TSR sister site sneak peak: Spore Resource

You have probably heard about Will Wrights new amazing game Spore - a game that really takes the create and share concept to the next level, namely the Universe. And of course the team behind TSR will support Will Wrights new effort with the launch of Spore Resource. We will start with a discussion forum, but the goal is to eventually provide all the features that you find on TSR.

Spore Resource and The Sims Resource share the same member database, so if you have a TSR membership there is no need to signup for a new one: just go ahead and login. And of course you earn Kudos points from posting in the Spore forums as well! :-)

Neue Zahlungsmethoden

Für unsere Mitglieder aus Europa stellen wir ab jetzt eine große Palette an neuen Zahlungsmethoden bereit. Neben allen bedeutenden Kredit- und Debitkarten bieten wir außerdem noch offline Zahlungsmethoden wie zum Beispiel Banküberweisung und andere lokale Alternativen, die vom jeweiligen Land abhängig sind, an.

TSR's Schwesterseite: Spore Resource

Ihr habt wahrscheinlich schon von Will Wrights neuen komplexen Spiel Spore gehört - ein Spiel, indem man aus einer Spore (Keimzelle) beginnt eine Kreatur zu erschaffen und Schritt für Schritt bis zur Galaxie mit seiner neuen Zivilisation vordringen kann. Das Team hinter TSR wird natürlich Will Wrights neues Unternehmen mit dem Start von Spore Resource unterstützen. Wir werden mit einem Diskussions Forum anfangen, aber Ziel ist es, alle Features, die ihr auch auf TSR findet, auf Spore Resource umzusetzen.

Spore Resource und The Sims Resource teilen sich die Mitglieds-Datenbank, das heißt, wenn du bereits Mitglied bei TSR bist , brauchst du dich nicht neu anmelden, sondern dich nur mit deinen Benutzerdaten einzuloggen. Und natürlich kannst du auch dort wertvolle Ansehenspunkte verdienen, indem du im Forum postest ;)

New payment methods

For our european members we can now offer a whole range of new payment methods. In addition to all major credit and debit cards there are also offline payment methods such as bank transfers and other local alternatives depending on your country.

Previously Featured Items

Every day we pick the best new creations published on TSR that day and feature it on the front page. Thanks to our new link "Previously Featured Items", you are now able to browse old featured items, easily finding some of the highest quality items we have here on TSR.

Neu: Frühere bevorzugte Dateien

Täglich picken wir aus den neuesten Kreationen, die auf TSR veröffentlicht werden, die besten heraus, um sie euch auf der Startseite zu präsentieren. Dank unserem neuen Link "Frühere bevorzugte Dateien", ist es euch jetzt möglich durch die ganzen alten bevorzugten Kreationen von der Startseite zu blättern. Somit ist es ganz einfach einige der hochwertigsten Downloads, die wir hier auf TSR haben, zu finden!

Submit Articles

Do you have an idea for a great tutorial or guide you would like to write? Now you have the chance to get it published on TSR, as we are now starting to accept article submissions. Please read the guidelines for article submissions here

Newsletter #11 on its way - configure your spamblockers

We will soon start to send out newsletter #11. Go to your Preferences to choose if you want it or not.

Neue Filteroption: Nur meine EP's

Ab sofort ist es euch über die neue Filteroption möglich, dass alle Dateien ausgeblendet werden, die ein Erweiterungspack benötigen, dass ihr nicht besitzt. Diese neue Filteroption heißt "Nur meine EP's". Damit diese Funktion richtig funktioniert, müsst ihr in euerem Konto unter Präferenzen angeben, welche EP's ihr besitzt. Wenn ihr natürlich alle EP's zu Sims 1 oder Sims 2 installiert habt, hat der Filter keinen Effekt, da ihr dann ohne Einschränkung alle Dateien benutzen könnt.

Newsletter #11 ist unterwegs

Wir werden demnächst den Newsletter #11 versenden. Leider ist der Newsleter noch in Englisch. Wir hoffen aber, das bald auch noch zu ändern. Wenn ihr euch für den Newsletter anmelden wollt, könnt ihr das in euerem Konto unter Präferenzen tuen. Bitte überprüft, ob euer Spam-Filter die e-mail Adresse members@thesimsresource.com zulässt.

Wie immer könnt ihr an unserem Gewinnspiel teilnehmen, wenn ihr den Newsletter erhaltet. Und diesmal könnt ihr euch dabei auch weitere "Ansehens-Punkte" dazu verdienen.

Only my Expansion Packs

You are now able to skip items that you are not able to use due to not having all required expansion packs installed. The filter is called "Only my Expansion Packs". Make sure to go to your Preferences and pick the expansion packs you have. Please not the if you have ALL expansion packs installed for Sims 1 OR Sims 2, the filter has no effect - in that case you can use any item.
