of this?I think they did and immediately dismissed it as stupid. I think you forgot The Sims is based in satire, not cynicism, and they'd like to avoid getting an AO rating from the ESRB.
>>559107894Games struggle to offer sensible AI scripting for basic events, which is why you get shit like NPCs randomly screaming their heads off over nothing.An actual life sim won't be made until we have actual AGI, which will create full immersion thanks to digital actors. It'll also invalidate the entire gaming industry overnight, because why would you play any game with dumb AI when you can play a clone of that game except every character behaves like you would expect a real person to behave, and you can do anything you want?
>>559107894> You should be able to rob other sims, go to an actual office for work or arrest someone as police, sell drugs, go to a school and form a cliqueKenshi has a lot of that. I've been playing the shit out of it. Fucking bandits man.
I have a top of the line PC, pretty much as good as you an get, and Sims 3 still runs and loads like shit. I'm talking 10+ minutes loading into the game, a century to load all parts/clothes/etc.. and constant in game stutter. It's just not playable with all expansions and mods, no matter how much you optimize, no matter the hacks, tweaks, or modifications, it simply will never run well. It's actually a game though, unlike the dollhouse that is 4. 4 literally has no gameplay, it's basically just a facebook "game" that's only decent for porn or building lots.
>>559095423Play 1 and 2.
>>559109251Do you have an SSD?
>>559109251>Sims 3 still runs and loads like shit. I'm talking 10+ minutes loading into the game, a century to load all parts/clothes/etc..That's too long. With an SSD it should only take five minutes tops from launching the game to playing it with all expansions. You're either lying or something is very wrong with your hardware.>and constant in game stutterThat's a known bug to do with framerate. You have to cap at 60fps otherwise the game constantly stutters.Plenty of people are still playing Sims 3 to this do with no problems. I am. You guys claiming it's literally impossible to get running smoothly no matter what you do are just talking shit.
>>559109535I have expensive meme nvme SSDs, I only use HDDs for movies, and porn.
Holy fuck I never thought I'd hear "newcomer" and "sims" in the same sentence And games have no difficulty why does it have to be newcomer friendly?
>>559109617Do you have ALL expansions, ALL store items, AND a shitload of mods? The game can be ran fine if you play with 2, 3 expansions and a couple of stuff. The full experience however is impossible. Both 2 an 4 run buttery smooth no matter how many mods and store items you have on your full expansion installation.
3 still has the best lewd mods.In 4 they just talk during the whole thing, off putting.
>>559109812>Both 2 an 4 run buttery smooth no they don't, they stutter and chug as well, just not as bad as 3 even 1 chugs when you have a busy house
>>5591099093 is too much work to make an even remotely attractive sim, and it doesn't have as much customization.
>>559109982Your hardware is not up to snuff then (alright 2 can chug a bit, but nothing can make 4 chug for me). I can even get the piece of unstable shit that is oldrim to run smoothly with 4k textures, VR mod, ENB, and a mod folder that's almost 200 GBs with a shitload of hacks, because of the fucking plugin limit. Sims 3 was just made by retards.
>>559109812>Do you have ALL expansionsyes>AND a shitload of modsyes>ALL store itemsDo I look like a fucking idiot to you? That's an enormous number of things and the only way you could have all that is your dumb ass decided to pirate literally tens of thousands of dollars worth of useless crap.>The game can be ran fine if you play with 2, 3 expansions and a couple of stuff. No. This is just wrong. You can run it fine with ALL expansions and a heap of additional content and mods. But if you shit it up with thousands of individual DLC items without even so much as merging that shit then yeah, it's going to run like crap. ANY game would run like crap when shitted up that much.>Both 2 an 4 run buttery smooth no matter how many mods and store items you have on your full expansion installation.No. Shit them up with the astronomical amount of stuff as you shitted up Sims 3 with and they'll run like shit too.
>>559110265they ALL chug faggot, just because you can go onto an empty lot on a fresh save and scroll around doesn't mean shitactually play the game and you'll realise all of them chug, S2 has bad framepacing (you're probably too blind to notice) and S4 dips to the 30s when it's snowing on a busy lot
i like sims 3 a lot.
>>559104519So its realistic then
With sims 3 the more you play the more it drags ass. Memory leaks.
>>559109617>>559109812i have a fucking hdd and it takes 3mins tops to load.because my nraas isn't set to let over 3billion sims on my worlds, 300 tops...>>559110489there is a store items mod you can use without needing to pay... no pirate shit needed, just donwload the .package files and that's it.
>>559095830My biggest complaint with 4 was it felt like nothing ever stuck. Your sim would get inconsolably depressed because a loved one died, and then flirty like 3 minutes later. It also felt like nothing bad could ever happen, even moreso than 3.
>>559111312There's a mod that sorts this by deleting cars iirc
>>559111312>Memory leaks.I wish gamers would stop attempting to use technical terms when they don't know what the fuck they're talking about.Does Sims 3 accumulate population data intentionally and the more of that that is accumulated the chuggier the game can get? Yes.Is that a memory leak? No. Not at all.Is this problem something you're likely to actually experience yourself? No. Not unless you intend on playing a save for several dozen generations.
How many women are ITT? Please dont reply if you are fat. I am so lonely ;(
>>559111383>Your sim would get inconsolably depressed because a loved one died, and then flirty like 3 minutes later.To be fair, no matter what happened in Sims 3 my sims were pretty much always super happy too. Same problem as with Sims 4, it's too easy to override the negative moodlets with positive ones. Sims 2 did actually have mood management be a bit tricky at first but the expansions added shit that made it trivial to keep mood up in that game too.
>>559102612really need to pirate that shit just so i can get modes, got the base game and thats as far as i went. any good mod balls with everything expansion floating around you can recommend? if im gonna cause my comp to load forever might as well go hard.
>>559112430thefuck?aside from the island worlds which were rushed AF and have tons of routing issues there's no problem playing with the expansions installed piratey way. routing fuck ups do happen on the vanilla worlds and you can use mods to fix that, but it's not important if you don't have that much sims on your world.just google for "sims3 world route fix mod" and check the modthesims links.
>>559112094True, I definitely liked 2 the best. 3 and 4 have their own pros and cons, on one hand I feel like 4 was a tad worse about everything feeling like nothing negative could ever happen than 3, but on the other hand you can make Sims that don't all have that retarded doughy sameface that plagued 3. The open world in 3 was cool and all, but a lot of people that complain about the loading screens in 4 forget that 3 was a buggy mess held together by a spaghetti string.
>>559111703>intend on playing a save for several dozen generations.Yes, this was me
Do you micromanage your sims, or let them go about their own business?
>ctrl+f atf >0 results
>>559095423Most people here prefer KW for Sims 3 but I prefer Passion mod because it doesn't conflict with NRAAS and doesn't create more lag. I actually prefer playing long games with multi-generation families.
>>559113245atfmods had drama if i recall correctlygay shit level drama too.
>>559113443Wasn't it the twitter mob trying to shut them down and a few authors removing their mods out of fear?
The Sims 3 is the most complete game in the series, but The Sims 4 is the most honest.
>>559113076I prefer micromanaging, but I can't micromanage multiple sims at once so I just run one per household, I let pets manage themselves but I regularly check in on them and do some micromanaging if necessary
>>559113549as i've said> gay shit level drama
>>559108561issue with Kenshi is it requires a fucking uni degree to play it. Its one of those games where you need to spend a load of time into
Does anyone know a good slavery mod for The Sims 3? I know 4 has one but that game sucks. I want to do some buck breaking.
>>559113076When I used to play 2 as a kid, I would pick one and let the rest do their bidding. I haven't touch it since then but I have been meaning to return to the series and probably will micromanage the whole family to an extent.
>>559115225He's looking a bit tired and hungry anon. Better let him have some din dins and a nap nap to enjoy the fruits of his labour
>>559115225howdy.these are some fiiiine lookin bucks if i may say so myself.
>>559107894Paradox Tectonic is being led by the Rod Humble, producer manager of The Sims 2 and 3. He gave an interview a couple of years ago and it seems he's working on a competitor to The Sims. It sounded pretty good and gave me hope for a great life simulator.
