If you're new to the forum and want to introduce yourself, feel free to do so here!

I stickied this post because I never want it to die. It's a great guestbook for new people who don't have a question in particular but just want to greet us!

lol. Yeah I'm glad you used the same one. I think this place is better for recurring discussions. Threads sink too fast on the official forum.

*clears throat nervously*

Hi, my name is Pam.  I'm also known as Spoop in the blogging world.  The Sims 3 is my first experience with the Sims franchise and I absolutely love it!  I've completed the Legacy Challenge recently and I'm still playing my legacy family, but without the legacy restrictions.  I also just built my own house in The Sims 3, which was totally awesome.  I wasn't very good at building when I started, but I'm getting much better.

I'm a global moderator here on Carl's Forum and I also help out with the guides over on the main page.  Carl and I are both very excited about everyone who is joining the forum and participating in the discussions. 

Erm, ok...  I guess that's it.

Hi, I'm bshag (short for Bolivar Shagnasty) and found this forum through Snooty's page.  I've tried posting on the sims3 forum, and although I have learned some valuable tips, it takes time sifting through all the threads.  :o

So glad to be in on the beginning of what looks to be a really great forum where ppl just want to learn more about better ways to play their games and not so much on being seen/heard.

Nice work Carl and Pam! :)

Hi Kreathyr here,

I found this Forum by actually typing in google "Sims 3 Forum"
Google found 19.300.000 results, after searching through a lot of forums I finaly found a fun one on page 11 hit number 102

It is partially due to the main sites guides that I decided to stick around, but hey page 11 isn't so bad.
Entry number 102 means another 19.299.898 hits after this one ;D

Anyway, be sure to take a look at the Carpenter family legacy challenge, I try to put a lot of effort in it  ;)

Edit: The only downside of this is that I'm from the Netherlands and there is a 6 hour time difference, so it takes a long time before I can expect a reaction ;D

Ok, I'll introduce myself. I decided to register for the forum since I've been poking around here for bit now.

I stumbled upon first Carl's Sims 3 Guide (which is awesome btw). I needed more info on gardening and boy did I find it! The guide really helped me out A LOT so thanks for that!  ;D And that lead me here, to this forum.

I used the same username as the Sims 3 forums -which are fun and somewhat informative but just really congested.

I literally just started the Legacy Challenge. The family's name is Wartooth and I'm thinking about posting a blog about the family's progression. We shall see!

I forget how I found this site, but I'm glad I did.  The walkthrough section of the main page was not only informative, but also entertaining to read.  I like getting ideas for future Sims after reading about Carl's experiences with certain traits and lifetime wishes.

Hi Everyone!

Metropolis Man here. But, please just call me Metro. We're all friends anyway, right? :) I've been playing Sims since the first series came out in 2001. I lost lots of hours to that game. I never did pick up Sims 2 mainly because I really got involved in Diablo II — a hack and slash RPG that also lots of fun. I still play a lot of Diablo and am a Moderator at the PhrozenKeep site. I've run nearly 30 tournaments over the past 3 years for the Eastern Sun Diablo II mod at the PhrozenKeep, and would like to bring that experience to Carl's site. So, I threw a little challenge up yesterday.

Talk to everyone later. Got to get back to real life (I'm married with 3 daughters and it's time to get all of the troops out the door to school).

Well I guess I should introduce myself.......Y'all can call me wild.  I am married and have 3 beautiful daughters.  I am a stay-at-home/homeschooling mom in Southern Texas.  My brother got me hooked on the first sims game and I have played off and on since I started.  The Sims 3 has me hooked all over again and I do believe with all these challenges, I will stay hooked this time.  Carl, this site and these forums are awesome.  Kudos to you on all your hard work getting all this written up and posted for us to use as we need it.  My game play is so much richer for having used many of the tips and guides on this site.

TTFN.......time to go play my glade legacy some more!

Hi everybody!   

Just found this site from Snooty- I love it!   I have found so many ideas for sims from roaming around on this site.  I am glad to find a new happy board!     I usually check back in during my lunch break at work!

Yeah Snooty is awesome to help advertise my work. I am glad you guys find it useful. This forum mainly exists to help me improve it, but I decided I might as well let it be general because of how frustrated I've been with the official forum at times. So far it seems like it's been a decent place to get help. I'm glad you all are on board!

You and me both, Carl. That's the primary reason I sought out something different and stumbled upon this. I like creating fun and interesting challenges and it seems like the vast majority of challenges/competitions on the official forum are modeling related. I have no interest in that stuff at all.

Exactly, why buy a game and then ignore 80% of it's gameplay and only build houses and create clothes?
Don't get me wrong, I think there is some brilliant custom stuff out there on the world wide webs, but it's just not my style. 8)

Sims 3 should be more like Sims 1. More about the gameplay than some fashion stuff.
But they should work more on the hair. Sims with the same hairstyle tend to be harder to differentiate from each other at a glance.

Yes I am more into mechanics than fashion, although I think the Sim women are kinda cute ;) That's what I'd really like to see discussed here -- mechanics. How does this or that work? What's the best way to.... people want to know this stuff. Sure, sometimes it's fun just to kick back and play without thinking but sometimes you want to set a goal. I like to get in depth with my gaming and the official forum doesn't help me to do that at all.

While playing the legacy challenge I constantly need to add to or rebuild the house to fit the need of the family.
Now I'm building a bigger, better home and I can see why people like to build.
The options are virtually endless, however, I still like playing better  ;)

I really like building also, but am rather amaturish and am no way as talented as some I have seen.  But my way of building suits my sims just fine.  I still like playing better.  ;D

I have used tutorials on sims 3 Creative Corner, but admit that some are extremely hard to follow. (Especially the ones on Youtube...they go so darn fast  :-\)  I do have some nice houses with basements, sunken living rooms and my favorite, indoor/outdoor swimming pools.  ;D

I guess that's what makes this game so much fun....the versatility.  There is no right or wrong way to play and you can choose to focus on whatever interests you.  Whether it be the mechanics, meshing for fashion, computer coding, building...etc., there seems to be something for everyone!  What I find most impressive about the game is its ability to pull us all together to discuss Sims...mighty powerful Lil pixel's.... :o ;D  Who woulda thunk it, huh...go figure.  ;D
Oh, I forgot...Thanks EA for the game.....Thanks for the forum Carl. ;)

There are the sims but where are the pets?
Sims 2 had pets, why not Sims 3?
Owning a pet is much different experience than having an extra sim.

We'll get pets, of course, we just have to wait. It was this way for Sims 2 players when it first came out... I hope we get one like livin' large, but I expect it'll be in the form of the "stuff packs" now.

Hello everybody!

I live in Copenhagen, Denmark, should anyone care.

I've only been playing Sims 3 for a week or two and have just recently discovered this site. Before that I've been playing both Sims 1 and 2 off and on for years.
Thanks Carl for your awesome guide, it's been really helpful in a lot of ways, like choosing traits and generally discovering what Sims 3 is about compared to the earlier games.

I find that most forums/guides seem so focused on fashion/designing or cheats which doesn't interest me much. Cheats just make the game kinda boring to me.
I like exploring the gameplay so this site is great for me.  :)

I really appreciate all the time it must have taken to write all this stuff and I hope you'll stay motivated to keep expanding the site, say when new expansions come out.

Oh, and the challenges are a fun idea!
