    I started playing sims in 2013, and have come to enjoy it. Although I don't play as often anymore.

    That explains a lot.

    Hello everyone most know me here except for the newbies as I'm well known.

    I'm Catloverplayer aka CLP known by a lot of people including Simguru Graham. :p

    The Sims is my Passion whether it's sims 1,2,3 or 4. You can also find me posting on twitter and simsvip.

    I love cats and I'm a gamer so that's how catloverplayer come about.

    I play other games as well. Currently awaiting Batman Arkham Knight on PS4 coming in June and hoping Namco will release an Ace Combat Game on PS4.

    I listen to all music types but prefer beautiful/easy listening and standards.

    I'm really looking foward to what will be coming to Sims 4 thru expansion packs and gamepacks. I"m hoping for Seasons,A Dating Expansions Pack and a Tropical Vacation EP or GP.

    What do I want in the game you ask? Hottubs,A Vibrating Heart Shaped Bed,Lots of Romantic Interactions,Cars,Auto Roofs,Door Locks,Story Progression and Bath Towel Turbans,Bandanas and Wedding Veils.

    Hello @catloverplayer :) It is great that you enjoy cats and playing a variety of games. Gaming is a fun and enjoyable way of spending time. All the versions of The Sims are great. It is nice that you have been playing since the beginning. It is exciting to look forward to the GTW EP and what will be the other expansion and game packs in Sims 4.
    Happy simming! :)

    Heya, UK here or, Scotland specifically.

    Played this series since shortly after the launch of TS, just TS, as in TS1 but it didn't have a numeral back then, skipped out a bit during TS2 due to work commitments but, not been working in a while so spent way to much time on both TS3 and now to some degree TS4, not to mention way way to much time here on the forums, I mostly go unnoticed although a few in the community hate me and a couple like me.

    I try to keep up to date with what's going on but, I'm mostly just here to read about the game now, where its going and to speak to a couple of friends I enjoy the company of who still enjoy mine.

    My background is mostly bad sales jobs but I did spend time originally in industrial trade, fabrication, fitting and finally draughting, the place I was working was about six months into converting to CAD when the company had to go into receivership so, was mostly in bad sales jobs after although I did spend a couple of years at college getting a couple of sheets of nice toilet paper with the words computing something or other printed on it.

    I've always had a bit of a passion for design despite not being talented at it, be it clothing, architecture, even the boring stuff I used to work on like ship outfitting and warehouse racking systems, everything had to be just so and, I guess something appeals to me in that, I think its why I have a love for sims stuff, even in its more basic iterations, I'm one of the lucky people that does get a good amount of pleasure from all areas of the game, family life, building, creating personalities while its also true I have my frustrations I'll leave complaints out of this post.

    I guess that pretty much covers the gist of it, idk.

    Hello @bobyo2001 :) Sims 2 and 3 are great sims games. You would have enjoyed many fun simming days since starting playing in 2007. It is great that a relative introduced you to the series, and that you have been enjoying simming.

    Hello @LaAbby :) It is great that you start simming in 2013 and are enjoying playing it. Although you may not play it as often now as you did, it is nice that the game is there for you to enjoy playing whenever you would like to. You can play whenever you feel like simming.

    Hi! I was introduced to The Sims by my kids (the ones who are now Young Adults) not long after the game came out, and I've been playing all the PC versions on and off, in binges, ever since. I used to mostly lurk on the Sims 3 forums, and I've been active on these ones since I started hearing about Sims 4 last summer. I have lots of posts here mainly because I find it personally satisfying to help people make their game work, and I like the puzzle-game of figuring out where a problem might be coming from. Also, there are lots of nice people here and it's fun to me to see all the different ways people play the same game (which are often way more creative than mine!). And I can daydream of what I might try in mine when I finally get a big block of time to play again, even though really I'll probably just play my usual boring way :)

    Hello @cheesetruck :) I am sorry to hear that you suffer from depression. Sending special thoughts to you. It is good that simming has helped you as you cope with your health issues. It is great that you have the sims 2 ultimate collection, all the sims 3 EPs, and sims 4 and outdoors retreat. You would enjoy playing the different versions of the games and all the great features of each of the games. I am excited about the upcoming careers too! It will be fun having and watching our sims in their new careers!
    Happy simming! :)

    My turn. Started playing Sims with the first in the series, and have played on and off for the last decade and a half, time permitting. Mainly I read here, and post now and then. I've been meaning to play TS4 for a while, but things always tend to crop up, so.

