The Sims (Loading)

I just set up The Sims on my laptop, I have the complete collection of the first and second series (only playing the original series currently though).

I was watching the funny little loading messages scroll past and wondered where I could find a list, and eventually came across this; [link]

I had just been admiring that similar animation on a group avatar and had the idea for this stamp :meow:

These are just a selection of my favourite (and the shortest :XD: ) ones :aww:

The Sims Maxis

Do you have any Sims 2 expansion packs? I'm having some issues with Free Time...

Well considering that was made some time ago, I'm thinking that the list of possible things that can scroll across the loading screen was linked to on that site, but it may have been moved since and now links to the menu, my apologies that I don't check on sites to see if they keep their pages up :giggle:

Da'awww, brought a tear to my eye XD

I'm putting this in my favorites ^^; (I miss my Sims games, for some reason my computer can't play them anymore, and my sister has the Sims 3 games and she won't let me play them, but I like Sims 1 and 2 better than 3 anyway >_< )

I played Sims 3 for a while, I liked it for a while, and there are still some parts that I like about Sims 3.

But overall I like Sims 1 and 2 better :3

Really? Ah, man, that sucks >_<

Ohhh, I used to crave playing Sims 1, never had a computer that could play it well and I looooved hearing the music because it meant I'd visited a place where it would work finally XD

It's pretty amusing to run it now a-days on a computer, and have it run smoothly, and then to remember the computer you used to play it on (in my case :3) had like... 1/500th the speed of your current computer.

And the new Sims music is annoying.
I only liked the stuff from the Sims 1 :D

No, none of my works of any kind are for any use off site, or to be re-uploaded anywhere even within dA, the only use is within dA via thumbcodes.

Glad you liked it though :aww:

I checked the stamp and where it is displayed your page and it looks just fine for me? On both pages? It could be a browser or internet issue

It did not display for several minutes, neither on my profile page or on the deviation page. I tried reloading and clearing the browser cache, but that did not help, so I wondered if the problem may lie within the stamp? Then it suddenly worked again. So it was probably just me ^^;
Thanks for your concern though :hug: Enjoy your Llama! :iconllamajumpplz:

"Disgruntling employees"? "Shampooing dirty rugs"? Too funny :XD: I've only been playing the sims 3, but from that game, I like the loading texts "Ascending Maslow's Hierarchy" & "Unloading loading screens" :rofl:

Hmm... did you install some of the latest updates on 3? What about having downloaded additional stuff for the sims3 like furniture? My game kept crashing sometime ago and I couldn't figure it out. Turns out I had downloaded a toy doll for the game and the doll was acting glitchy, attaching itself to the game and refusing to be deleted. I wasn't alone on this; a whole bunch of peeps had this problem. The game developers fixed the problem finally so all is well :aww:

This stamp brings back memories from The Sims 1. Back in high school, I would play that all the time. I have Sims 3 now.

Yeah, that was back when I was in school and I had more time for these things >w< 1 is good unless you add too many packs and then stuff goes a bit crazy, and 2 is good with a few packs so long as you have a strong enough computer :meow:
