Hi! This is ts1depot, manager of The Sims, where I host archived files for The Sims 1, as well as build worlds for The Sims 3 in Create a World. I have three reasons for starting up a Patreon:

Someone Asked Me!

Yes, believe it or not, someone asked me in the guestbook if they could donate. At first I set up a Paypal button but I'm guessing people don't like Paypal, so here I am at Patreon.

To Help Keep The Sims Up and Running

Once upon a time, I used to be able to cover the costs of hosting The Sims with Google Adsense but that ad revenue has dried up to next to nothing over the past several years, so I am basically paying out of pocket. If you'd like to help contribute to the site, please become a patron. 

To Put EA to Shame (and Show Your Support for Volunteer Devs Like Me!)

People have been asking me to keep creating new worlds for Sims 3. I positively love world building; it's all I pretty much do in TS3. The problem is that it's so time consuming (worlds for me take a minimum of 100 hours, tops) and I can't in good conscience keep doing this without being compensated.

It's not so much about the money but not liking the idea that EA has basically been using Sims modders and builders as volunteer devs to produce content for the game without recognition or compensation. So, by putting up a Patreon, I am hoping that anyone who feels the same wouldn't like to contribute a little something as a show of appreciation if they really and truly feel that my mods or builds have really added to their game. 

Feel Free to Quit at Any Time

I only put up this Patreon so people can donate a little something, so even if you sign up for one month to show your support, that's A-OK. Don't feel obligated to continue subscribing if you don't feel like it anymore; it's all about showing some support, regardless of whether it's a one-time shot or not.
