    Hey howdy hi fellow Simmers!
    My name's Kendra, but of course, that name was taken, so I replaced one letter with another. I've been playing The Sims since... gosh, whenever the first one came out. (2000, seriously?? Wow.) Suffice to say, I've been around for a hot minute, and despite owning The Sims 4 since it was released as well, I've waited a long time to join the forums.

    Most of the time when I was younger, it was playing The Sims for a few days and then forgetting it exists for six months, but now I've been playing a handful of families on rotation for well over a month, I think. I started many legacies. (Did you know The Sims 4 hates anyone that makes a Legacy, gosh, I've never had a game straight-up rebel against my plans as hard as TS4 does sometimes. One of my founders laughed in my face and turned out lesbian. xD Still love her tho.) I read the forums here a lot to find help and because there are interesting discussions, so I thought I might contribute sometimes. =)

    Hello @Keidra :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is nice that you have been simming since the original Sims 1, You would have enjoyed spending many fun and enjoyable hours over the time playing, creating and building in the game.
    I hope that you will enjoy reading and posting on the threads.
    When you are a full member and can edit posts, I would suggest that you edit out the comment you wrote about the legacy as it could hurt some simmers.
    Happy simming!

    Hello everyone! I thought I would come here for a bit and also welcome some new members too! I hope that's okay @rosemow if I join in!

    @Keidra
    Welcome to the forum!
    I hope you are enjoying the forums so far, I love The Sims 1, I have many of the discs and I plan to install them to my PC when I fully move. Playing The Sims 1 always shocks me because of how far we have come graphically.. I remember thinking that The Sims 2 graphics were very realistic.

    I am glad you are enjoying the legacy challenge! I have started the lite one yesterday (all rules apply but there is no point system!). There is actually a thread where you can share what happened in your game and post any stories that you want others to see!

    Hi everyone! I've been simming since my older sister introduced me to the original Sims in 2002. I can seriously remember the awe when I saw the trailer for The Sims 2 when it was first announced. That's when I was really hooked!
    I really loved TS2, and TS3 when it came out, but I didn't immediately grab TS4 when it was released. It wasn't until toddlers were added in a patch that I finally bought and downloaded the game (I am a very family/legacy oriented player).
    I've been touch and go with the game since, playing every day for a few weeks and then leaving it for a few months, and then repeating the cycle. I really love telling stories with my sims, so I've decided to get back into play and start sharing on the forums!

    Fun-fact: Even though I love playing legacies, I've never made it past generation six!
    Playing since 2002--The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, and The Sims 4!

    Hello @countesskate324 :) It is nice to meet you. Welcome to the forums!
    It is very special that it was your sister that introduced you to simming <3 It is great that you have been simming since the original Sims 1. Simming is fun! It is nice that you have times that you play the game continually, then have a break for a while then come back to it. Simmimg is great that you can enjoy playing whenever you would like to play and however often :)
    Congratulations on reaching generation six in your legacy! That is great!
    Happy simming! :)

    @rosemow Happy Simming to you too! I hope your save files are going well!

    @countesskate324
    Welcome to the forums!
    I absolutely adored The Sims 2 it is the game I started with. I was able to purchase it in a near electronics store for a cheap price, I was so excited as my mother usually wouldn't agree to get me such things out of nowhere. When I came home the laptop kept giving errors, error after error. Well my mother was never a tech savvy person but she went to have her bath and came back saying she has an idea. I honestly don't know how and what she did considering she was really not tech savvy, sometimes I think it was a Sim spirit inside of her haha from that moment I was really hooked on The Sims 2! So I completely understand how special Sims 2 can be.

    I also got the game quite late! I am not sure why, I never got Sims 3 (please don't hate me but I just didn't like it! I think the open world was overhelming and I thought the Sims looked creepy) and then Sims 4 came out and I just didn't really think about it. I am glad you got The Sims 4 now and are enjoying the game! There are threads on the forum in which you can post your stories this one is extremely popular and many of us post our updates here:
    https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/888255/what-happened-in-your-game-today#latest

    People love reading other's stories so don't be worried!
    I have also started a legacy challenge, my first one ever! Are you planning on getting to 10 generations?

