Luc's mail 10 April
Lucy's weekly mail arrived and it's about the athletic career track:

In The Sims 2, you can keep your Sims fit and svelte by making them a career athlete. Dress them up in track-suits or leggings, and send them for a run, or have them pay a visit to the gym, and work out some aggression on the punching bag.
Whether the goal is a shapely silhouette for that itsy-bitsy summer bikini your Sim has her eye on, or that flash new sports car you plan on buying with your career earnings, Sim athleticism is one of many ways you can achieve greatness in The Sims 2.

Site news 25 April
How time flies.... This week, this site, together with the old site, can celebrate its 1st. year anniversary!
Being just the 2nd Sims 2 site online (the honour for being the 1st goes to The Sims 2 Center) it certainly grew bigger than my expectations. Last week it passed 250.000 (unique) visitors.

Nothing more to say than saying thanks to all the visitors and especially SimsExtremos.com for the layout and the 2 mods 'MikeInside' and 'Juniper Jade' for the help in the forums.
Yesterday I added a facts list about some of the adult things in the game and currently I'm working on the newsarchive which currently goes back from December 21st.
