oh good lord. Another target. I hate this. And it's so....girly.

My French is pretty much limited to "merci", "souffle" and "merde"...if someone out there has mad French skills, PM me and we'll figure otu their donation policies, etc.

Not really that good. You can find the same quality or better at MTS2 and other free sites.

Actually, if you click on the pay sets it takes you here:

http://www.simsmag.com/set28.html

Which has english

To buy this content, insert your access code obtained by clicking on your country flag
Then it lists a 1-900 number that charges 5 dollars a call.  Nice.

EDITED to add: if you click on the credit card links, it gives you an english translation where you can also get an access code using a credit card:

You can obtain an access code using a bank card.



1 access code = 2.00 EUR (approx. 2.10 USD)

To use this service you must have

A VISA - MASTERCARD - CB
A valid e-mail address

When your payment has been received you will be sent your
access code.
A copy will be sent to you by e-mail.

No description of the site accessed will appear on
your bank statement or in the e-mail.
You will only be debited once.

The codes can only be used
on the site to be accessed.

Um...

holy fucking shit!

FIVE dollars just for the CALL? Is that on top of the donation price, or is that how they're getting the money? FIVE DOLLARS for a set? They're out of their minds.

My guess is that you have a couple of options.

One-call which is 5 dollars

Two a bank card which is 2.10 dollars or 2 Euro.

Damn it!

Edited: OR you can get a code using text messaging SMS for 4.99$

Obviously a credit card is the way to go.

I think you get 20 days of access for $5.00.  My French is like a fallen souffle.

It appears to me (using my, now, horrendous French) that the price is $5 per set. You seem to be given an access code that lasts for 24 hours that will let you download these (terrible) outfits after you've called the number. I'm looking at the set 5, "Allure" page for anyone that cares. Someone should tell them that people can get piles of poo for free, and that it is not necessary to purchase it.

Code Allopass valable pour une durée de 3 jours

Code Allopass is valid for 3 days duration.

I'm not that great with french, did it for 5 years but I seem to have forgotten every little bit of it.

This also appears to be some sort of story or following of them called "At the Office"

"Day after day, let us follow the journalists of Simsmag to the office."

is all im getting

You're buying a magazine? or content? oO I dont know

Ah, there we go, that makes more sense (the monthly payment).
 
I was looking at this statement on the clothing page: "Ce code d'accès Allopass est valable sur ce set pendant une durée de 24 heures", at the top of which it said "To buy this content, insert your access code obtained by clicking on your country flag".

Frankly, I'm not really sure how this crappy page runs, trying to fight my way around it and figure out where stuff is, is an exercise in frustration. I'm pretty amazed that you were able to find the pricing anywhere. I'm assuming half their money comes from people screwing up while trying to buy these "fantastic" outfits.

Heres the site translated to english by Google

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.simsmag.com/&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=1&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dsims%2Bmag%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:en-us

If you go to the bottom of the page they are also hosting a site called Sex Sims & it is also pay with the same pay system, Credit Card or 900 number.

Ah, Google translations. There's really nothing better or more accurate than "The blow of heart of WFP".
However, if you haven't checked the english donate page, every item on this page appears to have a different price and have codes available for different amounts of time. Do only kids that read English get the "fantastic" deal or am I missing something? By the way, if you really want it, set #28 "University" is "the least expensive!".  :roll:

For real fun though, I'm recommending reading the "Courrier" page under Redac. Even if you don't read french very well it's still pretty funny. Basically a load of congratulatory BS from "fans" (I'm assuming they wrote most of them themselves). If they publish yours you get a free set! I'm assuming that "Your clothes suck ass" in french probably isn't going to get me anything.

(Edited to add more jerkiness.)

From what I can tell (from the mangled english on that page) that subscription gets you almost nothing. What you seem to get is a "free" gift, a discount off of the clothing in the rest of the site, and a subscription to a Sims newspaper that can clutter up your inbox.
You get access to everything on site (the downloads, that is) for only 10 days after you've subscribed (and even this is probably only available once), after which you can enjoy your fine purchase whilst reading about fake people and saving a buck off of terrible clothes. It seems quite shockingly greedy.
