23 September

About The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection. I had it, but I have completely uninstalled it as I dislike it. It contains exactly the same game content as I can install from all my EP and SP disks, in spite of rumours that it would contain more, and also contains Securom, illegally! Its only advantage might be for those who didn't have their old disks or who need to run the game without using a disk. Which can also be done by using a no-CD fix. It appears to put the game files in slightly different places, and totally refused to play my savegame. You have to run it using Origin and, well, I don't trust Origin even as far as I trust Securom.

1/10 to EA

22 September

After many trials and tribulations, and after UNINSTALLING the Ultimate Collection which wouldn't allow me to load my savegames, uninstalling and then reinstalling all of Sims 2 from disks, I finally managed to get my Sims 2 working. Opened up Pleasant Woods, and into the wealthiest household, Cass Goth and Don Lothario. THIS is their nursery, and the elderly butler is clearly struggling to keep up with the baby, who he is holding, and the toddler!




Tita and the smallest part of her family wish The Sims Daily Forum a Very Happy Third Birthday.

"This stuff is 2,813 years old. So drink up and shut up."
"It's worth HOW MUCH? And you want us to DRINK it?"
"Mom, do I have to? I don't like nectar."
"Just hold the glass and look happy... well 50% I spose."
"Let's just get this over with. I want to make the Thirdlet some more toys. She finally went to sleep after screaming all night. I don't think she likes being a toddler."
"Neither did I."
"You can't even remember when you were a toddler. That was in Sims 1 days wasn't it?"
"Smile, or at least grit your teeth."


More of their adventures coming soon. The latest is Aurora 6.

From EA

Because you’re a passionate The Sims 2 player, we’re making The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection available free of charge to download to your Origin library. To add the game, just follow these steps:

Start by downloading and installing Origin. If you already have Origin you can skip to step 3.
Not an Origin member? Create a free Origin Account to get in the game.
Launch Origin and log into your Origin Account.
From the ‘Games’ tab in the Origin menu, select ‘Redeem Product Code’ and enter the code

If you’re already an Origin member, you can also redeem your code online. Just visit the Origin code redemption page and log in to your Origin Account. Then enter I-LOVE-THE-SIMS in the ‘Product Code’ field.

Log into Origin and download and play the game any time you want .

Thanks for being a passionate The Sims fan, and enjoy your copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.

This code will available for redemption until July 31st, 2014 at 10AM PDT.


20 July

Sensa parole.

Also, Morten and Genie in Shang Simla.

Later on 19 July

This has now appeared on EA's site:

"At this time, all Origin customers who had previously registered their copy of The Sims 2 should now have the newly remastered The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection in their Origin My Games library.

We know, however, that there are a lot of fans of The Sims who may not have had their copy of the game registered on Origin, and we want to reward The Sims fans for their incredible loyalty and commitment to the franchise.

As a result, we are developing an easy way for any eligible customer who owns a physical disc copy of The Sims 2 to upgrade easily to the new Ultimate Collection edition. We will update this article on or before Wednesday July 23 at 10am PT, with detailed instructions on what you need to do to get your own copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection."

19 July

Well, EA has done it again. Not only has their ORIGIN "manager" been shown to contain spyware, which watches what your browser is doing, and sells on the information to interested parties, but they are now offering a FREE replacement for the Sims 2 called Ultimate Collection, which is a digital version of the whole collection, but offering that ONLY to those who bought their games digitally through Origin. In other words, give the finger to the older, loyal and longsuffering customers who bought the Sims 2 disks and EPs at full price when they first came out; so much for loyalty. But then I suppose it was foolish to expect anything like loyalty to old customers from EA.

The small print here is that the ONLY simmers who will from now on receive ANY customer support for Sims 2 will be the ones who obtain this latest version through Origin. All customer support for ANY other versions is withdrawn as of 22 July 2014. This includes ALL Simmers who bought and PAID for the Sims 2 and its EPs and Stuff Packs, AND REGISTERED them on EA's website. Just because we REGISTERED the games doesn't guarantee any support. It used to, but not any more.


Thanks, EA. Nice to know you are still living up to your award for worst customer service.

And you still expect us to buy Sims 4? The only thing we can do is vote with our wallets.

23 August

I haven't done much Simming lately, though I DID finally install Island Paradise, and amazingly, it seems to work! Touch wood. Here's a fun thing, a Sims 2-style personality test. Seems pretty accurate to me. Link below the table to try it out for yourself.

