Just read that Twallan will be updating his mods tonight.

I just d/led this patch and now my game won't load at all! It gets just past the splash screen which I cancel and then I get a msg that "sims 3 has stopped working" and "close program."

Ok, I just renamed my EA folder and the game loaded. I think I know what I did. :( Problem solved for me.

I'd love to grab this patch thanks to a list I found over at another site. I'm interested in the undocumented list more than the official EA patch notes. But I'll wait until the dust settles. Sonshine, can you confirm that undocumented list?

I am hesitant about downloading the patch. I think I will watch the forums for a while on more feedback. Please be aware that EA completely changed their 'My Page" on The Sims 3 site to accomodate Showtime and it has been a disaster especially with the 'wall' which is a necessary part of the social aspect of Showtime and people are being swamped with pages and pages of unwanted messages from total strangers. It appears to me that that capability is also introduced into our games when we install the 1.31 patch.

Hi Lisfyre! Unfortunately, I can't give any unofficial documentation. I can only give what the game gives. I didn't save it so, I don't know what it said. I do know though, that it prompts you to be online so that you can "share" w/others. I'm not sure what I think of that yet. I've not tried it.

Edit: As for what I did, I d/led the patch when I was very tired and not thinking clearly and didn't remove my mods folder. :/ Now I have to re d/l the cfg resource file. :(

Glad to see you do need to log in manually. I've been reading other forums and apparently some people are getting logged in automatically. Something to look out for. Thanks!!

there is also a new tab in the options menu that is specifically for online. You can change privacy settings etc. But I just don't log on - so no problem.

I did notice all the new "veggie" recipes and the availability of tofu in the grocery store. Although I am not planning to use the social portion much, it doesn't seem to be as bad as some people seem to think it is. (At least as far as the patch is concerned, who knows what we will see with the full EP) I am a little irritated that you can now NEVER close the message box in the top right completely. It can still be minimized, but now there is a tab on it where you can post messages and that is always there.

The achievements are a nice addition. I like to be able to earn things through the course of the game and some of them are fairly challenging. I noticed a number of them require a sim in a specific job position to do a certain action, like there is one where you have to become a Master Thief on the Criminal career path and then have your Master Thief steal candy from 30 babies. There are only 51 of them in the new patch, but supposedly there will be new ones released each week and the Showtime info states that there will be "hundreds" available from the start with the EP.

The changes are definitely enough to make your mods go all wonky though, so make sure you take them out and get updates before using them. I accidentally left my no censor mod in and the whole game went crazy, everything from not being able to complete opporunities, to members of my families being unselectable, and all other kinds of craziness. And that was the only mod I had in!

Also, I am really happy that they finally made it possible to assign makeup by outfit like you can with the hairstyles. I never thought it would be something I would use, but now that it's there I like it a lot. I guess I didn't realize how much I would like my sim to be nicely made up in formalwear without looking like a fool when she was in her pajamas!
