What is this?YABATS is, as the blog name suggests, Yet Another Blog About The Sims. This is a place for me to post screenshots, howtos, miscellaneous gameplay tips and tricks plus a little bit of news here and there. There are plenty of other sites already that are trying to be the everything encyclopedia of The Sims, so I don't plan to take that path (at least not yet).
Who am I?I've been playing The Sims since the first Sim game was released, although I didn't jump immediately onto The Sims franchise itself until about a year after its initial release. I have most of the expansion packs and some of the stuff packs from The Sims, The Sims 2 and The Sims 3. And before you ask, my professional background is in computer programming, which leads to my ethical standard of legally purchasing licenses to every piece of software that I use (and that's the main reason why I don't have every single expansion, stuff or download).
I welcome Sims 3 friend requests. I also randomly send gifts to other simmers on my friends list, so there may be rewards in it for you too. My Sims 3 profile name is Slambo, so send me a friend request!
