    Smile La Vida- The Sims For Linux

    Introducing La Vida, The simulation game for Linux! Recently it seems like people want a port of the sims for Linux, or a sims like game for Linux so I made the La Vida Project simply aimed at creating an open source/ free simulation game. Let me know what you think. Since I have no programing sills what so ever I can't code but I figured maybe we could make a great game! Visit http://lavida.synthasite.com/ for more info. Also if you created/ know of a game like this please let me know in the comments below.

    Yeah that is a good idea, but I am guessing, that it would take a few years for something like this. The Sims wasn't built overnight, and I am pretty sure The Sims is copyrighted and definitely not open source. I don't mean to be a party crasher, I would really love to see the Sims come to Linux. But it will definitely take some time.

    Yes it will take some time, and yes the website is empty but hopefully it will be full soon. Plus I'm not talking about a direct port, maybe add a couple new features

    Lemme put it this way, No one is going to waste 15 seconds of time until you at least get a list of features and some planning done. Until then your 100% on your own. 15 lines of HTML is not nearly enough.

    Looks like there was some CSS in there too

    On the other hand, it's honestly a good idea. I would play it. Heck, if my programming wasn't so bad, I would help.

    get a scetchbook and start drawing ideas, avoid creating an exact sims cloan. then head over to the programming section, learn to program. grab Blender, learn to model/texture/animate, make a simple demo then people *may* take you siriusly.
