Community Spotlight: Full House Mod

On today’s community spotlight we’re taking a look at a very handy game mod… the Full House Mod.

Created by TwistedMexi this mod allows you to add more than 8 Sims to a household. The ‘stable’ version of the mod allows up to 9 and the ‘experimental’ mod, not designed for lower-end machines, allows you to have up to 24 playable Sims in your household.

This mod is particularly handy if you want more control over your Sims or maybe if you wish to make machinima.

The Sims 4: Try for FREE on PC!

Want to try the latest and greatest generation of The Sims, completely free of charge? Well, you’re in luck as you can try The Sims 4 for free with Origin Game Time!

Less than two weeks to go before we hit a big milestone for The Sims™. It’s our 15th Anniversary on February 4. As part of the celebrations, we are excited to announce that The Sims 4 is now available on Origin™ Game Time. Yes, that’s right, you can now play The Sims 4, completely free*, thanks to our friends at Origin.

You can now download The Sims 4 to your Origin Game Library and get 48 hours of Simming. All Origin users have from midnight GMT, 23 January, 2015 through 6 p.m. GMT 2 February, 2015 to add The Sims 4 Game Time to their Origin Game Library.


SimCity (2013): Now Available on Mac App Store As An Offline Game

Aspyr Media, known for porting The Sims 2 among other Mac games, has published the SimCity Complete Edition on the Mac App Store for £29.99.

The interesting thing about this is that it is an offline only version of the game – yep, no multiplayer at all. I assume this is because the game doesn’t require Origin, which is required to play the game online.

Although I’d recommend grabbing SimCity for £24.99 with multiplayer on Origin, if you want this on the Mac App Store then you can now grab it.

The Compete Edition of SimCity comes with the base game and:

  • SimCity: Cities of Tomorrow expansion pack
  • Amusement Park
  • Airship Set
  • Heroes and Villains Set
  • French, British and German City sets.
