Many people make movies with the Sims 2, and so does TheSidDog. He has opened up a new website on which he has posted his machinima movies. Since the Sims 2 was released TheSidDog has made movies, some of which were contest entries, and others were made just for fun. 11 Of his movies can be downloaded from the website, supporting broadband, dial-up and even iPod Video users. Besides that you can find a BAT building for SimCity 4 on the website too. More movies and downloads will be posted in the future, though the focus will remain on the videos. Visit TheSidDog.com
to get it all.

SimMedia has given away 14 awards in their annual Simmie Awards, as well as a few special ones. The Sims Zone was nominated in 6 of those 14 categories. Where we lost to the host last year, we've won two awards this time: Best News Site and Best Old Site. There are our 6th and 7th awards so far, and as the space on the right is filling up a bit much, we've created an awards page
, complete with acceptance speech and all, where we'll store all our awards. Thank you for all your voting, and congratulations to all the other winners (including our affiliate TSC2
, which won the Best Site Design award). See the 05 Winners
page for a list of all winners - and check out our awards below!

Three sites, Fangree Sims, Sim Universe
and the Sims 2 Office, have joined forces into bringing the community new forums. The new forums are, as many others, a place to talk about the game, ask questions, and more. They've only just started and the place isn't that big yet, but you can register and join in on discussions at any time. Besides forums for several Sims games, you can also talk about Zoo Tycoon or Rollercoaster Tycoon, tell the rest about your own fansite, or you can just have any chat you like. Before posting or registering you're asked to read the rules
. Of course you can go to the forums
to see all the rest that's happening.
