PostSubject: So no OFB at all?   Tue Nov 20, 2012 1:17 am

I remember thinking when the Sims 3 came out how one of the Ep's I missed most was OFB and I was anxiously awaiting a Sms 3 version.
But then they kind of gave a OFB like gameplay..with the cash registers, and consignment stores..but still not OFB. Just wondering.. is this it? How many Ep's were EA planning to have in all?
I guess part of the disappointment is also in the clubs. The way not many people show up and they close so early.
Most of my own clubs are marked as "big parks".LOL Just to get people in.
I do wish I could run a "club" that was filled. Or run my own store, club etc...hiring people and all... I miss that.
I don't have Showtime. Has that added anything to the community lots?

I agree OFB was my fav that's why i did my challenges, when I first played a firefighter in ambitions I was so hyped then he got there and the other firefighters did nothing lol they didn't even pretend to work and my firefighter was left to do everything himself I was sorely disappointed ROFL , it's mostly rumors about how many and which packs are coming out on the recent vids they hint at university but don't know about OFB, showtime seemed like an expansion for late night to me lol I so hope they at least put in a system similar to OFB use to love whipping employees into shape GetBusy cheers Ha HA

I love playing OFB as well. Lots of fun trying to get 5 top 10 businesses. It would be different in Sims 3 though. They would got home at night dog tired and it would actually be night. LM your challenges are kinda like OFB.

I kind of felt the same way, LMFAO. I gave up on my firefighter after he reached his Lifetime Wish because it was so. freaking. boring. doing the exact same thing day in and day out. Then I completed the private investigator and had enough. The consignment store isn't really the same as opening up a business on your home lot.

Unfortunately Ambitions may be the closest thing we'll get to OFB. But then again EA released Showtime when we already had Night Life. Ugh, there's a part of me still hoping this University rumor is false so we can get a proper EP. And then after that it's most likely time for The Sims 4.

Yeah ambitions was another disappointment. I don't know why EA thought everyone would love doing the same thing every day,over and over. Such a poor execution of a great idea.
I was confused by why they put out Showtime..I was like don't we have this already?..where's OFB!

I didn't care for OFB very much, but University was my favorite expansion in Sims 2 and would love to see it updated for Sims 3.

One thing I really, really miss is the vacations that were done way way way back in Sims 1! I want campgrounds! Beaches! Those vacations were fun rather leisure time than running around collecting turquoise in Egypt.

I still miss OFB, working restaurants, and working hotels. I saw that University supposedly is what we are getting next. I would rather have had the other items too, or at least before a university EP.

I absolutely agree - how sad we are not in charge:)

I keep wondering how they will do university. They will have to do a lot more than just add a university lot and some new gameplay. I wonder if they might do something like they did with the WA worlds, making a new world that is a university town and then we send the sim there. And then is the rest of the family frozen while the sim is there? I hope we do not get another age group and the YA is used.

It will be very interesting to see how they do it. But I would rather have had the other things first.

I don't want University simply because Generations offered us boarding schools. I could pop out a hundred kids and ship them all off until they returned as young adults. If University came out wouldn't that mean young adults would have to miss out on getting a headstart on their careers? I find it hard enough to reach level 10 in anything on a normal lifespan.

OH see I haven't gotten Generations yet. Didn't know about the Boarding schools. Interesting. I would hope it's something that you can play the Sim at school.
Yeah that's true if they were away in school what would that do to their careers? Unless somehow they could apply their schooling to their career experience.
I kind of like the new world idea where you'd go off to school for a while. If then it was the same as WA where you wouldn't age and your family froze that would fix the career problem. It'll be interesting to see what they do..If they do it right.

I don't use boarding schools even when my house is bursting at the seams. Why have the kids if they are just going to be shipped off?

I would also hope University would be like World Adventures. Go off to Uni, come home to a mostly unchanged family.

Maybe you can play them concurrently. Maybe the University will be a building or rabbit hole in their home town.

As for OFB, I spent the whole day yesterday playing Sims 2 and a Sim who had a business away from home and a home business. That was fun.

I am totally guessing about all of this, but it seems to me that they will have to do some sort of new location as folks will be very irritated if just a new RH or 2, and also, so many players are playing hoods that already do not have room for more required lots. One of the things that was fun about 2 was the sororities and fraternities. I can't imagine not living on campus, but who knows? But I do not want my main family changing in SP while someone is gone.

It will be very interesting to see how they do it. I am sure I will be hooked and get it no matter what! eeek Laughing

And if they play as YA then they should start careers at higher levels depending on majors IMO. I also have a hard time getting some sims to the top of their careers as it is. Many elders have worked many years with life fruit to max them in my family, especially as they get so much, too much to me, time off at the higher levels.
