Towards the end of 2012 we launched an experimental forum integrated into our site, and recently retired it. After finding decent forum software, we’re excited to announce that the BeyondSims Forums are live and ready for you to post on!
The new forums have greater functionality and a variety of boards for you to post in and share your content. We’ve even installed features allowing you to make your experience unique, such as the ability to design your profile.
We’re super excited to see what you think of them! Check them out, register and join in with other Simmers!

I am excited to announce that I have been invited out to EA UK later this month for an Island Paradise Community Day, where we will have the opportunity to have a hands on with Island Paradise and a 1 hour Skype interview with producer Graham Nardone and Lisa Smith from The Sims 3 Store.
On the day of the event we will have a demo and hands on with The Sims 3 Island Paradise expansion pack and we’ll be having a 1 hour Skype interview with Producer Graham Nardone and Lisa Smith from The Sims 3 Store.
This is an exciting opportunity as it will allow us to ask your questions! If you have a question for Graham or Lisa, be sure to leave us a comment on this post by the 27th May so we can have them ready for the big day.
The same applies if you want to know something about Island Paradise. Simply leave a comment and we will try to find out everything you want to know when we are playing the game.
We can’t wait for the day which is coming in just a few weeks, and it’ll be nice to see some familiar faces, and of course other simmers that I am yet to meet
For those of you interested, the April 2012 Compilation from The Sims 3 Store is now on the daily deal for 1800 Simpoints (regularly 3650.. 51% off). This collection includes the very chic India Inspirations Living Room, Clothing and Hairstyles, and Bedroom set, and the Fabulous Fiesta set which includes the Frost-Bite Pro Ice Cream Machine and Sizzle Baby Pro Deep Fryer! Though a little (ok, well a bunch) bugged out, the two Premiums are fun if you really want some lazy sims!
This is a cool collection of Build/Buy and CAS for sims looking to play out their favourite Bollywood movie so you may want to snap it up while it’s gone

*EDIT* EA Updated Statement
Today we are informing players of the difficult decision to retire some of our Facebook games: The Sims Social, SimCity Social and Pet Society.
After millions of people initially logged in to play these games, the number of players and amount of activity has fallen off. For people who have seen other recent shutdowns of social games, perhaps this is not surprising.
For players who have enjoyed our games, we will be making a special offer to introduce you to a PopCap game. You’re a valued fan and we want to make sure you get a smooth transition to PopCap. More details about that offer will appear in-game soon.
On behalf of the teams who developed these games, thank you for playing.
Thanks Platinum Simmers for the updated EA Statement
SeeMyu, otherwise known as Simul8rReviews, was an author last year when this website was known as SimPrograms. I am incredibly excited to announce to all of you that he will become a teen author later this month as he publishes his first novel, Sleep!
Scheduled to be released on April 20th 2013, the book will follow Jonah Skyi – who has been blind since the age of fourteen – as he discovers a strange connection to his past and makes an irreversible deal with a spirit.
Sleep – Blurb:
Jonah Skyi has been blind since the age of fourteen. While helping his friends complete a film project, he discovers a strange connection to his past. Once he makes a irreversible deal with a spirit, who claims to be a Guardian Angel, to reinstate his vision, an underhand ultimatum is forced upon him unknowingly. He soon finds himself thrown into a game of life, mystery, secrets, and death between rebellious Guardian Angels known as, “The Spectators,” and others that have found themselves in the same predicament. In the meantime, the connections from his past begin to piece themselves together.
Forced into a world of tangled lies, Jonah must decipher between reality and his dreams. But Jonah has something that is unique-something that would be considered an act of insurgence. Little does he know, this is the beginning of something that should have never been tampered with. Secrets are unraveling the past to unveil an ancient secret brotherhood like no other, and he might just hold the key for their eternity.
If you’re a fan of young adult and/or fantasy novels, then this book may grab your interest. So be sure to check it out here on Goodreads where you can learn more.
