NO UPDATES Starting July
...to August 19!
Posted 7/5/2001 10:40 PM EDT
I am going to the Philippines for 5
weeks and Japan for 1 week on July 8 to August 19. It is
possible that there will be no updates in that time frame,
unless I have access to a computer. Sorry!
New Expansion Pack...Announced!
Posted 7/5/2001 9:37 PM EDT
Simday has come, and Maxis has announced
the development of The Sims Hot Date Expansion Pack, which
seems, so far, (in my opinion) to be the best one yet, adding
a new area of play, the Downtown! Here's a snippet:
Players can have their Sims ask each other out on a date or try
their luck with an in-game dating service. Arrange to meet another
Sim Downtown at exciting and romantic locations that the player can
create. Everything from a candlelit dinner, a drink at the bar or a
rendezvous in the park is possible as your Sim attempts to
orchestrate an evening to remember...
...Players can watch sparks fly or fizzle as their Sims meet and
date a host of new characters. Sims can spurn the advances of The
Jock, welcome the overtures of the Femme Fatale, find true lust with
Mr. Medallion, or strike out with the Blonde Bombshell. Over 100 new
objects, including the Picnic Basket, Cuddle Couch and the Love Tub,
allow players to set the mood for their Sims. Find your Sim a soul
mate…or have fun trying with The Sims Hot Date.
Maxis has also started a contest going along with this new
expansion called the
"Hot Summer Nights'
Contest." Go to TheSims.com
for the full scoop on the contest!

Maxis confirmed to The Sims Resource
that a new expansion pack centered around Sims dates (the love
type, not the food or time) will be announced next SimDay.
It will be called The Sims: Hot Date. Save up your money
again, folks. Source: The Sims

twist in the Sims world! According to Volume 146
Power, page 19, Maxis is planning to release The
Sims for the Game Boy Advance sometime in the
future. Project Sims actually hinted at this with
an article at VooDoo
Extreme in May, but now it looks official. The
announcement for Game Boy Advance is (The) Sims
from EA Games and Maxis. One of the most popular
PC titles of the past two years, (The) Sims is the
brainchild of Will Wright, the creator of SimCity.
Instead of running an entire city, though, your job in
(The) Sims is to run a household. Now that's a

The Mall of the Sims is still open, but
it's free site is not. You must pay to view the
stores. The news is still free, as well as Club MOTS,
but this is a sad day, as we have partially lost a valued
website, at least to those who can't pay the money, like me.
Scrambling for Ideas
They have left my head.

Ugh. It's been 52 days since my
last post. This site officially stinks. I can't
think of anything to make. Even though school is over, I
have a tennis clinic Monday-Thursday 3:00 to 4:30, I'm getting
my driver's license in a few months and I need 50 hours of
driving, I got a Game Boy Advance and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
(which is addictive), I'm going to the Philippines and Japan
in less than a month, school will start 8-9 days after I get
back, and I'm lazy. Well, I'll try to think of
It's a Miracle! An
And new downloads too? YES!
Posted 4/29/2001 1:45 AM EST
Yes! An update after 15 days of
nothing! Two new downloads, a Will Wright Pedestal and
Painting, have been added to Decorative!
Consider the fact that Maxis releases new objects every month
or so. I have two today! Anyways, the
pedestal was cloned from a Livin' Large object, so you might
need that, but it's so similar to ones in the original game,
that I want to ask that if anyone with The Sims or House Party
WITHOUT Livin' Large tries to use it in
the game, tell me, and tell me if it works without Livin'
Large. If it does, great! If it doesn't, then I'll
put in the warning like the stove.
Problems other places...
Glad I have a free host and that I'm small

Online has closed. Jerm, the webmaster, has put up
two rants, one about his decision here
and one about...well...the Sim world in general here.
This was one of my favorite sites, and I'm sorry to see it go.
Also, a lot of sites have so much traffic, they don't have
much money left to run much longer. 7 Deadly Sims has added
more ads, Mall of the Sims has turned MOTS Map into a pay
subscription service, among other sites. I home to get
something up here soon, I'm just stumped on what though...

Hopefully for good...

There's life at Simlane again, although it
seems unconfirmed, Coaster's has reopened there, and the
domain Simlane.com works once again. It might just be
for House Party, or it could be permanent, but it's good news.
I Have it!
The Sims House Party is in my possession.

YES! Now I just have to wait until Don
Hopkins releases Transmogrifier 1.5 and I'll be all set for
Drew Carey in SimCity, Sims Getting TV
My computer's trying to climb into my TV!
Posted 3/15/2001 7:59 PM EST (In Archive)
Uhh...ok...I haven't updated in a while, and I
know House Party has gone gold (in production). Anyway,
on the March 28 episode of The Drew Carey Show, the cast will
spend around 2 minutes in SimCity! Apparently Drew Carey
is a SimFan too (his idea). Also, Maxis is working with
Pet Fly Prods. and Columbia TriStar Television to create a
Sims cable show that works in conjunction with The Sims
Online. Catch the full article and more info on this
