    I've only played the game for a day as I just got it. So far I like it (although I miss Maxmotives!)

    I like it that they started off with being able to walk or bike to things, as well as get cars (which I haven't done yet). I've only used a taxi once and that was because I sent both my Sims to the movies. (I guess the game doesn't let them both bike there, although that's why I have a bike for each of them.)

    I really like the buy/build modes. I think it will help keep the game from getting as bogged down with custom content since we don't need a special file to get different colors of objects or clothes. I just wish that you could color the stairs and fences the same way.

    I don't like that you essentially lose the place of your active Sims if you choose to play another household. Since they continue to age when you leave them to play somewhere else, I'm going to miss having 6 families to play in rotation. But then I'll go through the generations faster. (I only got through 13 generations with my TS2 set of 6 families.)

    I do hope that they will have a city creator pack so that you can make your own neighborhoods. I hope they don't require that you get a different city game to do it. (I loved using SimCity 4 to make my own neighborhood templates, but I already had SC4 so it wasn't financially difficult.)

    I'm KatAnubis over on TS3, so if you're near it, don't hesitate to stop by my SimPage and friend me!

    Ah, well for the pond, you actually have to go fishing in the sea/rivers then place your captured fishes in the pond. :biggrin:

    You can fish in a pond where you can't see fish, at least you can with Awesomemod anyway.

    Yeah you can still fish in the ponds with a vanilla game .
    But like Nyx said go to the other places you can see fish and transport them to your fishin' hole!

    Mmm after playing it for a bit. Yes I do. No I don't. Yes I do. No I don't. Yes I do.:confusion:

    I miss all the places to go to that have people. Like dance clubs and stuff. I miss the snow and rain and thunder. I miss the more objects in Sims2.
    However. I tried playing sims 2 after playing sims3 And I found I've been spoiled by the graphics in sims3. So it's a bit of give and take. :rolleyes:

    It is indeed a different game!
    But at least we're not stuck with Ea's fugly textures for stuff!

    Well, i won't rush on 3, because i still haven't seen all what can be done with sim2 .
    3 looks promising. more personalizations, and more building options
