11 out of 10...Is it really that good? takes a moment to stare at avatar. HELL YA!
Ok, in actuallity it ranks 9.8 according to the latest stats. But common, can you get more perfect? This game has everything. Excitement, humor--and its replay is unmatched. Not only is it still fun, but its actually 2 games (Sorry, no spoilers). The original Maniac Manion can be played too, if you dont mind the EGA graphics--memo to young gamers: EGA predates VGA...Did I mention it was my avatar? :p
I could go out on and on about this game, but i'd rather play it. Before I do though, I thank all of you for your comments. And yes I take requests (Please post them in mailbox here on the MTS2) and will try try to finish them ASAP. But I have given up on meshing for the time being. Please ask a more Experienced Simmer for meshes.

--Thanks again to Yangn for his tiredeye package which is included in his Really Sigusting Zombies skin available on the MTS2 at

I thought it was a hentai game ^__^, you know "maniac", "tentacle".
I never played this game before, but judging from the rank it must be a good one. thanks

I LOVE DoTT. It's one of my favorite games of all time. Thanks so much for making these Sims-- I have a feeling there will be a Manic Mansion in Strangetown sometime in the near future.

Strange, I thought I replied in here before. Thanks so much for these but I have a suggestion for people....if you want you can download a better hair for Laverne (she had/has crazy hair in the game not smooth or whatever like the hair featured in the pics....) just go to peggysims 2 site and look through the free hair files for be specific it's Free - ID: #005054 (should be first hair on page 17 of hair meshes and starting from page 132 under free female "hairs" hopefully you'll guys will easily figure out and get the right ones and I hope that this information helped...tried to help you understand which hair I'm talking about...) Anyway, I'm pretty sure that that hair at peggysims is very close to game Laverne's hair so if you want to "complete" your Laverne to look as much like her as possible you should get that hair and remember she is a teen so unless you want to see her older or younger make her a teen. That's just my opinion/suggestion though. Oh, and I think she had really pale skin but I don't remember for certain...

You did a good job on these sims. You should make the characters from the first Maniac Mansion next.

An error has occurred. Unimplemented trap.
