Hello Bogie. :)

Hee hee, I remember the babysitters in Sims 2. It was always this senile old lady who did nothing but feed the kid like once an hour and toss the trash on the floor and then watch TV. And sometimes you couldn't make her leave and she just stayed in your house for days.
Oh, and she peed on the floor a lot. :D

OMG!! ROFL!!  ;D

I remember her!! I remember once, my family was exhausted, and of course in Sims 2, they didn't eat or tinkle at work so they were already in a bad mood. The husband was extremely neat, so when he came home already peeved, he had puddles to clean up!! To make matters worse, she kept trying to talk to him! When he didn't respond, she grabed a plate of food, then threw it on the floor when I dismissed her!!! I seriously contemplated building a room, using the build/buy mode cheat and move her into it just to get rid of her!!

I didn't though... my "evil stressed twin" only comes out in September!!  :P

I will love him and squeeze him and pet him and call him George!!

Hi all..

New guy here  :) *Insert funny little smiley who is wavering to everybody here.*

Let me first tell you a little about me... I just got the game a few weeks ago, so I am still new to the game, still things to learn. But I am not all new to The Sims, I bought the Sims 1 back in the days, when it came out, and every single expansion part for the Sims 1, so I own the whole Sims 1 collection. But then Sims 2 came out, and I was like, I have every thing for Sims 1, and now its useless... So I never actually bought Sims 2. When I then heard that Sims 3 was coming out, I thought to myself, that I needed to try that game again, so I went in and bought it, and WOW have that game changed :o :o

So now I am here with Sims 3, let me say that my Sims does not run as an English version, (I am Danish :P) so I do not always know what the different stuff is called in English, but I do my best to guess it :P Also now you know why English is not that good.

Back to the Sims again, I have played it a lot since I got it, and a lot of things I am happy about, but a few things really disappointed me, like stuff you could do in Sims 1, But cant in Sims 3. Like example, one of the first families I made, I got pretty quick tired of them, because one of the kept scaring everybody. So I thought about the Sims 1, and remember that I actually used to kill my Sims in a fire (Yes i have a very weird sense of humor :P ) But I could not find any fireplaces, so I was sitting wondering how to set them on fire, when one of the Sims started a fire while cooking. So again I thought back and remember how it was on Sims 1, you would pause the game, set up a fireplace, and lay carpets all around the whole house filling the whole house with them, and then when the Sims went and started the fire, there would go like 1-2 seconds and the whole house would just be on fire, every single room, would just be a huge fire. I thought well in Sims 3 that is going to be just plain awesome. So I put down carpets, but ran out of money, before i got halfway. I thought that would be enough to start with, and went to set it on fire, after a few tries my Sim failed again in cooking, and set the stove on fire... But the fire just stayed on the stove, it did not move to the whole house, it took really long time to for it to spread, and when it did, the first fire would die out. At the end the fire died out by itself. I was sitting watching that and was like, was that it? The kitchen burned, and the rest stayed? The Sims was not even closed to be killed by that... But I must say that the burned out stuff look real cool...

I could go on with other stuff, but this is just an introduction of myself, and I think you got an idea now who I am. ;)

BTW this site is real awesome, I found while searching for way to get logic skills faster... I have read most of the guides written here.. Thanks a lot Carl...

P.S I have found out where to buy a fire place now  8)

I am Danish

So am I. 8)

Velkommen.

I have the English language version though, like you say it's easier to find tips and stuff in English. So if you have a problem finding something, you can tell me what the Danish game calls it and I can probably guess the English word.

And yeah, sims are a bit harder to kill now. If you give them the unlucky trait they will probably die a lot but then the Grim Reaper (Døden?) will just bring them back to life. Øv...

