I got a residence and a roommate... I don't really enjoy nonsensical lots made only for skilling or money... but there are also great ones...

But jobs, activities, minigames and music are awesome

Pictures soon

My old bed, and house exterior:




Chess lot:




Getting another roommate (now I have 2):


And ofcourse, my job (level 2):



Edit:

Realised that one of the best Sims 2 expansions came from this game... Open For Business! This game is made upon that concept, and has active careers... Way ahead it's time if you ask me.

I'm tempted to try it, but I've been burned by virtual worlds where people never stay "in character" (if that makes sense). I'm not much for grinding either. Is this the case with TSO? Can I roleplay effectively without the immersion being broken?

There is no really a character, you are who you are. It is not really a roleplaying game, as everyone is put in the same economy with the same start, and most of the personas there are basically acting as their irl counterparts... It is a living world where you don't need to act differently other than be yourself, but you can roleplay (just as in the real world, but better). And it is a bit of a grind to get skills and money, but other activities, such as making pizza, business station, casino objects, crafting, clothing stores, various businesses and jobs. Oh, did I mention there are pets in the game as well? You can have a pet store... how cute is that?!

It does sound fun. I think I might give a go.

They had a server problem, but it's resolved now... It's still a beta though.

And I'm glad you are giving it a try, it really is fun

I'm liking it so far but there seems to be too much emphasis on skilling. Like, literally every hotspot is a skilling location. I was hoping for bars, restaurants and maybe some roleplay ones like town halls, suburbs, etc. Also, are the job locations editable? The diner could really use a break room.

Am I just too used to my own play style in the offline Sims games?

To be honest I'd prefer a roleplaying environment too. I've always been into storytelling games though

Thanks, he looks a lot like his Sims 1 version.

Servers were down again...

BTW... my house has changed a lot




And I've got neighbors. I wanted my house to be the bar one day, but I guess I'll have one across the street.
