Issue 117 Wednesday 29th August 2012

It appears the previous issue arrived days after I "sent" it, so if you missed the live broadcast mentioned in it as a result, I apologize. Normally they arrive within two or three hours, so I did not expect this to happen. It's just typical that if it did happen, it would be with an issue containing time sensitive information. You can at least watch a recording in this issue.

SimGuruHydra: Will children inherit the same werewolf form as their parents? Normally facial structure, hair color and eye color are passed down. Will a child’s features be a mash-up of the parents?

Producer Explains Summer In Seasons In New Blog Entry

The Sims 3 Seasons associate producer Charles Murakami has posted a new blog entry on TheSims3.com explaining summer:

In The Sims 3 Seasons, the temperature of the world can change over the course of the day, transitioning from a cool, brisk morning to a scorcher by noontime. If your Sim is out in the heat for too long, they’ll start to sweat and may even spontaneously combust! But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to keep cool. Wearing swimwear, holding a parasol, eating an ice cream or just heading indoors are some of the ways you can keep your Sim from overheating.

GamesRadar Gets An Interview With Seasons Producer, Plus Exclusive Screenshots

GamesRadar has posted an interview with The Sims 3 Seasons associate producer Ryan Vaughan, focusing on spring and summer:

GR: Are there any fun new items available in the summer?

RV: One of the fun new objects in The Sims 3 Seasons is the diving board, which allows Sims to make a splash at the pool, whether plunging in with a big cannon ball or slipping into the water with an elegant swan dive. Also new for summer are pool loungers. Sims can take these into their pools or the ocean. Sims can relax on them by floating or reading a book. Additionally new fireworks have been added. These can be used year round but are especially fun for Sims to ignite during the warm summer nights. The additions include firecrackers, spinners, rockets, smoke bombs and more!

They’ve also got some exclusive new screenshots, which you can also view on the game page if you prefer.
