Will-Wright.com 25 April
Today, Snooty Sims is 2 years old. And to celebrate that fact, I can finally show my 'big project' that I have been working on for the past months.
It's a fansite about Will Wright. Without him, Snooty Sims would never have existed so I decided to make a Will Wright Fansite. On that site you can find pictures, interviews, his hobby's, a history and much more.
I used the SnootySims template so it will look somewhat similar to this site, but I changed quite alot about it to give it its own look. It is unfortunately not completely ready yet, like the history part and the guestbook, but I just didn't want to wait anymore.
Go check out this new site here:
