Hello New Members! :)

What is a "New Member" of the Sims Forums?

Look under your avatar beside "Rank." Does it say "New Member?" If so, this means your activities within the forums can be quite restrictive. You may not be able to post signatures, pictures, etc.

How Will This Thread Help Me?

One way of gaining points toward becoming a full-fledged Member is to interact with others and have them react to your posts (ie. "Like," "Awesome," etc). This thread is a way of getting to Membership stat while having fun. You can introduce yourself, chat about the game, pose questions, or get to know others.

PLEASE REMEMBER: Please do not directly ask for point-based reactions (ie. "Press Like/Awesome on this post so I can become a member") per the forum rules.

Some Questions to Get You Started
1. What is your favorite EP/SP and why ?

2. What is your favorite thing about the game?

3. Do you play with cheats? If so, which ones?

4. Do you have any tips/tricks you'd like to share?

5. Do you have The Sims 4? If so, what are your favorite and least favorite things?

    I'm still relatively new here. I bought a few expansions and I like Pets the most, because I love animals. The Sims 3 is quite nice. I can sit in front of it for 12 hours a day (and I do). That's the reason I am only allowed to play on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. :neutral_face: <br />
    It might just be the new game buzz (sort of like in game caffeine- seriously, what's the point of caffeine?!) and I don't know when the buzz crash will come, but I hope it only comes in a year or something.<br />
    I have used the cheat console twice. My horse was stuck in the ground so I enabled testing cheats and teleported him out. The second time was to disable testing cheats, if that counts.<br />
    What are the best skills to invest in (in game)? How do you make the substance that cures plant people? Can you make your own dive spots to scuba dive in? What can I do to keep the game interesting?<br />
    Keep Smiling!

    Hello :) To cure a Plantsim, you can pay 3000 simeleons at the Science Facility for a cure, or create super spice on the science research station, or create/buy the level 7 potent cure elixir using alchemy if you have the Supernatural EP.
    You can create your own dive spots. This link explains about it.

    Hello @empr3ssliz :) Building is a fun part of simming. Using the cheats can be very helpful when trying to fix up problems that occur. Also motherlode is great to use to enable our sims to move into homes that they may not be able to afford otherwise or have items that will he helpful in their sim lives. If you move the urn from your home, that will remove the ghost from the home,
    I hope that you continue to have fun simming! :)

    1. What is your favorite EP/SP and why? I don't have a favorite EP.

    2. What is your favorite thing about the game? The fact that you can play with life. It's a great distraction if yours is totally plum.

    3. Do you play with cheats? If so, which ones? motherloade, testingcheatsenabled/

    4. Do you have any tips/tricks you'd like to share? Uh no..

    5. Did you buy the Sims 4? If so, what are your favorite and least favorite things? I didn't buy the game yet. I think my favorite thing about the game would probably be CAS, and my least favorite might be the fact that there's no toddlers.

    Hello @jennihope :) Motherlode and testingcheatsenabled are very useful cheats to use.All the EPS have great features in them. I hope that you have fun Simming this weekend :)

    I also really want to be able to post pictures. I'm thinking about making posts for the places I have built. I have two places up on the gallery and want to get more people to see my stuff. That and I want to join in on the games that they have posted on the forums. You have to get 50 points to become a member, right?

    Hi everyone! I'm still getting used to my profile page and have just begun playing the Sims4. The navigation confuses me a bit, I'm sure I'll get it down. Not sure why I'm unable to post/pick a profile picture. I'm curious about that. So what are my favorite ep/sp from the Sims3, I love Seasons and Pets, I enjoy all the packs that give new hair, furniture, and add new play to my game. I love Seasons because, well there's 4 and I grew up in California where there's pretty much 2! I moved to North Idaho about 23 years ago and that was my first experience with all 4 Seasons. I now live in Alaska and despite what some people think, we do not all live in igloos, we have 4 Season here as well, Winter being the longest. Why pets? Well growing up my house was the house that took in all the stray animals in our neighborhood. At one time we had 16 dogs (three adult, one 7 days after we found her gave birth to 13 pups) 9 cats, and 2 parrots and 2 cockatiels. I loved having all those pets! Now that I have my own family, we have all wanted to have a dog, the apartments we've lived in do not allow pets.
    I've played my Sims4 once so far, I miss being able to create my own colors for furniture, hair, clothing, etc. I'm not sure if there's a way to do that, if there is, I haven't found it yet. I love the graphics! I'm excited to play more and to meet more Simmers. I'm still visiting my friends on Sims3 and still play Sims3.
    I do use a few cheats, money (for Sims3 it was the familyfunds cheat, and moveobjects on/off) I'm happy that Sims4 has included the moveobjects on/off cheat, I'd like to see familyfunds back.
    I'm excited to learn more about Sims4 and ways to enrich my experience with my game.
    Thanks for the opportunity to say hi!
    Happy Simming :smiley:

    Hello @presswon4engrish :) You do need to have 50 points to become a member and post pictures. It is great that you have been enjoying doing building. There are lots of different sections to simming. It is great that we can have fun playing, building, creating and also writing stories about the sims. Have fun Simming! :)
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 113,357 Member
    Hello @temerald7667 :) Seasons and Pets are great EPs. It is great seeing the sims experiencing all the different types of weather and the different activities that each season brings. It is nice that you and your family cared for many stray animals as you were growing up. It was caring of you all to take in the stray animals and give them a nice home. I hope that you have lots of fun sims 4 simming! :)
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 113,357 Member

    @rosemow Thank you my dear friend, I wish I could do that now, take in the strays. Someday, then I'll really drive my hubby CrAzY LOL but since he loves me, he'll put up with it :) What are you favorite and least favorite things about Sims4? I love that they included cheats like MOO. What do you think about that? Hugs and Much Love
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 113,357 Member
    Hello @Tyler4768 :) It is great that you have started posting on the forums. Have fun posting! I will look forward to seeing your showcase thread and builds if you open up a thread. It is great that we have MOO back in sims 4! It is a very helpful and fun cheat to use!
    Have fun simming! :)
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 113,357 Member
    Hello Temerald :) Having MOO back in the game is great! There are lots of fun and creative ways that we can use the cheat in our builds. Sims 4 is fun to play, with new features and things for our sims to enjoy doing and seeing.

    Hi my fellow simians(lol) I have been playing the sims since "The Sims" came out. I usually play TS3 when I'm stress and want to get away from life. Now that I have started playing the game again I now remember why I quit playing...... I get so lost in the game its not even funny and I love building. My favorite EP would have to be University. So far both of my sims have 2 degrees and one sim has reach level 10 in his career. I predict in the year 2015 my husband will throw my laptop out the window lmao. Now to go create my wishlist. Later and HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!
