Hello there everyone! My name is Nicki and I am newish here. I signed up a long time ago but I stopped playing the Sims for the last couple years to battle Breast Cancer. Sadly I had no energy and was really sick from Chemo to be able to enjoy downloading cc and playing the Sims. I really miss Sims 2 as in my opinion had the best custom content. But I recently started playing the Sims 4. I have mixed feelings about Sims 4. No pets, seasons. I do like some of the features in Sims 4 however. I hope they come out with more expansions or stuff packs. Now I am back and in remission or in the Cancer world N.E.D. no evidence of disease as they call it and am ready to enjoy life and playing Sims again............ behappy

Thank you so much Crissi! I am doing better thank you. I've missed so much since I've stopped playing but I'm so happy to be back on this great forum with wonderful creators. Glad to be a part of it. Playing Sims takes my stress level down. It's great therapy.   thau

Nicki..I am glad you are back to playing the Sims..I am a major Sims2 Fanatic and whenever I see someone trying to go to the other side..meaning Sims3/4 I tend to say DON'T GO..hehe..
Sorry to hear you are sick and hope that all goes well with the Chemo..



Thank you so much Crissi, it's beautiful

Thanks Samantha! I am doing well actually and had my port out. My treatments were done the past 2 years and I am good to go... Oh my gosh I really love Sims 2 but as a present to myself for beating Cancer I bought a new gaming computer and I haven't transferred my Sims 2 cc over yet. I have been giving the Sims 4 a chance but I am on the fence about it. I hear in November Pets is going to be released so hopefully Sims 4 will eventually release a Seasons expansion.

Hahaha..... yeah I was thinking that same thing. Not sure on Sims 3 though. I don't like the way the Sims look. I may just go between 2 and 4.

I tried several times to play Sims3 and I just couldn't even put furniture down in the homes..and yes the Sims look cartoonish...and with Sims4 got it when it went on sale through Origin and tried to create a Sims for 1 hour wasn't impressed haven't played it since..

I will always be a Sims2 Fanatic lol..I'm just started learning how to recolor..and making walls, and murals..I am loving it..although that has taken all my time from playing the game..lol

I'm thinking I may want to go back to Sims 2. But I have been entertaining the idea of learning to recolor but one step at a time for me as I work and deal with side effects of my medications. Never a dull moment...... Which is why I come here or play the Sims to escape and unwind.

Recoloring is easy after you learn lol..for me it has really been a struggle..I just don't comprehend things real easy..

I hope you stay with Sims2..we are losing to many players/designers/creators lol

I noticed creators leaving Sims 2. So sad. I noticed it awhile ago actually but I knew Sims 3 and 4 would be the death of 2. I think I will have to install and transfer all my Sims 2 cc over to my new computer. Hopefully I can start the game as I had some issue before starting the game. I don't think Sims 2 will ever go away because so many people created for it for years and there is so much stuff out there for it. It's unfortunate some of the sites no longer exist and thankfully people host them on their sites. I had soooooo much great cc for Sims 2 including clothes especially from Sim Chic but I am unable to find their clothes anywhere especially their free clothes they had. miss those days.........

Hi Nicki, welcome to Bloom welcome2
I'm sorry to read about your struggles with cancer, but I'm so glad you are on the road to recovery. I agree, sims can be very therapeutic!
I moved from Sims 2 over to sims 4. I also got a new gaming PC, and installed sims 2 as well. I actually didn't like it at all (and I was a huge fan of sims 2) I ended up uninstalling sims 2. It was good, as now I feel I really like Sims 4. I guess once you have played sims 4, theres no going back, not for me anyway.
Enjoy our community




Thank you Crissi for my lovely Siggi!

Thank you Tilly! And thank you Anneke! It's really great to be back to playing the Sims. And yes very therapeutic. I'm hoping to learn how to recolor I have so many great ideas. I'm missing Sims 2 so bad but I'm really liking 4. And I'm grateful to be a part of this community.

A warm welcome Nickilyn, I do hope that you will find satisfaction with whichever game you decide to go with.
Having my "pixel dolls" (as you have referred to in one of your other posts) have carried me through a number of hard ships, and I do hope that you will have hours of joy!
Looking forward to getting to know you.
Enjoy the forum.

Awe thanks Anita! I glad to be a part of a great forum and everyone is so nice. Looking forward to getting to know everyone! And yes Pixel Dolls have gotten me through some rough times and I was so depressed when I was too sick or too tired to decorate or play, But I want to learn how to recolor eventually.

Hi Nicki! Welcome back to our little family! I'm so happy to hear you're in remission and doing so much better now! I too think that playing, decorating, building or whatever you like to do is very therapeutic when you're in pain or depressed, it helps to take your mind off of what's bothering you for a while.

And, I'm still fairly new to TS4 myself, just really got into it back in January. It's a learning curve for sure! I still hate the cartoonish looking outside, that'll never change but it's so much more stable and runs better than TS2 or TS3 did.

Plus recoloring for TS4 is super easy compared to TS2 in my opinion.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better and seeing your designs. So, please feel free to create a member's album so we can all drool over your lovely things!



Thank you so much Crissi for my beautiful signature! *hugs*

Thanks TJ! I appreciate that! BTW I am a fan of your creations and I hope one day to be able to recolor as good as you. There are so many awesome creators here. I will have to check out the members albums....... I'm actually so excited for Pets. I saw they will have a new World and it's going to be Coastal!!! Can't wait! runcircle
