SC4 hasn't been replaced by a new game so doubt that will disappear.

Sims 2 is still widely popular

SC4 seems to have a new website offering new things. Does this mean they are actually trying to give something back? Bah getting excited now as I so want a SC5 to be made

TS3 aliens? Finally! Now give us OFB and proper apartments, damnit! - EA, you are breaking my heart. - I give up.

I still play Sims 1 from time to time. I got complete collection last Summer and have actually played it a fair amount since then. I still download stuff for it too. Shame it looks like they took the website down though, there were apparently still people uploading to the exchange there. I'm glad I got all the official downloads from there last year.

As for a SC5, we may see one, EA did register SimCity5.com back in June.

it's truly a shame. they did it fairly recently, because google still has a cached version of the sims 1 web page, and it was from august 10th. that means they had to have deleted the website some time within the past 7 days or so.

Yeah i was just being sarcastic about those sites closing,
But yeah, i really want a SC5 because Societies was pretty much some weird title mill game that had the word "sim" in it.

what was societies about, exactly? i play simcity 4 sometimes, but societies sounds like a different concept?


sorry, i'm too lazy to look it up at the moment. :p

You plop down buildings and then can do special actions with certain ones. You have to have enough jobs for everyone in town, or people get pissed off. You have to have enough venues or people get pissed off. There was no real city management system like in Sim City 4. Oh, you also had to keep your carbon footprint down or the game would nag you over and over and over about it.

Oh no! I was looking at the page just days ago and thought I would download all the things when I had the time. The site it's redirected too is also not very updated and won't even load properly for me. Last news was posted at:

If they are going to redirect it, they should atleast update what they direct to, lol.

Hope there is somewhere new where EA is still going to offer those TS1 items. Afterall they still sell, so only makes sense to still offer it.

I got win 7 and it works wonders Have you tried changing the compatibility?

If you can't get it to work you could maybe still try the game help forum. Don't know if they can help (or offer help) though

There are still a bunch of places that still have Sims 1 stuff.

Parsimonius. Clothes, furniture sets, walls and floors :http://www.parsimonious.org/furniture1/

Persimmon Grove. Great for all things outdoors: http://persimmon.ephralon.de/

SiMorpher: http://www.simorphor.com/things.html

Simlogical for hacked obects. http://www.drealm.info/simlogical/s...s/downloads.htm

Paladin's Place has some really great programs for editing Sims after you leave CAS, and seeing and organizing your downloads: http://simwardrobe.com/

Around the Sims: http://aroundthesims.com/

Shiny Things: http://shinythings.madoria.com/index.shtml

Sim Freaks has tons of celebrity heads: http://www.simfreaks.com/home.shtml

Sims Interior Design (seems to be down right now but was working fine a few days ago): http://www.simsinteriordesigns.net/

Simcredible Designs (downloads are on yahoo group): http://simcredibledesigns.com/index2.html

Sim Gedohns (still has some pay stuff, if you can believe it, where's the Sims 1 booty when you need it) Awesome free stuff though: http://www.simgedoehns.de.vu/

Simslice has some useful patches to allow buy/build mode on community lots and upgrade food carts: http://www.simslice.com/freebies/ProgramsAndPatches.htm

And here's a big ole list of sites, some are long gone and others only offer Sims 2 stuff, but it's a place to start (click on the word "list" under the legend: http://theblist.com/index2.html

And of course TSR has a pretty big section of Sims 1 stuff and I think it's mostly free.

aeval99, thank you for the ample list of Sims 1 stuff. You are turning my mind to yearn for the good Sim 1 days with atrocious pathfinding and other difficulties - job friends requirements. I think I recall that Sims 1 had wall hacks for see-through glass walls and floors, and there was Claire the Bear knocking over my trash can, and talk of llama's and gnome workbenches, and the Jekyll and Hyde Chemistry Set. Well, why not - for memories sake I'll reinstall TS1 and have a round of old fun. Relearning the object descriptions will be a riot. Once again, thx everyone!

