The new forum is well...

The New Forum

I just can't adjust. I take an instant dislike to almost anyone. People either seem to say generic compliments or suggestions or are purposely difficult and hostile. Wheres the good quality from times past? That fine old vintage of yesteryear!

I don't recognise anyone on he forums except the trolls.
Which brings me to another factor, the forum is heavily under moderated. (Never thought you'd hear me saying that did ya!)

All in all I'm not overwhelmed but I guess I'm the bob and betty newbie in the sims world now. My question is this, just where are the Mortimer and Bella Goths?

(Hey look at that hit counter, for a fairly inactive blog I'm not doing so bad, thanks all, gloating over)

I'm on the New Forum!

Hey Guys and Girls!

I don't know if anyone will even read this anymore but hey just thought I'd say I'm on the new forum now. The name is Sim_Romanov. Don't be a stranger, if you see me be sure to say hi! And to make things easier call me SR. Not many people get my name anyway, a lot think its just a funny way of spelling Roman, and as great as their empire was I'd take Imperialist Russian Autocrats over Caesars any day!

For reference I'm using the same old picture of a young Mortimer Goth that I've been using for many moons. Namely this one.

It's Been a While...

It has been quite some time hasn't it, so long in fact that I almost forgot what my password was.
But nevertheless I am here to say "Hi".

I've been getting all nostalgic and wondering how everyone is.
Most of you I see are about as active as I am. Not that I blame you, I totally understand. Its sad but such is the nature of life, why should it be any different on the web right?

So an update about me for anyone who actually wants to know (I'm guessing for anyone reading this your probably here by mistake, emergency exits are towards the front and rear of the blog)

Well I've been good. I've been writing a lot, not blog writing clealry, but writing fiction. So thats been a lot of fun and continues to be. I am still trying to figure my life out, and its dawning in me that perhaps no one ever does figure their life out, but I'll leave that one for the philosophers. I've not touched a sims game in the longest time. Life is just so busy, but its a good busy. 

You'll be pleased to know I've behaved as a good little boy in the interim, I've managed to avoid breaking any laws or finding myself on the bad end of a harmful or addictive substance. 
(Stay in school kids) 

Being a new year I've set myself some goals, to get up earlier and to go to bed earlier 
(ha its currently 4 minutes past midnight).
Other goals include finding a new job, I've had a good run at my current job but time for soemthing new I think. 

As for my long term future?
Well I'm not much one for a career, I was in school, you know how it is plans for uni, dreams of the middle class suburban life. Well I've changed since then. First I want to get my book written (not necessarily published, just written, sorta like a bucket list thing). Second I want to travel, I have been overseas in the past but I want to do some proper travelling, by that I mean I want to move offshore, try my luck in different parts of the world, see what sticks. 

I guess I'm a bit of an oddball, don't get me wrong I'm not a slacker, I'm a firm believer in hard work and determination. I'm just testing the water for a life of less structure. Free spirit and all that. Who knows I am a teenager, it may, like all this, pass eventually.

As for my future with the Sims?
Well The Sims 3 has well and truly become a part of my past, and I don't see it in my future. The Sims 4, maybe. 

The one thing in my immediate future is a pillow and a night of rest. And perhaps some french radio, I find it helps me sleep and I pretend it somehow makes me more cultured. 

Goodnight all.
 (Assuming someone actually reads this and that its actually night when you do)

Simmers In Defence of CAST


Create-A-STyle: As shown in the trailer above CAST offers a diverse level of customisation. 
In EA's apparent haste and supposed 'desire' to make a "basic game that is perfect and "stable" the developers of Sims4 have elected at this point not to include CAST.
I urge all simmers who want this powerful tool available in the next incarnation of Sims speak up on the forums. 
I don't want to sound sensationalist, I do this with a touch of humour.
I just feel that CAST is a tool we need to see in TheSims4

I even made a signature!

By the way I got 150,000 hits.
It was a little over 50,000 hits ago that I took off.
I will be returning with The Sims 4. But not quite yet, I am on the new sims 4 forum and will be active again on this blog in the months after Sims 4 is released.
