  1. 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!

      @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.

      @carlfatal Thank you for your suggestion, anyhow! I have noticed that the link is being updated with more mods recently, so hopefully more mods will be put up soon.

  2. Looking for cat jump proof blinds of sort. My mom suggested the cloth type that are more shades if you ask me. Ugh to trying to find something my cat won't throw herself into.

      I have, but with all the birds, she can't help herself.

      It's late nesting and I have 3 bird feeders, so she thinks all are for her.

      Oh! Her instincts are in high gear.

  3. Great. The cat has broken another pair of blinds dive-bombing into them to try to catch a bird outside. I wish I had pictures!

      I cant tell you how many bottom sheets mine have destroyed by the need to kneed before laying down!

      Sounds like cat behavior. I hope your kitty learns not to do that again!

      Glad that mine is too old to be racing up curtains anymore. >.<

  4. Had surgery (minor) friday. Hubby will be gone for 3 weeks, so I guess I will need to work out how to pace myself and not kill my leg. Hmm challenge accepted.

      Thanks everyone! My cat made sure I didn't move today by sitting on my lap.

  5. Finally stopped having seizures. I feel better, but don't know what caused them. Went to the ER and they were no help. I hate doctors for the record. Six months to get a second opinion. I might as well have gone to Mayo clinic if I could afford it!

      So sorry you have been having a rough time of it! Hopefully you will be able to find a Dr that can truly help! *hug*

      I am with you I don't really hate them but I don't really like most of them I love our vet I wish we could find a doctor for Kivak and I like her, our pediatrician on the other hand is wonderful he has done so much prevention with Cubbie and he is so healthy. Kivak and I are not sick luckily but I would really like to find a good one just in case. Keep getting better I had an aunt that had them they were caused by allergies of all things.

  6. Was just over at the official forums. Wish I hadn't gone at all. My brain hurts from misinformation and the "no that's wrong" responses to good information. Ugh!

      It is insane over there, Loralie! Maybe they should call it the psych ward instead of the forums.

  7. That absent minded moment when you realize you came looking for a mod, but downloaded a house instead and forgot which mod.

      I'm glad I'm not the only one! I think it was one of Blue's, but I still can't remember. I'm sure I will next time I run into the issue!

      I just download most of them, whether I've had the issue yet or not. An ounce of prevention, you know. :)

  8. Just got my computer back from being repaired. I just realized that I have the folder for TS3 naughty bits on my desktop. I wonder what the repair guy thought was in there!

      He had it for 4 days, so I'm quite sure he did. Oddly all he would find in there are the package files, but I'm sure he wondered about what I did with them.

    3. Rosewin

      That's almost as bad as having a folder labeled, do not open. >.<

    4. veiledstar

      veiledstar

      I moved it to my sims folder that has everything I'm not using in it. You are right Rosewin. It is almost as bad!

  9. Thinking of starting a Sim's asylum house after having so much fun with my Nraas house!

      I'll see when I get bored with my Nraas house. Or I might go back and forth between the two. I can't decide. :)

      Whatever works. :) I just started a new one, but keep thinking I should get back to my other game, too. Pre-approving use of my avatar sim for it. :)

  10. I hate our medical system. They need an overhaul.

      Ours too. It is a chaos.

      I guess what bugs me is "you aren't sick enough for us to treat you." Do I need to be on my death bed?!

  11. Anxious about tomorrow. Sigh.

  12. Wondering if I am sane enough to raise 100 kids in the sims. Well I always have the asylum to come to for a breather.

      You mean if you are insane enough. :P

      Honestly needing a some time in rehab outpatient, so I guess I can take some time for this too. lol

  13. Where do I start a thread to put up the kids of my 100 baby challenge? I was going to try to put up the first 3 YA's today.

    1. Katelinjens

      Katelinjens

      I would start the thread in the TS3 CC area called TS3 Sims. You usually can edit the thread at a later time adding more kids as they come along. :)

      Yep, if you're sharing them, that's the right section. If you just want to show picture s of them, it goes in sim-for-all. XD

  14. Cloudwalker has made my day! I have been wanting the Twallan statue since he retired and now I am so very happy to add it to my towns!!

  15. Due to health issues, I won't be dropping in on the asylum any time soon. I'm not sure how long I will be, but I hope to catch up with everyone soon. :)
