It's been awhile since I've even had a passion for the Sims of any series except occasionally playing. Then I ran across TSOR and have actually gotten back into all of them. From Sims 1 to 3 and now I've seen the following call for any developers to revive TSO back online with the bonus of being free. http://www.tsorestoration.com/forum...nd-best-way-to-help/page__pid__7733#entry7733 If you don't want to follow the link here is the bullet points. TSO Restoration is a non-profit organization which is restoring and recreating The Sims Online (which was shut down in 2008). TSO Restoration's website can be found athttp://www.tsorestoration.com. TSO Restoration's community currently has nearly 3,000 members with over 7,000 posts, and a development team consisting of 6 fully dedicated developers. We currently need programmers with experience in either C++ or C# (or both). We also need talented reverse engineers/packet decryptors to help us reverse engineer file formats and packets which the game uses. Presently, we need help with the FTP/patch server (coded with C++ and FTP), the update client (coded with C++, Win32 and various networking APIs), the Isometric Engine (coded with C++ and OpenGL) and various other things including format research and rendering. People with knowledge of Win32 APIs such as WinSock and GDI will be especially important to the team. Anyone who wishes to apply should either create an account here at TSOR and submit a development application inhttp://www.tsorestor...opers-paradise/, or email me directly at email@example.com I must say their passion for this project has actually inspired me to get back into all things Sims and I can honestly say I usually don't forward or press anyone into joining anything because I don't like it either. So please just consider this information for those interested.
