Web Site Comments and Commentary
Sir4Sims
R.I.P.
Sir4Sims appears to be off line. All we get at that URL now is a list of links to sites related to computer games; looks like something generated by Bravenet. Our original review follows, as it was in December 2001.

Large list of Sims links. Nice collection of poinsettias and other Christmas-themed goodies. We couldn't find a link to the downloads area on the main page, so here it is. You'll find lots of themed sets here, all with consistently high quality objects. Many items for Hot Date. Available in both Italian and English. Looks like it's hosted on Bravenet.

Carla says, "The castle set! Gotta have it!"

Entry updated 2 Nov 02
SKINDEX The SKINDEX has a large number of skins for The Sims, Freedom Force, and the Unreal Tournament. Emphasis is on comic book characters, with some television and movie characters in the mix. Also has walls and houses for The Sims.

Marvel Comics characters were removed in June 2003 in response to a request from Marvel Comics.

Entry updated 20 Nov 03
Skins by Jill D Jill has created a huge library of high-quality faces for your sims at Skins by Jill D. Most of her skins are based on meshes by Fionn, so you need to subscribe to Sim Freaks ($6.95 a month; beware of recurring charges to your PayPal account or credit card) to get the meshes. (Note that Fionn's meshes tend to be very large files that can slow down your game, so you don't want to have too many of them in one household.)

Skin Shrinker

SkinShrinker


Livin' Luna
20 Mar 02: Skin Shrinker is a free utility for Macintosh users that converts skin files to be Mac-compatible. It does this by shortening long filenames in the .skn and .cmx files and rewriting the files accordingly. (See Caddy's essay about long filenames for more information about fixing filenames.)

It only repairs the .cmx and .skn files. Those are the files that define the mesh (that is, the shape) of the bodies of Sims characters. It will fix long filenames for the character files that come with some objects, too. It does not do anything with .bmp (skin) files, but fortunately you can do this easily by hand by simply renaming them.

Skin Shrinker requires MacOS 8.6 or later with Carbonlib 1.1, and will run under OS-X. It was programmed with REALBasic by Cherie Benoit.

Pasiphae says, "Carla insists that Skin Shrinker deserves my Livin' Luna badge because it represents the free and open culture of Luna City, and that's good enough for me! I love this program!"

Caddy says, "And the web site design is one of the most elegant I've seen -- simple, straightforward, and to the point while maintaining a graphically appealing layout."

Entry updated 22 Feb 2004 - Updated URL
Slacker's Sim Shack


Livin' Luna
Lots of recolored objects in primary colors.

Pasiphae says, "Dick Steffens found lots of Livin' Luna stuff at Slacker's Sim Shack! His review of the site includes notes and links to where the goodies lie. I didn't find any stuff that screams Luna, but we should be able to paint metal any color we want."
Updated 14 Feb 2002. Corrected URL.
Slayer Sims (Buffy)
R.I.P.
Appears to have been slain. For more information, see Dick Steffens's notes.

Carla says, "Oh darn! I really like to watch century-old reruns of Buffy."
Sleepy Hollow Sims Sleepy Hollow Sims has lots of spooky stuff as well as some items from the Victorian era when the Legend of Sleepy Hollow was written. Lots of spiderwebs; lots of gruesome green. Some horror, some goth.

Sleepy Hollow opened in January 2002 with a theme based on the famous Headless Horseman, only to be knocked off line by bandwidth blues and remote-linking thieves. Reopened on Simshost on August 17, 2002. Closed for a while about a year later, and reopened as an independent subscription site in early 2004.

Entry updated 8 Feb 2004
Slink's Burrow Online
A.K.A. Dr. Slink's Burrow
Collection of technical information and some downloadable characters for The Sims. Offers a compendium of skins showing an image of the character and the site where you can download it. If you find that your neighbors can't seem to leave your lot and tend to starve to death out in the street, it's probably because you have inadvertently deleted the invisible pedestrian portal. A similar car portal works for the car pool. You can download replacements from Dr. Slink.

Carla says, "A scotsman in a miniskirt? I don't think so. But brick walls in scale are a great find."

Entry updated 9 Sep 01.
Small Sims We haven't reviewed Small Sims yet, but we will soon! Recommended by Kate, webmistress of Parsimonious (page 7), so we know you'll like it!

Pop-up ads. Amusement: On the Mac, a little window pops up, complaining that "your browser isn't Win32-compatible" but the site works great anyhow. Works great on Windows XP, too.

