The Sims 3 is a 2009 strategic life simulation computer game developed by The Sims Studio and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to the best-selling computer game, The Sims 2.

Outfits! Want! Specifically the gray one...though I want it in black and a nice deep dark red/burgundy, and a dark green and a dark navy blue


Hm, interesting! :D

I've never played the sims, but that looks like interesting fun :)

On a side tangent, I do wonder, even though it might be lonely, if its possible for Linden Labs to release a standalone version of second life?
Where content creators could have a local huge plot of land to store their online creations offline, like a backup, should linden lab choke, or something.
Perhaps one where others could visit your local land should you use port forwarding.

Anyway, is the Sims fun?
Is the point of the game to just manage the characters?
And I was unaware it had such customization options.
Would you recommend it to me as a fan of Second Life?

And thank you for posting updates, I really find them enjoyable :)

@Drew The Sims 3 is a bit more involved than a standalone SL would be. Lots and LOTS of customization, but you're not really making an avatar for yourself so much as a character you control (more or less.) There's lots of opportunity for exploration and such, so it's a great series that I think lots of SLers would enjoy.

@Birgit I considered it, but because I use SO much CC, in addition to slider mods/hacks/tweaks, it's just not feasible for me to put them on the Exchange. They would appear differently or altogether broken for the majority of people downloading them, so it'd be a big headache for everyone. Sorry! :\


Ohh really? Cool! :D

Thank you for your explanation ^u^
I will have to try it out myself, that sounds really fun :p


Wow, great project and a very nicely written account! I'm very impressed.


haha wow your Heighclere castle is amazing! have you been there before it's so beautiful!

It is a magical things when a love of the two greatest things in the world (Downton Abbey and The sims 3) come together... ;)


You've done an excellent job. I've recently become a Downton Abbey fan and I am a long time (since 2000) Simmer.

Are you aware of sites that can give you mods so you can lock out certain Sims, perform more tasks and generally manager your game the way you like them?

Your Lady Mary is excellent!
