For the past couple years, I've been playing The Sims 2 on my computer. It runs VERY SLOW, so I've been frustrated with it. I have two expansion packs installed also, so maybe that's made it worse.
Anyway, this weekend, I decided to just take it off my computer, because it was so aggravating to spend all my time with that game WAITING instead of PLAYING.
So, after removing all traces of The Sims 2, I got out all my old original The Sims games. (I have every single expansion pack.)
There they were:
The Sims, Livin Large, House Party, Hot Date, Vacation, Unleashed, Superstar, and Makin Magic. Eight games, which I spent over 200 dollars on, over the years.
I installed every single one of them, and was reading the back of the box for "Makin Magic". I realized that I had never once played it! The Sims 2 came out the same year as "Makin Magic", so I probably just skipped it, and went straight to the new game.
After installing all the games, I was excited to play them. It's like a family reunion, or something! So cool to hear the old music, and see the old neighborhood, and watch the Sims being themselves.
Then, I was building a house, and buying stuff to place in the house. AND I FOUND A SPINNING WHEEL!!!!
My jaw dropped open, and I sat up straight in my seat. Unbelievable! I've had a Sims spinning wheel in my house all this time!
So, of course, that's one of the first things I put in the house. I also got a butter churn, and a wine vat (for stomping grapes). So fun!
I watched my little Sim working at the spinning wheel, and it looks right!
I think I'm gonna build a castle, and fill it with fairy tale looking characters, all sitting and spinning together by the fireplace.
