Hi everyone! Jayce from Western Australia here...

|I think we all had the Sims in us somewhere. I love that the game re-awakens the childhood imagination we had to leave behind when we grew up and got all sensible! |
Speak for yourself! I haven't grown up yet and I'm certainly not sensible! Hee heee!!!
|I'm going to go for a swim down the beach in the morning, do my laundry then make a big cup of coffee and absorb myself in the Harbour!|
Enjoy your swim and your visit to Christophe Harbour.
By the way, I borrowed the name from an undeveloped development here on my island, which due to the economic crisis has been stalled for years. I never expected my little story to gather a following! I think my story is doing better than the real thing! I hope my tale doesn't get so well-known that I get sued!
Of course, all I 'borrowed' was the name...I imagine my version to be a bit like New Orleans...sub tropical, with a rich and somewhat mysterious multi-cultural history. Here's the real thing: Christophe Harbour, St. Kitts.
"The Harbour...The scandal continues in this TS2 epic about the lives and loves of the residents of Christophe Harbour."

Thanks for the clarification.
The good news is that you have a pile of bios to draw on, should you need one in a hurry

Jayce, I can relate to what you're saying.
I don't have any immediate friends and fam who play TS2.
Two of my daughters did for awhile, but they go in spurts with it and have such busy lives.
My Sissy has played, on occasion, but not of late.
I have never been into those intense action games either.
Too much blood and guts for me, plus all that fast action makes me anxious!
|Sims 2 is completely open-ended. There are no limits to the depth and scope of the game. Sometimes I've been shocked at how authentic my sims' feelings are about something particular to them ... Why does it make me happy to see them happy in that joyful over-the-moon way they get?|
Yes, I feel a deep affection for my sims.
I can't tell you how many of us can relate to that.
We are SOOOO with you there.
|I love seeing how everyone at Sugah's brings their sims to life.|
We would love it if you'd start your own thread, Jayce.

Thanks for all your comments (Astral Faery, Ullwera, Autumnelle, twerplina, ilikefishfood, Sugah). You guys make me feel so welcome to chat away
Sugah, I'd love to start a thread about my game, so thanks for directing me around the site. I'm a bit Stone Age when it comes to technology (I only just sent my first email last year haha) and this is the first forum I've ever checked into, instead of just reading, so bear with me while I figure out how to upload some pictures!

Perhaps this little tutorial by Soloaris might help with posting images at Sugah's Place, Jayce.
Remember, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
|Subject: Cool! Wed May 09, 2012 2:38 pm|| |
Wow, thanks for the advice, Sugah
The tutorial by Soloaris was really helpful and easy to understand. I'm really amped to get started on a story now!
|Subject: Re: Hi everyone! Jayce from Western Australia here... Wed May 09, 2012 9:30 pm|| |
Yay!!! That's great, Jayce!
So glad Soloaris' image posting tutorial was helpful.
Remember, you don't have to share storie
s, per se.

Whether you just want to share your Sim fams' antics, pics of any decorating or building you've done, or just some fun captures of your Sims ...
We'd love to see them all
Thank you, again, for being here with us.

Welcome, Jayce. It's always nice to meet someone else who is passionate about their sims. Like you, I don't have anyone in my life outside of the internet who sims. I had a roommate in college who played the sims too. That was the original game, before TS2 came out and my brother played both games briefly. I think we chipped in together to get the first game and he borrowed my copy of TS2 at one point. But he doesn't play now and one time he accused me of talking about the sims too much.
It's definitely nice to find other people online who know what you're talking about.
I'm looking forward to hearing more about your simming adventures!

Sugah, everyone here is just so lovely and
... SIMpatico! How did you collect such a beautiful bunch of people in one place?!
SimEm, thanks for your nice welcome. Every time I saw one of your comments when I was reading ilikefishfood's "Christophe Harbour" story here at Sugah's, your profile picture (the redhead version) reminded me so much of a friend of mine, it was uncanny! I laughed out loud when you said your bro says you talk too much about Sims
I've learned to (ahem) curb my enthusiasm.
In my first hood (which ended up a black hole that ate my computer), I finally married off Jack Diamond and Georgia Merriweather, a long-term relationship couple who had Family second-aspirations and, since they were so nesty and in love, I decided to gamble on that option "Try For a Baby" which I'd only done once before (a disaster: twins, so stressful I abandoned the family and returned ages later once I was a better dad). When Georgia and Jack had their baby, Sam, do you think I could talk about anything else for days?! Talk about eyes glazing over and people thinking I was more socially-retarded than normal!

Which profile picture? This one?
That is Judith from my sim story Arrendale Heights.
The one I had before that with the darker hair was my simself. (I can't find that picture right now.)
It was several years ago when he commented that I talk about the sims a lot. I took it to mean too much, so I pretty much stopped talking about them to other people. I had to tell my husband the other day that his new haircut reminded me of a style from The Sims. I don't think he knew what I was talking about. I'm not sure he knows what sims are.
The first time you get twins in the game is really exciting. I'm not surprised you wanted to talk about it.

|Sugah, everyone here is just so lovely and ... SIMpatico! How did you collect such a beautiful bunch of people in one place?! |
Thank you, Jayce. I feel truly blessed and very appreciative of the lovely group of devoted team & forum members we have here.
I try very hard to maintain a comfortable, safe, pleasant haven for folks who still love the Sims 2 to hang out in.
I don't abide rudeness or hatefulness as I'm sure our dedicated bunch will confirm.
|When Georgia and Jack had their baby, Sam, do you think I could talk about anything else for days?! |
I guarantee you a bunch of us can relate to that statement, sir!!!

That's her, SimEm! Judith. I'll have to check out your story know I know who she is. She looks even more like my friend now I've seen her in a close-up. Maybe I just play my game so much that people begin to resemble sims?!
That's funny about your hubby. I've had a sims haircut for years! I start work stupidly early in the morning (busting out coffee for the masses) and can't be bothered dealing with hair at 6am, so it's basic. Like Maxis basic.
The twins were the first birth in my first hood. I think I was, I guess like a lot of expectant parents, unprepared. Is there an EP that lets you study parenting that's not in the base game or something? I don't remember having that option or EP at the time so I really didn't know what those poor twins wanted and when! And their parents were so sleep deprived. I didn't play cheats to start with either, I just didn't know enough about gameplay. God, I felt so bad leaving them in the middle of a crisis like that but I did go back to their lot when I got a handle on having babies and the twins grew up gorgeous and well-adjusted. Which is what we all want for our kids, isn't it?

Sugah, that's what makes your site so lovely to visit!
Sometimes I feel so despairing when I read the newspaper - I just can't believe what some people do to the innocent and defenseless, like children and animals - that it really is a breath of fresh air to find a little corner of the universe where people express support, gratitude, respect and friendship so easily and naturally
You have a truly special place here, Sugah! Thankyou for putting in all your hard work and time into making your place what it is!
