Alright, I'm finally buckling down and ordering Funky Note along with a 765Pro Windbreaker and maybe something else.

I'm undoubtly going to have problems, so let's see...

Okay, first one:
I've chosen to order from AmimAmi because they have lot's of other cool merchandise I'd like, but I'm still open to suggestions based on some of these pre-order bonuses and all. First off...
What the heck is a "special clear file"?

"AmiAmi exclusive bonus:
-Special clear file Funky Note Ver."

Anyone mind explaining what that is, and maybe recommend somewhere else to pre-order from? (For a variety of iDOLM@STER things.)
I think it means a transparent(or translucent) file, with Funky Note pictures on it.

If you don't mind me stepping in, I've come up with some traits for the DS idols. I haven't played the game myself but I do know about them so i worked with what i had (also im too lazy to boot up the game so if these traits conflict in anyway then sorry ;=w=

Over-emotional (she cries a lot)
Frugal (one of her hobbies is bargain hunting)
Natural Born performer (due to her mother being a star and haruka loving her singing)
Loser (she was on quite the losing streak and cries at the drop of a hat)

Computer whiz (NEET)
Shy (from late night)/Loner
Cat person (loves cats)
hates the outdoors (hikkimori)
couch potato (if she's a neet she might as well be)

Natural cook (one of his hobbies is cooking)
Neat (his other hobby is cleaning)
couch potato (he isnt one for athletics)
Hopeless romantic (he gets a lot of unwanted suitors)

I'm sure Heattokun appreciates all the input he can get. There's no conflict, at least according to the sims wiki. Also Hopeless Romantic is a bit off imo, getting unwanted advances isn't really what that trait is about, its more for those like Azusa that dream all day of love (and by extension would probably be somewhat receptive to advances, trying to find their 'destined one'). Maybe give him star quality, considering how he was pretty successful at first performance, or perhaps easy-going since the descriptions of him seem to suggest he's quite docile. Also i think Eri might deserve an Artistic trait, she is supposedly good at digital visuals. Ah, if only we could surpass trait limits.

I tried,still nothing.
If you cut and paste the link then load the page it should work. As long as you're attempting to access the page url directly rather than through a hyperlink it works.

done,rerailing thread.
We got most of the SP gang, so all we need now methinks is a town,maybe a lot, and someone to do the DS idols.

I doubt we have enough info to really make a full imas-themed town, unless we do something extreme like spam all the cinderella girls characters as the npc sims (then we would have a 99% female town and Jupiter would have a field day). Even then the only buildings we really know are 765 pro office, 961 office, Yayoi's house, Iori's house, Chihaya's apartment, and other such random things. We could throw in lots based on what the games contain (all the promotion venues), but then we need npc houses and its probably not enough to make a town out of. When i made my Chihaya/Haruka/Yayoi i just plopped them in Starlight Shores because i was lazy.

DS idols-wise i can't offer much help since i haven't touched the game, and they barely have a cameo in the anime.

Vampire Hibiki is a must. She just needs to show the sharp canines on both sides and instant vampire.
Makoto as Saber (Fate/Stay Night) would be epic. When she flourishes Excalibur... everyone faints.

Ah, I see. Yes i do have steam but the only thing i have on it is dota 2.

I recently finished Hoshizora no Memoria, and can't decide whether it's good or bad. Excellent characters, great artwork, good soundtrack, and the central theme of starry sky is very neatly woven into every storyline. Unfortunately the story has many points where it fails badly, and in the end i don't know what to make of it. Terribad story execution, excellent everything else.

I've decided to take a break from visual novels, and i've turned to X3: Albion Prelude. Anyone else play Egosoft's X series? It's the best sandbox game series ever imo - better even than the much vaunted gta. It does have a learning curve of an icy cliffside, but once you get past that it's awesome.

About Kuroi : Just find a way to bring me Jupiter

SP has no Jupiter, anime only touches on their group once in a while. But, challenge accepted because of extreme boredom.

Anime has a reasonable amount of this guy, so
Natural Born Performer
Snob (I considered megalomaniac but I think only Kuroi has that level of ego)

One thing i dislike about sims is how personalities are active all the time, so its hard to accurately portray tsundereish people like Touma, who have 'hidden personalities'. In the end i just went with what i did for Iori, i chose 5 traits that people interacting with him would see. It might be viable to do something like swap out 'snob' for 'good' or something similar if you want a bit of their more dere sides. Otherwise they'll just be tsun all day (although realistically Touma would most likely be tsun all day anyway). I always wanted a tsundere mod for sims, once certain flags are tripped they swap to a second personality type.

Ok, I guessed quite a lot on this one. Anime only shows him being the stereotypical gentleman+flirt. Input from someone who played im@s 2 game (Does Jupiter get enough screentime to be fleshed out like the SP rivals do? I have no idea.) or maybe read the relevant manga would probably help a lot.
Star Quality

Now i'm just grasping at straws and using the power of google, lol.

Out of curiosity, why the need for spoilers? I do believe the personalities of the idols are already known by pretty much everybody that comes here.

Well,I was thinking and..
Idolmaster Drama CD Spoilers

Maybe something along the lines of body? Well,theres disciplined of course,but the reason why i say that is because it says Ritsuko has knowledge of MMA

Oh I just realised the 'vain' trait for Miki is actually called 'snob'. It might seem a little out of place but i think it's the only one to represent how Miki is always proud of her figure and looks. Social butterfly or maybe diva might be an alternative for this.

