Surrey mayoral candidate Jinny Sims has said that if she and her Surrey Forward slate are elected on October 15, the city will get a 10,000-seat football stadium and performing arts center as part of a new arts, entertainment and sports district to be completed by 2026, in the Tom Binnie Park area of ​​Whalley.

This is the intended location for now. “It depends on whether a better location can be found,” she told the Now-Leader.

Sims said during a campaign presser on Tuesday that the proposed project would also include office buildings and residential towers.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put Surrey in the eyes of the world, an opportunity we cannot pass up on short-sighted politicians squabbling over decisions made over the past decade,” said Sims.

The performing arts center, she said, would include two theatres, the larger with between 800 and 1,400 seats and would be designed to accommodate “large traveling shows such as cultural dance performances, Broadway, musical acts and the like”.

The second theater would have between 200 and 400 seats and would be designed to “accommodate community theater and foster the development of professional dance and theater companies in Surrey”.

The Entertainment District, meanwhile, would include restaurants, “nightlife and other year-round entertainment.”

The soccer stadium, according to a Surrey Forward press release, would be built to “attract” a Canadian Premier League-style club, “ideally with a men’s and women’s professional soccer team.”

“This project will be completed in early 2026,” Sims promised, if she and her team are elected. “This will be the first project for a reconstituted Surrey City Development Corporation. We can create a process whereby the soccer field, entertainment district, offices and residences will be completed by private companies in partnership with the Surrey City Development Corporation. And the Civic Arts Center will be funded by the SCDC’s net return of investment to minimize taxpayer investment.

“We will complete this by 2026 to ensure we can fully participate in the World Cup. Surrey will be looking to host a national team at our facilities as a warm-up and training centre. Ideally, we will welcome the world through friendly practice matches and preparation for matches in Vancouver,” said Sims. “If Vancouver and its First Nations partners win the bid for the 2030 Winter Olympics, the City of Surrey will participate in the performing arts elements of the games. »

The proposed project has not been costed.

“I’m not worried about the cost because there’s also infrastructure funds available and it’s regional infrastructure that we’re building,” Sims said. “It will also be in the transit hub.”

Sims 4 players want EA to keep the game’s “Disco Swans” visual glitch https://cc-pages.com/sims-4-players-want-ea-to-keep-the-games-disco-swans-visual-glitch/ Thu, 29 Sep 2022 09:50:00 +0000 https://cc-pages.com/sims-4-players-want-ea-to-keep-the-games-disco-swans-visual-glitch/ Some video game glitches are so adorable they’re asked to stay.

Some video game glitches are so adorable they’re asked to stay.

EA gamers The Sims 4 recently found a visual glitch that causes the swans in a newly added map to change color, making them look like something out of a disco bar or nightclub.

Although EA has yet to fix the issue, many fans of the game are asking the popular game publisher to keep the issue in the game.

The Sims 4 Disco Swan Visual Glitch Details

twitter user @frostybreakfast recently tweeted a glitch in which a pair of swans floating on a body of water in The Sims 4 map of Tartosa gradually changed colors.

According to the video they posted, the swans can be seen changing from their usual white color to purple, blue, and then teal without stopping.

Interestingly, the swans themselves aren’t too bothered by this, they float around as they normally would.

“The #TheSims4 Tartosa swans graphic error i get is my favorite[,] and I never want to fix it,” @frostybreakfast said in his tweet, which has received 17 replies, 46 retweets and 601 likes at the time of writing.

You may remember that the Tartosa map is part of Maxis’ “My Wedding Stories” expansion pack for The Sims 4which, as the name of the expansion pack suggests, is mostly filled with marriage-related content meant to spice up the marriage mechanics in the game.

Since the Tartosa map is from DLC, like most content in the game at this point, it’s expected that there will be bugs and issues that Maxis and EA need to fix despite its release.

Let the Disco Swans stay!

While most issues harm a player’s gaming experience, with some even having the potential to crash a game if not fixed, most Twitter users who responded to @frostybreakfast’s tweet plead EA and Maxis not fixing the disco swan issue.

Game Rant mentioned in their post that the exact reason for the problem is unclear. This could be because Maxis assigns the wrong texture, or something in the game files or code is broken, and the color change is just a symptom of that.

Despite that, there’s a good reason for the call. The “My Wedding Stories” expansion pack is heavily marketed to the LGBTQIA+ community, with the trailer focusing on Camille and Dominique’s love story, per The Gamer.

As such, the disco swans could be seen as Maxis and EA’s support of the community as they represent the rainbow flag in-game.

Whether EA and Maxis will remove Disco Swans from the game remains to be seen, as the issue affecting them doesn’t seem to negatively affect the game like most graphical issues. However, if the publisher and the game developer agree to do so, many game modders could replace the problem in the game.

Best packs for a Rags To Riches challenge in The Sims 4 https://cc-pages.com/best-packs-for-a-rags-to-riches-challenge-in-the-sims-4/ Tue, 27 Sep 2022 13:30:00 +0000 https://cc-pages.com/best-packs-for-a-rags-to-riches-challenge-in-the-sims-4/ People love finding unique ways to spice up The Sims 4, and challenges have always been a solid method of doing that.

People love finding unique ways to spice up The Sims 4, and challenges have always been a solid method of doing that. EA recently started offering its own formal scenarios, but player-regulated challenges have always been a mainstay of The Sims series. One of the most popular is “Rags to Riches”, which sees you start with an empty lot and zero simoleons, and you have to build a life from there.


RELATED: The Sims 4: Most Unique Gameplay Challenges

With money and resources incredibly sparse when you start, there are certain packs that can ease the burden of starting with nothing. From useful gameplay additions to inexpensive furniture, grab one of these packs before your next challenge for a little boost.

GAME VIDEO OF THE DAY

seven dream home decorator

While much of what came with Dream Home Decorator was meant to be elaborate, it had a plot to give away in the entire Build/Buy catalog – 140 new items, to be exact. Of course, it will take you a while to play with the most sophisticated and innovative pieces of furniture, and the career is far from the easiest way to earn money when you start, but some of the elements accompanying it can prove to be of great help.

Naturally, a building-focused pack was going to be primarily build/buy-focused, and in doing so, the Sims team gave us some wonderful ways to get away with next to nothing. Can’t afford an entire stove? Grab a set of countertop burners so you can at least make scrambled eggs. Limited space? Bunk bed with a desk, chest of drawers or sofa underneath. There’s even a chair in this pack called Rags to Riches Chair, too – it’s not cheap, but we love a good nod to the Sims community.

6 outdoor retreat

Since it’s likely to be a while before you can build something resembling a real house yourself, outdoor furniture seems like a natural addition to your challenge. Outdoor Retreat was all about camping, and while there are more glamorous options included for once your young family has struck it rich, you can cover a lot of ground with the most basic items in this pack.

You can get a pretty solid setup to start with, for example, and without spending a lot. There is a bed for §255, which is uncomfortable, but probably less than passing out on the floor. For seating, there are plenty of nature-centric options that cost under $100, as well as one-piece picnic tables. There’s a very basic shower for §335, a cooler for §145, plus inexpensive, rustic decor items for once you’ve finally “got it” and can splurge on your surroundings too.

5 To live in town

While there are indeed luxury apartments available in City Living, they are far enough away for your Sim when you complete a challenge like this, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get something from the pack. In it, your Sim can buy used furniture in different ways. It won’t be the cream of the crop, of course, but it’s definitely better than nothing.

RELATED: Which Sims 4 Challenge Should You Do Based On Your Zodiac?

Used furniture like beds, counters, fridges and stoves have been added to the Build/Buy catalog. Plus, City Living has introduced festivals, and the flea market might just become your favourite. Head to the Spice Market district every Sunday for a rotating selection of cheap seats, lamps and trinkets, which you can sometimes haggle for less too.

4 Living in a cottage

Not only was the Cottage Living extension highly sought after by Simmers around the world, but it’s also an amazing addition for a poverty-to-richness challenge. When a pack’s purpose is to start a farm and live off the land, its additions are hard to pass up when your Sim has few other survival options.

There’s an abundance of new crops your Sim can plant and nurture with the Gardening skill (and help from the friendly neighborhood animals), and they might even grow into prize-winning giants too. You can even breed cattle once you’ve saved up enough money to care for them properly, and not only can you turn their possessions into higher-paying items, but you can even win prizes at the Finchwick Fair for exhibits. particularly remarkable.

3 Discover the university

What other group of people are stereotyped as being broke like college kids, starting life with next to nothing in the bank? There’s a reason people buzz about their time in college – the cheap furniture, the roommate situation, the amount of instant ramen they’ve eaten – and The Sims perfectly put it in place. work in this pack. It’s up to you if you attend the classes, but you can still use Build/Buy items regardless.

Can’t pay your bills yourself? Take a roommate, as long as you have a spare bed on the lot. Need an inexpensive way to fill your needs? Hang on to one of the cheap but efficient beds, mini-fridges or even the wall-mounted shower that comes with the pack. Do you have enough money to make your house feel like home, finally? Decorative items are inexpensive, plentiful, and damn adorable.

2 Eco-friendly lifestyle

This pack, as you might guess from the title, is all about ecological stability and finding a way to get the most out of the least. With Eco Lifestyle, your Sims can live almost entirely off the grid, becoming self-sufficient while also reducing their carbon footprint. Win-win.

RELATED: The Sims 4: Ways To Make The Game Interesting Again

Locate a dumpster and dive in to see what you can find, then head to one of the crafting spaces to see what new treasures you can turn your scraps into, either to sell or for your own use at home. Resell unused water and electricity to regularly reduce your bills. The Freegan trait is also useful, as it helps you find better things in dumpsters, and your Sims will even be able to enjoy don’t spend money.

1 small life

Your first property during this challenge won’t be very nice or very big. When deciding between building a wall and eating that day, making the most of the space you have is key, and the Tiny Living Stuff Pack encourages just that. And if you’re not going to enjoy a lot of room in your hodgepodge home, then might as well milk what you have.

With Tiny Living, you have items that perform multiple functions, like the TV-stereo-bookcase hybrid or the Murphy bed that acts as both loveseat and trundle mattress (as long as it doesn’t kill you). Not only that, but there’s a new land assignment that also increases your benefits of living in a small space.

It’s a sliding scale, but houses that take up less than 32 tiles are considered micro-houses, and they’re easily the better for your limited money. Your bills are reduced, plants grow twice as fast (meaning you can eat or sell them much sooner), your relationships grow twice as fast, your skills will grow even faster, and enjoyable emotional buffs like comfort and happiness are also doubled. . Since you won’t have much to start with when designing the poverty-to-richness challenge, it’s a great way to give yourself a head start when your Sim’s situation looks pretty grim.

There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding recent Sims team announcements, but the October release may not be what fans expect.


There have been some big announcements from The Sims team recently. The first is that since October 18, The Sims 4 the base game will be free-to-play, allowing anyone to dive into the world of The Sims. The second announcement is that a show will take place on the same day called Behind the Sims Summit. This will be a livestreamed event on the future of The Sims. These two announcements have the fan community buzzing, wondering what’s to come and if the rumor The Sims 5 will be announced. However, other factors regarding EA, as well as the announcement itself, may point to other possibilities.


The Sims 4 has been going strong for eight years – longer than any other game in the franchise with more DLC releases to match. It is the most accessible sims game to date, which makes it very easy to understand for newcomers. However, the last year has been tough for the game, with endless new bugs introduced with updates and added content – ​​many game-breaking games – and its steady stream of new features yielding little to no new gameplay. at all. Something needs to be done, and this announcement just might solve those problems.

RELATED: The Sims 4 Base Game Goes Free

The Sims team does its best to listen to the playerbase, even going so far as to hire accomplished modders to work on the development team. Given the number of complaints, it’s likely the show will respond to the outcry to some degree and perhaps announce a plan to create better communication in the future. This would coincide perfectly with the recent restructuring within EA to open up communication between the business and development sides of the game. This transparency puts the team in a good position to rectify issues with The Sims 4.

While it would be good to see The Sims 5and most simmers would say it’s time The Sims 4‘s age, he may get nothing more than a mention on the show if at all. The official blog talks about the future of The Sims 4saying “…our team is more dedicated than ever to developing new and meaningful The Sims 4 experiences for our players and we will continue to develop and release Sims Delivery Express packs, kits and drops for the foreseeable future. The Sims 4 content and ways to play will be discussed rather than a new game. Considering The Sims 4 was originally designed to be online, some type of online game may be involved.

A lot is still up in the air about what the broadcast could be, but the Sims team isn’t just making announcements like this without having something new to bring to the table. When it comes to The Sims 4, it’s always a good idea to temper expectations, as things often get too hyped up. Fans won’t know more until the date draws near, but there’s definitely something on the horizon, perhaps regarding the rumored Project Sunrise.

Bob Mackin

The campaign manager for Keep the RCMP in Surrey (KTRIS) scoffs at accusations that his group is breaking third party election laws by actively supporting the county. Brenda Locke for mayor.

Stephen Carter (Twitter)

Stephen Carter, Calgary-based campaign manager for Surrey Forward mayoral candidate Jinny Sims, alleged on September 22 that the grassroots anti-Surrey Police Service group was unlawfully colluding with Locke’s Surrey Connect party. If elected, Locke promised to cancel the new police force, while Sims promised to determine the cost of maintaining the RCMP versus the transition.

Paul Daynes of KTRIS said his group is separate from Surrey Connect, registered, compliant and open to Elections BC review.

“We’ve been campaigning for four years, we’ve publicly supported, in front of TV cameras and all the media, Brenda Locke,” said KTRIS’ Paul Daynes. “We run flags and events etc and many of our volunteers are members or supporters of Surrey Connect and vice versa. We are so mixed that it would be hard to tell where one person’s allegiance begins and another ends.

Carter said Surrey Forward is preparing a complaint to Elections BC, with evidence that includes social media photos of KTRIS and Surrey Connect campaigning together.

