No. It was bought as a gift for me, and it's very very pretty, but DAMN is it boring. I occasionally play TS3 but fucked up when I bought a disc for IP and now Origin is required, so I removed it all and have to start over (yes yes I will pirate IP like I should have from the start). I have TS2 fired up right now. Still the best one.

What do you mean origin is required?  Mine asks if you want to install it, I just say no, everything works fine without origin.  Unless you have the downloaded version, you don't need to install origin (unless Eaxis did something nuts with newer releases of the disc version).  Origin is one of the reasons I haven't installed TS4.

You can use the super patch to revert TS3 to 1.67 if you accidentally (or intentionally) installed 1.69.

The new Island Paradise discs require Origin if you want to install the game, and naturally you have to leave Origin in (and running) for your game to work. Phoning home makes me pissy.

You can use the super patch to revert TS3 to 1.67 if you accidentally (or intentionally) installed 1.69.

Would that work on a newer disc that installs origin with it? Had BFBVS so I lost everything non-important. I reaaaaally don't want to have to pull out my eye patch and hunt down legit yarrs.

It should work. I had to reinstall TS3 through Origin when I built a new PC, since I had originally purchased it through EADM (I know, HUGE mistake). Running the 1.67 super patch downgraded the install so that Origin is no longer required.

For me it's a toss-up between 2 and 3.  Tried the free trial for 4, and I agree, it's a Facebook/mobile game, just for PC.  I didn't mind CAS but actual game play...well, if the base game comes down in price to, say, $10, then MAYBE....

Now for TS3...1.69 has the expansion and stuff pack manager, doesn't it?  I've personally never had an issue with it (running Windows 10, don't know if that's relevant).  I actually like that feature, since IMO most of the TS3 expansions don't integrate as well as TS2's do unless you make custom worlds.  And one of these days I may take another stab at figuring out CAW.

Did you know that "sheeple" was recently canonized by Merriam-Webster? The last post just made me think of that, but I can't quite put my finger on why.

The cheese forum has developed a funny smell. Probably due to lack of cheese nazi minding the stock.

Heh, Starler, the posts refuse to change their post order. I should complain about that in the cheese forum if I were you. The cheese nazi is waiting for you. She's sniffing things and looking very grumpy.

I got the Sims 4, but I didn't like it so I don't play it.  Instead I managed to get my copy of the original Sims working (which was hard because I have a modern gaming PC running Windows 10).

I haven't played the original Sims, since Sims 2 came out in 2004. I am running windows 10 so I doubt with my lack of computer skills it would even work.Istill have all the discs.  Grin

I actually have the Sims 2 as well, and have that working on this computer too.

That was actually harder to get to work than the original Sims - for that I just had to make it run in admin mode and windowed, but display at the maximum size it can (which is still much smaller than the screen size of a modern monitor), and you also need to Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then cancel, after it loads or all you can see is a black box even though the game loaded.

That was nothing compared to Sims 2, where the main difficulty is that I have each individual expansion instead of some sort of complete set combo.  That means that in order to install each expansion the previous expansion needs to be updated to the latest patches.  But though said patches are provided on the disc, they refuse to install.  So I ended up trying to overwrite my installation for each expansion with the files from my archived Sims 2 game from the pre-Sims 3 era, and that worked somehow.  I'm convinced that short of something like that or hackery beyond my skills, it's probably impossible to install Sims 2 on a modern PC unless you have the all-in-one combo set.

FYI: I have a modern PC but run Win7. I can install and update Sims 2 with no problems.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that the fault is with Windows 10 not playing nicely with the older-than-dirt patching program and not with the PC hardware being too uber.

I'm running 2 and The Pudding on Windows 10. I don't have a single combo set, so it does take forever to install everything but is running fine so far.
