  2. In all seriousness, I still don't see why English is the preferable option for these signs. Everything else is in Similish in game. There's even a Simlish font, so it's not that English signs are necessarily be easier to make.

  3. It's dumb to put stuff in English for the Sim games because not everyone speaks English. Especially street signs! T-shirts, I can understand, but street signs?

  5. I can understand some people not caring whether stuff is Simlish or English when it comes to T-shirts or other pieces of small custom content.

    However...it is downright stupid to not have Simlish for STREET SIGNS when everything else of that nature in the game is pure Simlish.

    It is severely out of place.

  7. There is no written "simlish" alphabet or language. The so called "simlish" fonts just randomly couple the "simlish" characters found in various sim games with the Roman characters used to write western alphabets.
    In most case people are still writing in the english (or some other human) language when they use the fonts they are just substituting "simlish" characters for Roman ones. It is no more writing in "simlish" than switching my keyboard to Cyrillic or Kana automatically means that I'm writing in Russian or Japanese. The big difference is that while it IS possible for me to learn to write in Russian and Japanese, it is IMPOSSIBLE to learn to write simlish because it doesn't exist as a written language.

    There is in fact an official simlish alphabet, though they are different for each game (Sims 2 used lots of greek letters, for example). There's a Sims 3 Font readily available. It does in fact exist as a written, official language, as all it is is a character replacement for the english alphabet.

    Even if it were untranslateable, that doesnt change that the font exists, and not using it is inexcusable. People want simlish. Simlish makes more sense. It's readily available.

  9. If it was Simlish it would be great. Seeing as it is English it's not something i would want in my game.

  10. "There is no written "simlish" alphabet or language. The so called "simlish" fonts just randomly couple the "simlish" characters found in various sim games with the Roman characters used to write western alphabets."

    Simlish is only "real" in the sense that it was created by EA. There is a downloadable Simlish font, which is why it is no more difficult to create a street sign using Simlish. There is a standard Simlish alphabet, and it is not random.

  11. *I* might want Simlish, and *you* might want Simlish, but it's not a universal preference. If it were, there would be no debate because creators would make everything in Simlish to begin with.

    Quite frankly, if I were a creator, I wouldn't give a shit what people wanted for one simple reason: there's a difference between politely requesting that a creator fulfill your wishes and actually being a dick about it, which is what I see more often than not when people come across the font that they dislike. Referring to their preferences as "inexcusable" would fall into the latter category, if you ask me.

  12. There are a lot of dickheads out there, always complaining. They must have had a terrible childhood.

  13. I don't see anything wrong with the signs. I mean, they look sturdy enough, they seem to point to the direction clearly, and they're following the standard. Do they really have to be in "Simlish"? We're the players here, not the Sims, so we need to understand what we're playing.
