I looked through everything and didn't find a place where you can talk about how you play your game..

I'm a bit bored on how I have been playing..so need some ideas..bored

I tend to play every household the same way..and I tend to fully control them..I have tried to play and just let them do what they want but after watching them for about 5-10 min..I just want to chock them.. thlol

Binge eat, suck face, through up their arms because someone something is in their way, and not really do a thing..they have a bathroom in each bedroom and yet they want to pee on themselves right in front of the door when nobody is in there..pass out instead of going to bed and all that..

So was wondering how you play your game??

What mods, tricks, and all that do you use??

It can be Sims2,3,4 would be interesting for all the games


Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

Hello Sam!  :girlie5:

You probably know this hack : the InSimenator for sims 2 :

http://www.insimenator.org/index.php/topic,100226.0.html



I just cannot do without it. It's my fav. with motherlode.   flirty

I hardly play more, but to make my pictures sims, it is always very useful.



By cons, I never tried The Sim Blender by Twojeffs.





Thank you Crissi for this gorgeous sign

Sam, I think if we are all to be honest, we do get bored with playing the game.bored

Usually when that happens to me I start building a new house, or creating for a house that still needs something and before I know it, I have a whole new storyline for my family.aha

For me, that works.... I need my families to have a story. Sometimes it starts with something they have done unexpectedly, or while I was gone.... playing in the public areas do tend to allow my sims to do what they want, and boy do they sometimes act weird! shame

When I check up on them,it's like....... okay let's see what you little guys had been up to. runcircle

I have legacy families, though I had to start over in sims 4 and am now just entering into the third. I like how the families evolved, sometimes on their own and sometimes through my intervention.

If that does not help, and I am still bored, I turn off my pc and find something else to do. sisters

I have never used the Insimenator..I do use the Sim Blender alot..over at MTS..there was a post that got me wondering about things..like how in the world do you get in debt..but there is a Mod for that it's a Loan Jar...and there was another thing but I can't seem to find it lol..the interest is much higher on that...

I noticed the last couple of years that I have been playing all my families the same way..and not sure how to get out of that..

I don't know how to write stories..I can get the first part after that I don't know how to write...

I used to use the Motherlode as well but stopped using that and it has worked for me..

I use a lot of mods from Simbology, Matty's and MTS..can't live without them lol..

Sometimes no I have a lot of problems trying something new..and drama in my Sims2 is hard for me to except..I need stability and no Drama somewhere and that is through my Sims..is that wrong.. and how do you get out of that..and just let your sims do what they want..

Thanks Dany and Anita.. :redrose:

When I last played, (waiting to get back the urge to play again), I had two families that I alternated between that it would not be too boring. I usually try to get them to achieve all their wishes to get full on all skills and get promoted at work. The only cheat I use is Motherlode but I have a few mods downloaded but they do not change the way to play.
Otherwise, it usually happen to a lot of strange things when I play.


Thank you Crissi for the beautiful signature

Thanks Marie..

I usually have 4 Families..and alternate between them so when they have kids they would already know them when they went to college..I have the families all planned out..before hand..

But I play all the families the same way..

Just wondering...

I have never done a legacy..and had started a challenge but that didn't get far..everyone computer went down about the same time..so it never got very far..

Maybe I should try one..

Can anyone give me some advice on what kind of legacy or challenge that would be good but simple..lol..

Ok I may sound pathetic but I recreate TV shows with my sims games. I had had the Gilmore Girls, Revenge characters, Scandal, Desperate Housewives.

I am soooo going to tell on myself.  I'm a soap opera fan.  Not as much since they took One Life to Live off the aire.  What were they thinking???  Todd Manning was sooo cool - loved the attitude.  Of course, you have to be rich, rich, rich to have that kind of attitude.  I started watching the show after Michael Easton joined the cast as John McBain.  He was the evil vampire (Caleb Morley) on Port Charles before that.  (Yes, I have Todd and Caleb in all my Sims 2 games.)

I use to watch General Hospital on my lunch hour at work.  I thought once I retired I'd watch it everyday without missing the few minutes after it started and the last few minutes before the show ended so I could get back to my desk.  Now that I'm retired I don't remember watching it even once.  So strange.

I'm a Stargate sg1 fan which has a lot of sims available on Ophidiae' site.  Sooo cool!

I can't forget the vampires: true blood and twilight (yes, I have buffy too)

Oh!  I love, love, love the series Once upon a Time.  I downloaded Regina's House which is over on  THE *PROUDLY BANISHED* OUTLAW site now.  Love, love, love that house.

Maybe this is why I love playing the game.  It is not standardize.  You can change it when you want.
