Awesome find! I've been a long time Sims player and have always been amazed by the creativity of the Sims' community but never expected something like what the creators of Living Sims have done. A magazine about Sims creations that's also a downloadable object for the game--how delightfully meta.

@Lloyd - I'm still flabbergasted by it - REALLY!

I was an avid player of Sims 2. I bought game and the updates and often scanned web sites for new player produced content for hours.

But when Sims 3 came out and I was asked by its creators to re-buy everything I had purchased before it screamed "Planned obsolescence" at me.

Quite frankly it felt as if someone had urinated in my morning coffee.

@Julie - EA has balls of steel when it comes to doing that to their customers. I've been playing since Sims 1 which means this will be the THIRD iteration of re-purchasing all the expansions times 3 PLAYERS IN OUR HOUSEHOLD.

I've gotten over that retarded aspect of their business model. What burns my ass is that they have that stupid RMT store with their lack luster content. Their designs border on hideous and the in game content so freakin' sparse. I'm rather offended that they spent the time to build content for RMT but had so little based content to a game that players have supported, including buying the expansions for years. This time there's even less base content. Their RMT can kiss my ass. I'll pay a player for content before I give EA one penny for their custom crap.
