Simlish to become official language in France [Update]
Written at 10:10 by ChEeTaH - 2 comments.

Rumours are currently spreading about Simlish becoming an official language soon. In France, to be precise. Due to the huge popularity of the Sims games in France, the French parliament will take a vote tomorrow to make Simlish an official language of the country. The main reasoning behind it is that many teenage girls talk Simlish in everyday life. As such, the made-up language has gained a lot of popularity in the past decade. Opponents say that French should be the single official language in France, like it has always been. It is currently unclear if all French colonies will also have to accept Simlish as official language. If the vote is accepted, schools will probably start teaching the language soon, once all the teachers have brushed up their Simlish vocabulary and grammar. We'll keep you up to date with this news, and let you know as soon as any officials respond on this matter.

[Update] Of course the above is an April Fool's joke. As far as we know, Simlish is an official language only in SimCity and nowhere else. And the French? They'll keep using French as their main language.

Downtime during Easter
Written at 14:42 by ChEeTaH - 0 comments.
Due to a failing server and tech support being closed during the Easter holidays, this site was unavailable for over two days. Good news is that we have now moved the site over to a newer, faster and hopefully more reliable server. If you're reading this, that means everything has gone well and you can now enjoy our site again as usual. Some things may not work properly yet (most likely one of them is user registration): we are working on resolving such issues as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience during this process.

New uploads
Written at 19:42 by TammyB - 0 comments.
Hello all, TammyB here, hoping that everyone had a great Easter. Due to work, I have been away from the sims for far too long. Now that I am back, I hope to have new uploads each week that I hope everyone will enjoy.

Lately, I have been trying some new ideas with this next series of homes called "Jazzy Blue" I have created. Such as spiral staircases and split levels on the second story and such. I'm not too thrilled how the game renders wall color on these split levels, but it does create a cool floor plan. Anyhoo, check back often and I hope you enjoy these next few uploads.

Delays & Disruptions
Written at 02:20 by Andy - 2 comments.

I would like to apologise for the delay in my continuing series of reports about The Sims 3 World Adventures. This is partly due to offline complications and also because of a computer crash. Although most of my install has been recovered, a lot of work has been lost.

Please rest assured that my reports will be completed by the time Ambitions is released at the beginning of June.

Again, I am sorry for the delay and I thank you for your patience.
