We really need an option to remove certain sims. Currently the only way is to go into Advanced and then put all of the 'install' sims into no action and then find the one we want to uninstall. Now, given how many sims are on the loaded, this gets VERY annoying. Please can we have an easy way to delete sims we no longer want.

Also, can we please have a tick box on the multiplayer saying 'have you set up port forwarding'. Simple tick box. It is a big hint to people that they need to enable port forwarding or they may not be able to host a multiplayer. It is an easy thing to forget if you don't do multiplayer that often and it just reminds you to check. Myself and a friend spent about 10 minutes trying to connect to a multiplayer before we realized port forwarding wasn't enabled.

It’s quite clear in the documentation that it’s required. I’m not sure punishing users by having to tick a tick box every time you run a sim because a small percentage of people don’t/won’t read the manual is the right way to solve the problem.

Seconded.

Not only that, some of us don't need port forwarding set up because our networks work differently.

Possibly easier / more useful would be to offer a couple of 'recents', both sim and game, separate to the main list. This would be especially useful for 'load a previously saved simulation' as that is the one you would want to load back in most of the time.
