12th January 2011: Latest Update

Posted by Sim-Wolf on January 12, 2011 at 11:54 AM Comments comments (0)

So, first of all, Happy New Year.

 

I wanted to make a proper announcement (again) even if it's months late.

 

I did originally cease updates to the site, then initiated them again a few months down the line. However, The Sims 3 still didn't run properly on my computer, and I lost interest, especially after getting my PS3 before the Summer.


I then stopped updating again and didn't feel the need to post again saying I wouldn't be updating, even though I probably should have.


Good news is I got a new EVGA 450 GTS graphics card, WOOP! Which runs The Sims 3 perfectly. Almost perfectly smooth gameplay, no lag or anything. Pity I hadn't got it two years ago when The Sims 3 came out, or I would never have lost interest and still be a die-hard Sims fan. However, that's not that case, and doing my Highers at school means I'm even more busy with the workload. So no time to get back into my Sims addiciton. Maybe the Summer holidays, eh?

 

I don't know what I'm going to do in the future with this site. Whether I start updating if I get the time and get my addiction back, or whether I might decide to start a new site sometime down the line or whether I just move on. (I'm guessing it will be the latter. =\)

 

I know there was a lot of unfinished business on this site. I had a few things I was working on like Sim-Wolf Downloads, which will probably never be fixed, and it will just be the images and broken links of what I made and was planning to upload. x[ But I guess that's just the way things are.

 

I wish things were different... but they're not.


I might update once in a while (I do still check back from time to time), but as for now, au revoir.


Free "Honeycomb Bookshelf" Object from The Sims 3 Store

A new bookshelf object has been added to The Sims 3 Store which you can download for free.


Honeycomb Bookshelf

Be busy as a bee in soaking up these great books. It adds a sweet flair to every room as well.


Also freewebs has mucked up again. I'm having the same problem I was having a few days ago. I'm starting to think it might be time to find a new host due to the amount of downtime freewebs has.

The Sims 3 on Consoles Trailer

Posted by Sim-Wolf on June 7, 2010 at 4:36 PM Comments comments (0)

The first official trailer for The Sims 3 on Consoles has been released. The trailer is for The Sims 3 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and you have to admit, the graphics and overall gameplay looks exactly like that on the PC, something both The Sims 1 and 2 on Consoles were unable to achieve.


Watch the trailer on MTV or YouTube.

June 2010 Sets at The Sims 3 Store

Posted by Sim-Wolf on June 7, 2010 at 1:07 PM Comments comments (0)

First of all, sorry for the lack of updates in the last few days. Freewebs wasn't working properly for me, so I decided to wait until they fixed it, which they have now done.


Anyway, four new sets have been released at The Sims 3 Store this month, one of which is free. In my opinion the free set isn't really worth installing unless you're a real football fan because although each shirt is the same, except with a different flag on it, they appear as seperate shirts in Create-A-Sim which will really clog up the rows of clothes.


An extra set was released for players who register their copy of The Sims 3: Ambitions, called "The Ultimate Career Bundle". However, for a gift to those who buy the game, I think it is of pretty bad quality.

The Sims 3 Ambitions Released

Posted by Sim-Wolf on June 5, 2010 at 9:31 AM Comments comments (0)

A day late, due to the fact freewebs is totally mucked up just now, and I was waiting till the site started working properly again, but it's taking too long, so I'm going to go ahead and post just now.


The Sims 3 Ambitions was released in the UK yesterday. The RRP is £24.99, though it's pretty easy to find it elsewhere for as low as £17.99.



The Sims 3: After Dark Rumour

Posted by Sim-Wolf on June 3, 2010 at 9:36 AM Comments comments (0)

Members from The Sims 3 and EA forums have stated that when pre-ordering Ambitions from GAME, they were asked if they would like to pre-order The Sims 3: After Dark as well. Originally it was listed with a release date of 4th of June (the same date as Ambitions), but a member of The Sims 3 Forums called up to find out about the game, and was told it was listed down with a release date of 1st November.


