This article lists all features that existed in a beta version of games in The Sims series and features that were planned and showed in concept art, but got cut later in development.

The Sims 2Edit

Base gameEdit


Early beta footage of The Sims 2 reveals that there was precipitation in the form of rain and lightning planned for the base game. It was also shown that Sims could die from lightning strikes whilst in hot tubs during thunderstorms.

The weather feature was later included in The Sims 2: Seasons.

Big Boss scenarioEdit

According to strings viewed in SimPE, the Big Boss NPC was planned to be added to the game alongside his own scenario, similarly to the Headmaster, where Sims would've invited him for dinner and given him a tour of their house.

The Sims 3Edit

Base gameEdit

Clothing storeEdit

There was a clothing store rabbithole planned for The Sims 3, where Sims probably were able to purchase clothes like in The Sims 2. It was shown in some early screenshots and trailers of The Sims 3. It got cut because all the CAS clothes were already unlocked in the beginning of The Sims 3.[1] The model of the rabbit hole resembles that of the spa rabbithole of the final version.

Shopping for clothes was later included in The Sims 3: Into the Future through the EP-XI Imports Gallery.

University LifeEdit

Sportsbar Edit
