A town in the mountains hills, with a giant lake at the base. Optimal for Falls and Winter.

Leave Spring and summer for Sunset Valley.

Uhm, this expansion most definitely won't release in November of this year. Every expansion pack takes 6 months or more for the entire development and marketing process to be completed. Supernatural is scheduled to release in September of 2012. Which means this EP would not be released until around the spring of 2013.

We all have to look for answers somewhere. Some in big ol' books, others in big ol' bottles of whiskey.

i know i know but on the sims wiki rumors it said the release date leaked out on a bunch of sites and i mean i wouldn't be surprised as 1) they released TS3 Diesel a month after Katy Perry and 2) November is when it tends to get winter-ish and everyones gonna be like "Hey its snowing- i want it to snow in my sims game! so lets go get TS3 Seasons!"

I am not much of a speculator and no, I didn't come from Missouri but I am one that will believe it when I see the date officially announced. Might apply to the EP itself.

Stop. Stop right there.

You're assuming two things:

1. EPs are only developed for six months and Seasons hasn't started development yet.

2. There's only one team to develop EP's.

I can immediately refute number two by noting that SimGuruGraham has consistently spoken about a secret project that him and his team are working on while the other teams have worked on Supernatural. There are multiple teams.

We don't know enough to claim number one, and I would highly doubt it if I were you.

The past would tell us to doubt this Seasons EP coming out in November, but the evidence is stacking up heavily that our doubts are wrong. An Outwear category has been leaked. There are many listings from reliable retailer sites, all with Seasons being set for November. Retail sites have been how we have seen so many past EP's leak. You can't throw away what they say.

It's a bit out there that EA would release Seasons in November right after Supernatural. However, it was also out there that EA would release two Stuff Packs in between two Expansion Packs, and they did just that.

I want all that moogloo88 listed. Also, children building snowmen and parents lifting them up in their arms so that they could place the carrot for the snowman's nose. That's in TS1 and I was really disappointed that it was left out from TS2 so I really hope they add it to TS3!

I think the game itself is proof that it's not developed by one consistent team. Things would probably work better and be more integrated if it was one team. Sims 3 suffers from "siloism" each team doing their own thing, the others having to scramble to accommodate code changes.

so far, in relation to a Seasons pack, all I have seen is speculation, rumours, talk of "leaks" etc. I want cold, hard facts. Until we get them we can't say for sure one way or another.

This pack doesn't interest me that much, but a playable Occult Scarecrow sounds pretty cool.

I'm not trying to be a hater, but honestly, someone in a forum when the Supernatural release was announced had a good point. So much of the stuff they're including in the Supernatural SP kind of leads to the next step being TS4. Though, with the Sims Store being available for TS3 and it wasn't available for the others, they might have it put off for a while. I don't really care about something that's been done before. I think Supernatural was a pretty creative idea, but I think they could get more creative with things.

It is to at least some extent. If you go the Official The Sims 3 website, the information from the Katy Perry pack is under Games > Stuff Packs, and the forum for it is under Stuff Packs.

While you could argue that they just didn't want to go through the work of making new categories to put it under, it's quite clear that they do consider it enough of a Stuff Pack.

I'm not getting my hopes up. This way I'll be less disappointed by the final product.

TS2 and TS3: Where adult sims potty train their toddlers.
TS4: Where adult sims make Angry Poops.

Which game is made for the juvenile minded?

This is a very subjective comment. Not all of us think Supernatural is the end-all pack. In fact, even if they put only the bits we see in the Season hints (screenshots and cover) then it will be a fantastic pack, more exciting to me than a bunch of supernatural creatures. I want STUFF, not more ways to make Sims. I admire the enthusiasm of the folks who love these packs, but really, they are giving their own opinions and we all have different opinions. I like the stuff that is in SN and I will probably buy it for the stuff, not the creatures because, well, I can afford to do so. If I couldn't, I would skip SN and not worry too much about it. But Seasons? No way could I lose swimming in oceans, country fair items, snow, etc. My game would feel incomplete without it.

Thank goodness EA is giving us both so everyone will be happy....well, not everyone I guess. :P

S3 already has gardening, though. I hope it improves on Gardening, because it's such a pain to do now and takes all day without mods.

An idea I'd like to see, slightly unorthodox but not out of the realm of possibility considering what we know about Supernatural:

A lifestate for each of the four seasons.

* Plantsims for the spring.

* Merpeople for the summer- they do seem to be egging on the recurring rumours about them, given that the new trailer is the second one in which someone briefly appears in a mermaid-themed costume. Plus, you know, swimmable oceans.

* Aliens for the autumn. Already confirmed at the end of the trailer, vaguely thematically appropriate given autumn harvests and the cliche of aliens leaving crop circles.

* Bigfoot for the winter. Because a big hairy creature is well-suited to the cold.

If they were to do that, every Sims 2 creature would have been brought back to the series, leaving nobody thinking that any of them had been left out and allowing the last few expansions to introduce entirely new lifestates. In conjuction with everything we've already seen in the trailer, it'd more or less cut the number of complaints about TS3 in half in one fell swoop.

Havent checked this in a while but HAHA! look at everyone who disagreed with me -- TS3 Seasons IS in fact coming out November 13! Looks like I knew what i was talking about. Anyway I cant wait for this EP and Supernatural!!!! im just so mad they made aliens the creature!!! UGHH that woulda been the perfect one for the university EP, but NO. I would say make plantsims the creatures but fairies in Supernatural are actually extremely similar cuz of their relationship with plants and such (research them). I think they shoulda made the creature bigfoot or a mermaid cuz sims can swim in the ocean, which ties mermaids in, and bigfoots were never in World Adventures, and they seem good creatures for winter time And other than that im head over heels about the fact that we have basically 4 new creatures, and an improved one in Supernatural!!! Cant wait for more

i love MTS :)
