Of course it was going to be true University was one of most sold sims 2 expansion so they would get more loot for making something that should be put with the base game I dont really like EA for that reason. University was going to be on their list for games to be :D

Both Twallan and Pescado certainly have a loooot of work ahead of them - and I'm so grateful that neither has abandoned their mods, because I think I would die. X__X

I'm really excited for all the new expansions - and I'm hoping that there are more OFB-type interactions included in Island Paradise! I'm hopeful. Smile Resort is a broad term - and there could be a host of features we're not aware of yet, so yay. I know that some are upset about the subhood, but I'm honestly still so excited. I wonder if mods will make it possible for a certain number of your neighbors to go to uni with you? And, of course, the new objects/lot types can most likely be placed in a base world - just like how the World Adventures lot-types/features are easily placed and incorporated in a home world. Smile

Yeah, people on MTS posts I'm watching are upset about the subhoods. I could care less. It's like a vacation world. My mom still looks the same since I last saw her, so yeah.

EA is getting more adult now. Nude posing and streaking!

I'm excited about the "renting out rooms" part. I can make my dream apartment!!

I hope the future pack is related to Star Trek. That would be awesome.

The streaking was one of my favorite things about TS2 University. shame I really want to get this EP, but I'm not sure my poor computer can handle it. Looks like it's time to upgrade.

the Island Paradise dropping anchor this June is The Sims 3 Island Paradise, an expansion pack filled with adventure, exploration and a world of new discoveries set on the sunny shores and beneath the glistening water of a tropical paradise. For the first time ever, Sims can take the helm of fully customizable houseboats and set sail in search of uncharted islands, create, own and manage resorts or discover what lies beneath the ocean through the new skill-based scuba diving and snorkeling activities.

The Sims 3 Island Paradise introduces all new ways to build – whether it’s a lavish five-star resort, a bungalow on the water or a houseboat that can travel the seas. Players can create their own idea of island paradise for their Sims in this new expansion pack and embark on an unforgettable journey.

why would there need to be a stage for Uni, when we have had YAs since the base game? The only reason that there was a stage for uni for sims 2, since teens went straight to adults without going to Uni

LOL - I don't know MadameLee. I don't decide such things.
I have, however, read that there will be an age category added but haven't heard if it was official or just a rumor.

They're not adding another age category,

But, sims who attend university do get the bonus of having an extra trait slot. (6 instead of 5).

They mentioned it in the survey - but I wonder if they will implement it in the actual game? It would be cool for teens to go - but since graduating from high school is an event that occurs after teens age up to YA, this would have to be changed, or, like you mentioned, allow early college attendance for a prodigy/gifted student.

No worries Ameenah. lol!

Here's that link: http://flygirlgamers.com/2013/01/08/sims-3-university-life/

I hadn't heard adults and elderly can go to college too. I like that - it makes it more realistic. And the child prodigy idea sounds fun too. I hope it's true.

Do you guys think YAs and adults will be able to get pregant and raise kids while attending college? Other people think YAs wouldn't be since they are techinally still a teen but doesn't YA cover 18-35 or something? Well Adults cover 40-45, and Elders supposedly cover 50+

I would assume they would be able to. They can have kids now - why would they change it just because they are in college? Though, I think if the student is living in a dorm it'd be out of the question. So much more is possible with TS3, it's hard to gauge how they will set it up but it makes sense to me that YA's would be able to continue having kids while in school.

This got posted today on EA . . . . . . . I am so excited. I can't wait for this expansion:
http://www.thesims3.com/community/blog.html?blogid=479640

The Sims 3 Community Blog

Irresistible to Socially Awkward: A Social Life for Every Sim!

Love it, hate it, want one, avoid one, but everyone’s got one — a social life that is. While making the grade is important, The Sims 3 University Life experience is about more than just what you learn in the classroom! It’s about the life your Sim leads outside it. Your Sim can pursue any social life they dream of – from the most popular Sim on campus or the nerdy bookworm that lives in the library. No matter if your Sim is a little socially awkward or completely irresistible they can have a fun and memorable university experience!

Introduced in The Sims 3 University Life are three new social groups: the Jocks, Rebels and Nerds. Your Sim can gain influence with as many of these groups they desire – they are not limited to befriending just one! As your Sim progresses up the social ladder within each group, they will unlock rewards that will make all the effort on their part worth it.

But what are the social groups like? Let me tell you…

Jocks are the Sims who play to win, whether it’s a popularity contest or a match on the Plink Plonk Tennis Table. It’s no wonder that Jocks tend to hang out at B’s Bowlarama where they can work on getting strikes and not striking out with the cute Sim eying their sweet bowling moves. Probably not a surprise either that Jocks throw some of the best parties on campus.

Rebels enjoy going above and beyond the expected and then taking it one step further. Rebels are the Sims who will tag a wall on campus and then add herbs to the bonfire at a local party. You can find Rebels hanging out at The Grotto; a cool place where a Sim can enjoy a game of pool, work on their artistic skills, or savor an organic brew from the Barista Bar.

And last, but definitely not least, are the Nerds. Nerds love to play video games, perform research, win trivia challenges, and aren’t afraid to berate other Sims for their ignorance. Keith’s Komics is the ideal hangout for a Nerd as it has all the lots of hobbies for Nerds to enjoy including, computers, arcade machines and comics, of course!

Keeping up with all the social influence your Sim gains is simple! With a few clicks on their new smart phone they’ll be completely in the know. Just hit ‘Check Social Groups’ to see their current status. But that isn’t the only cool thing the smart phone can do. Maybe your Sim is feeling bold and flirty, then sending a secret admirer text might just catch that special someone’s attention. Alternately, if another Sim has treated you poorly and you want to give them a piece of your mind then go ahead and send them an insulting text. Also if you Sim is looking to cut loose and be single, they can send a break up text to their romantic interest. Additionally, if your Sim is more visual then they might appreciate the new ways to take photos. Now your Sim can take self-portrait snapshots with another Sim, and can even sneak in a romantic kissy photo. These are just a few examples of what your new smart phone can do!

Even outside of the social groups there are a huge variety of social activities and interactions your Sim can partake in. For example, what would university be without parties!? To spice things up, we’ve added two new party types in the mix: Juice Keggers and Bonfires. Parties are a great time to meet new Sims, and if there is a Sim you want to get a little closer to, then go ahead and give them a Heat of the Moment Kiss. There are plenty of other new kiss interactions as well, such as Juiced Kiss and Cinnamon Kiss. These only scratch the surface of the new romantic options that are available in The Sims 3 University Life.

If your Sim isn’t into partying, then there are still plenty of other activities to do. From playing a collegiate sport to posing nude for figure class to becoming a medical test subject and holding a protest, your Sims will find an all-new world to explore! There are also great new social things to do that will contribute to building skills as well. With the new sketchbook object you can ask another Sim to pose for you (even pose nude)! Plus, there is much, much more! But we’ll leave the rest up to you to explore for yourself!

In The Sims 3 University Life, each Sim can build a unique social life that suits their needs. Just don’t get blinded by the awesomeness of your Sim’s social life and forget to send them to class. It’s true that a dream job can be landed based purely on social activities but receiving good grades has its equal advantages!

Happy balancing!
