Coming Soon: The Sims 1! Taking character requests.

After the fun I had with The Sims Medieval, I decided to dig still further back into the series’ past to revisit an old favourite of mine, The Sims 1.


The base game doesn’t really have a theme; it’s just about keeping your sims happy as they make friends and progress up through their career paths. Because of this, I’ve been a bit stuck about the kinds of sims I’d like to make, so I’ve decided to invite the people who comment here design one each.

I think I’d like to play four sims over two households – maybe a couple and two roommates – but I’m going to leave their looks and personality up to you!

If you’d like to give me ideas for one of my sims, please let me know how you imagine their:

  • Gender (male or female)
  • Skin colour (light, medium, or dark);
  • Hair colour;
  • Name;
  • Personality – you can either give me a general description, or actually allocate their personality points (you get twenty-five points to distribute between five qualities: nice, neat, outgoing, active, and, playful);
  • Anything else you’d like me to try to work into creating or playing them.
