 In contrast to the previous versions, the houses and neighborhoods will be seamless, allowing players to explore and interact with their neighborhood without loading time.  With this release there is a Create-A-Sim character builder, where the polygon 3-D models of Sims can be modified by changing a wider variety of properties than what was available in previous installments.  This opens the door to creating completely unique Sims with regard to weight, fitness, hair, and clothing, etc. Players can customize nearly everything in the game, including furniture, clothes and shoes. 

In The Sims 2, there were only three body types—fat, normal and fit. As in The Sims 2, body shape varies with diet and exercise, so that Sims created as overweight can become slim by exercising and Sims created thin may become fat by eating too much and not exercising. Personality configuration for Sims has also been made more complex, with the original 'percentage bar'-style personality points replaced by a combination of traits, similar to those in the personals section of newspapers. The build and buy modes have been revamped. The square outlines that appear on the ground (often referred to as a grid or tile)—apparent when entering build or buy mode—are now four times smaller to give the player more liberty to place objects where they want
