As someone in the game (who had it on higher authority) told me, we are not sims anymore we are avatars. Do I assume then there is now no such thing as Sims On Line, that the new revamping called EALand is comprised of Avators making it I guess Avatarring? So if we got a anniversary gift (simmie) it would be an avatarrer? I feel Ive lost my identity...and does this apply now to any Maxis game such as Sims 2 etc?? Im gonna dig myself a hole and bury myself can't cope anymore..
