The SimFans.de team had the opportunity to interview the producer Graham Nardone during The Sims 3 Generations preview in Munich (Germany). You can read the full interview in English or in German on SimFans.de.  Here below we just report some traits, what we think is a real news and important. We suggest you to read the full version linked above.

NdT: Graham Nardone is a producer of The Sims 3 since World Adventures.

It’s so cool when the kids hang out on the tree house. They can now have slumber parties. You invite your friends over and they will sleep in the tree house. But not only that, they play with each other and have fun as well. Depending on which tree house they’re in, they’ll be able to do different things. You saw the clubhouse in which they can look out with their spy glasses and see what the neighbors are up to. But we have different ones like the castle tree house where the have great adventures in there. There is the pirate attack and all these explosions going off with this really cool music. I personally like the Sci-Fi one as well. I like the look of the UFO engines. I put my kids in the astronaut outfits and have them go up in the Sci-Fi tree house. It’s so much fun to play around and watch what they’re going to do. 

There are a lot of new interactions we have with schools. They won’t go to college specifically, but what they will do are the following: Children can go on field trips now.  Field trips are really cool. It is not just a new way of going with the community – they sometimes bring special things back from these field trips and have them in their memories. ts3_ep4_06
Teens can have prom dances. They will be able to take their date and go to the prom and they'll take their picture at the school. You can hang these pictures at home on their walls so they can remember this day and how it was like for them. Of course if they got prom king or prom queen – that’s a very special moment for them.
In addition to those we have these specific boarding schools where you can send off your child elsewhere - you know, outside of your current world. It might be a military school, a sports school, even this kind of a hippie school. They'll have different experiences there and can come over to visit the family and tell them their experiences they made.
 

Daniel, SimFans.de: A new profession is the DayCare. What's that about? Please give a little overview about this profession.
Graham Nardone, EA Producer:
 
Daycare is a lot of fun. The Sims have this new “Nurturing” trait. Sims with this new trait will be great in taking care of other kids; they can interact with them in a special way. If you’re in the daycare profession it's really similar to the careers we´ve added and offered in “The Sims 3 Ambitions”. It’s a very active career. You have to guide your Sims through these experiences to help them advance.

There is a really cool new feature in the catalog. If you have a lot of previous expansions, stuff packs and store content, with all of these items it may be kind of hard to find things.  We now have this new filter in the catalog where you click on it and select the icon of what product you want to see. So if you bought “Generations” and you just want to see the objects from “Generations” you click that icon and that’s the only ones you will see.

Sims can wohoo in the showers now. To see that is really romantic, I’ve enjoyed that. But my favorite one is in the tree house - so Sims will wohoo in the tree house! You'll see the adults climbing up in there and the tree house is shaking. Leaves are falling down off of it and birds will fly of the tree house - really funny!

With the video camera, it’s really an opportunity to view the game looking through their eyes and see the world from their perspective. You can walk around the town and see how the Sims are living and interacting with each other. It’s such a cool experience from that new perspective.
