I always liked the painting brought to the game with the seasons expansion depicting a farm trought out a year's four seasons. As I was interested in playing a Sim living from the crop of his field, I built a farm on base of the picture.

I tried to give the house a somehow rural and romantic ambience. For this reason there is e.g. no television or computer. My Sim who made the farm his home passes most of the day outdoors and actually has everything he needs. Therefore one room in the upper floor is empty, I just did not know how to fill it.
But this is obviously up to you to change.

"Sims 2 is done, I know. We got the much better, brighter, funnier, more interesting, more exciting and - of course - more creative Sims 3. So, why should you waist your time with its ugly ancestor?"
* * * Wow... This statement is far beneath the standards I've come to expect from MTS.

This is a lovely home. Thank you.

As for still playing Sims 2: I've got Sims 3 and WA, but I'm so attached to the CC and my cute Simmies in 2, that I can't give them up. I hardly ever play sims 3.

I came here to say good job, but your attitude turned me right off. I have to agree with applefeather2. Your opinions aren't fact, just so you know.

I gave Sims 3 a shot and just don't like it. I'm still firmly on Team Sims 2 and proud of it.

Anyway, in a bid to be constructive, this farm looks nice.

I'm in the same boat. I love my Sims 2 simmies.

And let's give this guy a break, I think English is not his native language so dont' be so harsh!!!

Calm down, people, esp. with that "of course" it sounds to me like he meant it in a more ironic/sarcastic way.

The farm looks nice!

Check out Omicron-Simtauri, my new space project!

Good job on the farm, it's a great likeness to the painting! I like it.

Remember, being paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not after you.

Yeah i just had to comment after reading that, in my opinion the sims 3 has a way to go before reaching it´s potential, i say this without having tried the game, but i have followed it very closely on youtube. As an example i can mention the schoolbus in sims 3 trying to make a u-turn and instead doing a frame by frame up on the sidewalk kind of turn. So it´s not about being poor, it might as well be having higher standards.

This was´nt really to do with the upload but when you write something like that you should have expected a harsh response from the public.

As for the farm, for a no cc lot it is a pretty good download.

I did not mind at negative reactions I might cause while writing - not at all. In my opinion this was just a wee little introduction, no more than that.

I definitely did not intend to make anybody feel offended nor did I want to judge anybody playing The Sims 2/3. It was ment in a ironic way, to make you smile at me, the silly old donkey who is still uploading TS2 content. I considered the self-mockery in my words being obvious and particularly harmless.

Probably I simply acted to naive and everyone else would have known about the public response. To prevent any further agitation I deleted the mentioned paragraph. Concerning this unexpected misunderstanding, I am really sorry.

Perhaps we reacted too strongly over love of the game, since this was all a misunderstanding i´ll apologize in kind.
