Sims 3 Simlish font (immajer-Simlish)

I hope this is all right, and that my post is acceptable...

I was looking for a Simlish font, and found some great ones out there, but none of them quite matched the Simlish shown in Sims 3. So I made my own font. It's got twenty-six letters of the "alphabet" and some symbols, no numbers - but then again, it's not like there's any way of translating Simlish anyway, so. Figured maybe other people would find it useful, too.

The font works fine on my machine (Windows XP) but I don't have the ability to test it elsewhere, so if you notice any issues, please let me know.


You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Anette: EA retooled their written Simlish awhile back. This style first appeared in Freetime, if I remember correctly, and is also used in TS3.

It made me so glad when EA did this - I hated the Wingdings-and-Zodiac blend they used previously.

Thanks for making it into a font, inkandchaos.
