AgeOfSam April Feature

Hi, my name’s Salvo, I’m 27, I’m from Italy and In real life I’m a tattoo artist. I love art and everything related and, of course, I’m a big fan of The Sims franchise! I’ve been a Simmer since the beginning. I was about 8 years old when The Sims came out. I remember my older sister buying the game and letting me play with it. Since then I never really stopped, I grew up with it and I’m not planning to stop anytime soon. I find it extremely entertaining and that’s what keeps me playing! 

I’d say the Sims 4 is my favorite game of the franchise, cause the CAS allows you to mold your Sims as you please, even though I miss some features from the old ones such as color wheel from the Sims 3. When it comes to gameplay, I cheat a lot haha... at least with my Simself family, otherwise I like to play with careers, and lately I’ve been trying some challenges such as “Rags To Riches” and the “100 Babies Challenge”

"My favorite thing about The Sims 4 so far is the world of Sulani. I’m not a beach person in real life, but that world is absolutely gorgeous. There are a lot of activities and again, the surroundings... Stunning! "

If any point I had to quit playing The Sims, it would probably, or life getting too busy. But I always try to find some spare time so, my second guess would be death.There’s nothing I really hate about The Sims 4 to be honest, I’m pretty happy about the game itself, of course it can be improved in some areas but overall I’m happy. I think making all the bodies of water swimmable, being able to drive cars, more jobs and definitely the color wheel would add so much to the game. I mean, that was the best thing ever in the franchise!  I would love to get something like TS3 ambitions, just because that would allow my Sim-Self to have the same job as me. I’d love to get another vacation world, maybe with a resort of some sort, and a theme park would be great! 

About The Sims 5 rumors and speculations, at first I was excited about the online thing... like being able to play with my friends would be amazing, but then I thought I’m a big fan of CC and that might not be possible in an online game, so I don’t know how I feel about that. I really don’t have expectations from the game, cause I don’t like having  big expectations and then being disappointed, so until they release the game I’ll be playing with TS4. I’m ready though! 

I’ve always been watching  the community from the outside until recently. In the last year I started watching building videos on YouTube and that got me closer to this amazing community. So I decided like a month ago to create a Twitter account and be active inside the community and everyone is so welcoming and positive, they make you feel like part of a big family and it’s fantastic!
