PostSubject: Time to play ... what to do first?   Sun Feb 26, 2012 1:14 pm

Looks like I finally have time to play Sims 3 but need to decide what to do first. I am starting with a fresh new install of ALL my EPs/SPs and store content. Whew! That was a lot of work but did not take as long as I expected.
So now to the hard part... do I:
  • Create a brand new Sim or download one of my previous ones from my studio?
  • Start with the latest EP town ... Appaloosa Plains... or go with a hood I know I will have to alter to make Pet friendly?
  • Build a totally new house? Or go with an EA or download another of mine to use?
Decisions ... decisions... what would you do?

I would:
- create a new sim
- play in Appaloosa Plains
- in MW's new sears house - the Solace

But then you would have to cheat a bit with the money Laughing

Create a new SIM.
Play in whatever world excites your sense of wonder.
Plop yourself into an already existing starter home until you decide what to do.

Have fun! :D

EQ asks ~
•Create a brand new Sim or download one of my previous ones from my studio?

•Start with the latest EP town ... Appaloosa Plains... or go with a hood I know I will have to alter to make Pet friendly?

•Build a totally new house? Or go with an EA or download another of mine to use?
Decisions ... decisions... what would you do?

all the above!

Start a legacy family if you do not have one already. I love playing my family as I am so attached to them. I am on generation R, so generation 18 if I did the count right.

My big next decision will be whether I like the new hood we are getting well enough to move them from Appaloosa to the new one for a while.

All of your replies have been great and are very helpful.
I had played twinbrook before and decided to try to make it pet friendly.
all I really did was pick a sim that was already there to play as my main character.
Then I went in to edit town and shows some random households.
Using free realestate sheet I move them out ... added random pet items ... and put them back in their original home.
As I was just finishing putting a small stable on one of the lots the game froze. I think maybe one of my new antivirus programs starting up freezing the game and my computer.
Now I think I will wait until after I install Showtime. The last time I started a legacy type story was right before generations. Something about the Generations EP and patch messed up my saves.
I did back up my game and installed the new patch last night.
I will probably go into a test game just to see what the new features are but will not get too involved
Yet. Since I'm starting fresh on a brand new computer system I did not want to move my old saves.
Well .... here is to new beginnings all the way around.
Feel free to keep posting here. I find it interesting reading about how other people approach our game.

Time to decide again. I decided to move the entire Burton household to Fertile Valley. That is the family in my Sim thread with six kids. The eldest twin girls - Penelope and Petra - are now young adults. The next set of girls - Hailey and Honey - are teens soon to be YA. The boys - Rick E. teen and Jules Frank toddler complete the brood.
Team EQ has established residence in Fertile Valley and Cmdr Tobias Shepard has moved out with his Egyptian wife and their child.
That leaves Major Geoff Glory and his family as my active household.
Now for the fun part.... Because I want to play out the Burton family I will need to change households.
I have seperation anxiety.... ... or is that because I must Lord over my Simlings?

I read about that in the Fertile Valley Gazette. They are welcome to come back for a visit.

PostSubject: Supernatural EP   Sun Jul 29, 2012 10:46 pm

The Sims 3 Supernatural EP will soon be here. Are you making plans for this exciting addition to our favorite game? Or are you dreading the addition of Werewolves, Zombies, Fairies, Witches and more Vampires?
You can share opinions and tell us your ideas here. And don't forget to show off your creations in the following sections:
Showcase your Sims
Sims Stories / Legacies
Building WIP/Showcase
Game Play experiences
Create-A-World

I plan on following my routine I use with all new EPs / Towns.
Save a copy all my Sims 3 information on my external drive (or on the desktop will do)
Install Supernatural EP and any related patches.
Go in game and choose a random pre-made to get an idea of how it plays.
Then I will choose the Lucky(?) Sim that gets to live out their lifetime in Moonlight Falls.
Just might even stage a Zombie Apocalypse.
Just because I can ... Mwahahahaha

I'm thinking of a world fit for Sugar Fairies!

Maybe some evil fairies too. Wink

Of course we need Light Fae and Dark Fae to keep a good balance. (Lost Girl)
