I have never experienced it because I found out about it when it was already Down. I saw the videos on Youtube and I really liked how things were in that kind of game. So what do you guys think, do you want it back?

    Nope, but this game is being worked on that has online and co-op play: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=422537663

    Online would be a bad idea for deviant Simmers like me.

    I would try it out if it was free and separate from the main series.

    I never got to play TS Online myself.. It required a subscription if I remember correctly.

    TSO had pretty bad people problems. I'm not sure how you get around that without severely restricting what people can and cannot do and say. http://www.salon.com/2003/12/12/sims_online_newspaper/

    I understand that Second Life is a pretty good sandbox, though, if you're interested in that kind of thing. It takes awhile to figure it out, but a lot of people like it.

    I have no desire to play a sims game online. But I don't see an issue with them making one. I just wouldn't buy it or play it.
    Dissatisfied with Sims 4 and hoping for a better Sims 5

    No I prefer single player.

  • shellbemeshellbeme Posts: 2,031 Member
    Not at all. TSO was a game I did not enjoy and would prefer that the sims stay a single player game. You know, I don't mind how super star-or whatever it was called was in TS3, where you had other peoples sims visit as performers but I don't want every single sim to be played by another person.

    Online would be good, but not as a main Sims game :smile:

    Pros of online play:

    Get to play with friends.
    Meet new interesting people.
    Quite immersive collaborative & interactive wise. There will be alot of Group influence activites.
    It's fun to show off something that tends to leave good impressions which is usually stats or rare/high level aquired possesions.

    Cons:

    MMOs have no offline play.
    There is still chances of meeting unsavoury characters.
    You may still have to pay for added content & you may be restricted from specific places if you have not aquired access to the content. This is a downside as you may end up left out if all your friends prefer to play in a zone restricted to you.
    There will be times when the server is down for maintenance which is usually only for just an hour or so at least once a month.
    You will not be able to play if the server goes down

    Never ever, ever. I don not like that Green lite game either, I can't stand that hand.
  • metalfenix_Rafmetalfenix_Raf Posts: 516 Member
    Zero interest. I prefer to have my sims only for me.
    Want to see my sims? find me in the Gallery by my Origin ID: metalfenix_Raf

    I already have FreeSO. I pretty enjoy it! I really love the game. If anyone is not interested/doesn't like it, I respect your opinions

    I think FreeSO is pretty fun too, I kind of like the graphics even though it is different from all the other sims games.
  • StormsviewStormsview Posts: 2,601 Member
    as long as it T rated teen rated, I would try it. I never got to pay it. :/ My older sister got to play it and she loved it and talked about it all the time. And I think she had a boyfriend in the sims online :D . but she loves to make friends.
    here I think it's a lot of loners, so loners would not like to play a game with others. But I would like to play it. and I want to keep our sims games too. I want everything everything. :)<3
    Maybe its not always about trying to fix something broken.
    Sometimes its about starting over and creating something better.

    I never got to plays The Sims Online Original either. I never knew after I knew TS1 was here. I didn't know it would shutdown on 4.35AM August 1st... But like, paying like $9.95/€8.46 and a lot of unhappy users was a good reason to close EA-Land/The Sims Online. I hope FreeSO stays forever <:(

    PLUS: I don't even live in America

    I never got to play the online version. I played Sims Social on Facebook and liked it, although I found it far too pay oriented and time restrictive. The time limits were awful. I wanted an offline version of it. I think Freeplay is more like it now. Online worlds can be alot of fun. But you are limited, especially if there's pay content and pay areas. I would rather have a game I have full access to.
  • Lona1213Lona1213 Posts: 21 New Member
    Well Cardigan. Now you can play the online version. Go to this website: http://freeso.org. I got banned once and I'm getting unbanned. Now... instructions.

    1: Create a new account in FreeSO

    2: Download the FreeSO Launcher

    3: Optional: Go to patch.rar. Extract it. Download TSO downloaded here: http://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/misc/tso/, or get it by disc. Need to do: Download and install FreeSO and TSO directly from launcher.

    4: Have fun.

    You can create your account in the fourums aswell. Go to this website: http://forum.freeso.org
  • Lona1213Lona1213 Posts: 21 New Member
    And no. FreeSO is definitely free.
