This is where we share shows and commercials we've made for our Sims to watch!

Making movies for Sims:

In order for Sims to be able to view your movies, they must:
  • Be an .avi file
  • Be no bigger than 128 x 128 pixels
  • Have a frame rate of no more than 15 frames per second (fps)
  • Be saved in My Documents\EAGames\Sims2\Movies\Broadcast\(appropriate channel)

When you share a movie here, please make it easier by doing the following:
  • Have a host for your movies. You can use your own webhost, or try a filesharing site. You might want to have your movies in .zip format, then people can right-click a link and "save as".
  • Describe your movie, including:
    • Title
    • Running time
    • File size if known
    • Type of movie: Children's, Workout, Commercial, etc.
    • A rating: G, PG, R, etc.

  • Still shots are helpful, but not required.
  • Anything else you think we should know!

The main purpose of this site is to share movies for Sims to watch. Occasional questions are OK, but keep in mind that isn't really the focus of the community.

Finally, keep the drama in the Sims. If things get silly drama-wise, I'll just bring out the banhammer.
