You know you've made too much expansions when...
« Reply #1075 on: March 25, 2013, 01:40:49 AM »
Don't get me wrong, I love The Sims 3, but I remember at a certain point there was so much stuff in the original The Sims, that I felt like I should buy a computer exclusively to run the first game and its expansions, a few of which I didn't really care.

So when it's time to stop creating EPs and start a Sims 4? When you run out of ideas? When there is a technology breakthrough? When the glitches pile up so much it's impossible to fix'em?

This topic is too much like the existing topic, so I'm going to merge them.  Also, please keep in mind that we're not going to discuss Sims 4 until there's an official announcement from EA and I don't think that's happening any time soon.  So, it needs to be strictly Sims 3 here.

When you dream about having a dog (I'm not allowed a dog because my dad doesn't like them  :'( ) so go into Sims to recreate that dog and let your Simself own them instead (he actually ended up looking a lot like Ralston, the dog in Appaloosa Plains, but he was called Howard  :P )

I was in Kroger's last year with my sister and I kept staring at this guy. She asked me what are you doing? I said he looks like Morty! She knows my addiction and just started laughing.  ;D But man, it really did look like a YA Morty!!

When you see a person that looks just like Billy Caspin after you give him a new makeover. (I was at Goodwill, and there was this guy walking out... Even had the same recolored outfit...)

....you sit and read this thread and keep nodding your head with agreement, lol.  That is why I don't post very often, I think 9 out 10 I have experienced at one time or another.

When you have a nightmare, and the "parental figure" (for lack of a better word) is your latest evil sim. (I have a thing for evil sims, This one has lilac hair, and a possessed cat)
Yeah, I dreamed that I was going to this boarding school, everyone hated me except for the evil English teacher! I also met a girl who speaks fluent simlish there, but she hacked my computer and deleted my sim save files. Yeah, not the best day for me.

You try to pause a video on the internet, like youtube or something, by pressing the P button and it takes you a second to realize you aren't playing the sims.
You dream about the sims often, and get ideas for your game and stories.

I don't know how to make a banner or I would. I have a sim legacy story if anyone would like to check it out *whistles*

I thought it worked for awhile(until I noticed the Video ended when I came back  ::))

I have my own: When your parents(or boyfriend/girlfriend) are not at home and you sneak on the computer to play sims and create whoever is not home and a is self and then make them go on the computer when they are gone.

Great Jessie, did you have to weird them out!

When you're more excited when see Sims stories with your favorite Sims inside *and squealing like a little girl* instead reading other fan fiction  ::)

When your torn between haning on the forum in hopes of someone updating something or playing Sims.

Isn't the plus side of Sim stories the correct grammer, no OOC (out of chacter) and there is never the wrong pairing? :P

Ah, yes I understand about that feeling. That is... unpleasant.

Agreed completely :3

---

When you having a dream meet your favorite Sims Resident. Like meet Mortimer Goth and Bella Bachelor :D
And when you didn't accept for what happened to your favorite Sims as it is stated in their biography, you always say "If only I" and then with the power of The Watcher that you have, you quickly do something to them after that and post a story of them at miscellaneous story area to show everyone that they deserved a better life ::)
