Hey, everybody!

It's been a looooong time since I last checked the forums and I apologize if anyone has been trying to reach me. It's good to be back and playing the game again! Okay, random question time...

 

Are there any other Simmers out there? 

 

I've been on a big Sims 4 kick over the past year or so. I don't exactly "play" the game as intended, but rather use it for character and setting creation. I have a HUGE collection of cc, and I tried reeeeeally hard to learn how to make and edit my own, but.....I couldn't figure it out. Like, at all. And it's kind of embarrassing because all these other people seem to just keep turning stuff out and I'm just sitting here like wha...? XD I don't know.

 

Anyway, I've been using the game to illustrate some of my fan fics (HTTYD, Star Trek) and some of my original fiction as well. I've found tons of helpful things made by amazing people and built everything from the deck of the Enterprise to Hiccup's house in Berk. I just wish there was more HTTYD-related cc out there! I mean, how awesome would it be to dress up a sim in Hiccup's armor? Or how about some of the outfits and objects from SOD? There's a stunning lack of cool Viking helmets throughout the Sims CC community and it's such a shame. :)

 

I'm curious: what kind of Viking/dragon stuff do you think it would be fun to have available in the Sims?

Hello there :)

What is Sims exactly? It sounds super cool, but I've never heard of it.

The Sims is a very popular

The Sims is a very popular life-simulation game that started back in the early 2000's. Since then, there have been multiple updated versions, The Sims 2, The Sims 3, and now The Sims 4, which is what I play. Basically, you can create a character (or a Sim, as they are called), and have them be anything you want and live out a minie life in-game. Sort of like playing God, I guess. XD Your Sims have emotions, they have ambitions, they can age, they can have families and pets, they can get jobs, they can get hurt or sick or even die, etc. You can build their houses and everything any way you want.

One of the things that makes the Sims such a fun and popular game is the fact that people are free to modify or "mod" it, which means you change the way some parts of the game works. For example, people can add careers they want their Sim to have, they can add physical body modifiers (like height or weight sliders for when you're creating your Sim), there are behavioral mods, etc. There are also thousands of creators out there who make their own custom content that you can upload I to your game for free. Clothes, shoes, furniture, objects, accessories, you name it, somebody makes it. With all of that and the constant updates and expansions you can get, the possibilities are literally endless.

You can Google it and probably find much better info, but I hope that helps give you a basic idea! :)

Here's a link to one of my

Here's a link to one of my HTTYD fan fics I'm currently illustrating (you can also read the non-illustrated version on fanfiction.net if you'd like) using the Sims 4. Since I'm not great at drawing, but sometimes I really want to visualize my characters, I use the game to build "sets" where I can stage scenes from stories I write. I rarely play the game how it was actually intended, haha. XD

Yaaaa!

I LOVE the Sims 4!

 

Heres a random funny story

 

I has a sim named Matthew (random name) and I built him and his family a sweet house with a BBQ outside. He was a teen, so one day when I was taking care of a toddler sim, I got the prompt that my house was on fire.

I.

Freaked.

Out.

Turns out Matthew tried to BBQ (he was a lvl 1 cooking skill sim at the time) and he set fire to himself. Luckily, he put the BBQ and himself out quickly.

But still.

Moral of the story: always keep track of your Sims!

You can call me Drake, and I’ve played SoD from the times of old, when the only dragon newbies got was the hatchling they picked, no free broad-wing. I missed this game when I went on hiatus a while ago, so I'll try to not leave it behind again (well, at least not for a while anyways.)

 

I love to hang out at the Ice-Fishing-Patch in the school and take down ships. Feel free to chat if you find me!
