Real life simmers

A wikia contributor has created a page called Curtis Paradis About a real life simmer. I have told them and it is just saying about he is a good simmer on the actual page.

Welcome To The World Of The Sims Wiki! (talk) 09:26, October 6, 2012 (UTC)


Good morning,

How are you?

If you read the manuals of some stuff packs, you'll see that they describe various styles.

In the Fast Lane, we have 4 styles. Outdoor Living brings 2 styles.

Not to mention the Goth Style, presented by The Sims 2: Teen Style Stuff (which even has its own page).

My idea would be to present all styles of The Sims, and I see great content that will be lost because it is not listed on other pages. I see a page with great potential, not only completed because I had no time. I wonder clearer rules about deletion, lest they incur it again.

Can I create the page again? Put various content I see in the manuals of these 2 stuff packs listed.

Thank you in advance.

Danielmorine (talk) 12:01, October 7, 2012 (UTC)

but we can not have a page where are all these styles (or whatever better name)? Like a list, with pictures, and so on ...

Danielmorine (talk) 11:21, October 8, 2012 (UTC)

Anyway, I do not know how to work the other Wikia. But at least in wikipedia, the rules for deletion are clearer, at least I do not know where to find them in this wikia. In the wiki, at least in that I had contact, things are decided by vote and what is decided arbitrarily has been defined previously. I'm not demanding anything, just wanted to have more access rules, not to happen again what happened ...

Danielmorine (talk) 00:46, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

OK. We are beginning to understand us. Lol.

I, unlike you, I think there may be some rather interesting content for that page. I may not have chosen the most appropriate word, but I saw some possibility of content yes. If you can recreate the page, I'd appreciate it.

I asked about policy deletion because I've had some contact with other wikis, I've been administrator in Portuguese wiki (I'm Brazilian so I speak English poorly. Lol), and usually do not see deletions happen so summarily, unless the content were totally irrelevant, which I think is not the case.

Anyway, we got an agreement

Thanks for understanding. (talk) 17:11, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Merge with this page may be a better way?

Danielmorine (talk) 20:51, October 9, 2012 (UTC)

Okay Subject closed. Thanks.

Can you tell me the rules for uploading images? I'm having permission error.

Although I have already uploaded images before. But wikia is saying permission error, and I do know what to do

Danielmorine (talk) 19:59, October 10, 2012 (UTC)



I received an e-mail that you have edited and cleaned the Supernatural/Werewolf page. My contribution to it (the "werewolf glitch") - I have edited it, but I just don't know how to link it to the discussion at The Sims 3 Forum. Sorry about that.

As far as I can tell, it is official, per SimsVIP. Dharden (talk) 13:12, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hmm.... you're right, it could be merged into the main article for TS3: Seasons, at least for the time being. Dharden (talk) 13:31, October 10, 2012 (UTC)
Replace the article with a redirect, so there'll be a placeholder when it's time to give this item a separate article. Dharden (talk) 13:37, October 10, 2012 (UTC)

Hello Nikel23 Im jondo 123 im new i just joined wikia can you tell me some tips or tutorial about Editing? Please? Thank you.


Well, they can be found in Family Bin and the first time I moved them in a house they had those wishes, but I reinstalled the game and when I moved them in a house they had completely different wishes. It means that they actually don't have a particular wish; it's chosen randomly. Life just wouldn't be the same without the Sims! Talk 11:13, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

Abandoned "fanons"

A recent crisis has come about in the wiki. Fanons popping up everywhere. Seldom do half of them do well at all. Many consist of a infobox, a sentence and maybe a picture or two. Nothing exceptional. Then, the fanons are simply tagged as abandoned or complete. These tags protect these "fanons" from ever being tagged as stubs or clean ups and allow them cloud up and clott the wiki with twenty more useless fanons every month. Is there a rule perhaps that could allow us to add a stub tag or otherwise delete the fanon, despite being abandoned or "complete"?

