Hi!

Been playing Sims 3 for a little time now and the Carl's Guide is where I got to first before entering the forums.  Thanks for the great walk-throughs and info to help with a good start.

Checked the forum once in a while, and since it's a very positive atmosphere, decided to post a bit.

I just found this forum recently and I love it.  There is so much information here.  I have been playing the Sims since it first came out years ago and have been rather addicted at times.  With Sims3 I am a late starter.  We got the game (I am one of those who always preorder and rush down to get the game on release day) and everyone else played it and I didn't start until right before Ambitions came out and this is a very different game now or so it seems to me.  I am thinking of doing a reinstall and even that seems very different and I am lost.  LOL  Anyway, just wanted to say hello and how I appreciate this forum.  I am sort of missing the ability to play a Prosperity Challenge but otherwise I love Sims3.  I tend to need a goal such as a challenge but my game is producing strange children so I am afraid to start anything until I do a reinstall.

Welcome all the new people.

Danilisaur, what a cool name is that! Do you actually like dinosaurs? I did have a nickname of Letosaurs, because I really was into dinsaurs at younger age (still do sometimes).

Well it indeed does. ;) Maybe we can discuss those extinct pre-birds on the babble thread. Otherwise we will be a bit too much off topic here, I think. :)

Hi everybody! I'm Swede1992.



Fun fact: I am very likely to be the biggest Simpsons nerd in the history of humankind. Noone except my stupid twinbrother have ever beaten me in a Simpsons quiz, no matter how irrelevant and stupid the information may be. :P


Ummm, maybe second biggest Simpsons nerd?  My son could probably win over you AND your twin brother in a Simpsons quiz hands down. lolz  Not only has he memorized every episode since the first to the most current, but owns every Simpsons article of "stuff" every created.  Our annual holiday gift to him?  More Simpsons stuff he just might not own, (but probably does).  Now if I could only get him interested in Sims he'd be more than perfect.

Kudos on your choice of addictions!  Sims and Simpsons, what could be better?
What?  Grannies can't play games?
I speak perfect Nooblik, (and some Simlish)!

You can make simpsons in The Sims 3. A lot of people have already build the Simpsons house.

Welcome to our Forum, Grandpa!  I don't have kids or grandkids, but I'm older than Metro and I'll challenge you for oldest member!  Lol.

I'm 70 years old.  Can you top that Pam?  lol

Ok, since I opened my big mouth guess I'd better introduce myself, but fair warning, I talk a lot.  I call myself Joria here and on Fiesta, another game I love to play, though not so much now that Sims3 is here.  I saw my granddaughter play Sims1 years ago, tried it, got frustrated and went on to other games.  When Sims2 came out I gave it a shot and got hooked. Seriously addicted to the point of all nighters and at my age!  Well, heck, there's not much more a 70 year old handicapped broad can do, now is there?  

I played Sims2 mostly for house building, landscaping etc.  The Sims themselves drove me bonkers with their antics and my lack of skills, so pretty much all I did was build everything I could.  I am seriously technologically challenged so it was fun learning a few new "words", netspeak, geekspeak, and so on.  It didn't help with the technology challenged part, but you kind people have made life a lot easier on that part.
I bought every EP and SP, or got them for gifts, for Sims2, but soon got tired of just fighting the system, (elderly pc), mods with glitches, and slooooowww lags.

Then Sims3 came out. I put away my spinning wheel and knitting and got started.  Of course, I couldn't just ease my way in, but immediately started with a legacy challenge I found on the Sims3 forum.  (thankyou Pinstar)  It died.  Start again.  It died.  Uninstall/reinstall,  do it twice and call me in the morning, several times and legacy starts later.  (I am definitely ocd about this.  I WILL complete a legacy!)  I have begged for a gift of Ambitions but am leery of installing it if I get it because of all the difficulties I continue to have with WAR and don't EVEN mention HELS, which I now refuse to install.

  My new pc runs Windows7 which seems to have problems with the game itself.  New video card, driver and soon a second cooling system later and I think I'm good to go.

Same frustrations with other forums as others have mentioned and then I found this one.  I heard harp music and angels singing and a bright light glowed around my monitor.  Sigh.  I'm home, I'm home.  A clean, friendly, actually helpful place for the lost ones.  What a relief!  So thank you mucho muches for this site!

Personal info:  You got my age already, lol.  I'm happily married to a wonderful man who keeps me supplied with Sims, cooks my meals and in general is living the "in sickness" part of the vows and has for years.  We are currently raising our great-granddaughter who is 14 and just recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease.  I've homeschooled her since birth but next year she hopes to go to high school if she can get well enough to do so.  We've raised six kids, one grandkid and now busy with this last one.  I believe there is little one cannot do if you really decide to do it and then figure out how.  I never give up.  I like people in small doses, (tend to be a loner), and avoid crowds but love to talk in forums and email.  Boredom is boring so I seldom if ever am.  I live in Oregon, USA,  (pronounced Orih-gun, NOT Or ee gone), and am very happy to be here.  Hugs all around to all of you.

Welcome to the forum Joria! Wauw, that is so cool, 70 years old and loving The Sims 3. Most people of your age don't even like computers. And I like your story by the way. Talking a lot here is nice to read mosty. :)
Nothing of the above was meant to be insulting or so, but I really have a lot of respect for elder people who can handle computers. :D

For any future computer problems, there is a technical section here where you can ask away about anything related to hard- or software issues which can result in having a hard time playing The Sims 3, or even not be able to play it at all. Al lot of techboys and girls are hanging out there, ready to help people wherever they can.
Unfortunialty I am not one of them, although I like to help people to. I'm more the creative person. Creative in gameplay, and creative in searching for solutions. So welcome again, and I am sure you will have a great time here. :D

Welcome to the forum Joria, I'm happy you're enjoying the forum. We're trying really hard to make it good. :)

Ummm, maybe second biggest Simpsons nerd?  My son could probably win over you AND your twin brother in a Simpsons quiz hands down. lolz  Not only has he memorized every episode since the first to the most current, but owns every Simpsons article of "stuff" every created.  Our annual holiday gift to him?  More Simpsons stuff he just might not own, (but probably does).  Now if I could only get him interested in Sims he'd be more than perfect.

Ha, ha. It was not meant as a challenge. Hey, there's >6 billion people in the world; someone besides myself (and that twin) must have memorised all the episodes. ;D

Thanks for the warm welcome you guys!  The first computer I ever gamed on cheated at chess and checkers and took up an entire floor of a building about the size of the average college dorm.  Only got one shot at it and then was computer deprived for way too many years.  Raising a small village will do that for you.

I keep telling my kids, "hey, I'm old, not dead". lol

Welcome to our Forum, Joria!

I am officially ousted as the oldest person on the Forum! I think Grandpa Muleskinner was older than me, but we haven't seen him around lately. I really like that we attract Sims 3 players of all ages. It makes for a very interesting mix of community members.

We're glad you found your way here and hope that you'll consider this home for a long time!  :)
