Shop - our future physique
27, 2004 - by Claire Brybrey
a recent conference about our new dimension *), scientists discussed the
sim-bio physique codes. A nation wide physical mass creation seems to be
starting this Spring! Is your neighbourhood ready?
don't know for sure how the new dimension will appear, but we know enough
to draw pretty clear assumptions. The Maxis team scientists have impressed
us all with their interesting discoveries on the subject.
this article I want to focus on the physical changes. What will happen
to each sim's body? We had no idea that our current existence is limited
to 2 dimensions, but the recent reveal of the Simmish Prophecy gave us
new knowledge. Sometime rather soon a dimension that was taken from us
some time in the past is expected to be returned. This will definitely
affect our bodies, our looks and even our movements!
are all filled with both fear and excitement!
the Maxis scientists' recent discoveries, a common question was whether
the new dimension will add to our bodies or only to our environment. In
a way the sim body is already having one more dimension than our environment,
so we tend to believe that the extra dimension might mainly affect our
surroundings like houses, furniture, gardens, cars and more. But still,
a sim's body will need to get prepared for these new surroundings and learn
to interact with them. We have forgotten what it feels like to sit on a
3D chair, and nobody know for sure if our current physics would survive
from being hot by a 3D car. Also, we are now used to eat 2D food, something
our bodies will obviously need to adjust in order to survive.
all over the nation conclude that any sim who like to take advantage of
the new dimension will need to go through a physical surgery. It might
sound risky, but the alternative seems even worse: Being left behind in
the 2D world when all your friends steps forward into the new future.
Shop - your new surgery clinic
the conference it became clear that even if we don't yet know when the
new dimension is to be added, hoods can start preparing the transmission
ahead of the event. Maxis scientists have developed a safe medical method
for creating our bodies. Technically the method is completely painless
because you will not be physically involved at all. Instead the creation
can be based on your photos and statistics. You ought to be available during
the process, to assure that your new body will be a true copy.
will of course be possible to request a few individual improvements, too,
that is why we refer to the operation as surgery. If you are not happy
with your current nose or eyes, this will be a once in a lifetime opportunity
to have your attributes adjusted. And let's stress that there is no such
thing as a perfect nose! Being true to your origin might be wiser than
to order a nose that you think others would applaud.
have reported that when you are completely recreated you will just feel
like "a shade was removed from your eyes, brain and heart". This makes
us believe that being transferred into an upgraded 3D body might also affect
our minds, but more about minds, DNA and life goals in a later article.
Body Shop concept is ready, and it will be available May 10th. It's recommended
that a local sim with experience from the medical career is put in charge
of the Body Shop activities. The Hood Council should of course be involved
too, assuring all locals get an equal offer. SimCity hospitals will offer
assistance on technical questions but the job has to be done by each hood.
Conference for sims working with science and medicine, no human attended.
