So I'm returning to Sims after (too many) years, last time I played it was Sims2, 3 was just coming out and I didn't fancy it.

I've gone for the base game with Dogs and Cats bundle.  I had a LOT of CC for Sims2, so this sort of feels like making do with the basics, although there are a lot more basics than there used to be so at the same time as feeling like I am making do with basics, I am also overwhelmed with all the colours and styles, as well as the reviews of stuff packs and expansions.  I know I "need" more, I'm just not sure which yet.

I'm not great at keeping track of forums but I will try :)

Hi, Iím a huge fan of the Sims game and have owned many on various gaming machines, from handheld devices to consoles.
Iíve been playing games for many years (since C64 years 8)) and still play and enjoy games now.
As I love the Sims so much I thought I should really join a forum about them, so we can share advice and help where needed.  ;)

@Karababy56
Wow, so much building experience (and plans on your hard drive, lol)! I'm crossing my fingers that you'll have enough time to join the first building challenge.

@Merula
Welcome to the forum and welcome back to the Sims! No worries about "keeping track," as you'll soon discover.
Check out a few threads, join the challenges if you want (highly recommended), share a screenshot or two, and generally just enjoy the friendly folks on this forum.

@Pazzie
Welcome aboard, you hardcore gamer, you!  8)
This is a great forum with wonderfully creative moderators and equally wonderful and creative forum members. Happy simming!

Hello! I joined this website because my favorite game is the Sims. I've been playing the sims for nearly 10 years now. I've played Sims 2, 3 and 4. I loved all of them and I always liked discussing sims related things. I'm glad I found this forum and I look forward to meeting new people. :P

Hi guys!
My name is Amaya. I’ve been playing The Sims for about 15 years! Although in the last 2 years I’ve invested quite some time in expanding my Sims 4, I have to say Sims 2 is my favorite. I owned Sims 3 for quite a while in 2009-2011, but I never played it much. I wasn’t too impressed with it. I just purchased Sims 4 Laundry Day last night, but fell asleep while it was downloading. Can’t wait to play tonight!

Looking for friends to reply, I use this forum during class and am bored. Hit me up!  :-*

Hello, I'm Veronica. I've been a member of this forum since 2014 but I never actually introduced myself. I love your challenges and this year I'd like to try to participate in the 2018 Tournament.

Hiya, Iím Lily! I had an account of these forums YEARS ago but I donít remember anything about it so Iím starting with a clean slate. I just recently got back into the Sims when my friend allowed me to use her account to download it onto my computer. I formally did some of The Sims 3 Dynasties (The Immortal and then the one with the different species) but then left after losing interest. Iím back and Iím going to be attempting many of the Sims 4 dynasties so wish me luck! I canít wait to make friends :)

Welcome to the forum @amayasims2  @Ronnie8437  and @pugsandroses !!!

Amaya, you did better than I did with the Laundry Day Stuff Pack! I fell asleep trying to watch the pre-release livestream of Laundry Day.
Lol, it's Sunday so you're not in class today, but I'm hitting you up anyway yo!

Veronica, the tournament challenges are always amazing but this year's challenges are especially fantastic!
And you're just in time to plunge in with the Handiness challenge, then practice for the Rug Rats challenge! I really hope you'll join us!

Lily, did you make yourself a pug pet in Cats & Dogs already? :D
As you already know, the Challenges Team has introduced four different dynasty challenges for The Sims 4 so far. Have you decided which one you'll be starting with?
Do you like writing stories? I find I stay more committed to a dynasty challenge if I write a story and flesh out the personalities and lives of my sims.
Good luck!

@oshizu Iím starting the story soon, even if itíll be a bit into my first generation instead of at the beginning like I planned (sheís already married and has a few requirements under her belt). For good ole times sake Iím doing the Immortal Dynasty first, and if I get bored I might open a new save and do the Rival one. Also, I did in fact recreate my pet pug in my normal Sims game! Sheís very lazy like the real one  ;D

Welcome back, Lily. :) In addition to the Dynasties jump into the 2018 Tournament challenges too if you have time. Each one is a pretty minimal time commitment -- nothing like Dynasties.

@oshizu Lol. That happens to me pretty often. I ended up playing Laundry Day the next night and it was awesome. What are some of your favorite packs? I think my favorite Sims 2 one is Apartment Life. Sims 3, generations of course! And Sims 4 I have to say Parenting is my favorite.

I'm also a big fan of the Parenthood xpack, but I love all the extra goodies of Spa Day. Don't get caught on your phone in class. :D

@oshizu At my school we use iPads instead of textbooks and notebooks so thereís no chance theyíll get me hahaha! Can you believe I donít have spa day? I havenít heard anyone particularly mentioning it having good stuff. Now I want to check it out!

Whatís your favorite world? I like Newcrest a lot. Having a whole world of empty lots was needed. Windenburg too I think itís gorgeous. I would definitely buy property there if it were real!

