    When you go into Excel (I use LibreOffice Calc now - Got tired of giving Microsoft my money) and make a spreadsheet for your Sims bank-account because the §99,999,999 limit just isn't cutting it and you have to keep it open in the background while you're playing your game so that you can do bank deposits on the fly.

    When you are constantly looking at objects and clothing in the real world and thinking "I have something so similar in the Sims 3 but I never tried that color or pattern combination!" So you recreate that outfit or item in your next sim game and it's just brilliant!
    OR--
    When you create an outfit or recolor an item in Sims 3 and just love it and after going shopping or watching TV, you see that exact same thing in the real world! You can almost hear the twilight zone music playing...

    You keep coming back to try again every 2-3 years or so because there is something in it that keeps calling you. A voice that TS4 has made louder every day that passes.

    When you see an entire couch set on the front page of Amazon and think "ooh, I should buy that just to see how it looks" then you remember that you have no money and it's your Sims who are rich.

    ...when you are in Malaysia and find a banded snake on the road and go "Oooh...a Malayan Krait..." Of course you know it's venomous, but you realize that you can hold it and stuff in the Sims. At least hopefully you know that you're not supposed to pick up one in real life.

    When you watch a movie and say "I need to make them in the sims!" And then put off your favorite character for last because you know you'll spend hours making sure he looks perfect! And then decide you'll make the actor to pair with your simself because you're that kind of person... :love::blush:
    Just me?

    (I made another save in hopes of distracting myself from making the Simself Save but it's so not gonna last long...)

    You know you're a Sims addict when after being a photographer in real life; you prefer to shoot sim portraiture vs. actually shooting portraiture for a real life person.

    At least my sims cooperate when posing.

    And they don't second-guess the photographer.

    Or a person from a band you like. I once made a Sim version of Nathan Followil from Kings Of Leon to pair with my Simself. :)

    Thanks I'm not the only one now! Except my simself probably won't look like me much... Not that I don't like how I look, I just don't want anyone to really know what I look like. Also I give it my pseudonym, Ruby, which has kinda become a nickname for me irl too. As for who I'm pairing with my simself, I do think the actor's quite good looking, I don't admit it much though because he's under 18 and I'm basically an adult now. But hey, celebrity crushes are okay I guess either way. Just Google search Pearce Joza if you want to see who I'm talking about... and probably spend hours making look perfect. His character in the movie is this though - https://disneyzombies.fandom.com/wiki/Wyatt_Lykensen. Bonus: Video if you wanna see his personality a little better:



    (Gonna make the character into a sim too.) 🐺

    Alright, enough off-topic me going nuts. Hmmm
    You're a sims addict when... you decide you're sims entire storyline before it's even played- (Pairing Rosalie up with a particular badboy sim from Twinbrook, switching his career from criminal to something to do with the graveyard, removing his kleptomaniac trait, and making him part vampire. I'm sure since Rosalie loves reading vampire books she'd looove marrying one.)

    @rubyskywalker Would that bad boy from Twinbrook happen to be Sinbad Rotter? :p

    When you look at the bottom right corner of your television screen to see if the needs are taken care off.

    When you want to hit the undo button after changing something in your house.
    (O yeah, right, when changing my mind or not liking it, I actually have to put it back manually. :#:p)

    When you see a mother with her little daughter walking in front of you, the mom´s hair a beautifully dyed wine-red, the daughter´s a plain brown, and you are thinking: what a shame that the kid didn´t get her mom´s hair.

    I also started to become really aware of genetics in real life ;)
    I saw the son (child) of a co-worker (woman) and they were so similar I could imagine how she is in CAS and was just changed the gender and age.

    When you stay up until 6am playing your current save game...

    When it's 12:40PM; you logged on at 6AM YESTERDAY...and your computer finally says. "Screw this..." and throws up an Error 12 and boots you out of the game. You just happily clear out the files and restart the game.

    And your computer is going:

    Oh I've done that. Quite a few times. The first time, was when the SIMS were brand new (version 1). I loaded the game after my son went to bed. I started playing around 9 p.m. Next thing I knew it was 3 a.m. OOPS!

    When you can't play for a long time but you still miss your simmies very much, so you're going through screenshots like it's a photo album of loved ones.

    When you get upset because the zoom and spin features of the game don't work on the pictures people post in threads. I mean the pics are great, but you just want to look around ... :)
