Welcome Sindocat and fellow Ohioan. 

I live in the state also and I love the hills surrounding my home area.  Makes for interesting weather   :)

Hello fellow simmers,
Great to read so many entries.... and a bit impossible of course! so many,
but I intend to forge ahead because I would appreciate meeting some sims 3 players with whom to share ideas and trouble-shooting and just simple chatting.
On the sims 3 website, my moniker is cosmoblivion.
In "real life" my work is as a family nurse practitioner, mother, sweetheart, dog lover, artist, poet/writer, website healthcare blogger/content writer. My kids and I began playing computer games early; our first major addiction being the first Everquest game. Besides the great fun in-game of experiencing all the worlds, we met people around the world.
My kids also played the sims from the first games and kept telling me to join in, that this game is definitely "mom's type of game" ...so I finally gave in just in time for sims 3. It has actually taken awhile for me to build up steam to playing it, only because of life demands. But once I began, the designing of sims and, especially, the designing of homes and properties stole attention. The "game" is a thorough joy for me. Recently, I added World Adventures, which has added a great deal of fun to the sims play. I am looking forward to learning how to make my own worlds next.
So that is my introduction. Only one more thing to add: I enjoy meeting folks from all walks of life.
Happy simming!

Welcome, Lada!

Yes, I love the design aspects of the game, too - what my sister half-seriously calls "dolly dress-up". I have learned so much already from Carl's site - anything you want to do in-game, someone probably has some solid advice. Also, I find that this is a friendly and mature forum, which at my age I certainly appreciate.

Sounds like you have a very full and fulfilling life! Enjoy your Simming, when you find time for it. :D

Sindocat,
You are so kind to reply to my message. Thank you.
This Carl's site seems very friendly and I feel grateful to have recognized this is the place to meet folks actively engaged in the game.
Again, sincere gratitude for your personal reply.

Welcome to the forum, lada.  As Sindocat remarked, it really sounds as if you have a very full and fulfilling life.  Glad you've joined us here to share in the Sims part of it.  And one aspect of your post stood out for me - it's always nice to meet a fellow dog-lover! 

I hope you'll enjoy the forum.  :)

Hi everyone. I'm Mel, an 18 year old girl from London. I've been playing sims since I was 11 or 12, starting with sims 2 and now sims 3. I've been a lurker on this site for a while but never actually joined and posted until now. I try to play most evenings, but I'm a full time college student doing A Levels and I'm going to university this September to study animal management, so I do have a busy life. Sims is my way of relaxing and I'm so happy to finally join the community and talk to some of you lovely people!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum but old to the Sims. I have played every version of the Sims so far and looking forward to the next. I played the Sims 3 through the World Adventures expansion during a time when I was unemployed and had a lot of time to kill with the game. Then I got a new part-time job and even though it was only part time, I had to work really hard to to prove myself there, become a full time employee, get a raise, and get promoted. In the meantime, my life has settled down to where I have it in a comfortable routine and then stumbled across mentions of the Sims 4 coming out. I got really excited about the Sims again and decided to reinstall Sims 3 while I wait for the next one, and have gotten hooked all over again.

Reading over these forums and checking out everyone's stories and projects inspired me to join up and create a project of my own to work on during the wait for the next one. I'm doing a lifetime wish legacy project where I have started a family and will attempt to fulfill all of the lifetime wishes (except the ones I really don't want to do - no sense doing ones that won't be fun). I'm starting out with just the base game and Seasons and will add the other expansions as I go, if I have time for them. I'll be setting up a thread in the projects forum, so look for the Greythorn project if you'd like to check it out. :)

Other than that I will mostly just be checking out others' stories getting great ideas from them.

Hello people,

I'm Jeremie, I'll turn 34 years old next 8th of may ! Yes I'm an old chap playing the Sims 3 : a bit embarrassing isn't it ? I like playing the game except some annoying bugs like the error code 12 for example : that thing is turning me nuts. I play the game most of the time on my MacBook Pro Retina 15" ( late 2013 configs ). I have all the additional disks.  I live in Brussels ( Belgium ). I'm unemployed. I'm single, isolated and orphan ( Got no family anymore as both my parents are dead ( Father killed himself when I was 15 years old 1/2 and my mother died of the Parkinson disease the 17th of July 2010 ( the family I still have left don't care about me at all ) ). I suffer of depression, very severe anxiety disorders, agoraphobia and since a few years I'm struggling with alcoholism. At the other side, I love dogs as you can see by my nickname, I love sports ( I used to play football ( soccer ) when I was a kid and a teenager but I had to stop because of destroyed knees : kneecaps very prone to dislocations ( had more than 150 in my life ) but I'm fan of Chelsea FC ( since 1997 ), KV Kortrijk, RSC Anderlecht, I like to watch cycling, tennis and snooker ) ), I love listening to music ( mostly Dance, EuroDance, Trance, EuroTrance, Techno, some Evanescence like of music and also some French music ). I'm Christian. I don't want to tell you what my qualities are nor my flaws : I just want people discovering them. What I hate : unfaithfulness, liars, hypocrites, narcissistic, ass-licking and dishonest people.  That already was a bit about me.

Welcome to the forum, VioletG and GoldenRetriever. 

GoldenRetriever, your name definitely caught my eye, as a dog lover.  You may perhaps be familiar with the Schipperke breed, as they originated in Belgium.  I have four of them.  Anyway, this isn't the place to talk about my dogs, although I tend to do so at every possible opportunity  ::), so I'll just say I hope you'll both enjoy the forum, VioletG and Golden Retriever!