Freedomtalk 14:46, November 17, 2012 (UTC)

No problem.Hopefully this can be corrected. Freedomtalk 14:43, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

Hi,Nikel. I just wanna say something about this user. I already warn him in this page. Then, I warn him again in his usertalk. But, I saw 3 hours ago, that he's change some of his fanon pages but he didn't change anything in his fanon which not follow the manual of style. Just say.

Supernatural Templates?

Hey Nikel, I was just wondering something: you know how there are the templates listing all of the vampires on the bottom of the pages like Elvira Slayer and Count Snypes? Should we add those kinds of templates to all of the Supernaturals? As in, should we (or are we) putting those kinds of templates on pages like Dahlia Goodfellow, Doreen Caliente, Erik Darling, and Pappy Wolff? Thanks in advance, Nikel. Salazzle.pngPGR7 (parler - entendre) 17:03, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

I think deleting it probably is the best option. I guess the template isn't really necessary anymore, and after all curious users can find out what life state a sim is by coming on TSW and looking it up. I assumed that, since the vampire template had grown dramatically because it included all of the vampires from Supernatural and earlier, we were going to include templates like this for Werewolves, Fairies, Ghosts, etc. But it really is unnecessary, so go ahead and delete it. Thanks! Salazzle.pngPGR7 (parler - entendre) 12:30, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
Aww, don't worry about it. It's not something urgent, so take your time. :) Salazzle.pngPGR7 (parler - entendre) 01:43, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Funke Siblings

I'm not sure, I honestly only added that because that was what the description on the page said!

I'll jump on TS3 right now and have a look. ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 05:44, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Alright, so I've had a look. They do not have any bios, none of the family do. However, they do have the same number of days until ageing up, which is 4.
I opened a new save to see if the same thing happened, and once again, the same number of days until ageing up for each family member were the same.
I think this can conclude that the information about being the less-favored of the two siblings is wrong, but having the same number of days until ageing up might prove that they are twins. ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 06:10, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
That's fair enough. There is no real proof that they are siblings; it's merely a coincidence. ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 07:27, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
Oh god, yes! Sorry, I did mean twins. Of course they're siblings, but we don't know if they're twins! :D ~ Waikikamukow (Anyone wanna chat?) 08:20, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nikel :) I think, we need a picture/clip art of a Bathtub from Supernatural. I forgot what's the name :/ but, can you teach me how to got a picture like this --> Dini (Let's talk!) 12:33, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

New expansion pack

Did you hear? University Life may be the next expansion pack. The Sims 3 Indonesia has leaked it, and there are already some photos. Official confirmation will be on the broadcast on 8th of January, along with some other announcements. Btw, do you like Seasons? Vss2eiptalk here 22:04, December 21, 2012 (UTC)

I really liked the trailer for Seasons. I like the game itself, but it can get repetitive, so... University Life seems nice, though why couldn't it be called College Life. They're taking Sims 2 titles.

PS: I remember you having a template for your favourite EPs. Could I please borrow it? Vss2eiptalk here 12:01, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

University Life seems fun. I believe you once had a list of your favourite Sims 2 EPs on your user page ranging from the best to the worst. I was asking if I could use it. Vss2eiptalk here 12:20, December 25, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for letting me use it, although strangely it won't appear properly. Vss2eiptalk here 18:12, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Hello there. This message is to request that you give input on this very important thread regarding notability and what constitutes as being notable on The Sims Wiki. You have received this message as you are statistically one of the most active users on The Sims Wiki and your thoughts on this subject would be much appreciated. Thanks!

If you have any questions, please direct them to my owner.


The original {{Simbio2}} won't let you put any college related stuff in their template (well it just won't show up), and if I use the {{Unisim}} template the career(level) or school(grades) won't show up. I didn't think it was appropiate changing one of these templates to make that work, so I created a new one. Also because I didn't think anyone would really need the template besides me. (not many fanon Sims go to college I guess?)

If it doesn't make sense you can always delete it, I just thought it was easier/better to do it like this rather dan putting extra templates on the page or something.

