Your Sims throwback thread

This popped up on my Facebook earlier from 2018. I have been getting some good throw back screenshots recently!

Anyone got any old pictures they nearly forgot about?

    This was three years ago. Nice to see some familiar Sims but a few are missing as they did not 'exist' back then!

    Here’s a throwback from November 2018. It’s the first picture I ever shared here and is of a family I don’t have anymore. However, I still have the founder, Ava Sinclair.

    @king_of_simcity7 Congrats on getting mentioned for Friday Highlights!

    One of my very first sims that I ever played Sims 3 with.
    Screenshot-33.jpg
    He was the one that always got pestered by River McIrish coming over. He was a young adult...and well, probably a good 7 years her senior.

    Back then I also didn't play with "walls up". Guess my playing style has changed somewhat. :D:mrgreen:

    This is the oldest screenshot I have. I didn't take to many of them in the beginning and my game had already been going for a while, before I took this one.

    On this screenshot is Asgeir Karlsen, the first sim that I made, and his son, Jonathan Karlsen. This screenshot is taken after Asgeirs fighting and divorce with Lucie, so he was a single dad at this point.

    Asgeir in my game now is an elder, and Jonathan (and his little sister Sofie) are both adults with children of their own.

    Another picture taken a little later when Jonathan is a teenager and Sofie is a child.

    Jonathans first date with Kathrine Kråkesen (both teenagers here), that would later become his wife and the mother of Ingrid and Morten...

    Trivia: The last names "Kråkesen" and "Motorsen" are picked from random objects nearby... "Kråke" = crow, and I chose the name because, well, a bunch of crows was outside my window just then! "Motor" = "Engine" (you probably guessed that one...) and was picked as a name, because I had a car magazine lying on my desk...

    Here is a throwback to the founder of my current save. Her name was Emily Jones, and I am now playing the 5th and 6th generations of her family.

    I went back and found my oldest picture on Flickr. Oct 2014. I was building a country bar. I think that is my simself testing the bartender. :grin: I have some older pictures on an external hard drive and will have to check those out later.

    For me, "throwback" isn't that far back. I haven't been playing for long, and I didn't take any pics for ages. My original Bridgeport game has no old pics at all, and my current avatar pic is the current version of my first sim ever.

    I took the first pics for some post I made here on the board. Here's my founder from Sunset Valley on his first ever trip to Oasis Landing.

    I later went back to an older Sunset Valley save to find out how he originally looked, and that's a more or less unchanged sim from what the randomizer spat out, including the traits and his name. One of the traits was "hot-headed", if you can't tell from the pic :lol: .
    y9Ftxqq.jpg

    Nowadays, he looks a bit different again, but he's still around :smile: .

    Hmm, now I wonder whether I actually still have any old Bridgeport save.

    Throwback to November 2009, when Daniel's girlfriend met Daniel's other girlfriend. You can see he is clearly distraught by this turn of events.

    I don't have pics, unfortunately, because I can't get into one of my old flickr accounts. Oh well.

    Most of my screenshots from before October 2021 are sadly lost forever, so my throwback picture is from a test save on my new laptop I created in October 2021

    My earlier screenshots that I took in TS3 have been lost due to various hard drive malfunctions. Even so, I've never taken that many screenshots of my game to begin with. The oldest one I still have is this one of a ghost Simbot preparing to jump into a pile of leaves from 2014. Gives me chuckles.

    A shot from my first legacy (incomplete)
    Screenshot-11.jpg
    My Asian sims didn’t look like Asians, they looked like the Simpsons.

    Because I can’t play right now (thank you, you piece of poop computer) ALL my screenshots are now “throwback” images. 😖

    I was looking through old pictures I posted to Imgur and found this meme I made about 3 years ago while I was still in uni (I recently graduated, woo!). It's not a super-old screenshot, but it made me laugh and think of the good old days:

    On this day in 2019 I had Sims at University and Shelley was making friends to complete her LTW:

    Well, my Asian sims ended up looking like they had jaundice before I started using cc-skins. 🙄 (circa 2017 when I first started playing Sims)

    2014. Neville Cox and his daughter Gemma. They lived in a nice house not far from my own sim family. Tea drinking immigrants... Bah!
