This page attempts to chronicle the major happenings within the Sims 2 Community since prior to and after release of the game proper.

Contents


Types of events

It is divided into 4 main types of event:

  • GAME, which is the actual Sims 2 game itself - EP release dates, Stuff Packs, patches etc.
  • TOOLS, which is any neat tools - SimPE, S2PCI, Hack Detectors, DDO, Q-Xpress, Meshtool etc - basically all the neat stuff people use.
  • SITES, which catalogs important changes to not just MTS2 but other sites too - when InSim was formed, when MATY was, when VS was, when it died, etc (this shouldn't be too heavy, just founding dates of various sites, maybe some milestones in terms of user counts etc)
  • MODDING, being when the first mesh was imported, the CEP Project, Repositories, first custom cars, first custom hair, etc basically milestones of cool things that have happened in the modding community in the past few years.
