If there is one thing that disappoints me to no end is the lack of communication in this game by the players! What has happened???? Do players not converse with each other any more? Chat is always dead and the game forum is like a ghost town!
It is up to every player to support the chat and forums to build up the game and to attract other players into joining. More importantly, this is where new players can get help if in need. Remember, Simcountry is what YOU make of it!
To me, the community is what made the game in the good ol' days. Now I challenge all of you to resurrect the good ol' days. SPEAK! SPEAK! SPEAK!
I hope the next time, I poke my head into this game, I see some communication and bodies in chat! Don't make me turn mean and cast one of my evil spells on you!

Well I threw out some death threats. Let's see if THAT livens things up a bit!
| Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 07:16 am |
Well Jan, we could always revive the foundation weekly chat. 1st week went pretty well and then everyone seemed to find whatever rock they crawled out from and I haven't seen them since.
Chat time is 1PM Sundays
New York Time or Eastern US Time.
To start it will likely be just you and I. If we are consistent, at least other players will be aware of a definitive time when they can log in to chat and someone will be there. Can I count on your presence?
| Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 07:48 pm |
1 pm this Sunday and I will be there.
| Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 05:52 am |
I will try to be there. My weekends have been pretty busy as my mother is in the hospital. I'll support this as much as I can.
| Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 06:33 am |
Cool I look forward to it. It'll be like old times when it was BlueSerpent, you and I.
| Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 10:21 pm |
Yup. Those were the good ole days. Laguna, where is he these days?
| Sunday, January 22, 2017 - 07:26 pm |
I have not come across him in my Sim-Travels. I would imagine he is off vacationing somewhere... I'm sure his will to stay away from Sim will diminish and he'll pop in one day.
As for the 12 chat, I am there now. It appears some people showed up initially but I am very late. I had a weird few days.
Either way I am there now for anyone who wishes to join.
| Thursday, February 2, 2017 - 04:12 pm |
We will participate in any event or chat you would like to organize.
We are also trying to be on Facebook more often and answer questions.
don't know about Wicked people.
| Friday, February 3, 2017 - 02:42 am |
That's cool regarding Facebook. I just got on and placed a few comments on the simcountry page. Did not even know simcountry was on Facebook till now.
I showed up for chat on Sunday past at 1 pm and no one was on there. I have been in chat periodically and there have been a few more people on there. I have seen Yankee, taurine, jhinkk and aries on to name a few.
| Friday, February 3, 2017 - 02:47 am |
And speaking of the chat room -is there any way to indicate the time someone is on ?
| Friday, February 3, 2017 - 02:21 pm |
Thank You Andy. I appreciate it. I noticed Yankee is very committed to chatting as well. Explains things much better than I as well. I look forward to seeing you in chat soon.
I will try my best to keep the Sunday schedule. It is my most likely moment for free time. I a 4 month old now, which is why I have time to play again, but she doesn't always cooperate.
I am not aware of any way to find that out Michael. Speaking of wishes, I really wish we had entry sounds or sounds for conversation. Currently, there are some sounds for PMs but regular chatting is what we who hang out in the room waiting for others need to alert us. Sometimes I may wait and miss players coming into the room and leaving because I have the window minimized.

Life is very complicated for me now with my mother being ill and in and out of the hospital the last four months, so free time on the weekends is almost non-existent. If we can set some time during the work week, I am more than happy to chat. But know, I dun discuss game. I discuss frivolous topics like shoes and such!
I hope my son, Andy (my beloved Andrew) will come to visit. I haven't talked to my Wicked child in sooooooo long!
