I just watched the preview video of the Sims 2 Seasons, here:
http://thesims2.ea.com/about/ep5_videos.php?movieID=1&play=hi

This looks like it could be the most fun expansion pack yet!

It also looks like the only weird voodoo they introduced with this expansion pack is the Wishing Well, a reward object. That's a very good thing, too!

I just might be an Early Acceptor, if not a First Acceptor, for this one! Grin

<chants I will not be an early adopter of the EP>

Greg, you do not want it until your favorite hacks have been updated. Period.

I just got my Seasons today... It, in my opinion, is the best sims ep... I love it!
I actually had trouble w/ this one though... (I NEVER have trouble w/ this game or anything)....
I decided to play in the new neighborhood.. and the fish wouldnt show in the ponds, the snow ans rain wouldnt show...
I was getting pretty mad.. Lol.. I know my graphics card is not listed as compatible, but my game actually looks really good! Almost as good as my desktop, which actually has a really good card...
But ... i just changed neighborhoods, back to ol' Veronaville... and it is working just fine... ? LOL.. just glad is is ok..

Thinking I wonder if there's a bug in the routines that create a new neighborhood.

Oh well, whatever it is, they'll fix it soon. smile

Gonna leave this one a while.
It took me so long to get game sorted out again after the last disaster (when I installed the EA patches for all the games), in fact I don't think I have all my downloads in yet.
Actually I am still in the alternate universe, haven't played Sims since - erm - whenever it was I installed Second Life.... so it won't hurt the game shop up the road to wait a little longer for my money. (Maybe I can even get it second hand or reduced in a month's time!)

I'm getting kinda worried about installing new stuff. I updated my graphics card drivers (nVidia GEForce 5200) and now my game is already running pretty slow. I think I'm going to need a new graphics card before I can handle any more expansion packs.

The game has also developed an odd quirk since updating the graphics card drivers: Edge scrolling doesn't seem to be working on the right-hand side of the window but it works everywhere else. Thinking

I bought Seasons today(3/1/07), but I'm waiting until my new graphics card arrives to put it on.

In my laptop .. it is a HP dv1420us.... got it last year.... It's graphics card, I don't know, just whatever was built into it:)
But it's not Nvidia or Ati or anything like that... My desktop has a good card, and the comparison between them both is nearly the same:)... But everything actually works great now! Just that one new neighborhood Maxis made that I wanted to play in, nothing worked in there, lol.. So I went back to my Sim and Dog in Veronaville and everything is fine.. nice snow, rain, even fish!

Maybe it was just my sim, but I had her fishing, and I'm not sure if it was because she was close to a tree... but she went to recast, and it seemed like the hook got caught and she then fell.. I thought that was soooo funny, because that happened to be like 7 times during 1 fishing trip! embarrassed

LOL Fishing is fun! Probably won't be able to do much until the baby is bigger, but I've not gotten into tying flies for my husband:) cheers

edit:

I looked it up....
laptop : Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family

desktop: Geforce Nvidia FX 5500 256mb

That's a neat thought! The boys can go fishing together! I really enjoyed going fishing with my brother when we were kids. We liked to paddle a canoe around, too.

Hmm... an nVidia GEForce FX 5500 must be 300 better than a 5200! I don't know 300 what, but at least the number is higher! Grin
