I couldn't find an intro section, and this seemed the most appropriate place. =3

Hello! You can call me AJ. No I'm not a guy... definitely a girl. my real name starts with a and is very common and since my mom called me by my name and middle name together, (which is a j) I started to be called that in school, to tell me and the other 'A's apart. which then shortened to AJ that i thought was awesome cuz i was a major tomboy and liked having a boys name... lol

So call me AJ. ^_^


I have an obsession with architecture, which is why i love the sims, but my love started much earlier than sims. Before sims even came out, although I am not old.

I started with obsession of building in general, with anything i got my hands on. When i was in second grade my teacher had a bunch of paper cups and plates that no one else liked to play with, until i managed to make a structure with them so high i had to tiptoe on a desk to finish it off. then everyone thought that was awesome and took to them a lot more. My teacher was very impressed, said I was a regular architect. So I looked up what it was, and really liked it.

My parents were divorced at this point, and the next visit i had with my dad i told him about it, and he went out and got me a computer program to make houses. Not the sims, this was still pre-sims. I liked it. loved it! used it a lot. =3 then a year later the sims came out, and he got that for me right away, and I liked that too. but i could only play it during visits...  my mom didn't have a computer (didn't get one till i was 19, and that was MY computer that I bought myself) so i was always drawing houses. when i discovered graph paper in 4th grade I was ECSTATIC! lol... I was a strange little kid, sitting and using a ruler and a pencil on graph paper drafting houses for the sims...


Yeah, I am a sims builder. Don't do much playing, and when i do it is to play with the genetics, so i rush play it. I want to create a sim with all the genetics of a bunch of different sims! See how it turns out ^__^;

ahem.

my style of building is like craftsmen meets modern. I like little tricks, and details, artistry in the architecture, but I also like open concepts. I love split levels and playing around with wall heights, stairs, anything to do with levels in the house plan. I make the oddest of designs, but i don't think anyone else but me find them very attractive... so i am hesitant to share them. Though recent project I am doing I am getting very excited about, if it turns out well, i might start sharing pics of it. Right now it is in draft form, graph paper everywhere.

I asked for further brainstorming ideas in a thread in the builders area, if you ever saw something you thought was neat, I would love to hear about it. Help me spark up some ideas for myself. =] I already look through lots of places for blueprints, but i'm starting to run dry even with those... so anything would be appreciated.

Hello AJ - or should I call you Ruire?
Your introduction impressed me a lot. I think you will have a wonderful time with Samoth and his demanding building challenges. Please, feel very welcome. I'm looking forward to your projects. :)

oops, i missed this thread, sorry to give you more work to do moving it over...

Thank you for the welcomes =3

I dunno how well i will do in the challenges... I usually only ever make things for myself and never pay attention to prices or size restraints. Although, it could be fun, and help push me out of my safe zone and i bet it will be great for inspiration as well. hmm.... yep yep! sounds like a good idea!

Hope you guys like my designs, never actually showed anyone them before, they tend to look a bit odd... lol

Hi! I'm simmergeek, and I'm so addicted to the sims! I've only been playing for about a year but I've actually gotten pretty good, thanks to some videos on YouTube.

I have all the expansion packs and I think my favorites are Ambitions and Generations. I'm a sucker for making families. All my households / legacies are generations/other expansion pack.

I'm known around the web as 'walkthatwalk' but decided I needed something special for the sims :D

I mostly joined because I need friends that play the sims! No one I know in real life plays them and only one or two online friends play them.

Other than that I'm a college student who plays water polo and swims. I also really love math!

Hope to see you all around! :)

Hi everyone,

Thought I'd introduce myself, I'm generally a forum reader not participator, but ran across this site while looking for some information about Sims and realized there was much more here than just guide....there are STORIES!

I'm a story-lover which is why I play sims to see their lives unfold (and nudge them of course) and make them have lots of children and good lives. I was a SimCity player first and when the first game came out I foolishly scoffed and ignored it. Then a couple years ago I found a used copy of Sims2 for $5 and ended up buying every expansion. Oh the stories I could tell about Penelope Curious and how her family took over the town. Sims3 was already out when I was playing, but I didn't want to buy a game that had less functionality than 2 so I waited. A couple months back I decided it was time. I probably won't wait so long when 4 arrives next year.

I'm really interested in the stories that come of the Dynasty Challenges so I'm hoping if not to do one of them to try something very similar and tell the story. I've started writing and collecting screenshots so hopefully soon I'll be posting them here. The challenge will be to get 8 generations of vampires in a single house before the first one dies. It may be super easy, it may not, but I've enjoyed playing vampires so I thought I'd practice supermaxing and such in a slightly easier setting since I've never tried anything like that before. Then, if I have fun, I'll try for one of the dynasty challenges.

PS raerei is pronouced "ray-ray"

Welcome raerei! I'll look forward to reading your stories. I've found that the Sims 3 lends itself more easily to story-telling than the Sims 2 did, maybe because of the sims' traits.

I'll do my best to be entertaining.  :)

I'm mostly going to let them do whatever they want and write the story around it, as long as I know where it ends, it should work out. I have found I care a lot more about my sim when i started writing her story. I'd only played her for a day of her life, and she was a lot more fleshed out in my mind. But I should have expected that. And there are definitely more options to be unique in Sims3 than before so it should be fun.

Hello world!

My name is Callum and I am 16 years old. I play Sims 3 on my laptop and don't have any expansion packs. I am really looking forward to the release of Sims 4 because I would like to see how much the emotions actually effects the actions made available to you, and how much detail you can go in with the Create-A-Sim.

How are you guys?

Well coming up with new ideas for challenges and dynasties. I love making them for the challenge board. But I think just playing a family and seeing what type of skills and interactions I can do with them and how other Sims will react to them.  It looks like there are many ways to cause different emotions with them now.

And my daughter is into Sims 3 and is looking forward to Sims 4 She is the same age as you. She loves making families and playing them. She even likes playing Sims 2.

I've lurked around enough, I suppose I should actually introduce myself.  :)

I bought The Sims 3 a couple of years ago with the intention of trying to get my wife into games (and therefore give me more time for my FPS's and MMO's), but she just isn't meant to play computer games, I suppose.  So, the game sat on the shelf gathering dust for a few years. 

Fast forward to just over a month ago.  I was in a gaming funk, tired of the same old same old (found it hard to play games where the sole focus is to kill things), so I decided, what the heck, let's install this game and see if I can get into it.  Well, thanks to few few well (or poorly?) timed sales at Origin and other sites, I now sit with all EP's, save Supernatural (which is currently on sale at Amazon, so this might be incorrect by this evening) and Showtime.  I find myself enjoying this game more than I have any other game since the heyday of Everquest. 

I think I'll leave it at that for now, lest I max out my writing skill with this just post.   :P

Welcome to the forum Freiyr. I am glad you are finding the Sims 3 and the expansions fun to play.  I love the Sims 3 and am looking forward to Sims 4. Supernatural expansion has a lot of fun content in it, and I think you will enjoy it.

Hello, my name is Paige. I love The Sims, as it is so giant in the ideas of story telling and customization. Carl's guide really helped me out. Without it, I would be so confused right now. I love Immortal Dynasties and other stories, but I probably will not make one.

Anyway, nice to meet you all!