Hi Quizmo...yes, it is more difficult to kill sims by fire now...but our moderator has much more experience with it than most.  You can probably get some useful tips from him.  :D

Happy simming!  :)

Well guess I'd better add my bit. Gosh there are a lot of Danes on here!  :) I live on the other side of the world, in beautiful Australasia. I have a very uninventive nickname because frankly, I joined when I was tired and couldn't be bothered trying to think of something mystical and interesting. So sorry about that but hey, at least it's short. I am wife to 1, and mum to 1.

I have been a big Sims fan from the get go, with all the Sims 1 expansion packs (except the Pet ones; never could be bothered with those). whe Sims 2 came out, I very sneakily thought, mwhahaha I know you will bring out a new and better Sims soon so I shall not buy ANY expansion packs!!! Lo and behold, not long later, the magnificent Sims 3...but the SPECS!!! Goodness me. Luckily my computer died so I got to buy a new one...which happened to be good enough to play it (heh heh). And here I am, one Google search later, on this fantastic forum. Love the way it is like a small community - I can't stand those large forums where you hardly post something before it is swallowed in a plethora of new messages.

I can't wait for WA! I really enjoyed the Castaway game on PS, and it seems like WA will be leaning a bit more towards this than the previous Holiday expansions.

Seriously need help with building, I am completely useless and all my houses are like little squares - hate that kind of thing in real life! I think it comes from trying to please the Sims on 2 with that ridiculous 'layout' bar! Any tips are most welcome!

Hi Kat...welcome.  Just a suggestion as my houses used to be little squares also, well now they are actually quite lovely little squares.  ;D  I get many of my ideas from the sims3 site from the forum, Creative Corner.  They have some really great ideas on how to build.  ;D

Well, I will add my piece.
I'm Cel (short for Celeano de morte, not my real name, but I thought it was cool.) I'm a 19 yr old housewife in Delaware. Other than the oh so exciting house work that I do, Sims is my entertainment every day. I've been an avid player of the sims ever since my dad bought me sims 1 when it first came out. I managed to beg my way into getting all the expansions for that and then Sims 2 came out and I got a part-time job and bought all the expansions for that when it came out. Then EA advertised for Sims 3 and I about had a heart attack, I was so excited. I've been playing sims 3 since it came out.
I stumbled upon this jewel of a site when I was looking to see if the cheat babyboom was real (it's not, sadly) but I came across the baby boomer challenge and knew that I had to join this happy little community. Sorry if I drive you lot crazy by talking too much on here, I have little to do besides play online, and play sims..(My hubby is in the airforce and I am thousands of miles from my friends and family.)

Welcome Cel.  I too am a stay at home wife/mother.  I do home schooling for my youngest daughter of 3 and my hubby is in the navy and stationed in another state for the next who knows how long.  I understand about being away from friends and family and just know that I am here if you want to chat.

Currently my husband is in San Diego, CA.  Could end up there for the next 3 years with home visits on leave every 6 months or so.  Thank god I have been at this for almost 20 years and am used to it by now.  It is harder on the kids and the dogs then me.  Keep your chin up!

I guess we'll see that when I can refresh once ever 15 minutes or so and always see a new post. We are growing in members, but we have a lot of silent people that log in and don't ever post. Seeing the site hit #1 for Sims 3 guide will also age her up in my eyes ;)

I have been playing some of the challenges so now it is time to introduce myself. 

My name is Teresa.  I am a moderator on the boolprop forums and a member of Neighborlysims forums.  Probably a few others although those are the only ones where I am active. 

I live in central Texas and I am married with two kids, three cats, and a dog.  I quit working in 2007 when I realized I had been working at the same company for exactly half my life (42years/21years).  Since that time I have been helping my dad out with his business doing financial analysis and I am currently a substitute for a local school district when they call me.  My daughter is graduating from community college this semester with her Associates and then, hopefully, will be transferring to a state university to finish up her Bachelors in Linguistics.  My son is in his last year of high school and I aam really looking forward to the empty nest, although I will miss their noise and mess and eating all the food.

