Mastodon's newest feature, the single column layout, is now here on Simstodon! This should make it easier for people just migrating to this website. Read about it here:

blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/

We have updated our TOU slightly, to apply to the Mastodon Server Covenant. Also, due to the large amount of adult content posted here, I am considering making this instance 18+, and have temporarily added it to the rules. I am open to discussion over this change, feel free to toot me if you think we should remain 13+.

You can review the rules, including the changes, here:

How does everyone feel about the upcoming Sims 4 expansion pack, Island Living?

The Sims 4 base game is free for a limited time! You just need to install Origin and download the game before May 28th, and it is yours to keep! It is not a trial or demo, how neat is that?

Hello. It's come to my attention this site's patreon funds are looking a bit empty. This site relies on user funding to stay online, costing us roughly 12 dollars a month. If you can help out, please do so here:

The Sims 4: StrangerVille Official Reveal Trailer

youtube.com/watch?v=6CQ9Gccjs4

Start your investigation and solve the mystery of a desert town that holds a deep, dark secret in The Sims™ 4 StrangerVille.

What are your thoughts on this new pack? I love weird things and think it looks neat, but I want to hear your thoughts!

Our newest Patreon post is a bit of housekeeping about the site. It discusses how to 'get into' mastodon and promote your account, as well as a few other things. It is a blog post which is free for anyone to read, check it out here:

We had to ban a porn bot. Apologies to any users who may have viewed that content. Due to this, we have added rules to clarify this instances stance on botting: Sims related bots are allowed, but no others.

Not that I think that particular bot owner would care, but it's a good rule to have in place for the benefit of future, good faith actors.

You'll find the changes under section 3 of our rules, here:

:BobPancakes: : Look, there's new emoji on Simstodon.

:plumbob4:
:ElizaPancakes: : New emoji? But it didn't include the one I wanted!

:plumbob4:
:BobPancakes: : Then you can reply to this toot with suggestions of official Sims assets and renders to turn into emoji for this instance.

We also may take donations for vanity emoji, such as emoji based on your own Sims and art, in the future. If you would pay for that, let us know. And enjoy the new emoji.

Hello, Simmers! Just a notice that Simstodon's rules have been edited

The biggest change is an added disclaimer, clarifying that Simstodon is a fansite and not affiliated with EA.

There have also been some minor editing and cleaning up of other rules, but nothing which changes their meaning significantly.

Because it's the end of the month, I want to remind users of our Patreon again. Thank you to all supporters for this month!

In the interests of keeping things equal, we do not offer Patreon exclusive content. But running this site is not free, and I do need money to cover the costs of this site. Please help out, if you can!

A lot of people here are new to Mastodon, and might not understand the native content warnings feature. So here is a tutorial. Using a content warning will automatically mark your media as sensitive, too. Please use these for any NSFW post, or other potentially upsetting or adult content. Thanks, and happy Simming!

Hope nobody minds if I plug the Patreon again:

If six people donated $2 dollars each a month, they would fully cover hosting and domain costs for a whole year.

How? Domain + Security cost around 40 USD a year, or $3.33 dollars a month. Hosting costs are 7 euros a month, roughly converted to a bit over $8 USD. So 12 dollars a month would do it!

More than 12 dollars means better hosting and moderation. Check the patreon tiers for what this means.

Thanks for helping out!

We've gotten relay.mastodon.host working. Now you can check the federated timeline for general Mastodon content.

Other instances will also be able to find Simstodon.

Remember to CW your adult content, lest other instances may silence us, which would hinder our growth.

You can use to aid discoverability! Let's fill those tags, Simmers! If you want to.

Go forth and explore, go find some cool meme accounts or whatever else you're into!

Our relay to the Fediverse is still resolving! If things look a bit empty when you search for accounts in the search bar, or check the federated timeline, it is because this instance is very new and can't search in other instances until our relay is working.

Work-around methods will work, and I will let users know when it is done.

Here are some of the graphic elements we use, at high resolution. Feel free to use these images for any Sims custom content, or to promote our server in any way.
