Nice to see somewhat of a Sims 1 community still alive. :)

I'm Skirlasvoud, an avid, somewhat OCD gamer who has recently gone through his folder of classics and decided to play the likes of Startopia and the Sims 1 again. Yes, sims 1. Never got into the newer ones and the classics have a more honest, sincere feel to them.

That, and I have an impressive collection of old stuff on an old hard-drive that is just waiting to get finally used. Some 2 gigs worth of stuff.

You see, a lot of the fun in the Sims 1 I've had, was using custom made fantasy to play out self-made scenarios in the game. Since I couldn't choose and many of these scenarios were based around skins I could find instead of the other way around, I simply perused the internet for them and gathered them all like an avid collector.

In 2009-2010, I also begin te realize how the amount of custom content sites for the sims 1 out there was beginning to shrink and I spend about a summer back then methodically going by lists, combing through sites to download the best they had on offer.
I wasn't a very good conservationist mind you, I just picked what I liked, but still, 2 gigs is nothing to sneeze over.

I made the archive... then promptly lost interest and moved on... until now. I'm finally committed to putting the hard work I put in back then, into the actual damn game.

Nowadays, I'm not so much in touch with the community anymore and I've promised myself to stop hoarding and play the game with what I have. I can imagine however, that an additional 6 years haven't been kind to the community and a lot of the stuff I have, has now vanished.

If anyone would like it, I could share some of the best I've got.


Back then I pillaged (looks over directory):

CTO is coming back after upgrades.

As for scenarios I know what you mean. I used to set up each household as, like, a mini sit-com. One woman was married to the grim reaper, I recall.

Not sure how to share yet, but I'd be happy to create a dropbox thing somewhere. If there's an official way of sharing stuff, point me at it zosa. I'm willing, but lazy. I try to be not that involved for fear of developing another download obsession.

The files I've got for the wood sims, identify themselves as from:

www.woodforsims.de

So yeah, I think I have what you want. AGAIN however, I'm picky and I have a very, very faint memory it was a pay site, so I just grabbed what I could (and liked).

Take a looksie at what I have:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kkjvn0b1t2hzoev/AABegVXF_h3kSPEMUSekr0oxa?dl=0

Again, if people want it, they'll need to ask for it. I'm not going to run after you lot. ;-)


EDIT: Isn't Woodforsims still active? I can access the site just fine...

it's still there but the host is long gone XD you can get the freebies but that's it

as far as items go there is nothing i don't want since wfs stuff matches my collection style(them and dincer and ats are my staples). for a while parts of the pay stuff was hosted on another site but i have a bad habit of going months without backing up my game so when it goes to pot i loose lots of stuff x______x



well, i use sendspace.com but i dunno if that is the best way to do it since it has a finite timer for downloading(i think 90 days?) and everything has to be zipped first. dropbox could be the best bet

Hi,
I'm super interested in anything I can get. I was inactive for a long time when it comes to downloading, though I never stopped playing. I've only just started trying to get stuff from the few remaining sites, but it's obvious I've missed a lot.

If there's some way to do it, I'd take the lot. wink

The Problem is that my Dropbox has a limit of some 2 gigs...

but I could make a "best of" compilation and share the link later on. :)

Check in here later this week. I might be able to whip something up.

And here... we... are
I thought about sorting out the lot at first, but it was too time consuming.

Arthur's Sims Collection.rar has MY ENTIRE COLLECTION.

Apparently I was wrong. This stuff wasn't from 2010, it was from 2006. I just moved it to my storage hard drive in 2010.
Again, the collection isn't perfect. It's just the stuff that *I* thought worth saving and I don't have any pay-for content since I was just a kid without a credit card back then. My tastes are drawn towards fantasy sim skins, kinky stuff and just well presented skins.

I've also added a few separate folders, showcasing the stuff that I think is the best I have. Things like Night Time and Blarney Stone. However, its just a showcase. It should all be in the RAR file too.
I swear to god you guys, if those showcase skins aren't salvaged and put on CTO, I'm coming back from the dead to sue Simblesse Oblige for warcrimes against the Sims 1 community.


Have fun!

This is probably the last you'll hear from me. With CTO continuing to be down, I'm gonna stop downloading to finally... *gulp* play the game. Browsing for more stuff at this point, is useless. I'm already at a loss to decide what I'm actually going to play with, which amounts to some 1% of my collection.