Entry updated 20 Feb 2004
SMN & Sim Snobs


Livin' Luna
After Latricia recieved a bill for $2000 for excess bandwidth use, she had to change SimSnobs to a pay site in March 2002, asking $5 a month from subscribers. SimSnobs offers really magnificent work in all categories with an authentic Victorian theme. Features truly outstanding work by Cheranna, of Simdoodler. (Simdooler is listed on page 9 of the Moon Sims links.)

Read the subscription procedures carefully. Subscriptions run from the 1st of the month, not from the day you send money, and you need to renew each month. No refunds.

Pasiphae says, "All that beautiful cloth and wood would cost a fortune on the moon! But that Victorian brass elevator belongs in the grand lobby at the Luna City Hotel, and earns my Livin' Luna badge!"

Carla says, "Well let's find a way to fake it! I want that bathroom!"

Entry updated 21 Dec 03
Southern Living Sims
(Sim and Let Sim)
Southern Living Sims changed its name to Sim and Let Sim on August 27, 2003. See the entry for Sim and Let Sim on page 9.

Entry updated 5 May 2004
Spanki's Skin Shack
R.I.P.
HTTP 404 error; Does anyone know where this site is? Following is the original entry:

The home of Bodywarp from Keith "Spanki" Young. Also offers a collection of Spanki's unique body meshes and some well-crafted skins to go on them. If you make custom skins, you want Bodywarp. The latest word we have is that Spanki is taking a breather from simsmania, but his web site is still up and going strong. Some of his body-building projects are now located on The Wage of Sim; which is currently off line. Spanki also offers some unique female heads (which is why he originally wrote Bodywarp).
Caution: Background music.

Pasiphae says, "Thank you, Spanki! You saved me from looking like a groundhog!"

Entry updated 3 Apr 02
Statuesque Sims
R.I.P.
Statuesque Sims appears to be gone from 0catch.com and we haven't heard back from webmaster Lady Matisha. Is the site still alive somewhere?

"Statuesque" being another word for "voluptuous." Has some meshes for very curvy women and one very muscular man. The unique filenaming convention, replacing one of the digits in the body number with a "v", means the skins have to be renamed to make them compatible with SimShow; however, you can view them with Sim-Poseium and they work in the game. The filenames are not Mac-compatible, so Mac users will end up fixing the filnames anyway.

A set of replacements for the game's default meshes is available. If you install these, then your statuesque sims -- and all the other fat female characters -- will have their statuesque shape when they change into their swimsuits and pajamas.

Entry updated 22 Feb 02
Steath's SIMart An eclectic selection of paintings executed with quite a flair for design and composition. Boldly patterned rugs to bring out the colors in your furniture. Mansions for your sims and a small collection of walls to decorate them, all from StealthiBear. Opened March 19, 2002 on Stormpages.

Entry created 6 April 02
Steffan's Sims Back on line at a new URL! Steffan's Sims offers reviews of the sundry versions of the game along with a document on the cheat codes and some fun quizzes. There is a downloads area that has the feel of a chat board as well as several pages of downloads with a unique navigation interface.

Navigation hint: When you go to the downloads areas, you will see an invitation to "Please select an area" and a link to "by Steffan" below it. Click on the link to to find the downloads. The site is set up to be expandable, and appears to be driven by a database. Don't miss the "textures" area; these are replacement skins that change the appearance of some of the standard objects in the game.

Entry updated 2 Dec 01
Steve's Skins 2000 Steve is back! He's at his own domain now, after a lengthy hiatus owing to the demise of The Sims Resource site hosting services.

Lots of clothing for adult characters and a nice collection of unique recolored objects. Emphasis on celebrity skins, especially females. There's special section just for Tomb Raider featuring skins of the outfits that Angelina Jolie wore in the Lara Croft movie. Some clearly marked adult content includes more revealing skins and a collection of naked ladies for the walls.

Furnishings include a collection of framed pictures of celebrities. The Mega Posters section has an impressive multiple-panel walls that combine to form large posters of scantily clad female celebrities and grafitti.

Note that the "Body Meshes" link in the main navigation menu downloads a zip file with the body meshes that Steve and Scott use. Hosted by Entanet in the UK.

Entry updated 16 April 02
Stimusims


SimsHost
Stimusims opened on December 21, 2003. The opening goodies feature a set of men's western wear and women's casual fashions. In the furniture department (SIMple Designs) you will find a collection of recolored easy chairs and some theatre seats. The site has a special section that your adult sims will enjoy.

This is one of more than sixty great Sims sites hosted by SimsHost. You'll want to subscribe to SimsHost so you can download the goodies. Fortunately, it won't cost you much to subscribe and in addition to getting access to dozens of the greatest sites on the net, when you subscribe to SimsHost you are doing your part to keep all of the great Sims sites on line!