Sita's Sim Personality

Score (0-10)

Personality Dimension


Neat (vs. Sloppy)
Neat, tidy Sims typically enjoy cleaning up the house or grooming themselves in front of a mirror. There's always something to be done around the house and they'll more often than not be found doing it; great for a house, but it can tire Sims out.

With their constant disregard of cleanliness and hygiene, sloppy Sims are content to simply "be." They tend to enjoy just about anything that doesn't require planning or cleaning up on their part.


Outgoing (vs. Shy)
Outgoing Sims are likely to jump headfirst into any situation. Charm and confidence are their best traits and when they're in a friendly mood they enjoy group activities most of all. Keep an eye on these characters, though; outgoing Sims can be too brash, and others aren't always so impressed.

Introspective and quiet, shy Sims often think about the world around them and write in their diaries rather than actually interact with anyone. It may be harder to break out of their shells, but if shy Sims take the time to get to know others they'll be delighted by the social world awaiting them.


Active (vs. Lazy)
Active Sims are almost always on the move but need a lot of food and sleep to keep up their hectic pace. They're apt to be happiest while breaking a sweat, an exhausting idea to most other Sims. An active Sim will usually get more enjoyment from watching sports on TV than reading a book.

Lazy Sims have been known to veg out on the couch for hours on end, so naturally, they don't need much sleep to sustain their constant lazying. They still enjoy socializing wiht other Sims and can be persuaded to get out of the house once in a while.


Playful (vs. Serious)
Playful Sims are more likely to find entertainment and fun in the world around them; they tend to be more curious than any other Sim. They may have a lighthearted nature, but they can wear themselves out with their antics, as well as get on their fellow Sim's nerves.

Serious, quiet, thoughtful Sims are more inclined to enjoy logic puzzles and good conversation, but they don't respond too well to chaos or silly behavior. Repairing broken items or working on an important project can keep serious Sims content.


Nice (vs. Grouchy)
Encouraging and generous, nice Sims tend to be easy to get along with and very positive. They'll listen to what other Sims have to say whether it's interesting or not and clean up after dirty roommates. If they don't watch out though, other Sims may take advantage of their good nature.

Grouchy Sims, despite their sour mood, can still be social creatures. They'll probably enjoy teasing a Sim as much as telling a joke. They don't seem to mind when other Sims overreact and they like playing a game as much as anyone else, but be warned: they tend to be sore losers.

The Edificium Set for Sims 1

This is a set of three Lots for Sims 1; two are Community and one Residential. Of course you may prefer to use them singly, but they are designed as a set: they were inspired by the wonderful novel by Umberto Eco, which I recently reread, The Name of the Rose. The house is uninhabited; there are some monks' robes available on this site as well, here. The Edificium is really a library but has been modernised a little, with refreshments and a few amusing things to do, and lovely gardens. The Church of St Isidore is in need of some modernisation but functions as a Community Church, happy to cater for weddings. The Dormitory offers comfortable accomodation for an Abbot and five monks. (Or, should you prefer, an Abbess and five nuns!) Click on the image for more.

19 January

After a major computer disaster, some health disasters, and a rotten Christmas, I started playing Sims 1 and 2 again. I made a couple of Sims 1 recolours, added a Maxis Matching page to the Sims 1 Themes pages, and wrote this Sims 2 story. A New Home.

25 August 2011

Well, it appears that EA got it wrong big-time with Generations. Now that I have Sims 3 Generations installed, my World Adventures voyages are over. Apparently there's a bug... yadda yadda haven't we heard it all before. So I'm on Sims 3 hiatus for now. I'll still be writing up stories, as I have mountains of pictures to process, but I will be PLAYING Sims 2 again, as I opened that up last night after hours of frustration with Sims 3 and it WORKS deliciously, straight away, complete with all my downloads and hacks! I intend to make some clothes and some houses, and most likely some Sims, which will appear here quite soon. Sims 2 is not my FIRST love, as all Sims 1 Simmers will understand, but in many ways still the best.

13 August 2011

I've added a few more of my stories from Twinbrook: Rufio, Meggie, the Social Trailer and the Twinbrook Detention Centre.

6 August 2011

Another chapter for the stories of the Brokes and of Hunter Cottoneye.

4 August 2011

At last, an update to the story of the Renzella family in Bridgeport. Starts with Giovanni and Morrigan

29 July 2011

Another chapter of the Kewian family's story: Kewians in Simsville. Also Young Pescado in Twinbrook, and the first chapter of Hunter Cottoneye's story.

