Sims 3 now with dry hecklers, sturdier umbrellas, fewer pillowfights

, | Games


Does any game have better patch notes than a Sims game? From the notes for v1.50:

New air conditioning units and electrical box decorative objects.

Worst. Decorations. Ever.

Pillow Fight wishes will appear much less frequently.

Hopefully they’ll fix this for sorority houses in the upcoming University add-on.

The Heckle interaction is no longer available [to] Sims swimming in the ocean.

Great news for beach comedians.

Ice sculptures from The Sims 3 Ambitions no longer melt in sub-freezing temperatures.

Physics, man.

NPCs that throw parties in the winter will no longer select Swimwear as the suggested clothing.

EA disavows Kate Upton’s latest appearance in Sports Illustrated.

The frequency of alien abductions has been lowered.


Hot Dog and Pie Eating contests can no longer ironically cause a Sim to starve to death.

If there’s one thing better than a playfully inserted adverb, it’s correct use of the word “irony”.

The frequency of umbrellas breaking has been lowered.

As Warren Spector supposedly said, “Anytime reality gets in the way of fun, fun wins”.
