Even if MTS2 does have a ".package only" upload policy that might turn people off from using it if they are used to Workshop, I bet the real reason is TSR offers rewards uploaders with something, even if they are just kudos (and as a FA she gets more that just kudos).

I've never understood the argument that sims3packs are easier than packages. I mean, you just drop them in. That's pretty easy. If anything, using the damn launcher is a pain simply because EA insists on breaking it with every other patch.

Ummm guys before this goes on too long, I think the foreigners being discussed are, yanno, us. Just sayin'.

Except that still doesn't make sense to me in the context of her statement. Why would TSR be more accessible to English speakers than MTS?

Problem is, sims 1 didn't start with pay anything.  People made stuff and they shared it - then bandwidth issues started up, and a lot of popular sites went pay, not just sims but other things, like kiss dolls and the like.

As someone who's been playing ever since TS1 days (I may be dating myself slightly here), I can still remember the initial shock I felt at the emergence of paysites. I was astounded-- after all, I had already paid for the game and the EPs. Up until that point, the majority of the community was free, and it was pretty much a given that only the massively huge sites had "donation" items. Unfortunately, by TS2 and TS3 days, it's become much more widespread, which is ironic since many of the sites are fairly small and, as SoggyFox points out, bandwidth has actually gotten cheaper.

Woke up this morning to find this absolutely gorgeous download at MTS. Cheesy

Yeah, facebook apps can actually be pretty dangerous, both for your own personal info and your friends'. You'd be surprised what the fine print states on some of those applications-- for example, many of them reserve the right to keep your info, even AFTER you've removed their application from your profile.

I was under the impression that Lorandia was the same person as Liana, who also creates under the name Anna Marie or something like that? So she has quite a few other paysites, in addition to creating for TSR, assuming they're all the same person. I guess it's a move in the right direction, but it doesn't really mean that much to me if she's got several other paysites waiting in the wings.  Undecided

P.S. Apparently the Bruno texture girl is but a child so I'm chalking it up to simple immaturity. I'm assuming they'll do the right thing.

Interesting. Hopefully it was just ignorance, rather than intentionally stealing. Most of the comments seem to be fairly direct rather than bashing, so hopefully she'll get the message and take it down. Some of the comments made me roll my eyes, though:

They are simillar [sic], but, I see many differences in both.

Yes. They are different colors. How on earth did anyone make the connection? /sarcasm

I also told him I thought it was quite wrong of the owners to have shared customers' personal data with people other than admins (ie creators etc), and that this was a huge part of the loss of TSR's reputation.   He responded that he felt it was entirely justified to have shared this information with creators whose work was being stolen.  

Thomas referring to their work as being "stolen" seems like a very odd way to put it. If anything, situations like the Shakeshaft Debacle would fall under the category of stealing, and I didn't see anybody offering up her personal info then (nor should they have). Moreover, I fail to see how knowing the credit card number of someone you think is filesharing your creations is helpful at all. It strikes me as being more of a revenge-type situation, which is pretty problematic when you share the wrong person's info. You can't exactly take that back.

After the petition was hacked, I believe BlueSoup stated that the petition would not be sent. Unfortunately, she's been absent during this whole debacle. Regardless of what TSR spouts off, I'm skeptical that EA provided them with the list. Not really out of any undying faith in EA's morality, but I don't see what they would get out of doing so. Sharing info is a pretty risky thing to do, and I can't imagine a corporation doing it unless they were absolutely certain they wouldn't get caught (and TSR turned the blame on them pretty quickly), and were getting some kind of benefit out of it.
10  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: TSR: In Ur Accounts, Deletin Ur Stuffs! on: 2009 November 30, 19:24:02
TSR definitely seems to be scrambling. I'm not sure how saying, "Don't worry, we didn't release our own members' information, we hacked into another website and released their information" is supposed to be reassuring. They are also, apparently, planning on suing the internet for libel.
11  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: TSR: In Ur Accounts, Deletin Ur Stuffs! on: 2009 November 29, 22:42:51
Well, I'm pretty much convinced that TSR's source of info on this was the hacked petition. Coconut mentions on her blog that some of the names have comments beside them:

Quote
Next to each name is a Email address and next to some of them are comments which seem to be addressed to EA and carry anti-TSR vibes

Additionally, I remember signing first-name only on the petition, because I debated over it. Coincidentally, TSR doesn't have my last name on the list. I also remember intentionally signing with an old e-mail address that I never checked, because I figured if it got spammed I didn't care.
12  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: TSR: In Ur Accounts, Deletin Ur Stuffs! on: 2009 November 29, 21:56:14
I find it very interesting that you said that. I signed the same petition, and have no memory of ever joining TSR or providing them with the e-mail address that they apparently acquired. Does anyone else who is on the list remember signing the petition?

ETA: Just for fun, I went to the TSR website and tried logging in with the (now defunct) e-mail they manged to get their hands on. Sure enough, it came up with a "no matching e-mail in database" message. I'm becoming more and more certain that however they got it, I didn't give it to them.
13  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: TSR: In Ur Accounts, Deletin Ur Stuffs! on: 2009 November 29, 21:45:39
@SoggyFox: The way I figured it out was that I posted using the e-mail that I suspected they had. It doesn't get displayed to anybody else, and Coconut confirmed that it matched. I'd also recommend that anybody else do what I did if their e-mail address was compromised, which is delete the e-mail account. It'll probably just get overrun with spam at this point anyway.
14  The Pirate Ship / ARR! / Re: TSR: In Ur Accounts, Deletin Ur Stuffs! on: 2009 November 29, 19:40:24
Well, I did apparently make the list. What I find strange is that I have no memory of ever joining TSR, as I tend to be pretty paranoid. Needless to say, I haven't downloaded from the site, either. Have now since deleted the e-mail account, of course, but I'm wondering where they got it in the first place.

I just wanted to mention that Lili Sims has added some really gorgeous clothing and accessories.



They're not photoskinned or anything, so they blend beautifully with the rest of the game.