Keep the RCMP campaign going in Surrey with Surrey mayoral candidate Brenda Locke (Twitter)

“In a campaign where the current mayor is facing significant criminal charges, a second candidate has been convicted of criminal activity in the past, it’s amazing that a third candidate is willing to take these illegal liberties with an advertiser. third party,” Carter said, referring to incumbent Mayor Doug McCallum’s public mischief trial on Oct. 31 and Sukh Dhaliwal’s 2014 guilty pleas to the Income Tax Act charges.

Registered third parties must be independent of a campaign for a candidate or party or face a fine of up to $10,000, under Elections BC rules.

“This means that a third-party sponsor must not engage in third-party advertising on behalf of or with a candidate or electoral organization,” the guide for registered third parties said. “A third-party sponsor and a candidate or voter organization cannot coordinate their advertising campaigns.”

Locke was not immediately available for comment. Locke’s campaign manager Kristy Wawryk denied the allegations. She said Surrey Connect was grateful for the grassroots support and had complied with all laws.

“While we understand that other campaigns seek to harm these grassroots community groups for their own political gain, Surrey Connect will continue to advocate for issues that are meaningful to our community,” Wawryk said.

Jinny Sims (NDP)

Daynes called Carter’s allegations “sheer hypocrisy” because Sims is running with the endorsement of the New Westminster and District Labor Council (NWDLC). The labor group is not on Elections BC’s list of registered third-party advertising sponsors.

“What’s good for the goose is good for the gander and this is another case of the kettle calling the pot black,” Daynes said.

Daynes also denied Carter’s allegation that KTRIS shared his petitions with Surrey Connect. “I don’t know what he has to prove it,” he said.

Carter said the NWDLC is independent from the Sims campaign, with “no in-kind support, no coordination, and we have no data or access to data from any third party, including unions.”

KTRIS has been involved in two petition campaigns, the most recent in 2021 which sought to trigger a referendum on the Surrey Police Service. McCallum’s majority Safe Surrey Coalition created the force, with the blessing of the NDP government, after it came to power in 2018.

Elections BC rejected the 42,942 signatures because they came solely from Surrey ridings and did not meet the required 10% of signatures from registered voters in each of the province’s electoral ridings.

Although it’s been around since 2014, there still have to be people who haven’t bought The Sims 4 yet – and now they’re in luck.

On September 14, EA announced that the game would be permanently free on PC, Mac, and consoles.

For those who already have The Sims 4, they will not be left out. They will be able to claim the new Desert Luxe kit as a free gift, including themed furniture inspired by the deserts of the southwest.

Additionally, EA Play and EA Play Pro members can also access bonus content, like the Get To Work and Toddler Stuff expansion packs.

Since The Sims franchise has been around for so long and relies on expansion these days, EA probably won’t be too affected by this move. Anyone who gets the free version of The Sims 4 will likely be coming back to buy more DLC before long anyway.

“We’ve welcomed millions of players into The Sims and watched in awe as they unleash their imaginations, discover and connect with ideas, experiences and versions of themselves, both in game and in life. real,” EA said in the announcement. “Our community continues to inspire us with the billions of unique Sims they’ve created, the countless stories they’ve told, and the remarkable builds they’ve designed.

“Our team is more dedicated than ever to developing meaningful new The Sims 4 experiences for our players and we will continue to develop and release Sims Delivery Express packs, kits and shipments for the foreseeable future.”

You can also learn more about the future of The Sims 4 during the livestream of The Sims Behind-the-Scenes Summit. It takes place on October 18 at 6pm UK time via The Sims YouTube and Twitch channels.

Greater Decatur, Georgia — The DeKalb County Friends of Washington Park will honor Sadie Sims and hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sunday, September 25 at 2 p.m. at Washington Park, 2830 Arborcrest Drive, Decatur.

The event will honor Sims’ life and his commitment to the Washington Park community. The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners has approved a memorial plaque to be placed on a bench in the park, according to a news release.

Sims, also known as Mama Sadie, was born in 1915 and died in 2017. She was a pillar of the community in many ways and will always be a part of DeKalb County. In the early 1970s, Sims and her husband Jessie, along with their children, moved to the Washington Park area. She became a stay-at-home mom and community activist.

The Sims helped create Washington Park, which has become a community gem. Neighborhood families and children have referred to Sims as the “Mayor of Washington Park,” due to his love and commitment to his family, neighbors and community.

“Our mother was a phenomenal woman who raised, cared for and loved her eight children unconditionally,” said Doris Johnson, daughter of Sims. “But she didn’t stop at our home, she made sure that all the children in the neighborhood received the same love and care as hers. She was indeed “Mama Sadie”.

Family and friends in the Washington Park neighborhood will always remember The Sims as one of the community’s most influential leaders and contributors.
