Clubs Clubs Clubs!!

I have a slight obsession with creating clubs in my game. As it stands, I have 117 clubs :o

I am a total perfectionist and micro manager style player and I seem to be on a one woman quest to create what I see as the "perfect world" for my play style.

If interested you can check out my thread on it.

My question is this: Is there a limit to how many clubs we can have?

    Woah! I would be surprised if anyone has more clubs than you :D

    What a shame we are so limited with icons. How hard would it be for them to add, like, fifty?

    Wow... I tend to even forget about clubs.

    I know right? The lack of icons kills me! The lack of activities possible also means I have to get really creative with some of the clubs to have good backstories and rivalries.

    Like my Vegan Vamps and the Coven of Darkness both have to have the same hangout (Willow Creek Necropolis) to meet each other. Necessary so they spar and do any of the other fun things I have told them to do so that they deteste each other.

    Oh that reminds me, I need to change the Coven of Darkness to the "Academy of Blood" before Realm of Magic comes out. Can't wait to make covens!!

    Also, as it stands I'm now at 118 clubs :# !

    Wow that is amazing and you have some very nice ideas there! I don't have Eliza Pancakes anymore, but maybe my sims would hate someone else enough to create a club, and my stay-at-home parents want to have their own clubs now, some parenting clubs in general would be fun :)

    And yes, we really need more icons.

    We really need more club icons... they have so many icons in game and should just unlock ALL of them to be useable by clubs

    So I am not condoning bullying, but I was never really a fan of Eliza. I find her being harassed by other sims hilarious! There I said it.

    I had to make her be in her own club however for the sims who already disliked EP to interact with her.

    I wish we had more customization options for clubs. I do love that we can write little descriptions but I need more space to really get into it.

    I like clubs. I wish sims didn't get bored because of not having club gatherings all the time though.

    Couldn’t agree more. They need more club icons!

    Your clubs are amazing!

    I really wish they would add all activities as club options.

    At least this thread answers my question about how many clubs we can potentially have.

    So far I've only used clubs for skills and aspirations. And yes, we desperately need more club emblems.
  • Wallsisms4everWallsisms4ever Posts: 371 Member
    I absolutely love the club system. I wish they would update it to add more activities and icons.

    Congrats on the creativity to put up 117 clubs! Wow! Can you describe some of your favorites? I'm kinda curious and love new club ideas lol
  • ElaineenicoleeElaineenicolee Posts: 80 Member
    Wow I love this! I usually use clubs as a skill building interaction. This goes to show how underutilized my clubs are in my game.

    I have created a senior citizen community and plan to use club doors to get them to come to the senior citizen center I created (especially since I have designated multiple households for the seniors). Now I need to find some new uses for the clubs. Thanks for the great idea!

    I don't know if there's a limit, but wow, 118, that must be a record! :smiley:
    This is sooo inspiring! Which club would you say you use or like most?

    So here we go!!! I really like the newly named Academy of Blood who have beef with the Vegan Vamps and the sims just pretending to be vampires lol. Vlad really hates the latter in particular!

    Academy of Blood
    "The Academy of Blood believes that the natural order of things is vampires openly ruling simanity. They specialise in physical powers and are aggressive in most matters. The Forgotten Hollow branch is at war with the Vegan and fake vampires."

    A new one I created for StrangerVille for all the infected:
    W€ ŁØV€ ΜØŦĦ€Ř
    "W€ ŁIK€ ΜØŦĦ€Ř. Ħ€Ř Ň€ŞŦ IŞ ĆŁØUЀРIŇ β€ΔUŦ¥ Ŵ€ ĐØ ŇØŦ Đ€Ş€ŘV€ Ħ€Ř!! ŞĦ€ €ЖŦ€ŇЀРØUŘ ŁIF€. W€ ĐØŇ'Ŧ ŴΔŇŦ ŦØ KIŁŁ Ħ€Ř... ŞĦ€ MAK€Ş ØUŘ Ň€€Đ βΔŘŞ GŘ€€Ň. ŞĦ€ ŦΔUGĦŦ US GΔŘĐ€ŇIŇG!! JØIŇ UŞ ĆØŇŞUΜ€ ŦĦ€ FŘUIŦ ØF ŦĦ€ ΜØŦĦ€Ř ΔŇĐ KŇØŴ P€ΔĆ€ :)"

    Child Prodigies
    "Studied Latin at the age of three? Learn to play chess at four? Are you the "mental calculator" in your class? Can you tell jokes in classical Greek? Perhaps you have published a book of political satire poems by age ten? This is the place for you."

    A naughty little kids' club:
    Cowplant Gang
    ""I'm Sorry, Mommy. I'll Never Do It Again." Wanna Bet On That? The freedom of childhood is to get away with as many mistakes as you can with no consequences."

