Gigi, welcome to the site. Did you find your answer on the red glow for your evil Sim? That's what happens when they hit Emperor of Evil status in the Criminal career.

Welcome Gigi!

i like sims 3 so much i even went backwards and even got sims 2 cause i wanted to play that one also!

That's cool, Sims 2 is a really, really good game too, even more so with some of the expansions. I find it hard to go back now that I've gotten used to the features of Sims 3 but I do miss a lot of things from TS2.

You should have a male sim use the expensive telescope a lot outside at night, weee! :o :D

Hi folks! Been lurking in the shadows a while, and decided today I actually had something intelligent to say.
I never played The Sims, but my husband played all the expansions. When he got The Sims 2 I was gradually pulled in (resistance is futile..  :D) and we had lots of fun comparing how our towns came out. When 3 went on reserve I couldn't resist the green plumbbob USB drive so I had to get us both that.
I really, really miss a lot of the choices and different items available in Sims 2, but as 3 gets more expansions I'm hoping it closes the gap. I can't wait for a University-type expansion! The world needs more toga parties.

RC: Welcome! Yeah, I liked University too. It was nice to be able to get a jump start on the career, although you had spent as much play time in the university as it would have taken to get those promotions anyway. it was a very different play experience, though, which is what these expansions usually hope to achieve -- I'm most looking forward to running my own business and having a pet, but yeah, we must wait a couple years for all our wishes to be fulfilled.

Hey, I'm Waltz.

I have been on this site, not joined, and loved what I found and decided to join. Which was about two hours ago. I found Carl's Guide off of google, around a month ago. I was looking for all of the promotions on each job, to help me know which skills to work on first. Then I happened to stumble onto the guide, and liked what I saw, then found the forum for it.

I've played TS2 and liked it enough to get two expansion packs(Bon Boyage(to which I haven't even downloaded yet) and Nightlife). Then, since I loved it, I got TS3.

Anyways, I hope all of you have a good night(or day).

More or less formerly introducing myself here.
You can call me Draigh. I'm from the Netherlands where I am studying psychology. Always had an interest in different kind of games and that included the Sims. I have been playing them on and off for the last couple of years, mostly Sims 2. But I have to say that I like the Sims 3 more with the whole integration of family with neighbourhood. Too bad of the recent bugs in those patches.

Anyway... ended up here after I was looking for something, and found the whole guide. Have linked it since and used it often to check things. Am currently very curious about the whole Nectar making stuff. But due to the last patch I lost my saves and had to start over.

Welcome Draigh. I have a psychology degree from St. Louis University, so we have a common interest. I put the education to use every day when I try and make sense of why my 3 girls do ridiculous things. Typically, the light bulb goes on and I say, "Oh, yeah. I did the same thing."

It's great that the site is attracting players from all over the world. It brings us all together in our common love for a game and we educate each other in our differences and perspectives in the process.

MY name is spunky or mespunky, i have been blogging on like RPG and i recently quit (because they are addicting and my mom got me in trouble because of my grades) anyways, i started simming with the sims 2 and when the released the Sims 3 i was overjoyed I'm addicted. I am still learning how to build so i spend most of my time making and playing families. I found this forum through Carls Guide because i was having troubles with something and i recently got up the courage to join. I love the atmosphere here its so great. Anyways there isn't anything really that special about me.

Aww! Spunky! I must tell you that although this game is fun, and an escape from our everyday lives, it is important that you focus on school. I am certainly not lecturing by any means! I promise! Sometimes adults say things, and it's like yeah ok whatever - but there is conventional wisdom that comes with age. Sometimes I think we say things but forget what it's like to be a kid / teen again!

Everyone has something that IS special about them. Never, ever forget that. I was the fat kid in school that everyone made fun of. People talked about me all the time. I did well in school because frankly, that is the ONE thing that no one could take away from me. Eventually, they made fun of that too. Being smart and fat - double whammy! I overcame all that, though it was hard at times. It all worked out though. This forum is wonderful, and there are many, many people here who are willing to help and listen, so welcome!  ;)
I will love him and squeeze him and pet him and call him George!!

I just got high speed internet and discovered this great site.  I started playing Sims a few years ago when I was being treated for ovarian cancer, and it has become my winter addiction (it's TOO COLD in Saskatchewan in winter!).  My characters are mostly named after my dogs; the current favourite is Sir James of Schipperke.  Thanks to all who have posted their game experiences and tips.  Love the pictures!

