Hi ya guys! I know I posted a while back that I was waiting on Seasons to continue my legacy but GAH I JUST DON'T KNOW IF I CAN WAIT THAT LONG! I have a huuuuuge sim itch right now & I may just give in to it *nodnod*

I have kept away from LJ & legacies to try & hold myself back, though getting into ME3 Multiplayer really kept my gaming needs satisfied for a long time. Anyway, I have legacies from you guys lined up in my browser to catch up on over the next few days, & hopefully I will be back to the Von Dyne's very soon, I miss them!



______________________

ALSO, I was thinking about turning the former IF's into sims with that pale white DOLL skin, you know the one with the joints & stuff :O Wut do you guys think? Will it be odd to see the 2 boys pale white instead of blue!? Or has it been so long that everyone is like U HAVE IFs IN YOUR GAME!? WHO!? lolol!!

*wonders off*

The past few days I have been working on getting Lucky Palms all set up with lots from every EP so I can move my legacy family there. BUT my problem is… I am trying to build a house that LOOKS like it BELONGS in that type of landscape & I am failing miserably! I have looked on multiple house plans sites but nothing is really clicking, & I have demonlished over six houses that I gave up on.

Does anyone know of any pictures (doesn’t have to be a house plan) of houses that look as though they fit into that Arizona-ish type landscape. A house that is big enough for a legacy family yet NOT crazy-massive-big-needs-60x60-or-larger-lot -harder to find than it would seem!

The only things I find that are stunning are things that would be super crazy annoying to build, if not impossible, with the build mode in TS3.

I desperately need inspiration/help! *passes out cookies*

So I was gone for a few weeks, then I got all re-addicted to Skyrim which means I have been seriously MIA!! But I just wanted to post a little something here to let you guys know I am not giving up on my Von Dyne legacy, I am just going through one of my non-sim phases :)

& OHMYGOD, Supernatural in September & Seasons in November!!!!!!!!


I am so excited!! & frankly I have no plans -as of now- to get back to my legacy until Seasons comes out. THAT MAY CHANGE! But for now I think I will pause it b/c I know me & I know I am going to want to move to that new hood & it will be a huge ordeal with extended family... so I am going to just wait.

BUT I may do something temporarily in the mean time since I have been in a sims mood today. I may go hunt up a mini challenge or something & give that a go :)

So over the past three weeks I have received nearly a dozen requests to upload my downloads folder from various people. At first I just brushed it off, then the requests just kept coming so I replied that no I would not upload mine... yet the requests just keep coming by new & the same people asking & sometimes even 'politely' demanding I give them my downloads!

So here is my final answer on the subject.

1) Do you know how large my downloads are? There is no free site that would hold them all unless I spent hours splitting my downloads into smaller folders to rar up & spent days & days waiting for things to upload.

2) Everyone has their own personal tastes in things. Sure you might love a lot of what I have but loads may sit unused & unwanted & take up valuable space on your computer & cause your game to lag worse than it ever did before. I do not pay attention to polycounts, I have a lot of things that are WAY too high & would kill a lesser computer.

3) Frankly I find it rather rude when people keep asking me for this. Once makes me sigh but twice makes me snarl. I consider myself a nice person, & since I would never in a million years seriously ask someone to do something that is extremely time consuming for that person, I do not understand why people keep asking me for mine. Do you know how crushing it was to loose TWO computers in the span of three days? I lost everything dear to me on those computers - & I am not even talking about sims right now. So many personal things were lost since I used both computers as backups for each other instead of a 3rd party source like a fool. Then on a sim level I lost every sim you see here on my flickr for one thing, & that was beyond sad for me since I loved each & every one.

& after dealing with all that I just sat down & within days I had my downloads redone. So why can't anyone else do that? IT IS NOT HARD! In fact, it is FUN to redo downloads! It's like shopping with unlimited money! So, my compromise on this subject is that I will list the people/sites I go to to get my downloads.

Therefore people can stop asking me to do their work for them & do it themselves. *nods*

    My Sims 3 Blog - This is the one link you should bookmark, I visit it everyday to get download updates.






That is literally every site/creator I have any download from . When I redid my downloads I bookmarked every person I downloaded from so this is my complete object shopping list.

Final Say on the Matter - Do NOT ask me to upload my downloads folder anymore, PLEASE! I am so tired of having to tell people NO. I don't like to say no, but I am sticking to this answer & it is very rude to keep asking me, or anyone else for that matter, & forcing me & other people to get annoyed. Even if you do not have an account at TSR -everyone knows there are ways around that. So no more whining & making me feel like I am a bad person just b/c some people feel they need to put energy into making me feel like I am the bad/lazy person who somehow OWES it to them when that is not true.



Happy Simming & even if you never asked for my downloads, maybe this small list will open up new downloads for some of you!
-Cole

Hi guys!

I have been away for over a month but now I am back & want to answer the
questions I seem to see non-stop where my sim downloads are concerned.


1) When will I finish Pleasantview sims?

