Apple Posts The Sims 2 Feature
2:13 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Apple has posted a new feature on The Sims 2, scheduled to ship as early as tomorrow. The preview is once again penned by Brad Cook.

Here's a clip from the preview:

The most revolutionary change in The Sims 2 comes in the form of digital DNA, which enables your characters to pass down traits to the next generation. LeTourneau acknowledges that the development team used Punnett Squares to dictate how new Sims inherit traits, such as hair and eye color, from their parents, since “it’s the model most people are familiar with, and it’s also a very straightforward logic method to implement that gives more than enough variety for the game. It’s actually better for us to develop a simpler system that gives predictable or understandable results than to mimic reality so closely as to deliver the same ‘noise’ that the world around us often provides.”
To check out the entire feature, follow the link below to Apple's web site.

Macgamestore.com is currently taking pre-orders for the game. It will be shipping tomorrow, June 10th.