3 is better for gameplay and intricate stories4 is better for graphics and animnationsIf you're the kind of guy who like immersive plot related lewds then get 3If you just open the game, fap, then close it get 4
>>559100379>emotion systemIt is a fucking tragedy how mishandled that shit is, not only does it make all the sims the same, but it also resulted in a fuckton of bloat in the interactions menu because every damn action needs to have variants that induce/manipulate emotions even though the whole idea of them were to streamline so we wouldn't need to have variations (IE just have Kiss and then get a shy kiss if the sim is feeling shy, a confident kiss if the sim is confident and total make out session if the sim is horny, all from the same command).Not to mention how many years it took for "Scared" to be added as a emotion and even then it is still underdeveloped.
>>559115225Do a Sims 3 story thread anon.
>>559116990not that newfagfuck you faggot, i want to see /lit/fag wannabes.
I have both 3 and 4 installed.4 is so shallow it's unbelievable. It's a worse game in every single way except for coom mods.The character generation in 4 is so shitty almost everyone looks the same apart from superficial shit like skin and beards. You can click the randomize a hundred times and you'll still keep getting the same exact shit.It all feels lifeless and dull compared to 3. Everything was downgraded, yet EA has the balls to charge a shitton of money for the same game, just worse.You can't even recolor shit the way you want it, either. Forget creating your own styles, that's out. You get a choice of 0-6 colors and for some objects and that's all.It's like they tried to remake the sims for people who don't play the sims. Shallow, ugly and worse yet, more quirky than it's engaging.It unironically feels like a mobile game in so many ways.
You could make sims with actual character in Sims 3.You can't in Sims 4. All you can make is ugly plastic barbies.
>>559095423sims 4 is arguably the best porn game on the market, otherwise its inferior to the other sims games
>>559118036>It's like they tried to remake the sims for people who don't play the simsYeah, just like they did with SimCity. If that game hadn't bombed as hard as it did The Sims 4 would have been dumbed down even more and full of social features and always online bullshit.I still can't fathom why people on here are looking forward to a Sims 5 announcement considering they'll definitely double down on that.
>>559118536it has some gamechanging QoL compared to the other installations however. it's one reason i can't bring myself to play more than 30min of sims3 without having to curb shit even with two cleanup mods but on sims 4 i can play no problems.and it seems sims 5 will be online.FUCKFUCKx2FUCKx3FUCKx4FUCKx5
>>559118419>sameface potato face that looks the same as every other sameface potato face in sims 3 are you trying to argue that looks better than what you can make in sims 4?
>>559118863Abso fucking lutely and you're mentally ill if you don't realize that this is just the truth.You can't make any kinds of characters with unique or interesting looks in Sims 4. Just bimbos and numales.
>>559119147your sims look garbage
>>559095423I keep uninstalling and reinstalling Sims 4. Fuck being a gamer
>>559121412So what, fag?At least they have personality. Something your dogshit sims 4 characters will never have.And that's precisely why you're not posting any.
>>559095423don't play any sims game besides 1 without any patchesmaxim can't code a stable engine if their life depended on it. save often in it. pray to god that it doesnt crash midsave, but know that eventually, it absolutely will, and all of your effort will be gone.unless you fucks know some secret cheat to making any sims game actually work for more than 30 minutes.
>>559095686It has some good features, but the lack of persistent world makes it boring fast and the UI is fucking atrocious and wants you to constantly traverse the entire fucking screen from one corner to the other to navigate between windows.
>>559100379Hopefully you have a Mac actually. Mac version got a update recently that supports 64bit and solves memory leaks. Fucking bullshit for us PC players.
>>559121958> 30 minutesanon, wtf? are you trying to run this shit on a celeron D???>sims 2 will corrupt itself because of null value tokens and your save will go tits>sims 3 will be too bloated because it keeps saving shit without cleanup>sims 4 same shit as sims 3IF your computer isn't some 30 year old crap then you can play for more than 30min with a vanilla game but expect the mentioned effects
>>559121958>pray to god that it doesnt crash midsave, but know that eventually, it absolutely willWhere are you getting this from? I have hundreds and hundreds of hours in each Sims game and I've never had any of them crash for any reason other than a broken mod. They don't make flawless games but they don't make crash happy ones either.
>>559121746>personality>a fucking potato
>>559121520oh when did they filter cum br4in?
>>559122196>Mac version got a update recently that supports 64bit and solves memory leaksWhy do you talk about things you don't understand? The Mac version doesn't change or fix anything. It's made to support 64 bit because Mac doesn't support 32 bit apps anymore. They didn't change anything else, you fucking retard.
>>559097748>for literally no reasonCreate a Style was (probably) removed from TS4 because of its shitty online engine not allowing it. They couldn't add it in even if they wanted to because they're all fucking brain dead.A modder added in color wheel changes for clothes but since it's spaghetti code, the file is upwards of 50gb.
>>559122514Still looks better than Sims 4 in every possible way.
>>559122196>Mac version got a update recently that supports 64bit and solves memory leaksOh look, it's another retard that doesn't know what 32 bit and 64 bit actually means. For the record, the recent Mac update is notoriously MORE buggy than the old 32 bit Mac build. Not less. And no, they didn't "solve memory leaks".
>>559104938shitty small house on a shitty small unpainted foundation my love... my dear...
>>559121958Are you playing on a toaster? Sims 4 runs great and is very stable, Sims 3 doesn't run as good, but it never crashed my laptop
>>559095423>SimsJust play AI Shoujo.
>>559122704post one (1) good looking TS3 sim
>>5590954233 probably has more degenerate stuff if thats what you're after. 4's community got really divided about it for some reason, plus it was about the time people started being jews with mods and locking them behind patreon tiers. You can work around that but its the principle of it.
>>5591222923770k + 2060 super, 24gb of 1600mhz ddr3this pc will run cyberpunk 2077 at maximum ultra whatever at 60 fps or soif anything, i suspect its unstable due to the hardware being TOO good. i've attempted adjusting gpu settings to reference (evga xc so its factory oc'd) to no avail, i've tried limiting the framerate in nvidia control panel as well as using rivatuner for it, i've done a number of tricks that 'usually' fixes these things (like how test drive unlimited AI flat out breaks and goes invisible above a certain framerate but the game still 'runs')of course i've been updating OS and drivers religiously to fix all those issues. i do it fairly regularly, usually once a month.
You're all wrongthe sims themselves actually look ugly and bland in all games, in a unique way every time.At least the sims 4 sims can make decent fap fuel. fucking lactose intolerant bullshit those first 3 games were on.
>>559122514>>559122941If Sims 4 is so great, why won't you post sims?
>>559122670>Create a Style was (probably) removed from TS4 because of its shitty online engine not allowing it.Wrong. The devs have talked about this. Create-a-Style was removed because it was the primary cause of load time and performance issues for Sims 3.>A modder added in color wheel changes for clothes but since it's spaghetti code, the file is upwards of 50gb.And wrong again. The sole reason the file is so large is they have to replace all the textures for the clothes as they use an RLE format and LRLE is needed for the sliders to function. Why are you opining on things you literally know fuck all about?
>>559100776playing a video game?if you want any proof that 4 is a shit game not a single person here even talks about it as a game it's just as a porn mod center 100% of the time
>>559122921Man, the gameplay for AI was bare bones and pointless but I really preferred if over HS1/2's just a brothel deal. And the island was comfy so that was a plus.
>>559123068Because it's well documented and understood that TS4 has better sims, you just like fucking potatos for some reason.
>>5590954234 is great. play it.
>>559122921It has even worse performance than 3, those slant eyes can't make anything other than an animation viewer and it shows every time they've attempted to do something more since AA2
>>559095423all of the sims games are just as accessible as the rest. the target audience is 11 year old girls
>>559123370>inb4 "comparing a child sim isn't fair because children are ugly"even though you can just tell that this is a butt-ugly child if you have a single eye in your head

>>559123370Looks like some generic dumb bimbo. Good job.
>>559118836>and it seems sims 5 will be online.RIP the franchise much like how online killed Sim City.
>>559123151Not even close to right yourself lmao
>>559095423>5+shame the video creator lost count so fast
>>559095423Neither, play MySims Agents.
>>559123626He's right and you're retarded. Keep your shitty retarded takes to yourself, no need to comment on things you don't understand.
>>559123550>will the savegame start working again if i get more fps?The reverse actually. The engine can't handle more than 60fps. Cap your framerate.
>>559095423Sims 3 is better for the content, Sims 4 is better for the models
>>559095423OP let me tell you a secret about the Sims. Anyone who cares about what Sims actually look like are retards, secondaries, coomers, whatever you want to call them. The game is about building houses. Sims 4 has the best housebuilding with mods of any of the games.
