Recently installed (April 4, 2013) The Sims Complete Collection. What memories! ... Not really, I've only played The Sims 1 in PC before just once so I didn't have memories in that game. Is that bad? Now I should figure out what the game has to offer!
I found it's not easy to install everything at once and expected to see every single feature available in the game. So many choices, so little time!
The control is a bit... difficult. Maybe I'm too used to the slow control in The Sims 3. Sigh. :s The time passes so quickly and there's no day off. The children also have to attend school forever. How miserable. And it's "all or none" when it comes to going out to community lots.
The Sims 2
Just discovered that both guitars from University and Seasons are recolorable!
The breadfruit tree from Bon Voyage, I think, will burn indefinitely, even if you extinguish it!
Installing The Sims 3 is only messing up with my game's resolution, which is now irreversible widescreen.
The game isn't loading on background! Don't minimize your game!
The Sims 3
For an unknown and mysterious reason, my Sim who works as an Architectural Designer gradually befriended everyone she met, except her husband. Unfortunately, that didn't happen again after I restarted the game.
Found a sailboat in the waters of Twinbrook!
Whoever says The Sims 3 is better than The Sims 2 because it only takes one time for loading, you're really wrong. It almost lags every second.
The stuck-big-house-fire-firefighter emergency occurred to me too!
The way time doesn't pass when going to community lots in The Sims 2 really saves time... which is why I have to set up the lifespan to Long in this game. Duh!
Shift + C = the shortcut to take a snapshot.
I spend half of my time in The Sims 3 waiting for it finish loading, saving, and restarting the game from error.
Incremental patch *almost* screwed up my entire game. I won't even use incremental patch nor trust it anymore. EVER.
To do list, sorted by priority:
Complete career tables, including The Sims 3 careers.
Complete EP pages
Made all Sims in The Sims 3 use default Sim3 template.