    @PrincessAmy

    omg I have a very similar story when I first got TS3! I remember begging my mom to drive me to Target the day it got released so I could buy it lol. Turns out my computer at the time was just too old and couldn't run it. I was devastated until my mom finally let me use her computer to play lol

    I get the creepy thing though...after I played TS4 for a few months I went back to TS3 because I missed the open world. I lasted about a half hour before I just couldn't play anymore. The sims looked pixelated and creepy compared to the sims in TS4. So I get it lol. Even though I've occasionally dipped back into TS2, I just can't go back to TS3 lol
    Playing since 2002--The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, and The Sims 4!

    @countesskate324
    I hope you have a computer now that can run it well!
    Sims 3 was super demanding so I am not surprised haha but it is good your mom let you play it on her computer!

    I think Sims 2 looks really cartoony and friendly, so I think that is why it is easier to get into than Sims 3! I actually really also enjoy playing TS1.. It is so fun!

    *Deep breath in, long breath out*

    So hi. Giving this introduction thing a go. Hmm, what to say? Well, I've been playing the series since the very first one, loved Making Magic. That expansion turned a fun little simulation game into well... imo that was what caused the game to spawn into a franchise :smiley:

    I've played every iteration of The Sims except for the second installment, good old military service was keeping me far too busy for that at the time sadly (got straight into The Sims 3 when I left though). I've seen a lot of footage from it and read so many nostalgic posts from players, that I really feel like I missed out on what was probably the best all-round The Sims game thus far. Those sweet, sweet animations for just about everything, we still don't have some of that now :neutral:

    Anyhow, I digress, I've loved The Sims from the start and even though I sometimes get a little bored of actually playing it, causing me to restart over and over, I never get bored of creating. Whether it's lots or virtual people, I'm addicted to the creativity this game offers. Put a whole host of amazingly talented modders on top of what the game itself comes with and BAM, here I am, on the wrong side of forty, spending far too much time in a virtual world, creating silly things that very few outside of this community would understand or relate to. Gotta love The Sims <3

    Hello @the1akb :) It is nice to meet you.
    It is great that you have been playing since the original Sims 1. There are many simmers that have special memories of fun times spent playing Making Magic and have it as their favourite pack.
    Creating sims and building homes and venues are very enjoyable and fun parts of simming! They are very special ways of expressing our creativity through the game! It is also very lovely seeing the creativity of our fellow simmers!
    You can never spend too much time simming!
    Happy simming! :)

    Sul Sul!
    I'm fairly new to The Sims. I have always wanted to play it after seeing my friend play it, however, my parents didn't really understand the point of playing a simulation game where you watch sims do the exact things you do in real life. So when EA had that base game giveaway in May, I immediately installed Origin and downloaded The Sims 4. It's really fun to play God with your sims, and I am still amazed sometimes by the game. Let's not talk about the "Wohoo" option. Why is it called Wohoo anyway?? Since I don't have any packs yet, I am exploring mods and CC, and I never get bored. :D

    Hello there

    I played sim city back in the day as a kid and slowly moved around to Theme Park and the others. Was obsessed. Now I am all grown up and have recent (in the last couple of months) found myself playing again. Still have not settled on a type of game play etc. Just trying out some of the extensions and packs. Look forward to meeting you all :)

    Hello
    Your parents care about you and your health. They may be concerned that you and your boyfriend have been arguing for 5 years, which would be quite upsetting for you. If you haven’t met him in real life, they may be concerned that you don’t know what he is like in real life. It may help to talk over with them how they feel about your relationship and the concerns that they have.

    Hello simmers! I'm new here but I've been a Sims fan for some time. I used to play The Sims 2 a lot back when it was new, but then I kind of lost interest with Sims 3. I've been playing again ever since the start of the year.

    I think Sims 4 is definitely my favorite game in the series, although it certainly has its flaws, but I'm optimistic the game will only get even better with time.

    Thanks for the welcome! There's definitely some interesting stuff that happens in my games lol I am also hoping to get new gameplay ideas from other people here. I haven't been active on a forum in ages; to be honest, I kinda missed forum communities. There doesn't seem to be that many nowadays.

    Hi everybody!

    My name's Amber, I've been a simmer for a very long time (over a decade at this point) starting at the wee age of 11. My favourite thing to do is create sims in CAS, I love excercising my creativity.

    I started with the sims 1 and worked my way through the series, with sims 3 being the one I played the least only because at the time I had it had a really plum laptop which couldn't handle it properly so I gave up trying. I kind of regret that because it seems like the best of of the lost and was the one I experienced the least.

    My favvourite so far is the sims 4 though, mostly because of the character design which I adore :)
