  1. Back to our regularly scheduled coffee time.

      Oof. I might need to take up coffee drinking at this rate.

  4. You guys! There is less than one week until Christmas! You have been warned.

      Eeek! Not that it makes a difference to my day-to-day life, but still, where did the time go!? I hope the holiday season is going well for you! 

  5. December means we've almost made it through this year. We can do this! *virtual hugs*

  6. Absurd statistics, but true. I've played TS4 for 1610 hours in 6 years. While I've played TS3 for 4921 hours since 2013 when I got it. That is about 3 times more hours in TS3 than TS4. I'ma TS3 fan true and true.

      @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.

  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.

      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.

      I prefer to just stick a set of defaults in and not have to worry about applying the eye color to every outfit every time. I'm lazy like that.

      That does not give me hope. Many of the good default ones I find don't have the violet color (going for realism, I guess?) or the black color (changed it to a dark brown, it looks like). And I'm only looking for the basic ones right now, not aliens, vampires, or mermaids. Someone has a video posted about converting non-defaults to defaults, but I haven't watched it to see if it is for non-default eyes that are labelled as accessories, skin details, or full face makeup, or if it is just for eye colors that show up in the eye color spot, but just are not defaults.

       

      I'm curious, though - which default eyes are your favorite so far?

  14. Do I want to patch? :fnorky:

      Are we talking Sims 4, or one of the older iterations? Or something else?

      My policy is, if I have this question, it is best to wait and see what issues other people run into.

  16. 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.

  17. I saw Red post something about a building challenge. I think we should get something going! Maybe we can start with the same shell and see what we all come up with?

  18. Why do fenced in gardens add to the tile count?

    1. nixicole

      nixicole

      Maybe TS4 reads fences like a type of wall? But that would be very, very vexing for me.

      Little late from my end, but same to you!

  20. If anyone (seems to be my usual intro XD) is still missing TS3 packs, it's on Steam right now for 75% off.

      I can confirm that Steam CD Keys for Sims 3 can be redeemed in Origin. I just got Fast Lane, Movie Stuff, and the 70s, 80s, and 90s packs. The only extra steps were that I did have to get the base game for Steam to be able to buy them, and I installed the Steam client to be able to see my game library to get the CD keys. Not sure if I had to do that second part, or if I could have found them online.

      Ahhh, that would definitely get the job done, too.

      Wow. So if I get the BG plus any SPs I want on Steam, all my original EPs and SPs will work on the Steam BG? That just seems too good to be true. :)

      I don't have the steam version, but that's awesome! I'll check origin to see if they're running something similar. I have all the EPs, but I'm missing some stuff packs.

  24. Looks like another 3 weeks on survivor island here in AR due to flooding!  We can not get out and the river is supposed to crest at 29 ft a ft more than 2011 when we were stranded out here for 3 weeks! I swear if I ever win a lottery I am moving away from snake bug infested river flooding AR!

      I would, too! Be careful, and I hope everything turns out alright!
