    Hey everyone! I started playing Sims with Sims 2 when I was a child, then moved to Sims 3 as a teenager and started with Sims 4 a few weeks ago. I really like the new graphics and that I am still able to use the Sims 3 camera. The creativity of this community is absolutely amazing. Love how everyone can inspire and be inspired. I studied game design and am specialized in 3D environment and VFX. Other stuff I like is metal/ rock festivals, fashion, interior design, and urban gardening. In the Sims I am mainly a builder, but I also like to explore the worlds and characters. It´s nice to be part of such an amazing community.
    Hello @LysiannasSimLife :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is very nice that you started simming by playing Sims 2 when a child, then that led you on to playing Sims 3 aa a teen, and now you started playing Sims 4. It is lovely that simming was a part of your life as you were growing up <3
    Playing the Sims would have helped you in your studies.
    It is great seeing the creative creations of fellow simmers!
    I hope you will continue to enjoy reading and posting on the forum threads.
    Happy simming! :)

    Hello everyone! I’m Jen and I’m from Cambridge in the UK. I have been playing Sims since the original game back in the year 2000. I was 12 years old and I remember getting my dad to preorder the game even before it had its cover art. I just knew I’d love it. I bought myself Sims 2 for my 18th birthday and then switched to Sims 3 sometime after leaving university. I only switched to Sims 4 when the uk entered lockdown 8 weeks ago and now am addicted yet again. I’ve been on these forums for many a year, browsing content and whenever I’ve had a question I’ve always been able to find an answer. Thanks everyone for being so helpful and so creative with all your content. I also love the challenges people come up with, so creative, I can’t wait to try out some of them.

    Hello @hellotigger :) It is nice to meet you.
    It is very nice that you have been simming since the original Sim 1, when you were a child, and that it has been a part of your life as you were growing up <3 Buying Sims 2 as a birthday present is lovely and a special way of celebrating turning 18 <3 It is great that you are now enjoying playing Sims 4. It is a great game to play especially with the lockdowns in many countries.
    I hope you will continue to enjoy reading and posting on the forum threads, and that challenges that you decide to do go very well :)
    Happy simming! :)

    Hi I’m new! I joined because just now the weirdest thing just happened. I went into build mods to buy my toddler a tablet and sell her crib. When I chose live mode again I was looking at my dim world through the eyes of the mom!!!! Like I’m first person! My controller was useless as far as choosing options all I could do was watch her move around and interact, it was almost like a fish bowl cam view and from my POV my head was gone (probably cuz it’s impossible to look at yourself) then I realized I could use the trigger buttons to switch people but it was still all from first person POV! This was AMAZING to me bcuz I’ve never had this open or thought it was an option. Is this new!? Will SIMS go full fledge VR!

    Hi, I'm Rubytinker but everyone just calls me Ruby. I've been playing the Sims since the very first game came out. I love building and creating custom content. Many of my builds are on the Sims Gallery. I haven't figured out all the ways to participate in the Forums yet. I'm very glad to be here.

    Hello @rubytinker :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is very nice that you have been simming since the original Sims 1. You would have enjoyed spending many fun and happy hours over the time playing and creating in the game. It is great that you enjoy building, and that you share your builds on the Gallery. Simmers would be enjoying downloading your builds and using them in their own games, Building is a great and special way of expressing our creativity through the game.
    You will soon get used to how the forums work. I hope you will enjoy reading and posting on threads :)
    Happy simming! :)

    Hi everyone! I'm Olive and I've been a longtime sims player. Today, I stumbled across a shell challenge for the TS3 and as a result I decided to take the plunge and create an account! I enjoy youtube videos and blogs on TS3, so if you have any recommendation, please share! Mainly play the TS3 and TS2 and occasionally will dabble with the TS4. And for the TS1, bless its' heart, accidently stepped on the disc some years ago.

