MaxoidDrea also made a mention that the Icon for your Simpage is not available yet: MaxoidDrea message

Also, the pre-order item from Walmart, the design t-shirt, can now be downloaded. The kind people from Walmart always give the pre-order code away together with the link where to download it. Find these below:

Site news 10 November
About a month ago, I promised to update the chance card list. It's now finished and added to the Info Center.
In this list you can find the chance cards of all 20 careers with their choices and outcomes. And to make it even more useful, I even included Pescado's chance cards outcomes so you can make a, more or less, safe choice which option to pick.

Check it here: Chance cards

Carnival skins 11 November
For the Carnival festivities, the Official German Sims site has a Carnival Special. And included in that are 2 cool skins. To download them, just login to the site with your normal Maxis account (same as the USA site).
You can find the special here: Diesims2.de

Do you want more careers?
- Yes, I definitely want more careers!: 54%
- That would be nice yes: 23%
- I don't mind if they put more in or not: 16%

First Castaway Stories pics 13 November
It's been very quiet about about Castaway Stories. The 3rd in the SimsStories series. But the Hungarian EA site posted the first screenshots from this game:



Sims Carnival games 25 November
Almost 2 weeks without any interesting news! That has never happened in the history of this site. It did gave me time to work on some cool site additions. There will be a rating system for expansionpacks, a different poll system (where you can give comments) and several other things. Now on to the latest news:

The Sims Carnival
Simtimes.de found some interesting info about a new range of Sims games. This range will be about carnival games. According to allgame.com it will include a shooter game called Bumperblast and a puzzle game called SnapCity
They give a releasedate of January 8 so it probably won't be too long before it will be official announced.

New poll 25 November
A new poll. This weeks question is if you will stop playing Sims 2 when Sims 3 arrives. Click here to vote: New poll.
Last poll question was if any company can make a Sims game. A devided result; 1 out of 3 think that any company can make a Sims game, but most people (38%) think that only Maxis can. 3435 people voted and here are the results:

Can a Sims game be made by another company?
- No, only Maxis knows how to properly make it: 38%
- Only if that other company gets lots of support from Maxis: 28%
- It will be a bit different but I think they can: 28%
- Every gamecompany can make a Sims game: 6%

Spore 26 November
Spore. The game that just keeps on getting delayed. Well I created the first Spore fansite in the world, Snooty Spore, but running two big sites simultaneously is just impossible for me. Also the complete lack of involvement from Maxis towards the Spore community has put me off. So I decided to close it.
However not everything is gone. TerraSpore.com aquired large parts of the forum. The forumposts and users are all saved. Thesims2.co.za recently created a Spore site and there you can find most of the Spore info found on SnootySpore, like screenshots and previews. Find the links below:

Maxis asks for ideas 27 November
MaxoidDrea started a thread at the Sims BBS asking several questions to the members. Like which Sims 1 object you liked most, why you like Makin'Magic and others. It's already a superlong post but you can still reply to it.
It's interesting to see which items are wanted. The Basketball hoop, spiral staircase, the chemistry set and kid's playground are mentioned a lot. Good choices. Let's hope that will be in a next expansion (or at least some of them). Check the posts below:
Which Sims1 object you like - Which object should Maxis make
What do you like about Makin'Magic - Favorite Makin'Magic object
What do you like about Superstar - Favorite Superstar object