>>559123054> hardware being too goodthat never happened. the only issue that we have is that sims3 is not compatible with modern cards so you need to do a little trickery with that you can find on carls sims guide. and it's only to fix a issue that graphics option keep resetting every damn time you boot the sims because it didn't recognize so it went default as failsafe.something is very wrong with your installation or it's the mods that are in conflict for your sims 3 to crash within 30mins.
>>559123727see thats what i thought so too, so i capped it with rivatuner and nvidia control panel, neither preventing crashes and savegame corruptioni've also fairly recently (within a month) run a full memory sweep to check if any of my ram sticks were bad, with several total sweeps showing no errors. i did have a HDD fail on me recently, but its a seperate disc from the one which sims is on, and has been removed and replaced.
>>559123805and it also has the worst gameplay of any of the games, so you've got fuckall to do with the house once you've made itsims 1 is unironically a better game than 4
>>559123064true>>559123370wrong: >>559123064>>559123550cap your frames, it's like GTA SA situation, more frames = more issues.
>>559124003Sims 1 feels so shit to play nowadays though, your sims have to piss every 3 seconds no off days and the world feels empty. Sims 4 is still shit though atleast Sims 1 has an excuse
>>559123054>of course i've been updating OS and drivers religiously to fix all those issuesanon... updating your OS and drivers only breaks things further
>>559123593simscommunity(.)info/2021/04/30/the-sims-5-eas-director-of-studios-talks-about-the-next-generation-sims-game/EA wants money, simple as that. with them it's either Hit or Miss, and if you miss you are done. expect the sims franchise to be kil because online sucks ass.
For me, it's hording the artefacts of the world in my Vampire Sim's mansion along with all the other collectables.
>>559123975>neither preventing crashes and savegame corruptionThen it must be mods or something. Lots and lots and lots of people play Sims 3. It's not prone to crashing or save corruption. The only major problem it has is it does nothing to clean old obsolete data from the saves so it's inevitable that you're going to hit the memory cap for a 32 bit program but that generally takes dozens of generations worth of sims to happen and there's ways to clear the shit out these days and salvage saves with that problem.
>>559095423They're very different. 3 is by far the better game, don't listen to any retard that tries to shill 4 as the better experience. 4 however is more newcomer friendly and convenient purely by virtue of it cutting back on so many features that it doesn't run like ass by default.>>559095723>Especially if you're into younger shit apparently because every sims 4 thread has people posting their lolis.3 is better for lolis. 4 is better for adults. If all you care about is appearance and an animation viewer, go 4. If you want a porn game, go 3.
>>559124275>"ahead of its time">4 was going to be online but it was canned because of how much people explicitly hated online gamesi like 3 and all but i was kind of hoping for a playable game after it
>>559123709>He's rightSamefag away, my chum
>>559123825no mods, fresh install... don't know what to tell you. using the repair tool shows that the game should be fine, and reinstalling it despite that didn't change anything.by 'too good' i mean for instance: GPU clocks are too high, game becomes unstable due to not being intended to run at certain speeds. synchronisation issues occur. can possibly be remedied by limiting framerate, though not always.the crashes do not occur at any particular point. it could happen while you're painting. it could happen while youre saving. or it could happen just as you switch between construction and play mode. it seems to have no particular pattern.sometimes it will softlock (still play music, still be 'responding' according to windows, but stuck ingame, and not progressing)honestly, sims 2 was the same for me, just not to the same degree. sims 3 wasn't this bad before, but has been getting progressively worse with each gpu upgrade. i wont touch sims 4 because i am not the target audience for that game
>there are anons here who didn't integrate Sims 1&2 music into the other Sims gamesThe baby making music is out of this worldhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GE14f-tvT-0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prNK4RdBODsAnd then there's the song that sounds like DMX is singing ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGswVfTy3xc
>>559095423Does 3 have good cunny mods like 4 does?
>>559124423the savegame in question is not more than a few hours old - i had just managed to finished creating my gf in the game to accurate to a degree she found satisfying, and slightly creepy at the same time.maybe 3-4 hours of game, and not much saving.like i said, fresh install, no mods. just base sims 3.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlWEvlW9jbYshitty presentation aside, it just astounds me how many of these little details are just completely absent from 3 and 4. In fact, there's two sequels to this. Absolute SOVL

>>559106185>Posts a character from fujoshit oh the iroKNEE
>>559124567try using the patches, you have to limit the frames to 60fps as well, it sucks but hey it's EA's spaghetti that made this. if we only got the sims 3 sauce leak instead of fifa21... man
>>559125039whachu think i did? i'm literally telling that awesomemod kills them.
>>559124003You just build the house. You don't "play" the sims. None of the sims have "good gameplay". They're fucking simulation games.
>>559125238>persona>fujoshitdo you know something I don't or are you just extra retarded?
>>559125169>lying on the internet
>>559125378>You don't "play" the sims. None of the sims have "good gameplay". They're fucking simulation games.some dated stuff aside 1 is still an ok game and 2 and 3 are fun, they're games, you're meant to play them, not figuratively or literally jack off to them
>>559124776Is your framerate actually capped? If you're not playing in fullscreen exclusive then nothing you change in your drivers is going to cap the framerate. Use the console in the game to display the framerate and see if it actually is being capped. Ctrl+shift+c and then type "fps on". If that ever goes above 60 you're going to have problems.
>>559114193You don't need to have a mod to "enslave" sims in 3. You can lock them in your basement or add them to your family and roleplay.
>>559125526Let me put it this way. Dad's will build a dollhouse for their little girl. The dad never plays dolls. Doesn't design the dolls. Puts his sweat and blood into making the dollhouse look nice, something his daughter probably won't appreciate. The daughter just uses it to play dolls.You're either the Dad, or the Daughter.
>>559125770Let me put it this way, they're games, you're meant to play them.If you want to get obstinate and shitpost building the house would be the """daughter""" thing instead of just playing the video game you're just making a shitty diorama.
>>559125979Whatever you say kiddo.
>>559125770eh it's a shit analogy but let's say you are right.>you can fuck off now>>559124732eh probably, if you search for it, i don't remember the name but there was a forum that had three sims in corset and thongs as a icon. you can find it there.
>>559125552i'd think so but i didn't think a capped framerate would be a good way of expressing how that low spec hardware was not the issue.
>>559122921>just play an illusion game that's not AA1-2
>>559125460>"sims 3 sims aren't ugly!">posts ugly pudding face goblin childis that supposed to look good?
>>559126141Then I don't know what to tell you. I've played Sims 3 across 4 different machines and still play it today on my current machine and the one and only time it has ever crashed was because of KW.
>>559126212Easily the best looking child sim I've seen samefagPost one you think looks better
>>559126141nah it's not low spec. it's spaghetti.the game will get wonky if there's too much frames, just like GTA SA where you need to play the vanilla game with a 23fps cap or even the physics will fuck up.
>>559125770>The daughter just uses it to play dolls.Sounds like someone who never played house
>>559102975>>mfw most people play sims wrong by just making a single dude living by himself and just banging womenI just like trying to impregnate as many women in town as I can before starting my actual household so I just randomly run into my progeny around town it’s not as fun in Sims 4 as it is in Sims 3
>>559095423play sims 2

>>559109812>all store itemsFull retard.>Both 2 an 4 run buttery smooth no matter how many mods and store items you have on your full expansion installation.Full bullshit.
>>559126669Sims 3 feels like an explorable WORLD. Empty as it is
>>559095423if you wanna cooom play 3, in 4 your sims never get rejected even if they're the target's autistic fat disgusting grandson asking for sexthere's no sense of progression about anything in that game, it's like a teenage girl designed the game to feel like you're cheating all the time
>>559104938Are you trying to falseflag shit on 2 with that image or what?
>>559127240>Empty as it isit's not empty thoughthe standard big city is fairly big, especially with the social expansions, and then you can go out and do the world exploring shit too
>>559127240I just love that you can pan around at any time in real time and see your sims going out and about living their lives. You never feel constrained by your active household. You can watch scenarios and story progression unfold and switch to other sims on the fly whenever the mood strikes you without needing to go through constant endless load screens.
These are your neighbours. What would you do?
>>559126669Is that Twinbrook? One of the best worlds they've ever done.Fun fact: Ambitions was made by the same devs that made Dead Space. Before making Dead Space they worked on Sims 2 & 3 expansions and a bunch of other shit like golf games. Before they were known as Visceral Games they were just yet another EA support studio called EA Redwood Shores.
