What is this blog for ?
Browsing the net I find many solutions to known issues that are not fixed even after two years and having to write the same answers over and over became very exhausting so I decided to collect them in one place for everyone to link. I started a blog in German in November 2009 and because of it’s success I decided to translate it to English (we all know how good those automatic translations really are).
There is already a similar resource out there. The Sims Wiki by MTS and it’s a very good source for solutions to all kinds of problems and I’m referring to them frequently. I made my own to have the freedom I want to post what I want in the form that I want.
I’m not going to repeat what is already there though, so if you have a problem you find a solution to here, refer to it the Wiki. The sections of their game help are linked on the right hand side. Most of the problems can be solved by doing the steps in their Game Help one by one: Sims 3 Game Problem.
You won’t find any instructions concerning game play itself, there are so many resource for those out there, I can’t count them.
This blog is dedicated to your everyday Simming Issues, some are technical and some are bugs.
