Default Happy 10th Birthday MTS!
Hi All,

Today is the 10th anniversary of the site that was once modthesims2.com and morphed into the current modthesims.info. It seems like such a long time ago now that I registered the domain and posted the first news post (on 12th May 2004, to be exact, on the then in use CMS system called e107).

Here's some interesting stats:

In the time since the sites inception, we started on Sims 2, added Sims 3 when it came out, have some stuff for Medieval, and have achieved a lot of things over the years. The sites focus has shifted somewhat over time, but thats to be expected with any large site. We plan on supporting TS4 when it comes out, and I know for one I will be sticking around for that. I look forward to seeing all of you in the days, months and years to come!

Happy Birthday and thank you to all of you who have stuck around for most of those 10 years! Some of our awesome creators will be uploading 10th anniversary themed uploads over the next few days so stay tuned for those!

No birthday cake?

Okay, okay.... I made one (with bacon inside):



Happy 10th Birthday, Mod The Sims!

Also, thank you, Delphy, for giving us (and our creativity) a home. :-)

Apparently, I'm psychic, cuz I spent all day working on birthday decoration prototypes for my new dollhouse business.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MTS! Thank you Delphy for all the hard work you do, and HP for supporting him and us throughout the years.
