1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / SimPE freezing on: February 11, 2007, 12:23:49 pm
Well, I downloaded Milkshape because I wanted to start making stuff. But whenever I try to start Object Workshop it freezes. I really want to start making stuff, but I can't if OW doesn't work.
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Resolution change? on: February 06, 2007, 01:47:09 pm
As seen in a previously made topic on here, I'm having trouble changing the resolution on TS2. I changed my computer's res to 1024x768... I think... but nothing happened. I also wanted to know if it would be faster if I changed the resolution. Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst's speed changed when I changed the resolution, and not for the better... no resolution changes appear in Display Options in the game, either.
3  Simmers' Paradise / Sims Stories / Sand Ocean: The Legend of Makrok on: January 31, 2007, 12:14:55 pm
This is my first story, and it's not done yet, I'm up to the fourth entry. DO YOU KNOW HOW FREAKIN' HARD IT IS TO TAKE PICTURES?! Anyways, it's about... well, you'll read it, and then find out.

"My name is Dread. I was born on planet Makrok. I was sent here to tell Princess Kait about Comic's evil plan." This was what Dread Morroy said to the police officer talking to him. The police officer looked at him with a grimace, and spat on the ground. "You must have brain damage. There's no planet called Makrok, and you... you aren't making ANY sense. No princess exists anywhere on earth, and nobody is named Comic." Dread was ordered to stay in the hospital for a month, due to his... accident. "I'm not staying here. You can f*****g kiss my ass, I'm not staying here." Dread backflipped out of the chair he was in, and the police officer looked shocked. "STOP HIM!" He bellowed at his guards, after Dread had left the small, dark room they were in. He was... he was being shot at! The guards of Officer Kommor had been shooting at Dread, but every onlooker was shocked at the scene. "Outta my way." Dread said to a cleaning man who was pushing a cart full of cleaning supplies.

Dread jumped into the cart and started to push with his arms. "Get out of the way! MOVE!" Dread screamed as escaping. Dread escaped, but only just. He jumped out of the cart when he pushed through the doors to the lobby. He jumped from the cart up to a light mounted on a wooden pillar, and then again to a higher one. He ran along the top of high-hung lights on the ceiling. "Get him. I don't f*****g care if you find him dead or alive, get him." Said Officer Kommor, but he was fighting a clearly losing battle. Dread had mounted himself like Spider-Man ontop of a banner over the front door, and he smirked. "Are you completely sure you want to follow me? Totally sure? OK... have it your way..." Dread jumped out the window by the front door, and Kommor and his goons followed him. "Where is he?!" Said Kommor, but he knew as soon as he said it. "You said you were sure," said Dread, mounted, Spider-Man-like on top of a street light. "so now I'm going to show you why I asked..." Said Dread. "Hold on..."

"Hahahaha... Dread... I had a feeling you were here." Said the cold voice of a gaunt-faced, big-lipped woman on top of the hospital banner. "Exactly who are you?!" Yelled the police officer, but before he could finish his sentence, the woman grinned evilly. "You shouldn't be here... you don't belong..." All of a sudden, the woman's skin busted apart, and turned green. Fangs sprouted from her teeth, and her eyes turned almost the size of tomatoes, and turned yellow. "YOU DON'T BELONG HERE!!!" She screamed as she raised her hand, and a yellow ball of energy appeared. She seemed to be charging it, and Kommor looked more scared as the seconds passed. She fired the ball from her hands, and when it hit Officer Kommor, he was dead before he hit the ground. "Mayar... you aren't like this! Stop this evil from controlling you! MAYAR! You aren't... this..." Yelled Dread. Mayar turned back human... or as human as she was. "You have no power against me... you foolish boy..." Dread looked regretful... "DREADFUL THUNDER!!!"

As Mayar squirmed in pain, Dread looked sadder by the second. "Mayar... I didn't want to have to do that... Solomath, release Mayar from your dark curse!" Suddenly, Mayar got up... her head was turning around! Fangs were, once again, sprouting from her mouth, and her skin became green once more. "Dread... ahhh... you can... find Kait on... Crymara... g...o... t...o... h...e...r... uhh..." Dread looked shocked, as this "Solomath" person seemed to have released Mayar for a split second. Dread looked regretful, but he backed away from Mayar and jumped off the building. "Now... where is Crymara...?" He said slowly. Dread ran off into the night, wondering what Solomath was doing to Mayar at this moment. "No time for this... I've got to get to the desert island, and quick." He said. Dread ran down a deserted road, going to the harbor. He found a boat of researchers going to Crymara, and decided to hop in the boat with them. "Got room for three people?" Said Dread. More to come, soon...

