Title: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: Devilfish on 2008 December 17, 22:50:43
Oh yes, I clicked New Thread. You may cat me to the full extent of your disdain if it is deemed appropriate  :P

Well, the GoSlings have one of these and there's a lot of awesome free items out there, as evidenced in the "Free Content Pwns" thread. If we're going to slam paysite crap, why not advertise freesite shinies?

Here, I'll start:

There we go, shiny steampunk Harley (http://sim-vention.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2110&highlight=steampunk) from Simvention. I've had this for a while and I still drool over it.

I have been in love with macarossi's irises (http://linna.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=195057) for forever now. I nearly *ahem* squeed myself silly when I saw that nymphy made recolors! (http://www.noukiesims2.net/tiny/index.php?PHPSESSID=oa4ros6im09fam7uhrhccu3391&topic=429.0) It's funny to get so excited about some recolors of a nearly insignificant item, but I really love that flower mesh.

I knew I'd seen one of these around here before. Went two pages back before starting this one and didn't spot it though, so I figured maybe it was time to give it another chance. It got me those pretty flower recolours in any case, so I'm happy  ;D

Here's another one I really love, the Ocean House Hotel:

I guess this is only really impressive if you've played the game, but damn that is accurate. I swear she got every little detail right (and I should know, I've played that game about 30 times, no joke). That must've taken ages to do. Very impressive.

They're by Arenia13 but apparently she took down all her stuff at MTS2 and I have no idea where to find her now. But they're included so you can always pick them out of the package I guess.

Okay, I am officially loving this advent calendar (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=438). It's got clutter! But it's better than clutter! It's shoes (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=445), shoes (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=450), shoes (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=529), shoes (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=540), shoes (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=551), and MOAR SHOES (http://kieda.net/wp/?page_id=566)!

I probably have them in my game through a file sharing session, I never weeded out.
I'm having a faux pas week, month, year. My mouth with my foot in it, let me show you it. Oh and whether Ren is pay or not is irrelevant, it's just stupid that I forgot where they came from. Research always sounds like the best idea in hindsight  :D

Rensims allows sharing the files, but still charges for them.  :)

I'd nominate everything Macarossi. No idea how I didn't discover them until just six months ago. His/her build items are ingenius. I especially like the decorative roof edgings (http://linna.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=185166).

Blacky Sims 2 Zoo is a paysite. Piggi's is not. Piggi has even allowed The Sims Cave to share/host some of her items to help with bandwidth. I guess this brings us to a sticky situation:

I have these ones here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=300198), here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=297734), and here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=296632), plus fway's awesomeness here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=307022) and here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=307480). I now officially have a ton of windows and doors, and it is freaking sweet!

Edit:

They are free, and that matters. If you think about it, MTS2 allows OpenAssJack and others from teh ebil soul-sucking place to upload free stuff (obviously intended to lure in new monies), but we don't hate on them.

Do we support freesites that support paysites?

Oh God, I remember the heated debate we had over this way back when in FFSS and trust me, once you start blurring the line and taking people's intentions and personal opinions into concideration, there's no end to the discussion. Pay is pay, free is free and that's all there's to it. We tried to have a bunch of categories taking links on freesites and such into account and it was such a mess, I really think it can't be done. If a site has no content that needs to be paid for in some way, it's a freesite. If it has, it' a paysite. I like the simplicity of that because I've been on the slippery slope. It's unpleasant.

Anyway...

Yeah I agree - I've often debated this when putting up links to other sites.  But while I don't tend to use freesite stuff if they support paysites, I don't think we can make a distinction on the "right type" of freesites - free is free.  It would be nice if they moved in exclusive circles, so there was no crossover, but we can be content to focus only on destroying paysites.

Missbonbon. That clutter is a jewel of a find.

I present one of my favorite bathroom sets: http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=241044

macarossi's been mentioned before, and is already a frequent topic in the paysite pwning thread, so here's just one of the classics again: The Pond in July.
http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=237912

Ren's Circonflex skintones:  (http://rensim.com/details.php?file=188)

Not only the skins look smooth, velvety and non-oily, they make even Good Ol' Face Template 8 aka Gorillaface Fishlips look somewhat comely.  ;D

I also love skins that are blended, smooth, and not greasy looking. Seeing as rensim's free status is up for debate, I offer these by the incomparable Anva:
(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w150/veggiedeggie/FemmePaleMediTanDark.png) You can find them here:
http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=4325.0

Also sans oil slick, smooth, just ever so slightly more defined and ALL FREE! 

And the fuglier Maxis face templates look good in these skins, as well.
I'm a fan of rensim, too, btw.

I have a really hard time finding skins that have a lot of shade differential, and in which the dark skin is dark enough. (I find it really disturbing how many Sims players only want pale skins, but anyway.) Those skins are nice, I'll try them out if I find time to darken the second palest skin, add a blue undertone to one of the darker ones, add more hair to all of them, and geneticize them. I'm picky :D.

I'll admit half the reason so many of my sims are pale because I am - however, half the reason is its hard to find good dark tones.  I use Enayla's because she has a good range.

I can't remember who had some nice skins as defaults, but even the palest skins were too dark for my tastes, while the darkest were too pale.  I like some diversity for my skins, at least among my npcs, even if I always make myself so pale [ or bejeweled and in fantasy shades, but that's a different story. ]

I'd like something like that for my game. I'd do it myself, but I suck at adjusting color.

I had the same problem I think. A while back I noticed the colors getting wonky where skins met hairlines or necklines, and such. I deleted the files, redownloaded. I then just made seperate folders for sets of skins, and deleted defaults, and something about the new organizing fixed it.

She also did some furniture to compliment the far east theme. I'm sure most, if not all of you have seen these:

I don't think neriana meant a blue undertone so much as cool-toned. A cool hued undertone would suggest that the light is neutral. Too warm, and the sim might look like it's gone mistic tanning, or is perpetually in unnatural yellow light. Darker skintones do tend to have a cool sheen to it in flat lighting situations.

Or, whatever :-\

I think a lot of creators now are uploading certain things to various places, but rarely all in one place now. I know a few creators have their own websites, and are members of certain forums and upload a few exclusives there, like noukiesim's forum. Everything else is kind of a mishmash so fans *cough* stalkers like me have to be vigilant.

dusdeedawn, thanks for the heads up about the new teen conversions! If it werent for Adele, Bruno, and ClubCrimsyn, my teens would be nudists.

I also love keef1973 (http://nene.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=223325)'s lots. My mom is a HUGE fan of Christine (http://nene.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=155330). She makes some really cute Victorian houses, particularly her Buttercup Victorian (http://nene.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=142589). She also has her own site (http://www.cc4sims.com/).


EDIT: Stupid Mheyin is stupid. How could I forget to list Illusions of Grandeur (http://www.illusionsofgrandeur-ts2.com/index.html)? I love you guys!  :-*

2nd Edit: I also love Sunni9676's ice cream parlor, Scoops (http://nene.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=243980). It's in every neighborhood I have. She has a lot of other great community lots as well. :D

I use that set all the time! I squeed when the metal shelves and matching fridge were added. I'm also more than a little bit guilty of using that kitchen set in almost every house in my neighborhoods. I keep meaning to use other kitchen sets, and somehow it just doesn't work out that way. I just rationalize it by saying that all the houses were originally tract housing and the sims are just too exhausted to renovate the kitchens. And the kitchens look great anyhow.

Its only been in the past 2 or 3 months that I stumbled into the noukiesims aspiration sets and I'm always drooling for more.

Okay, I've been meaning to change my default skins for a long time, now. A really long time. I just hadn't run across anything that jumps out at me. I have maxis-match and I can't seem to commit to any other skins for some reason. But after seeing these (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=8661.0) today, I'm so switching. I'm really impressed with the mannequin default. Looks nomable. Can't wait to see them in-game.

Oh, and I highly suggest that everyone check this (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=312004) out. I've been wanting something like this since I started playing!

She released a preview of an upcoming set.


I'm just in awe. I think she should hold classes on making and texturing for the sims. EA/Maxis isn't good enough for the likes of her, but that's probably a subject for a whole other thread.

Dizzy has one too, and it doesn't need the picture on the desk.  This may work better though as, at least in my game, the sim with the second assigned desk tends to ignore his/her assigned desk and puts it on the kitchen table instead.

V1nd1care was mentioned in another thread and I'm such a huge fan of hers, I felt the need to take my fangirling to this thread. All her lots are amazing and perfectly unique, but her ships are my favourites. For your pirating pleasure, I give you the Ebony Gale (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=172468), the Venture (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=228145) and the Corsair War Galley (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=188900).

But I think my absolute favourite is the Fallen City of Stones.

Holy crap those are beautiful!  I thought at first it was a photograph of a real bathroom, not a real Sims bathroom. 

I like that it actually looks like you can put together a decent bathroom that isn't huge.  Half the custom bathrooms out there, need  a 10 x 10 room minimum to look good.  I'm used to living in places where bathrooms are put in out of the way places and thus are either tiny rectangles, or very unusual shapes.

Good point! My bathrooms actually are quite compact as a result of using these objects. Which is more realistic in my opinion. I've never known anyone to have large bathrooms IRL. Ever. I guess my crowd just ain't rarefied 'nuff.

I've only known one person in my life who had a bathroom that was even close to what some people think Sims should have in their houses.  And they were fabulously wealthy, their whole house was huge.

That's half my problem with custom content.  I don't like huge horking houses in my game.  They slow it down and it seems ridiculous to have a house so big that your sims will need over an hour of their time to get from one end to the other.  I much prefer smaller houses, but a lot of the room sets people create seem to need a tremendous amount of space. 

That's one of the reasons why I always liked  Paleoanth's room designs.  Like the Lauren livingroom she recently did, it's small enough so that you can put it in a small or average size house and it looks just fine.

I have that whole set in game, I've been using it for awhile and it looks great. The bathtub needs a bit of space on the ends but other than that it's a very very well done set. It's been mentioned before.

I also have her Metro Wall series here (http://nene.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=288189). There're 3 different sets; a definite must have! Come to think of it I actually have most of her stuff.

Speaking of walls, Xtian at MTS2 has an amazing Urban Loft set. I use them way too much. Here (http://nene.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=292402).
Another great wall person is DaniKat also at MTS2. She has a whole collection inspired by Behr. I'm not a huge fan of double moulding but sometimes I need them and her colours are great. Here (http://nene.modthesims2.com/browse.php?f=380&u=171973).

ETA: Here I have screenies from a small bathroom in an apartment I built.

Yeah, and a lot of times, when I download a bigger house, the house tends to be full of excess crap that my sims will never use, with no room for skill objects or pets. Extra sitting rooms, randomly-placed plants...I usually just get small houses or download unfurnished versions of the larger houses.

I arrrrrgree, kenmtl - she is a great wall person! I use both her blue and green sets in almost every 'normal' house (ie. not old and beat-up). Love them! Very simple, very easy to mix with other wallpaper and such. Very well done. I like the moulding she's got going there better than the Maxis stuff. Om Nom Nom.

I hate that.  The first thing I do when I build a house is put in skill builders, or leave the room for them.  I admit to having converted a few "body building" rooms on first floors to temporary nurseries for the little ones, but once I've decided the child rearing days are over, and all little ones are at child stage or older, they quickly get converted back.

I like to have an attic for the purpose of putting skill building stuff up there so if I need to remove it for a bit, I can put it right back.  I also like to put musical instruments up there when company comes over, and then block the entrance with a chair, just to watch the visiting Sim throw a hissy fit because he/she cannot play the goddamned piano for money..

That is Yuxi's LJ, which has many lovely hair recolors/conversions. Yuxi is probably one of my favorite hair retexturer's out there, and I always check GOS and her LJ to see if she's done it. I've always loved how shiny she makes the hairs look. I guess that's because she uses Nouk's awesome textures.

She really is talented. Her base game messy hair for chicks is awesome, too. That would here (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=3933.msg118978#msg118978), if anyone's interested!

OMFG, FAUXHAWKS, I LOVE FAUXHAWKS! When I finally end up donating my hair, I'm probably going to cut it so that I can make a fauxhawk.  :D

Do I dare download more hair files? I've already got over 565mb of hair as it is. (No thanks to Nouk)  I love you, noukie!

Appropriately, as I was reading the last few messages, my MP3 player started playing "Hair" from the movie by the same name.   

I know, it's of no relevance at all to this thread, but I thought it was funny.  "Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer, here Daddy, there Mama, every where hair!"

Tim Curry was in Hair in London, before doing the Rocky Horror Show.....

And is that hair animated, by any chance?  It doesn't say and I'm super picky about that, for some reason.

The bench, the table, the curtain, the deco... I'm swooning. Cala, they're very pretty! Thank you muchly. Now I'm off to DL and quite possibly even fire up the game (20 minute load time) just to use them. Again, THANK YOU!

Hopefully this SA from TSR is never ever snapped up as an FA:

*Taking out the ghastly awful ThomASS site*

Tons of gorgeous maxis clothing recolours *drools*

Silly Anyerfillag! TSR is not a free site.
I like GrayDragonfly's items too. I really wish she would go to WNF or MTS2 to host her items.

I probably wouldn't have wanted it anyway, Anyer. So don't feel bad. TSR files have their own compressor system, which I hear conflicts badly with the superior, squee worthy (and free) compressorizer system. Don't cross the beams! It fucks up games, I hear.

I wouldn't know, myself. I made the mistake of using the free compressorizer on some tsr files, and learned the hard way that it crashes one's game. I had to back up all my files, delete the tsr files, and reinstall the game, and then someone told me about the conflict. I'm sure other people know the specifics of the problem, though.

Hm... most of my own stuff was salvaged from TSR after I lost my computer and it's all been compressed and it works just fine.

On my old computer, the compressor screwed everything up, but on the new one, it works great.  So, I think different computers do different things with compression programs.

I find that so odd. I've never heard of such a thing. But being that I know scant little about computers, I will believe it. My computer is getting a bit long in the tooth.

I've compressed hacks in the past, but then I heard that you should never compress hacks. Then I got rid of all my hacks but a couple that had already been safely compressed, so I guess it's an obsolete issue with me.

I've got the same thing going as littletoes: I compressorize everything - no issues. All my hacks get compressed before they go in my game. Everything gets compressed before it goes in my game. I have 30,000 files in my DL folder; I really can't afford not to run them through the compressorizer. Oddly enough, I have relatively few issues. Lately just one where some skintones were messing up every single hair I had - including Maxis. I was highly disappointed - it was really pretty skin.

From TSR itself or the Booty? 'Cause if you do your TSR shopping at the Booty, you're much less likely to have an issue, which is, needless to say, awesome.

dusdee, I had tsr files from tsr (before I discovered the light of EA's eula), and then from the booty. I'm kinda surprised some computer wiz hasn't surfaced to say "Ha, you should have burned an offerring, twirled counter clockwise and hit control+shift when you used the program on those files!"

Even so, I've been burned and I don't trust anything except bodyshop anymore and I only download from certain sites.

Damn it, I've got the wrangler, too. Haven't used it in ages, either, because I'm scared of some conflict because I also don't know what came from where. There are some files I've had since 2004

Lifeofpi, those are amazing. I've always wanted to have glasses like those in my game. I've found things that came awfully close, but never quite quite what I envisioned. The size, the frames, the little details- perfect.

my favorite part is that the glass is clear. Often people make it look like frosted blue. Frosted blue glass is fine for a coffeetable, but my glasses in real life are clear.

Ha! That's so great. I went on a glasses downloading spree a week or so ago, and I realized that the mesh for those glasses (this one here (http://www.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=253246)) is incredibly popular. I actually have over 60 pairs of glasses using that one mesh. Which reminds me, I need to do another purge sometime soon - hopefully before my game explodes. I did have a point somewhere... oh, yes. Those glasses (that I have and adore) reminded me that these (http://iltrono.forumfree.net/?t=30389347) ones use the same mesh, and they're pretty darn cute, too, if I do say so myself.

I also love just plain clear glasses. I remember being so desperate for glasses that I would grab some pay from TSR and they would just butcher the Sim wearing it next time I would reload the game.
You know what I mean, those weird blue glitches where the glasses would be either floating or cutting into the sim. Eech.
I am so happy I have free awesome ones to try! Thanks LifeofPi! (may I call you Pi?)  :-*

I love that eyeglasses mesh, but if I remember correctly, it is one of the ones I had to fix so they wouldn't flash blue.

I have the fixed mesh in a zip file here (http://www.esnips.com/doc/027f2038-5ffd-4167-a27c-5dbaf28ecd04/Glasses).  I had originally tossed up the zip file because someone had seen a picture of my self sim (http://community.livejournal.com/sim_spam/484403.html) and wanted the glasses she was wearing, which came from one of the Daum forum megapacks I got off of GoS.

But, anyway it's a tiny upload, and you can just toss out the recolors and nab the fixed mesh if you'd like.

I'm mighty impressed that you can wait 20 minutes!! I'm like a whiny kid doing the pee-pee dance when my game loads for 12minutes +.

I spent a good chunk of last night cleaning out old files. Who knew I had 4esf files still in my game? I've had stuff in there for years that I never use. I used simcat to  track down all the misorganized recolors of crap I don't want anymore. By my estimation I've deleted 200-220 files last night. After that, 16 new ones don't seem so bad.

It's a new day! I gotz me space to burn! Where be all the free pretties?

What is this simcat that you speak of? And where can I find it? Does it track down all the clothing meshes that I don't have recolors for, too? Cause I don't understand how the Wardrobe Wrangler and Download Organizer are supposed to do that - they never have for me. Perhaps because I keep my mesh files in folders separate from my recolor files?

The simcategorizer by simwardrobe. I keep forgetting other people can't read my mind  :-[ It does not find clothing and hair recolors, unfortunately. But its good for finding recolors of objects, which is great because sometimes I'll goof and put deco recolors in my build folder, or surfaces, and whatnot. The only gripe I have for it is that it takes forever for it to find all the recolors.

Holy shite! My computer would probably take an hour to load if I had that many! And that's with having organized the files and compressing them.

If you have trouble with sneaky cc when you download houses and lots, you could use the clean installer to import them into your game. You can see all the cc listed and check which ones you want to include in the lot. Or you could just click the lot slot and leave everything else blank (that's what I do).

I use the clean installer when to import simmies, too. That way if I like the sim, but it's wearing clothes, makeup, hair or accessories I don't like, I get to just keep the nice parts.

All my down loads were floating around all together in the folder. It has only been the past year I took on the task of organizing and going threw everything. But every now and then I will go to use an object I have not used for a while and find that it has a nasty recolor I don't want. So now I am more picky about what I put in my game and I have put things in my own collection type folders to find it all! lol

I'm not even sure if the first page has any content, but I'm still curious. I've left a comment in the guestbook about it, but the site owner doesn't speak english as a primary language and I'm not sure how often people check their guestbooks anyway.

You can see what they are and most importantly WHERE they are.

The xmas light earrings blink on and off, when the sim wears them, btw. AUGH! I've got much Adele love, it's killing me.

Adele's furniture sets make me vomit rainbow jealousy. Her texturing (not to mention meshing) is beautiful. Has anyone linked to her victorian-gothic parlor set?

Oh I know, I hate that! Especially since CAS is extremely laggy in my game. I've been sorting all my jewlery in BV categories with Wardrode Wrangler. You still can't see it but at least the CAS camera moves to the relevant place on the sim's body. It's still a bitch to accessorize my sims though.

After I have scanned for orphans,it always states that I have no orphans when I  know damn well that I do,took me a while to figure out that I had to tick the show ophans box, they finally showed up(136 to be exaxt)

It didn't get any better.

My problem is I will never know if I have any orphans if I use that scanner, because it always brings up the same, oh, 300 files or so.  That aren't orphans.  That I use quite often.  That I actually have pictoral evidence that are working just fine as of my last playthrough.

Criquette's Marina set is the best thing that ever happened to my custom island hood.  Now I just have to decide if the landing strip is on the part of the island that my neighborhood is, or leave it back on some other portion (and in my imagination).

I love those critters. I saw them yesterday when I was on GOS, so I got them and a few *cough*tons*cough* things. I haven't seen them in the game yet cause two of the lots I got from there yesterday had a ton of content from the booty used in it, but I didn't have it, so I had to go in and find what all i need and download a ton more stuff.

But my downloads folder hates this thread and me. It took me two years to get to 10,000 downloads. Two months ago I had a problem with something I downloaded, so I had to start over. So in theses two months I have gotten, let me check, ummm, 12,133. Hmmm, last night i just had 8,833. In less then 24 hours I got 3,300 more downloads, I've never done that much. The funny thing is that before my game was really laggy with just 10,000 downloads, now there isn't that much lag, but there is long loading times. And the best part of this is that I don't meet the minimal CPU or RAM requirements. But at least I will be getting a new computer after my parents get their tax refund, and I'll finally get to play those games I got for Christmas....

At some point, after I've forgotten exactly how tedious it was to make all those meshes into package files, I'm planning to do another batch. I just did some of the ones that I like this time, but I still want to do a couple that were requested.

You're welcome. Since I usually have 50-70,000 files in my game at any one time (currently trying to find the crash-causing problems in 80,000+, which is just as much fun as you might guess), I have personal incentive to keep the number of files required to be in the game low. I learned how to do master/slave at practically the same time I learned how to make a mesh, so it was easy for me to just make it all part of the same process from the very beginning. It's actually very easy, and I wish more creators would do it, too.

Here, here!  I learned that pretty fast too - can't remember what it was I first made that was slaved, but I know it was to a maxis object.  Just wish there was some way to go in and replace/remove all the hard to recolour stuff [like stairs and fences] with recolourables just like objects.

