"I have spent many sleepless nights playing at the computer "The Sims". My mother thinks I'm crazy when I talk about energy bar, and I sometimes simply forget to eat. I'd play it everyday as long as I could. I love creating my own character and build houses. I wont stop playing until I got sleepy. I was too lazy when I started playing The Sims."
Since the Sims was released thousands of people have fallen in love with the game...Creation of Families
When starting the game offers pre-made characters as well as the option to create more Sims that they control. Creating a Sim consists of creating a family that can hold up to 8 members. A Sims body is bundled with a specific body physique and clothing. The player cannot change a Sims face, name, skin tone or personality once it has been moved onto a lot.
In the Sims there are only 3 states, baby, child and adult. The only life stage that can be passed is baby. Children cannot grow up unless cheats expansion packs are used. Adults are the most advanced life stage and are able to have children, get jobs, etc.
Sims are directed on the basis of instructing them to interact with objects, such as a television set, a piece of furniture or another Sim. Sims may receive house guests, which are actually based on the Sims of other game files. The player cannot control "visiting" Sims, although it is important for Sims to interact with one another in order to develop a healthy social life and gain popularity. The player must make decisions about time spent in personal development, such as exercise, reading, creativity, and logic, by adding activities to the daily agenda of the Sims. Daily need fulfillment must also be scheduled, such as personal hygiene, eating, and sleeping. If the simulated humans do not perform need fulfillment, they suffer consequences. For example, if they do not eat, they will die of starvation. If they do not go to the bathroom, they will wet themselves. If they do not have fun, they become depressed and unwilling to do things. When Sims have low motives they are more likely to be nasty to other Sim characters by insulting them, slapping them and even attacking them.
