this is the most comprehensive review of ts3 that I have read, by kate at parsimonious: http://www.parsimonious.org/rev/index.shtml

it confirms that custom patterns will not be able to be imported into the game. there is also no homecrafter equivalent that allows you to create custom walls, floors, and terrain paints. bodyshop will also be very complicated to make cc for, which to be honest, i did expect with the new bodyshop sliders. eventually the community will most likely mod the game to allow cc, but it will not be possible out of the box.

my problem with the create a style system is that it's almost like floodfill, it's sufficient for some things like recoloring a cushion quickly, but applying a uniform pattern over a uniform area can only get you so far and ends up lacking details.

basically i dislike the aesthetic of ts3, but i am excited about many gameplay features. I am disappointed that it got delayed because I was looking forward to seeing the reception it would get in the sims community, and maybe get it for myself. I still would have a hard time letting go of sims 2...i would probably continue to play it, even if i got sims 3.
