I don't have too much information yet personally, but many of the Sims3 fansites are going crazy with their excitement and updates so I'll share what I come across here. Feel free to share what you discover along the way too.

Interesting. I admit, I am really liking that teaser picture of the eyes (if that is indeed an actual representation of how the sims will look), the eyes look quite "alive" to me and the character models look quite pleasing. 

I wonder when EA are going to release a teaser trailer... hmmm.

I am on a mailing list to get updates direct from the source, but I'm usually at work when it comes so by the time I get home the whole Sims world knows everything before me because the others on the mailing list get it out first. I'm always a bit slow on the uptake, but I will be adding everything here as I get it. I'm sure we won't be seeing too much for a while, but who knows.

So there seems to be a whole bunch of leaked Sims 4 pics over at ModtheSims right now. They look pretty legit to me.

(Don't click the link if you want to wait until the gamescom reveal next week.)

Yeah, I agree. The only two things I like so far is how CAS looks, and the somewhat more attractive base-game sims.

The game engine however,  looks pretty much identical to TS3 :/ ... so idk....

it's TOO cartoony for me. I'm sure, like 3, modding will be something to make them look more realistic. But I just look at these helmet-headed Pixar-like sims and think, why? why when graphics engines are so amazing now, they have to do this?

I agree Cloud. I really do like the realism, and was hoping for more realism. If cartoony is what they go for I would be interested in learning their reasoning. We'll see where it all leads soon I suppose.

Hmm... the more I look at the faces the more I'm starting to like them. The faces look much better than TS3's default "pudding" faces and I don't mind the cartoony look too much.  However, I will agree that the hair looks horrible - it resembles a sheet of clay or something :/

Looking forward to the gameplay videos next week. I really want to see how they animate & interact.

someone on MTS photoshopped some cc hair on the sims and they looked pretty good. I'm sure, like we did with 3, cc will make them less pudding (or perhaps they are more Tapioca now?)

The thing I hate the most is the hair. And I need to see gameplay to judge the building aspect of the game


 I did see the photoshopped hair and its so much better! The only downside is that it may take a while to develop the tools necessary to make cc for TS4, it took a while for TS3.

I know. I think the waiting for my tools will be the hardest part. I kind of hope TSR works quickly on making them.Then all the plugins needed for Milkshape and Blender.

I think I'll be with three for a while.