>>559126471>GTA SA where you need to play the vanilla game with a 23fps cap literally shut the fuck up you absolute retard holy shit
>>559127575Raid their fridge
>>559127634Yeah it's Twinbrook. I love the atmosphere there.
aight cunts post your sickest housesI want to see off-the-wall bullshit concepts, I don't even care if you made them workshow me an architect's fever dream
>>559127428Im referring how there's this big city, but if you go that bar, gym, library there would be barely anyone inside.It works if you're exploring forests, mountain trails and underground tombs.
>>559095423What one has the better sex mods?What one has the better areas?What one has better npcs?What one has better "gameplay"?
>>559128182I think there were some people in there and I remember at the least bars being fairly active since that was the main spot for the "social" expansions usuallybut yea there was some neat shit to explore outside too sometimes
>>559128251> What one has the better sex mods?4> What one has the better areas?personal preference, 3 is open world however> What one has better npcs?1 and 2, the rest are randomly generated townies> What one has better "gameplay"?1 has majic which is a fuckton of cool stuff2 has a couple of stuff here and there but the animations are whacky3 depends on the xpac for actions4 has better qol than all of them but lacks in pretty much everything else, just do shit X and Y to get a gold medal on some random objective shit
>>559128251if you just mean between 3 and 44333
>>5591282513 for all those, but it requires work and mods. The sex mods are integrated WAY better into the gameplay too.>What one has the better sex mods?4 for convenience if you only want to watch a few animations and close it after 5 minutes.
>>559128498>I think >I remember Yes anon I'm sure you REMEMBER there being social hangouts full of NPCs when you played TS3 a decade ago, but we're not talking about your memories, we're talking about how things actually are.
>>559129278ok dude sure i could be wrong i wasn't saying it as some sort of concrete statementi barely did the social life stuff anyway
>>559128640>1 and 2, the rest are randomly generated towniesAll games make use of both premade and randomly generated NPCs. Sims 4, though, has relatively very few premade sims. Sims 3 probably has the most number of premade sims.
There is another reason for playing these games beside the porn mods? I'm curious, tell me.
>>559128883>4 for convenience if you only want to watch a few animations and close it after 5 minutes.3 it is then. I'm a huge immersionfag and want my sims to live long happy lives with intimate relationships, something I can never have in real life
>>559129278Not them, but I still actively play sims 3 and they do have sims inside. The more sims there are in the world the more sims there will randomly be in hangouts when you pan over them.
Why won't it come to Switch?
>>559129548Building, life simulations
>>559129610because playing shit like this on consoles is aids
>>559129589He's probably expecting huge crowds of sims to be in clubs and shit. The game has a hard cap of around 20ish sims per lot and most of the time you're only going to see maybe a dozen.
>>5591295572 or 3 is definitely the way to go if you're an immersionfag. Gameplay wise 4 is a shallow godmode dollhouse for women where all the sims act the same.
>>5590954233 is laggy but it has so much content that it hurts my brain honestly. You can create kino stories in it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkEEEzzT0Xg&list=PLo1nDt_-WWnWMwRXRsnBiDMBBGYu1mI4V
>>559129831i don't know what kind of numbers they're expecting but 12-20 in a single lot is a fucking lot
Trust me, play 4>create character>build house>wickedwhims>fuck everyone
>>559129831>The game has a hard cap of around 20ish sims per lot and most of the time you're only going to see maybe a dozen.Not with mods, though you're unlikely to ever exceed that under normal circumstances, especially if your active sim isn't on that lot. But with non-rabbithole schools I've had 40-50 sims on those lots. Not something I recommend though unless you have a lot of doorways or the congestion is terrible.
>>5590954234 is bettermake sure to install all the degenerate mods
>>559127575>cas the girl>give sim burglar trait>open up their house>???
>No Burglars in 4>Get raped no vaseline by a vampire instead
>>559128640>1 and 2, the rest are randomly generated townies3 definitely has the most premade sims, though I don't really care about that. What matters is how they act and 2 and 3 are by far the best in this area.
>>559107894>We will never get the perfect life simulatorBut we do have one.It's called Tomodachi Collection
>>559131929>>559129485i think only vladislaus and frost winter dude are premade on sims 4. on 3 i can only remember emit relevart.npcs i mean stuff like agnes crumplebottom and the counts/ninja and the taichi trainer on sims 2, sims 1 has them too.
>>559109617>With an SSD it should only take five minutes tops from launching the game to playing it with all expansionsEven that sounds too long. When I was playing with all expansions, stuff packs, a ton of store crap and mods it was still only taking around 2.5 minutes to load a save. Now that I've cleaned my game up it only takes little over a minute with most expansions and 5gbs of mods still installed.
>>559128640>1 has majic which is a fuckton of cool stuffTechnically all games have majic but none of it feels as majical as it did in the first game.In 2, 3 and 4 it's all "ooh you're a witch, wear a witch hat, do a spell isn't this quirky and funny" meanwhile in 1 your majic has full on "what the fuck am I casting" bullshit going on.Mostly because in 1, majic is something you DO, and in 2+, a witch is something you ARE.
>>559132621Nope on 4 you have always the same starting population, on every game.
>>559132848I dont think magic is any better in 1, they were like legal cheats.I really miss Magic Town from Sims 1. Nothing replicates that Transylvania, Fairy Forest and Carnival themed world.Don't forget , ROLLER COASTERS
>>559127240Honestly I'd say it's one of the better examples of open world done right. The biggest problem is lazy rabbit holes.
Where are the coomposters posting their provocatively-dressed Sims?
>>559127575>knock on door>barge in>play hand buzzer prank on the dad>say mean things to the daughter immediately after spotting her>eat my packaged rotten lunch at their dinner table>break their toilet>walk out
>>559133171FUCKING ROLLERCOASTERSjesus fucking cock and balls do I miss thoseI would spend entire sessions just riding the fucking things until my sims passed out in their own piss
>>5591334091-3 sims fans talk about the games and series. 4 fans use it as a dressup screenshot simulator.>>559133563
>>559133080are we counting the households as townies now?there is a townie household however and many sims has this thing where they put a couple of sims in there and let the game generate the rest, it's usually a M/F worker that is premade and the rest is generated. there is the tutorial sims like Alex Moyer which is fucking immortal and the Newbie family.
>>559132621There's different types of sims in the game. You've got premade residents, you've got townies, you've got role sims and you've got npc sims. What's classified as "npc" changes from one game to the next. I think the only sim that has ever been consistently considered an "npc" sim in all games is the grim reaper. Basically an npc sim is just a premade sim you're not supposed to fuck with otherwise you might break the game. Vlad is not an npc in Sims 4 and neither is not Santa Claus. Vlad is a regular resident sim. Not Santa Claus is a role sim. Sims 4 has premade resident sims and npc sims. What it doesn't have is premade townies and role sims. Pretty sure that Sims 1 & 2 has premade townies but not premade role sims. Only Sims 3 has both premade townies and premade role sims.
>>559133880>4 fans use it as a dressup screenshot simulator.Hilarious because 3 was like that before late 2014
>>559134646>What it doesn't have is premade townies and role sims.Actually, I'm wrong on this. Sims 4 has a very small handful of premade role sims, like not Santa Claus. But it's rare for them to bother to do this. And if not Santa Claus dies in your Sims 4 game the game just randomly generates a new sim to take over his role. Roles sims losing their roles don't matter. Npcs losing their roles can break your game.
Imagine a world where 3 wasn't such ungodly spaghetti code that it could load faster then 6 minutes off of my SSD socketed right into my motherboard. It would be beautiful.
>>559135036Chinman, mazes and plantation owners are not the same.
>>559135370It's a shame EA is too damn lazy to update Sims 3 so it can actually use 64 bit architecture so it can use more than 4gb RAM. I'm hoping that EA hack will get us Sims 3 source code so modders can work on improving the game.
What are my best options for making The Sims 3 run well? I downloaded the Russian Repack a while back and have an NVME SSD.
>>559135370>Imagine a world where 3 wasn't such ungodly spaghetti codeSims 3 load time issues is not related to "spaghetti code", something I'm sure you don't even know the meaning of. Sims 3's load time issues is due to the fact the game load dozens of lots and over a hundred sims when you load the game because it's open world. That on its own probably wouldn't be a big deal but, according the devs, the fact that in doing this the game has to do a bunch of crap involving create-a-style is what causes the load time to be so long.
