Please note I'm currently working on the new site. I didn't want to take the site offline though, so you can still visit it. However me working on the site while it's still online means a lot of the pages will appear wonky. But not to worry, it won't take too long. Happy

With amazing speed and high expectations, Maxis is having a 1x1 building contest! Our last contest showed us just how neglected the 1x1 category is, and we wanted to challenge the Building community out there to give us your BEST 1x1 tile. So, no theme, no holidays, no special characters and no bull. Just give us your best 1x1 tile.

The latest scenario from Maxis can be both easy and hard. In fact, you choose what sort of challenge you want in this scenario. This little puzzle from the ever popular, MaxisWaylon collection, should keep you busy for a while. Set your own difficulty and take on the challenge of your choice. You can find the scenario, Pick Your Climb, in the download section here.

You can download it from Beatz 4 Geekz, a Web site devoted to music for technophiles and gamers. Warning: it just might get stuck in your head!

Live large in your own home! Just like The Sims do, you can listen to your favorite tunes played on The Sims Jukebox. This desktop music player brings your favorite tunes to you, Sims-style!