    Agnus Crumplebottom's widows club:
    Modern Widows
    "We’re women. We’re widows. We’re mothers, grandmothers, daughters, granddaughters, aunts, sisters, neighbours, friends and families. We’re a community. We’re a movement. We’re thrivers!"

    Ava Von Haunt's ghost club:
    Boo-lieve it or not
    "Ghosts are both celebrated and feared, with cultural holidays dedicated to us and many horror movies and stories based on our stories. Come join the mischief!"

    Jacques Villareal's erratic trait club:
    The Insaniacs
    "A support group for those who like to tell stories to themselves and plants. A place where they say what they want, do what they want and even wear what they want. Even if it doesn't make sense to anyone else."

    Nancy Landgraab's crime network:
    Criminial Connections
    "Nancy's gang love to hang out at the same bar as the Police Academy club, drink bar drinks, and be mean and mischievous to the Police Academy members. Oh and sometimes they come up with new cunning plans."

    Oliana Ngata's personal trainer club:
    Weight for it
    "We got 99 problems ...because that's how many muscles are sore! Ouch! These trainers are highly sought-after by athletes and celebrities."
    ♥ —————————————————————————————🌸—————————————————————————————— ♥
    I also have a soft spot for:
    Stay-At-Home Mums
    "We meet during the day, when at-home mothers need support the most. We are all in this together guys! Our hope is to create a feeling of sisterhood among all mothers and generate friendships that will last a lifetime."

    The A-teens
    "The A-teens dictate the style and behavior at the high school. What’s cool and what’s not. The dos and the dont's. What is right and what is wrong...according to them anyway. Anyone who who wants to be anyone must follow to a T."

    Behind the Bike Sheds
    "A group for teens who tend to hang out behind the bike sheds at school. A place where all the things happen that aren’t supposed to happen and that might be frowned on by teachers. They also hate the A teens, Teen Scouts and Teen Llamas."

    The Four Kings
    "Deal, flop, turn, river, showdown: There are few things more tense than the final moments of a high-stakes game of poker. The four kings poker club is an exclusive league of the some of the wealthiest and biggest gamblers in Simdom."

    I'll have a mertini
    "Feel like summoning a thunderstorm, an ocean threat or singing a siren's lullaby? Maybe you just want to hang out with the azure dolphins, this is the place for you."

    This is sooo inspiring! Which club would you say you use or like most?

    My all time favourite is Crème de la crème. It is made up of only the Landgraabs and the Goths who are considered (in my world anyway) to be the oldest legacies. Many other sims try to join but no other family has made it in...yet. Alice Spencer-Kim had to resort to creating her own elite club but most sims regard it as secondry and just a wannabe club.

    Crème de la crème
    "An exclusive dining-club noted for its grand banquets and like-minded (and by all accounts well-heeled) sims. This group lures its members with professional connections, fabulous dining, and, above all, utter exclusivity. Legacies need only apply."
    ♥ —————————————————————————————🌸—————————————————————————————— ♥

    I probably mentioned too many there but that just scrapes the surface of what I have put in game :D You see, I have a problem!

    OMG you're an incredible writer!! I had a good laugh with some of the club descriptions. I think my favorites are Child Prodigies, The Insaniacs and Weight for it. I love it!

    Wonderful!

    That was really inspiring :)
  • SimAlexandriaSimAlexandria Posts: 1,780 Member
    this is awesome! I play with clubs all the time but usually tend to have no more than 3 per file and they're usually all kids clubs haha. We'll have like a homework club, and outdoor club, and girly princess Club or something. I want to start getting into clubs for adults as well though. The club systems one of my favourite features and I use it a lot

    Get Together gets so much hate, but I absolutely love it. If you want more club icons, you can use Zerbu’s more icons mod, however it won’t add icons for the club furniture and CAS.
    ~I just like lifestates. Is that too much to ask for?~

    I got some cc pack with "hundreds" of new club icons. Probably based on thumbs already in the game. I think I found it on MTS, but it should be easy enough to trace with a search or two.

    I found the Zerbu link on MTS thanks. They have recently updated the mod and it now has over a 1000 icons! Swoon! I take that as a challenge!!

    I love Get Together and I didn't know people hated the pack. I use it constantly.

    I don't think I would play as much if it weren't for clubs, it's one of my favourite tools in the franchise to be honest, and I love adding new clubs with each new pack.

    I wish they added more club activities and club icons as well though (not just icons, but door swatches, objects & club outfits)--and just expanded on it in general.

    The best part about clubs is exactly what you're doing; filling up the worlds and adding another layer to the neighborhoods.

    Almost every lot in my save file has at least one club that is attached to it, that gathers there regularly, and it makes each one feel distinct.
