So, I finally locate tracking information for my “preorder” from Origin – and it states that “estimated delivery date” is the 9th! … How is that fair…. at this point, I’m starting to think I’ll not be pre-ordering from Origin anymore without huge incentive offered if they can’t even get the item here within a day of release. Here’s hoping it’ll actually show up today, but.. *sigh* It’s not like I only ordered it in the last day or two, either… they had plenty of time to process the order, in my opinion. There are plenty of other places I could have pre-ordered a physical copy of the game and gotten a release-date delivery.. the least the actual publishing company could do is offer like services.
So.. enough ranting, I suppose. I came up with a project to occupy myself for the day(S) until it shows up.. I started up a new save file in Sunset Valley 2 (exchange download) – a blank town with lots of flat area for building – and am using it to test out the houses/lots/families I have downloaded that I’ve been procrastinating on testing. Will also allow me to weed out any icky CC that shows up and won’t let me uninstall. Additionally, I’m going to do a build on all the commercial lots for a small rural-style town, and post to the exchange on the off chance anyone else can use them. They’ll be mostly on the smallest lot possible for ease of placement in smaller town settings, and themed for a rural/farming community. So far I’ve done a military/city hall/police building and a Criminal building. The criminal building was great fun to put together, and I have to say it looks great. The load photo simply doesn’t do justice to the chaos of the junky-looking abandoned-farm building “backyard”. 🙂 In a small rural community, I figure, the Criminal building would have to be VERY well disguised to have any long-lasting use. 😉
Anyway. I’m off to build and test. And try NOT to be annoyed. .. hehe.
