    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    Well, we have a sea climate, so it's not very hot here nor very cold. Average temperatures during summertimes are between 17 and 28 degrees Celsius, while in the winter it can be around minus 2 to minus 10 degrees Celsius with some snow and ice. We do have quite a lot of rain, though it's not as bad as in Scotland. Just don't expect a long dry period and bring an umbrella when you visit Holland.

    As for fun places to visit: I know every tourist wants to visit Amsterdam, though it is not what I would recommend. Amsterdam is a unique city and it's nice to visit it, but it is quite different from the rest of the Netherlands. So if you have visited only Amsterdam and think the rest of Holland is like that, you're wrong.

    Places I would recommend are:
    * Utrecht, city in the middle of the Netherlands. It's smaller as Amsterdam, though as the same sort of canal system running through the city. It has a lot of nice bars and restaurants and it's a great place for shopping, while you are also near a lot of nature parks such as the Veluwse Heuvelrug.
    * Limburg, province in the southeastern part of the Netherlands. In particular the southern part of the province with the city Maastricht. It's a great place for hiking, exploring old mines, run through caves while paintballing and ending your day with great meales and special beers. It als has the Three Countries Point. It's not much, just a sign on a hill, but it is where the borders of Germany, Belgium and Holland come together.
    * If you're interested in how the Dutch conquered water and claimed land from the sea, either visit Neeltje Jans in the province Zeeland, or ride through the province Flevoland. Neeltje Jans is an attraction that tells how the dutch coped with the big water disaster of 1953 when our dikes broke, and how we afterwards sort of tamed the sea. Flevoland used to be all water, but today it is land with cities and towns on it.
    * If you want to hang out on the beach, either visit the westcoast from Zeeland to Den Helder, or go to the IJsselmeer, the big lake in the middle of Holland and of which Flevoland used to be part of.
    * Want a bit more of farmlife, then visit the provinces Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe and Overijssel.
    * Interested in our history as a trading country, then visit our 'Hanzesteden'. They are a string of cities, most of them next to rivers, that back in the days of old used to transport merchandise coming from Rotterdam to Germany. There are still a lot of old trading buildings left in the cities Zwolle, Deventer and Kampen, and most of them nowadays are turned into restaurants or hotels.

    And that's pretty much it. If you like to go out at night and enjoy the buzz of the city, go to either Utrecht, Rotterdam, Den Haag (The Hague) or Amsterdam. If you're looking for a bit more piece and quite, visit the provinces Groningen, Friesland, Drenthe, Overijssel and Gelderland with it's farmlife, forests and wildparks. If you like water, either stay next to the sea or go to the IJsselmeer. And if you're the burgundian type visit the province Limburg. There are a few zoo's in Holland as well as themeparks. Two of them stand out: the Apenheul in the city Apeldoorn, which is a moneky only park and where some monkeys walk freely amongst the visitors. And Dolfinarium in the city Harderwijk, which is all about sealife and where you can see dolphins, sharks, seals and such.

    @Nebula Thanks for sharing all that with us. Do you have any pictures of those locations for those that don't live out there? How's the economy out there as well? Is it easy to find new jobs or is it hard?
