That's what I've heard: late summer/early fall.

Why don't we start a pool to see if we can guess the release date. I'll
say Sept. 15th.

Amazon are usually right - at least in the UK, it probably wont change much
from that.

You might be, but it does not fill my heart with joy.
Are they really intending to include a farm? How will it be incorporated, I
wonder?
If a Sim can own a farm, then we will be building them like crazy to find
out how it works and the neighbourhood will be rife with cock-a-doodle, or,
perish the thought, a holiday down on the farm?
<Shudder>
Ah well. Wait and see. We have to get Nightlife under our belts first.

Thank 'ee kindly, me dear.
I was speculating on the differences in tastes and wants and what we would
think 'fun' to play, and while I was a-trudging up the hill (cor blimey, it
gets steeper every day) decided that what I would like to see is a Sim
Symphony Orchestra. FULL orchestra with a pipe-organ and all, and Sims could
pick an instrument and practice then go off to rehearsals.and make with a
cheerful - if discordant - noise.

Marks awarded on how many oranges or squashy tomatoes the audience didn;t
throw. They could start off with easy things that doesn't matter if you play
an odd bum note like Bolero, and end up with... Ooooh. The 1812, complete
with canons - for to bring the house down.

I came home and described this to the man with much arm-waving and many
sound effects. He thinks I have gone potty.
I think it would make a jolly good stand-alone Sim game, but hell to
program.
He said it's the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra.

I fancied a String Quartet in Sims 1 - using the bubble blower as a base but
I didn't get far with the animations. I had the music lined up and
everything. But I have to say the thought of a Simphony Orchestra makes me
cringe mainly because I'll want to conduct and will get upset if they use
the wrong edition of the music (I'll be following the score) and make too
many mistakes (you should see me on a podium, I'm an ace shot with a baton).
It's a nice idea for a builder's EP though - think of the concert halls we
could build. I have aspirations to build Institutes of Art and
Conservatoires, you know, and maybe even schools of architecture (the one at
Manchester is a concrete bunker - must have been built in the 60s).
However, I don't think it would do me good to cross my professional life
with play time. Oh no, there'll be tears before bedtime.

Even in that I suggest you play triangle.

That is the one where everyone plays their second instrument, isn't it? For
me that would be trombone, if I can remember which way round it goes.
Completely hysterical.

Well, naturally. That would be the controlling Sim, surely?

Ah, there you go. There would be a read score to digital sound option, of
course, and depending on how good the player is it introduces random
mistakes. As long as the score could be scanned, then you can listen to
whatever you like.... <bounce, bounce>

>(you should see me on a podium, I'm an ace shot with a baton).

Why do I have a vision of a second Beecham in my mind?

Oh nuts to the building, it's the orchestra which has caught my fancy. It
could start off as a trio, and develop up to Wagnerian proportions. Oh, OH!
Sim RING!

Oh, I don;t know. It does have windows. 8)
I have to admit to a rather perverse and unpopular liking for concrete. I
enjoy the flat planes and strange angles.
Birmingham has a lovely library that everyone hates. An upside-down
pyramidish shape. I like it. They stuck an extremely ugly modern glass hotel
right in front of it. Disgusting.
