Welcome, Serendi!

I can relate to your post!  Remembering what order Sims 1 needed to be installed and all that, and how many times I had to reinstall was just crazy.  Seemed totally worth it at the time though!  lol

Hi Serendi!

If you are in to collecting then I suggest searching for Tiberium where there are many threads on here about it! Transmuting becomes very profitable, once you get the hang o fit but Tiberium is easiest once you get the Heart cut, it will then transmute into a large Spire Cut worth 30000 - 45000 so one of those can be nice everynow and then. Board Breaking is an exelent way of getting gems when you can break Space Rocks and complete the Body Builder Challenge (no fatigue for strengh workouts)

Welcome to the forum Serendi!
He, he. You know, your story kinda reminds me of myself before I got hooked on Sims 1 with Makin' Magic. All I ever did at first was to build enormous houses where my sims could just walk around in since I practically destroyed the game for myself with money cheats. Luckily Makin' Magic came which presented some new interesting aspects that got me playing the real game, I eventually found out what I had been missing out and the rest is history. :D

Also in similarity, this is the first forum I've posted on, although I have followed others closely. Stuck around since it's a great site, but needed some guidance! ;D *modesty herself embodied* Nah seriously, Carl runs an excellent site here.

I was 5 when Sims1 came out and 9 when Sims2 did so I was too young. I really want to play Sims2 with the University pack.

That didn't stop me from playing, I started when OFB came out though. University was fun, even though I never got through it all!

Hello! I'm Hannah and I started playing sims just before TS2 pets came out. I love sims 3! I'm an Aussie 21-year-old and I love pets....and University was the only expansion pack i didn't like - it took sooo long to get a sim through university and it was quite repetitive i found.

Welcome to the Forum Hannah!

I liked Pets, the lack of choice was a bit annoying though. Like you I thought Uni took way long to complete!

So I've been on this site since the tournament started and yeah I'm a bit addicted to playing challenges in Sims - otherwise I tend to get bored with them too soon. And now I feel it's time to finally introduce myself to all of you.

My name is Lena and I'm an 18 year old girl from Denmark. The teacher I had in English in school was very bad so most of my English is self learned, so I apologize for all my writing and grammar mistakes and hope you still can understand me.

I've been playing Sims almost since Sims 1 came out. I still have allSsims 1 expansions installed on an old computer :). I never really got into Sims 2. I got it when they where 3/4 through all the expansion packs and I played it a lot the first 3 months I got it, but even if Sims 2 have many great features (I still miss some of them), I never really got addicted to that one. But then there came the Sims 3 and I was sold and I play a lot each week.

As I said before, I love challenges and I like to compete in as many as possible. There is it also I miss sims 2 a bit. I can't play my "8 survivors challenge" any longer (8 sims survived a deadly disease and now they have to populate the world again.) Then sims 3 story progression is smart but not so smart that I can't turn off emigration and immigration.

Hi Lena! I think your english is wonderful for a second (third? fourth?) language! very understandable! I've learnt other languages, but not to the extent that I could go to a forum in that language and understand everyone, let alone speak it!
I was so addicted to Sims 2. It really helped because I was going through a rough time in my life and it was the most complete distraction I found. I could forget my worries when playing it. I've never done any challenges or anything, so maybe I will some day? They sound kinda interesting. Right now I'm just working on my one family through the generations.

Welcome pallyndrome and LenaLJ! (Now we have at least two Danes on this forum that I can remember of in this instant! :))

Don't worry so much if you're having trouble with English LenaLJ, we can help you out sometimes and things are usually quite understandable to read around here even if someone doesn't write perfectly. Your English also seems to be just fine for a non-native speaker!

Even though English is technically my second language, I can feel so bold to say that I can talk and write it fluently even if I sometimes can't decide whether I like the British or American spelling of words. ::) Then of course, I know fluent Swedish and I can even, in some cases, at least read French!

I would love to learn new languages also, including sign language. It's a beautiful language to "watch" I think, especially when somebody is signing the words to a song. It's like singing with their hands.

Wow.  Times have changed since I went to high school in Irving.  We had a choice of Spanish, French, Latin, and German.  I even had the choice of Spanish or French in Junior High.

You know, I haven't introduced myself in this forum before. And because I feel like doing so now, yea...

Hi, I'm Andrew. I'm from Malaysia, and although I'm Chinese, I can only speak Malay and English. Pfft. I tried Sims 1 when I was really young. Then I had Sims 2 and Vacation as an expansion. Now I have Sims 3 and WA.

I like this forum(as well as the guide). I find it comprehensive, better and easier to refer to in comparison with the main Sims site and other game guide websites. There's plenty of things here about Sims 3 I didn't know of, resulting in a significant decrease of sleep I've been getting. Good job, Carl and team. =(

I have a request I'd like to make. If you catch me with any bad use of English in this forums, please correct me. I want to improve my not-so-fluent English. =)

Well then, a somewhat late welcome to you aws_137! :)

I actually know two guys who was in Kuala Lumpur for a couple of years, so it's fun to have someone from Malaysia here on the forum! And of course we can help you if your grammar gets too bad sometime, that's how you learn a language.

I just couldn't resist being a "grammar nazi" here, in light of the last two posts.

Swede, you should've said "...two guys who were in Kuala Lumpur..." and you shouldn't have begun a sentence with the word "And".

aws, your English is far better than some I have (tried to) read on other forums, so don't bee too worried about it!  The only errors you made were minor punctuation mistakes (commas are tricky!) and I had no problem understanding what you were saying.

AND, of course, it's always funny when the grammar nazi makes a grammar mistake.  Eftyen, you had "bee" instead of "be."

Since perfection is elementary, I should be worried about it. Thanks for what I take as compliments here and there. Minor punctuation mistakes... I'll take note of that.
