Sul Sul Simmers,

The Sims is 18 - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY- and we have plenty of stuff going on, find out what here!


We thought we would get in on the celebration here on the forums as well and what better way to celebrate than to remind ourselves what has been or what can be?

To do so, here are two little challenges for you all - take part and you may find yourself receiving a little prize :smiley:

Challenge 1:
In any The Sims game head to one of the biggest lots and build a humongous birthday cake - in The Sims style (Plumbobs EVERYWHERE)!


Challenge 2:
Take any pre-created character from The Sims franchise and remake them in your current game.
How about recreating Olive Specter in The Sims 4 or Catarina Lynx in The Sims 2?

For both challenges – please, no custom content, but any game and pack combo is welcome!

Upload your creation to the gallery with a tag - #TheSims18 or if you are not doing the challenges with The Sims 4, share them here on the forums with the same hashtag :smiley:

The details and ….wait did you say prize? What prize?
  • We will give out 1 The Sims 2 Ultimate code every day and a grand prize The Sims Threadless Store Bundle at the end of the week!
  • The challenges will run from 02/04/2018 – 02/09/2018 and only submissions in this timeframe are considered for the prize.

    Submitted mine. Chocolate Mint Cake. I think the overhead view looks better as you can see the 18 on top in lights and hedges. Don't know why it didn't show up in the Gallery images.

    I didn't use any CC, but for some reason the gallery still tagged it as CC used. :( But I did the Hatfields. They are one of my favorite families from the Sims! My Origin ID: GoldenBuffy22.


    I also did a Sims 3 version back in 201:

    I made an epic Rainbow Cake with colorful plumbobs. I just got the gnome on the white spot as a start spot with different levels with colors here's the list what I was remembering

    (Green Plumbob) World 18-1 - Green Grass Town (A grassland/town-themed level that resembles Pleasentview and Riverview)
    (World Adventures Plumbob) World 18-2 - Golden Desert (A large-desert level that takes inspirations of Al Simhara, Egypt)
    (Island Paradise Plumbob) World 18-3 Wavy Isle (A water surrounded beach-covered island level that inspired by Twikkii Island and Isla Paradiso)
    (Supernatural Plumbob) World 18-4 Magic Forest (A forest-themed level with witches and fairies and resembled Magic Town and Moonlight Falls)
    (Seasons Plumbob) World 18-5 Shiny Snowland (An ice-themed level that takes place during the night resembling Veronaville and Aurora Skies)
    (Pets Plumbob) World 18-6 Coyote Canyon (A mountainous level with several coyotes and inspired by Three Lakes and Lucky Palms)
    (Generations Plumbob) World 18-7 Floating Toy Skyworld (A sky level with several toys with no inspirations and resembles to other worlds)
    (Late Night Plumbob) World 18-8 Fiery City (A city level that becomes a lava-themed with falling meteors and resembles Bridgeport)

    These might look more than Mario games :D
