    Both a super natural EP and a Weather/Aliens EP? IMO, the end of The Sims 3 is near!

    The Stuff Packs listed has been asked before right? I hope this really is legit

    It might be, but I think ending the sims 3 with these EP’s would be a blast.
    I’m actually looking forward for TS4 already.

  5. If it’s real (I tend not to trust The Sims Wiki rumours), this is easily the best Sims-related news in a long time. The wait’s going to be painful, especially considering the next two stuff packs and the magic EP don’t seem that interesting to me.

    I wonder how exactly the ocean swimming will be done, I figured we would have to wait for a new base game to get that feature back. Kite flying and slow dancing are awesome. Thank goodness the diving board and slide won’t be something we have to buy through the store. The festivals sound like a really great new addition to mix up an old theme, just like horses with Pets.

    I know this guy that did the same survey an hour or so ago. Can’t say who, but this is a real gaming survey. Similar to what we had before that mentioned Katy Perry, candy and more.

    Good to hear! My faith in The Sims has been restored a bit.

    Awesome!!! Aliens, weather, and blueprint building!

    This looks absolutely incredible! For once EA are doing something right!!!

    If this is going to be the 8th Expansion Pack, then it might rekindle my romance with The Sims 3, just for one last hurrah!

    Christmas is the one holiday I’ve always wanted in The Sims 3, please EA, make this EP to save TS3!

  11. Alex says:

    Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow!!!

    Oh please please please be true!!

    *heads off to try and calm self down*

    This sounds absolutely AMAZING if true!! I really hope it is!

  12. Jonny says:

    I’ve always wanted to see my neighbourhood covered in snow and Christmas lights. Please EA, include Christmas lights.

  13. Spon1Player says:

    EA TAKE MY MONEY. Shame it’s EP8, aka, near the end – ALREADY. So we’ll get that in 2013 (EP8)

    I wish it was EP7, would be so fun to have for xmas.

  14. marrecar says:

    Connecting these “clues” with previous hints of supernatural and weather-ish expansion, this might be true… If they are going to implement all this features in the next EP, I’m going to be extremely happy!!!
    Swimming in ocean, having neighbourhood festival things, aliens… ZOMG, they better do this…

  15. Chris says:

    To be honest though… if it is drawing a close to The Sims 3, it’s a pity they waited till the very last Expansion Pack to introduce weather! :( But at least they’re finally doing it! Sounds better than TS2 Seasons and better than the rest of The Sims 3’s expansion packs. :)

  16. Janna says:

    This makes me want to play Sims 3 so bad! Shame my computer is a bit wonky these days and can’t take the game very well UHG.

    Anyway, I totally can’t wait for this! While reading, I got the same feeling I got when browsing and playing TS1, there’s just so much they can do with this, I hope they won’t f*** it! :3

  17. funnykid says:

    What would be funny is if this is the last EP and in 6 month’s time TS4 is released without weather.

    Haha! Well, however they do it, I hope TS4 is better handled when / if it comes out.

    I don’t care if it starts with weather (although it would be smart for them to put it in the next base game, as it’s something basic of a world, but I guess that’s why I don’t expect much of them in those lines xD). I just want it to be good and for them to handle better the patching, or better yet, finish the game, then release it to the world without having to patch the patch that patches a patch which, hopefully, will patch the latest patch? D:

    Is there a link to the actual survey? like the last one of that nature… and of course they’d save the most requested things for last. i hope weather and private schools and college make into s4’s base game.

    I’m with you. But if all those features are supossed to be in one EP, I have to agree with theblackscorpion on that it seems like they are rushing the end of TS3. And that only has to mean that they are rushing TS4 (aka, tons of bugs!).
    I don’t have many hopes, but if only they would come up with a finished game, I’m good. If I only think of installing TS3 again, I have to go to therapy first.

    Well it’s obvious, if they plan on ever releasing Sims 4, that it won’t have weather, pets or anything special… They have their scheme, make a game with cool graphics, basic stuff, sell… Then, open a site where you will buy stuff for Sims… At the same time, announce an EP that will enhance the game just a bit so it would be more fun… Then some ok SP, then boring EP, boring SP, cool EP, boring SP, and so on… Until they make Sims both realistic and freakishly weird way that it’s fun, and make money… Then all over again… But somewhere between EPs and SPs make a standalone game, like Stories and Medieveal.

    Omgomgomg…please don’t let this be a rumor…so, so excited to read this. *back to squealing*

    This is the site. You have to sign up and once complete, usually the first survey available is this one. http://www.vgmarketsurveys.com/

  25. jesse james says:

    Thank tbs, this is one thing my phone does without issues, lol. I voted on the last one too.

  26. djd703 says:

    weather and aliens were the two things that I felt should have been in the base games.

  27. Dentface says:

    Wow! I dont imagine all this in 1 EP. I’m expecting at least the Aliens to be in the Magic EP 7.

  28. Jeff says:

    Let’s hope EA doesn’t sell out to that Korean company before this happens

  29. Sarah says:

    Is it sad that the only two things I absorbed from those photos was “diving board” and “aliens”? Seasons would be great and all, but I really wish the diving board and aliens had been in the base game from the beginning.

  30. nick21989 says:

    One of the first expansions that actually sounds complete and worth the money they charge for them!

  31. Simfan28 says:

    I don’t like aliens but since, aliens were never truly playable in the Sims (aliens in Sims 2 don’t have special ability), I’m ok with it. It’s don’t sound like a remake of a creature for me.

    But, EA need to do a great EP with seasons. I want to see a deep EP with game mechanisms that add something to the gameplay.
