Hi there! I'm Julie, and I just started playing TS3 on Saturday. I consider myself very lucky to have found Carl's Guide/Website and this forum through it. I played Sims 1 when I was younger, probably around 2002-2003 and then the disc was lost.  But now I'm "back" and as addicted as I was before as a kid! Looking through this forum, it's awesome and I'm really excited to be a part of all this - and for all the help because I will definitely need it! And hopefully someday I'll be able to give it. I only have the Night Life expansion so far (because it came with my game) but I'm hoping to buy Ambitions and Generations soon.

Thanks for reading!
-Julie

Hi Julie! You've only been playing since Saturday? WOW! We are here for all your questions, be they beginner or advanced. Even the seasoned veterans turn to this forum for help.

Ambitions and Generations are two great ones to go with, in my opinion. Carl has said before that Ambitions adds the most gameplay, and if I remember right it is his favorite. Generations gives many new socials and interactions, making families more dynamic and fun to play.

So welcome Julie! I hope you feel at home here with your fellow Simmers.  :)

Hello, my name is Kaitlin, usually everyone just calls me Kae. I found the guide and these forums while searching for an answer to a technical issue and I've been hooked ever since, only just recently joined however. I've been playing Sims for a year and a half now, on and off, and usually would just cheat and build, thanks to the forums and the immortal/lifestates dynasties I'm really getting to experience Sims on a deeper level. Its all much more fun now!   :)

Welcome to the forum, Kae! I've always found the Dynasties to be a great way for me to explore the game at a more complete level. (even if I've never managed to get very far into them  :P)

Greetings, long time lurker, first time poster.

Been gaming my whole life and have played pretty much ever Maxis game when new, going back to the original SimCity.  I enjoy The Sims in spurts between other games, though my wife is a much more regular player.  I have a bad habit of spending far more time in build mode than live mode and an embarrassing amount of time in Create a Style. Currently enjoying Island Paradise in a houseboat with two cats, looking for love under water, and managing a shoddy little resort.

Hi all, I'm a 47 years old, live in Mass all my life, semi-retired, and have been a long time gamer.  I remember to this very day the very first coin-op game I played was called Dominoes which was out even befor Pong.  Ahh.....the good ol' days......When I got my first computer I was immediately hooked on strategic type games and some rpg.  Did this till Sims 1 came out and I remember stumbling onto this website to see what info I could find about that game.  The first thing that hit me was the site looked slick.  Didn't stick around too long but popped in and out for help and guidance.  Got bored with the game, played some stuff, didn't really played the second sims due to some reason it just didn't appeal to me like the first one did.  Picked up the 3rd, played it a bit, came here like I did for the first sims, faded away thanks to those MMOs especially WOW, got tired of the majority of the players who play mmos, decided to try sims 3 again and I'm back with a renewed vigor.  And look I'm actually posting for once instead of lurking around.  :P

There's one thing I would like to say is thank you so very much Carl for running one incredibly awesome website dude.  When I came back to the site for 3 I was blown away at how much of it grown.  Once again thanks!

I also like to thank all the people who took the time out of playing the game and of course their real life stuff <which is sims 3 of course  :P> to write the the tutorials and the other stuff.  Thanks to you guys & gals my sims IQ have increased.  Once again thanks all!

Hello everyone ^^
I just signed up here today, you can call me Namaya :) (Most people turn it in to Nam to make it shorter). I am a 21 year old girl from the Netherlands and a simsplayer ever since the very first game! I always preferred Sims 2 over sims 3 for a very long time (mostly because of the graphics), but now that I got a fancy new laptop I decided that it might be fun to permanently switch to the sims 3 (I am a bit late, since sims 4 is already in the making e.e'). Anyways, I'm not a total noob to sims 3 I did play it last year for a couple of weeks, but I'm still not very familiar with the game and I hope that this forum will turn me into the simsplayer I was at sims 2! My biggest hobby next to playing games is writing, so I'm considering on creating some stories on the sims! I have been a writer for a very long time already, but writing sims stories will be the first thing I will write in english completely. I hope you guys will forgive me in advance for any grammar mistakes :P. I tried making sims movies for a while but ** that is a LOT of work so I guess I'll just stick to screenshot stories ^^.
I hope to have lots of fun on this forum, I'm a highly active person when it comes to communities where I feel at home, so I'm hoping this will be one of those communities as well! Pleased to meet you all~

BTW: I got all expansions and I'm already getting dizzy because I don't know where to start haha.

Welcome to the forum Nam! I started playing The Sims 2 in February 2011 but switched to The Sims 3 that September. I'm looking forward to reading your stories and don't worry too much about mistakes if English isn't your first language. We will all be willing to help out should you make mistakes. English is a hard language to learn, I've heard (English is my first language, so I don't have first-hand experience).

Welcome to the forums everyone! I just know you will love it here!  ;D English is the only language I know, but it's pretty easy to pick up, I think. Maybe not though, I'm not sure!

Thank you ^^ Luckily my English is good enough to talk and understand fluently, but when it comes to writing I'm kind of a perfectionist :P.

Hello, everyone! I go by Loon on the internet, and I'm relatively popular on the deviantART forums as the resident wackadoodle. I'm almost eighteen, the proud mother of four cats, fluent in German, and I've been writing stories for a very long time (I have some posted on the internet, so you can PM me if you want to read them).

I've known of the Sims series since 2005, but I finally got my hands on the game for Christmas 2012, and I started lurking these forums back in February because I was bored in math class. Now I finally got around to making an account.  ;D

I sometimes come off as a very grumpy person (Grumpy Cat and George Carlin are my spirit animals), but I'm actually very nice once people get to know me. I'm just a neurotic mess with a short fuse.

My parents didn't like it because of the Teen rating but I finally started wearing them down in my early teens. Victory for me after seven years.  :D

Oh yes, I am. I currently have about three different dynasty files going, and I'm going to see about posting the official cheat-free one I'm doing once it actually gets moving.