- As most of you know who follow me here, I lost EVERYTHING on my desktop & laptop when both computers died within days of each other. That is all my personal & gaming things so it has taken me a while to really come to grips with all I lost as well as trying to replenish everything. So I lost interest in finishing things, especially since the day before my desktop died I finished all the Pleasantview sims! It is very hard for me to REDO the little buggers after I already did them -ha. But I do hope to get back into the swing of things sometime in the near future.

2) Will I upload CC versions of the sims?

- I have been overwhelmed with requests via PM as well as some comments about this & I have decided that I will try to do this to the best of my ability very soon. Since I am redownloading my own sims from here (lost everything after all) I will be fixing them up with CC for myself anyway. The only problem I have with doing this is the fact so much CC, in terms of makeup, is not labeled in game & I have no idea where I got it. But I hope if I get at least most of everything labeled correctly then that will be okay :)


Will I move on to Strangetown or Veronaville after this?

- I really want to do Strangetown sims since I absolutely love them & miss Aliens in TS3 like crazy! Seriously EA, whyyyyyyy oh why have you not given us real Aliens again!? And why oh why was Luna Lakes not an alien neighborhood!? *poutpoutpout* But I am not sure if I will do Veronaville since I never really played that neighborhood & feel no real connection to it or desire to have them back in TS3. However, I will not say never!

______________

If anyone has any other questions or requests just let me know :) I sat down this week & cleaned out my overflowing downloads since I went a bit crazy with this new computer -had over 8gb of downloads, lol!

Now that I am back I am going to try & catch up with all the legacies I am behind on, can't wait to see you guys in LJ land *passes out cookies & dr pepper*

*peeks head around the corner*

Hi everyone! *waves*  I got completely sucked into life & preparing for ME3 by replaying ME2 then having huge DA2 battles with my guy to see who was the best... I totally kicked his butt!

ME3 broke my heart by having an ending that not only made everything you did in ME1 & 2 for the past SIX YEARS completely invalid, but then made zero sense in terms or lore & previous knowledge of anything & THEN randomly had this escape thing with people that should be dead that apparently all abandoned you on Earth to run away....

yeah.

*cries forever over my favorite game series being ruined by sucky ending*

IN SIM NEWS... I have been catching up with you guys the past few days & reading/commenting on legacies -so much goodness! & I finally got around to starting my new one!  Really loving my chick & look forward to hopefully posting in the next week or so. <3

GOT MY NEW COMP!


I got the computer I mentioned earlier, opened it up & upgraded with my goodies from old comp so now it is all pimped out!  Sadly I haven't been able to give it a good test run b/c .... I'm doing nothing but downloading.

*bangs head on desk*

I forgot how looooooooooong it takes to do this!!! I downloaded hair for

OVER SIX HOURS!

SIX. HOURS.


& I do not even want to think how long it will take me to get my patterns back!

So.

Bad News:
  • I lost all my sims I have ever created. *cries so hard over that*
  • Lost every save game for every game I ever played. *weeps over lost ME1 & ME2 saves*
  • I will be spending probably 3 days or more just re-downloading for TS3.

Good News:
  • I HAVE A NEW COMPUTER WITH AN AMAZING PROCESSOR & HARD DRIVE THAT ZOOOOMS ALONG!
  • I have set up a private mediafire account for myself that I will be uploading any sim I create to for safekeeping from now on!
  • I am thinking about doing a pre-legacy with the new heir!

Thoughts on New Legacy:
  • It will be Superstar themed, all the heirs will go into SOME kind of show business using LN & Superstar! Though I'm sure there will be a 'rebel' or two!
  • I am thinking that this go round I will probably not do totally random rolls for heir traits, since I am going to roll with a theme I may plan out a certain career for each generation *nods*

What do you think?

Would anyone be interested in reading a
prequel following my chick growing up?

Me again! I completed the Dreamer family this morning & hope you guys love them! Will you let Darren find his true happiness with Cassandra Goth? Will Dirk fall in love with Lilith Pleasant all over again? Or will you take them down a different path? No matter if they simple become townies in your neighborhood or you give these guys their own stories I can't wait to see it!

Miss a TS2 to TS3 Download?

Pleasant Family l Goth Family

& today I bring you...
The Dreamer Family!


- Darren & Dirk Dreamer -



The Dreamer Home
If you look at the TS2 version (google has one I'm sure!) you will know I changed the front of the house a bit & also added one extra tile onto the right side of the home for a bit more of a symmetrical look.

Hi again! Today I finally finished my TS2 versions of the Goth family & home!
I hope you guys like them, they were so much fun to make & I can't wait to drop them into my legacy neighborhood to see what kind of trouble they get into :)

(don't forget to check out The Pleasants!)

The Goth Family


- Bella, Mortimer, Cassandra & Alexander Goth -


Goth Manor
If you go back & look at the manor from TS2 you will see I made a few changes, mainly the fact I hated the windows they used so I instead choose to use new ones which I think look much better. I also used a more ~epic door & put stone on the main part of the house. But other than that it's a copy of the TS2 version! :)

I have been in SUCH a rut for months now -sigh, but I did get inspired to do something in TS3 yesterday! I suddenly got in the mood for TS2 families -not TS2 (ick cannot go back to THAT gameplay!) but for the characters I always loved in it.