>>559135370Takes a minute to load on my ssd with nearly all expansions and a ton of mods. I have no clue what causes these discrepancies for some people. Only thing I can think of is the game is loaded up with everything out there, the world is huge with 500+ sims and no nraas to clean out the bloat.
>>559134646dude vlad is a premade sim. it's Vladislaus Straud. dude is the same across all saves.the roles are generally hidden traits, sims 2 handle this like shit because most of the time these npc's are in the objects part of the game so they really can't have any data added/removed from them. that's why trying to make the grim reaper playable will break your save but trying to get agnes preggo will fuck up your installation.>>559135906it also doesn't clean sims propely, so yeah it has spaghetti in it.
>>559135797Nraas is a must and they have helpful tips on their site for other things like capping the framerate.
You think there is any chance they'll ever do a sims 3 complete remaster? With all the content and optimized so it doesn't take a NASA computer to run well?Trying to play with more than 2-3 packs installed is just pain.
Honestly, I miss spin-off games like Bustin' Out and the Urbz. The PS2 and GBA versions of those games were great.
>>559136446>You think there is any chance they'll ever do a sims 3 complete remaster?No, because that would cannibalize their cashcow. The only way they'd do it is if they started creating more dlc and packs for that remaster. A real shame too since just making 3 64bit would help its performance immensely.
>>559136109>dude vlad is a premade sim. it's Vladislaus Straud. dude is the same across all saves.Yeah, he's a resident. He lives in a house. He's no different to any other premade sim that lives in a house like the Goths. They'll be there when you start a new save too. Sims 4 has a lot of premade residents. These are not what "npcs" are in the context of The Sims.>the roles are generally hidden traits, sims 2 handle this like shit because most of the time these npc's are in the objects part of the game so they really can't have any data added/removed from them. that's why trying to make the grim reaper playable will break your save but trying to get agnes preggo will fuck up your installation.No, these games all work very differently. Yes, Sims 4 uses a lot of hidden traits and buffs to get specific sims to do specific things, i.e. be role sims, but that's not quite how the other Sims games work. NPCs are not just regular sims but with hidden traits in Sims 2. They're very unique sims. They often have data that will cause issues if the game tries to treat them like a regular sim. That's why you don't fuck with them. It corrupts your save.You're kind of throwing a bunch of different types of sims into one pot and acting like they're all the same thing. They're not for technical reasons.
>play ts3 way back in the day with my shitty onboard graphics laptop, it runs like shit>excited to try it on my 3090/5900X>it seemingly runs worse, even with nrahow did you manage this EA
>>559135036There was a huge difference in the types of screenshots being taken here though.
>>559136916>A real shame too since just making 3 64bit would help its performance immensely.No it will not in any way. Making Sims 3 64 bit will just solve the issue of hitting the memory addressability cap for 32 bit programs. It WILL NOT make the game run faster. That is not how this shit works.
Went to sleep with 5 replies and wake up with this. Why are you like this /v/?
holy shit i didn't know /v/ had this many tranniesi need to get out of this site immediately, everything is compromised at this point
>>559135624>It's a shame EA is too damn lazy to update Sims 3and niggas still have the gall the charge full price on an old game
>>559137238I miss these thread-long OPs, last ones I saw posted here were of that one guy who is constantly trying to find new ways to break TES: Oblivion.
>>559137669NOOOOOO YOU CAN'T TALK ABOUT VIDEO GAMES
>>559136621I loved the Urbz, such a shame there's no PC version with the modding capability of the main gamesAll the Sims 2 spin-offs are great too
>>559137669go back to your genshit containment thread
>>559137262>Making Sims 3 64 bit will just solve the issue of hitting the memory addressability cap for 32 bit programsExactly. Which would immediately make a big difference.Considering the game has to constantly load in and out textures and models when you're moving around, yes it will. Sure they'd need to do a little more to make use of more RAM, but that would be relatively trivial.
>>559137589because it's the sims.>>559136925i was counting backwards, 4 has more malleable with "npc" (sims with unique interaction) because they sort of learned with their mistakes on sims 2. and i'm literally counting as npc's sims that have unique interactions within a specific role, that's why 1 and 2 have the "most npc's" than the other installations for having premade sims with a special tag in them. 4 and 3 don't have as much but on how much sims you can interact in a special way i believe it goes for sims 4 if you count the xpacs.
>>559137589>wake up to actual discussion about the simsGood thread OP
>>559137893I still want a modern version of The Sims Busting Out or The Urbz for the GBA/DS
>>559138491I just want a competitor at this point. EA will keep pandering to women and women will keep eating that shit up despite their whining about how bad it is. Humble is the only hope.
>>559137893What was your favourite district, anon? I really like Neon East and Diamond Heights. >All the Sims 2 spin-offs are great tooI liked the cooking system in the PS2 Sims 2. Was also neat to move around with the analog sticks.
>>559139095ps2 was cool AF. doing a violin battle to resurrect was cool but if you forgot to skillup your sim the result was shilling 500$ to him. the WHY of ea not doing a game like that anymore lingers.
>sims 4 is actually profitable for EAWe are not getting sims 5 soon, no?
>>5590954233 is the worst sims game
>>559139095Central Station and Neon East, always had a thing for punk chicks I loved the DS and PSP versions of 2 and how they expanded on Strangetown and its characters backstories

>>559140378It means a nutcase (in UK)But The Sims is developed in the US soooooooo
>>559140378>Is EA going to get cancelled How many have there been calls for EA to be boycotted/cancelled? Yet we are still here
>>559137112Is it really that bad?Just upgraded to a proper PC after being a laptopfag for the longest time, seeing that better specs hardly improve the experience is kinda disheartening
>>559139717>3 is the best sims gameftfy
they screwed us builderbros by giving tiny shitty lots and no worldsalso no create a style
>>559097495Playing 3 on a modern pc makes loading times much less. There are a few benchmarks but for comparison my pc is about 3 years old and i launch the game within 2 minutes
>>559140802Sims 3 sabotages itself no matter what good rig you give it.its like a person that stays all day in the hotel room no matter where you go
>>559140802I have no problems with it. Loads quickly and runs fine, but I installed Nraas and followed their guide. You might also want to do this, but I'm not sure if it really makes a differencehttps://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=26753.0
>>559140802Sims 3 is just not built around 64 bit systems or 8-core CPUs. The best performance you'd probably get is probably getting a really sharp dual-core CPU with as much RAM as windows Vista can manage.
>>559141014>my pc is about 3 years old and i launch the game within 2 minutesSame and I've got all expansions except island paradise
What's the best city in Sims 3 (including DLCs)?
>>559104938>muh soul!there is no bigger lazypost than this.
>>559141695Official: Dragon Valley, i personally love how green it isFanmae: anne Arbor
>>559141695I like starlight shores, twinbrook and moonlight falls. There's also a ton of worlds other people have made that are worth looking into. Some worlds definitely perform better than others though. I tend to stick with the smaller ones and limit the sim population to eliminate stutter.
>>559141582>The best performance you'd probably get is probably getting a really sharp dual-core CPUSims 3 was actually developed for quad core computers. Its optimized to use three cores and leave one for the OS.
Why the fuck are all Sims 4 neighbourhoods so shitty and tiny?There's room for what, two or three custom families in an entire city, AT MOST.
>>559141695If it actually worked, the city would be pretty kino but otherwise Twinbrook. I like the comfyness of Sunset Valley and all the callbacks to Sims 1 and 2 families but I hear that world is pretty bugged too.
>>559142096Because that was the only way they could get the game to not run like ass. Sims 4 didn't fix any of the optimization problems or routing issues 3 had, they just cut the intensive features out and made sims walk through objects, each other, and randomly reset if anything goes wrong.
>>559141976>download awesome fanmade world>sim gets stuck in an invisble place after leaving from vacation
Fuck you guys for making me want to redownload one of the games again.
>>559142350Reset the lot or sim with Nraas. That's one of the most useful features it has.
>>559095423I've played them both a very good amount. Sims 4 is the better game and less of a headache.The main thing that sims 3 has over sims 4 is the open world and amount of houses you can make.For some reason sims 4 has a very limited amount of building areas and there are loading screens for everything. Making your sim live in an apartment kinda helps with that though. You can see plenty of npcs walking around outside and you can seamlessly walk out and interact with them. But it's a smaller area.In Sims 4, you can get MCCC mod to make more sims spawn, and change pretty much any option in the game to fit how you want to play.There's countless great sex animations and adult mods for sims 4. You can pretty much roleplay out any scenario you want at this point. It's the king of adult gaming imo content-wise. However it is not my favorite Adult game still.
