Schweighsr (Nov 6, 2003 6:37:48 PM)
Tell us about swimming pools, please. Can we build round or curved swimming pools? Can Sims interact with each other or play water games in swimming pools?

MaxisLuc (Nov 6, 2003 6:37:48 PM)
no curves. nice water though

allecher (Nov 6, 2003 6:37:57 PM)

Yes they will notice.

ReflectedSky (Nov 6, 2003 6:38:30 PM)

Professor Cumquatt (Nov 6, 2003 6:58:09 PM)
Hey Luc, will there be more advanced personality controls? (No offense Maxis guys, but the personality thing in the Sims wasn’t quite up to my expectations) After all, what’s on the inside is what counts.

MaxisLuc (Nov 6, 2003 6:58:09 PM)
not more controls, but better defined and more extreme

kateko (Nov 6, 2003 6:58:39 PM)
