Sims

I've always wondered what the big deal with The Sims was...

Last night, I messed around with my niece's version of the game, and my writer's brain went wild. I could build a 3D looking house! I could actually SEE Camilla's home, or Liv's, or Mike's... No more sketching a floor plan to give me an idea of what the house looked like -- it could have WALLS. I'm dying here...

I have to admit that it was fun watching the character do stuff and interact (one family kept burning their food - mac and cheese and a toaster pastry, I mean, come on) and I found out that they call, ahem, lovemaking "woo hoo" (this arose from my daughter wanting the character modeled after me to get preggo -- she's dying for a sibling). No, she didn't get to watch the "woo hoo", even though it takes place under the covers. And since the Sim vomited after eating the next morning, she's pregnant. DD went to bed last night dreaming up names for the new baby.

Yes, it's addictive even to 6-year-olds.

I just want the building capabilites. I'm dying to see Camilla's house.

Do you suppose it's a tax write-off?

OH

MY

GAWD

Sims is one reason why I won't use my desktop. Its the only computer with it. I used to wonder what the big deal was with it (my neighbors raved, saying that she'd stay up til all hours playing). Then I tried it. Now I can't stop building houses and making new neighborhoods. And we know how to give our people more money.

Of course I never thought to design houses for my story characters. good idea!