Tiezel (talk) 13:45, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Makes sense to me, now that I've looked at it. The Simbio templates were created with pre-made Sims in mind. Since University didn't add pre-made adults (except maybe some NPCs), no pre-made adults or elders in The Sims 2 will have gone to college, so there wouldn't be any reason for {{Simbio2}} to have a space for college related info. Dharden (talk) 14:06, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah go ahead and do whatever you want, glad I could help pointing this out (: Tiezel (talk) 14:07, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

I think that {{Sim2}} should cover up all parameters that are used in the series including the EPs, so there's no need to make another infobox, even if most Sims don't really use them. This is evidenced that the template includes social optional parameter for social class even though it's only used by AL townies. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:41, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

I was also wondering why there was a {{Sim2}} and a {{Simbio2}}. Aren't they almost the same as well? Tiezel (talk) 10:58, December 26, 2012 (UTC)

Adding The Sims 2 Music

I was wondering, can music from The Sims 2 (from neighbourhoods, Buy&Build Mode, radio stations...) be added on the wiki? Is there a special page which has the soundtracks? If someone has already uploaded the soundtracks, please ignore this message. Thanks. Vss2eiptalk here 21:45, December 27, 2012 (UTC)

I see there's no page with The Sims 2 music, so I might upload something and try to make a page. Vss2eiptalk here 14:44, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I haven't thought about that. :( Should I cut songs to about 10 seconds (how will I do that?)? Vss2eiptalk here 17:01, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
Do they have to be an .ogg file? I was thinking .mp3... Vss2eiptalk here 17:13, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
I think I know how to do it but I have to install editors and converters... I don't really feel like doing it now. Maybe some other time? Vss2eiptalk here 17:35, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
I created a page with the list of songs but it turns out there are a tons of songs in The Sims 2, so it may take a while for me to complete the page (please don't mind). And because there are tons of songs, there are many tracks to add and I don't think I can create them for every single song. I'm actually sure if I can create them at all! Maybe I should just create a list and delete the Preview column? Vss2eiptalk here 22:09, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

Family Limit

Hi there Nikel! You sure seem helpful and knowledgeable! I am having some trouble and I thought you might know how to resolve it since I tried to use the help forum but I'm really not sure that's taken the sumission I sent.

I have 2 adult sims and 5 young sims (their children) on one lot and they both wish ti have another child. I'm down with that, the game does not seem to be down with that. :(  It is telling me that the female's "household has too many sims for her to become pregnant right now." This is confusing since I've been googling the topic tonight and everyone else seems to think that the cut off is 8 sims to a lot. I have seven and it isn't allowing me to bring another into the home. Is this something I've messed up, or is there some unfortunate glitch I need to fix, or has the game just changed since the entries I've found.

What do you suppose I should do? If you don't know then where do you think I could find out? I'd really rather not play until I sort this out.  Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

SSA Amy (talk) 08:36, December 28, 2012 (UTC)Amy

Thanks Nickel, you were very prompt! I hope this is the right spot to reply. I tried adding it to the end of your response at first. I'm very new at this. I don't think I've used any mods on this family, is that a cheat? I haven't used cheats in ages, not since I got the Sims on this laptop. I will try the MTS thing you suggested.

I am really not sure where to look on there actually, the community tab?

Use the neighborhood browser to find which neighborhood you found him in, then go to "sim description" and click on his name. When his profile comes up, click the blue button that says "more" and then click "open character file". Go to the sidebar on the left and scroll down until you see something that says "jpg/tga/png image". It should come up, though you may have to click in the resource list where it says "jpg/tga/png image" too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Audball2108 (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Clothing tooltips and FreeTime

With FreeTime clothing tooltips will not show unless Debug Mode is on. Other CAS tooltips show as normal, but not clothing tooltips. Dharden (talk) 15:20, January 5, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, I thought all tooltips will only show up if I use Debug Mode. :/ I might have not noticed that. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:28, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
No... CAS items can have a caption, and that's what normally shows up as a tooltip. No caption, no tooltip. With Debug Mode, everything gets the expanded tooltips, and the caption (if there is one) is part of that. FreeTime changed CAS so the normal caption tooltips don't show for clothing, but the Debug Mode tooltips still show. What's really odd is that the normal clothing tooltips still show in Body Shop.

