Hello everyone!

This is my attempt on uploading something to programs/utilities section of the site.

A new simlish font, based on Courier new, modeled by carefully eying the Immajer-simlish by inkandchaos.

Below comparison with Courier New should help you solve the Greetings on top!

I made most basic characters, along with some things I wanted to add, like the German ü and ß, as well as the å, ä, and ö that are a part of Finnish (and some other) language.

The font's base size is unfortunately small, but it should be readable from 20pt and up. I used 48pt on my font versus the 24pt Courier new, on the pic above, I think.

How to install?
Download the file and unpack it (or just open the rar up)
Double click on the Finnlish simlish.ttf
Hit on install button that should pop up with the preview.

Made and tested in Windows 7. I have no doubt it wouldn't work on other Windows OS's, have been told it works on MAC, and have no idea if it works on Linux (suppose it does). :D

Additional Credits:
- Adobe Illustrator
- FontCreator

Lee, for the name, advices and testing, thanks!
My kid, for being at school and out playing the whole day, so I had peaceful time to do this and cuss my **** off!

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.

Armiel, even though I can't make anything like mods or meshes because I use a mac, but good news is the font works on mac. It is a .ttf file which is a font file. :D