Dread pushed the boaters into the water and jumped the boat. The waters thickened and the sky blackened as he rowed down the canel. Tempers between the water and the boat rose, and the now tar-colored water was getting dangerous. "This'll be one hell of a ride..." Sneered Dread, glancing at the waters below. Fish swarmed, sharks swam, and an undeniable darkness rose from below. Suddenly, in the distance, Dread saw a light appear from below the sea-floor, almost a mile away. He floated forward faster then before, and came a foot away from the light. All of a sudden, the waters rushed and slammed about faster then ever, and a head peaked out from below the water. "Alien, turn back or face pure power." Came a cold voice from below the water. "I'm only here because I was told to come..." Said a meek Dread, but it was too late. The rest of the head's body came out of the water, and it was clear why he hid. He was a merman with a rainbow tail and wings. The trident he held in his hand was made of coral and fish bones, and his skin was blue. His black wings accented his dark hair, and his hollow eyes were wrapped in swollen eyelids. "Fear me, I am Koranga, dark lord of the sea!" But Dread didn't fear him, or even notice him. He powered up a ball of energy and blasted it at him. "Gha... you win this time, alien... well... played..." and he sank back into the sea. After hours of sailing, Dread finally got to Crymara. "Now to find Princess Kait..."

Dread left the boat and walked upon the desert island. "So... this is Crymara, huh?" He said as the sand crunched below his feet. After what seemed like a mile of walking, he encountered another living thing, a snake. He looked at the snake, but his gaze went immediately to the hills far away. "You realize you'll have to climb those." Came a cold, raspy voice. Dread looked confused, and with a short glance back at the snake, asked the voice, "Who are you... where are you... what are you?" But his answer came as soon as he asked. "It's me, the snake. I've been sent here as a... a guide..." Dread looked shocked, but didn't ask another question. "Come on, I need to get to the castle." He said firmly. Walking up hills, sliding down them, jumping across quicksand, or simply walking, this was a horrible trip. Finally, they found a massive, glimmering castle in the distance. "I'll bet that's it..." Dread smirked as he ran towards it, only to find a lock on the door. "What the hell?! I need to get in! Ahh..."

It any good? Feedback welcome and wanted.
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / How do I upload my stories? on: January 30, 2007, 07:58:35 pm
Well, I want to upload Sand Ocean one, but I can't find the pictures for it. I looked in My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 2/ Storytelling, but it only has the picture I selected for my latest entry. I have three entries so far, but I only have the latest one in storytelling. Also, is there any way to get the text from it, but not have to copy-&-paste it from the game? Thanks in advance.
5  Simmers' Paradise / The Shape of Stuff to Come / Dread Morroy on: January 30, 2007, 05:27:55 pm
Dread Morroy is the main character of Sand Ocean. He's got black Cloud Strife hair, the black, Neo-ish trenchcoat thing, and, I have to say, he's hot... for a guy.
6  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / How do I minimize it? on: January 26, 2007, 04:47:19 pm
I have stuff to do. Checking posts on here, or simply browsing the net, I need to be able to minimize it, but it always takes so damn long to minimize it when I press the Windows button, and even longer brining it back up. Is there any other way?
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Resolved: Cannot Hire Employees on: January 24, 2007, 03:31:41 pm
Well, I got Open For Business again last night, and... well, I went to sleep. Well, first thing this morning, I started playing it, and it was working fine, but then I went and made a business. Well, everything was working well there, too, but then I went to hire some employees. Well, once the little phone animation had ended, it said:

Object Error:

name: Controller - Business - Hire Employees Dialog Populator
Stack size: 2
Error: Undefined Transition.

What can I do? I tried using a computer, too, and the same thing happened. Can someone please help me? I really want this to work.

