1  Welcome to / The Welcome Wagon / Coming back to the Simming Community! on: December 30, 2010, 06:40:21 pm
Hey All, I used to be a regular here on InSim as well as other simming sites! I think I might be returning to sims after a long break, and many chemistry courses in between!

I'm so glad to see the community is still going strong!
2  The Sims 3 / Sims 3 Buzz / Sims 3 for Xmas, already back to Sims 2... :[ on: December 30, 2009, 07:12:14 pm
I waited a long time to get the sims 3, we found it on sale, thought it'd be cool to give it a shot...however, i can't say how disappointed i am. I'm not going to say there aren't any good new features, but there are a seriously lack of important old features! Maybe i haven't played the game enough, but has anyone else found themselves switching back to the sims 2?

I don't know about you all, but here is why i'm going to continue playing the sims 2, the sims 3 has:

*awkward user interface (why are motives last and unchangable characteristics first?)
*annoying story mode
*strange "mood" feature to replace "wants" and memories
*can't edit the neighborhood (WTH???)
* sims have no interests to talk about
*no fit/fat scale to tell if your sim is losing weight, you just have to watch it or use the command box...
*town has building as objects, you can't stroll in and browse or explore
*default cell phone, this is unrealistic and annoying
*limited facial modification parameters (why do i have to download a hack to make my sims look different?)

There's more, but i'll stop complaining.
But what do you guys think? Am i being nit picky? I just can't understand why they'd take away key features from the system. We'll see what expansion packs hold for the future i suppose...
3  Simmers' Paradise / Clothing & Body Mesh's / Bloom's Neanderthal PJ Mesh with Sneakers on: July 24, 2009, 02:45:53 pm
I guess this a request for Bloom or anyone who knows how to add shoes to a mesh...

I was wondering if sneakers/lace-up shoes could be added to:

the Neanderthal PJ mesh (far right);topic=74257.0;attach=83546;image,74257.0.html


The wife-beater mesh:

I love these meshes a lot, but I wanted to make some Fall and winter clothes and such with normal shoes...

If anyone could do this, it'd be much appreciated! Many thanks! :]
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / Sims 2 being forgotten? on: July 12, 2009, 01:50:13 pm
I don't know about you guys, but i've found many of my favorite sites for sims 2 content seem to have nearly stopped uploading sims 2 content, often in favor for sims 3...sites i used to check everyday and find something new and excited, i find that there are only one or two new posts.
I know maybe i'm expecting a little much, for enthusiasm for a 4+ year old game to be maintained, but i still am kinda sad.
Am i the only one who feels this way? or are most people thinking "ditch sims 2, sims 3 is more exciting"?
Is the sims 3 better now that there are mods? Is the sims 2 going to be forgotten so quickly?
5  Simmers' Paradise / Clothing & Body Mesh's / Rio Alpha Multi Mesh like Bloom's CPU Alpha Multi Mesh? on: July 07, 2009, 09:08:32 pm
Hey! Is anyone out there willing to do a rio alpha mesh like the the CPU multi-outfit alpha mesh found here:,53937.0.html?

I dunno if Bloom is retired or not, is there a way i could/should request this from him? :]

11  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Residential / NEW UPLOAD FOR Elaborate Residential city lot PLEASE REDOWNLOAD 4th TIME--SEE NOTES on: April 29, 2007, 08:15:20 am

OK. so i went into the game...repackaged the file...and simply pulled it directly from the PACKAGEDLOTS folder in the Sims 2 folder under documents.

IMPORTANT -->This should work. If you have Sims 2 Installable Package
when it says install...a window will appear after you click INSTALL... however, UNCHECK "DEFAULT INSTALLATION" and under "SELECT FILE EXTENSION" Select "package" instead of "Sim2tmp".
If this doesn't work, this thread will be deleted entirely.


This lot was used in my entries in the "Who Wants To Be A SuperHero" contest

This is a huge lot and will slow down your game if you do not have a very good graphics card.

It was made with all expansion packs, no stuff packs. It uses the biggest lot possible.

There are three skyscrapers, 1.5 alleyways (the .5 is uber small, the 1 is to the left). a club and misc. rooms. LET ME KNOW IF THERE ARE ISSUES DOWNLOADING/APPEARING IN GAME...cause then i might have to upload an empty version.

very expensive lot. is furnished.

excuse my poor grammar. enjoy.

I'll post more pics as soon as i can.

13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Testing Cheats enabled issues plus more on: April 01, 2007, 11:35:33 am
I don't know about anyone else, but i cannot spawn the testing cheats in Seasons. I have all the expansions, it worked fine in pets, with all downloads. I've removed several hacks for seasons, so i don't think that has anything to do with it. I can get the [testingcheatsenabled true] pie menu, but i cannot execute any of the functions of the menu. Anyone have any suggestions?

Also, when i first installed Seasons, finally, my sims' accessories didn't flash blue when first entering a lot. After removing hacks taht were interferring with the game, the accessories began to flash blue again. My video card is Radeon 9600 and has the capability to run the game, however slowly, at the highest graphics settings it i so choose. (i have no problem with snow) Any advice? My accessories would flash blue in pets until i made them "change appearance" then they could have normal accessories... It's sad...i wanna use my awesome custom content accessories. please help!
