[NEWS] Tirnua: Luc Barthelet's Brave New World

    Not me, I'm not into killing (meaning not getting my @$$ kicked be 14yos)!

    It is truly great to see the team get back together, but realistically I don't think Parizad will be able to join the team. I'm not saying she doesn't WANT to, but she is much younger than those who joined Tirnua (Sorry Lee, Luc, et al) and probably doesn't have as large of a nest egg as the others. I seriously doubt Luc's new venture can offer benefits, job security, and other perks compared to EA.

    Not by me. Luc Barthelet was the person who tried (albeit unsuccessfully) to save TSO. He may not have been entirely successful, but at least he managed to extend its life by more than a year.

    No, the person who truly has earned and fully deserves the title of "the [person] who killed TSO" is Nancy Smith.
     
  4. As I have noticed about my web the past few months:

    TSO is closing
    Tirnua will open soon
    .Mac e-mail and web site service is going away
    Stratics got bugged

    Why did it all wait to now to change. Y Y Y >.>
     
  5. Life happens.

    The only thing that never changes, is things will chage.

    Katheryne, Nancy Smith couldn't possibly have killed TSO. I doubt if she knows how to find it.

    For TirNua, I am pinning my hopes on the simulation. If it is just a place to pin up your graphics creations for other people to look at, I will have no interest. (I never could understand how the creative types in SL and such could find anyone willing to pay them real money for that stuff, but I guess they do.) I see a lot of potential in an environment-based simulation, and Luc is good at that sort of thing. IMO, the EALand makeover was a botched job, but mostly because they had TSO to start with, not because of incompetence. I always wondered why they didn't start from scratch to begin with.

  10. We are all lab mice in a box whom want to have a party.
     
  11. We need to be able to sit down. :p

    Feet getting tired Amoreena? ;)
     
  13. Yup..I'm sure everyone's feet were. Too bad fixing the chat bubbles is more important than being able to sit down, according to Luc. :p

    Touché.
     
  15. Nancy Smith = video game killer?
    Video game = Nancy Smith killer?

    Maybe the game just killed Nancy and that's why EA must execute the game. And that's the end of the pecking order, because no one can kill EA except aliens. Big fat aliens...

    I laughed myself silly when I found out that one of the *townies* in Sims 2 is a Nancy Smith.....:loser:

    Ooooh, I did not know that! :blushing:

    I will have to find her next time I'm playing Sims 2. I have special plans for her! :eyes:

    I cannot wait for this game. Let's pray and hope it isn't a replica of Second Life. :danceb:

    There was a Nancy Smith in EALand the last night it was open, at Stratics Goodbye House. She was saying things like "what is this place?" and "what's going on?" and "I don't get it...you look like sims but you're speaking on your own!" We all took turns piledriving her, then tried to set her on fire.

    I just hope that the rules do not distort the free will of the players to decide when the parameters are too restricting. I also hope the developers leave wiggle room for direction change by admin folks if the game becomes unfun is some way/s/ unknown beforehand...

    Katheryne Guest

    I realize many of us here are former sims, and that many of us still have feelings about EA-Land's closing. However, this forum is for discussing TirNua. I realize some crosstalk is inevitable, but let's please try to keep this on topic, and continue any EA-Land related discussion in the Sims Online forums.

    Pahleeeeaze! Don't we have enough shooting killing hunting games out there??? Sims Online was a One-of-a-kind game and would love something similar to it - relaxing kick back have some laughs kind of game.
    Enough with the killing, :talktothehand: it's too depressing :bored:
     
  29. TSOTori

    TSOTori Guest

    Well, LOL, even if you don't find her, you can always "create" her and then follow thru with your plan :thumbsup: - giggle*
    This is what she looks like:

    And of course, let's not forget - her email addy is [email protected]*giggle*
     
  30. I am okay without guns. :gun:

    It would be nice to be able to piledrive someone. Without asking them if it is okay first. LOL I really like that interaction! A flame thrower would be neat. :flame:
    Has anyone asked for sharp sticks yet? :twak:
    I don't want to kill anyone. Just want to play with them. ;)

    hmmm
    Why is this smiley :coco: called coco? that is just cuckoo!

    Well if there are no guns in Tirnua we can always hope for dangerous pesticides, toxic waste and barrels of oil to spill. :)

    Not to mention, eco cops, tree huggers putting spikes in trees and green peace protester ramming ships......

    Wow...this could be full of combat! :p

    After lookin at these first pics of the Tirnua community center (that's what it is, right?)... all I can think of is the Stepford Wives! lol

    In all honesty, I'm keepin my eye on Tirnua and am really hoping that this will be the game that so many of us are waiting for. Only time will tell. I'm glad to see that Luc started his own company and I wish him and his team the very best.

    well, those pictures do feel old.
    It is nice to see this thread though. I hope users like the new simulation we have in Tirnua now.
     
  35. Wow, yeah, old picture! :roll:
    We need to update this place, as I posted ages ago in this forum! :p
