Ooooooooo *grabby hands*
^^ I’m definitely going to share, as soon as I have finished with the roads layout… might take a while though, I’m horrible when it comes to roads…
Huh… it’s been a long time since I posted anything sims related, hasn’t it? I hope everything is fine with on your side of the internet! ^^
Anyhow, in case you are wondering what I am up to, I’m still in the middle of working through my CC and my defaults trying to set everything up just the way I would like it to be…
Aaaand I have been trying to create the perfekt neighbourhood terrain… I was always unhappy that there are so few complete “regions” for Sims 2. You know neighbourhoods that actually “connect”. After some unsuccessful tries I’m finally happy with what I have created. I made a complete sc4 region with tiny citys to turn into new neighbourhoods for my sims, all I need to do know is decide which one I want to be the “main” hood and start with the roads…
damnit… dreamwidth seams to be down and I just wanted to go for a hunt for more hair defaults :/
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP DOING THIS. I BEG YOU.
if it is not custom content, don’t fucking tag it “custom content” !!!!!!!
SAME FOR TS3 AND TS4
I don’t even mind if people post requests on the custom content tags because it helps get the word out, but don’t post your story pictures on the tag. please. don’t. or preview “LOL TESTING” pictures. if it ain’t a request or a download, don’t tag it as such. please.
This needs more attention. I really hate it when I see sims 3 pictures in a sims 2 tag, sims 2 pictures in the sims 3 tag and sims 4 pictures in every freaking sims category known to man. Just stop. Tagging your picture including all these tags (if it’s say…for the sims 3) isn’t going to bring you followers, but it will make people scream at you.
A MILLION TIMES THIS.

Having this issue myself. Working on a fresh downloads folder right now but it’s so boring and tedious to do so.
I know, I already tried to just throw stuff out, ended up with 480 MB less… yay me? I think I’ll try again, maybe throw out anything that doesn’t come with at least one recolour… because I really don’t want to start fresh :(
well, the default replacement files always noticeably change their size. use compressorizer if you really care about having more free space, otherwise i don’t think it affects the loading time? sushigal’s way to clean downloads is very helpful :)
I already tried sushigal’s way, ended up with 480 MB less… that’s how good I am when it comes to getting rid of stuff ;)
Hmm, and here I was thinking you shouldn’t compressorize defaults…. like I said it’s worth a try :)
do you use compressorizer?
I did in the past, no idea why I stopped using it though. Although I remember that I never noticed that much of a differenze in file size and loading times, so that might be it:
Maybe I should try it again!
But I still have the feeling that I should get rid of all the stuff I never use (if only they wouldn’t look sooo pretty!)
Oh for heaven’s sake… That’s the size of my Downloads folder, WITHOUT Bodyshop stuff and my HUGE Defaults folder…
I seriously consider just backing this one up and starting fresh for all the build and buy mode stuff… but I’m just so afraid that I’m really going to miss stuff I had or that I’m not able to find stuff I really love again or that I will end up with an even bigger size afterwards.
On the other hand, I really need to cut the size of that folder in half, my game runs best if I stay under 8 GB *le sigh*
And a very big hello to my lovely new followers!
I just thought I let you know that I’m still officially in semi-hiatus (I haven’t been able to play my game in a while). I just moved back home to Austria after my fantastic time in Great Britain during the last school year (for those who do not know this, I worked as a foreing language assistant at a British grammar school), which took up a lot of my free time.
And I still have to finish my final paper for University (thankfully I was able to get an extension for my deadline), which means I have one more year to finish it but it also means that the paper is the most important thing right now.
I won’t say I will vanish or not play, because I know myself and “all work and no
simming play makes silivrin a very dull girl”, but I cannot promise to make any new meshes or defaults on a regular basis or update this blog very often.
That said I’m currently reworking my hairs (*cough* all three hundred of them *cough*) and then I want to take a close look at my skins and I think I also need to sort through the clothes I have and the build and buy mode stuff really needs some work too (I have way too many downloads -.-) before I will finally be able to play the game again..
Ahem yeah… what I wanted to say, I will try to be a bit more active but I cannot promise anything!