Generations is patched and working well, I was uneasy about the Invisible Friends and Pranking but so far am enjoying the EP.

26 July 2011

A new house, for Sims 3. very English, with plenty of room to expand. Mowbray House.

21 July 2011

OK I got Generations... so far playing without any CC at all, even Store, it looks good, runs well. Cross fingers!

I made a Tudor house, as someone requested one. Yes, as a purist I know the windows are too modern but that was what the Simmies wanted - more light! they said... You could always replace them with smaller ones.

16 July 2011


14 July 2011

After recovering from a nasty crash and the sinking of the Toronto Islands (this world just disappeared without trace from my game!) I have a few more stories from the Forum Hoods, including Fairlight's and Ella's tales.

9 July 2011

I've added another Royal: Camilla. Here are the firstfruits of that World.

8 July 2011

I have new Sims 3 Sims for your delectation. here are Dodi Fayed and Sarah Ferguson.

2 July 2011

Zazazu, another story of my Twinbrook trailer folk. Also more of Spock Block's domestic adventure.

1 July 2011

I've taken a big step. Adding a Donation button to this site is something I've avoided for many years. But of course we are in a recession, and I'm apparently unemployable these days. Though we host the site ourselves, it is not free and as I no longer have income of my own to back it... I am not offering donation gifts, but if you drop me a line, I do make requests (Houses, Community Lots and Custom and Self-Sims) and would love to thank you that way! (of course once you receive them, as with anything I make, they are yours to share, modify and do whatever you like with!)

I seem to be on a building jag, so look out for more goodies very soon.

29 June 2011

Soms Sims 3 buildings:

A very simple Tiny Townhouse and Double Townhouse, European style, for those Sims who are city dwellers but don't like apartments.

Also, seen here nestled under Bridgeport's bridge, the brand spanking new Herald Offices.

This is a community Lot replacement.

25 June 2011

Another new Sim for Sims 3, Alvin Dutch and his house (for Late Night).

23 June 2011

A new Sim for Sims 3, Rohina Butt, for your delectation.

18 June 2011

Spock Block's story continues.

14 June 2011

More on TSORestoration! TESTERS NEEDED to download and install a basic version of the new client. It's quite complicated to do but helps the effort. If it works, you can get as far as the Create-A-Sim screen. IF you are interested in TSO you should download the client now, while it is still possible - from this link as it's not possible to archive the files and without EA's original Sims Online installation TSOR will never work. And from at least some TSO disks it doesn't work, so download it anyway. And we all know that things have a way of disappearing from the EA site.

10 June 2011

Some more chapters for the Gardiner Legacy story.

02 June 2011

A new Sims 3 character actor for your worlds of famous Sims: Cate Blanchett.

26 May 2011

A new Sims 3 Challenge - the Sims 2 Townhouse challenge from Neighbourhood 99. Claire Ursine and her baby moved in...

And a new story, also from Sunset Valley. Thaddeus George I bought the old, fire-damaged Goth Mansion.

02 May 2011

Exciting news! The TSO Restoration Project is a project to rebuild The Sims Online as, eventually, open-source, free-to-play. It's a community project and they really need good programmers to offer a little of their time to help move it forward; currently they seem to be rebuilding the server code. If you know C++, get over there!

Alphaville Herald has an interesting article and from the ashes tso restoration plans to bring back the sims online

There is more in Agnes' story: Agnes went to Sunset Valley

20 April 2011

Today I have an update to the Gotti Brothers' story The Brothers. And the continuation of the story of Cor Crumplebottom, Agnes' son by Giovanni Gotti.

19 April 2011

A new Sims 2 house! The Steam house.

And Larry and Pippsi's Honeymoon in Egypt, the beginning of Jolrei's and Emma's stories.

5 April 2011

OK Sims 1 section is fixed I think. There are a few renumbered and pictured TSO Sims 1 skins here, will be more soon.

I'm working on a Sims 1 challenge for CTOccasions, you can find out more about it here.

31 March 2011

I've been working on numbering and making pictures of the Sims 1 skins from The Sims Online. And rebuilding this web which - developed major problems. Should be back soon. Meanwhile, have a look at these.

Some Sims videos released recently

26 March 2011

Site is undergoing some pretty major maintenance so some links might break - if you can't find anything please email me (sita@simechoes.org).

I started The Agnes Challenge

14 March 2011

Rhapsody in Chinese challenge now completed.

10 March 2011

I started a simple blog of my Simming activities.

Some pictures from my Sims 3 World building.