Hi all!

Well... I'm Lord Dracul (Kain_Drakan in community gallery) and found this forum looking something up (trying to build a trailer part that works as apartments), but then I noticed this forum is for Sims 3 and I play Sims 4. So I don't know if the tutorial I found will work. Anyway, nice forum. :) I played the first Sims about a decade ago, and started playing Sims again when I got Sims 4 last year. I enjoy chaotic households, vampires, cats and mean cops LOL.

Welcome aboard, @Lord_Dracul
So your typical household usually stars a vampire who's a mean cop and own cats?
This forum community is super friendly and the Challenges Team offers a year-long tournament of short challenges, a handful of multi-generational dynasty challenges, and theme-based building challenges.
Something for everyone, really.

@amayasims2
What's great about Spa Day is all the mood-boosting objects. Also, sims can learn Wellness socials to shift other sims into specific moods. 
Both really helpful for skilling, school, and careers.

Thank you all for the nice welcome.  :)

@oshizu Well, the vampire mean cop is only one, but I have a lot of vampires.

@amayasims2  (and anyone else interested)
I just have a few creations on the gallery. Look me up as Kain_Drakan, you should be able to find them. There are 2 Drakan households; one is a vampire family and the other I created way before the vampires pack was released. Wow, the non vampire ones were lost when I switched to a new computer and lost everything. Didn't remember I had that one on community library; that one was on the 3rd generation, ouch! There is the Claudio family, a spin off of my own family (except the alien and the dog) LOL! Kids are grown up now, but wow, it was very chaotic at night with Alfred waking up the entire family screaming about a monster under the bed... Every. Single. Night! And there is a Vanstrom Dracul (not related to the Claudio as they are in separate games) with his 2 cats. There is Elizabeth Nance, the vampire mean cop, LOL. I played the alien from the Claudio family as a good cop his entire career, he's retired now. Playing Nance as the bad cop has been fun as heck! And finally, the Zorah household, an alien single mom with her silly toddler. Had planned on her having her 2nd kid from a vampire dad, but heck no! Got adult Vanstrom (from the Claudio family) get abducted and impregnated by aliens and that kid was buggy as u-no-wat as toddler. So I went out to main menu without saving and went back to when the kid was a newborn and sent her to the homeworld.

Hello everyone!

I've been playing the Sims 3 and reading this forum for several months, but for some reason never worked up the courage to make an account until today. I recently started my first Immortal Dynasty (I'm writing about it on a separate blog which I may or may not ever show to another human soul) and have been wandering around this forum a lot lately looking for tips and such. I sort of feel like I'm a few years behind in terms of Sims 3 hype (I love reading all the stories from the glory days), but that's all right. I just wanted to sign on and say hey.

Hi there fellow Simmers!

Just joined today, I've been playing Sims for years, starting with Sims 1 on Gamecube and currently Sims 3 on PC.

I use the same name over on the Sims 3 forums, but haven't been active over there for a long time.

Wheeee, I finally joined the forum. Hat tip to @oshizu for unintentionally leading me to this forum. Oshizu doesn't know who I am, lol,(-wave!- hello!) but I devoured their Wordpress blog and then got so itchy to read more of what they wrote, went a little stir crazy, then randomly noticed in their Mori legacy challenge that they mentioned someone's retail strategy(can't remember whose), thought I'd try to find it for my own legacy challenge, googled for it, google results turned up that there's actually a FORUM here(holy cow, how did I never notice the forum button? I always thought this website was just guides!), then on a random lark I searched the forum for oshizu's name and found their townie legacy and devoured that  ;D Ah, I'm coming across a little stalker-y, aren't I? I swear, I just love your writing style, Oshizu...hehe. Well, now I have so many more legacies and challenges to read through, and maybe I'll share my own! So excited to be here!

Welcome to the forum @SimFan1228 !
Whoa, you date waaaay back as a simmer!


Welcome to the forum @rika1431   LOL

Its founder Carl is genius, the Challenges Team members are brilliant, and the forum members are friendly, helpful, and fun.
Joining some of the tournament challenges really helps with the longer dynasty challenges.
And, of course, there are all the dynasty challenges to try out and write/read about.

Hey Guys!! My name is Lauren, I'm new to this forum, but I've been playing The Sims games since before the first sims game!! (to clarify, I used to play Sim City all the time, and I loved how I could manipulate my citizens via disasters and such, so when they came out with "The Sims" I was ecstatic!!!) Do you guys remember the robot you could earn? I loved him! He would clean the house, make food instantly, and fill social need as a friend; he was awesome!! Also, do you guys remember what food looked like back then? Haha, no matter what meal you made, it all looked the same! lol  ;D The Sims games have come so far! I have always loved playing them, and I imagine I will always love playing them!! Anyways, I digress. I'm so happy that there are so many awesome people who love the sims as much as I do here!! It's nice to meet you all!  ;) :D