As for Drama CDs I dont have any :( and probably wont be getting any :( :( and even if i got it i can't understand it  :( :( :( (I can read japanese kanji with help of a dictionary, but my comprehension of spoken japanese is terribad) so i don't mind being spoiled. I already put Disciplined under Ritsuko since i got that impression from producing her in SP. Anyway for some reason there are very few traits for body, athletic seems like the only one that describes physical fitness. I actually wanted to give that to Miki, considering her figure and dancing but it conflicted with couch potato and that is also the only one to describe laziness. And now that i think about it ambitious/workaholic is probably also fitting for Hibiki, given how seriously she takes the rivalry in SP. Anime Hibiki seems to lack this though.

As for WS i only have PS/MM so i didn't really think about them. But i made a decent (i think) Takane from watching anime so here's my shot at the WS characters:

Good Sense of Humour

Neurotic/Over-emotional/Dramatic (Her tendency to go dig a hole with a shovel)
(I know it looks terribly negative but its the best i could come up with. Maybe i'm biased because Yukiho is my least favourite character, but i just don't see anything i like in her.)

Social Butterfly
Mean spirited

And just for kicks, everyone's favourite little bird:
Absent-minded/Excitable (her daydreams)
Flirty (she is always asking you out in SP, WHY CAN'T I ACCEPT :()
Star Quality (I actually prefer Kotori over about half the im@s cast. YMMV on this though)
Computer Whiz (she spends so much time on the computer so why not)
Couch Potato (well she is watching tv/browsing 2chan whole day)

Ah, since i'm here already, might as well.
President Takagi

Why? Because i can.
Kuroi (glhf trying to fit this into an im@s family lol)
Born salesperson/charismatic (He is easily able to get powerful backing on his side)
Mean spirited

This is actually really fun to play around with.

Huh wow, they still make Sims add-ons? Back in the first Sims days every one was something huge and even if you didn't like the game you at least heard that some add-on is out. Sims 2 weren't that far from that and now... I haven't seen a review of anything except the base game... o_O

I agree on that, i knew about the addons only because i actually went to go look for them. Anyway I always thought that reviewing Sims addons was a bit pointless, like reviewing DLC for im@s since it just adds stuff but doesn't change the base gameplay.

Supernatural is supernaturally good!
*hit for bad pun.*
It actually made me smile. I feel like chihaya in ep26 >.<

Continuing with the spoiler talk, Haruka,Chihaya and Yayoi sound good. If I can get some more sim ideas that'd be great. Perferably Makoto or Azusa with Ritsuko...or if your balls crazy, all of Pro.Fairy and Wandering Star..

More info still to come
How is that balls crazy lol i actually think project fairy would actually be quite fun to play with. Since i'm in holiday with nothing much to do,

Hopeless Romantic
Great Kisser (for the lulz)

Bookworm (or maybe computer whiz or genius? Her talents are not really explored in either anime/sp)

Natural Born Performer
Loves the Outdoors

Animal Lover
Easily Impressed (This will have to do for her gullibility, since there's no such trait for it)
Natural Born Performer
Maybe vampire. It's my pet theory, that Hibiki is secretly a vampire and tries to hide it but occasionally slips up and that's when you get her 'one sharp canine tooth on one side' look. YMMV on this but if i do make a Hibiki i'm sure as hell going to try to make her one just for fun.

Natural Born Performer
Couch potato

Takane (I had trouble thinking of what to give her, until i saw supernatural added a couple of really fitting traits)
Night Owl
(Maybe spellcaster, if you subscribe to the 'Takane is part non-human' theory.)

Talking about this gives me the temptation to go reinstall sims 3 and try to make an im@s family. Main problem though is how Producer is going to be like, his personality is almost undefined in the anime and in the games his personality is that of the player's.

I actually made a Chihaya/Haruka/Yayoi family for showtime when it came out, although i've since uninstalled my sims3 a few months ago to make space for loads of visual novels. This was before I watched im@s anime so its mostly based on my impressions from playing im@s sp and reading wiki (shouldn't be too far off, after watching anime it still looks fine to me).

Possible substitutes are Shy, Technophobe, Disciplined, and maybe the Brooding added in supernatural.

Star Quality (I would give Natural Born Performer but it conflicts with Clumsy)
People Pleaser

Natural Cook

It was kind of funny yet sad, while haruka and yayoi were best of friends chihaya somehow could never get along with them.

Not sure how to describe what i just saw O.O but it looks fun, cute and it's idolm@ster, so nothing not to like. But Nov 28 is smack in the middle of my year-end exams week T_T

Also hoping they come up with more songs for this, the extensive playlist is one of my favourite things about im@s.

The chihaya fanboy in me tells me to vote for her, but her wave is just so... dumb-looking. It's totally un-chihaya-like, just can't bring myself to like it. Voted for miki because she looks cool, and ryo because he's hilarious (and cute).

I'm in a weird superposition between stressed and apathetic. I have tests coming up in a few days, and a voice in the back of my head is telling me to do something about it but yet i just can't find any motivation to study. I switch on my computer to do online practices, and end up playing games. i wish i could have the determination of chihaya but it seems i always end up with the slackerness of miki.
