Community Spotlight: Interview with MySimsAddiction


Today on the Community Spotlight we have a fun interview with YouTuber and community member MySimsAddiction! Take it away M!

Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do?

Hi! My name is M and I am a really weird geeky chick who loves unicorns and the Sims. I basically talk to myself while playing the Sims and make videos of it on YouTube in hopes I can make at least one person out there smile. The Sims has always been a great love of mine and finding this wonderful community has been the most fun I have had in my whole life!

When did you first start playing The Sims? Was it love at first sight?

I started playing the Sims a couple years after it came out when my dad told me about it! I remember him mentioning it to me, and I was like “Whaaaaattttt Dad?”, just kinda blowing him off not knowing what he was talking about. A little bit later he actually bought Sims 1 for me , and I fell in love right then and there. I have not stopped playing ever since! 

What do you think of The Sims 4 so far?

I think the Sims 4 is a fantastic base game. Outdoor Retreat came out and added some really cool stuff to the game as well. I guess I am just thinking big picture and imaging what it is gonna be like down the road! I think Sims 4 has so much potential and I love that it just runs so smoothly. I love it so far.

Community Spotlight: Sims History in Timelines


Another day, another community spotlight! Today we’re showcasing Platinum Simmers’ “The Sims History in Timelines”.

The title is pretty self explanatory: timelines of main Sims games all the way from The Sims 1 to The Sims 4! With The Sims approaching 15 years old in just a few days, they’ve updated it too. It’s pretty neat :)