>>559142590>In Sims 4, you can get MCCC mod to make more sims spawn, and change pretty much any option in the game to fit how you want to play.MCCC mod is crazy limited compared to Nraas. Nraas is the much better suite and can literally customize everything about the game on a very detailed level.The only thing 4 has over 3 is convenience, but that comes at the expense of the game.
>>559142151>I like the comfyness of Sunset Valley and all the callbacks to Sims 1 and 2 families but I hear that world is pretty bugged too.Sunset Valley is probably the LEAST buggy world they ever released for Sims 3. The city works. It's the apartment lots that don't. The game likes to spawn sims in random locations on the ground floor but the problem with this for the apartment buildings is that means they get spawned inside the walls. They're supposed to be able to use the special NPC doors to get out but apparently these doors bug out and so the sim gets stuck in the walls and bogs down the game as they constantly try to path find out of the building and fail to do so. You can fix this but it's pain in the ass. You have to go through all the apartment lots and get rid of the hidden room markers on the ground floor and replace the existing door so even if a sim does get spawned in the walls they'll be able to get out on their own. The "fixed worlds" thing floating around for Sims 3 doesn't do this. None of those fixed worlds ever touch any of the lots.
>>5590954233 is a much better game, but you need an ssd and mods to make it playable. It's crazy how much better it is than 4 though and how much potential it still has. I can't play 4 for 15 minutes without being bored. It's only good for a quick fap, but even then 3 has way better sex mods, albeit far less animations.I will never not be pissed the community went along with ea's garbage despite knowing full well how shitty 4 is and griping about it all the way. In turn that made the modding community move on to 4 because that's where the money is.
>"Sims 4 is so much better than Sims 3">"Why?">"It just is">"Does it have better neighbourhoods?">"No">"Does it have better AI?">"No">"Does it have more customization?">"No">"Does it have more base content?">"No">"Does it at least have the basics of Sims 3, like palette coloring items?">"No">"Then how the fuck is it better?">"It has sex mods"Fuck you people so much.
>>559143115>Sunset Valley is probably the LEAST buggy world they ever released for Sims 3I've heard this from several people but I cannot play on Sunset Valley for more than a few in-game weeks before things start going wrong that even Nraas can't fix. The least buggy world that I like the most is Moonlit Falls. I can play on that world forever without any issue.Though I suspect it's not just the worlds that can have issues, but what lots you're playing on.
>install all sims 4 expansions and updates>every randomly generated townie is now a brown skinned sim with a japanese name wearing a turban or hijabdoes the woke twitter crowd actually like this stuff or are they pissed off too? I feel like throwing everything together like this isn't the kind of thing I'd want if I wanted to see my culture represented in the game.
>>559143509Don't forget that even if house building, deccorating, people making, or dress up aren't your forte you can still play 3 like an ant farm letting whole towns run just to see what happens, or even like an RPG with how much more shit it had then 4.
>>559098373Theres an old STEAM website that is a tad bit UNDERGROUND so its kinda hard to find. They have a lot of dlc unlockers for games. I got both the sims 4 and 3 there with all the dlcs plus an application that updates everything so I automatically get all the newest dlc.
Whatever happened to that game that was being made to compete with The Sims on Steam? I remember seeing it talked about on /v/ a long time ago but never mentioned again. Was it any good?
>>559143757i guess it varies, i can't play on isla paradiso not even if i was paid because the routing fuck ups make the game hang like crazy.
>>559143771Nobody is generally upset to see non-white characters in Sims 4 but they all absolutely complain about how bad random generation is in the game.
>>559143992Paralives is vaporware
>>559095423I read comer as "coomer." In which case, yes, 4 is more coomer friendly.
>>559143992Paralives? Only fucking idiots think some indie title is going to compete with a major publisher with a budget in the 10s of millions. It's like thinking some random indie boomer shooter is going to dethrone Call of Duty or something. Not a chance in hell.
>>559143771Ever since some "influencers"/activists make a fuss about the supposed lack of brown skin options, the idiots at Maxis went full retarded and added a TON of extra brown colors, so now any new random character has a 70% chance or probably more of being black.
>>559144139I hope not. Even if I don't think it'll be all that great I still want EA to get reamed by at least some competition so they're forced to up their game.>>559144363>Only fucking idiots think some indie title is going to compete with a major publisher with a budget in the 10s of millionsSome big indie games do manage and 4 is hot trash regardless of its budget. People keep acting like a competitor will need all the furniture and useless feature bloat in order to compete and that's retarded. All it needs to be is a good game.
>>559144139>Paralives is patreonwarevaporware implies it was abandoned, not kept hostage until the ransom tier was attained and had parts of it sent to whoever cares about it as pictures.
>>559143992Paralives is still being worked on but it's community is infested with drama and woke trannies. Rod Humble has implied he's working on something so that's where the money is.
>>559143509well I mean, if the sex mod aspect of it has way more content and is better.. then it is better since that's the main use of the game.
>>559144982>has way more content and is better..It's not though. The only thing it does better is it has way more animations thanks to all the patreon fags milking it dry. Feature and gameplay wise it's far worse.
>>559145175what did the sims 3 sex mods have that sims 4 doesn't?
>>559144670>Some big indie games do manageName one time an indie company has kicked the ass of a major publisher's competing title.
>>559146110i believe people will say stuff that they believe it kicked but in the end it did nothing.so hollow knight and cuphead are out already.
>>559145287Sims 3 has brothels, prostitution, call girls, rapists, bestiality, drugs, alcohol, dominant/submissive, schools, exhibition, story progression, a dynamic arousal system with actual depth that's tied into the autonomy in a satisfying way, sims become more corrupted over time to the point where they can accept sex more frequently and easily or from a side fling but not the maxed out affection sim they're in a pure relationship with, context sensitive choices/autonomy like groping, skinny dipping, dancing naked, assaulting a sleeping sim, etc. and that's off the top of my head. I'm sure there's overlap there, but those are things I can enjoy in 3 but feel nonexistent or nonfunctional in 4. There's more that I know overlaps and all of this ties into the game in a fun way that feels natural.In Sims 4 sex boils down to charisma or a set amount of affection and once you ask for sex you can have sex forever with that sim from then on. Hell if your charisma is like level 6 or so, which is extremely easy to do as you get it and it raises passively, you can straight up just ask for sex from a stranger and they'll agree. All you do is just pick an option and watch it play out in 4. It's little more than an animation viewer.
>>559123370Same sliders but default skin, eyes and hair. No effort required.
>>559147236I must have missed when a major publisher released a competing title that got its ass kicked. What game are you referring to?
what is the biggest lot i can move in in sims 4 ? the loading screens annoy me so i am not planning on leaving my place often. where should i move in ?
>>559147796stardew valleya.k.a harverst moon 2d ripoff.
>>559147796Natsume, Xseed, Nintendo, and Marvelous are all pretty big
>>559125393P5 is full fujoshit stop pretending to be retarded.
Never played Sims 3, where can I pirate it?
>>559148242anadiususeful mods are loverslab and atf
>>559148358>spoilerNot worth the hassle. Only time I ever even used them in 4 was by accident when someone here bundled them in a mega full of other mods. Not really my kink anyway.
>>559148242>>559148358and direct download or don't torrent without a vpn. ea still watches it and will send you a letter
>>559148046>>559148135Again, I'm not seeing the name of a game released by a major publisher that was specifically competing against Stardew Valley and got its ass kicked. Indie clones of 20 year old franchises that the major publishers don't make entries for anymore doesn't count. I want an example of actual direct competition with the indie coming out easily on top.
>>559148573Well how do I direct download anadius? Only option I've found is torrent.
>>559148649They still do with Story of Seasons and Rune Factory. Sure that's no CoD, but those still get releases and are fairly big whether you want to admit that or not. For good or bad, Stardew trounces them.Hell, the best selling game of all time by far is an indie game. Dismissing them offhand as not being able to compete is out of touch.
>>559149072>using the torrent...You are speaking a direct contradiction to me. You're saying direct download instead of torrent by using the torrent. What the fuck does that mean?
