Preview the new TSR!

The current design of The Sims Resource (Version 7) has been around for a long time now, during which time many new technologies have come along. As we embrace these to make TSR easier to use, more efficient and delicious to look at, we are moving towards Version 8 of your favorite Sims site!

In the past we have developed and then launched each new version of the site with much fanfare (and bugs). This time around we are making a gradual change, developing Version 7 into Version 8 progressively to be known as V8 Evolution!

In this screenshot you can see our current design for the v8 index page. This may change slightly as we develop, but it gives you an idea of the way TSR will look as we move into 2011. The first phase of V8 Evolution brings the new header, footer and navigation to the existing site design. The new index and download pages will follow soon.

Now for the exciting part! "How long do we have to wait to see this" you ask? Well... You don't! You can join us now in previewing the new style, features and technology by visiting This will be the test bed for each new feature before we roll it out to the full public servers on www.

Please do take a look and see what you think. Pop back here and post your thoughts and comments as your feedback will help us progress, both in terms of stability for users but the future design and usability of TSR as well.

We know there are still some bugs but we hope you like what you see...  Viva la Evolution!

Wow I've been trying it and it's really simple to use, not to mention how beautiful it is. I like the new version a lot, more than the current one.

I had loads of trouble with it yesterday when they put it up as a temp replacement for the main site. They said V8 was a way to download Sims 3 files, well that it is true. Here is the problem, I would download a file in Firefox and it would not install. Apparently anything download from V8 in Firefox was corrupted. The only way I could get anything to install yesterday is if I downloaded it in IE, which I don't use.

It is simpler, and the menus are really cool; however, I logged in and I'm a subscriber. All the pix from Sims 3, sets, that are subscriber showed up as so (that doesn't happen on the current site unless I am NOT logged in). I was able to download a file... also when I clicked for the full page of info/details on a new lot from aloelong, it also stated subscriber only even though I was able to dl the file.
My actual only complaint:  The size of the new version is MUCH smaller than the current site. It makes it difficult to read - and yes, my browser window font is set to default.
Keep up the great work!
