With the Sims 3 still going strong for a while longer, and a new patch already confirmed to be in the works, Twallan has officially retired from the Sims modding community. His official statement can be found at his State of the Mod page. It reads:
Sorry folks, I am to be the bearer of bad tidings this day.
As most of you have noticed, the amount of time I have been able to allot to my work on the Sims has been steadily decreasing over the past few months. There are numerous reasons for this : Ranging from changes in my real-life work, increasing disinterest in Sims, and various personal concerns that have been building up over the past couple of years.
I had hoped that my interest would once again be piqued over the holidays, however unfortunately that was not the case.
So rather than continue leading you all on as to when/if I will ever complete any further projects, I have decided to end this grand thought experiment as of now.
With that, I would like to thank you all for making my time in the Sims 3 world a satisfying experience. Shout outs to SimAd, Trif, TheISZ, and all the various contributors who have made this project entertaining.
As a parting gift for any interested modders, here is the full source for all my mods .
Feel free to pick them apart as you see fit, or release them yourselves with any modifications you wish (though you may want to change the names to avoid any confusion).
Thank you, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
Twallan had already confirmed his departure from the series with The Sims 4 release, but as of today, he will no longer be updating any of his mods for The Sims 3. To get a better idea of how this affects game breaking issues, be sure to check out Crinrict’s post on Twallan’s departure.
Thank you for a wonderful ride Twallan, and best wishes to you on your future endeavors!
SimGuruKelly has confirmed that another Sims 3 Game Update is in the works. There is no information or ETA on the patch at this time, so we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
