By tweaking the URL of Midnight Hollow’s Preview Photo, we are able to uncover the “Gold Edition” preview screen. I wonder what’s inside…

    Disclaimer: That is NOT an actual Carousel! Thought I’d clarify before people start posting it is! >_<

    1. SIMplyTheBest says:

      It may not be a real carousel, BUT I feel dumb for never having thought of making it like that :(
      Columns, roof, spring riders,platform…So simple, yet HOW can I never have thought of it that way? No wonder I never made my boardwalk/carousel look right :(

      But NOW I think the silly stuff inKaty Perry Sweet Treats might be good (toy/candy store?)
      And yeah, I know, some of you still hate & bash it to no end.
      But I think some of it had uses, & esp for shops/boardwalks. You ever see a boardwalk without candy/cotton candy/icecream? :P

      1. freakinbunny says:

        I loved the Katy Perry ST I use it all the time! Then again my household are awesome :)

        1. SIMplyTheBest says:

          OMG! REALLY?? I am not alone for thinking it has some uses! YAY!
          Yes, I think the clothes in KPST are gawdy & a bit lewd. But a few clothing pieces are ok.
          What I liked most was stuff for a candy store, boardwalk, AND some of it CAN be used in homes!
          I love the 3-picture framing for kitchens a lot. If course its all pics of desserts that go with coffee. I think its the only close up of food pics for the game & its actually CLEAR, not blurry! :D
          And candy jars on a counter or coffee table…there are things here and there that are useful. You just cant use it all at once unless you are making CandyLand or a sweets store :D
          I am curious how you decorate with it. Do you have any pics online for your SIms homes?
          Maybe I should upload some of my pics somewhere. I collected so many screenshots since Sims 1, 2, & 3..(so much work, hahaha!)

          1. freakinbunny says:

            I love making like the candy store with comic book rack and icecream!!!! OMG love it soooo much! and with the new world yes it will be complete cuteness/dark! I love this town for once my sims will look normal :P I always like to have a normal Sim like in The Monsters show or Dark Shadows (old tv shows!) they had the normal mixed with the crazy! amazing :)with movie stuff it makes it better!

      Awww, that’s a shame – I had requested a carousel on the forums when they were polling the fans about premium content ideas. For a second I thought they had actually used my suggestion. Alas, back to reality.

      1. freakinbunny says:

        well it could be one maybe the the middle is the only part of the Premium content and they had to make the rest of it.. could be dream big!

    3. Damienf519 says:


      Its probably not, but I’m not sure. It would be nice through if it was.

    4. ChilledHillarity says:

      Actually I blew up the image to 170% and the bottom is solid and it looks like it very well may be a working one. If it is it will count as the “extra” premium content for the gold edition. Either way its not worth the extra $20….

      We will see I guess :-).

      1. ChilledHillarity says:

        Oops posted it on the wrong spot haha.

    5. RandomOne says:

      Maybe the one in the picture isn’t… But, maybe it’s a hint about one? I remember them making a poll on this on the site before. You never know. ;)

  2. Iron Seagull says:

    Looks like there’s a life-sized chess game like from Harry Potter, unless that’s staged. New spring riders too, never enough of those :P

    1. Chris says:

      I sadly want to say it’s just gnome decor recolored. :(

      1. Iron Seagull says:

        That’s what I think too. If it really were an object there’d probably be some low fencing around it because in the picture it blends in too well with the rest of the pavement.

  3. Steph says:

    toy shop please be a toy shop

    1. MurfeeL says:

      You ninja’d me! XD

      1. Werewolfgirl120 says:

        lol’d that

    2. Damienf519 says:


      Couldn’t you already run a toy store through with the stuff they’re giving us in the standard version?

      1. ChilledHillarity says:

        Yes, but they are going to add ONE extra premium object like they did with the renaissance faire and then try to justify the extra $20 you pay for the world….

