15th Anniversary: Fun Facts about The Sims

The Sims

In February 2015, The Sims was celebrating 15 years of plumbobs, WooHoo and other fan stuff. If you are following @TheSims on Twitter or The Sims page on Facebook, you must have seen a good deal of Fun Facts posts and learned a bunch of cool stories about the history of The Sims. Here below just a few:

  • The first item ever created in The Sims? A toilet.
  • Simoleons? They got their name from the 18th century British slang for sixpence: simons.
  • Definition of the plumbob? ""A plumb-bob or a plummet is a weight, usually with a pointed tip on the bottom, that is suspended from a string and used as a vertical reference line, or plumb-line. It is essentially the vertical equivalent of a "water level"".
  • In The Sims, you could have a baby as a result of kissing someone.
  • In The Sims, Claire the Bear was an actual bear that would steal from your picnic basket or dig in your trash.

About Sims Transfer

I will upload all my creations here. That means uploading +/-3.500 files... and many, many more images. It will take quite some time... I will give priority to The Sims 4 meshes and The Sims 4 downloads in general. The Sims 2 downloads will follow, then The Sims 1 (because they are just a few). Anything else will follow in whatever order I see more convenient. As for News, Screenshots and Tutorials, the priority will be to add fresh content. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

- All Sims4 and Sims1 creations are now uploaded.

- All Sims3 creations are now uploaded.
