PostSubject: Hello, from Kansas   Thu Apr 04, 2013 7:53 pm

Hey there everyone.

My name is Linda Kay Ann and I live in Wichita KS.

Wichita is not my home town though. I am just a Kansas transplant from Missouri. I'm not a city girl either. I come from a small town in Missouri called Mexico. Even though it's a small town, it is the biggest one in the county and is the county seat. Population 11,000. Most the towns around it is under 500.

Moving here to Wichita was a big move for me. I did not really know how big this city was until my apartment manager told me she lived 20 miles from the complex. I asked her, "what town do you live in?" She told me, "Wichita". I remember making the comment, "Wichita? Man if you went 20 miles from where I come from, you would be 3 owns over".

It was not until I moved here that I learned about the Sims 3 game. It was right when Pets came out.

I love crafts and creating things. When I read about the game I knew I had to have it. With the money I received for my birthday, I bought every EP and every SP right off the bat. Installed them and went buying every store Item they had. Then I start playing.

I was hooked from day 1. Stayed up 2 days straight learning the game and building.

I love playing the game, but to tell you the truth building is my favorite part of the whole game.

I would love to share my creations here. Just need to learn how to upload to the site.

I am 52 years young and I am blind. Well almost blind. I am what they call legally blind. I have very low vision. I can't see the eye chart at the doctors office so they go by how far away I can count fingers, which is only from 12 inches away. So, I get lot of nose prints on my computer while playing the Sims 3 game. It may take me longer to build things because of how long it takes to find stuff in build mode, but I don't let that get in my way.

I'm also homebound in a wheelchair. The Sims 3 game keeps me busy and happy for days on end though.

Thanks for letting me join the forum

Welcome Linda.

I also have problems seeing the screen and finding things in the catalogue. I use a piece of software that I downloaded to my computer called Magnifier (available from Microsoft). It has helped me greatly. I play my game in windowed mode to use this tool, but for building I wouldn't be without it.

I love the Sims 2 and 3 and play them both. I look forward to seeing your creations.

oh, believe me I to have a screen magnifier. It is called Zoomtext. Mine will not work with the game though. Guess it don't like the graphics. Does the one you use work while playing the game? If so I sure would like to download it. I hate it when those pop up things come up and I have to wait until my home health aid gets here in the morning to ask her what it says or just go on playing without reading them. I know I miss a lot of what it tells you is going on in town by not reading them.

I have to use my magnifier when not playing or I couldn't do any thing on my computer. Zoomtext can magnify very big. LOL I have it so big you can only see like 3 or 4 words at a time on the screen. you just move your mouse to make it go across. I can also make it read what is on the screen to me if I want, LOL, but that drives my home health aid nuts when I do that because I have it set to read fast. but yet again if she is watching me read something she says it makes her dizzy watching me go back and forth across the screen so fast. guess it is something you just get use to as it don't bother me at all.

It is kind of funny when I am playing the game because I will ask her what time is it and she has to ask if I mean for real or on the game.

We have a great project going right no. My mom has just decided to move into a nursing home and she sent me 7 boxes of picture albums. Me and my aid are going through them and she is helping me make Sims of my family. I'm planning on making a world them using my family to populate the world.

I can't wait till I learn how to upload my projects here. I have already made the house I grew up in.

We made my mom and dad yesterday and today I am going to have her help me make us 6 kids. I'm so excited about getting started I have been up all night.

Sorry for going on and on. If I gab to much on here please let me know.

Linda do you play your game in full screen or in windowed mode? I play in windowed mode. On the options menu of the game you can change to windowed mode but still keep the feel of full screen. I use Magnifier all the time to read the pop ups in the corner. Works a charm.

Some links that might help you with sharing your creations.

Where do I post what?

Thanks so much for the links. I can't wait to get started uploading stuff for you all to see.

Yes I do play in full screen. I have a 24 inch monitor also. My zoomtext program can be made to go in just section of the screen. I never thought of trying it that way. I always had it on full screen. its kind of like using a regular magnifier, you just move you mouse across the screen. I am going to try it in one corner. not sure it will work though. will keep you updated on that one.
