Sound the alarms and go nuts! Luckily this is only in Buy Mode. That and there’s now a Premium Content folder.

  1. I agree with booboo.

    The social features are bad enough…now they are going to start shoving the store at us? Trust me…if you play The Sims 3…you already know about the store.

    Getting really annoyed/sick of The Sims team lately. They are starting to really ruin this game.

  2. Hmmmm, there has to be a way to get around this.

    What happens when you delete the featured item thumbnails?

    Whatever the case, if someone makes a mod that kicks this thing right in it’s fricken face, I’m getting it.

  3. This is all Zynga’s fault. Their squeeze the money out of every orifice mentality is apparently contageous. In real life, they are told to go home until they are well. Don’t they see that Zynga’s days are numbered because of this crap. We don’t want it. Sims 3 is a purchased game not a free social game. What are they thinking? Ok, rant over.

  4. Probably, EA will start adding Horrible Objects and less content in the next expansions, only to promote the “Super Objects” from Store, just to force people buying this stuffs.

  5. @Anjink – exactly my thinking, they’re not forcing, they’re just giving it to us to those who enjoy it (that small group of people, not me!)

    Same with SimPort, they never stated YOU have to do it, it’s “optional”

    You guys need to take a chill pill, seriously, it’s getting annoying to hear you moan about pretty much EVERYTHING.

    Exactly!

  7. With shop mode off, it doesn’t appear.

    With shop mode ON, my game now crashes at startup 😉 Had to re-disable shop mode in the ini file to get it to load.

    On the upside, there are several sci fi themed new objects in this patch, including four very cool trees, a window, 9 walls and a terrainpaint.

    But how? Remember Simguru told us we need simport to unlock “special” furniture? I don’t think that’s really optional now is it? If it is, it shouldn’t be unfair to people not willing to use simport.(Unless we download, which is somehow illegal)

  9. I knew this was going to happen, it says on the End User License Agreement, that this game uses IGA Worldwide Technology and that this game uses in game avertising.
