Default Do any of you miss CTO Sims?
It was such a unique website dedicated to saving the legacy of Sims 1. I remember when I made my account there probably a few or so years ago.Actually it was four years now that i'm thinking about it. The site requires you to make a certain amount of posts to unlock the ability to download files. It was kind of a hard requirement for me to fulfill but I was able to accomplish it by asking questions, helping people out the way that I know how and sharing the story that I had about the time I found The Sims Unleashed at my local Walmart, how I was so shocked to see standing right next to Sims 4 and 3 like it's the early 2000's again and why I decided to buy it. When I finally unlocked the ability to download files there I was so ecstatic because it's very hard to find good Sims 1 content nowadays since most of sites for it has long since been gone and the Wayback Machine isn't always reliable although I was able to retrieve plenty of classic goodies from there because it somehow managed to save some of the files. I also remembered clicking on different links and installing a lot of skins,mods,objects and plenty of cool old stuff on there along with the sites that are still around like Around The Sims. Speaking of Around The Sims somebody somehow still had the missing children skins files that the website lost to a server crash a long time ago and was kind enough to send them to me (If you're interested in them then I would gladly look through my hard drives and send them to you) and I couldn't have been more thankful. It also had a lot of helpful tutorials that help out you on creating content for it. Somebody helped me fix my white texture and missing mesh problem along with helpful information about creating new animations to put in my game but sadly ever since last year the website was down but the good news is that some administrator posted on Facebook on November the 11 that he'll work on the website after he's finished settling in. I will post the link here but you would have to wait until they add you to the group like I did https://www.facebook.com/groups/ctosims/ so there is a glimmer of hope for the site being back online after all and when it does I would start firing up Sims 1 again and start downloading more old but gold content for it.

Old but Gold... I love that. I just got a craving for Sims 1 this holiday season and you wouldn't believe how much stuff is still out there to find. Of course I looked high and low for my thousands of downloads first, but can't find a thing *sigh* I bet I put them somewhere real clever... never to be found again is what I'm thinking. Anyway yeah, pretty fun looking around and seeing how much is still around - which would hardly be necessary with CTO, so yes, I miss them BAD and hope they return in some form.

I finally got around to looking through my hard drives and I found the missing children skins that was lost after the server that somebody was kind enough to send to me on my old Hitachi hard drive. Around The Sims says that you're not allowed to redistribute them but since they no longer have the files available for download and you couldn't find this anywhere else to download I thought it would be okay to upload. I wish that I still remember the person's name so I could give him or her credit. There are probably more missing files lost after the server crash but these are the only files that I know are lost after trying to download [email protected] Don't worry on the CTO Sims Facebook page one of the
administrators said that the site isn't gone permanently and one of them wrote about a couple months ago that he is going to work on the site after he's done settling in and if it doesn't return then what a tragic loss it would be for the old school Sims fans such as me and you.

Awesome! Thanks! Do you also happen to have the birthday cake hack from Millennium Sims? Any place I can find that mentions it the links to download are no longer active been really missing that mod! I hate forever children lol

Edit: Nevermind I found a group (sims_hideout) on the Yahoo Groups that had the puberty cake file uploaded so I finally found what I was looking for!

I think a group of people should start a new Sims 1 fansite grabbing all of the CC we can find. If the site is still up we can link it. For stuff that is not up and you found elsewhere. We could upload it. I am terrified that at some point the fantastic CC for this game will be lost. I would hate to see that happen. PM me if you would like to help.

I want, I need, therefore I am a sim!

I would totally be onboard for this! I have a ton of CC from The Well Dressed Sim, 7th/8th Deadly Sims, Sims Interior Designs, and several others that are long gone. I have most of them cataloged/organized and have been working on a Tumblr page (Simspresso) that let's people see CC items and their inventory locations for easier access in-game. I'm also considering setting up a Google Drive dedicated to my Sims 1 CC files only so I can link them and allow people to DL them if they are wanting something they see on my blog. I love Sims 1 and if anybody out there is wanting to revitalize CTO Sims or something like it, I would love to help and be a part of it!

I'm in but i'm way more interested in Sims 2 and 3 especially 2 because that game improved on a lot of things that Sims 1 didn't have probably due to the limited technology and budget,however i'm still down to playing Sims 1 whenever I start to get nostalgic about the music and the old-school 2d and 3d graphics. I just need to get on my laptop to play it but I couldn't find the battery and i'm using my new one. I still have a lot of skins and mods on it and my laptops that I would like to share if anybody has a hard time finding or if it's unavailable anywhere including the Internet Archive. Which in my case it was the lost ATS Skins that I had reuploaded not too long ago under my old username Gamegenius.

I haven't signed in to MTS for several years but am visiting again having got a bit tired of the heavy moderation at the main Forum.

I have multiple Free downloads on CDs (dated 2002)! that I had saved and pruned to those that actually worked ok. I wouldn't mind adding those to your lists but have no idea how to upload them. I also have a few utilities as well. eg: changing roof colours. In those days - early 2000s I was on dialup and not on a budget enabling me to get those from paysites as well. I was stupid enough to buy those rip-off CDs, (From Game and not knowing they were rip-offs from creators at the time) and have 1000 add-ons from a PC Format disk of 2002 (they have a TSR logo with those). I assume they were taken free from other websites at the time.
