Hello! I've been lurking on this forum for... wow, four years?  ::) And I finally decided to join- there are so many people on here now, it affords a degree of anonymity.

I played Sims 1 as 2 was coming out and Sims Life Stories before I got Sims 3. I actually used Carl's Guide to decide whether or not to buy Sims 3... and I use the forum to find game ideas.

I'm pursuing a legacy right now, but I don't intend to publish a story  :P

So that's me! My name comes from my favorite sim- the third generation of my game, whom I'll probably use as a founder for other things.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Jess, and another long-time lurker on the site.  I thought that the release of Sims 4 was a good time to come out of the shadows.  I've been very impressed with the well designed guide, and with the well run forum.  Thank you to the team that has obviously put a lot of work into maintaining the site; this is my favorite place to get information and ideas about the Sims.

Could someone please tell me where to find my profile information so I can edit it?  I made a typo when creating my account and the mistake in my username is bothering me.  I'd like to at least change the display name to something without a spelling error.  I use stitching_JA or stitching as my names on most sites.

Thank you, Nutella.  I'd been hoping to fix my mistake before posting elsewhere, but a requirement like that makes sense.  I'll edit after I've found a few places to add to a thread.

Hello everyone this is Platnum. I am so happy to see the new forum. It's been a long while but I knew that Carl and Pam were working on something awesome for Sims 4. I am so excited to go on this new game with everyone from scratch. And I see there's lots to read through already.

Happy Sim 4-ing everyone and welcome to all including me!!  ;D

Hello everyone,

Quick intro: I have been playing the Sims ever since the very first edition, and every version since. Also, I have owned and used 95% of all the Stuff Packs and expansion packs. My single most favorite addition to The Sims are seasons and weather effects, so I will be ecstatic when that comes around for TS4.

My best Sim memory has got to be first time I saw it snow in a Sims game.

My worst Sim memory would have to be when I got killed trying to repair a dishwasher. I know, that's not too bad, but that's because I pretty much enjoy all the craziness that happens in The Sims...unlike real life. That's the beauty of it :)

Anyhow, been lurking on here for a few years and felt it was time to come out from the shadows.
PC-Load Letter! What the...

Hello everyone

I've been coming to Carl's guide for a few month now I stumbled across it when getting back into the Sims 3.

I've been laying Sims since the start I borrowed all Sims and all expansion from a friend in high school. Then it the Sims 2 but only the base game. I got back into Sims 3 when it came out and got the expansions slowly. Like most I was excited for Sims 4 but wasn't happy with the changes.

I got 4 yesterday and it's good thus far I hope they'll add in some past stuff.

Cheers.

Howdy folks,

I guess I can't call myself a lurker since I really never messed with the forums for this site, but I sure as heck used Carl's TS3 guides a lot!

I've always been a bit jealous of the folks who seem to write great stories about their sims, and I thought that with this new release I may try my hand at it.  If anyone has good tips about how to start with that (capturing that special moment, getting just the right screenshot, keeping a good pace) I'd be happy to hear them.  My few abortive attempts to write up things in the past ended poorly because I was writing down everything and getting bogged down in detail, I think. Also I have difficulty letting my sims just do what they want to do, so I feel like I miss out on good story twists because of that.

My origin ID is EchoOph, or at least I am pretty sure it is :D  Feel free to add me if you like!

Hi Echo.  What I found helpful for stories in Sims 3 was to play the game, capture screenshots opportunistically while playing, saving lots of versions of the game to preserve life stages, then writing the story and going back to saved versions to set up any screenshots that the story just screamed for.  The last may well be overkill, as I found that the story often wrote itself by dint of the opportunistic screenshots.  Haven't tried it in Sims 4; still learning the game.

