We decided to gather our sites on this portal in order to get a smoother browsing and a better navigation, so that our story will go on just in one place - especially with The Sims 4. The site is still quite empty, but we are confident to be able to move everything here soon.
Sooo, one more and I'm done for today! Did you know PC Gamers previewed The Sims 4? Now you do. And do you know who made the not-so-amusing job of transcribing the article from the magazine to the web? None but Honeywell :)
Go. Check her site. Now! Oh, you don't feel like reading everything? Here there are the most interesting parts:
You can't adjust the height of the characters.
You can lock certain parts of a Sim's body and randomize the rest.
Weight and muscles are the only sliders you'll have to tinker with - this will affect the dimensions of the character and the textures.
The search feature allows you to filter the catalog by style and color and it's available for clothes, furniture, wallpapers and floors.
You can create an entire family starting from a Sim, directly in CAS. You can create a Sim's parents, brothers, sisters or children.
You can save local copies of your creations, if you don't want (or can't) play with an active internet connection.
The stability of the game they tried was very critical. Several crashes and odd loading screen.
SimGoodie interviewed SimGuruMarion about several aspects of the game. Unfortunately, we don't seem to be able to access the site, so here's the transcribed version taken from Honeywell :)
SimGoodie: Will babies have more animations depending on emotions? Marion: Our babies are either happy or they cry, much like babies in real life :). However, the Sims in the baby's environment are affected emotionally by the baby's mood, and will react accordingly. We also have some fun interactions with the baby – I am excited that mothers can breastfeed as well as use a bottle, and there is a really funny 'Make Face' interaction that I like a lot.