And congratulations, Wendy on the birth of your baby!
| Monday, February 6, 2017 - 09:16 pm |
Good idea about setting a time up during the week to chat. Suggestion - how about Wednesday evening say 6 or 7 pm. i am in the Eastern Standard Time so not sure if that is good for others from different time zones. Open to suggestions.
| Monday, February 6, 2017 - 09:18 pm |
We are in chat now, Michael. :-) My chatting would have to be during the course of 9 AM - 5 PM Central Time. :-)
| Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 12:25 pm |
Thanks Kiss... I am so happy to have her. Wanna know something crazy? For the third time now I am going to have Irish twins, I am 3 months in again wtf?!?!? Didn't know until I had a unexpected visit to the ER. Going to find out if it is a boy/girl in a few weeks. So I should have plenty of time to dabble. I will post picks on some of my country profiles. My eldest just turned 17/18 respectively. I was 10 years out form freedom with my (now) middle pair.... I could cry I just rest the clock twice lol....
| Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 03:26 pm |
| Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 03:30 pm |
I will try the chat from time to time.
I did in the past days and talked to myself.
I am in Europe (Amsterdam) most of the time. This is EST + 6 so EST 6pm is a bit late most times.
Today Wednesday will be home at 5 or 5:30 pm EST and try the chat.
| Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 12:09 am |
I'm glad to see that son is like mother. I chat with myself some days. :-) I will be proctoring an exam for 4 hours tomorrow, soooooooooooo I'll pop in chat tomorrow. :-)
I'm so happy for you, Wendy. I would love to see pics!
| Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 10:17 am |
I was there last night at 5:30 am EST.
not much happened.
maybe another day.
| Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 09:54 pm |
At least I got to see you!!!!! So good to see you, my son.
Players, you get thyselves in chat! When Andrew is there, this is YOUR time to have LIVE chatter with him and get your questions answered right then and there!!!! Just saying.. :-P
| Thursday, February 9, 2017 - 10:06 pm |
This game won't let me post. :-(
| Friday, February 10, 2017 - 01:31 pm |
Thanks Andy. I have my hands full again lol.
| Friday, February 10, 2017 - 03:52 pm |
I would say so, Wendy!!!! :-)
| Saturday, February 11, 2017 - 04:06 pm |
5:30 am is kinda early -though I am up sometimes then. Usually get on more like 8 or 9 am.
| Saturday, February 11, 2017 - 04:59 pm |
I was there at 5:30 pm EST
11:30 pm in Amsterdam.
I talked to Yankee yesterday on chat.
Ended up with two issues to check with the engineers on Monday.
I will try to be there more.
If there are any real problems I would like to get them solved.
| Monday, February 13, 2017 - 03:49 pm |
I'm so proud of you, Son. :-) I will look for you every day. Uh Michael, you are more willing than I. You will NEVER see me, the Queen of Chat even, up at 5:30 AM to chat. ha ha ha ha
Happy Monday, Everyone!
| Monday, April 24, 2017 - 10:45 pm |
Life has been a little busy, so I haven't been able to fly by on my broom. Just wanted to say hi and get everyone to chatting and talking to each other!
Wendy, how are you coming along wif the twins? If you have a girl, name her Jan!!!!!
Andy, if you are around.........my love to you!!!
| Tuesday, April 25, 2017 - 12:44 pm |
HAha, yeah I am doing good Jan and I hope you are as well. I just found out last Thursday, I'm having another girl so I'll check with my hubby for the name suggestion lol. I'm so excited but my son Isaac is disappointed, no brother again .. I hope to see you on chat sometime when you can manage it. I am going to post some pics of my ultrasound and my lil ones on my simcountry blog. I promised to write on it but have neglected. I grossly miscalculated how much free time I would have. I'm doing quite a bit now.
| Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 04:53 pm |
Wicked_Lady has a very good point, new players usually look for help from others. I am a newbie and came to chat room to find people to ask some questions but no one was there.
| Thursday, April 27, 2017 - 07:10 am |
Keep Coming Nara, be consistent. There is no way for experienced players to predict when new players will pop in to chat. I know Aries, Heisenberg, and Veritas have been there pretty consistently. You all probably just missed each other.
| Thursday, May 4, 2017 - 01:26 am |
Definitely agree that the communication that used to exist in SimCountry is basically gone now.....I've only been gone for 4 years or so, but so much has changed. Now, there is hardly ever a bump on the forum and the chatroom is pretty quiet.
