The Sims (also known as The Sims 1 or The Sims Classic) is a life-simulation video game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts on February 4, 2000 for Windows, and July 25, 2000 for Mac OS X. The game only has a single-player mode. There is no goal defined in The Sims,and players must develop their characters as they go through different life stages.

Characters which the player controls can interact with other in-game characters, develop relationships (both negative and positive) and can even start families together. Characters can also be assigned certain tasks to develop life skills, which enables them to progress in their careers and increase their salaries.

The Sims: Complete Collection is an all-in-one collection that includes The Sims, all seven of its expansion packs in four CDs, bonus content that was included in The Sims: Deluxe Edition and The Sims: Double Deluxe, The Sims Creator and a selection of official downloads originally found in TheSims.com.

The Sims is a game with Windows and macOS versions but Linux didn’t receive one. Don’t worry – you can still play the game on Linux easily. Just follow our comprehensive tutorial. Let’s start!

In order to run The Sims on Linux, you’ll need Wine x86 or Wine-Staging x86, a x86 Wine prefix, DXVK, dgVoodoo 2, ESync, and some launch keys.

For DXVK installation you may refer to our very easy guide here. When you finish installing DXVK you’ll have to download dgVoodoo 2 from the official site. Extract the archive you downloaded, go to the MS/x86 folder and copy the libraries DDrаw.dll, D3DІmm.dll, D3D9.dll, аnd D3D8.dll. Place them in the game root directory near to the game’s exe.