Well glad you did Kreathyr. It's up to number 20 nowadays :)


On google I was going to search carl sims 3 guide, but once I typed in "Car" your site was up under the suggestions; I am not certain if it was a one time thing or not however.

Yeah, it' made it on the autocomplete although not that famously: It's being bested by Carl's Steaks and shoes but seasoning is taking a beating. Lol, anyway..

Spunky and Schipperke: Glad you like the guide and welcome to the community

I should introduce myself properly, I suppose!

I'm a mother of a one year old and have been too busy until recently to even think of getting the Sims 3.  However, I am pretty confident that I will be receiving a copy tomorrow (and hopefully World Adventures too), so I'm really excited about diving in and playing.  I've been playing the Sims since the original game, but this is the first time I've received my copy of the game without trying out somebody else's, so this should be fun!

Hello peeps!! What a gem of a find I have found here! Woot!  Hmm...warning: Long intro, watch your head!  ;D  I'm a SAHM of 2 wonderful teenage boys, ages 16 & 13 and married to the most awesome man in the world! He has made sure that I have every Sim game/expansion/stuff pack to date since the release of Sims 1,  which contributes to his awesomeness, lol.  ;D  (Not the 'MySims', never had an interest in those.)

When I got Sims3, it was fun at first, but Sims2 still had me wrapped around it's finger and I didn't play much of 3 at all. It ended up sitting in its case ignored. Then, WA was released. Hubby got a copy hot off the shelf, brought it home and said "maybe this will spark interest anew for 3!"  He also bought a new graphics card for my desktop computer and Wow! He was right! (I still only have the base game on my laptop due to the fact I may wish to play without all the new WA stuffs!   ;) )After installing the card and the game, cursing under my breath a bit at all the trouble I had with EADM and updates, uninstalling base game, rinse & repeat a couple of times, I finally got everything to working correctly. Well, almost everything. Riverview...ugh!! I just don't play in Riverview since most of the community buildings are missing. But anyway, while in pursuit to find a cure/fix for Riverview, I became very sidetracked when I found Carl's Sims 3 website! OMG!! It felt like finding a pot of gold at the end of the screwy rainbow!  ;D

I spent a few days reading and all the while blown away, thinking I can't believe Sims 3 has all that stuff to do, and all the thought that has gone into the trait combinations and the impact on a Sim's life!  I should have suspected such integrations from my Sims 2 experiences but I'd never really given the 3's base game a chance you see.. Oh! And then I found --- The Challenges!! What fun!! Now, I'm not a forum type-a-gal. But I decided I had to come to the forums and get in on the new Sim action I'd found, and here I am  ;D

I am a Sims 3 newb. But with all the wonderful content and talent I've found here & at Carl's, I'm positive that I will learn fast. And I already know for certain that I'll enjoy your good peoples' company as I do so.  ;)

Happy Simming~

Hi Laphalot and welcome to the site! I'm glad the challenges caught your eye. It's no secret that challenges are a main attraction to yours truly given the amount of time I spent in that section. Jump in the new one starting in a couple days. It should be a lot of fun and you don't need to feel intimidated. All of the experienced players are here to help and can guide you to success.

Hi everyone!  ;D

I┤m using my same name as in the official forums, RoyalPlumbob. I have the Grimmy as my avatar!

I found this site while I was navigating through the forums and clicked on Carl┤s signature, which redirected me here. You guys do an awsome job on the guides, everytime I check, I learn something new! Also I like the forums very much, since here if someone has a problem, everyone tries to find a way to fix it and learn from it unlike the oficial forums where everyone just complains at ``how horrible┤┤ ::) the game is  :(. I will  to help in anything I can, and hope to make buddies  :P.

P.S. Carl, Pam I sent you friend requests on the official site, I hope it┤s OK  :-\ .

You know, I've been here often enough to make 'Junior Member' and realised I've never properly introduced myself, so here I am.

30-something mother of 1 with another on the way (so expect me to disappear for a while in spring :o), married to a lovely husband (who bought me TS3 and WA).  I've been playing Sims since the original and enjoyed all of them.  I'm a bit of a book-worm, and I guess I'm now family-oriented, I can cook a bit but hate housework.

Love this site and the guide so well done Carl, Pam & Metro for making it so good.