New EPs and SPs!

I don't know if you heard this, but 3 new expansion packs and 1 new stuff pack were announced for The Sims 3. I got a brain overload, really!

The first expansion pack is the expected University Life. Those images I uploaded turned out to be real and were shown in the trailer which is amazing. I think you'll like this pack, it adds so much. Sims can even attend classes, and we can see what's going on! I'd trade it with Seasons, honestly. It's coming in early March.

The second expansion pack is the unexpected Island Paradise. Although you may think it's a remake of The Sims 3: World Adventures, I don't think it is. It's still in the early stage of development but it also adds many new features. You can even build and fully customize boats and cruises and travel around worlds. There's the new underwater mode and the mermaid occult. I've been waiting for a island theme EP since Castaway Stories (and many others) and I was totally surprised when they announced it. It's being released in June.

The third expansion pack... I don't know if it's being actually developed, but EA announced it. It enables us to go to the future, and is all about timee travel. Yes, it's Time Travel. It's coming in fall, and no further info has been released.

The first (and surprisingly only) stuff pack in 2013 is a Movie Star/Costume Pack. It revolves around iconic movie stars and costumes. I'm not really enthused about it, really.

They also announced new store and premium content, so expect new things in The Store too.

All in all, I think The Sims 3 is going in a good direction (since Pets and Supernatural) and I like these EPs much more than the first ones. It's going in a completely new direction now. One thing's for sure - this will be an ever busier Sims year - for the game and for the Wiki. I'm sorry this message is so long. Please tell me your opinion about all this. See ya! Vss2eiptalk here 20:28, January 8, 2013 (UTC)

I don't think all of them are necessarily bad. They said they're still in early development. But still, 11 expansion packs are too much, even for EA. I wouldn't be surprised if they make even more. By my opinion Seasons and Generations should have been in the base game as they offer nothing 'WOW!'. Late Night and Showtime should have been merged as they have the same theme, basically. This also goes for World Adventures and Island Paradise. Even Ambitions and Time Travel should have been merged, since Ambitions already has time machines. Vss2eiptalk here 16:18, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
Yes! And if it must be a Time Travel expansion pack, why couldn't at least be the past. I mean, everyone has their own version of the future, but the past is the past. Pyramids, middle ages and dinosaur age is better than the future. Who knows what EA will think of? I'd even settle for a Space Adventures pack rather than a Time Travel one. but, I guess it's early to tell.

PS: Oh, I forgot to mention this. I was editing the Influence page yesterday, as I wanted to add some new info for University Life, but it wouldn't accept my edit. It said it was "football spam", but nothing that I wrote was spam, just some new information. Do you know what's going on? Vss2eiptalk here 16:46, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, thank you, then! Oh, and, I feel stupid for asking this, but, what is Football spam? Vss2eiptalk here 16:56, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
I saw it in the broadcast, they just mentioned it. I suppose it plays a smaller role as Sims can just convince each other to clean, cook etc. I thought it maybe worth mentioning, so I put it in the Influence article. Vss2eiptalk here 20:44, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

Screwed up spacing on a page

I added a line on a page (Stove), tried to correct the spacing to make room for the line, and ended up moving all entries further apart. I did an edit and reverted it, and it increased the page size by 159 bytes, which shouldn't have happened. Can you please look at it and tell me what I did wrong. I'm sorry.

Copyright Question

Hi! I need an answer to an important question. You see, I created a wiki (it's a Sims Wiki in Serbian), and I didn't want to upload any images until I create a copyright template. So, I created a EA copyright template (if you don't mind, I translated the text from the template on this wiki, as I really didn't know what to write). So, I have 2 questions: is a copyright template enough for uploading Sims images AND - I know when you upload an image here, you can choose from a dropdown menu what kind of copyright and category you want for an image; how did you make that? Vss2eiptalk here 12:16, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your work on that page; it's looking good. One thing is wrong though: WA grapes. Renoit and Meloire Grapes are, I'm certain, the Common varieties. The other pairs should both be bumped up one level - Common > Uncommon and Uncommon > Rare - I think.
