I saw that video for TS3 and noticed it wasn't exacly like my games with all of the collection installed and the empty towns as I use custom worlds that get populated slowly over time.I'm also playing very heavily Modded and can play it rotationally like TS2.

Well this isn't about sims 3 beta but I remember seeing TS2 sims having separate fingers in the trailer. Actually, it was this moment precisely: https://youtu.be/NkxO2hrQFWA?t=10

And when I got the game, no separate fingers! But then years later when I got a laptop, they finally got their fingers which I think was due to a better graphics card.

Hhm, someone has made a vid of all the trailers starting from sims 1 base game till sims 4. It is nearly 1,5h long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCJfst8H4b0

Can't say I have played all of them cos I never cared for stuff packs. Maybe we have a few true fans here :D

Of course, it wouldn't have made much sense for that to have been an in-engine screenshot. Especially for an unfinished game engine, and especially in 2008. If it walks and talks like a render, it's probably a render.

For some reason I ended up on the official sims 3 webpage.

Anyone recognise that screenshot? https://www.ea.com/en-au/games/the-sims/the-sims-3 (scroll down)

By now you would think they had enough actual game footage to put on their page.

edit: Oh god how did I end up on their Instagram? You will cringe

The page header is a promotional render, I think they outsource their promo material so it was probably done by another studio. The first "screenshot" on the picture slider is a pre-release render depicting an early version of Sunset Valley.

Fun fact: Clothing stores were planned, but didn't manage to end up in the final release.

But remember the clothing stores in Sims2 where you click to go to the clothing store, wait through the (non-interactive) loading screen for 10 minutes while the lot loads, send your sim to the lot to buy the clothing (oh, don't forget another loading screen if the clothing store is not in the same sub-hood or base neighborhood as the lot you are living in.) then go back home where despite your sim's motives all having been dropped by the trip they arrive back home with no time having passed at home. (And remember: more loading screens to go back home.) This means that you basically spend about half an hour or more of real time to essentially render your sim useless for the rest of the day just to get a change of clothes. This was not popular. I can easily understand why they left them out.

Yes, but.....none of that would happen in TS3. Clothing stores or not.

"Didn't make the final cut"

As in "Why are you wasting time adding clothing stores when you know that nobody likes them? " I can still think of at least 3 mods that allowed a sim to get new clothes without having to go shopping, which means that back then there was probably more than that. EA does pay attention. They may learn the wrong lesson from it, but they do notice.

I also remember that there was a video of someone running around the open neighborhood before breakfast that had a few people (including me) commenting that they hoped this was not just an example of weird routing... Even then we had learned that EA is really good at making something sound much more promising than it turns out to be. Open neighborhoods still had to prove themselves.

Nobody likes them? I don't know about that. It added a lot to TS2 in my opinion, and it's a thing that I really miss in TS3. I don't like the idea of free clothes for everyone and being able to switch between outfits anytime, anywhere.

Or do you just miss the questionable dressing booths?

I didn't care for clothes shopping other than having H&M store to run for my sims. It was good fun.

I immediately set about editing all of the clothing stores and switched that booth out for the more expensive (but camera-free) one. Kill that booth with fire!

At the time I didn't think nothing of those booths, but now
