it's crazy how much it's changed even since the "new SIM." Sometimes I find myself going all the way back to the last page of forum posts and getting all nostalgic. Ahh! We all used to be so chatty! Remember when there were only like 50 TBS yearlings? Remember when the twenty thousandth horse in the SIM was a big deal? Remember crowdsourcing ideas on what equipment you should try based on running lines? Ohh man.

With debates over the value of gallop comment and such, is just me that sees the potential to reinvent the wheel here? :idea:

This was before my time but I love the old school SIM game look to it! Nostalgia! I do miss the days when Wings was the best comment you could get and was a wide spectrum. I remember though when wow/stakes was added and I was ridiculously happy that Under Red Skies was a stakes gallop LOL
