Ah yes, those were pretty wild times. Whenever I felt like listening to some music I had only two choices: either go to a concert or make it myself.
Befriending and subsequently visiting someone outside your immediate circle of family required the sending back and forth of visiting cards.
And if you hadn't stocked up in time on lamp oil you were in for very dark winter months.
But we lived in the unmitigated confidence of being in the possession of an unsurpassable height of civilization, culture and comfort. We really thought it couldn't get any better.

Not entirely convinced that it ever really did. Pity you couldn't afford a gramophone (or phonograph if you prefer), though. Might be off by a few years, but they should have been available right around then.

Here's a mod which makes it possible to disable cell phones. I tested it and it works flawlessly.

Don't forget long skirts being uni-sex until boys were school age.
(I remember my grandfather telling stories of when he finally got his first pair of pants and couldn't wait to show them off to the neighbor who had been teasing him about being a little girl.)

Yeah, but not in the magical TV universe of Family Matters, Saved By The Bell, Married with Children or whatever it is I'm basing this thing on. And I haven't even seen 2 of those 3 shows so who knows how out of touch I probably am.

Yeah, I've been using that one. It's very refreshing to not have cell phones in your game, because it means Sims have to put some actual effort into keeping in touch with their friends.
