Featured in SF Magazine Holiday Issue 2012

Good evening, lovely people!

A couple of months ago the lovely Asia of SF Magazine contacted me and wondered if I would be interested in them featuring my Sims. I almost fell off my chair, but of course I said yes - what an honor!

Big hugs & thanks to Asia and the rest of the staff at SF Magazine!

Seasons On A Mac

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but I've been working quite a lot. Not only that, but the fact the Seasons turned out to be an epic failure for Mac users has almost turned me off playing completely. I was so excited about Seasons (and I still am) and I actually got it the day it was released. I only got to check out the new stuff and what not before reports of crashing, freezing and a slew of other issues started occurring on the Mac boards. Obviously a lot of Windows Simmers have issues as well, but as a Mac Simmer you have to deal with a whole set of issues related to that crappy wrapper Cider. I can only assume by EA's total silence on the matter that they realize what a poor decision it was to use Cider. 

Now, my game has been running fine for the most part, but in the last few months not so much - since the 1.38/1.39 patch I believe. That's when that effing "exception raised error" started popping up more frequently, as well as freezing or just crashing to desktop while saving. I play offline with nothing else running in the background, still these things keep happening. Bloody Cider. Build mode (I have a small island made for building where I build my lots) and CAS is working fine, so I am able to build and make Sims. All the issues are happening in live mode, at least for me. Which is why I haven't played my families in a while. Constantly saving and worrying about whether or not it will crash/freeze has just sucked all the fun out of playing for me.

LOL - That's Rich!

Hello all!

Over in Creative Corner there is a thread asking for advice on how to get your inspiration back if you have builder's block. Gotta love the reply from HIGHTIMES809, one of the most notorious re-uploaders (he has been caught re-uploading other Simmers work several times) in the community:


I think what he meant to say was: Sometimes I like to browse the exchange and forums for houses made by others. It clears my head and I start thinking about what small changes I can make before re-uploading and claiming them as my own.

The Hot House Remodel

Happy Tuesday, sweet cheeks!

So here we have a remodel of The Hot House on 3 Mango Way in Sunlit Tides. I remodeled it to be the home of Caspin's simself when she joins Yote and me in Sunlit Tides. I hadn't planned to share it, but then I thought maybe someone else would like this splash of color in their games as well.

Harper

Hello all!
I seem to be in a Sim making mode at the moment, so here I have another one to share with you. Her name is Harper and I hope you like her!

Magnolia Townhouse

Hello peaches!
Here we have a family townhouse. I like to think of this as a renovation of an old townhouse, were the traditional townhouse exterior look has been kept while the interior design is new and more contemporary looking.

Oh, The Joys Of Being A Mac Simmer...

Howdy,

I'm one of the lucky ones as I haven't had many problems playing The Sims 3 on a Mac. The minor issues I've experienced are the same ones Windows users have as well - and most of them can be fixed with mods. So my game was working fine yesterday and today I just got a "the game process could not be started" error message. I have gotten that a few times before but the game has always started despite that message. But not today. So I restarted my Mac, that didn't help - still the same message and the game wouldn't start. I moved my Sims 3 folder to the desktop to see if it would start without anything installed. Nope, no go. I repaired the permissions and restarted - ugghh, still no go. So I think maybe my game is ready for a clean re-install, it's good to have a fresh start sometimes. While I've been sitting here waiting for my games to download from GameTreeMac I went to the Mac forums and Tech Discussions - and holy moly! This isn't just happening to me, it seems this error is happening to Mac users across the board - none of us have changed or updated anything since yesterday and we all get this error and can't start our games today. I first found this thread in the Mac disscusions and then this thread started by a Mac user in Tech Discussions. I refuse to believe this is a coincidence. And I bet you if a SimGuru, and that's a BIG if, addresses this they'll probably tell us to re-install. In which case I'll reply: I'm way ahead of you!
If you're on a Mac and this is happening to you as well, please post on the thread in the Mac discussions!

/rant over.

Update 1 Sept. 25: The issue has been resolved, and SimGuruBrent just confirmed that on the Mac Discussion thread.

Update 2 Sept. 29: And the error is back...*roll eyes*

Update: She was featured! Woo-hoo!

Sunflower Bungalow

Evening, folks!

So here we have another small family bungalow. In addition to being CC free, it doesn't have any store items either. I know a lot of people appreciate store free houses.

I HAS FACEBOOK NAO!

Greetings, peaches!

Yes, I finally got off my purty behind and created myself a facebook page:



I'm quite lonely at the moment, posting pictures and commenting all by my lonesome - so I would surely appreciate some likes.

The Hideaway Sunlit Tides

TGIF, lovely people!

My friend Tim was generous enough to gift me Sunlit Tides. And as some of you may know, I can never leave things as they are and so I immediately started on some make-overs. Here we have my make-over of The Hideaway on 24 Paradise Circle:

More Of The Gang In Lucky Palms

Greetings,

I have another update and a bunch of pictures of the Cooper family in Lucky Palms. They mostly live a quiet and drama free life, I kind of like it that way. Though occasionally something out of the ordinary happens. To start off the pic spam, here is Tamiko feeding the family pet Rodrigo:

Stowe Summer House

Good evening, lovely people

Here we have a house I started on earlier this summer and when I only had the outside area left, I sort of abandoned it for a while. No reason really, I just never got around to finishing it until now. The exterior is based on a US East Coast summer house I saw in a magazine, the interior shots were few and not very good - lacking a proper floor plan. So that is all from my head. I hope you like it!

