I'd like to add my thanks as well, Metro and the team have given us hours of enjoyment with these challenges and dynasties.  I've got Sim 4 on pre-order, just to keep playing challenges.   ;)

Pretty much the only reason why I'm considering buying Sims 4 is because these challenges are so amazing and I wish to continue to do them. Thank you for all the hard work that you do Challenge Team!!!  ;D

Thank you to Metro and the challenge team for all the fun challenges and Dynasties.
I didn't get to play them much , but I've really enjoyed reading about them and reading all the different strategies and Dynasty stories people came up with.
I'm convinced the new Sims 4 challenges will be just as awesome :)

I only live in real life when my sims need a break ;)

Thank you for the nice words, everyone. It's been an amazing journey over the last five years and I am so happy that the Tournament challenges and the Dynasties turned out to be really popular with players. It's a bittersweet moment for sure — I am happy to take a short breather from Sims 3, but this has been a huge part of my life and it's hard to let it go and say goodbye. It's always so fun to post a brand new ruleset and wait for responses from you guys — "oh this one sounds like so much fun!" or "wow, this is going to be tough!"

Carl and Pam, I want to give a special shout out to both of you for allowing me to basically be on my own, put together the team that I wanted, and runs things how I see fit. It says a lot about how much you have trusted me and you have no idea how much that means to me. :) Thank you so much.

It's been so long since I have written Guide articles so it will be nice to get back to that when Sims 4 comes out and shift gears from competition for awhile. But, rest assured — a new Dynasty and a brand new Sims 4 Tournament will be in the works. Nutella, ratchie, Blackrosea, Trip, LenaLJ, and everyone else that has chipped in to help answer the tons of questions that come every day — you guys are the absolute best. How the heck could I do this without you? Answer — I couldn't.

I would like to add my thanks to the challenge team and also the players who took part. I never did any challenges, but I was thoroughly entertained and impressed by all your efforts and creativity. I also learned quite a few things just from reading about what everyone got up to and also from all your fabulous stories!

Thank you to everyone.  Without these challenges, I would never have found this site.  I still plan on doing all of the Sims 3 Dynasties, possibly on YouTube, and I look forward to what you dream up for Sims 4!

Thanks for the challenges and for showing me there was so much more to the sims 3 than I realised. Though I never came close to winning anything, I had fun and enjoyed participating.

I want to also thank everyone for these challenges especially Metro! This challenges are one of the main reasons I play sims. I am excited to embark on a new journey with all of you in the sims 4. Sadly for me it will be later than I'd like since I'm a Mac user. But I will be joining as soon as it's released for Mac. Until then I may just enjoy some of our old challenges here.

I don't know how you handled Sims 3 for Mac and all its crashing, but you can run the Windows version of Sims 4 (well, actually you can run the Windows version of anything) on a Mac using the Boot Camp utility built into the Mac.  I'm actually using a Mac to type this, and I run the Windows version of Sims 3 because it's more stable.

I wasn't sure how that would work. I haven't used bootcamp before. I know I have it but I don't know how it is or even how it works. Maybe I will look more into that.

I am on an iMac and have Windows 7 installed on the Bootcamp partition. Hopefully I will have no problems, but there is no way I will be waiting for the OS X release because who knows how long that will be. I need to get to writing Sims 4 Guide articles for Carl asap.

I am really anxious to play the Sims 4 and I thought about trying bootcamp but I don't know anything about it. What do I need for it?

If you already have the separate bootcamp partition, then it's just a question of installing Windows on it. When I ordered my iMac from the local Apple Store I just told them that I wanted them to put Windows on the brand new machine before they called me and said it was ready. I did not want to deal with that. If you have an Apple store in town or a licensed Apple repair shop, then if it were me I would take a copy of Windows to them and just tell them to do it. It would take them all of an hour probably and not cost that much.

Sadly my closest Apple Store is in Chicago! Which is an hour and a half drive. Might have to wait till we need to go out there for something else. I don't know that I trust this question to Apple but how much space would need to be partition for Sims?

It depends on how many EPs/SPs you are using and what else you put on there.  I partitioned 800 GB of my 1 TB drive for Boot Camp, but that is because I'm a big gamer and hardly ever use the OS X side.  I have all of the EPs/SPs save KPST (which we all know is a piece of garbage) and the program folders take up approximately 25.2 GB.  This is before CC, store content, savefiles, etc.

EDIT: This is for TS3, of course.  I don't know how much TS4 will take up.

Thanks PSDuckie! My drive is 1 TB too. But I am not all that tech savvy in that I don't know how many GB that is. LOL! I just know its alot but I also know that the sims takes quite a bit if space. But I would imagine close to the same amount of storage for Sims 4 though.
