New House And New Town

Hi all,

So I've been playing my 2 favorite families in the same town (on 2 different saves) for quite some time now. Their houses were quite similar as well, with the same color schemes and such. The time had come for a change of scenery. And I really like how my make-over of Myrtle Bungalow turned out, so I made it a little more kids friendly and added 2 bedrooms in the back. So now Atsumi & the gang are in a new house in a new town.

The World Wants To Be Deceived


I've always wondered why people download this:

Do they really think this is a Sim? Clearly over 23,000 people thought so, and over 400 thought it was so well done they even gave it a rec...*facepalm*. I remembered that "Sim" when I came across this on the exchange tonight:

The description is priceless. 

So, yeah. The world wants to be deceived. Tsk, tsk.

Seafoam Cottage

I made Seafoam Cottage for a Norwegian Christmas calendar and now I thought I'd share it with the rest of you as well. I hope you like it!

A-hole Of The Year

'Ello, 'ello,

Over in GD Sgizzle09 had received some bad news about her grandma and wanted some cheering up. 

Fellow simmers started to show their sympathy and wishing her grandma a speedy recovery and so on. Except one. Mr. Always-On-Patrol-Thinking-He's-The-Shit himself, PsychoMasterX showed up with this remark:

Newsflash, a-hole: no one asked you to police the forums, so there really is no need for you to be on patrol. Not once have I seen this idiot utter a nice word to anyone. He even said on one of Bluebell's threads that we Mac users only had ourselves to blame for all the trouble with our games. Dude, you should ask Santa for a new attitude for Christmas. Or a new record, because your old one seems broken. I'm just saying.

That is all.

You Will Be Missed, Wendy

Good evening,

I just heard the sad news that Wendy, also known as Hillcrest1414, passed away on December 8, 2011. She was a wonderful creator and a great Simmer, and she will be dearly missed.

Her wonderful houses are still available at Neighborly Sims.

My thoughts are with her family and friends.

Myrtle Bungalow Make-Over

Hello again,

I'd like to share my make-over of Myrtle Bungalow on 3 Song Avenue in Sunset Valley with you. It was the first house my first Sims bought when they had enough money to buy a new house. TS3 is my first Sims game and I was such a n00b back then in June '09. I didn't know about cheats and I had barely figured out the Create A style Tool. So my futile attempts to give this house a make-over back then was rather...pathetic. lol. Well, I've learned a lot since then. So I wanted to re-visit Myrtle Bungalow and give it the make-over I couldn't over 2 years ago. I kept the original floor plan, but the landscaping is quite different from the original. Anyhoo, I hope you like what I did to the old place!

A Very Special Christmas Gift

Good evening all,

So 2 had become 3, and not long after the wedding both Atsumi & Alex rolled the wish for a baby.

And who am I to stand in the way of my Sims wishes?

The Wedding

The big day was finally here, Atsumi & Alex's wedding! Here they are all dressed up for the big occasion.

Greetings everyone,

I have a new Sim I'd like to share with you, her name is Yvonne and I hope you like her!

Serial Uploader


There is someone who has taken uploading to the exchange to a whole new level. I don't know whether to be amazed or appalled. Though I'm leaning heavily towards the latter. You see, this person has over 15 000 items in their studio:

And the number is rising fast, because every day this Serial Uploader uploads on average 5-6 pages of crap items. In addition to their own 3-4 different showcase threads on the forums, which are bumped frequently, they will also flood SimGuruHydra's stickied showcase thread several times a day. I always thought there was a limit to how much you could have in your studio. Clearly there isn't. And where is the culling in all of this? There are old uploads in that studio with just a couple of downloads. No wonder the exchange is clogged and glitched. I guess what I am trying to say is: STOP THE MADNESS! And also:

That is all - have a wonderful weekend!

The Basegame Starter


This is just an old build that I never got around to posting here as well, until now. It was made in April 2011 and it's a little starter on a 10x10 lot containing only basegame items. So anyone can download it regardless of what EP/SP or store items they have. Suitable for 1-2 sims.

More Of My Favorite Colors

Good morning!

I thought I'd share some more of my favorite colors. The first 2 ones make up the color palette used in Petite Posh Parlor. They can also be seen throughout my 2 main families homes, The Blackhearts & Atsumi and Tamiko. So yeah, a little obsessed with those 2 colors. lol. Anyhoo, here are the colors and their codes:

Thank you for looking - have a nice day!

Romance & Birthday


So I have kind of a big update on Atsumi & Tamiko - lots of pictures to show you. The 2 of them have been getting along just fine alone. But now that Tamiko's birthday was coming up I started to think maybe it was time for Atsumi to meet a new man. So I had my eyes open for eligible bachelors when they were out and about...

Petite Posh Parlor

Good morning!

Last night I made an elegant little beauty salon and I thought I'd share it with you as well. I hope you like it!

Another Mac Fail For EA

Oy ve, the farce continues. Origin will now let (unsuspecting) Mac users PAY for and DOWNLOAD Pets. Sounds fine and dandy, you may think. Oh, yeah it would be awesome if only Origin wasn't incompatible with Macs, and that said download wasn't for Windows only.

Want Hidden Springs For Free?

Sarz97 will be happy to tell you where to get EA's pay items for free right there on EA's own site:
Of course people pointed out that posting those links was not too smart (not shit, Sherlock!). To which she replied:
Enjoy your ban, Sarz97 - at least you have Hidden Springs and other assorted pay free items to keep you company!

Town Life Library Make-Over


I really like the library that came with Town Life, but since I can't leave anything as it is, I had to give it a make-over. And I thought I'd share it with you as well, hope you like it!

LOL - Seriously?


Today we have a question from grapescassie1:

I love that she posted this in Creative Corner. Me thinks perhaps she was hoping for some creative answers.

Bitter Much?


I usually hang out in the Creative Corner on the officials and I just came across this reply on a showcase thread:

Really, DarkAmaranth? So what you're saying is that people who have a lot of store items should refrain from using them in their uploads so that YOU can download them? Your reply really pisses me off, but I don't want to ruin this nice person's thread by starting a fight, so I'll give my opinion here instead. When I build something I use whatever store items and EP/SP's I have. Because that's why I bought them, you idiot. And don't think I didn't notice your (less than) subtle hint about your 205 items long wishlist. Pathetic.

What is that old saying? "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". You should remember that the next time a wave of bitterness comes over you, DarkAmaranth.

That is all.

Some MCR Stuff: A Gerard Quote And A Video

Good afternoon,

I watched Life On The Murder Scene again for the first time in a looong time yesterday, and ever since I've had this Gerard (he's so cute) quote in my head:

I used to watch that clip over and over again when I first got LOTMS. Good times.

And now for your listening pleasure: The Ghost Of You:

White Picket Fence

Good day to you all,

I really like Hidden Springs, but I'm not a fan of large homes. So I'm re-designing it a little bit and placing some smaller homes around. Here is one I just finished that I'd like to share with you!