Don't spread this around, but *whisper* when I find my dl folder about to 'splode I go through all the cc and look for stuff that's old and out of fashion. It's easy to find things that I wanted at the time but never use. What's most helpful is looking for the stuff that's a bit outdated. (not counting my period era  themed stuff) Stuff that looked good in 2005 but maybe is not so flattering in '09. (why did I download those cute but clubby looking dresses in 2006?) It hurts to get rid of, but keeps my sims current.

I go through stages like that, too. I think it's like organizing one's closet at home. We have stuff we wear everyday. Stuff we bought and loved in the store, but never look at at home. And stuff that doesn't fit or look good anymore, but served us well in the past.

I've gotten a bit draconian in my download keeper mentality. If I'm not tempted to use certain cc in most houses, than I ask myself, do I reallly like it that much in the first place? Also I have a list of my favorite cc makers. Nixy, Adele, Bruno, Fresh Prince, Buggybooz, Blake Boy, Maylin, Anva, Macarossi,  Phoenix Phaerie, Noukie,  karaskaras, Sleepless Angel--- You get the point. Even if I like cc, it might just be a momentary thing, so I compare it to my ultimate faves. If it doesn't live up to that calibre, it doesn't get space. And my hard drive ain't no friggin' ark.

A whole week?  Wow! 

All kidding aside, when I lost my old computer and got the "new" one (it was used, but it's new to me) and I realized I could do multiple layers of sub folders, I became positively anal about organizing downloads.  I've got everything organized, pictures in the folders to tell me what is what, so I can tell what I use frequently and what I don't.  If I find I don't use it, out it goes.   I also find I'm not all that willing to download individual pieces, I prefer sets instead. And I prefer to download stuff by the same artists than to find a bunch of different ones.  But, I have everything all catagorized and sub catagorized.   I must have a hundred subfolders in my download folder. 

I realize that sometimes I spend more time organizing my downloads than I actually spend playing the game.

I'm the same way. I love sets. Also I categorize like crazy. But I only have 81 subfolders. Now I feel behind. :(

Also I yoinked those amazing curtains by Gelydh at GOS. That made for my 81st folder! Does anyone know what that chair is from? It looks like hek's work, am I right?

I'm a little OCD about my dl folder. I have 26 subfolders (i.e. appliances, seating, etc) then in just the deco folder alone I have 70 sub-sub-folders broke down by site/creator lol. I even have folders in some of those folders!
I have a 'go thru' folder too. I'm positive I spend at least 75% of my 'sims time' downloading & organizing!
Not sure where that chair is from (I know the pot & plant is buggybooz)

I just make subfolders accpording to the categories in DDO. It's easiest that way. Unzip, compressorise, remove duplicates with clean intaller, sort with DDO. I know it sound convoluted but this is actually easiest for me :D

I'd like to delete a whole truckloed of stuffses, but I' afraid I'll bork something. I download a LOT of lots andI hardly ever build one myself, so I'm afraid I'll delete a crapload of building stuff and furniture and completely gut my houses. And there's so much CAS stuff I need to get rid of, but deleting one outfit ingame takes about 4 minutes and I can't possibly find stuff in my dl folder.

I'm afraid I'm past the point of no return. The only option I have is starting all over, but I've got so much stuff from way back when and things I wouldn't find anymore, that's not really an option either.

Oh, and I just found this:

I'm not really OCD, just like to know where things are, when I clean out stuff.  I sort by creators, except for a few odds and ends, and those are sorted by where I got stuff from.

That used to be my dl folder on my old computer, since I could only nest folders two subs down.  Of course, when I started DLing stuff, I never thought it would be that much.  "Well a few walls and floors.  Okay, a couple recolors...oh, I MUST have this hair, and that hair, and yes, some pretty outfits and OH BOY NEED TEH SHINY!"  I think a lot of folks start out doing that.  Most of the folks I know who have well organized download folder either remember the days of TS1, or have had their game crash and burn and had to reinstall everything, or have spent hours trying to track down a bad package that was crashing their game.

Makes me look like a total messhead. I've gotten to the point where I have one called "eyes", one called "hair", one called "seating" and so on. If they're in sets, they get their own folder. Such as windows. Windows have their own subfolders if they are in a cool set. Floors have their own, walls have their own, but they're all thrown together because I am NOT gonna take the time to sort the carpet from the tile from the wood. Fuck that. Walls are the same. Hacks get their own folder. Some creators get their own folder, too. *eyes board creators* I'd like to thank each and every one of you for making my game load in about eight minutes time, from click of the icon to choose a neighborhood to play. I have three gigs of CC but what can I say, I get impatient for the damn thing to load!! :D And it's all your damn fault for being too damn good to pass on. Thank you very much, no sarcasm intended. :)

Good idea ooolongteadrinker:) I need to just make folders for my fav creators (a lot of them the same ones ya have lol ) that way it's soo much simpler. I truly need to become dl ocd so that I don't end up in the same predicament ::) I still haven't even taken a look at my downloads folder--but this may tell ya how bad it is. I have not played my game since beginning of december-due to a constant download spree. It has only gotten somewhat ok since I've been sticking my nose on the phorum! (not too long lol) Oh well lol  I think I have over 14 gb of cc-most of it just sitting there because I haven't even opened it. This doesn't include what's already in my actual game folder. Yeah. I'm messed up. And this thread...does not make my "condition" better. ;) As I have to get those curtains. *Sigh* Ok back to being sick.

I requested that over at GoS as that pretty much what I wear during the colder snaps in the year; I hated the fact my jean loving selfsim would either have to wear ski pants, skirts or nothing on bottom and just a long jacket and boots when it was Winter in my game. My selfsim is now very very happy :D

I know next to nothing about the fallout series, but if Yuxi keeps making awesome stuff in that theme, I'd probably be obligated to sacrifice an animal or virgin at the franchize's feet. Or at Yuxi's feet. I'm not sure anymore!

*sigh*
Went on a bit of downloading spree today. But in all fairness, I deleted half as many files as I downloaded, so I that's one step closer to quitting the habit, right?
Got some extracted FreeTime objects at emosims (http://emosims.org/2009/01/making-music-objects/), picked up the sweetest new separates at All About Style (http://www.all-about-style.com/), had to get InTeen for AL (http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php) (Yeah, fine, it sucks, but I miss me some teen-on-teen action!), and rounded it all off with the adorable new set from Sims2Play (http://sims-2.gameslife.ru/objects_sets30.htm). Now if you'll excuse me, I must go wash off the stench of shame that generally accompanies such a severe loss of self-control. There was more, too, but - well, I'm bad enough on my own - I wouldn't want to be an enabler, as well. ;)

psssst... whatever you do, don't look here (http://hapsburgxx.livejournal.com/40966.html#cutid1), here (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=9233.msg276645#msg276645), or here (http://www.clubcrimsyn.com/) - m'kay?

Actually, it is spring - at least by old reckoning :)  March 21 is the midpoint of spring [stupid weather frogs] unless you're on the south half of the planet, whereupon its the first day of fall with march 21 being the midpoint of fall.

Apparently they got somewhere with the AL Inteen, cause it is definitely there (http://www.simbology.com/mods/index.php?dir=inteen/inteenimater/&sort=date&order=desc). My jaw dropped when I saw it; I had been so disappointed when I found out it wasn't going to be updated.

Title: Re: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: dusdeedawn on 2009 February 02, 21:15:23
The Inteenimater is a pretty neato little hack (or set of hacks, I guess) that allows teens to do the WooHoo with each other, Y/Adults, and Elders (I think Elders, anyway, that's one I've never had the inclination to try). It allows teens to become pregnant, get married, move in, etc. and also does some other things, like add a 'biological clock' to every Sim, which says how long they have left to get crackin' on the baby making. Along with this, you get 'Birth Control', 'Risky WooHoo' (Meaning Sims have a chance to get knocked up even when not trying for baby), and Miscarriages (with custom memory). It was originally hosted on InSim, if I'm not mistaken, and then they branched off with their own site, then they decided to call it quits, and now it is hosted at Simbology. It really messes stuff up if you use the wrong version for your expansion packs, and because of this the creator was going to update it one last time for AL, but had a computer meltdown and decided not to start all over again (which is understandable, but disappointing none the less). I believe that others stepped in and updated it for AL, however, and for this I am very, very excited. Inteen also has optional 'Flavor Paks' which can be used to add, well... flavor. Read about it here (http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php/topic,1349.0.html).
If I'm not mistaken, Pescado very much dislikes Inteen, possibly because it doesn't work with a number of hacks. But, there's a handy little thing at MATY that lists what the FFS hacks do (here (http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,2086.50.html)), and the nice people that did those generally added a "DOES NOT WORK WITH INTEEN" bit, where applicable. The latest list there is for FT, but it is still quite helpful. Also, Inteen does not work with Squinge's Pregnancy Wear Any Outfit, but some have sort of worked around that. There's a thread at Simbology on that subject - read more here (http://www.simbology.com/smf/index.php/topic,2746.0.html). In general, it's a pain in the ass, but IMO, well worth it.

Many folks don't like it because of the teen pregnancy angle, it adds just a bit too much realism to something that is a game. Each to their own, but I don't want it. :D

I agree. My game's social dynamics are relatively simple: he/she likes me/ likes me not. Anything more complicated sounds more like work than play.

I thought about installing that but I'm afraid my game will just refuse to start up if I do..lol And it's ok bc I don't care about the teens in my game. Whether they gets theirs or not meh I'll still sleep at night. As long as my sim gets hers-I'm all good! ;) (sorry for the pixel porn reference..) :P But now I understand the program a lot better-thanks dusdeedawn!  :D

I actually like the birth control combined with risky woohoo for my adult sims.  But then, if I can't have most of my Pes fix's I might not ever put that in....not sure, because its actually faintly annoying to -not- have townies without generating them.


Title: Re: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: keirra on 2009 February 03, 02:38:13
ACR gives you risky woohoo, not sure about the birth control, though.

Pescado hates The Kitten Killer (Inteen) and will not give any support for game fuck-ups that happen if you have it installed.

I had this theory too...Until i realized that i had so many walls/floors in game that it was impossible for me to browse the build catalogue.I did a deep cleaning and now i have only some wooden floors,a few classy walls and some goth murals .Total:300 items  ;D


Title: Re: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: SoggyFox on 2009 February 03, 17:51:11
Almost all my custom walls and floors are ones I did myself.  Though I do have some that I converted for Plasticbox, since she switched to a mac and couldn't use homecrafter, and some walls that expand the K&B tile sets.

I ought to go and zip up some of the walls I made that I never use though, and put them in storage.

The other llink is actually from her old backup site or something, with different creations. The fixed one matches this red "windowsill" table.

Thanks for that one, I have a 50:1 object - wall ratio. I'll get awesome sets, but then not have wallpaper to match :-\

This gem from petschauerg @ MTS2 made my day:

Now my goth/vampire Sims can have babies and not have fluffy light colored cribs that mess up the house's dark theme.

When you look though these and then some of the paysite garbage it's hard to imagine how people can be stupid enough to not go for the free option, are they all on computers with no monitors?
I remember when I first discovered the booty (actually before mts2) I downloaded loads, then, after seeing the supirior quality of the free stuff I deleted it all.
I think I've added about 1Gb of downloads since i started reading this thread.
Sorry I've if started rambling but the stuff is incredible.

Even before I knew about how bad TSR was, I could tell that a lot of the stuff there, and other paysites was bad, and I was only 12. But some people feel that having to pay for something rather then getting it for free makes it better and far superior then the free stuff. How they logic works out, I don't know, because there is a lot of stuff in real life even that is better that either free or very low cost.

Most of the pay content I have in my game is from houses I downloaded off of free sites and paysite hairs re textured , again from free sites. There is one paysite that I do have booty content from, but its because it is such a great site, I love it. I wish she would go free.

This is one of my most loved objects in game. I think I mentioned it once in the "free pwns paysite" thread, but not here yet.

I use it in all mansions, museums, and fine establishments.

He's an outlaw who somehow managed to get into our hearts and lives after we told each other and ourselves, "No more than two cats!"   He started out pretty loving, but he is a baddass.  The neighbor across the street have a couple yapkids that bark at my cats in the window.  When Jesse comes to the window they stop.  Just totally stop.  Very cool, is our Jesse.

Growing up, I lived in a house full of stray cats. It seems like every time my mom said "__ is enough", another bedraggled, hungry kitty would be mewing at our door. One in particular just about broke my heart- my Jinx. I found this poor little barely weaned black kitten shivering in a snow pile outside our front porch, mewing. As scared as he was of me at first, he couldn't even run away when I approached him because he simply didn't have the energy. I grabbed him, brought him inside and wrapped him in a warm towel, and promptly looked at my mom ( I was about 16 at the time) and said "Can we keep it?" He looked at her, and one mew and she gave in. We then ran him to the vet across the street. He grew up to be a wonderful, friendly cat who fiercely hated snow.

You can't really blame him for hating snow, can you? I mean, if I was in snow and it almost killed me, I would never want to see the stuff again. My cat hates snow, but my cat is just odd. He hates a lot of things.

Cats are evolved for deserts - that being said, while some can function in cold, snow is another matter [domestic cats, not wild cats].  The wet makes it impossible for them to fend off the snow, and thus leads to sick, miiserable kitties.  This is also why most domestic cats hate submersion in water in general - they're not evolved for it.

Funny enough, we had a cat named Jinx who loved snow.  He'd run outside and dive headfirst into snowbanks...  He had a layer of fur that got pretty greasy, and we figured it provided pretty good waterproofing.

He also occasionally slept in the bathroom sink and played with the hose if someone was watering outside.

Wow, complete and utter awesomeness!  My download folder can't decide to hate you or Criquette more.  But me?  I'm happy.  What's a few more minutes of loading time when you have such nice goodies to play with.

Cat news?  I took Jesse James to the vet today for his annual. (Annual, not that other word you probably saw first, so get your mind out of the gutter)  He's in marvelous health and the vet was shocked with how huge he is.  (Not fat, just a biiiig cat)  Last year when we brought him in the vet said he was a year old (we'd found him two weeks earlier)  I said no, he was a lot younger.  He insisted.  I insisted by telling him that we were sure Jesse was a girl and had named him New York, then in the next week, the boys fell, New York had a package and became Jesse James.   The vet said then that maybe, just maybe he was ten or twelve months old, but life on the streets had stunted the hormones.

Now the vet is of the opinion that I was right.  "That cat is HUGE!  I thought it was going to be a smallish cat.  I guess he was pretty young when you took him in." 

He's got paws the size of half dollars.

Some cats have evolved for snowy conditions, look at the Maine Coonie Cat and the Norwegian cat. My Magoo loved snow when he was younger, so long as I brought it in for him to play with while he sat in the tub. Odd, strange cat and I really miss that scratchy meow and smooth motor purr. (Magoo was half Maine Coon, half barn, totally spoiled.)

That is the same thing my cat does. He will go up to me or my mom and ask to be let outside, and if its raining or there is snow on the ground, he sits and stares at it, then looks at us like its our fault its there. Just a few weeks ago we had like 6 inches of snow outside, and he wanted out. So I opened the door, he saw the snow there and wanted to keep looking (mind you, it was 5 degrees out that day). So since he wouldn't move from the door I picked him up and set him in the snow. He was trying so hard to find a way to walk on the snow so he could get back inside without touching the snow anymore. He fail miserably, and wouldn't look at me for a week after that.

Yes, but they themselves are descended from desert animals. Things like more body mass and thicker coats are superficial additions. The desert body design remains mostly unchanged as evidenced in their habits, and digestive tracts.

For example, nearly all cats regardless of coat or breed gravitate toward what most people would assume are uncomfortably hot places-- near a kiln, or a radiator, etc.

Their digestive tracts also absorb more water than other carnivores of similar niche. (that might explain why most people consider cat feces more offensive in odor to things like dogs or ferrets, whatever.

There are other more subtle signs, but you get the point.

Of course I forgot what I was originally planning to say. The embankments and trains are amazing. It never ceases to surprise me what the community members of the sims will come up with.

Usually for things that someone like me would never think they were even missing. But now that I see those things I wonder how I could overlook it. MUST HAVE NOW *grabs*

You know, I was just thinking I need to build a museum for my neighborhood and this will work out really well.  Thank you! 

Good luck with it! That was my reaction when I saw it on Ogularama. Shit! I need to make a museum for my game!
Ogularama does not get nearly the amount of love it deserves. If it did, I think we'd see more updates.

Yup - I've got acat thats some sort of snowcat - norwegian at a guess, and she's got thick fur, fuzzy toes - and if you get her wet she goes from sweet goof to terrified monser with claws and teeth.

They handle cold okay, its the -wet- that can still not only get to them, but -kill- them.

Magoo really was an oddball, then. He adored a warm bath with lavender-scented cat shampoo. I told you he was spoiled. Suzie will tolerate it, but she has to be really suffering from fleas or dandruff. Since we switched her diet and the way we handle the fleas, she's not needed one for some time. High-quality diet = less dandruff/NO dandruff and high quality coat, among other things.

My kitty loves water.  She plays in the tub and will keep looking at the faucet until someone turns it on for her.  She bites at it coming down, drinks it, lets it splash on her head, chases the water down the drain, and then gets upset if you turn it off too soon.  She's deaf, and can't hear the water running or realize just how much noise she makes banging around the tub, so that might be why she likes it so much.  She also likes to catch snowflakes and raindrops.

I believe it has, I've copied the FAQ:

Quote from: ogurlarama
   Policy of use of our downloads:

You are freely allowed to recolour my meshes and place them on your site, however there are some guidelines I wish you to agree to:

- They are not allowed to be put on any pay site, or put up as member downloads.

- Please don't upload the meshes to The Sims Exchange.

- Wherever you use the recolour or mesh on your site, please link back to this site with proper credit to Ogularama or ogula.

These are very basic guidelines and I hope that you can still enjoy the objects and the new recolours you create, if you're actually able to recolour mine ;)

Unless I'm reading this wrong, it looks like lots are okay as long as you don't load them to a paysite or to exchange.

Cats and water.  I bought a dome fountain for my cats to drink out of.  Best 30 bucks I ever spent.  They drink twice as much water than they did before.  And, they amuse themselves at times by smacking at the dome, which in turn, amuses us.

My cat hates being put in water. The last time me and my mom had to give him a bath, he tried to climb up the kitchen curtains. But he loves to drink it. If we have a bowl of cereal or my mom drinks those specialty coffees (the ones you just add the powder to water). and when she is done if she puts the cup in the sink and fills it with water, the cat will get in the sink and drink that. He has tried to play with water coming out of a faucet, but everytime he bats at it, his paw gets wet. So he runs away, then comes back in 20 minuets when the faucet is back on.

My Siamese, Leica used to sit on the edge of the bathtub while I was bathing - why should a bath stop me from petting her, right? - most of the time her tail would end up in the water, just floating along, soaking wet, but she never seemed to notice. She went to the great litterbox in the sky about three years ago. One of the cats we have now, Hannibal, likes to drink my bathwater.

My first cat, Juicy, he didn't mind the water that much, if he chose to go in it. He jumped in the bath tub once, and didn't mind being out in the rain. We would let him out every night and when my mom went to work (4am) he would be at the back door waiting to be let in so he could eat, and he always left her a little present, the back half of a mouse. But he ended up eating a rat that was poisoned, so we lost him, man, 8 almost 9 years ago now.

I've used them. They look great in game. Unfortunately I don't know about clipping. I assume you mean if a sim walks or stands too close that it'll cover their heads or something?

Aw, bull. His is only generic if you're comfortable calling your mom a he. If it's so generic, why does that feel weird? BECAUSE IT'S NOT GENERIC.


Amen, I say.

SoggyFox, the boxes work wonders for posing sims to be painted. In one of my familys, once they have their golden anniversary, the couple gets their picture painted, and the boxes really helped getting them in the right poses for the paintings.

Poseboxes are for picture-taking only, they're no good for gameplay. To pose sims there's so much fiddling around with OMSPs, the invisible tray, pose boxes and so on that it's not even funny anymore. It'd really mess up gameplay too, because most pose boxes I've seen (especially the asian-made ones) lock a sim in place untill the pose is deactivated.
So yeah, pretty much useless for people who aren't into picture-taking, but a godsend for those who are.

By the way, check out the 'Asian sites and other' (or whatever it's called) in the sharing area at Simscave. There's at least 20 different pose boxes there and some of them are ridiculously good.

most pose boxes I've seen (especially the asian-made ones) lock a sim in place untill the pose is deactivated.


So they work like using the poses in the game?  Meaning, that if you order them to do a pose, they hold it until you actually have to cancel the action before they will stop?

You know, I thought there was something familiar about this lot. The one with the photos from 22 August 2008. below.

Pretty beach lot!

The idea of copying someone's house doesn't bother me, but the person who did the second one, should have given credit.  "This house was inspired by this house done by ______  here's a link to their site." 

I used to make houses based on modeling plans I found on the net.  If I had ever posted them, I would have linked the site plans, just in case someone else found the same plans I did and make something very similar first.  But that house has a pretty unique shape, unless it's from a houseplan it's obviously a copy.

I wonder what the layout looks like inside of each of them.

Poseboxes are for picture-taking only, they're no good for gameplay. To pose sims there's so much fiddling around with OMSPs, the invisible tray, pose boxes and so on that it's not even funny anymore. It'd really mess up gameplay too, because most pose boxes I've seen (especially the asian-made ones) lock a sim in place untill the pose is deactivated.
So yeah, pretty much useless for people who aren't into picture-taking, but a godsend for those who are.

By the way, check out the 'Asian sites and other' (or whatever it's called) in the sharing area at Simscave. There's at least 20 different pose boxes there and some of them are ridiculously good.

Oh yes I know. But like Soggy said, it will make painting portraits a lot easier. Plus I will admit I snap photos of my favorite simmies so posebox just seems like a win win to me.

I'm guessing that is what they mean.

I will admit, I'm not a fan restrictive TOU's, but blatant stealing is another. Just like there was another artist who is stealing Viviane's clothing and reposting them to TSR.

Well, there's 'inspired by' and then there's just slapping on a new wallpaper and calling it your own. I think that's just as bad as taking a mesh, slapping on a new textures and calling the result your own.

I've had the houselan thing happen to me - thought someone had uploaded my own lot, but once i downloaded it, saw we'd modified it our own ways, so I calmed down :).

There are a few more differences to these two houses, in the roof, but considering the fence is identical, and the landscaping not much different, I'd have to agree this looks like a stolen house.  Would love to see floor plans to know for sure though.

There are so many house plans out there, why would anyone feel the need to rip off someone else's? That's pretty lame. Particularly when the end result is worse than the first. Perhaps someone should download both and take a snappy or two of the floor plans. [Not It!]

So, has anyone seen CTNutmegger's new cabinets? They're looking snazzy, fer shur!

 I could not find the original house on that site either to compare. BUt I am going to assume it will be pretty darn close if not the same. Maybe some different furniture.

 The only time I ever reuploaded a lot was one I downloaded that looked good outside but I hated the inside. I totally changed the inside layout and re did the landscaping, it barely looked like the same house on the outside and it was not the same inside at all.

ETA: Ok ouch! That lot is closing  in on 60mb. The layouts are in fact different. The TSR one has more rooms added upstairs also(admittedly not a bad choice). However, after shrinking the beach house I slid them together and found a perfect match with the placement on the lot. Coincidence? Possibly but not likely.

Also this is FAIL!

Well, I'm going to copy that house for personal use--can't get the smaller beach lots to work in my game  :'(.  But even if I were to re-post it (not planing on it) I wouldn't be telling folks it's my original work, and I certainly wouldn't post it on a stinking paysite to help pad my wallet and help Thomas furnish his new house. 

edt - What I'm trying to say (poorly) is that it's not uncommon for someone to copy someone else's house, for one reason or another; but to take that copy and put it up for download somewhere, under your own name with no credit given, and for pay on top of that, is just low.

I seriously live through my sims, I think that's a big part of the attraction of the game. They have the whacky colourful manors that defy the laws of physics and hair that would render you blind if you looked directly at it, they have the best jobs and motherload to back them up, they hang with aliens and werwolves and are able to afford to keep the whacky clothes/makeup/hair combo that I can't have, and all their friends and family are attractive and nice, or simply fade out guilt-free if they aren't up to their standards.

Yup.

Although, once a Sim grows up, can't you also grow up a townie as well?  I know it doesn't work on the baby to toddler to child, but if it works on child to teen, teen to adult, she might actually be more useful.  I'm just too used to doing a "Move objects on" and deleting her the moment she steps her smug little face out of the bus.

The only one who's close to her in annoyance is Sophie, but at least she does something funny once in awhile.  Like invite herself for dinner (fine) then proceed to fart all over the host, then to pester the hell out of the host's kid.  I always figured if they had a "bully" aspiration, she'd fit it perfectly.

Yes, I think growing up townies came with one of the expansions. I was all fall-over-tripping in love with it for about two seconds, until I realized that they don't die of old age. The prospect of my neighborhoods teeming with ugly elder townies sort of turned me off of that feature. I still like it, of course, but the spark is just... not there anymore. It is dead useful if you want a teenager's crush to grow up with him/her. I haven't had a good look at Marsha's face in a while, so I guess I'll do that before I decide whether or not to kill her.

Till I got my new hard-drive I was sharing my son's pc so I had trimmed my cc folder down a lot (was actually trying to keep it less than 1GB) and have gotten used to keeping it trimmed down a bit, but I have a feeling it is going to be growing again now that I have my pc back up & running. All I left on his was my absolute favorite things, the things I have made & a few things that are no longer easily available. I have this weird habit of constantly trimming my folders tho  :P

Post by: dusdeedawn on 2009 March 05, 19:49:18
I think the difference is that while some of her other sets had one or two thongs, or only thongs & bra, or perhaps non-thongs and garters, this one has a nice, healthy amount of thongs and thongs + garters. Still, though, it's not even close to 'porn', 'smut', or 'racy'. I think it's rather tasteful, along with every other set she's done. Quite talented, that Bruno!

Okay, so none of these are new or recently updated, but I did read this whole thread (thank you so very much for pointing me to some new sites and creators) and did a forum search and it appears no one has mentioned CokeBuilder's houses.  They are really gorgeous and aren't bogged down with tons and tons of cc.

http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=671691 (http://www.modthesims2.com/member.php?u=671691)

And if anyone knows of some nice eyeshadows (dark, light, in between) that have little or no shadow underneath the eye, please share!  For some reason, that really bugs me.  I've been resorting to blacking that part out on the alphas, but I'm not real swift with the paintbrush.

CokeBuilder does do good houses.

And if you can find any of Heleane's cosmetics, her eyeshadows are pretty nice, and she does have eyeliner that does just the upper lashes.

This is one of my favorite houses in my game.  I love the challenge of having a Sim family with little money gradually turn their crappy house into a beautiful home.  Mostly because I've downloaded so many beautiful things that don't cost much in game, that it's not a real challenge to create a beautiful home on little money anymore.

MTS2's downloads won't be available again til the 12th!

But I can wait.... I love that derelict house.

How creepily ... topical of that lot. According to something I read on either MSN Money or Yahoo, suburbs are going to be the new slums-- with unsold houses gathering weeds, squatters, and people selling their homes quickly to unsavory types. (The gist of it is that its smarter to rent than buy) ANYWAY...

I never know quite how to feel when real life creeps into my game but I think I'll make an exception for aelflaed

I think with the sad state of things right now - we're going to be forced to adopt a more community atmosphere.  Right now, in my neighborhood, no one talks to one another - but it's totally true - we have several foreclosed homes on our block & maybe we could all pitch in and do the yards from time to time.  I don't know - maybe that's why I like poor challenges & the Broke family so much - success stories!!   :)

Sims is total escapism for me - in real life, I can't go to work in a helicopter or name my kids Count Chocula & Frankenberry.  heh

Thanks for the note on MTS2! - I'm going to be in a dark corner, slowly rocking back & forth until they come back.

Yeah.  I'm lucky, got some good neighbors.  Like the kid across the street torn between college and rotc, or going straight in to the service, and his family who are broncos fans, even though we live in atlanta.

And the neighborhood is well kept up too.

Oh, man. I've been hearing of special neighborhood watches and communities banding together to keep an eye out for squatters on eachother's homes as well as doing a bit of yard work here and there. People who stain that astro turf stuff for athletic fields are working overtime to keep lawns green and make it look more lived in. Its not happening everywhere and not right away but its happening. At least the banding together is a positive.

HA! What are you, a New Zealander? My most daring name was "Erinyes" (a last name)

Hee - I'm not as creative with the escapism as all that.  I have been doing an experiment lately though - speaking of incest (ick) - how far removed do Sim cousins need to be before they can hook up?  I know - warped, but I've always been curious...  I might have one giant infertile neighborhood soon...

I got on a kick of naming kids after breakfast cereals.  After Snap, Crackle, & Pop, things had to get a little more adventurous.  Honey Smacks?  Kinda sounds inappropriate.

By the way - I've had "I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS" stuck in my head since your post.   ;D

ooh. Cereal names. How about:
Quisp, Cerbi, Alphabits, Total, Cheerios, Shreddies, Ezekiel, GoLean,  Chex, Trix, Kix, Vive, and what the hey, HeartyMorning

I mostly play with house and decorating. I have no clue about the cousin thing. Do I want to know? It'd take forever to find out,so I wouldn't be surprised if the creators were like "meh" and had the sims forget they're related after a certain point.

But such talk is merely guessing. Will someone test that out for us? (resists making Bluth joke)

Love the cereals - esp.

Oh, and Soggyfox - I love that you know your neighbors so well.  That's really sweet.   :)

I'm also a builder. I play on a Mac so it can only take so many character files before it starts freakin' out, anyway. I also almost went to school for interior design (before switching to advertising), so I've always had a soft spot for it.

As a skitsophrenic(sp?), bipolar gemini with OCD, I have explored every possible way to play the game. I have all the EPs, so I have tons of sims with extensive life histories and generations of business owners, college graduates, farmers, home owners and renters. They live in elaborate neighborhoods with a variety of architectural styles. I'm a total control freak when it comes to my sims though, so most of them have no free will or motive/aspiration decay. I'm sort of a dictator god when I play, but I do take good care of my sims, always keeping them green and happy. Townies are the exception, I love torturing them.
I will spend days building a house and days decorating it. I love the architectural and interior design aspects of the game. I used to build very detailed houses out of legos when I was a kid. I also made and played with paperdolls a lot, hence my name. The Sims allows me the same enjoyment, but with way better graphics. ;D
I love the game, even if I'm not crazy about the politics behind it.

I think I'll try that cousins thing to see how far it goes. My kind of challenge. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Perhaps, but I do sometimes let the motive decay stay on in order to explore certain aspects that require it. The reason I keep it off a lot of the time is so I can have them do what I want without them having to got to the bathroom or go to sleep. Sometimes I just want to see what will happen in certain situations.
It's just the way I play. It's not for everyone. My mother plays also. She just builds houses and creates the sims, but she doesn't play them. I always play mine, so our style of play is quite different. That versatility is a big part of what I like about the game.

To each his own. You play your way and I'll play mine.  ;D

OMG, he spoke at thee.
The wonderful thing about the game is that people can play however the fuck they want. Be it housing-slump recession survival, naming their kids as breakfast cereals, or making self-sims (and killing them creatively-- *cough*). More power to you.

I for one almost never use MAXIS anything. And I don't have any maxis match stuff. To some people, that's abhorrent.  Fuck them. That's how I play. I'm not going to tell them they shouldn't use it. Its just made for a different player. It's a fucking game. Come on.

Y'know it's weird, for all the stuff I download I'm using less and less CC in my houses.  I think it's because I'm afraid of the lag issue.  All I know is that I recently deleted all my ReflexSucks stuff* and when I was redecorating the houses it occupied I had a terrible time figuing out what to replace it with that would keep the "feel" of the original decor.  I finally realized I had plenty of stuff that would work, but I kept looking at EA stuff instead of CC. 

*Except for the Elements set.  If anyone knows where I can find a couple of cool flaming torches and a fire bowl like hers I'd appreciate it.  I use them in cemetaries.

I've found that on my computer, lag doesn't seem to be related to how much custom content I have. There's one custom hot tub I can't really use because it causes slowdown, but that's the only thing I've found that causes problems. I get lag from ghosts, old Sims with tons of memories who won't just die already, bubbles in fountains, elevators, Sims turning blue from cold, and bad witches making lightning. All EAxis' fault.

What the fuck are talking about? Whether or not it is normal in real life isn't related to whether or not it is normal in-game behavior.

I don't get a lag from CC, but I go on thematic hunts and get bogged down with stuff I won't use. I finally just start over every few months from scratch because I have a download anomaly that crashes. I just did that today although MTS2 and SimPE are both down so I can't get CEP back for a few days.

MTS2's downloads won't be available again til the 12th!

Just wanted to let people know, MTS2 now says the estimated fix time is now unknown.

This is the update from Delphy from today:

Quote
Okay, so, turns out that when I said I didn't think we'd lost any data, I was incorrect.

The primary drive from chii had a ton of read write errors on it - so much so that currently all downloads past mid-october last year (when the server was first setup - remember, we moved servers back then) are basically toast.

The backup drive has so many read write errors on it that it wont even boot the machine with it plugged in and it just goes to kernel panic mode.

As it stands I have managed to recover most downloads prior to Mid-October last year (some 127gb worth), but anything after attachmentid 826742 is gone. I am not entirely convinced that *all* downloads prior to then are intact and am investigating further to see how many prior to that date are ok.

Suffice to say I am extremely annoyed at the situation and beleive that there may be some other hardware issue on Chii becuase to have 2 drives fail so utterly is extremely rare.

I'm going to see if there is a way of getting the primary drive looked at professionally to see if we can recover any more data, but right now it's not looking hopeful.


That looks bad.

I feel bad for them. They must be in panic mode themselves. Maybe people can provide missing files later to fill the gaps. If the artist is retired, they might not see the light of day again. I'm thinking the graveyard might get a bunch of new acquisitions soon.

Also note the two drives reference.  It sounds as if one held the files and the other was backup, and they both failed.  And files after mid October seem to be toast, maybe not the entire drive.

Title: Re: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: Darqstar on 2009 March 12, 23:18:16
I'm just wondering if there will be a way to list all the stuff lost, if there is a record of that on another server (The pages still seem to be up, just the items themselves seem to be gone)  If that's the case, perhaps they can put out a call to the artists to replace them, and for any members who might have such items, seeing that some artists probably won't be able to be reached. 

If there was a list of missing items, I'm sure whoever could help would.  I know I'd look through my downloads and share what I have.  I'd assume most of us would.

Okay RAID rebuild failed - the backup drive is completely toast.

I'm going to get the primary drive shipped to me so I can run my own recovery on it. However this will obviously take some days.

So, basically what I'm doing is re-installing the basic stuff on Chii (gcc, libjpeg etc) so I can get PHP compiled. Once that happens I'll run a script that tells me which files are actually missing from the filesystem, and then we can identify the threads.

Once we know which threads are affected, I'll make a custom banner appear at the top of each of them, asking for members or the creator to resubmit the files. This way we can hopefully rebuild anything missing.

I apologise for this and for the delay - it's obvious there was a massive failure of the backup systems here, which only ever comes to light when something actually goes wrong. Going forward I'm going to investigate more stringent and effective backup solutions but for now we'll have to see how bad the damage really is.

That is the latest info. What it looks like is Delphy is going to see what he can save, if anything. What can't be found the creator or if in the case that not possible, people who downloaded the stuff are going to have to resubmit it. This is going to be a mess, and take a long time to fully recover from it.

At least they can figure out what's missing. That may be a lot, but it's a start... And hey, maybe this whole mess will come up with a faster, better, stronger MTS. Not to mention, if a creator lost files (on MTS) and decides that they want to update it before uploading again, we get shiny new stuff.  ;D

Let's try to be positive.  :)

No worries about the CEP, I'm sure there are thousands of copies people have downloaded and I'm one of them. I've got the The CEP - Color Enable Package v. 9.1 - 09 NOV 2008 and I'll happily supply it, I also have the whole page saved with all the information.

I'm sure the biggest challenge is going to be figuring out what's been lost, which is on Delphy's shoulders. Once we know that I'm sure the community will be able to supply whatever's missing.

But, I did find this today:

I haven't tried this out yet, but as I understand from this:
is low poly, and it WORKS!!!! The storage compartments are usable with OMSPs, and the stairs seem to remain functional with a fair amount of stuff encroaching on the stair treads, as well. There are 10 OMSPs included, several of which are practically the same height as one another, but each one does match up with a specific plane of the object.

(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w150/veggiedeggie/tansustairs01.jpg)

Am I getting this right? It's an dresser tansu. It can be used to place objects on (with omsp) AND it's a staircase? MUST HAVE NOW

is low poly, and it WORKS!!!! The storage compartments are usable with OMSPs, and the stairs seem to remain functional with a fair amount of stuff encroaching on the stair treads, as well. There are 10 OMSPs included, several of which are practically the same height as one another, but each one does match up with a specific plane of the object.
It's made of BOXES. It damn well BETTER be low-poly.

It's made of BOXES. It damn well BETTER be low-poly.

LOW POLY is becoming a battlecry that doesn't mean what it used to.  I'm always amused when I see someone posting boxes and other totally square things and bragging about the low poly count. 

Those stairs are made of awesome, but the poly count doesn't figure into the awesomeness of it.   It's like the package of chocolate chip cookies I bought for my great niece that said in proud letters on the front, "CONTAINS REAL CHOCOLATE CHIPS!"  Considering that they were rather expensive, 100% "natural" chocolate chip cookies, (not chocolate flavored cookies)  the fact that they contained chocolate chips was pretty underwhelming.

I go for low poly still, but more from a desire for minimal poly for the item - I've done some high poly stuff, but its still the minimum needed for the look I want.

Exactly.  There is no need for high poly boxes.   Again, I adore those stairs.  They are well done and well textured.  But just looking at the shape tells me it should be low poly. 

EDIT TO ADD:

They're special, faffy artiste boxes. If my artistic vision/muse had required it, be assured that I would not hesitate to divide those faces into a glorious, fractalized mosaic of polylicious redundancy.

Also, about the it WORKS! part: If you don't have AL, the first version uploaded may cause problems; I had only one report of a possible issue, so I'm not sure it was actually the stairs causing the problem. In any case, I've redone the file so it is now really and truly basegame compatible.

Even though there is a staircase OMSP already available, these stairs don't match the existing stair profile at every tread, so I made my own set. The gargantuan OMSP set by Silent Lucidity at MTS2 probably also would fit most if not all of the stairs for people who have the ability to shift them with AL. I have way too many OMSPs myself, but I also have many surface objects that still don't have an appropriate OMSP, so I just want to be sure that everything I make that might require one, has one.

Oh, and thank you for the nice comments in this thread :)  I thought they turned out pretty cool myself.

I think my favorite of the MTS2 questions yesterday were probably the ones that didn't even have multiple choice answers or fields to type in essays. I know there was one that told you to hum the theme to Jeopardy and then hit F3, one that told you to go check and make sure you didn't leave the stove on, and one that simply said Dammit, make it stop! However, the one that asked me to "input the longest song title in the world into the 10-character box below" also had me laughing for a while.

Skoria, the new Battlestar is good, just completely not the same. I wasn't really into the original (seen it, but meh), but the hubbs was and he says this one doesn't ruin it for him. I am glad I didn't get that question, though. I haven't watched the last handful of episodes yet - can't be having any spoilers!

Scurvy, WNF APR = Wicked Nouk Family Aspiration Reward. Actually, it's just AR, but Sims always use ASP for aspiration, so I can't help but stick the P in there even though it makes little to no sense.

I got the questions "What was Starbuck really?" I said a store that sold coffee. I never watched the "new" Battlestar Galatica. I loved the original cheezy one too much.
 

Mine was interstella coffee, but wait isn't stella a lager.  lager flavoured coffee ftw

I was fond of the original too, or at least had some of my first major crushes from it.  When they changed the gender of one of those characters....they lost me - even if the doctor or whatever was very nice to look at.

I did watch the first few episodes when the new Galactica started. I do have to hand it to them the writing for the series was very well done. Afraid it was too "dark" for me. Same thing with a lot of the newer "Trek" spinoffs too. Future is dark, worlds will end, etc. I do think its funny though that Dirk Benedict (The REAL Starbuck if you ask me  ;)) met the actress playing the new Starbuck (don't remember her name, but she's a great actress. Saw her on the new Bionic Woman and loved her character there) in where else... A Starbucks coffee shop to discuss playing the character. And yes, I have the original Battlestar soundtrack on vinyl. I loved the music to the original show.

I have the original pilot episode of the original Battlestar: Galactica and somewhere have most if not all of the books. Yeah, I iz a sci-fi geek. About the Starbuck question, I wrote that it was an overpriced coffee shop that sells bad coffee using over-roasted coffee beans. Have any of you ever noticed that there is a burnt taste to it? Eccch! I prefer the lighter roasts because they give you more of a caffeine hit. Also, the hotter the water you use to brew it, the better the flavour is going to be.

When I first saw your avatar, my first thought was, "Oh crap, is it HER?  Of course not no one would be so stupid as to use the SAME avatar is they do on TSR, then come over..."

Then I remembered it was Dot and checked the name.  And read the post. 

Although, I have to admit, that Dot probably could roam around here under another name, acting like one of us, and I'd probably never suspect her.  What if we're grossly underestimating her?

I've got a cat that insists in sleeping inside a 20 cup coffee maker that sits up on top of a closet shelf.  I have no clue how she gets in it, because it's only got about a three inch clearance from the ceiling, but I've found her in there a lot.

I don't even know how we got the thing.  It's big, it's like the type of coffee makers you see at church suppers.  But we have it.  And I don't even drink coffee.

My cat sleeps in the hole in my box spring-  It doesn't provide much shape though rather like DOTS lamps- Which is good much like Darqstar's cat he doesn't like being shaped- of course my foster cat likes it even less - I love that castle to and I want it for my plantsims, and my evil witch.

I saw this amazing work of art at some Sims 2 `finds`site (which I doubt is a pay site) and was in love, but considering I have no clue how to read Korean or Japanese, I'm out of luck and sad. Can you even download this?! How did he even built it? I'm just in awe...and want everyone to see its beauty.

In case you're still looking for this...

This is Curio's blog, a famous Korean lot builder. You can find more information about her at Sims Cave. There is a very long WCIF thread (http://www.simscave.com/index.php?topic=5078.0) devoted entirely to her lots.

The blog only serves as her showcase for her lots. The actual downloads are available at her Daum cafe (http://cafe.daum.net/curio-shop). Surprisingly, Daum account is not required.

I agree- When I left started here I had removed 3000 paysite files from my d/l folder- I still have some but for every 1 paysite file I deleted I have added 5-10 freesite files. This includes substituting files for paysite creators that have x-posted the same creations on freesites like MTS2 (Ala Windkeeper,and MsBarrows), or that have since gone free and uploaded their pay files to the freesite they now post on (Aikea and Gelydh), and my build mode and Maxis Match/Completer sets which had tripled thanks to Natural Sims, Sim2Code and Sims 2 Artists. I had it down to about 6000 individual files in my d/l folder and now am up over 11000 files.

NOM. Definitely snagging a couple o' those. I'm wondering why MTS2 didn't mark that one a 'picked' upload. If anyone else had come up with 11 different mini-sets of lipstick (with different alphas, it seems), with previews that well done, it would have a little star by it. Especially if it was like their first upload or something. I realize that Bruno is stellar all the time, but that's no reason to treat her any differently than anyone else when it comes to all around standard of quality. Waaah.

You say that like us youngins don't usually have talent. ;) I think, if anything, those of us around this age are more likely to be able to do stuff like this because of the exposure to computer programs since we were kids. I spent a lot of time in high school putzing around on my mom's copy of photoshop. And it's so easy to find good texture resources on the net these days. (I'm such a design nerd. Apologies.) Not that what she does is any less amazing. Her low poly meshwork combined with the way she puts the detail on the texture are brilliant.

Margierytka's "The Farm of Frantic Staszek" is one of my all time favorite lots.  It is charming, beautiful, authentic, and the pictures really showcase different parts of the lot.  You may have seen it at MTS2, but I'm providing a link to the Sims2Design page because it has more pictures.  I searched for "Margierytka" and "Staszek", nothing came up, so I hope this hasn't already been mentioned.

I like what Margierytka did with the couches in the 3rd picture, overlapping two of them like that.  If you look at some of her other lots on MTS2, she does similar things with three tables joined at 120deg angles, nice effect.

Post by: Axeleefe on 2009 May 02, 12:51:44
This is of questionable placement...
While I was scavenging like the clutter-bug that I am... I managed to find some pretty orgasmic meshing jobs.
The meshes I am showcasing here are, by definition, FREE. And very pretty I might add... However, the rest of the site is pay... and no matter how much they try to hide it, their shoe meshes can't make up for the shit they call outfits, above the ankles.

So, in accordance with the guidelines, I suppose you could call them 'free' ... they are free by all means, but the rest of the site (utter crap) should walk the plank...

Anywho...

Ladies, get your purses ready :o

:o
It's like they're just ASKING to be textured and turned into shoe clutter!
And the site has a free to learn tutorial on how to add the meshes to your outfits... but again, it didn't really work for them, because if you look at some of the crap they put in their pay section.. no matter how many nice shoes they have... it ain't gonna happen.

Admittedly, I am expecting to be thrown in the plank for praising a creator that charges for most of if not all of their horrible work, but I couldn't pass it up...

It's becuase they are not clutter; they are for meshing and stuff.

And those free shoes are GORGEOUS  :o My poor, poor downloads folder.

Yeah, I get that. I still think that no texture is going to improve them to the point that I would want them cluttering up my simmies houses.

The free shoes started with a Maxis mesh if I'm not mistaken. Since I've never seen any Maxis shoes as clutter (but I don't have all the ep's and stuff packs, so maybe there are), that leads me to think that the Maxis ones are clothing.

We can, sort of, if we make the shoes as accessories and dress sims in barefoot mesh clothing.  There just aren't that many accessory shoes out there.

Did it ever occur to you that some people like to drink leisurely when they browse the internet?  ::)

When you start blaming problems on alcohol, it's time to recognize you have a problem with alcohol.    You wanna drink and be an idiot?  Go to a bar or a party. where such behavior is, if not enjoyed, at least somewhat expected.   I spent too much of my life having to deal with drunken idiots and their idea of a "good time" to buy that as the blanket excuse for poor behavior.  That's as bad as all the other excuse tossing we do these days. "I can't help it, I have ADD, I can't help it, I suffer from depression.  It's not my fault, I have Assburgers!"  If you're an alcoholic, then shut up  get some help.  If you're not an alcoholic, then drinking isn't an excuse. 

It's not that you made a mistake, it's the way you then tried to twist it so we were all little lab rats in some great experiment you were running.  You don't have to "trick" us into doing stuff, if you had asked, people who had the answer would have been happy to answer your question.  Instead you act like if you don't cleverly ask without asking, we'll all tell you to fuck off instead.   Nice.  I'm not a lab rat and you aren't the evil overlord. 

And yes, I know you want to move beyond it, but I didn't catch what you wrote in response to me, and thus realize it was more douche-like than your original behavior I called you on. 

And no, you did not try to let the unpleasantness settle like an adult, you kept responding and responding.  Dusdeedawn wasn't being immature, you are, by insisting that you must have the last word, and that anyone who won't let you have the last word is the one with the problem.  You started it, you treated us as inferior beings who had to be tricked instead of treated like equals.  You deal with the shit you get in response and quit acting like a victim.

Axeleefe, from someone who has done a little 'drink posting' in the past, take it from me.  Do not blame your behaviour on the booze.  Even if you get so inebriated you don't remember what you did the next day, you are still somewhat aware of what you are doing at the time, and there is still a modicum of self control.  So control.  Alcohol doesn't make you do anything. And the only person dragging this out is you, so shut it.

And Darqstar, please don't start with including mental illness and neurological disorders as being excuses, and can be helped.  If a clinically depressed person could help feeling as bad as they would, they wouldn't be like that in the first place.

And Darqstar, please don't start with including mental illness and neurological disorders as being excuses, and can be helped.  If a clinically depressed person could help feeling as bad as they would, they wouldn't be like that in the first place.

Immortelle, I'll "start" with anything I like, you aren't my mother.  You don't have to agree with me, but you also don't have the right to censor me.  

Almost everyone has some type of mental issue, myself included.  And yeah, it sucks and it's hard to deal with.  However, in MOST cases it shouldn't give you a "Get out of responsibilities for your actions for free!" card.    Everyone is still ultimately responsible for what they do.    Yes, being depressed, having ADD (both things I suffer from myself, so, yeah, I do speak from experience) helps me to understand why I might do certain things, but it doesn't mean the world is under any obligation to allow me more freedom in my actions.  My ADD might make me more prone to tell my boss to fuck off and die if he gets on my case, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have the right to take corrective actions with  me for doing it.   My depression means that there are times when I don't have the energy to do anything but sleep, but that doesn't mean that I don't have to face up to the consequences if I sleep through a family celebration or any other important occasion.  It also doesn't mean that my behavior wasn't shitty.  If I sleep through my nieces birthday party, even though it was due to being depressed, it was still a shitty thing to do and I owe her an apology and to try to make it up to her.   And by apology, I mean apology, not "I'm sorry, but I'm depressed, so, let's just let bygones be bygones,"  which is really saying, "Yeah, I fucked up, but don't blame me!  I have an excuse!"  but a sincere apology for my actions.  And my niece then has the right to forgive me, or be pissed off at me for awhile.  If she takes the high road to pissed off land, I don't have the right to say, "Well, gee, I can't help it you know."  

Yes, anyone can have a bad day and yes, sometimes you have to cut slack for that. "I'm sorry, but my kid is sick, so I'm a little uptight," is understandable.  "I'm sorry I don't want to go to your party, but my mother is very ill," yeah, that's fine.  But when you start using something as your blanket excuse so you can behave in ways society finds unacceptable, then it's wrong.  

Life isn't fair, but we're dealt the hand we're dealt.  It's unfair that a blind person can't get around as easily as a sighted person, but no one says, "You know, it isn't really the blind person's fault that they're blind, so what the hell, let's let them drive!"  Having a mental illness shouldn't be an excuse for you to act like a douche bag and never have to worry about taking responsibility.  You fuck up, you own up.  And yes, being depressed, having ADD, or being bipolar might mean that it's five times harder for you to cope in certain situations, but again, that's the hand you're dealt.  Just as it might be harder for a blind person to get around in a world where vision is important,  the person with the mental health issues has to work harder to cope in social situations.  

I probably shouldn't have tossed in the Assburgers one, because the real illness, Asperger's, is serious.  But, that's the favorite illness on the net lately, and 99% of the people who claim to have it, will tell you they diagnosed it themselves.  That's why I call it Assburgers, fake name illness diagnosed by a fake doctor.

Thank you for clarifying what you meant Darqstar.  I must admit I do get a little hypersensitive on the topic.  I've come across people who honestly believe that there is no such thing as a mental illness, or ADD or Aspergers or any of those.  That there just another way of scamming money out of people, and another excuse that people can fabricate to justify their existence.  That and the fact that you mentioned Aspergers in the list, which is still a raw nerve with me (I was diagnosed as having it when I was little, but it wasn't until I was 26 that my mother told me that I had it.  It came as quite a shock, but it did indeed explain a few things for me.)

I do agree that there is a degree of choice and accountability.  Everyone has choice, regardless of their situation.  It would be crazy to say that a blind person chooses to be blind, or that you choose to have ADD. But you can choose how you deal with it, and what actions to take.  And you are right, just about everyone has some sort of a mental condition, but for some most its an endearing little quirk . . . .

I could continue, but right now its 3 am, and I am now so tired I feel nauseous, shakey and weepy.  I really should be getting to bed ASAP.

And you deny that this is so? None of these things exist. Note the complete lack of historical backing for them. They are purely made-up conditions intended to stigmatize otherwise harmless behavior, or to justify obnoxious behavior. There's no "ADD", there is merely "not beating your kids often enough".

Thank y'all SO much for this thread.  I was totally bummed because my poor computer was hexed with who knows what and I lost everything...all my downloads and a huge sim family I'd been playing for almost two years, but now I've found loads of new stuff.  I thought I knew where the best downloads were but I'd never been to GOS, had a few Adele things but had no clue she had so much, new to Calalily's, etc.  My download folder is ripe for the stuffing.  I'm only on page 29 of this thread and have gotten TONS.

I know I'll have more links later but right now only have one humble offering...a cute kid's wallpaper (yes, just one but I adore it).  I had this in my game before and it cheered me greatly to find it again.  http://linna.modthesims2.com/download.php?t=276162

It's also really good for your immune system.  I take it whenever I feel a cold coming on and it always works.

On a more tasty note baked garlic is the best thing EVAR. There's a very traditional French recipe called poulet aux 40 gousses d'ail which is basically exactly what is says it is.  Is da bomb ya! The best part is taking bread and soaking it in the juice then squishing the baked garlic on it. It's juicy and squishy and tasty and warm and running down your chin and totally orgahasmic! OMFG

I'm going to open myself up to be laughed at, but is that 40 clove chicken?  A friend gave me the recipe and I made a variant with peppers and onions as well as the many garlic cloves - very tasty stuff.

And Garlic is what was used before penicillin was invented - its not an antibiotic, but it does work in a similar manner.  I suspect the tradition of chicken noodle soup when sick comes from a time when it was made with garlic.

Onions are also good for you, but not as potent as garlic.

Not good.  My hubbie still indulges in garlic bread.  But he moans and groans for the rest of the day and night afterwards.  Because of it that though, I don't often cook stuff with garlic in it.  But then again, I don't cook much of anything, because apparently everything I cook (apart from my stir fries and one or two other recipes) makes him sick.  The rest he just doesn't like (doesn't like mango chicken, lemon chicken, lamb korma, butter chicken . . . .)

I have acid reflux, but garlic doesn't seem to bother me.  Sugar bothers me.  If I decided to buy sourballs or mint pinwheels, I have to be very careful, a couple of those and I'll be miserable.

However, the Prilosect OTC is a lifesaver. And thankfully, my insurance only charges me five bucks for a 28 day supply as long as it's a perscription. 

Tomatoes don't bother me either, yet they bother my mother something fierce.

I'm with your mum Darqstar, tomatoes are the ebil... I can't even cut the suckers without getting rashes all over my hands and eating them raw kills me. Strangely though, if they've been cooked to oblitaration I can stomach them. Too bad my M.I.L. doesn't seem to get the notion. To her cooking a tomato consists of boiling or broiling it for approximately 5 picoseconds...and then she wonders why I avoid her cooking  ::).

Gaarlic doesn't bother me much, but sometimes tomatoy stuff can cause me acid reflux attacks - and apparently, so does apple juice - the last month wired, I had to stop drinking any juice, which lowered my calorie intake by a lot, but kept me from getting too ill to my stomach - now I'm unwired, I think I'll start on another prilosec regimen and see if that works.

If you haven't tried this yet, I know it works.

Add a pinch of cinnamon to anything with tomato sauce, like Italian pastas and whatnot. It will prevent heartburn. (and it makes the tomatoe sauce tastier) My ex-husband, who was a cajun cook, taught me that.

Eat a piece of crystalized ginger for upset stomache or nausea. It works almost immediately.

Yep - that's right.  Of course, you can also just plain old bake garlic by itself and use it over your roasts/bread etc.  I adore garlic - I have it on my cheese on toast.

I keep hearing about ginger doing remarkable things and I should try it. The problem is that a friend of mine's mother, who was very much a child of the '60s, even though she was really too old for that whole thing, used to make him Ginger and kelp (yes, that's kelp as in seaweed) cookies.  And my friend would, as a lark, try to foster them off on unsuspecting fools. 

I have eaten seaweed in other things and it is fine.  However, it has no place in a common gingersnap cookie.  And it really turned me off to ginger.  "Mmm...nice cookie, not a bad taste...AW FUCK, SEAWEED!"  Big chunks of it too, that at first glance looked like raisins or chocolate chips.

She also used to say everything had it's place in the cosmos.  As in,  her son, "MOM! I just fell and BROKE MY ARM!"  His mom, "Well, perhaps it's your place in the cosmos to have a broken arm."  Me, "Yeah, that's nice, but how about taking him to the HOSPITAL?"  Mom,"Do you think we should?"

Why the HELL would anyone need 50 lipsticks? A sim can only wear ONE, and unless you plan to give one to a different sim, meaning you need at least 50 different sims, what'd be the point?

It's taken me goddamn forever, but I downloaded and tried out ALL of the lipsticks in bodyshop and in game.

The different shapes and shading/highlighting of the lipsticks *are* undeniably fantastic. Each set can make the lip structure look different-- as in the lip's musculature. Some are even shaded to look like a woman has penciled outside of the lipline to make her lips look fuller. Some accent the top rim "cupid bow" even. Really, a great eye for facial anatomy.

Jeebus, some even make the lips look dry, bare and matte. (where some skintones fail to cover) All in all, a great way to make the sims look unique. Also, I think they'd come in handy for those folks who like story making. The same folks who download dozens and dozens of pose boxes. I don't make stories, but the majority of my female sims do have an everyday lipstick, and a formal lipstick.

The only drawback I can see is that some shades within each set look almost exactly the same. Does "lip glaze" need two shades of lilac? Does "Sweet Lips" need three shades of salmon that aren't even a half shade apart?  I spent a lot of time deleting specific shades that had a near duplicate.

 Over at The sims Cave, I have downloaded some nice lipsticks from the chinese sites that are very natural looking, good for on males too because lipstick can change the shape of the mouth and gives variety to  the look of your sims.

I'm too lazy to open up bodyshop again and verify-- it takes like 15 minutes for it to load. But I'm fairly sure it's the male "for all texture" lips. Don't hold me to that, though.

Another great set of bare-unglossy lips can be found on AtomicSpaceKitty's MTS2 page, as well as her profile on GOS, and her website "World's Apart". A bonus with AtomicSpaceKitty's are that they match all sorts of skintones, from pale, ethnic, to vampire/elf/drow. I think they look semi-realistic, or kinda maxis-like if you choose to see them that way, so it probably looks good in *everyone*'s game. She thought of everything! ;)

I've missed the food discussion apparently, but I'm going to indulge myself anyway.

I will eat anything. Anything except onions (I'm fiercely allergic).

And the ginger thing reminded me of something. About a year ago, my mom was staying with my roomie and I temporarily and my roomie was really nauseous. Because my mom is the motherly type, she went out and got some ginger ale for her. She came back, and poor Amy just looked at her and went "I really really appreciate it, but I'm allergic to ginger. It'll just make it worse." 'Course, then, my mom just resorted to making chicken soup (and my mom's homemade chicken soup is phenomenal), which she only makes in enormous batches, so I benefited from that one. ;) And the roommate? She's Chinese and Thai- the two cultures in which cooking with ginger is most prevalent. Her mom, being traditionally raised in Shanghai, used to force feed her ginger in an attempt to make her immune to it, and apparently she would get ridiculously nauseated. It didn't really work.

Haha. Definitely.

It sucks so hard being allergic to onions, though. I didn't develop the allergy until I hit adulthood. When I was a kid, onion rings were just about my favorite things ever. Now, they make me incredibly sick. I can only have onions that have been dehydrated beyond recognition, like onion powders in soups and stuff.

Well, at least when children get caught smoking the punishment is a consequence for their action. That poor girl.

That's more likely than you think, Dusdee. A swarm of honey bees had made a hive between the walls of my bedroom when I was a teen and they found their way into my room. I woke up with about twelve of them crawling on me and totally froze, not daring to move because I am highly allergic. My dad came to see what was taking me so long to get out of bed, took one look and went to get the pot of honey. It seemed to take forever for those little bastard to get off of me. I took no time getting out of that room and into the bathroom, I had to go!

They got the hive out that day and transplanted into another receptacle. Cleaning up was a pain, but I was just glad to see them gone. I also learned just how much bladder control I have, too. :D I can laugh now, but I was terrified then.

I understand the absolute terror you must have felt with a red back on your lap. But, Immortelle, aren't you in Australia, where damn near everything is deadly poisonous?
I admit, I've always had a fascination with Australia and I truly have a weakness for Australians (something about the accent). But the idea of actually being in the Australian outback terrifies me. I don't think I would last very long.

Not everything.  The ants aren't.  Some of the snakes are.  Redbacks and funnel webs are our most dangerous spiders as they are in abundance over here and both can kill.  The rest of the spiders if they bit will make you a little sick, but you survive.  Cane toads are deadly, but they are an introduced species.  And we do have a mosquito that carries the Ross River Fever virus.  But apart from that our bities are just that - bities.

Lots more things are dangerous, and lots of them are far more poisonous than shit anywhere else.  You forget the killer octopus, the deadly jellyfish, the crocs, stone fish, cone fish, earwigs, sharks ranging from great white to mako and tiger, and the nut-removing roo.

But paperbeth, apart from redback spiders, on a daily basis in a city, you are unlikely to encounter any of these things without entering into their habitat.  Asia has some incredibly dangerous animals, as does South America - but no one freaks out too much about them.

The East Coast of the U.S isn't that bad until you get to the Mason Dixon Line. Until you hit Georgia all we have to deal with for poisonous/dangerous animals are wildcats, fisher cats (vicious little shits that attack anything), brown bears, black widow spiders, Eastern Rattlers, and yellow jacket wasps. Once you hit the SouthEastern states there are also alligators, and a few other varieties of poisonous spiders and snakes that I can't remember off the top of my head. The only ones I have ever ran into are the yellow jackets - cause they live anywhere- all the rest you would pretty much only encounter in the garden, or when camping and I don't do either.

I live in Georgia - luckily most of our poisonous snakes are either good-natured [Coral snakes] or skittish - only one is actively pissy and aggressive, and those are cottonmouths - unfortunately they tend to live in swarms, so you usually don't get attacked by just one - but they are mostly a water snake so....

Also, luckily the normal scorpion for this region is not poisonous - since one got into my bed one night and bit me twice before I smashed it in my sleep and then woke up.

Spiders, well...we have brown recluses and black widows, otherwise most of the spiders are pretty friendly.

Yellowjackets - let's say they are worse than most wasps for aggressive nastiness.  Lived in a place where some had built a nest right near the walk path - they stung me on the nose and got several other people, including our landlord, who is an entomologist and has experience working in extermination.

We don't get gators except in the southern end of the state, near florida, but there are bears, coyotes, wild dogs and wild cats, like cougars.  And we have sharks in our coastal areas too - tigers and bullsharks that I know of.

Scary as hell, specially if you were walking along the sandy bank of the river and what you think is a branch starts to rattle at you. Talk about turn tail and run like all hell.

Flying insects that bite and sting are common. Hornets, honey bees, wasps of all kinds exist to make your life hell if you're allergic to their venom. When I was little, a year above a six, I had extremely long hair and a couple of hornets got caught in my hair. Those bastards stung me at the base of the skull, right side, seven times. I was down sick for two weeks and don't remember any of the hospital time, which my mother always said was a blessing because apparently it didn't look good. (Skinny, half-starved looking little thing even though I ate like a horse and had energy that made the Tasmanian Devil look torpid.)

We've got the brown recluse and I think the black widow in both Iowa and Illinois. As for other critters that are unfriendly, there is always the skunk you scare the hell out of of while he's raiding your garbage cans if you aren't careful enough to put the lid on tightly. Raccoons will do the same thing, as will the opossum, but those guys won't spray you like a skunk will. I've heard that the wildcats are making a comeback, but haven't seen one so far.

Road hazards all year round are the deer looking for food and breeding. When I used to get out and about on my own, it was rare that they didn't declare Paden Season and try to make me hit them. They're almost as suicidal as the bunnies and squirrels! :D

Holy s**t! I'm not going to believe this one until I see it in the game for myself. Un-freakin'-believable!

I've seen some foxes streaking through my backyard the last couple of weeks, too. To be honest, I don't know if I'll miss the wild life when we change residence or not. I sure the shit won't miss all of the fucking mice we've had streaming through, though. I'm still pissed about my art portfolio. Good news on that, before I told that family to fuck off, I was able to get the part of the collection back that my sister had in her possession, so I didn't lose it all, just the majority. A slice of bread is better than none at all, I guess.

Living in the city means I dont have to deal with a lot of wild animals. We have different dangers, like the Craigslist killer and being hit by a car (which has almost happened to me twice and actually happened to my brother once). However, that means when I see an insect or snake I absolutely freak out! I can't even see a big bug on tv without shuddering. I went camping once and was ravaged my mosquitoes and bedbugs while all the friends I was with got nothing. I think it was because they all lived in wilderness areas before and were immune unlike me::)

3 years ago, when I was heavy into walking, I was out on one of my ten mile hikes.  I stopped at this tiny roadside convenience store and bought a bottle of propel and a packages of Twizzlers. 

As I continued my walk, a wild turkey came out of the bushes.  Not that uncommon, we have lots of wild turkeys around here. But he walked up to me, (my hands were at my sides) and grabbed the Twizzler right out of my hand, and ate it.

Wild animals have gotten awful cocky since they've realized we don't run around with guns.