>>559148649i said it here dummy: >>559146683>>559149237your only option is using the torrent... that is what i meant.
>>559148835Looks like they removed the direct download option or I'm thinking of something else. Could've sworn they used to have a little program you downloaded and ran that, picked the expansions/stuff you wanted, and it downloaded and installed it.
>>559129387>i think >i feel
>>559147071Have you done any modding past whickedwhims? Every single thing you said excluding schools is in the sims 4 with additional mods that work pretty well.Also, I don't mean to say any of this in a asshole sort of way at all. But, if you want I can make a list of mods that will add the functions that you're missing in the sims 4. I think you're missing many important ones that add a lot of the flavor that you're missing in your currently modded game.
>>559149976Hey, not that guy but hit me up. I got WW and those things sound like fun.
>>559149976DO IT FAGGOT(make a pastebin or throw it in a drive)
>>559149597>>559149237You might be thinking of the updater that can patch an existing download of the game. I use it all the time to get the current patch and the new dlc. You still need an initial torrent though.i'd recommend fitgirl for the full game(use the .site, all others are fake virus traps) Then get the anadius updater from that cs.rin website for all dlc/patches that are missing.
>>559150228>>559150514I'll do it, would you rather me write out a complete guide with links and descriptions for each mod you'll be adding and how to access the content within the mods?Or would ya rather me just dump the mod names and leave ya too it?
>>559151418Damn anon. I'd be ok with just the names, but if you could guide my hips i'd appreciate it.
>>559149976>Have you done any modding past whickedwhims?Yeah. My mod folder for Sims 4 is like 5gb of pure sex. None of the mods I have interact with the game in a way that makes me care about it beyond simply playing animations. For example I recently got rid of Wicked Perversions because it was so shallow and messing with the better WW animation player. That alone was the only thing offering any sort of "rape" or domination/submission. All you did was walk up to a sim and select the option you wanted and the animation either played out or it didn't. In Sims 3 for example if you rape someone your sim will attempt to beat the shit out of them and that can either succeed or fail and the other sim can either like it or hate it if they're a masochist, which can be a given trait or learned. The sims around them will freak out and call the cops and if caught that sim can be thrown in jail. It can also happen autonomously if you choose to enable it or give sims evil/rapist traits and if they get to horny without release they have a chance of setting themselves on another sim. You can set how frequently it might happen. You can have a town full of rapists and everyone's getting ganbanged in alleyways and set notifications to alert you to it or you can have it limited to one sim, or you can shut it off entirely. There's depth there that just isn't present in Sims 4 from my experience.Also Sims 4 absolutely does not have the depth with arousal or the context sensitive choices/autonomy. Those and story progression alone are a huge factor in my enjoyment of 3 over 4. I started with 4, felt let down by it, tried out 3 on a whim and was far happier. I only play 4 now for something quick, a bit of variety or just to see if anything has changed, and it never does.
>>559095423is sims 2 actually worth playing without mods? i got the ultimate edition for free years ago on origin
>>559152605No, but only because you need a mod to fix the shadows, and optionally mods to fix some edge cases that can cause save corruption and restore some broken stuff that EA broke with later expansions.
>>559151890Also the animations are context specific so you'll only get rape related animations, not have to manually choose one. It's totally viable to roleplay as a burglar in Sims 3, break into someone's house, and rape them while they're sleeping. Only thing I wish it had in this regard was a better system for kidnapping.
>>559152746can you spoonfeed me with the modnames?
>>559095423Unfortunately the sims 3 torrent runs like shit because of how many DLC packs it has
>>559151790I'll give ya a quick rundown off the top of my head in case this thread dies soon>whickedwhimsthe base modstrip clubs(employ sims you find that you like and customize the building, set the hours, etc.)can make strip club into brothel or also work as a brothel with nisawhickedperversions>devious desirespet sex(beastiality)rapesubmissiondommilk farm>basemental drugs/gangadd drugsadd gangspretty in-depth and lets you roleplay out additional scenarios>nisaswhickedperversionsadds brothel ability to strip clubadds prostitutes(can make your own and assign them to be prostitutesadd call girlsadds web modelscan build cam studio with asshole boss who asks for favorsmuch moreSome of these options like setting who is a prostitute or a brothel woman will require some typing in the cheat menu to set them. Easy though, it's literally selecting a sim and them writing in the command. However, newer versions might have made an actual button for it. You'll have to read on each mod page to figure out how to get to their menus to customize each mod settings to your liking. They all have a lot of settings. usually you have to toggle cheats on first too. Any specific questions I'm happy to help.Also, loverslab for whickedwhims, f95 for everything else for patreon/current versions. But each mod has their own respective website as well. f95 has a fuck ton of animations as well. You'll want as many as you can get your hands on.
>>559153479No, learn something for yourself. I spoonfeed you faggots on how to play PC games enough when there isn't a big green "Install" button on your poopoopeepee ubisteam epic launchers.
>>559136621>LET'S GET RETARDED IN HERE>>559137893True, at least we can emulate it though
>>559139095Neon East had some of the greatest music, but I think that Skyline Beach is my favorite just because of how cozy it feels.
Could anyone give me a must-have list of Sims 3 mods? I'm looking at the nraas stuff already.
>>559154501>You'll want as many as you can get your hands on.Appreciate the mod list, but hard disagree here. Most are terrible. Get only the animations from animators who look good unless you want to be seeing a ton of jank. Even then you'll likely have to disable a bunch that look bad.
>>559095423I only play Sims for the porn mods
>>559155114>>559155406God I love this game, the urban setting fits the Sims series so well, it's a shame they never made more.>>559139095Sims 2 for the PS2 actually started development as a sequel to The Urbz, it was later repurposed into a regular Sims game but there's lots of leftover in the game files that hint to that
>>559155830General? Porn? If you've got Nraas I'd say the next stop is improving appearance. Start looking for good default skin, eyes, and hair mods that you like. Hoover up all the sliders you can get. Default skin and eyes will go a long way to making the sims look better and the rest will help you customize them further. Search around for a lighting mod you like. Look into awesomemod, though if you want porn I think that conflicts with kinky world. It might work with passion, a different porn mod some people swear by.
>>559157505>General? Porn?Both. The big draw of Sims to me is that it's an interesting life sim that also lets me live out degenerate fantasies. Do I need anything besides the wickedwhims equivalent if I want futa content?
>>559156630that's understandable. when you see animation previews it's up to you where you draw the line at too much jank. I got all the big names and maybe like 10 smaller named animators in mine. And I still have more than I'd ever need right now.
>>559098650>game is old so it shouldn't run on your new PCWhat the fuck kinda excuse for shit optimization is this? The game was optimized like shit, it's the developers fault for it not running well. Meanwhile Unreal Tournament 1999 still runs with no issues whatsoever.Go back to c*ns*les that actually degrade, pleb.
Are all male sims players just coomers?
>>559159805There's also some genuine psychopaths
>>559095423sims 4 is not a videogame
>>559159957Yea this guy sounds like a serial killer in the making. >>559147071
>>559159805I guess, since there no gameplay there other than building houses.
>>559157684Kinky World is pretty all in one and has futa and strapons. It has a ton of features, but it also has some drawbacks with bugs and supposedly performance, though I haven't noticed anything different with the latter. I haven't heard great things about the latest versions though. Some people prefer Passion, which is more streamlined, but I don't know if it has futa.
>>559159805does it even matter?do you want to play the sims with someone else or something?
Currently working on a life simWhat are some things you guys want out of a life sim
>>559160168>comparing porn features in a fictional video game makes you a potential serial killerbruh
>>559160687playing a banjo at the front porch with a straw hat and a cigar. and there's a minigame where you can use a shotgun to kill trespassing niggers
>>559160687sims x gta
>>559160687How in depth are we talking? I could list many things I'd like to see in a game of a similar vein but are you looking to create something akin to the sims and if so, do you have a team or are you working alone? I mean no offense but I find it hard to imagine an indie being able to pull off something like the sims.
>>559160168I was answering a question give me a break.
>>559161109>playing a banjo at the front porch with a straw hat and a cigark>there's a minigame where you can use a shotgun to kill trespassing niggersnot if I want to list it on steam>>559161392no>>559161667You can assume it's pretty in depth
>>559160168Knowing the ins and outs of porn mods is a clear sign of a serial killer? Sounds more like a coomer to me
>>559162061>noBelieve in yourself
>>559162387What you're asking for is basically a real life simulation, which is impractical
>>559162061Okay, the biggest thing I miss is the feeling of progression. A good host of items should exist at different "tiers" with the lower level objects feeling needs slower. The goal is to start out poor and to have difficulty managing needs and as you climb up things become easier to manage, kinda like sims 1 but without the horrible drain on needs. I pine for a more modernized sims 1 but with more objects, if there was a mod to make needs drop slower naturally I'd probably still be playing the first game.
