What will happen in 2013?

Much will happen with the website. In January, Simnet will have a update with new features. We will from January also offer downloads and whole sets of recolors.

During Spring 2013, the website will also get (besides new posts and pages about the new Simcity and University Life for The Sims 3) a new look and URL.

Instead of ‘thesimnet.wordpress.com’, the name will be as simply as ‘simnet.com’. This makes it a lot easier to remember the name and gives the website more visibility on search engines such as Google and Bing. I will also buy a Custom Design Upgrade to change color, fonts of the texts and much more. All together, this cost me around 47$, and I hope its worth it!