One might question the intelligence of a turkey  who, surrounded by corn and an abundance of other farm fresh things, decided to grab a twizzler.  Of course, I love Twizzlers, my husband says they're my crack, but I never thought turkeys felt the same way.

Also, wild turkeys do not look ANYTHING like domestic turkeys.  They actually aren't bad looking at all, except for all the wrinkling and waddling around the face.  If it wasn't for that, the wild turkey would have made a pretty good official bird.

Hawks and Eagles are similar in a lot of ways.  I lost my respect for hawks when one chased after me to the point where I had to walk across the street, and up into the yard to get around him.  Why? Because he had a dead squirrel and he seemed convinced that I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

Birds and I do not get along.  I find birds creepy.  When I first read that the theory of birds having evolved from dinosaurs, my reaction was, "yeah, that makes sense."  I always got the feeling birds know they came from creatures who were once on top of the food chain and they still haven't gotten over being dropped from that status.

Not that I'm trying to convert you into a bird lover or anything, but try checking out the "Life of Birds" series by Sir David Attenborough. It has the power to make any anti-bird person at least look at them in a new way. The man is just magic and has not been nor ever will be equaled by other naturalists. He has a way of making you see the grand scheme of nature that just *clicks*

I've been drooling over that new Adele set ever since the preview. MY GOD, the detail is so rich. I want to take a color theory class from her. And she's what-- 19? 20? That's just a baby!

Also, dinosaurs are awesome! To counter the "creepy" image some might have, dinos may have been the pioneers of "cuteness" that we mammals so lurve. Dino hatchlings were the first animals to have features we think of as "cute" and mammilian-- large eyes, small noses and mouths, blunter faces. Some scientists think it was what helped wittle dinos survive and what fostered the motherly behavior that paleontologists increasingly attribute certain dino species.

Parrots are smart. Turkeys are very very stupid. I've lived around both. It is true that a turkey can drown in the rain. I've seen it happen. We had one that drowned in it's own water dish. The water was about a centimeter deep. I once found a mother turkey (wild) who had built her nest right next to the road. We tried to move her and realized she had chicks. She kept leading them back to the road.
I don't know of any African greys that ever drowned in their own water dish.

Oppossums are also very very stupid. btw

The moment we domesticate anything, we set right to work on breeding out any brains.  Domestic turkeys are dumb as a post, but wild turkeys are not. 

I don't hate birds with a passion, I find them very beautiful when they're eating from the birdfeeders my parents have.  I used to find the hawks circling around our street to be pretty cool, until I saw my neighbor have to throw her body over her dog to prevent one of them from trying to make off with the animal.   I think birds are wonderful in nature.

However, I have no desire to own one.  No keets or canaries, or parrots for me.   They just aren't my thing.

We have lots of birds around our little farm (mostly barn swallows, which I love cause they eat nasty mosquitoes) none of which I raise or anything.
I like the cardinals & robins, love the hummingbirds enough that I actually feed them, and tolerate the field sparrows.
We also get a lot of little wrens & finches. I have a birdbath which they love to flop around in. We generally get about a dozen hummingbirds a year,
all fighting over the same little feeder. My mom has 2 big feeders & only about 6 regular hummingbirds, but she gets lots of other birds because she feeds them.
She lives just across the field, has tons of trees around. While we have one lonely tree!
Birds are, apparently, very territorial. I've had bluejays swoop at me when I get near their nests & hummingbirds get real pissy when you take their feeders down to clean/fill.
But they eat bugs (hummingbirds kill bumblebees & wasps too) so I really don't mind them.

We also have a fox nearby this year...very pretty little critters!

And yeah, hate possums...just big rats in my book & dumber than cows.

ETA: no inside/caged birds for me! I had a bad experience in college ... a stupid roommate bought lovebirds for her boyfriend but he couldn't keep pets, so we had the joy of them in our apartment. It wouldn't have been so bad, except the stupid twit let them out of their cages daily (so they could feel 'free'  ::) ) and they would fly around & shit on everything. I finally told her that if she did not cease this activity that the birds would be 'really free'. The next day she took them to her boyfriends.

For me chickens are possibly the dumbest creatures in the world or seen from a different point of view the most scheming evil bastards alive. My F.I.L raises hens for eggs and they're pretty much free range. If I'm completely empty handed the bastards will keep their distance eyeing me up with contempt as if to say "We once ruled the world hairless chimp". The moment I'm carrying anything it's "Let's all swarm all over Alexia till she drops whatever she's carrying and hopefully fall down."

Free birds such as cardinals, swallows and robins I've got no problem with. Heck if it's winter, I always keep the old bread for them and I put out fresh warmish water for them to drink. Pigeons are flying rats and should be exterminated. I swear the bastards wait till I've just finished washing the car to take a crap on it.

A robin chased me down an alley when I was seven or eight six, dive-bombing my head the whole way. (In fairness, it all started with me walking over to take a peek at it's chick which was sitting on the lid of a garbage can. I didn't touch it or anything - didn't get anywhere near close enough!)

And seagulls are evil bastards. I've seen them team up to steal hot dogs and such from unsuspecting tourists. One will fly straight towards the person, and when he or she raises an arm to ward off the apparently attacking bird, another will swoop in snatch the food out of their other hand! Occasionally there will be a third one as well, presumably to dive in if things go wrong. The result of which is signs like this all around our public market. ;D

While visiting a wildlife sanctuary on the Gold Coast some years ago, it was the roaming emus that freaked my shit *right* out! They're big birds, and their heads and faces are decidedly reptilian. Just take one look and you can see that these birds are related to dinosaurs. Having lunch in the park was perilous. All the emus decided that what I thought was MY sandwich was in fact theirs, and I had 3 of them come up and eyeball me, shove their heads right in front of my face barely an inch away, while the forth one nicked off with my sandwich! Once the others saw it had succeeded in seperating me from my lunch, they all took off to the forth bird and it's prize, and shared my lunch between them.

Egg sandwich too.

Seagulls are absolutely evil. Our great family tradition of sitting on the beach or at the Marina to eat lunch on the weekend is always disturbed by multitudes of seagulls. Especially if we have a serve of their own "natural diet" - hot chips! :P

Growing up on a beach, we saw seagulls steal and eat anything they thought was edible.  Especially hotdogs that were on the grill.  Even had them attack a fishing line that was being cast out with bait on it.  My mom had to chase the bird down the beach to get the rod and reel back and to try and keep the stupid gull from swallowing the hook.

I've got 3 birds.  2 budgies, and an hand reared albino cockatiel.  The budgies are called DJ and Twitter (Twit for short), the cockatiel is called Phoenix.  DJ is my oldest.  Hee's over 8 hears old and tends to keep to himself these days.  In his younger years different story though.  He used to roll one of those plastic cat balls over the house, hat a thing for a little toy ladder with a twirling mirror on it (would try to fornicate with it) still loves his booze, if I've got a glass of red he's there.

 Phoenix is quite often on my shoulder trying to get a pat.  Loves flying around the living room at top speed, often tries to land on doors but puts the landing gears on too late, so gets stuck behind them.  He also does a really off key rendition of the mexican hat dance. 

Twit's a new one.  My husband found the little guy wandering around on the ground at work and took him in.  He looked old and on his last legs: his claws were extremely long, his beak was overgrown, and he could barely open his eyes for face mites.  Took him home, and introduced him to the gang.  The others weren't too enthused.  Phe had to do the whole big bird thing - stand on top of the cage with his crest up and wings out.  DJ wandered in, had a look then wandered over to talk to a wall.  Twit on the other hand can't leave the other two birds alone.  A few months later, and his claws are now properly trimmed, and the face mites are all cleared up.  And by all appearances he is only a very young bird.  Quite timid, but we're sorting that bit out.

Had a wattle bird for a while there too (a very big honeyeater).  We found it went it was only a week old, it had fallen out of the nest and hit its heat.  Was a little brain damaged, but nothing it wouldn't recover from, if only partially.  Got a photo of it somewhere on this computer.  Motley little thing, but quite smart.  It liked to untangle nots and could undoe the most complicated in seconds.  It was hopeless at eating mealworms - would drop half of them on the cage floor.  But it was quite tame.  It used to jump out of its cage, find us, clamber up and try to lick inside an ear or up a nose.  Got a lot of giggles that.  He was funny with Phoenix, too, as he used to think the crest was a flower, and chase after it.  Phe would always look at him as if to say, 'what are you doing mate'

We stayed at one the on sight hotels and they opened one of the parks early to the hotel guest (a different one each day). We went to MGM for breakfast and were eating outside. One lady got up to get some butter and a bird hopped right up on the table and grabbed her toast. She wasn't gone for more the a few seconds. The birds had no fear of humans and there were many signs posted around saying not to feed the wildlife, but the "wildlife" fed itself.

See, it's unhealthy for wildlife not to have a fear of humans. That's why it is necessary for humans to occasionally eat some of them. It reminds them that they should be afraid of us. People, however, have gotten feeble and toothless, and so the wildlife no longer properly fears humans as predators. With the wildlife not properly fearing humans, detrimental human-wildlife confrontations result which are harmful to both.

Humans like to believe we're still at the top of the food chain and nothing will upset us.  Wildcats have been reported in a nearby area, and people were warned to keep an eye on young children and pets.  What amazed me was the number of people who just didn't believe it.  "Wildcats?  Near Boston?  Nonsense." 

I keep waiting to hear that a baby got carried off,  and if that will be enough to make them believe.

It used to be that animals kept to their area, and when we went into it, we'd be likely to have a gun.   But, we're taking all of their area, we don't run around with guns, and human society gives for some pretty easy pickings for animals.  Why hunt when you can go down to the dumpster behind McDonalds and get all the food you want?

I've always thought that people in general have a whole 'there is people and then there are animals attitude' as if homo sapien is seperate from all other living things - an exception.    In my believe, we are animals, the same as birds, dogs, monkeys, guinea pigs, zebras etc.  Nothing more, nothing less.  We have our strengths and weaknesses.  We are smarter than many animals, but we can't see as well as some, can't hear as well as others, can't run as fast etc.  Certainly, animals seem less intelligent than us, and essentially have a different culture to us, but to me, we are all nothing more than animals.

I don't understand people who build homes in the woods, like these new subdivisions, then complain when they see a bear wanders by or see a wild cat in their back yard.
People seem to have a compulsion to complain about anything.  When I was living in the city, people used to complain about the noise coming from the nightclubs and complain louder still about live bands.  That and any other issue about living in a city (ie. traffic).  The way I see it, its the city.  If you want to live there, put up with it.  Personally, I actually quite enjoyed living in the city.  I got to hear the Super Cars buzzing away, I saw the Olympic torch arrive in our city when the Sydney Olympics was on from my own window and a million other amazing things, and everything I ever wanted was just around the corner.  I never needed to drive a car or anything like that.

Seconded. To a point. A human's very presence in nature alters nature. So there is definitely an "otherness" with people and animals. Case in point-- our anthropomorphizing of animals. We can't help it-- how can we not? We don't know what it's like to be a bear for example-- with a sense of smell many times greater than a bloodhound. There is no point of reference, physically and mentally for that.

Also, we tend to vilify or romanticize certain animals for how they reflect back on us. A very mammal-centric, human-centric rubric which always irks me. Not too long ago, someone was telling me that they saw an animal in trouble and had to rescue it-- not for the sake of rescuing it- but because it was beautiful to her. Well, how ego-stroking was that? Did she want a cookie or something? She should've just pat herself on the back like my sims do.

I don't understand people who build homes in the woods, like these new subdivisions, then complain when they see a bear wanders by or see a wild cat in their back yard.
People seem to have a compulsion to complain about anything.  When I was living in the city, people used to complain about the noise coming from the nightclubs and complain louder still about live bands.  That and any other issue about living in a city (ie. traffic).  The way I see it, its the city.  If you want to live there, put up with it. 
Heh. What I have NEVER understood is when the news covers the story of a break in where the poor yokel just never locked their doors. No one deserves to be broken into, but lock your goddamn doors, people. If I hear another "we don't lock our doors in this neighborhood" line again, I'll scream.

Every animal "alters" nature just by being there. Look at what happens to an ecosystem when an outside plant or animal gets put there -- rabbits in Australia, various water-hungry plants where I live. Or if an animal gets removed, as when predators are wiped out. The balance gets totally farked. Nor are human animals "smarter" than other animals. For instance, horses wouldn't be very good at being human, but we'd be quite terrible at being horses. Not to mention the fact that we're the only ones "smart" enough to wipe out almost all life on Earth if we wanted. (Though actually, I'm not sure if we could get the bacteria and insects that make up most life.) Brilliant!

Humans drive cars and we spread out everywhere, taking land we don't need, using far too many resources, etc. We're like rabbits in Australia, except for the entire world. Since we supposedly have the intelligence and foresight to know better, this makes us the stupidest animals, since we don't actually use our skills.

We have problems like that in Vermont all the time. The biggest issue is transplants from the big cities like New York and Boston who come up here expecting to have a nice little country life without understanding that the animals were there before they were. So they call the Parks Service or the Police all upset because a black bear or fisher cat broke into their improperly secured garbage, or their kitchen because they don't lock up at night or put figure they can leave their stuff in open dumpsters or cans on the sidewalk like they did in the city and not have animals get into it. The other issue is inexperienced campers. Big issue around here because most bear and wildcat attacks are caused by people who do not put their food items in airtight containers to begin with and then do something stupid like storing the food boxes and food coolers in their tent (really bad and incredibly stupid idea).

Exactly my point too dstar!  You can live among the wild life if you respect the fact that they live there too and if you leave a garbage buffet out in the yard they are going to take advantage of it, if you leave a door or garage open they will wonder in .

 I am from the north pole, and now family back home have issues with polar bears wondering in land because the ice is melting. Polar bears are aggressive and hard to kill because their skin is so thick. You need to aim for the head and hope to god you don't miss.

Have you ever read "Death in Yellowstone"? It details all the grotesque ways people have died at Yellowstone because they ignored signs and/or did the opposite of the advice of rangers. 99% of the deaths were from pure stupidity.  People who dived into the hot springs and boiled to death-- walking around the wilderness, bewildered in leather dress-shoes-- asking in amazement if the surroundings were real or an amusement park (i kid you not). They act like the wildlife are interactive characters, like in disneyland and get gored or trampled.
Out of the whole book, there were only 2 or 3 deaths that made me sad. A little boy who got some hot water from the springs in his eye, then dove into the hot springs, mistaking it for normal water and died. A unleashed dog that dove into the hot springs (his owner then dove in to save it despite his friends trying to stop him-- both died). And a woman who was camping alone and eaten by a bear.

The woman was the only one that seemed to have followed all reasonable precautions. But despite her preperation and knowledge there are no garantees.

So basically, the dog, the kid, and the woman. The rest I chalk up to natural seleciton.

I'd like to point out that what you're describing there are alien species introduced by the idiocy of people. Rabbits were introduced by white people in austrailia because they thought it would make them feel at home to hunt game that they had from home. My original point was that any photographer, natural scientist, naturalist who tries to observe nature can never take what they see as "natural" because their human presence alters natural behavior. Take the praying mantis for example. For decades people thought they ate eachother when mating, but that was a grossly exaggerated behavior due to the way the scientists orchestrated the mating. They do sometimes, actually. But its more like "sometimes" vs. a requirement as previously thought.

Happens with domestic animals too, and half the time, its not even a case of the animal behaving aggresively, but playing a little too rough and drawing a little blood.

In high school, we got a dobie pup.  Sweet creature, he was, and since we didn't clip his ears [ his tail had already been docked 8grrr*] he looked as sweet as he was.  But he was also a goober.  When he hit adolescence, he decided the female goats were female dogs and spent a lot o time trying to chase them down for fun.  And dogs nip at the necks of their girlfriends....he got too good of a nip, though it didn't scare the goat, just confuse her, but the vet said if a dobie draws blood it will become vicious and hurt the kids, so my mom had him put down - she should have known better, too.

Same thing happens with domesticated wild animals.  People are pretty sure the 'attack' on Siegfried [or was it Roy?] wasn't an attack, but a case where the cat thought his friend was in trouble and tried to pick him up like you would a cub.  Disastrous, but not a case of a wild animal attacking.  A domesticated wild animal is still domesticated - but even the most domestic animals are dangerous if the human is stupid.

And some animals have been domesticated for generations, but are still considered wild, because the fur industry doesn't want their breeding stock turned in a pat - such as the domestic fox breeds - and yes, the red fox used for fur and raised on ranches is most definitely domesticated, just like minks, chickens, cows and the like.  Then there are the pet breeds like the Fennec, which were originally domesticated for food, then it was realized they made good pets too.

Very good point. I just don't understand how people can want to have "exotic" pets and expect them to not attack or play roughly. It makes me incredibly sad when I hear stories how some lady's pet tiger bit her arm off, or drew blood and suddenly they're not "fit" for keeping as a pet. They shouldn't be pets, they aren't pets. Collect foreign china or something, stupid humans. Not animals. ><

My god. Those people are the worst. You just know that THEY know that deep down, they're horribly bland,  stupid, boring people, and that scares them to death. Getting an "exotic" pet is just to flatter themselves and convince themselves that they're exotic by association. In the end, its the animal that suffers. I just hope they get a little revenge before they're inevitably put down.

 I have an exotic pet, he was a rescue. The scarlet Macaw is one of the largest parrots and are very intelligent and could also break your bones with their beaks. We tried looking into an animal sanctuary to take him, none close will because they only deal with domestic wild critters. We would have to send him to florida on our own money , which would be around 2 thousand dollars. Plus the stress of being quarantined may kill him.
 Max is too be respected, he is very love able but will bite if threatened... he was abused and still has issues.  so idiot neighbours who want me to introduce their kids to Max I say NO. He hates fingers coming at his face and that is the first things kids do... or they pull his feathers, another big no no.
 Idiots get these birds and have no idea they require tons of special care and can be dangerous. We respect Max and he respects us... he is more of a rommate then a pet  lol!

Post by: SoggyFox on 2009 May 11, 18:53:34
Exactly - all animals, not just the wild ones, should be treated with respect and love.  My cats, dog and snake are family.  There are some things they aren't allowed to do, but its little thngs like the cats not being allowed in the basement if no one is down there [because then they are stuck down there without food, water and a littlerbox] or allowed outside [we have a lot of dogs in the neighborhood, as well as hawks and of course traffic.]  Its for their good, not to be cruel.

And having a 6 and a half foot long constrictor as family teaches alot of respect.  She is active, but she likes to curl around my neck [its warmest there] and so I have to keep an eye on her when she is being held.  She hasn't tried to hurt me, but she has hugged a bit too tight a time or two and I've had to shift her around to breath properly.

I have no problem with rescued 'wild' animals being taken in - if someone is willing to take the risks and not blame the animal if they get hurt, then that's fine.  I take risks of getting clawed every day, and its rarely an attempt on my kitties to hurt me - they get startled and leap away from my lap, or play a little rough.  My mom got bit by our dog when he got bitten in the butt while she was holding him [ to get him out of a fight with said buttbiter] and she never got mad at him - she knew she shouldn't have scooped him up.  And he did a number to her face.  That's how I grew up - as I said, she should have known better on the Dobie, but she was worried about my baby sisters who were pretty small still, but I grew up with animals being a part of the family - even the chickens, turkeys and goats were respected.

Oh there were the height of stupid experiments in Australia.  They introduced cats in order to get the rabbits, and the cats mostly died or went feral eating all the things that didn't have inbuilt fear of fucking cats; and they introduced moths to get rid of the damn prickly pear they introduced too.  If they had genetic engineering in those days they would have invented some super creature designed to eat prickly pears and rabbits, but that they later found had a desire for arable land and humans.

Just a thought...humans are predators too, originally we hunted to survive and killed to protect our own...and also i think theres a part of humanities makeup that just has the urge to kill, the need to assert power and authority over others by whatever means it takes. Its human nature...but of course centuries of evolution have turned us into the domesticated creatures that we are now...soft living has dulled our senses and made us stupid...we used to be alert and respectful of the animal kingdom, and feared it as we should. The remark from Darqstar on waiting to hear a baby being carried of...and their stupid naivetee that these creatures are not real/shouldnt be there/ wont encroach on their property made me think, though Darqstar was refering to a wild creature it reminded me of the stupidity of (some) parents with regards to their children...and that nothing will happen to their kids. I lived in an area where many families let their very young children roam the area and further...these were 2/3 year olds....these kids roamed around unwatched anywhere they liked for hours, no one checked on them...we had a kids coming to play with my children but upon being asked if their parents knew where they were...they said they didnt...i couldve been anyone...these kids went in anyones houses. I had a friend of my daughters come round..., so i asked her if her mum knew where she was, no was the answer...we were going out so i took her home...no one was there...i didnt have it in me to leave this 4 year old wandering around unable to go home...so we had to postpone going out, i put a letter through the parents door, explaining the situation, 2 hours later...no parents...i called again...theyd just got in. Said theyd gone to do some shopping, they hadnt being able to find their daughter before going out and didnt know where she was...so just went out anyway!
Anything couldve happened to her!
The point im trying to make is that...people are also blind to another predator...that is the human predator. If there going to ignore the obvious predators of wild animals, theres little reason to believe that they would acknowledge the less obvious predator that could be living next door....people just think it will never happen to them. If that little girl had gome missing in the worse way possible, the parents wouldve been quick to say that they only let her out of their sight for a minute.
Sadly where i used to live there were too many families allowing their barely out of nappies children to wander off, and worse to allow older children to dress like prostitutes. A 13 year old girl that lived nearby dated men in their 20's. The mother thought it was great that her daughter( her child) could attract a man! He stayed over. They didnt seem to understand that he was a paedophile, no different to the men theyd watch on tv news stories or read about in the paper that theyd be swearing about and saying how they should be strung up, that theyd be repulsed by what theyd done to some child. They couldnt connect they were allowing such to happen to their own child...that it was happening under their noses!
Its the same with these idiots and wild animals, they hear about it, read about it...but dont connect it with the wild animal in their bins or that theyve adopted as a pet!

