    When you're dreaming one of your typically moderately weird dreams, nothing special, and you're walking around some random house, and you see a particularly small bedroom where one side of the double bed is unmade—yes, just the one side; the other is immaculate—and you glance around the room and think to yourself (still in dream logic), of course, that makes perfect sense. With the position of the furniture relative to the door, it's no wonder the bed hasn't been made. I bet everyone has massive routing issues trying to get over there.

    When you really know you have a problem is when you remember the entire layout of the house not as it would exist in real life, but in the format it would take if you built it in-game.

    When before planning your day, you think about what your plans for your sim family might be as soon as you wake up.

    When you watch the news and all you want to do is play Sims until there are better ones (meaning forever). Dang Brexit...

    When it's two o'clock in the morning, you don't need to wake up early and thinks of "playing another day".

    When the exterminator asks you, if you have ever seen roaches in your office, and you immediately think of this:

    Know you're a Sims addict when you...

    1. Announce it’s your Anniversary and mean the Sims not your significant other
    2. Know you should see a therapist, but don’t because there’s no expansion pack with one
    3. Use camera traps to see if your neighbour’s garden gnomes have moved
    4. Get arrested for planting camera traps in neighbours garden
    5. Have to explain to mother why you need bail
    6. Are the subject of a family intervention and pending court order
    7. Write about brush with law in a poorly concealed cry for help
    8. Think a TS3 addict thread is an EA backed 12 step program

    I knew The Sims was expensive, but I didn't think the cost would be so high :*

    When you tell your family you can't come over for dinner because you're going out with friends.

    Yeah, your sim with their sim friends hitting the bars.

    When you wonder what it would be like to actually drive Sims 3 roads...so to see what your sim's commute is like; you put your camera at driver vantage viewpoint...
    Screenshot-19.jpg
    ...and scare the absolute living carp out of yourself...

    Haruo: "River??? Honey..."
    River: "Yes, dear?"
    Haruo: "We're MOVING...this place is going to be dangerous in the wintertime."

    I remember Bridgeport has an insane grade on Windsor drive near the celebrity homes. Where I live, the roads are as flat as a pancake. It looks like fun though.

    Your sister sends you the floorplan to her new flat and you´re like... oooooh, I can use that!

    @Waterdragon when I asked my sister and brother-in-law their floorplans they were like :|
    the fact that I want to create it in the sims is supposed to be a compliment, for their house, and their taste!

    plus, my sister has this designers shelf designed like a branch, which she looks for months, and then I found the same as CC!! it was so awesome.

    @Anthonydyer, Yeah, I've seen a few roads like that. Plus the Coquihalla coming down towards...
    Twins-Snow-Shed.jpg
    was less scary than that road coming down from this in Sunset Valley:
    Screenshot-19.jpg
    Let's just say I was "riding the brake" coming down towards the snowshed when I drove my rookie run on the Coquihalla and I had my entire family on board in 2015. White knuckle all the way down.

    There's a sheer drop on the driver's side...so you don't want to lose control of the vehicle on the way down.

    When you finally cave and buy Sims 4 cause it's less than 5 bucks, then immediately feel guilty cause you're cheating on Sims 3. :blush:
