Hi, Deb! Actually, TS4 Sims are pretty good at taking care of their needs -- unless they're using the computer. Then they'll keep playing a game forever. They won't starve, though. I think you have 24 hours from when they go into the red on hunger.
Welcome to the forum, Deb!
They also ignore most of their needs on the gaming rig :o.  My main Sim family is an 8 Sim household.  They each have a gaming rig, and if they are on it for too long, I redirect them to take care of their needs.

In general, I agree that TS4 Sims are good at maintaining their needs. 

However, I've never played any other Sims games --- except for Sim Tower (my husband found that in 2015) and I started to play it.  Then, in September 2015, he bought me TS4.  I didn't realize that before TS4, you had to intervene more to ensure that your Sims kept their needs up.
Sul! Sul!

New to the forum :) Been playing TS4 for a while now, own everything they put out. The city one looks like it is going to be pretty cool! I'm 32, male and I live in southern Illinois. I have a few lots on the gallery-community under shawngossman. Love to see a big SMF forum being put to use :) I used to run my forums on SMF back in the day before moving to XenForo. Nice community, Carl, good job with it! :)

Hello! I just bought the Sims 4 game a few days ago although I am quite familiar with it through TS2, TS3 and The Sim Supply's videos of it.  :) Now that I have it, I have no idea what to do, so I was sneaking around the site for a while, trying to find challenges and guides and whatnot. Despite wanting to try the Immortal challenge, I still think that that's a bit too hard for me, so I'm going to stick to trying to better my building for now, thanks.

As for me, I'm just a kid looking to talk about the game. I'm also a nerd too, so there's that.

Hello! New to the forum, but not to the sims! My name here is the same as in the gallery and on Origin! Feel free to follow on the gallery, and I'd love new friends (who actually play haha) on Origin.

Love the sims! I cheat A LOT because it's the world interactions I like not the having to make money! Not very good at building, but I am pretty good at CAS.  :)

Hello folks!

I'm bookloverblue - geek, Simmer and story scribbler from England.

I first got into the games when I played The Sims 2, and I've loved them ever since.

I like to play around with life states and create unusual scenarios, so most of my stories are non-legacy based.

Feel free to check out my simblr!

I'm not new to the forum per-say, but I'll introduce myself anyway as it's been a couple of years or more since I was an active member.

My name is Neashaleigh (here), although on the Gallery it's Riverleigh (Don't ask).
My real name is Linda. You may call me Neasha, River or Linda. I'll answer to all three.

I love building lots. I was an avid Sims 3 player, but I eventually bought Sims 4 when finances permitted, and haven't looked back. Mainly because despite having a high-end PC, it couldn't handle Sims 3 very well and I suffered numerous crashes, glitches, lag and meltdowns. I have had very few problems with Sims 4 on my PC.

I don't tend to play as much as I used to, but when I do, I'll either be playing the actual game or building. I intend on uploading some of my creations in the swap-shop soon. Probably once I get over feeling like a naughty child for posting my request for a quick refresher in the wrong forum, and having it moved and title changed without so much as a "by your leave!". Actually, I won't be posting anything now anyway because it's getting late where I live and I'm tired. HOWEVER, you can be assured that I will be posting. Soon.

So, a little about me... I'm a step mum to a 19 year old son who has just started university. I live in England with my husband and 3 cats. I love art (drawing and painting), crochet, reading, watching movies, playing computer games and generally socialising with my closest friends. I'm naturally an introvert, but can become quite the chatterbox when I warm up to people.

Um.. yeah... I can't think of much else lol. I hope to see some of you round in the forums!

Sul-sul!
Neasha~

Welcome, Linda. :) My oldest girl, 21 now - oh my, where does the time go? also loves drawing and painting. She has quite a talent for it and is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts at the local community college.

So, welcome again. My main home on the forum is the challenges and Dynasties section. Check it out some time.

Thanks Metropolis! I've had a quick look at the challenges, and I'm tempted to try one. Can you recommend one? Nothing too complicated as I've never done them before :)

Best wishes to your daughter in her studies! Hope it's everything she dreams of :) I'm currently studying GCSE Mathematics at college part time.

Only two challenges are "live" at the moment (all events have start and finish dates, and we're winding down the 2016 Tournament season). Of the two, I suppose the Finale would be a bit more beginner friendly given the team allows you to use the static needs cheat.

Good luck if you decide to dive in and I hope to see you for next year's season. :)

Hey, so I'm actually an older member who's gone through a very long period of inactivity haha. But I figured why not come back and become more active again.

Anyway, I'm NexttoNormal but you can call me Gabi if you prefer. I'm a second year college student studying physical anthropology and I also plan on minoring in museum studies. I work as a volunteer at one of the largest and most-respected natural history museums in the US, and I also am a moderator on a fansite for the old game Zoo Tycoon 2. Other than that my hobbies include painting, writing, and I've been getting more into photography lately.

I'm honestly not sure if I've done this yet, but I started writing my first story, and have been one here a lot lately. So I'm Strawburries, and the Sims 4 is actually my first true sims game. I had the app a while back, but always wanted more from it, and eventually gave it up. Then, I started seeing videos on the Sims 4 all over YouTube. I was hooked. I bought it, and have loved the franchise ever since. So hi. I'm here now. I guess that's all I wanted to say.

Hi @strawburrysimmer  welcome to the forum. I write stories intermittently. I get super enthused and race into one only to get a little bored by the game play and so take a big break until the next new pack etc!