    It is not good that you accidentally stepped on the Sims 1 disc! You would have been upset when that happened :(

    Hey, I'm not exactly new here, I have actually technically been a member for over a year. I just had to stop being active because of life.

    I have since changed a lot. I now have a dog named Charlie, a baby brother named Bo and play guitar. I now live in the southern part of North America (not gonna say where for privacy reasons) with my parents.

    I love possums, frogs, and snails. My hobbies include music, drawing, and crocheting.

    Hello @Eckenstein :) It is great that you are back on the forums!
    It is very special that you now have a baby brother <3 It has been a lovely time for you and your family with the birth of Bo.
    It is great that you now have a dog. You would enjoy playing with him, and taking him for walks. It is very nice that you enjoy music, drawing and crocheting. There are many very nice items that can be made when crocheting. You will enjoy the new upcoming knitting stuff pack :)
    Happy simming! :)

    Hello just here to re Introduce myself!
    I joined this site back in 2014 and was active for years. I was then unable to play anymore and finally after 3 years I’ve got my game working again <3
    Quite a bit has changed in the last few years! I am now married and have a 5 month old son.
    As well as 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 lizards (Noah’s ark over here)
    I suffered a freak accident over a year ago that has permanently affected my eyesight but I’m thankful for the sight that I do have left. Sims was always very therapeutic for me so I’m glad to be able to get back into this game.

    Hello @Erin :) It is great that your game is working again and you are back on the forums!
    Congratulations on your marriage and on the birth of your precious son <3 That is very lovely!
    I am so sorry to hear of the accident and that it affected your eyesight :( I send hugs to you <3
    Simming is a great way of helping us to take a break from reall life and all that our day and life are holding.
    Happy simming! :)

    Hello @Petedoige :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is very nice that you have been simming for a long time. You would have been enjoying building a variety of styles and types of community venues over the time, and enjoyed seeing your sims living in them or visiting them :)
    It is great that you have started a simming YouTube channel! :) Simmers will enjoy watching your videos.
    I hope you will enjoy meeting and chatting with fellow simmers as you read and post on the forums threads.
    Happy simming! :)

    Hi, I'm Mei Rui and I just got back here after years of being gone... I forgot what was I doing here before except for the storyboard I don't know the title of anymore. Anyways, since it has been years, I took it upon myself to work on what I lack regarding making storylines and I hope that if I finally get to share them soon, some of you will like them ^_^

    This is also a good opportunity for me to make more friends and catch up with what the other simmers are into. <3 <3

    Hi, I won't be using my real name because I don't like it so you can call me Emily (yeah I know my user starts with an y and then ie but with the right order it was already in use lol) I just recently bought The Sims 4 but i've always been a fan. So far I have Discover Uni, Seasons, and City Living and I am now waiting for Eco Living because I think it's going to be the best expension pack so far. I really have struggles with not buying expension packs because in one week I lost around 100 euros (I live in europe lol). Do you guys have any tips on how to convince myself NOT to buy 3 expension packs in one week? probably not but who knows lol

    Hello @simylie :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is great that you have started playing Sims 4 and own the three expansion packs! They are great packs that add many features, activities and worlds to the game! The Eco Living pack does sound very great! You didn’t lost 100 euros as you now have these very nice packs to enjoy playing!
    Happy simming! :)

    Hi there everyone! I've been lurking on here for a little while now, and haven't actually introduced myself. My name is Ashley, and I have been playing The Sims since '00/'01, so since I was 10/11. I've loved it from day one. I own all four versions, but TS3 is probably my favorite - I just love all the options and possibilities it offers!

    Other things I enjoy are: writing, music, films, literature, cats, horror/gore, and video games. I guess you could say, I am kind of a 'nerd'. I'm a total fangirl for The Undertaker, Ron Swanson, James Spader, and Alan Rickman.

    If there is anything else you would like to know, feel free to ask! :)
    It's not a party if you don't do something that scares ya.

    Simming is fun!
    I hope you will continue to enjoy reading and posting on the forum threads.
