has been new UFO observations in Mazaloom district, where Simmerville is
located. All this year we have gazed to the sky, wondering when will it
all start? When will we get our new dimension?
agree that the future will arrive medio September. Starting August 5th
you can follow Simmerville's most exciting project ever: Operation Transformation
TS2! We will say good bye to Old Days and welcoming Modern Times.
The goal for this tedious
operation is naturally to enter our FUTURE successfully. 12 steps will
bring out the best results, and the waiting might even fall easier. But
before you go on, your hood must have decided to add the 3rd dimension
to your current existence.
quite sure about that yet? Well, you must let go off Old Days and allow
them to be replaced with the new. Perhaps a local democratic process to
deside whether the hood should accept the new dimension or not would help
you? While the dimension is returned to Sim Nation in general, there are
ways to ignore it or at least to delay it. But your hood can not mix the
Old Days and the Modern Times, you must make a choice. A democratic decission
will make it easier to avoid negativity during the operation.
up various information on Simmerville's section devoted to FUTURE,
as well as the Maxis scientists' information.
Expect all kinds of reactions from the local Sims; some residents will
loudly distrust your plan, and some families might move away to escape
If your hood doesn't already
have a Hood Council, you should at least select a committee of Sims staying
in charge of the local progress (and it's always good to know who to blame
if something goes wrong...) Go for the more respected residents, but also
include a Sim to represent the average resident.
The operation includes 12
steps with one page each. Some of the content will be available from within
these 12 project pages only, and not linked from Simmerville web's front
page. You will find tips and schemes for you hood council, articles and
interviews with excited Sims, at least one major project including your
local Testsims. On each step you will get to know how well Simmerville
and other hoods managed. Please note that documents, files and other stuff
might be added to each step page after it has been released.
your hood is facing the future, be welcome to join us in Operation Transformation
