Game Description

The Sims (also known as The Sims 1 or The Sims Classic) is a life-simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts on February 4, 2000 for Windows, and July 25, 2000 for Mac OS X. The game only has a single-player mode. There is no goal defined in The Sims,and players must develop their characters as they go through different life stages. Characters which the player controls can interact with other in-game characters, develop relationships (both negative and positive) and can even start families together. Characters can also be assigned certain tasks to develop life skills, which enables them to progress in their careers and increase their salaries.

  1. Hello,
    I managed to install it good. Did the tutorial. But when I want to save it says “en error has occured” and the cursor freezes. Do you have any ideas on how to fix the problem?
    Thank you

    • I have fixed the problem by moving the folder in an another place in my computer (the programmex86 place was responsible I think of the issue as it needed authorization to make modifications etc…), but, now, I don’t have any sound. Any ideas?

  2. Completed all the steps, keeps coming up with an error saying “access denied, please log in with administrator priviledges”

    This isnt a shared laptop so there’s no other users so I figured I was the administrator, I’m not overly techy so I’m struggling with this lol

  3. Sup, whenever I try to start the “Setup.exe” file it just won’t open. Could you help please and thanks in advance! 🙂
