I bet the "service pack" that corrects these bugs is going to
be the next chargeable expansion set...

already anounced on the official website, that they are working on it

I doubt it, they have already said on the official site that they're working
on it and that it should be available soon.

Yeah, the two persistant errors I have encountered both were listed in the
help base as being scheduled for patching. Judging by their history, they
will release it when the feel they have caught all the bugs. They don't
issue new patches every few days.

I can't understand people who are whining every day in
the forums "when is the patch available??! What, no patch
yet??!"... They don't seem to understand that it's good thing
that devs are using time to develop the patch so as much
bugs can be corrected as possible.

You mean for bugs that should have been taken care of before we forked out
our money to buy the product?

I don't think its really possible for them to get ALL the bugs out because
every one's machine is different with different hardware and software
installed. Your install may react different on different computers. I have
two computers and the game installed great on one, and bad on the other and
they were both well within the spec range. Expecting them to be absolutely
perfect is over reaching.

I think everyone already knows that pc-gamer is one
(in some of the worst cases, only) part in beta-testing
and always will be. Guess it's more cheap/time saving
this way because pc-games can always be patched
afterwards anyway.

Well, you may be unlucky, but for me I much prefer being able to play the
game for all these months. The bugs I have seen were minor and one (the
"jump" bug) only cropped up with sims I had played really long. Now if
they sold the patch rather than giving it away, I would be royally Not
Amused. But that's not how they usually do it.

Ussually you get the bugs out before you put a a produkt on the shelve
With software it seems to be different, look at windows ;o)

Yeah and lucky are the ones with internet.
Imagine what would happen if you didn`t have it
you would be stuck with a buggy game.

More like, sorry George but I liked Star Wars the way it was even if it did
look kind of screwed up. Now, if he had given away a "patch" for Star Wars
maybe I'd sing a different tune. ^_^

If and if. But now is now and everyone has got
some kind of internet connection, so no more
excuses or funny speculations, please :-)
