  • I should get EA involved in this. The question is how should I address this to EA (Maxis might be defunct) and how to get it to reach a broader audience (I only have 1,842 subscribers as of now). The Simmer community NEEDS to know!
  • The link in my original post was to my reaction of the incident. It was a big surprise at first, but I was able to shrug it off. But I'll try to answer everyone's questions. If I tried to get the age-restriction appealed and YouTube still says it's a no-go, I'm afraid I could risk a community guidelines strike and lose…
  • I love everything about The Sims, but my absolute favorite thing is the soundtrack!
  • My first death was where Chris Roomies died in a tragic backyard cookout accident, and her roommate, Melissa, cried her eyes out for days afterward. It was quite terrifying considering the "earrape" fire music. I was nine!
  • The fireworks kit TS1 and telescopes in TS2. Santa Claus came by once and gave my Sims a fireworks launcher as a present (inside the house) and I can't have all my male Sims coming back with alien pregnancies after being abducted by aliens.
  • That's happened to me too. I didn't realize that Bob and Betty Newbie didn't have any interests. This is also coming from a guy who's been playing Sims 1 for 15 years straight! I noticed it when I was recording Sims 1, as I do always now since I archive the game on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdBwn5gcA7Y
  • Ah yes. No one likes Sunny, not even the cats! One time, a Sim set off fireworks and a fire was started. As the Sim screamed, the Tragic Clown clapped at it. I still play Sims 1, and I make lots of videos on it so I can create an archive of all things the original Sims game.
  • SariaFan93: Old School Simmer since 2002 I do videos exclusively on The Sims 1 as I want to archive and preserve as much of the game as I can. https://www.youtube.com/user/SariaFan93/about
  • I still play Sims 1. I'm an old school Simmer and have been for the past 15 years. In fact, I do almost all of my YouTube videos on The Sims 1. My username is SariaFan93. https://www.youtube.com/user/SariaFan93/videos
  • My YouTube username is SariaFan93
  • I still can't post links yet, but my latest video is an original dark-humored parody to the popular 100 Baby Challenge. Look up "The Sims 100 Body Challenge" on YouTube to find my video.
  • That can be a challenge until a YouTuber makes it to the big time. Personally, I'm not into YouTube to become a celebrity, but just to do it for fun. I have over 1,000 subscribers, and I do Sims 1 videos. Even though my equipment is not super-fancy, my setup gets the job done. I do my best not to make videos that are crud,…
  • Best console game- The Sims: Bustin' Out. Best Create-A-Sim mode: Sims 4 Best soundtrack: Sims 1 Best gameplay: Sims 1 & 2 Best graphics: Sims 4 Best expansion packs: Sims 1
  • YouTube has it's own set of merits and demerits. I personally do it for the fun of it, even with a paid partnership. I'm not the average gamer as I am more simplistic and old-school. But even with just posting almost all Sims 1 videos, I'm doing just fine. I'd like to do some more Sims and non-Sims games, but I'm just…
  • The Sims: Bustin' Out is my favorite Sims spin-off game, and it has been for the past 14 years. So much fun. If EA actually came out with a Bustin' Out DLC pack (with the items from that game too) for The Sims 4, I would play it a lot more.
  • I currently use Game DVR for my PC recording, and then I edit the footage with Arcsoft Showbiz and Handbrake. Saves me time and money while still allowing me to perform my best work. Game DVR is proprietary to Windows 10 with the Xbox App. I have previously used Fraps, Bandicam, and SmartPixel, each of them having their…
  • It has to do with the disc copyright protection, and when everything went to Windows 10, it pretty much made the game inoperable. However, I have a patch for it meant for either The Sims: Complete Collection or The Sims 1 with all 7 expansions installed. I have a video of how to do it, but you install the patch at your own…
  • I love The Sims 1, and I've been playing it since I was 8 years old. And if anyone here needs that nostalgia fix, I've got the ticket. On my YouTube account, I make a lot of Sims 1 videos as I want to archive as much as I can of the game. Username is SariaFan93.
  • I do some Let's Plays, with and without the commentary, on my channel. And the way I do it is to make the video, edit/process it, and then upload it as is. Then I edit the same video file, and add my rants and tangents into a microphone as I watch it. Then I add my audio file to the video, and then upload it a second time.…
  • My all time favorite part (spoiler alert) is when you unlock a robot and get it to attack the game's main antagonist, Malcolm Landgrabb. The robot shocks him, and Malcolm then proceeds to wet his pants. You also unlock §5000. I have completed the entire game 100% about 3-5 times in my life. I am currently in the process of…
  • Interesting. I have some opals (Mexican fire opal, Australian black opal, Ethiopian opal) in my collection. I also have a rough sapphire the size of a golf ball (over 600 carats) and a 6,150 carat (1.23kg/2.7lb) multicolored topaz slab from Brazil the size of my hand. That's just a few of the many crystals I own. I'm…
  • My name is Evan, and I've been a Simmer for 14 years. I started with Sims 1 at 8 years old, and my favorite Sims game is Bustin' Out. I have yet to play Sims 3 though. Besides Simming, I am also a super-fan of a particular Legend of Zelda character named Saria. In my spare time, I enjoy collecting gemstone crystals from…
  • For your Sims 1 needs, head over to my YouTube channel. I post Let's Plays, with and without commentary, as well as gameplay and many Sims 1 moments. As my channel grows over time, I will consider diving into Sims 2, 3 & 4. And for some reason, it won't let me post links. YouTube.com/user/SariaFan93
  • I play The Sims 1 all the time. The Sims 1 may not have all the bells and whistles of the newer games, but what it lacks in flexibility it makes up for that in simplicity. Plus, the Sims 1 has the oh-so epic soundtrack by none other than Jerry Martin. I'm actually listening to the game's music files as I'm writing this…
  • I'll confess, that is indeed my video. Gotta love those outlandish and sadistic mods to spice things up. Works a lot better than Palladin's Sims 2 gun mod that corrupted your game every time you used it.
  • Can't post links, but my YouTube username is SariaFan93.
  • The only problem I had with the YouTube's Content ID/Copyright system was during my attempts to Let's Plays of Super Mario 64 and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Even though I am a huge fan of a certain Nintendo character, the company's policies on Let's Plays, in-game music, and such made me discontinue those Let's…
  • There's only a few Simmers that I personally watch. My favorite out of all of them is SariaFan93. He does a lot of Sims 1 videos, and is even getting into Let's Plays with and without commentary. He's not a bigtime Simmer on YouTube though. He'll also do videos on other video games and stuff that he likes to do other than…
