    @king_of_simcity7 OMG! I know what you mean..That must make it very difficult lol
    @Simsophonique I've been around in these forums for a long time, so I'm very familiar with how friendly & helpful people are :) But it's always nice to meet and talk to NEW friendly people, that I haven't talked to before, such as you fine folks! :D

    @bee1977 Well I did only play for a short while. Took 10 minutes to save which was a bit annoying as it only took 7 minutes the last time but other than that it was business as usual and it gave me a chance to get some pictures of a beloved Sim :smile:

    Hello everyone :) I'm Eon, and I'm new to the forums but not to the Sims. I was just looking for a chit chat thread, glad to see there's one still with lots of activity. I'm kind of debating which store world I'm going to start saving for first; Hidden Springs or Sunlit Tides? And I'm also considering which expansion to get next: Into the Future, Seasons, Generations or University life? Do you guys have any recommendations? I've watched a few reviews on most of these things, but I'd appreciate any fellow Simmers' advice.
  • imdragonitimdragonit Posts: 1,019 Member
    @EstyssEon It all depends on your play-style soooo the answer is all of the above...lol
  • EstyssEonEstyssEon Posts: 12 New Member
    @imdragonit Yeah, basically in shortest terms possible I'd rather have content that adds new gameplay rather than mostly decor and clutter, if that makes sense. So with the store worlds I'm at an indecision, I guess I'm leaning more towards Sunlit Tides, particularly the Gold version. But as for expansions, it's a waaaaay harder decision on that regard, because they all add gameplay, and the ones I listed add the most gameplay that I'm looking forward to.

    Hi there everybody,I've spent a few days trying to get my hard drive cleared up and finally got that done using a file cleanup "program" aka external hard drive.
    @Chelsie92 -I've played a legacy in Gibsons for a while and only had the game crash once and it might've been that windows froze.
    @lizzielilyyyy -Hi there!I've got a signature link to my blog and there's rules for a town legacy challenge and a modified 100 baby challenge with links to download worlds because Gibsons is big enough for 100BC games.
    @Simsophonique -I hate ot when bad CC gets into the game.I also use the weather because it keeps the soap opera out of the game.I'm playing times where that soap opera doesen't fit.
    @BD5141 -I've moved files over to the external hard drive and there's more space on my computer.
    @bee1977 -Hi there!
    @blazerntq -Great pictures!
    @EstyssEon -Hi there!You listed packs I've already got for TS3 and I'd get all of them if the computer could handle them like mine can.I would only install and test one at a time to be sure it's working before testing another.
    Storybrook County,Maine-Winter-1551.
    Eli and Ami Jankowsky woke up to a freakishly warm first winter morning and got ready for the day as their eggs hatched into chicks.

    Ami started cooking group meals to use for making preserves with their new canning station.

    They both listened to tabcasts while doing chores to learn alchemy.

    They both sat down and started writing on their laptops until bedtime though they got new sections of wall up for the new bedroom.

    Hi @Chelsie92
    You will find the instructions for setting up your mods here: nraas.wikispaces.com/How+To+Install
    Scroll down to Bluenote00's checklist. It provides a step by step guide.

    I have Overwatch, MasterController, ErrorTrap, Cupcake (for the bakery from Sims 3 store), Relativity, StoryProgression, Traffic and Register.

    I'd recommend getting just one mod to start.
    Overwatch is the mod I started with. It helps keep your game 'healthy' and you don't need to interact with it (unless you want to). It provides you with reports and fixes issues.

    I strongly suggest that you don't start with StoryProgression. It's fantastic but you need to tweak the settings.
  • Chelsie92Chelsie92 Posts: 57 Member
    Thank you @wendyyi1 i will look into it, i have seen many people talk about and praise the story progression mod i willl look into that i think thankyou everyone xx
  • cocococo Posts: 2,726 Member

    @Chelsie92 I'll just add that with StoryProgression it works well just on its default settings, meaning that you can just put it in your game and let it do its thing. If you have a specific style like rotation play or certain rules you like, you will need more time to understand the settings. It makes the town more alive by pushing sims into relationships, having children and pursuing careers. It really is a must for experiencing the game the way it should be :)

    I also recommend ErrorTrap and Overwatch for minimising lag and cleaning up any glitches which could potentially corrupt your game.

    As for your next expansions, Generations and University I would suggest if you like playing families more. Seasons is amazing but it's one of the most graphic intense packs (that being said, I love it to bits). Both ITF and Uni both have a new world to explore. I can't really choose between them :lol:

    Good day everyone!

    hi @coco i have seasons and generations just saving to get uni life now. Thank you i will just let it play out i will probably leave the settings til im more confident with it. I love sims but i want the town to grow with my family and story progression seems the best option xx

    I was playing a save where I only played a few eps and store items,ect . I can't believe how much I missed when a certain ep wasn't enabled and I needed it for something .in that household the kids are teens and I'll send them to university as I've enabled all eps and sps but I still don't have all my store items and i cut back on some cc clothes to where my game runs a lot better it seems
    Happy Simming!♥

    @bee1977 Thanks , I know I am a newbie and we are numerous everyday to join and I am glad an old member is agree with me !
    @Simsophonique -I hate ot when bad CC gets into the game.I also use the weather because it keeps the soap opera out of the game.I'm playing times where that soap opera doesen't fit.
    @TadOlson
    Me too, I reinstalled my cc and everything went well, except I need my austin mini car I didn't redownload yet.It's an old car but I love it ! It gives a cool effect and I like to take pictures of it on streets ! Soap Opera ? I don't understand well what you mean.I know it's show like the young and the restless.

    @Chelsie92 I got overwatch : Good to delete cars, switch off tv to clean your game .
    Error trap : good to fix routine issues when a sim is stuck on a place, fix some errors , it avoid stupid crashes .
    Master Controller
    I got story progression but I don't know if it's useful , a lot of people says it's far better than the ea progression but I don't think it's true sometimes !
    I also got carreer and traveller.
    I don't know if I need something else because they are hard to understand sometimes.

    @EstyssEon Generations and Seasons for casual gameplay for sure .

    @blazerntq Kathyn is gorgeous

    Please does someone can explain me while a stakeout ,my simself pretends to see nothing whereas they are deals in front of her? I can't progress at all .I know stakeouts when you are gunshoes and up are longer than before , I don't think it's normal.

    @MemoriiValentine It is funny as once you have a new EP you very quickly forget what life was like before you installed it :smile:
