The Sims 2 is a life simulation game that allows players to create virtual people and manage their lives from birth to death and beyond (zombies, yay). There is no wrong way to play, there is no way to "win," and the game never ends. It is whatever you want it to be. It is whatever you imagine it to be. It is whatever you make it.
The typical way people play is by creating several sims and making them get to the top of their careers, max their skills by studying, make a ton of friends, and pop out a bunch of kids. Well, that's great, but have you been playing so long that you now feel something is missing? Something more than just the endless maximizing of motives and skills and friendships and love affairs?
There is more.
With effort and creativity, your neighborhood can be a realistic society, with a government, laws, culture, traditions, and an economy. The lives of your sims take on new meaning when they are living within the confines of a unique society.
This community is for the discussion of the process of creating such societies. Join and your game will never be the same!
