Remember back in Sims 1 and Sims 2 when some variant of the phrase “reticulating splines” came up on the loading screen? Expansion packs for those two games played with the phrase a little and modified it for their specific content. But I have yet to see any version of the phrase appear in The Sims 3. There are a few sites that mention the phrase is still used, but I haven’t seen it. Have you?