Highgate Hacienda In Lucky Palms

Bonsoir ladies & gents,

So here we have another EA make-over. Caspin mentioned earlier that her favorite place in Lucky Palms is up by the dried up lake beds. I guess you would call that the not so posh part of town. So I decided to check it out some more and that's when I came across the sad, dull little Highgate Hacienda and I immediately felt the urge to brighten up the place. And here is the result:

CC Free Versions Of Sims As Households

Evening, cupcakes!

From time to time I get asked about uploading CC free versions of my Sims. I must admit I have been too lazy to do that. Until I got this bright idea of grouping them in households. Pretty clever, huh? So first up we have my 3 guys Loke, Xander and Angus together in a household called Bromance (beyond cheesy, I know!)


Aug 9, 2012

Helena

Evening, folks!

After I joined that plus sized Sim contest on the forums, I decided to make more diverse looking Sims. So here we have Helena, another plus sized Sim for you.

Inez

Hello again,

Yesterday I was browsing the Gift Gathering forums on the official and I saw this Plus Sized Sim Contest. I decided to give it a go, and her is my entry Inez - I hope you like her!

UPDATE: She won! Woo-hoo!

Atsumi And The Gang In Lucky Palms

Hello peeps,

I seem to take these unplanned breaks from playing, I am always doing something Sims related like building and making Sims, but I can go weeks and months without playing my families. I don't really know why that is, because I really do love playing. Well, now I have a huge update on Atsumi and the gang - in other words it's a pic spam. After seeing all the pics on the forums of Lucky Palms, I decided to get it myself - even though I'm not a fan of EA worlds. But it is very beautiful and runs really smoothly with no lag (so far) - knock on wood. So, I made a new house for them, well it's not that new - it's just a re-modeled version of my Bali Bungalow

Good Old Great Aunt Berta

Hello,

I don't really frequent General Discussions on the official forums that much anymore, but maybe I should swing by more often. It can be quite entertaining. Like when winternoelle had a simple question about Lucky Palms and simpoints bundles:

Angus

Greetings,

Great clothes for the guys in the Diesel SP and so I made a new guy that I would like to share. His name is Angus and I hope you like him!

Micro Family Home

Happy 4th of July to all you Americans out there!

Here it's just a normal day and so I finished a house I've been working on. It's a small family home (as the name implies), and I hope you like it!

Brynn - A Vampire

What's up, party people?!

So I thought I would do something different and make a vampire. Although I am a huge vampire fan in RL, I don't really care for the vamps in this game. They are just so...bleh. Anyhoo, I am quite pleased with how she turned out - so here is Brynn Frost:

Here We Go Again...

Good evening,

So a new patch is out *shudders*. I was just over at the Mac forums and surprise, surprise: there are issues with the patch. Who didn't see that coming? Several are reporting this when trying to install the patch:


And the whole uninstall/reinstall dance every time a patch comes out is getting old as Axed84 said:


But of course if you contact EA CS that is exactly what they tell you to do. It seems to be their number one solution for everything:


"You locked your car keys in your car? No problem, just uninstall and reinstall your Sims 3 games and you should be on the road again in no time. Thanks for paying a butt load of money for our crappy products. Have a nice day!"

Will they ever get it right? Oh, sorry - forgot this is EA we're talking about here. My bad.

There is some good news for us Mac users though, there is finally a Mac version of the Upload Image Changer. Check it out HERE. I've been using the Windows version with Mono for quite some time, but this is so much easier. 

Thank you for looking and take care!

It comes with Hidden Springs.

My Little Models

Hello!

I have been dying to try Traelia's Baby Love Pose Pack ever since she made it. So tonight I turned some of my favorite Sims into little tots using Master Controller. Here are some pictures of the über cute little models:

Some Old Pics: Cormorant Renovation

Good evening, ladies and gents!


I was just going through some of my flash drives to see what was on them. I found a whole bunch of crap. lol. But also some pictures that brought back some good memories. Especially the renovation I did of the Cormorant in Sunset Valley for Composition Magazine last summer. Sadly I don't have the house anymore. So I can only share the pictures with you.

Alexander House

Hei på deg!

For the past week or so I have been working on a house and now it is finally finished and uploaded. Play tested, appliances upgraded and checked with Custard. No 3rd party CC, only EA content.

Haven

Bonjour,

Very, very bored and a little grumpy today. So I thought I would make a Sim to cheer me up a little and it helped. Her name is Haven and I hope you like her!

Route Guano Arcade

Good evening,

Yeah, so I caved and bought Showtime the other day even though I swore I wouldn't. But I just really, really wanted some new stuff for my Sims. I wont be simporting and chatting in game though, not interested in that at all. So I will continue to play offline by myself like I always have. At any rate, I made this new venue, an arcade type of place with fun activities for the whole family.

Loke Aoki

Hey, hey...

I made Loke about a year ago and he has become my most downloaded male Sim with over 2, 000 dl's - which is a huge deal for me. So I thought I would give him a little make-over and improve his features a little bit as a celebration of sorts. Without further ado, I proudly present the new and improved Loke:

Forest Bungalow

G'Day,

I found the shell of this house in my bin a few days ago, I had completely forgotten about it. It was supposed to be a beach bungalow of sorts. But I changed it to a bungalow in the forest instead. I hope you like it!

I guess I shouldn't be surprised but I just saw this on my newsfeed:

Feature ME...Again!

Greetings,

The sense of entitlement that some people in this community have is beyond me. Like this person who apparently feels that her 4th feature is loooong overdue, as her other 3 features was 2 years ago. Jeez...


You want some cheese with that whine?

So far she's not getting a lot of sympathy on the forums.

Happy Simming everyone - whether you get featured or not!
