Calling all tea drinkers and crumpet lovers alike! Beyond Sims, Platinum Simmers and Rachybop are excited to announce that we’ll be organising a meet & greet for fans of The Sims and SimCity franchises in London this May.
With thousands of Simmers in the UK we thought that it’s time to create an event for Simmers by Simmers. We’ll be meeting in Hyde Park, London at 12pm on the 24th May 2014. Look out for all of us together near the Italian Gardens. After an initial meet & greet we’ll be heading to the Natural History Museum to spend the afternoon together. It’s completely free to enter the museum so no need to worry about entry fees!
It’s going to be a Sims-packed day where you’ll be able to make new friends, talk about The Sims and enjoy yourselves. For those who need to travel back, we’ll be walking to the London Paddington train station at 5pm so feel free to tag along. We will make sure you don’t get lost on the way back if it is your first time in London.
If you cannot make it that day, make sure to follow our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts for pictures and updates throughout the day!

Well, it looks like the Spooky Day Embargo is over. So now the first preview of this awesome day in Seasons has arrived via iSims! WOO!
Halloween … or “Gruseltag”
As you may already know, Halloween is known in the Sims “Gruseltag” (English Spooky Day). It is always held on the last Monday in autumn. The week before the Monday calendar is in Sims (on the bottom bar at “work”) painted red, so you will not forget! If the time has come then, begins the great fun! The children of the Sims can then choose a costume and wear it to ask for the houses in the area for something sweet or sour. The various items of clothing ranging from “Alien” to a “hot dog” and can by your first on your Sim and then “Change Outfit” clicks to admire.
It really is fun to ring in the houses to get candy. The acquired treats the Sim can then eat yourself or share with others. They appear as candy in your inventory. It can also happen that the household residents simply ignore you or scare! Then, if you have installed the extension “joie de vivre”, you can still make doorbell pranks or throw the house even with eggs! So you can go round from house to house with the hope of sweets, so long until it gets dark and then the day passes.
Something that can beautify your Gruseltag, of course, the new pumpkins! The Sims, they can only grow in the garden and then either cook meals with, or purely slash different patterns and make them out of the house. The choices are many “pumpkin faces”. So you can choose whether the passing children really scare (angry face) or they would like to warmly welcome you with a peaceful pumpkin.
A Business EP and a Time Traveling EP? Would be so sweet!
Thoughts? Remember now, these have come true before. Especially with Seasons and Aliens. So which one are you most excited for and would want to see become real? A Business EP? Spy Themed EP? Time Traveling EP? True Vacation EP?
