  • I am pleasantly surprised to see such a surge in activity here! Since I moved, (almost a year ago!) I have been busy with other things and haven't even finished installing the game+content on my new system. But I continue to lurk this thread. I have such fond memories of the members of this particular thread and can't…
  • I remember in an earlier version, I think TS2, my (ex)husband found a CC teleport pad that you placed on bottom and top of stairs and Sims would instantly move from the top to the bottom or bottom to top, eliminating precious game time for large builds. He was very fond of building large, fancy lots with lots of stairs.
  • Jodi, I just created a new post there. Two sentences. (You know how I can go on!) We shall see if it sticks!
  • Jodi, I just responded to the vid and it posted no problem. I did not include any links, but rather recommended that people actually read the first page to find links to other useful pages/tools. Oh, and I also gave you and Regina a nod. :) I know many people built the spreadsheet, but the two of you are the ones keeping…
  • I did see on a channel I've been watching that TS5 is officially in development and will, also officially, be multi-player in some way. Really, no more than that as far as I know. No idea whether it will be open servers, or only multi-player by invitation. Meaning you need to know who you will be joining in with. Or…
  • Yes, this has been their stock answer for TS3 support for some time now.
  • @ajaxpost It is the rainy season here in northern Florida. We are getting thunder storms almost every day! I didn't know this would happen when I moved here. Living in a pre-fabricated home (they do NOT call them trailers) I can feel the thunder like a ride at Disney! My cat was very upset the first couple days, but seems…
  • @tallcoolone I an trying to locate my installation/backup discs. I had them a few weeks ago, so I don't know where they could have gone to. Besides helping you out, I need them in order to finish installing everything on to my new PC. I'll keep you posted.
  • I'm busy the next few days, but after that I'll see what I can pull together for you. I assume that if I try to load the lot and don't have Pets active it will replace any of the specialty items. We'll see what happens.
  • @ajaxpost Happy Birthday Adrian!!! Hope it is a good one. (I was going to post cake and ice cream icons, but I've forgotten how to access all the available emojis)
  • Does anyone know if there is an eleven year anniversary badge? June is my anniversary month, but I haven't received anything yet.
  • @rosemow Hello! I hope that you are well. I usually just hop on to the Daily Deals thread and don't even look at my other thread updates. How great to see a build challenge. It is too bad that I just saw it now. I am just getting back to playing after a hiatus. Maybe I will join the challenge to get me back into building!…
  • @ClarionOfJoy, your pic of the roller coaster ride always makes me smile. :smiley:
  • Yeah, the compatiblity goes way back to when they changed servers a couple (few?) years ago. The best solution is as @AdamMoloo10 said. Oh, and don't expect it to change. We're lucky the store is still up after all these years. Most players hope they will give warning before taking it down. Personally, I've backed up all…
  • Thanks @angeljess26. Went to bingo with some friends. Fun night, but I didn't win. :/
  • You know, Jodi, it didn't even occur to me how much larger it is than my former 20" monitor. Mainly because I'm still sitting about six feet away from it. The effect just isn't the same Plus, old man eyes can't read tiny text anymore, so the reduced UI is touch to deal with.
  • First, @KevinL5275 Happy (belated) Birthday Anyway, howdy all. I have still not finished installation on my new system. I use my overhead projector as my monitor, and it died. I have finally connected the PC to my backup TV. From 100" to 30" is a BIG adjustment! (First world problems, right?) I actually had to rearrange…
  • @Greylady624, I've thought of that scene often in the past year+!!
  • Got all my packs installed. Now I need to add worlds and store content. I'll be done soon!
  • Does anyone know of a source for the Super Patcher other than the EA support page? The link there is not working. Big surprise. Never mind. Found it on the Sims Wiki
  • @puzzlezaddict and @FairyGodMother, thank you for responding. I'm thinking that it is just as well that EA left windows alone! I won't be trying the 64-bit Mac version, since my Mac is old enough now to be completely unstable. I think it is time to wipe it and bring it to Best Buy for recycling. It is a Mac Mini, so it…
  • @Me1620, as you can see in my last post, I still have not acquired the skill to be brief when I post! Oh, and it turns out the foot isn't broken, just a really bad sprain or bone bruising. It is finally getting better. Which is good because I had completely flaked out and didn't realize that my father and sister would be…
  • I got a LOT of my content free. Besides the ads on the store site, I also had access to a huge Microsoft giveaway where I had gotten a free XBox with a bunch of extras including games, a driving controller, Kinect system, a second controller and a Zune! Do a google search for that one. It was supposed to be MS's answer to…
  • Here's a question, is anyone actually running the 64-bit version on a Mac? Have you noticed any performance improvements? @Me1620 Jodi, I seem to remember you were on a Mac at some point. Or at least had access to one.
  • Thanks. Yes, I've had them registered for years. But there are some major advantages to having a full disc install instead of a hybrid one. Over the years I found my game frequently locked out after an Origin client update. I am lucky enough to have all my content on disc (it took a little finagling, but I managed it.) I…
  • Haha. Leave it to you be the the outsider. It's been a while. Hope everything is going well. Meanwhile, I have arrived in sunny Florida. I went from temperatures in the 50s (Fahrenheit) up north to 80s and 90s already down south. Thank god for air conditioning! I am laid up at the moment with a broken foot. This would be a…
  • Hiiiii!!!! I have been SO busy. I am closing on my house in Florida on March 15. Only 3 weeks!!! But that means I have been swamped with inspections, repairs, bank statements..... And packing! I had no idea I owned so much stuff! And this is stuff I will actually use once I have the room to spread it out. So, I haven't had…
  • @rnramey Regina, how did I miss your birthday last week? I am so sorry! You work so hard to keep this thread alive. I just want you to know that, even though I have owned the store for some time (due to this thread,) I still appreciate that hard work. I hope you got to enjoy your birthday and have a wonderful year to come.
  • @Me1620 It was when I was re-producing the family summer home that I learned how to use constrain elevation. I won't deny that it took several different YouTube tutorials and lots of practice to finally get the results I was hoping for. Necessity really is the mother of invention.
  • @Me1620 Build my new house. What a great idea!!! And, yes, financing came through yesterday, so I will now begin my search in earnest. I am hoping to be in my new home (whichever it is) by spring! Obviously I will keep you posted. @goodFeel93 I agree with Jodi. I often changed my purchase schedule based either on downloads…