Now, although it is a rumour, the November 1st release date is highly creditable as World Adventures was released in November last year, and Expansion Packs are released more or less every half year with a couple of weeks difference give or take. The title "After Dark" highly compares to the title of the second expansion pack for The Sims 2, "Nightlife", which dealt with activities Sims could do in the night (and therefore after dark), such as Nightclubs, Restuarants, Bowling, Vampires, etc. And given the popularity of both Nightlife for The Sims 2 and Hot Date for The Sims, it is very likely we might see a remake of these expansions for The Sims 3, as if you think about it, we actually don't have a dating system/game in The Sims 3 (like we did in Nightlife), or activities such as restaurants, nightclubs, bowling, etc. which were included in Nightlife, and some in Hot Date. Also, both the Sims 1 and Sims 2's version of the Expansion Pack, were both one of the earlier expansion packs released for their game, so After Dark, if true, would be following suit.


Yes, it's still a rumour, but I think it's a creditable one at that, and one which could possibly turn out to be the next Expansion Pack.

New Screenshots and Renders for Ambitions

Posted by Sim-Wolf on June 3, 2010 at 9:29 AM Comments comments (0)

As many of you will know, The Sims 3 Ambitions has already been released in the US and some other countries. (It will be released in the UK tommorow!). However, some new screenshots and renders for the game have shown up recently. It beats me why all the renders seem to have coloured backgrounds now, but here they are anyway.



Announcement: 1st June 2010

Posted by Sim-Wolf on May 31, 2010 at 8:53 PM Comments comments (0)

Long time, no see, huh? After my last announcement, in which I stated I was ceasing updates to the site for the near future, you may have noticed I did in fact update once the news once or twice in April. However, like I said... I've been extremely busy what with my exams and all (which have just finished), but more so with all the emotional stress I've been under with everything which has happened in my life recently, something which I'll never fully get over.


However, I've decided I don't want to see my site crumble like many others, even if it still is a pretty small based site. I have been feeling like I am not allowed to update my site, which is silly, because if I want to update it, then I should, regardless of what announcements I've made. However, it's obviously coming up for the Summer holidays (during which I'll have loads of spare time to update the site), but after which I'll be even more busy with school work during my last two years of high school (before heading to University (eek!) - likely studying Games Design. So yeah, it's fair to say I will never truly have as much spare time to update the site as I have had in the last three years where level school work is nothing compared to higher years, gah.


Yes, I know I've missed the whole lead up to the release of Ambitions, but on a positive note, with some adjustments to the settings (and figuring out a way to install all The Sims 3 Store content - *winks*), I've found my enthusiasm for The Sims 3 quickly build as I've nearly got my neighbourhood up to scratch with all my own Sims which I'm going to enable story progression for soon. Ahh, the excitment.


I've updated the Ambitions page with new screenshots and videos which were released during my absence from the site, as well as the Coming Soon page to show the release dates for Ambitions and console versions of The Sims 3. It would be pointless making a huge news post with abousolutely everything I've missed, as I'm guessing you've all followed other fansites for news just now, so I'm sure you know more than me about the game.


So my plan of action? To start off, and make things easy for myself (especially during busy times) I will try to make sure I update the site at least once a week, obviously with more updates during holidays. I still need to give Sim-Wolf Downloads a huge update, because it's still not completed development since The Sims 3's release, so I'll upload the rest of the clothes recolours I made months back, as well as some pretty decent houses, if I say so myself, which I've made.


I was also thinking about the possibility of changing the name of the site, and reorganising the content? What do you think? To be honest, anyone who comes over the name "Sim-Wolf" I'm guessing will not find it that attractive. It doesn't have any meaning really. I have come up with a few ideas for new site names, but I'm not sure if it's the way to go yet. Only time will tell...


Alright, bye for now. =]