    Personally, I have a history in medical/technical science. In my free time, I love to read and have a penchant for Byronic heroes. Love love love reading gothic literature, as well as other styles from that point in time. They seem to have depth that modern books lack. I also keep fish, as well as playing guitar and watercolour painting.
  • I'm Miranda, and I've been playing sims, since The Origoinal Sims. I've always wanted to create a legacy family, but I never get that far. I just got sims 4 as a little present for mainting a 3.5 GPA in college. I joined the fourm to get ideas for my sims and future sims, but most of all to make friends :)

    Hello @Badmagic :) It is great that you enjoy design in real life, and that you have been able to carry that over into when playing sims. There are many different areas of simming, from playing, to creating sims, to families and then building. It is great that you enjoy all the different areas of it.
    Continue to enjoy simming :)

    Hello everyone. :)

    I started playing The Sims in 2001, since then I have played 2, 3 and now 4.

    I find the forums and fellow simmers to be extremely helpful, I've learnt so much about a game I really enjoy.

    *waves* Hey all/Rose.
    About me? *twiddles thumbs*

    amblFEv.pngaAQQamI.pngBgfET73.pngj3Y8Qta.png

    I've been simming forever and it seems like It'll stay that way (unless God forbid I get a dreaded social life). The most fun I've ever had with an expansion pack was with Open for Business and my least useful expansion pack has been... livin' large (I was like 13 so. . .). I'm into youtubing atm, and I'm also addicted to Simpsons Tapped out (I finally get the farmville thing. Must. Keep. Tapping!)

    Anywhoos. I'm not very interesting (no extra limbs or super powers) but Rose is awesome and I'm always down for hello.

    Aloha!

    I’m N7 Muscles guy aka Crackseed aka “Let’s stay on the other side of the bus for now kids that man is way too happy…”

    I’ve been “simming” since before the Sims were even a thing. Sim Earth and Sim Ant were some of the earliest Maxis products I consumed and went hog wild over. While the Sims for me tends to be a more diversionary title, I play it quite often when I want to just unwind and feel like a benevolent (or malicious) puppet master making my pixel creations dance for their overlord.

    As a gamer, I tend to embrace a plethora of titles from quite a few genres. I would say RPGs are probably my crème de la crème right now but Shooters, RTS (Real Time Strategy) and Indie titles are all fair game.

    In the Sims itself, I tend to focus on one family and I’m not really a Legacy player, preferring instead to just kind of let my Sims lives run themselves here and there with guidance from me. Collections, job and skill mastery and engineering silly situations are my forte.

    Outside of my gaming love, I still actively collect LEGO to this day and work with a local club here in Hawaii to promote both creative thinking and simply enjoy the awesome that is LEGO MOC (My Own Creation) activities. Rollerblading, Avid movie goer and NERF pest to my friends and enemies.

    Lastly – while I understand any forum is a melting pot of ideas and even conflicting viewpoints, diplomacy is always my end goal in the hopes of having good discussion.

    Good natured flirting never hurts either though. Giggity.

    Pleasure to meet you @rosemow and reconnect with the others here who I do know ;)

    Hi all!
    I'm Arubiana, I've been a simmer since TS1. I recently started a YT Sims Let's Play channel
    So far, I have a series about Eliza Pancakes, and am developing a series based on Sterling from my WooHoo challenge video.

    I love pushing my sims buttons and watching their reactions.

    I used to work in advertising, and love creating off beat things.

    Hi! I have been playing the sims since the sims 1 release. I never came to the forums until right before sims 4 was released. I'm a single mom, in college for criminal justice. I also work. So my days are always super busy, but i still manage to find time to play. My favorite sims game is still sims 2

    I'm not here to make friends and influence people. I'm here because I love the sims. Who I am and what I do irl is irrelevant to this game. For me, personally, I don't come here to get to know anyone. I come to talk about the game.
    I'm kind of with you. This community is just too toxic.... but for me, there are a handful of nice fun Simmers out there that makes these forums bearable. o:) <3

    I'm so glad to hear that! Thanks so much for watching. Right now I'm on a brief hiatus to save more of the story for closer to Get to Work's release and to give me more time to get Sterling's series up and running. :).

    Sim Ant!
    I remember that! Loved that game. Although as a kid I think it may have influenced my fear of spiders. I was afraid one of those things would start shooting lasers like the one that massacred my poor ant.

    I still have Sim Ant somewhere along with Sim Island and Sim Tower.
