Hmmmmm, Just thinking here again, New game, higher price? lol. you know most of the users on this website has done nonthing and I do mean ABSOLUTELY NONTHING, but complain just about everyday, and every step of the way. Place yourself in the shoes of those developing and designing this game both the current and the game that everyone hopes that will be finally merged to become a gameplay experience much like Sims 2 or more. Not caring about the flame that will be hurled my way, If I was in charge of creating this game yes I WOULD charge more real life $$$ for the efforts of designing and the abuse hurled in my direction the last six months. What is all of this "stressing" anyway over a game you pay for. boy i'd love to be the fly on the wall of some of your children and know what they think of you and your emotional actions over a computer generated game. those who may or may not feel this affects you (wheather you care to want to believe it or stay in the state of denial?), let the game digress from the old state and progress into whatever shape or form if you will, the new game will come to be. now breathe, count to ten SLOWLY walk away, and come back when the game is ready at its new location. p.s. THIS would be a GREAT place to practice those "afk" skills that has been happening so much in TSO lol. OH!, and be kind to the devs and each other please???