Oh. I'm so jealous and sad. My computer card has problems dealing with Sims1 and I love that game the most.

What a great game and there are still people playing it and still people creating for it.

How nervy of EA to take down the Sims 1 site even though they are still selling the product. EA sucks.

C& C is a great site. Love the C&C gardening, Norma Jean Blues Bars, and fridges. The fridge/pantry was good too as were the baking ovens. The fridges had so many different plates of food and some of it was cold so kids could just go to the fridge and take out a meal or a platter of say crossants and cold cuts or whatever. The romance between the prodice seller and the flower seller was so cute. Liked the garden shed too.

Parsimonious always had fantastic Sims 1 items for home and community lots. I always loved their creations. They have Sims 1 stuff up though some of it may have been moved already. Here's links to 2 of my faves (you can navigate to all the other Parsimonious Sims 1 stuff from these links):

The beautiful heavenly bodies spa. http://www.parsimonious.org/furniture1/spa/3.shtml

Stark Studio
http://www.parsimonious.org/furniture1/studio/4.shtml

Marina Sims had some great stuff and the site is still up. There is a great medieval set (really lovely arches and columns)
http://marinasims.net/sims1/sims1.html

Around the Sims made wonderful Soms 1 things as well.
http://www.aroundthesims.com/

Well dressed Sims has TS1 clothes, heads/hair, and furniture
http://welldressedsim.com/

TSR still has Sims 1 downloads available.

How are people playing TS1 on Win 7 ? I have Vista and it causes problems. Anyone playing Sims 1 with Vista?

Ohh this discussion is really making me consider installing it! It would run ridiculously fast on my computer, too, considering it ran just fine on my iMac ten years ago.

I really loved the fame system in Superstar (which Late Night seems to be bringing to TS3) and the magic in Makin' Magic (I never got to play witches in TS2 because they didn't release Apartment Life for Mac. :'(

The game plays very fast (which is actually okay since I often played it in fast mode) and the graphics on my computers get reset and funky for everything not TS1 and I get pc messages about there being problems with settings. I had TS1 on my pc this winter but I had to take it off because there were a lot of issue with the pc when it was on there. I was not too surprised since it was created for OS win 95. Also, vista sucks. Should it run ok (other than fast)? I really wanted to keep TS1 on my pc to play superstar and Making Magic and also to be able to create more TS1 looking community lots for TS3. Even though they function differently, I actually like having my TS1 for Ts3 lots in my game since my community lots are more active than the EA lots and it puts a smile on my face to see my sims running from ghosts in The Gothic Quarter or playing foosball at The Lake Barrett Lounge. My sims can spend all day at Solana Landgraab Plaza without getting bored -- that lot plays really well but it reminds me that we don't have a real boutque or a real diner which is sad.

I would love to see screens of the following if any one could post them:

Pool party
Studio Town Spa
Witches dueling on the dueling stage
A sim recording a music video
a sim in the skkydiving or scuba tank
A dog show
A sim filming a show
A sim making a movie
A sim on the modeling runway
Sims suing dress up box
Sims playing chardes

Actually, I think I'd enjoy seeing any screenshots from TS1.

FYI - some people here said things were too small--you only need to change your screen resolution to view the game larger.

Also, there are some good looking faces and hair for Sims 1 at Nightime Sims. The faces come in regular and vampire sims ( eyes are red). There several designers there. Khrymsin was one of my favorites there. http://www.nighttimesims.no/
Also lots of TS1 clothes and faces at Glamour Sims

That's weird. Only thing that changes when I launch the game is the transparent bits of the icons etc go white.

Windows 7 on my laptop (only got some onboard Intel thing here). That's the one where the transparency changes.

It doesn't change anything on my desktop computer, Windows 7 there as well. (Nvidia GeForce 8800GTX BFG Extreme Ed)
