    I took this screen shot at EA Store. What do you all think of it?
     
  2. looks kinda like they had to come up with an idea quickly so they just recolored an existing item to satisfy the demands for having a 4th year gift.

    Me too. LOL Then I cried a little. [​IMG]
     
  5. That is absolutely nothing special. Its just like the gray & purple sign you can buy in Buy Mode except its been recolored and it says in small font, Happy 4th Year Anniversary. They had 1 year to make it...

    I describe it as a territorial marker. I had the same thought when I saw it. There were no interactions when you click on it.

    Actually I think they had over 2 years to make it.



    ....Wow.
     
  8. Hmmmm sorry guys, not very impressive. It would be so nice if they could get one of the CC Gurus to create something completely different, something that has never been seen before - that would be awesome!

    omg I sooooo second that lol... Does that thing DO anything? Or does it just sit there looking boring? An anniversary gift is only fun if it gives some type of reward - skill points, roasted marshmellows, etc. Isn't that the point of them? To reward players for their undying devotion for 4 years?

    Gee, so much for a Rejuvenator or Servo lol.... [​IMG]
     
  12. wow...that is so...ugly.

    It reminds me of a grave marker! Who died?
     
  14. you know whats funny, not a single dev will reply to this and explain anything lol. If they do, big kudos for coming out and explaning themselves on this pointless object.

    This is the one gift that I am not excited to get in the Amnesty... I might just delete it, lol... whats the point, its the same sign we can buy in a different color.

    Im not due for a four year gift yet, but if I was, I wouldnt be impressed.....Should we start a petition to change it? In saying that, we should offer a suggestion to replace it with another option...I believe in trying to find a solution not just highlighting a problem - anyone got any ideas and if so, upload a pic and lets look and put it to the devs! [​IMG]
     
  20. it just doesn't compare to the other anniversary gifts. It looks very armature.

    no wayyy that isnt the real gift ! is it seriously!???
     
  22. Yes its the real gift
     
  23. i have seen no confirmation from the Devs on this, so i am going to take it at face value and hope it is wrong lol. so far the best gift is the tree!

    Guest Guest

    ROFL Are you trying to blame me for making that? Next time you can catch EA Store open, go check it out. It has been there for a long time. I just kept forgetting to SS it.
     
  25. LOL no, i never said you did!! lol.. where is the EA Store?
     
  26. Guest

    Guest Guest

    In EA Land LOL it is named EA Store. I took that SS right when Unibrow left the property. Look up MaxisLuc or Unibrow that is where they live.

    Creativity, apparently.

    I'm at a loss of words. Even the re-hashed cannon was better than this.

    The devs announced that this was it (4th year gift, a plaque) a while back, so believe it.
     
  31. i knew it was going to be a plaque but i thought it would be nicer then that!

    Accept the 4th year gisft as is. And, move on.

    I guess, people can't be happy for what they have.

    Guest Guest

    Do a memorial or something. Here lies TSO. But we can't even write on it like you can the territorial markers. LOL make it a sign at least.
     
  36. Cruz Cavera

    Cruz Cavera Guest

    Well, that would make sense if we were in the Production Cities. Seeing that this is now EA Land. But.. yeah. I won't lay that [censored] out. Lmao.

    The one year anniversary item wasn't 'functional' either though, and that was our *very first ever* anniversary item, so I'm actually not shocked that this one isn't either, especially considering the massive project EAL/TC3 has been and the rapid pace they've had to do that in. Yes, they've been working on it for a year, but most of that year has been spent developing EAL/TC3 and dealing with bugs, manual moves, merges, etc. too, IIRC, considering that all started in March of last year, so we're looking at 11 months, at least.

    *shrugs* It's a gift, and I'm not gonna stare a gift horse in the mouth. Personally, if we pass the 'magic deadline' and don't get the final boom 90 day notice, then that's good enough for the 5 year anniversary item, IMO.
     
  43. It looks like we're going to be getting recolored objects for anniversary gifts from now on.... [​IMG]

    Even though may serve no purpose on the lot it will be like have the 1st "statues". It may have the same interactions as the pet statues do. Just in a tacky gold color. I think if they change at least the color it would do wonders.

    But me being me I would except it, celebrate the playing for those 4 yrs and move on. But of course that's just me! [​IMG]

    someone on post siad first yr gift the pet statue didnt do anything? well if click it you get fun out of it you can also make it bark or meow.it also gives fun to your pets needs. of course yr 2 gift the mystic tree will never be topted off never.camp fire yr 3 gift was nothing new just rehacked from sims 1 the offline game so sad thier. now this yr gift is really ugly doesnt do anything doesnt even give interactive in any way. I truly hope they were pulling your leg on this gift. keep in at the neer end of big things to come often people will put out false info to throw people off for instances big sci fi movie series like star wars and star trek both shows had aird over 5 different endings to thier shows to throw off spies and hackers.maybe Im just hopeing that this is the case thier its just something to throw us off, if its not its so horrible i wont waste my object limit on it not at all.so sad if this is indeed the 4yr gift.

    [/ QUOTE ]Since this object has not yet been issued out, and presumably the one at the EA Store is just a prototype, how do you know for sure that it doesn't do anything?
