As you may have noticed, New York is fitted with several underground subways. As you may also have noticed, your sim does not use these subways, but instead takes a cab all around town (at least if your Sim doesn't own a car--and who in New York owns a car?!). So my question is this;

We Need You To Decide

As you may have noticed, the release of the 4th Beta has been quite delayed. This is because I've yet been able to remedy the Brooklyn Bridge issue (where pedestrian sims sometimes get stuck on it). Furthermore, CAW is being it's usual difficult self, and I've been unable to export (having to rely on others to export for me). This has obviously slowed testing greatly. This brings us to the point of this post:

Hello Everyone!

I would like to formally introduce myself. My name is Jamie , I also go by happyjme on, Modthesims and some other sim related sites. As some of you may know, I've been helping to build a number of lots for the New York world and Dan has asked me to help contribute to the creation of the last number of Betas and to the final version in the foreseeable future! He also asked if I'd like to be a contributor to this blog which I graciously accepted!
I have CC free versions of the NY lots featured on my simpage for anyone interested, though Dan has already told you guys about that so I'll just let you guys in on a little about myself and my simming habits! :)
I've been an avid Sims player since the original came out in the early 2000's and I have always loved building houses for my sims. Even before Sims I used to love building houses with my Lego's and drawing houses in notebooks. I am also pretty artistic and was in art classes throughout high school, but I never decided to go to architecture school like a lot of my family had suggested to me back then. That is my boyfriend's forte` and seeing the hell that architecture school is, I'm glad I never decided to do that! I prefer the simplicity of the Sims.
I can build a little bit of everything but I guess what I love to do most is build historical, urban style houses that would be found in a city. I live in the downtown of a small city and I love it so I guess it shows in my work.
I also do a lot of playing with my sim familes (one I have going on for 6 generations now) I take turns between building and playing. Sometimes for months at a time of only doing one before I switch to the other for a while! I also like testing new worlds. I can't seem to get enough of them!
But besides sims, you may find that i'm a big history buff and love anything that has to do with the 18th and 19th centuries. I also like to cook, read a little and listen to cheesy pop music. :) I also have two cats that like to constantly annoy my boyfriend! Most of the time my life is pretty mundane.
