Ola! ('Hello' in portuguese)
Well... why not introduce myself?
I'm smac1975, a portuguese Sim gamer. I started playing The Sims like 10 years ago and then quit.
In the middle of 2010 i started to play again and i made contact with The Sims 2... i was amazed how things had changed :D I played it for a couple of months without realizing that The Sims 3 was booming. I started to play The Sims 3 in last September after buying a decent desktop computer.
Why am i here? It's simple. The first weeks i played Sims 3 i was using 'vanilla' game and features... to be honest... the base game sims were ugly as deformed puddings but i was concentrating only on the game features instead of the characters. One day i started browsing for custom content and I found Ladyfrontbum's webpage... wow! My view of the game changed a lot! And then I started to visit other creators pages, etc.
I admire and respect every custom creator and creation that I find, because the time they spend creating, using their imagination... is invaluable... as a common simgamer i want to thank you all. In my opinion, people play this game for a long time because of the CC created. Thank you once more.
It's amazing how many talented people are there! EAxis OWES YOU, CUSTOM CREATORS, BIG TIME!!!
In real life, I'm 35, male, geologist. Puppetteering your simmies is one hobbie I have
