We've had quite a few folks encouraging the artists to do more stuff for The Sims 1, so it's really good to hear another voice in favor of it!

For SimsHost sites, keep an eye on the Chronicle. Several of the artists do things for it occasionally.

I very rarely mention sites before they're opened, but just a couple of days ago I got an inquiry about web space for a new Sims 1 site. I haven't got the data to set up the site yet, but this could be a portent of even more fun!

Hey, while you're downloading things from Dincer's site, let me know if you ever figure out something clever to do with that moon rover!
lol

LOL I have no idea what to do with that Rover! However, when I saw it on Moon Sims, I knew I had to see what else the artist had done. I wasn't disappointed. His stuff is just amazing.

Thanks Miros I will go check that tutorial out. Right now, I'm trying to get all my downloads organized and was thinking about doing a FAR file, but unfortunately many of the links to the tools you need to do it are broken in the tutorial at Killersims.

Try FarOut at http://www.simwardrobe.com Try googling for FarEdit, I think it was at simprograms, but they've changed the url.

Once you've made your fars, drag the iffs out of your game so you can test them.

Don't run the far tools while tmog, the game or any other tool is running.

Here's a direct link to the tutorial that Rose mentioned:

How to Make Skins for The Sims
http://moonsims.asi.org/tech/how-to-skin-01.html

Most of the Photoshoppery works for The Sims 2 clothing, too.

Ah thank you Greg. I couldn't find it when I went to Moon Sims and the tutorial by Carla is the one that confused me so bad that I gave up after reading the first page.

Yes there are still a lot of people still playing Sims 1 and a lot of new people just starting. With the new game pack of The Sims with all 7 expansions selling for about the same price as the original game and a lot of people not being able to upgrade their computers, some of the yahoo groups are seeing a lot of new players. It really would be a shame if these people could not get the downloads that make the game so much fun. I was going to join SimsHost next month but if all the sims 1 downloads are being pulled then there is no sense in me joining

To the best of my knowledge, all of the webmasters we host are keeping their Sims 1 stuff on their sites. Some are still making neat things for The Sims 1, too.

Gotta ask: Where did you hear anything different?

Hi Greg. Two things made me wonder if maybe that is what is happening. First in this disscusiion webmasters were wondering if its any use to include Sims 1 creations and second have been trying for over a week to find the Sims 1 section for The Sims Republic which says its for Sims 1 and 2 but I can't seem to access Sims 1 area

Kelly recently reformatted her site so I'm guessing that she just made a boo-boo and left out the link to her Sims 1 stuff.

So... at the risk of incurring Kelly's ire by bypassing her brilliant new site design... try here:

The Original Republic
http://thesimrepublic.simshost.com/sims1/sims1index.html

I think all those pages should still work. (I found 'em by snooping.)

In addition to The Sim Republic, look at all the other sites, especially the older ones. Several of the original Sims 1 artists seem to have become discouraged when the The Sims 2 came out, but there are hundreds of thousands of things for The Sims 1 among all those sites.


Oh, and don't overlook the silliest Sims 1 download of all time! lol


Moon Sims Moon Rover
(It's on the Moon Sims site, which is my site, but not hosted by SimsHost.)

Me too! To this day I think about trying to make Moon Sims into what I originally intended it to be, but time and energy are limited.

Well it is 2006, the year I turn 50, and I still am gonna play sims 1.. I just bought today the complete set.. No reason other than it was the price of just one of these addictive EP shocked Where were the great prices when the games came out.

Anyway, I have not posted on this site in a bit, so what the heck. I'll admit I cannot stop and I have four GB of downloads in the game right now.

I have almost a GB of downloads to still put in the game.. Hmmm.. Am I crazy? confused

4 gigabytes of downloads? Wow! That must be a record somewhere!

How long does it take to start up the game?