Sorry to go on... ;D

Koalas are a poor invasive species because they eat only a single specific food source that isn't native to anywhere else. Maybe if we genetically engineered some deadly killer koalas that were extremely clever, conniving creatures that ate humans...like, say, "Phascolarctus Bityness"...

You would like the drop bears, Pescado.  But they could live quite happily in California - LA has a surfeit of eucalyptus trees - they're drier over there than they are here and constantly fall onto houses, so you would get plenty of drop bears raining down eating you all.

Not to mention more considerate! They certainly never call the cops if your music is too loud, or drive by at forty miles over the speed limit. Hell, they'll even dispose of your garbage, if you let them. Very good neighbors, indeed. Bears, wolves, moose, fox, even freaking sandhill cranes, they're all predictable. They act exactly like they always do and only surprise you if you're dumb enough to stumble across them unawares. Of the many, many moose I've met, only one has been truly insane. I cannot, however, say the same of humans. Personally, I've never understood why people get all upset when they see one of those wimpy little lower 48 black bears at the community playground. I'd be more freaked out if it were an old, bald guy with a big beard and a dark outfit lurking around the kiddos.

Firstly, i am not a Dude!
I wouldn't really call it an exaggerated use of ellipses (An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence) its just a habit that i write in that fashion as i'm thinking something through in my head...don't even realise i write like that sometimes. There i've done it again! I actually don't write like that most of the time!
If i'm ESL? well not sure what that means, after not having heard of the abbreviation before. I looked it up.
ESL - English as a Second Language. Is that what you are refering to?
I'm British, therefore i am English. English being my language and the country that actually spells and pronounces the English language correctly...unlike other English speaking countries that spell and pronounce common words incorrectly, and think it's the correct way! I think i know the English language well enough. Also using ellipses is certainly not an indication of being ESL, so why think that? Anyone in any language can use ellipses, i can not see how its a sign that i am not of English speaking origin.
Don't get me wrong, i doubt you intended offense, but i do not understant how using ellipses indicates a possible ESL!!!
I understand that it may be annoying (but not wrong) as ESkimo Pie said may be the issue so i will try to curb my ellipse abuse...if you'll refrain from using the word "Dude" as i find that irritating as i'm quite frankly not at all what the word alludes too! :)

Do we really need to bring in the whole "English language debate?" The language as a whole is bastardized from Latin/German/French/Norse with many others thrown in and really doesn't have anything that can actually be called "true" in its form. There are different regions of the world that use the language to communicate with and arguing semantics is going to get us nowhere but into a massive shit pot of an argument that, frankly, I couldn't give a shit less about. Wanna argue the proper use of the tool we communicate with? Take it to a site that specializes in it. So long as we understand each other in what we say, whether it be written or spoken in form, that ought to suffice.

I think what ChaosInAMinor meant is that posts with an overuse of ellipses can be difficult to understand. As a general rule, once per post is plenty, otherwise it can be difficult to follow what is being said. Also, as a side note, I wouldn't worry too much about being called "dude". Here in the midwest, at least, it gets used plenty as a slang term for both genders.

Incidentally, your post lead me to believe that you are confusing American English and British English, which are in fact two different things, thus neither can be more "correct" than the other. (The English teacher in me just had to point that out. ;))

We spell colour with a U, they don't - just how they flow. Get over it already ::)

Also British does not equal English goddamnit, it equals BRITISH. Britain is made up of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English people and are known collectively as British.

You know, I have always wondered about that.  Seriously, I have.  But I was too afraid to ask, for fear it was something that everyone *but* me knew.  So, thank you for clearing that up for me.

Now, where does "UK?" fit into this?  I know it means United Kingdom, but what area does that cover?

Um dude.
Whatever problem you have with Chaos is yours to deal with however you see fit. However

I'm British, therefore i am English. English being my language and the country that actually spells and pronounces the English language correctly...unlike other English speaking countries that spell and pronounce common words incorrectly, and think it's the correct way!

How was that was appropriate? You just insulted a LARGE contingent of members here for absolutely no reason. Good luck with all that.


 
FYI, some of us are ESL or EOL(to be more exact) and write better than you. So drop the fucking attitude.


No problem with Chaos at all, just making a point that using ellipses should not evoke a reply that i may be ESL. The two do not connect together. I just explained that i was in fact...English.
As for the remark that you write better English than me, your post certainly was not proof of that. Using abbreviations for "for your information" and swearing are certainly not better.
As for insulting a whole contingent of members, that was not my intention and i apologise if i have. I don't have an atitude, i made a valid point...that i was British and English and just clarifying that i wasn't ESL. Reading back i can see that what i said was not appropiate and really wasn't a suitable reply to what Chaos said anyway! All i can think is that i totally misunderstood what he/she was saying.
Though i never actually mentioned any particular English speaking country or said  i was refering to every single one of them...i said 'other'.Take it which way you want, if you take it personally thats up to you. Your atitude is no better.

I apologise to anyone i offended, was not intentional.


I think what ChaosInAMinor meant is that posts with an overuse of ellipses can be difficult to understand. As a general rule, once per post is plenty, otherwise it can be difficult to follow what is being said. Also, as a side note, I wouldn't worry too much about being called "dude". Here in the midwest, at least, it gets used plenty as a slang term for both genders.

Incidentally, your post lead me to believe that you are confusing American English and British English, which are in fact two different things, thus neither can be more "correct" than the other. (The English teacher in me just had to point that out. ;))

Dude over here tends to be used towards the male population and was popular as a term in the 1970's.

But now you've all carried on the conversation and turned it into a debate...i have a few replies to those posted. Didn't want a debate on the English Language,  i was annoyed because of a stupid remark that because i used ellipses a little too much, that English was possibly not my first language.

I am not confusing American or British English at all. Whereas i agree that the old English language is a combination of many going back through centuries of history...thankyou to Paden for the history lesson! American English still originates from British English ( which was really just English until the British Empire in the 19th-20th centuries swept through the world spreading the language,thus we now call it British English, well we in Britain don't...we just call it English!) As with the U.S.A, British colonisation brought it to you, after all the U.S.A has no officiall language, only those adopted from other countries as you were colonised.
I understand that over the years the U.S.A has adapted the language to it's own and now it's called American English but the word English kind of gives it's origin away...it still is a bastardisation of the English language that we brought over to you. So therefore the British English is actually more correct than the American English...they were never originally two different languages, just one, that you have changed dramatically and is now called American/Canadian English (wherever you're from) . Or Australia.

Im not an expert on any of this, but i don't pretend i am either.

I'm British, therefore i am English. English being my language and the country that actually spells and pronounces the English language correctly...unlike other English speaking countries that spell and pronounce common words incorrectly, and think it's the correct way! I think i know the English language well enough.

Heck, I'm British and I'm offended by this. You do realise that all countries around the world that learn English as a second language learn it from us, right?

We spell colour with a U, they don't - just how they flow. Get over it already ::)

Also British does not equal English goddamnit, it equals BRITISH. Britain is made up of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English people and are known collectively as British.

I never said that being British equalled English...get your facts straight. I said i was English as i mentioned the English Language. As English is England's native language. But Ireland, Wales and Scotland have their own native language and i was discussing the English language...not them.

Reply to Darqstar, Simsrocks and Pickles. The U.K is England, Scotland, WAles and Northern Ireland, also known as Britain (or Great Britain) We seem to like lots of names over here  :D

Again apologies to anyone i offended  8)

I thought the Picts and Celts were the original settlers there and were driven out by the Anglos that became the English peoples of today. What happened to their language? What about the Bretons or are they counted as the same peoples? I have so many questions because my ancestors that hailed from England buggered the hell outta there in the early 1600's. :D

I wouldn't really call it an exaggerated use of ellipses (An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence) its just a habit that i write in that fashion as i'm thinking something through in my head...don't even realise i write like that sometimes. There i've done it again! I actually don't write like that most of the time!
If i'm ESL? well not sure what that means, after not having heard of the abbreviation before. I looked it up.
ESL - English as a Second Language. Is that what you are refering to?
I'm British, therefore i am English.
I think the ESL thing was maybe a bit harsh, and the original point was lost in whatever baggage those initials imply.
What I think that person was getting at is that your post was long and seemingly unorganized. I myself just skimmed over it. No offense intended. I was too lazy at the time to give it my full attention.

West Coast too. I call my fellow gal pals "dude" sometimes. Calling them "sister" or "chicka" or something is just TOO girly for my taste. And sometimes it just comes out. For a lot of people "dude" is gender-neutral. In fact, most people use "dude" in place of words like "wow" or "Whoa" nowadays. It's not even a word anymore, as much as it is a gasp. Or a grunt.

Then again, I think most of my peers and younger folk talk in grunts and clicks anyway. (now all we need is the dolphins to take offense at that comment)

Koalas are a poor invasive species because they eat only a single specific food source that isn't native to anywhere else. Maybe if we genetically engineered some deadly killer koalas that were extremely clever, conniving creatures that ate humans...like, say, "Phascolarctus Bityness"...
Do I look like I'm picky about how I get my koala invasion?

All I know is that the 80's have promised us many things and are yet to deliver. The only ones of worth being voluminous hair and cigar smoking/possibly airline piloting koalas.

Wow. I wasn't expecting to offend you so much. I apologize. I threw in the ESL bit because if you were, I didn't want you to think I was being mean. I'm sorry that it may have come across as offensive. And dude is gender neutral out here, too. It's just slang, like "mate" out there. So, sorry for any misunderstanding.

Now that my apologies are done, I hope you don't fall off your "The English here is sooo much more superior" high horse and hurt yourself. That had nothing to do with what I was saying.

Also British does not equal English goddamnit, it equals BRITISH. Britain is made up of Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English people and are known collectively as British.

Actually, some of us yanks spell it with a u too - all those British writers I grew up reading, at a guess.  I've even gotten points off on papers written for a music class in college, for using british spellins [ turns out my prof's ex-husband was british :) ].

As for american English verses british english - some of it was natural linguistic evolution - some of it was on purpose right after the Revolutionary War.

I'm not offended, personally - I took it as being a tongue-in-cheek sort of comment.  I don't care if its -al-u-min-ium- or -a-lu-min-um-, its still this flimsy, silvery metal. :D

Editted to add - Oh, and since no Brit pronounces English exactly the same way, which way is proper?  West-side London?  Liverpool?  Yorkshire?

Also - There were plenty of -native- languages in the Americas before the bloody Europeans came over and pushed aside the natives.  Don't get me started, but the notion that the Natives were ignorant savages pisses me off, and that rage is a bit high still, after having fresh reminders of what -exactly- the Europeans and their descendants did, having gone to Cherokee this past weekend.  It was the exact same bloody attitude Julius Caesar had towards the Celts.  Not to mention that a good chunk of the settlers here were -not- British.  Its just the founding fathers were.

If I sound bitchy, then oh well - but I really get pissed at the attitude that either noone lived here before the Europeans sailed over, or they just aren't worth mentioning.

 I am native, Inuit to be exact or Eskimo. When I say I am esl  most assume I am not Canadian or north American. I grew up speaking Inuktitut , then french. When I say I am from the north pole I mean it! lol there was 300 people in my town and there was no roads in or out just plans in the summer. Even tho I am an adult I had to take ESL classes when I moved to nova scotia. It was funny because I was sitting in class with people who were not from canada, my people always have been here but I could not even order a coffee at tim Horton's.

 Native languages are still alive in some parts of the world. The language of the Celts is too. Here in Nova Scotia  there is celtic schools that teach it .

 So thank you soggyfox for remembering us savages lol!

I think i know the English language well enough.

That to me says you're equating British as English. Also, would you class Scotland, Wales and Ireland as other English speaking countries? Cause the majority of us (I'm scottish) speak English, and have our native language as our second language as its been beaten out of us for centuries by well, the English. I still say that you were snobbish and offensive telling others, the majority being American, that they are wrong for spelling things differently. Heck, we as a nation spell things differently from region to region, depending on the language and dialect we use.

For those confused by our numerous names, we use the abreviation of UK in the day-to-day conversations and Great Britain is used during sports such as the Olympics. As a matter of fact its less Great, more Britain; I might be wrong but Great Britain relates to our Empire days. Oh and Eire is also known as the Republic of Ireland. Yes, we like having many names for our countries :D

The 'proper' English is the Queens English, which is posh without a regional accent. But we commoners like to fuck around with it all the time :D

*raises hand* This seems like a good time to mention some pointless trivia. So, when the United States took a vote on our 'official' language, English won out by one vote. We were ::this:: close to speaking German. Or at least that's what they told me in all those damn history classes that never made it even as far as the Civil War. Personally, I'd rather speak Spanish (I can haz EZ verb conjugation), but, yeah...

Misunderstanding over with on my behalf...believe me, the English here is not always superior, sometimes i struggle to understand some people because of the slang in our language and the way its being degraded. It's ok , i just hurt my self a little falling of that damned horse. I should never have got on it in the first place! ;D

No saying i am British therefore i am English does not equate British as English. English is England's native language, we all in Britain have our native languages even if they are no longer our first language.  Scotland, Wales and Ireland are English speaking but its not your native language. To be honest, don't balme the British for beating your native language out off you. You could revive your own language if you wanted to...thats your choice!
I never actaully stated a country, i thougt this forum was quite mixed.
If you think im snobbish and offensive, fair play, your opinion. Im unaffected by it.
Also as a nation i can honestly say that ive never noticed that we spell things differently. Say things differently only because of the tones of our accents, but not spelll. Ive never come across words spelt differently anywhere in the country, only words spelt incorrectly. I'd like a few examples of that how different regions here in the U.K spell words differently. Come on...educate me! ;)

Anyone else, non U.K residents,  accept you spell differently due to the language being adapted, thats fine, not an issue. This is to Anyerfillag only.

Also to Soggyfox,

Whom was this intended to?
Because i never said all settlers were British, i said the English ones wouldve taught you the English language as did the European settlers teach you theirs. Also i am well aware that America had its own native languages and people before we Europeans and whom ever else came over and did what we did. I actually have always had the opinion that what the Europeans did to native Americans was atrocious and though we saw the Indian tribes as savages, it was in fact us that were the savages. I don't believe we had any right to do what we did. I certainly dont have the atitude that no-one lived there before the Europeans went over.

Okay, I've taken no sides in this, because honestly, Ellipsis don't bother me.  I see them merely as pauses, but I can't judge what others think, so I just stayed out of it.

But honestly, Ferncapel, what you wrote above is about the coldest thing I've seen someone say in awhile.  The Irish and the Scottish weren't just convinced to give up their language, they could be killed for using it.  It took brave people to make it so those languages didn't die.  The same with many Native American dialects.  Some are completely gone, but others were saved by people willing to risk their lives to keep speaking it, and to teach it to others. 

It's not a simple matter to say, "Hey, you know what?  Fuck it, we're going to speak Gaelic and you'll have to deal."  First of all, there aren't a lot of people who can speak it.  Also, because of the status as an almost dead language, to revive it as the national language will likely put up a barrier between themselves and the rest of the world, which no one can really afford to do these days.

When you take away someone's language, it's not just the language, it's taking away a part of them.  How would you feel if someone came to you and said, "Nope, you're not allowed to speak English.  If you do, we'll kill you.  Oh and your religion?  WRONG, you can only worship our God, the one true God.  And while we're at it, that Internet you go on?  No more.  We don't believe in the internet. And let's take away any other hobbies you might enjoy, they aren't what we consider to be appropriate hobbies.  And your land?  It's not yours anymore either, it's ours.  You can't have land until you worship our God and become just like us."  How would you feel if they destroyed your culture?  Forbid you from telling any stories of your family and your people?  Forbid you to read books written by writers of your nationality? Forbid you to sing the songs of your people?

I'm not saying we should beat up the British (Or, every white American for that matter)  what's done is done.  However, to just casually brush it off like it was no big deal, just doesn't sit right with me.  And the way you said they could revive their language, forgive me if I misunderstood, but that came across to me like you were almost accusing them of being lazy about it.  "It's your own fault you're not speaking your native language!" when that is so not the case.

That is actually an urban myth in both the US and Germany. This is from Wikipedia:

Quote
The Muhlenberg legend is a popular urban legend in the United States and Germany. According to the legend, Frederick Muhlenberg kept German from becoming an official language of the United States. At the heart of this legend is a vote in the United States House of Representatives in 1794, in which a group of German immigrants asked for the translation of some laws into German. This petition was rejected by a 42-41 vote and Muhlenberg was later quoted as having said "the faster the Germans become Americans, the better it will be." The United States has no statutory official language; English has been used as on a de facto basis, owing to its status as the country's predominant language. At times various states have passed their own official language laws.

 People like to think that it happened a million years ago, but the last residential school in Canada only closed down in the 1980's. I think 1984 to be exact. My father had sisters taken away never to be seen or heard from again. When I went to high school it was a church school who made us speak french only and made fun of our faith and culture. And even tho I am Canadian, I get told by strangers here in nova scotia to speak English or get out of "their" country. Just on Sunday I was on the bus speaking my native to my young son and I was told by 2 old men that I should go back to my country and that "foreigners" like me take all the jobs. Idiots had no clue.
 I do not hate all white people, I hate the government for covering up history and not educating people. anyways that is enough heavy thinking for me today lol

And let's take away any other hobbies you might enjoy, they aren't what we consider to be appropriate hobbies.  And your land?  It's not yours anymore either, it's ours.  You can't have land until you worship our God and become just like us."  How would you feel if they destroyed your culture?  Forbid you from telling any stories of your family and your people?  Forbid you to read books written by writers of your nationality? Forbid you to sing the songs of your people?

I'm not saying we should beat up the British (Or, every white American for that matter)  what's done is done.  However, to just casually brush it off like it was no big deal, just doesn't sit right with me.  And the way you said they could revive their language, forgive me if I misunderstood, but that came across to me like you were almost accusing them of being lazy about it.  "It's your own fault you're not speaking your native language!" when that is so not the case.

 

I never said that what we did as English people was correct, it was certainly wrong, as is any conflict where one forces another to conform to what they believe. It was our fault originally,but don't keep wallowing in history, in fact because of whta happened in history it should give them morre incentive to revive it, after all they have their own government now and have broke away rom the English a little. They shoud petition their government to teach it in schools as part of their history and culture.The Cornish people are working hard and steadily at reving their language, their version of the Celtic language and more and more people are learning it. So if someone, say from Scotland, felt that strongly about losing their language...then do something about it. Even if just for themselves. I certainly was not accusing them of being lazy. Reviving a language is a long slow and hard process, but it can be done, even if not by the majority, then by a minority. But you can not forever blame the past and what happened, you have to look forward and make changes and if language is one of them, then good.
To be honest, our culture in England is slowly being destroyed because of the government and what it allows and when we can't even fly our own flag without offending people, we are already being told we can't do things regarding our own nationality. So i do understand what you are saying. Some things you have little control over, but some things you can have control over.

Quote from: dusdeedawn
*raises hand* This seems like a good time to mention some pointless trivia. So, when the United States took a vote on our 'official' language, English won out by one vote. We were ::this:: close to speaking German. Or at least that's what they told me in all those damn history classes that never made it even as far as the Civil War. Personally, I'd rather speak Spanish (I can haz EZ verb conjugation), but, yeah...
I was under the impression that the United States has no official language, so I'm curious about this vote. Was it a colonial thing?
Actually, it is simply a not-trueity (http://www.snopes.com/language/apocryph/german.asp).

Hmmm, it's just as I suspected. Poor dusdeedawn was being taught history by a pathological liar. Dusdee, it's obvious that you'll need a crash course in American history to help undo some of the damage.

-George Washington was actually married to Martha. They were not shacking up.
-Aaron Burr shot and killed Alexander Hamilton not George Hamilton.
-Ben Franklin didn't write Little Richard's Almanac.
-Tar and feathers was not a fashion trend.

The Irish have preserved their version of Gaelic. One of my favorite musical groups is Irish and has recorded traditional folk songs and written new songs in Irish Gaelic. Clannad, the band, is fluent in their native language. Enya (who is the lead singer's younger sister) sang with the group before she went solo. And by the way, I am an American (of German, English, Irish and Scots decent).

Anyway, cool bathroom. I am not sure what I'll use it for now, but I will use it at some point.

Actually, Ferncapel, you said there was no language here until the british got here.  It might not have been what you meant, but its what your said.

And I spent the weekend up in Cherokee North Carolina.  The signs and everything are dual lingual - english and cherokee.  Pretty looking language.  And since the town -is- the reservation, alot of the businesses were run by Cherokee too.  I tried to avoid the touristy shops and hit only the ones selling actual native crafted stuff - it was not at all easy, but I got some really nice things - a white fox dreamcatcher made from wood, sinew fur and feathers, and a doeskin [I'm pretty sure anyway] bag in white with a turquoise button.  I got one of them with my winnings from the casino, since I was determined to leave the money -there-.

Seriously though, while other languages are spoken here, English is the official language of the US - it might change, but it is now.

And as I understood it, Wales was forced to abandon their language [legally anyway] by the Welsh....unless my reading is off, the Tudors were welsh nobles before ruling england - and when they took the throne, they took away Welsh as a language [ not that they succeeded ]

"Grumbles softly." I seem to have lost my orginal reply. Though it may show up eventually, I basicly said, mankind itself has a history of doing all these things your discussing to itself. It is the nature of man to take what it desires, and destroy that which it does not understand. Throughout history mankind has destroyed culture after culture, language after language. Even today our children pervert the language to their desires, and their children will to. Laying blame on one specific group really is pointless, all you have to do is read "all" past accounts of conquest. This people did this, that people did that, and so on, and so on. Mankind takes what it wants, destroys what it does not.

