SimGuruTatertot (yum!) has shared a blog on the upcoming Store Premium Content!
I’ve worked with designer Alan Copeland to come up with his thoughts on our latest masterpiece: The Stones Throw Greenhouse Venue — which includes two new premium content, such as the Plants vs. Zombies Sunflower!
A few weeks ago we mentioned that there are some really cool content coming to the Sims 3 Store over the next couple of months. Today I’m excited to preview one of my personal favorites, the Stones Throw Greenhouse! This venue is filled with more new objects and exclusive premium content than any other venue we’ve shipped before!
Hey everyone! I have been bombarded with emails, tweets, FB messages, etc etc, regarding the Sims 3 Seasons Game Guide. This is an update to let you know that I am off work all week, and have plans to complete the guide by this weekend. I am working on it as you read this!
Until I am done with the guide (or at least 75% complete) it will remain password protected. While I work on the guide, jump in your game and get a feel for it! The guide will be done before you know it! Thank you for your patience!
China is a beautiful snow covered world!
EA Launches The Sims 3 Seasons
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Nov.13, 2012 – Celebrate the change of seasons this holiday in one of the most highly-anticipated expansion packs released from the critically-acclaimed The Sims Studio. The Maxis Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that The SimsTM 3 Seasons Expansion Pack* is now available across retailers nationwide and Origin.com on PC/Mac and for digital download on PC at Origin.com. In the latest release from the widely popular The Sims 3 series, players can experience the thrill of the changing seasons with transformative weather, fun new activities such as snowboarding, soccer shoot-outs, and roller-skating, entertaining festivals and even some out-of-this-world surprises.“The Sims 3 Seasons will offer fans more than just sunny days to tell their stories by dramatically transforming each world from one season to the next,” said Ryan Vaughan, Producer for The Sims. “In a first for The Sims, new festival lots and holiday celebrations have added ways for players to truly revel in the spirit of each season.”
In addition to dramatic weather effects and seasonal celebrations, The Sims 3 Seasons introduces all-new activities that will add a fun and festive spirit to every season. Sims can enjoy the unique beauty of the changing seasons as they create snowmen and snow angels, or sip hot chocolate beneath the mistletoe against the backdrop of a winter wonderland, go egg-hunting, enter a pie-eating contest, or toss some horseshoes, just to name a few.
Making a return to The Sims franchise in The Sims 3 Seasons are the fan favorite aliens. These extraterrestrial Sims bring with them UFOs, telepathic abilities, unpredictable abductions and even male pregnancy…oh boy…or girl. Players can add aliens to their households to observe the full range of these otherworldly creatures’ bizarre powers, and aliens who visit earth can also sign up to become test subjects at the new Science Facility.
Players will uncover even more surprising interactions when they install both The Sims 3 Seasonsand The Sims TM 3 Supernatural Expansion Pack which launched in September. With these two expansion packs, players will unlock the Weather Stone, a mystical item that reveals new integrated gameplay possibilities using elements from both games. Witches, vampires, werewolves and fairies from The Sims 3 Supernatural will be able to awaken the Weather Stone and summon their own magical weather at any time of year and in any world.

The Sims 3 Weather Stone is an object that is automatically placed within every town when you have The Sims 3 Supernatural & Seasons installed. Both games must be installed for this object to appear, as it cannot be found in buy mode. This guide contains information on the uses of the Weather Stone.
