After several critics regarding Palace II’s lack of elegance, and Palace I’s messy house floor plan, too few rooms, non-rectangular rooms and bad interior design, I decided in April 2013 to build a new The Sims model of Trianon Palace from Floresti, Romania, built by Cantacuzino Family in 1910. I broke my personal record of the most expensive house in The Sims 2. I have playtested it and modified it twice in May and for third time in July, before publishing on my website, to be sure that will be awesome.

It feature a very efficient floor plan with two big rooms living and dining 7×6 squares, three bedrooms 4×4 squares, two bathrooms 4×2 an 3×2 squares, each room having 2 doors to other rooms to prevent sims getting stuck.
The Sims 2 base game comes with 3 pre-made neighborhoods, with all expansion installed will be 6 pre-made neighborhoods, plus 8 pre-made sub-neighborhoods which can be linked to each neighborhood separately and visited (3 university campuses, 1 downtown, 1 shopping district, 3 vacation destinations).

I built in The Sims 2 the famous house of Kevin McCallister from favorite movies: Home Alone 1 & 2, in September 2012, after I got its location and floor plan (671 Lincoln Street, Winnetka, Illinois, a 2-story house plus attic and basement, 4250 square feet, built in 1921). A luxury property for families up to 8 sims, decorated including the rear garage and minivan seen in movie, but it resulted a messy floor plan.
My journal in Sims began in 2003 when I received original The Sims game from a friend. I did not enjoyed it much. In 2004 I connected to neighborhood LAN and later to internet and was able to download The Sims 2, but low-specs computer did not allowed me to play it properly. I started playing The Sims 2 in mid-2005 when my dad bought a more powerful video card, and it became my favorite game. Read whole story…
I compiled in Excel a table with all lots from every neighborhood of The Sims 1: Neighborhood 1, Neightborhood 2, Downtown, Vacation Island, Old Town, Studio Town, Magic Town. Total 7 neighborhoods and 88 lots. Lot size, price, house / family name.
When I initially wrote this review, I wrote based on other people reviews, because did not had the change to get the game for free download and make it working. I am NOT going to pay even $1 for such bad game, I wanted to get it for free, play few hours to review it, then delete, because I cannot play it anyway, I have grown up, becoming an adult and a busy businessman so I no longer have time for gaming. I am sorry for all kids who wasted $60 for this piece of shit.

Let’s hope that The Sims 5 that will come out in 2021 will save EA Games from the shame of The Sims 4.
I designed and built too many houses in The Sims 2 & 3, some people ask me “please give me a 3-bedroom home” or “which sims homes have 4 bedrooms?” So made this table to sort things out!
This is a The Sims 2 replica of the castle located in Săvârşin vilage in Romania, built in 17th century. I designed it in The Sims 2 in September 2018, featuring 4 bedrooms for families up to 8 sims, 4 bathrooms, living room, dining room with 12 seats, 3 TVs, 2 pianos, 2 desks with computers, 2 empty desks, etc.
After playing all remaining expansions of The Sims 2 during 2012, I decided to try The Sims 3 in January 2013. The Sims 3 have a lot of advantages and disadvantages compared with The Sims 2, depending by each person tastes, each one can be better than other one. Personally I think that The Sims 2 is still the best! If when The Sims 2 appeared it made me to stop playing The Sims 1, this did not happened when The Sims 3 appeared.

Inspired from Egypt pyramids or Luxor Hotel from Las Vegas, this The Sims house is shaped like a pyramid and feature 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, so it can be home for families up to 8 Sims. Made in October 2018, this is the first house designed by me where I decorated interior in stone and bricks, instead of wood and carpet seen in most of my houses. The interior receive daylight via windows even if the windows are not visible from outside, because are under roof.
In February 2008 I started to built a third The Sims 2 urban town, this time by using University Expansion Pack. I downloaded few user-made maps and choose to use StarlingSprings map because is a medium-sized, flat neighborhood, with dense and regulated street network, plus a river that split the map in two asymmetric zones (the map can be downloaded from modthesims.info or gethanesims.prismbaby.com).

After playing The Sims 1 around 2003-2005 and never enjoying it like other games such as racing and strategy, I got The Sims 2 in 2005, and it became instantly my favorite game. The Sims 2 was launched on September 14, 2004. A port to Mac OS X was released on June 17, 2005. Eight expansion packs and nine stuff packs were subsequently released.

The Sims 1 was launched on January 31, 2000. It is a crappy game by modern standards, but it is innovative, being the first game of The Sims series, and if it didn’t existed, probably the better games The Sims 2 and 3 may have never appeared.
Expansion packs: Livin’ Large, House Party, Hot Date, Vacation, Unleashed, Superstar, Makin’ Magic.
