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!