I started playing Sims 1 in August of 2005.  After a few months playing I picked up Sims 2.  I have every expansion of both and was extremely excited to see Sims 3 release.  I like to play "shorter" challenges in that I get bored by the 3rd generation of the longer ones.  That being said I have completed a regular legacy and an alphabet legacy in Sims 2 and recently completed a regular legacy in Sims 3.  I have an apocalypse in progress, which I have not touched in a few weeks. 

I found this site while looking for maps of collectibles and then I found something else - new challenges I have never tried - and I was hooked.

Hi Teresa! 

We're certainly glad you found us and decided to hang around.  I'm in Texas, too (the DFW area) and just came back from a weekend trip to Fredicksburg down in the Hill Country a couple of weeks ago.  And since you're a boolprop moderator...  would you tell me what that is exactly?  :)

Boolprop forums is a very large and active Sims community.  That was the first forum I ever joined related to Sims and I stuck around long enough that they made me a moderator, just over 3 years now.  It is a good community, but very big.

I am just south of Waco but I have family in Frisco and Commerce so every once in awhile we have to make the long trek to DFW area.

Ah...  what I actually meant is what is boolprop.  I've seen the term around and thought maybe you would know what it means.  Sorry for the confusion.  :)

LOL  boolprop was the cheat command for sims 2 - now it is testingcheatsenabled true/false, before it was boolprop testingcheatsenabled.  There were many cheats that fell under boolprop  code.

Hi, my name is Senny Paine and I am a Sims addict... [Hi, Senny].  I've been playing Sims since, oh, I was in third grade?  That would make me what, eight.  Yea, eight.  And yea, that means I started with The Sims.  Acquired all the many expansion packs for that, then Sims2 came out.  I played that for the first time at my cousin's house.  And then I acquired Sims2 and all expansion and stuff packs except for Celebration- which is insanely hard to find like everywhere in Texas.  And then Sims3 came out.. And I am eagerly awaiting the 16th of this month.  Might I notify you that the 16th is a new moon?  New moons symbolize new beginnings, it is when The Maiden, The Mother, and The Crone restart their cycle.  I think EA planned this, and if so, I think we have much to look forward to!

On other information about me I write, I have a website, I love the Beatles, Shakespeare, Emilie Autumn, and books- all books.  I'm a senior in high school, its such a drag.  I'm a Cancer-Leo Cusp, and a Sheep in the Chinese zodiac.  I really don't like to argue, I find it pointless.  After five years in high school (I dropped out the end of last year to find myself, so I didn't graduate last year as planned) you just learn to agree and not cause problems.  

I like to talk...  And to make friends... And the person who says he loves me doesn't like it when I talk about "pointless bs" such as sims.  Which is when I was looking up what traits to pick for a liftetime wish and found Carl's Sims3 Guide and saw it had a forum- oh was I pleased!  I now have people to talk to!  The Sims3 forums confuse me, and I get lost, so this simplicity with an easy way to return to the main site, well this is the bees knees!

So, who wants to be my friend?! Anybody!?  If you decide to be my friend contact me on any of my messengers, or use my MSN messenger to email me, because its the same.  And I don't need you spamming my school email.  That's for my teachers to spam.  Silly teachers.  

(I did say I like to talk, right?)

heeeeey! my name is Gigi, came across this guide when i googled 'why does my evil sim have a red glow?' lol

it's so informative and i just wanna thank you because i know you guys put in alot of hard work!

i just LOVED the sims when i was in grade school and i gave up on it after awhile. a couple months ago i bought sims 3 because i was curious to see if the same game i loved as a kid was even better as an adult, but i stopped playing after 1 night! it was so confusing, lol.

the past couple weeks i've had alot of free time so i picked it back up and so glad i did cause it's AWESOME. i like sims 3 so much i even went backwards and even got sims 2 cause i wanted to play that one also!

anywho, just wanted to introduce myself, happy simming :)
