The Sims Project Rene

An update on Project Rene

We are back with new updates on Project Rene! Over the years, you’ve seen us introduce many versions of Sims experiences from The Sims to The Sims Online, The Sims Castaway, The Sims Medieval, The Urbz to today’s The Sims FreePlay and The Sims 4. We are always looking for ways to bring The Sims to more players while keeping our charming characters and creations at the heart of what we make. When we think about any Sims game, it has to start with the core experience. What must we preserve for this to be a Sims game AND what can we do in this game that we couldn’t do before?
Project Rene will be a new way to play The Sims - it will feel “Simsy” as players will still manage what their Sims do throughout their day, while also presenting gameplay choices differently. With Project Rene, we want to do things from the start that The Sims hasn’t ever done or try to do familiar things in a new way! Here is an overview of the Project Rene news updates mentioned during Behind The Sims Episode 3.

Project Rene will Coexist With Other Sims Games

Project Rene and The Sims 4 will exist side by side. We will continue to support both at the same time and will plan to bring more exciting content to The Sims 4 community for the foreseeable future.

Project Rene Will Be Free to Download When It’s Ready

Project Rene will be Free to Download. This means that when Project Rene is ready and fully open to players, you will be able to join, play and explore it without a subscription, core game purchase or energy mechanics. We want playing to be super easy for you to invite or join friends and experience new features, stories and challenges.

Project Rene Will Grow Over Time

We want Project Rene to be strong and cohesive from the start. While it won’t begin with everything you have in The Sims 4, we plan to add new experiences and content to Project Rene over time.
Beyond regular updates to the core game, we will sell content and packs, but we plan to change this up a bit. For example, basic weather may be added to the core game for free, for everybody. And in the future, a pack for purchase may be focused on winter sports with activities like ice dancing or a snowman building competition. It’s important that with Project Rene we lower barriers to play and give all players the broadest shared systems because that feels like the strongest foundation for us to grow from.

A New Way of Development

We’re bringing everyone along with us every step of the way for Project Rene. We want to include Simmers throughout the various phases of development, which could include everything from closed invites to small public playtests or early access options.
We are still in the early stages of development for Project Rene, but we are excited to keep sharing the details of our progress with you!

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.
- Transfer of Sims2 creations is in progress.