Studio Sim Lots of everything in every category. Nicely done objects with exacting detail and rotation angles. Very attractive clothing. Watch your cursor to tell which categories are active; most are. Came on line c. 10 Nov 01.
Entry updated 16 Feb 02
stylissimode Poses to use with Simpose-ium. Hosted on fateback.com. Has been open at least since 2001. Patience pays; the web pages load very slowly. The final update was on 22 May 2003. New poses and updates are at PlasticJinx (which seems to have serious problems with webcraft).
Entry updated 21 Dec 03
Sultry Earth


Livin' Luna
Sultry Earth's outstanding collection of skins for adult females, both heads and clothes, has been growing since at least 2002. Don't miss their "Themes" section for the furnishings.

Spread across two servers, the site's navigation is a little disjointed. Use your Back button if you need it to get back to the main menu.

Pasiphae says, "Look at all the glass in Le Masquerade bathroom! That's definitely Livin' Luna!"

Entry updated 8 Feb 2004
Sun Air sims Offers some unique objects, including a set of tranparent blue glass furniture. Available in both English and Chinese.
Entry updated 3 Apr 02 -Updated URL
Super Sims Site is in both Russian and English. It uses windows-1251 encoding for the Cyrillic alphabet, so if you want read the Russian make sure you have that character set installed and set your preferences (it's under View in Netscape) accordingly. The English menu is on the right-hand side of the page. Apparently came on line on August 1, 2001. Hosted on Boom.ru in Russia.

Carla says, "It's a long way from Luna City to Moscow, but if that's where I have to go to find fashions like these, I'm making the trip! Zamina Ekaterina is a genius!"

Caddy says, "When I visited, the web server wasn't quite configured to handle the zip mime type, so you might have to unzip the files manually. This works fine. Note that the Cyrllic encoding can change the default font in your web browser; not a big deal, but it can be a surprise if you're not expecting it. It should work OK to just close and restart your web browser to recover your default font."

Pasiphae says, "I'm just flat-out stunned by the quality of the work and its presentation. I didn't find any Livin' Luna stuff, but everything on this site is enough to make me want to take a vacation on Earth!"

Carla says, "The Green Valley bathroom! We can do that on Luna, and I want it!"

Entry updated 2 Sep 01
Susie's Sim Stories Unfortunately, it appears that Susie has ceased to update her site. It is still available, though. Following is the original entry:

In his review, Dick Steffens explains that Susie's Sim Stories offers just what she promises -- entertaining stories about Sims characters illustrated with pictures from The Sims.

Entry updated 3 Apr 02
Suz4Sims a.k.a. House of the Rising Sims Original and recolored objects with a theme reminiscent of the Sixties hippie movement. Guest artists display brightly colored clothes in bright patterns. Features walls and floors by Mama Soul and skins by Litlgrlblue.

The artists seem to be caught up in TSO so new additions happen when they happen, but the site is still there and still rockin'! Last update was February 16, 2003; nothing new since then.

Caution: mild drug-related themes.

Entry updated 21 Dec 03
Sweet Nothings Sweet Nothings has categories for skins for all types of characters. The current emphasis is on adult females, with a variety of new faces based on Fionn's meshes (which are imported into The Sims from Poser). Pay attention to the notes to left of the previews; that's where you'll learn which version of The Sims you need for that skin.

Swimmerz
R.I.P.
Site disabled by Homestead. Our original review follows.

Several artists have joined their efforts to provide coordinating furniture and furnishings presented in on one of elegant settings we've seen. Excellent server reponse, too. When you get to the site, scroll down the page to find the links to the goodies. When we visited only the sections for Living Room, Walls & Floors, Bathroom, and Paintings, Tapestries, & Rugs were active; but it says here there's a huge update coming on May 1. The web counter started on April 21, 2002, and the first entry in the guest book is the day before, so that's a clue! The nautical theme for the site is carried through in one of the furniture sets. Operates the Castaways forum on EZBoard.

Entry created 29 April 02; updated 21 Dec 03
Symbiosis Dick Steffens's review didn't find any Livin' Luna stuff at Symbiosis.
TA Sims We haven't reviewed TA Sims yet, but we will soon! Recommended by Kate, webmistress of Parsimonious (page 7), so we know you'll like it!

Tawny's Sims Lair
R.I.P.
Site closed. Had several houses and a few clothes. It looks like Tawny was actively adding things to her site for 9 days in the year 2000 then was abandoned.

Entry updated 21 Dec 03
Teener's Sim Site
R.I.P.
This site has been lost to the Homestead purges. Following is the original entry:

Looks like a relatively new site. Already has an impressive collection of objects, walls, and floors. The sets of walls with matching floors look especially well-coordinated. The Simburger stuff moved here, among a collection very interested themed walls. Hosted on Homestead.

Entry updated 3 Apr 02.
The 13th Sim
R.I.P.
Seems to have dropped off the net when Crosswinds changed their policies. Our original review follows.

Some adult female skins by Rhiannon. Lots of recolored objects. Would benefit from some better navigation aids and back links. Hosted on Crosswinds.

Entry updated 5 Nov 01. Updated 2 Mar 03.
The Admirable Fantastic Shop for Sims Fascinating collection of sets such as the Heaven and Hell themes. More clothes for SimOne's Big Girls project. Hosted on planeta.terra.com in Brazil.

Pasiphae says, "We do have a lot of Big Girls in the easy-living life in Luna City, but I don't think that exactly counts as a Livin' Luna feature."

Caddy says, "I kept running into missing pages and broken links."

Doesn't seem to have updated since 2001, but it's still there.

Entry updated 2 Mar 03
The Blarney Stone Dr. Pixel's The Blarney Stone now hosts Tigeress's skins from the late, great Sim Kitten along with his remarkable collection of complex characters. The skins are from several periods and storybook genres. Pets, too. Follow the arrows just under the menu bar at the top of the page to navigate among the selections in each category.

Hosts a forum on EZBoard where you can also download new things.

Entry created 7 Dec 02
The Cloth Menagerie
R.I.P.
Seems to have disappeared from the web. Our original review follows.

We shouldn't be surprised to learn from Dick Steffens's review that The Cloth Menagerie is about clothes, designed by a professional costumer. The site also offers a tutorial making skins.
Entry updated 27 Feb 03
The Country Club Sim According to the review by Dick Steffens, there is nothing to be found at The Country Club Sim. We've disabled the link to the URL because it just takes you to an endless loop of pop-up ads.
The Danish Sim
R.I.P.
Just a blank page now. Our original review follows.

Some walls and complete houses. Walls are distributed as .rar files, so we couldn't do anything with them.

Entry updated 2 Mar 03
The Diary of a Sim Hosted on Strategy Planet. Fails to load.
The Fellowship of Sims
R.I.P.
Site closed. Our original review on November 5, 2001 said, "Didn't find anything here but some buck-toothed vampires and fuzzy chairs. A note on the front page says the webmaster is thinking of closing the site."
Entry updated 21 Dec 03
The Historical Sim Offers skins in several historical and mythical themes. Great collection of low-cut ball gowns. This is definitely the place to shop for your characters who have been campaigning to have their very own pet fairy.

Entry created 22 Apr 02
The Garden of Sim on Fortune City
on Angelfire
Plants, planters, art, and statues for your sims' gardens on two different web sites. The Fortune City site is a few months older and has different stuff, but both sites have the same basic navigation scheme and categories. The webmaster does not intend to update the sites; however they will remain on line.
Entry updated 2 Dec 01
Themes by Pam


Livin' Luna
Pam's themes are collections of art and wallpapers, neatly organized in a huge selection of categories. Each category pops up a new window. The only Sims site I've seen that asks you to choose between different versions based on what web browser you are using. Hosted on crosswinds.net.

Pasiphae says, "I'm not sure if it's really Livin' Luna, but the Star Trek Theme is sooo cool!"

Entry created 26 Mar 02
The Original Sim Offering the key cast from The Garden of Eden, complete with fig leaves! Offers several unique skins with new meshes, including some big women and the "Simeon" apes. It's the first site we've seen that offers meshes of very obese children. Catalog includes some very original walls, floors, and houses. Nice collection of unique doors and windows. Many objects with very bright color schemes. Pages come up slowly, so max out your patience motive before visiting.

While you can download most of the things for free, the site has started a program whereby those who donate to the maintenance of the site are rewarded with special objects.
Entry updated 18 December 01
The Prep Sims Outlet Clothing for men and women. Lots of flared pants for both sexes. Hosted on Homestead.
The Roman Plaza Has the look and feel of Roman Sims, with a story about a Roman family illustrated with pictures from The Sims, downloadable skins, walls, and floors, and a couple of objects. Houses can be downloaded from links in the story about the Amelius family. Excellent craftsmanship in the execution of the skins, though the Roman Sims community still needs meshers to make some some better togas for the men.