So I decided to remake them & their homes!

My first project?
The Pleasant Family!

So many people ask me about Awesomemod so I thought I would just make a post about it for easy access of information for people


  •   What is Awesomemod? To put it simply: it just fixes all the crap that EA was too lazy to deal with. It makes your game better on so many levels & far too many things for me to mention here.

  •   Is it compatible with mods from Nraas Industries? Yes, unless otherwise stated. I use Story Progression & Master Controller from Nraas along side awesomemod & have never had any issues
    -as long as you set Awesome's config file properly.

  •   Where can you download Awesomemod? It is located here, any of the 3 links works.

  •   AwesomeMod Configuration Tool is located on the same page as linked above, click it to go to the customizing page. - There are tons of options but I will highlight the most important

    1) If you are using Nraas SP then the very first thing in the config file (UseAwesomeStoryDriver) needs to be set to Disabled.
    2) CAS & Sim Creation Features -find this section of the file.
    3) CASSliderScaleIncreased, set this to ENABLED
    4) CASSliderScaleMultiplier, located beneath the previous one, I like to set mine to 3

  •   What do those last 2 things do? They allow you to create more unique sims by magnifying the sliders so you can have the best sims possible!

  •   Where can I find more sliders than the game has? This is a custom search for you on MySims3blog, follow this link, every slider that has been created for TS3 is located within this search! So just browse the pages & snag anything you want!

  •   Will Awesomemod break my game? No. No! NO! This is one of the safest mods, I have never had any trouble with it unlike the trouble every other mod out there has caused me. From the day awesomemod came out I have been using it & I never play without it.

  •   Is it always updated for new EPs? Yes, sometimes it takes a few days -max a week, after an EP comes out for this to be updated, but it always is. While in testing, pre-updated releases, you can find the mod here

  •   Anything else you should know? Just like other core mods such as Story Progression by Nraas, if you take out Awesomemod from a hood that has been using it then it can mess up your game. Mainly this is b/c the mod fixes so many things, so when you take it out (why on earth would you unless you ignorantly blame it for a problem you are having :P) your neighborhood will be borked and possibly become unplayable.


____________________

Hopefully that answers any questions you guys have :) I get asked something about awesomemod almost every update I put out, so I thought I should make something like this so I can link if ever asked again to save me from saying the same thing over or forgetting to mention something. :) If I left out something anyone wants to know then just let me know & I will edit this! :D

More information can be read in this thread I typed up @ NH.

You can tell I played though this entire update while feeling horrible.
Usually I am crazy picture snapping happy, but I hardly have any pictures considering how much time passsed. Oh well, I guess that just means Generation 2 is moving fast like a bunny. :)

I also think I may include the heir poll at the end of this. Granted Cecilia is still a child at the end of this update, but I plan on playing more tonight & tomorrow so I may be to the point I need to know soon.

First of all ... I totally lied to you guys!

I just knew that this would be the last update before the heir poll, but apparently I totally misjudged my gameplay timeline! Or really it's the fact I played so freaking slow & snapped over 200 pictures that I realized - HOLY CRAP I just need to freaking update!

I thankfully cut down the pictures to less than 120 though, lolol, it was hard to do! I got SO SNAP HAPPY with all the gooey family love going on - lulz!



History of House Amell
Anora FINALLY decided who she really wanted to be with
She got knocked up again - yes I am a crazy person ...
The house is overflowing!


follow the luv train!Collapse )

Am I for real?
Updates this close together? Let me explain ...
I occasionally go a week or two unable to sleep. It's a female thing *sigh* I have endometriosis & one problem I have when things get bad is that I cannot for the life of me sleep. I may snag 2 or 3 hours here & there but that is about it per-night for sometimes weeks at a time. It passes ... but always comes back.



BUT! hopefully you guys don't mind when I try to keep my mind off my UGH by simming most the night!
So expect this update today & maybe even on this evening or tomorrow as well!



History of House Amell
I died.
It was horrible.
You all saw the blood fest that was the last update.
Your pity soothed my whimpering soul.

...Now get ready to go WTF!?!?

Holy Snickerdoodle!!!Collapse )

Ah, the joy of being someone who has trouble sleeping *sigh*

I decided to try my hand at building a home for Simsaholic & I dunno how in the world I feel about it. I just have to say that building with only base game & no CC is freaking HARD MAN!!! She only has Ambitions & well I was worried I would add wrong things in so I just skipped over anything that had a little icon on it, lol!

However, she does have TSR, so I used 2 things from there:
Mutske flower
RicciNumbers curtain

I didn't really WANT to use a bunch of CC I would have to keep track of,
but just randomly clicked those so rolled with it.
I never want to build without CC or Textures again *cries*

I hope this is okay!

You will need some alcohol with the update to come.

Someone asked where I got my traits, etc icons from & I decided to just upload my collection for everyone. I did not make most of these, only a few I could not find around the internet, but maybe they will be useful to you guys :)