Oh, by the way: Comicalmuse, you're being used as my wife, and we have good looking kids.
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sims *1* Installation Problem... on: January 22, 2007, 10:58:01 am
Well, sorry that this has nothing to do with Sims 2, but it does have to do with Sims. Whenever I get to 95%, it says "Component transfer error," then it says Deluxe Edition disc one isn't in... of course it isn't, it told me to put in disc two! So, I put in disc one, I click "try again," but all it does is close the installer. I had to re-format my drive, and I thought before I did that, that it was a problem with my computer. But, apparently not. Can someone help me with this, I really wanna play Sims 1! Well, really Vacation, but...
9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Family Fun problem... on: January 21, 2007, 02:12:42 pm
Well, I tried to re-install OFB and FFS, but when I try to play them, it says files are missing and to re-install it... I did... a few times, but still it says files are missing. The catalyst of this is this: I burned them on a custom disc, a DVD. They're both on the same DVD, but I copied them back to the program files folder. In case you're wondering, yes, I do own it, but I copy and re-burn all games to a blank disc in case of issue... an issue even happened to the two discs, they were beside each other and my brother ran a magnet over them. Reasons like that are why I burn games again. Anyways, I don't want to have to buy them again, so is there anything I can do? I really want OFB (more fun than just more objects, the influence meter, the ability to get that functional warrior sword, and even an outfit to go with it), but both would be better. This, I really don't think is illegal, but please post your reasons for it to be illegal in here, first, before locking it (I have the games, if you didn't read that back there, I bought them.)
10  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Cameraman mode crashing... on: January 19, 2007, 03:00:56 pm
Well, when I exit cameraman mode, it crashes, and terminates. What's wrong?
11  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Sim Families & Groups / The Official Cast of 20's! on: January 18, 2007, 05:00:21 pm
Well, I've got the whole gang, now. Custom content used:
eyebrows,eyes,lipcolor,eyeshadow: (Lacey Chabert Sim, by Jessica:
eyeliner: by Barcelonista (mts2) (Lacey Chabert Sim)
blush: unknown (Lacey Chabert Sim, don't blame me, I copied it off of WickedSims2, notice the lack of capitols)
skintone: by Enayla (mts2) (Lacey Chabert Sim)
hair: recolored by (Jessica) (Lacey Chabert Sim. Unfortunately, the link to the hair is gone... well, for this Sim, you won't need it)
dress: by (Jessica) (you need to go HERE to get the mesh by PronupSims called "MESH_RosematGiverny190205")
Those are the CC used on Jen (Lacey), but I don't think any was used on the two guys... Sims2Pack Clean Installer didn't say it did... it might be wrong, though. Pics below.

These don't come with lots, and I made the two guys. Once again, credit to Jessica for the best Lacey I've ever seen. If there are any problems, please, no one close this; it took me about four hours to do it, I made Matt today, from scratch, I figured out about the custom content, I took the pictures, etc, etc. By request, I'll make a video of them all hanging out. The links come the way you want. So, if you want to get just Darren and Jen, you can download just Darren and Jen. Like always, post your comments, inevitable quibbles and problems here.
EDIT:More custom content discovered:
Helaene - starstruck eyes - indigo (Darren).
12  Sims 2 Community Downloads / Self-Sims / The Dread... me... on: January 17, 2007, 06:28:59 pm
Well, this is me. I used only one bit of custom content, the eyes. I don't have the link, but they're called "NEEN(ROCK CHICK)OCTOBEREYES2B." Let me know if you have any problems, this is my first up.

Sorry, I took it at night.

Leave any comments about whether or not you like it.
13  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Houses, lots, CAS not loading? on: January 17, 2007, 03:44:05 pm
Sometimes, when I get certain custom houses, the game doesn't load anything. I don't know what it is, but I have to delete all my CC when it happens.
14  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / I want to upload my Sims... on: January 17, 2007, 09:11:06 am
I want to upload some of my Sims, but I -- oh, this is so embarrassing... -- I don't know how to turn them into Sims2Pack files... SimPE? Body Shop? Which one? Some other external program? I wanted to upload a Self-Sim
(actually, consider I'm 14, my Sim is an adult), but I don't know how... I'm an idiot, I know. Can one of you Sim-creating experts help me?
