2.  Your sims actually grow old and die and have families.
3.  The "Life moment" concept.  Where each life moment reflects in the developmental personality of a sim.  In other words, if you abuse your young sim odds are they will grow up to be messed up in the head.
How utterly innovative!
Are they going to rename them to "Norns", too? [/evil]

There have been Tamagochi's, Life Game and tens of other games about life (there was Alter Ego in cbm and Little Computer People too). The Sims have new and fun way to see and do things. Nowadays there is too little games with thought brought to adult audience.
Random ramblings and furious feminine novels per versatility.

An online Sims game will make people who play it try harder, cause you're not just competing against the AI, but you're interacting with other people (REAL people, WOW).

Not only that, but the people who get you money by coming to visit your house are actually real live people as well.  There are no computer AI's in the game.

Unfortunatley it's not going as well as Maxis has hoped, thus the giving it away.  *shrugs*  I don't have a credit card so even if I did like it I couldn't play.

Heh, finally ;)
What became of them guys anyway? Cyberlife.co.uk seems to be down, and I can't really find anything else that looks official anymore...

Well, I know that it still seems to be popular for PS2 and the worlds and different species seem endless for PS2.

I have the pc versions and haven't played  for a while. I have a couple of links that you may have seen already:

http://www.creaturescommunity.com/

Then there's the Creatures Developer Resource, these people made some awesome free downloads that can be used with the first 2 versions.  

"Tutorials that take you through the creation and modification of new brain lobes using the Cyberlife Genetics Kit. These tutorials are for Creatures 1 but the same principles apply to Creatures 2."

They last updated their site on 2/18/03...but the site is staying up indefinitely and has all kinds of info and cool downloads. Also has a links page to communities that are still active in producing new creatures and using C3.  :)

This game rocks, it's a new mmorpg that's in beta right now. Awesome game as long as you don't mind that half of it is in korean ;) There's an en english patch for it though...and a couple other languages.

Because I don't have a credit card and never will?


BTW, I beleive the sims nd a few other MMOLRPGS sell what amounts to prepaid phone cards for thier games.  I know that Anarchy Online does.

As long as it's in Beta, I haven't so far needed a credit card.

Well, there's also this little problem.  Two actually.  One will be taken care of soon, but the other still remains.

One, I'm on a 56k, downloading a 100 meg client is a pain. (trust me, I know.  I did the Asheron's call beta.)

Second, My computer is a bit behind the times in the graphic card department.  I need to upgrade.

Yep, I understand ;)
I used 56k for a couple of years.
And, I also learned how to build my own computer, so even thought it's not top of the line (by this weeks standards, lol) it's still good 'nuff to handle todays games...so far!  :D But probably not for long... :-\
