THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Yup, Holysimoly IS a paysite; no way around. Just like Around the Sims 2. I'm glad Bluesoup days with the "special treatment" towards these 2 sites are over and way behind. I don't care if these site's owners are so nice and yadada, they're still paysites Angry

I saw a lot of Ikea stuff at MTS2 & TSR too, but that'ld make too many pics of comparison. I'll see if i retrieve the bookmarks.

Also I think Peggy and Rose try to go for super realistic (but it turns out kinda plasticky for Rose) while I always go for semi realistic with everything.
Really? Peggy, realistic? With her pink-reds and huge neck/ear/forehead gaps? That's what I was thinking about the Asian hairstyle: it's pretty, but you know there's an ear gap and most likely a forehead gap at teen.

Nouk, I must confess I love Rose hair.....however, I recently discovered your stuff, and whilst the textures are semi realistic, the animation is just wonderful! Much more natural than Rose.

Edit, just read that back and it sounded all wrong.

Just to clarify, I love your hair!

I also love Roses hairstyles (but not particularly the textures or lack of movement, plus weird things happening because of this) I like the styles themselves.

Even someone with talent like Windkeeper gets pwned by free creators:

Her infant diaper over ride:

Bloom at Insim's free over ride:

There are several versions and recolors galore.


Windkeeper's Unicorn


VS

Rebecah's free RIDABLE unicorn at Insim:

Her version of the OMSP (One more slot)




VS Lord Darcy's excellent and all inclusive set

She's probably best known for her build sets, which are well-made, but a quick glance at the featured Door and Window sets at MTS2 gives you multiple excellent FREE building sets like this one from Macarossi:

Or this one by stonetower at MTS2:

Even the best paysite creators can't outdo free creators.

This is definitely the best thread evar.  Anyone who has any doubts about paysites needs to just look at this thread.  I hadn't seen Adele's stuff either, or that awesome dining room - now my download folder is getting bloated because I can't just go get that one thing but I have to see what else that creator has done!   Grin  Or rather, it will probably get evened out because I know that having that new stuff will make me delete more of the crap to make room for more goodness.

I can't play with any hairs but Nouk's anymore (and a very few others).  I realized yesterday when I booted up my game that I always play with the same stuff, over and over.  And what I paid particular attention to is that its all stuff from free sites, because that's what looks best in the game.  I want to spend a day (or probably three lol) deleting the shit stuff that I never use to make room in my game and most likely have it run better, too.  That is going to be a major project because I am not a creator so I don't know a short quick way to do it. 

Anyways, this thread is such a great eye-opener for anyone who might be might be on the fence still.  If you can't see it by looking at this, you're blind, stupid - or you don't want to see.

Edited to make better sense I hope.  (S)

We should have a list with all of the awesome free creators sites in it - free advertising for the sites, people on the fence have easy access to good free sites (I'd never heard of many until coming on here, and I'm still learning) and it just might draw more people away from the paysites!

I for one, would love to see sites recommended by pirates in the know.

I'd show the picture, but the difference isn't as evident...Marvine's aquarium fish for placing in pools, oceans and in aquarium walls [Which I got free, but can't seem to find at the moment Sad The download, itself - I've got the aquarium fish in my downloads file.] - vs Windkeeper's still sculpture fish, which just sit there and don't move at all, available at TSR and in the booty.  I remember that was the first thing I downloaded from the Booty and imediately got rid of it with disapoointment.

Why can you not like Rose hair? It's nice hair!

*whispers* because it's paysite, and it isn't that hot. It's very, um, static. I love the way your hairs are animated. As much as I love the styles of rose, it is very plastic looking.

In my defence, I draw the line at Peggy. I have subscribed there once, but was sorely disappointed once I got items in game, apart from a select few objects that I used to use.

It's time for my download folder to have a cull I fear.

Now see, that fountain is full of win too - and I hadn't seen that site before either!  Thanks Cala!

We do need a list of "Fantastic Free Sites" or something... I said this thread is going to kill my downloads folder.  Especially since I have finally really started playing again with a specific "style" in mind so I have to go search for stuff.  Well I know that I will be doing a lot of weeding this weekend, along with watching this thread!   Wink

Edited to add - Cala, I should have said I don't know the BEST way to weed though my sims stuff, meaning delete from in game or what.  I don't have any "tools" to delete from outside of game and if it isn't named appropriately I don't know what it is from inside the download folders.  I do have most of my stuff in sub-folders, but some stuff is in "Misc" because I don't know what the heck it is from just the name of the package file!

Most of the time those sorts of lists just lead to no one clicking on it - and sims2cri and other places have them.  A lot of these places (particularly the ones I mention) are on my links page already - so it's redundancy for me.  Better to show off the content and have people clicking like crazy download whores to get it. Cheesy

If I find a good sim site, I put it in my links now I have joomla (regardless of whether they link to me or not), as I can update it anytime I want, and I have the advantage of finding new sites all the time because of foreign country sites linking to my site, I backtrack and find some cool little places.

You people are cruel and I love it. XD I wonder if you all would call some of these things beautiful if they were free... XD Though, I admit, Peggy's hairline's suck. O_O And I am NOT a critical person. But... The hairlines irritate my perfectionist viewpoint. So untidy.

Ahh, if only bodyshop and simPE worked on my computer. =_=

Oh, and, YAY to list of free sites.
