Hello Forum!
I decided to finally post something on here! I've been an avid reader of this forum and site for quite a while now but never made a registered account. It's always been my "go-to" anytime I needed info about The Sims. I first started playing the game when The Sims Double Deluxe came out.
The stories on here are awesome and the challenges blow my mind! My favorite is Pam's Dreamweaver Immortal Dynasty.
I'm happy to be "official" now!!  8)

Good day fellow humans. And most likely good evening to those of you who aren't human. Whatever the case. I am Keoni, and today I feel like posting here now that I've posted in other threads. I find myself curiously addicted to this cursed game. I say that because I played the first game before any expansions came out, found it exceedingly dull, and didn't even bother with the second one as a result. But when I came across this one on a friend's computer and gave it a go, I found myself becoming amused. Thus, therefore. Hello.

Hey everyone!! I am totally new to this site! I actually found this out by doing a Google Search on Sims 3 Worlds (as I recently purchased my 2nd world pack for Sims 3 [first being Barnacle Bay] in Monte Vista!) And I own ALL of the Sims 3 Expansion Packs except for Pets... I dunno, Pets just doesn't intrigue me into buying for some reason.

Anyways, I have been a BIG Sims fan ever since it came into existence!

I believe I was age 14 (around there) that I started to play Sims 1. Played a bit of Sims 2 but me being a part of The Sims Online was where it was at! I dedicated about 5 years of my life to that game (and no, I didn't have to juggle between that game and a girlfriend... really it was that game and college!) If any of y'all EVER played The Sims Online, Test Center was my main city... I was under different names... NBA, Nike, Bruce Almighty and my last one before the game went extinct of QuikSilver. I was a BIG flirt in that game, was voted most flirtatious male of TC and voted 3rd most friendliest Sim of Test Center as well! (I guess two females were more friendly than myself, hehe...) ALL THAT PLUS being the owner of a #1 Skill House (specializing in Body & Logic -- called Tropical Isle BodyLogic) that tallied more than 320+ real life hours! I had all 7 roommate spots filled by women! :)~

I was REALLY, TRULY saddened by the news that The Sims Online would no longer exist but I did hear about Second Life and most of my Sims Online friends went there. Unfortunately, I could never get into that game because really, it didn't have the same feel, the same fun-factor as what The Sims Online brought to me in those 5 years... spending anywhere between 8 to 10 hours of real life in that game... and it will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart, even if it never does come back in this lifetime, the numerous friendships that I made on that game, the special women I interacted with on there, the balloons that I passed to people to make friends in order to grow my number of friends, all of those memories will never be forgotten.

It was a REALLY HARD transition going back to playing Sims offline, even though the Sims 3 had way way better graphics than The Sims Online could ever produce... Until The Sims 3; University Life came out. With the new options of calling for new roommates, and not having to worry about greening them up, is such a relief! Almost as fun as the good ol' days of The Sims Online, except for the major difference of them not being played by a real-life person... :( I know people had major problems with The Sims Online and are happy that that game is no longer in service, but there are other people (like myself) that continue hoping that one day Sims will be back online so we can all reunite and be roomies in the same house. Til then, I will design and continue brainstorming ideas for my house that I will one day in the future build online...

With all that being said, I am very happy to be part of this forum and hope to make new friends on here to talk about Sims! If you would like to e-mail me, I have enabled this feature so that you can e-mail me, whether if it was about The Sims Online and whether you knew me from back then or just about The Sims 3, I am open for any type of Sims discussion! :)

Happy Simming Y'all! :)

Welcome to the forum Keoni and SimNike.

I never had the opportunity to play Sims Online and was always intrigued. But couldn't leave the offline game long enough to try. I always opted to spend my money on the regular game.

Thank you for that warm welcome, PlatnumDymnd! ;) Anyways, you missed out on a GREAT multiplayer game! Though one can never go wrong with customizing the offline version, as the online version was a bit limited, but still it was great nonetheless. If I could do it all over again? 10 out of 10 times, YES!! :)

G'Day everyone!

