  1. Yesterday
  2. Five hour assessment today. My brain is fried but I finally gave myself permission to play sims.

      Yay brain break.

      Permission is always good!

  3. Earlier
  4. Can't decide which save to play, or go back to WoW.

      I think I can relate. I’ve been feeling more inclined to play TS3 or My Time at Portia instead, though.

  5. *shoves video link to a container house into the "for later use" folder*

  6. Feeling like all the areas I used to download sims 2 mods from have disappeared in the last 5-8 years. Makes me really sad I didn't back up more of my mods. Hoping my search for sims 3 mods won't be so difficult!

      @veiledstar,

      I will ask the ones, that I know, who still play Sims 2. For now: Here is, what is saved from Simbology:

      https://simfileshare.net/folder/92516/

      @carlfatal :loveshower:

      Thank you very much! Which mod, mod author and version is it? I'm not sure why, but the link to simfileshare sends me to just the generic folder shared by simbiology, instead of directly to the mod download.

      For some reason, the night I was downloading most of the mods from simbiology, everything kind of just disappeared from the website and started routing to the link for simfileshare. It was then down, saying that it was being edited for a few days. I can finally access the files again. I have looked at all of the "full collections" for each modder, if there is a file for that, and I do see quite a few of the mods that I was looking for that were posted to forums.

      I wish I had explanations/readme files as to what they are, but I have dug deep into some of the sims 2 wikis where dedicated people listed quite a few mods, what they do and where it links to the broken website link, which is when I start my detective work going backwards from the name/description. I have found a few working locations for websites that no longer exist, usually on simsfileshare.

      I did have some luck on the wayback machine on a few websites to "resurrect" them and be able to download files from it. I remembered accessing a website for a CC creator that used to make content here for the sims 3 so I thought I would try my luck at some of the old websites. I'm not sure how the sites are saved and for how long, but some downloads tend to be buggy on this. I think this has been put into the "last resort" category.

      Many people have re-posted a new link to their old files, as I mentioned before without even saying who the mod author is. That can be a double edge sword for another topic, though. 

      Sorry for such a long response!

      @veiledstar,

      I am really sorry, that this list was not really of use for you but it is all I know. I didn´t play Sims 2 since years, mostly cause of technical issues, and to find that specific mod, - well I think, the only way is to check the whole list, or download all stuff there, and let your computer search for a specific word then. At least, that is, what I do in such cases.

      I am mostly playing Sims 3, and the only thing I can do, is searching for this mod, if you can give me at least a part of the name. Although even then I am not sure, that it is hidden in one of my saved Sims 2 documents folders.

  9. Well study has started for me again and we are off with a bang. I already have a large theory assessment due in two weeks. On top of that I start a new job in a month, thankfully the hours will build gradually as I learn the ropes. Really excited about the future, but it does meant gaming will take a back seat again. I will try and pop in here now and again.

      I know you'll be great at the new job. You're Rose! And the studying that is old hat for you now. Go get them!

  11. Discovering things. Namely, that I am apparently picky when it comes to default eyes.

      Keep me updated on how that turns out, please. You've tested tons more eyes than I have. I do not have the patience for it. 

    3. RedMallie

      Have you checked Aveira’s and Kijiko’s default eyes?

    4. nixicole

      @RedMallie Among others, yeah = but thank you. I'm more into realistic looking eyes, and so many are either maxis-match cartoonish, or I don't like the look. I think I found one I might be sticking with on MTS - I even went to the trouble of grabbing Sim 4 Studio and updating them to quit glitching on Spellcasters. I did stumble across another that I might try, eventually. We'll see.

  12. I swear if Vlad comes into my Sim's house again, I'm going to put a stake through his heart. I don't mind once in a while but Jesus dude!

      He annoyed me so much I invited him on a date. During the day. To a venue he couldn't get inside.

  14. Hi, @Kimi! Can we get a thread in Coolspear's section to serve as a depository for any of the mods we update for Coolspear? It would be awesome if we can get all of the updates in one place. I uploaded an updated mod in one of his crafting threads recently. But if MenaceMan44 and I do some of the updates along with other modders helping Cool out, we would appreciate a place where we can upload our "fan updates". :) Many many thanks for all you guys do.

    1. Kimi

      Kimi

      That's a good idea, but let me think of how we can get that done. I'm almost thinking that just including the update in the original thread, like you have already done,  might work. And then we can have one main post with the information.

  15. Hey @coolspear I'm wondering if we can have your permission to post updated mods in your section as a fan-based community to keep some of the popular mods updated? I checked one that I use all the time, and it seems EA did a lot of code cleaning which screwed up almost everyone's work. I use your writing mod that broke with the recent patch. So I made a small update for my own use. When I came here, I see a lot of comments asking when the mods will be updated. I thought "Gee. Cool made a big announcement about retiring from modding. People still want them anyway." I would like to know if it is ok for me to upload a fixed version for your writing mod. No guarantee about the others. I just figure it would be a small contribution as a form of thanks for your years of modding and guidance.

