It's interesting seeing things that were changed or that didn't make it to the final version. Like the sim who told her sister about the cheating husband, or the industrial CAS podium. The UI looked different too, and so did the fruitbowl- and of course there are a lot of hairstyles we would have loved to have but that they changed or scrapped. I see lots of early versions of the final characters- Don, Dina Nina... who is that blonde with dark eyebrows in Daniel Pleasant's pool? Also a lot of 'lost' items that creators have retrieved from the game files, such as a painting and the cabinet.

In that presentation, where Beta-Don (Baxter) cheats on his wife with Beta-Dinah, not only does his wife sister catch them cheating, and tells the wife, but the sister also is the one to beat up Beta-Dinah. I wish they kept this sort of awareness in the final game. It's always so awkward when a Sim cheats on their partner, and the partner's family treats them like nothing happened (for example Don leaves Cassandra at the altar, and a day later he comes over and chats and plays chess with Mortimer like nothing happened...you'd think Morty would have something to say to the guy who hurt his daughter like that...)
The only remnant of this is that Sim children start crying and get negative relationship if they see one of their parents cheat.

Thanks a lot for these! It was very fun scrolling through this thread :-) this video though:

Is that a Hasselblad camera I'm seeing??? Oh boy, if only that mesh would still be somewhere in the game files... (;´༎ຶД༎ຶ`)

^^ That dude looks like the prototype for Sim Sample!

I've not heard of anyone finding a camera mesh, but then again that video has a lot of models that look to have been made just for that animation. So maybe they weren't in the game, anyway?

I remember seeing the "teenfight" screenshot pre release. That sure is a lot of Sims to have over.

Well two of them are the parents who (irrc) in that scenario were "out" while the teenage daughter had a wild party. But even so, yeah that's a lot of Sims and probably would never have worked on the average computer back then :P

Good question, she doesn't look like Beta-Mary Sue (who had brown hair, in an up-do) but what's interesting is that her hair doesn't animate (it clips through her upper body in the upper screenshot and moves along with her face in the lower one)
So that screenshot might be from the short period during pre-release when Maxis said that they probably would have to scrap animated hair and no long hair styles would be shipped with the basegame.
Thankfully they managed to work it out afterall! I mean from a modern perspective the hair physics of Sims 2 aren't *that* good, but from what I remember they were quite spectacular back then.

There was a broken lamp involved with that party! I remember being so excited to be able to build houses like the one featured in some of the promo material, decks and hilly terrain were not possible in Sims 1 (or Sims 4 )!

Edit: I found an early Mary Sue- look at that UI!

Cars were originally in the basegame, but they weren't finished in time, so they took them out and re-enabled them with Nightlife when they were finished.

Apparently they did all the coding and models for pets in the base game as well so that when they made the Pets EP it was minimal work just to add them in. It's so clever the way it was thought out and planned through.

I didn't know the gossip remnants we have are just junk - I was under the impression all these years that gossip actually worked properly and was waiting patiently for the moment a sim heard about cheating through gossip!

I think the gossip does work as intended, but they originally intended it to work differently:

I really find the justification why they took out that function out very silly.
The game communicates with you through text and pop-ups all. the. time. so an additional pop-up about why a Sim's wife is suddenly mad at him because she heard of his cheating through gossip would not really have changed all that much, and it would have been a fun and important feature to have imho.

Yes, but I remember the way they originally intended it to be being teased in trailers and interviews etc before the game was released. I was VERY excited about TS2. I hung onto every word of those interviews! And I didn't have any knowledge about game development. So naturally, I assumed that everything that was talked about would be in the final game.

So did we all, eventually-and to be fair, the game did come in with a lot of stuff that was built up on, although to this day there are so many things that many people wanted to be in it, just like all the following iterations of the original game.

But the iterations are nickel and dimed to death, to the disappointment of their players.

We got lucky that EA wasn't as greedy the first time.
They got lucky the first time and then they got greedy afterward.
