This is great! I just saw the trailer over on YT from my subs box. I'm not too thrilled that it's practically the same thing as Nightlife, but I'm hoping, from what I've seen so far, that it gives us a lot more than Nightlife did: enough to make it worth buying. But, who am I kidding, I'll probably get it anyway.

When I saw the skyline in this pic I was so HAPPY. We get a big city to counter the Twinbrook from the last Ep and this is good news to many of us.
So far I love what I'm seeing about this one! Looks very promising.
More animations and raw possibility for our talented creator community is on the way! *insert happy dance*

I watched the video several times, but I don't see any subway. All I saw was one of those covered city bus stops that usually smell like pee and are covered in graffiti.

You mean the glass covers that bend down and go into the street?
|21st Jul 2010, 1:21 AM||#10|
That "covered bus stop" was leading underground. There were two in he exact same shot. Not sure if they are operational, but it would be a nice, small detail for poorer sims to get around. avoiding traffic and such (if it is included).
I want to see the new furniture that might be included. I get a feeling it will look sexy I also like the new low level stages that you can add a step to. 1 step. :p
|21st Jul 2010, 1:21 AM||#11|
I wonder what use subways would have
|21st Jul 2010, 1:24 AM||#12|

I wouldn't be surprised if they can be one, two, or three "stages" tall. That would be tall enough to allow sims on without clipping with the cieling, plus it'd give interesting deco/stairs/split level options.

Ok, I guess I saw it wrong. It's shown so quick so I just thought it was a bus stop. Do subways really look like that? I always thought they just looked like normal cement stairs that went underground. Of course, I don't live in a city and I've only been to Chicago a few times and I was in a car, so no riding the subway.
Where in the video is the elevator shaft I keep seeing mentioned? I couldn't spot anything like that. I'd be happy if there were elevators, though because they take up less room than stairs.
|21st Jul 2010, 1:27 AM||#14|
Subways are probably used (besides transport) to find gnomes. There was also a few things that came with each expansion pack:
A new set of Gnomes, A new Hydrangea and a New animal cut out. I wonder what they will be this time. Maybe a Disco Gnome, A purple Hydrangea, and a Pigeon :p
|21st Jul 2010, 1:29 AM||#15|
a) How we get to the city/downtown from our neighbourhoods.
b) A quick teleportation device to get around the the city instead of driving or walking
c) Useless decoration.
I'm getting probably A or A and B.
|21st Jul 2010, 1:32 AM||#16|
The elevator shaft is just a wall pattern (AFAIK). If the do add elevators, it would be nice to complement the penthouses :D
|21st Jul 2010, 1:37 AM||#17|
Depends. I guess the area we see is more modernly designed or newly renovated. In older areas it would probably be uncovered stairs leading into the ground. Where I live in Brisbane we don't have subways, though a few of our train stations are underground and they're accessed through malls. It just depends on the city.
|21st Jul 2010, 1:46 AM||#18|
True. Just hope it's not a decoration. However that means it's going to be a separate town with a loading screen which is a major turn off to me
And elevators? YES PLEASE
|21st Jul 2010, 1:55 AM||#19|
Watched the trailer again and you can see a vampire (I assume she is, anyway) in an alley watching people pass by.
She doesn't look like the sparkly kind, so here's hoping they're the more bloodthirsty violent ones we all love. :p
|21st Jul 2010, 1:59 AM||#20|
they didn't sparkle because it was night time. BUT, someone is a club was sparkling, or it appeared that way. All I know is I saw sparkles :p
|21st Jul 2010, 2:06 AM||#21|
I meant she doesn't look like the "I sparkle in the sunlight and watch you sleep kind in a faux romantic way" kind of vamp.
And we don't know if that was a vampire sparkling! Maybe a sim took some ecstasy? And Twilight vampires sparkle at day and the club was probably at night. Nobody goes to a club in daylight.

AGAIN with the "its a separated neighborhood" ... did Ambitions come with one?
This is NOT the Sims 2, only World Adventures come with those and they did bring a lot of issues with then, this place seems FAR too large to be a "downtown section", in fact ...
Notice the Llama Memorial Stadium? why ON EARTH it would have it if it was not a FULLY FUNCTIONAL
|21st Jul 2010, 2:12 AM||#23|
|21st Jul 2010, 2:15 AM||#24|
It's just a speculation.. Maybe they would split them up as some people simply can't run the open neighbourhood effectively on their computers?
I don't know. Neither do you. This is a thread to discuss the EP and that's what we are doing :/
|21st Jul 2010, 2:15 AM||#25|
So because Ambitions didn't come with a separate nighbourhood, Late Night won't?
If the city in the trailer is a separate neighbourhood and not an add-on like Downtown, does that mean EA expects us to add our own little city to the nearly full Riverview and Twinbrook? It would look out of place having penthouse apartments and clubs in farming communities.
And the Llama Memorial Stadium could either be filler decoration or workplaces for sims that live in the area (I'm assuming we can live in the penthouses), so they don't have to travel back and forwards to Sunset Valley or whatever.
