Erster SIMstarter NG Livestream am 12.10.2018 – 20.30 Uhr

Hallo Community,

ich will mich am Freitag, den 12.10.2018 ab 20.30 Uhr (CEST) an meinen ersten Livestream wagen und den SIMstarter NG vorstellen. Geeignet ist der Livestream für alle, die den SIMstarter NG bereits nutzen und der Meinung sind, erst 10% entdeckt zu haben und für alle, die ihn noch nicht nutzen.

Der Wunsch entstand im Forum EULEN AND FRIENDS (https://www.forum.eulenandfriends.de)

Weitere Infos zum Livestream und den Link findet Ihr hier:


I will perform my first Livestream introducing SIMstarter NG at 12th of october – 8.30pm (CEST). It will be in german but I am planning to do it in english later on (can’t say when). In general it will be possible to participate and ask in english (via Chat) – I will do the best I can to cover that.
