About Me:

Hi!  My name is Rachel and I've been playing the Sims since Sims 1.  (We're talking 15 years ago!)  My favorite is Sims 2, but with many Sims 4 expansion packs on the horizon, that could quickly change!  I enjoyed building in the Sims 3.  I play lots of other video games, too.

The Sims 4:
  • I do not use any mods or custom content.  
  • I've been playing the same game (i.e., the same neighborhood that began with Scarlet Firecracker) since September 2014 when the Sims 4 was released!
  • I use Fraps to take screenshots and record videos for my YouTube channel.
  • I play with the following Game Options.  I also play with Aging Off except for Active Household.
  • I follow SimsVIP for all my Sims 4 related news!
  • My computer specs:
    • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    • AMD FX 8350 Black Edition

    • Get to Work (released March 2015)
    • Get Together (released December 2015)
    • City Living (to be released November 2016)
  • I have the following game packs installed:
    • Outdoor Retreat (released January 2015)
