I had told myself that I would NOT run and get the sims 3 game the day it came out...
I saw all the nifty pictures people  were posting and I folded like a poorly built house of cards.

I installed the game this afternoon (I even left my sims 2 game installed) and played for about 2 hours. (My poor hubby was not happy, having to share his computer time...lol!)

Anyway, I still have a lot to go through before I completely make up my mind, but so far, I am enjoying the game.
And of course, I have pictures!

I made a new sim to explore the new features, so everyone meet...
Laci Majors

I'm still not completely happy with how the sims look, but they are growing on me.
I gave her the traits of Lucky, Hopeless Romantic, Good, Family-Oriented and Excitable (I think).

Once she moved her into her house, she got a job in law enforcement.
And began learning to cook.

(Thankfully no fires!)

Anyway, the rest of the shots of her and her new boyfriend, Cycil.

And of course, she needed to gain some skill points for work.
(Unfortunately, she can't afford a chess table of her own, so she had to find one downtown.)

And of course, a sim needs her rest after a busy day of flirting and skill building!

Thanks for stopping in!
I will hopefully get more time to play this weekend.

Thank you Beatdoc! I am looking forward to getting some more time this weekend with the game. I'm curious to see all that it has to offer.

Oh good! I thought for a minute I had downloaded something that allowed other user's sims to be in my game...lol!
He has such a funky name, that I just shortened it so it sounded better.

I'm still leary of Sims 3, I love the scenery but the sims still freak me out.

I agree with you Garnet! The scenery and lighting in the sims 3 are very nice, but the sims are strange. I honestly wish my sims 2 sims could play in the neighborhood. (I think I would enjoy the game a lot more!)

I only used the CAS options, too 13066301! I haven't even checked if there is a type of body shop to make sims. (Plan on doing that this weekend.)

aaahh!! I have to wait 2 more days for it to be released here, and yes Im going to be getting it. However I always said that I would get it so its not surprising that I already reserved my copy.

It looks great, glad your having fun.

Thanks Brooke! I'm just glad I could run the game with my sims 2 stuff still installed. (I cleaned out my downloads folder a bit, but the game runs pretty well.)
Hopefully my sims 2 still runs good, so I can keep working on my legacy families!

They look cute CP! I got mine too, and have been having fun playing. I love my Sims 2, but I like the new shiney too. I look forward to seeing more of what your new sims are up to! ;)

Thanks Capri!
I like the new shiney, too! It was fun to get to play something different and I'm curious to see how the sims 3 community handles the new game.

Neat! Nice to see your particular skill for catching perfect, peaceful moments isn't limited to S2. Can't wait for more spam :)

LOL...thanks Alle!
I must admit, I miss the picture mods I had for the sims 2 (No Red Line!!), but I am trying to get good pictures. It is a bit more difficult then I thought it would be.

Thanks bopashu2! The backgrounds and homes are very nice, but the sims do need some work.

Yay! I love your pics, Laci is adorable and Cycil is cute. The more I see of this game the more I want it.

Thank you Tine!
I'm was shocked at how much I liked everyone's pictures...
I just had to run out and grab a copy of the game.

Hehe I wasn't all that impressed either, until people started posting their pics. So I went & bought it anyway. :)

I love Laci. She's very pretty. Can't wait to see some more pics.
