That would be so cool!




LOL, H&M and IKEA existed way before Sims 2. They just got sim versions.

I actually had no idea H&M and IKEA existed because the first H&M only opened in our place last year and I thought they were just imaginary brands like WcDonald's for copyright purposes.


My life is a series of incomprehensible sketches, illegible notes, and running away from angry reptiles. I don't enjoy that last one.

I knew that both companies existed in reality prior. I was trying to add a spoiler to say so but I left my post as it was as I thought it would be funny. Clearly someone found it funny.

I knew about IKEA, but had never heard of an H&M before. One recently opened in a nearby city. I saw it and immediately thought, "What a disappointment. The stores looked so much bigger in Sims."

So many things to learn; so few brain cells to process the info needed to learn things!

I can't believe that picture just reminded me of an old Sesame Street episode I saw as a youngster. Some character shaped like the letter 'W' committed some sort of crime and the detectives tried looking for him. When they did encounter him, he just flipped over to disguise himself as a letter 'M', which I think he got away with momentarily. I don't recall what happened after that.

Wait, WcDonalds is a real place? XD I thought it was just a fake name they used in anime to avoid copyright issues.

The only H&M in the region here is 3 floors. That's big for me but maybe that's standard in other countries? I can't imagine playing a 3-floor clothing shop in The Sims though!

Oh, no, it is fake and that's what it's for.

Wow, from 1971? Not that it makes me feel old as I wasn't around then, but it makes me happy that I watched good ol' cartoons and kids' TV shows like that as a kid.

I don't know if it's nostalgia, but I miss the older cartoons. Courage the Cowardly Dog has always been my favorite, but I remember The Flintstones era and later shows like Aah! Real Monsters and Rugrats, then there was stuff like SWAT Kats, Extreme Ghostbusters, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I vaguely remember Bear in the Big Blue House, Bananas in Pyjamas, and Barney.

I had to look up who Mr. Rogers was. I thought you meant Kenny Rogers, the singer who co-founded Kenny Rogers Roasters.

Same, and I've seen most of what Sketching mentioned, or at least the names sound vaguely familiar like 'Bear and the Big Blue House'. I'm quite pleased that I grew up at a decade where almost every local channel had kid shows running before and after school, and Saturday mornings were all cartoons. Before the WB channel changed to CW, I watched Pokemon every Saturday morning for several years.

When you realize you're crying like a Sim (stop what you're doing, sob and brood over all that went wrong, go back to what you're doing, repeat cycle).

Have Mansions & Gardens without Apartment Life and can't find the University espresso bar? You're not the only one!
I claim whatever dubious bragging rights there are for proving this is yet another M&G-without-AL bug.

When you're friends are expecting a real baby and for some reason haven't locked down names they can agree on and so they tap you for ideas for baby names since they know you've been naming babies for 10 years on your virtual people game.

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

When you remember someone who really, REALLY pissed you off and you can relate to a sim who has a burning thought bubble of another sim. The expression and pose... so real. Also, when you can relate to a sim wanting to see another sim's ghost, drink a sim, or even have that sim be a zombie... or at least see that sim get sprayed by a skunk.

Also, over a decade ago - back when Sims 2 first came out in fact - I spent an entire year or more either in aspiration failure or chatting with my cup-stick buddy. Funfunfun XD

You've been playing Sims 2 too much when... you are delighted to find a collected volume of Shakespeare's plays on sale for a good price because it will make a great source for baby names in Veronaville.

A gentleman at my church on Sunday announced that he had a new baby great granddaughter called Meadow. I immediately thought of Meadow Thayer in Pleasantview. Well, she's the only person called Meadow that I know.

There was a Meadow in my elementary school, several grades above me. (It was a small school, around 50-120 students depending on the year.) I thought it was weird that someone would name their kid after a field.

Considering that my game has mods that strongly affect skills and relationships, when your townies achieve their LTWs without your direction.

When you don't have any graphics programs, wouldn't know where to begin with textures and morphs and things, and still go around town noticing things you want in the game that nobody else will ever make because they're distinctive to your own location. Like extensive use of tile accents and murals on exterior walls, certain types of columns, limestone, asbestos shingle siding, certain colors, certain textures, certain plants...

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.