    1. coolspear

      coolspear

      Yeah, if you feel up to it. Menanceman has already done exactly that. He updated the Voidcritter mod and, rather than post it on MTS with all his other mods, he uploaded the 1.63 update in the mod thread here. So great, if you want to do same with a few mods. Kimi says it's fine, as long as I agree. So please, by all means, fix up whatever you feel. It's all good. Thanks, Chaavik.

      Thanks. Sending you a virtual beer to enjoy! :)

  16. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I used the Buffet Tuning for my new Classic Dining Set - find them here:
    (LINK DELETED)
    (and matching dining tables here)
    (LINK DELETED)
    I also have advanced plans for medieval sets.
    thank you for the mods! :)

      I did not know that! Hi, @Ingeli if you could please post the links again in the comments section of the Cornucopia Buffet Table mod, then I'll know where your mods are. Since your Buffet Table does rely on that Buffet mod's files, it's best if the links were there. Plus I cannot recall if I saw a link to the Cornucopia Buffet table in your mod description? I know you mention my name (though not spelled correctly) as you mention your mod uses my files. But given that the Cornucopia Buffet Table's files are very unlikely to be broken in patches, - (Maxis simply have no need to re-tread over that old ground. I've only ever updated it to include new foods, never because Maxis tampered with the files.) - it would be nice if there were a link on your end directly to the original table, so those downloading your mod can see the original resource. That's usually the way of it throughout the community; a link and a credit. Thanks.

      OOps. OK :)

       

  17. I come here to catch up on the latest posts from everyone. I find people asking about mod statuses still. Suffice to say that I was not happy after reading some rude remarks from those who only came here to bug someone about certain mods. Please keep in mind some of us retired from modding for good reasons and would be happy to help them find alternatives if they asked nicely. Or update those mods themselves.

      Those individuals only joined for what they can get from this website and not for what they can contribute.  I think you'll find that the resident members are all understanding and respectful towards the creators.  Unfortunately, the bad apples cannot be weeded out until they surface to display their lack of good breeding.  Don't let them sour your opinion of this website; I've been here since around 2009 or so and I can safely say they're a nice bunch of people.

    Well, it's not Christmas, but I can still ask you not to be a jerk.

  19. Random Journal Note: I'm a great believer in 'incompatible mods' in TS4, js. so many people don't bother to 'dig a little', if they have a problem with their game :lolhuh: 

     

    Happy Simming, and always read the fine print :LooksGood:

  20. Back.  Recent Determination:  Wow.my Vivobook can play Sims 3.  

  21. It works - but why do they have to make it so hard?

  22. A friendly reminder: Please check over the rules again. A lot of people are quoting the post above theirs. This is something that shouldn't be happening. 

    Thanks!

  23. Thought I had better check in. All is well here but I have been really busy with study. I have finished one major assessment and I have three assessments due in the next few weeks. Plus we have been renovating the house. I opened sims for the first time tonight, but won't have much time to play until around the end of June.

    Hope you are all safe and well. :grouplhugpull:

  24. Hai thanks for all your hard work and what you do. I was just thinking about the gift of sulani power is like the instant upgrade. was seeing if you might wanna look into making it have no delay as well.

     

    1. coolspear

      coolspear

      This is not the right section to make requests. Site rules say do not do that here.  And I don't generally take requests either.

      Finally, as I only make mods I'll actually use in game, I'd have to say no to making the Sulani Power an instant trait for all sims. Given it needs to remain an autonomous interactions for the visiting Sulani Spirits to use as part of their event scenario, when giving it to normal sims they too use it autonomously and often, and the regular raindown of volcano bombs becomes somewhat annoying - thank goodness for the forced cooldown delays! The normal sims I'd given the trait to, I took it off them. They just abuse it, it had to go. It needs to remain seldom seen and for event purposes only, as far as I'm concerned.

      Thank you coolest of the coolspear.

      oh sorry for asking then but Still THanks for your hard work on making all the other cool mods

  25. all is well with you sim-peeps. With the plague upon us and all. I has several cool residences on the gallery you have to check the "with CC" I don't really have cc just maxis match colors. Really cool micro builds to, check it out under my ea name instantmagic

  26. Oh. Em. Gee. Y'all, micro-home (and lot) boosts are no joke in TS4. I can't even get frustrated with the motive decays. My girl is only a couple days in and has two skills maxed. :o

      It is so epically useful for starting a new game with a new sim with low funds - especially if you don't have Seasons, and can do so much outside without worrying about negative weather effects.
