I was never a very active member of the InSIM community... I came around mainly for the mod itself and sometimes for Skye's custom Sims.  I play Sims 2 sporadically, and have been away from InSIM since the early fall... but with the release of Sims 3 (which I do not plan on getting) I came back to InSIM today just to see what's new.

And WHOA... the domain has changed from Insimenator.NET to Insimenator.ORG, yet I'm still registered, can still log in.  New layout, yet the forum categories are mostly what I remember, Skye is still uploading gorgeously looking custom content... but the Insimenator mod itself, once the main attraction (for me anyway) is now UNSUPPORTED, and Eric and Kathy are GONE!

After scouring the forums and some external links to find out what happened, I have to say I am appalled yet somehow not surprised.  The Insimenator was and still is a superb mod for the game - I still use it to this day with no crashes - but Eric and Kathy always seemed kind of sketchy, even nasty at times.  It was really sketchy, not to mention infuriating, the way they would disappear for months at a time, only to come back begging for cash donations and threatening to shut down the site, and biting the heads off of anyone who so much as asked about an update to the Insimenator.  I have to guess that people only put up with their attitude because of the mod itself and how much it brings to Sims 2... although it looks like TwoJeffs has updated his SimBlender to the point where it is almost as powerful as the Insimenator.  I still don't have that one yet but I do have several of TwoJeff's other mods.

Anyway, they say all's well that end's well, and it's great to see that the InSIM community survived Eric and Kathy's ditching and the ensuing fiasco with Walt.  I don't know how active I will be on the forums going forward, though I will have to at least check out the latest creations from Skye - I've always been a fan of her work!

Best regards to all Sims 2 players and creators who still call the InSIM community their home!
