NEW: Family Collections!

Today we have opened up a new database for family collections and started them off with clean versions of the base game and EP families for your convenience. People often ask for one of the original families after they have long played them, or deleted them, or just want to see them in a different neighbourhood. After a collaboration of FA’s, Mods and myself, we have gathered all of these families for you.

Check out the new family collections today!

Subs rates and private data.

You may remember that some time back we linked the subscription rates to the Euro rather than the US Dollar due to the exchange rates effecting site income dramatically. The downside at the time was a slightly higher cost for USA users but it made our accounts far more stable for us to plan around.

The good news is that USA users can now benefit from the increased strength of their currency against the Euro, which means that it's now the cheapest it's been to buy a subscription to TSR since the changes, so you might like to check out the subscriber rates and take advantage of them while they are in your favour!

We would also like to take this opportunity to calm some concerns that people have about our payment processes. The TSR 'naysayers' around the community are trying to stir up trouble again by claiming that we share payment data from our subscribers.

The fact is that wether you use PayPal or our card handling service Bibit, TSR receive no bank or card details whatsoever. That's the point of using a secure service. Your details are handled by them. We get no more than your confirmed name, mail address and most of the money (it costs us to use their services). TSR has never shared any login details of any of the 2 million registered email addresses we have for our members, though many spammers would be very happy to get their hands on them I'm sure!

Your financial data is never seen by TSR and the personal data that you do share with us is safe.

Oh, and no, we don't put Trojan files in all of the 900 thousands downloads we serve every day. Nice scaremongering I'm sure, but I don't think our site would still be the biggest in the community after 9 years if we pulled stunts like that!

Update: This post was never intended to be a forum for TSR haters and new account creators to post their rants against TSR, so for that reason, I'm disabling comments here. TSR is accused of being illegal and breaking laws every day by the haters who think that pay sites are illegal. It's a long debated and clearly fruitless argument. We are not illegal and we are here to stay. We don't share private data with anyone outside our organization. If you wish to continue the TSR bashing then go back to your own communities that encourage such activity.

TSR gets a first look at Sims 3!

On Friday, July 18th 2008, Tug and I visited EA Redwood Shores, this time to have a first preview of The Sims 3! As a change to the usual in depth article we opted for a live chat event from Redwood Shores the next day, and to continue discussions in the forums thereafter. Join us in the live chat and Forums as we discuss our notes and bundles of information which you can read about in my Sims 3 Preview Notes.

Live Sims 3 Chat Event! (DATE EDIT)

This Friday 18th July, Tug and I will be at EA all day in Redwood Shores getting the low-down on The Sims 3. Soon after I return to Europe I will write up and post a first look preview of the game, but if you are desperate for more juicy info before that, we will be hosting a live chat event from Redwood Shores on Saturday 19th, where we hope to be able to answer as many of your burning Sims 3 questions as we can. We'll also be having a general chat about the game and will no doubt be getting up to some mad antics as the refreshments kick in! The chat will start at Noon Pacific time (3pm Eastern, 8pm London) and run for as long as we can manage! Feel free to pop in, details of how are on the Chat Pages.

Update on Downloads problems

The problematic file servers that caused the download problems experienced by some of our members last week have been fixed, and we now expect the downloading to work much better again. As we are now again running on 5 dedicated file servers the total download capacity should also be better.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience that these problems caused our members. Our members who had an active subscription during the time of the problems have been compensated.

If you still have problems with downloads, it's probably unrelated to last weeks issues. Please use our on-line support system for reporting that.

Select Artist news

We have retired a few inactive artists but are proud to welcome 3 new artists to the group. Please welcome the following:

- Agaliha5
- Tugmel
- Uma Design

TSR welcomes zvaella!

After finishing her studies she is full of inspiration and creativity so lets all enjoy her many great creations. Be sure to give her a warm welcome in her guestbook!

Problems with downloads

There are problems with one of our fileservers (again) for subscribers. It appears there are problems when using the download basket and sims2pack files. So for the moment please resort to using the zip downloads. We have ordered new hardware and will replace the corrupt server early this week (as well as fixing it first). We are very sorry for the inconvenience and we will credit you with two extra days once this is resolved.

Edit: It seems the problem depends on which fileserver you end up on, so it may work for some while not for others.