Hello everyone!  I found this forum last year when looking for help with creating an apartment building in TS3.  Out of all the Google results, this forum was the most helpful.  I found myself coming back from time to time, so I thought I should register!  I seem to always be a bit behind - questions I have or those posted by others are already answered.  Thanks to everyone for such clear and complete answers and guides  :)

I have been playing since the first Sims game, and really discovered the joy of lot building in TS2.  I haven't had as much free time since TS3 came out, but I still most enjoy building.  Just installed TS4 last night and dreamed about it all night  :D

So off I go... there's a house that needs building.... but I'll be back again.  Have a wonderful day!

Greetings everyone! I've been turning to Carl's guide for years now, and thought it was time to stop lurking.

I am a long-time Simmer. As in...I pre-ordered the original Sims, and have purchased every single expansion pack for all versions of the game. And about half the stuff packs.
Outside of Sims, I'm a single mother of two active children.

Hi--I'm another long-time lurker--I've played the sims since TOS, and just started enjoying S4.  Thought I'd register and speak up in case I was able to help anyone and get help with questions on this new game.

Hi, I'm krutt
I decided to join after using your tips and tricks for a while and loved it. I haven't posted anything yet but I will if I find anything before any of you geniuses out there. My first try of sims was way back when the first one came out, bought it on the first day it was in stores and fell in love. Will never miss a game, ever.
I've been using TS3 to help with all my questions and I'll do my best to help with making TS4 be as good.
Happy simming   :D

A big welcome to all the nooboos, great to have you with us. I don't believe I've introduced myself on here. But I have been a simmer since about the 3rd Sims 1 expansion, which I believe was the vacation one. My cousin brought down the sims base game from Ohio on a trip to visit us in Florida, and I haven't stopped since (though he never made it passed the first game, unfortunately for him). I am an attorney which really dampens my ability to play regularly, but I am looking forward to being on the ground floor of the Sims 4 forum and helping build it up with my experiences, and tips that I find playing (though like the last poster, I probably will find them later than most of you since I can't play as much).

Hey All! Snick3 here (Randy) and while I did not start playing till Sims 2 I did dive into the deep end once I did find the game. Did the same for Sims 3 and enjoyed that immensely. I'm a little hesitant to jump full boar into Sims 4 because I feel there is still a lot to do in Sims 3; especially given all the items I've bought created as well as owning all the expansions. Of course that didn't stop me from picking up Sims 4 but I may wait for a bit before I give up on Sims 3. Really wish they had a way to bring your Sims 3 character over. If not their wealth/items at least their avatar.

Hello everyone!

I'm Evma Alsar (Known as Mattstopher on Origin should anyone wish to add me) and I've been a fan of The Sims ever since release of 1 back in 2000; I've still got all of the expansions for 1, 2, and 3 tucked away somewhere!

I've been using Carl's Guide for The Sims 3 ever since it came out, but haven't really been much of a forum lurker, but with the way the gallery works in Sims 4 I thought I'd try to be more of an active contributor (despite never having gotten good at house building in all this time).

"Allow me to introduce myself: my name is [Drguyks]." (I borrowed the line from Rumpelstiltskin). I am a fan of fairytales, myth, magic, Sims 3, working on becoming a fan of Sims 4, and too many other things to list here. I'm also a Doctor Who fan, big time. If you've seen my name in other gaming forums, cool. Chances are strong it's me.

Hello! I'm also the sort of lurker.

I've been messing around with the Sims franchise since Sims 2! I've fallen in love with 3 and 4 and had it pre-ordered as soon as I could! I love talking Sims with other people,sharing households and stories,so I'm always up for a message.

You can contact me on origin by:DodoTheBirds
 For just a chat or if you want to share households.

I'm about to attempt my first sort of legacy,once I figure out exactly what I want to do! 10 generations is the shot,with some tweaks and weird throw ins. I loved building in the Sims 3,and hopefully once I get a hang of it in the Sims 4 I'll get around to posting some stuff! Looking forward to becoming active in the community. :)

Hiya,

I wouldn't call myself a lurker as I've only just discovered the forums... used Carl's Sims 3 guides like they were some sort of religious icon kind of thing, anyway, I've been playing The Sims since the beginning, including the Sims Stories and Medieval packs, I've always found sims to be the best escape from reality.
