Thank you for everything and goodbye

After many years of running and hosting LivingSims I am now saying goodbye and closing LivingSims. My life has moved on from Sims. I do play a bit every now and then, but my heart isn’t in it in the same way anymore. It has been almost two years since we released the last issue of LivingSims, so I think it is time to close the site. I am planing to move the hosting of the magazines to my private website over the next few weeks and close the site down completely around new year.

If anyone want to move all our downloads to the Sims Graveyard they are welcome to do so.

Once I have the magazines all moved to my own server, I will of course put out a link, here, on social media and on the forum.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has helped put together LivingSims over the years. To our readers, to our donators and of course especially to the staff. I will cherries our time together always. But it is time to say goodbye.

You can find me at most social media as macthekat82 and you are very welcome to friend me there.

Once again thank you everyone!

  1. It was such a pleasure to work with you all over the years! I’m so incredibly proud of what you created, Mac.

    All the best,

  2. I’m so please to have worked with you and the other lovely staff of LivingSins, it was a lot of fun and very rewarding. I to will cherish that time always.

    Thanks for everything you did, Mac, and thanks to everyone else as well.


  3. I’m sorry to hear about the site closing, but I completely understand. I didn’t participate as much as I would have liked but I did enjoy the friendships built. As much as I’d like to be involved with the Sim community, I am also in a position personally that doesn’t allow much of free time any longer. It’s funny how getting older does that to us! 😉 I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and hope to continue to chat and keep in touch.

  4. Mac – your magazine was what got me into creating and sharing the game with others. As Declan said, it was a pleasure to work with everyone. You created something that the Sims community enjoyed and came together over. Well done my friend and good luck in the future, Mac!

  5. Thank you all for all the kind words. You mean the world to me! And once again – please feel free to reach out on social media.

  6. Oh how sad, it was so amazing what you created and all the hard work you put into it. I know it was long time ago when I was part of the staff, but it was such amazing time with such lovely people. I still think of you all and miss you all a lot. Sadly life had many bad suprices for our family and my mum passed away, but I’ve always continued to play here and there, even if not been part of communit a long time. All the best for future! Love Speechless!

  7. I loved this place so much, and I’m sad it’s coming to a close. Forums like this seem to be going the way of the dinosaur, unfortunately. 🙁 My time on the magazine was the highlight of my Simming experience, and I’ll always be proud of what we created together. Thanks so much for giving the chance to come on as a proofreader all those years ago. I hope I’ll see some of you LS peeps around the SIm world in the future. <3

  8. Mac – being a part of LivingSims was hand down the best part of my simming experience! I miss it, and i will miss this site <3

    Would it be okay if I host the old downloads on my site? I looked into the Graveyard and it appears to be abandoned. 🙁 [sims 2 graveyard has been offline for months and Sims 3 doesn't look to have been updated since 2016]
