  1. @coolspear -

    Today I finally took time to check out this site you've chosed to "live on" and I signed up Just Because Of You! :whee:

    Although I'm not too happy about the incident at MTS, I am More than happy to see/find you here! Hopefully you will receive more respect and better treatment here and will make yourself a bit of "home". You may think that your awesome downloads are the main reason why people "stalk/follow you, but that's not the only reason (in my case)

    Your great creations are one thing, but the amusing little stories you add to each is not only something that hardly anyone does, it is also giving "information" about the Creator behind without being "interviewed":23:

    Thank you for not only sharing your gorgeous creations with us, but also a piece of  "A Beautiful Mind.:give_rose:

  2. I'm so glad I found you on this site! Glad you're here and continuing your hard work.

  3. Hi Coolspear!

     

    I just came across a mod that you used to have on MTS. It would let me put the Portable Galaxy Lightshow on surfaces. Will you be uploading that here? I'd love to have it!

      Hi, sharris8

      I'll be uploading that soon. It'll be in TS4 General Mods section when I upload. On my PC, it's in a folder with other object tweaks, such as No Fade Ceiling Lights, and I'm just working my way through the folders before I finally get to that one. Won't be too long.

      Not long now. Hope to have it all done during the course of the week. 

  7. Hi! Just dropping a line to let you know that I may or may not have stalked you here because I love your work and am glad you decided to continue with your work. Keep up the amazing work! You're an outstanding modder and I love your contributions to TS4 community. 

  8. Coolspear, when do you plan on uploading your Science Career mod?

      You're very welcome. Happy science-ing.

  9. Hello. I am going to go out on a limb here because I am desperate! You are a modder so I going to assume you know the ins and outs. I hope you know about Sims 3. I have downloaded premium content from the sims3 store. All the sudden content that has been in my game for years disappears. it's only objects, lots and worlds are fine. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and even extracted the content and converted it into packages to put in my mods folder to try and by pass the launcher and it just doesn't work. I can still play the game but all the objects I paid for I can no longer use because they just won't stay in the game! I have googled the issue and tried what they said. I even had a live chat with ea and they were not understanding! If you don't know can you direct me to someone who might? :(

      It was only very recently I reinstalled TS3 and downloaded all Store stuff again. Just when TS4 got toddlers! Though that was only coincidence. I noticed the launcher was different from I remember three years ago. The 1.69 patch put all the EPs and SPs for the game in a new place in launcher where you have to tick to make sure they all load, or un-tick because all of them together will overburden your game. (If Maxis just made TS3 64bit they wouldn't have to do these silly things. This procedure is them openly admitting they designed the game too weak to take all the EPs and SPs they continually sold us.)

      Not only that, but I never used Origin originally for TS3, but obviously using it now to download all my old TS3. What I found out, that was really blooming annoying, is that every other time, all the EPs and SPs were automatically un-ticked and if I load the game all I got was base game and nothing else. Is this the same thing you are mentioning?

      Did you install TS3 by discs, or digital downloads from Origin? If it's digital downloads then always start with Origin first. If I click on the launcher first before opening Origin, that's when all the EPs and SPs get un-ticked and I just want to start shouting and swearing.

      Open Origin first, start play via Origin. This will then start the launcher running. After launcher opens, get into habit of checking everything is still ticked in launcher, then press play in launcher. That's what I have been doing lately and so far so good, it doesn't automatically un-tick anything.

       

      Is any of this the same problem you are having?

       

  10. So sorry about the crap on MTS.  I love your work and have used many of your mods in my game.  I agree wholeheartedly with you and your stand on the situation.  I've tried my hand at modding and know how hard it can be and how much work goes into it.  The moderator should have stayed out of it and let you resolve it yourselves.  As for Dr. Chill, I think it's quite rude of him to come back and just take over like that.  I am really glad that you found a new home instead of just giving up.  I'd hate for the community to lose such an excellent modder over some people's lack of tact and decency.

      Hi, aparkison

      In devilgurl's case, I can't say for certain, but I would guess that she did not like being told to take down her remakes of DrChillgood's mods, now that he's back on the scene.

      devilgurl, like me, had remade a few of his. I did the no smash dollhouse one and faster eating & drinking. The irony in my own case was the dollhouse one is the very thing a month ago where I had my first rude awakening with an unfriendly moderator. A new modder made exactly the same mod, exactly the same, and after I reported this I was given the BS about mine was impossible to find. The double irony being, the new modder took theirs down as an apology to me, admitting to me in a PM that they did not search enough. (Had the rude moderator stayed out of it, I may well have still been on MTS today.) But then DrChillgood came back on the scene and redid his old dollhouse mod. Crazy irony, no?

      He approached me and said thanks for keeping his food & drink mod updated in his absence. (In other words, he wanted it back.) I hadn't reposted my dollhouse mod in protest to the moderator, so as far as DrChill was concerned, it seemed nobody had touched it while he was away!

      I was actually happy for him to take food & drink back. All the heavy patches these few months made it feel I've bitten off more than I can chew.

      devilgurl was not so happy after he posted same generic line to her as he had to me. I remember saying at the time she would not be happy about that, given she has posted her DrChill remakes on various websites. She did, of course, politely refuse DrChill to take down her versions. I guess a certain site moderator told her otherwise.

      Me, personally, if a modder has publically announced they have retired, and others takeover their projects, then they should not have the cheek to demand them back if they decide to come out of retirement. After all the hard work devilgurl put into them, they are hers now, not his.

      And the final irony. DrChill has only updated those mods that others had taken over. All the ones others did not touch in his absence, neither has he since his return. Sound fishy?

      NightTourch also took down his TS4 mods, in solidarity protest regarding my case.

      I sent you a PM reply so I don't clog this up. :9:

      Coolspear, I, too, took down my mods after the incident. wait, I don't have any mods. :dontknow2:

       

      But now that you're mentioning it, I did look through drchill's mods and I noticed that he hadn't updated the vast majority, after telling you in a post that he was back. I use sooooooooooo many mods (plus custom content) that if everyone keeps bailing my game is gonna lock up. I may have to learn how to mod if I can't keep up and find everyone anymore. :cry: And I'm not going to start modding. 

       

      If the moderator had stayed out of both situations, you'd still be on MTS and all would be fine. Not saying it's not fantastic that you're on this lovely site, but your situation may be having a chain reaction. and I'm skeered. :embarrassed-smiley-face:  

  12. When will your get to work mods be available?(Sorry if already asked.)

      Hello, JessykaSim

      Over the coming days I'll be steadily uploading all mods and their descriptions into the relevant sub sections. The doc and scientist stuff will be in the TS4 Career Mods sections shortly.

      If all goes well I should have all previous mods in place by the end of the week and then I can finally release some brand new ones.

      All the best, coolspear
