    Crin goes to Gamescom

    Dear readers, I’ve posted a few not-help-blog-like posts over the past few days.The reason why is that – as many other German fan sites – I was invited to go to Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. I was able to see a closed door presentation about Supernatural and Seasons and had the opportunity to play Supernatural for a bit. The two days were epic and I really enjoyed meeting people from other fan sites and to chat with the moderators of the German official forum. It was a pity that the producers didn’t have more time, I would have loved a…

    Crinrict in Moonlight Falls

    Gamescom Information on Supernatural The new town  Moonlight Falls is crawling with supernatural beings. There are fairies, werewolves, ghosts, witches and vampires but also a few normal Sims.

There are a few flat-sharing Sims, the Singhs, McDuffs, Knopfler, Ivy, Grimm and what their names are (note that the names are from the German version of the Game).

    Behind the curtains – Options and more

    Supernatural also brings us some changes in the UI. There are new options, a collectors journal and something new about the ingame store ads. My assumptions is that most of these will also be in the patch but if that is true for the lunar cycle, I really don’t know. Options Options are still global for all savegames. If you want saves with supernaturals and saves without, you need to change the options frequently. You can use AnyGameStarter for this or you can have several Options.ini files which you rename with every savegame you have. As advertised you can turn…

    A diving board for Crinrict

    Seasons Gamescom Information Splash! The kid jumps from the diving board. Yes, that was a jump not a dive and a splashy one too. His mom who’s standing nearby is got all wet. Kiddo needs to practice a lot more until he gets those different dives down. Luckily the boy is still young and rather skinny for the bigger and heavier the Sim, the more will get wet around the pool when they do a splash bomb. In the background we can see the summer gnome (in the presentation, not the pic). There will be one for each Season. The…
