So today I decided to say “goodbye” to the Made by Me neighborhood and “hello” to The Sims (as in the original game). My thinking is that playing the original may help remind me why The Sims 2 is so great again, like the whole, children never aging that I hated in the original game (starting to have second thoughts about this already). 

I am also planning on trying to recreate some of the original Maxis Made homes (not the Sims living in them, just the homes) and see how I do. This might help me with the building problem I seem to have as this way I will actually have a blue print to follow and some idea of what it should look like.
