I just bought a new used computer, and I finally bought the Sims.

Lord knows I'll lose my job now because I can barely part ways with the game. :-)

Anyone else here SIM fanatics? Erstwhile, are there any sites out there where I can get an nWo shirt for my Sims?

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm a HUGE Sim fanatic. It's even better with the Sim Creator. I just put my head on a Sim, then make a sim for Trent Reznor and Chris Jericho. Then I commit bigamy and marry both of them. Why choose one when you can have both? Then all my walls and floors are black with barely any lights...ahh...the good life...

Trent Reznor? Are you sure Fozzy and Nine Inch Nails could ever get along? Maybe that's the point.

I found me a skin where I'm wearing jeans and an nWo shirt. Ah, now that's the life.

What's this Creator you're talking aboot? How can I add my head to a sim?

Anyhow, talk to you soon...

It comes with The Sims Deluxe Edition. I think it has The Sims, The Sims Livin' Large, and the Sims Creator. It's quite simple to put your head on a sim.

And no, Fozzy and NIN can't live in the same household even in the game. I think they both have a -20 for their social thing for each other. But they're pretty much never awake at the same time, so it works out.

I was quite amazed that the SIMS could work on my oldschool Pentium II 333mmx....

Wonder if the Delux edition would work on mine...?

I'm looking a Scott Hall skin. I found a Hurricane skin, so I'm happy...

I'm pretty sure that all the expansions prior to Hot Date work on the same specs as the original, except that they might require more RAM and more HD space. Hot Date upped the system requirements, but I want to say that a P2 is still useable. (Although it might be at the low end of the spectrum.) I'm pretty sure the Sims Deluxe is all pre-Hot Date, so you should be good.

Amazingly, I'm really starting to get bored of The Sims. I mean...wow! I made myself the dream apartment! I have a job, and I'm married. Yet...what's the point?

Well, back to real life for me...

Yeah, it starts wear out. It was really hard to put it down when they were coming out with expansions every few months, though.

They're STILL coming out with expansions for it. Most recently Superstar came out where you could have your Sim become a Hollywood star. I think either by the end of the year, or early next year, the final expansion Makin' Magic is going to be out, where you can have your Sims cast spells and transmute/animate objects and create all sorts of zaniness.

Actually, the fun of the game is coming back to me. I'm gonna make my sim HOMELESS! I wonder how that'll work out. Just a bed on the ground and a cheap fridge...

Have you found out how to make them so miserable that they want to die yet? Bwahahahah

Try this one. Trap two of them in a room with an accessible refrigerator, but nothing else they can get to. Then set a pinball machine in the same room where they can't get to it. Watch them wail!

OR, get two of them married, then wall off one of them, and have the other make passes at every visitor to the house.

OR, get a visitor to dive in the pool, then delete the ladder. Hi-jinks abound!

My personal favorite is to get eight sims and start the most gruesome reality TV thing ever. Make eight rooms for each sim then remove the door for each room. Make sure you have a refrigerator, a stove, and a food processor in each room. If you don't have enough money, just use the old rosebud cheat (press shift, ctrl, and c at the same time. When the typing thing appears type rosebud.). Then have each sim keep cooking until their room goes on fire. Of course, you wouldn't enjoy that much unless you're a sadist like me.

Ha! MY reality show had all women with bad personalities in ONE room, no bathroom, one chair, one refrigerator, one B&W TV, 3 fireplaces and 4 outdoor grills (indoors of course). After beating the crap out of each other for a good period of time, one fionally set the house on fire, with one woman guttily fighting the blaze off enough to survive....

Wow, how existential.

Has anyone ever heard anything more about that rumoured Sims movie that was supposed to be in production a couple of years ago? I'd be interested only to see how it could possibly work.