        1. Steph says:

          @ Damiensf519 yes i would assume so about running a toy shop with the standard version and ChilledHilarity hit it on the nail with a PC item for an extra few bucks depending on what it is will be the clincher for me as to which bundle i might get , my fear well not really a fear persay but what that PC item is and will it be someting a lot of people have been wanting for a long time and is tied into the gold edition , if it is please EA sell it seperatly and not mess it up like auora skies+ early learning centre

  4. MurfeeL says:

    Looks like a zany toy shop–that would explain the jack in the box

    1. Steph says:

      wouldn’t it be fun if the jack in the box can do a cowplant thing on sims scare the bjeebies out of them..i know i’ll get me coat

  5. Cyberqueen13 says:

    The fake merry go round looks like it is made of seahorses “spring riders” and the “gnomes” on the chessboard look like little munchkin land sims :-) I can’t make out much more of this image. I would guess that this is a toy store especially since the park also looks attached to this lot. I hope that there is premium content inside that allows us to make toys. Would be cool if it increases the “inventing skill” from ambitions, but you learn to make toys. Would also be cool if it were a new maptag “Toy store”, but I know that’s not gonna happen :-(

    Well, they have my interest. I was not to sure I would like a “dark” town, probably won’t use it much, BUT I always love the new PC.

    1. Cyberqueen13 says:

      At closer look, I think the gnomes are challenging each other. Who will win? Santa’s little helper elf or …the new little very cute Munchkin gnomes! If those little munchkins look the way I think they do, they will be the most adorable little things ever and my FAVORITE gnome in the game. I want the one in light blue clothes :-D

  6. Forbidden says:

    I hope it’s a toy shop with the toy making thing :3

  7. daethaqt says:

    Yep its some sort of store.

  8. urbanvirgo says:

    i love the Hansel and Gretel look of the building

  9. miklc says:

    I am so excited for this world, have to get the Gold Edition without a doubt!

  10. Elsia says:

    Is it just me or did they stop giving away the free simspoints the day they announced this town.
    I was able to get them the day before the new town was announced but now it’s not showing up. I was so close to the 2,450 SimPoints needed to get the standard version (as long as they didn’t limit the town to a simpoint bundle).

  11. Conclue says:

    Whoa so you get a venue as well in this World for 43? That’s REALLY a good deal then, for once. LOL

    I figured the OFB PC and the extra items were what the set was made up of. The world alone comes with 114 items?

    Even better.

  12. Cyberqueen13 says:

    I just bought the bundle to get the gold version! I love my husband :-) He lets me feed my addition to The Sims :-)

    1. SIMplyTheBest says:

      You are sooo lucky! My husband does get me the stuff & expansion packs, BUT sometimes with the “you don’t need that” comment/face. Sometimes he doesn’t care. But the Sims 3 Store? Heck, that has to be on my own. :(
      Of course it is sometimes my own fault that if have a bit extra money I spend it on my kids for silly stuff, not myself..cuz I been having that bad habit their whole lives. You don’t get second chances in life, so kids come before my games for me,! :D

    2. daethaqt says:

      Awe only if you could share him ( Just Joking )

    3. Cyberqueen13 says:

      addition really should say addiction. LOL

      1. SIMplyTheBest says:

        O.O OMG I didn’t even realize you wrote it wrong! I was skimming through it & read it as what you intended to write. Wow, so THIS is what happens with not enough sleep before I finish coffee? My eyes are deceiving me! :D
        (Besides the fact I babble to much, sometimes…)

  13. Damienf519 says:

    I wonder what this is. It looks like some kind of family friendly venue.

  14. pofpof says:

    Look the roof, isn’t new?

  15. Mr. X says:

    Why does everything good in videogames have to come out in September and October?

    My wallet is going to hate me.

    So far these next months my purchases will be

    GTA V
    WWE 2k14
    Batman Arkham Origins
    The Sims 3 into The Future
    The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow(the 5000 bundle saving $10 might be too good to pass up)

    At least I don’t have any plans to buy any games till this time next year.

    1. daethaqt says:

      Good Games, PS3?

      1. catloverplayer says:

        By the way Batman Origins is getting a Friday release worldwide.

  16. Aaron says:

    Love to Norse/Nordic/Viking roof

  17. Leni says:

    What a gorgeous building! Guessing by the jack in the box picture this is some kind of toy/novelty store – I wonder what the PC is here? Toy making station?

  18. Jason says:

    I hope the premium stuff are pottery and sewing.

  19. Amethyst says:

    I bet its something to do with toys or dolls? Maby ventriloquist dummys?