Soggyfox...i did not say there was no language until the British got here...i suggest (nicely)that you read back. I said you had no official language, a point thats been repeated by other members on this thread. Its pretty obvious you had languages before Europe colonised you because you already had native Americans and and many other tribes. I said you had no official language...if you can find where i said you had no other language before the British came...then quote me. Because i can not remember saying that and can not find it reading back. If you find it...i'll hold my hands up and apologise. :)

As for your visit to Cherokee, North Carolina...i bet it was a fantastic trip. I admire the past and present Native Americans for keeping hold of their culture and traditions and lifestyles after 'we' colonist tried so hard to  (wrongfully) change them and even eradicate them. It ccould not have been easy. I hope they continue to hold on to their culture as so many others are being wiped out.

Realmscat, i totally agree with you. Too much is destroyed, and were all too blame in one way or another and at some point in history. That is why we should try to keep hold of what cultures and traditions we can.

Back on topic, that bathroom is very nice, great detailing.

Interesting choice of words "pervert the language to their desires". Nothing to do with you Realmscat just picking up on that. I've always found that expression fallacious because of it's derogatory connotation. I know it's not always true but the word perversion generally carries that weight. I think pliability is essential to the vitality of any language. Culture is a dynamic entity and in a constant state of flux. Language as a form of expression needs to adjust itself accordingly or it becomes redundant and useless. It's one thing to respect a language's heritage and uniqueness and to preserve it's integrity. However restricting it's ability to adapt and strangling it with outdated cultural idioms is it's death knell. The greatest strength of the English language and probably the sole reason for it's existence today is that it's a linguistic sponge. It takes whatever it needs at the moment and incorporates it. Always has and always will. That's it's thang, making itself relevant. That's why it's such a great language. You can twist it and turn and shape it and kick it in the balls, but it will always adapt. I love using English for exactly that reason. Any language that's not ready or willing to do that will eventually fade away because it'll no longer be useful or relevant.

Anyway, MOAR FREE STUFZ!!

No saying i am British therefore i am English does not equate British as English. English is England's native language, we all in Britain have our native languages even if they are no longer our first language.  Scotland, Wales and Ireland are English speaking but its not your native language. To be honest, don't balme the British for beating your native language out off you. You could revive your own language if you wanted to...thats your choice!

Also as a nation i can honestly say that ive never noticed that we spell things differently. Say things differently only because of the tones of our accents, but not spelll. Ive never come across words spelt differently anywhere in the country, only words spelt incorrectly. I'd like a few examples of that how different regions here in the U.K spell words differently. Come on...educate me! ;)

You did it again! British does not equal English! If I were to blame the British I would be blaming my own home country (Scotland) that did no wrong >:( If you're British, you're British. If you're English, you're English. Being British includes every country within Britain; are you half English and half something else?

I will admit I got the spelling part wrong.

The Irish and the Scottish weren't just convinced to give up their language, they could be killed for using it.  It took brave people to make it so those languages didn't die.  The same with many Native American dialects.  Some are completely gone, but others were saved by people willing to risk their lives to keep speaking it, and to teach it to others. 

When you take away someone's language, it's not just the language, it's taking away a part of them.  How would you feel if someone came to you and said, "Nope, you're not allowed to speak English.  If you do, we'll kill you.  Oh and your religion?  WRONG, you can only worship our God, the one true God.  And while we're at it, that Internet you go on?  No more.  We don't believe in the internet. And let's take away any other hobbies you might enjoy, they aren't what we consider to be appropriate hobbies.  And your land?  It's not yours anymore either, it's ours.  You can't have land until you worship our God and become just like us."  How would you feel if they destroyed your culture?  Forbid you from telling any stories of your family and your people?  Forbid you to read books written by writers of your nationality? Forbid you to sing the songs of your people?

THIS! You can have my unborn child for this! I try explaining this to people who have the same response and just don't understand how cruel the English where to the rest of the UK when it came to culture and language, and then Britain were towards the Native Americans.

I can't say as I disagree with you kenmtl.

Unless of course it is directed to me specificly. Like realmscat your a bitch.."LOL" I can't assume their is any malice in what anyone types unless it is clearly stated.

Just to clarify what i originally said... I know British does not equal English, that is so obvious! As being English is part of being British, it makes my statement, the use of 'therefore', true. It doesn't stae that British equates English at all and does not mean that English is the only consequence of being British. There are other consequences of being British and they are Irish, Welsh and Scottish. But i did not need to include them in my statement because i was also refering to the English language!

Also that was a genuine mistake that i used British where you've highlighted it, it should say English. I hold my hands up to that one. I apologise.

Also i'm 100% English...well at least that i know of!

Also i admit the English were cruel to the Scottish people, as they were to the Native Americans. I've never condoned our behaviour in any of these. I believe we were wrong through and through and i also agree and understand what Dargstar said, as if you'd read back you'd know. So i'm uncertain to what same response you are refering to. I was talking about your language only and your statement that we beat it out of you is what i replied to. I never disagreed with you.

Darqstar
Also the Gaelic language is not an almost dead language , its still used, though not everday, in certain parts of Scotland. It is in the decline due to the lack of need to use the language. Also Scotland has attempted to reverse the decline of the language with limited successs, but in some schools it is taught. Also the Scottish Government is working to promote the language in the media. So it can be done, and credit where credits due, they are working to maintain the language. I understand doing this is a long slow battle and can seem a losing battle So for an individual, trying to learn it just for themselves it would be time consuming when people have such busy lives so i do not think anyone is lazy for not trying...but for those with the time and want to learn, there are courses and groups that teach the language.

You've yet to give me examples of different spellings of words from one region to another in the U.K. I seriousley want to know as i have honestly never come across this before. I work inthe Tourist Industry for the U.K so encounter many people from all over the U.K and have never witnessed this. I even asked a few lovely individuals (from different regions) that i met today during work and they hadn't seen this either!

It doesn't stae that British equates English at all and does not mean that English is the only consequence of being British.

I don't want to start a thing here, but you did actually say that British equals English even if it was unintentional. Your original statement was:

I'm British, therefore i am English.

The only way to interpret that statement is to mean all British people are English.

This might be a bit clearer with an unrelated example:

"I am human, therefore I am a mammal."
vs.
"I am a mammal, therefore I am human."

The first sentence indicates that all humans are mammals, which is true. The second indicates that all mammals are human, which is definitely not true.

Again, I'm not trying to pick a fight here, and I'm certainly not trying to be the Grammar Ploice, but this is one of those cases where improper usage completely changes your meaning so I thought I'd point it out.

Now it's coming down to nitpicking and it's better off just put aside.  The world "almost" might mean one thing to me, and another to you.  A dead language is pretty easy to define.  Although, I have people who argue to me that you can't even call Latin a "dead" language, because it's still taught. 

By "Almost dead" I mean that it is a language that is almost never, if ever, the only language of a people, or a first language.  It's not, as far as I know.  It's a dual language, it might be taught in schools, but as far as I know, there aren't communities where children learn it as their first language because that's what their parents grew up knowing, so on and so forth.  There might be a deliberate effort to revive it, but by my personal definition, it's an almost dead language.  For a village/town/area to raise their children to speak it as their first language, the parents would have to know it as a second language, and then make a deliberate effort to not speak their first language, but to only speak Gallic so their children would learn it first and only, until taught another. 

And again, I might have misunderstood, but the comment came across like, "if you're not living in a country where everyone speaks their original native dialog, it's YOUR fault and you can't blame anyone else."  And that's just not true.

People like to think that it happened a million years ago, but the last residential school in Canada only closed down in the 1980's. I think 1984 to be exact. My father had sisters taken away never to be seen or heard from again. When I went to high school it was a church school who made us speak french only and made fun of our faith and culture. And even tho I am Canadian, I get told by strangers here in nova scotia to speak English or get out of "their" country. Just on Sunday I was on the bus speaking my native to my young son and I was told by 2 old men that I should go back to my country and that "foreigners" like me take all the jobs. Idiots had no clue.
 I do not hate all white people, I hate the government for covering up history and not educating people. anyways that is enough heavy thinking for me today lol

I understand that this is not ancient history by any means.  When I was born, there were still parts of the country where white people had to have their own bathrooms and water fountains because they couldn't risk using the same toilet that a person who wasn't white might have used.  I think it's actually a credit to how far we've come that the whole concept of being unable to stand the idea of sharing a sink or a bathroom with someone who isn't white, just is something I cannot wrap my head around, nor can most people I know. 

I just think that it doesn't do much good to continually beat ourselves up over it.  At this point, the past cannot be changed, the best that can be done is to go forward and try to make sure nothing like this ever happens again. 

THIS! You can have my unborn child for this! I try explaining this to people who have the same response and just don't understand how cruel the English where to the rest of the UK when it came to culture and language, and then Britain were towards the Native Americans.

No children, unborn or not.  However, were you to offer me a kitten, I'd find it hard to resist.   ;)

Not taking sides here (and also late to the party d/t being without internet last couple of days) but I like ellipses...use them all the time  :P
I think I use them a lot for where I would pause if I were talking instead of typing cause I kinda write like I speak much of the time & I hate starting new sentences for some reason.
I also hate starting sentences with "I" so usually just start a sentence without it. for example. when expressing my opinion (tend to speak that way too).
Part of that, I think, also comes from being a nurse & having to write a lot in a few words. Especially since I am quite "talky" as my niece says  ;D

You are very welcome, Paden.  My deepest apologies to your downloads folder! LOL  I did mean to ask - are there that many different shades of eyes?  I mean, you'll never use them all, will you?  :o

The problem with eyes is that they come in a set. You can't have one color without the whole set! Or, at least, I can't.
Also, PLANTS! Genius! Absolute genius!

I recently weeded a bunch of eyes out of my downloads & managed to get it down to 50 eyes + my defaults (bruno's Olivia eyes). I love bruno's eyes & my other favorites have to be Shady, Anva & Tabatha. ShojoAngel has some nice ones too. It all depends on the look I want my sim to have.

SapphireSims2 has a pirate theme going on right now with some nice stuff. Ya gotta register to dl I think but it is all free (of course!) These 3 are my favorite so far:

Fallin_Angel...you have 292 eyes! Yoou know i was astonsished at that then i saw that Paden had 999! I did read that right yeah? How do you find what youre looking for? It must take hours just to choose the eyes you want for a Sim!

313 actually (plus defaults) - 292 that I just downloaded today. And that's exactly the problem. I can't find the ones I want with that many eyes, which is why I now need to go in and whittle down the list. Otherwise I keep using the same few over and over again, even if they're not my favourites, because 300+ eyes is a lot to scroll through.

You think you've got it bad? My eye folder alone (which is divided into subfolders by creator) has, get this, nine hundred ninety-nine files in it and still growing when I find more. At the moment, though, I'm on the hunt for the steam punk stuff because of all of you guys! :D

I can beat you with my eye folder, Paden, 1114, not counting the ones I downloaded today, that haven't been added yet. Sadly, this is after a big clean up. *sigh* I am a hopeless download-a-holic.

I respectfully disagree. The best eyes ever are Phobia's Sahrha's Eyes (http://kinemortophobia.livejournal.com/tag/dl+-+eyes)!
I also really like enenen's Haribo eyes (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=10363.0). I downloaded the geneticized version (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=10458.0) and the best thing ever happened: I got a restaurant hostess with jet black hair, bright orange eyes, and the name of Patience Winchester. Favorite townie evar.
But I've looked at mine eye folder - it's only 343. I really like every single set that I have, so no changey changey planned on my part.

You. Are. Kidding. Me.

Quick question: if you download default eyes, the geneticized ones won't work in pre-created Sims?

ETA: The 2nd best ones, for me, are Pooklet's Yumedust's "Eye Love" on Anva's sclera (http://www.digitalperversion.net/gardenofshadows/index.php?topic=5104.0). Teh colors are so awesome.

Sorry, I don't know the answer to the question. But now that you bring up Anva, for me, my ultimate favorite. There are many other eyesets that I'll have great fondness for, but I reserve my obsessive love for hers alone. She's the best at making brown eyes that look like brown eyes you'd see in real life.

Anva's "fickle eyes" is my favorite set.

Random question, since we're talking about eyes. I understand default replacements - that's easy. But what is meant by 'geneticized' and 'townified'? I've tried figuring it out, but I just get more confused.


Title: Re: Your Prettiest Freesite Creation Find: Round Two (Apparently)
Post by: Pescado on 2009 May 17, 00:13:45
Basically, it means that they have been hacked so that they will appear on townies and don't use the custom-eye superdominance rules. However, like with all "custom genetics", once you put them in your game, they are stuck there FOREVER and you can never remove them without screwing up every sim using them. They are a bad thing: Stick with default overrides.

Quick question: if you download default eyes, the geneticized ones won't work in pre-created Sims?

Not quite sure what you mean, so I'll answer as best I can. Defaults work on every Sim, existing and yet to come, as they simply take the place (well, override) the Maxis eyes. Townified eyes have the ability to end up on any townie spawned after you put the eyes in your game. Geneticized eyes are what Pescado says above ^^  and creators will give them dominant or recessive traits, so that they act like human eyes (greens recessive, browns dominant, etc...). I'm certainly nowhere near as cranky as Pescado, but I wouldn't recommend geneticized eyes to someone who is constantly changing out their content, or just downloading them to see what they look like in-game.

Unbinned hair can be easily fixed with Wardrobe Wrangler.   But non default genetics I usually stay far away from.  I just have replacement eyes and skins. 

I have to agree with some of the whining on SimSecrets though, there really isn't any truly well done dark skin.  I understand that it could be a graphics issue, but to me, the darkest skins aren't really all that dark.

Engram has done a set of defaults with the Pixie Skintones here- http://www.insimenator.org/index.php/topic,88557.0.html but it does not contain Pixie Ebony as the S4 default. I have not used Engrams defaults but Sausages defaults look great in game- she/he has also done the Enayla's Pixie Supernaturals as Plantsim, Vampire, Alien and Evil Witch Defaults, and Engram has used the Pixie Bruise as a genie default

The kitchens looks so good in game- I like that her stuff is simple and designed for smaller kitchens, and less expensive kitchens- so many other creators design kitchens like they are designing for Malcolm Landgraab IV which is great if you are playing him in game, but not if you are playing Gen 1 Founder in an 8x5 starter home.

amythestfenix made these gorgeous IKEA LACK recolors (after my not so subtle hint).  It works for the basic kitchen and the new shakerlicious.  She will have them up on her site shortly.

Those kitchens that BB makes look wonderful in any size house, be it the grandest of the grand or the smallest of the small. I'll let you in on a small secret: I squeed myself when I saw them and yes, they're in my download folder now! :D

Paden, you squeed yesterday! You know it, I know it, Pooki knows it.. should I go on?

P.S. I was squeeing before you...and after checking that set out this morning in-game, I'm still squeeing!

Many have already joined actually I am thinking of uniting the cults of Adele, Buggybooz, Maylin, Blake-Boy, HugeLunatic, Nouk, and Bruno so we can has more members, and better parties. Passes Rum.

Sorry, no alcohol for me. Liver condition. I'll join you in the united cult though, as long as we can have smoothies too.  :D

The Ikea recolours do look like a must have!

But Scurvy Cat, there are quite a lot of brightly coloured recolours around for the Basic Kitchen. Not as neon-y though.

Edit: Have any of you seen this Dining set at Simsdivine my msfs yet? http://www.simsdivine.com/home2/index.php?topic=5369.0 It seems like it's his first set, and it's quite amazing. I can't wait to see what he makes next.

I love the necter bar. Tons of my houses on Sims 1 had it.

Oh that makes the leftover so much better. And it seems EA knew they really messed up with season because that is sorta how leftovers work on Sims 3. You put away the group meal, and when you have your sims get leftovers, they only pull out a one serving plate rather than the entire platter.

The kitchens looks so good in game- I like that her stuff is simple and designed for smaller kitchens, and less expensive kitchens- so many other creators design kitchens like they are designing for Malcolm Landgraab IV which is great if you are playing him in game, but not if you are playing Gen 1 Founder in an 8x5 starter home.

Seconded. May I also suggest some additions to the pantheon?

Leeloo from "The Fifth Element" by trash_ Probably the best creator of look-alike sims that I've ever seen. S/he also makes the skins available for all ages and genders, which is extremely useful if you want realistic sims once in a while.

This is all full of awesome.

I haven't seen her around lately, but Tarox's Roxelane is also member here, Solvig. You have very good taste. Tarox is a fantastic free site.

I don't know whether or not Insim is still OK, considering their aggressive donation policy, but I didn't see anything that said *WARNING* Insim = BURNINATION! so here goes:

Aggressive donation policy? Do you mean the donate link on the front page, or has InSim changed to pay-for-content/access and I've been too out of the loop to notice? *waits for Paden to come by and clear things up*

At any rate, asking for/accepting donations to cover server costs is fine, as long as CC isn't being held hostage until you pay for it. (Having exclusive CC as donater 'gifts' or 'thank-you's' is just a sneaky way of selling something no one but EA has the right to sell.)

Those statues are lovely! I think I may have to throw them into an art gallery or something, since none of my Sims are wealthy enough to have something like that in their actual houses. And that Leeloo also looks amazing. I haven't seen the Sim in-game, but from the preview pics it looks like the creator actually paid attention to Mila's bone structure and facial proportions rather than just slapping a photoskin on any old face template.

InSIM never has and never will charge for content and I don't know where in the hell you get this thing about "aggressive donation policy", but you're totally full of shit. Here's the little text, lifted right from the front page, in case you bloody well missed it: "If you can spare a little to help towards server costs it would be most appreciated. Funds will NEVER be used for personal gain and will sit in cyber-space until needed for the server bills or upgrades." THAT nice little paragraph is followed by a single, get this, SINGLE, button marked, "Donate".

Scroll down a little more and you'll find a list of affiliates and other great sites, ALL of them FREE sites, and then a nice handy donation meter by which you can keep track of just how much has been given in donations, IF you feel like chucking some spare change or the cost of that Big Mac you're currently stuffing your face with. We have members that do just that and we're as grateful for them as the ones that sling more our way when they can. If we can't meet the cost, Ali picks up the slack out of her own damn pocket.

We didn't get away from some dumb motherfucker that wanted to use that community as a cash cow to line his pocket with just to have little twits like you start to fling around the garbage when you obviously know not a damn thing of which you speak. I hope that straightens out your confusion about the donation policy over there and if it doesn't, ask. There's a lot more going on content-wise than you posted, too.

Oh, as an added note, we do recognize those that do donate to help out with the server costs. I know a custom title isn't really much, but those that do get called "Site Santas" and heart-felt thanks. There are three admins and El Presidente, who would burn the place if we ever thought of going pay. Pay site and Pescado working hand in hand? Are you fucking crazy?! Again, I am going to state it for the record and you'd better remember it well: InSIM never has, and never will be, a pay site. We will never charge the user for the content that they can download from our site. How can I say this so strongly? Easy, I'm one of the three admins.

Sorry, Paden, I obviously didn't do enough research before posting. I saw the thread about that dude Walt buying the site and people on other threads complaining about BBB taking over the site, but had not actually gone over to Insim and checked any announcements. Totally my bad. I went through this entire thread to make sure that I wasn't double posting and was therefore lazy. Not an excuse, I know.

Not that it really matters, but I'm a vegetarian, so no Big Macs for me.  :P

ETA: I know that there's a lot more at Insim (Bloom, Squinge's archive, and Warlokk are creators that I use a lot), but Sgooby's statues and trash_'s sims are some of my favorites and I thought the people here would like them a lot.

We've been free of BBB for ages, as well as Walt, Kathy and Eric. We're a bit more friendly and a lot less bitchy and whiny for money to keep the place going, that's for damn sure. Also, we've lost the sugar-coating that caused diabetics so many problems when they would come over to the site. :D

Ever since I downloaded her Broken (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=302846) Kitchen (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=317113) and Broken Bathroom (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=326755) sets all of my starter Simmies have them in their shacks. Love, love, love them. And the stack of books is, indeed, freaking amazing.

There are many items that are very innovative, such as the painting that is actually a TV.

The most awesome set of shelves with extra slots and tons of recolors.

There's also this one (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=303145) by Numenor, if you want a different frame or something.

I lurrve Fairy Forest. They also have a OMSP controller that looks like a simlish bulletin board in-game, which I can't find on the site. It's on MTS (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=324383), though. It's compatible with Lord Darcy, SilentLucidity, ariffrazalin, JohnBrehaut1, and Fairy Forest OMSPs so that you can turn them all in/visible at the same time.

I have all Feenwald's paintings in game. They're perfect for my museums, rich sims' houses, various Malfoys, etc.

Post by: dusdeedawn on 2009 June 24, 05:16:01
I dunno, my high school had less than 250 kids in it, and growing up I knew 7 girls who had babies before 18. And it wasn't some sort of psycho pact thingy, either. Every one of my childhood friends had sex before 18, and most before 16. I see it as a little more than realism, it's just the way things work - and the game not having it bugs me. Anyway, I figure at least my (rather rare) teenage Sim mums actually take care of their children, instead of going out and partying and repeating the same behavior that got them in their respective situations in the first place. I can understand how you're not too fond of it, though, Paden. To me it's kind of like the babby roaster. It may not be for everyone, but for others, it's a hell of a lot of fun!

I personally think it is nothing short of hilarious that EA intended Sims 1, 2 and 3 to all be PG, yet at the end of the day, it still got slapped with a M+ rating.  Those guys are in dreamy dream land.

Acceptable sentence enhancers are as follows:

And another thing for Sims 3. aikea-guinea over at GOS made some kneesocks for males since the choice of socks for males is very lacking.

On the Sims 2 I never got any of the tattoo skins because my sims were stuck with them. If I didn't like it on a sim anymore I couldn't take them off. Well someone made some tattoos for Sims 3 that show up under accessories, they work like the gloves. I love this idea.

