7,000 posts, and a development team consisting of 6 fully dedicated
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 at TSOR and submit a development application at <Removed>

The Sims is owned by EA Games, and doing things like reverse engineering the components or even just using the concept violates EA's copyright. You won't get any help for this here.