And a new Sims 3 Sim: Chiyoko Fujiwara who is attempting the Rhapsody in Blue challenge as Rhapsody in Chinese.

8 March 2011

Bluesage called my attention to my Sims 1 Themes pages, so I updated them. Sadly, many Sims 1 sites have departed, but there are still many many good ones - and much of the Sims 1 material has been saved and hosted in a variety of places, including Yahoo Groups. If you are looking for a particular item, I would highly recomment the Simblesse Oblige Where can I Find forum.

Meanwhile, I'm building a world for Sims 3.

2 March 2011

Fixed some links on the Sims 1 part of the site. If you see any I missed please Contact me!

Some updates to Stories; the McDark story in particular. There may well be several children with red hair in this World.

I don't currently have Sims 1 installed, and am primarily playing Sims 3. This last week I have managed to get Sims 3 Create A World working at LONG last. It doesn't help that the Help option on the menu bar in CAW points to a defunct page on EA's website... sigh. But thanks to wonderful helpful people, mostly at Neighbourhood 99, I am beginning to understand it and am making a new little world (equivalent to a Neighbourhood in Sims 2 or Sims 1)... watch this space.

26 February 2011

A new Sims 3 Sim, my two versions of the (in)famous JMP of More Awesome Than You. (Young Adult and Elder). Also Mr Garibaldi of Babylon 5.

I spent a significant amount of my birthday working on a Sims 3 Challenge for N99. See it here: 

Shotgun Style


09 January 2011

A very Happy New Year! I've been playing with Sims 3. I think a significant part of the gameplay, for me at least, is playing the puzzle of "getting the Sims to work acceptably". Certainly that has been the major part of my "playtime" for quite some years now. Of course, when it IS all working well, it's so sweet... Anyhoo, I now have Sims 3, World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night and a couple of Stuff Packs installed; and with the help of Pescado's awesomemod and the assistance of the lovely people at Neighbourhood 99, I'm actually at that sweet point at long last, and I have made a couple of things for Sims 3!

So finally we have some Sims 3 downloads. 

The Gerber House, which I actually made some time ago.

Sutty, also from some time back.

And Bay City Cemetery.

23 December 2010

A new story, specially for the Christmas season. And a very Happy Christmas to you all!

The Soupe Children

6-8 November 2010

Here are a pair of new homes that took a great deal of time.

Damerel Street is a multi-occupancy Lot, two medium sized homes on the one Lot, now also available as two rentable homes.

pargeterrow.png (707374 bytes)

This picture of Pargeter Row is actually a shot of three separate houses, on small Lots, which work quite well as a row in town.

3 November 2010

Today I have added some New Sims 2 Walls and floors.

10 October 2010

Sadly, the Farmer Wants a Wife Challenge will not continue. The game it was in and the Sims are lost in yet another SimQuake; it seems the fault of Windows XP this time. (I can tell you that Gabe did eventually find the love of his life in one Tara Katt... but no pictures.)

But I do have an interesting house for you to play with. Marion Terrace

27 July 2010

The Farmer wants a Wife Challenge. Set in Ayodrya, which of the Seven Contestants will win Gabe's heart?

23 July 2010

Today I have some more stories from Ayodrya.

2 July 2010

A new house for Sims 2: Llandudno Blue, also inspired by a photo from last summer.

28 June 2010

Looking through some photographs from last summer. Here is a picture of something I would LOVE to be able to build in Sims 1, 2, or 3. I can do it in Second Life though :)

22 June 2010

Some Updates from Ayodrya: 

14 June 2010

I've put up a couple of Sims 2 Stories from Ayodhya.

June 2010

Well, I am brave - I reinstalled Sims 3, World Builder and World Adventures. With no CC. We will see.

Meanwhile, for Sims 2, I made the Library, a model of an RL place. Quite a large building that you may like as a Neighbourhood Decoration if you don't have a fast computer, but it is fully furnished and functional.

May 2010

A new house, well, estate really. 


29 April 2010

A little update for you. There are some new clothes for Sims 2.

17 April 2010


It appears that my email address is being spoofed. I received a nasty Trojan in an email message to myself this morning. PLEASE - if you get email from sita@simechoes.org, do NOT open any attachments. 

For now, please use my alternate email address, SitaCapak at googlemail.com


30 March 2010

I think the whole site is working now... I have been playing a new Mega Hood (Sims 2) and having lots of fun. Watch out for their stories soon. Meanwhile, I made a couple of shops and a house.

Bell Edge 

Simple Shop with flat 

Department Store with Penthousel