A big, warm welcome to VioletG, GoldenRetriever, and the others! :)

@ GoldenRetriever -  There are a good number of us in our thirties and above. You're only a few months older than I am. :P That's one of the awesome things about this forum--there are people of all ages and from many different walks of life. It's a fun group, and I hope that you enjoy it here!

@RaiaDraconis and GoldenRetriever

I have you both beat, I am 58, married with two adult "kids" three grandchildren one who just became a teenager. Have a Weime (don't ask me to spell the breeds name, I do well to pronounce it right   ;)  breeds nickname is Grey Ghost  ) who's name is Ash and we have nicknamed monster and furball who is a mixed breed.  Reason for monster, most of our dogs have been toys, so to us he is kinda big.  The mixed is around 10 inches tall and around 12 lbs, he weights 85 lbs and furball runs under his stomach.  And guess which one of them is the boss?  Furball, of course.   

Back on topic, welcome to the forum, you will find many here from all over the world and the members here are great people.

Hi, I've just joined the forum a few weeks ago... I started with sims 3 a few years ago and it just stuck. I have commitment issues with my games and never have enough patience to see them through...  :) The longest I played was with the bunch family in 2011, I think that was about 160 sim days. So anyway, hi!

Welcome to the forum paleogirl6

I have the opposite and believe me, it can be a royal pain lots of times.   ;D  I tend to keep my families until I have so many it affects saving games. 

I just hate giving up my families, especially ones that I do several generations with.   Need to let those babies go, and create new ones to become close too.   ;D

Anyhow, welcome and if you have questions, ask away, there are great here to do so; and I am addicted to researching so the archives are great to read also.

Hola a todos, un gusto saludarles! I am from Costa Rica, so I thought I'd better greet you all in Spanish first  ;)

My husband is the gamer and the one who introduced me to the Sims. I actually begun playing World of Warcraft, that's where the name Tandrael comes from, by the way, she's my favorite toon there! But I'm not such a good player, I tend to get distracted by the smallest things in games, so I like Sims way better because I basically play against myself… if you could call it that way.

I'm an architect and I just love building in the Sims, I must confess I run into this forum looking for a cheat to have more money at the beginning of the game, to be able to build better houses for my sims  ::) Then I run into the challenges page and I love these challenges, I learn so much! And of course I don't cheat anymore!

I also love dogs, we have a mutt and two Great Danes that we adopted, can you believe some people give away a Great Dane because of how big they get, as if that wasn't expected!

Anyways, love this site and people here are just great! I'm looking forward to make more friends and learn lots more of the Sims!



ˇPura vida!

Welcome to the forum, 
I'm not one for a lot of the games such as WOW either, I'm not a quick enough thinker, reaction time sucks or whatever for such games.  Sims is the right speed for me.  So, I love the game also.  I see it as playing against myself, the goals I set up in what I want to do and then working to achieve them.

As for dogs, I am not surprised at people not thinking it through when they get a pet, whether it is a dog, cat, fish, bird, snake or other critter. 
Neighbor at our old home had a Great Dane, he kept him chained up outside, said he was too energetic and big to have inside.  I asked him if he had read up on the breed before he bought him, no, just wanted one and so bought him.  Thought Marmaduke was cute and so he wanted one. 

Meet someone who has a Weimaraner and he was irritated that when he locked the dog in the garage it torn up the cushions he had there. 
They are a high energy companion breed, they need to be either with someone or have other dogs around them.  And have lots of exercise, plenty of room to move around.  Not the type of dog that will go and sleep in the corner and doesn't mind being left alone.  Stubborn, intelligent, high energy, sneak thieves, clowns and great dogs to have, if you can give them what is needed, lots of love and attention, plenty of room to run and play and have a good sense of humor.   We love our Weimie and he is a member of our family, I researched their needs before we bought him.
People see the cute critter in the window and want it, not checking out what it needs to be happy and healthy. 

Welcome again to the forum.

Belated greetings :)
I'm Helen, and I'll be 29+1 this year. I live in Germany.
Traits: Bookworm, artistic, computer whiz, slob, Loves the outdoors...
The Sims 3 is the first instalment I've played (except for a very short-lived run on my cousin's Sims 2 many years ago, on which I designed a sim and she proceeded to burst into flames when preparing a meal not five minutes later... I was too shellshocked to play after that), and I feel there is so much to discover. I've been a lurker on this site for a while, mainly reading the guide and eventually stumbling on the forum, too. It's been fantastic so far!
Apart from Sims 3, I escape spend my downtime with friends & family, playing Diablo II, watching Doctor Who, etc., all of which tends to influence sims/buildings I create in some way.
Pleased to meet you all!
Shameless advertisement!

Welcome to the forum, even it if is after you have been here a bit   ;)  I did some lurking, reading the guide, searching the achieves before I formally joined also. 

Love this place as the people here are friendly, helpful and just fun to talk to.  And understand how sims can take over your life and not see it as weird that you love the game.

Hi! many thank yous to Carl for manually registering me for the forums.

I've lurked and used the resource here many a time but never participated. I'd like to change that now ;)

I've been playing sims since TS1. I got into sims fandom on LJ with TS2, where I was a moderator of thesims2 for years and had what I thiiiiiiiiink was one of the first sims story blogs on there. Unfortunately the pictures are all down since my old web host went down... maybe one day I'll restore it, haha.

I play TS3 on and off but I love it a lot. My favorite town is Twinbrook (I LOVE the feel of it, the houses are SO SO great, the swampy fogginess is great... I love it so much!) and it's where I play my main family, the Rosarios. I don't really use any CC aside from store downloads because I hate waiting for everything to load, I like the look of the game as is, and Create A Style provides much more versatility than you'd think.

Anyway, I quite look forward to sharing my Sims. off to read a few posts now :)

P
