I Have Some Questions Please

Discussion in 'EA Land/The Sims Online Stratics Forums' started by imported_Brownie, Mar 10, 2008.

  1. I have read through the multitude of post, but i am unclear about some things.

    1. I understand that the amnesty program is based on entitlement days, which consist of the days I actually paid for. My question is, moving forward, AFTER AMNESTY, are skill locks for all newly created sims based on paid account days or the regular way of starting with 20, then add every 21 days. The reason I ask is, I wanted to understand if I retired a sim and recreated, would I start with 20 or whatever the ACCOUNT was entitled too. I am asking about skill locks only, of course I understand this would not include gifts/objects as those could be transferred.


    2. Will we ever get to a point where we can change the heads of our sims? This would really eliminate the need to recreate (at least for me) and therefore we wouldnt loose the skill points we had earned. Sometimes you just get sick of looking at the same old face - lol

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    I believe it has been stated that in the future locks will be reworked to be based on entitlement days.

    If we get this feature, I wouldn't expect it for a long time. (ie. after the merges are done, amnesty, bug fixes, 4th and 5th year gifts...)

    1. So I assume your response to my question is yes, if I create a new sim it would start with say, 54 locks, based on the age of the account?

    2. I believe my question was asking if it was even a possibility. I know that it wouldn't be implemented in the near future as l am well aware of the time consuming matters at hand.

    I believe Sindran is correct on the amnesty question. My understanding is that as long as the account is active before deadline, then from that point forward all skill locks for any sim on that account will be based on entitlement days, not sim age as it has been in the past. It's also my understanding though, that if you *don't* reinstate the account before the amnesty deadline, that this isn't the case....which makes sense because if that's not true then what would be the point of setting a deadline at all. I've also heard that one day in the future, all skill locks will be given out according to account age, so I'm a little unclear myself as to why the deadline is so important, or even necessary [​IMG]

    according to parizad in the town hall meeting i just left, she cannot commit to the skill locks. She said, maybe, probably, hopefully and a few other non-committal terms. They are still working on them. I have no idea what that means but then again I often have no idea what the "answers" mean that are often given.
     
  6. Did anyone else happen to notice a couple day ago Lee's head in game changed and he has blue hair, which he didn't have in the beginning. I only have 1 of his sims bookmarked, I know that sim changed heads.....

    So I would say the possibility is high, maybe at a cost tho...
    When would this happen? No clue.
     
  7. Thank you all fOr your info, I guess as with a lot of things, we will know more when the dust settles:) I appreciate all of your efforts to answer my questions. Just so you know they were just curiosities, nothing I felt was pressing, just wanted to know:)

    You are quite write Qute. Perhaps Lee was testing to see if it'd be possible. [​IMG]
