Ok, my introduction is a few days left but I just found the thread...

I started playing the original The Sims when we got our first computer in our family about a decade ago. I still have a copy of the original game somewhere and a few of it's expansion packs. I played The Sims 2 as well and many of it's expansion packs as well.
The third sure looks like the best one so far and I will keep playing this one for quite some time.

I found this forum and guide when searching for information about various things that I need more info on to play a bit better.

I am 23, soon to be 24 and I live in Sweden.

Ok, just read the past 4 pages of this thread, so this is where all the fun happens?? lol

I'm 32 by the way.  Another "somewhat old timer" I guess.  It's kind of amazing with all the 10 year anniversary stuff that EA is putting out lately, because I remember being in college and playing The Sims at my boyfriend's house.  His brother and I would both play within the same neighborhoods but with different lots.  And one time he PURPOSEFULLY convinced the wife in my family to move in with his family!!!  HE STOLE MY WOMAN!!!   :o

 :D

Hello everybody! I have been playing Sims 3 for about two weeks now. I got it for my 22nd birthday. I played the first Sims game for a short time, then I moved on to Sims 2. I played Sims 2 off and on for years and years. I had most of the expansion packs. I have to say Sims 3 is by far the best Sims game I have ever played! It is awesome! I also want to say I love Carl's site! It is so helpful! So is this Forum! I think it is so cool to have a place where people can come together and talk about a common love for The Sims 3!

Welcome Sunshine :)

I also wanted to say, I pretty much never visit the offical Sims 3 forums anymore.  Seems like it's totally filled with kids posting pointless stuff and the valuable info is lost in the shuffle.  So glad I've found this place!  Seems like a much higher intelligence pool!  And Carl's guides are awesome!  Keep up the good work.  ;D

Welcome Sunshine

And I won't bother with the official forums anymore myself. Partly due to that silly censor blocking completly unoffensive words in my native tongue and because of the complete utter silliness of some posts...

I do admit their official forum beats the one World of Warcraft has, the American one is like a cesspole and the European one is cleaner, but not by much.

Thanks everyone for your kind words about the Guide and the Forum!  It's so awesome to hear that y'all get from us exactly what we had hoped when this forum was started:  intelligent conversation about Sims 3 without the silliness of those posts that really are just useless.  We've got an excellent group of members who are all very nice and helpful.  Thank you for being part of this with us!  :D

Hello!

I've been playing The Sims games since 2000, and I got The Sims 3 a little late - after WA came out - because I was hesitant to try TS3. I was very attached to TS2 and thought I wouldn't like TS3, but so far, with the right mods in place (to fix Story Progression and such, not to cheat), I love it.   :)

I came to the Carl's the Sims 3 website originally to find out gardening and fishing tips, but since then, I have referred to the site for anything from Lifetime Wish guides to Nectar-making tips. So thanks to everyone who has contributed to this site- it's wonderful.

It's been interesting to try and modify my game with custom content this time, as it's the first time I've ever played a Sims game on a Mac. Most advice for installing content is directed to Windows users, so I've had to fend for myself. I try to value it as a learning experience, though.

I'm currently trying the Legacy Challenge with Aaroc's rules from the BoolProp forums. I was never able to complete the Legacy Challenge with TS2, unfortunately. I did almost make it through an Apocalypse challenge, but then my computer went bonkers and I lost everything. I'm even blogging my challenge on Wordpress (http://askarisu.wordpress.com/) in the hopes that I will have some incentive to stick with it.

Glad to be here!

Welcome to our Forum, Askarisu!  I'm glad you decided to give Sims 3 a shot and even more glad you found us!  :D

As for story progression, it's much improved with recent updates to the game.  It was almost non-existent when Sims 3 first came out, but now it's pretty good.  The townies marry, have kids, move around, etc. and keep it interesting.  We actually discourage the use of mods and third party custom content because of the problems it can cause, so I'm really glad that EA improved story progression.

I read your blog for your legacy.  It's very nicely done and hope you continue.

Oh man, we've had a week's sports break here in Sweden so I've missed some guys here!
Welcome everybody! It's really fun to see all these newcomers. :D

Förresten, välkommen Margerita! Fun to have more Swedes here! (especially since I have the Swedish version of the game and am always so afraid of writing the wrong thing when helping people here in English, need a second translator here sometimes)

Welcome Samm!

Tack Swede1992!

I just use the guide if I'm unsure what some things are called what in english or I do a translation in my head to what would be closest in english hehe. Most of the time the translation they use in our version is quite litteral.
