So excited about the December update when those who have PCs that can run the game in 64-bit mode which will make the game run even smoother. I have 10gb of memory and it does get discouraging knowing that the laptop I bought for TS4 is only using 2.5gb of memory space when it could implement an entire 4gb of ram. I don't mind the load times but knowing that loading, saving, and the gameplay is going to be so much smoother with faster saves and loads is just pure bliss for The Sims. Now I'm wondering if those who can run the 64-bit will get larger worlds? Most consumers of technology have systems that can run 64-bit, considering most pc's now have at least 6 to 8 gigs of ram that take advantage of today's most power hungry applications. I really feel the team has been working on this for a year now, since this is something most of everyone in the communities have been requesting since TS3 came out. Maybe they'll remove the closed neighborhoods within each neighborhood in the next year, as well as giving us larger and more vibrant and interactive worlds with more neighborhoods allowing us more lots. I really hope so.
