Eh don't worry! My friend's Mother is a Grandmother of Teenagers and pulls all nighters playing!

Last I heard, she was making only alien people and they were named after different types of nuts or something like that.

A 256mb radeon 9600xt despite not being ATI's best attempt at graphics cards should be more than enough for me to play sims2. I'm also not using any hacks. This game just has loading times to rival my xbox no matter what system I try it on. I'm not that patient. Which is what led to the xbox being mostly demoted to a dvd player.

Hacks or not, it *is* a slow-loading game, particularly if you have expansions installed. I hate to wait for it, and this computer loads it faster than any other system I've ever played it on. I still have to wait about fifteen minutes before I can actually play.

I actually have several versions of the game myself, and on several different plat forms, including a few of the original sims games on the computer, Sims 2 for the computer, though currently I don't have a computer to play it on yet, Sims 2 for the PSP and PS2 and Sims 2 Pets for the PS2. Sims 2 Pets for the PS2 is a bit lower key than the other ones, but you can control your sim(s) directly, and can raise both dogs and cats. I currently have 2 families on that game: one with 2 dogs and one with a cat. BTW, I actually posted several youtube videos on the Sims 2 games.

Whooooo do I LOOOOVE sims! I have been only playing it on PS2, buuuut I am about to install it on my new laptop now that yall mention it! I have sims2 and sims pets, have only been plaing pets though, go figure.

I don't use the cats though... they don't do as much as the dogs, and they all look kinda funky to me, lol.

My fave mod is the Insimenator, it does everything.

I love the sims, my hubby just got me Mansion and Garden stuff, and I actually paid for all the stuff at the sims store for the spooky stuff, and the castle stuff. I am so addicted. When ever I say sims, all my friends sigh, espcially my best friend (who addopted Merri N Pippin), he just laughs at me and pokes fun at me. He doesn't like it much because it takes me away from WoW... LOL Every time a new stuff pack or expansion comes out. I have all the stuff and expansion packs, as well as some of the stuff that you can get at the sims store. I am thinking about ordering the collectors eddition of Sims 3 I need to make my mind up really soon before they run out.

I got into sims in '93 while I was playing the classic sim city. I thought how fun it would be to play the people not just build the town. I also had almost all the sim games for Snes. I still do. I buy almost every sim game I can. I am so pathetic... lol

Anyway, I have been working on some Gingerbread walls for The Sims Resource. I will be uploading them soon. I also build houses for the site. My name there is KandleLore.

Be safe, and happy simming

OMG lol it is. My laptop loads it very fast, and so does my desktop. Before I was waiting about 45 minutes for it to load. I got rid of all my custom made stuff, and use only the base objects. I do have some downloads, but not very many. Well I have tons, but they aren't installed. I have started installing them by what kind they are, and putting the folders in based on what theme I want at the time. It makes it so much better and easier for me. I have to defrag my com a lot though from moving files around like I do.

Google: Sims2Pack Clean Installer
It will help you in your organization and when ever you install more stuff.
I notice the game runs slower the longer you play. If you play A LOT like me, then once a year I have to start over. The installer above also will let you know of hacks, duplicates, or bad files.

Do they have the cellphone version out yet?

I had to buy a new computer last week, and I am thrilled at how fast my game loads now. I have completely quit using custom content like clothes/hair/furniture because the additional loading time is just not worth it to me. (I used to have several gigs in my downloads folder, and start-up and lot loading was agonizing.) I do still use game mods, but mostly just the fixes for bugs and annoyances. I know I would not be playing this game anymore without some of those mods!

Can't wait to see what The Sims 3 brings in February!!!

Oh I have got to pitch in here!!

I confess, I am a huge addict. My laptop died a while ago (hence why I was totally MIA for a while!), and all I could think of was "I can't wait to get Sims back!!"

I have all the expansions, but only the first two stuff packs. I also have far too many mods and custom content. The lots do load slower now, but I just do go anywhere very often, solves that problem.

It's funny, though... When I start up Sims, Evie *always* decides it's time to cuddle, and hops up on my lap, forcing me to move the laptop out of her way. So it doesn't load slow enough! It gets loaded up and sits there staring at me begging me to play while Evie is still keeping me occupied!
