Andrei: OMFG!!! STAHP! I’ll have to retire the corporate jet and start taking my own!
So, bitches, PSA: This was a floating PSA somewhere else, but now it’s active again. If you have a Sims 3 Store Account (ofc you do!) and have registered your games (ofc you have!), just pull that bitch up and:
Login with your credentials.
Go to My Store Account, under your username at the top left.
You may or may not see a wonderful orange button that says: Redeem FREE Simpoints
Click that whore like you’ve never clicked anything before.
It will pull up a window asking you for your first born and a sacrificial ox (Terms of Agreement); you know you want to do this, so just click accept and Continue
BOOM! FREE SIMPOINTS! One less baby, but MEH!
You may or may not want to reblog this and let your fellow simmers know EA is having an existential crisis with its shit and you should exploit it. Is it a bug? Is it something they forgot to uncheck down at headquarters? Are they being nice?
the first mod you download is your mark of initiation
your first legacy challenge is your point of no return
as per our ancient (~15-year-old) traditions, only the path of total uninvolvement will be a path free of drama
for minimal drama, stick with old fart Sims 1 or Sims 2 players. We’ve had many years to carefully conceal our bullshit and make some truly bitchin’ mods
Sims 3 is a slightly more broken game, but the fans are more active and dynamic and get up to all kinds of weird shit
Sims 4 is… too… young? to have a cohesive fandom rn? but it’s relatively active and seems to be open and friendly enough
a large chunk of the community, esp. on tumblr, is a perpetual warzone that occasionally spills into simsecret
this is largely out of habit, seeing as simsecret WAS the perpetual warzone ca. 2008-2013 (their archive is like a chronicle of all the shit that’s gone down in the fandom since paysites vs. pirates began) and is still pretty much the most consistent place to go for a good ol’ gossip-fest
The Sims Resource has not been trustworthy since 2003
gifs add credence and gravitas to any comment or post
no matter what your background, you will certainly come across something that someone worked for hours to pose and shoot in-game, and it will give you nightmares
be prepared to accept criticism of your aesthetic
the less seriously you take the games, the more fun you’ll have
there are zillions of ways to contribute. like. so many. oh my god. You can write a story, create retextures and/or meshes, make fanart, make Sims, do challenges, make hacks, or even just tool around in your game and share a picture of something weird or pretty happening. You might not become a big-name Simmer overnight, but the community’s so big that you’re bound to find someone or something you like! :D
Salvaged from the murky black depths of my external hard drive, this is an old festival lot I built several years ago with the intention of uploading but never got around to it. I love the autumn version by far the best. :D
I’ve included my custom cover, which you can use to replace the Origin Sims 2 cover as the UC uses the lame base game art. Below are also links to all the Prima eGuides for each expansion pack. If you have any issues downloading any of them let me know and I’ll reupload them.
Hi! I created this kitchen as a gift to my site and hope that you will like it. Shelves and cutting tables are in the side tables and decor can be found in statues and plants) Furniture and fireplace are fully recolourable.
What if Katieeee’s blog were a place where sims could shop? If it were, I imagine, it would be The Style Warehouse. Here, sims can try on the latest fashions, and stylist sims can work on creating their newest designs. (CC free by sunsetsorbet)
note: to make the venue match the photos, your sim will need to add frames to the pictures above the coffee bar and in the bathrooms. :-)
