Welcome Back to TSO, Soon!
The game this blog was originally based upon: The Sims Online (TSO) which sadly shut down in August 2008, is being revived by a wonderful group of dedicated programmers from the forever loyal TSO fanbase.
Thus far, it has more than 4,700 members and have witnessed massive support and praise. However, in order to speed up the programming process and bring it back in a record time to the consistently supportive fans and members (to both PC & Mac for free!), the project is seeking more members/supporters, recognition, promotion, and most importantly programmers.
Therefore, we kindly ask you to visit the website, register and be active on the forums, apply for positions if you are qualified and willing to participate in this massive yet exciting project, and PLEASE spread the word. Also, there is a facebook fan page that you could ‘like’ in order to keep track of (almost) day-to-day updates.

Here’s to the day we can all actually meet and hangout in our beloved game!
Go on and spread the word 🙂
Sims 3: World Adventures (first expansion pack) coming November 16.
After weeks of spreading rumors and posts on various online stores and websites, the first Sims 3 expansion pack has finally been announced by EA.
In a press release on August 3 (offical release), EA announced that The Sims 3: World Adventures is in development and would ship the week of November 16, 2009.
Moreover, in an official post on The Sims 3’s blog, brief information was provided about the upcoming expansion pack. However, it is easily concluded that is similar to The Sims Vacation and The Sims 2 Bon Voyage expansions ( no new innovative ideas? ).
Landmarks of Egypt, France & China in the game.
Despite the similarity in the ideas, World Adventures seems to be a bit more promising with the new features that it would bring about. Possibly the most interesting feature yet known, is the ability to visit various destinations and landmarks that are existent in the world today.
The features mentioned in the Sims 3 post include:
Accept challenges, find treasures, discover what’s lurking in hidden caves and more.
Explore famous landmarks in China, Egypt, and France.
Learn new skills like photography and pursue new opportunities.
Meet new Sims from exotic locations and share their cultures.
Customize your Sims homes with new styles & artifacts from their adventures.
Get $10 worth of free SimPoints for The Sims 3 Store, and additional online features to be announced.
More information to be reported as soon as they are announced.
A new patch – Patch 1.3 has been released on 07/27/09 which fixes tons of bugs.
From the official Sims 3 post, here is the list of bugs that have been fixed:
However, it is important to note that this patch have caused problems to so many people, including Sims will no longer use objects if it’s in another room. You have to manually move your Sim to the room in question and then use the object.
Other problems that people experienced are: Slowdowns, crashes, sound problems and custom content no longer working.
Therefore, we created a poll (at the right) regarding this new patch. Please make sure to cast your votes. 🙂
The Sims 3 has finally arrived! It is already receiving excellent reviews, mostly around 90%.
Please don’t hesitate to reply here and tell us what you think about the game!
Happy simming! =)
