    Hi,

    I am thinking about buying this game for myself to play on daughters DS (she will never notice when she is in bed). I have heard a lot about it in terms that people think it is addictive but am not sure what you do on it or anything - anyone fill me in.

    Also I have seed SIMS Castaway - I think it is new out for Christmas and it says you have to solve puzzles - is this a better game to have. I am confused :think:

    Couldn't tell you what it's like on the DS as I play it on the PC. I've got all the expansions (went to EA headquarters in August to see and play on the new Bon Voyage expansion before it was released). I love that game but have overdone all the customisation you can get to go with it :lol:

    I mainly use it to do stories (take sim pics to go with the stories) and that is fun. I also love designing houses in it.

    :lol: those cheats do come in handy. I use them all the time when designing and doing my stories, but if I'm playing for fun, I refuse to use the cheats.

    Sims is the greatest game ever!! :cheer:
    I have all the expansions pack too hotluck, I'm jealous you went and played Bon Voyage! is it good?? Can you build a hotel and run it as open for business? I'm so excited, getting it for Christmas :cheer:

    I'm so sad I have even made dresses and my own islands and imported them from sim city 4. lol :lol:
    Be careful though as you can waste so much time playing the game. I have hardly played since having Dan. I got seasons recently and I've only played it once.

    ***fights urge to play now***

    Don't know if you know, but there's also a cheat so you don't have to eat, sleep, wash etc. You just move the blue bar up and down.

    Yeah. I'm an admin on a sims site and that's why I went there. Got the expansion free because of it too (they also gave me Seasons while I was there because I hadn't got it :lol: ).

    You can build hotels, but you have to do the same as with the uni expansion and change the lot type. I haven't had much chance to play with it as I've been trying to rebuild my sims lots for the story I was doing last year.

    I'll get you the link to the sims site if you're interested :)

    I love the SIMS!!!!!!

    The new Castaway one looks wicked!

    I used to like throwing a party and then taking away the toilets and watching everyone wet themselves.

    But then I am very childish :roll:

    Yep, the same as with a dorm, but it's a different name as part of the command (can't remember what it is off the top of my head).

    I'll put the link here for you. (I apologise if this is not allowed, in which case please remove it mods.)

    I have to say I was impressed with Castaway. The producer of Castaway showed us it on the wii when we were there in August. :D

    OMG I LOVE THE SIMS!

    My favourite is sims 2 on the pc as I love the way they age and you can create a whole family with multiple generations :)

    I do spend a LOT of time designing houses and people, and love the money cheat hehe

    My favourite trick is if I marry someone I get bored with I put them in the pool and then take away the steps so they cant get out and eventually drown lol :twisted: :rotfl:

    Build a house with a huge fireplace in one room, put lots of furniture near the fire, wack a SIM in there and remove the door.

    I used to like making a baby too!

    :rotfl: you evil people!

    I've got one family where the mother was pregnant with twins, and the father got abducted by aliens and had twins the same day as her. Talk about a nightmare with 4 babies in the house :rotfl:
