Save The Date: SimsVIP’s Three Year Anniversary!

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of our readers for the continued support over the last three years. With over 18 Million site visits and a dedicated reader base, I am very excited to be celebrating our Three Year Anniversary with you all! (Where did the time go?!?!?!)

An extended thank you goes out to the wonderful staff here at SimsVIP:

 ManagerJosh, Petar, George, Whipperwhirl and Wee Albet

The site cannot function without these wonderful folks!  

To celebrate SimsVIP’s 3rd Birthday, I am hosting a super special giveaway. Remember when SimGuruAmy auctioned off the awesome Sims 3 hand made quilts? I entered the auction and was able to win two quilts. One for me, and one for a very lucky SimsVIP reader. :)

It’s even signed by the Dev teams @ The Sims Studio!

So last night as I was laying in bed I kept thinking, “I’m 99% certain players can put that hot tub under the gazebo.” But I hadn’t actually made sure, so I dropped one in there (from Seasons) to be absolute certain. No issues at all.

Community Spotlight: Adventfear (Storyteller)

Here to kick off the March Community Spotlight, is Storyteller Adventfear! In an introduction below, Adventfear gives readers the inside scoop on his hit Sims comic series. If you don’t already know who he is, you will now! Take it away Nick!


Hello there to everyone there, my name is Nick but you can call me Nick! Or adventfear, that’s my username I go by. I am a Sims story writer, lot creator, and creator of a Facebook comic series called Tom and Annabelle, which is also a story as well with currently 42 chapters.
I have to say “thanks!!” to Alexis at SimsVIP who gave me this amazing opportunity to share my story and erm… stories with this amazing site.
While I try to create fantastic stories of aliens and genies and evil unicorn witches, my own life story is not much to talk about. I live in Missouri, go to a community college for now where I’m trying to learn more about writing, and I love creativity, I love being creative. I also like long walks on the bea… wait, this isn’t a da… okay.
