Default Do you know what's missing from Sims 3?
A vacuum cleaner.

Just think of the fun Sims would have had with that. Suction gone wrong, vacuuming up homework, pets ... Dust clouds when the bag gets full. Certain death from tinkering with it.

$10 for the vacuum cleaner

$15 for the dust bunny gnome

Sims have vacuums. They fly on them.

Sims also sweep, mop and scrub. Since floors don't get dirty (except for spawning a debris object), they have nothing to vacuum up.

Have you guys ever see some auto mobile flat-round shape cleaner? It must be fun to see this little funny think gliding around your house cleaning.

For me, I'd love to have roller skates or skateboard. It must be great to go around town using the skateboard or roller skates.

Dreamfoil is a WoW reference, chosen because finding a name on a popular forum is hard if you don't want numbers in your name. And because I suck at coming up with names.

They missed their chance of filling the house with fur dust bunnies when Pets came out.

I remember saying, way back when it was just the Base game, how the game needed washers and dryers. My friend was like "No way, they already have too much housework to do!"

Well, we got 'em.

Maybe it could be a combo vacumm/wet vac, so your sims could mop up puddles as well as do their Hoovering.

I would like to see Sims playing with Rubik's Cubes.

What I think is missing, is the the amusing hysteria of it's players. I just read the "Whoa. Sims 2 off Origin" thread and it was the most entertaining thing I've read in ages. My favorite point is always "EA is forcing people to stop playing TS2".

TS4 should be out in less than 9 month and I'm already scared of the day EA goons break into my house, scare my cat, break all my TS3 discs and cover my registration codes with black marker so I can't read them any more to force me to play TS4

Ok, for starters I wasn't insulting you (to those who disagreed). I was playing up the individual parts of your name, which would be a foiled dream. Mix those up, you get dreamfoil. I guess no one got that.

Please, do not be offended.

All good, sarcasm doesn't translate well on the net

The herb's name is ironic because it use to be one of most used herbs. I lost alot of sleep spending so much time farming for it.

My Sims could do with a Roomba. You just take the radio controller car from TS2, code its pathfinding to work in TS3, and slap a Roomba model on it. Boom.
And the Rubik's Cube idea mentioned earlier sounds cool too. Imagine if Sims would just randomly bust out cubes while idling, like they do with their phones in TS4.

Hypocrisy is only okay if I do it.