My name's Simeon and I've just joined this forum. I have been lurking for a couple of years now, but only just decided to join up!

I'm a 22 year on bloke and hail from Sydney, Australia and (sadly) spend most of my time working full time for government and (happily) planning a wedding with my fiancé! She's also a Sims player, and introduced me to the game!

Hope to speak to you all soon!

Welcome Simeon! Congratulations on your engagement! Most of us in here either have work or school during the week and struggle to play or go on the forums on most days.

Hi there!

I'm Mixu! I'm a long time visitor to Pam and Carl's Sims 3 page and decided to join the forum today! I absolutely LOVE everyone's stories! I was enthralled for like 3 days with all the different challenges and impressed at how creative and supportive everyone on the Forums is so here I am!

I'd like to try my first Sims 3 challenge and my first Sims 3 Story line. (is that what we call it?) I'm a long time Sims player and even longer time story teller I just never really realized you could put the two together so well! (Yeah not my brightest moment)

So, naturally, I have a few questions and if all of these are answered on another part of the Forum feel free to kick me over to where I belong (With my apologies of course >.<)

-From what I understand, players refer to themselves as "Watchers" and are (sometimes) omnipotent and in charge of their sims. Easy enough.. am I off by much on that? lol

-Are there any challenges that would be easier then others or best to complete for someone first starting?

-Is there a section where we're allowed to just freely play and write out the story of our sims or is it only for Challenges?

-(this is a random one) I've never (confession) let my sims die before. The extent of my play is to have an immortal God that can do anything cause I spent 90 hours doing everything on them, hence why I'm so eager for something new. Has anyway else done this? And was playing through generations of your sims family more enjoyable?

-Lastly, any random tips for a new comer? :)

Thanks, hope to hear back from some of you! :)

Welcome Mixu!
My, I don't think i've commented in this thread since I introduced myself way back whenever it was.

The term Watchers actually comes from The Sims Medieval. How people play as a Watcher is up to them in any game they play, and any story they write.

There are Miscellaneous Challenges here, plus some people like to start out hard with something like the Immortal Dynasty Challenge. Others still like Legacies.

The Miscellaneous and Legacy boards are generally where people post whatever Sim stories they want.

I personally have never done so, although others might have. I like to play through generations, it gives me a chance to see what sims appear from story progression, and what the descendants look like.

None that I can think of for the moment, but there are threads that have hints and tips for Legacies, the different Dynasties, and other threads that ask and answer questions.

Just look around for something to read, or start your own story, or even just ask for help with problems or things you don`t understand. We`re generally a friendly bunch, and I hope to see you around the forums one day.  :)

Welcome Mixuneko! Enjoy the challenges. If you aren't fond of letting your sims die, try an Immortal Dynasty or a Lifestates Dynasty. You need to keep your founders and heirs alive for the whole game, but the rest of the family dies off. You get the best of both worlds! Anna, I couldn't have said any of the rest any better myself.

Welcome to the Forum, SimsFreak26!

I've been playing since I was about four and I'm 13 and half now so I've been playing a long time too! I'm sure a lot of people here have been playing for a number of years, too.

Hello everyone, I'm maddy. I've been playing the Sims since the beginning, probably first played it when I was 4 or 5, though it didn't interest me much (I played Everquest, so the "character creation" was really lacking for me.) I started playing the Sims 2 around release, got a few expansions for Christmas, and then got all the EPs from a friend when 3 came out.  ;D Right now I have all the EPs for Sims 3 and I typically play on and off for a month or so at a time. I'm not really into stories and stuff, but I enjoy reading other people's stories and reading about their experiences with the game. Figured I might as well introduce myself and try some challenges while I'm here.

Hello all. Enjoying the site,very useful. Like some of the forum posts too so thought I'd post myself.

Played the Sims 1 year ago and loved it. Been playing the latest version for a while since I upgraded my PC.
Thinking about doing some of the challenges to spice up the game play a bit. I've had a go at one so far,  but made a mistake so...
