More Sims 1 Woes

I’m quite bored of Sims 1 now. And I’ve only been playing it for 3 days!
So near... and yet so far

In fact, I’m going to have a go at installing Theme Park again. I don’t know if it works on XP. Probably not, but maybe it’ll work okay with DOSBox.

Super Happy Sims 1 Fun

11 April 2008 at 20:17 (Random Randomness, Screenshots, Sims 2) (, , )

Meh, I finally did it. I installed TS1 and I’m not even joking, it took a whole hour just to install. Anyway, gameplay was kinda confusing at the beginning, because I’m used to TS2 gameplay, but I’ve got the hang of it now (kinda). The thing is because I installed all 7 EPs, before even playing the base game, there was so much to learn in one go. So right now I’ve decided to ignore most of the stuff and concentrate on just the Unleashed pack and the Superstar pack (which is the one I was mostly interested in anyway).

Two things that are annoying: the rotate/zoom! Argh! You can’t even zoom in that much and the rotate thing is so annoying I don’t even bother unless I really need it. The other thing, making friends seems so much harder than in TS2. Or is it just my imagination? So far my poor little Simmie has only made one friend.

Anyway, here are a few piccies. This is the only sim I’ve played so far, Catherine Star. She currently has a fame rating of 3. Tee hee hee.

Sims 1 Woes

4 April 2008 at 20:13 (Random Randomness, Sims 2) (, , )

I am so bored of Sims 2. There’s only so much you can do before you feel you’ve seen it all. So, umm, I’m actually feeling quite tempted now to install Sims 1, since I have the entire collection – which I’ve never even installed, let alone played.

Now, the only questions are, will I ever get that desperately bored? And can I actually summon the energy to install it?
