    Returning player here.

    A few questions:
    1. Have they updated the graphics at all?
    2. Do they plan to upgrade the graphics and if so, to what level (sims 2 quality?)
    3. Have they already updated some graphics and if so, do I have to join a certain city (server) to see them?

    Thank you for answers!

    I know they are updating the graphics I think they have started a little bit lol not 100% sure on that though.
     
  3. They are just about to update the graphics in TC3-test game mode. The graphics will be Sims 2 graphics, from what I have read.

    <font color="red"> Its in the works, several of the updates have been to prepare for the coming graphics changes. </font>

    2. Do they plan to upgrade the graphics and if so, to what level (sims 2 quality?)

    <font color="red"> Yes to TS2 graphics. </font>

    3. Have they already updated some graphics and if so, do I have to join a certain city (server) to see them?

    <font color="red"> Nothing is visible so far. You can login to TC3-test if you see a colored worm on the maxis screen then your card is fine for the future graphics updates. If you dont see it or you get an error message you may need to update to DirectX 9 or you might get a message that your card doesnt support pixel shader 2.0. There is a list of graphics cards that are known to work at www.game-blueprints.com </font>

    Thank you for the fast replies! wow

    I had forgotten how awesome the TSO community is.

    (and 'omg' at them updating the graphics, *just* what this game needs)

    VERY excited at this.

    Thanks again!

    What is the difference between Test Center 3 and Test Center 3-Test?

    Thanks!

    TC3-test is just to test your graphics card. [​IMG]

    Say, I had a similar question too about the number of floors.

    If the graphics become Sims 2 quality, will there be more floors too? That would really be awesome!

    There was this question in Luc's blog post clicky

    If we increase the number of Sims, it would make sense to enable more floors in the lots. How many floors do you think is the maximum number of floors we should have?

    It took me a few minutes to find this and for a minute I got scared that it was just a dream! [​IMG]