Hopefully some of the old vets hiding behind new names might poke their heads out and say hello
| Sunday, May 7, 2017 - 05:10 pm |
I will be online checking in anytime throughout 24hrs probably at least every 48 hours I will check the chat.Don't be surprised to see me up at 3am whenever i have the time. I can be online anytime ^^bump x2 EC's statement.
| Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 06:14 pm |
You're having a girl Wendy? Me too, well to be more specific my wife is mid-late July. However since I've been eating like a pig, been tired, achy and generally more cranky than normal I'm trying to claim pregnancy too.
| Wednesday, May 17, 2017 - 07:03 am |
Wow you're too funny. I'm due Mid August, I'm not as excited as I was for the first. Both were unplanned. My oldest will be 19 right after she is due so it's like I reset the having no kids in the house clock. My middle pair are 8 and 9 respectively I was 10 years away. I'm kidding. I don't know what life would be like without them and I'm so happy I will be able to have little ones again. They are most pleasant right up until the moment they can really talk lol. Honestly I think being pregnant triggered me to come back to sim. I first started as I was pregnant with Alexa. My life slowed down just enough to really get into the game. Some players didn't understand how I could war so much but that is easy when you have bottles for 2 babies every 3-4 hours around the clock. Who sleeps lol? So I think my newest additions triggered me. I really didn't realize the coincidence until I was typing this post actually. Wow.
| Friday, May 19, 2017 - 08:44 pm |
I'm so excited for you both, Aaron and Wendy, and to think I have two chances for namesakes!! Hint Hint lol Of course, my first name is Lori, so that could be an option too! :-D
Don't feel bad, every one of my coworkers who have had a baby girl, I make them rename them to "Jan" of some sorts. There are 2 Annalise, now called Jannalise and one Anna Rose, called Janna Rose, just for me! ha ha ha ha You get the pic! ha ha ha
Told you I was the same in RL as I am in sim life! ha ha ha
Life has been busy, busy for me. My husband and I bought a new home and just now getting settled in. I NEVER want to move again!!!!! I'm getting rid of everything too. Going for that "less is more" thing. ha ha ha ha I never realized how much you can accumulate in a short period of time!!! hmmmmmmmm perhaps a yard sale is in order!!!
My best to ALL!
| Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 12:02 am |
My oldest is 17, we also have a 6 and 5 year old so yeah we're also starting completely over what could have been nearly finished. @Wicked Lady, our babys name will be Addyson, not sure how to work Lori or Jan in there, Jandyson? Addylor? Maybe I'll call her Wicked Lady till she learns to sleep through the night.
| Monday, May 22, 2017 - 02:19 am |
lol I'm so excited for you, Aaron. :-D
| Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 06:26 pm |
Holy crap. There are a lot of parents in this game. Even I'm going to be one soon.
Is it a coincidence that the war game has died out now that we are all (old) parents taking care of our little ones? :P
| Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 04:42 am |
Well, my kids made it possible for me to carry out war functions on a near constant schedule. So not in my case but it could correlate to others.
| Saturday, June 10, 2017 - 05:57 am |
Will you ever be back wicked lady on your broom! i need to see you, because i remeber you saw me in chat and dident even acknowledge i existed, you just brushed me away like a dirty hairball! i though that was really mean, ;( made me sad and cry you big meanie how can you not remember the barry?
| Monday, June 12, 2017 - 03:48 pm |
Barry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hello there! I'm sorry I just swept by. I must've been on a mad dash to nowhere!!! I hope to see you again soon! :-)
| Monday, June 12, 2017 - 07:10 pm |

| Monday, June 12, 2017 - 08:38 pm |
Well I see what I can cook up in my cauldron! he he he he
| Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 10:50 pm |
Barry, come join the SC chat or the SC IRC chat room. Would love to talk to you again!!!!
| Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 04:08 pm |
It was such a joy to see you in chat. I hope that you will join us more often!!!!!
| Sunday, June 18, 2017 - 08:34 pm |
I will join again soon i just have been busy with life
