* de-lurks for a moment *

Just wanted to let you know that I am very excited to read about all the new goodies in the pending Sim Tracker "v2" & can't wait until its official release. It sounds wonderful!

Also, I saw were you asked about any possible interest for a Sims 1 version of Sim Tracker & while this is just my "two cents" talking, I think there would definitely be an interest in such a thing. Contrary to what many folks may believe the Sims 1 fan base is NOT dead & is actually growing. (Thank you Sims 3 for being so crappy that you have actually driven folks back to the original game! With luck your new friend Sims 4 will have the same effect for both Sims 1 & 2!)

I dunno if you have checked out "CTO Sims" or "Active Sims 1 Sites" yet, but if that doesn't tell you that the Sims 1 world is alive & well, I don't know what will!

CTO Sims (membership is required but worth it as it is THE place for all things Sims 1)

Active Sims 1 Sites of the World
https://sites.google.com/site/simsoftheworld/site-list

I actually installed Sims 1 on my laptop a few months back & have been having a blast! Sure, it isn't as awesome as Sims 2 is (for me) but it's still a lot of fun & brought back a lot of great memories for me.

Anyway that's my two cents.

Can't wait to see the new improved Sims 2 Sim Tracker & am thankful that you are plugging along despite the *silence* from the community.

Reba can I make a suggestion for inclusion? Can you make the traits (like skintones and eye colors) neighborhood specific? And which tabs are visible also neighborhood specific? I had (before my computer needed reformatting recently) one neighborhood where I default replaced the skintones with a set of colored skintones, thus I had renamed everything with the new color names (blue, yellow, pink, etc.) and have no desire to see pale, light, tan, and dark under my skintone drop-down menu, but I need them for a different neighborhood (which doesn't need the colored skintones visible). Also, the colored skin neighborhood doesn't need a lot of the tabs (magic for example) but my other neighborhoods do, and changing out which tabs appear every time I switch neighborhoods is a pain. So could the stuff we change in the neighborhood options be neighborhood-specific, b/c unless my tracker is malfunctioning, they obviously aren't.

In another note, I can't wait for this next version. Everything sounds amazing so far. ~VP

Violet, Those options are currently User dependent, so you could make a second user account to do what you are talking about, however, I can make the lists Hood dependent in this new version with little trouble. In fact, it would not be very hard to make it an option, so it can be done either way (Best of both worlds). The more suggestions I get now, the better.

It took some doing but "Show Tabs" and "Sim Traits" can now be 'User' Dependent or 'Hood' Dependent.

Here is a new image of the Sim Tracker 2



The Notes Sections will, all, have a toolbar with "Save, Print, Print Preview, and Page Setup" buttons.

The Documents Tab will have a full featured (As full as I can make it) Rich Text Editor.

I thought that I'd be out of ideas to put in because Sim Tracker has already been great and I have already suggested a lot. I just thought of something. Could there be a way to place information about Groups as in for outings and such? I have never really used them much mainly because I never really had a reason to, so it wasn't something that I thought of. Today, however, I was just thinking, "You know, I could use the group feature that came with Night Life for... hmm... Sim Tracker doesn't have that. Better tell Reba."

That is something I can add (if not right away, then later), I'll need to figure out exactly what to do with it first though.
I've never used Groups either, so I am not sured how they work.

You will notice when I release this version I am making extensive use of toolbars, they allow me to do more things in less space.

I am having some major financial problems (Car had to have new transmission). I don't normally ask for donations via the forums, but if anyone can donate (through paypal) it would be very helpful, and greatly appreciated.

If my next test on the new Sim Tracker goes well, I will be posting it at my skydrive for beta testing on saturday (6/1/13).

I'd love to be able to help with the testing input, but my computer died right after I sent my email to volunteer to test. If you're still testing in a few months when I can afford to buy a new computer, I'll be glad to contribute then. If not, I'll just have to wait for the new version's release. ~VP

I have a quick suggestion. I've just had a sim buy up a couple of restaurants and with owned restaurants, you can plan your own menus, so mine have different menus depending on the venue. Would it be possible to have something on the business page where we could note down what foods a restaurant serves?

sushigal007, there will be a notes section for businesses, where you could place that information.

If you have Auto Notes turned on it will not overwrite your notes, just add to them.

It would not be hard to add an inventory page, however.

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that even though I just found out about this today, I'm REALLY excited for it! I have an overflowing 2" 3 ring binder dedicated to all my sims stuff and it would be nice to have it so much more organized!

I don't know if it has already been suggested or incorporated, but I know a lot of people do challenges for their games, would there be any way to set up various score cards in the tracker for these challenges?And/or even a 'random scenario' chart?

Challenge rules/scorecards take up A LOT of my binder space, because I like to do multiple at a time, or save them for a sim that seems appropriate for the challenge. I don't know how far you are with beta testing, but if you need anyone else, I'm willing to help.

Keep on keeping on!

Just take each day 24 minutes at a time... Unless you hit pause, then you could be there for hours!

When do you believe the offical date of the Sims Tracker? Also will there be instructions for slow (thick headed) sim players like myself to understand in simple terms? I'm sure it will be easy ti understand, but like I said I need like step by step guidelines and stuff. LOL.

@NewSimgirl2011: I'm beta testing the new version (yay for getting a new (to me at least) computer!) and I can tell you that as long as you can use the first Sim Tracker, you will have no problems using the second one. Most things function just the same, they just might be located in a different spot than you're used to. ~VP

The only problem @VioletPadfoot is that I didn't use the first Sim Tracker programme, I've only just heard about it. I know the shock of it! Lol. And I've only just been interested because I want to better track my Sims, so hopefully the beta tests will be fine and I'll wait for its realease.

Oh! Sorry, I assumed you had been using the first one. It's really user friendly. I suggest getting the first one and using that to see if you like it and all. Especially since the new one has an import feature. At least I think it does. I haven't investigated that yet since my old Sim Tracker files got wiped out when my computer died. But I'm pretty sure Reba mentioned it way back in the thread due to a user request. ~VP
