Notice I Play All Sims Games

Currently I am playing Sims 1, 2, 3, and 4. I create for Sims 1,2 (if I can ever get SimPe working with UC otherwise I will only be uploading walls and floors), and Sims 3. I am planning to at least create clothing recolors or Sims 4.

I value each game for different things… albeit Sims 4 is not going to be my go to game due to missing/removed/ not in base game features present in Sims 1,2,  and 4.

Therefore, my downloads, and screenshots will be for all 4 games. If in doubt about screenshots/WCIF’s or downloads send me an ask. Also please make sure to read my tags since I will almost always try to label games #TS1, #TS2, #TS3, or #TS4

My TOU for content for all of my games is

  • If you use it in a lot credit me
  • Do not alter/mashup/recolor/edit my items without sending me an ask or a PM at Garden of Shadows, BlackPearlSims, or Mod the Sims. I am Deestarr/Deestar at all 3 forums.. you can also message me at TSR.. I am arelenriel there.
  • Do not convert my Sims 2 object meshes from Sailfinsims without asking permission via PM at the various sites I am a member of or sending me an ASK here.
  • Please do not put my content up either on the Exchange or the Gallery. If I want it there I will upload it myself.
  • I will take requests for Sims 1, 2, and 3. Sims 4 I will put up a notice once I am ready to start creating for TS4.
  • Sims 1 Requests: Walls and Floors
  • Sims 2 Requests: Walls, Floors, Lots, and Clothing Recolors at the moment. I will post on my Tumblr if I get SimPe working again at which point object recolors, and new meshes will be available.
  • Sims 3. Object Recolors, Lots
  • For clothing and object recolors for TS3 and TS2 (if I can get Simpe working again):) Please include the mesh if the mesh is from a forum site that I have to register for (that I am not already registered for), or if it is a mesh recolor for an object, accessory, or clothing item from a dead site that is not available via the Booty, or the Sims2. or Sims 3 Graveyards.
  • For Sims 1, lots indicate type of lot, also upload CC if you want a specific item that is not on an active site or on CTOccasions
  • Please note. I have Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, the Any Game Starter for Sims 2 does not work if you only have digital downloads or if you have TS2 multipacks other than Double Deluxe. Please don’t request TS2 lots unless you have all EP’s/SP’s .
  • With TS2 and TS3 lots please specify CC or no CC, furnished or unfurnished, and architectural style.
  • I can use the SimGameSelector for TS3 so if you have a request specify which EP’s/SP’s you want included
  • Not yet familiar with TS4 build tools, no lot requests yet.

I runmy own business please be courteous and limit the amount of requests you make. I can only complete about 5 requests per month.

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

Any congressperson who keeps up this bullshit will not have my vote for the next election. Remember while Comcast might pay for your Hawaiian vacation, myself and others like me are the ones who make sure you have a job- they won’t make sure you have a job to return to next election (well not as a Congressperson at least). We will .. Vote this bullshit out .. remember how many of your constituents participate in e-commerce because you keep allowing our factory and office jobs to go overseas because of corporate fuckheads like Comcast, Charter, GE, Microsoft etc. And remember that we have the power to ensure you stay in office.

Reblog if you don’t plan on leaving The Sims 3

I’m sad because a lot of blogs I like are choosing TS4 and completely dropping TS3. I just want to know if at least some people are sticking with TS3 or both TS3 and TS4

I’ve just started a new town as the first one was getting too crowded after 5 years of gameplay there, so I’m planning to play the Sims 3 as my main game for at least the five next years! ;D

Aw! Good to know I will be in such great company!

TS4 … not so much. This post sealed the deal for me.

Not planning to leave TS3 either the long list of no when compared to the short list of yes and the fact they are emphasizing features present since Sims 1-3 as “new” like emotions„, ummm emotional is when a Sim Widow/er weeps over a dead spouse, not when they just looks bored

Sims 3: Stuff from my old Tumblr

Thank you Honeywell, this is everything I have to say about Sims 4 and more —.. Sorry EA but you are making fools of yourselves please stop „ no one wants to be your beta testers for Sims 4, unless we are getting special exclusive in game content for beta testers, or a free copy of the game on release (after its been delayed to fix bugs) just like the beta testers for all your other games like Dragon Age Inquisition, Mass, Effect 4, etc will get.. in fact you paying me to get this game is about the only way I will have it on either of my computers.

THE SIMS 4 LET’S PLAY SUMMARYLIVESTREAM #3 - LIVE MODE
Live mode Let’s Play hosted by Shannon Copur and Matt Yang. 
In a nut shell, The Sims 4 fails to deliver on all of its promises.  The Sims don’t act appropriately, they’re not smarter, the routing isn’t better and the Sims interactions with each other are flawed. 
There are some positives but they are few and far between all the shoddy gameplay.
REPLAY AVAILABLE HERE
If you’re short on time go ahead and skip forward to 43 minutes in to The Goth family and just watch the last 20 minutes of the broadcast play out.
NOTABLE
The clear plumbobs indicate the Sims are all in the social group.
Sims can sit on the ottoman from all sides.
Museum Venue:  There is absolutely nothing unique or interesting to do or see.
Sims doing push ups in the middle of the bar. Grant told us Sims would act appropriately in venues but that’s obviously not the case.  
Sims change clothes where they’re standing — it’s instant with no attempt at simulation.
Plan A Social Event has goals and medals to be earned. 
No new or unique gameplay to be found.  If it wasn’t for the Main Goal menu with a list of quest objectives reminiscent of an MMO you wouldn’t even know it was a party.
Some of the goals were having Sims listen to music and have drinks together at the same time.  Which are ridiculous goals but, unfortunately, make sense given that the Sims are everywhere reading, playing chess and on the computer — if you want your event to look anything like a party you’ll be working for it.
Even with a Call to Meal option — which was the main goal of the dinner party — Sims did not eat together.  Some ate at the bar, some at the table and some didn’t eat at all.
SHODDYThe game. The Sims 4 fails to deliver on it’s promises and that becomes apparent once the gurus settled into the Goth house for a small amount of time. 
Insane clipping like we’ve come to expect — there’s no point in pointing it out anymore.
Sims are constantly moving and repositioning themselves.  There are so many examples of this I don’t even know where to start.  Whether it’s reading, eating, or having a conversation they do not stay put.
The book jumps out of Mortimer’s hand and just disappears.  And he instantly spins into a new position. [44:00]
Interactions randomly drop out of the queue or Sims just don’t do them.  Watch the romantic interactions snuggle, kiss hands, offer rose etc. [45:00]
The toilet fiasco running through out that ends with Mortimor peeing on the couch because he kept refusing to use a toilet.  They even bought a brand new toilet (remember, there’s no NPC to call) trying to resolve the issue.
Bella finds out she’s pregnant and just stands there lifelessly — no emotions to be found unless you consider moodlets to be emotions.
Sims walk away in the middle of conversations and the Sim carries on talking to themselves.
Sexy Pose.  She poses behind him while he’s on the couch and he reacts.  Sims seem to have no positional awareness at all.  [58:40]
Eating.  Two Sims sit down to eat and one of them gets up from the table in the middle of eating and moves to a random chair (not at the table) to finish eating.  [1:01]
Mortimer continues to refuse to do interactions — like taking a bath — after he peed himself because he, again, wouldn’t use the toilet. Any toilet. [1:03]
And the gurus run down the hour going into build mode since the game was glitching so badly.   This is why there’s no review copies of the game being made available — the game looks to be a mess and not fit for purpose.