>/v/ is filled with anons who play simsYou guys do know like 80% of this game's fanbase is women, right?Wait a second. That means this thread...
>>559098143>EA/Maxis specifically designed SIms 3 to run like shit so they could sell sims 4What? This is weird fucking theory anon. Sims 3 runs like shit because it's trying to do too much, open world was a mistake.
Can someone explain what they mean by sims 3 is open world? I've never played it. Aren't they all technically open world?
>>559162901Sense of progression as your sim gains wealth, got it. It probably won't be exactly like that but I think I know what you mean. Anything else?>>559163383tell me more
>>559163319No one here actually plays it, probably just added a bunch of sex mods and are too scared to uninstall the game because they wasted too much time trying to mod it
>>559163319Yeah like 90% of the people who like the series are either fags or women now but I started playing this shit back in 2000, I really doubt any woman that's a sims fan now even heard of the first game. I kinda got "grandfathered" into the series because of that but it's beyond saving now, it's way too pozzed. Still miss the non-pussified games of yore though even if they were sissy dollhouse games.
>>559163319Not on /v/. Everyone here plays it for porn or to do fucked up shit. At least that's how it was until 4 anyway. It's pretty obvious /tsg/ is full of women.
>>559164131>It's pretty obvious /tsg/ is full of women.No there's plenty of guysIt's just that by the standards of other threads it's choke full of vaginas
>>559154501Dumb question, but do most of these animations work for loli or do i have to search for people that fill that niche?
>>559163319I mean, if I say it out loud I just get spammed with LONDINIUM or requests for bob. No point in bringing it up.
>>559165150Tits or gtfo, roastie.
>>559165362Post your dick first, sizelet.
>>559164812You need specific content for loli/shota yes. 3 is better in this regard imo
>>559163702Oh yeah I could autistically talk about this for hours. A way to import textures and a color wheel similar to 3 would be fantastic, 3 may have had a terrible character creator compared to 4 but one thing they absolutely nailed was color/texture customization of every object/clothing. Thread ain't got a lot of time left though so to be brief all else I can say is that try to do the opposite of what 4 has done in regards to the "gameplay" side. If you have traits or a traitlike system give them depth, make them affect autonomy significantly, if you have moods or emotions make them consistent instead of random and don't give them a bunch of superfluous "interactions" e.g. "take angry poop" or "pee like a champion" which are pointless. I don't know how serious your game is going to be or the general tone but for the love of god please don't have a bunch of goofy idle animations like 4 has, if you tell your character to fix a meal have them fix the damn meal instead of picking their ears and randomly staring off into space that shit is terrible.
>>559165436Not for shota it isn't. Hardly any love for shota specific animations in 3. Lolis are good though.
>>559165580Yea deep gameplay is my main goal. I think it's what the series needs the most. Color wheel yes, textures I am thinking about. What is your favorite story from the Sims?
>>559095423Me personally, I like to play Sims games like an RPG where I basically try and become a rich superman who conquers the world and establishes a large dynasty.I dislike the lack of options I can use to accomplish that, for example not being able to kill anyone sucks and mods that are available to add stuff like that are invariably low effort and fetishy. I don't want to play a porn game, I just wanna have a cool modern themed villain simulator.
>>559165412>>559164131>>559165632Tits or GTFO exists as an old adage for a reason. It reminds the femanon that she better shut the fuck up about her gender, or admit that the only good she can add to this thread, because of her inferior sex, is the visuals of her tits. No one actually cares much to see your tits, only to remind you of your place.
>>559166120Story? As in personal experience or one of the pre-made sims such as bella?
>>559166145Have you tried "sim snatcher" yet? It has no sexual content as is, would compliment your style of play very well, I'd think.
Nraas has like forty mods on its page, which specific ones do I want/aren't out of date? Master Controller, and anything else in particular?
>>559101590/Thread. Can't disagree with any of this.
>>559165580>e.g. "take angry poop" or "pee like a champion" which are pointlessIf 4 cut down on all the superfluous choices that gave away the result and instead gave each base action unique animations and outcomes depending on mood, traits, the sim they're talking to, etc. that would immediately make 4 ten times better. They already have the work done with those mood dependent actions, they just chose to implement it in the most shallow, banal way possible.
>>559166403>INTERNET IS SERIOUS BUSINESS!Fuck off incel.
>>559166656No, I haven't messed with any mods really after my initial disappointment with low quality and/or fetishy shit.Basically, here's what I want to accomplish in a Sims game. Make two brothers, have one become a vampire or wizard and make huge amounts of money while also murdering people and being a dickhead. The other brother decides to get jacked and defeat first brother, possible needing to pass that shit on to his kids who will need to be like fucking Castlevania Belmonts slaying evil and shit over generations.This kind of gameplay is what I'm looking for, because it's goal oriented and actually gives me long term plans instead of just making my house and then being done.
>>559167001None of them are out of date. All the Nraas mods are useful for various things. The most important ones are master control, overwatch, maybe error checking. A lot of the other ones are for finetuning the game or upping the difficulty like requiring your sim to buy groceries instead of always having their fridge full of infinite quick meals.
>>559167527>incelFound the roastie.
Is the sims 4 open world mod good?
>>559167658What if he was a mob boss instead? Is the fantasy (vampire) a must?Why do you want to tell a story like that? Is that inspired by something?
>>559167963>He replies defensively when called an incel.Found the incel.
>>559166531I have too many to tell, to be honest. My fondest memories and experiences were of the first game but I was a kid back in 2000 so nostalgia is probably a big contributor. One memory I have that stands out to this day was when I found out you could spam the "invite to party" option and get every sim in town to come to your house at once, so I made a bunch of random sims and made a huge box house and invited every single person in town. I had buffet tables all over the place and those bubble blowing machines in rows so everyone could fill their fun super quick. Anyway so a fire breaks out one time and kills one of the oldest sims I'd made but I did that cheat where you delete your sim and bring them back to refresh their needs but it seems like you had to save or something to pull the cheat off and I accidentally saved over the death. I was really bummed out for a while after that as not only was that sim a good friend of mine in a sea of faces but he was randomly generated with a face that reminded me of a close friend from school. Not an interesting or uncommon story I know but I'd never felt something like that from a video game before.
Why don't you homos just play rimworld or dwarf fortress?
r8 my family of background characters and guess which daughter has the penis.
>>559168583>n-no youThank you for entertaining me today.
>>559166145You'd probably love crusader kings 3 fren. That's pretty much the point of the game. And there's some great adult mods for it too right now.
>>559167658You're not really going to be able to pull off something like that in any sims game sadly, even with mods. If your expectations don't consist of "i wanna cheat on my bfLOL" then you're not going to have a good time, especially if we're talking about 4 where literally all sims are the same regardless of traits.
>>559169158The one with the abs?
>>559169435You never had the upper hand weeb LARPER.
>>559169631Congratulations, that is incorrect.
>>559095423The sims 1 is objectively the best sims game
>>559168812It might not be uncommon but that's why people play games like this, that's not a story that other games can easily generate
>>559163702Self-Insert my self-insert and be able to break the (game)system or at least allow creativeness (op combos and whatnot)
Is Sims 3 with expansions worth it if I have a budget PC (8gb RAM, HDD, quad core amd CPU) or will I experience too much lag? How much time to boot up the game are we talking about if I don't install useless EPs like Island Paradise and Katy Perry?
>>559170990It'll be no worse than it was at launch with a top tier PC
>>559170990If you have an SSD loading up a save should take about a minute or two. If it's way more than that, something's wrong. Newer hardware does help run the game at higher resolutions and all that, but it won't fix performance by itself. You'll want Nraas and to look over their tips for performance. Also highly recommend getting mods to make the sims look better, at the very least a default skin.
>>559171841Not that far off the mark for this series.
>>559168368I just wanted to create a longform narrative using Sims as a base. I don't like how generally aimless the games are and wanted to make some crazy shit happen with some logical consistency. As for the vampire bullshit, that's mainly just because they exist in the game and seemed like a useful tool to latch onto.
