For those of you with the "pre-release trial", heres something to try..

Go to the graveyard and explore the catacombs. Select the "most dangerous" option. You will find 2 magic seeds.

What they do? Don't ask me. Maybe try planting them back at home?

New neighborhoods already!

Check out these new neighborhoods by Crazytex over at moreawsomethanyou!

"Four new starter homes, fresh genes, no non-CAS Sims (although they will move in)"

I've also been told each home has some "interesting" things going on to discover...

Download and save this file into your Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves folder and load "Fresh Mountain" from the main menu.

Well, I tried to add the EA RSS feed to the site, but it appears to be broken.

Am I missing something?

Sims 3 Leaked..

Well, we've all heard that Sims 3 retail was leaked. I'm not going to tell you how to find that, nor tell you that even if you do find/download/play it, you should certainly go buy it on the release date! Support the developers of the games we love!

However, I ran across a few add-ons that may be helpful, a new money trainer, which describes the new Simoleon strategy (and maybe a few hints on "optimizing" it :), a general pack (which I am told includes a TON of objects that didn't make it to the technical release) (Addon pack nuked by EA, i'll post it as soon as I can find a reliable link), and a censor patch..

Have fun!
