The 20th anniversary of the sims has been a little bit controversial. People expressed their disappointment about the infamous hot tub on forums and on social media. Even the people who stated they did not expect anything special frowned upon that so-called gift. Whether EA / Maxis welcomes it or not, the vocal community of the sims is the best part of this franchise. Such passion, such resolve, such dedication must be rewarded. And it must be rewarded with something greater than a hot tub, as the community stated very clearly.
For this reason, I decided that maybe we should celebrate those who keep rewarding us with their creations without getting paid for it.
I want to thank all modders and CC creators on behalf of the community, for putting so much hard work and effort into enhancing our gameplay experience for two decades by now.
You deserve all the gratitude and praise in the world! I would love to shout out some of them like,
- Scumbumbo (RIP), who passed away as I drafted this article, for creating so many mods not only for players but also for mod-makers,
- Deaderpool, for MCCC and for the most helpful discord community I have ever been to,
- KawaiiStacie, for Slice of Life and many other family-gameplay mods,
- roBurky, for Meaningful Stories and teaching our sims how to control their emotions,
- LittleMsSam, for numerous mods big and small that fixes many annoyances,
- TurboDriver, for the personality and attraction systems of Wicked Whims Mod,
- Peacemaker, SaurusSims, LuumiaSims, SynthSims, Wistful Castle, IllogicalSims, MLys, PlumbobTeaSociety, FelixandreSims, Darte77, Gorillax3, MMSims, Xmiramira, Ebonix & all other amazing CC creators for their stunning content whether it be clothing, hair or furniture,
- Nraas, for introducing so many gameplay mods like better story progression to the Sims 3 to enhance our experience,
- Numenor, for the sims 2 mods like color enabler package, any game starter and many more,
- Pescado, for creating many ‘AwesomeMod’s and founding the PMBD, which was a bold move in favor of the community back in days,
- Eric, for creating the infamous InSIMenator for the sims 2 back in days when we did not have so many alternatives, and of course for the insimenator forums’ drama,
- Warlokk, Marvine & BeosBoxBoy (RIP), for creating custom body meshes for the sims 2 when we didn’t have diverse body shapes and sliders,
- All websites like ModtheSims and TheSimsResource, for giving modders and CC creators a place to upload their work,
- And of course, all bloggers like Lana CC Finds and MaxisMatchCCWorld, for reporting and collecting mods and custom content in a user-friendly manner,
Thank you all!
You all are amazing and we are forever in your debt! Not all heroes wear capes after all :)
