I play Sims 2 and so most of my post will be about that.
I don't mind WCIF's, so feel free to shoot those, or any other questions my way.
I do occasionally post something that isn't related to sims, but those post are pretty rare and will be tagged accordingly.
Hi! Thank you, I’m really glad you’re enjoying it! :3
Kieran’s hair is Kewai-Dou’s 2000, converted by Martini and I did the retexture with Lilith’s textures and Pooklet’s colors. I haven’t uploaded it yet, because I’ve been really lazy with preview pictures (and I also misnamed it 3000, oops)
Anyway, I’ve uploaded it here, in case you’d want it :)
I do actually. I use Pheaenoh’s age mod, found here. It’s set up like this:
todders: 6 days
Kids: 12 days
Teens: 12 days
Adults: 35 - 40 days
Elders : 10 - 30 days
I haven’t played with it much, Calypso Island is my first “big” sim project since I got it, but I’m liking it so far :)
The first community lot on the island, finally :D
It doesn’t have a name yet, but Lily paid for it with city funds. Right now it’s “decorative”, I still haven’t decided on how I want my school system.
I’m glad this meme thing is floating around in spring. My self-esteem is so low in winter, but once the sun is out again, I feel a lot better about everything, including myself XD
1. I like my body. That’s probably an odd thing to like, and might sound conceited, but it (mostly) works as it should and after all the things I put it through in my teens, that’s something to be thankful for.
2. My hair. I like the length and the volume and that it low maintenance. All I need to do it the morning is brush it and I’m good to go :)
Hope you have a great day too!
Thank you! <3 *blushes
I don’t mind at all :) I “cheated” with that clock. I used LivingDeadGirl’s school clock, but it’s just decorative and I like the clocks in game to actually tell the the time. So I used boolprop snapObjectstoGrid false and stuck two of an_nas recolors of the llama clock onto it :3
Hi! Those ninja outfits came with Open For Business EP :3
No, that’s Lily Burkett from my BACC, without her glasses :3
I have no idea, to be honest. I don’t use the Visitor Controller myself, so I really have no experience in how it works and what it does :(
Maybe one of my followers knows?
I have a whole bunch of eye makeup, but these are my favorites:
And for eye liners:
E-studio Natural Liners (their site is dead, but you should be able to get them at the Sims2Graveyard.)
Hope that helps! :3
A day may come when I will remember to put a mesh I’m working on in Downloads when I’m testing it…
But it is not this day… apparently *sighs
Not sure if this is needed, but I thought I’d still share this!
A while ago, (like last year) my computer updated Windows 7, and afterwards all my sims had a weird black, opaque rectangle under their feet.
I managed to search the problem, and found that due to the Sims 2 now being unsupported, there are only temporary solutions.
The one that has worked for me is turning down my “Shadows” to medium. Unfortunately, you don’t get the highest amount, but at least you don’t have black rectangles!
There is a very helpful thread at leefish.nl, here, with information about and fixes for this and other graphics problems (such as not getting smooth edges or a resolution above 800*600 because your graphics card isn’t recognised) that are not just “temporary solutions”. Just FYI. :)
*saves for later reading*
Thanks! I too have the “black rug” problem and I think my Shadows setting is already set to Medium.
Another way of getting around it is to set simShadows to false in your graphics rules.sgr - that turns off the shadows for Sims (but only for Sims, not for objects) completely. The thread I linked to explains how - and I know Kiri, the author, is happy to help if needed. She’s saved the sanity of many a leefisher that way. :)
Oh! I might have to try that, I miss my pretty shadows, but I couldn’t roll back my drivers because other games do need them to be updated. This is perfect :D
