    @Frogprincess_q downloading now <3
    I really hope that it can give you a bit of cheer <3 Generally, I only make stuff for my own enjoyment, but I know a few people here were keen to have a chance to try it out. I'd like to have a go at making a smaller vacation world, next. I woke up at 2 am thinking about it (and haven't been back to sleep yet, lol)

    @DaisiesDay :lol: it wasn't really supposed to do that though, lol, but I have spent so many hours and hours and days and days tweaking the weather and then running it in game for a couple of sim weeks after each stage of tweaking, that one or two small transitions going awry will have to be okay

    I'm not sure patience is the right word @sparkfairy1 it's been a combination between obsession and trance state :lol:

    @MDancer9112 - I would recommend not starting with a huge map, like I did :lol: Just keep going back until things start to look familiar, really. The first time I tried pulling out CAW was years ago and I threw my hands up after just one session. Every now and then I went back and just got confused again. Now, I'm not sure why I was so intimidated all those years ago, but I have to remember it was a long journey.

    Finally!
    http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=8742204
    Feel free to throw in a base camp and take your sim families to Australia! I dedicate this world to all the lovely people here and I hope it can cheer a few people up with sunny skies. I know it's not totally finished with all the lots built, but the fishing is fine :tongue: and I need a break.

    Thanks dear! Can't wait to play it! <3

    hello normally i just read some post here and there but i could not resist to post it because i love when my game surprise me:
    i created a family of a famous young acrobat (currently lv 7 and 3 of celebrity) and his wife is a good young stylist (lv 6) both of then live in a good house my currently played world they have a "maid(butler) to help then take care of they little kid
    Screenshot-3.jpg?1440714187
    then today i take the guy to go to his show in the coffee shop which he was dated to do on that day, then i was watching the guy show.
    Screenshot-2.jpg?1440714307
    then when i decided to watch what was happen at house while his wife was with free time, then this surprised me
    Screenshot.jpg?1440714367
    the mother was autonomous playing with her children, when i saw that i was "🤔🤔🤔🤔" and peoples call that sims robots >.>, i really loved watch then play together, that is something which i true love sims 3 and glady which i bought it and can forget sims 4 with they random huges and lack fo good real interactions than just random huges and kisses.

    both father and mother love they childs i get a lot of wishes to interact with the kid and they even does that autonomous a lot specially the mother since her have protective, she already tried to teach him to speak 2 times but was interrupted by the father on both that will be slow walk, but is true fun see how then really behavious like a family with the father being a father and a lover with his wife.

    this is something which make me feel bad when i look to sims 4 and how it is just a way to greedy over more money.

    I really don't know how compatability works, with CAW worlds, but some of the trees, most importantly the eucalyptus aren't base game so they would at the very least just not be there.... I guess you could have a a look and see how it goes.

    @Scobre not long now to see if your wish will come true :tongue: i would like to hope but dont wanna get my hopes up.....do you have any hope?
    Nah I think I lost it awhile ago. Sadly my hope is towards the Sims 5 now, but I could be disappointed again.

    Sims 5 you say..........I feel an earthquake coming :wink:

    > I feel something else is coming,and I wish I knew what it is.

    You may very well still be able to get TS2 Ultimate. Sometimes you have to try a few times, but I got mine well and truly after the offer ended and it is convenient.

    You really think so ? But how ? I mean, where can I ask for it ?

    Ask EA support, that's how other people got it :)

    @MDancer9112

    I sent an email to EA asking for the Ultimate Collection. I sent along a pic with all my Sims 2 cd's lying on my bed. I told them how my laptop wouldn't let me download them and I really wanted to play. It worked. I got the code for it. Just be polite and cute.

    Late but congratulations page 900!

    What really gets me is all the YouTube comments about how "fake" the trailer is. I mean, obviously? Do they not understand the concept of a joke? XD

    Anyway, honestly at this point I am not even enthusiastic at the idea of a TS5. Not if EA is going to give the developers a low budget and very little time. I would dearly love to have my expectations to be proved wrong, but only time can tell.

    Also, congrats on 900 pages! And by congrats, I mean that it's pretty awesome that you folks have stuck around here that long. I hope you all get some answers soon.

    @Ellessarr, Yes they do a lot of things autonomously.

    While the father was teaching their toddler to talk

    2lwnaix.jpg

    The mother was chatting to a friend on the sidewalk outside her house, the first spring day.

    I was busy making sure the older kids got to shool - I have so many kids, sometimes they skip school if the have to wait too long to get inside

    When I went back to her I saw this. I didn't know they could do this autonomously - it made me giggle, the portrait doesn't look like her, but she seem quite happy with the result :D

    Hey, I'm looking for some family play advice in TS3 right now, and I figured you folks might have some ideas.

    Right now I'm playing Quailhogs' Vargfjell, and one of his pre-made families was a werewolf father and daughter. Immediately, the father fell in love with someone in town and got married, so now I have a household of three.

    What I tend to do with my adult sims is just focus on their LTWs--the father wants a perfect aquarium and the step-mother wants to be a top athlete, so I've just been having him fish all day and having her exercise until she gets tired.

    But I don't know what to do with the child, or even what to do with her once she hits her teen years. I don't have any particular goals, and she doesn't really wish for anything.

    What activities can a kid do in TS3? (I have all the EPs, but I've uninstalled IP, UL, and ITF for now.) Are there family bonding things she can do with her new mother, maybe? I'm just drawing a blank right now.