Yeh, my loading is already stretching out a bit (more or less 30 seconds loading until sims' house). I should time it to check. Luckily I was reasonable with patterns. Only have 89, yet I still think I'll weed some. I must have 5 Mariko patterns, will weed out 3.

I don't think it is going to be anything compared to my TS2 game- of course with TS2- I have all EP's and all SP's except KBID's and FFS- and 13,000+ CC files- so my load time is often around 10 or 15 minutes as of yesterdays load time- I don't thinks TS3 will be that bad with CC as long as it is just the base game- but I am such a download whore I can see it becoming a real problem once we have more than houses, altered base game clothing  and accessory meshes, hair, skin and eye replacements and patterns- Especially since the poly counts at first with the new object meshing tools they are working on are likely to be hideous even for some of the more experienced object meshers like Kate at Parsims who have been doing object meshes since the TS1 days and are used to the changes in the tools and so on.

Now I can't get it to work. It would turn on once after I got rid of the 16 commands mod, but I just went back to go test out the Sound file in Riverview saves, and the game wont turn on with the fire pit hack. grrr...  >:(

dstar, you only have 13,000+ CC files. I've got almost 40,000 files.

That was after getting rid of around 15,000 TSR files in my downloads folder and only keeping the work of FA's, SA's and Retired Artists like Aikea Guinea and Gelydh who had x-posted files elsewhere, and some Maxis Matching stuff that had not yet been done by Huge Lunatic, Raggedy Anne, Ailias or Snarky, as well as a bunch of SIP beds that although pretty were not very functional, ( Delphine and Jasmines work is so pretty but their beds just don't work for me) and a bunch of stuff I downloaded in 2005 that I looked at and went "I thought that was good?"

dstar, my sims 2 game is so bloated 11300 files, 1.6Go. Loading time around 6 to 7'. Hate it. rum_nate, 40k? Man, that's HUGE!

That's why I want to avoid being stupid again with sims 3. Haven't downloaded any houses yet. I'm only expecting a dazzling farm lot I saw in a pic and the creator said (s)he'll upload it. But frankly checking the lots page at MTS is a shore as it's already bloated with stuff. In fact this farm is an excuse for me to not grab any lot, since I'm waiting for Godot :). Didn't grab the Hello Kitty watches as I want them for kids only and the tatoos are nice but seem too colored to be realistic, normally tatoos fade out. Plus these are sooo big, I just want classical ones like a small red & black heart with "MOM" written below ^^ or a reasonnably sized dragon in faded black color. No pattern recolors, that's useless. I'm also trying to avoid mods and pattern invasion. Recently added superior bed and gender 50-50 though and the buy flame fruits and whatnot at the grocery. Haven't downloaded any sim either even if I have a huge urge to grab really nice ones. MUST resist. Will NOT bloat sims 3. Gosh that sounds like a group therapy. *shuts up* :-X

Post by: dstar on 2009 June 25, 17:05:26
The only lots I have grabbed for TS3 are one by Qbuilderz, and one by BlackOrchid simply because their lots are usually so well done and as a lot builder myself they inspire me to try new things.

The Hello Kitty Watch was actually for my niece- she is really into Anime and Japanese Street Style and there is so little that goes with that in base game TS3 other than the cartooney anime hairs for both genders that she has been suffering from lack of stuff.

I don't mind the new patterns because it allows to take the usually mismatched mishmash that EA gives us because they are to lazy to ever finish a set (even the Story Stuff Sets that I have I can think of a dozen other pieces per set that are needed to make them complete and the Store Sets oddly enough are usually more complete than the stuff that they release in the EP's and SP's when it comes to TS2 at least) and turn it into a nice rather than a typical starter home with mismatched items everywhere- I like eclectic but there are simply some things that should match. I don't have many patterns - right now so many of them are merely recolors of the stuff in game that I can do myself and are posted on the Exchange where I am loathe to go- though I have nabbed HP's, Lethes, Aikea Guineas,. Saraswati's, and many of  Kate at Parsims patterns. I don't even think I have 50 at this point .

Ok there is something really wrong with my game. I took out every single hack because the game would not turn on at all, even when I took out all the hacks I put in in the last 24 hours. I put back in pescado's mod and the firepit mod, won't turn on. I take out all the patterns, then go to turn the game on with only pescado's mod and configur file and the firepit mod. The game wont load. I take out the firepit mod, the game turns on fine. I am again at a loss as to why it is doing this. I'm going to add back in my other mods one by one to see if any of them have problems too, since even when the fire pit and 16 command mods weren't in I still was crashing.

Did you delete your cache files  ? Also there is a file called XCMPT something or other - it has both an unrecognized file format and .txt user logs- if you have more than one of these in your MyDocs/Electronic Arts/TS3 folder in the same area of your folder as the cache files you are supposed to delete when the game goes poof they can also cause problems. I have had my game crash because of that as well. - If you do delete those and it should be fine- that is what fixed it for mine.

Post by: Dr House on 2009 June 25, 17:50:04
dstar, these are due to the enablescripterror.package, right? I keep deleting the bloody XCMPT or something since these are useless and just crash logs. Didn't know they could bork your game.

btw rum_nate, try taking out or putting the enablescripterror.package. It may help.

Post by: dstar on 2009 June 25, 17:57:40
This was before Pescado uploaded the enablescripterror pkg at MATY. I kept wondering why townies that did not belong in Sunset Valley kept showing up (Bob Newbie WTF), and why I would go somewhere and be unable to interact with townies and pre-mades who were stuck in place. Deleted the cache files didn't work , I didn't have any mods that conflicted with Awesomemod, so I noticed I had like six sets of the XCMPT files I deleted them and the game was fine.

Don't get me wrong- when someone figures out how the  relationships memories  and neighborhoods work and creates a merged Riverview -Sunset Valley hood- Bob Newbie showing up in the park to play chess with Mortimer Goth is no problem- After all in my TS1 game they were close friends- but no merged hood is supposed to = no people from other towns showing up on community lots

Ok, I deleted all those cache files and the crash logs and all those files and put the enablescripterror.package in and the game still didn't work. I took out the fire pit hack and it still didn't work. I too out the knee high socks and the game works. And a few hours ago when I took everything out and was putting it back in one at a time, just having Pescado's mod, the configure file for it, and either the fire pit hack or the knee high socks, the game would crash. The second I took either of those last files out (I never put them in together when I was trying to figure out what files were causing me problems) the game worked fine. So for some odd reason, the fire pit hack and the knee high socks are not compatible with Pescado's mod for me. That really has got me lost.

I only have about 25 patterns, and most of those I've made.

Thanks for the aquarium mod - I know I'd seen it on some forum, was looking all over MTS and MATY and couldn't find it.  Didn't think you check CustomSims3 [still getting used to it actually having stuff now :)].  I'm doing a chocolate chunk with whipped topping Legacy [ie, I'm going with epic lifespan and cheating as needed.  I just can't do the vanilla challenges, I've tried and tried and tried.  Closest was apocalypse with plant sims where I actually got a fair bit into it with 10 generations.

I am actually doing a Pleasantview/Old Town Pre-Mades Legacy and a Rock and Roll Legacy at the moment. The first one I am playing on epic/aging off with Hand of God Enabled to prevent pre-made move outs- I am playing each pre-made family that are ancestors of the Pleasantview Sims in TS2, and the Old Town Sims in TS1, Newbies, Landgraabs, Simovitch's, Brokes, Crumplebottoms, Goths, Bachelors etc. To ensure that they do what they are supposed to do to make the lives of the premades in TS1 and TS2 possible- e.g. Bob and Betty marry, have kid Brandi who marries Skip Broke, Bella and Morty Marry have Cass and Alex etc, Landgraab III marries whoever the hell he is supposed to marry in order for IV to exist. Story continuity damnit!!!

The second one - is with a CAS Sim that I made- Rose Sinclair who married Jon Lessen in Riverview- all their descendents will have the virtuoso trait and I will try to pick LTW choice with one of the musical options.

Nope, fire pit mod is already in my game since I tested it for you and will keep it since it's handy and I just added A. Guinea's socks to the game: (http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/3485/screenshot27c.th.jpg) (http://img30.imageshack.us/i/screenshot27c.jpg/) (http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/7821/screenshottnk.th.jpg) (http://img40.imageshack.us/i/screenshottnk.jpg/)
Awesomemod is still in. Game loaded fine and I didn't even delete any cache files.

Okay, what else did you add? Do you happen to have two default skins? Did you add Peggy's hair? I'm going to add the GoS short boots for females, maybe you grabbed this one too (and I want it anyway lol) EDIT: Still working with the boots. Nice stuff btw, look at the second pic.

I took everything out, all hacks and custom patterns. Then I just put in Pescado's mod and configure file, just to make sure the game wasn't fucked up and I had to reinstall, the game loaded fine. So I put in the fire pit hack, so the only CC that is in the game is Pescado's mod and configure file, the fire pit hack, and the store stuff and some custom textures in my downloads folder. The game crashes on start up. I take out the fire pit hack and put in the kneen high socks, and the game still crashes. I put back in all my mods and custom patterns, take out the knee high socks, so I no longer have them, the fire pit hack, or the 16 commands hack in, and the game loads fine. Nothing I did would get the

Fake Edit: I finally got it working. I had to put the fire pit hack and knee high socks in one at a time and turn on the game after I put each of them in. Then I added Pescado's mod and configure file, turned the game on fine, then added all my other hacks and patterns, game crashed. I took out the air guitar hack, and the game turns on fine.

Yeah, I remember saying similar things about Sims2.  I hope you'll have more willpower with Sims3 than I did with Sims2. ;)   I'm at 1.4Gb (old machine, tiny hard drive).  I swear I only download stuff I actually use, and I compress everything, and I don't have 50 different versions of the same thing.  None of it helps.

Paden, I never had problems with Sims 3. Awesomemod kept crashing at a certain builds for some days but it quickly resolved with Pes' updates. I'm a happy sailor :D And reading some at MATY or here that have a lot of problems I don't understand why I don't have any: my computer is average and in a very bad state, it badly needs dust cleaning plus one nuked fan is slowly dying (of course it's the worst placed one, you have to completely dismember the computer to reach it. Arg.). And 2 of the 3 HDs I have are very unstable and sometimes act like crazy bitches (huh their produce was quickly stopped because of these borks!), my soundcard is so old it doesn't have any updated drivers and now Windows hates my speakers...  Well, lucky me I guess: my computer is a total wreck but Sims 3 runs flawlessly. *knocks on wood* ROFL Happy Happy Joy Joy
Sometimes I wonder how come my comp doesn't self-destruct and explodes.

LOL I discovered one of my sim couple hate each other! Left them alone and they immediately started fighting and insulting eachother :D Okay their relationship wasn't awesome but they've been too busy to talk and cuddle for a lot of days, not my fault.

CatOfWar, I'm trying hard and WILL try to RESIST ;D Don't want to redo the same shit than with sims 2. Oh well at least an item now = one tiny file. No need for a gazillions of recolors, which must have made approximately a fourth of my Downloads folder in sims 2. You and me are both strong kitties and we will resist! *rambo mode*

 Paden I actually haven't had that many problems with TS3- it has crashed fewer times than my  TS1 and my TS2 did unpatched, and unmodded with no CC when I first got them- I am sure that this problem existed for both TS1 and TS2 when hacks/mods first started coming out because everyone was trying something new and modders didn't always consult each other on what they were doing- These things happen. I enjoy both of them- and have actually been playing TS2 most of today once I found my M&G disc (which is good since I have a re-color set to test out) which was luckily not buried to deep in my boxes of stuff to move. Hell I even still play TS1 and just now found my Sims Mega Pack with Sim Golf, Sim Theme Park, Sim City 3000, Sim Coaster, and Sim Safari (and my machine is an XP which means they work to) and am planning to drag them out later tonight.


Dr House I know what you mean about the downloads. My main issue with TS2- was I never purged my d/l folder. I realized this yesterday when I purged some God Awful Sims Connection, hairs that I got when I first started downloading stuff and realized that their hair is awful even in comparison to Peggy. Now objects and clothing will be purged from the d/l folder on a regular basis- as soon as subfoldering becomes a possibility it WILL be organized according to type and creator. Some creators are also uploading 7 different recolors of an identical pattern so when I download patterns I only download one color of the pattern since they can be recolored in CAST anyways. I will limit it this time.

I recently purged my dl folder for the first time ever, for many of the same reasons. It had 10 g's.
In the last 2 weeks it's gone from 3 gigs to 9. This time I am organizing it as I download. Each site gets a folder and each creator gets a folder within that. Some creators like Adele, Buggybooz, Bruno, etc, get their own folders not within a site folder. Even if I get a mesh from a recolor set, I put in the folder of the original creator.

It's very time consuming process, but it's already come in handy. I had a file that was crashing my game during the loading. I was able to isolate the problem file so much quicker because everything was organized. Then I was able to see where it came from, so I could let the creator know about the problem.

A few weeks before Sims 3 came out I used Delphy's Download organizer and Sim PE to purge and organize my downloads folder. I did it by the catalog sort, so One folder for buy mode, build mode, and body shop, and then the different sections in them. Then also folders for foods, default replacements, hacks, nhood objects, and a few creators have their own folders in the main downloads folder. But I have over 6gig in my download folder and probably 1 to 2 gig in the files in the the files in C/Program Files/ EA Games. But I ended up deleting about 2 to 4 thousand things when I purged, and I am still deleting stuff in game. But I haven't been playing lately, I would rather the 2 minute load time for Sims 3 than the 30 to 45 minuet load time for Sims 2.  :P

I try and play TS2 just as often because there are still things I am loving about it- like the ability to make a custom hood- including all of the houses, community lots, and so on, and the fact that the other families that I am playing don't age up and die along with my character if I don't play with Pescado's TS2 Style Aging from the Aweseommod or Aging Off. I still even play TS1- cause I like TS1 Vacation better than BV. I have a 500 GB HD so it isn't exactly an issue just leaving my game on the computer. As for downloads I do a purge from the TS2 bin about once a week----

Oh shoot- I have to have this - didn't see anyone else post a link or picture so here we go- new kitchen by Buggybooz- http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=342880

But yeah, The Sims 1 EPs worked together better than on The Sims 2, and vacation was so much better, there seemed to be more to do. But I could go on and on about how good Sims 1 was, because every EP had so many good things in them.

I like the truly new things about TS3- but it seems like with the elements of TS1 and TS2 in the game they only included a few of the really good elements from the previous games like gardening  and included a lot of the worst- e.g. the uneditable hoods from TS1 . It doesn't make sense since we were all telling them for nearly a year what elements of TS1 and TS2 we would love to see in TS3- of course they were probably to busy listening to the noobs on the BBS and the 12's on the TSR forums to pay attention to what any of us who had actually been playing the franchise since TS1`actually wanted.

It's not only this site that I'm reading about the problems, all. There are plenty of others out there where people are saying they keep having crashing issues with or without mods. Some people have the good fortune not to crash at all. It just seems to hit or miss to me, you know?

I think that is true of any game in the beginning- as I said I like the game but there are issues and I am not blind to them- and I can also understand your frustration with EA- I am just lucky that I have not had many (although I have had some ) of the problems associated with EA games products. And I really wish that EA's execs and the Sims Design Team would start listening to what the majority of the Sims community wants instead of listening to what a whopping 15 people (most of whom are  probablyTSR/Paysite execs or Maxoids honestly) want from a game- they could have actually used the 6 months delay to accomplish something to fix the problems with the game that have been existent since apparently the build the creators played with at the Camp last fall- but they didn't and now the rest of us are having to deal with it- with me not so much the Awesommod thats the problem - but the content by creators like Peggy who and TSR creators who are after the quick buck (all of Peggy's and TSR shit is free at the moment but you know the minute that we have the ability to put brand new sparkly non=EA cloned objects into the game - they will be pay) and don't really give a shit if their crap conflicts with damage control mods like Wintermutes or Pescados

Personally there are things that I like about each game - just like I enjoy different things about the other franchise type games I play such as Heroes of Might and Magic.

I agree with this too,
When you compair the quality of the work done by dedicated modders and then see what the paracites at the paysites produce it's not dificult to tell whose in it for the chalange and love of what their doing and those in it just for the money.

ETA:  I'm really looking forward to when there are some modding tools released for Sims3, hopefully well see a flood of superb content on MTS3 and similar sites.
I wouldn't piss on T$R if it was on fire, mind you I'd happily piss on Thoma$$ just for the hell of it.

I know there are a ton of them out there, but I really like the artwork. And they go very well with AweSims' Simple desk Artist recolors (http://awesims.sixty-ten.net/?p=901). ;D

It must have taken those two a while to make that, and just imagine how much of their hair they pulled out. It couldn't have been easy. What talent each of them have. And together? Absolute bliss. Can't wait for Decorgal's to come out. Then life shall be complete and my Sims can die happy. YES. YES YES YES YES YES. YES. YESSSSSSSSS.

If I've understood it correctly, there are also decorative verisons of the items,  which is great for those of us that doesnt make movies or take a lot of pictures (I have discovered I am completely useless at taking pictures - both in real life and in sims! How sad isnt that!). I cant wait to try the items in game!  ;D

This (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=351301) is the most touching tribute I have seen so far for Michael Jackson, and it definately deserves to be posted here.
It's probably the best celeb-sim I've seen anywhere. You can tell that she made this sim with love. It came from the heart.

Her poem should be posted everywhere. It really moved me.

"This is my thanks to you for:
all the joy you gave me trough your imense talent;
all the good memories I have when I listen to your songs;
the way you make me fell when I watch you dance...
I have no words to tell you...how I'm gonna miss you...

The Gods envy, when a human becames one of them
and have no mercy of those who dare to conquer their's Glory,
like you did.

At the end,
you transformed your beautiful face in an empty mask,
to hide your fears and feelings,
from a world that was eating you alive.

You destroyed your real face
but gave away your soul in return,
to all of us who loved you art.
And for THIS only,
you should be remembered by,
no more, no less... forever.
You Are Not Alone Michael...this pain will pass and you'll rest in peace;
You don't have to hide anymore..."

Sorry to double post, but I wanted to make sure people see this.

It is an overhaul of the ingredients for Sims 3.

It's features are:


- Better, more complex recipes. Almost every recipe now requires three ingredients (Ambrosia recipe was not changed!).
- 10 new non plantable ingredients: spaghetti, rice, macaroni, bread, buns, long buns, nori, peanut butter and yogurt. All in a separate UI tab!
- 4 new plantable ingredients: cantaloupe, eggplant, orange and dragon fruit.
- Every dish is made available to vegetarians with appropriate names; after all there are fish and meat substitutes on the real life market.
- Faster cutting on cutting board.
- Every meal available at any time.

It even adds a custom UI tab when you go to the grocery store. And it also says you can use the ingredients as clutter now too. There is a problem with the seams, you can really notice it on the orange, but its because of EA's meshes, not bad meshing on BlackCat007's hand.

I can't wait to get in game a check this out.

Paperbeth, thanks for posting. I totally agree with everything you wrote. I am his fan since I was 13, since Thriller video was made. I was always standing on his side, didn't believe in any lie. I was seeing a Human not a "freak", "alien", and whatever  press wrote. I hope He is looking at us from above and smiles.
Michael, you gone too soon but you are not alone.
Thank you for everything.

Also see the toddlers' Tshirts, they're adorable! http://www.lianasims3.net/index.php

The site is also the same as Liana Sims 2 and links to the site you posted. Liana sims 2 has many free items but also has a donation area where you pay for items/sets most of which end up in the booty. This is obviousley her Sims 3 site which does appear to be free at the moment but as her sims 2 site has pay for items i wonder how long til the Sims 3 site has!

This is just one of the huge number of drool-inducing clothes I discovered. I didn't even know Adele had her own site, nor did I know she did clothing as well as fabulous furniture. I went insane.

Damn that horribly beautiful view and its stupid despicable gorgeous breathtakeyness.

Damn that horribly beautiful view and its stupid despicable gorgeous breathtakeyness.

Nothing says you can't play both. I'm enjoying playing around with Sims 3 but it gets boring, fast. Maybe when the community figures out how to create meshes and the ball really gets rolling, it will be more fun, but EAxis has made it so absurdly difficult to mod/mesh for the game that I just can't see it reaching the heights Sims 2 has. Plus, it's difficult to create an immersive non-21st century world when every Sim can pull a cell phone out of their ass. AAS may be creating content for Sims 3 but without new meshing capabilities, their gorgeous Regency, Victorian and Edwardian-era clothing will still be the mainstay of my Sims world, and that means Sims 2.

There are pluses to Sims 3 but I just keep wishing I could play Sims 2 with the new features. Would it have been so damn difficult for them to just incorporate the Sims 3 features into the existing Sims 2 structure? At least the ability to mesh and mod, and keep using all the thousands of downloads I already have. Even if they couldn't be recolored like the new stuff, at least to be able to use them in my game would have made all the difference in the world.

But yeah, you're right about the breathtaking views.

Don't be so negative, CC will come to the rescue. Medieval players had all sort of CC to hide the technology in Sims 2. Painting tv, scroll phone, runic fire alarm. Crystall ball tv, hidden computers of all sorts etc... None of these were EA, it all was CC.
If someone made a mod that would graphically replace the sims 3 mobile phone with a banana, that would make it to play other theme. Well at least for prehistoric cavesims and for tropical/beachy sims :D A rolled scroll would do it for medieval sims.
What could it be replaced with for victorians sims? A huge ham? A pitchfork maybe? ;D

Exactly - I do like -playing- sims 3 more, but until there is a way to mesh new items, I won't feel completed - unfortunately, I don't like sims 2 likes this computer - it graphic glitches like mad, and until I find a good spot for the laptop....

Anyway, I do wish it was possible to import the landscaping stuff to Sims 2, and the landscaping stuff from 2 to 3.  I love the look of the new stuff, but the stuff from 2 is better for putting right up against a house.
