SimsZone.de has held a contest on their forums, where the users were asked to make their design for the box of The Sims 2. Because the two best ones got exactly the same amount of votes, there were two winners. There's no real prize except the privilege of calling yourself a winner, and finding the design in the screenshot index of The Sims 2 at Sims Zone. You can find the shots here
. Congratulations to the winners.

, is just one of the many sites created in anticipation of The Sims 2. The site is a great community conversation place for TS2. They have a great TS2 forum system. In there you can talk about anything pretaining to The Sims 2, from asking questions about the game, reading news, and sharing thoughts. Also, aside from forums, they have a chat program that all their members can use. They recently added many avatars to their board's avatar gallery. These are great ways for members to express themselves to other fans. The site is growing fast, but needs member support. Surf over to Sims 2 Talk, register (it's free), and begin participating in the TS2 discussions!
: SimSupreme Closes - SimmingWorld Expands!
Written at 23:49 by Stash - 0 comments
The Sims community recently lost one of its best sites. After many years, Simsupreme
has closed its site. The site was a big part of the online community, and will be greatly missed. SimSupreme was one of the UK’s more popular sim-sites, and was also a big affiliate with Simming World. After the closing, Simsupreme practically merged with their friend, Simmingworld.com
. Thanks to SimSupreme for its great years of service to the community, but don't forget to check out Simmingworld.com
for all kinds of Sim needs, along with SimSupreme's new home.

The Sims Resource has written a long article, which is the first of many, from San Francisco as well. They discuss the many options in CaSIE to create custom skins, and how it all works, like how to create new clothing, and how many you'll have to make. It's only a "Part I" article, which means a lot more news about CaSIE will follow sooner or later. Click here
to check it out.
Similarly, a different fansite, WorldSims
has also posted some information about CaSIE 2 days ago. You can read about their experience here in San Francisco on this page
