I was thinking maybe we were getting "off topic" here... but we're talking about things getting "killed off" -- and the TAC forum certainly WAS... scared

And danyboy -- she wants you and your son to know that she has the "money cheat code" and has downloaded lots of 'extras' online (which I do know about, since I did the downloading...). Your son probably has all these goodies too; but if not, let us know! laugh

Hi guys,

Thank you Katsmom, my son already have the $$$ cheat, he's very good for building houses and decorate them, the Sims program and all the expansions give you a lot of objects clothes, we also got a couple of things online.

I accidentally killed off one of my first Sims characters in a horrible kitchen fire. His gravestone popped up right there on the kitchen floor and his "wife" danced around it. Weird. wave

But danyboy -- you could TRANSLATE for them! wink

Schwab35, my daughter is very familiar with the kitchen fires. TEENS! eek

But I think the humorous 'death' scenes, like the one you described, are responsible for encouraging the ummm... 'knocking off' of SIMS' characters.

They could e-mail each other and use an on line translator

I need to get the new game that shh TAC has on the homepage right now. (The Sentinal) It looks really good. Also looking forward to Atlantis Evolutioon as well. Also waiting with baited breath for Dark Fall II (Light Out) If it is anything like the first one it should be pretty good. Loved Syberia 1 & 2 as well. I only have Aura to play now, I am running out of games to play here! praise

Thanks for the info., blsbet44. Is it for everyone, or just for AOL members?

Gigi6113, I can't identify with your pain. I have a pile of unplayed games on the shelf, and more unplayed games on the way...

Have you played all the OLD ones?

By the way -- re: Dark Fall: The Journal -- am I the ONLY one who was disappointed NOT to get killed off in that game? I mean, it's a scary game; and everyone ELSE got killed off; and you THINK you're in grave danger all the way through it... so was anyone else surprised (at least) that you couldn't get killed off?

Vertex, sim city 3000 isn't the same as the Sims...

As well as using 'rosebud' you can also create sims with skill points... in the create family screen, make em as kids first, then before you leave the screen, edit them and make em into adults smile

Tigger --

My daughter (the SIMS addict) wants to know if you have the "magic mirror" yet? She says: It maximizes your skill and personality points; your interests; your relationships; your mood; gives you optional job promotions... If you have The SIMS 'VACATION' pack installed before you download this "magic mirror" you also get tokens for prizes in the game. laugh

If by some chance, you DON'T have it yet... I'll look for the URL address to find it. wink

Margo -- yes, I still have your pictures online, and will send you the URL links again. They're edited to 80 x 80 pixels, which was the size in the TAC forum. Here at GB, the maximum size is 60 x 60 pixels -- but your pictures should still display. If your avatar looks blurry or needs more editing, I'll do that and upload new versions.

See your e-mail, in just a little while... wink

happydance Thanks for the explanation on the SIMS and the SIM CITY 3000! I was wondering (a) What was wrong with me. (b) Why couldn't I get the game to perform as others described.

Now question: I read "expansion packs" and in the early days, this meant you had to buy a certain game to start, then buy additions when you master the basic one. Which one should be first, or will any of them do? Which ones will NOT play well on XP?

And Danyboy, your son would certainly improve his English if he had the incentive of a certain lovely young daughter of Katsmom....... whistle


OF COURSE THOSE CRAZIES ARE HAPPY! And that makes me crazy!

Vertex, my lovely young daughter won't even DISCUSS boys (yet)... lol

As far as The Sims go, my daughter has ALL of them; and we have an XP. No problems with XP, whatsoever. <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

She started with The Sims (original game). Each expansion pack was added to that game, which you must have if you ever need to re-install the whole thing. Some expansion packs must be installed before others, so if you later buy one that goes FIRST; well, then you have to do the "uninstall/reinstall dance"...

She tells me that Sim City 3000 (and we have 4000) is completely different. In that game you build cities (buildings), but you can't create the people. In the regular Sims games, you create characters and control every move they make. You also create homes for them, of course. And as recently discussed -- you can also kill your Sims people off (intentionally or not)...

My daughter is anxiously awaiting the release of the NEW Sims game -- Sims 2 due out by September 15th, they say. That will be an entirely NEW game, with (I'm sure) lots of NEW expansion packs to buy. laugh

<img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " /> Thank you and thank your daughter, Katsmom! Please don't think less of me if I confess, (we are all friends after all), that my introduction to base games with expansion packs was DUKE NUKEM. Now wait, before you delete me! This connection happened because he was a guest on COSMO'S COSMIC ADVENTURE, a story of a little alien boy who, with his parents, were on their way for a visit to Disney World on Earth for his birthday when their spaceship crashed on the Forbidden Planet and he was separated from his Mommie & Daddy. I got the DUKE NUKEM shareware, which was like an action cartoon, then one day bought DUKE NUKEM 3D. That literally nauseated me, so I begged whatever store that was to allow me to trade. It taught me a valuable lesson: ALWAYS check out the game with knowledgeable people before you get involved.

And Katsmom, I have known Danyboy for a couple of years now. If his son is as gentlemanly as he is, your daughter had better snap him up!

I never stayed in a haunted house, but I have went monster chasing once in my youth along a lonely back-road in North Georgia. Found out there was a active still making moonshine there...... never really wanted to go back as those kind of monsters used 12 gauge pump shotguns! scared
